The first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word “Detox” is some type of cleansing. It’s usually a juice for a liver detox or colon cleanse. The concept is to cause the body to flush out toxins. There are different types of toxins. Anything you ingest has the potential for toxins and we are aware of environmental toxins. The truth is your body is ALWAYS working to remove toxins of all kinds by default. But how does that work and how do you go about doing it?
