Where in Guelph to eat and shop during your Spring Detox!
It is that time of year when the talk of Spring Detoxing is everywhere!
”Detoxification" means the removal of toxins from the body. Human beings absorb toxins every single day through preservatives, pesticides, parabens, stimulants, and heavy metals. These things make their way into our bodies through food, water, cosmetics, cleaning products and simply by the air that we breathe.
Even our own bodies produce toxins on their own, called metabolic waste products. These metabolic waste products are a natural result of metabolic processes like respiration and digestion. Luckily, our bodies are very intelligent and our digestive, endocrine, and circulatory systems come equipped with a complex set of biochemical mechanisms designed to eliminate and flush out these toxins. In ideal conditions we detox through our mouth, skin, colon, urinary tract and breath. The trouble is that too much stress, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods and little to no exercise hinder the body's natural detox function; forcing it into a compromised, suboptimal state.
Some of the simplest ways to strengthen our bodies’ elimination processes are by making better dietary choices, drinking more water, using clean cosmetics and moving our bodies. Your Natural Choice Medical Clinic Naturopathic Doctor can help you to build a Spring Detox plan designed just for you and your specific needs.

Intravenous (IV) Therapy uses high doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and plant extracts that are infused directly into the veins for enhanced absorption.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INTRAVENOUS THERAPY?
IV Therapy can provide:
- A safe and effective way to enhance cellular function, increase energy, boost immunity, and reduce recovery time by delivering nutrients directly to cells.
- Higher concentrations of nutrients than what can be administered orally.
- Fewer gastrointestinal side effects (nausea, diarrhea, cramps etc.) than taking supplements because IV therapy bypasses the stomach and intestines.
Ask Dr. Harmonie Eleveld, our naturopathic doctor and intravenous therapy practitioner if you are a good fit for IV therapy.
Not a patient of Natural Choice Medical Clinic? Ask your naturopath or medical doctor about an IV therapy referral for Natural Choice Medical Clinic.
