I dont think you can: All you have to do is google "body detoxification" and you will find hundreds, perhaps thousands, of methods and products to help the body detox itself. However, I have not seen any scientific studies that prove that such a thing happens, or that any of these things work. As far as i know, only time works, and it works well. A healthy diet, exercise and a positive attitude helps you feel better.

Folklore: I'm afraid the idea of "toxins in your body" is not supported in the medical literature. Unless you ingest something poisonous, then all the byproducts of normal body functions (metabolism) will be taken care of by the body's built in elimination mechanisms - so all you need to do is maintain a healthy diet and drink reasonable amounts of fluid, and your body will take care of the rest.
