While some people equate a detox with a fast, the two aren’t synonymous. Unless you are fasting, you may need to eat more to relieve some of your symptoms. Remember, however, to stick with detoxing foods like fresh fruit, leafy green vegetables, and seeds. Cilantro, parsley, alfalfa, and a blue-green algae , chlorella, are three extremely powerful chemical and heavy metal chelators. Dark green vegetables and herbs alkalize and purify the blood, making it easier for the body to rid itself of wastes with less discomfort or “healing crisis”.
