Our bodies, their parts, (and how they are functioning), usually with a focus based around food and exercise, tend to be the motivation of wellness and care. Cleanses, or detox programs have become increasingly popular in health culture and the emphasis on extreme eating (or lack there of), supplemental nutritional products and austere practices are often attention grabbers.
