Detoxification refers to the metabolic pathways through which cells transform toxic substances into relatively inert materials that can be readily excreted from the body.
The majority of toxic substances are fat soluble, they have an affinity for and are stored in high fat tissues and organs when not detoxified properly. These fat-soluble toxic substances must be converted to a water-soluble form before they can be eliminated. Detoxification occurs mainly in the liver, via a two-step process referred to as phase 1 and phase 2. Phase 1 transforms toxins into more water-soluble compounds, which are carried through the blood to the kidney for elimination or continue through the liver for further processing. Phase 2 completes the detoxification process and sends the now non-toxic substance to the kidneys or into the bile for excretion.
Impaired liver detoxification refers to decreased phase 1 and/or phase 2 enzyme activity. Phase 1 detoxification rates that are in excess of phase 2 will also cause toxicity problems. This is due to excessive accumulation of “unfinished” intermediate compounds produced by phase 1.
Our detoxification program is a gentle cleansing that supports/stimulates both phase 1 and phase two enzyme activity. The program includes three support meetings, guidelines, and all relevant materials and supplements.
As we enter into warmer weather, spring cleaning comes to mind. We think of cleaning out our homes and our yards. We never think about cleaning out the toxins we accumulate in our own bodies.

It can be fun and you feel results almost immediately on this 21 day supervised program.
