    004 - 2 reasons you need to do a liver detoxification

    004 - 2 reasons you need to do a liver detoxification

    SHOW NOTES

    If you've been wondering if detoxing is for you, what it is exactly and why we need to support our liver, this episode is for you.

    While our liver is a natural detoxifying organ that works 24/7, the truth is the toxic environment we now live in, paired with our soils (therefore our food) being depleted of essential micronutrients is putting extra pressure on this critical organ.

    As a result, our rain barrel fills up and we start seeing random symptoms showing up.

    In this show, I'll talk about:

    - The difference between a cleanse and a detox

    - The benefits of a liver detox

    - Exactly what a liver detox entails: what it includes, how long to fast, what to eat/not eat, etc

    - The 2 reasons why I think everyone can benefit from a detox

    - The signs that your body is dealing with some toxicity overload

    - Who the detox is contra-indicated for (please speak to your physician first)

    - Why I want you to have a successful experience detoxing and why I created my detox mini-course (free when you purchase the detox with me!)

    - Here are some additional links discussed:


    Visit my detox FAQ page here: https://www.vanessagrutman.com/detox-faq
