DETOXIFICATION

The process of removing toxic substances from the body is a natural process that takes place in a number of ways.

  •  The liver
  • The kidneys
  • The intestines, including the colon
  • The lungs
  • The skin
  • The lymphatic system

Detoxification is a process that your body does naturally to neutralize, transform or get rid of unwanted materials or toxins. It is a primary function of the body, constantly working and interacting with all the other systems of the body. When we talk about detoxification as a treatment technique, what we are really discussing is methods for enhancing and optimizing the function of your body’s own natural detoxification systems.

This is accomplished in two ways:

  1. By decreasing the amount of toxins that enter the body
  2. Supporting the body’s detoxification and elimination systems so they function at an optimal level.

As a culture most people are acutely aware of their external cleanliness and appearance: They wash their hair each day, shower, brush and floss their teeth, file their nails, and like to look and smell their best. However, very few people understand the importance of remaining ‘clean’ and looking ‘healthy’ on the inside. It’s simply not a topic that is discussed at school or within the home or in mainstream culture. Even more important is the fact that most people do how to tell when their body’s internal cleansing systems are not functioning properly.

Detoxification and Cleansing

Constipation is one of the most frequent gastrointestinal complaints in the USA and Western countries. There are at least 2.5 million doctor visits per year for constipation and hundreds of millions of dollars are spent on laxatives each year. The number of cases of fungal overgrowth and parasitic infections is estimated to be increasing rapidly worldwide.

Despite these statistics the detoxification system is mostly ignored by the modern medical system.

 Although the bulk of the work is done by the liver and the intestinal tract, the kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin are critical components of this complex detoxification system. The purpose of any detoxification program is primarily to support these organs of elimination so that toxins that are present within the body can be metabolized and excreted. The incredible results achieved through internal cleansing is most evident through the reduction or elimination of signs and symptoms experienced by the client.

An effective detoxification system is an essential component for optimal health and vitality.

THE BODY GENIUS INSTITUTE – INTEGRATIVE HEALTH

The Body Genius Institute Integrative Health program can be seen as a mentorship program. By spending time with one of our Integrative Health Practitioners (IHP) you will learn:

  • The importance of a healthy lifestyle: Quality sleep, stress relief, organic whole food diet, regular exercise, adequate hydration, mindfulness practices, and mental, emotional and spiritual health.
  • To identify the signs and symptoms of a poorly functioning detoxification system and learn how this applies to your condition
  • How to improve the functioning of your body’s own detoxification system
  • How to decrease toxins from within your body through diet and natural supplementation. The human body needs hundreds of different enzymes, vitamins and minerals to rid the body of unwanted waste and toxins.
  • What type of cleanse is most helpful for your condition. The type of cleanse and duration of treatment is different for each client. This will be dependent upon your unique personal health history and your individual requirements.

Every person is exposed to toxins, chemicals, fungus and parasites. This may occur in the home, at work, through the foods we eat or the water we drink. Travelling overseas is another common way in which people are exposed to parasites and other foreign pathogens. The solution is not to panic or become afraid every time you eat food or have a drink, but rather to learn how to maximize your health, cleanse your body regularly and improve your lifestyle.
