I would like to detoxify myself. How do I go about it?

I have suffered from chronic sinus headaches - we're talking daily headaches - they never go away, postnasal drip (yuck!), and a chronic stuffy nose for most of my life. I am also always tired/fatigued.
I wonder if my troubles aren't related somehow to food allergies/sensitivities. So, I would like to clean my slate, detoxify my innards, and just start over. How do I go about doing this? Do I fast? And if so, for how long? Is it still ok to drink water (or anything) during this detoxification?
After I've fully detoxed myself, then what? How do I reintroduce food into my diet? And what foods do I reintroduce and at what pace?
I'm a 32 year old female well within a healthy weight.
