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.

I wanted to take a moment to share with you what I feel are the ten supplements most people should be taking.†



A multivitamin is the essential baseline to start your personal vitamin regimen. Once you’ve established the right multi for your personal needs, you add in any other supplements for your own health concerns and goals.†

Our options: Core Multi, Men’s Multi, Women’s Multi, Performance Multi, Multi Energy Powder, Daily Multi with Grape Seed and the Kid’s Multi


Most have heard of probiotics as healthy bacteria and as important to re-balance our gut after taking an antibiotic. However, did you also know helpful probiotics are for digestion, immune function and weight loss?†

Our options: Probiotic HxⓇ, Probiotic HxⓇ Weight, Probiotic Maintain and Core Probiotic


Collagen is needed for all of our connective tissues, not just hair, skin and nails. It can help your brain, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones.†

Our options: Collagen HxⓇ, Collagen 3000 tabs, Collagex HA, Flex HxⓇ and True Beauty



Omegas are a true powerhouse! They are important not only for our heart and brain, but also for our eyes, veins and skin. Omegas can aid in digestion, support healthy bowel function and hydrate from the inside out. Omegas can also ease inflammation.†

Our options: Fish Oil, Biomega, Krill Oil Advanced and Organic Flaxseed Powder (vegetarian option)

NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine)

NAC is a precursor to glutathione, which means our bodies use NAC to make glutathione, which is essential for anti-aging. NAC is most commonly used for our respiratory system to open up the lungs for easier breathing and to aid in liver and kidney detoxification.†

Our option: NAC


Grape Seed Extract is a great antioxidant that can help aid in circulation. This nutrient can also be beneficial for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels, healthy eyes and even targets inflammation.†

Our option: Grape Seed Extract


Resveratrol is something we’ve all heard of…it’s what makes a glass of red wine “good for you”. It’s great for anti-aging, as well as our brain, heart and intestinal health. Resveratrol can help our cells fend off free radical damage, which can make us more susceptible to developing illnesses and diseases.†

Our options: Resveratrol, Resveratrol HxⓇ, Resveratrol Max HxⓇ and Resveratrol-50


Green tea is a great all-around beneficial antioxidant. Not only is it good for maintaining healthy weight but can also aid in weight loss by helping to promote fat burning in our bodies. Green tea can also act as an immunity booster and can support healthy cell division.†

Our options: Green Tea HxⓇ, Green Tea TxⓇ and Green Tea Fat Burner



Everyone knows how important calcium is for our bones. It helps to keep them strong and healthy. It can help maintain bone density and is essential for proper bone aging. Calcium is best used along with such vitamins and minerals like magnesium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and sometimes strontium.†

Our options: Calcium Magnesium Citrate, Calplex HxⓇ and Bone Powder (aka MY PERSONAL FAVORITE!)†

Vitamin D 

Vitamin D3 that is a lipid soluble compound that plays a significant role in calcium homeostasis and bone metabolism. Vitamin D naturally comes from sunlight but with time people are getting less sunlight spending more time indoors. As mentioned above calcium and vitamin D can play a role together therefore it is important to include vitamin D into your daily regimen as well. † 

Our options: Vitamin D3 1000 IU, Vitamin D3 3000 IU, and Vitamin D3 300 IU †
