There’s a lot of fad detox programs out there which can cause stress on the body, so it’s important to make sure you detox right.
Detoxification is something our bodies do daily – via our sweat, urine, bowels and breath. It’s the body’s way of getting rid of toxins so they don’t store in our tissues.
If we over indulge, eg too much alcohol, fatty food, sugar, medications, lack of sleep, sitting all day for work, lack of fresh air and exercise, our detox pathways can become sluggish. They still work, but not at their peak function. Our gut bugs can become out of balance, with the ones that cause bloating and tiredness in high numbers and the ones that support our immune function and gut health at lower numbers.
At Vibe, our Naturopaths and Nutritionists have 2 & 4 week detox programs tailored to suit your needs.
Our detox program enhances the function of the 5 elimination organs, the Kidneys, Liver, Lungs, Bowel and Skin. Naturopathy has a strong tradition of detoxifcation as a healing tool and a Naturopath can help you detox safely, with the herbs that best suit your body, to help you feel energized and re-set for the new year.
Our detox program gives you all the home tips, recipes and herbs you need. We also provide information on how to remove the main sources of toxins in your life and give your body a “holiday” from life’s excesses and indulgences.
The detox focus is on lots of fresh foods, you will not be hungry!
It’s based on clean, plant based foods and healthy animal proteins to provide your liver and bowel with the vitamins, minerals and proteins they need to enhance detoxification.
We also provide herbs to enhance phase 1 and 2 liver detox – which is liver’s way of gathering rubbish and then recycling or breaking it down for elimination. Signs of poor phase 2 liver detox are pretty common – hormonal fluctuations such as PMS, acne, bloating, headaches, poor alcohol or coffee tolerance and food intolerances.
Another detox principle is a good old weed, feed and seed, just like you’d do with your garden.
“Weed” refers to removal of bad bacteria in the body like gut parasites and overgrowth of bad gut bacteria. These bad bugs thrive on diets high in breads, beer, sugar, alcohol, fatty foods and after medicines such as the contraceptive pill and antibiotics.
“Seed” is the replacement of good bacteria in the gut with probiotics and fermented foods.
“Feed” is like fertilising and mulching your garden, but for your insides! Providing nutrients and foods that sustain the growth of good bacteria and help repair “leaky gut.”
How Will I Feel?
Some people may feel a little tired for the first couple of days of the detox if they are used to having coffee and sugar to pep them up. Within a few days they start to feel lighter and less sluggish and more energized. The majority of people feel amazing after the detox, with increased energy, better digestion, less bloating and less discomfort after eating.
An added benefit can be losing a few kilos, losing the pot belly and clearer skin.
