“Spring is the perfect time to support your body’s natural ability to detoxify. The good news is you don’t have to get exotic ingredients or spend a lot of money on supplements. Most folks will feel noticeably better just doing the basics.”

Try These Simple 5 steps For 2 weeks


Step 1:

Decrease the amount work your liver needs to do needs to do: decrease alcohol, choose organic and unprocessed when possible, limit caffeine.


Step 2:

Eat greens! I recommend that most of my patients get 2-3 cups of leafy greens most days of the week. Raw or cooked, a rotating variety. You will get great fiber to feed your microbiome and nutrients to support the liver.


Step 3:

Drink fluids - water, herbal or green tea. A good goal is 1/2 your body weight in ounces daily. Add a bit more if doing sweaty exercise. Bonus points for adding lemon to your water - it stimulates digestion.

Step 4:

 Give your gut a break - fast for at least 12 hours every night. It is pretty easy, for example - eat dinner by 8pm and then breakfast then next day at 8 am. 

Step 5:

Sweat! Skin is a significant organ of detoxification - try to break a sweat most days a week through exercise or sauna.
