Toxins, toxic chemical substances and weight gain
Toxic chemical substances are unavoidable in the 21st century. From fertilisers, cosmetics, deodorants, hair products, paints, carpets, and household cleaning products, they can all increase the burden of toxins in your body interfering with many aspects of metabolism including disrupting hormone levels, blocking thyroid receptors, stressing liver function, and damaging the mitochondria and their ability to burn calories while contributing to weight gain.
Our approach to weight loss, rather than focussing on calorie restriction and starvation, focusses on optimising the body’s ability to rid itself of toxins. If the body’s detoxification tools aren’t performing properly, waste will build up increasing fat tissue and putting vital organs at risk.
What’s the theory behind?
When the liver is malnourished or feels overwhelmed by environmental pollutants and other toxins, their toxic metabolites may not be bio-transformed into water-soluble substances for further excretion. Instead, they might be kept in the liver's deposits or sent back to the bloodstream, where eventually, they will be stored in fat tissues (belly, brain, fatty organs) increasing the occurrence of adverse health effects.
During weight loss, fat breaks down and toxic residues accumulated in these adipose tissues are discharged and released into the bloodstream. If you undertake a weight loss programme that does not address this fact or does not use a binding agent protocol monitored by a practitioner, you might be putting your health at risk and might find it hard to lose weight.
Taking this fact into account and acknowledging scientific facts, we have created a fully personalised safe weight loss programme that ensures you are in good hands, and most importantly, ensures health complications derived from fast weight loss diets are avoided.
What our clients love the most about our approach is that it allows you to feel pampered with a pleasant detox weight-loss experience that you can practice both from the comfort of your home or while holidaying with us.
How does it work?
During your nutrition consultation we will look into finding the root cause of your weight gain. We will then address what’s preventing you from losing weight with a personalised nutrition plan aimed at nourishing your body efficiently to boost your detoxification pathways.
By creating a flushing, or “vasodilation” effect, we will increase circulation to the skin and other organs like the intestinal tract, and facilitate the breakdown of fat. By choosing the right workout for your body type, we will enhance this movement of blood and release fat-soluble toxins accumulated in adipose tissue and membranes from induced “rebound lipolysis”. The use of chelating agents will bind to toxic chemicals and facilitate excretion out of the body through the GI tract in a safe manner.
Alongside with a restricting daily eating window, the programme will aid with weight loss without exposing you to potential health effects from strict conventional fasting detoxes and rapid weight loss diets.
To ensure optimum results are achieved, the BioAge Weight Loss Programme includes:
Duration: 3 months
1 x Nutritional consultation (online)
1x Pre-detox cleanse preparation
1 x Environmental toxicity load report
1 x Evaluation of liver enzymes (genetic tests available at an extra charge)
1 x Evaluation of a recent blood test to determine your liver and kidney function
1 x Intestinal permeability and oral health assessment
1 x Slimming nutrition plan (3-months duration)
1 x Spa detox circuit therapy (sauna, cold showers and gym are used)
1 x Fitness assessment and workout plan
1 x Final consultation with targeted recommendations for maintenance
We do not supply general dietary supplements and natural toxin-binding agents as you are unique and might need a different prescription, therefore, our approach to supplementing is personal and safe.
