Is 'Cleansing Fast' Healthy?

Wednesday, 10 October 2012 09:28 AM EDT

My wife is doing a “cleansing fast” for a week during which she won’t eat any solid food and will only drink water and juices. This sounds very unhealthy to me, but she insists it will reduce toxins in her body. What do you think?

Dr. Cwynar's answer:
Doing detoxes are a fabulous way to jump start one's metabolism. They reduce the inflammation that occurs from the toxins of our diet. Inflammation blocks metabolism. Don't do the detoxes that are radical. By that I mean starving oneself, doing lemon all day, grapefruit, or the trendy detoxes that we see on TV. Consult your health care provider before fasting. Many
doctors are not informed about healthy detoxes and the proper way to fast, and so you may need to talk to a nutritionist or even a chiropractor.
