Why do I need to detox?
These days it’s less common for health issues to arise from exposure to a single toxin (such as mercury or lead, although I still see this in some patients). Rather, health issues can arise as a result of the cumulative effects of low level exposure to a broad range of environmental, lifestyle and dietary chemicals and toxins. In the 21st century our bodies are being exposed to an unprecedented amount of chemicals that our livers, kidneys, skin, and digestive systems have never before encountered. It has been said that a persons’ ability to detoxify is a major determinant of their level of health. Detoxification of substances is a continual, daily process in the body. Our cells ‘poop’ out their own waste each day. True story! All 100 trillion of them. Like putting out the trash. Pollution, pesticides, herbicides, food additives, cleaning products, personal care products, alcohol and prescription drugs all require processing and then removal from the body. Giving your cells a helping hand makes sense does’t it?!
What’s the difference between this detoxification programme and juice fasting?
Certain things are required to enable your body to detoxify optimally. Amino acids, which come from protein, bind to toxic molecules assisting them to be eliminated from the body. Without these amino acids your body can’t effectively detoxify. My programmes are carefully designed to provide the right amount of amino acids required. We’ve also ensured adequate amino acids to prevent any muscle loss which is a common effect of some juice fasts.
Why do I need a skype consultation?
I like meet with you during your programme so you to have the best, most therapeutic experience. You can ask any questions have and workshop any problems you’ve encountered. The nutritional and herbal medicines in your programme are higher quality and more potent than those available over the counter. Making sure they’re right for you is important. If the programme needs tweaking we can do that too.
What if I don’t have skype?
No problem. We also use FaceTime on any iphone/ipad/computer or alternatively we can have a phone consult.
When is the best time to do a detox?
The best time is when you have a fairly clear week/s in your diary. The week of your 21st birthday? Not the nest time! Ditto the week your in-laws are coming to stay! Best to choose a time you can commit a bit of extra time to shopping and preparing your meal plan.
Can I do these programmes if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
Pregnancy is not the time to do a detox. If you fall pregnant while detoxing just give us a call. If you’re planning to conceive soon, a detox programme is a great idea for both partners.
