Are Detox Diets Good For Overall Health?

For some, fitness is a year-round commitment.  For others, getting in shape is a sporadic exercise.  How we shape and condition our bodies is important to how we feel emotionally and physically and we put a lot of emphasis on exercise and diet to look the best that we can.  But are we paying as much attention to what we put in our bodies to achieve optimal health?

"To properly set the tone for the inner body and good overall health, it's vital to get the bad stuff - toxins - out and keep them out", says Dr. Suhyun An, co-author of Demystifying Stem Cells: A Real-Life Approach To Regenerative Medicine.  In this conversation, Dr. An says toxins can severely affect every part of the body and being truly healthy on the inside should be a year-round commitment.
