In this day and age, we are exposed to toxins everywhere we turn. We inhale them in the air, consume them in our foods and even drink them in our water supply. And all that occurs while we are trying to be healthy!

So what are toxins?

Toxins are small molecules, peptides or proteins that are able to cause a certain level of disease or disorder to the body, either by direct contact or by tissue absorption. They prevent the body from functioning correctly as they are capable of interacting with biological macromolecules such as enzymes and cellular receptors.

Your body is designed to continuously strive for a balanced state of equilibrium. Toxins are one of the major contributors which interfere with this, thus resulting in illness and disease.

A regular detox is vitally important to maintain a healthy body and mind.

A detoxing protocol is generally recommended as part of your naturopathic treatment plan, depending on your specific circumstances. Natural medicine is designed to work with your body’s natural algorithms. When there is an overload of toxins, it can slow down and even prevent optimal healing from taking place.

Melanie Wingate can carefully examine the severity of your body’s toxic overload, and cater a detox program designed especially for your individual needs.
