Toxins: what’s the big deal?

Every day we are surrounded by toxins from our environment and our own body generates toxins internally.

Environmental toxins include:

  • Food additives
  • Plastic
  • Pesticides
  • Mould
  • Asbestos
  • Chlorine
  • Heavy metals like lead, mercury and aluminum.

These are found in everyday items such as our food, household cleaners, drinking water, fish, air, cosmetics, bug sprays, and air fresheners. The negative effects can range from cancer, skin rashes, and allergies to birth defects, miscarriage and blocked absorption of nutrients.

Our own body toxins include:

  • Bad bacteria
  • Yeasts
  • Parasites

These toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream which can affect your health and vitality.

Safety Precautions

Pregnancy: Detoxification should not be attempted during pregnancy. But is ideal as a preconception program. If you fall pregnant while doing a detox you should stop the program and contact our Nutritionist.

Medication: Detoxification can change the way some medicines work. Let our Nutritionist know if you are taking any prescription medications.

Side-effects: Some people may occasionally experience symptoms such as nausea, changes in bowel function or headaches. Generally these are short-term and will pass. Discuss them with our Nutritionist if they are severe or last for more than a few days.
