This is Why it's Important to Detox

Nov 5, 2016 BY Joy McCarthy

The countdown to the official launch of my second book, Joyous Detox, has officially started and I could not be more excited!! I can’t wait to share tons of new recipes, food tips and lifestyle habits to help you feel more joyous than ever!

I designed Joyous Detox to be not just a diet, or a thing you do once in a while when you’re feeling less than your best. I want it to be a sustainable lifestyle that helps you detox a little more every day.

But that begs the question: why do we need to detox in the first place?

Our liver is designed to help our body get rid of anything potentially harmful or toxic. The trouble is that modern lifestyle and eating habits mean we are exposed to so many more toxins through so many more different avenues than our poor livers were ever designed to handle. Here are some of the biggest reasons why we should all look at leading a more detox-friendly life:

Fortunately, there are so many things we can do to give our livers a detoxifying helping hand! Check out my many detox-related posts up on the blog, and stay tuned for my Joyous Detox book coming out next month!

Hi Joy, Just curious - what is the difference between coffee and caffeinated tea for your liver? Both drinks are caffeine and would require your liver to work through it. Would you suggest for people to avoid caffeinated teas? Susan

Great question, Susan! Because caffeine (whether from coffee OR tea) must be processed by the liver, we recommend enjoying caffeine free herbal teas in place of caffeinated versions during a detox. I hope that helps! Heather- Joyous Health Team
