A cleanse is a great way to jump start your metabolism and rid your body of accumulated toxins.
It’s not always easy picking which path to take to cleanse your body for the results you want. But, I’ve made it super easy with my Epic 24 Hour Detox. I don’t believe in deprivation, so you will not feel deprived in any way. In fact, you’ll feel quite the opposite!
The reality is, no matter how clean we eat, we live in a very toxic world. Before we even open our mouths to take a bite of food, we are exposed to vehicular and industrial pollution in the air and toxins in our cleaning products and cosmetics. Not to mention the havoc wreaked on the body by stress. So, the question is not ‘am I toxic?’ but rather ‘how toxic am I?’
Let’s get ready to eliminate those toxins that cause weight gain, brain fog, loss of sleep, loss
of mental clarity, and fatigue!
