Detox without DeprivationJanuary 22, 2019
Functional nutritionist and author of Whole Detox Deanna Minich, PhD, sees detox in part as a way of letting go of things that don’t serve us. It is, she says, probably one of the oldest practices of humankind—to cleanse, to reevaluate what we need in our lives and what we don’t. But she also believes that health should be a joy—pleasurable, fun—not deprivation. Which is why her approach to detox focuses on what we can add back in to really nourish the body, the mind, and the spirit. She thinks about well-being in terms of color and chakras, and she outlines her seven systems of health for us, which tie it all together.
