Detox and Wellness Program

Elimination, detoxification, cleansing and purification are all words used for the process of removing toxins from our body. We all have heard the saying “You are what you eat”. However, we need to broaden this saying to:

“You are what you eat, you are what you assimilate, you are what you eliminate"

In a perfect world, eating a perfect diet and leading a perfect lifestyle, the need for detoxification and cleansing would probably not arise. Detoxification happens naturally in healthy bodies, but it can only occur when we stop and break the cycle of re-intoxication. Eating healthier foods including lots of fresh vegetable and some fruit, using less toxic products around the house and for personal hygiene, drinking cleaner water without chemicals and exercising in fresh air, will all help. We will address all of these and more in this e book.

However, we do not live in a perfect world and as hard as we might try to live a healthy life, cleansing our body once in a while is imperative.

Our liver metabolizes and breaks down toxins, making them more water soluble for excretion. Toxins are carried by the blood stream and lymphatic system to the organs of elimination - the kidneys, the bowel, the lungs and the skin. What if the liver and the organs of elimination are over-burdened with excess toxins? Our body knows best and in its infinite wisdom will store an excess of toxins where it can do the least harm. Where do we store toxins; mostly in our fat tissue. This is the reason why we sometimes can feel unwell when we lose weight. Fat released from the fat cell carry with them the stored toxins and both are dumped into the blood stream.

Toxins stored in our body as well as the release from fat tissue can provoke symptoms like:

*      Headaches

*      Muscle aches and pain

*      Extra mucus production

*      A coated tongue

*      Flu-like symptoms

*      Irritability

*      Insomnia

*      Cravings

*      Nausea C

*      Constipation and/or diarrhea

*      Flatulence

*      Loss of energy

*      Ttiredness

Toxins are produced within our body through the process of metabolism including chemicals and hormones as well as microorganisms like viruses, bacteria, and fungus and their by-products. External toxins we receive from our environment, our diet and lifestyle.
