Detox Made Simple: Part 3

In part one of this series on detoxification, I uncovered the common sources of toxins we encounter in our everyday lives and the ways our body naturally detoxifies itself. Last week in part two, I shared how inefficiencies in the body’s capacity to detoxify can negatively impact our weight, body composition, and overall health. Today, I’ll highlight some popular detoxification programs and compare their approaches to Life Time’s very own D.TOX plan. As healthy as detoxification can be, not every regimen is safe and/or effective. I’ll also share the amazing results we found in participants who tested our D.TOX plan and fill you in on how you can get started with your very own D.TOX.
