Cleansing and Detoxification Programs
Cleansing and detoxification is a crucial part of restoring and maintaining one's optimal health. The cumulative effects of toxins, pollutions, nutrient depleted foods, xenoestrogens, added preservatives and artificial agents in our foods, pesticides, and environmental chemicals can all take a toll on our health, impair organ function and place a toxic burden on our cells. It is nearly impossible not to come in contact with these toxins in our daily lives. Periodic (seasonal) cleansing support of our internal organs of elimination can help ensure our continued experience of peak health.

Some people notice increased sensitivities to chemical agents and develop seasonal allergies or food sensitivities as adults, even though they were healthy in younger years. These small inconveniences can gradually worsen, creating more stress on our body and impacting general immune system function.

Sources of toxins include: pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, medications, additives, food allergens, heavy metals, toxic cleaning agents, fungal overgrowth, parasite infection, bacteria and viruses...all of which can damage cells and tissues, produce toxic by-products which can overload the bloodstream and affect the livers detoxification ability. Our bodies' natural chemical reactions also naturally create waste in the body which needs to be eliminated.

Toxic build-up can burden our immune system and organs of elimination, interfere with normal cellular function, compromise the bodies ability to be self regulating and impair homeostatic balance, left unaddressed, can result in a change in cellular function, general fatigue and a sense of sluggishness and depletion or more severe illness.

The severity in illness can be determined by the duration and intensity of toxic load in relation to the bodies' ability to remove waste material.

Our bodies eliminate toxins from the skin (the largest organ of elimination), colon, lungs, liver, kidneys, lymph and bloodstream. Cleansing can help to eliminate these toxins more efficiently from the body.

Treatment is always addressed individually as each person is unique. Individual cleansing and detoxification programs depends upon the specific needs of each unique client, their past medical history and current presenting symptoms.

Some therapies that can be included in detoxification and cleansing programs:

  • Herbal medicine 
  • Far infrared sauna 
  • Food allergy testing 
  • Complete gastrointestinal health panel 
  • Dietary supplementation 
  • Nutritional changes 
  • Dry skin brushing
