The benefits of Detoxification: lose weight, feel great, more energy, & prevent illness!




When it comes to detoxification, there is a lot of information out there, and MOST OF IT IS FALSE!  Most of the detox programs that you hear about (juice fasting, the master cleanse, etc.) don’t actually detoxify your body.  That’s not to say they aren’t beneficial, because they are!  But not for the reasons they would have you believe.  When you do a juice cleanse, you almost always feel better.  But is that because you successfully detoxified your body of chemicals, heavy metals, and other pollutants?  Not necessarily!


It’s more likely that you feel better after doing a juice fast because when you do one you are forced to eliminate a lot of the junk foods from your diet that were very likely causing many of the symptoms that you were experiencing!


And hey, I’m not knocking that!  There are definitely profound health benefits that can be had by eliminating foods from your diet that are causing inflammation and immune reactions!

The problem is that these diets don’t actually detoxify your body.  How do I know this?  Well, to understand WHY, we first have to understand what detoxification IS and what it ISN’T:


Detoxification IS:

  • Always happening – A chemical process that is happening in every human body 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days per year.

  • Conjugation – The process of mobilizing toxins from the blood stream into the liver, where the liver uses complex enzyme and antioxidant activity to change the toxin from a fat-soluble form to a water-soluble form for excretion through the bowels and urine.

  • Dependent on certain nutrients – A complex multi-pathway process which ABSOLUTELY REQUIRES certain nutrients to occur.  Those nutrients come from not just plants, but from healthy sources of fat and animal protein as well.  See the picture below to get an idea of the nutrients your liver needs to detoxify your body.

  • Easily disturbed – A process in the body that can EASILY become overwhelmed by the sheer level of toxicity that we constantly shovel into our bodies.  Pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides in the foods we eat.  Food additives, preservatives, artificial coloring.  Artificial sweeteners, sugar.  The hundreds of carcinogenic and endocrine-disrupting chemicals in the various household products, cosmetics, and sunscreens we use.  Air and water pollution.  Malnutrition and nutrient deficiencies.  gut dysfunction such as leaky gut.  These all serve to overload our livers with toxicity and frankly there is only so much that our livers can handle!

Detoxification ISN’T:

  • A “cleanse” – Cleanses can certainly help you clean out your gastrointestinal tract, but they don’t detoxify your body.

  • A colonic – See “cleanse” above.

  • A fast – fasting helps to calm inflammation and irritation in your intestinal tract.  It also helps to eliminate problematic foods from your diet that are causing a lot of your symptoms.  But it doesn’t help you DETOX!  In fact, fasting actually DEPRIVES your liver of many of the key nutrients it needs to perform the function of detoxification!

So now that we know what true detoxification is and isn’t, it’s easy to see how most of the detox programs out there aren’t really detoxes at all!


Gold Functional Wellness offers its clients TRUE guided detoxification programs coupled with elimination diets that lower inflammation in the gut, calm immune reactions, and unearth food sensitivities.  The elimination diet gradually removes foods from your diet that are known allergens and gut irritants.  After the elimination phase, you’ll be guided through a slow re-introduction phase designed to help you uncover any food sensitivities you might have.

While on our elimination diet, you’ll be using top-notch pharmaceutical-grade supplements that are specifically engineered to deliver the exact nutrients to your liver that it needs to perform TRUE detoxification in your body!


Equally important: when you purchase this detoxification program you’ll receive UNLIMITED email and/or text support for the duration from me, Rick Gold, President of Gold Functional Wellness.  As detailed as the information I provide is, I’ve never had a client go through one of these programs without having several questions for me about how to perform the detox and the elimination diet properly.  I will be there to answer all of your questions and give you the support you need in a timely fashion throughout the entire program.  This is my personal pledge to you!
