The purpose of any detoxification is to remove toxins from the body that have been accumulated via food, air and other sources. Feeling sick, tired, overweight, irritable, sleepy, and craving sugar are usually symptoms of internal health imbalances. Since our organs work together it is important to consider the various organs in restoring overall health and wellness.
