What Is Detoxification?

‘Detox’ and ‘cleansing’ are synonymous terms. They are a natural means of assisting the body to eliminate accumulated waste and internal toxins.

Why Would I do a Cleansing Program?

There are literally thousands of chemicals and pollutants that we are exposed to everyday. Our bodies are constantly trying to cope with and filter out these damaging substances. Over time, these substances accumulate in our internal organs and in the long term lead to a variety of diseases. By periodically doing a cleansing program, one can clean out the body and alleviate the pressure put on the organs such as our liver, kidneys, intestines, and lymphatic system. It is recommended to do a cleanse twice a year to optimize your health, reduce unwanted symptoms, and to prevent future disease.

What Results Can I Expect?

Depending on how ‘toxic’ or unhealthy a person is, results can vary. Typically, individuals have an improvement in their digestion and bowel movements, increased energy, increased mental clarity or lifting of mental ‘fog’, weight loss, and decreased pain. Doing a cleanse is a great way to kick off a weight-loss program.
