After all the wine and BBQ food, it’s time to be good to yourself.
No one can can blame us for overindulging in the summer months, but there’s no mistaking that feeling when we’ve had too much.
As the nights get longer and temperatures drop, one of the most common enquiries I receive is that of detoxing. The term has been hijacked of late, so what is detoxification?
Detoxification happens in the kidneys, skin, lungs and most importantly the liver. Generally, when people detox they often eliminate alcohol. When alcohol is ingested, metabolic process converts it to acetaldehyde, a very toxic substance damaging to liver cells before changing this into carbon dioxide and water.
With this in mind, removing alcohol from your diet can only be a good thing, especially if your liver struggles to break it down. Genetic testing of your detoxification pathways is the best way to determine whether you have real issues.
DNA And Detox
All that’s required is a quick cheek swab which is then analysed. You’ll receive a full report on your genetic predisposition which can be used to detox effectively.
I recommend this test if you’re often unwell after a lightish evening, when others seem fine. As most drugs are metabolised by the liver, you may also want to consider this option if you have poor response to medical interventions.
There are some foods that do assist liver detoxification, namely, cauliflower, sprouts, broccoli and cabbage. You’ll find some yummy recipes below that incorporate these foods. Eat them slightly steamed for even more nutrients.To find out more about the detox DNA test I offer, click the button below and book a free 15 minute consultation.
