As time goes on, our bodies collect toxins. These toxins from the environment, chemicals and pollutants in the air, food, personal care products and water, disrupt the way that our bodies work. Each year, more than 4 billion pounds of chemical compounds are released into the environment. These include:
- Heavy Metals
- Pesticides and herbicides
- Flame retardants
- PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls)
The result of this is inflammation and disease. Many toxins accumulate in fat cells which makes it difficult to lose weight. We lack energy and feel run down.
To preserve our health, it is important to unload these toxins. Our bodies are designed to process and remove the toxicities of our environment via our elimination systems-liver, kidneys, skin and digestive tract. There are so many toxins that we can’t avoid and that our body can’t handle getting them all removed from our bodies. A detox plan helps to push the systems that we have to increase the body’s ability to process and eliminate these from the body.
A metabolic detoxification plan should help support the natural ability of our body to eliminate these toxins. Naturopathic Health Center offers a clinically designed program to do just this. The program, either 10 or 28 days, includes supplementation, instructions and a simple meal plan. It is easy to follow and it does not leave you feeling hungry.
