5 Reasons Why You Should Do a Detox

Interview: Dr. Donna Perillo.

Dr. Donna Perillo, DC, CNS, NMD; creator of “Arthriticise for Low Back and Neck Pain,” “Decrease Stress and Anxiety in 21 Days,” and the “Habits of Healing” podcast.

Dr. Perillo’s talking points on doing a detox:
  • Weight loss. This is probably the number one reason most people will be
    motivated to do a detox or body cleanse program. It is a great way to lose
    weight and gain momentum.

  • Improved sleep. Detoxing gives your body a rest. The liver and kidneys
    are your main detoxifying organs and when they are able to rest they can
    become more efficient with less stress on the rest of your bodily functions.
  • Increased energy. Since your body is able to function more efficiently you
    will have more energy and vitality!
  • Improved cognitive function. Some toxins are able to cross the blood/brain
    barrier. These toxins can interfere with your brain and nervous system.
    Most detox programs can help remove some toxins from the brain and
    nervous system and therefore improve cognition.
  • Improved digestion. A good detox program will allow your digestive
    system to rest and rebuild. Most people notice a huge difference in their
    digestion. People often report decreased bloating and reflux and better

There are many types of detox programs. The length can be anywhere from
a day to months, depending on the patient’s goals and health status. Some
programs require fasting and others don’t. Some include protein shakes
and others do not. Generally if you have never done a detox you should
start off slowly and under professional supervision.
