The crucial need for detoxification in today’s world starts with you.

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.

The Vital Mind-Body Connection When Healing Chronic Illness

Just HOW important is our mind in relation to healing our physical body? Well, simply put – it is the backbone to every single treatment plan I create. If you are not aware of your daily thoughts and behaviours, your healing time can be much more lengthy and complex. It is simply essential to not only understand how your mental state affects your body and the healing process on a physiological level, it is also vital to practice daily, create new habits and ultimately make change. Let me explain.

When you have a chronic illness, over time you develop deep-rooted subconscious thoughts about being unwell. As a coping mechanism, you begin to create a lot of self-talk and beliefs about yourself – specifically your body.  Furthermore, you begin to adopt a ‘victim’ role and the result over time is that you begin to relive this role day to day, with almost no awareness.

We think seventy to ninety thousand thoughts daily. Most are subconscious, which means they are running on automatic pilot. We must begin to tap into these in order to fully heal. I can not stress this enough.

Is it just fluff – thinking this way? Absolutely not. And let me clarify, shifting your hardwired brain pathways is not just positive thinking. It requires awareness, focus and repetitive shifting of thoughts and beliefs, which will eventually change your daily experience of life. Reputable, scientific research is continuously showing the positive effects of changing your brain’s thought patterns on your physical state and well-being.

The process is not easy. But with repeated practice, slowly, the brain will begin to respond and ultimately change. We call this neuroplasticity. And WE are the ones who are fully in control of this change!

The thing about the brain is that it is ADAPTABLE. However, it will fight you for some time on the change. It’s easier to travel down pathways that are already ‘paved’ (used frequently). This is where it is important to have support, as you navigate through the webs of change.

So how DO we do this?

Well, it’s a layered approach and requires dedication and patience.

I will guide you through a series of steps to make this process more enjoyable and manageable. Meditation is one way to access your subconscious thoughts and behaviours. Another is creating new daily habits. There are so many valuable tools available to help you in literally creating a new, healthier version of you.

Awareness is step one. Once you become aware of how self-harming your thoughts are and how ‘protective’ your behaviours are, you are opening the gateways of change.

I have seen incredible healing stories with the use of neuroplastic strategies ALONE. No other treatments. The body and brain like to work in sync. When you can align the two entities and create a space for healing, the body will do some pretty miraculous things. I have only recently come to understand the immense power behind the connection of one’s mental health and the state of their physical body.
