Globesity, the global epidemic of obesity, is emerging in many parts of the world. A common perception is that consuming more calories than we burn is one of the main reasons we gain weight. However, from our extensive clinical experience, it is clear that the combination of a low calorie diet and exercise has limits in promoting and sustaining weight loss.

The real reason we gain weight is because the system that regulates our body weight, appetite and body fat is damaged. In other words, obesity is a “disease” caused by various factors that inhibit the body from regulating appetite and body weight.

An irregular diet, lack of exercise, pollution, and stress all contribute to the reason why toxins accumulate in the body. Toxins weaken the immune system and hinder the organs from functioning properly, which damages the neurotransmitter. This neurotransmitter is responsible for controlling our appetite and hormone secretion so, when damaged, the body’s weight controlling system fails to regulate the accumulation of fat in the body.

The Reset Detox Diet uses natural ingredients to help the body easily secrete waste, support the body’s immune system to naturally heal and, most importantly, normalize the body’s weight control system.

During the process of secreting toxins through the Reset Detox Diet, stagnated and accumulated unnecessary fat and water will be eliminated from the body, thereby normalizing the circulation of Qi (energy). This will improve complexion, adult acne, chronic fatigue, musculoskeletal diseases, hormonal imbalances, and irregular menstrual cycles. The Reset Detox Diet will also normalize metabolic disorders such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, acid reflux, gastritis, gastric ulcers, digestion, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome. Not only will patients lose weight, but they will also improve circulation, promote normal gut function, and boost the immune system all at the same time.
