Is it Safe to Detox?

Feb 6th, 2012 Posted in Acid Reflux, acne, adult acne, allergies, alternative medicine, Detoxification, Digestive blogs, health, Nutrition, Uncategorized, vitamins, weight loss, Whole food vitamins, women's health | Comments Off on Is it Safe to Detox?

A number of people have asked me over the years if it is safe to detox. It really does depend on the type of detox protocol that is used and for how long. I always recommend a detoxification protocol that addresses all the internal organs such as the liver, lungs, digestive tract, kidneys and skin. A detox protocol should be gentle, yet effective at cleansing these organs. I do not recommend detoxes specific to only one organ system as you can do more harm than good in this case.

For example, if you choose to do a liver cleanse and your bowels are not eliminating properly, you can run into difficulties because the toxins are being flushed out of the liver and into an organ system that is not efficient. This can be a dangerous situation and is not recommended.

I developed the VitaDetox for VitaTree Nutritionals to eliminate toxins from all the internal at once, to avoid the problem of shifting toxins to an organ that may not be ready to eliminate them. VitaDetox is a formulation that minimizes any of the negative side effects of doing the detox in the first place due to this reason, that it is working on all the organs at once. It is also revolutionary in that it contains whole food anti-oxidants, VitaFruits and VitaVeggies to help quench free radicals during the detox process. This is why VitaDetox works so well and so quickly, without any side effects like diarrhea, gas or cramping.

You need to detox if you have any of the following concerns:

-overweight
-gas, bloating
-headaches
-eczema, psoriasis, acne
-PMS, menopausal symptoms
-constipation, diarrhea
-frequent colds/flues
-polycystic ovaries, endometriosis
-depression
-fatigue
-difficulty conceiving
-hair loss
-and much more!

Mercury in Fish is Toxic!

We have all been told to eat less red meat and more fish because fish is much healthier for us. Unfortunately, fish is quite toxic and is often high in mercury, a heavy metal. Heavy metals such as mercury damage our cells and especially our digestive tract, liver, kidneys and brain. So how do we get the benefits of fish oils, the omega 3 fatty acids, without having to worry about the mercury and other toxins in fish? The answer is by taking a high quality, pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplement that is third party tested to be free from contaminants such as mercury, dioxins and PCB’s. You must also make sure that your fish oil supplement is not diluted with less expensive oils such as soybean oil. This only dilutes the efficacy of the fish oil. Your fish oil must also be higher in DHA as compared to EPA. DHA is the essential nutrient for your brain and nervous system that helps with memory and cognitive function. For more information on Fish oils, see VitaFish Oil, (*the only pharmaceutical grade fish oil without fillers and higher in DHA ) and how to detoxify the body, mind and spirit, read The Healthy Millionaire.

Human Probiotics the Best

Probiotics are a buzzword these days in the news and on television programs. Probiotics are good bacteria that naturally inhabit the gut. They are essential to our being and over 400 different species of probiotics live within our digestive tracts. Probiotics can be found in yogurt and in probiotic supplements. What most people do not realize is that the probiotics found in most yogurts and supplements are not humanly derived microflora. Often these bacteria are from soil organisms and cow bacteria. It really only makes sense to colonize a human digestive tract with human microflora. Probiotics are helpful if you suffer from chronic sinus infections, yeast infections, candida and allergies.

Do you worry about cancer? Does the very word scare you? You are not alone. Cancer is the most feared disease among North Americans. My whole view on cancer is the more you think about it and fear it, the closer you are to manifesting it yourself! Do not get caught up in the fear of cancer. Yes it is good to be proactive and to live a healthy life, meaning doing regular detoxification, eating a whole food diet and taking only whole food vitamins. However, the mental toxins we carry around in our heads all day are 50 to 100 times more toxic than any physical or environmental toxin. Emotional toxins such as anger, fear and resentment eat away at our cells and can and do lead to diseases such as cancer. Do not become overly aware of cancer signs and symptoms. If you do not already have some of these symptoms, you can surely manifest them and think you have cancer. Some of my patients tell me they rather not always watch shows such as Dr. Oz because it makes them think they have every disease that they talk about! A classic case of becoming a hypochondriac.

Allergies Getting You Down- Natural Solutions

Watch VitaDetox Video

Seasonal allergies are now plaguing many of us as spring has sprung. Our immune systems may be overwhelmed from the toxic load in our body, and this is one of the reasons we develop allergies as we age. If we have not done regular detox over the years, the toxins build up in our internal organs. This then causes an inflammatory response and ignites the immune system . The immune system then becomes hypersensitive and reacts to things such as pollens, grasses and dust mites. One way to decrease the toxic load is to make sure that you do regular detoxification. See VitaDetox from VitaTree Nutritionals. To decrease the hypersensitivity of the immune system, it is important to use a good probiotic from human microflora everyday. Get rid of dust mites in your home by vacuuming regularly and changing your pillow. For more information on detoxification read The Healthy Millionaire.

How do you know if your supplements are what they say they are on the label?

Chronic Sinus Infections-Natural Cures

Apr 28th, 2010 Posted in allergies, alternative medicine, childhood illnesses, Detoxification, Digestive blogs, headaches, migraine, natural weight loss, Naturopathic, Nutrition, tension headaches, Uncategorized, vitamins, weight loss, Whole food vitamins | Comments Off on Chronic Sinus Infections-Natural Cures

Chronic sinus infections are usually caused by a fungal problem, not necessarily a bacterial issue. The way this problem starts is you have a cold or flu originally, and you do not heal completely from it, you are usually given anti-biotics to kill off any bacteria that are in the body. A few months later, you are sick again, this time with a sinus infection. You are given anti-biotics again, it is seeming cleared in a couple weeks, and then a few months down the road, another sinus infection, you are given another anti-biotic and so on and so on and so on…… Sound familiar? Unfortunately I have seen this scenario enough times in my practice as a naturopathic doctor to see a pattern. The original infection may be bacterial, but the anti-biotic given usually knocks off any of the good bacteria in the body that would prevent the fungal issue from causing the resultant sinus infections. The subsequent anti-biotics only propagate the fungal infections and this is why these sinus infections will never go away! Thankfully there are natural solutions. Probiotics are step one! You need to re-colonize the system with high quality human microflora to improve the immune function as well. See vitatree.ca and click on Probiotics for more information. Step two is of course staying away from the generic anti-biotics. Step three, use saline nasal mist daily to cleanse the sinuses locally.

Three Natural Tips for Allergies

Apr 27th, 2010 Posted in allergies, alternative medicine, childhood illnesses, Detoxification, Digestive blogs, headaches, natural weight loss, Naturopathic, Nutrition, Uncategorized, vitamins, weight loss, Whole food vitamins | Comments Off on Three Natural Tips for Allergies

Allergy season is upon us. Spring pollens have sprung about 3 weeks earlier this season and many of us are suffering already. What is the natural solution? Detoxification and Probiotics! Detoxification of the major internal organs is necessary to alleviate the toxic load on the body and to allow the immune system to not over-react to common allergens such as pollens and grasses. Probiotics are essential to moderate the immune system, 80% of which is in the digestive tract. Probiotics are good bacteria that should naturally inhabit our digestive system. Unfortunately, most of us lack enough of these good bacteria, especially if we are stressed or have taken anti-biotics or synthetic hormones. Three natural tips for allergy sufferers are:
1. Eat whole foods, exercise and drink plenty of good quality water from a glass container.
2. Detoxify at allergy season, especially spring and fall. See VitaDetox at www.vitatree.ca
3. Take Probiotics everyday, even when it’s not allergy season. This will ensure a healthy immune system and decrease allergy symptoms. VitaTree Probiotics, Canada’s only human strain probiotic without synthetic fillers!
