The Results are in, your health success formula is…

Are you ready for a new way of thinking about health?

The body is an ecosystem. Every cell has its own unique function and purpose. When one part of this system breaks down, it can affect every other part of the system. The key to optimal health is balance and harmony between all parts of your body’s ecosystem – from your gut to your immune system, from your brain to your heart.

We live in a toxic world.

There are more than 140,000 chemicals in the European market and since World War II, over 85,000 synthetic chemicals have been registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency. We are bombarded by a range of toxins on a daily basis from the food we eat to the air we breathe, the water we drink and the products we use. Our body also creates toxic substances as a result of cellular metabolism and intestinal bacteria. Whether internal or external these toxins can diminish health.

The good news is that humans have evolved highly ingenious physiological processes to detoxify. These processes mainly occur in the liver, where toxic substances are converted into non-toxic by-products which are then eliminated via urine and stool.

Significant control of these detoxification processes rests in our genes, which highlights the fundamental nature of this process in our existence.

Any toxicity that the body is exposed to but is unable to clear over time will have negative effects on our long-term health.

What it means

The primary area of focus for the biological process of detoxification is the liver, where the detoxification system is housed. The kidneys and intestines also have some additional detoxification capacity

Why it’s important

The detoxification core process is fundamental to overall health and protects humans from exposure to environmental and metabolic toxins. Neurological and immune-related disorders are the most common symptoms of toxicity.

Powerful Insight

The process of detoxification is under genetic control and exceptionally individualised. Pregnant women and children are most susceptible to toxic exposures.
