What Does it it Mean to “Detox?”

Your DNA are not engraved stone tablets.

Every moment – of every day – they are in constant communication with your thoughts, your environment, what you eat, what you drink and the very air you breathe.

How your genes are expressed are connected to all those subtle intersections of your physical material, your intellectual life, your social life, your physical life and your spiritual life.

In this time of year, we will hear a lot about “Detox”-ing. And I applaud the notion of cleaning out the old and making room for the new. And the we all have tremendous capacities for moving ourselves towards the best possible versions of ourselves.

Detoxification can mean many things, but to focus on removing toxins from the body, it is helpful to know how the body actually takes away the bad stuff. The “organs of elimination” are known as the Emmunctories. Since this is not a term everyone knows, we made this silly video.

The body actively will get rid of toxins through the Emmunctories. Healthy, whole foods what give the Emmunctories what they need to carry the toxins out.

If you are looking for a safe Detox – we developed a 10-day whole food protocol called the Taste Bud Boot Camp. It offers an eating road map that will help you re-shape your relationship to food. You can access it here.

Take advantage of the moment that comes with the end of one year and the beginning of a new. Tell us what you are thinking about and hoping for and wrestling with.

The Modern Revolution is just beginning.
