A gentle, total-body detox can be like having your own luxury spa right at home – you can run an Epsom salt bath, light some beeswax candles, and drink a delicious green vegetable smoothie. When people learn just how easy detox and cleansing can be with the right foods, lifestyle practices and targeted supplements, it becomes a revolutionary way to revitalize long term health.
