Detox at Home?

Has anyone ever done their own DIY detox plan at home.  I'd like to try but not sure what I should take.  I don't want to buy one of the expensive kits on the market as I'm not sure what's in them.

Small steps lead to great things.

    I wanted to try that as well but have no clue which is best or safest.  I have heard that Jillian Michaels has an effective detox kit,  does anyone know about it?

    Re: Detox at Home?

    "Detox" is short for detoxification and detoxification is a natural process involving your liver and kidneys and there is nothing you can do to effect it. It is impossible to detoxify a human once the toxin is in the blood with the possible exception of kidney dialysis, kelation therapy, and other expensive medical modalities. Currently "detox" is a faddist word, relatively meaningless, and is used to express that which the users cannot otherwise express because of ignorance of because the expression would be patently false.


    Detox diets, cleanses, and supplements don't work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don't work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.


    Check out these reliable references. Listen to experts, not a random bunch of strangers of unknown credibility in this and other forums. Here's what the experts have to say about cleanses.
