Live Like An Athlete: Detox Does A Body Good

By Erin Sharoni | CBSSports.com staff

It turns out that LeBron James is human, after all. Just like us mere mortals, he too can go down with a killer cramp in a hot room.

While we may not be able to say exactly what caused King James' charley horse in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, it's certainly safe to say that maintaining a clean, hydrated, balanced body can help to prevent all sorts of performance problems.

Detoxification is one of the most important steps on any path to improved physical function. Keeping a motor humming means using clean fuel, but also having a clean system through which that fuel can flow. Detox is more than just a green-smothie diet trend; it's a critical element of performance, athletic or otherwise.

Top physician Dr. Jeffrey Morrison specializes in detoxification, applying his detox protocol to treat and reverse the effects of everything from common ailments to degenerative diseases. His patients -- athletes and mortals alike -- benefit from following the principles outlined in Dr. Morrison's regimen. A focus on mindfulness for stress reduction is key, as is attention to nutrition, supplementation, hydration and sleep.

For more from Dr. Morrison, head over to his website www.morrisonhealth.com, visit him in New York City or on Twitter at @MorrisonHealth. His book, Cleanse Your Body, Clear Your Mind, is available on Amazon and in bookstores.
