Does this sound like you?

Spring is a great time for a good clean up, not only of your
house and garage, but also your own body. With the season
changing and the end of the year fast approaching, take this
time to think about how you are feeling.
• Do you feel less healthy and energetic than other people your age?
• Do you often have difficulty thinking clearly?
• Do you get sick often?
• Do you often feel tired, sluggish and flat?
• Do you have digestive disturbances (wind, bloating, flatulence, constipation, heartburn)?
• Do you have bad breath or body odour?
• Do you eat junk food, drink alcohol or make poor lifestyle decisions?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may be
in need of a ‘spring clean’. These are the types of symptoms
you may experience when many of the toxic substances you
have been exposed to have accumulated within your body,
leaving you feeling less than your best. Our Practitioner can
recommend a safe and effective professional detoxification
program to improve the way in which your body eliminates
toxins and to bring you back to a state of health and vitality.

Toxic Exposure – A Reality of Modern Life

Toxin exposure is seemingly unavoidable in our modern
world. Every day we are exposed to toxins like heavy metals,
pesticides, chemicals, food additives and pollutants, which are
present in the air, water and food that we consume. Toxins do
not only come from our external environment; toxins can also
be generated internally by ‘unfriendly’ bacteria, yeasts, and
parasites in our digestive systems.
Your body has numerous mechanisms to help eliminate all
these toxins, but these detoxification pathways can become
overwhelmed if you produce, consume or absorb more
toxins than you can easily clear. A professional detoxification
program supports toxin clearance through these pathways,
leaving you feeling healthy and energetic.

Spring Clean with a Safe and Effective Detoxification Program

Detoxifying is serious business and your safety and comfort
during detoxification is important to us. Undergoing the wrong
type of detox for your individual needs may actually leave you
feeling sick and tired. You should not attempt a detoxification
program without the guidance and support of a trained
healthcare Practitioner.
The natural supplements used in this program support your
body by allowing your natural detoxification and repair systems
to function efficiently, without causing undesirable side effects.

Live the Detox Lifestyle

To make the most of a detoxification program, specific lifestyle
modifications can also be helpful:
1. Exercise: Our bodies are designed for regular physical
activity. Regular exercise supports detoxification by allowing
the lymphatic system to carry toxins and wastes out of the
body. You should aim for 30 to 40 minutes of moderate
intensity aerobic exercise, three to four times per week.
2. Avoid recreational drugs: Recreational drugs (including
cigarettes and alcohol) interfere with your detoxification
processes and should be avoided to ensure you get the
most out of your detoxification program.
3. Drink pure water: One of the easiest ways to improve
your detoxification capacity is to drink plenty of water.
Ideally the water should be filtered and you should aim to
drink at least 2 litres of water per day, or more if it is hot
or when you are exercising.
4. Detoxify your environment: Your home and work can
be major sources of toxins. Try to eliminate or minimise
your use of chemical cleaning products (vinegar, bicarb
and other natural products are suitable alternatives),
antiperspirants with aluminum, pesticides, petrochemicals,
paints, solvents and hair spray.
5. Avoid toxic emotions and stress: How you think and
feel can profoundly influence your health. Choose to be
positive, optimistic and focused on improving your health.
If you have a major stress in your life, enlisting the support
of others to help can be useful. If you have lots of little
stressors, practicing a relaxation technique like yoga, tai
chi or meditation may be helpful.
6. Dry skin brushing: Your skin is a major organ of
elimination. Dead skin cells can accumulate and prevent
the skin being able to remove toxins effectively. Before you
shower, spend five to ten minutes with a firm bristled brush
or loofah brushing the skin of the arms, legs, and back
briskly in the direction of the heart.
7. Spa treatments and massage: Many health spas offer
treatments such as saunas, hydrotherapy baths, marine
algae wraps, skin exfoliation, and mud treatments.
Massage techniques may accelerate detoxification,
particularly lymphatic drainage. These treatments have
a long traditional use for detoxification and will certainly
leave you feeling relaxed and stress free.
