The Secrets Of Detox

Secrets of detox debunked image

I have seen the question pop up a few times concerning doing a detox or juice cleanse, before taking on a plant-based or vegan diet. So should you do a detox?

There isn’t any convincing evidence that detox or cleansing programs remove toxins from your body or improve your health. The reasoning around “wanting to detox from all the meat toxins and craving”, is not based on physical evidence, and I would propose more to do with the mindset or psychology lying behind it.

As sold to the public, cleanses and detox diets do not work!

Most of their benefits, such as rapid, short-term, weight loss, can be attributed to the drastic caloric restriction, not to detoxification.

The only time you would need to have medical detoxification is with medical supervision when you poison yourself with drugs, alcohol, chemicals or hard metal compounds.

Your body has it’s in build detoxification system

Our lungs and other organs work to remove harmful substances. Your liver transforms chemicals into non-harmful substances that are excreted in the urine or faeces A diet rich in protein, vegetables, and fruits will provide your organs with the nutrients they need to function optimally.
