Detox yourself back to health

There are many health benefits associated with detoxification, and in today’s world detoxing is important. Unfortunately toxins are very common in our everyday environment. Some examples of these toxins include heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals, food additives, and pollutants that are present in the air, water and food that we consume. As well as being exposed to these environmental pollutants, toxins may also be generated internally by bacteria, yeasts and parasites in your digestive system. These internally-generated toxins are then absorbed into your bloodstream, ultimately affecting your health.

Common signs and symptoms that can indicate there is a need for an Integrated Detoxification Program include the following:

  • Chronic fatigue, lethargy and/or apathy
  • Difficulty concentrating, poor memory and/or recurrent headaches
  • Muscle aching and weakness
  • Immune dysregulation – i.e., recurrent infections, autoimmune disease, allergies
  • Sensitivity to environmental chemicals, odours and/or nutritional supplements
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Depression, anxiety and/or mood swings
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Reproductive disorders
  • Atherosclerosis

Rather than allowing these toxins to continue to build up in your body I would prescribe a comprehensive three stage detoxification program using natural supplements that are specific in successfully removing toxins and restoring your health.

Stage 1: Remove – Remove dysbiotic organisms and waste from the digestive system.

Stage 2: Renew – Support renewal of gut lining, acid/alkaline balance, kidney and lymphatic activity, healthy gut flora balance and assist the clearance of toxic metals.

Stage 3: Release – Enhance the body’s waste removal systems, predominantly liver, gall bladder, kidneys and bowel.
