Detoxification programs aim to support your body's 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 function 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 may lead to chronic diseases.
Symptoms of toxicity may include:
bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, other digestive problems
muscle aches and pains
poor short term memory
allergies or sensitivities
depression, anxiety, mood swings
Naturopathic support for detoxification is comprehensive and wholistic. The detox program includes toxicity and nutritional assessments, dietary and lifestyle guidance to minimise toxin ingestion and exposure, and nutritional and herbal detoxification support. The Comprehensive Detoxification program runs for 4 weeks and is personalised to suit you. Duration can be shorter or longer depending on the individual.
