We are bombarded with toxins daily through the food we eat, the environment and medications – it’s time to spring clean your body!
Why a homeopathic detox?
It is no secret that the health of our society is breaking down at an alarming rate. Children and adults alike are getting more sick – autism, eczema, asthma, arthritis, constant infections and cancer, to name a few. All are treated with suppressive medications that never get to the root cause of the illness.
My question is - why? Why are we getting so ill? There must be a reason and I believe the reason is toxic overload, not only from medications and vaccines but also from the food we eat and the water we drink. This along with the many environmental toxins that we are in contact with daily are stripping us of our health and vitality. So, I am very passionate about clearing out the toxins using a very gentle homeopathic detox.
Most people can throw off toxins and have no adverse reactions but for some, they become the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Perhaps you had many years on antibiotics as a child for ear infections, for example, and on top of that many vaccinations, plus steroid inhalers for asthma. Each one of these medications will make your body a little weaker, and in time will cause deteriorating health. More and more medications are needed to cope with the side effects that will eventually kick in. That’s why we are seeing many of the elderly these days having to take many, many medications.
What can I detox?
1. Any medications you have taken, and have consequently, never been well since, or that you have taken over a long period of time. Or, any medications you have taken and have had an adverse reaction to. The adverse reaction can happen quickly, within 24 hours; maybe you had a fever or went down with flu-like symptoms, or, it can happen over a period of a few weeks or months, where the deterioration in health was less noticeable.
Medications that may need detoxing –
- The contraceptive pill
- The morning after pill
- IVF treatment
- Etc etc.
2. Any poisons or toxins you may have been in contact with over a period of time, or even just once. If you experienced an adverse reaction. For example –
- Amalgam fillings
- Heavy metals
- Fire retardant chemicals
- Multiple X-rays or ultrasound examinations etc.
We will look at a timeline of your life/health and your presenting symptoms in detail. It becomes much clearer using this process to identify any toxins that may have been the culprit. Often a clear indicator is found. Sometimes it is not so clear, and maybe the toxin that has caused degradation in your health is not one you may expect e.g. perhaps you bought a new sofa or new carpet and unknowingly you had a reaction to the fire retardants used or volatile plastics that are now used.
Sometimes I see that it is not something that was taken directly e.g. medications that mum took around conception or during pregnancy and now the child is experiencing symptoms.
What is involved?
The first thing to happen is that we meet up or have a Skype session to discuss in detail your life and health, this is where we identify any triggers by looking at a timeline of your health. Then I will decide a course of action individualised to you and your circumstances. This will be different for everyone. I may decide that we need to support your liver and kidneys to help the elimination process, and I will use specific remedies for this alongside the remedy that is chosen for your detox. Also, I will find a constitutional remedy to fit your picture, one that matches all your health needs.
I may also use biochemic tissue salts to aid healing; these are mineral salts and help your body regulate essential minerals in your body and also help your body to fully utilise essentials minerals from the food you eat. This is particularly important in autistic children who may have a very limited diet.
The process for one detox takes 8-10 weeks, but this can be shorter or longer depending on your individual circumstances and how long the toxin has been a problem for you. My aim is to detox you in the gentlest way possible, and this can be achieved with the correct homeopathic remedies. Epsom salt baths are a great way to help the elimination process and these can be bought online or from your local chemist.
We will be in contact weekly throughout the detox and I will have phone in times available for any queries/questions relating to your health.
There can be a reaction to the remedies e.g. increased sweating, looser stools, slight fever. This reaction is to be welcomed and is a good sign that the body is throwing out toxins, and no medications should be taken during this important time. The reaction never lasts long and should be over in a few days. As already stated I am available at certain phone in times to speak to with any concerns and to fully support you throughout.

After an MMR detox of a young boy with symptoms of autism -
“We have seen big improvements when it comes to eye contact and social engagement with us. He’s singing and trying to talk to my mum’s pet budgie. There are more words emerging. He still gets excited occasionally but not as bad as he used to be. Tiptoeing has more or less stopped. Very, very happy parents. Thank you.”
