Many strategies: We all accumulate a large variety of environmental toxins & i advise everyone to periodically detox. A good mulivit. Supports detox, as can many herbs; i like orac energy greens & chlorella 2 grams 2x/day 15 min. Before meals. Saunas help us detox. Eat mostly organic vegies & fruits.
