This time of year, there’s a lot of talk on the interwebs about “Detoxing” and “Cleansing.”

So how do you separate fact from fiction?

Dr. Jillian Teta is back with us to talk about the differences between detoxing and cleansing, and the things to keep in mind if you pursue your own “Spring Cleaning.”

Dr. Jillian


What We Talk About

  • Detox vs cleanse – what do they actually mean?
  • Your body’s “Big 5” paths to detoxification
  • What helps and hurts your ability to detoxify
  • Why you may need to try a cleanse, and how NOT to do it
  • Dr. Jillian’s take on the off-the-shelf “detox in a box” 
  • When cleansing is a waste of time, money and effort 
  • The one thing you MUST be doing before you pursue any cleanse
  • How a practitioner can help you with a structured cleanse
  • Her husband, Dr. Keoni Teta’s take on the single best method to support continuous detoxification

Jillian’s “ONE HABIT” to try for a week: Sit to eat, and chew your food so throughly that is becomes a paste (eewww, but true).

Jillian’s “ONE RESOURCE” that she recommends to us: the Environmental Working Group consumer guides, especially this one – get the app
