We live in a toxic world. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the products we use. Toxins are all around us. We simply can’t escape the detrimental exposure in our modern world. Cancer statistics are increasing at an alarming rate. Close to half of the world’s population will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. And at some point we need to take a stance. At some point we need to create change.
Chronic illnesses are becoming more commonplace and not just among older populations. We are seeing more and more very sick young men and women. As practitioners, we are often baffled at how these people can feel so unwell when they appear to otherwise live healthy lifestyles. There is a missing link.
So, what IS going on? Aren’t our bodies designed to filter and eliminate toxins?
Yes. HOWEVER, with the continuous exposure to everyday toxins, our essential detoxifying organs simply can’t keep up! They become sluggish (picture a drain that is backed up) and as a result no longer work efficiently. Over time, there is an overflow of toxic substances that are forced to be reabsorbed into our bloodstream, gut, brain and organs.
When we can not eliminate harmful substances in the body we begin to see a systemic effect, and this can negatively harm your overall sense of well-being. Your organs become overworked and fatigued, your immune system is heightened and inflammation increases. This cascade of physiological and systemic effects make you feel simply unwell. Some of the most common symptoms we see when someone is dealing with toxicity are: fatigue, brain fog, aches and pains, mood changes, bloating, decreased bowel function, headaches, and insomnia.
So, what can we do?
Actually quite a lot! And it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or create any harm to the body. Through diet modifications, herbal tinctures and manual therapies we can begin to support the body’s natural ability to detoxify the harmful substances we are exposed to on a daily basis.
The bottom line is that if we can bring the body back into balance – the way it is intended to be – disease will slowly disappear. And detoxification is key to balancing the body’s natural capabilities.
When I work one on one with you, the process of proper detoxification includes a consultation to properly assess your current level of toxicity through history, past and current symptoms and detailed specimen collection. Once your results are reviewed, we will devise an individualized treatment plan that will address your concerns in a methodical, safe and effective way. Your treatment will be for YOU. It will reflect your physical, emotional and spiritual sense of self so that we can ensure we are working at a pace that is comfortable for you during all phases of your treatment.
It is my professional belief that detoxification is CRUCIAL for well-being. Our present state of ‘health’ as a society is a direct reflection of just how essential regular detoxification is for our vitality and longevity.
It’s so encouraging to see the positive changes that occur from a symptom perspective with detoxification. I want to stress how imperative it is to work with a professional who can design and support you during this process. Many people get sick on detoxes – and this is completely unnecessary and avoidable.
Let’s work together to bring your body back into balance!
It’s time to heal.
