A natural detox remedy should be a normal part of everyone's routine, a few times each year. Over the years I have done different natural detox remedies and recommended many to my clients with great success.
Many of these common illnesses stem from exposure to toxic chemicals and can be helped immensely by a natural detox remedy.
and so many more.
Why do an all natural detox?
Environmental pollution is one of the main causes of health issues.
We are bombarded by toxins every day. We must detox to maintain optimal health and this is one of the best ways to prevent cancer.
Pesticides and herbicides
Chemical additives and preservatives
Chemical processing - to whiten foods etc.
Cooking methods- heating, refining, etc.
2. Pollution in our homes
Anti-inflammatory fabrics, carpets etc.
Paints, construction materials, etc.
3. Air pollution
4. Water pollution
Tap water contains:
1. Pure water , and plenty of it, every day.
2. Fiber naturally absorbs all the toxins from the colon and the bile from the gall bladder, reduces transit time in the intestine, and helps improve a healthy intestinal flora.
3. Digestive enzymes help decompose particles in the intestine that are not fully digested, help us better assimilate nutrients, and reduce the amount of accumulated toxins.
4. Natural herbs and products that cleanse and elminate toxins help the liver, kidneys and lymph.
There are so many products out there, where does one start?
The main thing to know is that we never do a detox when the body is in a weakened state. As a Naturopath, the first step with my clients is to work on what is ailing them. First they begin to nourish the body, boosting themselves up. When they are feeling fine and are strong then they can do a detox.
It is also important to note that some detoxes can cause nausea, headaches and other symptoms. This is part of a natural "healing crisis." This is why it is better to work with a certified Naturoapth. if this occurs you can reduce the amount you are taking and continue.
It's important to be in tune with your body. If you have a real craving for sweets and it is hard for you to go a long time without eating, I would not recommend a juice fast or any kind of fast.
I have a few products that I use and highly recommend, that are top of the line and reasonably priced. Depending on my clients metabolic-energy type I recommend the best product to suit their personal needs.
