Toxins are harmful chemicals and unfortunately they are everywhere; in the air we breathe, water we drink, our food and in personal care, laundry and cleaning products.
Toxins interfere with our cellular chemistry and metabolic rate provoking allergies, asthma, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart and neurological diseases such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease.
The very first step on the road to creating whole health is to remove as many of these toxins from your body by supporting your organs of elimination and where possible to remove as many of them from your immediate environment as possible.
Now Is The Natural Time To Start Your Spring Detox
At the start of spring our body naturally wants to eliminate the toxins that have accumulated over the winter months when we probably were more inactive and possibly over-indulged. Some of the symptoms of this detox process can manifest as colds and flu or aches and pains as the toxins are released from fat stores where they have been hiding.
You can support this natural detox process by eating more organic vegetables and fruits to help flush the toxins away and you can also turn to herbs as a powerful, traditional method of supporting our major detox organ, the liver.
Our VitalDETOX product is used throughout the year to do just that, but spring is the optimal time to thoroughly cleanse your system and support your health this way.
VitalDETOX is made with carefully selected plants grown organically in Italy that support the liver and gallbladder including; Artichoke and Milk Thistle which also raise the level of glutathione, one of the body’s most powerful anti-oxidants.
Glutathione is known to counter the oxidative stress that may lead to a variety of health issues including the metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases mentioned above.
Glutathione: master anti-oxidant
Glutathione is one of the most important substances required for good health. Made from the amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid, it is produced naturally by the liver and is necessary for the smooth running of many physiological processes including tissue building, repair and to ensure a strong immune system.
However, when the level of toxins are high and glutathione levels are low, the immune system malfunctions and a cytokine storm can ensue. It’s no surprise to find that glutathione levels decline with age and low levels are a marker for chronic inflammatory ailments such as arthritis, Alzheimers, diabetes etc.
So if you or someone you know is suffering and believe that taking pharmaceuticals is the only way to find relief, you may want to point them in the direction of this liver cleanse.
A great way to take VitalDETOX for a few weeks is to enjoy it as an aperitif by adding water and lemon juice or adding it to your favourite fruit juice as it’s best taken twice daily before main meals.
Aches & Pains, Arthritis
If arthritis is a problem or you have general aches and pains, we recommend you also try taking Epsom Salt baths to help remove toxins from the joints via the skin while relaxing your muscles at the same time.
The addition of essential oils of Eucalyptus and Juniper in our Eucalyptus Bath Soak stimulates skin blood flow thereby helping to clear unwanted toxins more rapidly. Your aching joints and tendons will thank you later!
A stuffy nose or chest
If respiratory congestion such as a stuffy nose or blocked sinuses is making sleep difficult our Eucalyptus Soother Pillow Spray will quickly help you breath more easily.
It can be sprayed on handkerchiefs too for daytime relief.
A note about the serious condition called Fatty Liver Disease
A fatty liver is one that is congested with fat and it’s very common in overweight people over 30 and those who drink excessively. It is the most common cause of abnormal liver function tests and may lead to more serious liver disease.
Fatty liver disease often presents no obvious symptoms, especially in the beginning, but as the disease advances over a period of years the person may experience chronic fatigue, nausea, confusion and impaired judgement.
A fatty liver can be reversed with VitalDETOX and dietary changes, but recovery will take between 3-6 months.
