Detox After The Holidays

 

 

Every day, the human body is exposed to endogenous and environmental toxins and toxicants. Common toxins and toxicants include heavy metals (e.g., lead, mercury), chemicals used in agriculture and manufacturing (e.g., pesticides, dioxins), and biotoxins (e.g., bacterial endotoxin). When not eliminated by the body’s natural detoxification system, toxins and toxicants can accumulate in organs and tissues rich in fat such as adipose and brain tissues where they disrupt normal cellular processes, with the potential to cause disease. Supporting detoxification through diet is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. In fact, an evolving evidence base describes the dependence of the body’s natural metabolic detoxification system on proper nutrition, including specific foods and nutrients. – from WholisticMatters “Metabolic Detoxification”

We know at times (especially during the busy holiday season) it may be difficult to obtain proper nutrition and adhere to a whole foods based diet. This is why a detoxification program that supports your foundational  nutrition while detoxifying is so important. Call or visit us to learn more about how we can help you detoxify and support your body’s ability to heal and stay healthy.
