Why use a detox protocol?
Toxic substances are in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink; these substances were not here a hundred years ago. Aside from these, our bodies regularly produce toxins as a part of our metabolic processes. With a detox plan, you will be taking a load off the organs that detoxify your body, namely your liver, kidneys and bowel and will support and improve their performance. You will revitalize your self-healing capacity, improve your energy, improve digestion and ultimately improve your well-being. We will be adding in supporting supplements that help your liver function better.
Who would benefit from a detox plan:
If you have a family history of liver problems, have issues with your digestion (frequent constipation or diarrhea), suffer from skin issues (such as acne, eczema or other allergies that you haven’t had before), or are suffering from fatigue, headache, brain-fog and confusion- then a detox plan might help you.
What to expect:
We will be removing irritant foods (these might include things like milk, sugar, grain, alcohol or other things depending on your specific case) and adding foods that will be helping with detoxification. Research suggests that cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale) may further support detoxification pathways. Because your liver is the main organ responsible for detoxification in your body, we will be emphasizing liver support. Compounds such as curcumin help reduce inflammation in your body and herbs such as milk thistle and dandelion protect the liver from oxidative stress. We will not only be detoxifying your body but also your mind, with a few exercises during this procedure.
