The kidneys and bladder, the spleen and lymph nodes, the digestive system (including the liver) and the circulatory system all "clean house" as part of their normal bodily functions. There are many herbs that have traditionally been used to support the immune system, promote healthy liver function and encourage healthy digestion and elimination.
When it comes to calories, the body is like Goldilocks, preferring an amount that is "just right" for maintaining healthy digestion and normal energy levels.* After a meal, light exercise can give your digestive system a little more room to stretch out and do what it needs to do, and it will also help get the blood flowing to the rest of your body, supporting healthy energy levels.
Caution: Do Not Attempt ANY cleansing or detoxification programme if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, nor if you are under 16 years, underweight, frail or diabetic.

Still, there are times when we might need some support. Lifestyle, environment and dietary choices are some of the simplest aspects to change. Here's how you might get started.
