            Meet Lisa. Lisa is beautiful by almost any set of standards. Not too skinny, not pudgy, not frumpy at all, she has olive skin and big brown eyes. Like most women (all women?) she has some very particular complaints about her body and the way she feels. She doesn’t like her boobs (not perky enough), she feels like her ankles and calves are “way too thick” and most troubling to her are bouts of cystic acne and some intermittent discomfort in her gastro-intestinal tract, lovingly referred to as her “gut” from here on out.

        Every day our bodies naturally produce toxins and waste through digestion, breathing and basic metabolic functions.
