Open-minded doctor, passionate about detox and cleansing.
Founder of the Clean Program, Dr.Junger was born in Uruguay. He graduated from medical school there in 1990 and moved to New York City for his postgraduate training. He completed three years of training in Internal Medicine at NYU Downtown Hospital and three more years of fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases at Lenox Hill Hospital.The drastic change in lifestyle and diet resulting from his move to NYC soon showed up as irritable bowel syndrome and depression. Becoming a patient of the system he was practicing was such a shock, that it started his journey in search of an alternative solution to his health problems.His findings are the subject of his first book, Clean: The Revolutionary Program To Restore the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal Itself, where Dr. Junger describes how he became aware of the toxicity of our planet. He explains how detoxification and cleansing have been around for thousands of years, and right now it’s more important than ever to reclaim this information.

The gut. That’s where all the health magic (or challenges!) begins. Alejandro Junger is a cardiologist turned functional medicine doctor who created the incredibly popular Clean Program. We covered his first book Clean and now for a spotlight on the Clean Gut. Big Ideas we explore include symptoms vs. root causes (paint any brown leaves green lately?), how food’s shelf life correlates with yours, your 2nd brain, nutrigenomics, gluten (the ubiquitous poison) and step 1 to cleaning things up (hint: remove toxic triggers).
Are you feeling a little funky? There’s a very good chance that your body’s detox systems are overworked and could use a little re-start! And, helping you do that wisely is pretty much what Dr. Alejandro Junger’s great book is all about. In this Note, we take a look at what’s creating all that toxicity and what you can do about it!
