Detoxifying Beet Soup


  • Kelly Porter says:

    How gentle is this detox ? Is there an age recommendation ?

    • Dr.Lam says:

      It is considered mild, but if your body is sensitive or weak, then you need to dilute the soup and start small amount and gradually titrate up. It is quite good for brain fog as it rebalances the gut and stablize the gut brain axis. Click Gut Brain Axis for more information.
