Clinical Nutrition – Clinical Nutrition is the cornerstone of good health. Like medicines and drugs, foods affect the way your body functions. Some foods help you heal, while others damage your body and contribute to chronic illness. A healthy diet – consisting of the right balance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, fatty acids, fibre and amino acids – is your body’s primary tool to prevent and recover from illness.
Food Sensitivity – Food sensitivities are delayed reactions to specific foods that are triggered by IgG antibodies. In an IgG reaction, the IgG antibodies attach themselves to the food antigen and create an antibody-antigen complex. These complexes are normally removed by special cells called macrophages. However, if the antigens are present in large numbers and the reactive food is still being consumed, the macrophages can’t remove them quickly enough. The food antigen-antibody complexes accumulate and are deposited in body tissues. Once in tissue, these complexes release inflammation-causing chemicals, which may play a role in numerous diseases and conditions.
Detoxification Programs – This medically supervised detoxification program starts with the removal of factors from diet and lifestyle which pollute the body and then replaces these factors with diet and lifestyle changes which promote the elimination of toxins. Furthermore, herbs and different supplements are then utilized to enhance the functioning of the organs of elimination. In addition, these agents promote the healing of these organs so they may better serve your body in the future. Excessive toxic load in the body can lead to common ailments like fatigue, weight gain, headaches, arthritis, aging and much more. Respect your body by starting your cleanse the right way and take the necessary steps to achieve optimal wellness.
