Detox and the Detoxification Diet

The simplest way to understand symptoms and disease integrates Western linear thinking, Chinese medicine and its philosophy of yin and yang, and the naturopathic approach to health and illness.  Problems in the body (and mind) often arise from either deficiency, where we are not acquiring sufficient necessary nutrients to meet our needs and body functions – or congestion, where we are having excessive intake, both from reduced eliminative functions and the over consumption of foods or non-foods substances, such as caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, refined sugar, and secondary chemical compounds that negatively influence the normal functioning of the human body.

People who are nutrient deficient may experience such problems as fatigue, coldness, hair loss, or dry skin, and they need to be nourished with wholesome foods to aid healing.  Congestive problems are more common in Western, industrialised countries mainly due to the “fast food’ mentality that has imbedded itself deeply into our societies norms.  Many of our acute and chronic medical diseases and dilemmas result from the clogging of our tissues and tubes, and the suffocating of our cells and vital energy.  Colds and flu’s, cancer and cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and allergies are all examples of congestive disorders.  These medical problems may be prevented or treated at least in part and often dramatically by embarking on a process of cleansing and detoxification.  Dietary changes’ including more organic fresh fruits, vegetables, clean de-chlorinated water and fewer animal fats & proteins will lead to a rapid elimination of toxins from the body and so mark the beginning of the rejuvenation process.

The following Detox program should be discussed with you holistic healthcare advisor (HHA) first if you are on any medication or have any chronic allergies.

The Detox Diet

Special Guidelines :

  1. Chew your food very well and take enough time when you eat.
  2. Relax a few minutes before and after your meal.
  3. Eat in a comfortable sitting position.
  4. Eat primarily steamed fresh vegetables and some fresh greens.
  5. Take only herbal teas after dinner. NO coffee.
  6. All boiling water for teas and steaming must be filtered and de-chlorinated first.
  7. All drinking water should be distilled or Reverse Osmosis and be at room temperature only.  Try drinking 2-3 lt per day.
  8. No chemical deodorants should be used whilst detoxifying.  However the use of essential oil blends like peppermint, rosemary and juniperberry can be used as a basic ‘pro-odorant’ due to their stimulating effects on the lymphatic system.
