Doctor Warns Against Detoxing For The New Year

If you’re in the middle of doing a detox, or thinking about doing one to start off your New Year, you might want to think again.


A doctor from Dublin has admitted that he has been admitting patients to his hospital ‘every single night of the week’ because they have been trying to do a health detox too quickly.

Speaking to the Irish Times, Professor Donal O’Shea is warning people that taking extreme approaches to a new you can lead to irregular heartbeats, collapse and even death.

This comes as the British Medical Journal publishes details of the case of a 47 year old woman who developed a potentially life-threatening complication after a detox plan.

Professor Donal O’Shea is reminding people that there’s no such thing as a quick fix, so maybe try and ease yourself in slowly.

Try and incorporate lots more fruit and vegetables into your diet, rather than cutting absolutely everything out.
