HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2017 is certainly underway! The new year is the perfect time to say goodbye to all those thoughts and patterns that no longer serve us and to prepare our mind, body and spirit for the year ahead. Have you made some resolutions or goals for 2017?
Sometimes the burden of last year can follow us into the new year– old habits that stay around or the consequences of overindulgence in the holiday season can make your resolutions difficult. A general term for this is toxins.
What are toxins?
Put simply, toxins are harmful matter. Toxins can be found externally in our environment, food, cosmetics, water and plastic containers; as well as internally – our body naturally produces toxins as waste matter to a wide variety of metabolic processes. Toxins can also be our behaviours, actions and thoughts. For example – stress, overeating, poor nutrition, drug use and alcohol consumption.
How do toxins affect me?
Your body is naturally equipped with organs and processes to eliminate toxins. However, when we are creating or exposed to too many toxins our body can become inhibited. Our toxic load can become too much for our body and we may become unwell.
Your toxic load has a big influence on your:
- skin appearance
- digestive function
- endocrine system
- mental health and mood
What can I do about my toxic load?
A healthy diet and lifestyle are paramount to avoiding or eliminating toxins as well as improving your body’s coping mechanisms against them. Eating plenty of fresh organic fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of clean water, getting adequate sleep and doing exercise can all help you decrease your toxic load and improve your health.
Sometimes we can be so over burdened with toxins that our bodies need a little more help – that is when your qualified health practitioner comes in! Each individual is unique and as such needs a treatment made just for them; over-the-counter detox products can be ineffective or even harmful so please avoid those.

How does TCM & acupuncture help detoxification?
TCM and acupuncture may be used to assist the removal of toxins, as well as the maintenance and optimisation of organ function. When toxins are removed, Qi flows much better throughout the body.
