Detox Tips


Why detox? The primary goal of a detox is to reduce our exposure to known toxins such as excessive alcohol, sugars and cigarettes, to increase excretory functions and improve the liver's ability to metabolise toxins.

SIGNS OF TOXICITY:

  • Recurrent headaches
  • Muscle aching and weakness
  • Recurrent infections
  • Poor short term memory and concentration
  • Nausea
  • Chronic fatigue and lethargy
  • Adverse reactions to chemicals, odours and certain foods

TIPS FOR DETOXING:

  1. Reduce your intake of animal foods, caffeine, sugar, refined and processed foods
  2. Increase your intake of special foods to help protect your liver and improve its function, for example garlic, onions, legumes, cabbage, broccoli, artichokes and lemons
  3. Take a high potency multi-vitamin, mineral and antioxidant supplement. Antioxidants are important for supporting detoxification mechanisms and protecting your liver. B vitamins, calcium and trace minerals are critical in the elimination of heavy metals and other toxic compounds from the body
  4. Take St. Mary's Thistle (Silybum marianum) - this herb protects the liver, regenerates liver cells and enhances detoxification processes
  5. Adopt a healthy lifestyle - include regular exercise, drink clean filtered water, minimise environmental chemicals such as cleaning products, pesticides, hair sprays and pollution from cars
  6. Enjoy a spa treatment - saunas, hydrotherapy, skin exfoliation and lymphatic drainage massage have been used traditionally for years to detoxify your skin and lymphatic system and leave you feeling relaxed and stress free

CAUTIONS:

Rule number one is to never detox if you are suffering from constipation. Your bowels must be functioning soundly before you start the elimination process. Avoid detox programs when you are pregnant, breastfeeding or suffering from an acute illness. Consult you healthcare practitioner for more advice or if you are taking prescription medication.

DETOX PROGRAMS:

If you are serious about going on a detox, come and speak to our expert staff. There are so many fantastic programs and supplements out there to assist you on the road to better health and wellbeing. So do your liver a favour and detox!

Healthy Heart

fernCardiovascular disease is one of the most common causes of death in Australia. It is also one of the most preventable diseases. Atherosclerosis (the leading cause of heart disease) occurs when fatty deposits called plaque form on the artery walls.

The plaque hardens and blocks blood vessels eventually leading to a heart attack or stroke. Cholesterol is one of the main contributors to plaque formation.

Here are some handy hints to promote a healthy heart:

Tips to promote a healthy heart:

Remember, it is always better to get to the cause of your health problems rather than just treating the symptoms of health problems.
