Why Detoxify?

Detoxification is the process of clearing out the build-up of toxins within our body; these toxins are poisonous to us and over time cause dysfunction and imbalance. Toxins come from our environment, medicines, drugs, pesticides, hormones, heavy metals, food and water.

Detoxification of harmful substances is a continual process in our body; the ability to detoxify and eliminate toxins largely determines an individual's health status. The body eliminates toxins either by directly neutralising them or by excreting them in the urine or faeces (and to a lesser degree via the lungs and the skin). Toxins that the body is unable to excrete build up in the tissues, typically in our fat stores. The liver, kidneys and intestines are the primary organs of detoxification.

There are two phases to detoxification and the integrity of each person's detoxification system is the major determinant of whether chemicals are detoxified or stored in the body.

Phase I

The liver's role in detoxification involves a two-step enzymatic process for the neutralisation of unwanted chemical compounds. These include not only drugs, pesticides and toxins from the gut but also normal body chemicals such as hormones and inflammatory chemicals (e.g. histamine) that would be toxic if allowed to build up.

In order to move to phase II efficiently, enzymes help prepare the body so it's detoxification molecules bind to the toxin and remove it from the system. In order for this chemical process to take place, one must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals.

Phase II

This phase involves a process called conjugation, in which various enzymes in the liver attach small chemicals to the toxin. Conjugation is the process in which a protective compound becomes bound to a toxin. This conjugation reaction either neutralizes the toxin or makes the toxin more easily excreted through the urine or bile.
