Reason #1, Why I detox!
I am often asked what is my number #1 reason, “why I detox”. After all, you are aware I am the Detox Doctor. To answer this question I need you to hear a portion of my life health history. I will get to my answer shortly….but here’s my story.
I don’t have to take you that far into my life, just about 20 years ago when I was a firefighter and an unhealthy individual. I would eat fast food, take medication for my aches and pains, drink copious amounts of coffee, consume a ton of sugar and soaking my body in personal hygiene chemicals. I was being a cool adult, little did I know I was creating the perfect storm for a health disaster.
What was I thinking?!? I was doing what the vast majority of population does day-in day-out. This was normal, this was natural and there was no one who could guide me in a better way.
In a lifetime, our bodies soak up all the junk in processed foods and packaging, the chemicals in the water we drink, the creams we smear on our skin, the cleaning product residue on our countertops, our clothes, our plates, and even the stress of sucky relationships. And that crap radiates through every cell in our body.
You see, the number one reason why I detox is because I was “Sick and Tired” of being sick and tired. I needed immediate action to regain my health back.
Man was I ever tired; I lacked the energy to run my day to day life, let alone have extra energy to socialize and entertain and spend time with my loved ones.
I was managing sickness symptoms, this wasn’t the life I wanted to live. I wasn’t just managing just one annoying symptom, I was juggling 6 issues that were cycling through the body every 2 days. Weight gain, hormones issues and organ imbalances was a reality.
I had to decide how I wanted to live, I knew it was time for me to put out the fires in my own body. In a few short months of becoming a lean, green, detoxing machine, I started seeing amazing health improvements.
My personal health transformation inspired me to lead by experience and back my transformational proof with science. After doing over 70 detoxes in 15 years, you could say I’ve got an addiction to Detoxification. I can show you how to tap into the power of detoxing to unclog your mind, body and spirit.
I love what I do. And even more, I love helping my patients rock their detox so that they can get healthy too. If you’re ready to rock your detox, have a peek at how you can work with me, then let’s start with a free 15 minute detox conversation, book online now.
