GP’s Picks: Therapeutic My Physique with a Longer-Time period Detox



  1. Intuitive fasting from Will Cole

All jokes aside (no, 2021 wasn’t the easiest year to get January dry), I felt energized, healthier and, believe it or not, wanted more. I will continue to expand this focus throughout the first quarter.

A little background: I had COVID-19 early on and it left some long-tailed fatigue and brain fog. In January I had some tests done which showed very high levels of inflammation in my body. So I turned to one of the brightest experts I know in the field, the functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Will Cole. After seeing all of my labs, he stated that this was a case where the path to healing would be longer than usual.

So we’ve created a version of a protocol that he outlines in his upcoming book, Intuitive Fasting. It’s keto and plant-based, but flexible (I’ve eaten fish and a few other meats), and I fast until 11 a.m. every day. I’m used to cleanings now – like the six day OWL Venice bone broth cleanse I did in January – but something that spins more freely like Will’s plan was definitely more of an adjustment. I’ve cooked a lot and some of it is really tasty: I recently made scallops with crispy capers and sage, asparagus with bacon vinaigrette, and a couple of small artichokes with stuffed herbs and garlic. I even found a great sugar-free kimchi (Madge’s vegan daikon kimchi – it’s amazing) and a sugar-free kombucha, and I have used a lot of coconut aminos in my recipes. Will gives you the guidelines and lots of recipes, but you have a little more control over yourself and I hope this helps me develop lasting habits.

There’s no sugar and of course no alcohol, so I’ve done a lot of research and found some great things to support my work. One of my favorites is Seedlip – the incredible herbal non-alcoholic cocktails really scratch the itch at the end of the day (or the itch I need at dinner or the whining before the roar of fire one or the laughs with girlfriends) for me. There are three flavors (I especially love Garden 108) and all of them are sugar free with no calories. I like it in a double, old-fashioned diamond pattern glass, lemon and a splash of sparkling water. It is so good.

Will has also provided me with nutritional supplements, most of them for a healthier gut: there’s butyrate, which Will says supports a healthy microbiome, and then I get Madame Ovary fish oil, B vitamins, and some vitamin in my daily dietary supplement D3 (I. add more, but there’s 500 IU in there to start), Selenium, and Zinc, which Will says are critical to me right now. I get even more zinc and selenium together with the antioxidants vitamin C and resveratrol in my G.Tox Detoxifying Superpowder, which I mix with water. Will lets me take G.Tox in the morning and in the evening.

  1. Everything I do feels good, like a gift to my body. I have energy, I work out in the morning and I do an infrared sauna as often as I can, all in the service of healing. A side effect is my skin, which makes me happy – and makes me double down on my skin care routine even more. Let’s make 2021 the year we never need makeup, guys!

  2. I see a real difference when I use vitamin C serum in the morning – a difference in glow. It stands out that people have asked me what I use and that is about zoom!

  3. The secret formula – at least for my skin – is to combine the vitamin C (smooth down, then wait a moment) with our new face oil. I’ve always been interested in oils, but this one has amazing clinical results: you see fewer wrinkles, firmer skin, softer skin. But layer it over the vitamin C serum and I’ll tell you the glow is the next level. Do this every morning and your skin will definitely look great.

  4. Then the foundation on which everything works – always – is my super strong peeling with 15% glycolic acid once a week (I do it on Sunday evening). And right now it’s even more important when you can’t get to the dermatologist or facial doctor. You rub the bowl on clean skin and go to bed. You’ve taken care of your skin for a full week – you wake up, wash your face, and examine your skin in the mirror. Its worth it!

  5. Moving your body and sweating out toxins naturally makes a huge difference. But aside from the benefits of a sauna and even my favorite exercises, I know that when I go hiking, I get something different – stimulating my brain and body in ways I can’t get otherwise. Nature really heals!

    I’m obsessed with Hoka boots, especially this pair.

  6. I love wearing something that is easy to layer and (importantly) can move on to a zoom call when I end up spending more time hiking than originally planned (guilty) like this sleek tank.

  7. The chain is just me. I can’t go out without a necklace. I like to carry several at once, but this one is perfect for a hike. And it gives me a bit of shine for that Zoom call that I’m late for.

  8. This t-shirt is my favorite thing. I put it on, put it on – I wear it all the time

  9. Finally, I turn to the people I don’t see every day. It’s been almost a year; We all need encouragement to move on – and to walk a healthier path. This wellness care package includes liposomal vitamin C, herbal tea and manuka honey, plus one of the most incredible memories you have ever read and some fantastic essential oil blends. I’ve mailed it to almost everyone I can think of – it’s such a lovely unwrapping gift.

  10. When a full care package doesn’t work on budget, this bathroom is another of my favorite gifts that I send out with a similar feeling.

  2. These babies really work – that’s all I can say. And they taste like the best chocolate mint ever. I can start having them when I start simplifying the protocol and I can’t wait.

  3. This is magic for your pores. I use it every morning in the shower: it’s a frothy, fresh combination of malachite and fruit acids that sweeps everything away and makes my skin baby soft and – no kidding – practically porous.
