Tell Me About Your Toxins…

What is a Toxin?

A toxin is anything that negatively alters the way your body functions. Common toxins may include:

  • Environmental: pollution, car fumes, cigarette smoke
  • Food: preservatives, additives, alcohol, junk foods, refined foods, sugar, pesticides and herbicides sprayed onto non-organic fruit and vegetables
  • Heavy metals: lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, aluminum
  • Endogenous (made in the body): excess hormones (i.e. stress, PMS), 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, and the toxins become deposited in body tissues and organs. This may lead to chronic disease.

Am I Toxic?

Symptoms of toxicity may include but are not limited to:

  • Headaches
  • fatigue, lethargy
  • poor short term memory
  • difficulty concentrating
  • allergies or sensitivities
  • acne, psoriasis, rosacea, eczema
  • bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, other digestive problems
  • muscle and joint aches and pains
  • depression, anxiety, mood swings

What are your Toxins?

Do you feel negative, bad and stressed a lot of the time? Are you or have you been a hairdresser, nail technician, farmer, mechanic or worked in a plastics factory? Do you eat foods high in sugar and fat that are processed so they no longer resemble their original state? Maybe it’s time to take action and detoxify your body, mind and environment for a rejuvenated, energized and healthy life.

How do I Detox?

Choose organic fruit and vegetables; eliminate processed foods and sugars from your diet, drink 1 to 2 litres of purified water daily and exercise! If you make these changes, you are off to great start. For professional and experienced help with detoxification, a naturopath may use the scientific tool ‘Bioimpedance Analysis’ (BIA) to see how your body is coping with your toxins. Iridology (iris analysis) can be performed to check for possible toxins within the body and organs. A professional detox program should take into account a whole host of body functions, including supporting the body to enhance elimination of toxins, and may lead to a resolution of symptoms, clear skin, regular bowels, enhanced energy and much more. A professional detoxification program is clear, makes sense, and is easy and effective.
