How To Do a Detox

To be completely effective, a detox program has to address both internal and external toxins. We obviously need to deal with the toxins we eat, drink, breath and put on our bodies. But, its just as important to address the internal toxicity created by the body as it performs its normal everyday functions. These biochemical, cellular, and bodily activities generate substances that need to be neutralized and or eliminated, as do the external toxins.

A comprehensive detox program must supply the appropriate nutrients to do this and should include nutrients specifically to support the 2 most important detoxification organ systems, the liver and gastro-intestinal tract.

Although there are additional ways to boost a detox, these should be the key components of any detox.

Decrease The Number Of Toxins Going In
Limit external toxins by decreasing or removing the amount of irritants that we put into our bodies. This means eliminating the foods that often cause sensitivities or reactions, like gluten and dairy, irritants to the gut like alcohol and caffeine and sugar and all processed foods that also trigger inflammation. For a complete list of foods I recommend you can and cannot eat while detoxing please check out my REMOVE DIET.

Does anyone know of a place where i could go for a 2 week detox ... I have tried all the over the counter detox, through nutritionist ... I spend so much money that I rather just go somewhere do it right, and not buy a new product every few weeks.. or pay for a nutritionist 400 who knows little about nutrition ... (sorry... but I have been reading ... so give me some credit when I come into your office that I know something.. and of course they want you to buy their product.. for hundreds of $$$) I mean 400 for one our of talk about everything I've read.. and then recomendation of an author I can't stand ... "but his book is so amazing" "Glad you Like it!" "I'm that I'm I read it, and I hate it it" .. I don't even know if they have an MD but that's not important.. all they need to know is about healthy eating... they need to know more than I do... I'm tired of throwing money away... if someone knows a place where I can go ... and have the detox for 2 weeks.. I would be thankful .. I live in IL but it doesn't have to be IL ... thank you again.
