Clean up your act! – Why you should consider a detox


BurgerWhile there is no question that a Detoxification Programme is one of the most beneficial things you can do to rapidly improve the state of your health, there is lots of confusion as to what is the best way to detoxify your system. Detoxification is a complex process that should be professionally supervised to ensure you get the best results.

Many people think that a Detox is a miserable process that involves extreme changes in diet and living off raw vegetables for weeks on end. This is not true! In fact, lack of food during a Detox, particularly protein, can slow the detoxification process and can add to your toxic load. Some people don’t realize that your body needs certain nutrients to safely and effectively detoxify. If we liberate stored toxins back into our system without ensuring that the final step in elimination is complete we run the risk of making matters worse.  Find out the safest and most effective way to detox…..

How to Detoxify

Our Integrated Detoxification Programme is individually tailored for each patient. Many people don’t realize that depending on your health, detoxification can be completed in a matter of weeks for some patients. Patients with long standing health conditions generally take a little more time to thoroughly remove toxins from their system.

Get a Clear Picture Before You StartUrinary indicans test

We take a clinical approach to detoxification by assessing your level of toxicity using the Urinary Indicans test in clinic. This test is used to identify toxicity, including the overgrowth of gut bacteria and “leaky gut syndrome”, which allows the transport of undigested food molecules, bacteria and toxins to cross the gut membranes and pass into your circulation adding to your toxic load. The Urinary Indicans test is then used throughout your Integrated Detox Programme to monitor your progress and ensure that you get the results you need.


We also use Live Blood Analysis to screen for signs of inflammation and toxicity before a detox, this way we know what we’re dealing with and are able to repeat the process at the end of your detox to make sure you have got the results you need. Signs of inflammation and toxicity in the blood look like this:

Integrated Detox Programme


Our Detox Programme works on a number of different levels to systematically address toxic load, we ensure that toxins are safely removed from your system by:

Reducing toxin exposure through dietary and lifestyle changes

  • Removing bad bacteria and waste from the digestive system
  • Renewing and rebuilding the digestive tract lining
  • Replacing the bad bacteria with healthy ones and improving digestive function
  • Helping the body release more toxins, particularly addressing the gut, liver and kidneys

Did you know?

Stress is a major cause of toxicity –  Not only is an overloaded system stressful, contributing to fatigue and mood swings, stress  actually contributes to toxicity by generating excess hormones and chemicals that need to be cleared by the body, which is why even if we have a great diet we can all benefit from detoxification periodically.

Toxins are often stored in body fat – This is the body’s way of safely storing toxins that it can’t process. An overloaded system is more likely to retain body fat – another good reason to do a Detox Programme!

Woman EatingWinter is the perfect time to Detox! – This is the time of year we tend to stay indoors, eat comfort food and let our usual healthy habits go. Even if we think we have a reasonable diet, external and internal toxins can accumulate causing sluggish hormones, weight gain, low energy levels, dull skin, poor digestive and immune function, which are all symptoms of a toxic system.

Detoxifying your body can be one of most effective strategies for rapidly improving the state of your health. Doing a Detox allows the body to cleanse and regenerate, helping you to function at your best.
