Why Should You Detox?

Why Should You Detox?  There are many notions of what detox really means. We will not be discussing the process of helping people with drug or alcohol addiction.  Instead, let’s briefly review the physiology of detoxification in the body and how you can help this process to feel your best. 

When examining why you should participate in a detox program we must first look at digestion, the importance of the bacteria in your intestines and how the liver works. Blood flows from the intestines to the liver carrying nutrients, byproducts of digestion, any medications and other toxic substances that may be present.  Substances that are potentially harmful to the body are then altered and processed in a very sophisticated detoxification pathway and passed back in to the blood for elimination after they’ve been rendered less harmful.  An example of this process is how your liver removes alcohol, a toxic substance, from your blood, and the symptoms you may feel when you have over-indulged.  Healthy bacteria play an important role in the digestion and absorption of food.  Conversely, unhealthy bacteria when present can impair digestion and absorption, leading to gas, bloating and generally feeling poorly.  They can also create toxins themselves.

Our 6 day detoxification program is a prime opportunity to promote re-colonization of the healthy bacteria in your intestines by eating good food, taking high quality, and well researched probiotics-the bacteria themselves-by promoting healthy bowel elimination and taking strategic nutrients to support the liver with its work.  The evidence that we may be over burdening our liver is compelling.  Each and every day we are exposed to multiple toxic substances in the form of environmental pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, PCBs, parabens, BPA, heavy metals and food additives along with medications and alcohol. These burdens on your liver may cause symptoms such as low energy, un-refreshing sleep, joint discomfort, increased body fat, fluid retention, problems with focus and memory and an unhealthy appearance of the skin.  Listen to your body when it speaks to you in the form of these symptoms, even if you don’t think they are severe enough to see your doctor.  You can healthfully address them by completing a safe and effective detox program to support your body’s detox system that will help you feel your best.
