What’s the Big Deal About Detoxification?
Detoxification is your body’s natural process of changing dietary and environmental toxins into less harmful substances before eliminating them from your body. Supporting natural detoxification processes can help improve digestive function and may facilitate healthy weight loss, however the benefits do not stop there as healthy detoxification pathways may also lead to a reduction in other seemingly unrelated symptoms, such as sore joints or painful periods. Even if you’re fit and well, for many people a regular detox leaves them feeling more energised whilst reducing the toxin load.
Detox Diet and Lifestyle Support
Modern diets can be a major source of ongoing toxin exposure due to the intake of caffeine, alcohol and refined processed foods, which typically contain artificial additives, preservatives and toxic fats. Not only do these add to your toxin burden but put unnecessary pressure on your organs of detoxification. By minimising certain foods, whilst increasing your intake of plant-based wholefoods, you can enhance the effects of the herbal and nutritional formulas and boost your detox capacity.
Toxins may also be found in household chemicals, personal care products, and in some foods (e.g. food may be exposed to pesticide residues or toxic metal contaminants). Your body is designed to remove these toxins via the ‘channels of elimination’, i.e. your liver, kidneys, bowels and skin; however it is possible for these channels to become overwhelmed, depending upon your level of exposure, and this may reduce your overall health and wellbeing.
Why Choose a Practitioner Only Detox Program?
A personalised program based on your specific health history, together with the added benefit of professional support and advice from Linda Cotone can have a much greater impact on your detox capacity – helping to promote long-term wellbeing beyond the duration of the program. The Practitioner Only Detox Program incorporates herbal and nutritional formulas, based on scientific research, to lay the foundation for effective detoxification. These formulas focus on supporting the three main channels of elimination: the liver, kidneys and optimal digestion.
