In this Clinical Minute, Dr. Nikky Contractor discusses the difference between a detox regimen and a cleanse regimen and when and how to use each.
Cleanse: focus on restoring gut function, eliminating “bad” bacteria from the gut, and resetting the gut.
Metabolic Detoxification: supporting the body’s natural processes to remove toxins.
We can overburden our detox system. Adopting a dietary pattern that eliminates potential allergens, calms the intestinal lining, calms the immune system, and supports elimination of toxins from the body is a way to reduce the burden on the body’s detox system.
