Picture two white pillowcases.
Through one pillowcase you pour 6 glasses of filtered water and two cups of herbal tea. After one full year of continual use the pillow case will still be clear, virtually clean. Through the other you pour two glasses of water, two cups of tea, 3 cups of coffee, one can of coke or Pepsi and two glasses of juice. After a year of this, the pillow case will become severely stained and clogged. The stain will not be able to be removed unless certain detoxification principles are put into place.
Your body’s organs are also a filter and they too will get clogged. The main filters of the body are in order:- the digestive system, the liver, the immune system and the kidneys. Just like a petrol filter in your car if you do not clean your car’s filter, what do you think will happen? The car will not run properly and eventually stop working. The filters will become clogged with muck. The same happens to your body.
Thus, the goal of any detoxification is to “clear out the filters” and reduce your toxic load.

So, what’s the best way to detox?
With so many detox programs on the market, it’s hard to know which ones are the best. Ideally, it’s most effective if you can actually test your toxicity load before you embark on any detox, firstly to determine how long/intense your specific detox needs to be, and secondly to re-assess toxicity levels after the detox is completed to see how effective the program has been. This is why we incorporate urine testing into every one of our detox programs. Find out more about our Indicans detox urine testing here.
