Detox: How to Support Your Body’s Detox Pathways

With Dr. Kayla Springer, ND

We’ve all seen the articles or ads promoting the next great miracle detox or cleanse. There are lots of products and programs out there, each with their own claims. This has led many to think that detox is just a scam or a fad, which is not the whole truth. “Detox” is a trendy term and can mean different things to different people.
 
The body is well designed to deal with toxic insults, but the sheer volume of our exposure now, combined with poor diet and lifestyle can lead to an overburdened body and under functioning detoxification processes. This can allow toxins to accumulate in our tissues. One person may be able to tolerate more toxic load than another, but eventually the body will lose equilibrium, resulting in various disease processes.
 
Detoxification is the process of getting these toxins out of the body before they can do any damage. In this workshop we will discuss what detox actually means, how are body does it, and how we can support its own process to ultimately lower our toxic load.

Dr. Kayla Springer, ND

My journey into medicine started at a young age. I’ve always felt a calling to become a physician, but within the medical system I saw people becoming sicker and sicker, taking pills to mask side effects from other pills, and I knew there had to be another way. For a while I felt lost – wanting to answer my calling as a healer, but not within the realm of the western medical system. When I was eventually introduced to Naturopathic medicine, I immediately knew I had found my calling. After graduating from Simon Fraser University, I enrolled in the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Program at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC. I am currently registered in BC, and in good standing with the CNPBC, CAND, and BCNA.
