Everyday, it seems we are bombarded with programmes, diets, drinks and treatments promising a Detox – a buzzword that has become almost synonymous with health and wellbeing.
There’s a good argument why sometimes we just need a thorough cleanse to rid our bodies of all the chemical build-up and toxins that impact everything from our mood to our appetite.
In our polluted world, we are constantly exposed to hundreds of chemicals, either in the air we breathe, the items we touch, or apply to our skin, or the food we eat and drink. A build up of these toxins are a result of the body’s inability to keep up with processing the deluge of nasties it receives on a daily basis, which in turn has a negative effect on our organs and health.
If you’ve suffered, severe fatigue, or continued bacterial infection a detox will certainly help in the killing of parasites and adrenal support.
A couple of fast and effective ways to detoxify the body are with an Infrared Sauna and a Colonic Cleanse.
Detoxify Weight Loss Boost Energy Skin Rejuvenation Pain Relief
Our clever bodies normally eliminate wastes and toxins through multiple ways – the bowel, tears, lungs, kidneys and of course, by sweating. The Infrared Sauna accelerates this process, making it an efficient way to quickly detoxify the body.
By becoming heated in the sauna, the body increases circulation to even the smallest and most inaccessible blood vessels, while overall body heating, triggers our sweat mechanism.
Infrared sauna detoxification can help the body to rid itself of the dangerous toxins that have no other way of being eliminated.
Many stored chemicals in your body, particularly the fat-stored ones, have no quick and safe way for the body to expel them other than through a sweating program in the sauna. The liver and kidneys can’t normally cope with these toxins.
Relaxing in an infrared sauna reduces stress and anxiety as well as speeding up the metabolism. A 30-minute session makes you burn up to 600 calories, and can be used as part of a weight loss program. In addition, benefits include; pain relief, improved immune system, sleep, mood, reduction of anxiety, depression, brain fog, cellulite reduction, skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing benefits. The infrared light allows the skin to rejuvenate itself by building collagen.

Detoxify Boost Energy Anti-Stress Lifts Mood
Feeling tired and sluggish all the time? Struggling with digestive problems? A colon cleanse could be the answer. Also known as colonic hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation, this procedure helps flush out toxins and boosts energy levels. When done regularly, it improves digestion, wards off fatigue, and boosts the immune system.
Believe it or not, the use of water to cleanse tissue throughout the colon, called “colon lavage,” has proven benefits and has been practiced since as early as 1500 B.C. in ancient Egypt.
The colon is home to billions of microflora or bacterial organisms living along the digestive tract that are critical for proper nutrient absorption, maintaining natural PH balance, controlling hunger and counteracting potentially dangerous bacteria. This is why a well-functioning colon is so important for overall wellbeing.
It is estimated that between 15 – 20% of the population are affected by Irritable Bowel Syndrome, while chronic constipation is one of the most widely spread gastro-intestinal complaints. An unhealthy bowel causes sluggishness, irritation, irritability, low energy, brain fog and changes in appetite.
For anyone wanting to feel ‘lighter’ a good flush out can be a Godsend! Removing harmful bacteria and toxins that have often built up over many years can literally change your life, as they have a direct effect impacting on our mood, concentration, focus, stress levels and overall sense of wellbeing.
