Yes, there is a way to detox the body...And our own cells do a very good job of this every second! the key to getting healthy is not taking a bunch of vitamins or some fad drink; it is getting regular physical activity, plenty of sleep, eating a well-balanced diet, and having a rewarding work-life balance. Focus on these things rather than detoxing and you'll go far!

The liver and kidneys are constantly metabolizing the many toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. Any good detox program will focus on optimizing the function of these organs. Eat clean food and drink clean water - no pesticides or unnecessary chemicals. Eat a lot of vegetables (on the order of 10 servings a day. It's important to poop normally, but colon cleansing is not really detoxing.
