Boosting the Body’s Detoxifying Process
The body naturally detoxifies if you feed it the correct nutrients and leave out harmful foods or food products, drinks or other additives that interfere with it’s natural ability to detoxify. Because each individual responds differently to many foods, this is different for each person. Not everyone is intolerant to wheat or gluten, but some people are and the same goes for dairy, preservatives and additives like MSG, or even naturally occurring chemicals such as salicylates or amines. Some people benefit greatly by ingesting sulphur containing foods to assist in detoxification, yet other people cannot tolerate them.
This is why an individual diet programme is so important.
Learn which foods, herbs and supplements assist your own body in detoxification, and which foods and drinks interfere with this delicate balance.
This is how wellness, vitality and energy are restored. It’s a different programme for every individual.
