Why do you need to start a detox plan?
Over the last century, the world has changed significantly where more than 80,0000 man-made chemicals are released into the environment every year. This results in a detrimental effect on our health and even our offspring. For instance, 1 in every 6 children has a neuropsychological disorder, whereas autism which is associated with exposure to toxins affects 1 in 100 people.
Though we can’t avoid toxins completely, our bodies are built with strong innate antioxidant protection mechanisms and a detoxification system that can help us to flush out toxins and assist in cell repair and renewal. This can be synergized if we complement a healthy lifestyle along with a personalised detox programme.
Does it really work?
There are thousands of detox programmes readily available on the internet, with many being endorsed by celebrities or even doctors. Though many of the programmes may provide some initial benefits, they can lead to nutrient deficiency and severe health problems in the long run. For instance, the Master Cleanse programme entails you abstaining from all food for 14 days and only consuming 6-12 glasses of a mixture of water, lemon, cayenne pepper and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. Such a Detox Programme is fundamentally wrong as it does not include the basic nutrients which we require and the sugar content which you will be consuming from the Master Cleanse programme would give you 12 times the limit of the amount of sugar recommended by the World Health Organisation.
Why should you choose our Detox Programme?
Our Detox Specialist graduated from the Health Science Academy and the Institute of Integrative Nutrition with a specialisation in Clinical Detoxification and Nutritional Therapy. Rather than using the typical ‘one-size fits all’ detox programme, our programme is curated based on the foundation of clinical science and is personalised to fit your unique needs.
We help you understand how the body does its own detoxification which would enable you to understand how to boost your detox capacity and feel better faster.
The programme is gradual, you choose the pace and intensity of your detox journey.
Who needs to do a Detox?
Our specialised programme focuses on Clean Eating and realistic lifestyle changes, customised based on their preferences, dislikes, work schedule, home and culture and is suitable for everyone who wants to improve their quality of life. Even if you are struggling with a chronic disease, we will work within the parameters of your doctor’s medical advice and instructions to maximise your benefits from our Detox Programme.
What will you benefit from this Detox Programme?
1. Better Weight Management
Science newly discovered a surprising and concerning link between environmental toxins and weight gain due to the adverse effects of toxins on hormones and blood sugar balance. Toxins have a profound impact on the endocrine system. The endocrine system is your hormone system. When the endocrine system is out of whack, your thyroid, adrenals, pancreas, and hormones are disrupted, leading to a slow metabolism.
2. Improved Hormone Balance
We are exposed every day to hundreds of chemicals that interfere with our endocrine system by mimicking, decreasing, or increasing our hormone levels. Toxins have been linked to many reproductive health concerns such as PCOS, estrogen dominance, infertility, low sex drive and endometriosis.
3. Healthier Digestion
A healthy gut is one of the keys to true wellness. Toxins in the gut disrupt the gut’s ecosystem, leading to malabsorption, inflammation, gut permeability, improper digestion, and an overtaxed liver. Some microbiome disruption signs include digestive issues like bloating or gas, headaches, general fatigue, mood swings, suppressed immunity, skin problems like eczema, food allergies, and autoimmune disorders.
4. Better Focus
Do you struggle with brain fog? Brain fog is a sign the gut microbiome is out of balance. Toxins such as pesticides in our food and chemicals in our drinking water can disrupt the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut leading to dysbiosis, candida and SIBO .
5. More Energy
Feeling tired and rundown a lot may be a sign you need a liver detox. A liver overtaxed with toxins is a common reason for low energy. And keep in mind, toxins are not just external; internal toxins such as stress, worry, and negative emotions are also energy draining.
6. Less Aches and Pains
When toxins and harmful compounds accumulate in the body, they cause inflammation. Inflammation is the root cause of many modern health conditions today. One common sign of inflammation is unexplained body aches and pains, especially joint, back and upper neck and shoulder pain.
7. Healthier Moods
Increased stress and mood swings are potential signs of a liver overburdened with toxins, both external and internal. Toxins affect neurotransmitters and essential brain chemicals such as GABA and serotonin, resulting in feelings of stress and even unhappiness.
8. Better Sleep
At times, sleep issues (such as inability to fall or stay asleep) originate from toxins. Although the body’s detoxification system continuously works to remove toxins, it sometimes needs additional support. You can provide this extra detox support to your body through your diet and an increased water intake.
9. Skin Problems
The overload of toxins accumulated in the liver can result in negative and apparent skin issues. Unexplainable inflammation, dryness, and breakouts are potential warning signs that the liver needs some TLC.
