Supporting our bodies natural detoxification process is a beneficial and in some situations necessary step in the process of achieving optimal health. The problem is there a number of companies out there that take the have taken advantage of us and used buzz word “Detox” as an opportunity to sell the next great product that promises to deliver all of our health and fitness goals but continually fall short. What we really need is a detoxification support program that is built to help our bodies in the areas we need it most.
We live in a toxic world filled with environmental toxins, toxins in make-up, lotions, clean products, water, food - even organic food still have some level of toxins – though significantly less in most situations. Get the point? We are inundated with toxins, and though they body is designed to get rid of toxins, we don’t always give the body the raw materials needed to exist in our overly toxic world.
We have developed a detoxification program that supports all 3 phases of liver detoxification, expedite fat loss, and improve your ability to repair mentally and physically.
How do we do it?
We use a combination of herbal formulas, amino acids, super foods and nutritional recommendations to form a powerful detoxification program. We also strongly recommend incorporating acupuncture and infrared sauna to enhance all three phases of detoxification.
How does our program work?
We have designed our detoxification program to support the three phases of detoxification in the liver. The liver is the main organ of detoxification and the target of most detox programs. Its primary role in detoxification is to neutralize or remove harmful toxins in the body – Though other organs including the Bowel, Kidney, and Lymphatic system all play important roles. The liver achieves this by converting toxins into compounds that can be excreted via sweat, stool, urine. This process is broken into three main phases:
Phase I: This phase is responsible for the conversion of fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble toxins. Think of this phase as a custodian gathering trash from each office in an office building and putting them in one large container in the basement of the building –This is the phase of the detoxification most packaged “Detox” products focus on.
Phase II: This phase neutralizes the free radicals generated in Phase I. This phase is dependent on enzymes and co-factors to facilitate mechanisms including; acetylation, glucuronidation, glycine, glutathione, methylation and sulfation to form water-soluble metabolites. -Think of this phase as the custodian moving the container holding all the trash into position for the garbage truck. – Ideally, all toxins addressed in Phase I are efficiently moved to Phase II, but it doesn’t always work that way, any inefficiency in these phases of detoxification can cause a build up of toxins.
Phase III: This is the easiest phase of detoxification; it is simply the excretion of toxins from Phase I and Phase II in bile, feces, sweat and urine for removal. –Think of this phase as the garbage company picking up the trash and moving it to the dump.
If you support phase I and fail to support phase II or III it creates a detoxification log jam. This is one reason it is so important to make sure a detoxification program is right for you as an individual before you start
