What is Detox?
A process by which our body gets rid of all types of toxins that our body is exposed to.
Even though traditionally the word Detox has been used for medically removing toxins from our body for overdose of specific harmful substances, the benefit of detox have been established for many centuries.
Detox in one form or another has been practiced for many years in many religious and cultural groups for a long time.
The basics always being: To get rid of toxins to keep the body healthy and functioning.
The body is inherently built to remove the waste from body on daily and at regular intervals, still toxins acn build up in body and need regular treatments. Detox is a key component to medical weight loss.
Who Should do Detox?
Everyone is a candidate to do DETOX.

Chronic: Recurrent headaches
General malaise: Unexplained
Chronic pain: And taking many pain medications Chronic fatigue syndrome
Recurrent infections: Upper respiratory, UTI or any other Gaining weight

What Exactly is the Process of Detox in the Body?
Detox in the body has 2 distinct phases.
PHASE I: Detoxification through Liver.
PHASE II: Detoxification through Kidney.
Final Excretion through GI and Urinary Tract
How Does it Work?
There are definitely specifically enzymes involved called P450 involved in phase I through Liver. There are many cofactors and co enymes involved in the phase I and phase II Detox process from Liver and Kidney.
In this DETOX process, all high quality enzymes are protein and higher protein diets have been shown to increase the activity of these enzymes while chronic high-carbohydrate intake may have the opposite effect.
Amino Acids that are building blocks for the proteins and enzymes are all supplied for the very crucial process of detoxification.
More than ever before in past 30-40 years, due to rapid industrialization, increased and easy transportation causing increased world wide mobility, cross religious and cross cultural ways of life we are more than ever exposed to Novel types of toxins on a daily basis.
How do we get Toxins get in to our body?
Our Body gets toxins from 1 of the 3 main ways
By mouth: Other Living organisms, From ground non living organisms, pesticides, herbicides, colors , chemicals for preservatives etc.
From Air: Inhaled from environment, inhaled from recreational use smoking, recreational activities, pollen
Locally on skin: from various creams, lotions and potions. Recreational tattoos etc.
I Eat Clean Washed Food And Do Not Indulge In Any Recreational Activities: Do I need to do Detox? Am I Still At Risk Of Ingested Or Inhaled Toxins?
Yes You can still be exposed to Toxins as they are embedded in our everyday food drinks and air around you. Many Persistent organic pollutants (POP) are definitely more in the air today than ever before. These are the industrial pollutants herbicides, pesticides,chemicals that enter body from food water and air. These toxins when trapped inside body cells over time can interfere with your healthy immune system functioning. The Detox system supports the body’s natural tow-phase process of detoxification, allowing toxins to be safe and effectively cleansed from the body.
