Body Purification – Detox

What is Whole Body Purification also known as Detox?  Whole Body Purification is merely the internal cleansing and detoxification of your whole body.   Think of it as “spring cleaning” for your insides.

Why do I need Purification?

Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight. We are exposed to external toxins every day, including pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of the normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Purification offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.

How does Purification improve Weight Loss?

When your body becomes overloaded with toxins and can’t rid itself of them naturally, it will store the excess toxins in your fat. Storing the toxins in your fat is the body’s way of keeping the toxins removed so they won’t cause damage to more vital parts of your body such as your organs, arteries, cells, etc. Until your body can detoxify those more vital parts of your body, it won’t lose fat and risk releasing those toxins. This is why some people hit a weight plateau or cannot lose weight no matter what they do. Their bodies are too toxic yet intelligent enough to hang onto the fat in order to protect their body from damage or unease.

Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions:

• Stuffy head
• Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
• Digestion and other gastrointestinal problems
• Food cravings and weight gain
• Reduced mental clarity
• Low libido

How do I determine my Toxic Load?

Your toxic load is the number of toxins that your body needs to process and get rid of. By answering the following questions, you may gain some insight as to your current toxic load.

Do you or have you…

•  Eaten processed foods?
•  Eat non-organic fruits and vegetables?
•  Consume meat and poultry that are not free range?
•  Consume genetically altered food?
•  Ever used artificial sweeteners?
•  Drink soda?
•  Eaten foods that have preservatives, additives, dyes, or sweeteners added?
•  Go out to eat too fast food restaurants regularly?
•  Charbroil or grill foods?
•  Drink coffee regularly?
•  Drink alcohol?
•  Drink tap water?

If the majority of your answers are “yes”, then it is likely that your diet contributes significantly to your toxic load. Beyond diet, many external toxins, such as perfumes, cleaners, and pollution, add to your load. We can help you assess your toxic load.
