    There’s no such thing as ‘detoxing’. In medical terms, it’s a nonsense. Diet and exercise is the only way to get healthy. But which of the latest fad regimes can really make a difference? We look at the facts

    Well, that's disheartening. Back to my cyanide shake.

    Glad someone has addressed this. These buzzwords, "detox" and "toxins" drive me nuts. What toxins are you talking about? Mercury? Lactic acid? What? Unless your liver and/or kidneys are failing, you shouldn't be harboring any toxins.

    Go get a colonic and see for yourself how real a clean-out really is.( hint you will weigh less when you leave ) . Also search on the latest research on the benefit of the sauna. ( skin in the largest organ of elimination) . And every professional athlete knows the importance of massage in muscle repair.

    "Debunking" is a perennial form of scam. It's an easy way to get published; simply make contrarian claims also unsubstantiated. Somehow negative claims are not scrutinized.

    If you want to detox, stop drinking and/or using drugs.

    If you want to be healthy, eat less and move more.

    I have to agree with this. It seems everything good and positive eventually is attacked by some random "study" that claims to prove it wrong. Of course many of these studies are correct but I have my doubts about many of them.

    Maybe "detox" isn't the right term, but whenever I feel fatigued and just poorly in general, I do a cleanse and I feel remarkably better within 24 hours. So the studies can say all they want but I will continue with my occasional cleanses.
