Detoxification on All Levels With De-tox Support©

Lemon water

Detoxification involves a series of natural processes that keep our bodies functioning well. When the body's detoxification pathways become overloaded, we may begin to feel lethargic, groggy and generally unwell. If left unattended, a range of different health problems can result from the body's detoxification processes not functioning as they should.

Diets high in processed foods, excessive intake of alcohol, stimulants and medications, pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals and other environmental toxins contribute significantly to the problem as our detoxification systems become overwhelmed with the added workload. Eventually our body can no longer keep up with the demands being made on normal detoxification and elimination processes and our health and wellbeing suffers as a result.

There are many different types of 'detoxes' we can undertake for a variety of different outcomes. What is fundamental to any type of detoxification program is the need to give our body more of those things that support health and wellbeing and less of those things that don't. Finding a detoxification program that supports each individual's requirements at a given point in time is important as each of our needs are unique. What works well for one person may not necessarily be suitable for another.

There is more to detoxification than just giving the physical body a good old clean out.


Detoxifying ourselves at an energetic level is also essential if we wish to experience increased vitality and live a vibrant and healthy life.

It is common for many people to experience more than just physical symptoms (headaches, tiredness etc.) when undertaking a detox program. Feelings of anger, grief, pain, hurt, trauma etc. that have become lodged at an energetic level have an effect on our physiological responses as well as our psychological health.

During a detox, as we release physical toxins and 'junk' from our body, we also inevitably release energetic 'junk' from unresolved emotions and trauma that have accumulated in our cells and clogged our energy bodies. Undertaking a detox can therefore be quite a cathartic experience for people as layers and layers of physical and metaphysical toxins are released and space is made to allow new energies to enter and restore our being to its natural perfect state.

As always, we have the power of nature to support us through a detox to allow release and renewal to occur at all levels of our being.

First Light Flower Essences De-Tox Support© from the Life Management Combination Essences is an excellent companion to have when undertaking any type of detoxification program. This special blend of essences helps to clear and release energetic patterns that are no longer serving us.

Flowers of Transformation Essence No 22 Manuka is the ‘purification’ essence that supports us at a personality level to cleanse, purify and eliminate old energies. No 22 Manuka works at a deep level to help release old pain in order for it to be transmuted so we can move on from the past.

Plant essence No 75 Whau is another great detox ally. Use No 75 Whau when making a break from past patterns, behaviours and ways of being. No 75 Whau helps us to embrace letting go of that which is no longer serving us in order to make space for powerful regenerative forces to enter our lives.

Add 3 drops of each essence from the stock bottle to a glass of water and sip throughout the day.
