One way to think about a dietary detox is the concept of “deep-cleaning.”

For example, most of us don’t deep-clean our refrigerator very often but once you do it looks like new again.  A periodic deep-clean is a chance to be reminded of the good food you do have and to discard the old food that no longer serves you.  Why would we keep spoiled food in our environment when all it does is occupy space for something more nutritious? Brassicas (broccoli, Brussel sprouts and cabbage), and alliums (onions, shallots, and leeks) contain sulfur compounds that activate liver enzymes for proper detoxification.  There comes a point when it makes sense to do a dietary deep-cleanse.

A Customized Detox program with Dr. Clara

Do you have a habit of eating the same thing every day or at least several times a week?  Do you wonder or suspect that certain foods don't agree with you?  It might be time for you to give your body a break from your routine and introduce other nutrients.  Good nutrition depends both on what you eat and how often you eat it.

Mindful eating with Dr. Barnett

Is mindfulness another term for appreciation?  Culturally, we’re entering into an important time of giving thanks.  We become increasingly mindful of being grateful.  But gratitude can happen as often as we take a breath.  Some say that it’s impossible to feel worried or fear if you are in a grateful mindset.

Drug store products vs clinical skincare

Have you ever found yourself at the drugstore contemplating which skincare products to purchase and will actually make a difference on your skin?  Shopping at a drugstore for basic cleansers, moisturizers, body washes, and simple acne spot treatments can be a good inexpensive option, but I recommend taking a look at the ingredients before walking away with one.
