Living in today's industrialized society, we're exposed to environmental toxins that can overload our systems. Combine that with the junk in processed foods and it becomes more important than ever to do the occasional dietary reset. Dr. Alejandro Junger was forced to learn this lesson himself and has been endeavoring to help others do the same ever since.
While moving in the direction of living healthily requires effort, Dr. Junger has created programs that are an accessible on-ramp to help people take better care of themselves. Combining principles of functional medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, his system goes further into helping find ways to reset and detoxify our bodies.
