Besides the common discussion of it in the health and wellness industry, there’s actually a lot of misconceptions about the idea of detoxifying your body — mainly the fact that you’re probably already doing it naturally. “Your body has its own detoxification system that is constantly working,” says Serena Poon, chef, nutritionist and reiki master, and founder of Culinary Alchemy. “Technically you don’t need to do anything to make this system function.”

That said, Poon acknowledges the fact that occasionally your body’s detoxification system (your liver, kidneys, digestive system, respiratory system, and skin) might not be working as well as it should, and it’s in these times that certain foods or beverages may be able to give it a boost. “The benefit of foods and practices considered to be detoxifying is that they support your body’s innate capacity to rid itself of waste and toxins,” she explains. “Going on a ‘detox’ is much less about being on a specific diet and much more about helping these systems in operating at an optimal level.”
