The American diet is full of literally thousands of processed “ingredients,” chemicals and additives that didn’t even exist 50 years ago, when the FDA last revamped their food regulations.
The processed food industry then formulates and engineers these ingredients to invent food-like substances that will drive sales and maximize profit. In other words, they knowingly manufacture foods that disrupt the way our bodies respond to these foods, making them literally addictive.
So detox emphasizes on “cleansing” the bad, but in a way that corroborates the good with sustainable, lifelong habits. So, you may need it to abate diseases or to fight existing medications for being diabetic or overweight.
