Detoxification is a fundamental bodily function. Our bodies have a natural ability to process harmful substances and eliminate them from the body. The organs involved include the liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and skin.
Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes that reduce the intake of toxins and improve elimination. It is like spring cleaning your house or clearing out the garage that has years of accumulated rubbish. Unfortunately, with all the environmental and dietary stressors that we place on our bodies, our natural system of detoxification cannot keep up. We get tired, run down and sometimes end up with illnesses. Therefore, a detox program is very important through out the year.
The aim for DETOX program should achieve the following 4 objectives
1. Reducing the load on the body
Avoiding sugar, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and non-essential drugs, therefore allowing the back log of toxins to be processed
2. Providing the body with vital nutrients
Consuming fresh, organic foods and purified water
3. Supporting the elimination through the gastrointestinal tract
Focusing on a simple diet of whole foods supported by appropriate herbal and nutritional supplements
4. Helping the liver maximise its detoxification ability
Using appropriate herbal and nutritional supplements to support the liver and avoiding processed foods and potential toxins
