We offer many detox programs at the clinic, depending on your practioner's assessment of you and your health goals. From short 2 week Express Detoxes, to longer more targeted detoxes for liver, digestion and skin issues.
Toxins are very common in our busy, modern world. They can be Environmental toxins such as heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals, pollutants, food additives and drugs. These are present in the food and water that we consume and the air we breathe. However, toxins can also be generated internally within our digestive system, stemming from ‘bad’ bacteria, yeasts and parasites. These internal toxins create a negative effect on our health, vitality and energy levels.
A Natural Detoxification program can be a particularly effective protocol to improving the state of your health rapidly as it may help clear toxins and restore your body to an energetic and abundant state of wellbeing.
Your Practitioner can help recommend a safe, gentle detox program that may help clear your body of accumulated toxins. The natural supplements used in this program support your body and help it detoxify, allowing your body's detoxification and repair systems to function efficiently, without causing any undesirable side-effects
- Removing toxin exposure through dietary and lifestyle changes;
- Removing bad bacteria and waste from your digestive system;
- Renewing your digestive lining and the healthy bacteria to improve your digestive function; and
- Releasing your body's toxins so they can be eliminated.
A Comprehensive Detoxification Program is the most effective way of giving your body a thorough 'spring clean' and get you feeling fantastic again!
There are considerations however, as Detox programs are not suitable at certain times. Discuss this with your practitioner in order to choose the best program for your individual circumstances.
Safety precautions include:
Pregnancy: Detoxification should not be attempted during pregnancy; however, it is ideal as a preconception program. If you fall pregnant while doing a detox you should stop the program and contact your Practitioner.
Medication: Detoxification has the potential to change the way some medicines work. If you are taking prescription medications then discuss this with your Practitioner.
Side-effects: Occasionally people may experience adverse symptoms during detoxification such as nausea, changes in bowel function or headaches. Generally these are short-term and will resolve without any intervention; however, you should discuss them with your Practitioner if they are severe or last for more than a few days.
