What is detoxification?
Well simply put it is the cornerstone of health. Detoxification is the process of clearing toxins from the body and it involves neutralising toxins through the liver and facilitating their removal via elimination channels eg. Faeces, urine and sweat. Detoxification isn’t something you only do now and then. It is, in fact, something that happens in your body on an ongoing basis in order to minimise the damage from any harmful substances you encounter and eliminate them from your system.
Sources of toxins in Australia
Whilst the human body has a natural capacity to process toxins, todays polluted environment may overburden the natural detoxification processes, especially when combined with endogenous toxins that are created due to poor dietary and lifestyle habits. It would be safe to say that in the modern world, toxic load is even more important than nutritional deficiencies in terms of disease states. Some of the frequent sources of toxins include:
- Air pollution
- Heavy metals
- Endogenous toxins

Detox for health
By detoxing appropriately, you should reduce the toxic load on your body by adopting a clean, healthy lifestyle and eating fresh organic foods packed with free radical-fighting antioxidants. You should also make use of specific foods, herbs and nutrients that support and enhance the functioning of your body’s organs of elimination. A four step program is recommended.
- Reduce toxic accumulation
- Support the bowel and other channels of elimination
- Aid liver detoxification
- Repair and regenerate the body
Everybody varies in their ability to process and eliminate toxins and in how toxins impact their health so it is important to make sure you seek the help of a qualified health professional for a specific, individually designed program including supportive herbs, nutrients and diet suggestions.
Symptoms are the body’s warning signals. They are the pointers which, if carefully noted, will indicate the deficiency and aid in prescribing the correct remedy required. To help understand your health status, analysing the body signs are extremely helpful.
