Urban Lifestyle as the Main Culprit
Ms. Tunice Cheung, a New-Zealand Registered Dietitian, mentions that in Hong Kong, environmental pollutants, food additives, heavy metal in water, and preservatives in personal care products are most abundant in the city. The lack of adequate exercise and an imbalance diet further weaken the detoxification efficiency of the body. Apart from reducing the use of plastic bags, bottles and disposable utensils, it is also advisable to choose natural and organic personal care products. Chronic exposure to environmental toxins can exhaust body function and increase the burden of bodily detoxification, resulting in metabolic inefficiency.
Restore Health by Intestinal and Liver Detox
Ms. Michelle Sung, an experienced nutritionist, points out that many ladies are having pear shaped body, a consequence of toxin overloaded. These toxins act as fake hormones that boost the estrogen level in body, leading to menstrual disorders and local fat deposition. She suggests a 4R tactics to detoxify gut and liver – Remove pathogens and food allergens; Replace with digestive enzymes; Re-inoculate with probiotics and Regenerate gut lining with nutrients.
