Toxins bombard us from every angle. They exist in the air we breathe, the cosmetics and cleaning products we use, the water we drink and bathe in, and the foods (especially processed ones) we eat. Even mental stress ups our toxic load. When all this “junk” accumulates, you may experience symptoms from widespread inflammation in the body, which is the root of many chronic illnesses. Our bodies have built-in systems to boot these “bad guys,” but there’s growing belief among many experts that our natural cleaning crew can get overwhelmed and could use an extra hand to detox the body. There are many means to lending this support, from switching up your diet to new personal care routines.

“How you feel is largely based on how efficiently your body is removing and purging toxins,” says Taz Bhatia, MD, an Atlanta-based integrative health expert and author of Super Woman Rx. “If you are sluggish or tired, no matter how much coffee you drink or how much sleep you get, there’s a good chance your body needs a detox to get you feeling better and to reset habits.”
