Best way to cleanse your body internally?

Best way to cleanse your body internally?

No need: Eat healthy and exercise. Our bodies cleanse themselves beautfiully when cared for appropriately. Most marketed "cleansers" are just laxatives that can lead to complications with excess use and in some folks with any use.

What to tell me about a body cleansing?

What to tell me about a body cleansing?

Ineffective: This is a mantra among non-md "health practitioners" like naturopaths that the body has accumulated toxins which their regimens can correct. The body is in fact magnificent at cleaning itself out and there is not objective evidence, and no clinical studies, that "detoxification" has any value. Don't waste your money. If you are feeling ill, there may be a cause, but it is not toxins. ...Read more

It doesn't work.: Puriclean is intended to mask the traces of drugs in your body for the purposes of "detoxing, " passing a drug test, or minimizing a hangover. However, its ingredients have never been shown to effectively do this. No supplements, cleanses, or "detoxes" can strip your body of chemicals or "toxins" more effectively than your liver and kidneys already do, over the proper timeline. Don't waste your $. ...Read more

We're self-cleaning: Humans, designed or evolved over millions of years, are self-cleaning. That means we should eat what we are designed to eat, and our bodies will clear out unneeded materials without help. No supplements are needed, unless one wants extra fiber to move the bowels better.
