Looking to detox, but don't have the time or the money to spend a few weeks at a secluded spa (or to purchase expensive juices)? Well, fear not. Turns out there is a way for active and busy people to detox in one month. Ben Greenfield, author of Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health, & Life, explains how.
#1: Go easy. Focus on light aerobic exercise with a
few weight sessions a week, rather than on intense interval training,
which is not so good combined with a fiber-filled diet.
#2: Eat clean. Strip your refrigerator and pantry of
all foods that are processed and nonorganic, in addition to nervous
system stimulates like caffeine and alcohol. Instead of chips, crackers,
cookies, candies, and coffee, fill your kitchen with liver-detoxifying superfoods, such as broccoli, flaxseeds, lemons, garlic, artichokes, turmeric, apples, beets, dandelion leaves, and sea vegetables.

#3: Relax. Sleep as much as you can
and limit your exposure to stress. If possible, spend some time in a
steam room, sauna, or hot yoga class to flush out the toxins from your
body by sweating.
#4: Consider the right supplements.
Greenfield recommends taking specific supplements during your monthlong
detox to facilitate the removal of harmful compounds. Some of his
recommendations include two to three sprays under the tongue of
liposomal glutathione once a day, 400 to 600 milligrams a day of oral
magnesium, and two to three capsules a day of activated charcoal.
