Detox is a bunch of rubbish. If your body couldn't get rid of toxins then you would be dead.
Your health improvements have come along simply because you are eating right! Your body no longer has to expend as much energy breaking down things like alcohol and the damage that alcohol abuse can do is easy to see. This has absolutely nothing to do with detox, it is completely because you are eating better which means more vitamins and minerals, fibre, micro nutrients and the exercise is going to have tons of good effects.
Look sorry i don't mean to be rude but the detox stuff is absolute, complete, bunk. There is no proof for it working in peer reviewed journals, at least not double blind trials. The saunas are very good for your skin though, i've used those myself and my skin was noticeably better.

Shame on you
And to the OP S&F and Kudos for taking care of yourself it takes a lot of effort and awareness to reclaim your health. Your testimonial is extremely valuable, and you will give wings to many who are willing to make these important life changes.

I've looked at studies of various alternative therapies and agree they rarely show the significant statistical differences. But when people make that critical first step of becoming pro-active about their lifestyle we see radical improvements.
Detoxification by the liver and other processes are built into the system. But you can demand too much of your own body's abilities.
