We live in an environment with many toxins and when we don't pay attention to our diets and lifestyles, toxins accumulate in the body. A history of smoking or alcohol/drug abuse can further build up toxins. Even if you have led a healthy lifestyle you may have had stress. Stress weakens the body's ability to remove regular waste, free radicals generated from burning calories. If the waste is not removed efficiently there can be long term damage, such as aging of skin, pain, arthritis, body aches, diabetes, and other age related health problems.

If you lead a relatively healthy lifestyle, you may only need to carry out detox programs once or twice a year. If you have suffered from smoking, alcohol, or drug abuse, it may take one to three months of detox depending on the case. Once the detox is finished, if there are other stresses, the individual may need to go through maintenance session. During stressful time periods, intensive treatment may be required.
Every person is an individual and will require different types of programs. Here at HolliBalance Well-Being Center we make sure that you, as a unique individual, get what you need.

After you have finished a period of cleanse/detox you must continue to be aware of your lifestyle. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, then future cleanse/detox programs only have to be practiced when you feel necessary. However, if you have new health concerns you may need to start another intense program. It is always better to do an early prevention program regularly once or twice a year.
