Your Practitioner will recommend a detox program specifically for you, taking into consideration your symptoms, health history and any other influencing factors.
The program will include carefully selected nutritional and herbal formulas, together with dietary and lifestyle guidelines to enhance your detox efforts, and help you achieve great results. These dietary and lifestyle tips will help you to learn how to decrease your toxin burden over the long-term.
Your Practitioner guided detoxification program will be tailored to your individual needs, and may focus on one of the following health goals:
A foundational, comprehensive detox program may be recommended for individuals in need of ‘wiping the slate clean’ and returning to an ideal state of health.
A program such as this will enable your Practitioner to get you back to a healthy baseline and minimise the broad range of symptoms you might be suffering from.
This program will typically be recommended for four weeks and offers a detox solution for those who want to return to wellness and live the healthiest life possible. It is also suitable as a regular ‘spring clean’ detox or for those who have recently overindulged and are eager to get their energy back; such as following the New Year period or after a decadent holiday
While the foundational support provided in a detox program designed to ‘reset’ your health will support digestion; your Practitioner may choose to make some additional recommendations for those with ongoing or extreme gastrointestinal symptoms. Antimicrobial herbs and essential oils are a welcome addition in these situations to eliminate digestive pathogens that might be contributing to your symptoms, with strain-specific probiotics further assisting to restore healthy gut function and rebuild a healthy intestinal microbial balance. As the gut is ‘the seat of health’ and has a strong influence over all aspects of wellbeing, a program such as this is often recommended for managing non-digestive related symptoms as well. Depending on the intensity of your symptoms, this program will likely be recommended for four to six weeks in duration.
Similarly, the foundational support provided in a detox designed to ‘reset’ your health will optimise liver detoxification; however, some individuals may experience a much higher chemical exposure than others due to their lifestyle habits, or living or working circumstances. As such, additional antioxidants and liver support for chemical clearance and heavy metal chelation may be required. Again, depending on the intensity of your symptoms, this program will likely be recommended for four to six weeks in duration
Over recent years detox programs have become very popular and even fashionable. There are now countless types of detox programs which claim to be a quick-fix. The one-size fits all approach to detox can dramatically affect both the safety and the efficacy of the program. These programs lack the support of a Healthcare Practitioner and the advice they can offer to suitably prescribe what’s required to address your health requirements.
A Practitioner supported program has numerous benefits. The supplements recommended by your Practitioner for your detoxification program can only be prescribed by qualified Practitioners and are evidence-based, low reactive formulas that are of the highest quality. Unlike a store-bought program, a clinical detoxification program is tailored to suit your needs as an individual.
Regular screening and contact with your Practitioner offers additional benefit to help evaluate the efficacy and safety of the program for you, as well as help to support and motivate you to keep on track so you can achieve optimal results.
