Why do we need to detox? The reality is, unfortunately, we live in a toxic world with over 144,000 manmade chemicals introduced since World War Two. What happens is that the human body was never designed to have to deal with the deluge of toxins we’re living under today. Unfortunately, we are now in a place where we can no longer avoid them. But we can make a choice to look after our greatest asset, our health, our body, we only get one and help get those toxins out.
