We’re back with Tony and I this week as we discuss a heavily talked about topic in not only the plant-based world but in our society in general today…protein! Today we delve into the truth about protein and everything you need to know to feel and look your best! We discuss all things protein-related and how it became the mainstream, go-to macronutrient in American diets believed to do everything from help us lose weight to give us energy.
But can you overdo protein?! (Hint…it’s a big huge YES!). We discuss how exceeding the minimum requirement of protein, which is very common in the Western diet, can lead to very aging and detrimental health effects. Finally, Tony and I discuss how the Beauty Detox Lifestyle provides more than enough protein to keep us healthy, toned and beautiful.
Next, my very special guest is Jen Gonzalez, who is a respected colon hydrotherapist. We talk candidly about poop and what colonics can do for you. We cover many frequently asked questions when it comes to this service. We also discuss how colon hydrotherapy could be potentially a really great tool for enhanced detoxification if (and that’s a big if!) administered properly by the right therapist and approached in the right way.
Jen also discusses how she got into colon cleansing and why she is so passionate about it. Jen shares information about her website, the "Doody-Free Girl". She has locations in New York City and northern New Jersey.

Detoxy+ is a nutritional supplement that helps cleanse your digestive and elimination organs of wastes and toxins in a gentle, yet effective way—without any of the drawbacks of typical laxatives or fiber supplements.
Detoxy+ is created by adding an oxygen molecule to magnesium—through the non-toxic process called ozonation—forming a compound called magnesium oxide. When you take the capsule, it dissolves and releases monatomic, or nascent, oxygen over a six to twelve hour period or more, throughout the entire digestive system.
The magnesium acts as a transporter of the oxygen throughout the entire body and has the gentle effect of loosening toxins and acidic waste in your colon, helping transport them out of the body via elimination. Oxygen, delivered in this way, supports the growth of friendly bacteria, which is essential for proper digestive and intestinal health.
Detoxy+ is safe for regular use and is non habit-forming. It can be helpful for anyone looking to increase their elimination and regularity, increase detoxification, reduce bloating or gas, and just feel lighter and healthier overall.
