Is it necessary, indeed is it even possible, to give your body a detox?

Around this time of year, several of my friends tell me that they are on a detox and seem astonished why I explain that I actually I don’t believe detox is necessary or even possible.

Don’t take it from me. Listen to Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of complementary medicine at Exeter University:

“If toxins did build up in a way your body couldn’t excrete, you’d likely be dead or in need of serious medical intervention. The healthy body has kidneys, a liver, skin, even lungs that are detoxifying as we speak. There is no known way – certainly not through detox treatments – to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better.”
