Detoxification Clinic

Detoxification

Toxic chemicals pollute our modern lifestyle. They are often found in our food (e.g. pesticides and processing techniques), tap water, medicines and vaccines, transport and factory emissions, household, DIY and cosmetic products, farming, and gardening chemicals to name but a few!

Following their ingestion, inhalation, or absorption by the skin, they can difficult for the body to fully eliminate, and begin to slowly accumulate in our tissues, eventually contributing to organ dysfunction, as they interfere with the body’s normal, healthy processes.

There are many symptoms of heavy metal toxicity. Fatigue/tiredness, irritability, poor memory, ‘brain fog’, poor sleep, lack of concentration are just some of the most common. The symptoms often arise over time and are either due to sluggish detoxification pathways, making it difficult to effectively eliminate toxins, and/or due to heavy exposure, such as in the case of mercury amalgam fillings continually leaking mercury into the bloodstream. In both cases, it is necessary to identify and remove sources of ongoing chemical exposure as well as to provide the body with maximum support to eliminate toxins stored in the tissues.

There are several ways in which we can help our bodies to detoxify from heavy metals. The best known of these include vegetable juicing, fasting, drinking plenty of healthily filtered water, aerobic exercise, salt baths, sweating, and nutritional supplements to support the bowels and liver in particular.

CHILDREN’S DETOX PROGRAMME

The umbilical cord blood of babies has been tested and found to contain over 200 chemicals that shouldn’t be there. Those that can cause harm to the body are known as toxins and can interfere with normal cellular functioning. This can contribute to hormone problems, neurological disorders, gut disorders, autoimmunity, and cancers.

We need to support babies and children as much as possible to eliminate these toxins. They are more vulnerable to the damaging effects as their bodies are still developing.

The programme includes:

  • Consultation with Dr. Anna Forbes to identify toxic exposure, toxicity-related symptoms, hereditary components, and to review lifestyle and environmental factors
  • Hair and Urine Toxic Metal testing
  • Diet and Supplement Protocol to support detoxification pathways and gut health
  • Scientifically-proven herbal remedy programme for effective but gentle heavy metal detoxification*
  • Scenar treatment for further cellular and detoxification support

*other herbal protocols also available as required, e.g. gut repair, adrenal support etc.

In both cases, it is necessary to identify and remove sources of ongoing chemical exposure as well as to provide the body with maximum support to eliminate toxins stored in the tissues.
