Health truly begins with excellent digestion. When digestion is impaired due to reactions to the food you consume, not only is digestion affected, it slows down transit times, reducing effective elimination which increases your toxicity levels. Eliminating these known inflammatory, allergenic and toxic-loading foods will improve your digestion in the long term and for the duration of your detox period. To enhance your detox capability consider these 8 Foods to Eliminate to Improve Your Digestion…
