Fatigue, Energy and Detoxing
Fatigue is a subjective feeling of tiredness that has a gradual onset. Fatigue can be acute or chronic and can have physical or mental causes. Often detoxing can help with fatigue and improve energy.
Toxicity literally is how poisonous something is. Many substances are only slightly poisonous so that lesser amounts can be consumed without harm. If you have large exposure over an extended period of time then eventually you can overwhelm your ability to ‘detox’ or remove them from the body.
Cleansing/Detox, the in’s and out’s.
The market is flooded with products including Lemon Detox, Liver Detox and then, of course, the detox and cleanse diets that cause rapid weight loss claiming to cleanse the insides.
Sadly, most of the products contain different forms of natural products that cause a strong laxative effect; hence the fast weight loss is often just water. This type of cleansing isn’t addressing the whole body.
SIGNS YOU MAY NEED A DETOX
- Reoccurring headaches and migraines
- Joint and muscle pain and tenderness
- Nerve pain and numbness
- Sensitivity to environmental chemical, odours
- Weight loss, and weight loss plateaus
- Clearing skin, acne & eczema
- Bloating, constipation & bad breath
- A feeling of poor health
- Fatigue, exhaustion & mood swings
- Hormonal problems, painful periods, irregular periods
Detoxification is a term used to describe the practice of removing toxins from the body. These suspected toxins come from:
- Environment, exhaust fumes, factories, and EMF fields
- Building materials, paints, carpets, solvents.
- Food, pesticides, herbicides, and heavy minerals
- Water, chlorine, and fluorine
- Cosmetics, beauty and cleaning product
- Drugs, Dentistry-amalgam fillings, cigarettes
Internal-exercise, stress management, free radicals, poor digestion
Try as you might we are surrounded by chemical toxins. The body puts a great deal of energy into processing and eliminating a vast number of toxins every day. Imagine the detox process is like a sequence of events. If any link in this chain is missing or broken the elimination of toxins is impaired, as a result, more toxins will remain in the body and there will be an increase in toxic load.
HOW TO DETOX SAFELY
During the consult, I will take a thorough case history and get an understanding of your level of chemical/toxic exposure. Rather than an ‘off the shelf’ plan, you are given thorough detox diet plan designed just for you
When detoxifying your body, it is important that all the key detoxification organs and systems (Digestive, Liver, Kidney, Skin, Lungs) are all cleared. It is so important that each of these organs is treated in the right order, otherwise, you may experience unpleasant side effects from your detoxification and you may end up with few of the health benefits that a good detoxification program can offer you.
The steps are easy to implement and follow, I use the most recent scientific research combined with clinical experience to ensure the right program is selected for you.
