We are a very toxic society today, and we are also very deficient in the correct nutrients, causing a breakdown of the body systems. This breakdown is the result of the accumulation of certain toxins in the body and is a major cause of disease.
What is Detoxification?
Detoxification and getting rid of these toxins is a major focus of my Nutritional Balancing Program. Some of the protocols I recommend are near infrared sauna, coffee enemas, and cleaning up our environment to help expedite the healing process.
Detoxification is the removal of waste matter or toxins from the body. It is one of the most critical of the body’s natural functions, and it goes on 24 hours a day. If the rate of “toxification” exceeds your rate of “detoxification,” there is a problem. Detoxification is crucial for anyone who wishes to restore and maintain health.
Symptoms of Toxin Overload
When you’re detoxing, what you’re doing is releasing the toxins that are stored in your body so that you can excrete them. All those loose toxins flying around in your system can cause a number of strange side effects before they make their way out, including:
- Aches and pains
- Gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea and constipation
- Strong emotions, including anger and sadness
- And more
Learning effective detox techniques is really important to your overall health. In my practice, I work with clients on removing toxins from their bodies and on ways to remove as many as possible in their everyday lives. Changing some of your everyday home products can have a big effect.
Who Needs Detoxification?
No matter how healthy you eat or how well you take care of yourself, you cannot achieve true health unless you purge heavy metals and environmental chemicals from your body. You need to have daily approaches to helping your body detoxify in the toxic environment we live in today. Your body is capable of handling some toxicity, but it is simply not designed to handle the extraordinary toxic burden we face today.
In our modern world, no one is exempt from toxicity. Everyone is exposed to the contamination of our air, water, and food from industrialization, pesticides, and the hundred thousand toxic chemicals and dozens of toxic heavy metals that infest our environment. No one can escape the plague our industrialized world has wrought on our health. Even if you feel fine today, one day you inevitably will succumb to health issues caused by heavy metal and chemical accumulation.
I believe that detoxification is one of the most important things you need to do to be healthy and avoid disease. A consistent detoxification plan must be implemented for your entire life because we are constantly exposed to chemicals that bio-accumulate in our bodies.
