Dangers of D.I.Y Detox…

Detox Safely with Coastal Chiropractic and Wellbeing Gold CoastAlthough our bodies are designed to process and remove toxins, we can have a toxin burden where pathways of the body become compromised.  This build up of toxins is due to dietary allergens such as gluten, food additives, dairy and eggs, bacteria, parasites or due to fungal overgrowth and of course toxins in our environment found around our home, at work, air pollution, pesticides in our food as well as lifestyle choices can all contribute to this toxic load overworking our systems and throwing them out of balance.

With a thorough examination here at Coastal Chiropractic and Wellbeing, we can see which body systems are the top priority for detoxification.  This includes the gut, liver and looking for traces of  heavy metals that are stored in our brains and in our body.  Heavy metal overload is common among plumbers, welders, miners, renovators, people who have a lot of fish in their diet or have mercury fillings.

A “Healing Crisis” or more commonly known as feeling like absolute crap while in detox is a sign that you are not detoxifying healthfully. This unhealthy process shows that you may just be “recycling” the toxins from the liver back into an unhealthy gut then back to the liver.  This process creates a danger not only to how we feel now but also to our long-term health, putting unnecessary stress and strain on our vital organs.

This is why it is ESSENTIAL to detoxify with the help of a practitioner who specializes in this field.  Here at Coastal Chiropractic and Wellbeing not only do we take the guess work out of the detoxification process we can SAFELY find a detox program especially designed for your body and your unique health requirements.  We will delve deeply into your everyday lifestyle and help you make healthy and well-informed lifestyle choices to prevent future damage – and you will be surprised to know that the detoxification process doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to give up anything!!  We look at the big picture to help detoxify you, your family and your environment.

How Applied Kinesiology can treat Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is described as pain felt in muscles with sleep disorders, fatigue, headaches, lack of clarity and possible bowel dysfunction. If you google the term you’ll find there are no specific treatments for this debilitating condition, but we say RUBBISH!

Fibromyalgia is an example of a chronic condition which can only really be treated multi dimensionally. There is a clear physical component, misalignments of the spine irritating nerves creating muscular aches and pain. The chemical component is addressed in three phases, the first line of defense is to decrease pain then to address the cause, and Applied Kinesiology can pinpoint exactly what nutrients and herbs will be effective for you.

Your fibromyalgia is not the same as the textbook so why treat yourself in such a way? Chemically we test for Magnesium deficiency, toxic loads, adrenal fatigue, anxiety, food sensitivities, bowel dysfunction, and energy production within the mitochondria of the cell.

Lastly fibromyalgia is a chronic condition, so there will also be an emotional component. NET (neuro emotional technique) can identify the stress and where it is coming from in your life. It’s not psychology, it’s the direct removal using the technique of the stress from your body. The philosophy stays the same, removal of the interference which is stopping your individual body repairing and functioning optimally.

Wellness is vital in fibromyalgia, and we can give you tools to be willing to respect your mind and body with education. Because when you are willing – anything is possible!
