Your Food, Your Medicine: Detox (2009)

Episode 11
Available worldwide

The way we live taxes the mind and the body. So unless you’re careful, your entire system might become toxic. Too much rich food can do it as easily as too much junk food. And it doesn’t just have to be an overdose of coffee, cigarettes, alcohol or lack of exercise.

So at some stage you’ll have to address the problem – preferably sooner rather than later. If you don’t, you run the risk of becoming toxic, and this can definitely prove a threat to your survival.

If you haven’t tried it before, detox may sound bland. But actually, it can be quite a surprise.

Set of Four Medicinal Dishes for Detox: Shoyu Poached Sea Perch with Ginger and Lime Mayonnaise; Sweet and Sour Vegetables with Tofu; Steamed Chinese Broccoli Greens with Umeboshi Dressing; Black Bean Biryani.
