Is there a way to detox/cleanse without having to go out and buy something?

What I mean is there a way to do it by just using something that I would probably already have in my fridge or pantry?

  • Drinking water. But don't drink too much, that can cause you to get bloated.

  • Be careful with water. You can actually die from drinking too much. A woman did die as part of a radio contest a couple of years ago, but I think she drank a ridiculous quantity.

    You can remove foods that are harder to digest from you diet for a few days like meat or dairy, no wheat.

    I have a drink I take about once every couple of months. I love it because I don't have to fast. If you are interested you can check it out at

  • That women also drank gallons upon gallons within a short time period. And, no, drinking up to 100oz a day won't leave you bloated. Drinking water actually flushes your system and relives water retention. And, I mean plain ole' water. Eating plenty of fuits and veggies and whole grain foods also help. As long as you are drinking the water and eating the food, your body will do what it is naturally supposed to do. Cleanse itself. I hate all the misconception and mumbo-jumbo told on here. Like that you need Acaiberries and colon clenses. Yeah right. Try just eating properly and no processed foods. It does wonders.
