What is toxicity?
Have you ever taken the time to assess the amount of chemicals and toxins that you are exposed to on a daily basis?
In today’s modern world we are increasingly exposed to thousands of different toxins and chemicals every day, many you are not even aware of. Industrial pollutants, petrochemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, food additives, pharmaceuticals, cleaning products, hygiene products, cosmetics, plastics, and the list goes on. Toxins do not only come from our external environment, but can also be generated internally by “bad” bacteria, yeasts and parasites in your digestive system. These internally generated toxins are then absorbed into your blood stream, effecting your health and vitality.
Your body has mechanisms for eliminating all these toxins, but these detoxification pathways can become overwhelmed if you produce, consume, or absorb more toxins than you can effectively get rid of. To avoid this you need to reduce your exposure to toxins and optimize your ability to eliminate them on a day-to-day basis. If you are not feeling as you would like then a detoxification program specifically designed for you may help.
How can we measure toxicity?
It is important to clearly establish your levels of toxicity before we begin. This clinic uses a range of tests and screenings to ensure we know what type of detoxification program is best suited for your particular needs. We also monitor your progress throughout your program to ensure your body is effectively reducing your toxic load so you can ultimately achieve your health goals.

What’s Really Going On?
It all begins in the gut. We have always known that a healthy digestive system is a good indicator of overall health status. This means that if your digestive system is struggling then so is your health. A successful detox program will always begin with the digestive system by focusing on repair and improving function. A good analogy is – if you don’t repair the gut first it is like replacing the oil in your car but not changing the filter.
Most people with toxicity develop a problem called ‘Leaky Gut Syndrome” also known as increased intestinal permeability. In a healthy digestive system, the lining of the gut is very good at allowing beneficial nutrient s to pass into the blood stream, whilst keeping toxic products from digestion within the bowel for excretion. When the gut lining is damaged by poor diet, stress, infection, medications and unhealthy bacteria, it becomes inflamed and loses its ability to protect us from toxins. This places a hugh load on other detoxing organs but particularly the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system.
Your liver is your major organ for detoxification; its role is to process everything that is absorbed into the blood stream. It effectively processes the toxins and excretes them via the bowel and kidneys. You are dependent on your liver to do this job very well. With poor lifestyles and the number of toxins we are exposed to the liver is constantly under stress. Attention to the live is a major part of the detox program.
The role your kidneys play in removal of waste from the body is vital and is often neglected. More substances are eliminated via the kidneys than any other route.
