February Detox Time

person cutting peppers on a chopping boardJoin our ChiroActive community for Detox time in February on Facebook and Instagram. Give your system a reboot for better health, digestion, and overall function. Set aside sugar, dairy, red meat, alcohol, caffeine, and grains for a short time. Detox food doesn’t have to mean boring meals, just use your favorite spices along with your healthy whole foods to make it taste great.

Typically many will follow a detox for 1-3 weeks. Your body naturally detoxes everyday, but sometimes after holiday eating or other times of stress it can use a little help. Yes, there are supplements that can aid your liver in detoxing, but to keep it easy to get started, simply eat healthy foods on the detox list, and focus on treating your mind and body exceptionally well during your detox time.

Each detox list can vary, however, for most functional medicine practitioners agree on the following detox list of foods:

Animal Protein

  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Fish: cod, haddock, salmon, anchovies, sardines, scallops, sole, shrimp, tilapia, trout
