The large majority of tea detoxes contain a laxative component, and while sometimes laxatives are necessary and safe, we do not believe that the large majority of individuals should be using a laxative unless directed by a healthcare practitioner. Laxatives can give the user a false sense of temporary weight loss and lead to no real, lasting change.
Prolonged laxative use or laxative abuse can lead to permanently damaged bowels, nutrient deficiencies, physical dependency, as well as a behavioural addiction to laxative use.
When we want quality products with effectively dosed ingredients, we need experts in the field. Naturopathic doctors (ND’s) are just that - they have done physiology and botany, scoured the garden, triple checked the research and hand selected the loose leaf tea and herb combination that really packs a PUNCH.
Think of it this way: When you want your water pipes fixed after throwing a 200 person Halloween kegger and now your toilets don’t work, who do you call? A plumber. When you get caught for a speeding ticket doing 150km in a 60km zone rushing your best friend to a hospital after a gory fist fight with an ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend, who do you call? A lawyer. When you want an effective, delicious herbal detox program tailored to your needs filled with a multitude of potent ingredients, who do you call? A naturopathic doctor.
Most other tea cleanses only offer 1-2 cups/day whereas our program provides 3 cups of tea/day. By increasing your daily intake of the specially formulated teas, you have the proper dose of herbs that work at a therapeutic level as well as increases your total hydration and filtration.
What does that mean you ask? More ingestion of active ingredients = Better results. Forget less is more--in this case, more actually is more.
Why sacrifice taste? Most tea detoxes leave our palate with a less than desired urge to gag. Although not all medicinal herbs taste like cupcakes, we worked long and hard to create a combination of delicately flavoured teas and herbs along side hardworking, less tasty herbs.
The result is a well balanced cup that is a delight to your taste buds as well as your liver! Trust us, this was no easy task--many gag reflexes have been injured in the process so that your vagal nerve will go unharmed.
