Discover Two Simple, Yet Powerful Steps For Lasting Health!

Key Points
Your Body At A Glance - Your body is made up of cells that band together to create tissues. Tissues group together to make organs and glands, and organs and glands group together to make up the systems of the body!
Root Cause of Illness – Inflammation and poor digestion are culprits behind many unwanted symptoms, illness and aging. The good news is, you can heal both!
Balance is Critical - For overall health, Rejuvenating your body is just as important as Detoxification.
The PureBalance Method for Health & Healing helps nourish, restore, balance and detoxify your body right down to the cellular level.

Want to know how to achieve your best health, so you can feel fabulous again?

The PureBalance Method (PBM) is a complete system for healing that goes beyond physical detoxification. We help you create balance through two simple, yet critical steps: (1) targeted detoxification that rids your body of toxins (2) system restoration that rejuvenates your organs and glands, bringing the systems of your body into balance.

Discover PureBalance's Two Simple, Yet Powerful Steps For Lasting Health:

1) Targeted Detoxification Therapy (TDT)

PureBalance focuses on detoxification at the mind, body and spirit level. To find out why this is so important and why it sets PureBalance above other detoxification programs, read: Scientific Evidence: The Mind, Body, Spirit Connection & Your Health.

Focus: Detoxify Your Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Levels For True Well Being

  • Open Your Body’s Detoxification Pathways– Many people are exposed to toxins from their food, air and water. Your body’s detoxification pathways are the highways through which the toxins move out of your body.  The 5 major detox pathways are: your skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and intestines.
  • Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Detoxification– Often during detoxification the body will release stored emotion. Have you ever felt angry or depressed 2-3 days after you eliminate unhealthy foods from your diet completely? Have you ever experienced or observed in a friend or colleague the emotional release on day 3 of quitting coffee? Chinese medicine teaches us that our organs and glands not only become congested with physical waste, but also our repressed emotions. The release of these emotional toxins is a natural part of the cleansing process. However, most detox programs do not support you in allowing this holistic process to take place effectively. At PureBalance, our protocol is designed to help you heal on all levels – mind, body and spirit -- for lasting health and well-being.

PureBalance Detoxification Protocol:

Bottom Line: Your body cannot heal if your detoxification pathways are blocked. Furthermore, your emotional and spiritual health play a key role in your physical health. Detoxifying at the mind, body and spirit level can help create lasting health.

2) System Restoration Program (SRP)

The missing link in most detoxification programs, this is the component that nourishes your organs, glands, tissues and cells, so that your body can regenerate and heal. Most detox programs fall short in that they only assist in the elimination of waste.  System restoration occurs when the organs and glands are built back up after the sludge has been eliminated.  This requires whole food nutrition and a supplement program that alkalizes your body, corrects all digestive weaknesses, and controls inflammation, thereby bringing system balance.

Focus: Heal the Root Cause of All Illness
  • Heal Your Digestion -Your body needs nutrients to work effectively.
    • The first step in PureBalance’s Health Restoration program is to reintroduce your body to real food. 
    • A whole foods diet reintroduces your body to superior nutrition that nourishes every cell. But in order to take advantage of the nutrients your body needs for health, you must be able to digest them.
    • Research shows that over 62% of people suffer from some type of digestive illness and a higher percentage suffer from poor digestive health. [1]

Symptoms of poor digestive health can include:

  • Heartburn and GERD
  • IBS
  • Abdominal pain
  • Addiction
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Arthritis
  • Autism and ADD
  • Auto-immune diseases
  • Bad breath
  • Candida
  • Celiac disease
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chron’s disease and colitis
  • Constipation
  • Cravings
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Eating disorders
  • Hepatitis
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • MS
  • Migraines
  • Mood problems
  • Poor immunity
  • Thyroid problems
  • Ulcers
  • Weight gain and obesity

  • Reduce Inflammation – Most experts agree that inflammation is at the root of all disease. Evidence already shows that heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, early aging and arthritis are linked to chronic inflammation. [2] Every symptom you are experiencing has inflammation at its root.
  • Hormone Balance – Since hormones play a role in almost every function of your body, an imbalance in your hormones can cause a wide range of symptoms. Hormone balance is critical if you want to feel good, look good and have great energy.

Bottom Line: If you want to feel your best, stay healthy and look young, you must heal heal your digestion, reduce inflammation and balance your hormones.

PureBalance System Restoration Program Protocols: PureBalance provides assessments, support, healthy eating nutritional plan and the best natural health products to give your body the extra support it needs to build and restore optimal health.

Mind, Body, Spirit

Scientific Evidence: The Mind, Body, Spirit Connection & Your Health

Scientific Evidence of the Mind, Body, Spirit Connection & Your Health:

Research over the last several decades demonstrates the fact that you cannot separate the mind, body and spirit in health and healing.

The truth is your body was designed to be healthy. True health means that you are healthy physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When all 3 parts are equal and balanced you not only feel good but your life is happier and more complete!

Most healing programs work at the level of the body, forgetting the importance of your mind and spirit. This is why you may find yourself searching out multiple practitioners to support your journey to well-being.

At PureBalance Natural Health, our PureBalance Method (PBM) takes into account your whole healing process – mind, body and spirit.

Our natural health center services provide the full range of holistic health services, but don’t worry if you can’t come to see us at our health center.  Our site is designed to support you on your healing path. You will find questionnaires and articles to guide you to the appropriate lifestyle modifications, botanical remedies, and nutritional products that support your best health.

Science and The Mind-Body-Spirit Connection to Health:

Studies in the field of psychoneuroimmunology are demonstrating the effects of the mind and spirit in healing the body.

Placebo effect – In clinical trials, people who got the “sugar pill” or fake drug got better just because they believed they would. [1]

Attitude and cancer – Dr. H. Steven Greer conducted several studies, including a study with a 15-year follow up on women with breast cancer, and found evidence that attitude is linked to duration and survival of cancer. [2,3]

Your beliefs affect your health, including your genes – Dr. Bruce Lipton, internationally recognized biologist and article of The Biology of Belief , is a leader in teaching about the science of epigenetics. His scientific experiments prove that your perception or beliefs, affect your health. His studies show that even if you have a gene for a certain disease, it is your beliefs that can turn that genetic issue off or on. To learn more, read The Biology of Belief.

The PureBalance Method For Health & Healing

Your body is a self healing organism that is not programmed to be sick. Your body was designed to be healthy. Sometimes the absence of disease is mistakenly referred to as being healthy.

Why is it that so many people suffer from fatigue, depression and/or anxiety? What about all the people who complain of feeling bloated, gassy, constipated, or just plain sick? Too many people are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. What do you do when you don’t have a disease, but YOU know you don’t feel well?

Natural Health or Conventional Medicine?

Many people who feel this way struggle with either taking prescription or over the counter medications or taking the natural health route. If you have come to this site you likely value holistic health. You may have experienced the profound power of the human body when it comes to health and healing, heard from a friend about the virtues of natural medicine, or you just might be sick of nothing working to this point. Whatever your reason for being here we are happy to have you! So what is the first step?

Is It Time to Detox?

These days, popular beliefs will suggest that you jump right into a detoxification program. In a way, it makes sense, right? Just remove the toxic burden from our body and everything will be better...but there's a right time and a wrong time to embark on a detox program.

When Detoxification is NOT the Answer

First of all, it's important to assess your current state of health before jumping into a detoxification program. While we applaud the more natural detox programs that are popping up today, the vast majority of them are "one size fits all". In reality these programs are designed for and most effective for people who are already pretty healthy. If you are experiencing illness, fatigue or unwanted symptoms or if your organs aren’t strong enough, detoxing by itself could actually do more harm than good. In essence, you'd end up feeling worse and taking a step backwards in your quest for health.

PureBalance goes beyond other detoxification programs because we combine detoxification therapy with a system restoration program designed to restore your optimal health. In essence, we make sure your body is strong so that detoxification can happen in a healthy way. At the same time we make sure your body has the building blocks it needs to repair and rejuvenate. Most detox programs leave off this important second step.

PureBalance Health Restoration and Detoxification Program

The PureBalance Method (PBM) is a unique, powerful, yet gentle program designed to bring your body into balance, while supporting detoxification at the mind, body and spirit level.

Most other healing and detoxification programs forget that detox alone can often take the body out of balance, therefore depleting your energy and sometimes even doing more harm than good.

With decades of holistic health experience, Dr. Tom Bayne and Dr. Ingrid Maes created a health and healing program that supports you in feeling your best.

PureBalance Incorporates Two Simple, Yet Powerful Steps For Lasting Health:

1) System Restoration Program (SRP)

This is the missing link in most detoxification programs. As the organs of your body dump their stored toxins (detox) there is a primary need in the body to alkalize the system, hydrate the tissues, and control the inflammatory process. The steps in the health restoration portion of our program will do this by providing whole food nutritionals that support the digestive process and bring the systems of your body into balance.

2) Targeted Detoxification Therapy (TDT)

Many detoxification programs focus only on one organ, like the liver or large intestine. PureBalance has a unique detoxification program that goes beyond other programs because it helps you detoxify at the physical, emotional and spiritual level. This is the true definition of detoxification.
