Debunking detox with 5 easy fixes

Debunking detox with 5 easy fixes 1Lots of things in life create messes that need to be cleaned up — even in our bodies.

And with cold and flu season in full swing, a body clean up will not only help to improve your digestive system, but it may also help boost your immune system as well.

eggs 570540 640
Eggs have been the scapegoat and poster child for healthy living. Finally, they have been vindicated for their high levels of dietary cholesterol.
