detoxification what you should know

There’s a lot of talk about how women need to suffer painful fasting and harsh cleanses to purge poisons from their bodies.

That’s not what we advocate because those punishing methods aren’t necessary. They won’t work the way you imagine, and they may even damage your natural detox pathways. The fact is, your body already knows how to detox on its own.

It is a good idea for you to pay more attention to detox. Your detox systems are often overwhelmed by a host of factors, including environment, lifestyle, diet and even genetics. Our experts have seen how toxicity is behind many common symptoms and mysterious ailments, some of them very serious or even debilitating.

When you know what to do and how to do it, you can help your body’s natural detox functions do their job so you have more energy, clearer skin — even a healthier weight.

Providing the right support and raw materials gives your body what it needs to root out damaging toxins and carry them out of your system.
