Support liver detox of environmental pollutants
There are toxic compounds present in our air, water, food, and many consumer products that we use every day. Because environmental levels are usually low, the effects on our health can be slow to develop. Many toxic chemicals found in our environment are known or suspected to cause serious health problems from long-term exposure, such as cancer and reproductive or birth defects. Increasing levels of toxic exposure can be very subtle and gradual, but over time can have harmful effects.
WHO MIGHT BE EXPOSED TO THESE TOXINS?
- Construction workers
- Furniture refinishers
- Biomedical laboratory workers
- Automobile garage workers
- Gasoline station attendants
- Parking lot attendants
- Freeway commuters
- Office workers
- Copy machine attendants
- Home & industrial cleaners
- Cosmetic and body care users
Your Body Deserves Natural Cleansing
Dr. Mack believes that a poor diet, exposure to chemicals in the atmosphere, and too much body fat have led many people to regress into a state of “internal pollution,” which handicaps your overall health.
There is nothing that Dr. Mack loves more than educating her patients through her safe diet and lifestyle initiatives that she designs to assist in dropping unwanted body fat and releasing harmful toxins from the body. Dr. Mack is always aware of instructing her patients to follow nutrition carefully so that the digestive system won’t be under too much strain. Dr. Mack’s programs usually last 2-4 weeks.
The cleansing program is designed to:
- Repair the GI tract from inflammation damage
- Repair tissues at the cellular level
- Support liver detox of environmental pollutants
Body Cleansing & Detoxification
Cleansing is an important part of maintaining health, slowing the aging process, and preventing diseases, by allowing the body to rid itself of a build-up of toxins. There are many ways of doing this. Ideally, a person should be free of commitments during a cleanse, as much as is possible, because a relaxed person can detoxify more efficiently. Another note of caution, to not ever make yourself “fit” into a cleanse. The cleanse should “fit” you. Take time to experiment to see what regime will best suit your schedule, but also remember that you will need to make room for it no matter how busy you are.
A cleanse can be fast, but it doesn’t have to be. You can eat while cleansing, provided that you use cleansing foods. If you want a specific food list for cleansing, check into any cleansing book and they will list the foods specifically. Generally, it is avoiding heavy foods like red meat, wheat, dairy, fried foods, Soya products, dried fruit, etc. You would eat fresh fruits, fresh veggies, whole grains with the exception of wheat, some chicken or fish, etc. (Some veggies contraindicated when cleansing are tomatoes, potatoes, and the squash family. Dried fruit is usually a no-no too.) Any condiments you use would be very simple like flax oil, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, etc.
The idea is to eat easily digestible foods so as to “free up” the eliminative organs such as the liver, kidney, skin, lungs, colon, and lymphatic system so that they can spend more time detoxifying and less time digesting. (Some of these organs aren’t directly digesting food, but do help in the processing part of digestion). A juicer is also recommended, though a basic cleanse can be done without this.
