1 doctor agrees

In brief: Few

There is a theory in alternative practice that somehow the body is full of toxins that need to be eliminated.
In fact the body is terrific at identifying substances that do not belong and will get rid of them. Of course if you are exposed to high levels of certain toxins like mercury, lead and some obvious poisons, the elimination may be overwhelmed but true toxins are rare.
