Many times in our lives, it is necessary to remove toxic influences that are affecting us. While one blog post is way too short to cover all toxic aspects of life (pollution, work stress, negative people, etc.), Detox your body through healthy eating + detoxification + Yoga. Carrie Johnson is an international blogger and yoga teacher who is a colleague of Dr. Katie Strobe and is our guest blogger today. She is joining Detox with the Doctor (DWD) for the first time and has graciously put together a yin digestion yoga sequence and Spotify playlist as an extra benefit for DWD participants.

Your body has five major organs of elimination. In a detox, the liver, gut, kidneys, lungs and skin need to function in top shape so the body can get rid of toxins. If the body cannot get rid of toxic compounds quickly, they remain in the body, causing damage to our DNA which impairs cell function.
If you are considering a detox, it’s a great idea to have an evaluation with a qualified healthcare provider to ensure your liver, gut, kidneys, lungs and skin are supported in the process. Dr. Claire Graser, ND creates holistic detoxification plans with patients at San Francisco Natural Medicine in Potrero Hill. To schedule appointment call 415-643-6600.
