When I first came to hear about the concept of “personalised detoxification”, my approach towards detoxes changed and has never been the same since.
The reason I first became involved in helping others with their unique detoxification goals was because there are many one-size-fits-all “cleanses” out there, many of which cause more harm to someone’s health than you can imagine.
After dedicated research and science-based training, understanding how personalised detoxification advice works gave us the opportunity to safely help others with their detox goals.
The science behind personalised detoxification is incredibly extensive and is focused on the individual. There is a great deal to communicate to you about it than what I will have a chance to get down in this document, but please take the time to understand the basics.
If you embark on a personalised detox plan with us, there will be a lot more information that we will be sharing with you – primarily about you. In the meantime, please accept our assurances that reading this will be worth it.
There is a secret that those of us who keep up to date with the latest science know:
When it comes to detoxification, what works for one person, has little to no effect on a second person, and can actually make a third person worse.
Promoters of popular detox diets encounter this scenario at some point: They read something out there and how it was successful in helping people. They put it forward to a client and it works wonderfully, but then when recommending the same protocol to another client, they discover that it fails.
The problem is: many people follow “hear-say” or recommend what worked for them (which may not work for someone else), leaving out the person’s unique situation and detoxification needs. Most of us can relate to this. It is exactly the same experience of the person wanting to quickly lose weight by trying a friend’s crash diet or absurd cleanse, only to find that it is impossible to follow and causes her to binge-eat instead!
It is a tremendous irony that we find ourselves amongst an extraordinary information overload with the internet and social media. However, instead of bringing greater clarity, we find the confusion only deepening.
More books and websites than ever before are available on detox diets and “reset cleanses”. Yet, everywhere we look, we find contradictions. One detox “expert” says one thing; another “expert” says just the opposite.
Information is at our fingertips, but what does it mean in terms of practical application in an individual case?
Where is the framework or the reference point from which sense can be made of the virtually endless stream of seemingly unrelated and contradictory pieces of information?
It is not possible to offer one single detoxification protocol for everyone.
Why? Because everyone’s biochemistry, toxicity risk levels and detoxification capacity are different. Even between people living in the same house, with similar environments!
There is no “universal” detox plan that is right for absolutely everyone. And that’s actually good news. It means that we need to look at the individual and evaluate what works for that individual specifically.
For that reason, scientific research is moving towards a more individualised approach, and the primary application of personalised detoxification has been formulated into specific evaluation systems and proprietary methodologies developed by leading scientists and researchers at The Health Sciences Academy whom we had the privilege to learn from.
To achieve your detox goals, we must first understand your current toxicity risk levels, identify your own physiological and biochemical detoxification detractors, and have a tailored plan that works for (and not against) your body.
I am a Certified Detox Specialist utilising science-based tools made available to my clients through my mobile app or website in order to evaluate detoxification capacity, recognise sources of exogenous or endogenous toxicants and detect symptoms of acute or chronic exposure and provide personalised nutritional and lifestyle strategies to reinforce your body’s detoxification mechanisms.
