Why Charcoal Detoxing is Complete BS
If you’ve turned on the TV, opened a magazine, or basically just been remotely conscious the past month, you’ve probably heard this popular word being tossed around: detox.
New Year’s detox diets are all the rage right now with health and wellness “experts” pushing their plans that will supposedly purify your desperately soiled system by cleansing the body of harmful “toxins” that you’ve somehow picked up over the holiday season.
No one is really clear about what these substances are or how our bodies became so riddled with them (candy canes perhaps?) but apparently the cure is flushing the body with massive doses of juice, raw foods, alkaline water, or today’s topic: charcoal.
Yup, today we’re talking about charcoal detoxing.
Have you heard of this before?
Supposedly taking charcoal supplements or drinking activated charcoal will help you get rid of all those sinister toxins that are jamming up your system.
If it sounds like a bunch of wack pseudo-science, that’s because it is.
Find out more — and why it is actually pretty dangerous — in the first video of my new YouTube series: The Sitch in Whit’s Kitch.
So, what do you think? Will you be chugging dirty black water this “detox season” or have I sufficiently scared you away from this ludicrous practice?
Want to know how to really get your body in tip top shape and functioning at its fullest capacity?
Feed it real foods. Avoid processed junk. Go easy on the sugar, alcohol, and fatty meat products.
