Allie Might, INHC: [00:00:40] Welcome to the Invite Health Podcast, where today we will be discussing how to do a simple detox. This is Ally Might Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Functional Medicine Coach here with a day in the life of a detox. † [00:00:51]
[00:00:52] When I do the detox, I typically do it anywhere from 5 to 10 days, depending on how I’m feeling. Upon waking up, this is how my day would go. I would start off by making a cup of warm water with the juice of a half a lemon. I will follow that up with a quick 5 to 10 minute meditation where I take that time to do some deep breathing and really set my intentions for the day. After my quick meditation, I will take my morning supplements, which typically consists of a probiotic. To start to help balance out my gut flora, as well as an herbal formula called Hepatox, which consists of a little bit of milk thistle, some dandelion root and Phyllanthus amarus extract, all to help support my liver health. I will take those with my breakfast, which will usually consist of an egg which I either like to poach or soft boil. And I will pair that with either three cups of steamed broccoli or an entire bag of spinach that I will lightly sauté with a little bit of fresh black pepper and some garlic. A couple hours after breakfast, I’ll have my morning snack, which I like to have some fruit at that time. This will either be peaches, plums, maybe a nectarine, or some fresh berries. † [00:02:16]
[00:02:17] A couple hours after my morning snack, I will have my afternoon supplements which consist of a good multivitamin, milk thistle, as well as N-acetyl cysteine, which is commonly referred to as NAC or N.A.C. These two supplements are very good not only for liver support, but also to help support the kidneys. I will have that with my lunch, which consists of either a large salad which I make with either kale or some arugula, and I typically use about 2 to 3 cups of that, just depending on how large I want the salad and to that I will add in all kinds of other different vegetables, maybe sometimes pepper, some additional broccoli, maybe some mushrooms, cucumbers, zucchini, anything that I have at home that looks really good, I will throw into that salad. To the salad, then I will add in fresh herbs, either basil or cilantro, some seeds, which is usually sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, and then some fresh citrus of either a lime or lemon to add some nice extra flavor and depth into my salad. † [00:03:34]
[00:03:35] My other favorite go to lunch would be vegetable soup, which I would make with vegetable broth and diced, add a couple of cups of diced vegetables and I would pair that with a side salad of chopped up cucumbers and tomatoes. A couple hours later, I’ll have my absolute favorite afternoon snack, which always consists of a cup of vegetables that I cut into sticks. So I’ll have a variety of carrot sticks, celery sticks, pepper sticks or cucumber sticks. After that, I’ll do a light workout, which consists of some light stretching, restorative yoga, or walk through the park when it’s time for dinner. I have another Hepatox like I had in the morning, and then when I make dinner, this is where I get really creative for the day with my meals, I’ll have anywhere from a third of a piece of tofu and three cups of vegetables to zoodles, which is spiralized zucchini to look like pasta with some fresh marinara sauce or sliced tomatoes on top. To my absolute favorite, which is a bag of sautéed spinach topped with marinara sauce. And then I’ll bake a well in that and I’ll crack an egg and steam it until the egg is the consistency that I like it.† [00:04:57]
[00:04:57] A couple hours later, I will have my what I like to call my night supplements, which is a scoop of fiber or psyllium husk and an eight ounce glass of water. I mix that up and drink that before going to bed, and that is my day of a detox. I hope this has been helpful for you to see what a detox would look like on a daily basis.

We are all exposed to so many different and damaging factors everyday from a variety of things such as food we eat, cleaning products, grooming/beauty products, mercury fillings, the air/environment, the workplace and social places. It is important to go through a detoxification process at least once a year to get rid of toxins and help optimum health benefits.
If you’re concerned about the health of your skin, you and your dermatologist need to talk about Vitamin B3. This nutrient helps to protect and support the health of your skin.

Today, I want to talk about detoxification and if you’re going to do a cleanse, the best way to go about doing this. There are many varieties of detoxes and cleanses. You can look at different processes that are geared towards removing chemicals or toxins from the body. This can help to try to promote weight loss and overall health. Some of these cleanses consist of only drinking certain liquids, eating certain foods or using different herbal remedies, but, at the end of the day, we have to recognize that the body goes through detoxification on a daily basis. What we need to focus on is not these crash detoxes, but what we can do to support daily detoxification.†
What is metabolic detoxification?
Metabolic detoxification is something that occurs in the body each and every single day. The body is very well equipped to go through and process unwanted chemicals so that the body can get rid of them. This includes foreign chemicals that we might be taking in from foods, medications, topical products and more.†
We have to make sure that the body has the tools that it needs to go through the metabolic detoxification process. When we start to have more added toxins, our body’s ability to remove them slows down. This can impact things such as energy levels, weight, skin health and more. This is an indication that we may be impacting some phase of our normal metabolic detoxification, meaning that we are adding additional workload onto those phases.†
Nutrients needed to remove toxins from the body
When we look at what the body utilizes through the different phases of detoxification, we can look at our vitamins and minerals. B vitamins, including things like niacin, riboflavin and folate, as well as Vitamin E and Vitamin C are very important. We can also look at magnesium and selenium. All of these nutrients are important in helping to support proper detoxification of chemicals in the body.†
Powerful flavonols found in brightly-colored fruits can also help with detoxification. This includes nutrients from green tea such as sulforaphanes, EGCG and tannins, such as other nutrients found in vegetables such as broccoli. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is important because it helps to bolster up glutathione, which is also important for detoxifying the body. Milk thistle is beneficial for kidney and liver health as well.†
In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH explains what a healthy detox of the body looks like. She details the multiple phases of the detoxification process and offers recommendations for supporting your body’s natural ability to remove toxins.†
