Hi, I’m Kathryn Alexander, and I’ve been working in the field of detoxification and dietary healing for 17 years. Essentially, these are self-management programs but they can be fraught with difficulties both for the beginner and the seasoned detoxifier! Hopefully this site will help you self-manage your own program by offering the knowledge and guidance required to make your treatment a success. If you want to know more about me and my work then click here  About the Author 

What is Detoxification?
Detoxification is about cleansing the internal environment so that the body can heal itself. The symptoms of disease only arise when the metabolism of the cell is disrupted, and this is caused by two factors: nutrient deficiency and toxicity. Deficiency and toxicity form a vicious cycle as the one leads to the other; a toxic cell cannot take up, utilize or recycle nutrients so the cycle is perpetuated. We have to address both simultaneously. This can only be done through an organic diet that is potassium-rich and alkaline-forming.  These diets have the capacity to dramatically change the cell’s electrical environment, which forces a flushing out of toxins and a drawing in of potassium and oxygen. Once this occurs, healing takes place. The main thrust of detoxification occurs through diet, and the nature of the diet will determine the cleansing. 
Why should I detox?
The legacy of 50 years exposure to persistent man-made chemicals combined with the denigration of the food chain has increased our susceptibility to chronic degenerative disease and cancer. Reversal can only come about by resolving these primary causes of disease. By releasing the toxic burden of the body and restoring its nutritional status, we can change our internal environment and achieve good health.  Now, more than ever, consumers are expressing a strong desire to make informed decisions relating to their own health and seeking empowerment for self-determination, and the direct message of detoxification and dietary healing will appeal to those who seek a method of holistic healing based on track record.
