Is a Detoxification Diet Right For You?

As a physician, I am fascinated by the complexity, subtlety, and diversity of individual health habits—specifically, the combinations of various substances we imbibe and ingest. The spectrum of these substances includes the components of our diet, supplements, drugs, and pollutants. These all are part of our possible choices and have effects on our life and health, both present and future.
