The best thing for detox is coffee enemas (you can find plenty of sites that explain how to DIY by googling). Just make sure to use organic coffee.

SOUNDS DELICIOUS! I have some hazelnut oil that I may need to try that with! As far as safety, yeah, you are fine. Walnut oil is good up to about 400 degrees or so. Hot coffee is no problem.

You can blend butter and coconut oil into tea. Seems to be something that everyone overlooks is the freshness factor. The real point of bulletproof coffee is to avoid mycotoxins that develop through certain processing techniques and storage. Not... (more)

Keep in mind Dave Asprey is a salesman not a clinician. That said if you are on a ketogenic or near-ketogenic diet, like Asprey suggests, Omega 6 aren't quite the issues they are with higher-carb diets.
