Developed by naturopath Dr. Claude Matar, the Detox = Wellness Protocol, or DWP, is a gentle and gradual process designed to give the liver, the body’s only detoxification organ, a very significant healing break so that it can wear its detoxification “hat” perfectly to help heal the body and bring it back to proper balance which translates into better wellness and optimum weight.
The liver has three main detoxification functions:
- Secretion of bile to help get rid of toxins and cholesterol
- Filtering of blood to get rid of toxins
- Breaking down chemicals, like pharmaceutical drugs and pesticides that lodge in the system.
Remember that you need to be healthy to lose weight not the other way around.
The liver needs to be in an excellent working condition in order for the body to achieve optimum health, fitness and weight loss. The healthy body neutralizes chemicals on an ongoing basis (liver detox) which allows then to be then eliminated through the 4 elimination systems of the body, namely: The colon, the skin, the kidneys, and the lungs. Toxins get transported to the liver primarily through the lymphatic circulatory system.
The DWP Process
The DWP is designed to help patients achieve their long-term wellness and weight loss goals. DWP uses natural foods and herbal medicine. Prep time is kept at a minimal level so that you have time to rest whenever needed to help the body heal and the liver to work more effectively on detoxifying the body. All instructions are included in the DWP booklet to help you start the protocol, which is conducted under qualified DWP coach supervision.
This DWP can be extended up to 30-days. Try it for 6 days and if all seems fine, extend it for up to 30 days.
Rule of thumb: The longer the cleanse the better the results.
