Eating Clean: Detox Your Body
If your health throws you a curve ball, maybe it's time to eat clean.

Eating "clean" means eating whole foods. It doesn’t mean you have to prepare multi-step gourmet meals. It can be very simple. Meals with few ingredients can fuel your body and help you heal.

But, you have to start reading labels and advocate for your own health.

Tips for Detoxifying Your Body:

  • Eat organic.
  • Cut out caffeine.
  • Eliminate added sugars.
  • Eat to support the liver.
  • Use an infrared sauna.
  • Ease your nervous system. Breathe deeply and relax.
Retrain your body to enjoy natural flavors. Citrus zest and fresh herbs and spices can help you create tasty foods. Banana, avocado and coconut milk can add creaminess without dairy or soy. Seek out an amazing sea salt and delicious freshly-ground pepper to season your food.

Listen as Amie Valpone shares her own health struggles (and achievements) with Dr. Holly Lucille and provides tips for eating clean.
