‘Tis the season for detoxification! After all of the hustle and bustle (and cookies and cakes) of the holiday season, many people enter January with the mindset of getting healthy again. Whether this means getting back on track with their regular health regime or starting fresh with something new and exciting, one thing a lot of people turn to in order to get healthier is detoxification.
