Health – and the experience of feeling well – is determined by a whole-body perspective. 

Why is detoxification so important? 

  • Toxins affect the entire body.
  • Where in your body you experience the effects of toxins, is determined by your genes (families have disease tendencies based on their shared genes),
  • The environment you grew up in (city or agricultural, mining or industrial) determines what you were exposed to environmentally. 
  • Environmental and lifestyle toxin exposure may impact your genes, affecting their function. When these toxins negatively affect genes they are referred to as Epigenetic Factors.
  • Your lifestyle choices (food, drink, exercise, sleep, stress) impact your ability to add to or remove environmental toxins.
  • Your stress levels impact every cell in your body, including your ability to properly manage the toxins it is exposed to.
  • Detoxification protocols must be both safe and effective.
  • There is no need to feel awful for prolonged periods during a detox.
  • When the body and organs of elimination of properly supported, uniquely geared to your own personal needs, detoxification is neither daunting nor difficult.
  • Detoxification is best done on an on-going basis, gently and safely, using the correct supplements and food, for you.
  • Drip protocols to support the liver and the cell membranes are available at our clinic, from our Medical Doctor.

TEST FOR TOXINS

If you need proof of what is lurking inside you, then it is best to do the tests, and fill out the questionnaires.

 

There are many different options, and each test yields valuable information:

  • Toxin blood review – extensive determination of the type, number and situation of the toxins in your body.
  • General blood tests – determine the current state of your body, vitamin and mineral levels, liver enzymes and more.
  • Genomics-based (DNA) Wellness tests – a broad overview of some of your important inherited genes, how well they function and your genetic tendencies.
  • Pharmacogenomics tests – show how you metabolise pharmaceutical or recreational drugs, some toxins, some OTC drugs, some herbs and more.
  • Medical Symptoms Questionnaire – assesses your current state of health and wellness, based on your symptoms. Good for identifying problems, finding solutions and tracking results.

WHAT IS ROOT CAUSE CORRECTION?

In line with the famed Root Cause approach of Functional Medicine, we always look for the foundation, or root cause, of a symptom or disease that you are currently experiencing. Full investigation is always recommended.

 

Broadly speaking, the root cause of an illness could be one or a combination of the following:

  • Sleep
    Without adequate, restful sleep the body is unable to regulate itself properly.

Correct this Root Cause issue first.

  • Stress
    A major disruptor of our hormones and natural circadian rhythms, stress reduction is required before more rigorous cleansing or dietary correction can take place.
  • Diet & Nutrition
    Incorrect eating is a major contributor to mental and physical stress, poor sleep, and may be a source of toxins.
  • Exercise
    Regular exercise has been proven to reduce the incidence of disease and promote all-important mitochondrial health.
  • Detoxification
    Removing damaging and inflammation-promoting toxins from the body enables it to function properly and self-regulate.
