Why Detox?

There can be a lot of confusion and misconception surrounding detox and what actually constitutes an effective detox program.

Perhaps one of the greatest misconceptions is that detox is difficult, dangerous or even stressful.  There are many detox programs on the market today, as the detox craze seems to have become the latest health 'fad', however as can be the case with many health products, not all detox programs on the market are necessarily effective, safe and worth the money, delivering often empty promises.

The greatest challenge associated with detox seems to come from choosing the right program, as many detox products use inferior quality ingredients or encourage consumers to consume sugar syrup and water with lemon, claiming rapid weight loss and effective detoxification.  The truth is this type of approach to detox is not only just expensive sugar, but the gross restriction of calories whilst on this form of detox, actually slows the metabolic rate down so that any initial 'weight' lost (often the vast majority of weight loss on these types of programs is fluid) is put back on after normal eating is resumed.

The second issue with liquid only style detox diets is that aside from being very impractical and difficult to sustain, they do nothing to educate you on how to adopt long term healthy eating, which is why so many people who try liquid only detox diets, rebound badly into bad eating habits from over powering hunger pangs and cravings due to not eating enough healthy food during the detox period.

The most important thing to understand is that detox is all about adopting a healthy eating program and professionally supported supplement regime for a designated period of time, to aid the effective elimination of toxins from our body, namely the liver and bowel. It's that simple and there is nothing dangerous about healthy eating to support optimal liver and bowel function! 

Why the need to detox?

As a consequence of living in the modern world with environmental pollutants, eating too many processed, nutrient deficient foods, daily consumption of coffee, drinking too much alcohol, smoking and generally being exposed to too many chemicals and toxins in every day products and medications, the human body is constantly being exposed to excessive levels of toxins & the harmful effects these have on our health over time. By taking the time to detox 1 -2 x's per year, you will assist your body to safely and effectively eliminate  accumulated toxins and relieve your liver and digestive system. 

The liver performs one of the most vital roles in the body, being responsible for the elimination of toxic substances from our body.  The final journey for excess toxins and waste is via the kidney and bowels, eliminating toxins in the form of human waste.
If any or all of these organs fail to function at an optimal level, excess waste and toxins can build up in our system, producing many of the day to day ailments that so many of us suffer.
