Foods that help detoxify the body

This video is meant to expand your general knowledge about living a healthy life and is NOT a substitute for seeking medical advice. Please consult with your doctor before making changes in your health practices, diet and self-care. 

In this video, Dr. Mark Hyman sits down with Maggie Ward, Nutrition Director at The UltraWellness Center, to discuss which foods enhance the body’s detoxication pathways.

In a healthy body, the process of detoxification runs smoothly. But when we are toxic, the mechanism for detoxification in the liver gets sluggish, and certain toxins can remain active longer than we want or than our systems can handle. This makes us sick and impedes normal metabolism. It also causes fluid retention, bloating, puffiness, and so on.

The discussion here identifies detoxification-enhancing foods that are important to incorporate into a diet for optimal health. The video is an excerpt from a longer talk on detoxification, which you can find here.
