You have lungs, kidneys, liver and other detox organs. Your body takes care of detoxing your system. You don't need all these programs and advice on how to detox. Use common sense and don't let your body take in toxins, as much as possible. You won't clear out all toxins from your system through these detox programs.

Fuel you put in needs to be potent and nutritious, free from pesticides and GMO's (doused with Round-up), and closest to the source (not processed). You over-tax your organs by ingesting poisons and toxins.

Don't smoke or breathe bad air, as much as possible. Your lungs can only filter so much, to keep you from harming your lungs.

Drink lots or water - water cleanses your body - you flush toxins out in your urine. Put a pinch of pure salt in your glass of water.

Keep air-purifying plants in your rooms. They can help pull toxins from the air. These include the peace lily (acetone, alcohols, formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia, trichloroethylene, etc.), ficus, Chysanthemum (formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia, xylene, trichloroethylene), bamboo palm (formaldehyde, benzene, chloroform, carbon monoxide, xylene), snake plant, eucalyptus, Gerber daisy, Chinese evergreen (formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene), pothos (formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, carbon monoxide, toluene), azalea, English/hedera ivy (benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde), Boston fern, rubber plant (formaldehyde), dracaena (formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, trichloroethylene), Arica palm (benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene), schefflera, spider plant, and certain others.

To help pull heavy metals, like lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, uranium, try using certain foods and herbs - cilantro, coriander, chlorella, blue-green algae, burdock root, garlic, selenium, onion, bentonite, amino acid glutathione, turmeric, and cloves.

If you have mercury fillings, you should see about taking them out. In your home, you are exposed to formaldehyde (glues, paints, carpets, furniture), trichloroethylene (adhesives, cleaners, paint removers), and benzene (rubber, pesticides, plastics, synthetics). The air is filled with pollution - toxins in the air. Water has fluoride and may have other elements passed on to you (filtered water may help).

You can make your own detox tea blend - I do, and drink it once daily. You can use herbs and spices such as: dandelion root and leaves, cilantro, milk thistle, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, fennel, lemon balm, lemongrass, nettle, burdock root, turmeric, cayenne pepper, lemon, basil, cardamom, mint, marshmallow root, and other healthy ingredients. you can blend with a green, black, rooibos, or white tea.

Do Aurvedic detoxing - dry brushing before a shower, oil pulling, sweating on a sauna - or sweating in general - taxins leave your body in the sweat.

We are surrounded by toxins - the best way to keep exposure down is to limit exposure as much as possible. Eat good foods (including the above suggestions), making sure to get vitamins and minerals without ingesting pesticides. Keep plants plentiful and do the best you can. You may not need to follow a detox regimen if you live cleanly, though it doesn't hurt to do some detox daily.
