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.

This was written to sell the author's shakes and supplements. Your body can clean itself on its own, that's what it's designed to do. If you've been eating foods that make your body react poorly, except in very rare circumstances (circumstances bad enough to warrant going to a doctor, like acute toxicity), you do not need a "detox" to get rid of them. There is such a thing as a detox for things like drug overdoses and poisoning, but an average person doesn't need it, even if you've been on a 3-meals-a-day-at-McDonalds diet.
