Detoxification allows you to reconnect with your pure essential self. If done correctly and holistically, it can provide a fresh start for the body, mind and soul.
When the body has been overburdened with exogenous (external) and endogenous (internal) toxic substances for a prolonged period, it loses its capacity to detoxify at the same rate that toxins are absorbed.
This is when we begin to manifest symptoms of toxic overload and organ weakening. It is thought by many natural health professionals that this prolonged state of toxicity undermines organ and cellular function and is the underlying cause of many chronic diseases.
Firstly, let’s look at where toxins come from:
- Chemicals found in our food, water and air in the form of fertilisers, pesticides, heavy metals and other pollutants.
- Air-controlled environments – airborne microorganisms and debris.
- Unwanted pollutants found in everything from plastic containers to dry-cleaned clothes, skin and hair care products, cosmetics and so on.
- Our bodies produce unwanted substances as the normal by-product of our digestion and metabolism. We can accumulate waste products of any infectious microorganisms living in our bodies.
“Detoxification” refers to the body’s ability to neutralise and safely eliminate harmful chemicals and unwanted substances from the body to address and correct toxic imbalances.
Detoxing impacts almost all systems of the body from cardiovascular, nervous, immune, respiratory, reproductive, gastrointestinal, urinary, skin, musculoskeletal and endocrine.
Some of the benefits of detox include:
- Improvement of your energy levels
- Increased metabolism
- Enhanced weight loss
- Restoration of your digestive system
- Cleansing your liver and colon
- Balancing of hormones
- Immunity boosting
For effective detoxification, it is essential to provide the body with the necessary dietary substances so that the body can perform this important and natural function. If the body has the proper nutrition to support healthy biochemistry during detoxification, our body is able to eliminate these unwanted substances safely and efficiently through cellular processes via the main organs of detoxification, skin, bowels, liver, kidneys and lungs.

You can discover the fundamentals of detoxification with the Intro to Detox program recommended for first-time detoxers or as a seasonal reboot.

Since time began, people have been looking for the secret to living a long and healthy life. Only a few generations ago, the thought of living to the age of 90 was an aspiration.
The warning signs that you’re suffering stress and burnout can start with the feeling that every day is a bad day; when caring about your work or home life seems to be a total waste of energy.
