Following a practitioner led detox program can be one of the most effective strategies for rapidly improving the state of your health. Why involve your holistic practitioner? Simply put, they can help you design the best detox for you, taking into account your lifestyle, current health challenges and overall health goals. Not only that, but a practitioner is a valuable resource who can check progress and help get you back on course, should the need arise. But more about this later – let’s first discuss the fundamentals of detox.
The Main Features of a Detox Program are:
- Reducing the exposure to toxins through dietary and lifestyle changes
- Removing bad bacteria and waste from your digestive system with a colon cleansing diet
- Rebuilding and renewing your digestive lining, replacing the bad bacteria with healthy ones and improving your digestive function
- Helping your body release toxins more effectively with a liver detox diet
Toxins come in two categories, environmental (external) and endogenous (made in your body). Environmental toxins include things like heavy metals, chemicals, drugs, bacterial and microbial toxins. These are present in the air, water and food that we consume. Endogenous toxins include hormones and other chemicals that are produced in the body and chemicals produced by bacteria in your digestive system that enters the blood stream.
So Why Do I Need to Detox?
Toxins build up in the body over time. Detoxing is designed to aid removal of these toxins from within the body quickly and efficiently with a colon cleansing diet and a liver detox diet. Detoxing has amazing benefits for all who undertake it, but how do you know if you really should detox?
Symptoms and Signs of Toxicity
- Any disease can be made worse by toxicity; however, some of the most common signs and symptoms of too much toxicity in the body include:
- Regular headaches
- Muscle aching and weakness
- Nerve pain or numbness
- Recurrent infections
- Poor short-term memory and concentration
- Sensitivity to environmental chemicals, odours and potentially foods
- Chronic fatigue and lethargy
- Anxiety and/or mood swings
The Two Main Factors That Influence Toxic Load
There are two main factors that influence your body’s toxic load, and the impact this has on your health. The first is the amount and type of toxin exposure. The second relates to your body’s ability to detoxify. Two people with similar toxic exposure can respond very differently to a detox, with one having no noticeable effects and the other developing chronic illness. The first person has a better capacity to detoxify. If you choose to embark on a colon and liver detox diet program with me then you will be given a program designed to address both issues, by reducing your toxic exposure, and also improving your detoxification ability.

Simple 3 Stage Strategy for Safe, Effective and Comprehensive Detoxification
Assessment – We either use pathology lab testing or urinary indicans & heavy metal testing conducted in our consulting rooms to assess dysbiosis (intestinal dysfunction caused by an imbalance in gut bacteria, candida or parasites) & severity of toxicity. This will help indicate the level of detox needed by each individual client.
Stage 1 – Remove or dramatically reduce the level of dysbiotic bacteria, fungi and parasitic organisms that may be present in the gut. Removes waste & toxins being produced by dysbiotic organisms. This is the colon cleansing diet phase.
Stage 2 – Renew – once the dysbiosis has been reduced the aim is to re-inoculate the digestive system with beneficial (probiotic) bacteria and to support the integrity of the gut lining with glutamine and other nutrients. This renews tissue health by helping to clear stored heavy metals and renews and restores the acid/alkaline balance of the body.
Stage 3 – Realease – the final stage of detoxification is designed to enhance the capacity and function of the body’s waste removal systems – predominantly the liver, gall bladder and kidneys. In this stage the focus is on increasing the release of toxins stored in the body, as well as increasing the release of bile to facilitate excretion of waste via the faeces. This is the liver detox diet phase.
Final Assessment – Re-test for dysbiosis & dietary tactics going forward to prevent returning to a state where detox is needed.If you’d like to find out more about our range of detoxing solutions, phone Vibrant Nutrition on 0423 761 247 to speak to Lisa our accredited Nutritionist or book in for a Detox Strategy Session.
