The Truth About the Detox Diet

Detox is one of the hottest things going right now, with almost everyone offering their method for removing the body of all things bad. The real question is: why do we need to detox if our bodies come with built in mechanisms to cleanse? 

There is a lot of money to be made in the detox business, and according to a 2007 survey on alternative medicine, Americans spend $34 billion annually to feed the alternative health lifestyle. with the resurgence of alternative health, this number is most likely much higher in 2015. There are a lot of bogus diets out there. Be sure to do your research, ask friends if they’ve had any experience with them. Be sure to consult your doctor before committing to any detox diet. Choose a diet that is the best fit for you and your needs but be leery of detox diets that are extreme in their approach and that make outrageous claims and promises.
