The Liver’s Role in Detox – How It Handles Toxins

December 17, 2017
liver

The root of the word liver is, in fact, live. This is no wonder considering the importance of the work it does for us. In the liver, toxins get their chemical makeup altered so we can eliminate them. The liver acts as a bodyguard, identifying bad guys and disarming them. This process, called detoxification, happens only in the liver. Detox has two phases. Both depend on nutrients. Phase I, oxidation, uses over 100 special enzymes. It turns toxins into either water-soluble molecules that can be excreted…

How do we continue these great feelings of health and vitality in normal…

flor-essence

Flor-Essence® (CA/US) and Essiac®: two herbal cleanse formulas that are often referred to synonymously but in fact are made by different companies and are entirely different formulas.

Back in 1922, the Canadian nurse, Rene Caisse, was given the names of eight different herbs by a woman…

How to make your detox less miserable

January 8, 2017
detox

“I think I need to detox” is a popular statement I hear at this time of the year. With all of the extra alcohol and delicious treats we may indulge in, we can start to feel the need to do some inner deep cleaning. Or at least I do.
