How Do You Cleanse Your Body

Replacing your roof would cost a lot of money. But who would want to see a discolored, algae-rich roofs? None. It can make your house unsightly. Do you know what else lives on your roof? Moss. They can shorten the lifespan of your roof.

Nowadays, people are on a tight budget. Prices have been consistently rising up. Even construction materials! But you want your home to become beautiful. So, what is the cheapest solution to it? That's right, cleaning and maintenance is the cheapest alternative to make your home look good!

Let us look at another side, selling your house would mean that you would have to clean it, right? That is because buyers would want to see everything clean and if they found out that they don't have to do anything else, besides added decoration, the chance of buying the property would greatly increase.

It is a common household task to clean everything inside as well as outside. However, most people forget to maintain their roof. It may be a heavy and huge task for some, but it is really worth it!

So, how do you clean your roof? Here are some things for you to know.

1. Find out what type of roof you have. You can call your roof manufacturer for some cleaning advice and what chemical solutions to use.
2. Avoid using chlorine bleach solution. It can discolor most roofs and it can kill your plants because you need to wash it off your roof. It can also corrode metal, such as the gutter and downspouts if you did not wash them properly. Always use non-toxic chemical solutions.
3. Brushing your roof is also good but do not use hard brushes and steel brushes. Also, do not brush your roof too hard. Both can remove shingle granules.
4. Pressure washing is not a good choice in cleaning your roof. Especially if it is a shingle-type roof. It can dislodge or even remove your shingles. Therefore, a low pressure washing is the most recommended method of cleaning a roof.
5. If you're going to clean your roof, you need to wear the following for your safety: gloves, non-skid shoes or boots, and goggles.

As I have said, to most people, this a heavier task to do. So if you are one of them or you do not have time to do the cleaning, call a reliable and professional roof cleaning company. They should inspect your roof first so that they can apply the necessary cleaning method. They can also check your roof if it needs replacing or not.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How fast does proactiv's deep cleansing body wash work?
    Does the proactiv deep cleansing body wash work? If so how long does it take for it to work? This is for moderate to mild body acne. Also, if used with the body pads and/or body lotion by proactiv will this make it work faster too?

    • ANSWER:
      I've been in that situation and there is really nothing you can do about it. There are things you can do to try to reduce the blemishes and get rid of acne temporarily but you will always be finding yourself cleaning your face or your body depending on where it's at.

      I mean of course your acne should go away eventually but for some this is the case their whole life.

      I'm 29 years old and have been suffering from these little pests since I was a teenager. I tried all sorts of face washes from the local grocery store and what not, but nothing seemed to work. If anything it would just make my skin dry and itchy.

      Literally the best acne face wash I've ever used has been this stuff called clearpores. It has got rid of the acne to quickest and has been a success ever since I got it. It's unique cause of it's herbal supplement you take a long with it that helps your skin from the inside out. I saved money on it at skincleansingsystem.com at the time which was helpful.

      You should really look into this stuff and if you can to assure the best results, get the 3 month supply because if it doesn't work it will still save you butt on the return policy.

      Well good luck and best wishes.

  2. QUESTION:
    How do I cleanse my body of impurities and fat?
    I am wanting to cleanse my body of impurities and fat. How do I go about doing that?

    • ANSWER:
      i guess you have reade something about that or seen on tv?
      there is no need to do anything special - your body is cleansing itself with dietary fiber you get mostly from fruit and veggies.
      find calorie/fitness calculator on the net, enter all your stats and it will tell you how many calories you need a day to maintain, take off 300-400cal off that number and thats how much you need to lose.
      eat 5-6 small meals a day (eat every 2-3 hours)
      5-8 servings of fruit and veggies a day
      8 glasses of water
      have complex carbs for breakfast - they give you energy
      have lean meat (protein) for dinner - repairs muscle
      cardio exercise 4-6 times a week for 30-50min, light weight training
      dont consume foods that are made of white flour (white bread, cakes, past etc.), sugar loaded foods (cookies, icecream, candy etc) and nothing fried, oily.
      ofcourse you can spoil yourself once in a while with a little treat:)

  3. QUESTION:
    What do the chinese mean when they say to eat something to cleanse your body?
    I am half Chinese, and one day I was at the market and I saw these huge blocks of duck blood apparently and my dad said, we eat those to cleanse our body. I don't understand what he means by cleanse. Any ideas??
    I am trying to build some body mass. So should I add duck blood in my diet?

    • ANSWER:
      When chinese say cleanse body, they usually means by eating the food, it can remove toxic within our body.

      Clearing bowel is one of the way.

      For body mass, you need tons of carbo and protein food along with exercise to shape up your body.

      Edit:
      To all non Chinese out there claiming that TCM (traditional chinese medicine) and stuff are rubbish, please note that TCM are around for few hundreds of years. Those TCM products that are really beneficial for bodies. Although there are a lot of scams products out there, one should not deny the benefits of TCM.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best pill to take to cleanse your body?
    What is the best pill to cleanse your body.

    • ANSWER:
      Detox pills, and detoxification and cleansing in general, are neither useful nor necessary unless you have had long-term narcotic use or are chronically constipated. Detoxification and cleansing has no proven medical benefits for the average person whatsoever. It will NOT help you lose any significant amount of fat. Your intestines are clean unless you use large amounts of muscle relaxers, or have serious digestive illness.

      The only thing that will help you lose weight is a healthy lifestyle that consists of a proper diet and frequent exercise.

  10. QUESTION:
    How do I cleanse my body of THC and increase my chances of passing a drug test?
    I am 15 years old and weigh approximately 118 pounds. The last time I smoked was last thursday and I'm a daily marijuana smoker. I'm pretty thin so I can imagine I have a fast metabolism. I'm going to give a urine sample tomorrow, so please, give me any advice as to how to cleanse my body.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm no expert but I'd say that you'd be OK so long as you don't smoke any more before the test. If you really want to be sure, drinks a lot of water, drink lots of coffee and maybe even take a weak diuretic (don't overdo it, you don't want that showing up and raising eyebrows).

      I think to detect marijuana after that long a period they would have to take fat and blood samples. But I could be wrong.

  11. QUESTION:
    Is there some way to naturally detox or cleanse your body?
    Is there some way to naturally detox or cleanse your body?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a lot of hype around "detoxing" and "cleansing" these days. Most of what you'll hear is untrue, and can be just a waste of your time and money. There’s no evidence that detoxing and cleansing has any health benefit. Nonetheless, there are lifestyle changes you can make to “detox” your body. Cutting back on saturated fats, daily calories, refined grains, sugar, and sodium can help you reap all kinds of health benefits. Instead, choose fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy, lean protein, seafood, and healthy fats.

    Hi Everyone, Just wuit smoking and quit coffee its tough but worth it and was wondering if anyone knows a good natural method of cleansing the body out? will any type of food or spice help?

    • ANSWER:
      Do you mean the outside of your body or the inside?

      FOr the outside of your body I recommend this all natural cleanser, organic: Dr. Bronner's
      http://www.drbronner.com/faqs_main.html#faq1

      The soaps are great for everything, cleaning your body, hair, the house, laundry.. etc and they smell great due to the essential oil used.
      -------------------

      For the inside of your body (detox) I recommend regularly ingesting any of the following:
      - clean water.. avoid soda, alcohol, etc.. also drink it at room temperature or warmer
      - vinegar (cleans out the body)
      - cayenne pepper (opens the blood vessels and thins the blood to allow for faster cleanse)
      - garlic: (kills bacteria)
      - cabbage: (cleans out the intestines due to high fiber content)
      - fresh fruit and veggies (cleans out the intestines due to high fiber content)
      - oatmeal and plenty of other grains (cleans out the intestines due to high fiber content)

    Is a water fasting detox diet good to cleanse out your body?
    I really want to cleanse my body of toxins but don't want to gain any weight when i'm off it. should i still do it to clean out my body?

    • ANSWER:
      Your body doesn't need 'cleaning out'. We are not full of toxins, it's a myth.
      Eat a sensible diet and your body will look after itself.
      We have skin, lungs, liver and kidneys doing the job and the colon is self cleansing.
      The 'cleaning out' routines do more harm than good.

      If you must do it water is far better than some of the dubious concoctions online that result in diarrhoea, electrolyte imbalance and a damaged gut.

    How can I reduce how much time I spend in the shower?
    I'm trying to "go green" but I always end up spending 20+ min. in the shower. Here's my routine:
    Wet hair/body, shampoo hair, cleanse face, rinse hair, condition hair, shave legs, rinse hair, cleanse body.
    I will admit, there are times that I will just stand there because the hot water feels nice, and I've been getting in the habit of not doing that anymore. But other than that, what other ways can I cut down on how much time I spend in the shower?

    • ANSWER:
      get a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner, that way, you only rinse your hair once. Don't shave constantly in the shower, you can shave somewhere else as well. Turn off water when soaping and stuff, just turn it on when washing it off. There is always the hippie way, don't shower that often, but I wouldn't recommend it.

  28. QUESTION:
    What is THE Best Way to Cleanse Your Body?
    Just as the question asks: What is the best way to cleanse your body of toxins? (internal and external -- if any)

    Also, as a secondary question, what is the best way to clean your skin of deep dirt? (besides the basic answers "shower/bath" and "soap and water" lol)

    • ANSWER:
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon. If our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      Our kidneys filter 50 gallons of fluids a day. And the liver filters 500 gallons a day! They are the detox superheroes. They send most of these toxins to your bladder.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, lean meats, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Commercial cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search gut flora to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population with a flush cleanse.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  29. QUESTION:
    How do I make a good home made body detox/cleanse?
    I want to detox / cleanse my body. I heard a lot of fat and toxins are stored and it's a good way to rid the body of you cleanse or detox. Are there any home made cleansing syrups or drinks you can make? What are the ingredients and how often to you drink them and for what length of time?

    • ANSWER:
      Your diet can be your detox! Eating a frugivore diet is the best way to help regenerate cells and restore great health. Reversing acidosis is the #1 choice for true detoxing. When we eat a diet consisting of 80% (of total calories daily) fruit, 15% greens and 5% good fats, we alkalize our bodies. If a person is very acidic and sufferers with dis-ease, they may also want to add some herbs or pure herbal formulas.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detoxify your body at home?
    What is the best possible way to cleanse my body/clear the colon of toxins or to detoxify due to stressors, pollutants, toxins, and other such things?

    • ANSWER:
      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.

  31. QUESTION:
    What is a good NATURAL way to cleanse and detox my body?
    I don't want a diet! I just would like to cleanse my body of all the toxins and bad stuff to feel re-energized and healthy
    I don't want a diet! (However if the detox does have weight loss effects that's ok, just making it clear that i am not specifically looking for a weight loss detox)
    I just would like to cleanse my body of all the toxins and bad stuff to feel re-energized and healthy.

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxing is a myth (not to be confused with physician supervised drug detoxification). It is an idea that was never backed by science but by companies selling scam products. Look into it through reputable sources of information and don't waste your money. Just eat healthy, exercise and your body takes take of foreign and undesireable substances on its own.

  32. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know a healthy way of detoxing the body? I want to detox before I start my workout rountine?
    I heard that if you detox your body, you can lose alot of weight, or at a least water weight. I want to cleanse my body first and get all the waste out before I start my new diet. But I don't want to try anything weird or expensive. Something simple and something that won't taste gross.

    • ANSWER:
      Keep it simple. Believe me I've tried quite a few.

      I tried a raw food diet- that was very effective but scary. I felt like a walking compost heap!(hehe). I also cut out tea and coffee. I was on a weird high for ages and had a bit of a headache. You don't realise the everyday gunk you put in your body that you simply don't need unless you detox.

      Anyway, on a more positive note, this is what I suggest.

      A detox is best done over a period of 48 hrs before beginning a sensible diet plan.

      I suggest small snack like meals of fruit and veg. Only fresh food and small portions.

      Breakfast- Banana and fruit smoothie, glass of water.

      mid morning- an orange or apple and a low cal nutrient bar. Glass of hot water with a slice of lemon.

      Lunch- tuna and salad and a low cal dressing- no bread or pots. A mug of good quality shop bought soup - the fresh variety with plenty of veg in it.

      Afternoon- a few raisins. A couple of pieces of 75%or more dark chocolate. Cup of tea with skimmed milk or coffee.

      Supper- Steamed chicken or lean meat with vegetable stir-fry.

      You get the idea. Try and eat mostly fruit and veg and drink loads of water. Keep it tasty and simple though.

    • ANSWER:
      Drink lots of water, and eat lots of fiber and vegetables.

      There is no need to actively "cleanse" your digestive system, you body will do that for you. I recommend NOT taking a fiber supplement, such as psyllium seed husk, unless you are having persisent digestive problems.

  35. QUESTION:
    What are the best foods to eat to detox your body, to get ready for a diet?
    I've been on a diet for a while now, and I have not seen any results. I did not detox or cleanse my body before I started. Is that the reason I have failed? Will cleansing my system help with the weight loss?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know if detoxing your body will help you achieve your dieting goals, but cranberry juice is a good detoxer. Are you exercising as well? One of the key components to losing weight is using more calories than you consume, so that your body has to take the extra needed calories (your body's energy source) from your fat cells. So my suggestion is just eat low calorie food, and exercise a lot. Ride a bike or walk to school or work instead of drive. Go for a jog instead of watch TV. Or find something you enjoy doing that is physically active, for me it is playing sports..

      sex is a good (and fun!) form of exercise as well, there is even something called sexercise where you purposely do difficult positions and other things like that to make your sex more of a workout. Look it up.
      Also, don't expect to lose 20 pounds instantly. Losing weight in a healthy manner is a slow process. If you lose 2 pounds a week your doing darn good! Make a plan and stick to it, you can do it!

    What are some ways to give your body a fresh start?
    What are some ways to rid your body of toxins/bad things?

    I want to completely start over and cleanse my body so it can have a fresh start. Besides drinking water, what are some ways to completely replenish/refresh/restart yourself (anything, really. Just no marketing scams. I don't want to have to spend money on this or anything).

    and once I do, what are things I should keep from consuming, etc?

    • ANSWER:
      I am glad someone cares that much about there body and wants to be heathy =) here are somethings to eat to re fresh your body
      Green leafy vegetables Eat them raw, throw them into a broth, add them to juices. Their chlorophyll helps swab out environmental toxins (heavy metals, pesticides) and protects the liver.

      Lemons You need to keep the fluids flowing to wash out the body and fresh lemonade is ideal. Its vitamin C, considered the detox vitamin, helps convert toxins into a water-soluble form that's easily flushed away.

      Watercress Put a handful into salads, soups, and sandwiches. The peppery little green leaves have a diuretic effect that helps move things through your system. And cress is rich in minerals too.

      Garlic Add it to everything -- salads, sauces, spreads. In addition to the bulb's cardio benefits, it activates liver enzymes that help filter out junk.

      Green tea This antioxidant-rich brew is one of the healthiest ways to get more fluids into your system. Bonus: It contains catechins, which speed up liver activity.

      Broccoli sprouts Get 'em at your health-food store. They pack 20 to 50 times more cancer-fighting, enzyme-stimulating activity into each bite than the grown-up vegetable.

      Sesame seeds They're credited with protecting liver cells from the damaging effects of alcohol and other chemicals. For a concentrated form, try tahini, the yummy sesame seed paste that's a staple of Asian cooking.

      Cabbage There are two main types of detoxifying enzymes in the liver; this potent veggie helps activate both of them. Coleslaw, anyone?

      Psyllium A plant that's rich in soluble fiber, like oat bran, but more versatile. It mops up toxins (cholesterol too) and helps clear them out. Stir powdered psyllium into juice to help cleanse your colon, or have psyllium-fortified Bran Buds for breakfast.

      Fruits, fruits, fruits They're full of almost all the good things above: vitamin C, fiber, nutritious fluids, and all kinds of antioxidants. Besides, nothing tastes better than a ripe mango, fresh berries, or a perfect pear.

  37. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detoxify your body?
    What is the best possible way to cleanse my body/clear the colon of toxins or to detoxify due to stressors, pollutants, toxins, and other such things?

    • ANSWER:
      Your own body is very efficient at doing this on it's own. Detox diets, flushes and cleanses are scams, not without risks.

  38. QUESTION:
    How much water is needed in order to rehydrate the body from drinking a cup of caffeinated beverage?
    In order to cleanse the body of impurities and caffeine
    Please provide with a source

    • ANSWER:
      All water intake counts equally including coffee and alcoholic drinks as any diuretic effect is minimal or non-existent; once accustomed to caffeinated drinks, these count and act as any other water intake.
      http://www.lsbu.ac.uk/water/health.html

      You may be surprised to learn that caffeinated beverages are
      not dehydrating, as is commonly believed. A 2004 report from
      the IOM concluded that caffeine-containing beverages such as
      regular coffee, tea and soft drinks contribute to total daily water
      intake, similar to beverages without caffeine. Although caffeine
      has a mild diuretic effect, it does not generally contribute to
      dehydration because the fluid in the beverage itself cancels out
      any fluid loss from the body. In fact, all beverages have a mild
      diuretic effect, even water. http://www.ific.org/publications/brochures/hydrationbro.cfm

      Studies have also shown that caffeine in amounts typical of a cup of coffee or tea or a cola drink do not have a dehydrating effect, so experts now agree that normal caffeine containing drinks can contribute to total water requirements. http://www.eufic.org/article/en/health-and-lifestyle/physical-activity/artid/water-balance-fluids-hydration/

      This article talks about a fairly recent study, that I'll bet is the basis for the entries above. It showed that the diuretic effects of coffee were on a par with drinking the same amount of water. Further, "Investigations comparing caffeine with water or placebo seldom found a statistical difference in urine volume, the author wrote. “In the 10 studies reviewed, consumption of a caffeinated beverage resulted in 0 to 84 percent retention of the initial volume ingested, whereas consumption of water resulted in 0 to 81 percent retention.”
      http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/04/health/nutrition/04real.html

      Finally, one that recommends rehydrating after coffee (the only one I could find) I would question whether it came before or after the research above: If you drink Coffee, Tea or Alcohol, you need to have 2 glasses of water for every coffee, tea or alcoholic drink you consume. http://www.wellness-decisions.com/hydration.html

    What is the best and most affordable way to do a body detox?
    I'm looking to do a body detox to cleanse my body of chemicals etc (not drugs or alcohol) To start clean and fresh.

    What is the best method? I'm not looking for some expensive product or spam please.

    • ANSWER:
      go vegan for a week that would detox your system

      green leafy vegetables, avoid the starchy ones is possible

      lots of fruits and lots of water

      drink a glass or water and 2 tbs of lemon juice the first thing in the morning when you wake up

  43. QUESTION:
    What are good ways to detox body after quitting smoking?
    I've been drinking heaps of green tea and water. Do you think this is enough.

    If i cleanse my body like this, is there a chance that the nicotine will get out of my body quicker?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all... Congrats on taking this step.

      Smoking means smoke and nicotine enters blood directly from the lungs. The lungs get coated or accumulate smog, ash, nicotine burns..etc.

      Abdominal breathing, pranayama, deep breathing... these will help to eject much of the collected smog. We all are lazy breathers and deep breathing needs to be learnt.
      This is a sure way of detoxification of lungs to eject residual nicotine.

      Exercise, sweating, proper eating helps remove the deposited 'smokers ash' collected below the skin... chain smokers get yellow/pale skin patches..

      Most important, keep that positive attitude.. detox the mind and stay strong.. Best wishes

  44. QUESTION:
    Is niacin plus a lot of Water and Cranberry Juice enough to Detoxify your body?
    If I start taking 100 mg(or a higher doesage) of niacin plus start drinking ALOT of Cranberry jucie and water for around 1 week enough to cleanse your body of THC. I AM trying to pass drug tests but I have approxiamtley 1 week or more before i am tested.

    • ANSWER:
      No, it will not help to clean THC out of your system and aside from the water, that's not going to detox at all.
      Niacin is a simple B vitamin that gives a "flushing effect" to your skin... not to your body. It makes your skin turn red (it makes your skin flush) because it helps with circulation. It won't burn your intestines (unless you're highly allergic to it), especially in that low of a dose... but it might turn your skin bright red.
      Cranberry juice just helps to make your urine a bit more acidic so it can help to cleanse out a Urinary Tract Infection... it doesn't specifically detox your body.

  45. QUESTION:
    What is a cleansing fast, and how do I do it safely without taking any medication?
    My friend and I have been eating way too much of the nasty/unhealthy things, and we decided that we wanted to cleanse our bodies/detox. And I need a good plan or something of that nature. We do not want to take any supplements, or something to help us along. Preferably longer than a week something that builds on itself. You know what I mean?

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      This is what I do and really works great.

      First off, stay away from meat, sea foods, cheese, milk, butter, white bread, rice and pasta. Instead eat plenty of raw vegetables such as celery, carrot, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, avocado, salad or any other favorite vegetables and salads that you love. For carb - eat whole wheat bread, brown rice, whole wheat pasta in moderation. For protein eat avocado and/or fresh beans that you prepare at home. This is how to do prepare the fresh beans. Soak the beans for two hours in water and then drain and boil it until tender. Add your favorite seasonings, tomato, garlic olive oil and cook it a few more minutes. With this method, you can do similar dishes from whole lentils, chick peas and etc...

      Drink apple cider vinegar mixed with water at least once a day. Drink hot tea made of just honey and lemon. Don't drink sodas, juice etc... Just drink purified warm water if you can. That certainly washes all the toxins out of your body. Iced cold water will not do that. It just makes everything stagnant in your body, which makes it stay longer. Go for warm water, trust me, you will love it once you get use to drinking it. I don't eat breakfast before I drink a purified hot water. A great remedy for constipation too. You will feel the hot water cleanse your body for good.

  46. QUESTION:
    What is the fastest method of removing THC from the body?
    Say someone had 10 days to cleanse their body of THC before taking a urine test, is there anyway it can be done?
    Other than detox kits. I have one but it says nothing about removing THC from the body, it is simply a generic detox kit that I picked up at the local vitamin store.

    • ANSWER:
      10 days should be fine if you drinks lots and lost of liquids. drink like a gallon the day before. cranberry juice is supposed to be good but water should do the job also

    How can you use charcoal to clean toxins out of your body?
    Does anyone have any info on this? I have A Fib and take medications,but I've heard that charcoal will cleanse the body from metals and toxins.I will call my doc, but alot of times they really don't listen.Any info on this?THX [plz be kind]

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it true.. Life Force is a company that sells alot of naturally based health products. I have taken it before. Its weird though. I just took a tea spoon in my mouth and drunk some water to wash it down. There are other ways to help release toxins but your right charcoal absorbs all the toxins in your collon and stomach. They use it alot for people who have overdose from drinking or drugs. I wouldn't recommend any charcoal like for grills. Please dont that usually has other stuff with it and can be very damaging to you. I suggest you look into clean eating Recharge book by Tosca Reno and How to master your metabolism by Jillian Michaels. It talks about toxins and what foods and drinks and teas will help. I drink a very warm glass of water with squeezed lemon in it everyday. It helps cleanses the liver to start. Look into other options so you can be more knowledgeable. Dont trust any product online. Get a book and check it out. Also you will feel a little sick almost flu like symptoms as it releases from your body. If you do this 1 week a month you wont feel so bad at all but to start off with you will just so you know.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    any ways to detox your body without pills or drinks?
    I have been reading all the ways to detox your body on the internet thru pills and drinks. I was wondering if there were ways out there to do it naturally without taking anything. I would do something like the acai berry products but they all require a credit card to get them even if you just pay shipping and handling, I dont have a credit card so that way is out. Any suggestions other than ask a friend to use their credit card.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Lisa, I have tried a couple of ways in the past. You can do steamed vegies and boiled brown rice for 5 days only. Drinking water as well of course. And that is it for 5 days, no longer apparently it can be bad for you if you extend the time. 5 days for any detox is the max. Another suggestion is to cut out all processed foods, starches like potatoes, all bread, no spices or salt and pepper and you can do this gradually as well, for example, the first week or every couple of days you can cut out a section of food. For example cheeses and dairy, then the next week can be starches... this is guaranteed to wipe off the kilos. Just remember to drink lots of water. A few guys a know have done a detox from blessedherbs.com and they have raved about it. You do need a credit card for that one though.
      Good luck with it all, and whenever you feel thats it's getting hard, just think, it only 5 days out of your whole life!
      Enjoy your day

  2. QUESTION:
    Is there a homemade way to detox your body overnight or in a short amount of time?
    I was wondering if there is a way to detox your body overnight that you could make with household items

    • ANSWER:
      There is a method of detoxing the colon that has worked for centuries and was used extensively by many ancient healers. To detox the body, you need to be more specific about what organs, etc. Detoxing is a very good way of relieving the toxic build up that happens in our modern society. The method is called the SALT FLUSH. I have personally experienced this and it is quite effective. I recommend this to people getting a liver/gallbladder flush to free the colon of toxins prior to the dumping of gallbladder stones from the gallbladder and intrahepatic gallstones from the liver. This takes typically 1 to 2 hours. Make a solution of 2 teaspoons of AIR DRIED SEA SALT, not typical table salt in 1 quart of distilled water. Drink it down first thing in the morning. Then lie on your RIGHT side in bed for about 1/2 hour. You will hear some gurgling sounds, but not to worry, it's just working its magic. Then get up and go about your business, but stay close to a toilet.

      Sorry "GARY" but no one is selling any products here except some very inexpensive salt they will buy at the health food store. Additionally, GARY, you really should investigate the John's Hopkins Research group that discusses intrahepatic gallstones of the liver and how to detox those. I have several patients that have had incredible success in getting those stones and gallbladder stones out of their bodies with olive oil and grapefruit juice along with herbs to prepare the body for the detox of these stones. And yes, the gallbladder and liver functions improved greatly to solve some of their health problems. You do need to free yourself from the lies you believe.

      EDIT: "GARY" Boy are you wrong this time and only showing either your impossible agenda or complete ignorance. So, John Hopkin's Researchers are wrong now? The jars of stones that measure up to 1" or more that come out of patients doing the flush is wrong and not there? I'd like to have these people do what they do with their doctors that agree with you and show you the stones and then listen to the amazement of doctors that see these things. Hundreds of stones that come out of gallbladders and livers are more than proof. To see the radiance of patient's skin and to see them not have ANY MORE GALLBLADDER ATTACKS after a series of these flushes is more than proof you are wrong!

      The salt flush causes high blood pressure? Show me ONE study that says salt causes high blood pressure. Then show me ANY study that says a salt flush causes high sodium content in a body. You can't. You really need to get a life and stop making stupid statements and making this feeble attempt to validate your beliefs as if they are science backed. The quack watch is more of a quack group of pseudo scientists making feeble attempts to look credible. I believe the sad thing about all this is you will be doomed to live out your existence as a statistic in your own ignorance and belief's. You do need to free yourself from the lies you believe.

      good luck to you

  3. QUESTION:
    Are there any good fast ways I can detox my body of Depo-Provera?
    I have had only one shot of Depo and I am not going back for my 2nd shot. I hate the side affects and the whole shot together. I have been looking up ways to detox my body of the hormones but I have yet to find what I am looking for. I'm not looking to get pregnant I just really want to get these hormones out of my system so I can return to the pill. Can anybody help?

    • ANSWER:
      The idea of detox doesn't actually work--be it in the realm of dieting or trying to rid something out of your body.

      Depo has to leave your body on its own. Depo is hormones. You can't flush hormones out of your body.

  4. QUESTION:
    is there a way to detox your body without pills and supplements?
    I've been looking into body detox plan, all I've found is a bunch of 0 pill bottles and chemical plans that claim to be the best. It's confusing and really expensive, all for something that may not even do what it says. So that said, what is the best way to detox your body *without* online pill programs?

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't make sense to add chemicals (in pills) to your body to detox. Depending exactly what you're trying to detox for depends on how to detox, but in most cases
      Water, fiber, or prune juice. Water should help you detox anything. It doesn't happen with one bottle, it will take quite a bit. Do not over do the fiber or prune juice or you will be in the bathroom and in pain!
      Good luck

    Can anyone tell me the BEST, natural way to detox the body?
    I want to detox my body of certain chemicals and would like to know the best, fastest and natural way to do so. Im not looking to buy a magic bottle cause they dont work anyway. If you can help suggest a real good way to naturally detox the body that would be great. Ive read so far that "The Master Cleanse Diet" is good, havent tried it yet though. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jen

      You are right in saying "magic bottle cures" don't work, they don't. You need to set aside a period of about 10 days and eat organic fruit and vegetables in their raw state, no animal products, no alcohol and no drugs. Drink plenty of water and do some reasonably light exercise. The main problem is sticking to it cause it's tough. I found that I needed a plan or program which would discipline me into doing the right thing day by day. There are some pretty good detox programs online and some poor ones so choosing the right one isn't easy. If you got to a website which compares detox programs you can find what you need.

      Good luck

  8. QUESTION:
    How to detox body after weeks of oily food?
    I don't usually eat that much oily food or foods that are cooked in butter but for the two weeks I stayed at a friends I had lots of fried stuff like steak and sausages that where cooked in butter (also in a frying pan so all the fat/oil from the meat stayed in). Now if I have anything that is slightly oily I feel bloated for hours, is there any way to detox my body??

    • ANSWER:
      Don't sweat, so you ate some real food. No worries, return to your diet and routine and you will be fine. We all been there, your body will recoup just fine without some extreme crazy method of purging or detoxing. Life is too short and precious to be concerned about something so trivial. Don't spend another minute thinking about what you ingested. Take care.

  10. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest way to detox your body
    is there a quick and easy way for me to detox my body.

    • ANSWER:
      First, lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, minimize use of chemical-based household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants and toothpastes), and substitute natural alternatives.

      Another deterrent to good health is stress, which triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system. While these hormones can provide the "adrenaline rush" to win a race or meet a deadline, in large amounts they create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver. So it's a good idea to detox stressful life situations along with detoxifying your body. Yoga and meditation are simple and effective ways to relieve stress by resetting your physical and mental reactions to the inevitable stress life will bring.

      Also
      1. Eat plenty of fiber, including brown rice and organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.

      2. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea.

      3. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.

      4. Drink at least 2 quarts of water daily.

      5. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.

      6. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

      7. Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes.

      8. Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.

      9. Dry-brush your skin or try detoxifying patches or detox foot spas / foot baths to remove toxins through your pores. Special brushes are available at natural products stores.

      10. What is the most important way to detoxify? "Exercise," says Bennett. "Yoga or jump-roping are good. One hour every day." Also try qigong, a martial-arts based exercise system that includes exercises specifically for detoxifying or cleansing, as well as many other exercises with specific health benefits.

  11. QUESTION:
    How can i cleanse and detox my body naturally?
    In the summer my parents buy hot dogs! All the time, mostly because they are easy to cook, and no one wants to slave over a hot stove in the summer heat. Anyway because of that i eat maybe three or more everyday!!!! And yesterday i just found out they were PROCESSED! Is there any way i can detox my body naturally?
    I heard that fasting for two days is one way but but idk

    P.S. I will NEVER eat hotdogs again!

    • ANSWER:
      You don't have to go & buy a colon cleanse/detox system - your body will get rid of excess waste all by itself. But you can help it along by eating lots of fiber-rich foods like whole-wheat carbohydrates and Fiber One Cereal (not too much, because that can cause constipation) and drinking lots of water! This will clean you out naturally and help you feel more refreshed :)

  12. QUESTION:
    what are some good healthy ways to detox your body?
    I am on a mission to lose weight and I want to detox my body of all the unhealthy stufff that I have been eating over the past year. I have started out only drinking water. I just need some good advice and please I will not consider diet pills. thanks! What kinds of foods, drinks, anything else would be helpful as well!

    • ANSWER:
      First, if you really believe that unhealthy food you ate a year ago is still in your body in ANY form except fat cells, you're mistaken. The body doesn't "Hold onto" bad food and it certainly doesn't get clogged up.

      If you really want to detox your body, continue with what naturally happens: Drink water and add fiber to your diet. Water flushes the body anyway, it's God's detox. Fiber helps clean the colon and the intestines and the stomach. Our bodies were made to handle those two ingredients in the cleansing process. You don't need a special program and you don't need to starve yourself or fast to be healthy. You need to keep eating and drink more water.

      Good luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    How to detox your body naturally?
    Is there a way to detox your body at home naturally?
    Without using harsh commercial prescriptions........Many thanks,araucano.

    • ANSWER:
      Dr Roger Clements, a chemist at the USC school of pharmacy, said tests have proved that no extra toxins were expelled from the body on detox diets and that suggesting the digestive system needs a break is ludicrous.

      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.

    • ANSWER:
      You can try supplements. Just be careful about which ones you choose and i would ask a doctor before buying. I used Nature Cleanse which worked well for me but may work different for other people. If you do decide to try one, try to stick with one thats well known and has good reviews. I hear a lot about Purity 12 also. It has some good ratings. If you want to read up some more on them you can go here. http://www.puritycleanse.com

  16. QUESTION:
    What is a safe way to detox the body?
    So I would like to take 3-5 days to detox my body for health reasons. I've read many different methods to go about it. Some people say that fasting for a day is a healthy way for your body to work on the toxins that alcohol and processed food cause. Others say that is not healthy. Mainly I've heard just stick to fruits and veggies. Any suggestions? Has anyone done this before? I was told you should detox once a year.

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxing is good but not for too long. The best thing for detox is fruit and veg and you should also try brown rice.

      When you eat brown rice (plain and no garnishes), it literally acts like a sponge in your stomach and sucks up toxins and then you pass them out when you go to the toilet so it is an excellent way of not starving yourself on a detox. remember to drink plenty of water and hot water with a slice of lemon is excellent to start each day with too.

      Hope these tips help.

  19. QUESTION:
    Is there some way to naturally detox or cleanse your body?
    Is there some way to naturally detox or cleanse your body?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a lot of hype around "detoxing" and "cleansing" these days. Most of what you'll hear is untrue, and can be just a waste of your time and money. There’s no evidence that detoxing and cleansing has any health benefit. Nonetheless, there are lifestyle changes you can make to “detox” your body. Cutting back on saturated fats, daily calories, refined grains, sugar, and sodium can help you reap all kinds of health benefits. Instead, choose fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy, lean protein, seafood, and healthy fats.

    What is best way to detox body?
    I get chronic headaches and I have gotten to the point where I HAVE to take at least 5 Excedrin to get my headache gone. I drink caffeine constantly and my body is addicted to it to a point where I shake and get headaches in the morning. I heard about a way to detox your body by taking pills or drinking tea...does any one have any suggestions on how to do it?

    • ANSWER:
      You could go on a fast.

      There are many types of fast, not just a total water fast. I would not recommend a water fast for anyone new to fasting. Try a one week "Daniel Fast" for starters. A "Daniel Fast" is one in which you abstain from rich foods and strong drink, instead consuming only raw fruit and vegitables, prefering organic if possiable.

      You need to do some research on this before starting, there is a recommended way to prepare for and end a fast of any type.

  23. QUESTION:
    How to cleanse my body in a natural and fast way?
    I want to know what's the best way to CLEANSE or DETOX my body (all organs). I'm going through vigorous training, so I need to eat, that's why the faster the method, the better. I was going to try the "Master Cleanse" but it's a 10 day fast and I don't now if I can do it...My goal is to reset my body, have everything clean to where all my nutrients are being absorbed properly, and processed well. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Take psyllium husk and coconut oil before every meal. This is a very gentle but effective colon cleanse. The psyllium husk is pure fibre and will 'scrub' the inside walls of your digestive tract. The coconut oil lubricates everything so foods passes through more easily and is also antibacterial and antifungal so it cleans. Also regularly eat foods that are high in Probiotics. I like kefir (strawberry flavour tastes like a fruit smoothie!) But yogurt and fermented vegetables are also good sources. Good bacteria helps you digest better

      Drink bitter teas after each meal. This may not sound pleasant but bitter foods stimulate your liver and help strengthen it so it works better. Look for ingredients like dandelion, burdock, milk thistle, licorise, cinnamon, etc. Don't take capsules, they are way less effective

      Drink lots of water, this flushes out your urinary tract (kidneys, etc). If your tap water has fluoride added, drink bottled instead. Fluoride is a chemical that is not good for you! If your water is fluoride-free but contains chlorine, boil it or leave it out overnight. The chlorine will evaporate and leave your water clean but chemical free

      And obviously, if you really want to detox, you should avoid putting more 'toxins' in your body. This means you should avoid all drugs (including pain killers, cold meds, etc), alcohol, caffeine, and processed foods

    What is the best way to detox your body?

    • ANSWER:
      CAN BE DONE IN THE USA TOO

      Hydrocolon Therapy - large intestine irrigation - detoxication, and purification of organism.

      The large intestine plays an important role in the human´s digestive tract. That is the reason why we offer you the possibility to purify this part of your organism by Hydrocolon therapy. This method was introduced in ancient times, and its modern form was developed in the US. Owing to this method we can help you to overcome consequences of unsuitable lifestyle, improper regime, and often impacts from taking modern medicaments, especially antibiotics on intestinal microflora.

      Why go through hydrocolon Therapy?
      In curves of large intestines are persistently cumulating food remainders that form culture medium for putrid, and fermentative processes. Yeasts, moulds, and bacteria multiply on these remainders, and disturb natural balance. They also produce increased amounts of toxins (poison) which pass through mucosas, simultaneously are absorbed into blood, and lymphatic systems. In a fundamental manner then weight down the organism, and immune system, and become the reason for an array of medical problems, and illnesses. They as well disturb abilities of intestinal mucosa to absorb significant vitamins, and nutrients. Among frequent complaints that are bound to this process belong for example:

      Acne, skin diseases, psoriasis, various mould ailments, allergies
      Overweight, enlarged abdomen, constipation, articulary problems, rheumatism, high blood pressure, pain in the small of the back
      Headaches, chronic weariness, weakened defensiveness, proneness to illnesses, anemia, bodily odour, bad breath
      Therapy progress
      The procedure is carried out in a lying position on the back by professional personnel - skilled nurses, and lasts approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
      To the client’s intestine is alternately pumped warm and cold water by a tube inserted into the rectum. Uneven temperatures stimulate peristalsis and clean the intestine. Hydrotherapy gently dissolves, and cleanses intestinal contents including toxic wastes, sediment mass, pathogenic micro-organisms, and parasites. Simultaneously activates immune system. Water with dregs is conducted away from the body without you smelling any stench, since the whole system is closed. Clients can observe the irrigated content in a transparent pipe during the procedure.
      Hydrocolon therapy is perceived pleasant, and creating content feeling. The therapy does not cause any pain or spasms. In certain phases of the procedure appears a feeling of full intestine.

      Preparation before the therapy
      One day before the irrigation is appropriate to consume only easily digestible food, for example: yogurt, kefir, puree, fish, pasta, vegetable soup, tea, juice. Inappropriate is flatulent food for example: legume, fresh bakery products, cabbage, kale, raw vegetables, and fruit, meat, milk.

      Recommended number of procedures
      Under the terms of this purgative method are completed 3 to 5 applications out of which are 1 to 3 completed in the first week. After the irrigation is recommended to take a preparation with microbial flora – lactoflora by Pharma Nord company. Subsequently is appropriate to go for a sustentative purification once a year.

      Make an appointment, if you want.

  25. QUESTION:
    How to detox body before starting a diet?
    Ive decided on saturday i am going to detox my body before starting loosing weight. I want to do this so my body can be fresh and get rid of all the bad stuff i have been eating recently. Obviously you need to drink alot of water but what else helps you to cleanse yourself from the inside? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I, for one, believe wholeheartedly in detox. But, only in the proper way otherwise it may make matters worse. Many folks assume that the body is quite capable of ridding itself of the plethora of "junk" it comes in contact with and come out smelling like roses - that's just plain ludicrous. Yes, the Supreme Being did create a wondrous marvel, our body, as we are designed with organs and systems (colon, liver, kidneys, bladder, lymph and skin) that work around the clock to rid the body of "toxins" (cellular waste, digestive waste, foreign proteins, heavy metals, etc.) that occur due to what we eat, drink, breathe, put on our skin and even from the stresses of our daily lives. Problems will and do arise when our organs/systems are overloaded with work, impeding proper function and elimination. Essentially, If our bodies could handle all of this, there would be no sickness and disease, point blank!

      When we feel below par or have symptoms of dis-ease, we are experiencing the effects of the build-up of toxins. This is another name for "acidosis" of the body. And, this is what needs to be addressed and reversed through a proper detox. Most people get it wrong when they think to "purge" the body of toxins with the many detox diets, programs or pills out in the marketplace that may do more harm than good. What needs to be done and is the real meaning of detox - Alkalize! This is the golden key that opens the door to health and vitality.

      Here's what happens: Acidosis causes obstructions in either one or more of the 3 energy flows of the body - blood, nerve and lymph. Looking at the lymphatic system (which is the main system that is stressed), lymph fluid should be free flowing towards the kidneys that should filter out the acids. With the accumulation of too many acids (acidosis), the lymph fluid becomes cationic - an environment where things start to get sticky and coagulate, allowing very little to be eliminated. Any good detox regimen should aid in removing the obstructions by changing the body fluids to alkaline. This is a major start down the road to repair and rebuilding of the body.

      Most detox diets/programs can be unhealthy and don't work only because they are not alkalizing. In many cases, they are designed to purge the body of so-called toxins. When purging is involved, what is happening is your body is being forced to function the way it should be functioning on its own. So, the solution to this inability to rid of something foreign in the body (obstructions) is to strengthen the cells so that they may perform this task of elimination optimally. Now, there are instances that a very "constipated" organ/system needs a little nudge and this nudge should be gotten through a natural means and for a short length of time, such as with the use of herbs - an alkalizing means…. not with chemicals that are acid-forming, making matters worse.

      Drinking tons of water to "flush" is not an advisable approach to detox. This is because, if you're acidic, your body will retain water as it tries to "put out the fire" of acidosis and bloating is experienced in most cases (and especially since most of the water people drink is acidic!) This approach holds no water (pun intended) since when you release your bladder, it is usually clear after drinking lots of water. The fact is, if your kidneys are filtering the lymph optimally, you would have cloudy and flakey pee.

      In essence, your diet should be your detox! A detox diet should include 80% (total calories) raw fruits or freshly-made fruit juices, 10 - 15% greens and 5 - 10% essential fatty acids. Meat, dairy products and even grain products hinder the natural detoxifying processes and should be totally avoided. They are acid-forming or congesting in the body. If your body is very acidic (sick and diseased) adding tissue-specific herbs or herbal formulas are a great plus. Even animals in the wild know which herbs to consume when they feel below par! By following this way of healthy eating, your body's elimination systems will be able to function optimally! Detoxing any other way sets you up for failure since it's most likely not an alkalizing protocol.

  26. QUESTION:
    What are good ways to detox body after quitting smoking?
    I've been drinking heaps of green tea and water. Do you think this is enough.

    If i cleanse my body like this, is there a chance that the nicotine will get out of my body quicker?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all... Congrats on taking this step.

      Smoking means smoke and nicotine enters blood directly from the lungs. The lungs get coated or accumulate smog, ash, nicotine burns..etc.

      Abdominal breathing, pranayama, deep breathing... these will help to eject much of the collected smog. We all are lazy breathers and deep breathing needs to be learnt.
      This is a sure way of detoxification of lungs to eject residual nicotine.

      Exercise, sweating, proper eating helps remove the deposited 'smokers ash' collected below the skin... chain smokers get yellow/pale skin patches..

      Most important, keep that positive attitude.. detox the mind and stay strong.. Best wishes

  27. QUESTION:
    What's a great way to detox your body?
    I am headed to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve this year and I'd like to detox my body and shed a couple of pounds before I go. Does anyone have any tips on great detox and weight-loss programs for a short period of time? Not looking to spend a great deal of money either. Mainly, just want to "feel" better if you know what I mean. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      There is are "detox" blends of tea available from various brands, such as Yogi Tea and Celestial Seasonings. These are usually available in the organic foods section of many grocery stores, if not just in the tea aisle. They have a taste which is rather difficult to acquire... But, if you can make yourself drink a whole cup about an hour before lunch, and an hour before dinner, it helps a lot.

      If you can't get used to the dandelion-root & chamomile flavour of the detox teas, any other kind of tea will serve a similar purpose, just not quite so completely.

      Also, don't eat your biggest meal of the day at the end of it - have a big breakfast or lunch, but take it easy for dinner. Eat your last large meal at least four hours before you become totally sedentary for the evening (either sleeping or watching T.V.), and drink lots and lots and lots of water. Yes, it will make you pee, but remind yourself that's a Good Thing.

      One solid month of discipline will make your New Year resolution a breeze to keep!

    does the acai berry supplements and the colon cleanse pills really work?
    i keep seeing those "diary websites" about loosing 20 lbs of fat in 3 weeks and offering free trials of these pills. but i just would like to know if these is a great way to detox your body and if their is any truth to the claims. and if so, which are the best pills to take?

    • ANSWER:
      Most of stuff like that doesn't work and usually if it's a free trial then it will bill you monthly afterwards. I would advise you to ask a doctor. Most people don't want to but it's probably the best information you can get but that's your choice. Some supplements are good ways to clean and detox your body you just have to be careful about which ones you choose and take them as directed. I use a product called nature cleanse and it's worked well for me I lost 12 pounds my first month and I feel a lot healthier and lighter. That may not sound like a lot but it's not good for your body to loose weight too fast. But I hope this helps you out and if you want to read up on more about what I use you can go here http://www.nature-cleanse.webs.com working out and eating right when you can also helps to benefit the results.

  29. QUESTION:
    Any great ways to detox the body?
    I'm looking to detox my body from the impacted meats and air born microbes that I'm sure are jammed in there. I'm looking for a natural detox to do at home (forget the water and Juice fasting techniques). Herbal drugs are are okay, but I'm not going to spend on some chalky detoxing crap that pot smokers use to pass urine tests.

    Now I eat pretty healthy, drink around 60oz of water a day and exercise about 4 times a week. But I know I have impacted stuff in there, and looking to break it up, and I've been getting sick more often lately, so just looking for a "body restart"

    Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      1. Detox Diets:
      Diet is an important part of detox. Vegetarian diets are the best naturally for detoxifying the body. Due to the fact that meat takes a lot of energy and enzymes to digest it. Also vegetables and fruit which vegetarians eat a lot of contain high amounts of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes which help the body cleanse itself.

      Chorophyl which is what gives plants their green colour is very detoxifying. Eating vegetables that are very green like spinach will help you get the chlorophyl you need.
      Adding spirulina to your diet will also greatly enhance your bodies ability to detox and heal. Spirulina will help speed the metabolism, and is very easy to digest due to it's very basic spiral cell structure. Spirulina is a type of blue/green algae that is full of amino acids (protein), minerals, anti-oxidants, and enzymes.

      2. Detox Baths:
      Salt Baths are an excellent way to detoxify the body. The salt will help clear toxins and lactic acid through the skin. Lactic acid causes aches in the muscles. It is good to take a detoxification bath once a week while on a cleanse or detox program. Otherwise once a month is good for maintenance.
      Use 1/2 cup of baking soda, or 1/2 cup of epsom salt, or 1/2 cup of sea salt.
      Adding a smoky quartz crystal to the bath water with help detoxification.
      Soak for 15-20 minutes.
      Scrub skin gently with a natural fiber scrubber (Loofa sponges work great).
      The water will turn murky due to toxins such as heavy metals coming out of the skin.

      3. Saunas, Steam Rooms, & Sweat Lodges:
      These are also excellent ways to remove toxins from the body through sweating them out. The high temperatures in saunas, steam rooms, and sweat lodges cause your muscles to relax which will allow those cells to release any toxins they were holding when they were tense. When your body is heated up to high temperatures you will sweat, and sweat is a natural way that your body rids itself of built up toxins. The sweat will safely remove these toxins from your body.
      Taking cayenne, ginger, lemon, and/or lemongrass will also help the body expell toxins through sweating. Taking any of these in tea form before or during your sweat lodge, steam room, or sauna sessions will greatly facilitate the cleansing process. Also showering after a sweat is important to make sure you've rinsed away any toxins that were eliminated.

      4. Tongue Cleansing:
      Whenever you go to sleep at night, your body will go into a deep state of healing and will work to remove toxins out of your body through your tongue. When you wake up with bad breath, that is a sign that you have released many toxins through your tongue. This can be seen as varying colours typically white, yellow, or brownish on your tongue. Ayurvedic and Chinese doctors sometimes diagnose people according to the colour of toxins eliminated through the tongue.
      It is important to clean your tongue in the morning before eating breakfast to avoid re-ingesting those toxins. To do this you can simply use a toothbrush to brush your tongue clean of the toxins released. Even better is to use an ayurvedic tongue cleaner. This is a device usually made of metal that is shaped with a loop that rakes over your tongue pulling off all the toxins.

      5. Juice Fasting:
      Juice fasting is an incredible way to detox and heal the body quickly. 30% of our bodies energy is devoted to digesting our food. When we fast we give our consistently hard working digestive system a break and free up that extra 30% of energy which gets re-directed to detoxifying and healing the body.
      Drinking vegetable and fruit juices are very cleansing and healthy. They are full of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes all of which are very important for helping the body to detoxify and cleanse. You are also able to drink much more juice than you would be able to eat from fresh fruits and vegetables. For example, you can juice and drink the nutrients from 3 large carrots and a couple of heads of lettuce easily, whereas it would be harder to sit down and eat them all fresh without getting full.
      It is good general body upkeep to fast on a regular basis such as once a week 1-day fasts, or doing longer fasts/cleanses (3-12days) around the Spring or Fall Equinoxes.If you are planning a 3-day or more juice fast, I recommend consulting a health professional first to see if it is right for you and your body type and to make sure you will be getting the right nutrients. I also recommend adding Gelatinized Maca powder, Ayurvedic Herb: Shilajit, or spirulina to your juices or smoothies to increase your mineral, and vitamin intake.

      6. Herbal Teas:
      Herbal teas are also an important part of a juice fast. By taking herbal teas that help cleanse and detox the body, you will greatly facilitate the healing process. Recommended herbal teas for juice fasting are: dandelion, fennel, licorice, ginger, cayenne, peppermint, goldenseal, juniper berry, chamomile, red clover.

      7. Detox Herbs
      There are a variety of herbal supplements one can take to help detox the body. I'll just list some of the main ones here: dandelion, goldenseal, milk thistle, neem, anantmul, tulsi, and manjistha. DETOX is a general organ cleanser and tonic, specifically including kidneys, liver, pancreas and gall bladder. Cleanses heavy metals and other poisons, such as mercury, lead, alcohol and a deficiency of the vitamin B complex, especially thiamin, from the blood, nerves and cells. A thiamin deficiency results in the impairment of nerve tissue so that it cannot utilize carbohydrates for energy. Also, DETOX is very good for providing a complete cleansing of the small intestine. Excellent for taking, following any intense experience of stress.

      8. Detox Foot Pouches:
      A wonderful and very easy way to detoxify while you sleep is by using a detox foot pouch. This is a wonderful method used by the Chinese and other Asian doctors. It is quite simply a small pouch filled with mandarin wood vinegar, tourmaline, and germanium. This pouch when placed on the foot creates a chemical reaction that causes the pouch to emit far infrared energy that stimulates the body's meridians and circulation of blood and lymph. This greatly helps the system detoxify and the pouch will then absorb toxins released by the body. These pouches are specifically placed on the foot's reflexology points to target specific areas of the body for stimulation and detoxification. They can also be placed on other acu-points on the body with similar results.

      good luck

  32. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detox without damaging metabolism?
    I wanted to know what is the best way to detox. Is it eating fruit and vegetables only for a few days or drinking lemon juice in the morning?
    Any other ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay...Here we go!

      This is my theory and this is what works for me. Everyone is different so it may need to be adjusted to your own personal needs.

      Energy In/Energy Out

      Food Intake: 1,200 Per Day

      One Pound equals 3,500 Calories

      To loose one pound per day, You need to burn your food intake plus your one pound of fat

      1,200 (intake) + 3,500 (Outtake) = 4,700 Calories Burn

      You must burn at least 4,700 Calories everyday to loose one pound at least. It is very easy to go up and beyond 4,700 calories each day.

      Best way to do this is to track your progress on a calorie counter monitor watch. If you do it by the numbers you can loose the weight. It is just a matter of changing the way you think about weight loss.

      Once you start wearing your calorie counter you can see the numbers increase and you fill find yourself doing extra things in your day, like tapping your foot while waiting at the light in your car, chewing gum, singing out loud and so on onto of your workout routines. You begin to see that everything you do in your day contributes to the overall numbers needed to loose that pound.

      I, myself, have done this recently. Two weeks later, I lost one pant size and 10 pounds. And that is just my current progress. I have used this method previously after childbirth and have gone from 168 to 127 pounds with in two months.

      I personally burn 1,000 calories by Walking in my community for one hour in the morning and I also burn 1,000 calories by simply using a stationary bike while playing xbox. I get so involved in playing xbox that I completely forget I am pedaling or working out. Think about it..How many hours have you spent playing video games..why not burn calories while you are doing it.

      Water Intake/Less Storage

      Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 to 80 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

      Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day.

      ____

      Good Food

      My favorite things to eat:

      Avocado Wraps

      Simple: Low Carb Tortilla, Half Avocado sliced, alpha sprouts, lettuce, soy bacon...Just wrap it up and eat. You can vary the things you put inside so long as you keep it to approx 4 or 5 items. You want to make sure they are fresh, low calorie and filling. Avocado and mushrooms can replace meats in your meal and still have great taste.

      Special K Cereals are fantastic. They have that sweetness that one craves and is so good for you. Calories are low. Great for even just dinner.

      First thing in the morning...A Glass of Chocolate Milk. Yup!! Chocolate Milk. We all crave that "got to have" item in the morning. Milk is the best thing you can have for yourself while working out. The chocolate (and you can use Carnation Instant Milk for this but I simply use Nestle dry mix) will give you that sweet "snack" that you need. If you give your body a little bit of it and its in a control way, you will not crave sweets and junk the rest of the day.

      Lean Cuisines

      Fantastic food! Each meal is approx 180 t0 380 calories per box. So think about your calories. 1,200...You can still have several of these meals a day and still be under your intake requirements.

      It’s all about the numbers and watching what you take in and what you burn out. And you know what..If you go over your 1,200 mark for food intake...that’s okay...you simple up your total calories burned for the day by what you took it. So long as you burn off the over all calories to be more than your food intake. Just make sure you stick too it so you can reach your weight loss goals.

      Fruits and Veggies

      All you want on the schedule listed below.
      Bananas are my favorite. They are very filling and can make a meal all on their own.

      ____

      Vitamins

      My favorite is ONE A DAY WITH ENERGY...I am in love with this vitamin because I am just like everyone else who loves those quick fix energy drinks. But what people do not realize is that energy drinks can contain 120 to 440 calories in just ONE Can. If you think about it..That is HALF of your allowed calories for food intake. The best alternative I have found is One a day with energy vitamin. Easy to spot, it is packaged in a green label bottle. Just One vitamin a day will give you as much energy as approx. 1 1/2 cans of red bull...WITHOUT the calorie intake.
      WoW..now your making progress already because you have made more room in your intake calories for actual healthy food.

      _____

      Soda/Carbonation

      Carbonation is terrible for your system because it bloats your stomach. And when your stomach bloats, your jeans just don't fit. You can drop one pant size simply by NOT drinking any carbonated drinks all together..Take away the bloat and you have instantly just made it one pant size lower. Besides, Sodas dehydrate you and with that One a Day Vitamin, you won't need the Caffeine in the soda and it will also cut out those extra calories that you don't need.
      So remove that soda and the energy drinks and just think how much calories you just instantly removed from your daily intake. I normally consume what...four sodas and two energy drinks in one day...that is a total of .... 900 calories. Of what??? Nothing...Those are horrible calories and calories that can be replaced by food which will fuel your body for your day and your workouts.

      ____

      Your Body

      Your body is like a computer. You must program your body to do what it is suppose to do so it won't crash and leave you with a virus. Your stomach is only the size of your fist. So think about it right now, Look at your hand and close your fist. Not very big is it. That is how much food you actually ONLY need to eat, each time you eat for every meal. If you eat anything more than that, you will stretch out your stomach which causes overeating and overweight.

      What you need to do is eat every three hours, approx 5 to 7 times everyday around the same time. If you are always giving your body healthy and better food choices (the size of your fist) every three hours, your body will know you are giving it food. It will use that food properly. It will not go into starvation mode or store food away for later because it knows...it will get more in three hours. So what does your body do...it flushes everything out of your system because it doesn't need it.. Now it knows...you wont' forget about it and that food is on its way.

      ____

      Walking Buddy

      This is the best thing especially for woman. Get a walking buddy. One hour everyday. Just think about how much talking, venting and laughing two woman can do together while walking and yup, you guessed it...it just burns more calories and reduces your stress. You now are more relaxed because you can talk and free yourself of whatever is frustrating you while getting into shape.

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of "cleanses" available for detoxing the body, and they can rid your body of the unnatural medications and chemicals you are putting in. There are a variety of different cleanses that you could try- liver, colon, etc. you should check some of them out, they are actually really cool.

  35. QUESTION:
    Is it safe to detox your body?
    I'm a college student that is trying to get in better shape...I read in Fitness magazine that before you start dieting that you should detox your body. I want to really start dieting after Christmas. Is detoxing safe? Also, what are some ways that I can safely detox my body? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can't detox your body. You need to find better resources for information.

      "Detox" is short for detoxification and detoxification is a natural process involving your liver and kidneys and there is nothing you can do to effect it. It is impossible to detoxify a human once the toxin is in the blood with the possible exception of kidney dialysis, kelation therapy, and other expensive medical modalities. Currently "detox" is a faddist word, relatively meaningless, and is used to express that which the users cannot otherwise express because of ignorance of because the expression would be patently false.

      Detox diets, cleanses, and supplements don't work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don't work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

      Check out these reliable references. Listen to experts, not a random bunch of strangers of unknown credibility in this and other forums. Here's what the experts have to say about cleanses.

      Article excerpt: "Colon Cleansing Has No Health Benefit, May Harm"
      Ref: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_114876.html

      Article excerpt: "Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists"
      Ref: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article784402.ece

      Your body cleanses itself naturally. And cleanses, purges, emetics, enemas, alternative and homeopathic colon cleanses etc. cannot remove fat from your body or make your body lose fat and/or toxins. If fat is your problem, you're eventually going to realize that nothing works except a proper diet for life or surgery. The best diet for all normal adults hasn't changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods.

      Detoxification is a fad and a fantasy only. If you have reason to believe you're toxic, consult with your doctor. Don't waste your time paying attention to advertising hype, naturopathic gurus, homeopathic charlatans, etc. The road to good health is paved with science. If you or someone you love gets deathly ill, you will take them to a place where medical science is practiced. So, where is the sense in abandoning medical science in favor of baseless and unscientific methods of quacks and charlatans.

      Good luck and good health!!

  36. QUESTION:
    How to detox body before going on diet?
    I've been on diet for 3 weeks now, but so far I've not lost any inches, maybe I should detox my body first? How to do it?

    • ANSWER:
      No need for a detox, the body will detox itself. The best way to monitor diets is by using BMI readings rather than weight. You can reduce fat in your body but stay the same weight!! eg if you exercise lots you will build muscles, muscles are heavier than fat, so you become leaner but lose little weight if any. it is possible for women to drop 2 dress sizes but stay the same weight

    I am not feeling well and need to detox my body i feel it may be chemicals that i eat, drink or smoke (cigs). I am looking to detox from everything that may be hindering my health so as i detox i am quitting the smoking and drinking, and eating of nasty chemicals. I need some good advice on how to go about this safely ( i don't need to lose weight so no need for advice for that).

    • ANSWER:
      You can detox your body with excercise or by eating veggies or fruits by 60% of toxins of your body, what about those which are non soluble and do not get out with sweat (excercise & purified water), urine or stool (fruits & veggies)?

      you need something which detects toxins, pull them out from blood, cells, organs and remove them completely out from body, then regenerate body organs and improves your immune system to fight back harmfull diseases.

      i would suggest you to study about "Ganoderma Lucidium", its a mushroom which has minimum 200 medicinal values and works what i have told above, it comes in powder/tabs forms and can be taken with or without medical prescription and / or with any kind of regular medicine (if u r taking), its 100% natural way to detoxify your body with better health and immune system.

  41. QUESTION:
    What's a natural good way to detox your body?
    I'm starting a new work out system next week and want to detox but without the outrageous expensive pills that usually make you sick to your stomach.
    lol Erica hmmmmmm not from alcohol. I'm talking about just detoxing your body to purify your body.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are open to alternative health methods, I have had success with a 1) vegetable juice fast (inexpensive), a 2) liver detox (fairly inexpensive, some supplements involved), and 3) detox pads (on the more expensive side).

      1) If you have access to a juicer, celery is great to juice for detox. I've used the following combination to great effect (celery, garlic clove, lemon, cayenne pepper, salt to taste). In my experience, 2-4 weeks max without solids without becoming extremely depleted.

      2) Dr Hulda Clark's (controversial figure due to some pretty aggressive claims) liver cleanse. Although I think some of her materials are hard to believe, I've had great results with her liver detox (she publishes it for free on her site). There are some supplements involved, but fairly inexpensive, and you don't have to buy them from her. The cool thing is, at the end you will pass stones from your liver, and feel amazing for about a week.

      3) Detox foot pads - there is quite a bit of skepticism on whether these work. You wear them on your feet and toxins come out onto the pads.. I'm not sure if it's not just the herbs changing colors (they claim to test them), but they are doing something, as I sleep great with them.

      Several years ago I did a hair analysis test, then did the combination above for 2 months, and a second hair analysis that showed a significant decreases in toxic levels (especially aluminum, mercury, & pcb's).

  42. QUESTION:

  44. QUESTION:
    What are NATURAL ways to detox my body at home?
    Anything you guys know about that I can make at home?
    I don't want to buy any fancy stuff. Something simple, with stuff I already have at home.
    I tried drinking water right after I wake up, but it's kinda hard.
    Im 16 , 185 lbs, 5ft 11".
    Im starting swimming soon, so I want to go with a detox formula to flush away my toxins and fat.
    I have chronic constipation also.

    • ANSWER:
      Look, you are not a walking bag of toxins and you do not need to drink or eat anything unusual to detoxify yourself. You already own the world's most efficient onboard filters for the purpose- you call them your liver and kidneys. Your body already removes waste, in urine and feces, on a regular basis. Nothing you can eat is going to leach things out of your body, at least not things like heavy metals. It just doesn't work that way. If you want to keep your body in tip top form for swimming, the best thing you could do is simply eat a well balanced diet, heavy on the whole grains, fruits and veggies, and light on refined foods, fast foods, red meat, and fats. Drinking water is fine, and you can do that whenever you drink liquid. It doesn't even have to be straight water either. Your body routinely gets the fluid it needs from all the food you eat, even if it's not drunk. Melons are primarily water and fiber, as are many fruits and veggies. You also will want to up the calcium intake, so you have material to build bone and muscle with. The best sources of that are still dairy products, but you just don't need all the fat. So stick with low to no fat dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt. Avoid the empty calories in junk foods and sodas. Do not try mixing up concoctions of strange things to eat or drink. They simply don't work, and your body won't appreciate the effort to help out. All you have to do is eat right, and trust your body knows what to do with the rest. That's the most natural way going.

  45. QUESTION:
    What happens when you detox your body?
    I was talking to someone recently and they mentioned something about detoxing.

    Why do you detox your body? What is the best way to do it? Will it harm your body?

    • ANSWER:
      A natural body cleanse detox is not something only "unhealthy" people should do. Even with a healthy lifestyle, you should detox your body occasionally because of the daily exposure to a multitude of harmful chemicals and toxins.

      Various herbs can assist in a total body cleanse. Dandelion and Fennel aid in a natural body cleanse by detoxifying the system, rejuvenating liver functioning and kick-starting the body back to life.

      Tips When Detoxing Your Body:

      * First do no harm! A number of body cleanse detox products are ineffective and dangerous.
      * Drink plenty of water to help detox your body.
      * Eliminate foods containing toxins and increase your intake of foods containing vitamins and nutrients. Also increase fiber intake.
      * A natural body cleanse detox starts in the mind. The more mentally prepared you are for your total body cleanse, the greater your chance of success.

  49. QUESTION:
    what is the best way to detox my body in a week?
    i have a drug test in a week and i wanna know whats the best way to detox my body from marijuana toxins

    • ANSWER:
      Water. Nothing is better for you, more natural, or more effective. I myself detoxed from marijuana by drinking lots of water. A week should be plenty of time for you to clean out.

  50. QUESTION:
    What is the most effective way to pass a drug test?
    I'm no Michael Phelps, but I am a division 1 swimmer, and the NCAA is rumored to be on campus, preparing a drug test for a random team(s) at my university. If I fail (have more than 15 ng/mL of thc in my urine), then I get a loss of 1 year of eligibility, a big deal to someone like me who cares a lot about their sport. I am a recreational pot smoker and have been since high school. I smoke probably about half a gram 2 out of every 3 days or so. I do also take fairly frequent week long breaks from smoking. I am about 6ft 190 lbs with very little body fat, as I do work out 4-5 hours everyday. There are a few ways that I've heard about to detox my body.

    1. Niacin detox ( http://www.ehow.com/how_8165011_use-clean-thc-out-system.html )
    2. 72 hour vinegar-water detox ( http://www.rollitup.org/toke-n-talk/165598-72-hour-thc-detox.html )
    3. flush your system the old fashioned way (with water and vitamins found in gatorade or other sports drinks)
    4. Oil Change (not sure how credible that one is)

    but basically what I need is for someone who has more knowledge than me to help me decide which course of action is best. I'd greatly appreciate any answers, but time is of the essence, so please hurry if you could.

    • ANSWER:
      Joey, time is the only thing that will get the thc out of your system, the only thing. So called detoxers show up as masking agents and are an automatic fail.

      Niacin would help you beat tests from 15-20 years ago, but it doesn't help at all on modern tests.

      Like another person said, you want to pass a drug test, don't use drugs.

      A simple concept yet so hard for many to grasp.

Master Cleanse Detox

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is it ok to buy a lot of lemons and juice them all for the Master Cleanse and preserve the juice in the fridge?
    Hello, Im doing the Master Cleanse Detox just to restart my system and make healthier choices but I wanted to know is it ok to buy a large amount of organic lemons so I dont have to keep running to the store. I plan to juice all the lemons at once and use the amount needed for the day then preserve the rest. Is that ok?

    • ANSWER:
      Juice the amount of lemons you`re planning to intake the morning you`re doing the cleanse or the next day. I hear that squeezed lemon juice stay fresh no longer than 2 days. Do not keep your freshly purchased lemons in the fridge for more than 10 days. I did, and they`ve got green mold growing on them (what a waste.)

  2. QUESTION:
    Is it a good idea to detox and diet before back surgery?
    I will probably be having back surgery soon. I was thinking about doing a Master Cleanse detox and then switching to a vegetarian/vegan diet before my surgery. Is this a good idea? Or should I do both of these things after surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      The healthier you are prior to, the sooner you'll recover. My daughter went through it and the weight can be a real problem during recovery.
      Best of luck

  3. QUESTION:
    How do I combine the salt water flush with herbal laxatives?
    I am on day one of the master cleanse detox and I want to do my salt water flush at night.
    So, when do I take my herbal laxative pills?

    • ANSWER:
      in the blender

  4. QUESTION:
    What is the Recipe for the Master Cleanse diet by the gallon?
    I am thinking about doing the Master Cleanse diet for 10 days to detox and drop some junk food weight that I know I have gained... I am going to be starting a diet of exercizing and eating right and I want to start fresh. Does anyone know what the recipe is to make this diet by the gallon so I can keep it in the fridge and not make it by the glass? N E help would be appreciated. THANX!

    • ANSWER:
      I don't recommend the master cleanse diet. Have you tried it before? I remember how last winter I wanted to do it for a week just for starters. The first day was so painful. I got such a bad headache and my breath got icky because I wasn't eating anything (did you know eating can actually help your breath to an extent?). I've read of other people complaining about the headaches and what not from doing that cleanse. I'd scratch it from your list of things to try because it's just not really worth it. If you want to clean out your system, try drinking senna teas like once (maybe even twice) every few weeks....much more effective.

    I've tried, ASDA, sainsbury's, morrissons, tesco, marks & spencer, holland and barrat
    (need it for Master cleanse detox) is no.1 medium from holland and barrat OK then?

    • ANSWER:
      Any type is fine, most of the maple syrup imported to the UK is from Canada and we do not use that type of system to grade or evaluate our maple syrup, it is done on colour, light, amber or medium, a light or medium is fine, but it is not going to be cheap especially for a detox cleanse.

  6. QUESTION:
    Can you use lemon juice for lemon detox diet?
    I've been interested in trying the "master cleanse" lemon detox diet. There seems to be a consensus that lemons have to be fresh squeezed and not from concentrate, or the detox effects will not be present. However, I was wondering if organic lemon juice would provide the same results? Also, any personal tips/experience anyone has with the diet would be helpful. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      You are really just looking at a painful and drawn out way to empty your entire digestive tract.
      The lemon detox/master cleanse diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it? Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system.
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available. The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to convert muscle and even organ tissue first for fuel instead of the stored fat. Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed. The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

    (need it for Master cleanse detox) is no.1 medium from holland and barrat OK then?

    • ANSWER:
      You're going to have a very difficult time finding it retail unless you can find a specialized health food store. Ordering on-line is likely your only option. I live in Michigan, a maple syrup producing state, and I can't find it retail. Pure maple syrup will work just as well just as the lemons don't absolutely have to be organic.

  9. QUESTION:
    Can the sea salt water flush cause high blood pressure?
    This flush is part of the master cleanse lemonade detox fast. Would there be another substitute if it does? Thanks you all in advanced.

    • ANSWER:
      I see how it could happen. Any large amount of sodium introduced into the system can cause temporary increases in blood pressure. It should not be long-lasting though. More important is the use of a shady and stupid treatment that has no health benefits whatsoever.

  10. QUESTION:
    Does the Master Cleanse really work and is it safe?
    I am starting the Master Cleanse tomorrow which involves the homemade lemonade and detox system. has anyone tried it? Is it worth it? It seems hard but rewarding. Also, I have dance rehearsals all week so I need to have enough energy to not pass out. Will this be extremely difficult?

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with the last person about waiting. I have just completed it a couple days ago for my 3rd time. I truly do believe the master cleanse works and is safe for most people, people that are generally healthy to begin with. And yes, it's tough.

      From my experience, you will need a good 2 to 2 1/2 hours in the AM after you do the salt water flush to be near a bathroom, trust me on this one! Bowel movements can come out of nowhere! So if you work in the daytime, I would try go in a little late if possible. If you don't do the salt water flush on any day, the morning bathroom runs won't be that bad, but that kind of defeats the purpose.

      As for energy, the first day will be the worst, especially if you regularly drink coffee or regular tea, as you will your body will be going through caffeine withdrawal. You will be tired, and most likely will have a headache for most of the day.

      Day two should be better, but you will still have low energy until about day 4 or 5, until most of the bad stuff has left your body. 1st time doing it, could be up to 7 days until your energy increases.

      Don't forget the cayenne pepper (fresh as you can), this is important.

      The worst part of the cleanse is the salt water flush. If you can deal with that, the rest is a piece of cake, and you also might be dreaming of cake two days in, dreaming of all food, thinking of recipes, basically food will be on your mind constantly.

      Try to stay strong, and you will be glad you accomplished it. Your intestines will thank you for cleaning them out.

      Good luck!

  11. QUESTION:
    Would the master cleanse (lemonade diet) be dangerous for me?
    I am 5'4'' and 110 pounds but I want to do the master cleanse to detox and get rid of my caffeine and sugar dependencies. How much weight should I expect to lose? Am I putting myself in danger of becoming too thin?

    • ANSWER:
      The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. It took me some time to figure it out but you will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      You may lose a pound of body fat but not necessarily. So it does work. but it does not change your SIZE. Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism).
      Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxins.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well to fully detox.Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.

  12. QUESTION:
    When doing the Master Cleanse Detox, should I continue taking multivitamins and medication?
    Master Cleanse Detox

    • ANSWER:
      multivitamins are your choice, medications should still be taken as advised by your doctor.

  13. QUESTION:
    Is it ok to start Master Cleanse with a cold?
    I just started coming down with a cold, and was planning on starting the Master Cleanse. Is ok to start now, or should I wait till I feel better?

    • ANSWER:
      This is probably an answer you won't like, but I'll give it anyway.

      Master Cleanse is another one of those quirky detox/diet plans that has no scientific data to back it up. You may as well go get some colonic irrigation done while you're at it. People have been doing that for longer with about the same results. It's all snake oil based on assumption and pseudoscience and misinformation.

      You want to detox? Drink water. It's the best detoxifier available. You want to lose weight? Eat a healthy diet heavy on the fruits and veggies and get some exercise. These are the things that will make you feel better, feel stronger, fight infections, and look better too.

      Personally, I wouldn't recommend starting Master Cleanse even when you feel fine, much less when you are under the weather.

  14. QUESTION:
    Does the lemon diet/master cleanse also work without taking the sea salt solution?
    I'd like to do the master cleanse soon but the thought of having to flush down sea salt makes me sick already. Does anyone have any experience whether the detox still works if I only drink laxative tea but no sea salt?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Songbird;
      The cleanse will work fine if you avoid the salt water flush and use a laxative tea instead. Drink the tea at night before you go to sleep. Wishing you health!

  15. QUESTION:
    What are the best brands to use for the master cleanse diet ?
    I plan on starting the first step, which is called it ease-in, on Monday. I am wondering if anyone has done the Master Cleanse, how successful they were, & their recommendations. Mainly, what brands of the cayenne pepper, syrup, & everything else, & where's the best place to get it all locally. I live in the metro area of Detroit, Michigan. Thanks!! >.<

  17. QUESTION:
    How can I lose 9 pounds in 4 days?
    I understand that this is not the healthiest thing to do, but it is very important- I have a party, School Recognition Day, and a swim party to go to.

    The point is, most suggestions are the Master Cleanse Detox drink (lemonade, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, water), but I am unable to do this. What are your suggestions?
    Thanks!
    I currently weigh 121 pounds, and I am 5'" (so my BMI is 20 [normal])

    • ANSWER:
      no its not the healthiest thing to do, but im not gunna tell u what u should or shouldnt do, if u wanna lose that much, drink lemon and hot water as it speed up matabolism, eat 5 small, healthy snacks a day (about 150 cal in each snack) and exercise, but remember, the weight will pile back on after as ur body will go into starvation mode, so be careful not to eat huge meals again straight away as ur stomach will have shrunk.

  18. QUESTION:
    What is your take on eating a cup of brown rice a day during the master cleanse?
    My dietitian told me to do the Master Cleanse for three days to jump start my diet and also said that it would be good to eat a cup of brown rice at night to help with blood sugar problems. I have looked for info on this all over the internet and haven't found that anybody else is concerned with this also. Your thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      I would get a new dietitian. Is this person a member of the American Dietetic Association?
      Our bodies contain the #1 tools essential to cleanse and detox. A liver and a pair of kidneys.
      The only and easiest way to cleanse and detox is to stop putting all the chemicals, additives and concentrates from a diet of processed and refined foods in our daily diet.
      Most drugs, alcohol, and food chemicals exit the body through normal processing and filtering by the liver and kidneys over a period of 3 to 4 days.
      A healthy diet of whole fresh foods is the key to "cleansing" and "detoxing".
      There is no miracle diet or product that will accelerate the process.
      Our bodies are designed starting with the teeth to consume whole solid foods. The stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, and colon are all designed to work with solid foods, not highly concentrated juices. That is why we have teeth instead of blender blades in our mouths.
      Both soluble and insoluble fiber are part of a healthy diet. Juicing substantially reduces the value and effectiveness of insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber keeps the nutrients and toxic cellular waste dumped back into the lower small intestine moving through the digestive tract. This reduces the amount of time waste spends in the body and lowers toxicity.
      While juicing concentrates nutrients, it also concentrates natural sugars in fruits. Liquids are absorbed much quicker in the small intestines resulting in spiking of blood sugar and insulin levels in the blood.
      WIthout complex carbohydrates and large insoluble fibers in the digestive system to extend and slow the absorption process, insulin spikes occur too often. A simple example is giving a diabetic with low blood sugar a glass of juice. It enters the bloodstream quickly. Constant insulin spikes increase appetite stimulation. So you can end up drinking even more juice. The problem with any fast or cleanse is things will change when it ends.
      A healthy life diet of whole fresh foods including lean meats, eggs, fish, dairy, whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables are the keys to health, proper weight, and overall wellness. Avoid as much processed and refined food as possible.
      Long I know but it is important to point out the change to a clean diet is the key yet we readily give the credit to the pill, potion, diet pill, detox, cleanse, or fad diet.
      Good luck and good health.

  19. QUESTION:
    Will the Master Cleanse diet be affected if you do use different ingredients?
    I'm doing the Master Cleanse right now and I checked the internet last night and realized that I've been using Grade A maple syrup instead of Grade B. Also, this morning, I used lime juice instead of lemon juice.

    Will these slight changes affect the diet?

    • ANSWER:
      you can use honey and molasses too if you didn't have access to pure maple syrup.
      so the pure maple syrup you are using is fine.

    How many of you done the master cleanse diet?
    Do you have to be on a diet while your on the master cleanse diet? Does it really work? On a scale of 1-10 what do you rate it? how much weight have you lose? is it fast? Do you still have to excercise? if i wanted to lose up to 25 pounds how long will i have to stay on it? thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      The main purpose of the Master Cleanse is not to lose weight but to detox. If you don't eat a healthy nutrient dense diet the master cleanse will not give you permanent weight loss. You will gain it all back. However the cleanse or any viable fasting program such as a water fast or juice fast will correct things like high blood pressure...

  21. QUESTION:
    How do you do the master cleanse if you work a mixed schedule?
    I work 3 nights and 2 days a week and I want to do the Master Cleanse. Has anyone ever done the master cleanse while working the 3rd shift. Is there anyone who can give some suggestions.

    • ANSWER:
      Detox pills, and detoxification and cleansing in general, are neither useful nor necessary unless you have had long-term narcotic use or are chronically constipated. Detoxification and cleansing has no proven medical benefits for the average person whatsoever. It will NOT help you lose any significant amount of fat. Your intestines are clean unless you use large amounts of muscle relaxers, or have serious digestive illness.

      The only thing that will help you lose weight is a healthy lifestyle that consists of a proper diet and frequent exercise.

  22. QUESTION:
    How much weight could be lost on a 10 day "Master cleanse" diet?
    How much weight could be lost on a 10 day Master cleanse diet for someone who weights 80 kg/176lbs. I asked the same question for a water fast (drinking only water).
    My goal is to cleanse/detox my body and lose weight (fat and water, since you rarely lose fat without water weight).

    Thanks ahead.

    • ANSWER:
      your body needs neither cleansing nor detoxing, and fasting will make you put on weight even faster as soon as you stop. Of course if you don't stop fasting you will die. 'water weight' is nonsense.

      no 'cleanses', no 'water fasts', no pills, quack remedies, magic spells. If you actually want to be thinner, you need to eat less, eat healthily and move more. There are no quick fixes but there are a lot of scams and a lot of ways to make things worse.

      think how you got like this - what do you eat? How much exercise do you do? Do you use quack remedies?

      you know what you have to do.

    • ANSWER:
      You are really just looking at a painful and drawn out way to empty your entire digestive tract.
      The lemon detox/master cleanse diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose up to 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system. At your current weight it will only be 2 or 3 pounds. So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it? Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system.
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available. The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to convert muscle and even organ tissue first for fuel instead of the stored fat. Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed. The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.

      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!

  26. QUESTION:
    Is it common to feel ill while on the master cleanse/lemonade diet ?
    Well I've been on the master cleanse for three days now. I have been following the rules pretty well and I'm just wondering if its common to feel ill on it. The first two days I felt absolutely no sickness but this morning I got three hours of sleep and woke up really sick, dry heaving and everything. I have no fever however, I was just wondering if this is common on the master cleanse or is this just normal sickness caused by some sort of virus ?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi
      I felt weak for the first 3 - 4 days. I did feel ill when I think about it. I remeber having great difficulty I think on day 3 trying to consume the Lemon and syrup mix. This all passed however after day 4. Only other thing was there were a couple of nights were I just could not get proper sleep. i believe you are probably experiencing a normal condition associated with following the diet strictly.
      Good luck.
      i thought I would paste an answer to another question below as it may contain some usefull info (but maybe not) for you.

      I have just completed a similar detox (though I purchased the actual Madal Lemon Detox. the syrup is a combination of palm and maple.
      In the promotional booklet, I believe it mentioned that you should not spend more than 14 days on the cleanse without first seeking medical advice.
      The mix I used was 140ml with arround 4 - 6 lemons and 1/2 tsp of cayene pepper and added suffcient water to make 2 litres.
      I had a cup of Senna tea at night (for me this was gross) in the morning I used to drink 1 litre of water mixed with 3 teaspoons of sea salt. (this was drunk within about 10 minutes on an empty stomach) The sea salt mix travels through the body quickly and be sure to stay close to the toilet for about an hour.
      So per day, I had 1 litre of salt water, 1 - 2 litres of pure mineral water the 2 litres of prepared Lemon detox mix and the horrid Senna tea at night. ( it may just be a personal dislike of the Senna tea, as I havnt noticed anyone else complain about it)

      I stayed on this for the full 14 days. I had big difficulties up untill day 4 I felt weak, and my weight appeared to have actually increased!!
      After day 4, it became quite easy as if something in the body just switched over. I would have had no problem staying on it longer, but I thought 14 days was probably long enough without solid food.
      Incidently, I felt that I suffered significant muscle wasting using the diet. I did little or no exercise as my understanding is if you do a lot of exercise while on the diet you will lose muscle. This was the negative side.

      the positive side?? I did actually feel better physicaly and mentaly. I felt motivated and commenced an exercise program (after completion of the diet) and my weight loss?? Well I droped arround a stone in weight and the weight loss was noticed by everyone I new. So, for me it was worth while.
      Good Luck.

  27. QUESTION:
    Is it okay to make a gallon of the master cleanse for work?
    I am about to start the master cleanse and i will have to work in the afternoon so i was wanting to make a gallon and just keep it in the cooler at work so i won't run out. would you suggest this?

    • ANSWER:
      I lost my weight through diet and exercise.
      The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism). Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.

      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.

    Is the Lemonade diet effective in weight loss?
    I would like to lose weight, even water weight uickly. Do you know anyone who had tried the lemonade or "master cleanse" detox/diet?

  29. QUESTION:
    How do I make the drink for The Master Cleanse diet?
    How do I make the drink for the master cleanse diet? What are some results that people have had? I am not doing this for weight loss, but to lose a few pounds would be great. I want to clean out my system, since I recently quit smoking. Does anyone have success stories doing this diet? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      One thing that will help you lose weight: a colon cleanse. I was one of those who did not believe in them until I tried it. And I tried a few until I found a great one that works (its all natural too! - it's just pills, but you'll detox, lose weight, and fell much, much better). You can go to

  30. QUESTION:
    How to cleanse my body in a natural and fast way?
    I want to know what's the best way to CLEANSE or DETOX my body (all organs). I'm going through vigorous training, so I need to eat, that's why the faster the method, the better. I was going to try the "Master Cleanse" but it's a 10 day fast and I don't now if I can do it...My goal is to reset my body, have everything clean to where all my nutrients are being absorbed properly, and processed well. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Take psyllium husk and coconut oil before every meal. This is a very gentle but effective colon cleanse. The psyllium husk is pure fibre and will 'scrub' the inside walls of your digestive tract. The coconut oil lubricates everything so foods passes through more easily and is also antibacterial and antifungal so it cleans. Also regularly eat foods that are high in Probiotics. I like kefir (strawberry flavour tastes like a fruit smoothie!) But yogurt and fermented vegetables are also good sources. Good bacteria helps you digest better

      Drink bitter teas after each meal. This may not sound pleasant but bitter foods stimulate your liver and help strengthen it so it works better. Look for ingredients like dandelion, burdock, milk thistle, licorise, cinnamon, etc. Don't take capsules, they are way less effective

      Drink lots of water, this flushes out your urinary tract (kidneys, etc). If your tap water has fluoride added, drink bottled instead. Fluoride is a chemical that is not good for you! If your water is fluoride-free but contains chlorine, boil it or leave it out overnight. The chlorine will evaporate and leave your water clean but chemical free

      And obviously, if you really want to detox, you should avoid putting more 'toxins' in your body. This means you should avoid all drugs (including pain killers, cold meds, etc), alcohol, caffeine, and processed foods

  31. QUESTION:
    Can someone give me all the ingredients for the diabetic master cleanse?
    I'm a pre diabetic, please don't say not to do it. I have made up my mind to do the cleanse. I've done it before when i wasn't a pre diabetic. Does anyone know ALL the ingredients to the diabetic master cleanse?

    I would appreciate it!

    • ANSWER:
      The Diabetic Master Cleanse is a revolutionary diet system that was designed by Stanley Burroughs to detox and cleanse your body in just 10 days, all naturally and not damaging your health like some of the other detox diets do.

      The system does work, very well. But first you need to know the master cleanse directions before you can do it properly.

      1.) The Ingredients

      The main secret weapon of the master cleanse is the famous lemonade drink. You will need to make sure you have water, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper, grade b maple syrup and sea salt.

      2.) The Recipe

      Next you need to mix the ingredients (preferably using a blender) so that you have:

      2 tbsp of Lemon Juice
      2 tbsp of syrup
      1/10 tsp of red cayenne pepper
      10 oz pure water (mineral, not tap water!)
      1 tsp sea salt

      Once all of this is properly mixed together and you have your lemonade mixture, move onto the next step of the master cleanse directions.

      3.) How to drink it

      Now you have the drink, you need to consume the drink around 4 times per day. Good times for this are usually breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bed. You need to drink a good glass full each time and you can eat normally (but healthily!) and don't have to starve yourself or anything horrible like that.

      4.) Keep going for 10 days

      Yes, in just 10 days this great diet will have cleansed and detoxed your body and you should be feeling a lot better both physically and mentally. It really is that powerful and starts to work very quickly indeed.

  32. QUESTION:
    Is healthy if I do both acai berry and the lemondae diet master cleanse?
    I am desperate to lose about 20 pounds in 4 weeks. I am drinking only water and fruits and vegetable. But I want to speed things up so if I use BOTH the acai berry and the lemonade diet master cleanse, do you think it will work ?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't do this to yourself please. You may lose weight now, but you are setting yourself up for massive problems in the future! See the review on the lemon detox diet below, and then also read the article below that on how to boost your metabolism. Much better to go about it the healthy way.

      Acai does not help for weight loss at all, so don't waste your money there. Review also included for your reference.

  33. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the master cleanse is it only for over wieght people?
    I have been lookin into the master cleanse for awhile and it seems like that extra boost I need. I dont really need to loose weight maybe just a little bit on my stomach. I am also trying to gain weight, when i say weight I mean muscle mass. But I wouldnt mind having that extra energy also I have been eating alot healthier No fast foods, No soda, & no chocolate or candy. Are there other benefits besides wieght loss sorry for the length of questions thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I havent tried the master cleanse but I researched it too on the internet. It is basically a detox for your body, I think. But there are healthier ways of doing that without starving yourself and only drinking liquids for two weeks! Try doing a healthier detox which will give you energy and lift weights and do resistance training to gain muscle mass.

      For my detox, I ate lots of fiber and protein like salmon. Drink water with some lemon juice, talke vitamins(omega fish oil, probiotics) and soak yourself in a warm bath with epsom salt to get rid of toxins in your body. You're doing great so far with eating healthier and not drinking soda!

      Also, green tea is good for you. It is a good source of antioxidant which will benefit you!

  34. QUESTION:
    I am taking the master cleanse and i was wondering when you are done taking it will you gain your weight?
    I have been of the master cleanse for 9 days now. I have lost 15lbs since i have been doing it, but I was wondering will I gain my weight right back after I am done?

    • ANSWER:
      100% yes. You may not gain it back immediately, but you'll definitely gain it back eventually. Especially if you don't have a lifestyle that promotes healthy eating and exercise. Some people also gain back more weight than they had initially started off with (especially if you've dieted before).

      Just as a note, restrictive detoxes such as the master cleanse really deplete you body of nutrients and minerals. So when you're done, really make sure to be conscious of what you are eating =)

  35. QUESTION:
    Is pomegranate juice good to drink to detox my body?
    I really want to detox my body naturally. I've heard of the master cleanse (the beyonce diet) but I doubt I can go 14 days without eating. Is pomegranate juice a good choice? Also, I heard cranberry juice and greentea was good for detoxing also.

    • ANSWER:
      a natural pomegrant works better then the juice because to the juices they add stuff to it inless you like make it yourself and squeez the pmegrant but never read the top ove the bottle read the nutrioun facts that tells the most truth

  36. QUESTION:
    I want to do a juice fast, master cleanse diet and water fast. In what order should I do this?
    I want to start out on the easiest, least intense fast, then work myself to the next one, and then finally into the water fast. What order should I do this in? I dont want to just jump into water fasting, so I think this will be best. I already have all the juice and master cleanse stuff bought, cost quite a lot of money so Im GOING to do it.

    • ANSWER:
      Whichever one you decide to do, at least 3 days before (recommended a week) try and cut out meat and/or dairy from your diet. It takes a lot for the stomach to digest these types of foods, so by taking this away is a helpful jump-start for you digestive system, and to get your tastebuds used to new foods. A day or two before I'd go strictly to raw foods.. cut out all processed stuff, this will help with your system as well. It has already started to undergo the cleansing process before you've even started! How cool is that?
      I'm not sure about the order or master cleanse/juice fast... I don't think it will really matter. Never thought about doing them back to back... I'd suggest the master cleanse first, since it is meant to clean out your entire system. The whole point of the cleanse is to "detox" your body from all the junk we've put into it over the years (do you know that we can hold up to 7 lbs of unnecessary build-up in our colon? We've got build-up everywhere, our intenstines, our livers, etc)... so I'd cleanse first. Then I'd reintroduce the body with good, whole foods... cue the juice fast. So now your body's all clean, you'd only want to put good things into it. Your tastebuds will have already changed, and sweet/salty/processed foods won't seem as appetizing. The juice would mainly serve as a stepping stone into a healthy lifestyle! (Note: when you do come off the fast, don't opt for that cheeseburger you've been jonesing for... your stomach will NOT know what to do with it! So not only will you have serious indigestion, it will be a huge step backward into what you've been trying to remedy in the first place!) After the juice fast, introduce healthy, raw foods again for the first day or two (depends on how long you're doing this fast), and then add in a food group each subsequent day (meat, dairy, etc.).
      Yes, that's the order I'd do it. Cleanse, reintroduce... and when you're up for it... a water fast. (But please: save the water fast for down the line. Your body needs to recover and get back to proper function!)
      Good luck, and have fun! :)

  37. QUESTION:
    I'm on my 2nd day of the master cleanse detox diet. How soon will I lose weight?
    I am 5'11 about 175 lbs. I want to lose weight and I know this is just a detox but it is a detox that cause weight loss. ANyone try it before and what were your experiences like.

    • ANSWER:
      The Master Cleanse detox diet in my opinion is dangerous and unnecessary. Yes, I've tried it, for a full 10 days. But what I noticed is that the weight came right back as soon as I started eating again.

      For me what has been much more helpful is the natural detox diet. I'm including a link here to the program that I use.

  38. QUESTION:
    Is it normal to feel thirstier than usual during a detox diet?
    I'm on day three of a detox diet. I'm not doing one of those fad "master cleanse" or juice diets. I've simply cut out processed foods, meat, etc. I'm also drinking a caffeine free tea that is used for detox. I mostly feel okay, but I've been a lot thirstier than normal. Is this a normal reaction to detoxing? My diet is already pretty raw except I usually am a chocoholic, so that's the main thing that's being cut out.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Tina,
      The Side effects of using detox diet include excessive diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and electrolyte loss. Constipation may occur if people consume excess fiber without also increasing their fluid intake. Other side effects can include tiredness, irritability, acne, weight loss, and hunger. Any worsening of symptoms or new symptoms that occur during a detox diet should prompt a visit to a qualified health professional.

  39. QUESTION:
    best laxative to use while on the Master Cleanse?
    I will be starting the Master Cleanse this Friday and am looking for the best Laxative I can use while on it. Any tips?

    • ANSWER:
      Detox pills, and detoxification and cleansing in general, are neither useful nor necessary unless you have had long-term narcotic use or are chronically constipated. Detoxification and cleansing has no proven medical benefits for the average person whatsoever. It will NOT help you lose any significant amount of fat. Your intestines are clean unless you use large amounts of muscle relaxers, or have serious digestive illness.

      The only thing that will help you lose weight is a healthy lifestyle that consists of a proper diet and frequent exercise.

  40. QUESTION:
    Will the master cleanse work if I use grade A maple syrup?
    I've started the master cleanse, and I noticed I bought grade A maple syrup. Will the detox still work?

    • ANSWER:
      some of you are having trouble tracking down grade B maple syrup. It might not seem like a big deal to substitute regular commercial brand maple syrup, but it actually is. The refinement process for comercial syrup strips it of its minerals, and while you’re on the Master Cleanse it’s important that your body gets the vital nutrition that grade B maple syrup provides.

      If you can’t find grade B maple syrup my advice would be to try your local health food store. You can also check your regular grocery store, but be sure to check the product labels yourself because most store employees probably won’t no the difference between grade B maple syrup and regular maple syrup.

    Is it ok to take xanax while on the Master Cleanse?
    I am on day 2 of my master cleanse and my doctor has prescribed me xanax and wondering if it is ok? Any health issues I should worry about.

      Lack of food will intensify the effects of the drug.

  43. QUESTION:
    When will i feel the effects of the master cleanse?
    So im on day one of the master cleanse
    when will i start feeling the "effect"?
    i couldnt find grade b maple syrup so i got grade a is that ok ?
    Also i want to do the sea sal water flush but i cant keep it down is there an alternative to do this? can i mix it with a flavored water or something?

    • ANSWER:
      Why on earth are you putting yourself through this?
      As for the maple syrup I don't know why they are so picky about the grade, it's mostly there to provide a few calories. Some people use honey.

      The salt water flush is supposed to be essential. Your body has more sense tan to accept it.

      "Purposefully irritating your gastro-intestinal tract is never a good idea, but salt water flushing actually removes healthy, helpful bacteria from the lining of your colon."

      People do lose weight on the Master Cleanse Diet. The only calories you take in on this plan are from the maple syrup in the lemonade drink, which constitutes a starvation diet. Anyone on this sort of fasting regime for more than a few days is bound to lose weight--but not permanently. Doctors agree, weight lost on this sort of crash diet will return, often with the company of a few extra pounds.

      As the body and the colon are self cleansing, cleanses and detox are a myth.
      Give it up and stop worrying.

      So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it? Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system.
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available. The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to convert muscle and even organ tissue first for fuel instead of the stored fat. Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed. The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  46. QUESTION:
    Can anyone tell me the BEST, natural way to detox the body?
    I want to detox my body of certain chemicals and would like to know the best, fastest and natural way to do so. Im not looking to buy a magic bottle cause they dont work anyway. If you can help suggest a real good way to naturally detox the body that would be great. Ive read so far that "The Master Cleanse Diet" is good, havent tried it yet though. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jen

      You are right in saying "magic bottle cures" don't work, they don't. You need to set aside a period of about 10 days and eat organic fruit and vegetables in their raw state, no animal products, no alcohol and no drugs. Drink plenty of water and do some reasonably light exercise. The main problem is sticking to it cause it's tough. I found that I needed a plan or program which would discipline me into doing the right thing day by day. There are some pretty good detox programs online and some poor ones so choosing the right one isn't easy. If you got to a website which compares detox programs you can find what you need.

      Good luck

  47. QUESTION:
    What are some body cleanses or detox?
    I need to do my annually body cleanse.I'm tired of the Master cleanse,any other types of body cleanses or detox?

    • ANSWER:
      Detox pills, and detoxification and cleansing in general, are neither useful nor necessary unless you have had long-term narcotic use or are chronically constipated. Detoxification and cleansing has no proven medical benefits for the average person whatsoever. It will NOT help you lose any significant amount of fat. Your intestines are clean unless you use large amounts of muscle relaxers, or have serious digestive illness.

  48. QUESTION:
    is the master cleanse better than a juice fast?
    My boyfriend wants to start a juice cleanse, I think the master cleanse is the better option. Which is healthier?

    • ANSWER:
      The master cleanse is a starvation diet that causes weight loss by emptying the entire digestive tract and glycogen stores. It will "cleanse" the body but only in the same way that we can cleanse by discontinuing poor lifestyle choices. You don't "detox" any quicker, just more dramatically.
      Our bodies contain the #1 tools essential to cleanse and detox. A liver and a pair of kidneys.
      The only and easiest way to cleanse and detox is to stop putting all the chemicals, additives and concentrates from a diet of processed and refined foods in our daily diet.
      Most drugs, alcohol, and food chemicals exit the body through normal processing and filtering by the liver and kidneys over a period of 3 to 4 days.
      A healthy diet of whole fresh foods is the key to "cleansing" and "detoxing".
      There is no miracle diet or product that will accelerate the process.
      Our bodies are designed starting with the teeth to consume whole solid foods. The stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, and colon are all designed to work with solid foods, not highly concentrated juices. That is why we have teeth instead of blender blades in our mouths.
      Both soluble and insoluble fiber are part of a healthy diet. Juicing substantially reduces the value and effectiveness of insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber keeps the nutrients and toxic cellular waste dumped back into the lower small intestine moving through the digestive tract. This reduces the amount of time waste spends in the body and lowers toxicity.
      While juicing concentrates nutrients, it also concentrates natural sugars in fruits. Liquids are absorbed much quicker in the small intestines resulting in spiking of blood sugar and insulin levels in the blood. WIthout complex carbohydrates and large insoluble fibers in the digestive system to extend and slow the absorption process, insulin spikes occur too often. A simple example is giving a diabetic with low blood sugar a glass of juice. It enters the bloodstream quickly. Constant insulin spikes increase appetite stimulation. So you can end up drinking even more juice. The problem with any fast or cleanse is things will change when it ends.
      A healthy life diet of whole fresh foods including lean meats, eggs, fish, dairy, whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables are the keys to health, proper weight, and overall wellness. Avoid as much processed and refined food as possible.
      Long I know but it is important to point out the change to a clean diet is the key yet we readily give the credit to the pill, potion, diet pill, detox, cleanse, or fad diet.
      If he is still going to do one or the other, at least he will be getting some nutrition from the juice fast.
      Good luck and good health.

  49. QUESTION:
    Any tips for a newbie starting the Master Cleanse?
    I've got all the measurements correct, just need some advice. If you don't like the Master Cleanse don't comment, no negativity here! :) I plan for 10 days and see how I feel then. Does it matter if the water I use is cold or room temperature?

    • ANSWER:
      1) IMPORTANT: This is a DETOX/CLEANSE not a diet. It has been misconstrued to be a diet but it is not. If your main aim is weight loss, I strongly suggest you don't do this process.

      2) 10 Days is the MINIMUM you should do for the cleanse to do its work.

      3) Definitely do a minimum of a 3 day ease in. Day1: Raw/living foods, Day2: Vegetable broths&fresh juices*, Day3: Fresh Orange juice*

      4) Realize that after you're done you will likely gain AT LEAST half the weight back (if not more) because you're losing water weight.

      5) Do not cheat! Do not do not do not cheat! It can hurt you. (The only "cheat" exception is caffeine-free mint tea)

      6) DO THE EASE OUT! (same as the ease in but reversed, Day1 Orange Juice, Day2 Broths&juices, Day3 Raw/living foods) This will prepare your body to take in more food.

      7) Buy the book. It'll be helpful to you and is only about .

      *I didn't have a juicer so I drank Naked brand juices. Don't get minute maid or tropicana or anything like that. Go for organic and pure like Naked and Odwalla.

      Any more questions about the MC send me an e-mail. I'm currently on Day 9 of the Master Cleanse.

  50. QUESTION:
    Should I still take my thyroid medication if I am trying to do a detox or fast?
    I would like to do the Master Cleanse Lemonade fast to detox my body but I take medication for my Hypothryoid conditon. Should I still take the medication or will my thyroid conditon improve if I dont just from fasting??

    • ANSWER:
      You always need to take your thyroid medication, as you are on it because your thyroid gland isn't producing enough hormone. Without enough thyroid hormone so many symptoms can develop and you'll feel worse.

      I have posted a thyroid website below for you to read up on hypothyroidism.

1 Day Detox

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Would there be any benefit of doing a 1 day detox diet of just eating fruit and drinking juices and water?
    Would there be any benefit of doing a 1 day detox diet of just eating fruit and drinking juices and water?

    • ANSWER:
      To tell you the truth, the only good that will come out of a one day detox diet of only eating fruit, eating drinks and water is that you'll probably end up being really hungry and/or sick and that the next day or night, you'll eat too much and maybe gain a little weight. I suggest that (if you want to lose weight) you try a longer eating regime for like a month or two and see how much better results you can achieve as well as how much better you could feel! I suggest you trying Xenical because it works much better than other diet pills like the Acai Berry!

  2. QUESTION:
    Is it healthy to do regular 1-day detoxes?
    I'm all against those crazy and long detoxes and fasts, but I was wondering if it would be healthy to do a 1-day detox per week? During which you can only eat fruit or vegetables, etc…
    Is that a good idea?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      No detox regime is especially effective. It’s far better to eat a sensible, balanced diet every day of the week, consisting of fruit and vegetables, complex carbohydrates, and a small bit of lean meat. Having said that, precluding any special medical requirements, it’s unlikely that eating only fruit and vegetables one day a week would be especially harmful. Talk to your GP before experimenting with diet alterations, of course.

  4. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for pot to get out of my system?
    Okay well I just got a new job, which I really need too, Im probably going to start within the next 2 weeks. But the thing is I just found out that we need to have a drug test taken before we start there. It is going to be a urine test I know. I am by no means a pothead but a few nights ago (before I had any clue about the test) I had about 2 hits. Before that I havent smoked any pot since about 2 months ago. I am wondering how long will it take to get out of your system. I hear diffrent stuff like anywhere from 1 day to 2 months. I am a very infrequent user and I have a pretty high metabolism so I'm hoping to have it out by the next week or two. I take cranberry supplements and drink cranberry juice everyday (for diffrent reasons) so I dont know if that may help too. I am also on a detox program sort of. (I started before just to be healthy) its a whole body detox, with milk thistle and other crap. I wonder if that may help too? Any help is much appreciated

      You can get something at GNC which is made for that purpose. Better get your butt down there pronto!

  5. QUESTION:
    How can you detoxify radiation from your body?
    My mom recently had 9 mammograms and a chest X-ray all within 2 months. The technician had problems inserting the wires for a lumpectomy and repeatedly subjected my mom to mammograms. (He was reading the X-ray results incorrectly). As a result, she had at least 7 mammograms in 1 day, plus the original one in November which revealed the problem, then a density test to confirm the problem. My question is, how can you rid your body of the radiation? I know it is not safe to have that much radiation in a short amount of time.

    • ANSWER:
      What a great, caring daughter you are. I will eagerly look forward to the answers to this helpful question having received so much radiation for cancer myself years ago and recently receiving mega radiation from many cat scans and xrays given after a horrific high speed wrecks.

      I do know antioxidants help and I took heavy doses of them when I received radiation therapy for cancer and had very few of the side effects they said I would have from receiving radiation in general and more than they usually give due to certain circumstances I had some of the best are grapeseed extract and pychogenol..which is equal to 30 times that found in vit e and 50 times more than vit c. vit e, c, selenium, melatonin, and CoQ10 are antioxidants..there are many more and a quick search will find those.

      First take Dr Richard
      Schulze's intestinal cleanse two. You take it 6 times a day

      it literally draws numerous harmful substances out of your intestines, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead, even carcinogenic radioactive materials like strontium 90. I can give you the formula if you email me and to make it is much cheaper than buying it. I do have Schulze's formula..it works best and is recommended to be taken with formula 1 which I recommend buying as making it makes you couch and sneeze too much when putting it into capsules I have found..some herbs in it does this. Intestinal cleanse two (and one) is found at this link

      http://www.herbdoc.com/p20.asp

      kombu seaweed is found to help..more is at this link find at health food store..the book dining in the raw (get at eBay or amazon or health food store has a lot of good recipes using seaweeds)

      http://www.naturodoc.com/library/detox/Modifilan-about.htm

      Clay help but it is in the formula two so if you take that don't really need to take the clay..more info here
      http://www.magneticclay.com/radiation_clays.php

      from this website

      http://claybaths.com.au/professional/radiation.html magnetic clay baths were recommended here as being very helpful..

      http://www.whale.to/v/cassel.html

      highly recommended is essiac tea which will also help prevent cancer relapse an improve general health http://www.premium-essiac-tea-4less.com/Relapse-prevention.html

      in researching this answer I came across this article http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1018601#i it suggests the whole world has now been exposed to radiation via our use in Iraq of depleted uranium equal to a quarter million Nagasaki bombs so I would suggest we all do these things to try to remove radiation from our bodies. Some think the epidemic of breast cancer stems from nuclear testing in Nevada in the 50s and now we have all been exposed to so much more.

      I gleaned this quote Another simple way to assist in the removal of radiation is to make a simple tea from the culinary herb, Thyme. Use one level tablespoon of Thyme to one pint of boiling water and steep for twenty minutes. After cooling and straining it, suggested recipes say to drink two cups a day. The tea also works toward cleansing and building the blood lymphatics and the thyroid and thymus, in addition to assisting in the elimination of radiation poisoning! Kelp has also been known to help reduce radiation poisoning. A very effective and relaxing way to assist in the clearing processes of radiation from the body is to take a radiation detox bath. These baths include a tried and true, old-time, natural formula containing specialty clays such as Aulterra Clay, (which was tested on Chernobyl victims.) It was found to remove and radiation from the body within 18 hours, and seemed to help clear the body of radiation more quickly! In addition the bath has herbs and spices known to enhance the removal of radiation from the body such as the aforementioned Thyme.

      the same website also talks of success with this -- One is the amazing Spiderwort plant, also known as Tradescantiassp.

      also might try cilantro (like make a cilantro pesto)..this removes heavy metals and may be of help or cilantro tincture./

  6. QUESTION:
    I want to lose weight. Is it a good idea to detox for one day before I change my diet?
    I have a tea that will clean out your system. Is it a good idea to take that for 1 day before changing my diet and starting my workout routine? Also, any good workout videos?

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace dot com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

  7. QUESTION:
    What is a good way to kickstart a diet?
    If you get a good start, you usually are so pleased you keep on the right track. The only thing i have tried before is a 3 day detox, practically starvation, and I don't want to do it again!

    • ANSWER:
      First: DON'T STARVE YOURSELF! It's painful, and starving yourself makes your body resort to cannibalism. Plus, if you lose that weight quickly due to severe dieting, you have a 75% chance of gaining it all back once you stop dieting. Not cool, I know, but it's the truth.

      The best way to diet is to eat less and exercise more. (I have done so much research and diet-searching, and this really does work the best. There is no miracle pill or drink that sheds the pounds.)

      I would suggest starting with 20 to 30 minutes of cardio (swimming, running, jump roping, etc.) for the first week and gradually increasing your workout times. Trust me, just jumping from 0 hours to 2 hours of exercise will only make you feel burned out. Also, remember to give yourself a rest day so you won't feel helpless if you really hate exercising.

      When you're on your diet, remember that every food is good in moderation. Cutting out certain foods, like good fats (which are found in nuts, olive oil, seeds), will not help you lose weight; it'll only compromise your health. Try eating a balanced diet including a little from each food group. Whole grains and low-fat dairy products in addition to a healthy diet and exercise have been known to make smaller waists. Foods rich in fiber (whole grains, pastas, vegetables) will fill you up faster and make you feel full longer. Eat smaller portions and cut back on junk food. Don't make your favorite chips forbidden, or you'll only want it even more. (speaking from experience here.) Try subsituting low-fat frozen yogurt for high-fat ice cream, or potato chips for fat-free Pringles. Do a search on yahoo for recipes light in calories but big on taste, and try some. Getting involved in light cooking helps most people get motivated to eat healthier.

      Counting calories will help, though it's not completely necessary. For your weight loss goals, you want to keep your caloric intake somewhere around 1,500 to 1,700. An active woman should never get less than 1,400 calories a day, and an active man should never get less than 1,600 calories a day.

      Little changes in your diet and lifestyle will help loads. For example, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Keeping a list of heart healthy snacks on the fridge will make junk food less tempting. Instead of topping your cheese sandwich with mayo, make it with a tomato slice instead. Whole grain foods and low-fat milk products have been tested in many weight loss experiments and have been found to help you lose weight. And the almighty sugarless chewing gum: Chewing it helped me stop snacking endlessly and lose 15 pounds over 6 months. (Mind you, it's okay to snack, but it helped me stop snacking on junk food.)

      And finally, don't get discouraged! Dieting takes willpower, but if you really want to have a slimmer, healthy-looking figure and you work at it, the results WILL come up, I promise. Good luck!

  8. QUESTION:
    How can I tame my coarse hair?
    I shampoo with Paul Mitchells Awapuhi shampoo and use regular conditioner, usually with 1-day a week of the conditioner used in hair color product. I also get my ends cut every few months. Please provide me with expert tips on how to fix my unruly hair. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Wash your hair with a Clarifying Shampoo. The clarifying shampoo will "detox" your hair. Then, deep condition with elasta QP DPR 11. Leave the conditioner on for 20 minutes. This will soften your hair and detangle it. I usually wash my hair in the shower cause it is a lot easier to manage. Make sure you comb your hair while you are rinsing the conditioner out. Blow dry with a comb on the end of the dryer. Lastly, purchase a ceramic flat iron. Only do this once a week. The blow dryer and flat iron are harsh, but very helpful, for taming your hair. My hair is very healthy and long.

  9. QUESTION:
    What would happen if I didn't eat 1 day a week?
    I was just curious into knowing what would happen if I didn't eat anything for 1 day a week, but also on that day, I would exercise a little bit more than on other days?

    • ANSWER:
      It's called fasting and people do it all the time for health reasons - Your body spends most of its time and energy digesting the food you eat. When it doesn't have food, it has time to heal itself, get rid of toxins etc..
      the easiest one day fast is to eat breakfast, then nothing for the next 24 hours, but even a 16 hour fast is good for your health. Eating breakfast helps to give you energy for the day. NO, you do not want to exercise more on fasting days.. you will find that you are tired. You should rest when you need to. Drink lots of water. Not only does this fill you up, but it also flushes out all the toxins your body is trying to get rid of.
      How you will feel - everyone is different - hunger pains sort of cycle - you will feel hungry for a few hours and then not be hungry, and then hungry again.. you may feel tired at times..
      the worst part of fasting is if you have a caffeine addiction, you will get a headache. In that case, you will want to cut out caffeine a few days ahead of your fast..
      There are soooo many different ways to fast.. some people only eat fruit and veggies - this is a good fast as it gives your body a break from meat and dairy and junk food.. others just drink juice.. on a juice fast, you can go for days! The first day you will be hungry, the second day you will feel absolutely fantastic (at least that is how I feel!), but by the third day you want to eat again...
      Fasting is good for you, but if you are doing it to lose weight, it doesn't work that way.. when your body thinks it is starving, it slows down your metabolism and any weight you do seem to lose is just water. It will come back on when you end your fast. However, for detox, fasting is great

  11. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to detox 1g of Marijuana smoked over less than 12 hours?
    How long does it take to detox 1 og Marijuana smoked over less than 12 hours? I am 5'9 about 160 pounds, male. I'm referring to being below 50ng.

    • ANSWER:
      It all depends on the frequency on which you smoke marijuana.

      marijuana has a half-life in your system. How long it takes to leave your system depends on how much you smoke. But the time maxes out at around 45 days. One smoking session for someone with a clean system takes about 3-4 days to be clean. Smoke 2 days later and then have to wait about a week, and so on. The time it will take roughly doubles every time you smoke until it maxes at about 45 days to be clean. So if you are maxed out and you wait about 2 weeks and then smoke again, you're basically back to 45 days.
      Marijuana can be detected in urine for nearly a week after smoking. Blood tests can be more accurate, and it might take a month to be totally clear. Hair tests show every drug ever taken when that hair was growing - this is why you see so many drug addicts with shaved heads or buzz cuts, by the way. Also by the way: taking laxatives and drinking wacky chemicals won't "cheat" a drug test. It will just make you go to the bathroom! These drug tests are designed by experts who anticipate what the drug user might do.

      Be very careful of "remedies" for getting around drug tests. They flat out do not work and could do damage to your body.

    This summer I've been smoking every day for the past month or so, and I may be tested in the near future, like 3 days, give or take a couple days. It's caught me off guard, but I know there's a trick of some sort to get me out of this debacle. Anybody know anything that would work besides drinking a lot of water (doesn't work) or putting coins under one's tongue?
    It would be cool if I could get some sort of recipe to make a steaming batch of synthetic urine.

    • ANSWER:
      Cindy's recipe its good but if you've been smoking daily for the past 30 days , will work 50-50
      Niacin does not help in the short term and many drug testing companies are testing for abnormal levels. B12 helps add creatine to the body. B6 will help to add some color to the urine.
      Add some extra info because allot relies on your height,weight,physical activity,eating habits,etc..
      Best will be clean friend's urine (sorry, no recipe for synthetic urine), some good detox/ masking drink , also you can check this web www.urinetestsolutions.com (same company help me to pass a hair drug test) or call them for free consultation.

      How long does Marijuana stay in your system?

      Detoxifying Products for removing THC out of your System
      Purchase Drug Detection Kits Here

      Marijuana ( pot, herb, weed, grass ) is the most commonly used and tested for drug in the United States and several other countries as well. Marijuana’s effects on the user and detection time depend on it’s strength or potency, which is related to the amount of THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) it contains.

      When you ask the question “How long does marijuana stay in your system?” you need to take into account the fact that there is no simple answer to this question. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) can stay in a person's body for as long as 3 to 90 days after smoking or being ingested orally. There are numerous determining factors for how long drug toxins stay in a persons body which vary from person to person, such as the analytical method used, your health, your body weight, metabolism, fluid intake, the type of drug toxin, and the degree of exposure to the drug toxin.

      The speed at which marijuana leaves your body depends both on the speed of your metabolism, as well as on the half life of THC. It’s estimated that THC can have a half life that ranges anywhere from 1-10 days. It’s almost impossible to find out what that half life is, which means that it is very difficult to use it to calculate how long it will take for all of the THC to leave your body.

      For this reason, when you ask “How long does marijuana stay in your system?” you have to realize that it’s very unlikely that you’ll be able to get a usable answer. The most common period of time is anywhere from 3-30 days, depending on your metabolism and the amount of marijuana that you’ve smoked. This is unfortunate, since it means that while most drug tests can only turn up evidence of other drugs if you’ve been taking the drug within a few days of the drug test, marijuana could still be detected in a urine test up to a month after the last time it is used. If you smoke it occasionally it will remain in your system for up to 10 days. If you smoke marijuana on a regular basis it will stay in your system for as long as 45 days, and if you smoke marijuana at a constant pace, it can stay in the body for 90 days, Marijuana is fat soluble. It stores in the fat cells of the body, the brain, the liver, the kidneys, in other words the major organs.

      Hair tests are even worse, since your body stores THC in the hair follicles. For this reason, the previous answers to “How long does marijuana stay in your system?” are only useful if you’re going to be forced to take a urine test. For the hair test, depending on the amount of hair that the company takes, it’s possible that marijuana could be detected up to three years after the last time that you smoke.

      If you’re worried about testing positive for marijuana, then you should definitely invest in some of the great Detoxifying Products for removing THC out of your system that will help you to test negative for marijuana use. This is due to the fact that it takes so long for the THC to leave your system that you’ll probably test positive if you do not. If you don’t have an entire month to wait before you need to take the test, then you should definitely think about some other options to keep from testing positive. If you’re not sure how to tell whether or not the marijuana detox is working, then there are several things that you can do. First of all, you can also purchase a small drug testing kit. Purchase Drug Detection Kits Here This drug testing kit will allow you to test and make sure that you’re no-longer testing positive for marijuana. Just detoxify, and then use the drug test kit to check your urine. After using the drink, it should come up negative.

  17. QUESTION:
    If you found out your friend was an alcoholic what would you do?
    I am in a new relationship and have found out that my partner is an alcoholic. I supported him through a seven day detox program but he started drinking again 2 days later. I would like to be in a relationship with this person over the long haul but this lapse (he has been detoxed 4 times but always relapsed) has made me a bit hesitant. I am asking myself whether I should walk away now or give it a try. My ex husband had another type of additiction - gambling which ended up really badly.

    • ANSWER:
      I am a recovering alcoholic and addict. Sober 3 months on Jan 27th. I had 1 year of sobriety and then relapsed April 06 and I am just now getting 3 months back of my sobriety. He will only help himself if he wants to be helped. I think the real question is about you. I know that you probably know he is wrong for you, but you ask anyway. We learn from mistakes, or most of us do. If your husband had a gambling addiction, alcoholism is the same concept. Why do you repeatedly choose these kind of men? This would be a codependant relationship. You can do a search in any search engine on codependant relationships and read forever about it. A piece of you is possibly missing that these addicts fill in you and people with addictions seem to cling to people whom they can abuse in some way shape or form. People who feel sorry for them, or will put up with them. Most addicts also have very low self esteem. I think you need to make a huge list of what your dream man is like and search until you find him. The stronger you make yourself inside the stronger the type of people that you will attract in your life, the happier you can be. Addicts are weak. You are you, you are the only one who makes your decisions, and if you feel you deserve this type of thing then I guess you feel that, because once again people are not ready to change until they are ready and there's nothing anyone can say or do to make them choose something different. Being alone is better than being with an alcoholic, and then if he does seriously want to get help one day in the future and he is in rehab, most people end up single coming out of rehab. People grow so tremendously during this stage of recovery that they normally leave their partner in the dust and in the end no one benefits. You are asking for a broken heart. Learn to love you and someone will love you like you have never been loved before.

  19. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to detox when a person is addicted to crack?
    This person was addicted to crack, this person spent 3 days at a church in a bathtub being prayed over. When this person got out of the bathtub, they were no longer addicted, they were delivered. Has anyone heard of this method and with how your body reacts when it is detoxing, Is this possible?

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxing is one thing but cleansing the mind is something else.

      Being detoxified - having toxins removed doesn't change the urge at all. Crack cocaine only stays detectible in the body for 1 to 5 days where a urinalysis is concerned.

      The only way for someone to permanently stop smoking crack is to take away their access to it, take them out of that environment, take away their ability to get it, or correct the reason they use it in the first place. Cocaine is a powerful substance. It enhances so many senses that its a difficult feeling to replace or go without...despite the harm it does. That's why its illegal. 3 days in a bathtub doesn't sound like enough.

  20. QUESTION:
    Do you have any NON-WHEAT bread recipes?
    I am doing an intensive 7-day detox and must make all my food fresh with organic ingredients! I am not allowed any wheat! I need some bread recipes please!
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      banana bread

      INGREDIENTS

      * 2 cups all-purpose flour
      * 1 teaspoon baking powder
      * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
      * 3/4 cup white sugar
      * 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
      * 2 eggs
      * 2 bananas, peeled and halved lengthwise

      DIRECTIONS

      1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine.
      2. Select the Dough setting, and press Start. Mix the bread for 3 to 5 minutes until the bananas are mashed and all ingredients are thoroughly combined. If necessary, use a rubber spatula to push the dough from the sides of the bread pan. When 3 to 5 minutes have passed on the clock display, press Stop. Do not continue mixing. Smooth out the top of the loaf with the rubber spatula.
      3. Select the Bake setting, and press Start. The Bake cycle time may vary with machines, but should be about 50 minutes. To test the bread for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center top. Remove the toothpick. If the bread is done, the toothpick will come out clean. If there is dough on the toothpick, reset the machine on Bake and continue to bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Test again with the toothpick to assure the bread is completely baked. Remove the pan from the machine, but allow the bread to remain in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the bread to cool completely on a wire rack.

  23. QUESTION:
    How can a do a detox diet at home by myself?
    Anyone who had done a detox diet, tell me about it. Did you notice changes?

    • ANSWER:
      if you eliminate all processed foods and simply eat fresh, preferably organic, fruits, veggies, and meat/eggs then your body will restore to its default settings(so to speak) and you will start cleansing.

      deeper cleansing involves abstaining from solid food and drinking only fresh organic juice(you would need your own juicer for this). remember: 1 glass of fruit for every 2 glasses of veggie juice.

      the deepest would be fasting from all calories. you would eat nothing and drink only water. 1 cup of purified for every 3 cups of distilled.

      if you cleanse in this order i would do the natural food diet for 3-4 weeks. then juice cleanse for 3-4 days. return to your natural food diet for another 6 weeks. then water fast for 3-4 days.

      if you do this you will feel awesome, lose weight, and look the best you ever have.

      if you're serious you can email me with any questions and i will try to help you out

  24. QUESTION:
    Does Great Plains Bentonite detox get affected, and or become less potent by a temperature change?
    I am using Bentonite clay as a detox, and I initially had it stored in the fridge, but eventually took it out and it is now in one of my kitchen cabinets.
    I only want to know if that temperature change can affect the bentonite in a negative way? Thanks in advance. 10 points to the best answer.
    I failed to mention that I am using the Bentonite you drink for internal cleansing.

    • ANSWER:
      its ok..clay will not get affected by temp changes...check storage details on the bottle

      1. Use liquid bentonite, a colloidal-gel. I mix my powdered calcium bentonite in filtered water to form a gel-like constituency and keep it in a glass jar with a plastic cover. Do not use metal containers or metal spoons with clay.

      Calcium bentonite also called calcium montmorillonite is used for detox purposes whereas sodium bentonite is used for industrial purposes.

      2. Take one tablespoon of liquid bentonite in a glass of water first thing in the morning or at least an hour before food

      It has no taste. But, if you do not like the tasteless taste, take it with apple juice to make it more palatable.

      3. Drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day to help bowel movements.

      4. As a result of its highly absorbent nature, it must be taken at least two hours before taking any medicine. It probably will absorb and eliminate the drug as well.

      5. After a week, if you are comfortable taking bentonite clay as a cleansing agent, increase the dosage to twice a day. First thing in the morning and before you go to bed. You can easily take bentonite clay for a few months, say six months.

      6. After two or three weeks you will find a lot of improvement in your bowel movements and your energy level.

      7. You can also make a paste of the bentonite and apply on your skin to eliminate acne and any form of skin rash.

      8. You can take bentonite clay with psyllium husk, probiotics and even liquid chlorophyll. The homemade colon cleanse in how to cleanse your colon will show you how.

  25. QUESTION:
    What is your take on eating a cup of brown rice a day during the master cleanse?
    My dietitian told me to do the Master Cleanse for three days to jump start my diet and also said that it would be good to eat a cup of brown rice at night to help with blood sugar problems. I have looked for info on this all over the internet and haven't found that anybody else is concerned with this also. Your thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      I would get a new dietitian. Is this person a member of the American Dietetic Association?
      Our bodies contain the #1 tools essential to cleanse and detox. A liver and a pair of kidneys.
      The only and easiest way to cleanse and detox is to stop putting all the chemicals, additives and concentrates from a diet of processed and refined foods in our daily diet.
      Most drugs, alcohol, and food chemicals exit the body through normal processing and filtering by the liver and kidneys over a period of 3 to 4 days.
      A healthy diet of whole fresh foods is the key to "cleansing" and "detoxing".
      There is no miracle diet or product that will accelerate the process.
      Our bodies are designed starting with the teeth to consume whole solid foods. The stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, and colon are all designed to work with solid foods, not highly concentrated juices. That is why we have teeth instead of blender blades in our mouths.
      Both soluble and insoluble fiber are part of a healthy diet. Juicing substantially reduces the value and effectiveness of insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber keeps the nutrients and toxic cellular waste dumped back into the lower small intestine moving through the digestive tract. This reduces the amount of time waste spends in the body and lowers toxicity.
      While juicing concentrates nutrients, it also concentrates natural sugars in fruits. Liquids are absorbed much quicker in the small intestines resulting in spiking of blood sugar and insulin levels in the blood.
      WIthout complex carbohydrates and large insoluble fibers in the digestive system to extend and slow the absorption process, insulin spikes occur too often. A simple example is giving a diabetic with low blood sugar a glass of juice. It enters the bloodstream quickly. Constant insulin spikes increase appetite stimulation. So you can end up drinking even more juice. The problem with any fast or cleanse is things will change when it ends.
      A healthy life diet of whole fresh foods including lean meats, eggs, fish, dairy, whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables are the keys to health, proper weight, and overall wellness. Avoid as much processed and refined food as possible.
      Long I know but it is important to point out the change to a clean diet is the key yet we readily give the credit to the pill, potion, diet pill, detox, cleanse, or fad diet.
      Good luck and good health.

  26. QUESTION:
    Where can I find a good Detox Diet and workout schedule for a competitive swimmer?
    I am completely out of shape and unhealthy, and recently I heard Detox Diets can help.
    However, I have looked for a good one and a good workout schedule, but have found none. Can anyone help?

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest a cleansing diet. I lost 12 pounds in 9 days and then 28 pounds in less than a month. I also lost a lot of inches too! I learned that cleansing will help the body get rid of impurities. Impurities come from a lot of things like fast food, pollution, food additives and preservatives and lots of other things. The impurities get stored in the fat in our body. To get rid of the fat, we have to get rid of the impurities by cleansing the body. This made sense to me and I decided to try a cleanse program and it worked. The weight came off fast and this kept me motivated to keep going, not like other diets where the weight loss it too slow. I did Jenny Craig, Weight Watcher and Medifast. If you want to learn more call the toll free number 1-877-587-4647 or check out the website. This was the first time I ever did a cleanse, it was easy and I feel better. Good luck whatever you decide to do! http://diet4cleansing.com

  27. QUESTION:
    How to rise back out of the friend zone with girl?
    I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE FOR HOW LONG THIS IS. ITS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAN ANYTHING IN THE PAST 4 YEARS OF MY LIFE.
    So this girl and I had a pretty good relationship (but not boyfriend and girlfriend) this past semester.
    Consider the following:
    We have a lot in common. We both keep in shape, hate winter, are both relatively quiet people compared to most college kids, like a lot of the same movies and TV shows, we were both "losers" in high school, and unfortunately both of us have serious self-esteem problems. Where we really differ is how hard we are on ourselves when we mess up. I am almost completely unforgiving of myself, while she forgives herself for her own mistakes rather easily.
    Things were going very well for awhile. That is until 5 weeks after our first kiss, at which point I got really drunk at a party with her and acted like an idiot. I went to detox and called my close friend over the phone who went with me. He told me out of everyone there with me (7 other people), she was the most concerned, followed by him. She apparently was in tears before I was taken off to detox, and that he was damn close to that. The following day I texted her asking her if we could talk. She ran up to me and hugged me and then we talked about it. I said there was absolutely no excuse for my actions and that she doesn't deserve any of what I put her through. She said she forgave me and that we were okay. That same night she was asked to go out to a party, but instead she stayed with me and we cuddled and watched a movie. I told her she was on my mind all day at detox, which she was. I wasn't crying in detox because I was in detox. I was crying because I had the strong belief that I let her down and that it was over between us (didn't tell her that part though).
    All was going well for the next 2 weeks. We went to a very nice movie theater and I bought her her favorite chocolate for X-mas. She got me some goodies too of course. The day before X-mas break we talked about something important. Defining the relationship. I said I still liked her, and she said she still liked me. We slept in the same bed. I told her she could have slept in her own room if she wanted to, but she said she liked where she was. I asked her why and she said b/c of the other person in it.
    Over Xmas break I was supposed to pick her up from her house and take her to a play. I got lost on the way to her house and was an hour late, and completely flustered and nervous by the time I got there (because I was late). Being so hard on myself, I was overly apologetic and I brought up that this is the 3rd time I've let her down, so I would understand if she wanted to end our dating relationship. I was just ripping on myself in front of her on what a bad date I am. She told me that she would just like to be friends, but not because of me being late or messing up in the past. She said we could have done something else fun instead, but that I was too damn pessimistic to realize that. She said I'm a good person and that she still wants to hang out with me, as friends. She told me I don't love myself at all, to a point where she can't like me as more than a friend. That for others to love you, you have to love yourself. And that I need time to do that. I told her she was right (which she is), and that a change is necessary for my own sake. She said twice that she would reconsider me as a romantic interest if I learned to do that (which I still haven't 2 weeks later). Anyways we are going snow tubing/sledding 1 week from today. Any suggestions on what to say or do (or not to say or do) in the coming months of college to make a "comeback" from the friend zone? I care about her a whole lot and I want her to be happy. She obviously cares about me or she would have just said "screw you I don't want to see you again you are not worth my time." She's the coolest girl I've ever met. She's not at all like a lot of the single college girls I've met (obnoxious whores). I've apologized enough times so none of that. I want to ask "Is there anything you said in the car with me that you want to take back?" or "Did you mean all of what you said in the car?" I mean after all I was holding back tears, so she could have just been saying things to try to keep me from crying.
    Hey Kenneth, aka wisea*s, I said this particular event(s) is more important to me than anything in the past 4 years of my life. Never said I've known her that long. In fact, I've only known her for 4 months. Of course I am going to date other women in the meantime, but this one really stood out among the pack, and not necessarily because of just looks either.

    • ANSWER:
      Oh My Goodness, Calm down. You are really a THINKER. Has it ac cured to you that you might just be over-thinking everything? You said it yourself, "she obviously cares about me". Your friend is right, if you love yourself then others will find it easy to love you too. You need to do some positive affirmations in the mirror and be very thankful and grateful for who you are and what you have. True friends are very rare. We have a lot of people in our lives who claim to be our friends but are merely passing thru to deliver lessons. Thank your friend for being honest with you and ask her to help you improve your character, you might end up with a connection.

    What is a good natural, supplement free detox for the kidneys and liver?
    I want to avoid taking any supplements as i have a heap of allergies so i was thinking lots of water and vege juices etc. any ideas?
    Alternatively, how important and beneficial are the common detox supplements ie. milk thistle etc. for this sort of thing.

    • ANSWER:
      I like the old fashion mixture of apple cider vinegar, honey, lemon, cayenne, and water. mix a gallon in these parts and drink every day for 1 week.

      3/4 gal. water
      3 tbsp. Honey
      dash of cayenne
      fill the rest of the gallon with the apple cider vinegar

      It is good for detox and boosts metabolism. I would recommend a mostly vegan diet during this time. Use a lot of nuts or natural nut butter for protein. Grains in the morning, peanut butter at lunch, salads for dinner. Fruit and vegetables for snacks. I do this twice per year for detox and also recommend it to my patients. I also use supplements but it is not necessary. If you want more info on a regular healthy diet and exercise program I will send you my e-book for free. just let me know. Good luck.

    • ANSWER:
      This will act as a detox. Basically clearing your system "flushing" it if you will. However this is extremely unhealthy it's really only recommended for people with some sort of stomach problem/poisoning or others getting ready for some sort of surgery. If you REALLY want to get slim there's only two thing that I have found that work for me.
      1) Coffee & eating breakfast as soon as possible
      2) Run run run!
      eating breakfast as soon as you wake up, no matter what it is speeds up your metabolism. (even if it's a banana and a cup of yoghurt.
      Running is how everyone i know lost weight, didn't matter how much they worked out, that just builds muscle if they didn't run, they didn't lose weight.

      And a tip for you!! My sister is a model, she's required to eat something every two hours. Of course this does wonders for the metabolism and weight loss; but she only eats things in the vegetable category. So in summary, run; eat veggies every two hours as directed by your stomach, wake up early and eat ASAP

  33. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to get 1 hit of weed out of your system?
    I took a hit off a blunt a day ago of some Royal Kush. What's the best ways to get it out of your system asap? I weigh 180ibs and I'm 6'0. I don't want any smart ass comments like just don't smoke it. I heard Green Tea works, but I want what's best.

    • ANSWER:
      One toke or even a joint should work itself out naturally in 5-14 days, depending on your metabolism and amount of body fat. Drink lots of cranberry juice (i mean LOTS, go through a litre or two a day), exercise and drink lots of water to help things along a little faster. I you "must" clear your system (ie for a drug test) then use a 7 or 14 day detox kit as well. If you only have a day or two there are emergency flush drinks you can buy, but some are hit or miss to as how well they work against a drug test, although one hit likely wouldn't register on a dt unless it was the same day.

    Or
    if you have any home detox remedies please share Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      forget all that crap. I once had to detox my body of drugs(a lot of drugs) I'm no expert. but this is what I did to rid the toxins and it makes perfect sense. No need to waste money on a kit IMO. Exercise, the most important thing is sweating, and replace it by drinking water. I drank 4-5 bottles of water and 1 redbull a day for 2 weeks. redbull bc I like it and also bc it has many positives, despite what people say about it. Just look whats in it. so I would try exercising, hydrate, multi vitamins, and get a good nights rest. I suggest melotonin sublingual tablets. This is just my personal exp that worked. Good luck

    • ANSWER:
      CAN BE DONE IN THE USA TOO

      Hydrocolon Therapy - large intestine irrigation - detoxication, and purification of organism.

      The large intestine plays an important role in the human´s digestive tract. That is the reason why we offer you the possibility to purify this part of your organism by Hydrocolon therapy. This method was introduced in ancient times, and its modern form was developed in the US. Owing to this method we can help you to overcome consequences of unsuitable lifestyle, improper regime, and often impacts from taking modern medicaments, especially antibiotics on intestinal microflora.

      Why go through hydrocolon Therapy?
      In curves of large intestines are persistently cumulating food remainders that form culture medium for putrid, and fermentative processes. Yeasts, moulds, and bacteria multiply on these remainders, and disturb natural balance. They also produce increased amounts of toxins (poison) which pass through mucosas, simultaneously are absorbed into blood, and lymphatic systems. In a fundamental manner then weight down the organism, and immune system, and become the reason for an array of medical problems, and illnesses. They as well disturb abilities of intestinal mucosa to absorb significant vitamins, and nutrients. Among frequent complaints that are bound to this process belong for example:

      Acne, skin diseases, psoriasis, various mould ailments, allergies
      Overweight, enlarged abdomen, constipation, articulary problems, rheumatism, high blood pressure, pain in the small of the back
      Headaches, chronic weariness, weakened defensiveness, proneness to illnesses, anemia, bodily odour, bad breath
      Therapy progress
      The procedure is carried out in a lying position on the back by professional personnel - skilled nurses, and lasts approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
      To the client’s intestine is alternately pumped warm and cold water by a tube inserted into the rectum. Uneven temperatures stimulate peristalsis and clean the intestine. Hydrotherapy gently dissolves, and cleanses intestinal contents including toxic wastes, sediment mass, pathogenic micro-organisms, and parasites. Simultaneously activates immune system. Water with dregs is conducted away from the body without you smelling any stench, since the whole system is closed. Clients can observe the irrigated content in a transparent pipe during the procedure.
      Hydrocolon therapy is perceived pleasant, and creating content feeling. The therapy does not cause any pain or spasms. In certain phases of the procedure appears a feeling of full intestine.

      Preparation before the therapy
      One day before the irrigation is appropriate to consume only easily digestible food, for example: yogurt, kefir, puree, fish, pasta, vegetable soup, tea, juice. Inappropriate is flatulent food for example: legume, fresh bakery products, cabbage, kale, raw vegetables, and fruit, meat, milk.

      Recommended number of procedures
      Under the terms of this purgative method are completed 3 to 5 applications out of which are 1 to 3 completed in the first week. After the irrigation is recommended to take a preparation with microbial flora – lactoflora by Pharma Nord company. Subsequently is appropriate to go for a sustentative purification once a year.

      Make an appointment, if you want.

  36. QUESTION:
    How can I 'detox' my body after a weekend of binging?
    I often have sleepovers with friends and it's heaps of fun and everything, but we do eat a lot of junk food and drink a couple of bottles... I do enjoy it but it's a lot of rubbish i'm consuming and the next day i feel crappy. How and what can I do to cleanse my system and get rid of all the crap?

    • ANSWER:
      You could drink lots of water the next day - or even start doing that before you go to sleep the same night. Water will cleanse your system, and rehydrate it.

      But even better than water, is fresh juices (not bottled or canned juices), which not only hydrate you, but give you heaps of nutrition as well. A juice fast, even for just 1 day, will help your body recover after a binge of junk food and alcohol. It's like a mini-detox.

      Get yourself a juicer, get hooked on juicing, you'll feel so much better all the time. Lots more benefits of juicing at the link below.

  38. QUESTION:
    how long should a raw food detox be done for?
    im halfway through the 1st day and already miss other food. my original plan was 3 days, but i want to know what the most effective time amount would be.
    also, my head is really starting to hurt, not sure if its related or not

    • ANSWER:
      You can maintain a detox diet for as long as your body needs it! First, look at what you're eating and drinking on this detox. Is it real food, or is this a powder supplement system you bought? I recommend eating whole, raw, natural fruits and vegetables as a way of life - through your detox process and in your normal day to day routine. Powders can't sustain you for long. Are you drinking enough water? Staying hydrated is important, as is having enough fluid to wash away the waste from your body. But don't be tempted to drink gallons of water in addition to the water-rich foods you'll be eating. Too much water can actually wash away your healthy electrolytes, leaving you depleted! Drink water sensibly.

      Just eat really cleansing (colorful, mostly green, low fat, high mineral content) foods for a day or two, and see how you feel. If it helps, keep at it. If it doesn't help, don't force it. Add more rebuilding foods as you need them. Usually people will maintain a cleansing regime for at least a week, but if you only make it one day, that's one day of kindness you have given your body. And your body will thank you!

      I start nearly every day with a green smoothie. I start with a banana, and about four cups of dark green veggies (usually kale, sometimes parsley, chard, romaine, or spinach.) I add something with a lot of vitamin C and antioxidants: lemon or orange or pineapple or berries. Usually I'll add some kind of seeds for protein and good fats to keep me full: hemp seeds, chia seeds, or occasionally soaked cashews. If you use cashews or hemp seeds, add them to the blender with a little water before you add anything else, then blend them to make "milk" before blending in the rest of the ingredients. If you use chia, mix it with filtered water in a glass on the side, and let it absorb the water for 10 minutes to make a gel. Most days I add a teaspoon of spirulina too, for extra protein, iron, and vitamins.

      Today, my smoothie contained a banana, a peeled lemon, chard, cashews, and chia seeds. If I was thinking more about cleansing, I would not have included the fatty cashews, but would have added more chia and spirulina.

      Meals for later in the day will include a lot of salads. While cleansing, avoid using too much oil and oily ingredients like coconuts, avocados, and lots of nuts. Feel free to have lots of fresh pineapples, berries, and other light fruits, veggies, and sprouts! When rebuilding (and on a day to day basis) on a high raw diet, use more seeds, nuts, avos, and coconuts, as well as pates made from nuts, fruits, and veggies!

      Try making raw veggie wraps - julienne some veggies, like asparagus, carrots, celery, spinach. Take a collard leaf. If it's big, cut it in half, removing the center rib. Dress your julienned veggies in a light dressing (apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, and a little olive oil. Fresh herbs are great too!) Roll the veggies up in the collard leaves, burrito style. For a heavier, rebuilding-style burrito, add some sprout hummus and/or avocado, or a raw vegan taco-meat-style pate made from walnuts and Latin herbs and spices. One collard wrap is obviously not going to fill you up - make a whole bunch!

      This is my favorite hummus. I make it with sprouted sunflower seeds, though the recipe was written using garbanzo sprouts:

      http://www.sproutpeople.com/cookery/hummus.html

      After you're done cleaning out your system with all or nearly all raw foods, reintroduce clean, nourishing cooked foods like brown rice, amaranth, millet, cooked pumpkin or squash, and roasted sweet potato. Personally, I love oatmeal, and all the orange veggies. Usually I try to keep almost totally raw in the first half of the day, and save warm cooked foods for later in the day. Different combos work for different bodies. See what works for you!

      Your headache could have a variety of causes, but on the first half day I don't think it's detox. Do you normally drink coffee/tea/soda/packaged energy drinks/chocolate in the morning? Maybe your headache is caused by caffeine withdrawal. If so, you might consider cutting caffeinated items out of your diet for a month, then try a raw detox regime again. In the meantime, drink enough water and try starting your day with a green smoothie instead of a latte.

      The headache also might just be dehydration, or stress.

      Most important: Keep moving! Exercise helps your circulation, which helps your body wash waste away.

      Your body does a remarkably good job of detox on its own. A detox diet should really just be a healthy diet that supports your body in its natural cleansing efforts! Special weird supplements and powders shouldn't be necessary if you are avoiding excess chemicals, eating a lot of natural fiber, drinking enough water, and exercising regularly!

      Good luck, and I hope you give raw, cleansing foods another try!

  39. QUESTION:
    how much weight will i lose if i eat only 1 salad per day and do intense workout in gym?
    how much weight will i lose if i eat only 1 salad per day and do intense workout in gym by way of cardio and weight training 1 - 1 1/2 hour.

    Im size 8, 5 ft 4.

    • ANSWER:
      This is pretty much impossible. You will be starving and too weak to do that. You won't lose much weight because your body will store all it can get as fat and after this radical diet, you will put on loads of weight very fast because your body will panic & store up for the next fad.

      You should eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of protein for muscle building:

      Breakfast (when you get up, morning starving is unheathy):
      Scrambled egg (2 eggs) & 2 slices of wholegrain toast & thin layer of butter. Beverage: green tea (this is -30kcal per cup & also a great detox) or freshly squeezed orange juice

      Lunch:
      Chicken salad roll (brown roll, no butter or mayo) & small salad. Beverage: green tea, home made lemonade

      Snack:
      Apple or blueberries (blueberries are also a great detox). Beverage: milk

      Dinner:
      Vegetable lasagne. Beverage: berry smoothie

      Evening snack:
      Youghurt

      This daily diet has:
      Carbohydrate: 4 portions
      Protein: 4
      Dairy: 3
      Fruit & Veg: 4 & 1/2
      Fat: Less than 1

      This is a healthy balanced diet suited to a slimming active lifestyle. You're a size 8, you shouldn't be losing weight at all

  41. QUESTION:
    How much weight would I lose if I ate just 1000 calories a day?
    I am a 22 year old woman, am 5'5" tall, and weigh 240lbs. I don't exercise much anymore like I dis in highschool. I use to power walk about a half hour everyday and weighed around 160lbs.

    But anyways... How much do you think I would lose in a month if I ate around 900 to 1000 calories a day and walked moderately or power walk for 2 hours a day?

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some tips:
      Eat breakfast, as it is the time of day in which your metabolism is the highest.
      Don't eat any junk food even if it fits within your caloric limit because you're just eating fat.
      Don't eat bad carbs like bread and pasta. If possible ALWAYS stay away from those bad carbs.
      Drink at least 5 glasses of water a day as it detoxes your body. Keep the water ice cold as drinking 6 glasses of ice water burns 100 calories.
      Drink green tea as it helps kill fat cells.
      Celery has negative calories.
      Get Lose It! iPhone app or fitness pal to track calories and how much you burn. It's free.
      Walking burns over 200 calories an hour. You should follow your plan and walk a ton more throughout the day. I know it sucks but do more chores around the house. If you're focused on rearranging furniture or cleaning a room you're not focused on food and you burn calories.
      And yes, eat 1,000 calories a day. Good job.
      And since you're heavy to begin with, with this diet above, you could lose up to 20 pounds in the first month of trying, as long as you honestly stick with the diet. And in 2 days is New Years. Start then! It's a great resolution!

  42. QUESTION:
    What are you not supposed to eat while on the herbalife 21 day clense?
    would like to know what I can and can't et. Also am I supposed to continue the formula 1&2? how do you use the products? I know u us florafiber power and aloe but how?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't waste your money, the products aren't that good quality anyway. All cleanses do generally is give people holistic diarrhoea. Both body and colon are self cleansing.

      “There are so many contradictions in the detox theory that it is laughable. For starters, the idea that some foods are poisonous and others are not is misleading and factually incorrect.”

      Dr Roger Clements, a chemist at the USC school of pharmacy, said tests have proved that no extra toxins were expelled from the body on detox diets and that suggesting the digestive system needs a break is ludicrous.

      “We have this wonderful thing called a liver and gastrointestinal tract which is quite long,” he says. “Between them, these two manage everything shovelled into our bodies quite well. We are not made to give the system a rest.”

  43. QUESTION:
    What is a good Detox diet for an ectomorph body type?
    I am 20 years old and have been having digestion problems and a few health problem. Yes, I have seen a doctor about it and everything seems to have rational and easily fixed by medication. It was suggested to me that I do a detox diet just to try to clear out some of the bad stuff in my system. But its hard trying to find a diet I can actually do.

    I am about 5'1" and 105lbs. I have a naturally high metabolism and physically need protein though out the day and sustenance or I become ill, light headed, nauseous and irritable. I want to find a detox diet that won't require me to just drink a veggie/fruit juice. My body can't handle just those in a day.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      If you had a high metabolism, you would have a host of symptoms and be under the care of an endocrinologist. If you're lean, it's your genetics...minimal adipocytes.

      If your doctor suggested the detox diet, you need a new doctor. You have some bad information for a 20 year old. You should get some books at the library and study. Don't try to learn from the internet.

      "Detox" is short for detoxification and detoxification is a natural process involving your liver and kidneys and there is nothing you can do to effect it. It is impossible to detoxify a human once the toxin is in the blood with the possible exception of kidney dialysis, kelation therapy, and other expensive medical modalities. Currently "detox" is a faddist word, relatively meaningless, and is used to express that which the users cannot otherwise express because of ignorance or because the expression would be patently false.

      Detox diets, cleanses, and supplements don't work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don't work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

      Check out these reliable references. Listen to experts, not a random bunch of strangers of unknown credibility in this and other forums. Here's what the experts have to say about cleanses.

      Your body cleanses itself naturally. And cleanses, purges, emetics, enemas, alternative and homeopathic colon cleanses etc. cannot remove fat from your body or make your body lose fat and/or toxins. If fat is your problem, you're eventually going to realize that nothing works except a proper diet for life or surgery. The best diet for all normal adults hasn't changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods.

      Detoxification is a fad and a fantasy only. If you have reason to believe you're toxic, consult with your doctor. Don't waste your time paying attention to advertising hype, naturopathic gurus, homeopathic charlatans, etc. The road to good health is paved with science. If you or someone you love gets deathly ill, you will take them to a place where medical science is practiced. So, where is the sense in abandoning medical science in favor of baseless and unscientific methods of quacks and charlatans.

      Good luck and good health!!

  44. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detox without damaging metabolism?
    I wanted to know what is the best way to detox. Is it eating fruit and vegetables only for a few days or drinking lemon juice in the morning?
    Any other ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay...Here we go!

      This is my theory and this is what works for me. Everyone is different so it may need to be adjusted to your own personal needs.

      Energy In/Energy Out

      Food Intake: 1,200 Per Day

      One Pound equals 3,500 Calories

      To loose one pound per day, You need to burn your food intake plus your one pound of fat

      1,200 (intake) + 3,500 (Outtake) = 4,700 Calories Burn

      You must burn at least 4,700 Calories everyday to loose one pound at least. It is very easy to go up and beyond 4,700 calories each day.

      Best way to do this is to track your progress on a calorie counter monitor watch. If you do it by the numbers you can loose the weight. It is just a matter of changing the way you think about weight loss.

      Once you start wearing your calorie counter you can see the numbers increase and you fill find yourself doing extra things in your day, like tapping your foot while waiting at the light in your car, chewing gum, singing out loud and so on onto of your workout routines. You begin to see that everything you do in your day contributes to the overall numbers needed to loose that pound.

      I, myself, have done this recently. Two weeks later, I lost one pant size and 10 pounds. And that is just my current progress. I have used this method previously after childbirth and have gone from 168 to 127 pounds with in two months.

      I personally burn 1,000 calories by Walking in my community for one hour in the morning and I also burn 1,000 calories by simply using a stationary bike while playing xbox. I get so involved in playing xbox that I completely forget I am pedaling or working out. Think about it..How many hours have you spent playing video games..why not burn calories while you are doing it.

      ___

      Water Intake/Less Storage

      Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 to 80 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

      Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day.

      ____

      Good Food

      My favorite things to eat:

      Avocado Wraps

      Simple: Low Carb Tortilla, Half Avocado sliced, alpha sprouts, lettuce, soy bacon...Just wrap it up and eat. You can vary the things you put inside so long as you keep it to approx 4 or 5 items. You want to make sure they are fresh, low calorie and filling. Avocado and mushrooms can replace meats in your meal and still have great taste.

      Special K Cereals are fantastic. They have that sweetness that one craves and is so good for you. Calories are low. Great for even just dinner.

      First thing in the morning...A Glass of Chocolate Milk. Yup!! Chocolate Milk. We all crave that "got to have" item in the morning. Milk is the best thing you can have for yourself while working out. The chocolate (and you can use Carnation Instant Milk for this but I simply use Nestle dry mix) will give you that sweet "snack" that you need. If you give your body a little bit of it and its in a control way, you will not crave sweets and junk the rest of the day.

      Lean Cuisines

      Fantastic food! Each meal is approx 180 t0 380 calories per box. So think about your calories. 1,200...You can still have several of these meals a day and still be under your intake requirements.

      It’s all about the numbers and watching what you take in and what you burn out. And you know what..If you go over your 1,200 mark for food intake...that’s okay...you simple up your total calories burned for the day by what you took it. So long as you burn off the over all calories to be more than your food intake. Just make sure you stick too it so you can reach your weight loss goals.

      Fruits and Veggies

      All you want on the schedule listed below.
      Bananas are my favorite. They are very filling and can make a meal all on their own.

      ____

      Vitamins

      My favorite is ONE A DAY WITH ENERGY...I am in love with this vitamin because I am just like everyone else who loves those quick fix energy drinks. But what people do not realize is that energy drinks can contain 120 to 440 calories in just ONE Can. If you think about it..That is HALF of your allowed calories for food intake. The best alternative I have found is One a day with energy vitamin. Easy to spot, it is packaged in a green label bottle. Just One vitamin a day will give you as much energy as approx. 1 1/2 cans of red bull...WITHOUT the calorie intake.
      WoW..now your making progress already because you have made more room in your intake calories for actual healthy food.

      _____

      Soda/Carbonation

      Carbonation is terrible for your system because it bloats your stomach. And when your stomach bloats, your jeans just don't fit. You can drop one pant size simply by NOT drinking any carbonated drinks all together..Take away the bloat and you have instantly just made it one pant size lower. Besides, Sodas dehydrate you and with that One a Day Vitamin, you won't need the Caffeine in the soda and it will also cut out those extra calories that you don't need.
      So remove that soda and the energy drinks and just think how much calories you just instantly removed from your daily intake. I normally consume what...four sodas and two energy drinks in one day...that is a total of .... 900 calories. Of what??? Nothing...Those are horrible calories and calories that can be replaced by food which will fuel your body for your day and your workouts.

      ____

      Your Body

      Your body is like a computer. You must program your body to do what it is suppose to do so it won't crash and leave you with a virus. Your stomach is only the size of your fist. So think about it right now, Look at your hand and close your fist. Not very big is it. That is how much food you actually ONLY need to eat, each time you eat for every meal. If you eat anything more than that, you will stretch out your stomach which causes overeating and overweight.

      What you need to do is eat every three hours, approx 5 to 7 times everyday around the same time. If you are always giving your body healthy and better food choices (the size of your fist) every three hours, your body will know you are giving it food. It will use that food properly. It will not go into starvation mode or store food away for later because it knows...it will get more in three hours. So what does your body do...it flushes everything out of your system because it doesn't need it.. Now it knows...you wont' forget about it and that food is on its way.

      ____

      Walking Buddy

      This is the best thing especially for woman. Get a walking buddy. One hour everyday. Just think about how much talking, venting and laughing two woman can do together while walking and yup, you guessed it...it just burns more calories and reduces your stress. You now are more relaxed because you can talk and free yourself of whatever is frustrating you while getting into shape.

  47. QUESTION:
    How long and what can I do to pass a drug test?
    This past month, I smoked weed almost every day. Before that, I hadn't smoked weed for 6 months. Last Thursday, I stopped smoking weed, and two nights ago, I slipped up and smoked. I haven't smoked since then, and I'm wondering how long it will take for the THC to exit my body? And what can I do to speed up the process? I've been trying to quit for a while now, and it's proving to be a lot harder than you'd think.

      1] THC stays is detectable in urine for 30 to 60 days, depending on how much and how often you smoke

  49. QUESTION:
    What are some steps to take to pass a urine drug screen?
    "My friend" was smoking a little weed each day and needs to pass a test by the end of the month. He(or she) stopped 3 days ago. Other than drinking lots of water and cranberry juice and taking niacin, what other remedies are there? If you are going to say "Don't use drugs" keep it to yourself, nobody wants your opinion on how to live one's life.

    • ANSWER:
      Marijuana stays in your system for about 30 days as a casual user for a urine drug test. There are things you can do to speed up detox that includes both things you can do yourself and products.

      Be careful of the urban legends that are running around like just drink a lot of water or cranberry juice. These urban legends can get you into trouble quickly with modern tests. Some quick techniques for a urine test are: 1) Test Your self First And Know If You Can Pass , 2) Try Not To Take Your Test First Thing In The Morning, 3) Urinate Often And Right Before Your Test or 4) Use The Middle Of Your Urine Stream For The Sample. Check out other sites and if you feel you need to take a detox product to be safe - do it. A drug test is nothing to mess with.

  50. QUESTION:
    How long would it take me to be able to pass a drug test?
    I haven't smoked weed in the past 3months. I'm going to smoke a lot in one day next week and i won't be smoking any more after that. I have a pretty fast metabolism if that helps. So how long would it take for me to pass a drug test?

    • ANSWER:
      There are lots of ways to pass a drug test, a few are more effective than others. I've had to take one with little notice after I went for a position once and, as a heavy user of cannabis, this obviously freaked me out. After searching the net I discovered that pee tests can detect weed for up to four to six weeks|a month to a month and a half}. I believed I was definitely going to fail until I searched ways to help pass the test, which I am going to list here. A few of these genuinely detoxify your system of THC, while the others will 'fool' the test into indicating that you've got no Weed in your system...

      1) Drink tons of water

      Drinking a great deal of water prior to the test cleanses your system very fast, although temporarily. You notice when you drink loads of water that your urine is clear, meaning it is mostly clear of toxins from your body, mainly the Weed you just smoked. This can be a really successful method, however sometimes testers can determine that you have chugged a lot of water in a small amount of time and they'll think you might be aiming to fool the examination, in which case they may have you take it again on a later date or even give you an automatic failing result. If you would like try a less risky method, you could try...

      2) Synthetic urine

      There are companies that offer fake pee that's really close in chemical make up to authentic human urine. You strap it close to your body, usually the pelvic area, a couple of hours prior to the test so the urine can reach your body temperature (testers that discover that a pee sample is way too cold to have come from your own body will probably automatically fail you). This is a good and simple approach to pass a test, however it won't work if the tester will be watching you provide the sample (which certain places do)...they are going to find out you're using fake pee instantly. Also, the pouch can display a visible bulge which could give you away to a tester, or even accidentaly bust open prior to taking the exam. For a much more surefire way, consider the next technique...

      3) Detox kit

      There are actually kits available that can cleanse Weed from your body very fast. They consist of capsules or in some cases a beverage that you ingest that flushes out the toxins in the body so your test results come up clean. There's no need to worry about consuming gallons of water or walking around with a plastic bag of urine strapped to you, just take what's inside the kit and you're done. This is the method I used and it cleansed my body in just a matter of days and I was able to pass the test. There are actually kits that work in as soon as 1 day and ones that may take up to 7 days to totally detoxify your system, so they are great for people who are surprised with a test in one day as well as for people who know days ahead of time when they will be testing. I personally used the Stinger 5X 7 Day Permanent Detox and it provided me with great results. It's a liquid that all you have to do is drink and it flushes out your system without having bad side effects. It even included drug tests I was able to take at home so I could see I was clean before I went to take the real test. If you would like read up on it or use it yourself I'll provide you the website link below.

      Hopefully these tips make it easier to pass your test. Personally, I think the tests are not fair because cannabis is a pretty harmless drug, but some people do not agree and unfortunately we have to pass these tests to get a job. Good luck!

Whole Body Cleanse

Our world is filled with toxins. They are in the air we breath, in the foods we eat, and in the water we drink. Although our bodies naturally work to remove these toxins, the high levels of pollution that we have today might be overwhelming to our system and, as we grow older, more and more toxins accumulate. These toxins lead to illness, disease and even death. Thankfully there is something that we can do to assist our bodies and that's to be sure to eat foods that detoxify the body naturally.

Organic foods are generally considered to be free of chemicals and pesticides and can assist your body in the detoxification process by not adding additional toxins to your system. It's true that non-organic foods are usually less expensive but the cost to your health can be significant as the toxins they contain go right into your body and place an extra load o your system. Spend a little more now and save on your medical bills later.

One simply has to look at nature to get the foods that detoxify the body best. Fresh fruits and vegetables (organically grown of course) are some of the best detoxifiers. Onions, cauliflower and broccoli are especially good and artichokes are well-known for helping detoxify the liver.

Make sure and use fresh fruits when eating them for detoxification purposes. You can either eat the fruit whole or make it into a juice but either way, make sure and eat it a few hours before or after you eat other types of food. Just about all fruits are good but melons, berries, bananas and apples are especially good.

While it's really popular as a garnish, parsley is actually a good detoxifier and is especially good for helping to flush the kidneys. Garlic can be a potent blood cleanser so it's another good detoxifier. Since it's best eaten raw you might want to try smashing a clove and adding it to the top if pasta or bread. Finally, there are a variety of herbs that can help with a full body detox including milk thistle, dandelion and ginger.

Ensuring that you eat a lot of foods that detoxify the body as well as doing a periodic body detox will assist to offset the accumulation of toxins that can be so harmful to your health.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How to cleanse your whole body naturally?
    I have trouble with energy lately. I wake up and I'm still tired. Although, doctors that I have seen said the same thing; nothing is wrong. My friend's mother suggested that I do a natural whole body cleanse; but how? I have seen many products claiming that they can help you people get back the energy they've once had and lose weight along with it. Can you tell me the best daily diet regimen to cleanse the whole body, lose weight, and weight management after losing the pounds?

    • ANSWER:
      Your whole body, liver, kidneys, skin, guts etc. is a natural purifying system - body cleanses will not make you feel better beyond the placebo effect, which to be fair does seem to work to some degree - if you believe in it that is.

      What should help is to have regular sleeping and waking times with a full night of sleep. Also eat varied and healthily and try to incorporate 6 pcs. of fruits or vegetable in your daily diet and make sure to drink enough water. Daily exercise will also help you feeling more energetic.

      I've found that the easiest and most reliable way to loose weight is to eat healthily and sensibly - and count calories. Look up your basic calorie consumption online - there are free programs that will calculate this for you based on your gender, height, weight and age and based on this eat and drink 500-1000 less calories a day than you burn naturally.

      Example:
      Say your basic calorie consumption is 2000 calorie/day
      This means that if you do nothing, but sit in front of the TV all day, you can eat 1000-1500 calories that day and still loose weight.

      If you jump on your exercise bike for an hour and burn 600 calories, then you can eat 1600-2100 calories that day and still loose weight.

      It's not rocket science and the calorie counting can be a good motivation. If you know that those cookies are 400 calories, then are they really worth that 1 1/2 hour walk, you'd have to take to burn off those 400 calories? :)

  2. QUESTION:
    What should I expect with a whole body cleanse?
    I'm buying a whole body cleansing kit.. it contains a liver, lymphatic system, circulatory, digestive, etc cleanses ... and I don't know how long it asks to stick to the regimen.. but I just recently started getting into a healthier "green" organic lifestyle... and I don't know what to expect with this cleanse (it also has fiber in it, and I already eat fiber cereal everyday) so am I going to feel sick or bloated, or diarreah or what. thank.

    • ANSWER:
      You may have to go to the bathroom more as the toxins in your system are being flushed out. Some people get diarrea, I just had to go # 2 alot more than usual. You may get a few pimples as the toxins come out of your skin as well. I had light colour red rash like dots on my chest. Headaches are also normal as your body is working hard to push all of the toxins out. These symptoms only lasted 3 days for me and then were gone. Good Luck!!

  3. QUESTION:
    how much weight can you lose by using a whole body cleanser?
    Just wondering because I just bought from the vitamin shoppe "whole body cleanse: internal cleansing system" trying to see if it would make me lose a little or a lot of weight. What do you think or know?

    • ANSWER:
      Just depends on how full of sh!t you are :)

      My Hubby lost 20 lbs in one night doing just a liver cleanse-- He was really full of Sh!t.

  4. QUESTION:
    Has anyone worked out while doing a whole body cleaners?
    I am wondering why you are not supposed to and what happens if you do? I am starting a whole body cleanse by enzymatic but am also on a work out program. Also does it help with acne?

    • ANSWER:
      It won't help with acne, but cleansing is a terrible idea. You're denying your body important calories, vitamins, and minerals. You'll slow down your metabolism and you are hurting your various systems if you don't eat for several days. Don't cleanse, it's bad news. Especially if you're working out.

  5. QUESTION:
    Can I do candida and colon cleanses naturally without buying expensive supplements?
    I would seriously like to do whole-body cleanses but supplements are expensive and I don't really trust a lot that ar on the market today? Does anyone know of natural ways to do candida and colon cleanses?

    • ANSWER:
      I read alternative therapy books a lot, and from them I've learned a few things:
      1) Candida is a nasty conditions that causes a lot of problems.
      2) Most doctors don't awknowledge that it exists (and say it's in your head etc).
      3) It's really difficult to treat.

      One of my friends came up to me and told me that she had candida, and explained how it was messing her up and that the doctors she'd seen hadn't really done s**t (or perscribed anything that work). I asked her if she'd tried fixing her diet and not eating sugar. She said she had somewhat, and it helped a little, but it didn't really make a difference. She also had eaten probiotics, which helped a bit.

      I'd recently finished reading a book on oxygen therapies which said candida is exteremely difficult to cure, regardless of what you do, but hydrogen peroxide seemed to actually do the trick very quickly.
      They advocated intravenous injection (which is a pain to do), but I thought drinking it might work as well since candida hangs out in the gut. I had some lying around and I'd used it for other stuff, so I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it. Neither of us thought it would work.
      I checked back with autumn in a few days, and she said that she didnt think it would work, but she started noticing changes after about 3 days, and within 10 most of her symptoms had gone away (in 2 weeks she said she felt like she as 95% of where she had been before, and "wow I can't believe how much candida messed me up").
      At some point, she lost the peroxide I gave her, and then went for about a week without it, at which point she noticed she got a lot worse (to about 50% of where she had been before she started, and said "I hope I don't have to use this stuff for the rest of my life."). We talked about it, and I theorized that the peroxide would probably need longer to completely kill the candida, but it might also be necessary to inject it to get some of the candida hangingou out in the bloodstream outside of the gut (in all the case studies I'd seen where peroxide worked, it was done intravenously, which we did not yet want to do).
      A bit later, while still not having peroxide, she came across a drink called kefir (another strong probiotic one), and started using it. She said that it got her to the last push of 99.9%, and that she planned to use that from now on, and has been fine ever since.
      Total sucesses with candida are very rare (a lot of these herbal things people suggest might work on one person, but never have consistent success since the condition is hard to treat), but I thought I'd share that example since I'm certain it happened (first hand experience), and I'd advise trying something similar.

      Candida normally occurs when you have too many things in your guy that feed the fungus (ie sugar), or your stomach bacteria are supressed and can't contain the fungus. The latter commonly happens when people are overperscribed antiobiotics (which happens a lot since doctors use antiobiotics zealously). Ie, it's very common for people to get a candida infection immediately after being treated for pneumonia.

      In our approach to treating it, we first killed off most of the candida with peroxide. Then once it was mostly gone, we put a lot of friendly bacteria in to put the balance in the gut back to where it should be. I don't think doing the latter will work if the Candida population is there in full force to begin with.

      As far as hydrogen peroxide goes, the stuff is harmless good for you if a few safey measures are followed:
      1) It has to be in a very low concentration (if you drink 30% you will most likely die and it burns skin if you touch it, whereas .05% helps your health a lot).
      2) It can't have toxic additives in it (most peroxide sold does)
      3) It needs to be drank away from meals (when you eat the stomach acids and proteins in gut can turn it into OH-, which is bad for you).

      The procedure she followed was very simple.
      1) Get a little bit of food grade 35% hydrogen peroxide* from me (you can buy it online), and an eyedropper.
      *It should be stored in the freezer if not used.
      2) Put 1 drop of 35% in a glass of water and drink it on the first day as far away from meals as possible.
      2) 2 drops the next day
      3) Keep on increasing* until it feels like you've done as much as feels comfortable (10 is the absolute max, she settled at 7).
      Some people increase at a slower rate, such as 1 drop for a week, then 2 for the next instead of 1 per day.
      4) once it feels peroxide has cleaned you out, switch to kefir (you cannot use both at the same time, since peroxide will kill the recently added probiotics)

      I'm not an expert on probiotics, but I do know their quality greatly varies from source to source, so you need to make sure you get a good brand. All I can say is that Kaffir seems to work well. If you don't want to deal with this, you can also just keep on using peroxide, or consult a doctor that works with oxygen therapies (and say can give you intravenous injections).

      Sometimes when you use peroxide, it will detoxify your system, and cause a lot of crap that was stored in your to come out quickly. This can be unpleasant for a few days (toxic flush syndrome), but once it passes you feel a lot better than you did before.

      Everything I said can also be done with ozone, and ozone colonics for instance work really well (as does drinking ozonated water). However, I do not have personal experience with either and both are more expensive than peroxide (and you asked for cheaper approaches). Oxygen is really good for getting the body to purge and flush stuff out, and if you follow a peroxide regimen it will most likely get a lot out of your system.

      Anyhow, I hope this helps. Candida is very difficult to cure and has a profound effect on people's lives, but hopefully if you follow this you'll be able to get better. Considering how much it helped my friend, I figure it's my duty to pass the knowledge on.

      *Eating foods with a lot of fiber also helps clean the colon out.

  6. QUESTION:
    Whole Body Cleanse - How to DO a Whole Body Cleanse?
    What the best way to do a Whole Body Cleanse and where to find the product that does it all , well if there is any?

    • ANSWER:
      I found an article on how to do it properly you can read it at http://www.howtocurefor.com/2009/12/whole-body-colon-cleanse/

  7. QUESTION:
    I need the recipe for the 2 week whole body cleanse?
    I absolutely must lose at least 10 pounds in 3 weeks. That body cleanse I see on tv might work. Know the recipe or something similar?

    • ANSWER:
      The Master Cleanse
      Most people lose 15 to 20 lbs in 10 days on the Master Cleanse.

      Don't let anyone tell you this a fad diet. It has been around for nearly 60 years. This diet contains all of the vitamins and minerals you need for the duration of fast. And over the years it has helped thousands of people to get trim, healthy and live longer.

      Here it is.

      2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice (approx. ½ lemon),

      2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) organic Grade B maple syrup, not maple-flavored sugar syrup or syrup from companies that use formaldehyde to harvest their syrup,

      1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper (hot red pepper), and

      1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) purified or spring water, NOT fluoridated water.

      For diabetics, there is a section in some editions of The Master Cleanser on using molasses rather than maple syrup in the beginning of the cleanse. Any diabetic should read the book and consult their doctor before beginning the cleanse.

      Drink six to twelve glasses of this lemonade mixture daily. No food is eaten nor any vitamin supplements taken during the cleanse. If you get hungry, have another glass of lemonade. After all, this is also called the "Lemonade Diet."

      If you are overweight, you may use less maple syrup. If you are underweight, use more maple syrup if you wish.

      If you are worried about losing weight, Burroughs says, "The only things you can possibly lose are mucus, waste, and disease. Healthy tissue will not be eliminated."

      Do not vary the amount of lemon juice per glass and be sure to drink at least six glasses of lemonade a day. You can drink more water, if you want.

      I also strongly recommend you take probiotics AFTER the cleanse to replace the good bacteria you lose when you clean your colon thoroughly. These good bacteria manufacture vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B12, and K and help control bad bacteria, such as Candida. By the way, don't waste your money taking probiotics during the cleanse. They'll just get washed out. Do it after the cleanse.

      Enhance Your Elimination
      This is a cleanse as opposed to a weight loss diet. So, you need to ensure you are eliminating the toxins that are being loosened in your system. Cravings, aches, pains, mental irritability and tiredness will turn on as your toxins are mobilized. To eliminate these unpleasant sensations, you need to be sure you have two, three, or more bowel movements a day.

      Drink a laxative herb tea each evening. You can find it in your local health food store. I recommend senna tea blend with senna being about half of it by weight. (Senna is an herb that promotes bowel movement.) The kind I've bought warn you not to drink more than two cups per day.

      Each morning on an empty stomach, add two teaspoons of non-iodized sea salt to a full quart of water. Do not use ordinary iodized salt as it will not work properly. Drink the entire quart of salt water first thing in the morning. "Chug" this — drink it as fast as possible. Within an hour several bowel movements will likely occur. (You'll need to be by a toilet for half an hour to an hour.) If you do not have several bowel movements, try a little more salt in the water the next day until it works.

      Drink the herb laxative tea at night to loosen and the salt water each morning to wash it out. If you can't drink the salt water in the morning, drink the herb laxative tea at night and in the morning.

      .

      Breaking Your Fast
      Breaking a long fast is very, very important. You should ease your way back to solid food after one or two additional days of juices, orange or grapefruit. If you are going back to raw fruits and vegetables, you may do so on the afternoon of the second day.

      If you have been a meat eater and/or milk products consumer, shift to cooked vegetable soup on the afternoon of the second day and a salad for dinner. Keep the lemonade drink as your breakfast drink after that. Of course, you would do better with the least amount of meat and no milk products as they are very productive of mucus and hinder digestion and absorption of nutrients.

      Detox Symptoms
      Detoxifying literally means removing poisons from your body. Once these poisons are gone, you will feel energetic, vital, happy and healthy. It is the poisons that make us feel tired, mentally confused, irritable, unhappy, depressed and ill. Consequently you should look forward to detoxification.

      Unfortunately, when the toxins are mobilized, they will bring about those unpleasant feelings and tempt you to quit the cleanse before you are through. So, you need to understand the symptoms of detoxification and ensure that you drink your laxative tea and salt water to stimulate elimination of those toxins.

      My experience with the cleanse and with various people doing it has taught me that whatever symptom I experienced one day, it would be gone the next morning with my bowel movements. It is nevertheless helpful to know when you are detoxifying because it helps you to get through that symptom to know it will be gone tomorrow.

      I have grouped the detox symptoms I and others have had into five groups:

      Cravings — I have only known one or two people to be hungry on this cleanse. Drinking more lemonade or water handles that. I have, however, observed that people on the cleanse crave what they are detoxifying. Proof that this is true is that the cravings usually go away the next morning with bowel movements. You can crave anything when detoxifying, but most likely you will experience cravings for the most toxic foods, such as pizza, hamburgers, barbeque ribs, etc.
      Tiredness — When your body fights toxins, whether from detoxifying or an infection, it diverts energy into healing and away from the energy you use to work and play. On my first 20 day cleanse, I was not tired except on the fifteenth day. The next morning, I experienced heat in my bowel movements, an indication that acidic toxins were being eliminated. I also lost all sense of tiredness.
      Irritability — This includes the desire to "just chew something solid."
      Physical aches, pains, nausea, vomiting, etc. — These are the most severe reactions and only occur where a person is severely toxic, only a small percentage of people experience these. Fortunately, these have gone away after only a day or two in every case I have heard about.
      Hot bowel movements — Your body wastes are acidic and when you eliminate the most toxic ones, they actually feel anywhere from warm to burning. This experience is very infrequent, but worth mentioning because hot bowel movements after a day of heavy detox symptoms will confirm that you just eliminated significant toxins.
      A Special Note on Headaches
      In talking to people doing the cleanse, I've learned that people with caffeine addiction (coffee, soft drinks, etc.) may experience headaches for the first 2 to 4 days.

      Final Note
      I hope you will have the same wonderful increase in mental clarity, health, energy and positive mental attitude that I and others have found.

  15. QUESTION:
    What should you eat when doing a whole body cleanse?
    I am planning on doing an enzymatic cleanse after Thanksgiving and was wondering what should my diet consist of?

    • ANSWER:
      I am on the Acai berry product right now and I have also done "the ultimate cleanse" as well ( at GNCfor .95). The one thing that people are not aware of is that when you do these, that healthy people only need to do one a year if that, and when you do them you need to drink extra water ( more than your daily amount) because it is pulling a lot of water out of your body and can dehydrate you which is very bad. You also need to be taking your vitamins and you may want to double them because the colon cleansers go through your liver and take out all of the vitamins and mineral that you need in your body because it doesn't know which ones you need. so double up at least on a multivitamin and take supplements of acidopholus( for your skin) and extra b's and c's along with a calcium-zinc-magnesium combination pill to help with bones and getting sick ( not that you will just as a precaution to keep from getting sick. Your face will probably break out because it is flushing out all of the toxins in your body. Along with the vitamins, you should stay away from fast food as much as possible and eat as much fresh fruits and veggies and lean meats as you can otherwise e you are defeating the purpose. hope this info helps you. from my personal experience it has helped me fell better and took about 6 lbs. off in a 2 week period. Good luck

    Can i stack a complete body cleanse with hydroxycut hardcore x?
    i wanna lose some weight before spring break. i workout regularly and run and play lots of basketball. i was advised to do a complete body cleanse and get on some hydroxycut im wondering if i should do the cleanse first or if i can do them at the same time?

    • ANSWER:
      Justin -
      Detoxing and cleansing have absolutely no medical benefit and are in fact harmful to the dietary tract and internal organs. There is no "build up" of bad plaque in a normal system. Our bodies "detox" 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help detox naturally by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda. Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body. Extreme detoxing diets or supplements actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      As for Hydroxycut it is nothing but a reformulated mix of herbs - at a premium price.
      One manufacturer had to pay back million for making unsubstantiated claims.
      The original formula was banned by the FDA.

      "On May 1, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning after some Hydroxycut products were linked to liver damage, rhabdomyolysis, and at least one death. The manufacturer then recalled the products. Shortly after the recall, Hydroxycut was "reformulated" with reportedly some different ingredients and placed back for sale."
      Good luck.

  20. QUESTION:
    What are the ingredients in Whole body cleanse products?
    What ingredients in products like this one cause the body to detoxify itself?

    • ANSWER:
      I am currently doing the cleanse right now and it is all natural. There are three parts to the cleanse. The first part is the Laxative formula which contains Magnesium Hydroxide, Slippery elm bark and marshmellow root. Those are the main ingredients in the laxative. It is not harsh at all. Then there is the Fiber Fusion which is made of fruit pectin and psyllium husk. It is easy on the stomach. The last part is the Super Milk Thistle which cleans the liver and has milk thistle, artichoke extract, licorice and dandelion which all work together to clean the liver. During the first part of the cleanse you take more of the fiber and laxative to clean the intestine and during the 2nd week it switches. Good luck if you decide to go it. I got mine on sale at the Vitamin Shoppe.

    • ANSWER:

    What drinks can I drink on a three day liquid diet?
    Can I only drink water or can I drink juice, too? I am going to go on a three day liquid-only diet because not only does it clean out impurities in your body, it cleanses your whole body system and is good for your health, plus, you lose weight.

    So what drinks can you drink on a three day liquid diet?
    I already avoid pop and fruit juice (unless it's 100%). Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      i'm doing that too!!!!! I am finishing up my first day of a three to five day juice fast, I had:
      A large glass of carrot juice in the morning
      8oz apple juice later in the morning
      small glass of carrot juice around 2
      a celery/spinach/parsley veggie drink from whole foods juice bar around 4
      and now a glass of kiwi juice

      and lots of water
      and some hot green tea
      but that's it
      you can drink as much juice as you want, vegetable is the best though, and will avoid giving you heartburn (although it doesn't taste as good as fruit juice, lol)
      good luck!!! I'm glad i got through the first day, i'm hoping i can make it through the next two. i'm exciting about dropping a few pounds and detoxing my body

  26. QUESTION:
    Could anyone tell me a daily routine for beauty on like the full body?
    My whole body is dry and my nails and toenails always look horrible. And my face looks horrible. Im pretty much disgusted with my body and need a makeover.
    What products work best and arent too expensive?
    I bite my nails so that's why they look horrible. I cant seem to get them to grow.

    • ANSWER:
      if your not satisfied, start in the shower. facial cleanser, facial scrub, body cleanser, body scrub, good shampoo and conditioner (AUSSIE cleanse and mend works WONDERS for me. helps greasy roots and dry ends) then apply good moisterizing body lotion in your favorite scent, all over with a hint of tanning stuff (or shimmer stuff) but not too much, it can look tacky. Bath And Body Works alll the way. uhmmm, get your nails done, but if you dont have the time or money, then buff them, clear coat them if you have trouble with colored polish, etcetera. if you have any sort of acne, use a scrub with 2% salycic acid. i doubt i spelled that right, but i hope it helps :) a clean slate is always best.

  27. QUESTION:
    how do you get rid of keratosis pilaris?
    i have eczema, and this keratosis pilaris came during my flareup and i have never ever had it and now my whole body is covered in these skin coloured bumps, is there a way to get rid of this?
    any cleansing baths? or scrubs or remedies? i really just want my skin to go back to normal!
    is it normal for keratosis pilaris to just come out of nowhere? is it curable? are there any prescriptions like betamethasone or any other steroids that can fix it?

    • ANSWER:
      Treatments, elixirs, etc. are just going to be a waste.

      The quickest and easy fix is a chemical exfoliant (for example a Glycol based one that you would use on your face) or even a physical exfoliant will clear it up in as little as three weeks. Enjoy your clear skin!

  28. QUESTION:
    How about that master body cleanse?
    Soooo, has anyone done the master body cleanse? If so, did it work well and did you lose weight from it?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sharea -
      The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. It took me some time to figure it out but you will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      You may lose a pound or two of body fat. So it does work. but it does not change your SIZE. Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism).
      Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxins.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well to fully detox.Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  29. QUESTION:
    how long does it take to get better from using herbs like chinese herbs?
    ive been taking them for 7 months for cleansing the whole body but mostly for depression...anyone know how long itll take to get better? doesnt 7 months seem like a long time?

    • ANSWER:
      What herbs/formula are you taking? What kind of herbal preparation?(decoction, tea, capsules...)
      Depression is extremely treatable and curable.
      You shpuld have seen results by now.

      Could you be doing anything to contradict your treatment?
      In Chinese medicine, the goal is to correct the imbalance causing the disorder. Say, for example you are taking a formula to calm an overactive liver(ex. high blood pressure) But are drinking regularly, you would not see good results because the alcohol is stimulating the liver to be very active.

      The same can happen with the wrong diet, or drugs.

      Also,make sure you have a good doctor, and condsinder a exclusive treatment plan just for depression.

    Of course I will be drinking a lot of water too.

    • ANSWER:
      The natural way as God intended mate .......... Let Food Be Thy Medicine Soccrates said.

      The more wholegrains and cereals like organic brown rice and fresh low sugar fruits like strawberries, pears and watermelon and fresh leafy and green vegies and crunchy vegies like carrotts and celery you eat the larger and easier your motions will be ........... drink more fresh filtered water too to ensure you are properly hydrated and to ease the elimination process...... cut out or right back on caffeine and sodas, pop and soft drinks too as they will dehydrate you terribly and wash out your water soluble B complex of vitamins which are so essential for healthy neural, immune and digestive functioning........ wholegrains and cereals and leafy and green vegies and lean organic meats are rich in the B complex of vitamins.

      chew each mouthfull at least 20 times ...... to aid in digestion too ....... don't combine proteins and carbs in one sitting ...... leave a 2 - 3 hour gap between each to ease the digestive process ....... eat fruit by itself ie ~ leave an hour after fruit before eating anything else.

      Pinpoint any food intolerances you may have such as lactose intolerance .......... lactose intolerance can cause bloating, gassiness, belching, constipation, acid reflux, achy bones, moodiness and irritability, brain frizzing ........ unaddressed food intolerances contribute enormously to bad digestion and compromise your whole system ...... eat more leafy and green vegies and low sugar fruits ......... green vegies lightly stemed or raw like broccolli, celery, buk choy, kale, chard are all rich in calcium and magnesium (green vegies for magnesium and calcium fruits for calcium) and perhaps ditch the milk and dairy for 5 days and see if that speeds the process for you.

      oh, eat more crunchy vegies too like raw celery, raw or lightly steamed broccolli, raw carrotts ....... they act like a broom and sweep the colon clean ...... green vegies are particularly good for helping with constipation ..... and eat the brown rice ....... one bowl full a day of brown rice, plenty of water and crunchy vegies will nail it for you mate.

      anything you can buy in a supplement, powder, tablet, pill ...... will never do the same job as actually paying attention to the way your body feels when you eat ....... and taking note of how the food you are eating makes you feel .......... if you get symptoms of headaches and migraines, irritability and moodiness, fatigue and exhaustion, nasty mood swings, achy bones, bloating and constipation after eating a particular food ........ eliminate it ........ strip your diet back to green vegie juice and organic brown rice or organic quinoa and slowly add in one food per day and note how your body reacts........ if it disagrees with you don't eat it.

      tedious and irritating to do sure but well worth the effort.

      ***EDIT***

      for those of us who have no perception of what is contained in tinned foods ........ two good examples would be processed sugar enmasse and MSG ....... both toxicsludge that will only ever serve to put extra strain on your liver and make your body and all your internal organs work just that much harder ....... to desperately try and eliminate them.

      peace baby

    Like body butter, etc.. What remedies should I take when taking bath like body moisturizer etc. And also other help... please.........

    • ANSWER:
      I just made a huge thing of tips for you. :D

      ~Always eat healthy,I am vegan I strive to eat as healthy as possible,I love to eat antioxidant-rich foods such as blackberries,blueberries,strawberries and lots and lots of dark leafy green veggies like kale,mustard greens,broccoli,brussel sprouts,snap-peas etc
      I also make sure to drink AT LEAST 8 glasses of water a day(I drink 12),a great way to do so is to start when you wake up,try drinking lemon water it give a great kick-start to your metabolism.

      ~As soon as I wake up I like to palates,I use this one when I am in a hurry:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15Uxbv4WOpo

      ~And I have a book that comes with a DVD called 15 Minute Total Body workout for Teens..or something like that(it's at my dads house right now,so I can't really find out what the name is)

      ~Some other ways to exercise is to ride your bike,jog,or walk your dog(if you don't have one ask your neighbours if you could walk theres).

      ~Skin care is very important to!,I recommend natural cleanser (Cetaphil, Purpose, Kiehls, and Desert Essence all are great),once a week give your self a nice steam facial which helps release toxins and opens pores,then use a mask I like Ecco Bella’s Dark Chocolate Face Mask or you can just use eggs (cheap and they work really really well!),also a nice gentle exfoliant such as Earth Science Gentle Apricot Scrub,or baking soda.For a moisterizer use jojoba oil for oily skin and I recommend a cream moisterizer for dry such as Desert Essence Daily Essential Facial Moisturizer.

      ~For a body moisterizer try Dessert Essence's Fragrance Free Organics Body Lotion and there Fragrance Free Organics Body Wash.

      ~Remember to relax take a break once in a while (including makeup!),give your self a spa day!,or take a nice walk.

      ~Try not to wear makeup to much I only wear makeup for special events,I like Urban Decay's vegan makeup.

      http://www.urbandecay.com/vegan.cfm

      ~For a natural spot treatment try tea tree oil or honey mixed with nutmeg.

      ~Try getting a sunscreen that's at-least SPF 15 and up!.

      http://www.ewg.org/whichsunscreensarebest/2009report

      ~And remember keep your chin up nothing is more beautiful then confidence!.

      ~Avoid consuming too much dairy, and if you absolutely must have it, try to have organic milk and cheese that haven't been pumped up with as many toxins. The hormones from a cow will be passed on to you when you drink its milk, and they can interfere with your own hormones

      ~Try to cut out on to many carbs,carbs turn into sugar resulting to acne.

      ~In short
      ~Drink water .
      ~Eat healthy.
      ~Use a natural cleanser(since you didn't say your skin type I'll just recamend one for oily and one for dry) such as Kiehl's Washable Cleansing Milk (dry) or Dessert Essence's
      Thoroughly Clean Face Wash (oily).
      ~Use a good mosterizer such as jojoba oil (oily) or Suki's pure facial moisture - nourishing (dry).
      ~ Use a good mask such as Ecco Bella’s Dark Chocolate Face Mask once a week (all skin types).

      its not going to kill you to go without moisturiser but you should use one to help control the amount of oil on your skin. also lots of facial washes can dry out the skin in other areas so they need to be rehydrated.

  35. QUESTION:
    Is Whole body cleanse a good product to use to help cleanse the body, lose some weight?
    I am in a bind, I need to lose weight in less than 2 months, I am in a wedding, and the dress is too small. What is the fastest way to lose the weight?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, you can cleanse your body with Senna tea. You can buy it almost anywhere. They sell some at walmart. It's called "super dieter's tea." But don't use it for more than ten days.

  36. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to do a whole body cleanse?
    I gained 35 pounds during my pregnancy. That was 6 months ago and I can't lose it. My weight keeps going up. I use my treadmill and do not eat junk. My doctor checked my thyroid and it was fine. I need to do something.

    • ANSWER:
      This is not medical advice, but I have a friend who went on a raw veggie diet (full meals, eat till full, just raw veggies) for a week, and that is supposed to cleanse your system. Then just eat right and exercise after that.

  37. QUESTION:
    Do whole body cleanses (colon cleanses) burn fat?
    I just recently bought a whole body cleanse from whole foods and I will be trying it out in a few weeks to clear my system. Will it burn fat in my stomach though? I am almost close to a flat stomach and I want to know if the cleanse might help. Please let me know if you have the answers.thankss <3

    (:

    • ANSWER:
      No. It causes total evacuation of the fecal matter from your bowels along with some water loss due to dehydration. As a one time thing to flatten your gut for a tight dress, ok maybe. But you won't lose any fat at all, and the results you do see will be reversed in 3 days, if not before.

  38. QUESTION:
    I am looking for a total body detox?
    I've never done this before and I feel like crap, I eat healthy, Love fruit n veggies. I eat whole grain I run every day and I just feel- nasty for some reason. I was thinking of a total body cleanse/detox, preferably all-natural and not just colon cleanse- I want whole body. Who has done this and has a favorite?

    • ANSWER:
      I am currently on a brand called Isagenix and it's working great for me so far. A few of the things kind of taste odd but you get used to it really fast. IMO best cleanse i have tried. It is a full months worth of cleanse/meals and worth every damn penny haha. It is super easy to follow and you arent completely restricted.

      Its 2 of the meal replacement shakes + 1 reasonable meal per day, along side 2 small pills and a glass of the detox powder.

      for 2 days during the month you do a fasting cleanse meaning you don't eat anything and you just have the drinks, but if you really want have some raw veggies or some fruit, but don't have too much otherwise it is pointless.

      Check it out: http://www.isagenix.com/us/en/home.dhtml?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

      Hope after your cleanse you feel good.
      Good luck!

  39. QUESTION:
    Where can I find a good body cleanse recipe?
    I would like to detoxify my body but i don't want to spend alot of money.

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone keeps talking about detoxifying the body but what does that actually mean. If you stop eating toxins will start to build up in your body. The right way of getting rid of these toxins is to eat whole grain, unprocessed, fresh foods. Eat organic fruits, meats and vegetables and you'll be a lot better off than doing a rediculous detoxifying diet.

  40. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know about whole body cleanses?
    I've recently gotten into the whole better health thingy becuz of my arthritis. I read about the cleanses and I guess I just need to really hear it from a real person if it works or not true.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a real person, at least last time I checked. I also work in an ER. The skinny about those body cleaners? They are fancy laxatives, pure and simple. Your body is designed to clean itself, if you eat properly- and you say you have started. The colon self cleanses and it doesn't really need help from you, aside from eating your veggies, fruits and whole grains- it is all set up to clean itself really well. There are no pockets of gunk in there hanging out, unless you have diverticulitis. Then a laxative would be the last thing you'd need. The body isn't designed to easily leach things out of you- that would be rather counterproductive from the body's point of view. Removing things like heavy metals and true toxins requires chelation therapy. That's some NASTY stuff. It's only given intravenously, in a hospital setting, by doctors who know exactly what they are doing. It's still dangerous, even then. Nothing you can eat, drink or swallow is capable of doing that. The only thing a colon cleanse does is upset your entire digestive system. Along with whatever you had to eat yesterday, it will remove most of the good gerbies you actually need for good digestion. It will still chemically irritate your entire colon as well. We see folks in the ER after doing some of those cleanse regimes, dehydrated and ill- because they have stripped out their innards a bit too well. Since you are eating better, trust your body. It was designed quite well to function without your help. Human bodies have worked thousands of years without needing to be cleaned from the inside, and will continue to work well without it. That includes yours. If you want to maintain good health, do it the time honored, proven way. Eat a well balanced diet, and exercise. Eat your fruits, veggies and whole grains in large amounts, go easy on the fat and salt. Put your money into good food, in as close to a natural state as you can, and cook it yourself. And pass on the cleansers. Except for a nice soap for the outside, which does benefit from being clean. Otherwise, save your money for something more pleasant.

  41. QUESTION:
    Do you REALLY need a Whole Body Cleanse?
    Doesn't your body cleanse itself of environmental toxins (pesticides, food additives, excess minerals and vitamins) itself? Is a store-bought cleanse---colon, kidney, liver, lungs, vascular, bowel, etc. cleanse----really necessary?
    Advocates of these type(s) of cleanses claim that excess toxins in the body cause weight gain, skin problems such as acne, depression, memory loss, and all sorts of other ailments.

    Can someone with knowledge and experience (only people with true insight please--no uninformed responders) please help me find an answer to this?

    • ANSWER:
      This is a very insightful question. You are correct in your assumption that the body cleans itself. But there are limitations as to how much the body can do. Each of us has a certain amount of heavy metals, and organic pesticide residues in our bones and soft tissues that will never go away no matter what. These can actually be measured by taking tissue samples and analyzing them in a lab. The true organs that work to remove metabolic wastes and drug metabolites are the liver first and the kidneys. The liver makes many substances water soluble for excretion in the urine. Other substances are removed in the feces. If you take these so called dedetoxifying products that contain herbs, then it is up to your liver and kidneys to remove the residues of these. So in essence you are actually toxifying not detoxifying your body. The only time that toxic substances can affect memory is during an acute poisoning event, like acute lead poisoning from sanding leaded paint, or something like that. All these colon cleansing products are based on one idea, soluble fiber. Taking fiber is a good idea for bowel health, Metamucil is fine and cheap. I could go on about this but my fingers are getting tired. Save your money, take soluble fiber from foods and Metamucil and stay away from leaded paints.

  42. QUESTION:
    have any of you been through a colon cleanse or whole-body cleanse and, if so, how did it help you?
    There is something called Gaia Cleanse (among others) and I am thinking of trying it (or one). However, I would like to know, from someone who has done a cleanse, does it really help eliminate a lot of waste and does it also help someone lose weight in any way? Is there a big difference in the way you feel afterwards and how long does it take for you to feel the effects?

    • ANSWER:
      there's a LOT of different cleanses. There's the very famous, celebrity favoured cleanse called the maple syrup cleanse where you combine maple syrup, water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and drink just that for a few days.

      I personally do a body cleanse using epsom salts. Let me tell you... You do not understand the meaning of truly disgusting until you swallow 5 tablespoons of epsom salts...
      It says no more than 3, so PLEASE don't take my advice to take 5!! I only do 5 because my body is resilient to 3. It'll basically make you go to the toilet until there's nothing left inside you to excrete. It completely cleanses your digestive system.

      It DOES help you loose weight, but it also ages you. Depending how much you take (the more you take, the faster the effect will be). It generally lasts for longer the less you have, so around 2 or 3 days because your body isn't pushed into doing anything, so it takes it's sweet old time. Whereas if you took 5 like i did, then it is kicked into overdrive and you basically poop everything out in one day.

      A good piece of advice is: make sure you do it over the weekend so that you can be near the toilet!!

      Also for the epsom salt taste, i like to press sugar onto my tongue and coat my tongue with sugar granules, then swallow the epsom salt dissolved in a LITTLE hot water! They say dissolve in half a glass of water, but that's just drinking a gross drink for a longer period of time! I just use a quarter cup of water, dissolve the salt, coat my tongue with sugar, and down it like a shot. Then i spasm for a while until the taste wears off. Then i run towards the toilet and live in there for the rest of the day :P

    I am on an all natural body cleanse/detox that are pills. Can I take a fat burner while doing it?
    Or will that defeat the purpose?

    The pills are great, I got them at whole foods and spent on them. They have all types of extracts and roots.

    • ANSWER:
      you could try taking a natural supplement with the detox pills. i recently was recommended acai berry pills taken with a natural body clense. acai is a berry that grows in the rainforrest and considered a super food. being natural they wont hinder your efforts with the pills your currently taking. cost approx a month. alternatively most fat metabolisers are safe to take with them but best to check with the shop attendants on the individual product.

  45. QUESTION:
    How fast does proactiv's deep cleansing body wash work?
    Does the proactiv deep cleansing body wash work? If so how long does it take for it to work? This is for moderate to mild body acne. Also, if used with the body pads and/or body lotion by proactiv will this make it work faster too?

    • ANSWER:
      I've been in that situation and there is really nothing you can do about it. There are things you can do to try to reduce the blemishes and get rid of acne temporarily but you will always be finding yourself cleaning your face or your body depending on where it's at.

      I mean of course your acne should go away eventually but for some this is the case their whole life.

      I'm 29 years old and have been suffering from these little pests since I was a teenager. I tried all sorts of face washes from the local grocery store and what not, but nothing seemed to work. If anything it would just make my skin dry and itchy.

      Literally the best acne face wash I've ever used has been this stuff called clearpores. It has got rid of the acne to quickest and has been a success ever since I got it. It's unique cause of it's herbal supplement you take a long with it that helps your skin from the inside out. I saved money on it at skincleansingsystem.com at the time which was helpful.

      You should really look into this stuff and if you can to assure the best results, get the 3 month supply because if it doesn't work it will still save you butt on the return policy.

      Well good luck and best wishes.

    iv been taking whole body cleanse for 3 days and have not had a bm yet. is that normal?
    i started taking it sun pm and it is now weds. been drinking water. is this concerning. will the bottome eventually fall out?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not sure about the "whole body cleanse" (is that the name brand?), but I've recently bought and used Bowtrol, and it's amazing. It's expensive, but it's worth the money. If you haven't yet, you do need to fit in some fruits and veggies in your diet, don't eat too much cheese (it's hard to digest), drink plenty of water (eight servings of 8 ounces a day!), and make sure to fit in some whole grain breads, oatmeal, or whole grain snack bars. There's so many good things out there anymore. I would try the high fiber diet (adults are supposed to have 25-30 grams of fiber a day), and try Bowtrol along with it, or research others first before buying. Some don't work at all, and some don't work as well. I bought an over-the-counter one at a well known department store, and it didn't do a thing for me. I got on the internet, checked out some sites, and came across some reviews on BLohan.com. That's where I heard HIGH recommendations for Bowtrol. There's another one on there as well that's supposed to be really good too. I just can't remember what it's called. Anyway, good luck! Hope I was able to help!

  49. QUESTION:
    What happened to the person who sliced the body open to prepare it for mummification?
    I heard that they were often killed for corrupting the human body. What exactly happened to the people in this profession and why do you think they decided to commit themselves to such a crime in ancient history?

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t think they were killed. The work they did was for ensuring that the body remained in a state suitable for carrying on in the afterlife. Certain procedures had to be observed. The site below is interesting on mummification. There were also priests involved for the ceremonies such as the Opening of the Mouth.

      I did read, though, that the lowest orders, the cutters, may have first had sex with a pretty female body as they couldn’t find anyone else because of their profession, and one theory is that this was the beginning of sexual disease. (I lent that book out some time ago so can’t quote it.)

      “In the mature practice of mummification, there were three distinct groups of practitioners. They included the cutter who made the incision in the flank of the mummy, the scribe who supervised this work and the embalmer himself, who belonged to a special guild or organization and was responsible for leading the mummification ceremonies and for wrapping the mummy in bandages. The latter actually supervised all of the stages of the mummification process and wore a jackal-headed mask to impersonate Anubis, the god of embalming, as he performed the rituals.

      The embalmers were actually a special class of priest and were considered to be highly skilled professionals, probably with close ties with the medical doctors. Their office was hereditary. Under their charge might be others, including those who made coffins and wooden funerary figures, as well as other items for the tomb.

      On the other hand, the cutters had one of the lowest statuses in society, because of the ritual "impurity" associated with the incision in the corpse and the removing of the viscera. They also obviously faced certain health risks. This class of individual in the mummification process may have even included criminals.

      Others included in the mummification procedure and the funeral included priests of Osiris, who performed the rituals, lector priests, who recited the chants and the ritual instructions and the men who washed and cleansed the mummy and the viscera, prepared the natron and resin, and actually wrapped the body with layers of linen bandages. The whole process associated with death became a major industry that employed many workers including mourners and even dancers.”

    I am looking for a colon cleanse product/drink that is okay for diabetics to use?
    I am diabetic and I want to do a cleanse before I start changing my diet for weight loss. But a lot of them require you to fast and I can't b/c I am diabetic. Do you know of any cleansing drinks or teas that are okay for diabetics?

    • ANSWER:
      Patrice-
      Colon cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the dietary tract. There is no "build up" of bad plaque in a normal system. We "cleanse" 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, no soda. Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body. Colon cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.
      Good luck.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does facial fat also dissolve during detox body wraps?
    Hello,

    Im planning on getting a detox body wrap soon. At the moment I forgot to ask this question but does the face also lose fat during a detox wrap? According to the receptionist, the wrap will be from my neck down but what will happen to my face?
    Thanks, I though detox meant melting the toxins out of your body and releasing them through your pores. But the toxins are just water weight? I guess toxins and fat are two different things?

    • ANSWER:
      Yup you are going to lose water weight. That's why most of them label as inches loss, not weight loss. You will wrap yourself in that thing and sweat. You will sweat a lot and pee a lot. It is like a last minute resort if you need to fit in a dress in some special occasion.

      Since water go around your body, you face will loss slimmer if the water store inside your body is gone

    How to detox body before starting a diet?
    Ive decided on saturday i am going to detox my body before starting loosing weight. I want to do this so my body can be fresh and get rid of all the bad stuff i have been eating recently. Obviously you need to drink alot of water but what else helps you to cleanse yourself from the inside? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I, for one, believe wholeheartedly in detox. But, only in the proper way otherwise it may make matters worse. Many folks assume that the body is quite capable of ridding itself of the plethora of "junk" it comes in contact with and come out smelling like roses - that's just plain ludicrous. Yes, the Supreme Being did create a wondrous marvel, our body, as we are designed with organs and systems (colon, liver, kidneys, bladder, lymph and skin) that work around the clock to rid the body of "toxins" (cellular waste, digestive waste, foreign proteins, heavy metals, etc.) that occur due to what we eat, drink, breathe, put on our skin and even from the stresses of our daily lives. Problems will and do arise when our organs/systems are overloaded with work, impeding proper function and elimination. Essentially, If our bodies could handle all of this, there would be no sickness and disease, point blank!

      When we feel below par or have symptoms of dis-ease, we are experiencing the effects of the build-up of toxins. This is another name for "acidosis" of the body. And, this is what needs to be addressed and reversed through a proper detox. Most people get it wrong when they think to "purge" the body of toxins with the many detox diets, programs or pills out in the marketplace that may do more harm than good. What needs to be done and is the real meaning of detox - Alkalize! This is the golden key that opens the door to health and vitality.

      Here's what happens: Acidosis causes obstructions in either one or more of the 3 energy flows of the body - blood, nerve and lymph. Looking at the lymphatic system (which is the main system that is stressed), lymph fluid should be free flowing towards the kidneys that should filter out the acids. With the accumulation of too many acids (acidosis), the lymph fluid becomes cationic - an environment where things start to get sticky and coagulate, allowing very little to be eliminated. Any good detox regimen should aid in removing the obstructions by changing the body fluids to alkaline. This is a major start down the road to repair and rebuilding of the body.

      Most detox diets/programs can be unhealthy and don't work only because they are not alkalizing. In many cases, they are designed to purge the body of so-called toxins. When purging is involved, what is happening is your body is being forced to function the way it should be functioning on its own. So, the solution to this inability to rid of something foreign in the body (obstructions) is to strengthen the cells so that they may perform this task of elimination optimally. Now, there are instances that a very "constipated" organ/system needs a little nudge and this nudge should be gotten through a natural means and for a short length of time, such as with the use of herbs - an alkalizing means…. not with chemicals that are acid-forming, making matters worse.

      Drinking tons of water to "flush" is not an advisable approach to detox. This is because, if you're acidic, your body will retain water as it tries to "put out the fire" of acidosis and bloating is experienced in most cases (and especially since most of the water people drink is acidic!) This approach holds no water (pun intended) since when you release your bladder, it is usually clear after drinking lots of water. The fact is, if your kidneys are filtering the lymph optimally, you would have cloudy and flakey pee.

      In essence, your diet should be your detox! A detox diet should include 80% (total calories) raw fruits or freshly-made fruit juices, 10 - 15% greens and 5 - 10% essential fatty acids. Meat, dairy products and even grain products hinder the natural detoxifying processes and should be totally avoided. They are acid-forming or congesting in the body. If your body is very acidic (sick and diseased) adding tissue-specific herbs or herbal formulas are a great plus. Even animals in the wild know which herbs to consume when they feel below par! By following this way of healthy eating, your body's elimination systems will be able to function optimally! Detoxing any other way sets you up for failure since it's most likely not an alkalizing protocol.

  4. QUESTION:
    How to detox body before going on diet?
    I've been on diet for 3 weeks now, but so far I've not lost any inches, maybe I should detox my body first? How to do it?

    • ANSWER:
      No need for a detox, the body will detox itself. The best way to monitor diets is by using BMI readings rather than weight. You can reduce fat in your body but stay the same weight!! eg if you exercise lots you will build muscles, muscles are heavier than fat, so you become leaner but lose little weight if any. it is possible for women to drop 2 dress sizes but stay the same weight

    How to detox body after weeks of oily food?
    I don't usually eat that much oily food or foods that are cooked in butter but for the two weeks I stayed at a friends I had lots of fried stuff like steak and sausages that where cooked in butter (also in a frying pan so all the fat/oil from the meat stayed in). Now if I have anything that is slightly oily I feel bloated for hours, is there any way to detox my body??

    • ANSWER:
      Don't sweat, so you ate some real food. No worries, return to your diet and routine and you will be fine. We all been there, your body will recoup just fine without some extreme crazy method of purging or detoxing. Life is too short and precious to be concerned about something so trivial. Don't spend another minute thinking about what you ingested. Take care.

    How can I detox my body after recently quitting smoking?
    I just quit smoking a couple of days ago and want to detox my body to feel better. Any suggestion?

    • ANSWER:
      Wow....wtg! I know how hard that is as I did the same thing over 5 years ago but hey...this is about you! Stay with it and remember, you don't have to stop.....just stop starting!

      You body is going to go through some serious detoxing all on it's own so don't rush it but things you can do on your own are:

      -drink lots of lemon water
      -take vitamin C
      -start a good multivitamin (not that drug store crap)
      -exercise
      -sweat....be it a hot tub, sauna, anything that makes you sweat

      Those things alone are a great start. From there as you progress you can add many other great natural products that will help you to detox but be very careful not to rush it as you can actually create a detox crisis.....meaning, your body is trying to get rid of toxins faster than it's capable of and it can cause incredible stress on your liver, kidneys and lymphatic system so easy does it!

    what are some good healthy ways to detox your body?
    I am on a mission to lose weight and I want to detox my body of all the unhealthy stufff that I have been eating over the past year. I have started out only drinking water. I just need some good advice and please I will not consider diet pills. thanks! What kinds of foods, drinks, anything else would be helpful as well!

    • ANSWER:
      First, if you really believe that unhealthy food you ate a year ago is still in your body in ANY form except fat cells, you're mistaken. The body doesn't "Hold onto" bad food and it certainly doesn't get clogged up.

      If you really want to detox your body, continue with what naturally happens: Drink water and add fiber to your diet. Water flushes the body anyway, it's God's detox. Fiber helps clean the colon and the intestines and the stomach. Our bodies were made to handle those two ingredients in the cleansing process. You don't need a special program and you don't need to starve yourself or fast to be healthy. You need to keep eating and drink more water.

      Good luck!

    What is a comfertable way to detox my body?
    I want to empty my bowels, and detox my body just because I will feel better and my body will digest food better. Let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      You can try supplements. Just be careful about which ones you choose and i would ask a doctor before buying. I used Nature Cleanse which worked well for me but may work different for other people. If you do decide to try one, try to stick with one thats well known and has good reviews. I hear a lot about Purity 12 also. It has some good ratings. If you want to read up some more on them you can go here. http://www.puritycleanse.com

  12. QUESTION:
    Is there a homemade way to detox your body overnight or in a short amount of time?
    I was wondering if there is a way to detox your body overnight that you could make with household items

    • ANSWER:
      There is a method of detoxing the colon that has worked for centuries and was used extensively by many ancient healers. To detox the body, you need to be more specific about what organs, etc. Detoxing is a very good way of relieving the toxic build up that happens in our modern society. The method is called the SALT FLUSH. I have personally experienced this and it is quite effective. I recommend this to people getting a liver/gallbladder flush to free the colon of toxins prior to the dumping of gallbladder stones from the gallbladder and intrahepatic gallstones from the liver. This takes typically 1 to 2 hours. Make a solution of 2 teaspoons of AIR DRIED SEA SALT, not typical table salt in 1 quart of distilled water. Drink it down first thing in the morning. Then lie on your RIGHT side in bed for about 1/2 hour. You will hear some gurgling sounds, but not to worry, it's just working its magic. Then get up and go about your business, but stay close to a toilet.

      Sorry "GARY" but no one is selling any products here except some very inexpensive salt they will buy at the health food store. Additionally, GARY, you really should investigate the John's Hopkins Research group that discusses intrahepatic gallstones of the liver and how to detox those. I have several patients that have had incredible success in getting those stones and gallbladder stones out of their bodies with olive oil and grapefruit juice along with herbs to prepare the body for the detox of these stones. And yes, the gallbladder and liver functions improved greatly to solve some of their health problems. You do need to free yourself from the lies you believe.

      EDIT: "GARY" Boy are you wrong this time and only showing either your impossible agenda or complete ignorance. So, John Hopkin's Researchers are wrong now? The jars of stones that measure up to 1" or more that come out of patients doing the flush is wrong and not there? I'd like to have these people do what they do with their doctors that agree with you and show you the stones and then listen to the amazement of doctors that see these things. Hundreds of stones that come out of gallbladders and livers are more than proof. To see the radiance of patient's skin and to see them not have ANY MORE GALLBLADDER ATTACKS after a series of these flushes is more than proof you are wrong!

      The salt flush causes high blood pressure? Show me ONE study that says salt causes high blood pressure. Then show me ANY study that says a salt flush causes high sodium content in a body. You can't. You really need to get a life and stop making stupid statements and making this feeble attempt to validate your beliefs as if they are science backed. The quack watch is more of a quack group of pseudo scientists making feeble attempts to look credible. I believe the sad thing about all this is you will be doomed to live out your existence as a statistic in your own ignorance and belief's. You do need to free yourself from the lies you believe.

      good luck to you

  15. QUESTION:
    any ways to detox your body without pills or drinks?
    I have been reading all the ways to detox your body on the internet thru pills and drinks. I was wondering if there were ways out there to do it naturally without taking anything. I would do something like the acai berry products but they all require a credit card to get them even if you just pay shipping and handling, I dont have a credit card so that way is out. Any suggestions other than ask a friend to use their credit card.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Lisa, I have tried a couple of ways in the past. You can do steamed vegies and boiled brown rice for 5 days only. Drinking water as well of course. And that is it for 5 days, no longer apparently it can be bad for you if you extend the time. 5 days for any detox is the max. Another suggestion is to cut out all processed foods, starches like potatoes, all bread, no spices or salt and pepper and you can do this gradually as well, for example, the first week or every couple of days you can cut out a section of food. For example cheeses and dairy, then the next week can be starches... this is guaranteed to wipe off the kilos. Just remember to drink lots of water. A few guys a know have done a detox from blessedherbs.com and they have raved about it. You do need a credit card for that one though.
      Good luck with it all, and whenever you feel thats it's getting hard, just think, it only 5 days out of your whole life!
      Enjoy your day

  17. QUESTION:
    How can i cleanse and detox my body naturally?
    In the summer my parents buy hot dogs! All the time, mostly because they are easy to cook, and no one wants to slave over a hot stove in the summer heat. Anyway because of that i eat maybe three or more everyday!!!! And yesterday i just found out they were PROCESSED! Is there any way i can detox my body naturally?
    I heard that fasting for two days is one way but but idk

    P.S. I will NEVER eat hotdogs again!

    • ANSWER:
      You don't have to go & buy a colon cleanse/detox system - your body will get rid of excess waste all by itself. But you can help it along by eating lots of fiber-rich foods like whole-wheat carbohydrates and Fiber One Cereal (not too much, because that can cause constipation) and drinking lots of water! This will clean you out naturally and help you feel more refreshed :)

    Can anyone tell me the BEST, natural way to detox the body?
    I want to detox my body of certain chemicals and would like to know the best, fastest and natural way to do so. Im not looking to buy a magic bottle cause they dont work anyway. If you can help suggest a real good way to naturally detox the body that would be great. Ive read so far that "The Master Cleanse Diet" is good, havent tried it yet though. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jen

      You are right in saying "magic bottle cures" don't work, they don't. You need to set aside a period of about 10 days and eat organic fruit and vegetables in their raw state, no animal products, no alcohol and no drugs. Drink plenty of water and do some reasonably light exercise. The main problem is sticking to it cause it's tough. I found that I needed a plan or program which would discipline me into doing the right thing day by day. There are some pretty good detox programs online and some poor ones so choosing the right one isn't easy. If you got to a website which compares detox programs you can find what you need.

      Good luck

    I want to lose weight and start eating healthier, but before i do that i want to detox my body from all the fat and just everything, what should i eat and for how long can I do it? Like detox it from EVERYTHING!

    • ANSWER:
      "Detoxing" is a complete fallacy, there IS no such thing, your body can "clean itself" if you are healthy, and if you are not you need medicine or surgery, not a "special diet"....the whole 'detox' thing was invented to separate gullible consumers from their money...

      Want proof?

      Go to a "health food" store and find a product that claims to "detox your body", then look on the packaging for details on the specific toxins it is supposed to remove...when you cannot find any, ask the store owner which toxins it is effective at removing....and unless they are too stupid to know better, (in which case you can sue them for fraud and false advertising) they will not be able to tell you.

      It's a scam...

  24. QUESTION:
    is there a way to detox your body without pills and supplements?
    I've been looking into body detox plan, all I've found is a bunch of 0 pill bottles and chemical plans that claim to be the best. It's confusing and really expensive, all for something that may not even do what it says. So that said, what is the best way to detox your body *without* online pill programs?

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't make sense to add chemicals (in pills) to your body to detox. Depending exactly what you're trying to detox for depends on how to detox, but in most cases
      Water, fiber, or prune juice. Water should help you detox anything. It doesn't happen with one bottle, it will take quite a bit. Do not over do the fiber or prune juice or you will be in the bathroom and in pain!
      Good luck

  25. QUESTION:
    Are there any good fast ways I can detox my body of Depo-Provera?
    I have had only one shot of Depo and I am not going back for my 2nd shot. I hate the side affects and the whole shot together. I have been looking up ways to detox my body of the hormones but I have yet to find what I am looking for. I'm not looking to get pregnant I just really want to get these hormones out of my system so I can return to the pill. Can anybody help?

    • ANSWER:
      The idea of detox doesn't actually work--be it in the realm of dieting or trying to rid something out of your body.

      Depo has to leave your body on its own. Depo is hormones. You can't flush hormones out of your body.

  27. QUESTION:
    What is a safe way to detox the body?
    So I would like to take 3-5 days to detox my body for health reasons. I've read many different methods to go about it. Some people say that fasting for a day is a healthy way for your body to work on the toxins that alcohol and processed food cause. Others say that is not healthy. Mainly I've heard just stick to fruits and veggies. Any suggestions? Has anyone done this before? I was told you should detox once a year.

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxing is good but not for too long. The best thing for detox is fruit and veg and you should also try brown rice.

      When you eat brown rice (plain and no garnishes), it literally acts like a sponge in your stomach and sucks up toxins and then you pass them out when you go to the toilet so it is an excellent way of not starving yourself on a detox. remember to drink plenty of water and hot water with a slice of lemon is excellent to start each day with too.

      Hope these tips help.

  28. QUESTION:
    Can doing a detox interfere with birth control pills ?
    I am currently on birth control pills, yaz. I am also starting a 7 day detox body and colon cleansing system with the pills. Will this affect the effectiveness of my birth control pills ? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      They shouldn't but you aren't going to be interested in much sexual activity anyway.
      The best way to cleanse and detox is to get hold of a liver. Oh, you have one? Great.
      Now just stand there and let it detoxify your body. Partner it with some kidneys and you've got the most efficient body cleanse and detox system known to man.
      And you don't even have to wait for it to come in the mail, or give a credit card number!
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients. The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, kidneys, urine, and feces.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal processed and refined foods. THey are loaded with additives, concentrates, and preservatives mostly in added sugars and salts.
      Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, lean meat cuts, fresh fish, beans, peas, brown rice, raw nuts, and barley keep a system as healthy and as clean as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet of whole fresh foods works every time. Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both normal internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      Spend your money in the produce department to speed your detox.
      Good luck and good health.

  30. QUESTION:
    What happens when you detox your body?
    I was talking to someone recently and they mentioned something about detoxing.

    Why do you detox your body? What is the best way to do it? Will it harm your body?

    • ANSWER:
      A natural body cleanse detox is not something only "unhealthy" people should do. Even with a healthy lifestyle, you should detox your body occasionally because of the daily exposure to a multitude of harmful chemicals and toxins.

      Various herbs can assist in a total body cleanse. Dandelion and Fennel aid in a natural body cleanse by detoxifying the system, rejuvenating liver functioning and kick-starting the body back to life.

      Tips When Detoxing Your Body:

      * First do no harm! A number of body cleanse detox products are ineffective and dangerous.
      * Drink plenty of water to help detox your body.
      * Eliminate foods containing toxins and increase your intake of foods containing vitamins and nutrients. Also increase fiber intake.
      * A natural body cleanse detox starts in the mind. The more mentally prepared you are for your total body cleanse, the greater your chance of success.

      You can detox your body with excercise or by eating veggies or fruits by 60% of toxins of your body, what about those which are non soluble and do not get out with sweat (excercise & purified water), urine or stool (fruits & veggies)?

      you need something which detects toxins, pull them out from blood, cells, organs and remove them completely out from body, then regenerate body organs and improves your immune system to fight back harmfull diseases.

      i would suggest you to study about "Ganoderma Lucidium", its a mushroom which has minimum 200 medicinal values and works what i have told above, it comes in powder/tabs forms and can be taken with or without medical prescription and / or with any kind of regular medicine (if u r taking), its 100% natural way to detoxify your body with better health and immune system.

  38. QUESTION:
    How can I detox my body from weed?
    I need to detox my body for a drug test for probation. I smoked in total about a eight of weed in 3 whole days, but I had stopped smoking for a whole year. If you have any legit answers and will help me fast.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Let's see, you were on probation, knew you were subject to drug testing and still smoked. Not the smartest idea I've ever heard. Well, There is absolutely nothing that will get the thc out of your system except time and here is why.

      Marijuana has a half-life in your system. How long it takes to leave your system depends on how much you smoke. But the time maxes out at around 45 days. One smoking session for someone with a clean system takes about 3-4 days to be clean. Smoke 2 days later and then have to wait about a week, and so on. The time it will take roughly doubles every time you smoke until it maxes at about 45 days to be clean. So if you are maxed out and you wait about 2 weeks and then smoke again, you're basically back to 45 days.
      Marijuana can be detected in urine for nearly a week after smoking. Blood tests can be more accurate, and it might take a month to be totally clear. Hair tests show every drug ever taken when that hair was growing - this is why you see so many drug addicts with shaved heads or buzz cuts, by the way. Also by the way: taking laxatives and drinking wacky chemicals won't "cheat" a drug test. It will just make you go to the bathroom! These drug tests are designed by experts who anticipate what the drug user might do.

      Be very careful of "remedies" for getting around drug tests. They flat out do not work and could do damage to your body.

  39. QUESTION:
    What's a great way to detox your body?
    I am headed to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve this year and I'd like to detox my body and shed a couple of pounds before I go. Does anyone have any tips on great detox and weight-loss programs for a short period of time? Not looking to spend a great deal of money either. Mainly, just want to "feel" better if you know what I mean. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      There is are "detox" blends of tea available from various brands, such as Yogi Tea and Celestial Seasonings. These are usually available in the organic foods section of many grocery stores, if not just in the tea aisle. They have a taste which is rather difficult to acquire... But, if you can make yourself drink a whole cup about an hour before lunch, and an hour before dinner, it helps a lot.

      If you can't get used to the dandelion-root & chamomile flavour of the detox teas, any other kind of tea will serve a similar purpose, just not quite so completely.

      Also, don't eat your biggest meal of the day at the end of it - have a big breakfast or lunch, but take it easy for dinner. Eat your last large meal at least four hours before you become totally sedentary for the evening (either sleeping or watching T.V.), and drink lots and lots and lots of water. Yes, it will make you pee, but remind yourself that's a Good Thing.

      One solid month of discipline will make your New Year resolution a breeze to keep!

  43. QUESTION:
    Is it safe to detox your body?
    I'm a college student that is trying to get in better shape...I read in Fitness magazine that before you start dieting that you should detox your body. I want to really start dieting after Christmas. Is detoxing safe? Also, what are some ways that I can safely detox my body? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can't detox your body. You need to find better resources for information.

      "Detox" is short for detoxification and detoxification is a natural process involving your liver and kidneys and there is nothing you can do to effect it. It is impossible to detoxify a human once the toxin is in the blood with the possible exception of kidney dialysis, kelation therapy, and other expensive medical modalities. Currently "detox" is a faddist word, relatively meaningless, and is used to express that which the users cannot otherwise express because of ignorance of because the expression would be patently false.

      Detox diets, cleanses, and supplements don't work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don't work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

      Check out these reliable references. Listen to experts, not a random bunch of strangers of unknown credibility in this and other forums. Here's what the experts have to say about cleanses.

      Ref: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_114876.html

      Article excerpt: "Although the reports show little evidence of any benefit, many studies reported side effects. These include cramping, bloating, nausea, vomiting, electrolyte imbalance, and kidney failure."

      Ref: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/colon-cleansing/AN00065

      Article excerpt: "The human body can defend itself very
      well against most environmental insults and the effects of occasional indulgence.

      Article excerpt: "Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists"
      Ref: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article784402.ece

      Your body cleanses itself naturally. And cleanses, purges, emetics, enemas, alternative and homeopathic colon cleanses etc. cannot remove fat from your body or make your body lose fat and/or toxins. If fat is your problem, you're eventually going to realize that nothing works except a proper diet for life or surgery. The best diet for all normal adults hasn't changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods.

      Detoxification is a fad and a fantasy only. If you have reason to believe you're toxic, consult with your doctor. Don't waste your time paying attention to advertising hype, naturopathic gurus, homeopathic charlatans, etc. The road to good health is paved with science. If you or someone you love gets deathly ill, you will take them to a place where medical science is practiced. So, where is the sense in abandoning medical science in favor of baseless and unscientific methods of quacks and charlatans.

      Good luck and good health!!

  45. QUESTION:
    Can Internal Flush dietary supplement clean out THC from body? If so, how long does it take to get all out?
    I have a drug test coming up and i have these dietary supplements capsules called Internal Flush and it says they detox body so does that mean it also cleans out THC? If it does how long does it usually take. It says to take 3 to 6 capsules before bed time.

    • ANSWER:
      This product is intended to cleanse the gastrointestinal tract.

      THC is stored in fat cells, not in the gastrointestinal tract.

      I have been watching students be drug-tested for many years. There is no single method that is guaranteed to help someone pass a urine-drug-screen if the person has been smoking marijuana. I have seen students drink cranberry juice, lemon juice, vinegar, and huge amounts of water and still fail. I have seen students do nothing and pass (when they shouldn't have). There are simply too many factors involved for one method to work for everyone.

      I realize this isn't the Answer you wanted, but it's an honest one, and it's one based on 20+ years of observation.

  46. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest way to detox your body
    is there a quick and easy way for me to detox my body.

    • ANSWER:
      First, lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, minimize use of chemical-based household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants and toothpastes), and substitute natural alternatives.

      Another deterrent to good health is stress, which triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system. While these hormones can provide the "adrenaline rush" to win a race or meet a deadline, in large amounts they create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver. So it's a good idea to detox stressful life situations along with detoxifying your body. Yoga and meditation are simple and effective ways to relieve stress by resetting your physical and mental reactions to the inevitable stress life will bring.

      Also
      1. Eat plenty of fiber, including brown rice and organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.

      2. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea.

      3. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.

      4. Drink at least 2 quarts of water daily.

      5. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.

      6. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

      7. Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes.

      8. Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.

      9. Dry-brush your skin or try detoxifying patches or detox foot spas / foot baths to remove toxins through your pores. Special brushes are available at natural products stores.

      10. What is the most important way to detoxify? "Exercise," says Bennett. "Yoga or jump-roping are good. One hour every day." Also try qigong, a martial-arts based exercise system that includes exercises specifically for detoxifying or cleansing, as well as many other exercises with specific health benefits.

  47. QUESTION:
    How to detox your body naturally?
    Is there a way to detox your body at home naturally?
    Without using harsh commercial prescriptions........Many thanks,araucano.

    • ANSWER:
      Dr Roger Clements, a chemist at the USC school of pharmacy, said tests have proved that no extra toxins were expelled from the body on detox diets and that suggesting the digestive system needs a break is ludicrous.

      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.

  48. QUESTION:
    Any great ways to detox the body?
    I'm looking to detox my body from the impacted meats and air born microbes that I'm sure are jammed in there. I'm looking for a natural detox to do at home (forget the water and Juice fasting techniques). Herbal drugs are are okay, but I'm not going to spend on some chalky detoxing crap that pot smokers use to pass urine tests.

    Now I eat pretty healthy, drink around 60oz of water a day and exercise about 4 times a week. But I know I have impacted stuff in there, and looking to break it up, and I've been getting sick more often lately, so just looking for a "body restart"

    Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      1. Detox Diets:
      Diet is an important part of detox. Vegetarian diets are the best naturally for detoxifying the body. Due to the fact that meat takes a lot of energy and enzymes to digest it. Also vegetables and fruit which vegetarians eat a lot of contain high amounts of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes which help the body cleanse itself.

      Chorophyl which is what gives plants their green colour is very detoxifying. Eating vegetables that are very green like spinach will help you get the chlorophyl you need.
      Adding spirulina to your diet will also greatly enhance your bodies ability to detox and heal. Spirulina will help speed the metabolism, and is very easy to digest due to it's very basic spiral cell structure. Spirulina is a type of blue/green algae that is full of amino acids (protein), minerals, anti-oxidants, and enzymes.

      2. Detox Baths:
      Salt Baths are an excellent way to detoxify the body. The salt will help clear toxins and lactic acid through the skin. Lactic acid causes aches in the muscles. It is good to take a detoxification bath once a week while on a cleanse or detox program. Otherwise once a month is good for maintenance.
      Use 1/2 cup of baking soda, or 1/2 cup of epsom salt, or 1/2 cup of sea salt.
      Adding a smoky quartz crystal to the bath water with help detoxification.
      Soak for 15-20 minutes.
      Scrub skin gently with a natural fiber scrubber (Loofa sponges work great).
      The water will turn murky due to toxins such as heavy metals coming out of the skin.

      3. Saunas, Steam Rooms, & Sweat Lodges:
      These are also excellent ways to remove toxins from the body through sweating them out. The high temperatures in saunas, steam rooms, and sweat lodges cause your muscles to relax which will allow those cells to release any toxins they were holding when they were tense. When your body is heated up to high temperatures you will sweat, and sweat is a natural way that your body rids itself of built up toxins. The sweat will safely remove these toxins from your body.
      Taking cayenne, ginger, lemon, and/or lemongrass will also help the body expell toxins through sweating. Taking any of these in tea form before or during your sweat lodge, steam room, or sauna sessions will greatly facilitate the cleansing process. Also showering after a sweat is important to make sure you've rinsed away any toxins that were eliminated.

      4. Tongue Cleansing:
      Whenever you go to sleep at night, your body will go into a deep state of healing and will work to remove toxins out of your body through your tongue. When you wake up with bad breath, that is a sign that you have released many toxins through your tongue. This can be seen as varying colours typically white, yellow, or brownish on your tongue. Ayurvedic and Chinese doctors sometimes diagnose people according to the colour of toxins eliminated through the tongue.
      It is important to clean your tongue in the morning before eating breakfast to avoid re-ingesting those toxins. To do this you can simply use a toothbrush to brush your tongue clean of the toxins released. Even better is to use an ayurvedic tongue cleaner. This is a device usually made of metal that is shaped with a loop that rakes over your tongue pulling off all the toxins.

      5. Juice Fasting:
      Juice fasting is an incredible way to detox and heal the body quickly. 30% of our bodies energy is devoted to digesting our food. When we fast we give our consistently hard working digestive system a break and free up that extra 30% of energy which gets re-directed to detoxifying and healing the body.
      Drinking vegetable and fruit juices are very cleansing and healthy. They are full of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes all of which are very important for helping the body to detoxify and cleanse. You are also able to drink much more juice than you would be able to eat from fresh fruits and vegetables. For example, you can juice and drink the nutrients from 3 large carrots and a couple of heads of lettuce easily, whereas it would be harder to sit down and eat them all fresh without getting full.
      It is good general body upkeep to fast on a regular basis such as once a week 1-day fasts, or doing longer fasts/cleanses (3-12days) around the Spring or Fall Equinoxes.If you are planning a 3-day or more juice fast, I recommend consulting a health professional first to see if it is right for you and your body type and to make sure you will be getting the right nutrients. I also recommend adding Gelatinized Maca powder, Ayurvedic Herb: Shilajit, or spirulina to your juices or smoothies to increase your mineral, and vitamin intake.

      6. Herbal Teas:
      Herbal teas are also an important part of a juice fast. By taking herbal teas that help cleanse and detox the body, you will greatly facilitate the healing process. Recommended herbal teas for juice fasting are: dandelion, fennel, licorice, ginger, cayenne, peppermint, goldenseal, juniper berry, chamomile, red clover.

      7. Detox Herbs
      There are a variety of herbal supplements one can take to help detox the body. I'll just list some of the main ones here: dandelion, goldenseal, milk thistle, neem, anantmul, tulsi, and manjistha. DETOX is a general organ cleanser and tonic, specifically including kidneys, liver, pancreas and gall bladder. Cleanses heavy metals and other poisons, such as mercury, lead, alcohol and a deficiency of the vitamin B complex, especially thiamin, from the blood, nerves and cells. A thiamin deficiency results in the impairment of nerve tissue so that it cannot utilize carbohydrates for energy. Also, DETOX is very good for providing a complete cleansing of the small intestine. Excellent for taking, following any intense experience of stress.

      8. Detox Foot Pouches:
      A wonderful and very easy way to detoxify while you sleep is by using a detox foot pouch. This is a wonderful method used by the Chinese and other Asian doctors. It is quite simply a small pouch filled with mandarin wood vinegar, tourmaline, and germanium. This pouch when placed on the foot creates a chemical reaction that causes the pouch to emit far infrared energy that stimulates the body's meridians and circulation of blood and lymph. This greatly helps the system detoxify and the pouch will then absorb toxins released by the body. These pouches are specifically placed on the foot's reflexology points to target specific areas of the body for stimulation and detoxification. They can also be placed on other acu-points on the body with similar results.

      good luck

Detox For Acne

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what is the fastest way to get rid of acne ?
    Im a freshman and i have had acne since 6th grade, and i cant figure out how to get rid of it. i have tried proactive and different types of facial product's but none of them worked ! i wash my face everyday and my face just gets worse and worse . what are some home remedies that might help ? thanks !

    • ANSWER:
      The secret is to detox your body. ACNE is a symptom of a rubbish diet that does not provide the immune system with the proper nutrition to repair itself. In the end it is this malnutrition that will kill you. So don't take your Acne for granted. Its a warning sign.

      Our ancestors past down knowledge that seems to be ignored by our medical industry (it's a big industry that we do not need). I discovered African healing clay a few years back. I had been suffering with ACNE for more than 20 years all the medication I received over the years did only one thing. It made some doctor and pharmaceutical company richer. At best the results were fleeting and I experienced side effects some of which could have killed me (I turned out to be violently allergic to minomycin, I ended up in hospital for a week and decided to live with the acne or find another way.

      I then stumbled upon a site from South Africa. The product they sell totally sorted my skin out. I now use the product as does my entire family. We no longer go to doctor because our immune systems are doing what it's designed to do. We don't even get the common cold. And we even treat cuts etc..

      I have recommended the product (Smectite Clay) to everyone I know. If you want to be healthy and this includes every aspect of your well being I strongly suggest you pay their site a visit.

      The other thing is STOP using refined sugar, flour. As a young person if you start looking after yourself now you will live longer without aging to badly.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the fastest way to get rid of acne and how long does it take?
    I don't usually get alot of acne. I just want to know the fastest ways to get rid of them just in case I do get one soon. Can you please list several possible ways and the amount of time it usually takes? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I think the fastest natural way is through an apple detox which takes about 3 days and a lot of people see a huge difference in their skin after that time. There are some good programmes which have people's acne dramatically improved in just a week. Acne Erasing Secrets is one I've noticed that has a lot of good reviews:

  3. QUESTION:
    What is a truly effective treatment for adult acne?
    I have had acne since my late teenage years, I am now 27. Very tired of looking at it. I've tried proactiv, and all sorts of over the counter treatments, and I hate taking oral medications for fear of side effects. Is there a non-invasive approach to dealing with acne? Is an antibiotic treatment regimen really helpful or will it just be a waste of my time and only make me more bacteria-resistant?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry to hear that you have such serious problems with acne.

      It's not fun. I've been there.

      First of all you need to forget medicines and antibiotics. They only offer a temporary relief and often cause more harm than good. The same goes with most of the OTC treatments.

      The good news is that acne is relatively simple to fix - once you know what causes it and how to deal with it.

      First you need to understand what causes acne. If you said bacteria and sebum you are 90% wrong. Yes, they are part of the equation, but only a small part. Focusing on them will not get you clear - as I'm sure you know.

      Acne is a complicated condition and it doesn't have a single cause. To explain it in detail would take too much space here. So I'll just give you a heavily summarized version.

      Your body is in a state of imbalance. These imbalances mess up with your hormone levels and trigger the skin to produce too much sebum. They also weaken the immune system and p.acnes bacteria gets out of control. They interfere with food digestion and abortion. So you don't get the beneficial nutrients from the food you eat.

      For more detailed explanation I suggest that you take a look at this page: http://www.natural-acne-solution.com/what-causes-adult-acne.html

      To cure acne the only thing you have to do is to bring your body back into balance.

      You need to tackle it on many fronts:

      - diet
      - exercise
      - maintain positive mental attitude
      - detox and give your body some time to repair the damage

      At first blush that may sound like a lot, but it's much easier that you may think now. And once you get to it you'll notice that your acne disappears on its own. No pills or creams required.

  4. QUESTION:
    What are some good home remedies for acne scars?
    I'm 16, have combination skin and have acne scars. They're not like the ones you see on Lawrance Fishbourne that make your skin look like oatmeal, but they're red and dark. I'm half Hispanic, but my skin is pretty light. So, my acne scars arr dark. I don't want to have to go and see a dermatologist and let them make me take a bunch of harsh chemicals - I want something more natural.

    What are some good home remedies that actually work?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of natural treatments you can use to fade these scars, I know I used to have a lot of them and I combined these methods and they faded A LOT in about a week :
      1. Lemon Juice- use a cotton swab and rub a little bit of lemon juice on your acne scars. Lemon juice has a lightening property (ex.: using it to lighten hair), so it will help your scars fade. Also try to drink alot of water with lemon to detox your body.
      2. Apple Cider Vinegar- mix 3 tablespoons of water (4 if you have sensitive skin) with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Dip a cotton swab in the mixture and put it on your scars to help them fade.
      3. Eggs- try using eggs for microdermabrasion. You can read more about this online, its difficult to explain haha
      4. Honey- slather some honey on your face, and mix it with nutmeg and cinammon for exfoliating and acne preventing purposes. Leave it on your face for about 15 minutes and wash it off. It should soften your face, reduce redness, and fade scars.
      5. Tomato- has alot of vitamin A that helps new healthy, clear skin grow in faster
      Good Luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best home remedy to cure acne in 5 days?
    I need to get rid of the acne on my face before prom on Saturday, please help me! What works the best and what have you tried??
    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Cameron thanks for your question. I can help you out with that.

      5 days to cure acne is unrealistic but to treat the existing acne is definitely possible. I'll offer you two solutions, one quick fix and one long term that you should start applying immediately so you can cure your acne for good.

      Quick Fix:
      Go to your dermatologist or doctor and ask for a prescription for ZIANA (clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%) Gel. This is basically an antibiotic and treats pimples virtually overnight. Very effective. Go asap! With 5 days you should be able to treat all your existing acne!

      P.S. don't use acne face washes with benzoyl peroxide and salicyclic acid. They are the worst aggravators and have countless side effects like increased redness etc. Instead use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil.

      Long Term:
      Start strengthening, detoxing, and cleansing your internal system. This is where acne stems from; how severe your acne is simply reflects how unhealthy your internal system is.

      Start taking pro-biotics daily, drinking plenty of detox tea, and lemon water.

      So yea, I hope this answered your question fully but if there's anything else you need to know please feel free to drop me a line, I'd be glad to help. Good luck and have a great time at prom!

  7. QUESTION:
    Is it safe for a 13 year old to apple detox to get rid of acne?
    Is it safe for a 13 year old to apple detox to get rid of acne? If you don't know what apple detoxing is, it basically mean you only eat and drink and apples and water for 3 whole days, nothing else, and only 3 days. Apparently it helps get rid of acne for several weeks.

    • ANSWER:
      I think that a fruit and juice detox is a great idea! HOWEVER, there is a correct way to do such things.

      Acne and most other skin conditions are the result of acidosis of the body. I don't care how much you wash your face, even with the most expensive products, this will not cure your acne. Acne, psoriasis, eczema, etc. is the skin reacting to the acids coming out of the body. Your skin is like your third kidney and whenever your kidneys are overwhelmed with filtering the lymph (where acids build up), your skin takes over some of the work. When you think of it, it's good that the acids are coming out and not festering inside the body. BUT, what we want to do here is alkalize the body (reversing acidosis so that skin conditions won't happen - the kidneys can do their job efficiently without the help of the skin).

      So, how does one go about alkalizing the body? The best course of action is a diet change: Eating and juicing fruits are key! Do you have a juicer? If not, you can find them everywhere, even used ones, if money is an issue. When you juice fruits as opposed to eating them, you are getting ample enough of your daily caloric requirements - juices are more concentrated nutrition also. Fruit is the best energizers, alkalizers and have the best astringent properties! In fact, fruit is the perfect food for humans! However, store-bought bottled juices are not an ideal option for this kind of alkalizing cleanse - heat required to process the fruit for bottling has depleted vital nutrients especially enzymes, for one thing. If you are going to drink juices, make fresh ones for optimal results.

      Now, you heard or read somewhere to eat/drink apples only. You might want to consider adding grapes and lemons to that detox. All 3 are great detoxifiers and you will be getting a much greater variety of nutrients. Mix and match them to your taste.

  8. QUESTION:
    Is it normal to feel thirstier than usual during a detox diet?
    I'm on day three of a detox diet. I'm not doing one of those fad "master cleanse" or juice diets. I've simply cut out processed foods, meat, etc. I'm also drinking a caffeine free tea that is used for detox. I mostly feel okay, but I've been a lot thirstier than normal. Is this a normal reaction to detoxing? My diet is already pretty raw except I usually am a chocoholic, so that's the main thing that's being cut out.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Tina,
      The Side effects of using detox diet include excessive diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and electrolyte loss. Constipation may occur if people consume excess fiber without also increasing their fluid intake. Other side effects can include tiredness, irritability, acne, weight loss, and hunger. Any worsening of symptoms or new symptoms that occur during a detox diet should prompt a visit to a qualified health professional.

  9. QUESTION:
    Does Great Plains Bentonite detox get affected, and or become less potent by a temperature change?
    I am using Bentonite clay as a detox, and I initially had it stored in the fridge, but eventually took it out and it is now in one of my kitchen cabinets.
    I only want to know if that temperature change can affect the bentonite in a negative way? Thanks in advance. 10 points to the best answer.
    I failed to mention that I am using the Bentonite you drink for internal cleansing.

    • ANSWER:
      its ok..clay will not get affected by temp changes...check storage details on the bottle

      1. Use liquid bentonite, a colloidal-gel. I mix my powdered calcium bentonite in filtered water to form a gel-like constituency and keep it in a glass jar with a plastic cover. Do not use metal containers or metal spoons with clay.

      Calcium bentonite also called calcium montmorillonite is used for detox purposes whereas sodium bentonite is used for industrial purposes.

      2. Take one tablespoon of liquid bentonite in a glass of water first thing in the morning or at least an hour before food

      It has no taste. But, if you do not like the tasteless taste, take it with apple juice to make it more palatable.

      3. Drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day to help bowel movements.

      4. As a result of its highly absorbent nature, it must be taken at least two hours before taking any medicine. It probably will absorb and eliminate the drug as well.

      5. After a week, if you are comfortable taking bentonite clay as a cleansing agent, increase the dosage to twice a day. First thing in the morning and before you go to bed. You can easily take bentonite clay for a few months, say six months.

      6. After two or three weeks you will find a lot of improvement in your bowel movements and your energy level.

      7. You can also make a paste of the bentonite and apply on your skin to eliminate acne and any form of skin rash.

      8. You can take bentonite clay with psyllium husk, probiotics and even liquid chlorophyll. The homemade colon cleanse in how to cleanse your colon will show you how.

  10. QUESTION:
    I have lot of pimple and acne after 3 months changing to vegetarian food?
    It is still lasting until now that is 4 months already. During this time, I still take vgetarian food (not meat). In the past, I sometimes had acnes but never pimple on forehead, chest, back. Now, not only acne but also pimple on those places. Someone said that my toxins are going out. But, I am worried how long this thing will be last. Do we have any treatment for it? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Not to be gross but how is your digestive tract? If you aren't getting rid of all your waste... it can cause acne- especially around your chine and upper lip. Make sure to get enough fiber and be drinking lots of water.

      If that isn't the problem then I would agree with the user who said your body is in detox and it will normal out somewhat after your body gets used to the healthier you :)

  11. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detox your body?
    I'm vegan, but I want to detox my entire body. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      CAN BE DONE IN THE USA TOO

      Hydrocolon Therapy - large intestine irrigation - detoxication, and purification of organism.

      The large intestine plays an important role in the human´s digestive tract. That is the reason why we offer you the possibility to purify this part of your organism by Hydrocolon therapy. This method was introduced in ancient times, and its modern form was developed in the US. Owing to this method we can help you to overcome consequences of unsuitable lifestyle, improper regime, and often impacts from taking modern medicaments, especially antibiotics on intestinal microflora.

      Why go through hydrocolon Therapy?
      In curves of large intestines are persistently cumulating food remainders that form culture medium for putrid, and fermentative processes. Yeasts, moulds, and bacteria multiply on these remainders, and disturb natural balance. They also produce increased amounts of toxins (poison) which pass through mucosas, simultaneously are absorbed into blood, and lymphatic systems. In a fundamental manner then weight down the organism, and immune system, and become the reason for an array of medical problems, and illnesses. They as well disturb abilities of intestinal mucosa to absorb significant vitamins, and nutrients. Among frequent complaints that are bound to this process belong for example:

      Acne, skin diseases, psoriasis, various mould ailments, allergies
      Overweight, enlarged abdomen, constipation, articulary problems, rheumatism, high blood pressure, pain in the small of the back
      Headaches, chronic weariness, weakened defensiveness, proneness to illnesses, anemia, bodily odour, bad breath
      Therapy progress
      The procedure is carried out in a lying position on the back by professional personnel - skilled nurses, and lasts approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
      To the client’s intestine is alternately pumped warm and cold water by a tube inserted into the rectum. Uneven temperatures stimulate peristalsis and clean the intestine. Hydrotherapy gently dissolves, and cleanses intestinal contents including toxic wastes, sediment mass, pathogenic micro-organisms, and parasites. Simultaneously activates immune system. Water with dregs is conducted away from the body without you smelling any stench, since the whole system is closed. Clients can observe the irrigated content in a transparent pipe during the procedure.
      Hydrocolon therapy is perceived pleasant, and creating content feeling. The therapy does not cause any pain or spasms. In certain phases of the procedure appears a feeling of full intestine.

      Preparation before the therapy
      One day before the irrigation is appropriate to consume only easily digestible food, for example: yogurt, kefir, puree, fish, pasta, vegetable soup, tea, juice. Inappropriate is flatulent food for example: legume, fresh bakery products, cabbage, kale, raw vegetables, and fruit, meat, milk.

      Recommended number of procedures
      Under the terms of this purgative method are completed 3 to 5 applications out of which are 1 to 3 completed in the first week. After the irrigation is recommended to take a preparation with microbial flora – lactoflora by Pharma Nord company. Subsequently is appropriate to go for a sustentative purification once a year.

      Make an appointment, if you want.

  12. QUESTION:
    What is a good drugstore foundation for acne prone skin?
    I have mild acne and oily skin. I will be going to a wedding this summer and need a good foundation. I would also prefer to use a foundation that is good for taking pictures. I also want something that doesnt look to cakey ! thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm oily, sensitive, acne prone. The only drugstore and budget foundations online to work for me are:

      Physicians Formula talc free mineral wear liquid
      Revlon Mineral Mousse
      Bourjois Matte Minerals Mousse
      Bourjois Bio Detox
      Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Gentle Finish Powder foundation
      Marcelle Oil Free Matte Finish
      Vasanti Liquid Coverup oil free Foundation/Concealer
      Vasanti Face Base Oil Free Mineral Powder Foundation
      Yaby Liquid, Cream and Powder foundations
      Everyday Minerals Matte and Semi Base
      Lumiere Cosmetics Veena Velvet and Cashmere
      Ella Rose Day Time Magic For oily Skin
      BFTE
      Adorned With Grace
      Lucy Minerals Oil Control Foundation

      No foundation however will stay fresh in place all day. it takes a routine. This works for me:

      1) Pure aloe vera gel after cleansing and toning. It is cheap, natural, soothing, rebalances oily skin, hydrates while leaving a healthy matte finish which is ideal underneath makeup.

      2) Makeup spray after aloe dries/absorbs. This is what keeps makeup in place all day and to a degree controls oil. The best on budget for oily skin are Etude House Dr Oil Mist ,Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Sealer, Kryolan Fixier.

      3) If you need a primer, avoid oil in it and heavy silicone as that is bad for oily skin. Fyrinnae velvet silica gel is the best to fill in lines/pores for oily skin.

      4) Apply one of the above mentioned foundations.

      5) Anything you apply on your face whether it be foundation, concealer, primer, spray, blush, bronzer, luminizer etc make sure it s oil free! Always read ingredients even if they claim to be matte because they could still contain oil.

      6) Set with a good finishing powder. The best at controlling oil/sweat without caking or appearing ashy/ghastly and without breaking you out are: physicians formula talc free mineral wear matte veil, mattify! cosmetics ultra, lucy minerals oil control, lumiere cosmetics veena veil.

      7) After doing eye makeup, filling in brows if you do, reapply one of the sprays I mentioned and allow to dry. You'll get a healthy satiny glow and your makeup will remain fresh in place all day. No getting oily, oxidizing, having makeup rub off or fade. No blotting, retouching, reapplying.

      I go from morning to night like this without problem even during the summer and I'm extremely oily originally. good luck.

  13. QUESTION:
    Are detox products virtually aimed at achieving the same benefits that fasting tries to have?
    I have read up on how to prevent acne the real way, however some methods require a fast of a few days. This is not feasible in my situation being at college and having much to do. I see as I have written in the question above, that the main key is detoxing the body, watching the foods you eat, and treating existing acne safely. What do you guys think?

    • ANSWER:
      yes:
      Fasting is primarily the act of willingly abstaining from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. Concerning that from which one fasts, and the period of fasting, a fast may be total or partial. Fasting practices may preclude sexual activity as well as food, in addition to refraining from eating certain types or groups of foods; for example, one might refrain from eating meat. Medical fasting can be a way to promote detoxification.

  14. QUESTION:
    Thought acne was suppose to go away completely after teen years?
    So I have heard, that when you get into your twenties, your acne is suppose to just go away. Mine hasn't and I have been using all sorts of acne medications and nothing seems to make it go away completely. I haven't tried proactiv because I don't have the money right now. But I thought once you were out of your teens, with all the crazy hormones and everything, that it was suppose to go away completely? My chin is the only place I get pimples and it's really annoying. I don't touch my face or anything to get it all oily and I don't wear any make-up (besides eye make-up). Does anyone know anything that gets rid of your acne?

    • ANSWER:
      The real reason for acne is that your skin is throwing out all the toxins that you took in with your food. The only real solution is to stop taking in bad food and help your body redirect the rest of the junk and throw it out through your digestive tract instead. In other words, you need detox and a gluten-free, dairy-free vegetarian diet. You need lots of green vegetables, sprouts in every salad, probiotics and herbal teas that clean the junk out of your blood, your liver and kidneys. Do this for at least a month and you'll get rid of the problem for good. I can recommend one really good pro in this field, look up the website of Kimberly Snyder. She gives free advice on healthy recipes and how to clean your body from the inside out.

  15. QUESTION:
    Is it bad to go on detox if you are under 18?
    I want to go on the lemon detox, but my friend said it's dangerous if you aren't an adult yet. I just wanted to know if this was true or not, and if it is, why?

    • ANSWER:
      Lemon detox is a fad but it's healthy for adults IF it's done for 5 days!!! If you are under 18, it is not recommended. You are not an adult and your body is not yet fully developed inside.

      You will become constipated if you don't drink tons of water because the detox works by emptying your colon and large intestines.

      Beyonce did it for 21 days because she had to for her movie role and she said it was very hard and she was tired all the time and dizzy. She also lost all her body fat and all her muscle and had to have a long rest afterwards.

      Squeeze half a lemon or one whole lemon in a glass of water every morning and evening to clean out your system. And drink lots of water to flush your system. That will help clear up buttons and acne and stuff. Nothing else is necessary.

  16. QUESTION:
    How long can I fast (detox) without the risk of starvation mode?
    Hi,

    Going to go on a juice detox (Jason Vale). I don't plan on completing the 7 days as I don't want to risk putting my body into starvation mode and gaining even more weight in the long run.

    To be fair, the juice diet is very healthy, but I simply want a detox. Some weight loss would be nice but happy to do that over a longer period.

    Do you think 3 days is enough to get the benefits but not the risk?

    • ANSWER:
      Starvation mode as we know it is a myth.

      When we think of starvation mode, we think that when we skip a meal or do a fast, our bodies go into "starvation mode" and start storing everything we do eat as fat because it thinks it is starving, thus causing weight gain rather than weight loss. People in our society also have a very strange idea of what starving is. To them, starving can be as little as skipping a meal or even a snack. Actual starvation means cutting the total caloric intake to less than 50% of what the body requires per day for an extended period of time (meaning weeks and/or months). So skipping a meal or snack or even doing an extended fast in the short term is nowhere near starvation.

      Also, starvation mode doesn't cause weight gain, not even close. Research shows that at no point does the body stop burning body fat during fasting or even during extreme starvation until the research subject hits a rate of approximately 5% body fat. So, if we have body fat to burn, our bodies will not gain weight, but continue to burn body fat for fuel.

      What does happen in starvation mode is your metabolic rate drops (after several weeks or months of less than 50% of your recommended daily caloric intake). Which could explain why there may be a misunderstanding that the body would gain weight because we are told that a slow metabolism means weight gain. However, the slow metabolic rate associated with starvation mode is also misunderstood as outlined in the below quote from this article:

      "Lyle McDonald explains it this way:

      In general, it's true that metabolic rate tends to drop more with more excessive caloric deficits… But here's the thing: in no study I've ever seen has the drop in metabolic rate been sufficient to completely offset the caloric deficit. That is to say that cutting your calories to less than 50% of what the body needs per day leads to a reduction in the metabolic rate of 10%. Starvation mode you say. Well, yes. But you still have a 40% daily deficit."

      This means that you are still so far under the amount of calories that you should be eating that you will certainly continue to lose weight and not gain it as we would be led to believe.

      I would say to try the fast for three days, see how you feel and decide then if you would like to complete the 7 days. It might also be a good thing to work up to. Start with a couple of days, then take a week break, and bump it up to 4 and so on until you reach the 7 days. You will still get great detoxifying results with even a 24 hour fast. Three days should see great benefits.

      I began intermittent fasting over a year and a half ago. I fast every day for 19 hours and then eat within a 5 hour window of time every day. I noticed wonderful detoxifying benefits. My chronic acne prone skin cleared up and I haven't had a break out in over a year and a half which is a miracle for me. I attribute that to fasting everyday.

    How do you keep your skin acne free?
    I just ran out of my acne stuff, and I don't feel like getting more of it because it really doesn't work. What are some natural ways, (other than products) to get acne-free skin? Like, what vitamins, foods, etc are good for your skin?

    • ANSWER:
      eating right is a good start OhhMyy., But you need to go a bit further. a skin detox would help get rid of the impurities lodged deep within your skin to ensure it looks healthier and of course get rid of/ prevent acne. you might also want to consider waxing to give it that youthful glow too.

    How are Laura Mercier products for acne-prone skin?
    I have oily, acne-prone skin. I have been looking for some different makeup to try. I would also really like to use a primer but am afraid of it causing acne. I've heard that the oil-free primer from Laura Mercier is good for acne-prone skin. I've also heard tha the Laura Mercier foundation is good for acne-prone skin.
    Any thoughts?
    Mike - thanks for the input. I have already been to the dermatologist and have acne meds but was asking about cosmetics. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I would recommend that you try a oil and silica free primer. There are a couple that I love!!

      Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer
      Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer
      both work nice and do not leave a residue on your face.

      Some great foundations that work well is

      Smashbox Halo foundation
      Smashbox Hi Def Foundation
      Bare Minerals
      Urban Decay Mineral

      I think they work great and cover well.
      One thing that you may find from some products like the Bare Minerals is the formula is so pure, when you use it your skin will go through a "Detox" phase where you skin will tend to purge excess oil and whatnot so don't get discouraged.

There are very little side effects from using Tea Tree Oil.

      The watery gel from Aloe Vera plant is also a highly effective natural cure against Acne. The enzyme-rich gel has very soothing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It can also be taken internally and helps clean up and detox the digestive tract. This in turn can help clear up the skin.

      Some Natural Homemade Cures to counter Acne
      The most important thing to do if you suffer from Acne is to drink at least four pints of water every day. Drinking a lot of water is very beneficial to your skin. Including fresh fruit and leafy green vegetables in your daily diet will also bring about a marked improvement in the quality of your complexion.

      Before bathing, apply a mixture of tomato pulp – real tomota pulp, not packaged one – honey and rose-water to your face and keep for twenty minutes before washing off.

  20. QUESTION:
    What are really good 3 step acne regimes?
    It's ruining my life :( I have mild-moderate acne mostly in the t-zone and sometimes on the cheeks. My skin is sensitive and I think it's also dehydrated. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, beauty is skin deep...

      1. Detox (toxins in your body does affect your skin)
      2. Drink lots of water (helps in hydrating your skin and also flushing out the toxins)
      3. Use Cetaphil (non-comedogenic) to wash your face coz it's gentle on your sensitive skin. However, do not wash your face more than twice a day as it will dehydrate your skin.

      Well, you have only asked for three, so the rest of the info is a bonus:
      4. Use a toner after washing
      5. Moisturise your skin (for hydrating your skin - but do not use cream based moisturiser as it will be too rich for your skin - will clog pores and cause more acne.)
      6. Do not touch your face with your hands/fingers. Bacteria on your hands will infect your skin.

      Hope this helps!

  23. QUESTION:
    what are some topical medicines that work well for acne that arent expensive?
    I have really sensitive skin, like if I wash my face more that once a day, I wil get even more acne and a really red face.. Idk what to do.. I dont think the clindamycin gel is working.. and I have no health insurance so retin A is too expensive.. and I cant take any oral meds because Im on too much other medication.. any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Jen thanks for your question. I can help you out with that. If you have really sensitive skin you definitely want to avoid benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid acne face washes. These two ingredients are the active ingredients in almost every major three step acne treatment system or face wash like say Pro-Activ, Clean and Clear, etc. They are the WORST aggravators of sensitive skin.

      You want to use a very gentle face wash like those made by Cetaphil. Cetaphil products are inexpensive and you can find them at most Walgreens, CVS and the likes.

      You want to wash your face with the Cetaphil or whatever gentle cleanser you're using only at night. In the morning you want to just wash your face with warm water and remember to lotion! Lotions with aloe vera in it should reduce redness and cool your skin.

      Finally as for you acne, I'll offer you two solutions, one quick fix and one long term.

      Quick Fix:
      Go to your dermatologist or doctor and ask for a prescription for ZIANA (clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%) Gel. This is basically an antibiotic and treats pimples virtually overnight. Very effective.

      Long Term:
      Start strengthening, detoxing, and cleansing your internal system. This is where acne stems from; how severe your acne is simply reflects how unhealthy your internal system is.

      Start taking pro-biotics daily, drinking plenty of detox tea, and lemon water.

      So yea, I hope this answered your question fully but if there's anything else you need to know please feel free to drop me a line, I'd be glad to help.

  24. QUESTION:
    What is the best overnight non-prescription acne medication?
    I used to use retinae which worked pretty well, but now my prescription is over.

What is the best working acne medication cream that you put on for OVERNIGHT before you go to bed, and let it do it's magic while you are asleep?

  27. QUESTION:
    Whats the difference between Acne cleansers?
    What's the difference between Benzoyl Peroxide facial cleanser, and Salicylic Acid cleansers?
    I used to use 2% Benzoyl Peroxide cleanser.. But it stopped working, so I switched to 10% and it seemed to make my acne worse... So, I switched to salicylic acid cleansers, and, now my face is dry, and the acne is cured.. only a little.
    Whats the difference?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Dinosaur,

      Benzoyl peroxide is used to treat mild to moderate acne. It is a harmful chemical solution with numerous side effects.

      Topical salicylic acid is used to help clear and prevent pimples and skin blemishes in people who have acne. It's another toxic chemical that causes more harm than good, but is less toxic than Benzoyl. This explains why your acne improved once you switched to Salicylic acid.

      The problem with these chemicals is they treat the symptoms, not the underlying issue. Acne is the body's way of signaling a problem with the acid buildup in the body. Your body tries to detox itself by releasing toxins through the skin pores, thus giving you acne.

      The best way to clear your acne is to use a free natural remedy followed by a solid clear skin program to maintain your results.

      This will give you:

      - beautiful clear skin
      - a glowing appearance
      - a more youthful, energetic smile

      It worked for me and I hope it works for you. Hope this help.

  29. QUESTION:
    How should I approach my acne problem?
    I have had acne since I was about 15. I am now 20 and thought it would be gone by now...

    I use some proactive products, St. Ives facial scrub, and a foam face scrubber.

    I exercise daily and eat fairly healthy, and drink lots of water.

    I wash my face in the morning and follow it with the Proactive toner and lotion, doing the same at night.

    I wear light MAC studio fix NC 15 makeup during the day, but not too much.

    Any tips on how to alter my approach to controlling my acne issue?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Acne is caused by a combination of factors including dead skin, the use of oily skin products, dirty skin and hormonal imbalances.

      The best way for you to protect yourself against acne is to follow these simple guidelines.

      1. Wash your face at least twice a day with mild soap or a mild acne cleanser. Also wash around your neck if possible.

      2. Always keep your skin clean. You can do that by bathing twice a day and staying away from dirt and dusty environments.

      3. Very Important!!. Avoid oil based skin lotions and other oil based skin products. Always use water based skin products. Ask the shop assistant when purchasing such products for information.

      4. Detoxify your body every once in a while. You can do that by using colon cleansers or other detox products. This helps with blood circulation and helps in clearing clogged spots.

      Follow those steps and you will prevent your acne from spreading further.

      For your scars, use Vitamin E oil to rub on them. They should disappear after a few weeks. You can just by vitamin E supplement and use the oil for that. I know I said you should use oil based skin products but this is different.

  32. QUESTION:
    does anyone know if burts bees is good about clearing up acne?
    I've struggled with acne since i started puberty. nothing works. not proactive, or acne free, or clearasil, or anything. not even doctor prescribed medications and creams. I've heard a lot of people rant and rave about burts bees so i was wondering if anyone with mild to bad acne has ever used it and seen results. people typicaly with oily/dry combo skin. thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, considering that burt's bees uses benzoyl peroxide, just like most commercial topical face washes, I don't think the results will be any different. I have used their face wash before, I used it for several months and saw no difference with my acne whatsoever. None of the commercial stuff has ever worked for me either. You're not alone, because those face washes don't target the real cause of acne.

      Know this: acne is caused by toxicity and a hormone imbalance, which are both INTERNAL issues. No matter what you wash your face with, it will not change anything if there is something internal going on. All washing your face with those topical face washes does is just temporarily kill the bacteria that feeds on the toxins your skin secretes, but since those toxins will keep being secreted until you deal with the real problem, the bacteria will continue to feast on it...and the vicious cycle continues.

      Just recently in the past few months, I've completely cut dairy and red meat from my diet and I have noticed less frequent breakouts. I read many places that milk can trigger bad acne because of all the antibiotics and hormones that are in it. And most meats also have hormones and stuff because of what they feed the animals. I'm now only eating organic eggs and wild caught fish. I also have quit drinking soda, eating greasy, salty and sugary foods, and I avoid sugar in general. Removing those foods from your diet will help your body detox from all the junk that is in them. I would suggest trying this for at least 6 months to see how your skin reacts. I can guarantee you will see some positive changes, because I have and it's just been 2 months since I started this diet.

      Make sure to wash your face when you get and before you go to bed. And use only a soap which contains no SLS (sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate) as these are highly dangerous chemicals which will dry your skin out terribly. I personally use Dr. Bronner's pure castille soup. You can find it at Ingles or at a health food store. The lavender one is my favorite, it's very gentle on your skin, but it cleans really well and smells great.

      I hope all this gives you some hope of a clearer future. :)
      I'm refusing to give up on clearing my acne, because I know that it is not an impossible task.

  33. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of acne scars?
    I have quite bad acne scars how can i get rid of them without it costing too much?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of natural treatments you can use to fade your scars:
      1. Lemon Juice- use a cotton swab and rub a little bit of lemon juice on your acne scars. Lemon juice has a lightening property (ex.: using it to lighten hair), so it will help your scars fade. Also try to drink alot of water with lemon to detox your body.
      2. Apple Cider Vinegar- mix 3 tablespoons of water (4 if you have sensitive skin) with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Dip a cotton swab in the mixture and put it on your scars to help them fade.
      3. Eggs- try using eggs for microdermabrasion. You can read more about this online, its difficult to explain haha
      4. Honey- slather some honey on your face, and mix it with nutmeg and cinammon for exfoliating and acne preventing purposes. Leave it on your face for about 15 minutes and wash it off. It should soften your face, reduce redness, and fade scars.
      Good Luck!

  34. QUESTION:
    good home recipes to getting rid of acne?
    i would like to know some good home recipes on getting rid of acne. without buying acne products at the store.

    • ANSWER:
      In the US, millions of dollars are being spent each year on acne medication, and acne skin care products; however, as most people who suffer from acne can attest, the majority of these products only give temporary relief, with the added downside of mild to severe side effects.

      If you're someone who's struggling with mild to moderate acne, you can control it with natural products you can find around the house, or your garden. Here are 5 great acne home remedy recipes that you can prepare right in your kitchen. These are things you can use safely to keep your pores closed, to treat surface infection, reduce swelling, and soften your skin.

      Thyme As An Astringent

      Thyme is excellent for treating acne. Add about 1 tablespoon of dried thyme, or a small bunch of fresh thyme to 1 cup of boiling water, and steep for at least fifteen minutes. Strain and store in a jar in the refrigerator. Apply to skin as an astringent to tighten pores. Keep in the refrigerator for about one week.

      Calendula as a Toner

      Calendula (marigold) is one of those power herbs that has many uses. Taken internally, calendula has been used to reduce inflammation, as a detox to cleanse the liver and gallbladder, and to treat digestive disorders. Calendula is also an excellent skin care herb for the treatment of acne. It soothes inflammation, and it's effective in healing damaged tissue caused by acne.

      Use calendula toner as part of your daily acne skin care regimen. To make the toner, add one teaspoon of dried calendula flowers to one cup of boiling water, and steep until it cools. Strain, and store in a clean jar with a tightly fitting lid. Keep in the refrigerator for about a week.

      Keep Your Pores Clean With Garlic.

      There have been many reports evidencing the healing benefits of garlic when applied to the skin to treat acne. Apply a paste of two crushed cloves of garlic to the face taking care not to get any of it in your eyes. Leave on for no more than 15 minutes. If the smell bothers you, lather your face with pure African black soap, and rinse with warm water.

      This is a good treatment for acne, but you should use it with extreme caution if you have sensitive skin as garlic is very strong, and can burn, or irritate your skin. It's recommended that you do a skin test before applying it to your full face. You can also use garlic juice by crushing the garlic and squeezing the juice through a garlic press. Do spot treatment directly on the pimples, and zits. Leave on for 5 minutes then rinse with warm water.

      Baking Soda As A Mask And Exfoliator

      You can use baking soda to treat acne either as a mask or a scrub. When used as a facial mask, baking powder will absorb all the surface oil, tighten your pores, and leave your skin incredibly soft. To make the mask, mix baking soda with a little water into a paste. Apply to your face, and leave on for ten minutes, or until the mask is dry. Rinse with warm water.

      You can also use baking soda as a scrub to eliminate flaking skin, and excess dirt from you pores. Rinse your face in warm water. While your skin is still dripping wet, begin to massage the baking powder into your skin in a circular motion, apply more water as needed. Follow with your favorite toner or astringent.

      Clay Mask

      Clay has been used as a healing therapy since ancient times. Many animals in the wild, and primitive tribes around the world have used clay instinctively to eliminate toxins from the body, to regulate digestive problems, and to treat skin disorders.

      A clay facial mask does wonders for any kind of skin. In the case of a acne, regular use of clay masks reduce infection, swelling, and help close the pores while leaving you with a glowing skin. If you chose to use clay masks to treat acne, I recommend that you get pure living, therapeutic clay such as montmorillonite, bentonite, or pascalite. There are many prepared clay masks that you can find over the counter; however, most of them contain other ingredients, and preservatives.

      As a remedy to treat acne, I recommend you apply a mask made of pure living clay at least once a week. Mix the clay with water to make a paste, apply to your face avoiding the eyes. Leave on until the clay dries then, rinse off with warm water.

There are very little side effects from using Tea Tree Oil.

  36. QUESTION:
    How can i get rid of my acne?
    ok well my acne is not that bad it can be covered up easily but i want to get rid of it. i have used dermatitis stuff before or like 3 years. it works but not great because i don't use it every night. It i dont touch my face and wash it a lot but it comes back.. what should i use what should i get.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Ninety five percent of the people who use conventional acne treatments get rid of their acne temporarily and sometimes their acne ends up worse than when they started. Curing acne can never be achieved by tackling one of the many factors responsible for acne. If you've ever tried to cure your acne using a one-dimensional treatment like antibiotics or even detox diets and failed it's probably because you tackled only one aspect of the disease.

      The Acne, skin care and drug industries are filled with snake oil marketing vampires that are getting rich by preying on our desperation, hopes and dreams. The second thing we discovered is that almost everyone is dead wrong in the way they try to control and treat their acne. It's a fact; the methods we're probably using right now to clear our acne might be severely damaging our internal system and your health.

      Most of us have tried: Accutane, Antibiotics, Zenmed, Proactive, Oratin, Benezoyl peroxide, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, macrobiotics, reflexology, Chinese Medicine, vegetarianism, the Wai diet, magnetic therapy, the mucus-less diet, blood type diet, went to psychiatrists, homeopaths and even healers...Yet we Still Suffered From Severe Acne.

      Needless to say most of these methods, treatments and so called cures either made our skin condition and our acne worse and filled us with heart breaking disappointment and frustration or they worked only short term, and acne came back with a vengeance. Some of these treatments simply didn't have any effect what so ever on our skin condition.

      The only way you can ever cure your acne is from within by listening to what your body is trying to tell you, work with it and free yourself by curing your acne holistically, just like i do.

  38. QUESTION:
    When to stop an acne treatment after not seeing any results?
    I've been using AcneFree Severe for a little over a month and a half and have seen NO positive results. my acne has not gotten any better, it has just stayed exactly the same. my question is, when is it time to say enough and that the product will not work for me? has it been long enough to accurately assume that it isn't going to work? is there an amount of time you should usually see results before giving up and trying a new product? thank you for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      I would say not more than two weeks. Your body takes about 3-4 days to process and detox everything you ingest. If there have been no results yet, there won't be. This goes for topical treatments too.

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxify : Detox improves health, energy, resistance to disease, mental state, digestion, as well as aiding in weight loss. Many dietitians, and doctors, however, regard 'detox diets' as less effective than drinking a glass of water, and view 'detox diets' as generally harmless but a waste of money."Detox" diets usually suggest that water, or fruits and vegetables compose a majority of one's food intake. Limiting this to unprocessed (and sometimes also non-GM) foods is often advocated. Limiting or eliminating alcohol is also a major factor, and drinking more water is similarly recommended.

  40. QUESTION:
    What are some good anti-acne fruits/vegitables and body wash products?
    I've got some gross bacne, and it's starting to bug me. What are some good anti-acne fruits/vegitables and body wash products that can get rid of it? Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      There's a lot more to acne than eating more fruit and veges and putting something on your face will cure.
      Acne is basically a liver overload problem. Doctors generally speaking don't know about this and will give you meds which will make the underlying problem worse.
      Your best bet is to go and see a naturopath and listen to what they have to say. If they tell you you need liver support and a liver cleansing program then you're on the money. If not, try another one.

      As well as that, you need to clean your face IN A WAY WHICH DOESN'T DRY OUT THE OILS IN YOUR SKIN. I know it sounds wrong, you think that oil is the cause of acne, but it's not. When it mixes with dirt and gets stuck in the pores it does form plugs, but oil itself is the way to dissolve the plugs and clean the pores out. Using soap and strong cleansers, especially ones with alcohol, will make it worse. It'll look like it's working at first but it'll quickly go back to worse than it was before.
      Organic castor oil mixed with organic sunflower seed oil is an excellent cleanser. Read all about it here.

      http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/

      Finally, you need to stop exposing yourself to chemicals which will add to your liver detox overload. If you're a teenager going thru puberty, a big factor in this is the hormones your body is making. These have to be broken down and eliminated from your body. You can’t do much about that but it makes it doubly important to address the other sources of chemical overload – from junk food and drinks, smoking, drugs, alcohol, your environment, personal products etc.
      Dairy products are also apparently a problem for acne, and gluten in flour is another problem food. Cut them out completely.

      If you suffer from stress, same thing - major load of hormone breakdown products for your liver to deal with. Cut out all alcohol and anything else which damages your liver. That includes paracetamol (Panadol). Clean up your diet, avoid inhaling chemicals and putting them on your skin. Check the labels on your bath products and laundry detergent. They all end up inside your body and add to the liver overload.

      Exercise regularly and intensively - every day if you can. That's a great way to help get toxins out of your body,, sweating and puffing and making your heart race.
      Cut out all sugar and especially sugar substitutes from your diet. Cut out soft drinks. Go on a low-carb diet – ask your naturopath how to do that.

      Get a good dose of sunlight as often as you can, in the middle of the day. Just 10 minutes a day at first. All over your body not just your face. The vitamin D which it produces in your body will help greatly.

      Do all that and you should get rid of it in 90% of cases. If not you may have some unusual cause which needs further investigation. But don’t try to save money by treating it yourself. Go and get professional help, from a wholistic practitioner. Don’t use pharmaceutical drugs except as a last resort, they are usually not the answer and cause a lot of damage in many patients

      3 Important Measures to Take for Acne Free Skin

      #1 - Detox
      If you were experiencing acne for a long period, and treatments aren't effective in your case, then think about detox plan. There are many approaches to detox our bodies. It is possible to follow one day or two day detox, or even a week's detox. Salt water flush is an excellent detox, that you can consider. However, in case you have a medical condition then talk to your doctor before you take up a detox plan. So, why am I emphasizing on detox? This is because a lot of people have problems with acne because of constipation. In case you have constipation related problems then under-going a detox will immensely help cleanse your whole body from the inside. This can bring a proper glow for a skin, and also steer clear of the acne condition.

      #2 - Healthy Skin Diet
      Unhealthy diets also contribute much to oily acne prone skin. However, eating the right fats can actually reinstate your skin's health. So, follow a skin-friendly diet. Skin friendly acne diet should be such that it have a great deal of fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid foods that are fried, instead learn healthy strategies to cooking like grilling, steaming, baking, etc. Eat lean proteins like turkey. Also, avoid the bad fats and eat Mediterranean style fats like essential olive oil, nuts, fish, etc. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and sodas. Instead drink plenty of water the whole day and 2-3 servings of green tea. Drinking lots of water and green tea herb, behaves as your daily detox. One excellent way to fight acne would be to drink fresh carrot juice without sugar. Carrot juice has wonderful benefits for skin, enjoy it allows you fight acne, acne scars, environmental sun damage and helps to make the complexion brighter.

      #3 - Skin Cleansing
      Skin cleansing is an essential part to avoid and cure acne. There are lots of solutions to do it. A straightforward way to do this can be to maintain washing the face with lukewarm water. Acne occurs when the bacteria with a clogged skin pore grows. This causes inflammation giving rise to pimples. By washing see your face you may be removing dirt, and ultizing lukewarm water the sebum from skin will dissolve as well as the bacteria too will be washed away. For deeper cleansing, make use of a mild cleanser which suits your skin. Neat and Clear face wash is a good mild cleanser. You'll be able to wash see your face which has a face wash twice a day. Remaining day you may use lukewarm water to clean the face. In the event you don't possess lukewarm water, regular faucet water can do.

      Some Natural Homemade Cures to counter Acne
      The most important thing to do if you suffer from Acne is to drink at least four pints of water every day. Drinking a lot of water is very beneficial to your skin. Including fresh fruit and leafy green vegetables in your daily diet will also bring about a marked improvement in the quality of your complexion.

      Before bathing, apply a mixture of tomato pulp – real tomota pulp, not packaged one – honey and rose-water to your face and keep for twenty minutes before washing off.

      At night, before going to bed, apply a mix of cream, glycerine, and lemon juice to your face and again keep it on for a short while before washing.

      Regular Yoga exercises will also improve skin and overall health.

      Things to Avoid
      Avoid touching your face all the time, keep your hair away from your face, and avoid picking at pimples.

      Another important thing if you're prone to Acne is to avoid using heavy make-up – in fact, it is preferable to avoid make-up altogether. For an effective cure, stay as natural as possible.

  44. QUESTION:
    I have really bad acne on my shoulders, chest, and sometimes my back. What would you recommend doing?
    I have mostly blackheads there and people say to pop them, but I hate doing that because it hurts. Is there any certain wash that will get rid of the blackheads/acne?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't pop them - that'll just create scarring - I should know because I have scars on my chest and back after years of doing just that. I’ve been following an ebook course called Acne Erasing Secrets for three weeks now. After about 5 days I noticed my acne had almost all cleared away. Also the scars on my face that I’ve had for years are becoming lighter. They’re literally fading. I would highly recommend the course. It starts with an apple detox but it follows up with what food to eat and what not to eat, products and masks to use and other detoxing/cleansing tips.

  45. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of acne for good?
    My skin is very sensitive, I dont sweat, I dont know what the problem is? What is a cheap NATURAL way to get rid of my horrible acne!?!

    • ANSWER:
      Women are automatically at a disadvantage when it comes to acne because every month our hormones fluctuate drastically and that causes the chemical balance of the skin to be thrown off.

      1) The very first thing when you wake up is to have a mug of hot water and add two tablespoons of pure lemon juice, give it half an hour before you eat or drink anything else. This will start a detox mechanism in your body which will effect even your skin.

      2) Clean your teeth/tongue and use mouthwash when you wake up and when you go to bed. A lot of people notice worse breakouts around their mouth and chin and often the culprit is night time drooling. By cleaning your teeth and mouth thoroughly you are greatly reducing the number of bacteria in the mouth and throat which means there is less to be spread if any unconscious drooling does occur.

      3) Once you've cleaned your teeth the next step is to wash your face with a mild, plain antibacterial soap -DO NOT- scrub it, just foam the soap across the surface and splash it off then pat it dry. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they scrub at their skin to remove the dead layers but skin will naturally come away when it's ready and tearing at it to get rid of it causes infection to get into the pores which in turn causes more acne.
      Follow this with a light moisturizer. From my personal experience (sensitive skin too) I find that my skin doesn't like creams and lotions so I recommend using a gel like aloe vera and just brush a thin layer over the surface, massaging it lightly in with your fingertips until it's dry.
      Everyone has a different preference for moisturizer and you'll find one that you like but I do recommend a gel base.

      Repeat 2 & 3 just before you go to sleep.

      4) If you have long hair then tie it back at night so it isn't falling across your face. Oily hair does not help acne-prone skin.
      ------------------------

      I also recommend eating Garlic. Garlic is a natural antibiotic and antiseptic, it contains about every vitamin and mineral the body needs and the effect it has on minor infections (like acne) is incredible. It will kick your immune system into high gear making it difficult for bacteria to colonize beneath the skin which will automatically slow your breakouts.
      Garlic doesn't have the nicest of tastes but if you can get into the habit of eating a clove a day then the difference will be astonishing. Think of it like taking your natural pill a day, you don't do it for the pleasure but out of necessity.
      The easiest and quickest way is to crush it in a press and mix it with some butter, then just use it on toasted bread like garlic butter.
      Some people just can't do it so fair enough but I do recommend it, not only for your acne but for your overall health (there are also garlic capsules that you do just swallow like a pill so you won't have to taste it, it's not quite as effective but it will still help.

  46. QUESTION:
    i took a laxative and it helped rid of my acne?
    what is it about a laxative that helped get rid of acne?

    • ANSWER:
      Well it wasn't actually the laxative, it was the fact that you had a good bowel movement brought on by the laxative. When we harvest toxins in our body, they have a tendency to show through our skin. Acne can be a sign that you have toxins in your body that you need to get rid of. You basically gave yourself a good detox. Just don't get reliant on them. With a good diet change rich in fiber you should be able to control your acne from now on.

    and don't say PROACTIVE either.
    oops, expensive.
    oh, and i also heard birth control helps clear it up, is that true?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, you may think that I am crazy, but... take a hot shower and dry off. Then, put honey on your chest, just all over the affected area. Then, wash off the honey with warm water and splash cold water on your chest after the honey is washed off (this closes the pores) Then, put toothpaste on the individual blemishes. The hot shower opens the pores, the cold water closes pores, the honey hydrates and detoxes the skin, and the toothpaste dries out the blemishes. BY THE WAY... LEAVE THE TOOTHPASTE ON ALL NIGHT AND WASH IT OFF IN THE MORNING.

Pimples breakout means poor digestive system,i mean not seriously,but a bit yeah. i dont really know cuz i'm not a doctor. pimple breakouts are way for your body to expel bad stuffs and toxins from the foods you consume,highly caused by foods if it isn't hereditary in your case. here's quick tips:

      1)Drink LOADS of water,water helps to flush out toxin and bad stuffs out of your body. But remember dont force yourself to drink if you feel very full. just increase your daily water intake.

      2) Eat vegetables and fruits. Mainly apples,many of them :D they are good,they have pectin which can absorb those toxins,which are then flush out. fibers are good to make your digestive system run clean

      3) Dont consume high carbohydrate stuffs,like white bread,modified noodles,cookies and all junk foods,they contain excessive sugar and synthetic materials,no good at all

      4) Detox,do buy a kit from a pharmacy,this can clean your digestive systems and get ridd of most toxins,do this once a month

      5) Exercise a lot. good blood circulation makes nutrients to go along your whole body and nourish them,(healing spots)

      facial steamers are good,makes pores on your face to widen a bit and let toxins out. wine and alcohols are no good,they mess up with your liver,liver plays the main role in detoxifying your body.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are your thoughts on a liquid detox?
    This is just temporary.. I ate a lot of junk food recently, I stopped drinking fizzy drinks for over a month and then had 2 last weekend, and a lot of food. I want to do a liquid detox.. not to lose weight, just to cleanse my body.. I was thinking just water, cucumber juice, home made soups and smoothies, or just water and cucumber juice. I only plan on doing it for 3-4 days. Would it be dangerous? If I get extremely hungry i'll just eat some fruit or something.

    I'm not doing it to lose weight. After the detox I will eat healthier with meat and veg and work out more.

    I'm 21 with no health problems.

    Thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxing is ridiculous. What toxins are you trying to get rid of?? Your body is well equipped to deal with the toxins you come into contact with- it's why we have kidneys and a liver. You're aware that humans actually create cyanide in our bodies, right? There's nothing you will eat or drink that's more toxic than that, so if we can get rid of it naturally, we can get rid of whatever is in a soda or some cupcakes.

  2. QUESTION:
    Do you know any good liquid detox plans to clean out the toxins?
    I want to do a healthy 3 day liquid detox to get rid of the toxins and eliminate sugar cravings.

    • ANSWER:
      Drink only Cranberry juice.
      It will detox your hole system, and is good for you.

  3. QUESTION:
    How do I start a detox diet?
    Ive been thinking of going on a detox diet to rid my body of toxins. Im 17 and weigh 107. I want to do a 7 day liquid detox diet...but since im so small will this hurt me? Im already a vegetarian so I already dont eat meats.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jessica

      You need to be really careful following a pure liquid detox. Your body can very quickly lose some important nutrients and can open your body's immune system to infections.

      The body is able to rid itself of toxins through the liver, kidneys and skin, if you follow a diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and whole grains also drinking enough water - avoid all processed foods, sugar, stimulants, and alcohol. This is usually thought to be the best type of body cleansing as you get the necessary nutrients.

      Whatever you do take care!

    What Is A Good Liquid Detox?
    Me and my fiance are planning to try for a baby but i would like to detox my body first. i want to try a liquid detox, but any kind of detox would be wonderful. pleaseee help ( :

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to cleanse and detox is to get hold of a liver. Oh, you have one? Great.
      Now just stand there and let it detoxify your body. Partner it with some kidneys and you've got the most efficient body cleanse and detox system known to man.
      And you don't even have to wait for it to come in the mail, or give a credit card number!
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients. The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, kidneys, urine, and feces.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal processed and refined foods. THey are loaded with additives, concentrates, and preservatives mostly in added sugars and salts.
      Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, lean meat cuts, fresh fish, beans, peas, brown rice, raw nuts, and barley keep a system as healthy and as clean as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet of whole fresh foods works every time. Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both normal internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      Spend your money in the produce department to speed your detox.
      Good luck and good health.

  15. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a good liquid diet to go on?
    I need to lose weight and think I could first start off with a liquid detox

    • ANSWER:
      Four times a year I go on a liquid cleanse to give my body a break. We actually spend 50% of our energy digesting food, so drinking only liquids or at the most purees, your digestive system doesn't have to work hard and it also cleanses your system and alkalizes your body.

      So here is the "liquid feast" as I like to call it. For 7-10 days, juice (fresh vegetables and fruit that you juice yourself if possible or use a local juice bar), puree vegetables and mix with some simple seasonings to make a soup, use vegetable broth (no additives) and create a vegetable soup mixed with some puree, get some green drink mix from your local natural food market (freeze dried is best with grasses, barley grass, wheat grass), and also drink 3-4 liters of water per day. You can eat as much of the soups and purees as you would like and just keep drinking water and the green drinks.

      This by itself is amazing. I do multiple of these every year and any client I get that is in need of a cleanse, has an illnesses or even wants to just jump start their health I have them do this to start. It's fantastic.

      Best of luck!

  16. QUESTION:
    How do I do a full body detox without and supplements or pills?

    Thanks for your help

    • ANSWER:
      I tried to do a juicing detox (juice fresh veggies and fruit) but i got really hungry and weak feeling. And then did some research. These detox "diets" out there are not good for your body at all. The only reason you would need a detox is if you eat bad. Im a Vegan ( I don't eat meat or dairy products) I haven't always been vegan so im not pushing being vegan on anyone, But i think that if you go Vegan for a while 2-4 weeks you will be cleaned out and feel wonderful and it can kick start a diet. You need food to function so cutting out food and doing a liquid diet it so bad ( I don't know why I tried) I don't eat processed food, i do sneak in bread once in a while, But cutting out processed food is a wonderful way to clean your body out.

      I hope this has helped. and please be careful if you do a liquid detox or choose one veggie or fruit and eat it all day (the other answer someone has given you) they dont give your body everything it needs.

  17. QUESTION:
    What is the best and most natural method for a detox?
    I am doing some research on detox and various ways of going about it. I am looking for natural, organic methods of detox. My questions are, have you detoxed before? How long is the process? What does it do exactly? What are the outcomes? Do you think it's healthy and how often should it be done?

    • ANSWER:
      A herb called milkthistle is a natural way to clean out toxins from your liver, etc & it's a gentle way to do it. I used a product called Legalon I think, which was basically milkthistle in tablet form. I guess maybe doing this once or twice a year until the box or bottle is finished.

      I've also tried the drastic product called Colozone. It's very high in magnesium & you take it every night for 7 days & it flushes out your system just like a colonic. It's pretty drastic though, like every morning you have to run to the toilet because it all comes out like liquid diarrhea! It sure did work for cleaning out your system (you should only do this once per year) but it was quite an experience.

      Also psyillium husks are good for intestinal cleansing. It's a powder you put in orange juice & drink everyday, it's basically a gentle fibre & very good for your system, particularly if you tend to not have muesli or anything like that for breakfast. It basically just keeps you having a regular daily bowel movement. It's also very inexpensive & you can get it at your health store. Doctors often recommend it for people who don't consume enough fibre in their diet & maybe get constipated sometimes or aren't having a bowel movement every day.

      A product called HMD heavy metal detox is the best on the market for using if you think you are overloaded with chemicals from things like hair dye you've been using or maybe you've been doing something around chemicals like painting your house or something. It's quite expensive though & not worth it unless you think you're sensitive to chemicals. Also anti perspirants are bad re the chemicals they release into your body (like aluminium cholorhydrate) & you should only use ones with natural ingredients (although it can be a search to find one that actually stops the smell of sweat - I've only managed to find one - it's called Spring Fresh deoderant by Natures Gate in California). Try googling it to buy online if it's not available locally.

      How do I know all this? Trial & error & my naturopath has recommended all this to me & she knows all the good brands (as some are bad quality). So there you go, I've spend a few hundred dollars at my naturopath to find all this out & now you have the same info for free!

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the best detox to help jump start diet?
    Im going to start a low carb diet and was wondering why kind of detox type thing would really help get things going? Suggestions anyone?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi There,

      Many people detox to lose weight (hence the many varieties of starvation detox diets) or use it in order to continue with unhealthy and over-indulgent lifestyles! The dangers come in when people chose unsafe detox methods without considering the harmful side-effects, such as colonic irrigation, or liquid-diets that rob the body of essential nutrients.

      It is therefore important to explore detox options and choose one that gently assists the body, without causing any harm during the process. It is also not advisable to use detoxing as a quick fix weight-loss plan as this promotes “yo-yo” dieting that has been linked with weight-gain.

      There are many herbal ingredients that may aid in a natural detoxification of the body. Dandelion and Fennel are just two herbs that have been used throughout history to cleanse and aid body detoxification, rejuvenate liver functioning, and kick-start the body back to life! Pelargonium reniforme is another ingredient that also works on promoting optimal liver functioning and supporting the body's natural ability to break down and eliminate fat for a natural detoxification.

      One such natural remedy is http://www.healthherbsandnutrition.com/products/detoxdrops.htm which has gained considerable popularity due to its zero side effects, support realistic and healthy weight management programs, and its supportive function in maintaining liver health and well-being.

      Check it out and see if it helps. It seems, it generally does.

      Good Luck!

  20. QUESTION:
    Does Great Plains Bentonite detox get affected, and or become less potent by a temperature change?
    I am using Bentonite clay as a detox, and I initially had it stored in the fridge, but eventually took it out and it is now in one of my kitchen cabinets.
    I only want to know if that temperature change can affect the bentonite in a negative way? Thanks in advance. 10 points to the best answer.
    I failed to mention that I am using the Bentonite you drink for internal cleansing.

    • ANSWER:
      its ok..clay will not get affected by temp changes...check storage details on the bottle

      1. Use liquid bentonite, a colloidal-gel. I mix my powdered calcium bentonite in filtered water to form a gel-like constituency and keep it in a glass jar with a plastic cover. Do not use metal containers or metal spoons with clay.

      Calcium bentonite also called calcium montmorillonite is used for detox purposes whereas sodium bentonite is used for industrial purposes.

      2. Take one tablespoon of liquid bentonite in a glass of water first thing in the morning or at least an hour before food

      It has no taste. But, if you do not like the tasteless taste, take it with apple juice to make it more palatable.

      3. Drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day to help bowel movements.

      4. As a result of its highly absorbent nature, it must be taken at least two hours before taking any medicine. It probably will absorb and eliminate the drug as well.

      5. After a week, if you are comfortable taking bentonite clay as a cleansing agent, increase the dosage to twice a day. First thing in the morning and before you go to bed. You can easily take bentonite clay for a few months, say six months.

      6. After two or three weeks you will find a lot of improvement in your bowel movements and your energy level.

      7. You can also make a paste of the bentonite and apply on your skin to eliminate acne and any form of skin rash.

      8. You can take bentonite clay with psyllium husk, probiotics and even liquid chlorophyll. The homemade colon cleanse in how to cleanse your colon will show you how.

  21. QUESTION:
    Can you drink water during the lemon detox diet?
    I am going to try the lemon detox diet, and I know it says you can't eat, but can I drink water?

    • ANSWER:
      Our bodies contain the #1 tools essential to cleanse and detox. A liver and a pair of kidneys.
      The only and easiest way to cleanse and detox is to stop putting all the chemicals, additives and concentrates from a diet of processed and refined foods in our daily diet.
      Most drugs, alcohol, and food chemicals exit the body through normal processing and filtering by the liver and kidneys over a period of 3 to 4 days.
      A healthy diet of whole fresh foods is the key to "cleansing" and "detoxing".
      There is no miracle diet or product that will accelerate the process.
      Our bodies are designed starting with the teeth to consume whole solid foods. The stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, and colon are all designed to work with solid foods, not highly concentrated juices. That is why we have teeth instead of blender blades in our mouths.
      Both soluble and insoluble fiber are part of a healthy diet. Juicing substantially reduces the value and effectiveness of insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber keeps the nutrients and toxic cellular waste dumped back into the lower small intestine moving through the digestive tract. This reduces the amount of time waste spends in the body and lowers toxicity.
      While juicing concentrates nutrients, it also concentrates natural sugars in fruits. Liquids are absorbed much quicker in the small intestines resulting in spiking of blood sugar and insulin levels in the blood.
      WIthout complex carbohydrates and large insoluble fibers in the digestive system to extend and slow the absorption process, insulin spikes occur too often. A simple example is giving a diabetic with low blood sugar a glass of juice. It enters the bloodstream quickly. Constant insulin spikes increase appetite stimulation. So you can end up drinking even more juice. The problem with any fast or cleanse is things will change when it ends.
      A healthy life diet of whole fresh foods including lean meats, eggs, fish, dairy, whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables are the keys to health, proper weight, and overall wellness. Avoid as much processed and refined food as possible.
      Long I know but it is important to point out the change to a clean diet is the key yet we readily give the credit to the pill, potion, diet pill, detox, cleanse, or fad diet.
      Good luck and good health.

      It is therefore important to explore detox options and choose one that gently assists the body, without causing any harm during the process. It is also not advisable to use detoxing as a quick fix weight-loss plan as this promotes “yo-yo” dieting that has been linked with weight-gain.

      There are many herbal ingredients that may aid in a natural detoxification of the body. Dandelion and Fennel are just two herbs that have been used throughout history to cleanse and aid body detoxification, rejuvenate liver functioning, and kick-start the body back to life! Pelargonium reniforme is another ingredient that also works on promoting optimal liver functioning and supporting the body's natural ability to break down and eliminate fat for a natural detoxification.

      One such natural remedy is http://www.healthherbsandnutrition.com/products/detoxdrops.htm which has gained considerable popularity due to its zero side effects, support realistic and healthy weight management programs, and its supportive function in maintaining liver health and well-being.

      Check it out and see if it helps. It seems, it generally does.

      Good Luck!

    What do I need to go on the 21 pounds and 21 days diet detox or something similar?
    Can someone give me a list of what I need to buy to go on the 21 pounds and 21 days diet detox? I'm looking for items I can buy at my local heath food store or grocery store.

    • ANSWER:
      it's just liquid so get juices and smoothies. Maybe get a juice recipe book.

  24. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of an organic Candida cleansing kit in a powder or liquid form?
    I need to find a good Candida cleansing kit in powder or liquid form because I can not swallow pills. I prefer a kit that is organic. Can anyone tell me where I can find a kit such as I have described?

    • ANSWER:
      Ooh, sounds dangerous. I hope you're in contact with a doctor about this. Yahoo answers is a good place for quick info, but I wouldn't consider it the best place to get important health help.

      Have you done your homework on the condition? I like to use Amazon.com to track down books that have been highly rated by users. Just search on Candida and then start reading through all the reviews. If I'm not mistaken, Candida really needs to be controlled with diet as well as detox.

      Personally, I'm no expert on the condition so I'm not certain what type of detox you need. There are all sorts of different types and, in most cases, I've heard there's an order you should detox. Colon, then liver, then blood and kidneys, etc. I can't guarantee this is true, but I've read it.

      If colon detox is what you're after, I've used a system called Colonix by Dr. Natura. I like it best out of the few I've tried because I have trouble swallowing a lot of capsules myself. I also like the way the detox herbs are organized. It makes sense to me. Basically, the system is in 3 parts: powdered fiber and herbs that you mix into water, tea, and some capsules (significantly fewer than other systems. I think the most you ever take / day is 4). You can find out more from their extensive website, DrNatura.com. As a side note, the product is kind of pricey, but I really appreciated the ready customer service they made available because I did have questions.

      Whatever you do, I don't think we can stress enough how important it is to be in contact with a doctor about all this (if you're not already). Hope you're feeling well soon!

  25. QUESTION:
    What are NATURAL ways to detox my body at home?
    Anything you guys know about that I can make at home?
    I don't want to buy any fancy stuff. Something simple, with stuff I already have at home.
    I tried drinking water right after I wake up, but it's kinda hard.
    Im 16 , 185 lbs, 5ft 11".
    Im starting swimming soon, so I want to go with a detox formula to flush away my toxins and fat.
    I have chronic constipation also.

    • ANSWER:
      Look, you are not a walking bag of toxins and you do not need to drink or eat anything unusual to detoxify yourself. You already own the world's most efficient onboard filters for the purpose- you call them your liver and kidneys. Your body already removes waste, in urine and feces, on a regular basis. Nothing you can eat is going to leach things out of your body, at least not things like heavy metals. It just doesn't work that way. If you want to keep your body in tip top form for swimming, the best thing you could do is simply eat a well balanced diet, heavy on the whole grains, fruits and veggies, and light on refined foods, fast foods, red meat, and fats. Drinking water is fine, and you can do that whenever you drink liquid. It doesn't even have to be straight water either. Your body routinely gets the fluid it needs from all the food you eat, even if it's not drunk. Melons are primarily water and fiber, as are many fruits and veggies. You also will want to up the calcium intake, so you have material to build bone and muscle with. The best sources of that are still dairy products, but you just don't need all the fat. So stick with low to no fat dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt. Avoid the empty calories in junk foods and sodas. Do not try mixing up concoctions of strange things to eat or drink. They simply don't work, and your body won't appreciate the effort to help out. All you have to do is eat right, and trust your body knows what to do with the rest. That's the most natural way going.

  26. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to naturally detox the body?
    What calories, foods, and liquids are necessary? Supplements not too pricey?

    • ANSWER:
      FASTING - Cleansing of the inner body. Don't be mistaken by the word FASTING. It's not a measure of starvation but inner Detoxification of your body. :D

      The three ways our bodies handle toxins are neutralizing, transforming or eliminating them. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. The liver transforms toxic substances into harmless agents. And blood carries waste to the kidneys or liver, eliminating through the bladder or intestines. Elimination can also occur through sweating during exercise or heat. These are only a few examples of the built-in cleaning mechanisms, working hard to maintain the thousands of miles of tubes and membranes. If all these systems are working well, and we are taking in fewer toxins than the body can detoxify; the result will be vibrant health and long life.

      The Result
      Ø Mental clarity is improved

      Ø Rapid, safe weight loss is achieved without flabbiness

      Ø The nervous system is balanced

      Ø Energy level is increased

      Ø Organs are revitalized

      Ø Cellular biochemistry is harmonized

      Ø The skin becomes silky, soft, and sensitive

      Ø There is greater ease of movement

      Ø Breathing becomes fuller, freer and deeper

      Ø The digestive system is given a well-deserved rest

      People testify that after making changes toward better eating, fasting becomes easier. You could say fasting is a measure of lifestyle.

      METHODS OF DETOXIFICATION

      Juice Fasting

      This is the best choice for detoxification because it supplies an abundance of nutrients, including enzymes and calories to reduce the cleansing intensity to a more comfortable level. Using an enema during a juice fast will flush the lymphatic system attached to the lower colon with water and help remove hardened fecal matter from the intestinal wall, while giving the digestive tract a chance to rest and heal.

      Water Fasting

      Water fasting demands more calories therefore cleansing will be intensified.

      Raw Food Diet

      The same cleansing reaction that is experienced on a juice fast will also be experienced on a raw food diet of fruit and vegetables but the process is slower.

      Eating Less

      This is a good way to start the detoxification process but can require the greatest discipline. Chew food 30 times and eat smaller amounts.

      Vegetarian Eating

      A light vegetarian diet will also aid detoxification. For example, fruit for breakfast, a salad for lunch and a meal of cooked vegetables with some raw nuts or beans and brown rice for dinner.

      Exercise

      During exercise the lymphatic system is being flushed and the cells are being flooded with health-giving oxygen. Walking, stretching and light exercise can benefit the body during a juice fast or cleansing diet.

      Best of luck on cleansing your body. :D

  27. QUESTION:
    How can I detox quickly and get all the toxins out of my body?
    What food and liquids will I need to drink to speed up this process?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to help your body is to eat a well balanced diet, heavy on the fruits, veggies and whole grains, and to drink plenty of fluid. Your body is designed well, and you already have built in "toxin" filters and eliminators. They are called your liver, kidneys, and colon. If you eat right and drink plenty of fluid, they can do the job nicely without your assistance. All those potions they sell for detox are nothing but expensive laxatives. Leaching heavy metals out of the body requires chelation therapy, which uses very dangerous chemicals delivered through an IV. It's only done in a hospital, under direct supervision of a doctor who knows what the heck he's doing- otherwise it can be dangerous and deadly. You are not a walking bag of toxins here, you don't have pockets of stuff hanging out in your intestines or liver gumming up the place- at least as long as you aren't seriously constipated. Your colon contains a great many bacteria that are actually beneficial to you, if you didn't- you would already have diarrhea and would not be looking for a detox method. Save your money and buy real food. Not fast food, not junk, and definitely not the overpriced laxative-detox preps. It's not a question of what particular food or foods, or liquids - it's a decent diet of real food that will do the most for your body. If you are picky about the fuel you put in the body, you don't have to worry about leaching things out. Have some faith in your own design. Humans have lived thousands of years without the need to cleanse our innards. I do believe we can safely survive another thousand or so without starting. If you really want to clean something up- try the environment. Clean the closets, the carpet, the windows- whatever. Just leave your innards alone. They know their business, and really won't appreciate the help.

  28. QUESTION:
    What juice helps with nic detox- quitting smoking?
    Is there a juice or something that will help the body detox faster to help minimize the time it takes to rid yourself of the withdrawl from cigs?
    We live on Braggs here, so I do have it..Thanks for the very helpful answer!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes a 50-50 combination fresh apple and carrot juice will detox the body quickly, as will wheat grass juice. The former, freshly done and unpasteurized, otherwise it is a waste. In place of wheat grass juice, you can consume wheat grass powder or liquid, and you'll find these in drug stores, health stores, and on the internet.

      An alternative is organic apple cider vinegar (most stores carry Braggs), not the Heinz pasteurized stuff, but organic, in a tonic of purified water and honey. Works like like a charm! Combine it with your carrot/apple juice, and you'll be detoxed in no time.

      And, load up on Vitamin C daily -- at least 3000 mg (5000 mg pref,). Keep increasing mg until you start experiencing a loose stool. There are many reasons for the C, but one of the major ones is to help alleviate any "ex-smoker's flu" at most people get.

      Which brings me to...you can feel absolutely miserable when detoxing -- all those toxins leaving your system frequently make you feel like you're about to die. Work through it, and soon all that will be gone.

      Good luck.

  29. QUESTION:
    how long would it take to detox off of marijuana by drinking water?
    How long would it take to detox off of marijuana with water, can you detox jut by drinking water?

    • ANSWER:
      Marijuana contains a fat soluble, psychoactivesubstance called THC, which takes a much longer time to exit the body than other drugs. Water soluble drugs get eliminated in a few days or weeks, but marijuana’s active chemical THC can remain stored in fat cells for months.

      There are simple home remedies can provide quick relief from withdrawal symptoms and aid in the overall process of the detox treatment. Listed are some remedies that you can try at home:

      Hot baths to calm aggressive moods
      Increase the intake of water and clear liquids to aid in flushing out toxins
      Cranberry juice is known to have purifying properties
      High levels of exercise to increase sweating - This allows toxins to escape the body. Care should be taken to replenish some of the useful minerals that may get lost in the process by increasing the intake of melons, bananas, citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in potassium and other minerals and can replenish the system.
      Reduce intake of fat to improve the overall functioning of the digestive system - This ensures that the natural detoxification process can perform more efficiently.
      Reduce caffeine intake help with insomnia - A glass of warm milk at bedtime instead is a proven traditional sedative.
      Workouts and breathing exercises to fight depression and emotional upheavals

  30. QUESTION:
    Just wondering if the Lemon Detox Diet is as good as they say?
    Thinking of doing this detox. Is it really hard to go without food for so long?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it is hard and it is bad for your body too. Any weight loss simply due to a lack of calories for an extended period of time. In addition to lacking calories from macro-nutrients (carbohydrates, fat, and protein), it is also lacking micro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals). This liquid diet of limited nutritional substance does raise concern and could be harmful and dangerous to some readers. People usually end up puuting more weight back on than they have lost, the body is starving!

      Experts say there's little evidence that extreme regimens such as the Master Cleanse or Fruit Flush do anything more than lead to unpleasant, unhealthy side effects.
      “Your body does a perfectly good job of getting rid of toxins on its own,” says Dr. Nasir Moloo, a gastroenterologist with Capitol Gastroenterology Consultants Medical Group in Sacramento, Calif. “There’s no evidence that these types of diets are necessary or helpful.”
      Healthy people already have a built-in detoxification system — the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin

  31. QUESTION:
    How do i start a detox?
    Im 15 and decided to start a detox just over the weekend.. im going to have plenty of water and fruits. Is the weekend enough. Can i still take my allergy and ashtsma medicine and fish oil?

    • ANSWER:
      You should always continue to take your medications during a 2 or 3 day detox - Your 2 conditions won't clear up in that short time. Your doctor should monitor you if you change your diet for a longer period of time.

      If you eat only fruits and freshly-made fruit juices over the weekend, you won't need to drink much water - water should be consumed only if you want it and feel the need for it. You'll get plenty of liquids with lots of fruits.

  32. QUESTION:
    How long is too long for an all liquid diet?
    I want to lose weight fast for an upcoming class reunion and I was just wanting to get some opinions of liquid diets. I had jaw reconstructive surgery a couple of years ago and was on an all liquid diet for 2-3 weeks because I couldn't open my mouth, much less chew anything and in which time I lost around 25 lbs. I ate lots of tomato soup and drank lots of apple juice threw a syringe. If I tried to do this again, is it good for a longer term diet? Say a few months? I wouldn't be just drinking juice or water I would incorporate some soups and broths...

    • ANSWER:
      You see, the point of fasting is to "detox"--you're removing all the toxins in your body because you are giving your body a break from digesting. (I don't remember where I read this, but somewhere it said that when we eat, our body puts digesting as its first priority, and will abandon whatever else it was doing. It will store it away to "save for later." However, often they never get to later, because we keep putting stuff if!) By giving it a break, our body has the time and capability to clean out all the "bad stuff" from our liver, colon, kidneys, etc.

      When you have a piece of chicken, or a sandwich, or a hard boiled egg, you're just undoing the whole purpose of the fast. You're kind of either going to do it or not. Don't worry about nutrition deficiency, you'll be fine with how long you're doing it (I would recommend anywhere from 3-7 days the first time, and then 10-14 days another time down the road, should you decide. This is adequate time without doing harm to your body. I think 7 is a good time to shoot for.)

      But *your* liquid diet isn't that good for you. Caffeine is full of acid, and dehydrates the body. Broths are FULL of sodium, which just retains water/leads to bloating. If you are to do a liquid diet (better than a water fast), do 100% fruit juice (meaning no added sweeteners; if you have a juicer juice away, it's even better!) and water it down so you don't get as many sugars as normal. And, of course, water. But please, no coffee, it's terrible for a fast!

  33. QUESTION:
    Know of any good natural ways to detox the body?
    lately i have been feeling sluggish and lazy. i used to exercise and now i just do not have the energy. i hear these can be symptoms that it is time to detox. never have before so any advice or plans will help thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Do a weekend liquid diet with lots of water, gatorade, sprite, clear broth, jello and multi vitamins. Also a little miralax a few times a day (over the counter to flush out the system). Then, slowly start replacing your old diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and sandwiches with a multigrain bread instead of white. In other words eat healthy. Start exercising again. My son used to detox his body one a month for a weekend. It works. The doctor required it. Be sure to check with a doctor before you decide to do any type of diet.

  35. QUESTION:
    Is there a Natural way to detox your lungs?
    How do you detox your lungs from exposure to cigarette smoke...NATURALLY?

    • ANSWER:
      From ehow.com:
      "When a smoker quits smoking, it is important to cleanse and detoxify the lungs to clear out all potential cancer-causing toxins. Coltsfoot and uva ursi are two of the most common herbs used by former smokers for this type of detoxification. These herbs not only cleanse the lungs, but also strengthen, maintain and nourish the entire respiratory system.
      Herbs which help to clear mucus are horehound and nettle. Other herbs that are used to cleanse the lungs are fenugreek, Irish moss, eucalyptus, licorice root, goldenseal and peppermint."

      You can find these herbal supplements at your local health food store in capsules or in liquid tinctures or you can consult with a professional herbalist.

      The anti-alternative medicine trolls will tell you everything is crap, there's no such thing, etc. The fact is there's nothing in conventional medicine that does anything, so the competition has to be smeared any way possible.

  36. QUESTION:
    Could someone please tell me how to begin a liquid diet cleanse?
    How often should I have a liquid meal and how long should I remain on the liquid diet?

    • ANSWER:
      i used kefir for liquid cleanse from time to time

      I find my energy is not compromised, and while I definitely detox the symptoms are not as severe.
      I use only aged kefir (at least two days in the fridge) that no longer smells yeasty.
      Some of the things I have noticed after/during a fast are:

      suppression of candida symptms
      mild flushing of liver/gallbladder
      cleansing of the bowel
      improved digestion

      I have never felt well while fasting. Even worse when trying a juice cleanse. This fast with kefir seems to be perfect for me

  37. QUESTION:
    If Water is the best liquid to drink?
    Why do we need to buy other things like Detox teas and stuff to clean out our system if they say Water is the best Detox liquid to drink? Do people spend their money foolishly on other stuff when they only need water and fresh fruits to eat.

    • ANSWER:
      There is marketing in everything.

      When 'they' say that water is the best detox liquid, it is because they are trying to sell more bottled water.

      The things we eat that affect health negatively, such as fast-foods and fizzy drinks, are popular because they are 'sold' effectively. It is difficult to counteract this comprehensive promotion without promoting an alternative just as vigorously.

      In reality, any plant infusion (herbal teas etc.) conains a range of different oils, enzymes, minerals and other natural chemicals that can affect the way you feel or the way your body reacts.

      Some of these are useful, and some are 'ritual'; by focusing on the 'positive action' you are taking by drinking the stuff, it is possible to gain some extra motivation to keep improving your lifestyle.

      Everybody is motivated a bit differently from everybody else, so some of these products may well be a waste of money, but others can be a useful psychological tool to motivate change.

  38. QUESTION:
    How do you work out calorie content when you juice your own fruit or veg?
    I am following a one day juice detox and am interested to know how many calories I am consuming. Does anyone know how you calculate calories for this? Do you base it on the whole vegetable or fruit or is it less becuse there will be no pulp. I am not trying to monitor or restrict my intake particularly but just curious as I would like to have juices on other days when I am eating normally. Maybe I could measure the juice output but that would be quite fiddly to do and wonder if there is an easier way.
    I have been juicing carrots, apples, pears, oranges and lemons.

    • ANSWER:
      Hmmm toughie, I suppose thats why you dont have any answers. What you have to remember here is that your turning a solid into liquid, but not extracting its natural water content. I personally would calculate the calorific content of juice by counting for the whole fruit or veg. If anything you'll over calculate, not over calculate and misjudge you calorie intake for that day. Remember to add the calorie and fat if your using icecream or yoghurt as a liquid aid for the juice though.

    Blenders on the other hand will definitely chop but probably would not make a good shake...

    • ANSWER:
      the urine test is the easiest to pass.

      urine can be easily diluted with water to the point than no drug metabolites can be detected. Here's how:

      Do not test on the first urine of the day, it is the dirtiest. About 1 - 2 hours before the urinalysis, drink at least 1 liter of water and an energy drink, and take a multivitamin if possible. The large amounts of liquid dilutes the urine so that nothing can be detected, and the energy drink and vitamin cause your urine to be yellow, so they will not suspect anything - clear urine may give them a reason to believe you are attempting to dilute your sample, and they'll either make you redo the test or send it for further testing.

  43. QUESTION:
    Which detox method and duration?
    I want to detox before I become raw vegan (I am already vegan). So far I am looking at either: juice in general, water-only, lemon juice or raw fruits and veggies method. Does have any experience and know which method is best (or another better method) or how long I should go for? And how much I should excersise during my detox?

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with GivePeasAChance. You should only have to detox if what you have been eating has something to detox out of you.

      If you want to do a juice/liquid fast, then I recommend a lot of apple juice (for pectin which is good for the colon, for more available enzymes) with any juice or water in between. One of my favorites is fresh carrot juice with a bit of ginger and cucumber. All pure juices have different benefits, so use them all. I recommend that you limit or eliminate exercise while on a juice fast. Your muscles and body will not be able to function and repair in a healthy way without proper nutrition. I like to meditate in place of exercise; cleanse the soul when you cleanse the body.

      Juices have incomplete The problem with juices is that you loose some of the benefits that the raw or whole fruit provides, such as fiber (a big loss) and others. Limit the fast to three days plus or minus a day (your body requires more nutrients than the juice can provide after that).

      Most importantly, listen to your body. It can tell you more than what I can. I can only provide a guideline. Also, remember that moderation resonates with our bodies.

  45. QUESTION:
    How come so many people believe in stupid diets and fads?
    All I see on hear is people asking how they can lose weight fast. Then they get many answers of people advertising some redicoulous detox liquid diet or herbal pills THAT DON'T WORK. If you lose any weight from this crap it is because
    1. It is water weight
    2. Your not eating anything

    and when you go back to your normal routine all the weight will come back. Why can't people just diet and exercise????

    • ANSWER:
      The internet is a breeding ground for fat lazy persons to search for the magic way to cure their weight problem. Seems like people are beginning to HATE physical activity these days. I actaully answered a question asked by a 60 year old woman who was trying to find a way to drop 60lbs fast. I gave her a very informative answer on ways to easily change your lifestyle that is right for you. Did she choose my answer?? Nope. She chose the answer of somebody who told her to cut out what she eats by 50%. Okay this will work if your eating 3500 calories a day. This method is also more prone to cheating and ultimatly failing. I'm so happy to see a question like this one...if only all those people repetitivly asking for a quick fix would read this. The American public as a whole needs to become more active, watch less TV, and become less obsessed with losing weight. Maybe if we were't spending all our time on the internet searching for diet pills we would have more time to get active.

      Weed will only be detectable by the normal testing methods for 7 to 10 days, so you should be fine. Just be aware that they are looking into using a new device that checks eye movement and coordination for possible drug use. This machine will catch even marijuana use from 4 to 6 weeks prior to the test. If drug use is suspected, then they can do other testing like the "hair follicle" test which will show any drug use for the past 6 months, for the recreational drugs, to a year for the stronger drugs. They say the hair will hold drug residues for a year or longer. Lots of liquids, vitamin C and exercise will cleanse the body more quickly for a blood or urine test.

  48. QUESTION:
    What are some good drinks for detoxing your system?
    Hi, I'm looking for any good ideas for drinks/liquids that can help you flush your system (to get rid of toxins/drugs etc). Please help! Thanks a lot.

    • ANSWER:
      from a book I read somewhere, having a glass (250-300 ml) of warm water with a squeeze of lemon juice every morning RIGHT after wake up will cleanse and prepare your stomach and body for the day's digesting. To detox the whole system, drink freshly made (in blender, not juicer) mixed fruit juice of your choice(berries, grapes, mango, papaya, pineapple, citrus,anything you like BUT banana) sweetened only with honey (no sugar pls), or you can add a slice of ginger into it before whizzing up the blender if you like. Drink immediately, not later than 20 minutes after making it, or else it'll start losing their vitamnins. You must drink the juice for a whole day (or like what I usually do--three days in a row, once a month). Drink the juice every 2 hrs, starting from 6am to 8pm, and don't forget to keep drinking water as well. Before you go to bed that night, have a big glass of water. You're not allowed to eat anything else but fruits, and drink anything else but juices and water (no tea or coffee for the day!) when you're doing this juice therapy. Good luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    How to not starve yourself on a liquid diet?
    I'm thinking of doing a week of juicing and maybe soup. After this past Thanksgiving I'm needing a detox because of all the rich food, drink and salts. Any healthy ideas for helping the starving feeling? I was thinking raw veggies. Again its just a week of this with some exercise. After the week I am going to maintain the exercise of course and at a greater intensity b/c I won't be on the liquid diet. I don't have a certain amount to lose, I just want to feel better and have more energy.

    • ANSWER:
      i would stay away from any solid foods, as it defeats the purpose of the liquid diet, however there are pills you can find at a health food store that will suppress your appetite, also drink coffee it is also a good appetite suppressant

    This flush is part of the master cleanse lemonade detox fast. Would there be another substitute if it does? Thanks you all in advanced.

    • ANSWER:

  5. QUESTION:
    Is the Lemonade Detox Diet bad for athletes?
    I am an athlete, I play high level volleyball however I'm only practicing twice a week right now. Would starting the lemonade detox diet be a major risk to my health, or would it be fine for now since I'm not practicing too hard yet. I really want to do this detox and loose some weight!! Please help!!

    • ANSWER:
      This diet is not healthy and definitely not healthy for an athlete, most of the weight lost is just water weight along with some muscle and a tiny portion of fat, the water you gain back as soon as you begin to eat normally again and the loss of muscle will make gaining fat on a normal diet easier.

      you won't have the energy to train and the chance is high you will vomit when you drink the salt water each morning.

  7. QUESTION:
    what is the lemonade detox diet?
    Seriously I want to know. I am always eating junk food and while I don't gain weight, I always feel sluggish.

    My friend said i should try the lemonade detox. But she had no idea what it was. She just said her mom does it. So what is it exactly? And how many days do you go on it? And do you just drink the lemonade and NOTHING else?

    • ANSWER:
      It is when all you drink for up to 21 days is a mixture of squeezed lemons, cayenne pepper, grade b maple syrup, and water. Then you also drink salt water to make you poop. It tastes awful and if you are a junk food fan there is no way you'll be able to give up food for 3 weeks. If you want to give it a shot though just google lemonade diet and you can find the exact mixture.

  12. QUESTION:
    Has anyone heard of the lemonade detox diet?
    My aunt is going to go 10 days without any food except for a lemonade concoction of water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maypul syrup. Will this diet have any negative effects on her health? I would be very interested in a scientific answer instead of the answers like "heck yes".

    • ANSWER:
      Fasting is not bad for you. As a matter of fact, it's the best thing you can do to detox your body.

      The lemons give you some essential vits, the maple syrup is giving you the carbs, this means, no starvation mode that is experienced by folks that fast on water only.

      Read this, you should feel better:

      http://mastercleansesecrets.com/book.php?hop=ebookgen&gclid=CI3_pPnLs5kCFQubnAodbUKgiA

      Edit: Took me 2 tries but I lasted 13 days and never felt better, tell your aunt day 4 and all the "I'm hungry" stuff stops.

      Wish her good luck for me

      Edit2: I read that link I gave you and it wasn't what I thought it was, still good but not what I thought.

      Fasting is based on the premises that digestion is the most intensive thing your body does. It must stop, housekeeping, disease fighting, oxidant savaging in order to digest that t-bone you just wolfed down. So much so, that for most Americans the bodies housekeeping chores are at a net loss at the end of most days.....a loosing battle. THIS WAS MY ATTEMPT AT SOME SCIENCE....Cheers

  13. QUESTION:
    Does the Master Cleanse really work and is it safe?
    I am starting the Master Cleanse tomorrow which involves the homemade lemonade and detox system. has anyone tried it? Is it worth it? It seems hard but rewarding. Also, I have dance rehearsals all week so I need to have enough energy to not pass out. Will this be extremely difficult?

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with the last person about waiting. I have just completed it a couple days ago for my 3rd time. I truly do believe the master cleanse works and is safe for most people, people that are generally healthy to begin with. And yes, it's tough.

      From my experience, you will need a good 2 to 2 1/2 hours in the AM after you do the salt water flush to be near a bathroom, trust me on this one! Bowel movements can come out of nowhere! So if you work in the daytime, I would try go in a little late if possible. If you don't do the salt water flush on any day, the morning bathroom runs won't be that bad, but that kind of defeats the purpose.

      As for energy, the first day will be the worst, especially if you regularly drink coffee or regular tea, as you will your body will be going through caffeine withdrawal. You will be tired, and most likely will have a headache for most of the day.

      Day two should be better, but you will still have low energy until about day 4 or 5, until most of the bad stuff has left your body. 1st time doing it, could be up to 7 days until your energy increases.

      Don't forget the cayenne pepper (fresh as you can), this is important.

      The worst part of the cleanse is the salt water flush. If you can deal with that, the rest is a piece of cake, and you also might be dreaming of cake two days in, dreaming of all food, thinking of recipes, basically food will be on your mind constantly.

      Try to stay strong, and you will be glad you accomplished it. Your intestines will thank you for cleaning them out.

      Good luck!

    • ANSWER:

  15. QUESTION:
    What does the lemonade detox diet involve?
    Basically, I want to do the lemonade diet - I think. I have a vague idea of what it involves but I'm unsure about how to make the lemonade. Also can I eat any other foods while I'm on the detox and if so, what are they?
    P.S. I appreciate all the comments warning me about how bad fad diets are. But I'm not doing it for weightloss, I'm thin. I've heard that flushing toxins out of your system has other benefits.

    • ANSWER:
      fad diets. So bad for you. Why don't you just lose weight the healthy way? Eat healthy lots of veggies, lots of water, cut your sugar intake, watch your fat intake! Exercise!! do 3 30 min cardio, and 2 strenght training sessions a week to get your muscles strong. that will boost your metabolism. I know that isn't what you wanted to know but doing this lemonade diet isn't going to work. You might drop some weight (probably water not fat.) but once you get off the diet your body will gain it all back.

    What is the recipe for the lemonade & cayenne pepper detox?
    I'm looking for the lemonade, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup detox recipe.

    Also, is it okay to consume small amounts of protein to stay sustained? Or just best to stay away from all during this. My concern is that I wake up early for work and want to be able to focus and be alert throughout the whole day. Can you work out on this diet or will you not have enough energy?

    • ANSWER:
      PURCHASE INGREDIENTS FOR THE LEMONADE CLEANSING DIET!!

      - Lemons (depending on the time of the year ask friends/family for access to a lemon tree. This will cut costs dramatically. Lemons, however are inexpensive and can be purchased at any grocery chain or discount store) Figure you will need 3-5 lemons per day per individual on the Master Cleanser Diet.

      - Organic Grade B Maple Syrup (Call the store before purchasing!! We went to several different stores before finding it at Trader Joes and there were only 2 left. You will go through this quickly, once again - stock up!)

      - Herbal Tea Laxative, Cayenne Pepper, Uniodized Salt (should be able to purchase at any store, make sure to get caffeine free tea)

      - Purified or Spring Water (if you don't already drink purified water, consider investing in a cheap filter, you can also fill up the gallons for .50 a piece).

      Step 2MAKE YOUR LEMONADE CLEANSING DIET SERVINGS FOR THE ENTIRE DAY!!

      It is recommended that you drink 6-10 servings per day. If you want more calories, drink more servings, if you want a little less drink less, but do your best to stay within the recommended amount.

      The following equals 1 serving of the Master Cleanser Lemonade Diet:

      - 2 tbsp (1 fluid oz) freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice (NOT BOTTLED JUICE)
      - 2 tbsp (1 fluid oz) organic grade b maple syrup
      - 1/10 tsp or more cayenne pepper
      - 1 cup (8 fluid oz) purified or filtered water (NOT fluoridated water)

      Get a large pitcher and mix daily serving of Lemonade Cleanser Diet according to your preferred # of servings. Once again, it is recommended 6-10 servings per day.

      Step 3DRINK THE LEMONADE CLEANSING DIET THROUGHOUT THE DAY!

      Put the master cleansing diet in a thermos/coffee cup/water bottle and carry with you throughout the day. Drink whenever feeling hungry. Make sure to bring a refill for your thermos. You will be amazed how the lemonade cleansing diet completely satisfies your hunger and after the first two days, your cravings as well.

      Look through the resource section for Frequently Asked Questions and forums. Consider buying and reading through the book the diet is based on, The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs.

      Enjoy your cleansed body and your renewed independence from cravings and food.

    Should I still take my thyroid medication if I am trying to do a detox or fast?
    I would like to do the Master Cleanse Lemonade fast to detox my body but I take medication for my Hypothryoid conditon. Should I still take the medication or will my thyroid conditon improve if I dont just from fasting??

    • ANSWER:
      You always need to take your thyroid medication, as you are on it because your thyroid gland isn't producing enough hormone. Without enough thyroid hormone so many symptoms can develop and you'll feel worse.

      I have posted a thyroid website below for you to read up on hypothyroidism.

  21. QUESTION:
    How often can you detox and cleanse your body?
    How often is too often to cleanse and detox your body? I just want to know because I did one about 3 weeks ago and I wanted to know if it's safe to do it now?

    • ANSWER:
      A common misconception is that detoxing or cleansing the body involves restricting your food and basically starving yourself for days on end. Not a very appealing thought, and you can understand why the people who attempt this ill-fated approach often fail and then renounce their new-found drive for a healthy lifestyle!

      A perfect example of a slightly crazy, and most definitely idiotic detox is the 'Lemonade Diet' popularised in the 1990's and somehow still being attempted across America today! This diet involves consuming nothing but homemade lemonade (containing maple syrup!) for anything up to 14 days and beyond, with the mantra - if you feel hungry, just have another glass of lemonade! I'm sure I do not have to explain the dozen flaws in this plan - but let me assure you, a proper detox is about abundance, not starvation.

      To give your body the tools it needs to detoxify, cleanse and regenerate a detox must give the body even more vitamins, minerals and nutrients than normal. This is often achieved through consuming fresh juices, soups and occasional supplements. A bottle of lemonade simply doesn't cut it I am afraid!

      As put perfectly on ivillage 'A detox regime increases your intake of foods and drinks that serve our bodies well as building blocks...(and) provides protective antioxidants and simultaneously cuts out those habits that rob you of nutrients and optimal health.

  25. QUESTION:
    What is a good Detox diet for an ectomorph body type?
    I am 20 years old and have been having digestion problems and a few health problem. Yes, I have seen a doctor about it and everything seems to have rational and easily fixed by medication. It was suggested to me that I do a detox diet just to try to clear out some of the bad stuff in my system. But its hard trying to find a diet I can actually do.

    I am about 5'1" and 105lbs. I have a naturally high metabolism and physically need protein though out the day and sustenance or I become ill, light headed, nauseous and irritable. I want to find a detox diet that won't require me to just drink a veggie/fruit juice. My body can't handle just those in a day.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      If you had a high metabolism, you would have a host of symptoms and be under the care of an endocrinologist. If you're lean, it's your genetics...minimal adipocytes.

      If your doctor suggested the detox diet, you need a new doctor. You have some bad information for a 20 year old. You should get some books at the library and study. Don't try to learn from the internet.

      "Detox" is short for detoxification and detoxification is a natural process involving your liver and kidneys and there is nothing you can do to effect it. It is impossible to detoxify a human once the toxin is in the blood with the possible exception of kidney dialysis, kelation therapy, and other expensive medical modalities. Currently "detox" is a faddist word, relatively meaningless, and is used to express that which the users cannot otherwise express because of ignorance or because the expression would be patently false.

      Detox diets, cleanses, and supplements don't work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don't work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

      Check out these reliable references. Listen to experts, not a random bunch of strangers of unknown credibility in this and other forums. Here's what the experts have to say about cleanses.

      Article excerpt: "Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists"
      Ref: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article784402.ece

      Your body cleanses itself naturally. And cleanses, purges, emetics, enemas, alternative and homeopathic colon cleanses etc. cannot remove fat from your body or make your body lose fat and/or toxins. If fat is your problem, you're eventually going to realize that nothing works except a proper diet for life or surgery. The best diet for all normal adults hasn't changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods.

      Detoxification is a fad and a fantasy only. If you have reason to believe you're toxic, consult with your doctor. Don't waste your time paying attention to advertising hype, naturopathic gurus, homeopathic charlatans, etc. The road to good health is paved with science. If you or someone you love gets deathly ill, you will take them to a place where medical science is practiced. So, where is the sense in abandoning medical science in favor of baseless and unscientific methods of quacks and charlatans.

      Good luck and good health!!

      The concoction is hard to swallow and sort of bringing my stomach content to my mouth, I skipped it and my diet was perfect.

      When in hunger resort to fresh salad and it's okay to add baked potato but not for everyday. Don't overdo this diet though, you should know your limit.

  29. QUESTION:
    what are the side affects of the lemonade diet?
    Im starting the lemonade diet and im kind of nervous. What are the side effects and can you die from it ?

    • ANSWER:
      The lemonade diet is another name for the master cleanse diet.
      You are really just looking at a painful and drawn out way to empty your entire digestive tract.
      The lemon detox/master cleanse diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it? Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system.
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available. The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to convert muscle and even organ tissue first for fuel instead of the stored fat. Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed. The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  30. QUESTION:
    What are some detox diets that aid in weight loss?
    I am considering going on the famous master ("lemonade diet) cleanse, but am nervous because i am a type one diabetic. Are there foods/fruits I can eat in conjuction that won't mess up the entire process? Weight loss is key here...

    • ANSWER:
      hi cassei...

      :)

      Want to lose weight? You can follow nutritionist Jay Robb's (Everydiet.org) Fruit Flush for a healthy three-day detox for diabetics. Throughout day one of the plan, consume a protein shake every two hours (from 8 am until 4 pm) using whey protein. At 6 pm, consume a healthy dinner consisting of chicken breasts (around four ounces), three to six cups of vegetable salad, and a tablespoon of olive oil. On days two and three of the plan, consume fresh fruit every two hours (again, from 8 am to 4 pm) with a healthy dinner consisting of a protein shake, half of an avocado (for healthy fats), and vegetable salad at 6 pm. This plan comports with the principles of diabetic dieting by relegating your overall nutritional intake to healthy, slow-digesting carbs like fruits and vegetables while providing plenty of added nutrition in the form of protein, lean meat and healthy fats. At the end of the three days you will have likely lost a few pounds without diverging too far from your original diabetic diet.

  31. QUESTION:
    If I "accidentally" eat a little something on my lemonade detox will this ruin everything?
    I had a small glass of white wine 1 day and a small cup of coffee w cream/sugar and a taste of chicken soup.... but other than that I SWEAR I have been behaving myself. Did I ruin my detox totally? Will this ruin my results totally?

    • ANSWER:
      nope. on any diet if u do something bad once it doesnt effect results. just dont overdoit

  32. QUESTION:
    "what detox diet is the most effective short term way to lose alot of weight?
    Such as the master Cleanse/lemonade diet, are there any others?

    • ANSWER:
      Lots and lots of raw fruit (fresh if possible)....every other hour, eat an apple/orange/grapes, etc.The more citrus you can eat, the better. Every other hour drink a glass of water..a full 8-10 ounces. For no more than 3 days. (You will need other foods, too) After that eat only fruits and water every day until noon, then eat vegetables until 5-6 p.m. Then a meal is OK. That's what I do. OH, some people use a juicer and just drink their way through the 3 days. I've not had one, so I don't know.

  33. QUESTION:
    How effect is the Lemonade Detox Diet?
    I am already eating right and exercising but I just want to drop a couple of quick pounds by next weekend. So I was thinking of trying this detox diet to flush out my system. What kind of results did you see with this detox? Was it extremely hard or any advice you could give?

    Please people with experience ONLY.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      I know someone who does it twice a year and they lose about a pound a day while on the cleanse and get back about half. The main thing is that it is very boring. Lemonade with maple syrup and pepper-- salt cleanses. You have to get up early for the salt cleanses since you will have to go to the bathroom and you will not want to be on the road when it happens.

      The Master Cleanse Diet has been around for about 40 years and people have gone as long as 60 days on it. A 3-10 day cleanse is typical.

  34. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detox your liver?
    I have been on a bit of a bender lately...way too much drinking. I want to cleanse my body and start the New Year fresh. Can anyone recommend a good detox?

    • ANSWER:
      You can't detox your body. You also will metabolize the alcohol quickly so there's nothing in your liver to detox from your "bender". You have done the damage and it can't be fixed. Just lay off the alcohol for the rest of your life if you want to have a healthy liver at 50.

      "Detox" is short for detoxification and detoxification is a natural process involving your liver and kidneys and there is nothing you can do to effect it. It is impossible to detoxify a human once the toxin is in the blood with the possible exception of kidney dialysis, kelation therapy, and other expensive medical modalities. Currently "detox" is a faddist word, relatively meaningless, and is used to express that which the users cannot otherwise express because of ignorance of because the expression would be patently false.

      Detox diets, cleanses, and supplements don't work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don't work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

      Check out these reliable references. Listen to experts, not a random bunch of strangers of unknown credibility in this and other forums. Here's what the experts have to say about cleanses.

      Article excerpt: "Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists"
      Ref: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article784402.ece

      Your body cleanses itself naturally. And cleanses, purges, emetics, enemas, alternative and homeopathic colon cleanses etc. cannot remove fat from your body or make your body lose fat and/or toxins. If fat is your problem, you're eventually going to realize that nothing works except a proper diet for life or surgery. The best diet for all normal adults hasn't changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods.

      Detoxification is a fad and a fantasy only. If you have reason to believe you're toxic, consult with your doctor. Don't waste your time paying attention to advertising hype, naturopathic gurus, homeopathic charlatans, etc. The road to good health is paved with science. If you or someone you love gets deathly ill, you will take them to a place where medical science is practiced. So, where is the sense in abandoning medical science in favor of baseless and unscientific methods of quacks and charlatans.

      Good luck and good health!!

  35. QUESTION:
    Can you do the Lemonade MasterCleanse while breastfeeding?
    I had my baby a little over 6 months ago and I only breastfeed once a day. I did the lemonade diet for 5 days before I got pregnant and loss 12 pounds. Well, I want to flatten my belly and do the cleanse again. Is it safe?

    • ANSWER:
      It is not generally advisable unless the baby is over year old. The reason is that the toxins that are released into your bloodstream generally also appear in breastmilk.

      http://constantstateofflux.wordpress.com/2007/07/20/cleansing-whilst-breastfeeding/
      Yes it is really a problem when you are breastfeeding to do ANY cleansing or toxic removal, because of the fact that the baby may ingest the toxins. I tried ThreeLac whilst I fed my baby, as I read it was safe to use, but had no real results with it, though I only tried it for two months before being given Candaway by my dentist, I am not sure if you can buy this outside of the UK.

      http://www.janethull.com/newsletter/0906/q_a_with_dr_hull_7.php
      La Leche League International is the best source for information on breastfeeding. They have a complete list of medications and reactions, byproducts, etc as well as what forms these chemicals take in the breast milk, Hales Guide to Medications and Mother's Milk. LLL leaders are well educated in these issues and can give you some guidance.

      I typically advise moms not to do a stringent detox during breastfeeding (and pregnancy) because the toxins will excrete into the milk. The best time to detox is before pregnancy and after breastfeeding.

      A mild cleanse, maintaining your detoxification program during pregnancy or breastfeeding, and a diet-based detox are generally safe because they remove acute toxins slowly and the baby doesn't get as an acute an exposure.

      Babies are exposed to ALL the toxins a mother has ingested, including all the chemicals a mother eats. One example: pregnant and nursing mothers are advised to eat even less tuna than the general population due to the mercury content in canned tuna products.

      As long as you practice a healthy, whole foods diet and avoid any further toxins, I believe breastfeeding is the best way to go. For now, I suggest taking natural daily supplements, eating healthy foods and saving the intense detox for later, when you are no longer breastfeeding.

  36. QUESTION:
    Does the Lemonade Detox cleansing diet work?
    anyone try it?
    I'm planning on trying it...the ingredients are specific and it combines with fasting.

    • ANSWER:
      Dont do it!!!
      Its just another fad diet that makes you lose water weight and muscle giving you false sense of success, slows down your metabolism and makes huge contribution to yo-yo cycle.
      You will gain it all and more back when start eating normal again.

  37. QUESTION:
    What are some things you like to do to detox?
    I was hoping to get some suggestions of simple and mild things that you do to detox. I've been so busy these past few weeks that I haven't been making the best food choices and totally skipped out on exercise. I'm getting back on track again but I would just like to do a little more.

    I'd prefer not to do some box set supplement type of thing. I'm more looking for herbs, juices, teas, certain foods, etc. that are good for cleansing.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      This book I was reading talks about how fasting is a great way to detox. A few good fast include the raw fast, where you just eat raw vegetables for a few days to a week or however long you like. There's also a juice fast where you make your own fresh juice and that's all you have. It said the best way to detox your body though was just to do a fast where you have nothing but water and that helps you the most.

      Although if you wanted an alternative to those. I was reading up on something called the lemonade diet. I really want to try it but haven't gotten around to it. Here's a link of someone's personal day to day blog while on it. It looks like a good way to detoxify your body and lose a little bit of weight.

  38. QUESTION:
    What is the best method of detoxification besides the Lemonade/Cayenne Pepper thing?
    I want to detox. I have heard of detoxifying foods. I am considering a liquid detox, however, but the lemonade/cayenne pepper thing is just too difficult. I am trying to Jumpstart my weight loss.

    • ANSWER:
      I think the best method of detoxification is to wait and let your liver and kidneys break down and remove any toxins. That's what they're there for.

  39. QUESTION:
    What is the best method to cleanse your body?
    My girlfriend went on some lemonade cleansing diet, she couldn't eat anything so she stopped after 5 days. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with a good cleansing program, preferably one where you are allowed to eat something.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,
      I detox with Isagenix. A bit of $$$, but so worth it. You are spending less on groceries and eating out during the cleanse too.
      They have a 9-day program, where the average loss is 7lbs. I lost 12lbs on my first 9 day.
      Best of luck!
      PS
      You do eat food on this program.

  40. QUESTION:
    What are good products to detoxify my body?
    I want my body to go though detox. Not because i need to pass a drug screen, but just because i want to be healthier and get the toxins out of my body. Do you know any good products?

    • ANSWER:
      There's always the lemonade diet, I've never done it but its suppose to work really well. (It's not actually a diet, all the weight you might lose will most likely come back)

  41. QUESTION:
    Should a 16 year old go on the Lemonade Master Cleanser Diet?
    It would be for about 4 days, rather than the 14 days suggested. The diet detoxifies the body and also helps to lose weight fast. The diet consists of drinking only lemonade (water, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and grade B maple syrup) for those four days, nothing else, except water and tea.

    • ANSWER:
      We are not 'dirty' inside, nor are we full of toxins.
      NUTRITION experts have warned about the potential dangers of detox diets. We already have nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.
      “Your body does a perfectly good job of getting rid of toxins on its own,” says Dr. Nasir Moloo, a gastroenterologist with Capitol Gastroenterology Consultants Medical Group in Sacramento, Calif. “There’s no evidence that these types of diets are necessary or helpful.”

      Re lemonade diet...
      Downsides:
      Liquid bowel movements are a messy side effect. Going without food, and with only a minimal amount of nutrients (given the drink’s ingredients) can add unnecessary stress on the body.

  42. QUESTION:
    Can I lose weight by going on a lemonade diet?
    Hi I wanna lose a stone in a month and I'm allready on a diet and I've been losing a bit of weight. I was thinkin of doing a lemonade diet 3 or 4 days a week by drinking diet lemonade for breakfast and linch then a small plate of veggies 4 dinner. Will this work?

    • ANSWER:
      “A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?” Albert Einstein

      The Einstein Diet...

      Lemon water, with the lemons coming from freshly squeezed lemons, which will help detox the body of excess fat and toxins.

      A variety of raw high carb/low fat fruit (do not juice or blend, because chewing properly is important for digestion due to amylase).

      Must have green grapes and ambrosia apples 24/7.

      Other Information...

      Vegetables/legumes are 2nd best, but may be needed due to finance or type 1 diabetes, in which case, I'd suggest getting a variety of salad recipes.

      Sprouted grains are 3rd best, but may be needed due to finance.

      *No meat and no cheese is a must, but if a person has trouble with not eating meat: shrimp/prawns, lobster & crab are the easiest meats to digest.

      *Proper sleep, fresh air 24/7, eating sufficient carbs, and cardio (at least walking) is a must.

    why do you need to drink salt water every morning and tea in the evening for the lemonade diet?
    what does it do? and do you have to do it or can u just do the lemonade diet part?

      The best way to detox is to get hold of a liver. Oh, you have one? Great. Now just stand there and let it detoxify your body. Partner it with some kidneys and you've got the most efficient body detox system known to man. And you don't even have to wait for it to come in the mail, or give a credit card number!

  45. QUESTION:
    How do you detox completely?
    I weigh 100 pounds. I smoked like four days ago. I'm enlisting to the Marines pretty soon and I'm going to have to take a physical sometime next week. I want to know if there is any way I could detox completely. And if those detox things you buy that you drink would actually work? any remedies of any sort? Please. Anything would help.

    • ANSWER:
      You can do the drug test whenever you want, you have to be honest with them that you smoked and you need time to clear your system and they'll understaand, but they're gonna remind you that you cannot smoke in the marine corps. Drink lots of water and sugar free lemonade and exercise and run making sure you are sweating. Take multi vitamins twice a day and eat lots of fiber and non fatty foods, fat will slow your detox. GNC sells detox solutions which work really well but like I said you will need more than a week. Give it 2.5-3 weeks of doing what I said even with a detox drink and you will be fine. Get ready to train harder than you ever have in your life, this will be easy in comparison to what you will endure over the 92 days of bootcamp....EASY!!!!!

    What is it exactly?

    • ANSWER:
      Solid food is any food that isn't liquid. (Like a hamburger, for example, is a solid food). Basically, you can only drink liquids.

  47. QUESTION:
    Can you still take your vitamins while on the Master Cleanse?
    I want to detox my body to help me with quitting smoking and I take vitamins daily. Also, I can't take time off from work to do this but I want to get healthy. My job is very physical, I work in a bakery doing prep work and have to lift up to 40lbs.
    I smoke cigs and eat too much candy :(
    Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      While on the master cleanse, you should drop all supplements and medications if at all possible. Medications are processed by the liver and so are any foreign substances that could potentially be in your supplements. I guess you need to decide in your case if you really can't do without a particular supplement.

      My job isn't very physical, but I did feel more energetic while on the cleanse. I actually felt so good I continued for 21 days instead of 10. I have heard others who do have physical jobs say they did fine. But I think it is a personal matter. Definitely bring your jug of lemonade with you wherever you go so you don't feel hungry.

      The first three days are the hardest, and after that it gets easier. You can experience mild cleansing symptoms such as a headache as toxins are released from the body. Your body has a lot more energy to put toward cleansing since you are not eating solid food, so just expect that and see it as a good sign.

      I think it is great you are doing the master cleanse. For me, the master cleanse was life changing in terms of weight loss that lasted and better eating habits, better discipline even.

      Be sure you follow Stanley Burrough's original plan in his book, The Master Cleanser.

      Hope you get amazing results.

    How long can you detox for?
    I plan on doing a detox and was thinking of eating only soup (eg. Cabbage soup). Is it safe to detox with soup only for lets say 7 days? What about longer than that?

    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      you should try the lemon detox. You drink 60mL or 6 to 8 cups of freshly made lemonade (i used lemon concentrate/lemon juice). The lemonade detox consists of 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/3 of a cup agave nectar (an organic plant sweetner), 4 cups water, and 1/10 of teaspoon of curry powder. You drink this throughout the day for 10 days. You also drink warm salt water at night or in the morning and one cup laxative tea (i like smooth move from traditional medicine). Cabbage soup is fine but the lemon detox works better.

Best Colon Cleansers

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is a good colon cleanser that will not cause diarrhea?
    I know that colon cleansers are controversial, but I would like to try it. However, I can't afford to take days off because of rushing to the bathroom continuously. Please advise.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi LuLu, I personally, do not like colon cleansers. I believe they can get your electrolytes out of balance. If you use something like MiraLax, recommended by doctors, I don't see a reason why a colon cleanser is necessary. Hope this has helped.

  2. QUESTION:
    How effective are colon cleansers for losing weight?
    I already eat practically a perfect diet, consisting of mainly fruits, veggies, nuts, beans, whole grains, and probiotics. I also exersise, however, I'm still not as thin as I'd like to be. Would purchasing a quality colon cleanser from Whole Foods do the trick? I also want to start drinking prune juice regularly. How effective are colon cleansers? What was your experience with them?

    • ANSWER:
      Not.
      A study of the living human anatomy reveals that the colon is at no time dirty or clogged. Colon cleansing is known to disrupt the balance between natural enzymes and bacteria in the digestive tract.

      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.

    Do colon cleansers really help you get skinnier?
    I already eat practically a perfect diet, consisting of mainly fruits, veggies, nuts, beans, whole grains, and probiotics. I also exercise, however, I'm still not as thin as I'd like to be. Would purchasing a quality colon cleanser from Whole Foods do the trick? I also want to start drinking prune juice regularly. How effective are colon cleansers? What was your experience with them?

    • ANSWER:
      I've never used a colon cleanser but with your diet I can't imagine that there would be anything there for it to cleanse.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is it unsafe to take two colon cleansers in a month?
    I bought the 3 week long colon cleanser by GNC and I don't think it worked. I didn't lose a single pound and my bowel movements didn't look any different and were not more often, it didn't feel like anything changed. My skin didn't clear up, my stomach did not become visibly smaller, and I didn't feel like I had more energy. I want to take another colon cleanser but don't know if it's safe. Can someone help?

    • ANSWER:
      Try it again -- if you had no adverse reaction to it the first time. If you still get no results, I'd write to GNC and express your dissatisfaction for this product. Most likely, they'll either refund your money or let you get other products of the same value for free.

      By the way, you can cleanse your colon with a two-day water fast too. Eat nothing, just drink water for a couple of days.

      Best of luck to you.

      P.S. Keep your receipts.

  5. QUESTION:
    How long does it for colon cleansers to take effect?
    how lon does it take for colon cleansers t have an effect?

    • ANSWER:
      As most colon cleansers contain laxatives it will depend on how much laxative they contain and how much food is in your digestive tract.

      Colon cleansers are superfluous anyhow, the colon is self cleansing, is never dirty and cleansers upset the delicate balance of bacteria and enzymes in the digestive tract.

      You lose water weight - soon replaced - and electrolytes eg sodium and potassium.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the Best Colon Cleanser That I Can Buy Online?
    There are so many colon cleanser products out there online and many of them are questionable in their actual quality. I would like to know where I can find a good quality colon cleanser online that actually works like it says it will - and will do it safely. Plus, it would be a big bonus if its a good deal as well, as cash is tight at the moment. Thanks!

    P.S.: Any personal experience you've had with the product would be welcome in your answers!

    • ANSWER:
      Hello Brent, I was doing the same research as you few months back. There are so many products out there it is so hard to pick out a good one. I always looking for the 100% natural system which doesn't give you any bad side effects. After all the research that I did, I choose a system called Bowtrol Colon Cleansing. It's been FDA approved and it has 100% natural ingredients. And one other reason I choose them is because they also give a 90 days return policy.

      I have been on it about a month now, and I feel great, and even lost 10 lbs without change in diet. no side effect. And I feel having more energy everyday. I highly recommend it, as it worked great for me. If you go to their website now, they are giving away free samples. Which is great bonus for you...;-)

  7. QUESTION:
    What is the best and most natural colon cleanser?
    There are way too many colon clensers on the market. What is the best and most natural colon cleanser out there? Has anyone had any previous experience with one? How much weight did you lose?

    • ANSWER:
      You are right! The market is flooded with them but unfortunately most of them are terrible. In fact, you will be lucky to find a natural cleanser. I personally used Purity 12 and lost almost 9 pounds of weight. I was surprised because I tried quite a few cleansers previously and none of them worked. I actually recommended it to one of my work mates who was struggling to lose a few pounds and it worked a treat for him as well. I think they have a free trial offer at the moment here http://rds.yahoo.com/**http%3a//tinyurl.com/qfwfw5 so you can actually try it out for free for 30 days and see how much weight you lose.

  8. QUESTION:
    What medications should not be taken while using the colon cleanser?
    Also how long should the colon cleanser be used for and how often should it be used?

    • ANSWER:
      My friend did the colon cleaner and she passed a gelatinous mass... Scary, but not cancer.

      I would call your doctor to find out. Anything with the colon is scary territory - you don't want to mess around with that crap!

  10. QUESTION:
    When is the best time to take super colon cleanser?
    Just wondering does anyone know the best time to take super colon cleanser? I usually take it about 30 minutes before eating. is that the best time or should I take after I eat?

    • ANSWER:
      I usually take mine on a empty stomach, early in the morning - and preferably on a day when I can stay at home. Most colon cleansers are very harsh so you want to be as kind and easy on your body as possible. Drinks lots of water to flush toxins out - staying hydrated is always a good idea.

      In general, eating a high fiber diet is good for maintaining a happy colon. Fiber, in combination with water and healthy fruits and veggies should keep you healthy and to the point where you won't need to take a colon cleaner that often.

  11. QUESTION:
    What is the diffrence between a colon cleanser and a laxative?
    are they pretty much the same cause if they are, I wouldn't need a colon cleanser. I would like to know what is the best colon cleanser on the market? I was going to go with hydroxcut something like that.

    • ANSWER:
      Laxative's make you poop
      A Cleanse helps empty the intestines as well. A natural cleanse is better. Plus you should prep your body before hand with a natural food diet for 3-7 days prior. A cleanse can make you feel good and bad.
      Try a Colonic for the best results.

  12. QUESTION:
    Why does my heart hurt when I start drinking colon cleanser?
    Yes, weird. But I'm trying to lose weight, so I've been putting this wheat stuff or "colon cleanser" into my drinks, but when I start drinking it, I get this weird pain in my chest.

    What's causing that?

    And NO I'm not choking on it.

    It's a pain in my chest cavity.

    HELP!!! D:

    • ANSWER:
      Sweetie....our colons cleanse themselves. All you are doing is dehydrating yourself. "Colon-cleansing" just means that you are having the runs due to something that you're putting into your system. You will probably lose a few pounds, then gain it right back as soon as your system gets its normal hydration back. It is dangerous, because you are depleting the electrolytes that your body needs for healthy heart-function.

  13. QUESTION:
    what are the best colon cleansers to help lose 10-15 pounds?
    I have been looking up information on colon cleansers, but I am not sure if they work. Has anyone ever tried a colon cleanse that helped you lose 10-15 pounds?

    • ANSWER:
      Your colon stays clean with a healthy high fiber diet. It doesn't need cleansing.
      As for the "bad build up" promoted by homeopathic practitioners medically licensed gastroenterologists repeatedly state they rarely come across patients with any type of residue along the intestinal walls. The ones they do find are suffering from a specific disease or other severe symptom causing the digestive system to function improperly.
      The best way to clean your system is to stop putting toxins in. The largest source is our modern diet of processed and refined foods loaded with preservatives, additives, and concentrates. These throw off the normal functions of the entire body.
      The best way to "cleanse and detox" is to reduce transit time. The amount of time it takes for food to exit the body. The average adult has a transit time of 50-60 hours. So something they ate for breakfast two days ago is still in their system. Yuck!
      This leads to a condition called auto toxicity where the digestive system is working slow enough for toxins to be reabsorbed through the large intestine.
      A high fiber diet can cut transit time to 24-30 hours. Search high fiber foods and focus on eating lots of those.

  14. QUESTION:
    What are the risks of Acai Berry and the Colon Cleanser?
    I've heard a lot about the acai berry supplements and the colon cleanser helping out so many people with their weight. I want to know what certain risks there are to trying it out. Also, if you are under the age of 18, can you still use the combination of both or is it very risky? Does this really work?

    • ANSWER:
      These products are a waste of money and don't work. Please don't fall for all the spam adverts you see.

      There are a lot of scams around - people have lost a lot of money ordering these on line.

      No pill, potion or supplement will help. All you need to lose weight is a good healthy diet and exercise - it takes time and motivation :)

Would purchasing a quality colon cleanser from Whole Foods do the trick? I also want to start drinking prune juice regularly. How effective are colon cleansers? What was your experience with them?

    • ANSWER:
      They just empty your gut which fills right back up. They don't make you lose any actual body fat. You could eat a can of raw uncooked kraut and it would clean you out in about an hour.

  16. QUESTION:
    I am looking for a good colon cleanser can anyone tell me about anyone good ones?
    I want to use a colon cleanser before starting my diet can anyone give me any that's good and not to harsh?

    • ANSWER:
      Exercise.  To keep your colon healthy, you need to exercise regularly.  You've heard it said over and over again that habitual physical exercise helps to reduce your chances of all types of cancer – even colon cancer. 

      But did you know that regular exercise can help your colon perform better on a daily basis in a very noticeable way.  It's true.  Regular physical activity can help you avoid constipation.

      Other natural ways to keep your colon health include eating foods high in fiber.  On the whole, those individuals who eat a fiber-rich diet are less likely to become constipated.  And constipation may ultimately lead to even greater health risks.  Eating foods high in fats, such as cheeses, eggs and meats can also trigger chronic constipation.

      Fiber is that portion of grains and fruits and vegetables that is not digested by your system.  Soluble fiber can dissolve relatively easily in water and eventually transforms itself into a soft, gel-like texture in the intestines.  Insoluble fiber, on the other hand, passes through the intestines nearly unchanged.  The bulk and the soft texture of fiber help to prevent the hard, dry stools associated with constipation.

      The average American eats between 5 and 14 grams of fiber daily.  This is far less than the 20 to 36 grams recommended by the American Dietetic Association.  As a nation, we eat too much in the way of processed foods which have no natural fiber.

      Don't ignore that need to go!  Quite frankly, too many of us simply ignore the initial need to go to the restroom.  We get involved with a project at work, we're busy around the home or we simply procrastinate.  This not only eventually causes chronic constipation, but leads to continued poor colon health.

      Drink more! While drinking more water may not actually cure constipation, many people find that water add bulk to the stools which makes them a little easier to pass.  If you are bothered with chronic constipation, try drinking liquids every day.  The best liquids are water and fruit juices.  Try to avoid coffee, tea and soda.  The caffeine content in these just makes your condition worse, acting as diuretics.  The caffeine takes liquid out of your body. Alcohol also acts as a diuretic.

      Don't touch those laxatives!  Initially, it may seem like the right thing to do, but it may lead to a larger problem. Some people actually become dependent on laxatives.  The body then grows reliant on these in order to have a bowel movement.

      Consider an enema.  There may come a time, especially so if you've ignored your health for any length of time, that you may want to jumpstart your healing and put yourself on the fast track to health.  The best way to "start anew" in a sense is through an enema. 

      An enema flushes much of the old, dry, fecal build up on the walls and pockets of the colon very quickly.  This allows your system to eliminate the accumulation of toxins fast.  If you think you may want to take this route to colon health – and improve your overall well being – visit your natural health care practitioner.  If he can't help you, he'll direct you to a professional who can.

    Has anyone used the colon cleansers you can get at a health food store? Which is the best one to use?
    Need to cleanse colon, but don't want to use a laxative. Need to know what is the best colon cleanser you can get.

    • ANSWER:
      Why do you need to cleanse your colon? There are several products on the market that claim colon health but since these are over the counter thing no clinical studies have been done. Every manufacturer can "hire" a panel of experts to claim their product as a winner.
      If you suspect something is wrong, go to a doctor and get tested. A colonoscopy procedure is very easy and comfortable. The only discomfort is the laxative that you will have to drink before the procedure but this only for less then a day so you will be able to do it.

    • ANSWER:
      If you eat a healthy diet that is high in natural fiber from fresh fruits, veggies, and whole grains along with exercise and low in processed foods, your body doesn't need help cleaning the colon.

    I can't afford a colon cleanser, but i still want to do this so i can lose weight. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      That's not going to help you lose weight.

      I got a colonic once and it was just basically an enema. No weight loss there. No difference in anything except being voraciously hungry and weak for one day.

      Eat things like pancakes and syrup in the morning, mangoes between meals, and take Metamucil or fiber powder mixed with orange juice. Not all on day one, but know there are ways to get your body to drop what it's holding faster.

      Also, DO YOGA FOR ABS! I went six times in a day after the third session (TMI? yes. honest? you bet). And I did it at home with a DVD.

    • ANSWER:
      here are some suggestions for natural remedies besides fiber

      http://ezinearticles.com/?Constipation---Natural-Remedies-Besides-Fiber&id=2574745

      the great herbalist, Dr John R Christopher, certainly an expert on the bowel and constipation, said that diarrhea (non virus related) can be a sign of severe constipation and should be treated without delay

      http://www.herballegacy.com/Diarrhea.html

      here is what he says about constipation

      http://www.herballegacy.com/Constipation.html

      it is hard to find his lower bowel formula using organic herbs unless you make it yourself, but his student, Dr Richard Schulze, sells an excellent bowel cleanser..called intestinal 1 and intestinal #2. 97% of the people need to take both according to directions, while 3% (the people with irritable bowel syndrome and chrohns (which you do not seem to fit) take only the intestinal cleanse #2

      it is sold at herbdoc.com

      I strongly feel the advice to eat more dairy was very bad advice. See for yourself by a simple Google search ( i very if ever criticize someone's advise on here but feel I must in this instance)

      http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=ytff1-&p=dairy%20and%20constipation&ei=UTF-8&type=

      Cheese and dairy are among the most mucus forming foods there are. Dr Christopher, the father of modern herbology, said using the mucusless diet will eventually remove all mucoid plague and is recommended

  29. QUESTION:
    Is it ok for anyone to use a colon cleanser?
    I don't need to lose weight or anything, but I don't exactly eat healthy, and I saw on the news, that the colon cleanser is good for not just men, but also women, and that it cleans gunk out and helps prevent colon cancer. Is it only for people trying to avoid colon cancer or who want to lose weight, or can someone who wants to be healthy use it. I just don't want to take anything that will hurt me if I don't need it.

    • ANSWER:
      I personally don't believe that these cleaners remove "gunk" from your colon and I'll tell you why. I have had a colonoscopy (where doctors run a camera on a tube through your colon looking for tumors or polyps).To prepare for that you are given a cleansing with laxatives and enemas and put on a restricted diet for a couple of days before. If there is a lot of gunk left over, the doctors would not be able to see the wall of the colon to detect these tumors or polyps. For years people survived without the colon cleansers and were perfectly healthy. A lot of our health problems stem from processed foods and lack of exercise.

    Does Acai Berry combined with a Colon Cleanser really work?
    I have heard this combo of Acai Berry combined with a Colon Cleanser really works for weight loss, with exercise and healthy eating habits...I decided to buy a bottle of Acai Trim, which contains Acai Berry and Green Tea Extract today. I did not buy a Colon Cleanser though. Anyone know anything about this?
    I bought the Acai Trim at Walmart.

    • ANSWER:
      Acai Berry is good for your immune, digestive system,your skin and your hair It helps in the aging process but it does not help you lose weight. Green tea can help you lose weight but it depends for everyone. The colon cleanse is used to clean your body of toxin, this helps the weight loss product to work more effectively. You need to find what's right for your body. I have tried many of the weight loss supplement out there. I went to the gym 5 times a week They did not work for me. I am now on a natural diet and this is working for me. For the first time in years I actually find something that works. Maybe you will too. Good luck

  32. QUESTION:
    Do u really benefit from colon cleansers or body cleansers?
    I have seen and heard about many colon cleansers from companies like herbalife or GNC. I am wondering though if it does improve your body or if it is just a scam. Can anyone help?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, if you look at the ingredients, you can make your own cleansing formula yourself.
      They put some Vitamins, fibers from various sources. I can't say colon cleansing is a scam,for I never tried it myself and I don't believe in it. They place stiff price tags in the name of the colon cleansing, IMO.
      Best approach is to add more fibers in your diet. Food form of fibers are the best and safe. Let the food work naturally to cleanse our clogged up colon.

  35. QUESTION:
    Could you outline some 100% natural colon cleansers that have no side effects?
    I just want to detox naturally but i have read some adverse feedback against some colon cleansers.

    • ANSWER:
      "Colon Cleansers" have been debunked as a myth. The icky evacuation they cause, claimed to be the "gunk lining your colon" is actually caused by the so called "cure" and is not in you.

      Your body "detoxes" itself constantly. Drinking lots of water will do NOTHING to speed the process, despite what some fools believe.

      http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/gastro.html

      To detox naturally, start with a magnesium citrate laxitive to help clear and serious blockages. Then, just follow this up with a healthy diet with plenty of fiber. Eat rasin bran, cheerios, oatmeal and other whole grain cereals for breakfast.
      Make sure lunch and dinner are balanced meals. snack on fruits and veggies. Drink fruit juices and teas and avoid soda and coffee. Alcohol should be avoided while detoxing. Taking a good multi-vitamin helps.

      I've used cleansing teas and things will come out of your body. Do a tea cleanse once a week, it's very gentle, you aren't on the toilet all day. There is no need to buy fancy and/or expensive preparations. Detox tea availible on your supermarket shelf at a reasonable price. It contains basically the same stuff you'd get from a chinese herbalist or holistic practitioner.

      Good Luck :-)

      If you follow the next steps you’ll lose weight in no time:

      - take AcaiBurn 2x per day (approximately 30 to 60 minutes before your morning and afternoon meals)
      - go for an easy 30-45 minute walk (or swim, or cycle) three times a week
      - don’t eat after 7:30pm (or 4 hours before you go to sleep)
      - drink 8 glasses of water a day

      that’s it

    How effective are colon cleansers?
    Which type of colon cleansers are most effective? And do you poop alot that day when you take it?
    Whats the best time for a person to take it?

    Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      It most certainly depends upon why you are doing it. There are all sorts of detox BS remedies out there but do the research first. Why are you doing it? How long will you do it? And if you are truly trying to clean your colon and/or small bowel you absolutely crap like crazy. Not sure how old you are but if you have a colonoscopy the doc wants to see the walls of the colon and into the small bowel a ways totally free of stool so depending on what in there it all must come out. Do some reading and answer some of the questions for yourself and your needs.

  39. QUESTION:
    Wife and I are looking for colon cleanser, any suggestions?
    Are there any personal recommendations for a good colon cleanser that you've actually tried and saw real results.

    • ANSWER:
      Personally, I would try out Bowtrol. It is all natural and the ingredients include Turkey Rhubarb, herbs such as alos, bentonite clay, senna, peppermint, as well as a proprietary blend of other herbs. Many of these ingredients have been used for hundreds of years to combat the problems associated with waste build up in the colon.

      Since they are all natural they can be taken as a dietary supplement for life. On the other hand if you are seeking a shorter term, the product can produce results in as little as two weeks.

      I found that I had the best results when I ate more fibers in my diet. This can be achieved by adding foods such as legumes, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains while eliminating heavily processed and fast food.

      They have a free trial, so test it out and see if it benefits you guys like it did me. Also try Yerba Mate, I love that tea.

  41. QUESTION:
    Whats the best colon cleanser that really works?
    I have bad IBS and i thought it would be good for me to do a colon cleanser i have done one before but it did nothing. has anyone had any luck with one?

    • ANSWER:
      A diet of at least 75% raw foods (fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds. juices) will clean out the colon and can be invaluable for long term management of IBS.

      An elimination diet is also helpful:
      Eliminate dairy, citrus, soy, corn, gluten, caffeine, alcohol and smoking. Avoid for a period of time of about two to three weeks. Then re-introduce one new food every couple of days. See if symptoms return or there is a negative reaction when re-introducing a food.

      Peppermint tea offers some relief of symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and spasms.

  43. QUESTION:
    What is the best most effective colon cleanse weight loss supplement ?
    I always hear of new colon cleansers everywhere I turn, and I want to know where I a could order a free smaple of a colon cleanser online without wasting my time. Also, how are you supposed to use colon cleanser as a weight loss supplement?

    • ANSWER:
      You will definitely lose weight. But it is only the weight of undigested food and waste, not any stored body fat. And it will just be replaced.
      Gastroenterologists repeatedly state this "mucoid plague" promoted by non medical practitioners does not exist. They have yet to find any during a colonoscopy.
      The best way to cleanse and detox is to stop eating and drinking processed and refined foods.
      Get hold of a liver. Oh, you have one? Great.
      Now just stand there and let it detoxify your body. Partner it with some kidneys and you've got the most efficient body cleanse and detox system known to man.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients. The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, kidneys, urine, and feces.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal processed and refined foods. They are loaded with additives, concentrates, and preservatives mostly in added sugars and salts.
      Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, lean meat cuts, fresh fish, beans, peas, brown rice, raw nuts, and barley keep a system as healthy and as clean as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet of whole fresh foods works every time. Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both normal internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      The digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system health.
      Spend your money in the produce department to speed your cleanse.
      Good luck and good health.

  44. QUESTION:
    what is the best colon cleanser free trial?
    there are so many colon cleanser free trial around.which is the best?

    • ANSWER:
      Save your money, forget the colon cleansers. Undigested food does NOT build up in your colon, no matter what anybody tells you. I've had a colonoscopy (in my 60s) and watched the pictures as the little camera went through my colon. Nothing in there except shiny pink colon walls. No gunk whatsoever, no undigested steaks from 1990. The whole colon cleanse thing is a scam.

I would also like to expel any and all buildup in my colon as well.

  49. QUESTION:
    Should I try one of them colon cleansers?
    I got an email for this amazing colon cleanser product. It says the average person has like 5 to 10 pounds of caca stuck in the poopshoot and that it can cause all sorts of calamadies. Has anyone here ever tried one before? What sort of precautions should one take before engaging in such a massive bowl movement to prevent toilet malfuntion and cleanup?

    • ANSWER:
      Note to self: If you use one:

      1. Have excellent plumbing. Preferably plumbing that will pull a watermelon down on one flush.

      2. Keep a toilet snake handy for chopping up the beast(s)

      3. Have a 3-pack of good toilet paper ready (you'll need it)

      4. Never be more than 13 steps away from the crapper. 14 steps may be one to many, and one mess that will make you vomit

      5. Have an entire day devoted to it the process. You'll go 10-15 times, even when you think your flushed out, there will be more. Go out on a date or run to the store and have an accident, death will look better than the humiliation.

      You will feel better afterward, for sure. Skip the preparation and you'll be sorry.
