Are you getting enough fiber?

One simple way you can boost your natural detox processes is to eat more vegetables and fruit. The fiber they contain acts like a broom that sweeps away our waste from the inside out.

Sophia's Practical Nontoxic Skincare Strategy

Getting informed is tricky business. Generally, the more I learn, the more conflicting factors I have to reconcile and balance.
