The Model Health Show

The word “detox” has become somewhat of a buzzword in the health and wellness space, and a marketing strategy on social media. However, detoxification is a process that your body naturally experiences. If you have a liver, lymphatic system, and skin, your body knows exactly how to eliminate toxins. 

In Ayurvedic medicine, supporting your body’s detoxification system involves both nourishing your body with the nutrients it needs to work at its optimal level, as well as reducing your overall toxic burden. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a boatload of money on special teas and supplements in order to support your body’s natural detoxification process.

In fact, there are a handful of practical, simple strategies you can use to support your digestion and liver, as well as eliminate harmful toxic chemicals from your lifestyle. And there’s no one better to learn this lesson from than today’s guest, Dr. Alejandro Junger.
