Detox


Detox means to support your organs of elimination to remove toxins from your body whilst decreasing toxin exposure and ingestion. A toxin is anything that can disrupt cell function. Toxins can include, but are not limited to:

  • Environmental: pollution, car fumes, cigarette smoke
  • Food: preservatives, additives, pesticides and herbicides sprayed onto non-organic fruit and vegetables
  • Heavy metals: lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, aluminium
  • Endogenous (made in the body): excess hormones, metabolic wastes

The accumulation of toxins in your body can cause disruption in the functioning of your immune system, hormonal balance and nervous system. This may manifest as autoimmune disease, premenstrual syndrome, pain syndromes, and more. If your body becomes overloaded with toxins, it may not be able to efficiently excrete them all, and they become deposited in body tissues and organs. This can lead to chronic diseases.

Symptoms of toxicity may include:

  • fatigue, lethargy
  • bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, other digestive problems
  • headaches
  • muscle aches and pains
  • poor short term memory
  • decreased concentration
  • allergies or sensitivities
  • depression, anxiety, mood swings

Natural Help for detoxification is comprehensive and wholistic. The detox program includes toxicity and nutritional assessments, dietary and lifestyle guidance to minimise toxin ingestion, and nutritional, herbal and homoeopathic detoxification support.
