Naturopathic Cleanses

Naturopathic cleansing techniques are a cornerstone of any integrated health care program, using traditional herbal cleanses and nutrients to help support and maintain the normal, healthy function of the major organ systems. Each of the subcategories in this section focus on one or more naturopathic cleanses for the particular organ system that cleanse relates to. Therefore you will find the following general categories here: "Colon Cleanse", otherwise known as the "Bowel Cleanse", "Kidney Cleanse", "Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse", "Para Cleanse", "Heavy Metal" and "Skin" cleanses.

Colon-Bowel Cleanse

Colon-Bowel Cleanse

Constipation and improper elimination of the colon can lead to the deposition of faecal matter on the walls of the colon that may remain for days, weeks or even months. Inflammation and build up of faecal matter can reduce the normal exchange and absorptive functions of the colon, interfering with B-vitamin and mineral absorption and aiding absorption of toxic bacterial by products from the retained decomposing faecal matter. For this reason various health researchers include Colon or Bowel Cleansing as part of their routine health maintenance programs. This category therefore includes the various products necessary to perform their traditional cleanses, including Dr Hulda Clarks Colon or Bowel cleanse, Ed McCabe's "Oxyflush" and a number of Garden of Life's products designed to support healthy digestion and elimination.

Heavy Metal Detox

Heavy Metal Detox

In the modern, post-industrial age we are constantly exposed to environmental toxins including solvents, heavy metals, plastics, dyes and pesticides. Accumulation of these toxins, can lead to less than optimal functioning of the cells and organs of the body. When external toxins or cellular metabolic waste accumulates in the body, some health researchers point to a tendency towards an acidic pH in the body, which may further inhibit the exchange of vital fluids and nutrients, in turn reducing cellular efficiency even further. Under this approach, restoration of normal cellular function is promoted by eating foods that tend to alkalinise the body, followed by cellular detoxification and remineralisation. The contents of this category therefore include a number of supplements used by these researchers to promote the bodys own natural processes for removal of toxic heavy metals and other metabolic waste, including alkalinising green super foods and minerals.

Kidney & Bladder

Kidney & Bladder

A combination of modern day dietary factors, including excessive consumption of phosphates and oxalic acid in tea, coffee and chocolate; imbalanced availability of the minerals calcium and magnesium; and chronic dehydration through insufficient consumption of pure water; may promote the natural deposition of micro-crystals within the kidney tubules. As these micro-crystals develop over time, they may reduce the optimal functioning of the kidney and bladder, resulting in less than optimal elimination of natural metabolic waste and external environmental toxins. So to assist with elimination of these toxins, various traditional herbal cleanses for the kidney and bladder have been brought together within this category as the "Kidney Cleanse". Of the various recipes available, Dr Hulda Clark's Kidney Cleanse recipe is perhaps the best recognised.

Liver & Gallbladder

Liver & Gallbladder

Responsible for hundreds of essential chemical processes, the liver may be considered the body's "factory". It is responsible for processing all food materials, packaging them for distribution to the rest of the body, plus the reprocessing, recycling or disposing of internal metabolic waste and external pollutants. This dependence of the whole body upon the liver for production of energy and waste removal means is the reason why some health researchers place such an emphasis on liver and gallbladder cleansing within their routine health maintenance programs. These traditional cleanses include Andreas Moritz and Dr Hulda Clark's "Liver Cleanse", alongside herbs and nutrients that have been traditionally used to support the liver's natural processes of detoxification.

Para Cleanse

Para Cleanse

The "Para Cleanse" category is not a single cleanse but rather a collection of traditional herbal cleanses, created by various health researchers. Each of these cleanses aim to support the body's immune system maintain homeostatic balance with the micro-organisms we are constantly exposed to. The various cleanses in this category use herbs that have been traditionally consumed for this purpose, alongside probiotic bacteria that are naturally found in the digestive tract where they are believed to aid normal, healthy digestive functions. This category contains the supplements required to perform several well known cleanses, including Dr Hulda Clark's "Para Cleanse", her "Mop up program", and various other digestive cleansing and probiotic products by Garden of Life.

Skin Cleanses

Skin Cleanses

Skin is a permeable protective barrier, constantly sampling your environment to prepare your immune system for any new challenges. As well as taking in substances from your environment (including toxins from chemical personal care products) this permeability allows your body to excrete normal metabolic waste through the skin. In fact, the composition of sweat is very similar to urine. In this sense, the skin has been considered by some to be a "third kidney". For this reason, various health researchers now promote skin cleansing programs to try to assist the body with elimination of these metabolic wastes, by assisting exfoliation and increasing perspiration. Skin cleanses often incorporate high mineral bath salts which may further aid the body by trans-dermal mineral absorption through the skin. Included within this category are Epsom Salt (Magnesium sulphate), Dead Sea Salts, Sodium bicarbonate, French Celtic Grey Sea Salt and Hydrogen Peroxide.
