How NOT to Detox (and When to Get Help)
Know When You Need Professional Guidance

The detoxification process is a powerful one and should be treated with the greatest respect. General, mild body detoxification processes can usually be undertaken in complete safety without the services of a qualified health professional; however attempting more than that on your own can cause big problems. For example:

A young man had been experimenting with some substances that were not good for him. Happily, he figured that out and decided to take steps to cleanse his body and recover his health. Great, so far. However, he made a big mistake and undertook a powerful gall bladder cleansing procedure on his own without effective help and ended up in the hospital.

Turns out his gall bladder contained some stones, and when he pushed his bile production in the cleansing process, the stones were pushed into his bile duct, blocking it, creating an infection and requiring antibiotics and surgery.

Detox Options:

If you started searching on your own, you'd find a huge variety of detox options, some of them products, some programs, some both. You'll find detox recipes, detox foods, juice detoxes such as cranberry or lemon juice, water fasting, detox foods, 3 day detoxes; 21 day detoxes, raw food detoxes and on and on.

That's another reason to work with a qualified professional for any but the simplest detox processes - to help you sort through the myriad of ways to cleanse your body and find what's right for you. And even at that, the choice you make now may not be the right one for you later. It all depends on the state of your body at the time.

For example, if you were fighting an infection, you'd need lots of good quality protein to aid your recovery, so undertaking some variety of juice fast (a very low protein choice) would actually work against you.
