A primary component of getting the body to function optimally is making sure that the body can detox properly. With the amount of toxins coming from our environment, food, and homes, most people are not able to detoxify well. This can show up as low energy, irritability, any number of digestive problems, allergies, skin rashes, aches & pains, mental fogginess, weight gain, and many other complaints.
People often tell me about their 3 day juice cleanses. While people feel good when they do these, it's not long enough for most of us to detox very much.
I recommend a longer program that emphasizes good nutrition, exercise, clean living, and supplements to help enhance detoxification. While many people lose weight on this program, and it is a great way to jump start weight loss, the primary focus is on detoxification of the whole body. The diet I recommend is a type of whole foods diet. Supplements include herbs to detox colon, liver, gallbladder, kidneys, and the blood.
