There is consistent evidence that our environment is increasingly becoming polluted.  These pollutants are in our food, water and air.  It is very important to regularly clean these toxins from your body before they accumulate to levels where they can cause symptoms like  weight gain, depression, constipation, fatigue etc… The fall is an ideal time to implement a detoxification program as it will help to prevent colds and flu, keep your immune system healthy, and prepare your organs for the colder months ahead.

A safe and effective detox while work to support the body’s natural cleansing organs such as the liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs and skin. The optimal functioning of these systems can be supported through proper dietary and lifestyle choices as well as through natural health products.

Important dietary choices include becoming aware of what you are eating and drinking and minimizing your daily exposure to potential toxins by choosing organic, local and/or seasonal foods.  Avoiding common food sensitivities like wheat, dairy, corn, sugar, soy, eggs and peanuts and choosing a whole food clean diet of lean protein, whole grains, good fats and an abundance of fruits and vegetables will further support the detoxification process.

Lifestyle choices that help with detoxification include regular mild to moderate exercise, avoidance of plastics, use of natural skin care and house hold products and surrounding yourself with supportive like-minded individuals.
