Natural health and nutritional medicine places much emphasis on the health of the digestive tract. This is logical, when you consider that it is the centre for both nutrient absorption and waste / toxin elimination.
What’s more, the health of the liver, lymphatic system and immune system are all greatly affected by the state of the intestines.
The colon’s main role in digestion is to extract water from the waste-
However, in our society where we have an affluent, over-
As a result, poor digestion and related conditions, such as diverticulitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (with alternating spells of constipation and diarrhoea) are commonplace -

The Digestive system can be considered the most important set of organs in our body.
Every single cell of our body needs a supply of healthy nutrients to survive .
We are often told “we are what we eat” and poor nutrition will lead to problems like headache, tiredness, poor concentration and memory problems as well as the the more obvious ailments such as gastric ulcers, constipation, diarrhoea and flatulence and the now common diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome.
Detox has been practiced for centuries paticularly in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.
A detox program can help restore natural health
assissting the elimination of toxins through the intestines, kidneys and skin,
Encouraging the liver to eliminate toxins from the body,
Refueling the body with healthy nutrients so improving the circulation of nutrients in the blood.
Our Detox food suppliments will help you on Detox plan but for the best results eliminate toxins from your lifestyle. Reduce your consumption of alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats.
Another deterrent to good health is stress. Stress triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system.
While these hormones can provide the "adrenaline rush" to win a race or meet a deadline, in large amounts they create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver.
Yoga, Chi Kung and meditation are simple and effective ways to relieve stress by resetting your physical and mental reactions to the inevitable stress life will bring.
What is body detoxification?
Nowadays, you will often hear people referring to the fact that they are "on a detox". This might be because they have enjoyed a period of over-
Either way, many people feel that they get a much-
While body detox may seem to many to be just another trendy fad, in fact, its potential health benefits have been recognised down through the ages.
All of the long-
We live in a modern age of industry and technology, which has a direct impact on the environment and food chain. As a result, much of our air, food and water contains highly toxic chemicals, pollutants and other contaminants. We are exposed to ever-
The liver is the body’s primary detoxification organ -
The digestive system: The liver's main function in the digestive system is to process the nutrients absorbed from the small intestine. Bile from the liver secreted into the small intestine also plays an important role in digesting fat. Without efficient digestion, there can be fermentation in the stomach and small intestine, and then putrefaction in the colon. Over the years, accumulated waste can have a significant impact on toxic load and bacterial activity -
The urinary system: The kidneys receive toxins that have been broken down and made water soluble by the liver, such as the end products of medications, organic chemicals, yeast and hormones.
The lymphatic system: This invaluable, but often forgotten, system filters the bloodstream of toxins and waste and acts like a garbage collection service. It consists of lymph (a type of fluid), lymphocytes (white blood cells that attack bacteria), lymph vessels (which carry the liquid), lymph nodes (which house the white blood cells), tonsils, the thymus gland, Peyer's patches of the intestines, and the spleen. Unlike blood, which is pumped around by the heart, lymph relies on three activities to keep it moving: (i) contractions of smooth muscle in the lymph vessel walls; (ii) contractions of the skeletal muscles during exercise or daily activities; and (iii) movements of the chest during breathing. This is why exercise and deep breathing are so important for body cleansing and detoxification.
The respiratory system: Gas exchange is the main function of the lungs; inhaled oxygen is supplied to the blood and carbon dioxide is exhaled. The respiratory system has a number of mechanisms to reduce the amount of toxins entering the body. For example, the hairs in our noses trap dust and pollutants, which are expelled when we blow them.
The skin: This is actually our largest organ of elimination and, if working efficiently, can excrete a significant amount of water soluble toxins. Sweat has a similar composition to urine and is an important detoxification fluid -
Natural detoxification and detox support
The human body is best able to recognise and make use of natural substances, such as nutrients from fruit, vegetables and other whole foods. Such nutrients are naturally alkalising, cleansing and protective, and can be used by the body to fuel its detoxification, repairing and healing processes.
By contrast, synthetic "man-
For the most part, our bodies are more than capable of dealing with the range of toxins they are exposed to on a daily basis. However, problems can arise if nutritional requirements are not being fully met or if the level of toxins becomes too high.
For example, the liver has two distinct detoxification processes or "pathways" that it needs to go through in order to convert toxins into waste products that can then be safely eliminated from the body. Each of these stages involves a number of very specific nutrients, including B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, folic acid, glutathione, antioxidants, carotenoids, amino acids (such as glutamine), and sulphurated phyto-
If the detoxification organs and systems are not functioning efficiently, because of nutritional deficiencies, a high toxic load, or both, our bodies are likely to let us know! Common signs of a system overloaded with toxins include abdominal bloating, nausea, coated tongue, bad breath, indigestion, flatulence, constipation, diarrhoea, body odour, overheating, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), weight issues, frequent headaches, sore joints, tense muscles and skin conditions (such as acne, eczema and psoriasis).
In these circumstances, you may decide to detox to help lessen the strain on your body and cleanse your system.
There are many different types of detoxification programmes out there -
Based on how you are feeling, you may decide that a particular part of your body is most burdened. For example, the digestive system -
Whichever you choose, always remember to consult your doctor or a qualified health practitioner before changing your diet or taking supplements, particularly if you are on medication, pregnant or unwell.
Most good detoxification programmes will advocate a common-
