Detoxification, Fasting, And Colon Therapy for Obesity

Detoxification therapy holds that certain toxins such as chemicals and pesticides can build up in the body, particularly in fat cells. These toxins need to be cleansed away as part of a dietary and exercise treatment program for obesity. Detoxification regimens are also useful in preventing obesity from returning.

Detoxification treatments may include fasting, colonic irrigations, and several other procedures.

Herbs, such as dandelion root, burdock, etc. are often used to boost the function of the liver in conjunction with a detoxification and fasting regimen. This cleanses toxins from the body. (See more on herbs at herbal medicine).

A juice fast for detoxification is also sometimes performed. Use carrot and green vegetable juices diluted with an equal amount of water. Consume one quart juice daily Augment it with additional water if necessary.

If you fast, it should be performed only under the supervision of a qualified health care professional.
