No: Put your hand over your wallet. Your body cleans itself out especially if you stay physically fit. All the stuff you read online about 'superfoods' to 'cleanse you' or godawful things you can drink to 'purge / detox' you is made up. Some of these are just money-makers for crooks. Others (especially the terrible drinks) are cruel pranks. There's nothing 'spiritual' about buying into scare tales.
