Are You In Need of a Detox Diet?

A detox diet can be a powerful self-healing tool. We are constantly being exposed to toxins in our food, water and environment. While our bodies are equipped to remove them, our increasing exposure may mean that we can't do it optimally, which alternative practitioners believe may result in tiredness, constipation, skin eruptions, struggles with weight, brittle nails and other ailments. A detox diet allows our bodies to focus on repairing itself.
