In my opinion, and based on my training, experience and reading of the literature, we are NOT filled chock full of toxins, and we do not need to do anything to get them out, in general. There are people exposed to toxic substances like heavy metals, where medical procedures to get those out are needed, but this idea that every organ needs "detox" is not supported by any science that I know of.
