Detoxification is one of Dr. Ritamarie's favorite topics. People ask Dr. Ritamarie all the time about what toxins are and why they need a detoxification program, especially if they don't smoke, drink alcohol, or take drugs. Toxins create problems which you would perceive as symptoms or diseases. Detoxification happens naturally in our body all the time – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have these amazing inborn mechanisms for detoxifying, so why do we need to do a detoxification program, or anything special, in order to detoxify if your body's built in mechanism handles it all the time?
Join Dr. Ritamarie and author Susan Schenck as they discuss what goes on in detoxification – the cells and the organs. Besides the liver, there are enzymes that help start the process of detoxification. If your digestion is impaired, you eat on the run, and eat food with pesticides, your body produces toxins, making it harder for your body's natural digestion capacity to detox. Learn about how altering your diet, changing your stress levels, and using specialized foods that have the high levels of nutrients your liver needs to detoxify will help support your body as it naturally goes through its detoxification process.
