It used to be said are we toxic now it is
HOW toxic are we?
One of the single most effective tools in my practice for good health is the 7-day detox. Toxicity can lead to a variety of physical and mental symptoms. I have had patients with a multitude of chronic symptoms that clears after 7 days of detox. Just on Monday, I had a patient that had a rash on his arm for 3 years. He has tried many different treatments to get rid of this with no success. After only 5 days of detox, the rash disappeared. I have many patients who’s a mental state also improved including low mood. A detox “clears” the symptom picture – this means sometimes the symptoms are not actual symptoms but rather toxins that is creating the symptoms.
If you have a chronic condition or have not detoxed in the last 6 months feel free to complete the questionnaire that you can request below to get a score on your toxicity level.
1. Remove toxins from the body.
Long-term exposure to toxins (environmental pollutants, cancer-causing chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial waste) affects our metabolism, behavior, immune system, and leads to disease. They are stored in tissues and cells throughout the body, including the brain, often for years – yikes!
2. Prevent chronic disease.
Environmental toxins are responsible for many cancers, neurological diseases, heart disease, strokes… you name it. Our bodies do have a built-in detox function to deal with these dangers, but those systems are constantly overloaded! Detoxing assists and improves what our bodies are trying to do naturally.
3. Enhance the immune system function.
A compromised immune system makes us vulnerable to colds and touches of flu, affecting our quality of life and productivity. Regular detoxing helps strengthen immune system functioning and fights off infection.
4. Lose weight.
Toxins affect the body’s natural ability to burn fat, leading to weight gain. Diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure are directly linked to weight issues. Detoxing rids the body of toxins stored in fat cells and increases metabolism.
5. Slow premature aging.
Detoxing rids the body of free radicals and heavy metals partially responsible for aging. Detoxing helps to increase nutrient absorption, including antioxidants and vitamins that help fight oxidative stress. It prevents “rust” in the body.
6. Improve the quality of life.
Simply put, our bodies don’t function very well when they’re loaded with toxins. We may have joint pain, headaches, digestive disorders, sleep problems, and lack of energy. Depression may be eased and memory may be improved as a result of detoxification!
7. Increase energy.
You will have more mental, physical, and emotional energy after detoxing. People tend to sleep better and need less of it.
8. Improve skin quality.
Diet and environmental toxins undeniably affect the skin. Detoxing improves acne, and strengthens hair and nails, and gives us a natural, healthy glow.
9. Mental and emotional clarity.
When the body’s systems are aligned, a shift also occurs with our mental and emotional states. We can deal with more when we’re clear and grounded. We can make better decisions, analyze accurately, and see things differently.
10. Restore balance to our body’s systems.
Our digestive, nervous, and hormonal systems were designed to work together to achieve optimum health. This is what our bodies want to do! When we overload them with toxins and unhealthy foods, these systems don’t work as well as they should and we get sick.
Detoxing brings balance back and helps our systems function properly again.
