Home' Nova National : NOVA NATIONAL FEBRUARY 2012 Contents as the entire urinary system is cleansed
and freed of ketones, any bacteria and
other toxins. The liver is responsible
for conjugating all hormones so if you
have indulged, or you have experienced
chronic illness, the liver cannot do its
many tasks efficiently. The bowels will be
relieved of toxins such as worms, parasites
and a build up of waste if over eating has
occurred. More restful sleep and greater
ability to withstand external stresses are
other beneficial outcomes.
Remedies to support your adrenals
and nervous system can be incorporated
depending on your individual needs and
lifestyle. If you have experienced stress
over a period of time, these organs will be
under functioning and if you are aiming to
lose weight, you will struggle to succeed.
Stress can and does occur over the festive
season! Some people take on too much
and others party into the wee hours for
Your adrenals will need supporting if
your hormones are out of balance; rather
than focusing on increasing the hormone
that appears to be low, it is better to
improve the whole systemic function
of the body, and detoxification can help
you achieve this result. Often the body's
hormones will readjust, particularly if
the imbalance is due to stress. Again, it is
an individual thing with each person; if a
case is chronic then other supporting
remedies maybe be needed to obtain
the best results. No two people would
be treated the same on a detoxification
regime -- some people have a very low
Detoxification is intended, first and
foremost, to cleanse the body of waste
and rubbish that it no longer needs, right
down to the cellular level. Anyone wishing
to lose weight needs to be aware of this
since crash diets actually put more stress
on your body and encourage a state of
toxicity. The body will naturally adjust to
its 'normal' weight for you if you eat
sensibly and follow a detoxification regime
and exercise! You will feel more energetic
Many medical people do not think
'detoxifying' our system is worth con-
sidering. The attitude is that the body is
quite capable of working for itself and
eliminating toxins that are not required.
Yes, I agree the body is capable of doing
these things, but if we over indulge or
have poor dietary choices, over time
we exhaust the normal capacity of the
respective organs to function efficiently. If
we assist our body with correct diet and
lifestyle choices and appropriate remedies,
we can support our eliminatory channels
to improve their function, and restore
and regenerate the cellular matrix of the
body without any side affects.

Holidays are over and it's time to get back into the usual
routine. Naturopath Lyn Craven advises a safe and
effective detox to boost your energy and vitality.
Have you over indulged over
the festive season? If so, then
you might want to consider a
Detoxing does not necessarily mean
eliminating solid foods -- living off water
and lemon juice is not something I
recommend. Even juice fasting needs to be
taken on board with care and monitored.
Christmas festivities tend to make
many people overindulge in all those rich
foods that are so very tempting! Not to
mention perhaps more alcohol with all
the parties. But if you skimp on exercise
and spend more time socialising and over
eating, you don't just gain weight. Your
entire system becomes slow and sluggish
with the excess dietary consumption
meaning more toxins are floating around
in your blood.
Traditionally, many cultures used to
give their body a "spring clean" at the end
of winter. This revitalised all the cells, and
assisted in regenerating healthy cells in
every tissue/organ and body system. The
same principles apply at any time of the
year when your body is simply overloaded
and you feel tired and sluggish, or wish to
Some well known herbs used in
Western cultures to assist in detoxifying
the system are dandelion, burdock and
sarsaparilla. These herbs cleanse the
blood; in fact the old herbalists referred to
them as "blood cleansers". But to ensure
that all eliminatory systems are working
efficiently and to improve your metabolic
activity, a regime incorporating specific
homoeopathics along with correct herbs
is recommended. This can bring about a
deep cellular level cleansing, but bear in
mind that it will take approximately 120
days to cleanse your body's entire cellular
These remedies, usually only pre-
scribed by practitioners, will also promote
endurance and energy.
When you detoxify your system, you
may initially experience headaches, nausea,
or bowel changes for a couple of days or
so. This is more apparent if your system
is really toxic and sluggish after a long
period of eating incorrectly or ingesting
toxic substances or even drugs. Most
people, though, don't experience any
unpleasant effects and find that when
incorporated into a healthy fresh food diet
consisting primarily of vegetables, salads,
fruit, lentils, beans, a few whole grains, fish
and free-range chickens/eggs they begin
to feel lighter, and can experience more
clarity of mind and mental focus. Energy
levels begin to improve and the immune
system is greatly enhanced. The liver is
freed of all toxicity, which assists greatly
in any cases of fatty liver. If you have
experienced sweet cravings you will find
your taste buds will begin to balance
and your minerals and vitamins will be
absorbed more efficiently which, in turn,
improves your mineral profile -- in this case

Anyone experiencing fluid retention,
especially if a hormonal imbalance is
present, can benefit from a detoxification

more stress on your body and
encourage a state of toxicity.'
