Listen on:

Last week, The Guardian released an article entitled, “You can’t detox your body. It’s a myth. So how do you get healthy?

In the article, author Dara Mohammadi said:

“…detoxing – the idea that you can flush your system of impurities and leave your organs squeaky clean and raring to go – is a scam. It’s a pseudo-medical concept designed to sell you things.”

So is this true? Is detoxing just a sham?

You're about to find out. But not here.

See, unknown to many BenGreenfieldFitness.com visitors, I really don't do the lion's share of my writing on this site. I instead write an article, write a newsletter, and release a short, 5-10 minute helpful and easy-to-understand audio podcast every week over at the Quick And Dirty Tips website.

So that is where Part 1 of my thoughts and recommendations based on this detoxing article appears, and also where Part 2 will appear tomorrow (Tuesday). Click here to read Part 1 of “Is Detoxing Really A Myth” (and if you want instant notification when Part 2 goes live, just click here to subscribe to the free Get-Fit Guy newsletter).

    Trivia question for Ben. Fill in the blank for this quote from detoxification expert David Root. ____________ ________detoxification protocol is the only method which numerous peer reviewed studies have established to be safe and effective in addressing the problem of xenobiotic* contamination."
    —David Root M.D.
    Did you know it or did you have to google it? I find it fascinating the numerous detoxification experts believe this is by far the best and most proven detox method there is. What is fascinating is almost no one knows about it. It is so effective that it is the main protocol that is used in narcotics detox centers. They get phenomenal results. I have studied the protocol extensively and am on about day 27 of the protocol. The proven benefits have been improved IQ, dramatically lower levels of toxins, contious reduction in toxins after the protocol is completed. The definitive book on the subject is titled Clear Body Clear Mind by L. Ron Hubbard. Here is the issue. The current book by that title has been dumbed down. If you want all of the important details of the program you must get a used book copy write 1990 not 2013. BTW you can sweat in an infrared sauna you just need the right one with the right method. I sweat between 2 and 3 pounds of sweat in a 60 minute session. I sweat so much that I have to wipe the sweat off every 2 minutes otherwise it starts to drip off my body. That is just over a quart of sweat in one hour. The Hubbard protocol, AKA purification rundown, is amazing. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks Brett Bauer
