What is a detox – Why do it?

Detox is abbreviation of detoxification. This is the body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body – a necessary function our bodies naturally perform to keep our system free of poison.

The body has an amazing ability to cleanse itself, but every day our body is bombarded with toxins from such places as:

  • Processed foods
  • Alcohol
  • Damaged fats
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Household cleaning products
  • Food additives & preservatives
  • Pesticides
  • Medication

After the festive period, when we may have indulged a little too much, the natural routes of elimination can become quickly overwhelmed. When this happens, you may need to give the body a helping hand by undertaking a detox programme to aid cleansing the body. Colon hydrotherapy is widely considered an integral part of any detox programme.

Some signs that your body is not cleansing efficiently include:

  • Lethargy
  • Body odour
  • Foul smelling stools
  • Bad breath
  • Poor digestion
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Poor appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Obesity
  • Joint pains
  • Skin problems

The benefit of a detox with colon hydrotherapy can leave you with glowing skin, a clean smelling body, efficient digestion with regular bowel movements, improved sleep, mental clarity, increased energy and a cleansed bloodstream, liver and kidneys.

A detox can also be an excellent prelude to a weight management or lifestyle transformation system.

An intensive course of Colon Hydrotherapy (3 treatments in a 2 week period) can really help kick start and compliment a detox diet
