First of all, don't let the word "detoxification," the abbreviated "detox" or "cleanse" scare you off. Despite the new age preconceptions that come with these words, they are actually describing a process that your body is undergoing at all times. The intent of any program that involves detoxification should always be to support the processes that your body is already performing but may need a little help from time to time.
Our bodies are subjected to toxins everyday. Whether it's our favorite household cleaners, the preservatives in our food or the pollution in the air, we are constantly barraged with environmental and dietary toxins. If you look at the trends in pesticides and chemicals over the last few decades, there is no doubt that these toxins continue to increase in our environment. Luckily, our bodies are designed to handle a certain amount of toxic load. Our liver has taken on the fight to keep these toxins from wreaking havoc in our bodies. Unfortunately, the ever mounting toxic load in our environment can be more than the liver can handle at times. During these times, toxins are deposited in our tissues, fat and organs. As toxins accumulate in the body, their ability to meddle in our daily biochemistry (the normal biological and chemical processes that occur in our bodies) increases. Research shows that these toxins are able to effect the way our bodies balance blood sugar and metabolize cholesterol. This means that these toxins may be making you gain weight or the reason that your body seems resistant to weight loss. Other symptoms that you may be due to an increased toxic load are: fatigue-related disorders, digestive problems (constipation, bloating, diarrhea, etc.), headaches, skin rashes, joint pain, poor concentration (often described as a "foggy" feeling) and irritability.
The potential benefits of detoxification are vast but the most noticeable are usually increased energy, weight loss/ decreased body fat, healthier skin and hair, clearer thinking and relief from symptoms mentioned above. Even better, when done correctly and with a clean/healthy diet, it can help establish healthy eating habits for a long-term benefit of improved health.
The 14 day detox and nutrition workshop is designed to support the natural detoxification of the body. This is accomplished by decreasing your toxic load with a clean/healthy diet, fueling the pathways that are responsible for healthy detoxification, and promoting and balancing optimal toxin elimination while avoiding reabsorption of toxins as they are released.
The recommended diet is a hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory diet designed to allow the gut to heal from past damage while reducing the toxic load on the liver. The guidelines for what to eat and what to avoid are made easier with recipes, snack ideas and support from the physicians on staff.
The detoxification process is supported with high quality nutrients, herbs and antioxidants from Designs for Health. Their 14 Day Detox-Cleanse Kit includes:
