Does your brain need to detox?

So many of us focus on “detoxing” at different times throughout the year.  Have you ever thought about your brain needing to detox?  Any part of our internal environment can accumulate waste material.  Each of our individual cells produces some waste.  So where does this go in the brain?  The body has an amazing system of flushing out the waste material from the brain.  This function is most active during sleep.  Restful sleep is a cheap and easy way to detox the brain!
