Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is a good and cheap liver flush?
    I would like to find a liver flush that is easy to use. Where can I find one?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as a safe and approved liver flush product.
      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.
      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.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies.
      A healthy 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.

  2. QUESTION:
    Liver and Gallbladder flush:What time of the next day should the stones be passed?
    Has anybody done the grapefruit and olive oil liver flush? I did it last night (followed by two cups of Epsom Salt this morning at 6 and 8 am). I have had many bowl movements from morning and still no stones passed (it is noon now). Some thing wrong?When are they supposed to pass? I also don't feel tired or nausea.

    • ANSWER:
      You should have noticed some, especially little white balls of chaff, but it's not wrong. Either you're healthy or very clogged up. You may need to do a detox diet for a week or so before doing another flush - a juice fast is the most effective; fresh, not from a carton - and then repeat the flush every two or three weeks. Detoxing is a process, not a one-off quick fix.

      I didn't feel tired, nauseous or much different the next day and I've done 5 of these now, so don't worry too much about "should bes".

  3. QUESTION:
    Do those liver flush treatments work?
    Do those liver flush treatments work for gallstones or it's bogus?

    • ANSWER:
      The liver isn't to be aggravated. Stick with
      real doctors.
      The stones are really hard and not to be
      dissolved. Is flushing something taken by
      mouth ? Sounds phony alright.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is the diffference between lemonade diet and a liver flush.?
    I have tried the liver flush ,also can honey be used in place of maple syrup

    • ANSWER:
      Lemonade?? Do you mean lemon water diet?
      If you do, a lemon water diet flushes all the toxins from your body, liver, kidneys etc...
      Lemon water is just that, freshly squeezed lemon and water.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there a really good product for a thorough liver and blood detox/cleanse?
    I need a good liver flush. I just started taking Milk Thistle and would like to keep taking it as a protector, but I want to find a detoxification product that I can take for a few days that will really flush out the system.

    • ANSWER:
      There are some good herbal combos that work for that. I have one that has dandelion and milk thistle both in it. And it works for me well.
      Go to your local health food store and examine the herbs section. There are regualr brands of herbs which make many combos of formulas for specific needs. Just look for one that says liver cleanse, and examine ingredients. You then have to learn to dose yourself. There is a suggested dosage, but sometimes, you have to adapt to take less or more as is needed.

      When I first started taking the Liver cleanse herbs, I would feel really miserable. Just an incredibly terrible feeling. It actually took me a few times before I realized I was feeling terrible when I took the liver cleanse, beacause it was working!! then after few years of occasional use, I actually could feel great when taking it. Unfortunately, I'm back to feeling terrible when taking it.
      But expect some physical response while taking it. Try to take it when you're not going to be doing lots emotionally or physically. I also try to cut back on eating lots, just gentle foods, so you don't stress out the body. After all, the liver is what helps keep the body cleaned, so you're cleaning the cleaner. You don't want to freak out the body too much.

      I don't do it for long time. I might take couple pills in morning, maybe at night but usually not for more than a day's effort. it's not like it's a colon cleanse where you've got several yards of cleansing to do.
      Try it every couple weeks if you feel you're in need of good liver cleansing. But I wouldn't do it more than that, in fact probably just once monthly if you wanted a regular schedule.

      Check with the salespeople in your local health food store, they can easily steer you towards good products for your effort.

  6. QUESTION:
    Is there a really good product for a thorough liver and blood detox/cleanse?
    I need a good liver flush. I just started taking Milk Thistle and would like to keep taking it as a protector, but I want to find a detoxification product that I can take for a few days that will really flush out the system.

    • ANSWER:
      No, there are no good products that is going to do anything to help your liver by "cleansing" it. People will believe anything anyone tells them and this stuff is just a bunch of nonsense. Milk Thistle research has shown it does have a good effect on the liver, but the cleansing stuff is wasting your money.

  7. QUESTION:
    Does a Liver Flush remove Xanax/Benzo toxins?
    I am coming off my medication and noticed that when I do a Liver Flush a lot of ******* nasty stuff is coming out which im hoping is for the better. I am hoping I am releasing my tolerance to Benzos and they are being cleansed. Is it true that A - Benzos get stuck/stored in the liver and B - Flushing will help me?

    • ANSWER:

  8. QUESTION:
    Will the sea salt water flush be good enough to cleanse the colon?
    Will this work as good as taking some supplements and enemas? I want to do a liver flush but I heard that you would have to do a colon cleanse first, so i was wondering will the sea salt flush be good enough prior to doing the liver flush.

    • ANSWER:
      Tootsie,

      I'm afraid not. Sea salt is good for cleansing your sinuses, but not effective as a colon cleanse.

      Why? Because many toxins and waste that build up in your colon will just not be affected by salt water passing through the lower and upper intestines and colon. You need a formula that contains the effective natural herbs and fiber that all work together in removing the fecal matter and toxins that are trapped in your colon.

      I recommend looking at the colon cleanse products review and finding one that's right for you.

  9. QUESTION:
    can i do a liver flush having high blood pressure?
    WITH THE LIVER FLUSH YOU NEED TO DRINK EPSOM SALT.IS THIS SAFE ?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, the liver flush is safe with high blood pressure. Follow the amounts and timing of the Epsom salt, and you will be fine. Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate, so the risk is not too much salt but too much magnesium if you are supplementing - very rare risk. You can read more about the liver flush and Espom salt on Curezone. If you are taking blood pressure medicine or any medicines when you do the flush, they may get in the way of passing stones.

  10. QUESTION:
    Has anyone with Type 2 Diabetes did a sucessful liver/gallbladder flush?
    I just found out that I'm a diabetic type 2. Am taking metformin once a day. I have gallstones and what to know if I can do a liver flush to try and remove them. I'd rather keep my gallbladder if I can. Appreciate any information......

    • ANSWER:
      Quack doctors in Mexico will offer you the world for your money. They will not be able to give you better prognosis or outcome.

      Some "trendy" but useless treatments include filtering your blood, making your blood alkaline and insulin treatment etc.

  11. QUESTION:
    Did a colon and liver cleanse but my medication seems to not work?

I took my daily dosage yesterday and did not feel anything with the constant....you can fill in the blanks going to the toilet. Should I stop taking the meds for a day or two?

      I think it's just as normal as girls just not as common mabey.

  14. QUESTION:
    Detox body just by changing diet to get rid off acne?
    I read about liver flushes somewhere on the internet. By doing a step by step procedure with items like epsom salt, grape fruit, olive oil, etc, you can cleanse your body. I am very active in sports, so I can't fast. Can you cleanse your body just by eating clean foods (natural unrefined foods) ?

    • ANSWER:
      Those detox flushes will not cure acne, nor will changing your diet. Diet has been shown to have little or no effect on acne.

      Beware of using any products for acne unless they have been prescribed or recommended by your doctor. People make all kinds of suggestions about the best thing to do to cure acne. Some cures I’ve heard include putting oatmeal, honey, lemon juice, tea tree oil, cucumber, vinegar, milk of magnesia or toothpaste on your face. Practically every cosmetics company and company that makes personal care products makes something that is a “sure cure” for acne. If we think about this, and use some common sense, we have to come to the conclusion that there is no quick or easy cure for acne, because if there was it would be well known and doctors would be telling everyone about it.

      Numerous companies make a lot of money persuading people to buy products that at worst will make the acne worse, and at best may help some people a little. Often fewer products are better. People often make their acne much worse by using too many products. There really is no quick fix for acne. Don’t spend a lot of money on products just because their ads say that they will cure acne. Your doctor is the best person to ask for help, and he or she may recommend some prescription medication or non-prescription treatment that may be suitable for you..

      There are some very simple and basic things you can do that cost nothing. Keep your face or any other area affected by acne very clean. Any mild antibacterial soap will help with that. Rinse the area well to remove all soap residue. Drink plenty of water – it really does help to clear up acne. Eat a nutritious diet and get enough sleep. A healthy life style will make a difference. Try to reduce the stress in your life – stress contributes to acne, so also probably the more you worry about the acne and focus on it, the worse it will be.

      Probably the most useful and effective things you can do are to apply hot compresses to pustules and cysts and never to pick or squeeze pimples. Playing with or popping pimples, no matter how careful and clean you are, nearly always makes bumps stay redder and bumpier longer.

      Here are a few informative links with additional ideas about preventing and treating acne.

  15. QUESTION:
    I have had a face rash for three months. Can I do a liver detox and also take Benadryl?
    I think the culprit is Scabies cream, which I used a few months ago. I just started coffee enemas. Can I take Benadryl after the enema? I want my liver to flush, and don't want to make it work harder by giving it Benadryl. Sometimes the itch is really bad though, and I need relief.

    • ANSWER:
      What do you think will occur if you're taking benadryl? Your liver has to work hard to get this stuff sooner or later eliminated, so you won't detox your liver while taking this stuff.
      So no, you can't do it at the same time..

  16. QUESTION:
    Have you done a liver flush, and if so what was the result? Did your health and/or energy improve?
    I'm on my 3rd flush (every other week) and more certain than ever that this protocol is for real. More energy, less acne, better digestion. Anyone else have a similar experience?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. I am sure many others experience the same. I myself take apple cider vinegar and olive oil regularly and one of its functions is to tone and strengthen the liver.

      There are other herbs, vegetables and fruits used to get similar effect.

  17. QUESTION:
    Do the benefits of accutane outweigh the risks?
    I'm a 17 year old male with mild acne and some red marks. In high school my condition made it very difficult to meet girls due to my self confidence and my appearence. I would really like to make a change in this so I can pick up the pace and have women be more receptive to me and finally lose my virginity. This might seem a little selfish, but I'm being perfectly honest with my desires. I have tried literally everything for my condition (antibiotics, topicals, vitamins/supplements, liver flush, colon cleansing, you name it)_and it seems that accutane is my last resort. I am considering this mainly for the reason that it's very awkward to explain why I haven't had a girlfriend yet and I'd really like to function like a normal person in society for once in my life. Can anyone offer me any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Accutane is a newer drug. It just isn't worth the risk to be a guinea pig to make the drug companies rich. I know you are only 17, and this seems like a "last hope', but it really isn't. You have a whole life ahead of you. You will mature and be able to grow that "shabby" bearded look that is so debonair in the near future. You know the "grunge" look of not shaving for about 12 hours. Girls love that! and they will flock to be your girlfriend.

      No matter how uncomfortable you feel about your skin today, tomorrow is another day. And when you are a little older you might choose to have your face lasered to completely remove the acne scaring. But you have to be alive to do that. Don't let acne dictate your life. Look forward, make big goals and live to see them come to pass. The risks are not worth any potential benefits in choosing non lifesaving drugs.

  18. QUESTION:
    Do the benefits of accutane outweigh the risks?
    I'm a 17 year old male with mild acne and some red marks. In high school my condition made it very difficult to meet girls due to my self confidence and my appearence.

I am considering this mainly for the reason that it's very awkward to explain why I haven't had a girlfriend yet and I'd really like to function like a normal person in society for once in my life. Can anyone offer me any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      I think Accutane is great. I was on it for about a year when I was 16 years old and it worked wonders! It was even more of a big deal for me because I'm a female. I had to take a pregnancy test every month because of the horrible birth defects it can cause.

      I also tried EVERYTHING and nothing helped! I tried antibiotics, topicals, injections (ouch!), and nothing worked!

      I think the benefits definitely outweighed the risks (at least for me anyway). The only bad thing I can say about the drug was it made me pretty depressed, but as soon as I quit taking it I went back to my old self. Some people have been reported to attempt suicide and some people have actually committed suicide while on Accutane. It's a VERY powerful drug!

      I'm starting to get acne again and have an appointment to start another Accutane treatment in August. It just recently started coming back again after being off the medication for 5 years (I'm 21 now). If you do get on Accutane you might need to repeat it in a few years because it can come back for some people.

      Good luck!

  19. QUESTION:
    If you have stones in the gallbladder, kidneys, and/or the liver is it necessary to flush them out?
    Do they make you feel 'toxic' if you have them? I have heard of doing a liver/ gallbladder/ kidney flush where you drink olive oil, epsom salts, and grapefruit juice to flush them out. Somehow I don't want to do this, is it bad to have them and not do anything?

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of liver stones, but I do know that gall stones and kidney stones can be very dangerous for your health as they can seriously injure the organs - especially if left untreated and allowed to enlarge.

      My mother had trouble with kidney stones before she passed away. They were extremely painful and she was hospitalized for them roughly 12 times over her life.

      The links below will give you more information about gallstones, kidney stones, and the different liver disorders:

  20. QUESTION:
    Please share your experiences with liver flush?
    I was recommended liver flush, the one where you take Epsom salts, and then olive oil mixed with grapefruit juice. You are supossed to induce bile flow and thus cleanse the liver. Has anyone done it? How does it feel? How nauseous do you get during the process? Is it painful? How long do you stay ill?

    • ANSWER:
      Gooood grief but that sounds awful! I've not heard of it but am curious for any and all answers anyone might have for you on this subject.

  21. QUESTION:
    What's the best at-home liver flush?
    I've been reading a lot about liver flushes/cleanses, and my doctor suggested I give it a try. So, I figured I'd give it a shot. There are SO MANY different options though, I don't know what's best.

    I'm looking to start either today or in the morning.......and hopefully do the 2-3 day flush type thing. I think the most common and successful ones consist of:

    *Filtered water
    *Lemon
    *Apple Juice
    *ACV
    *Olive oil

    ....So, have you tried a liver flush at home? What worked for you? What kind of success did you have? I'm looking for recipes, instructions, testimonials....whatever I can get.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe you should think about changing your doctor if they are suggesting that.
      It is a quack treatment and has no medical value.

  22. QUESTION:
    How can I do I liver cleanse without the apple/olive oil mix?
    I want to do a liver cleanse but I don't want to do that extreme apple/olive oil lemon juice mixture.

    Is there a way that I can do it with eating certain foods a certain way, slowly over time?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, there are many other ways to heal your liver, such as herbs like milk thistle or specially formulated liver supplements. Livatrex can help you painlessly pass stones like a liver flush with olive oil and lemon juice, but less dramatic.

      Also there is a liver flush that uses eggs, limes, and oil but is really mild. Some people have success with that.

      Changing your diet will help - healthy fats, cruciferous vegetables, whole grains, limiting sugar, eliminating bad fats. Karen Hurd has a protocol of eating legumes to decongest the liver. Just eating a lot of apples will help, one or two daily. The tart ones are best like Jonathan or Granny Smith.

      Daily lemon water also cleanses the liver and kidneys and is easy to add on to whatever you decide.

  23. QUESTION:
    What is the best liver detox for someone with HCV x 20 years?
    I'd like to know if there's a way to rid my liver of the effects of alcohol when I go out and have a few drinks.

    • ANSWER:
      The medi-nerds are out in force I see here promoting their ignorance of detoxing. "Beware of detox scams?" Beware of ANTI-DETOX people. A liver gallbladder flush works wonders for the body and I have lots of people that I have helped with doing this type of cleanse. To say you can't detox the body is so ridiculous and only showing great ignorance.

      John Hopkins researchers found intrahepatic gallstones in livers that are causing lots of problems for people. Typical medical diagnostics do not show these stones because they look like ordinary bile when using these tests. Autopsies were used to examine livers, etc. in the studies done by John Hopkins researchers. To remove these stones and gallstones is a very popular DETOXING flush that does remove the stones. I'm always anxious to hear from patients I put on this form of detoxing because the amount of stones that come out and the sizes are always shocking to these people. What I find is that many of these people take jars of their stones to show their doctors that lied to them, telling them detoxing does not work.

      It takes several flushes to totally clean these organs, but the results are incredible. The skin becomes vibrant, the liver starts cleansing the blood better, producing better bile and all the health benefits are marvelous.

      To prevent the problems with alcohol on the liver, you can take digestive enzymes that include all the pancreatic enzymes before drinking. You will not get a hangover the next day. Also, go to the health food store and purchase some prickly pear herbs and take those before going out.

      A little alcohol will not hurt the average person, but excessive drinking will damage the liver and cause a huge build up of the intrahepatic gallstones that crate fatty livers.

      The milk thistle herb will only have a very minor effect on the health of the liver, but it certainly won't hurt it either. Just don't expect great results from taking it.

      good luck to you

  24. QUESTION:
    Where will my liver gallstones come out of when i do a liver cleanse?
    I have done a colon cleanse, currently on a parasite kill, then i will jump to a liver cleanse by Dr. Hulda Clark Ph.D., N.D.
    I have heard that it hurts when guys urine gallstones, can liver stones be eliminated by the urine or by stole?

    • ANSWER:
      No, you cannot flush gallstones at all. Those are ingredients for a salad dressing.

      If it were that easy, don't you believe that American insurance companies would force patients to use that inexpensive cure instead of going through costly medical surgery? Guess what: there are no peer-reviewed medical studies to show the efficacy of gallstone flushing. It doesn't work!

      Cholecystectomy and ERCP are the only cures for gallstones. They are relatively safe and effective where called for. Some people can survive their entire lives with gallstones. It all depends upon your individual situation and diet.

      See a real medical professional for proper advice.

      I am a survivor of many medical procedures, including cholecycstectomy (gallbladder removal) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography or ERCP for short.

  26. QUESTION:
    How fast does The Fat Flush Program work?
    I'm thinking of starting the Fat Flush Program by Ann Louise Gittleman. How fast does it work? Is it easy to stick to and keep the weight off? And am I fine just doing my own exercise at the gym or should I get the Fat Flush Fitness Plan book also? Any tips? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The thing that makes Gittlemans fat flush different than the average "diet" is the liver cleansing part. (although it is also a low cal/carb plan) The liver is key to fat metabolism, and Gittleman proposes detoxing the liver for optimum function. You basically start each day with a glass of lemon water, then sip on a mixture of cranberry juice/water with a dash of cayenne and cinnamon throughout the day. The small amount of cayenne revs the metabolism, the cinnamon is proven to help regulate insulin, and the cranberry water is cleansing to the entire digestive system. I have read about the Fat Flush but never tried it, however it does sound medically sound and seem to make sense!

  27. QUESTION:
    what is inside the beer that makes kills your liver?
    What is the ingredient in beer that kills you (liver) and how do you get drunk? What inside the beer kills you or damages your liver and why? Please give me a paragraph or send me a site with the information.

    What gets you intoxicated?

    • ANSWER:
      Alcohol is hard for the liver to flush out, so the alcohol enters the body faster than it leaves.

      It gets absorbed into your blood stream and the oxygen in your red blood cells become suffocated with the alcohol. Thus, not enough oxygen reaches your brain, thuuuus, DRUNK!

      That's why people get dizzy, can't think properly, can't operate machinery, and pass out---because not enough oxygen is delivered to the brain.

  28. QUESTION:
    Do you know of a way to flush your liver without expensive suppliments?
    I have heard there is an inexpensive way to flush your liver using common household ingredients like lemon juice and olive oil. Do you know how to do it, or a website about it?
    No, I hardly ever drink. Every few months, I'll have a wine cooler. I have heard it's good to flush your liver for general health.

    • ANSWER:
      drink plenty of water, its that simple

  29. QUESTION:
    What is the diet for liver infected patients?
    Please let me know the diet to be taken by liver infected patients. After infection getting cured what kind of precautions to be taken in diet.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) or primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) you may need to change your diet as the way you digest fats may be altered. In order to digest fat we need bile. This is a yellowish acid made in the liver and stored in a pear-shaped bag called the gallbladder. It is squirted into the small intestine where it acts as a detergent, breaking fat into tiny droplets so it can be absorbed by the body.
      With PBC and PSC the flow of bile into the gut may be reduced, particularly if you are jaundiced, so you may find you cannot tolerate the same amount of fat as normal. In this situation you develop a type of diarrhoea, known as steatorrhoea, which causes bulky, pale faeces/stools that are difficult to flush away. It can cause nausea and a sick, bloated feeling.
      If this happens, you may find that eating less fat in the diet will help to reduce the problems and symptoms of this fatty diarrhoea. However, fat is essential – it contains the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as essential fatty acids – and should not be cut out of your diet completely without proper advice from a dietician. People vary in the amount of fat they can tolerate so this does not mean you will necessarily need to eat a strict, low-fat diet. Most people find they are able to work out how much fat they can take by trial and error by reducing amounts of the higher fat foods.
      Improvement in bowel habit shows that your body is tolerating the amount of fat you are eating. Stools will become less frequent, darker and easier to flush away. If you are reducing fat in your diet and do not need to lose weight, top up calories with snacks between meals, for example, toast, crackers, crumpets or tea-cakes. Your dietician can help you with this.
      Cutting down on fat
      If you want to cut down on the fat you eat you need to avoid ‘hidden’ fats as well as the obvious ones you can see in meat and greasy foods. The list below gives examples of high-fat foods and ideas for alternatives.
      Butter, margarine, lard, dripping – try using low fat spreads.
      Cream and full-cream milk – substitute half-fat versions. There is as much calcium (needed for healthy bones) in half-fat or skimmed as there is in full-cream milk.
      Cheese – you may be able to tolerate small amounts of normal cheese, or try lower-fat hard cheese. Try reduced-fat spreads and cottage cheese.
      All kinds of cooking oil including olive oil, sunflower and vegetable oil – use these sparingly.
      Fatty meats, such as duck and belly pork – eat more fish, poultry, lean red meat, beans and eggs.
      Meat products such as sausages and pies – you may be able to eat small amounts of these.
      Chips, crisps and nuts – try oven-chips instead.
      Biscuits, cakes and pastry – try low-fat alternatives such as teacakes, scones and low-fat cakes or biscuits.
      Many processed foods are high in fat – for example pizza, lasagne, ready-made curry or other dishes. Eat only small amounts or use a low-fat version.
      Cooking with less fat
      The list below gives some ideas on how to reduce the amount of fat you use in cooking.
      Grill, bake, boil, steam or casserole meals instead of frying.
      Add flavour with fresh herbs, spices, lemon juice and mustard. Curry powder and hot spices should be avoided as they may make symptoms worse.
      Trim visible fat off meat and remove the skin from poultry.
      Skim fat off the surface of soups and casseroles.
      If you are cutting down the fat in your diet you should try to eat extra carbohydrate to make up any shortfall in energy. This means more starch and sugar – bread and honey, for example. Take advice from a dietician to make sure you are getting enough calories, protein and vitamins. Some people may also need monthly injections of fat-soluble vitamins.
      Coping with acidity
      Some people with PBC may experience an unpleasant acid taste in the mouth or they may get heartburn – a severe burning sensation in the chest. Stomach acids escaping into your food pipe (oesophagus) are the usual cause of this discomfort. If this happens to you, then try eating little and often to reduce stomach acid. It is a good idea to get into the habit of carrying food around with you, in case you need to eat. Foods that contain carbohydrates – such as crackers, plain biscuits or breadsticks – are the best. If symptoms persist try:
      avoiding big meals at night
      taking an antacid before bed and after meals
      raising the head of your bed by four or five inches
      Fatty Liver
      Fatty liver is a condition in which too much fat builds up in the liver. You are more at risk of this if you tend to put on weight around your middle – ‘apple-shaped’ as opposed to ‘pear-shaped’. The fat stored in the liver is just the same as that under the skin. So, if you cut down on fatty foods and lose weight you will also lose fat from the liver. For the majority of people in the UK, the root causes of becoming overweight are down to:
      eating too much, especially too much fatt

  32. QUESTION:
    Should a skinny person go on a fast or liver cleanse diet?
    I'm currently on a liver cleanse diet to hopefully remove toxins from my body but the problem is I am skinny. I lose weight easily and by removing many foods from my diet, I feel like I will lose a lot of weight. Should I even be on this diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
      There is no "build up" of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
      Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with "mucoid plaque", we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
      We "cleanse and detox" 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.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      A high fiber diet works every time.
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.

  33. QUESTION:
    How much water do I need to drink before my system is flushed?
    I worded the question a little incorrectly. I'm on probation and I know all about the length of time for pot and alcohol and whatnot. Just curious as to how much water needs to be consumed to flush your system. (Better way to put that: how many times do I need to empty my bladder to get alcohol out?)

    • ANSWER:
      Drinking plenty of water is good anytime. If you're talking about alcohol, urinating extra isn't going go affect the process. The liver burns up the alcohol, generating body heat. It does so at a rate of one drink per hour.

  34. QUESTION:
    How can I improve my liver function?
    I think I may have a sluggish/poorly functioning liver, because I have acne, I am fatigued a lot, I have digestion problems, I don't tolerate fatty foods well, I am very sensitive to caffeine, I get headaches for unexplainable reasons, excessive body odor even though I shower every morning and wear deodorant, which all of those I have read are symptoms of a sluggish liver.

    What can I do to improve my liver function?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you definitely have a very sluggish, slow liver. Our livers are the work horses of our bodies. I had breast cancer a couple of years ago, and when you take chemotherapy, it damages the liver to a certain extent. My naturopathic doctor told me that People/Me should clean out our Livers 2 (twice) a year. In the spring, so that we are healthy throughout the summer months, and then in the fall in October so we are as healthy as possible before the winter months come. There are many natural supplements at Health food stores & Drug stores. One that is very good is called Liver Flush, and it helps to detoxify the liver while promoting liver Tissue regeneration. There is also a supplement called Milk Thistle & the active ingredient in it is called Silymarin and this supplement also helps to regenerate new Liver cells within a month. When you take these supplements you only need to take them for One Month. This is all the time it takes to regenerate new Liver cells. So try to do this in April and October of each year and you will feel much better. You will have more energy, your acne will get better, you will Not have as many headaches. For your digestion problems, you should buy/get a bottle of Digestive enzymes and take 2 capusules before each meal. It really does help to digest your meals. As we get older our bodies do not make as many enzymes and it is much harder to digest all the food we eat. Salads/leafy greens, fruits and vegetables have tons of natural enzymes, but you did not mention if you eat alot of salads, or fruits or vegetables to get the enzymes naturally.

  35. QUESTION:
    Will drinking a lot of water and apple juice flush your liver?
    I dont really want to do the flush I read about with the olive oil and grapefruit is there a simpler way? Do I need to do this if I dont have a galbladder?

    • ANSWER:
      Water and apple juice will be good for you generally but your liver does not process liquids - your kidneys do. Your liver deals more with foods and toxins within foods and drinks. The liver is incredible - it cleans and repairs itself much more quickly than any other organ - you can survive with just a quarter of it and even if you have nearly killed it it will usually repair itself given time and less toxins. Most nutritionists now do not think it is necessary to try flushing the liver - if you want to give it a rest avoid unnecessary medication, alcohol, caffeine, preservatives and processed foods for a week - it will love you!

  36. QUESTION:
    How much water does I take to flush out the bad stuff from an energy drink from your system.?
    I have recenly stopped drinking Monster energy drinks because of what I read on the Internet about the junk they can leave in your liver. I was wondering how much water would it take to clean the junk out of my system and is any water better than another at doing this?

    • ANSWER:
      Water doesn't flush toxins like that, and water is water - no kind is better or worse.

      Energy drinks do not "leave junk in your liver". The big story was about COLA - drinks like Pepsi - which can prevent the absorption of potassium if taken in enormous amounts (over two gallons a day). This had nothing to do with the liver, though.

      Your liver is not full of toxins that need to be flushed. That's quackery spread by evil conmen who want to charge you hundreds of dollars for quack remedies full of dangerous third-world medicines and sawdust.

      Enjoy your energy drinks in moderation and also enjoy plain tap water, filtered or unfiltered. Don't believe people who lie about "toxins" and "cleansing" in order to empty your wallet.

  37. QUESTION:
    WHAT ARE ALL THE SYMPTOMS OF LIVER DISEASE ?
    Hi, I am curious to know every and all symptoms of liver disease? I know that there are a few types of liver diseases and illnesses that also occur when it comes to your liver. I also would like to know are there different stages liver disease, if so what are they?

    • ANSWER:
      The external signs include a coated tongue, bad breath, itchy skin, excessive sweating, offensive body odor, dark circles under the eyes, red swollen and itchy eyes, acne rosacea, brownish spots and blemishes on the skin, flushed facial appearance or excessive facial blood vessels.

      Other symptoms include jaundice, (skin, nails and eyes appear yellowish) dark urine, pale stool, bone loss, easy bleeding, itching, small, spider-like blood vessels visible in the skin, enlarged spleen, fluid in the abdominal cavity, chills, pain from the biliary tract or pancreas, and an enlarged gallbladder.

  38. QUESTION:
    How long do you have to fast for the toxins to be flushed out?
    I'm juice fasting.

    I take 1 multivitamin daily, and I squeeze my own oranges. How long must I do this for, to flush out my toxins?

    • ANSWER:
      Here's the deal - there are no "toxins" in your body unless you've recently been exposed to asbestos or something. That's something that the people who created fad diets made up to get you to buy their products. Your digestive system and your liver/kidneys are designed to remove everything from your body that shouldn't be there.

      There is no healthy benefit to juice fasting. The best way to be healthy is to eat a low-calorie (get at least 1,500 a day for women), low-fat diet, to give your body the nutrition it needs.

  39. QUESTION:
    Can gallbladder issues cause liver and lung lesions?
    My friend is having gallbladder problems and it will have to be removed. She has already had an ultrasound and it showed that she also had lesions on her liver and one lung. Now she is having a ct scan to see what the lesions are exactly. Could a malfunctioning gallbladder cause these lesions?

    • ANSWER:
      99% of ALL gallbladder removals are unnecessary and doctors should be ashamed of themselves for recommending these before removing the stones in a flush! The flush does work and I see it all the time. Removing body parts and not fixing the root cause of a problem is NOT good science.

      Bile is made in the liver and some is sent to the gallbladder for storage to be used later. The liver can and does often contain intrahepatic gallstones that do NOT show up on CT scans, ultrasounds, etc. Most doctors are not even aware they exist, but John Hopkin's research has done extensive work on this issue and found these liver stones are causing many health problems, including so called "fatty liver."

      Removing gallstones is a straight forward process and is done all the time. Surgery is a barbaric act that should be the absolute last resort and only in a life threatening situation. When the gallbladder is removed, the patient is then sentenced for a life of bad fat digestion and the root cause of the problem that caused the gallbladder issue is still there! Removing the gallbladder is treating a symptom, but not addressing the cause. That is NOT good science.

      Most likely this person has very bad digestion and has not addressed that problem. The lung problem is just further indication of this person being very toxic and treating this with drugs is not going to give long term resolution, just some pain relief, etc.

      good luck

  40. QUESTION:
    Can anyone provide me simple and effective colon & liver cleanse recipe please?
    Hi there,
    I am thinking to do a liver cleanse 1st time in my 24 years of my life.After reading a lot of articles,I have learnt that it it is ideal to perform a colon cleanse before doing a liver cleanse.I am hoping that it will be help me in lose weight and also help me with my acne problems.I would really appreciate it if anyone have a simple and effective homemade recipe.Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      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!
      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 added sugar and salt.
      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 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?
      Spend your money in the produce department to speed your detox.
      A healthy diet will also help the acne.
      Good luck and good health.

  41. QUESTION:
    what is the differance between niacinamide and flush free niacin?
    I've searched the web, however there's nothing on comparing niacinamide and flush free niacin.

    • ANSWER:
      Mike is actually describing inositol hexaniacinate - a DIFFERENT form of flush free niacin. But aside from that, both posters are on the right track.

      Niacinamide IS a "flush free" formulation.

      The therapeutic differences among the forms are most relevant as they apply to cholesterol:
      - niacinamide has no significant impact on cholesterol levels
      - the jury is still out with respect to inositol hexaniacinate regarding cholesterol. (ie: conflicting science has not yet been resolved.)
      - niacin (nicotinic acid) WILL lower cholesterol levels.

      It's worthy of note that niacin will also falsely elevate liver enzymes on LFTs. Discontinue B3 for 5 days prior to testing.

  42. QUESTION:
    How to cleanse the liver and/or Pancreas?
    Whats a good natural remedy to cleanse the liver and pancreas?

    • ANSWER:
      This page outlines the basic Liver Cleansing. This section contains eight pages of details related to the Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse. We hope you find this information useful.
      It is quite impossible to achieve complete health without having a clean body. If you want to build health and sustain it, the body must be made able to feed itself and remove its own wastes. This starts with a liver cleanse. When the liver is functioning it will clean the body at the cellular level provided that one eats good foods on a regular basis. At this point the food itself becomes a constant remedy. Eliminating the need for excessive supplementation.
      The Basic Ingredients needed for a successful Liver Gallbladder Cleanse or Flush:

      2-4 quarts of Organic Apple Juice
      6-12 fresh Organic Lemons
      A 16 ounce bottle of Extra virgin Olive oil, or Walnut oil which is much more palatable and just as effective.
      1 bottle of Digestorum or enough Paracelsus Elixir on hand to last for two or more weeks.

    How do you flush your liver out to make it healthy??
    I drank way too much a few days ago, and want to rejuvinate my body again into a more healthy life style and make sure that my poor liver is taken better care of. How does one do that?

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing I can tell you is stop putting toxins into your system. Eat a good diet with a lot of fruit,veggies etc. (basic 4) and drink a lot of water. The liver is a filter. If you give it nothing to filter out (so to speak) it will be healthy. The liver is the only organ in your body that can regenerate itself. You should be fine.

  45. QUESTION:
    what is post cholecystecotomy and borderline pancreatitis?
    Had gallbladder removed and now suffering post cholecystecotomy, also blood test came back,borderline pancreatitis? whats the best diet to stop this and heal the body,is their any natural reversal and cure for this condition?? what about liver flush and diet?,want to heal this condidtion ASAP??

    • ANSWER:
      Borderline pancreatitis means that there may be some blockage of the ducts that is causing the enzymes to be activated inside the pancreas instead of in the intestines. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW A PANCREATITIS DIET. This will give your pancreas the best possible chance to heal. First, look through some of my old posts. I only really answer pancreatitis posts so it should be easy to find one that details the food aspect. Then you need to get over the counter digestive enzymes and acid suppressors. SInce your pancreatitis is borderline, it should heal pretty quickly. If you don't follow my instructions, it may get a lot worse. I have done hundreds of hours of research on pancreatitis. I have had great success with my daughters strict pancreatitis diet. She has been hospitalized nine times with pancreatitis in the first two years of her life. She has gone a year now without any attacks because of the diet and medication that she is on. If your symptoms get worse, go to your doctor or the hospital asap.

      BTW, ERCP's are more invasive than an EUS. An ERCP may be necessary if they need to remove stones, but to do an ERCP without cause, is ill advised. Most post ERCP patients experience an acute pancreatitis attack, so like I said, don't do it unless you have to. An EUS is an endoscopic ultrasound. They put a tube down your throat and take ultrasound images which have proven to be as accurate as an ERCP image.

  46. QUESTION:
    How to flush out medicines from the body?
    How do you flush out heavy medication from the body after stopping it .?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many detoxing procedures at different levels of intensity. Drinking lots of water is good as long as you follow a good hydration process that includes getting electrolytes, etc. The average person needs to be drinking more water than they typically do as a general rule.

      Take your total body weight and divide by 2. That number is the amount of water in ounces that you need to drink each and everyday. Along with that, you should consume 1/4 teaspoon of "air dried sea salt" in conjunction with each quart of water you drink. This puts the electrolytes in your body that will give you proper hydration. The typical white table salt you buy in stores like the Morton Salt, for instance, is terrible for you and has loads of chemicals added. Avoid that junk. If you drink ANY diuretic drinks like, sodas, coffee, tea, alcohol, commercially prepared fruit drinks, energy drinks, etc., these all dehydrate you and you will need to add more water to the total to compensate for the water loss due to these diuretic drinks. Take the total ounces of the diuretic drinks and multiply by 1.5 and add that total to the original total to come up with the proper amount of water you need to drink each day.

      The next thing to realize is your body stores toxins in fat tissue and this includes medications. Also POISON INJECTIONS into muscle tissue does not go away. All POISON INJECTIONS leave residues of that in your connective tissues. Those poisons are affecting your body's ability to have good energy flows throughout. This is called an interference field and these need to be remediated or you will carry those toxins to your grave. The two typical ways to handle these toxins is to use either mud packing or essential oils; both are very effective and testable to know the toxins are gone and energy pathways are opened. Chiropractic adjustments are essential in all this as well. Many nerves are inhibited and many organs of the body become insufficient as a result of poor nerve subluxation(s).

      All medications damage the body on some level. You are correct in wanting to get rid of those toxins as best you can. The liver cleans about 3 pints of blood per minute and if your liver is not functioning well, it affects the body's ability to clean the blood efficiently, so a healthy liver is an absolute must and cleaning the liver & gallbladder with flushes and coffee enemas are very important things to consider. John Hopkin's medical research teams did a lot of study in regard to the liver and found that fatty liver's are very common in Americans due to large consumptions of high fructose corn syrup and alcohol; both of which are processed in the liver the same way. Dried bile is a very big problem causing the liver to become insufficient and if you will notice, many medications say "Check the liver" before taking the medications. The damage of those medications is extensive and a lot of emphasis on the liver needs to happen when getting those medications out of the body.

      good luck to you

    I know that cholesterol is make in the liverand I've done some research and It looks like over 50 years of abuse my liver and maybe colon need to be cleaned out. Any way this can be done ?

    • ANSWER:
      Get cranberry concentrate at the health food store. One pint will make 2 gallons with water. Drink 8 ounces before every meal and between meals. This will flush out your kidneys and should be a benefit to your liver.

      No Junk foods or sodas or coffee or alcohol. Drink lots of water and plenty of green vegetables to get a lot of fiber. Oatmeal for breakfast each morning will help bring your cholesterol down also.

      Get a 1/2 gallon or a full gallon of Prune Juice and drink 8 oz before bed at night. This will flush your colon out daily.

      This comes from a book "THE FAT FLUSH PLAN". Eat fish, skinless chicken breasts, no pork, no beef, no butter, plenty of vegetables and fruits. No dairy products. The fats from animal products are the bad fats that contribute to the high cholesterol.

      Good Luck.

  2. QUESTION:
    In Chinese medicine, explain the relationship of metal to wood in the five elements?
    Five elements control cycle (system of checks and balances, each exerting control over another) and associated meridians chart show Metal (large intestine & lung) going to Wood (gall bladder to liver. What is the explanation for this relationship?

    • ANSWER:
      According to "The Yellow Emperor's Manual of Internal Medicine", the five musical tones correspond to the five internal organs--Gong‑spleen, Shang‑lung, Jiao‑liver, Yu‑kidney, and Zhi‑heart. Sound waves, known as mechanical waves, serve as an electrical medium, stimulating the organs in the body through acupuncture points. Music, therefore, enhances circulation of the blood, balances the energy systems and restores the health of the body.

      "Cultivate Dantian (the "field of medicine" area below the navel), cleanse the six organs, it can turn rotten into prosperity.¨ What is meant by this is that, if one can place his/her body and mind in this cleansing state during Qi Gong practice, one will arrive at a yin-yang harmony, with meridians free of blockages, and a strengthened immune system. For someone with an illness, this is the point in the self-healing process where "bad elements" are dispelled.

  4. QUESTION:
    How can my wife ease her liver pain?
    My wife has high cholesterol. She developed gallstones in 2011 and had to have her gall bladder removed. Since then, she periodically develops pain in her liver. I think it has something to due with high levels of bile in the liver blocking a duct. She normally just deals with it until the pain goes away, but she is in pain until it does and it incapacitates her somewhat. I know what to do to avoid it from happening. But once it does, what can she do to make it go away quickly?

    • ANSWER:
      I am so sorry to hear about your wife's continued pain. It is actually pretty common to have pain after gallbladder removal, which is very discouraging. I don't know why doctors don't make that more clear!

      Has she tried liver cleanses or other liver supplements? These are painless ways to naturally pass or dissolve the stones, which also will lower her cholesterol.

      Her pain is likely caused by blocked ducts, as you suspect, from thickened bile and remaining stones. The good news is she can definitely clear the stones/sludge and lower her cholesterol naturally.

      For the pain she is experiencing, she might try a natural remedy like a tablespoon Epsom salt mixed with a little water -OR- a tablespoon of vinegar mixed with water. The pain should subside within the hour.

      Hope she feels better soon.

  5. QUESTION:
    what are the symptons of gall stones?
    I had an abnormal billirubin (or however you spell it) on my Liver function test.It was a tiny tiny bit higher than it should be. My doctor said something about the gall bladder. If it goes any higher this next time I get a Liver function test than we have to do tests for "other things" That was 5 weeks ago. I'm getting the test tomorrow.

    I'm a bit concerned, could it be something else?

  6. QUESTION:
    How often do I do a Gall Bladder Cleansing?
    When using Olive-Oil and Lemon-Juice for the removeal of the Gall Stones.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, gall bladder removal can be avoided all together if people would pay attention to how they eat.

      Secondly, in answer to your question: http://www.relfe.com/gall_stone_cleanse.html Go by this.

      As far as how people eat, there was the Adkins Diet craze and more people had their gall bladder removed because of it than any other time in our history.

      Why?

      Because, they didn't read the book! It clearly stated to eat fruits and vegetables, yet people mainly ate way too much meat. Thus, gall bladder infections from an acidic environment that promotes infections in the gall bladder.

      If you eat a balanced diet and stay away from junk and saturated fats, your gall bladder will function properly.

      The liver is what benefits from lemon juice dash of sea salt and plain water. Olive oil is a fatty acid and promotes a bowell movement. Fiber also takes stress off of the liver. I've actuallly seen Hep C patients viral loads go down by doing these things.

      My friends father was the first bioanalyst in the State of California. The kids grew up with beakers and centrifuges. They became pharmaceutical reps and nurse practitioners. They were taught to cleanse the liver and gall bladder with what you are talking about.

      I think from the nay sayers its the mechanism by which this works that is forgotten knowledge. They know not what they say when they say its not necessary, and yes... It may not be necessary for some, but with our modern refined diets, it has become more of a need once in a while and if the method can be a preventative, then so be it.

      Depending on the circumstances, a food combining vegan who gets constant fiber in the diet doesn't necessarily need the same kind of cleansing as someone who eats fried fatty foods with a distended colon problem.

      Everyone is different, yet everyone deserves whole foods and good nutrition to strengthen the immune system, to have a properly functioning digestive system and endocrine system.

      The entire idea is to prevent oneself from falling off the cliff in the first place and if a harmless cleanse with a non toxic home remedy helps, so what!

      I suggest that if you have gall stones and you have proof in you rmedical charts that you have gall stones, do the cleanse and go back and get another medical assesment and then let us all know if your gall stones have reduced in number or are gone.

  7. QUESTION:
    What treatment's are available for end stage liver disease?
    My uncle has been diagnosed with end stage liver disease, he has been told that he has less than 6 months to live by two out of three doctors. One doctor has given him hope, what treatment's are out there? Herbal, or otherwise. Are there any recommendations on specialist to treat this anywhere? Would like to hear of any experience's good or bad, all comments are welcome.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Desiree

      Here are some remedies regarding liver disease. I believe the liver can be cured, but it wont be easy. Doing a liver cleanse (colon cleanse as well) is a must. A lot of different cleanses out there, so do your research. Here are some remedies and testimonials.

      1.Castor Oil Fomentation: to draw out poisons and flush them out of liver etc. In order to get rid of hardened mucus in the body, which may appear as cysts, tumors or polyps, the following fomentation is to be used:

      Soak a piece of outing flannel or baby's diaper in castor oil, squeeze slightly so it won't drip much, then place over entire frontal torso (neck to groin and side to side). Place a hot water bottle (over the castor oil application) over the liver area (the liver is on the right side just above the waist). It should be noted that a heating pad is not too highly endorsed here, unless a wet towel is placed between it and the skin--but even then, a wet heat (such as the hot water bottle) is best. Leave all this on for 1 1/2 hours; the hot water bottle may have to be refilled with hot water several times, because it cools rapidly. The next three days, over the same area covered by the outing flannel and castor oil, massage in circular motion toward the heart with olive oil for 5 to 10 minutes.

      The seventh day is a day of rest, not only from the fomentation, but every part of the program, drinking only water the entire day--and every seventh day thereafter will be done the same way. On the eighth day then, begin again with the castor oil for three days and so forth, along with the mucusless diet. the herbs, etc., until healing is accomplished. In the use of the fomentation, the castor oil goes through the skin into the liver area and lymph glands and starts drawing out the poisons and flushing them out, while the olive oil goes in and heals and rebuilds new tissue. This procedure may have to be carried on between six weeks to six months to properly clean up the system, depending on the case.

      2.Dr. Christopher's Liver-Gallbladder Formula: To speed up the blood purifying process, it is good to have a good clean liver and gall bladder area. When the liver does not function properly, the bile does not excrete freely into the intestinal tract, and so it passes off into the blood stream and throughout the rest of the system, causing a toxic condition called cholemia, causing indigestion, sluggishness, fatigue, constipation, upset stomach, chills, vomiting and fever. Why wait until it gets to this condition? A combination of barberry (or Oregon grape root), wild yam, cramp bark, fennel seed, ginger, catnip and peppermint--will help relieve this condition.

      Suggested dose: 1/3 Cup or one or two capsules or tablets, 15 to 20 minutes before a meal.

      3.Castor Oil: This oil can be obtained commercially and is used for the liver fomentation to open the capillaries of the liver. It is an excellent external healing oil for discomforts of windburn and is good for massage. But we never use castor oil internally or for a laxative. We often suggest opening up the capillaries of the constipated liver by applying a cotton or flannel cloth which has been soaked in hot castor oil over the area of the liver (on the right side of the body under the rib cage). Place a wet, wrung out hot towel over this cloth and a hot water bottle over that. Keep the fomentation warm for 20 minutes and then alternate with a cold towel fomentation warm for 20 minutes and then alternate with a cold towel fomentation for five minutes. Repeat the hot fomentation and then the cold. This can be continued for about an hour and a half. This has relieved pain of congestion in the liver and other organs such as the gall bladder and the pancreas.

      4.Juices for Liver Trouble: Carrot-beet-cucumber, apple, dandelion, grapefruit, lemon.

      5.Cayenne: There are safer ways to stimulate the gall bladder. One is by taking cayenne pepper orally. This has been reported in medical journals to trip the gall bladder reflex and promote the flow of bile naturally. As we mentioned before, bile is concentrated toxic material recycled by the liver. It acts like a natural laxative. The gall bladder (known in certain surgical circles as "the gold bladder", as we mentioned in an earlier newsletter, because of the tremendous amount of money spent on yearly gall bladder operations), is a reservoir which stores the bile for timed release into the digestive tract where it mixes with other digestive aids. When this organ is removed, the caustic bile drips directly into the duodenum and can cause duodenal ulcers. Dr. Christopher's Liver and Gall Bladder Formula, composed of barberry, wild yam, cramp bark, fennel seed, ginger, catnip and peppermint, can safely rebuild the diseased liver and gall bladder and help them to function normally because this formula is a specific food for these organs. The liver is recognized by medical science as a highly regenerative organ. it can rebuild itself even if there is only one-tenth of it functioning.

      Testimonials
      1.Carrot Juice: One of the most common misconceptions regarding carrot juice is that one will start to develop orange or yellow colored skin after steadily drinking the juice because of the carotene content in the juice. This is not true. The development of yellowish skin is due to the fact that carrot juice is a great liver cleanser and the toxicity within the body is coming to the surface. Keep up with the carrot juice and the symptoms will soon disappear. The formerly constipated liver is reconditioned once again to experience a free flow of bile the excess of which is eliminated through our largest eliminative organ, the skin. I have personally experienced this phenomenon during a time when we prepared hundreds of gallons of carrot juice a week for sale. Because the juice was so abundant and available, I drank it for nearly every meal...sometimes instead of meals. My wife soon commented upon the yellow cast which my skin began to take on. I continued drinking the juice, however, and within a week my skin color was back to normal. But my liver had gone through a wonderful cleansing! It is often a surprise to me that the most learned of health authorities will try to sell you the carotene theory without any sort of proof, personal experience or background.

      2.Dandelion: A classic story about the use of Dandelion is often repeated. Around the turn of the century, A Dr. Sparks wrote,"Fifteen years ago I was afflicted with the liver complaint. I used all my skill trying to cure it but failed. I then tried two physicians, Doctors Wilson and Jordan, but without success. An old nurse told me that Dandelion was an effective folk remedy for this disorder, so I decided to try it. Using Dandelion promptly restored me to health. It then became my favorite prescription for liver complaint, either by the simple extract of the herb or by taking a teacupful of a strong decoction of it twice a day. In almost every instance I have succeeded in restoring those who have used this plant."

      There are plenty of answers to solution, so keep exploring.

      Best of health to you and your uncle.

      Cheers

  8. QUESTION:
    What can I do about the gallstones I just found out I have?
    I went to the hospital because I had a painful gallstone attack. They say its on the neck of the gallbladder. I would like to know what foods I should eat and what I shouldn't eat? And how do I do a liver and gallbladder cleanse? Is it possible to dissolve the stones?

    • ANSWER:
      For the time being, avoid or minimize fatty foods like fried dishes, cheese, whole milk and butter.

      You CANNOT cleanse your gall bladder. Anyone telling you otherwise is trying to sell you a product or doesn't know about medicine.

      If you have an attack it is possible doctors will want to remove your gall bladder. The operation is performed laparascopically now and you leave the hospital the next day. Some people recover in a day. I needed 2-3 days recover due to other issues.

      Please consult your personal physician for qualified advice.

  9. QUESTION:
    Does a liver retain all the toxins it filters?
    If I ate chicken liver, would I be eating the toxins the chicken had, or is it all cleansed out of the blood or through urine?

    • ANSWER:
      You would not. The liver receives the blood and then metabolizes the toxins so that they may be excreted in the bile or the urine. I presume you know where the urine goes, and the bile will be secreted to the common hepatic duct and store in the gall bladder and then subsequently used in digestion in the small intestine. Some of the breakdown products will journey to the large intestine and be passed through the rectum>anal canal>toilet.

  12. QUESTION:
    What are the beneffits of Coconut oil?
    I read somewhere that it is very good for you & might also make you lose weight. Was wondering if anyone knew any benefits from use of coconut oil?

    • ANSWER:
      Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
      Coconut oil is different from other oils commonly used in America. Most American oils are made from seeds like soybeans, canola (rapeseeds), almonds, sesame seeds, safflower seeds, sunflower seeds, etc. These seed oils are predominately made of triglycerides containing long chain fatty acids. To be digested, these long chain fatty acids need to be emulsified by bile salts. Bile salts are produced by the liver, stored in the gall bladder and dumped into the small intestine as needed. They are the emulsifying agents that draw the fats into the aqueous food solutions of the intestinal tract where lipase, a digestive enzyme, can work on them. Next, the long chain fatty acids are broken down into carbon chains made of 14 carbon atoms. This is the standard “energy storage unit” for the body. We call it body fat. All excess carbohydrates in the diet are also converted into these 14 carbon chain triglycerides. They are bound to HDL and LDL carriers in the bloodstream and then transported into storage.

      Since coconut oil contains mostly 8,10,and 12 carbon chain triglycerides (medium chain triglycerides), instead of being digested and traveling in the blood stream as explained above, these medium chain fatty acids are absorbed into the portal vein and transported directly into the liver without requiring lipase or bile salts for digestion. In the liver, these medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) support the immune system and help to cleanse the body of pathogens, toxins, etc. These supportive actions continue as the MCTs travel through the lymphatic system to the rest of the body.

      Since the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil do not travel in the blood stream they have never been shown to contribute to heart disease, provided the oil has not been hydrogenated. People without gall bladders or who cannot digest food well, especially people who cannot digest fats (such as people with cystic fibrosis) can and will thrive on coconut oil. Doctors doing research have known for a long time that the elderly, invalids and the very young thrive on formulas that contain coconut oil. Products like baby formula and Ensure use to be made with coconut oil. Sadly, even these items have fallen victim to the propaganda we have received over the last 50 years.

      As the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil travel throughout the body they are actually anti microbial compounds. For example, Lauric acid, which makes up 48-57% of coconut oil, becomes 2 mono-lauren in the gut. 2-mono-lauren dissolves the lipid envelope that protects most pathogenic bacteria and viruses. It also attacks pathogenic yeast and parasites. Lauric acid contained in a human mother's breast milk is one of the major reasons nursing infants have a high resistance to getting sick. Lauric acid in the diet will have the same effect, regardless of age. Its anti microbial properties have been helping people for thousands of years.

      Coconut oil, because it is smaller than the standard storage unit, is burned for energy rather than stored. This tends to increase the bodies metabolism. People with under-active thyroid glands often discover their basal temperature becomes normal from coconut oil use, especially when combined with a health diet and life-style.. Elderly Americans and many others with low energy often notice they have energy again and a sense of well-being they did not realize they had lost. And, unlike other energy the cell receives, medium chain fatty acids do not require insulin. Most people in the U.S. have some degree of insulin resistance. Many people, as they age, even though they are eating, do not feel they are getting energy from their food. The reason for many people is insulin resistance. The good news is that if a person has coconut oil or coconut products in their diet, the fats will be used as energy and that energy is not dependent on the insulin system working. Therefore, diabetics can get good energy into their cells and people who take naps, or think they need naps in the middle of the afternoon, have energy again. Low Carb dieters, as well, can eat their low carbohydrate meals, but have the energy they would otherwise have received from carbohydrates.

      Lastly, on the skin, the medium chain fatty acids in the coconut oil are identical to the medium chain fatty acids found in sebum. Normal flora that lives on our skin and keeps it healthy will actually live on the glycerol unit of the triglycerides, creating free fatty acids identical to those found in sebum. This allows the skin to have a slightly acidic pH ideal for keeping pathogens away and keeping the skin healthy. For people with dandruff or red spots on their scalp, you just douse the scalp with coconut oil and leave it for about 20 minutes. Then shampoo. You will need to shampoo at least twice. This works better than tea tree oil shampoo from the health food store or anything else you have probably tried. If you have red spots on your skin try it there as well. If you need a little more oomph, add a drop or two of lemon or lavender essential oil to the coconut oil. Many people get out of the shower and reach for their little pot of coconut oil. They just dab it on and spread it all over, very lightly. A number of customers have discovered that if they do this they eventually do not have to use deodorant.
      The highest quality coconut oil, in our opinion is oil that is raw, with a very low moisture content, a low free fatty acid content, and therefore a long shelf-life. The oil is best when packaged in glass as coconut oil can dissolve and absorb plasticizers. Below are companies who carry a coconut oil that fits this criteria:

      Wilderness Family Naturals
      A brand called Fresh Shores that is very good on Dr. Mercola's website
      Jigsaw Health
      Radiant Life Catalog
      Power Hour

      Listen my friend.
      You can not cure Eczema with a lotion or other creame of any kind.
      Eczema is a symptom of some kind of unbalance in your body and life.

      I had eczema my whole childhood and teen years, in my twenties i decided to
      get rid of this no matter what it took. It took alot of research and work, but now 29 years old, i am totally free from eczema. WHAT A RELIEF!!

      You need to optimize youre whole system and clean your body,

      This is what i did:
      - Change diett. Eat clean. fish, good meat, fruits, healty grains, rice, beans, vegetables, etc...
      - Aviod refined suger, bread (yeast products), wheat, strong spices, too much salt, alcohol, don´t smoke, don´t do drugs or unecassary medications, etc... Keep away from BS.
      - DRINK ENOUGH WATER. It helps cleanse your system.
      - If you like, make good smoothies with berrys, fruits, superfood, oils etc.. very good for you.
      - Take some good supplements, multivitmins, greens (helps you acid-base balance), chlorella/spirulina (alges for detoxing), take some kind of complete oil supplement (important for curing eczema) we have something called "Udo's Choice" in my country. Take probiotics (important) helps your stomach,

      - Exercise, something you enjoy and makes you feel good.

      I would suggest doing the Hulda Clark liver cleanse protocol, it includes cleaning the stomach, liver and gall bladder. Remember to do a colon flush (enema) before the main part of the cleanse.

      This is something you should study a bit on you own, just google Hulda Clark and Liver Cleanse.

      I know this is alot of work, but you won't just heal your eczema if you do this, you will improve your whole life immensely. TRY THIS FOR 6 MONTHS!

      Hope this helps you!

  14. QUESTION:
    What are the alternative treatments available in India on Breast cancer?
    I am treating my wife with the help of an experienced Naturopath with mainly 'wheat grass' juce as main ingradient for last three months since she had been dignosed for the cancer. Though it has not spread anywhere in the body, it is quite under controll. I want to know is there other remedy which will add to fast recovery. We are working on the way shown by Ann Wigmore. Will anybody from this group will suggest any thing else from Wheat Grass therepy?

    • ANSWER:
      Alternatives treatments take time, they are slow and cure to the grassroot level.

      Here is a natural cure for Cancer,

      CANCER

      The word ‘cancer ‘ comes from the latin "carcinoma" meaning crab. It is the most dreaded disease and refers to all malignant tumors caused by the abnormal growth of a body cell or a group of cells. It is today the second largest killer in the world, next only to heart ailments. The term covers more than 200 diseases.

      The majority of cancers occur in the age group 50-60. Sex does not affect the incidence of the disease. It, however, affects the site of growth. In men, cancer is usually found in the intestines, the prostate and the lungs. In women, it occurs mostly in the breast tissues, uterus, gall bladder, and thyroid.

      Symptoms
      The symptoms of cancer vary according to the site of the growth. The American Cancer Society has prescribed seven signs or danger signals in general which may indicate the presence of cancer. These are: a sore that does not heal; change in bowel or bladder habits; unusual bleeding or discharge; thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere; indigestion or difficulty in swallowing; obvious change in a wart or a mole, and a persistent and nagging cough or hoarseness. Other symptoms may include unexplained loss of weight, particularly in older people, a change in skin color, and changes in the menstrual periods, especially bleeding between periods.

      Causes
      The prime cause of cancer is not known. Certain cancer- causing substances, known as carcinogens, however, increase the chances of getting the disease. About 80% of cancers are caused by environmental factors, 40% of male cancers in India are linked with tobacco, a known cancer-causing agent. The consumption of pan, bettlenut, tobacco, and slaked lime has been linked with lung and throat cancers. Heavy consumption of alcoholic drinks can cause esophageal, stomach, and liver cancers. Occupational exposure to industrial pollutants such as asbestos, nickel, tar, soot, and high doses of x-rays can lead to skin and lung cancers and leukemia. Other factors contributing to cancer are vital infections, trauma, hormone imbalance, and malnutrition. Many well-known biologists and naturopaths, however, believe that a faulty diet is the root cause of cancer. Investigations indicate that the cancer incidence is in direct proportion to the amount of animal protein, particularly meat, in the diet. Dr. Willard J. Visek, a renowned research scientist explained recently a link between excessive meat eating and cancer. According to him, the villain is ammonia, the carcinogenic by-product of meat digestion.

      Treatment
      The effective treatment of cancer consists of a complete change in diet, besides total elimination of all environmental sources of carcinogens, such as smoking and carcinogenic chemicals in air, water and food. There has recently been a surge of popular interest in the concept that diet is not just a minor, but rather a major factor in both the development and the prevention of cancer. The disease can be prevented and even treated by dietary programs that include ‘natural foods ‘ and the use of megavitamin supplements.

      As a first step, the patient should cleanse the system by thoroughly relieving constipation and making all the organs of elimination - the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and bowels - active. Enemas should be used to cleanse the colon. For the first four or five days, the patient should take only juicy fruits like oranges, grapefruits, lemons, apples, peaches, pears, pineapples and tomatoes. Vegetable juices are also useful, especially carrot juice.

      After a few days of an exclusive fruit diet, the patient may be given a nourishing alkaline-based diet. It should consist of 100 per cent natural foods, with emphasis on raw fruits and vegetables, particularly carrots, green leafy vegetables, cabbage, onion, garlic , cucumber, asparagus, beets, and tomatoes. A minimum requirement of high quality protein, mostly from vegetable sources such as almonds, millet, sesame seeds, sprouted seeds and grains, may be added to the diet.

      Dr. Ann Wigmore of Boston, U.S.A., the well-known naturopath and a pioneer in the field of living food nutrition, has been testing the effect of a drink made of fresh wheatgrass in the treatment of leukemia. She claims to have cured several cases of this disease by this method. Dr. Wigmore points out that by furnishing the body with live minerals, vitamins, trace elements, and chlorophyll through wheatgrass juice, it may be able to repair itself.

      Johanna Brandt, the author of the book ‘The Grape Cure‘ has advocated an exclusive grape diet for the treatment of cancer. She discovered this mode of cure in 1925, while experimenting on herself by fasting and dieting alternately in the course of her nine-year battle with cancer. She claimed to have cured herself by this mode of treatment. She recommends a fast for two or three days so as to prepare the system for the change of diet.

      After the short fast, the patient should have a grape meat every two hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. This should be followed for a week or two even a month or two, in chronic cases of long standing. The patient should begin the grape cure with a small quantity of 30, 60, to 90 grams per meal, gradually increasing this to double the quantity. In course of time, about 250 grams may safely be taken as a meal.

      Recent researches have shown that certain vitamins can be successfully employed in the fight against cancer and that they can increase the life expectancy of some terminal cancer patients. According to recent Swedish studies vitamin C in large doses can be an effective prophylactic agent against cancer. Noted Japanese scientist, Dr. Fukunir Morishige, and his colleagues who have been examining the healing potential of vitamin C for the last 30 years, have recently found that a mixture of vitamin C and copper compound has lethal effects on cancer.

      According to several studies, vitamin A exerts an inhibiting effect on carcinogenesis. It is one of the most important aids to the body’s defense system to fight and prevent cancer. Dr. Leonida Santamaria and his colleagues at the University of Pavia in Italy have uncovered preliminary evidence suggesting that beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A may actually inhibit skin cancer by helping the body thwart the cancer-causing process known as oxidation.

      Recent studies from all over the world suggest that a liberal use of green and yellow vegetables and fruits can prevent cancer. The 20-years old, ongoing Japanese study found that people who ate green and yellow vegetables every day had a decreased risk of developing lung, stomach, and other cancers. A Harvard University study of more than 1,200 elderly Massachusetts residents found that those who reported the highest consumption of carrots, squash, tomatoes, salads, or leafy green vegetables, dried fruits, fresh strawberries or melon had a decreased risk of cancer.

      The other useful measures are plenty of rest, complete freedom from worries and mental stress and plenty of fresh pure air.

  16. QUESTION:
    Getting gallstones after gall bladder removal?
    A friend was told by her doctor that the stomach pain she has been having could be gall stones, even though she had her gall bladder removed 5 years ago. Anyone have any experience with this? Remedy?

    • ANSWER:
      It can not be Gallstone, there is no gallbladder. But , the cholesterol that the gallbladder used to collect, its in her liver right now. The liver is doing an extra job and its exhausted. She needs a liver cleanse.
      http://home.bluegrass.net/~jclark/liver_cleanse.htm
      http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=liver+cleanse&btnG=Google+Search
      I did that cleansing with epsom salt and olive oil few times, Its a life saver, Try to get as much information you can, so you are confident doing the cleansing. After the cleansing ,I allways take aloe Vera, and acidophilus. I had migraines, tinitus , and now I am perfect.

  17. QUESTION:
    If you've ever done a gall bladder/liver flush,is it painful/uncomfortable?
    u know those w/recipes of lemon juice, olive oil,ect
    u take a weekend off to drink weird stuff all day, follow instructions and then later all these gall bladder sones pass through?
    well answer ONLY if you've done this AND
    did you experience pains where ur gall bladder is located at all during any time of the "flush"

    I mean if it really is safe, why not do a "cleanse"

    • ANSWER:
      I've done it and there was really no pain at all considering I'm a veggie person. The only agonizing thing was the sticking to the routine with the flushing recipe, the trips to the toilet, and finally relieving yourself of the stones which were a plenty if it is the first time you're doing it. The funny thing is you hear funny sounds on the gallbladder side after you drink the olive oil stuff. Drinking the olive oil stuff was actually the worst part unless you temper it with lemon juice.

      On the other hand, my friend who was into eating a lot of meat had so much discomfort and pain that he did not push through with the flush. There is a 7-9 day flush recipe for meat eaters that starts with vegetarian meals for at least 3 days that should soften the bile to loosen the stones.

  18. QUESTION:
    What foods are better for digestive health?
    My stomach is often upset and rather than trying to avoid certain foods (because there seem to be so many of them that it is impossible to identify them all) I am curious to know if there are any foods that are supposed to be good for over-all digestive health, and if so, what are they? I know about yogurt already but is there anything else? Also are there any vitamins that are particularly helpful with this?

    (I'm a vegetarian, by the way, but I eat cheese, fish & eggs.)

    • ANSWER:
      For Better Digestion Follow this:

      1. Every morning before breakfast, freshly squeeze the juice of 1 - 2 lemons in 250ml - 500ml of spring or filtered water. This small but effective daily routine will help to cleanse the stomach of left over 'debris' and remove any excess acid.

      2. Another daily drink taken late morning or sometime before lunch will complement the cleanse in 'Tip 1' . This can include 1tsp - 1 tbsp of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with 250ml - 500ml apple juice (freshly squeezed is even better). This drink will balance digestive juices, specifically for low or high levels of Hydrochloric acid (HCl).

      3. Avoid cold drinks while eating. Food is digested more efficiently at around body temperature, therefore cold fluid can slow down the digestive processes. If you must drink while eating, try hot water or herbal teas. Caffeine can cause excess production of HCl so should be avoided, as should alcohol.

      4. Have you ever heard of Swedish Bitters? The taste of bitter herbs, foods, juices etc, 20 - 30mins before eating will increase digestive function by encouraging the release of digestive enzymes, juices and acids.

      5. Specific self massage and exercise techniques used as part of a daily routine will also contribute to better digestion.

      'LIVER EXERCISE' - This exercise massages the Liver and Gall Bladder, tonifying and cleansing these organs. It helps cope with abdominal wind, and assists digestion. Place the heel of the right hand on the right side of the body under the rib cage, and just above the hip bone. The fingers should point straight across the body. Pressing firmly, move the hand slowly across the body to the middle of the abdomen; you should end up with the heel of the hand over the navel. Repeat this action 10-20 times.

      'STOMACH EXERCISE' - This exercise is similar to the Liver Exercise, but is applied to the other side of the body. It benefits the digestion, the Spleen, and the Pancreas, as well as the Stomach. Method: Place the heel of the left hand between the rib cage and the left hip, with the fingers pointing across the body. Move the hand firmly and smoothly across to the centre of the body, until it is over the navel. Repeat 10-20 times.

      6. Short term fasting is one way to allow the digestive system a well deserved break. However "first time fasters"should try it for a maximum of 24hrs.

      Remember always to drink plenty of fruit and vegetable juice during your fast. Also plan your fasting for days when you will not be doing lots of hard physical work and can take plenty of rest.

      7. CHEW, CHEW, CHEW... One of the most important mechanisms of digestion, yet more often than not, the most forgotten!

      Chewing is the first stage of digestion. It not only physically breaks down foods, but signals the organs to secrete their digestive juices (pancreatic enzymes, stomach acids etc) in order to prepare for the incoming foods.

      Naturopaths believe that you should try to chew your food until it is near to a liquid consistency.

      8. 'Food Combining' can work well for many people. There are
      books available which explain the reasons for food combining, for
      example, 'The Hay Diet Made Easy: A Practical Guide to Food
      Combining' by Jackie & Alexandra Habgood. 'Food Combining' is not only for weight loss but can assist problems due to an imbalanced digestive system.

      Briefly, food combining involves the 3 main types of food/fuel i.e. Carbohydrates (bread, potatoes, rice), Proteins (meats, dairy, nuts, soya) and Fats (cooking oils, avocados). It is considered that one should not mix these types of food within one particular meal. For example, eat either carbohydrates alone or proteins alone, together with (non starchy) vegetables or salad.

      9. Colon Cleansing & Liver Cleansing through the use of herbs, foods and supplements will benefit the whole digestive system greatly. There are many companies and practitioners (Naturopathic) who recommend their own cleansing routines and you will find that many elements of the various routines will be similar.

      Any method is good if it does the job! Colon Cleansing & Liver Cleansing are two of the most popular approaches to getting started with detox, and detox benefits every part of the body by helping the body remove toxins which otherwise slow down every organ and every body function. Counteract this tendency by using Colon Cleansing & Liver Cleansing.

      10. Here are some herbs known to help with excess digestive juices & acids in conditions such as Hiatus Hernia and Stomach Ulcers: For example a great digestive tea can be made by comgined the excellent herbs Meadowsweet, Fennel, Comfrey and Peppermint.

      Slippery Elm Tea is a very soothing herbal tea, with a consistency like thin porridge. It is blended with water and drunk hot. Slippery Elm is also available in capsules as Slippery Elm Capsules, if you prefer this. Slippery Elm is a fantastic herb to soothe the bowel if there is IBS or Colitis.

      Bayberry and Wild Yam can also be used in drops (tincture or fluid extract) or as capsules or tablets. These herbs will help to soothe and heal an ulcerated or 'colicky' type of condition. Wild Yam is a great antispasmodic - it relaxes muscles in spasm. It is particularly helpful for the liver and also the bowel. It is also used by women to relax the uterus which can relieve pain during periods or menopause.

      Digestive Capsules or Drops are available as well as teas. Generally, take these for 3-4 months for a course, though you should start to see benefits - eg reduced indigestion - after 2-3 weeks. If not, see a herbalist for advice. Licorice Tea is made in the same way as Ginger Tea.

      Cardamom, Cloves, Fennel, Ginger and Cinnamon can all be made into a tea to be drunk after a meal. Simply place some seeds in half a pint or so of water in a non-aluminium pan. Bring to a gentle simmer and let simmer for a few minutes. Strain and drink. If using fresh ginger, cut a few slices (a few mm thick) and do the same.

      Foods such as Lemons, Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic, Onion, Leek, Rice, Root Vegetables, Papaya, Pineapple and Artichokes can all aid proper digestion. Try to include some of these foods into your general daily diet.

      Good Luck! I hope this helps!

  19. QUESTION:
    can cranberry juice help to completley cleanse the body? i love to use the pure, thick juice from Trdr joes?
    I use the thick pure cranberry from health food stores. it makes me feel better and my skin looks healthier. what are the other benefits of cranberry juice? does it help with gall bladder stone prevention? i know about it and bladder infections but there has to be more than just that benefit? can it completely cleanse the body?

    • ANSWER:
      Cranberry is great for the kidneys, but as for cleansing the whole body I don't know.

      From what I know about cranberry and the body, I can say it is cleaning your kidneys, with them clean the liver can than empty more waste through them, allowing the liver the chance eliminate waste, that would otherwise be sent to the skin for elimination.

      As for the colon and liver, I would say the benefits are reflective, one area is functioning at it's best, will take some of the load off other areas.

      Gallstones are emptied into the intestines, if the liver is functioning properly (where the stones are formed), the stones are eliminated before they are big enough to get stuck in the duct (which is what everyone things of as gallstone), than the waste inside of them can't hurt the body.

      Doing great keep up the good work.

  20. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to relieve pain from a gall stone attack, or do I just suffer?
    I have been to the E.R. twice in one week, found out i have gallstones and have scheduled an appointment for my gallbladder to be removed BUT surgery is not until dec.4th. If I should have another attack how can I relive the pain? or anything that I should do at home to prevent further attacks?

    • ANSWER:
      I and many of my friends have done all natural gall bladder cleanses, they will flush out the colon and you can see them in the toilet bowl. Removing the gall bladder will not solve the problem, it is just an expensive K-K surgery. Gall stones are fatty like substances that FIRST build up in your liver, then they spill over into the gall bladder, they are almost always a result of a very fatty diet with little fiber and little water. They build up over time and can be various sizes. Google " recipe for flushing gallstones" you will see that many people have done this and it is successful, you will see recipes that work. It just takes a couple of days and about . It is a natural detox procedure that you can repeat several times until you no longer see the stones coming out. Most people that have the gall bladder removed will still have the same symptoms reappear within 1-3 years because the problem is with the DIET and they still have gall stones in the liver. I would encourage you to take responsibility for your own health, be proactive and do some research before you go through with this needless surgery.

  21. QUESTION:
    Where does bile produced by your liver go if you have had your gall bladder removed?
    My gall bladder was removed years ago and I went to a Reiki Master and she said I needed to cleanse my liver, plus I have been having pains in that area of my abdominal cavity...just wondering where the bile goes?

    • ANSWER:
      The bile is emptied into the small intestine via the bile duct.

  22. QUESTION:
    I was recommended to try a liver cleanse using grapefruit juice, epsom salt, and olive oil.?
    I have had my gall bladder removed. Is it safe to try this cleanse without a gall bladder?

    • ANSWER:
      A cleanse does nothing. It is a myth.

      The human body is an amazing piece of equipment that is self cleaning. You have several organs that get rid of waste products, such as the liver, the kidneys and the intestines.

      Grapefruit juice has vitamin C, which in excessive doses is just passed out via urine. A normal healthy diet will give you the required daily intake of vitamin C.

      Epsom salts will give you diarrhea, which puts you at risk of dehydration and loss of vital nutrients.

      I have no idea what the use of drinking olive oil is. It is a monounsaturated oil, which is considered a healthy oil. Having said that, it is still oil, which is 100% fat.

      All the gallbladder is, is a sac that stores bile. Bile is made by the liver, stored in the gallbladder, and released from there into the intestines to aid with digestion, especially fats. After having a gallbladder removed, less bile is secreted, which means food is not as easily digested and this causes diarrhea in about 10% of people.

      Having a diet high in fat (including drinking olive oil!!!) can have adverse effects, such as abdominal pain and diarrhea.

      A liver does not need cleansing.

  23. QUESTION:
    Is there a non surgical way or diet to treat gallstones?
    The doctor said I have cholelithiasis, he suggest a minor operation. I don't really like to undergo anymore operation is there a good diet or alternative medicine that can treat this?

    • ANSWER:
      TOO RIGHT THERE IS!

      Don't just listen to the quacks. Go see a Naturopath. The cleanses for removing gallstones are quick, easy and efficient, there is no reason for removing your gall bladder.

      Only have it removed in emergency situations - but don't do the cleanses on your own - go see a qualified naturopath who can teach you to do them properly.

      Yes, they stones can come back in time, but the cleanses are too easy too do to remove them again AND you NEED your gall bladder. It is not a useless part in your system - a good Naturopath will help you find the answers to why they are forming and sort the cause of the problem.

      Removing the gall bladder will just fix a symptom and leave you with the cause of the problem, no gall bladder and a rich doctor. Just do a search for "liver" or "gallbladder cleanse" to see the volume of info that there is out there about this.

      Hope that helps.

  24. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural substitutes for Statins and Anticoagulants?
    Can a person with many allergies to these products have a natural option and what if any effect does sugar have on a person needing to be prescribed these products?

    • ANSWER:
      i am allergic to statins as they make my lupus worse. a dr told me to use olive oil as it reduces cholesterol. he said try to get shot glass full of olive oil every day. this is hard to do when you don't have a gall bladder. so i cook with olive oil only. i take fish oil and omega 3's, vitamin e; these have natural anticoagulants. garlic and onion are good too. eat as much fresh fruits and veg as possible as all help with cholesterol. whole grains, oat bran, flax seed oil and crushed flax seeds; all these help too. avoid these foods; hydrogenated oils, includes margarine. margarine i believe led to my dad's heart attach at 51. if you must do dairy, use real butter, not fake sour cream, xsharp cheddar(walmart carries brand named cabot that is lactose free). do not go on high proteirn diet as is bad for liver and raises cholestral. every morn have hot water with lemon only, cleanses liver. if you must havae salt, use sea salt only as body can assimilate easier. i use natural surgar since all the nutrients are still in it. drs tell me to keep up my supplements as it is keeping my sed rate down and that is what cause blood to clot and causes heart attack and stroke. i take other supplements needed for other diseases. as much as you can treat with supplements, the healthier you will be and live longer. as much as you can stay away from processes food, longer you will live. for me prognosis with lupus is not good, but i remind myself there is always the resurrretion. this life is only temporary and in God's new arrangement we won't be sick.
      (Isaiah 33:24) 24 And no resident will say: “I am sick.” . . .
      (Psalm 37:10, 11) And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. 11 But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.
      (Psalm 37:29) The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it.
      forgot to say, somehow i have also managed to avoid type 2 diabetes and think it is suppplements keeping it at bay.

  25. QUESTION:
    Prostate Cancer. Side effect of hormone treatment is severe hot flushes. Anyone know of some way to ease them?
    All the commononly reccommended treatments have been tried - sage in various forms, all the "womens' ailments remedies" including Evening Primrose . . .
    All without any real easing of the severe discomfort experienced as often as four or five times an hour. Any really helpful suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks a lot.

    • ANSWER:
      I believe that the problem with the meducal industry us that they traet symptoms, and not cause.
      I also believe that cancer is a whole body thing, and should be treated as such.
      So, cleaning out the rest of the body will help solve the problems with the prostate.

  26. QUESTION:
    How EXACTLY does "detoxing" your body in an EPSON salt bath actually work??
    So, your detoxing FROM the outside--how in the world does this "clean" your inside of the body?

    • ANSWER:
      The salts in the epsom salt can actually pass through the skin. They relax pores, muscles and a lit of stuff on your innards.
      There is a "cleanse" that you can do that requires you to drink some epsom salt water. It's supposed to help leanse your liver and gall bladder.

      Getting the cleanse through the skin won't be as effective but it can't hurt.

  27. QUESTION:
    Do colon cleanse products really work?
    Which ones are the best? Do you need to be close to bathroom at all times.

    • ANSWER:
      In light of ignorance about colon cleanses, I'll be honest and tell you YES, they do work and they are very beneficial to your health.

      You can get a cleanse at some doctors offices, but generally, they're hard to find. It's much easier to use an all natural herbal product to get the benefit of cleansing.

      There are also different cleanses: colon, kidney and liver/gall bladder cleanse. They all have different purposes and benefits.

      If you want a complete explanation of the three cleanses, my site has very good information.

  28. QUESTION:
    Hi, just wondered if anyone knows of a good adrenal fatigue dr, i found out i am in stage 3?
    Does anyone have any experience with dr borkin?

    • ANSWER:
      I won't say there isn't a good adrenal Doc, but most likely you'll go to an endocrinologist & sadly, endos don't do much with the adrenals other than tell you to eat right and sleep. Your adrenals can be repaired with rest and nutrition. I have adrenal insufficiency and it hasn't been enough. Through Y!A I learned that may be because I can't absorb nutrients and need a bowel cleanse. In addition since my liver doesn't convert my thyroid hormone properly I should do a liver Gall Bladder Flush to detox.

      If they give you a hormone, like cortef hydro-cortisone to replace function you cannot live without it. You'll never get off it. You will suffer side effects like facial swelling.

      I received a protocol from z.hoyte@xtra.co.nz They are a clinic in New Zealand.

      I don't know which paths you are willing to explore but TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is helpful, and Chiropractors have supplements that have glandulars that help. My Doc actually referred me to a Chiropractor.

      You may want to research this. Try medlineplus.gov

      I wish you well!

      ADDED LATER!! I just remembered my son told me they do adrenal research and cancer research & treatment at The University of Michigan. I believe they are the only place that researches and treats in the USA.

  29. QUESTION:
    I'm having my gallbladder out on 2/3. Is a BRAT diet the best thing for the first days afterwards?
    BRAT is an acronym for bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. Is this the best thing to eat while my liver adjusts its bile output to the loss of the gallbladder?

    • ANSWER:
      To be honest I am not sure, I did read a while back about a cleanse that removed the gall stones naturally. I know it might be too late for you but some of the reviews were amazing. It's hard to find natural remedies as people selling stuff will be at the front of the search engine results.

      Take a look you might see some good results and be able to avoid surgery, some of the people who have tried it have left great testimonials. It details how to do the cleanse with apples olive oil & lemon.

      Dr Lewis found that 99% of the people who did his gall bladder cleanse had gall stones.

      Dr Lewis' method removes gall stones:

      * Easily
      * Painlessly
      * Virtually for free
      * Usually overnight

      PLUS you get to keep your gall bladder, which is essential to keep your body at peak health!

      The ONLY ingredients you need are virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

      There are some optional ingredients: Prior to the cleanse, apple, carrot, orange or grapefruit juice for a brief fast. During the cleanse, some V8 juice or pineapple juice.

      Following the cleanse he strongly recommends vitamin c, methionince, choline, inositol and lecithin be added to your daily supplements.

      Good luck

  30. QUESTION:
    I need research on liver cleansing?
    Can you provide me with primary literature concerning methods and the efficacy of liver/gall bladder cleansing in regards to the elimination of gall stones? Please no recommendations, just link me to published, primary scientific literature. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Just read the books written Dr. Sandra Cabot.
      "The Liver Cleansing Diet" and the "Healthy Liver and Bowel" book.
      She is now also doing extensive studies into Hep B + C and Fatty Liver Syndrome and looking for interested people living in the USA who are the sufferers of those diseases.
      Can't wait for the future papers documenting these studies.

  31. QUESTION:
    What type of detox should I try?
    I have been on a lot of medicine lately and I was thinking a detox would not hurt. I saw a whole bunch of stuff at the health food store and I am not sure which one to try or do. Any advice from people who have done a detox? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      I would try a "kit" that will gently detoxify all of your major organs and move your bowels. This way, you dont have to worry about any major details, since a good quality kit is complete.

      I use Renew Life's Organic total body cleanse kit. It's 2 weeks long and you take it when you wake up and at bedtime only. It also has the fiber that you need to move your bowels properly.

      Another good one is Nature's Way Thistilyn Mineral Cleanse Kit. This one is also just 2 weeks long.

      These are great cleanses if you are not used to cleansing or just want something convenient.

      In my opinion, the master cleanse is for weight loss and the Liver/gall cleanse is for people in serious trouble with gall bladder pain or liver pains. and it is very specific. The person forgot to tell you the progectile diarrhea you get if you dont follow instructions, and the insomnia that follows if you dont take the Ornithine the night you do it.

  32. QUESTION:
    what happens if you hold urine and keep drinking water?
    What happens to the body?

    • ANSWER:
      The body recycle the urine & waste. Bacteria builds in the uretha. Kidneys, and bladder. The body attempts to cleanse the "waste"urine. The white blood cells attempts to carry the waste to the lymphnodes. The lymphnodes attempt to stre the waste in the liver, gall bladder, & appendix. At this point, you're kidneys have failed. Your body is polluted with impurities and you suffer water intoxification.

  33. QUESTION:
    What vitamins help liver stress?
    Hi. I need to take a vitamin to promote liver health. I take a prescription med that is very hard on the liver and enjoy a few drinks sometimes. Can somebody advise me on some supplements?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I can thinks of two types of natural remedies for robust liver health:

      Corbicula Clams have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a liver enhancing tonic, and to treat liver disorders for ages. Unfortunately, some people miss out on a real health-enhancing miracle because they've heard that one can contract Hepatitis A from eating contaminated clams. But the truth is that if the clams come from a fresh uncontaminated source, they are actually one of the best things you can take for your liver.

      In Japan, Corbicula Clams is routinely taken for liver ailments and to ensure a healthy liver. It is regarded the best remedy for heavy drinkers. With the increasing research done on its benefits, Corbicula Clam has gained much recognition as a health-enhancing tonic.

      While all Corbicula Clam is good for the liver, the quality varies greatly depending on the region the clams are obtained. The best Corbicula Clams come from the HuaLien County in Taiwan. One unique feature that sets the Corbicula Clams form that region apart from the Corbicula Clams from other countries - is their golden color... hence the name "Golden Clams". The nutritional value of the Golden Clam surpasses any other, and has more profound liver-enhancing benefits. In fact, the Golden Corbicula Clam is now regarded as one of the few Taiwan's National Treasures.

      The Golden Corbicula Clam is packed with the perfect balance of essential amino acids, particularly Ornithine, Taurine and Arginine. which are very important to support liver's detoxification process; Choline to prevent fatty liver; B vitamins and organic minerals, including zinc and calcium, essential to support healthy liver function; trace minerals; energy-boosting glycogen, and DHA.

      Another one is

      Milk Thistle, a native Mediterranean herb, has been used in Europe for thousands of years as a remedy for liver problems. Its advantages for protecting the liver have been recorded since the first century AD. Virtually every pharmacopoeia recommends this remarkable herb for disorders of the liver, spleen and gall bladder.

      As a potent anti-oxidant, milk thistle encourages liver cells to produce glutathione, a compound necessary for thorough cleansing and detoxification. Milk thistle stabilizes and strengthens the cell walls of the liver, making them resistant to toxins and pollutants. It is also a useful treatment for certain skin problems related to liver disfunction such as psoriasis.

      Milk thistle stimulates the regeneration of new liver cells to replace those damaged by alcohol, drugs, hepatitis and cirrhosis. In a double blind clinical study conducted in the psychiatric ward of an Italian hospital, 60 patients aged 40 to 60 who had been on anti-depressant drugs for five years were given milk thistle for one month. The result of the trial suggested that liver damage from psychotropic drugs can be minimized by milk thistle.

  34. QUESTION:
    What are the medicinal properties of sage?
    Regular sage.

    • ANSWER:
      Just from the top of my head: Sage is antiseptic, strongly drying, dispering (which means it breaks things up, especially mucous, old fats, congestion and stagnation, and gets them moving). It is antihelmintic (sp?, which means it assists in getting rid of worms and wormlike intestinal parasites), and is also an antiflatulent (which means it helps to dispel gas from the body, which is one of the main reasons it is cooked with beans alot, especially white cannellini beans in classic Italian and Provencial French cooking.); It is a cholagogue and is used culinarily with such fatty foods/meats such as pork, duck and goose for good reason. As it is a cholagogue, it cuts fats and mucous in the body and helps in their digestion and expectoration/expulsion from the body. It stimulates both the liver and the gall bladder, especially the gall bladder, and so is an excellent herb for someone who is billious, or has gout, or chronic indigestion b/c of excess consumption of fats. It can heal all manner of sore throats, mouth sores, canker sores, upset stomachs (but remember anything taken to its extreme becomes its opposite, so if one takes too much sage or too strong a tea, digestive upset, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting--all are possible.) It is used spiritually, especially by Native Americans, usually, tho' not always, in combination with sweet grass to cleanse a space or to cleanse people's spirits and auras, to make whole and holy again, to purify. It would not necessarily be the herb of first choice for someone who is already excessively red, dry or hot as sage will increase these qualities in a being. It would not necessarily be the herb of first choice for someone who is red in the face, angry, choleric, excessively bilious again, as it could aggravate these conditions. It has been shown to lower blood sugars in diabetic folks.

      This from "the epicenter": "Attributed Medicinal Properties
      The oils sage have antiseptic, astringent, and irritant properties. This makes sage useful in treating sore throats, mouth irritations, and possibly cuts and bruises. Experiments in 1939 showed it had estrogenic properties, which may have some connection to the herb's reputed ability to dry tip milk. Research has shown it lowers blood sugar in diabetics. Sage is used to relieve excess mucous buildup. It is beneficial to the mind by easing mental exhaustion, soothing nerves, and by strengthening the concentrating abilities. In a lotion or salve, it is useful for treating sores and skin eruptions, excessive sweating, and for stopping bleeding in all cuts. Chewing the fresh leaves soothes mouth sores and sore throats, as will sage tea. It is good for all stomach troubles, diarrhea, gas, flu and colds. As a hair rinse, it removes and treats dandruff. Sage combined with peppermint, rosemary, and wood betony provides an excellent headache remedy. It is used to regulate the menstrual cycle, to decrease milk flow in lactating women, aids in treating hot flashes, and is used as a deodorant. The essential oil is used in aromatherapy to cleanse and purify the air. In a carrier oil, it makes an excellent deodorant.

      Sage also contains terpene, camphor, and salvene. An essential oil is extracted from freshly harvested leaves by steam distillation and this is used in seasonings for pork sausages, processed foods, perfumes, confectionery, mouthwashes and gargles."

  36. QUESTION:
    Gallbladder liver cleanse versus gallbladder removal?
    My Uncle has lots of gallstones and is wondering how well the liver cleanse works and is it worth going through the pain? Is it better to try the liver cleanse first, before going through surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      (ANS) No.1 The fact that stones form inside the gall bladder is directly related to how the body handles fatty (rich) foods. The formation of gall stones is dietary related but also there is a genetic element to someone getting stones forming i.e. possibly a family history?

      No.2 Obviously it makes complete sense to try a liver cleansing first if this is what the GP or consultant has recommended. DON'T try this if it hasn't actually been formally suggested.

      No.3 My dad had his gall bladder removed completely & the body can deal quite OK! once its been taken out. My best friend had the stones removed by surgery i.e. day surgery. because her stones were far too large to be passed from the body in the normal way. Passing stones can be excruciatingly painful I believe. Removal via surgery is far far the best option as I understand this.

      Best Regards Ivan.

  37. QUESTION:
    What do you think of these symptoms?
    My friend has been to doctors all her life because of problems. She's not the healthiest eater, but neither am I and I don't have nearly the problems she does. She doesn't get sick often, but when she does it's usually pretty bad. She even got whooping cough in the time that I knew her, and has had this horrible chronic cough ever since. They wonder if it's because she was misdiagnosed twice before they figured out it was whooping cough. She's been slowly developing food sensitivities, starting from what I think was the first time when we were about 17, and she started getting sick from pink lemonade. Then she gradually became lactose sensitive around 18 or 19, and is now fully lacotse intolerant or has some sort of allergy because lactaid doesn't even work for her anymore. Her choice of foods seems to keep getting narrower. She's 23 and has had illness dealing with the lungs (bronchitis and such) far too often. It's never just a cold with her.
    She also often seems to get some sort of stomach virus, but I sometimes wonder if it has to do with another food allergy or reaction that she just doesn't know about. Remarkably, she's a little overweight, though she exercises and aside from the health problems, seems to be rather fit.

    Any ideas? She's been to doctors and all they can say is that they don't know what's going on. I'm wondering if they just arne't fitting all the pieces together and working too hard on dealing with one symptom at a time. I've been watching Mystery Diagnosis and Diagnosis Unknown, and started thinking that maybe there's something more to this than just bad diet and random illness that just happens to strike her worse and more often than anyone else.
    I forgot to add: she's a virgin, has had no sexual contact, so STDs that her mom didn't have are ruled out, and I do believe that her and her mom are clean.
    Ah yes. Never thought about that. No, she doesn't smoke, doesn't drink, and the only drugs she's been on were those prescribed to her, which she hasn't gotten any for anything chronic. She's been on antibiotics a few times. I forget if she got on the pill or not, because she was talking about starting the pill to lessen her cramps. As far as I know she never did, but these problems started long before she even considered it.

    • ANSWER:
      Food intolerances can develop at any time. Since she is acquiring more, has her immune function been accessed? Reaccuring stomach bugs can also indicated liver/gallbladder problems. Also difficulties in losing weight often indicate liver or thyroid problems.

      How is her skin? Acne can be hormonal or liver/immunie system related. She could find a health food store and purchase a 30 day internal cleansing kit. There is one that works on the liver, bowel, gall-bladder, bladder and kidneys. If she has taken a lot of antibiotics or other medicines, if could be that she needs to be cleaned out.

  38. QUESTION:
    If you've done a gall bladder liver cleanse, which recipe did you use 4ur cleanse? I'm serious?
    did you feel seriously ILL
    right b4 all the nasty gunk poured out of the bowels?

    some woman on youtube made a vid advising ppl not even to think abt trying gall bladder liver cleanses.

    but she used strange combos of ingredients i had never heard of b4 ...... {epson salt and olive oil???} {SALT?!?!} no wonder she felt sick
    never heard of anyone drinking down a bunch of salt, hmmm

    • ANSWER:
      Lots of good, clean, ph balanced water. If you can get it oxygenated that's even better.

      Also, I like artichoke and sarsaprilla. It is really a liver cleanse, but by cleansing the liver, you pretty much cleanse everything else...especially the gall bladder.

  39. QUESTION:
    What is Ayurveda and what is Panchakarma?
    Ayurveda is a system of holistic life-style, which encompasses the body, mind and spirit. The traditional Ayurvedic system appeared and was practiced on a regular basis in India, 5000 years ago. The Sanskrit word Ayurveda means “The science of life”. “Ayus” means “life” and it refers to the fundamental energy of life. “Veda” means knowledge or, in other words, science. Ayurveda therefore represents an invaluable treasure of theoretical and practical knowledge that helps us find the best ways to improve the life of the human being. www.AyurvedicHospitalKerala.com

    • ANSWER:
      Ayurveda emphasizes preventative and healing therapies along with various methods of purification and rejuvenation. Ayurveda is more than a mere healing system, it is a science and art of appropriate living which helps to achieve longevity. It can also guide every individual in the prevention of disease and long term maintenance of health. To achieve this balanced state of body, mind and consciousness, Ayurveda prescribes Panchakarma Therapy for the cleansing of body toxins.

      The Panchakarma therapy of Ayurveda is comprised of five basic types of advanced treatment for the evacuation of vitiated Dosha (toxic materials) from the body. One can consider this as a body de-tox program. There are so many subtypes of this therapy and different types of herbal massages, fomentation's such as steam, external oil treatments, Basti (medicated enemas), Virechana (purgation through herbs), Vamana (emesis through herbs), Nasya (nasal administration of oils) etc. are also incorporated. These practices are extremely helpful in relieving deep seated diseases as well as being beneficial for maintaining and improving physical and mental health.

      Purvakarma: Pre-purification Measures for Panchakarma
      Before the actual operation of purification begins, there is a need to prepare the body in prescribed methods to encourage the release of toxins. The two procedures are Snehana and Swedana.

      Snehana (Abhyangam) is the oil massage. Oil is applied to the entire body with a particular type of massage which helps the toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal tract. Oil massage also makes the superficial and deep tissues soft and supple, thus helping to remove stress and to nourish the nervous system. Snehana is given daily for three to seven days, as indicated.

      Swedana is sudation or sweating and is given every day immediately following the Snehana. An herbal concoction may be added to the steam to further loosen the toxins from the individual. Swedana liquefies the toxins and increases the movement of toxins into the gastro-intestinal tract.

      Pradhanakarma: Main Purification measures of Panchakarma

      Vamana: Emesis Therapy
      When there is congestion in the lungs causing repeated attacks of bronchitis, colds, cough or asthma, the Ayurvedic treatment is therapeutic vomiting - Vamana, to eliminate the Kapha whic is causing the excess mucus.

      Virechana: Purgation Therapy
      When excess bile, Pitta, is secreted and accumulated in the gall bladder, liver and small intestine, it tends to result in rashes, skin inflammation, acne, chronic attacks of fever, vomiting, nausea and jaundice. Ayurvedic literature suggests in these conditions the administration of therapeutic purgation or a therapeutic laxative.

      Nasya: Nasal Administration
      The nose is the doorway to the brain and it is also the doorway to consciousness. The nasal administration of medication is called Nasya. An excess of bodily humors accumulated in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas is eliminated by means of the nearest possible opening, the nose.

      Basti: Enema Therapy
      Vata's predominant site is the colon. Ayurvedic Basti involves the introduction into the rectum of herbal concoctions of sesame oil, and certain herbal preparations in a liquid medium. Basti, is the most effective treatment of Vata disorders, although many enemas over a prescribed period of time are usually required. It relieves constipation, distention, chronic fever, cold, sexual disorders, kidney stones, heart pain, backache, sciatica and other pains in the joints. Many other Vata disorders such as arthritis, rheumatism, gout, muscle spasms and headaches may also be treated with Basti. Basti therapy is divided in two main types - Anuvasana Basti - medicated oil enemas and Niruha Basti - medicated enema of decoctions and medicated oils.

      Other miscellaneous therapies of Panchakarma:

      Shirodhara: It is recommended in anxiety, depression, hypertension, insomnia etc.
      Kati Basti: Useful in different backaches.
      Janu Basti: Useful in arthritis of the knee joint.
      Nadi Sweda: Useful in pain disorders of different sites.
      Pinda Sweda: Useful in neurological ailments and in the management of different pains.
      Shashti-Shali Pindasweda: Useful in neurological ailments.
      Tarpanam: Useful in the ailments of the eyes.
      Shirobasti: Useful in hair loss and the falling hair and other diseases of skull.
      Uttara Basti: Useful in genitourinary diseases and infertility of female.
      Udvartana: It is a medicated Ubtan to be applied over the skin for fair and glowing skin.

  41. QUESTION:
    bowel cleansing ~ pros cons and recommending cleansing ideas?
    I would like to know all the pros and cons and any trialed cleansing products, I have never done before and am 42 years old and interested in learning all i can about it before attempting it

    • ANSWER:
      I have tried a couple of the bowel cleansing products and both were extremely harsh on my system and made me very sick for a few days ........... that was quite a few years ago and i would therefore not hesitate to advise you to stay well clear of them anyways as the human body has an amazing capacity to cleanse itself if we let it do it's job and do maintain as healthy a diet as we can and drink plenty of fresh filtered water on a daily basis....... avoid those colon cleansing programmes like the plague hun .............. they're all just really slick and persistently mind numbing marketing ♥

      Dandelion tea works wonders on a sluggish liver (the primary filtering organ of the body), gall bladder (which produces bile to assist the digestion of fatty foods) and spleen ( an organ producing new red blood cels), and it also encourages bowel action and reduces fluid retention. Drinking Dandelion tea is one of the most effective ways to detox your body, because it stimulates digestive enzymes and bile to allow the easier metabolism of fatty foods.

      Dandelion leaves, alfalfa, aspargus, celery and vitamin B6 can all work as natural diuretics.

      Dandelion tea is excellent for ridding the body of excess fluid because, as the tea leaves contain high amounts of potassium, the body is not depleted of this important mineral through the diuretic effect of the tea♥

      Ensure, for therapeutic purposes, that you buy organic Dandelion leaf as the commercial or teabag varieties have had so much of their essential oils pulverised from them. Another reason to use organic is one of the properties of the Dandelion plant is to absorb metal pollutants from the atmosphere ~ as such organic really is essential. Add honey to taste if you like as the taste can be quite bitter ..... or lemons or limes if you like the tartness♥;

      2 - 3 teaspoons per teapot would be sufficient♥By buying the organic variety, the essential oils are still so potent that the spent leaves could be reused 2 - 3 times ~ simply refill the pot with hot water and rebrew for 15 - 20 minutes.♥

      Limit your intake of Dandelion tea to a period of say 2 - 3 weeks at a time ........ have rest periods in between using it ♥

      Perhaps this link may be of use to you ~

      http://www.detoxaustralia.com.au/supplementing_your_diet.htm

      Water, water water .... Ensure that you also hydrate your body properly with at least 2 - 3 litres of water per day as nothing substitutes for pure fresh water♥

      Try to cut back on dehydrating drinks such as coffee, tea, sodas and soft drinks and alcohol (if you drink any of these) as they will not only dehydrate you terribly but also rob you of your essential B complex of vitamins.

      Take a multi B complex supplement also.... to support healthy immune, neural and digestive functioning...... great for bolstering your body to deal with life's every day stressy situations .... Get one including all the B's ie ~ B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 andB12 etc. as they all work best as a group. Don't buy any of the B complex of vitamins individually but rather as a whole group, unless specifically told to do so buy a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath ♥

      Please also ensure that you consult with a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath or herbalist before using Dandelion herb if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and do not use on infants or young children ♥

      Try to cut out all junky and pre packaged foods and eat food as freshly and as close to its natural state as you possibly can...... pump your intake of leafy and green vegies, vegies, fresh fruits, wholegrain cereals and breads, cold water fishes and organic lean meats ♥

      Also, it is important that you pinpoint any intolerances or allergies to foods that you may have as this will only hinder digestive and disrupt the elimination process.

      hope this info is usefull for you & good health 2 u♥

      Good health to you & yours♥

  42. QUESTION:
    Is it healthy to drop weight this fast?
    I am 5'11 and 250 pounds. Four years ago I lost 70 pounds and weighed 185 pounds by doing streneous exercise. But since then I gained my weight back. Now I am seeing a diet expert and he gives me meal replacement shakes. I lost 7 pounds in 6 days, is it healthy? If it is what else can I do to lose more weight without intensive training?

    • ANSWER:
      You could take a decent colon cleanse - seriously.

      When John Wayne died and they did the autopsy - he had over 45 POUNDS OF FECAL MATTER CAKED IN HIS INTESTINES ... that is probably why he died.

      I lost like 55 pounds in my first month of the cleanse and I know many others that lost lots - and some that needed to gain - actually gained.

      After you do the colon cleanse you should not stop though - you could do a liver and gall bladder cleanse to get rid of stones that are basically parasites that your body encases in a hard calcium and other mineral ... prison?

      then a kidney and blood cleanse and go from there.

      You will also be amazed at how clear the mind gets and how great everything else works - start with the colon cleanse though and get your mind to operating your body again - and it will keep you away from junk foods and get you on the track to enjoy wholesome and clean foods if you let it guide you ...

  43. QUESTION:
    has anyone ever done a liver gall bladder flush ? if so whats the best way to go about it ?
    i have been diagnosed with having gall stones and they are quite painfull i have trawled the net for answers to avoid surgery to remove the painfull criters . there are a number of sites that sugest drinking olive oil and lemon /grapefruit juice (ewwww) together to one soften the stones and to help them be removed after drinking a glass of epsom salts ( again ewww) . is there any one out there that has done this and it has actually worked for them as apparently by the am the stones should start to be expelled from the body . if this is true and someone can tell me they have done it and it has worked to then i am willing to bite the bullet and give it a go . help please *

    • ANSWER:
      If you have gall stones, the WORST thing you could do would be a cleanse. That would be like trying to flush a large orange down your toilet.... it's just going to get stuck and more fluid will back up behind it, but instead of overflowing, it'll back up within your body (since there's nowhere for it to flow out). Needless to say, that could cause all sorts of problems.

      That's exactly why most cleanses that work anywhere other than just the colon have warnings of not to use it if you have an obstruction in that area. You'll want to talk to your doctor before doing anything that bad. They may even try ultrasound to break them up (some do, some don't).

  44. QUESTION:
    Why do I keep waking up at the same time EVERY night?
    I have been waking up (unwelcomingly) every night between 4:30 and 5 AM. I am not exaggerating when I say that this has happened every night for the past 6 months with the exception of 3 or 4 days when I went to bed extremely late partying and had no particular time to wake up. The only thing that I could say has changed in the past 6 months was getting a job out of school and having to wake up at 6:30 AM every morning. Does it have something to do with my sleep cycle? My boss told me that you feel best when you wake up after a REM cycle. Is this my body's way of telling me that it is time to wake up knowing that I have to be up at 6:30?

    • ANSWER:
      Our bodies have a body clock which performs certain maintenance functions every 2 hours.

      Between 1-3 AM the body is performing the liver cleansing and repairing process. 3-5 AM is the time for lung regeneration. 5-7 AM Large Intestines. 7-9 AM Stomach, 9-11 AM Sleen - Pancreas, 11-1 PM Heart, 1-3 PM Small Intestines, 3-5 PM Bladder, 5-7 PM Kidney, 7-9 PM Circulatory system, 9-11 PM Triple Warmer, 11-1 AM Gall Bladder. This is according to acupuncture and ancient Chinese systems of health.

    • ANSWER:
      I suggest you Google for "gallbladder flush."
      And consider surgery as only the VERY LAST resort. Lithotropy is often a good choice, too.

    u know those w/recipes of lemon juice, olive oil,ect
    u take a weekend off to drink weird stuff all day, follow instructions and then later all these gall bladder sones pass through?
    well answer ONLY if you've done this AND
    did you experience pains where ur gall bladder is located at all during any time of the "flush"

    I mean if it really is safe, why not do a "cleanse"

    • ANSWER:
      I had done this safely several times in the past to put off having the operation. Taking the epson salt solution, ment being very close to the loo for 48 hours. That doesn't happen with the lemon flush.

      There was no pain, I was instructed to sleep in a fetal position, after taking the citrus or epsonsalts solution/ and oil.

      Cleansing does not tackle the problem of safely removing the calcium stones or cholesterol stones. They must be softened
      so as not to damage or get stuck [if very large] in the bile duct .
      In the run up to this I had to take large daily doses of fresh apple juice for 2 weeks in my diet.

    a liver and gall bladder stone flush? I am currently on the Master Cleanse and want to know if it is a good idea to do the liver and gall bladder flush/detox to get rid of the stones I may have. Thanks much.

    • ANSWER:
      That would be too much stress on your organs. Wait a month be four you do the gallbladder cleanse. In most of the protocols after you've done such a regime, you should wait min. of two weeks anyway.

  48. QUESTION:
    Septocaine is the toughest of all anesthesias for the liver and body to excrete fully, any natural remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing if you can find it is called Chinese Bitters. This will cleanse your liver very well, and your gall bladder.
      If this is not available, the next best is dandelions. Used as a tea, or in capsule form.
      Others used are as mentioned above milk thistle(though not the strongest),chammomile, lobelia, wild yam, sassafras, and kelp.
      Oh and Parsley, :)
      Good luck with the cleanse. Remember to start the cleanse on a day when you are home, as most of them will cleanse the gall bladder and colon as well, and you may want to stay near a toliet depending on how blocked up you are.

  49. QUESTION:
    is it possibe to reverse the digestion process?

    • ANSWER:
      The digestive and elimination tract is one long tube, approximately 30 feet long. Also known as the alimentary canal, it includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, and ileum), colon (cecum, ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid) rectum, and anus.

      The digestion process begins in the mouth. When you chew, the salivary glands produce saliva to mix with the food. The saliva enzymes (amylase) initiate the digestion of starches. Saliva also lubricates the food for its travel down the nine inch long esophagus through the cardiac sphincter to the stomach.

      The stomach is a muscular sac with a mucosa lining that secretes hydrochloric acid and the enzyme pepsin to help digest food. These juices work toward digestion of proteins.

      As food leaves the stomach, it enters the small intestine through the pyloric valve, where it triggers the release of hormones. The digestive hormones stimulate the liver and gall bladder to release bile and stimulate the pancreas to release pancreatin. The liver and pancreatic enzymes continue the process begun in the stomach of breaking down carbohydrates and proteins, but they also start the breakdown of fats. The walls of the duodenum also secrete digestive enzymes. The wall of the entire small intestine consists of folds that resemble accordion pleats. These folds have even smaller folds on their surface called villi. These increase the surface area of the small intestine to about the size of a tennis court. From the duodenum, the chyme continues on to the jejunum and finally the ileum. The small intestine is where the majority of food absorption takes place. Each villus contains a capillary network that introduces the digested food nutrients into your bloodstream. The portal vein transports this digested food first to your liver and then if deemed acceptable, onward into your entire circulatory system to feed every cell in your body.

      Any remaining food particles then travel from the ileum in the small intestine, through the ileocecal valve into the large intestine (colon). The colon is about 5-6 feet long and 2 ½ - 3 inches in circumference. It continues the absorption of water, vitamins, and minerals from the intestinal contents. This process dries the intestinal contents and turns them into waste for release. During this process, due to the vacuum effect that occurs as the body absorbs the final bits of water, vitamins, and minerals, waste material is drawn to the walls of the colon. When there is inefficient peristaltic movement of the colon to move waste out, or if there is inadequate amounts of fiber in the matter, waste material will continue to build up along the walls of the colon until there may be only a small opening for it to move through. This problem may manifest itself with symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, or very small bowel movements.

      Ideally, one should have a bowel movement after each meal, in other words two to three bowel movements a day. Unfortunately, for many people, a single bowel movement daily is common, for others it may be one every few days or even one a week. We have even had some say that they will go two or three weeks between bowel movements! This ineffective and inefficient cleansing of the bowels has been demonstrated to contribute to many health issues.

      As you can see from the description of the digestive system, there is much that the needs to be accomplished throughout each phase of the digestive tract. As such, it is vitally important to keep the digestive system working optimally. If there is a problem with the way that the stomach, small intestine or colon works, then the body is unable to digest food properly. If the food is not digested (broken down) properly then the body will be unable to assimilate the nutrients.

      It is important that we keep the digestive system working well. There are several ways to accomplish this and each compliments the other. Together they are much more efficient and effective than they could be individually.

      One of the ways to help the colon cleanse quickly and effectively is through colon cleansing and hydration (sometimes referred to as colonics). Colon Cleansing/Hydration is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated several times during a session. It is best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise. Today's sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice.

      It is vital, in order to keep the colon clean, to get adequate fiber in the diet. When fiber is lacking, the movement of food through the digestive system slows. With the sluggish movement through the system, food remains for an extended period. This can cause a stagnation of the food, which can result in the food literally putrefying and rotting in the tract. When this happens, there can be a buildup on the wall of the digestive tract, which can inhibit the release of digestive juices and/or block the absorption of nutrients into the villi and thus the bloodstream, liver and cells. If the cells do not assimilate the nutrients, then they will not have the materials needed to rebuild, repair, and reproduce healthy cells. In this situation, the body has no choice but to produce inferior cells. Eventually as the body produces more of these inferior cells, it will result in inferior tissues, organs, organ systems, and final a complete body breakdown.

      This breakdown does not happen overnight, but over a period, various symptoms may occur which can result in a variety of disease processes being diagnosed from a medical standpoint.

      When partaking of a healthy diet, consisting of large amounts of fresh raw fruits, vegetables, whole grains, raw nuts, and seeds, many people have found that it is possible reduce, reverse, and in some cases eliminate this type of a problem due to the high amount of fiber, unprocessed, and nutrient dense foods that are consumed.

      Unfortunately, most people do not take in enough fiber to offset the typical “Standard American Diet” (SAD). To deal with this, we recommend our clients use a fiber product in addition to changing over to a whole foods diet with the elimination of processed foods. By including an additional fiber product in the diet, it is often possible to prevent and reverse various colon problems.

      For many people though, additional fiber is not enough. If the body has the nutrients needed to build healthy cells, then it will have access to what it needs to keep working towards a total, optimal health situation– but only if the body is able to assimilate the nutrients. What this can mean is that for some people, even though they eat an optimal diet, they may still have health issues because they are not able to utilize the nutrients. For most people, after many years of consuming the “SAD” foods, the body may have difficulty actually breaking down food. In order to deal with this we suggest using digestive enzymes.

      Digestive enzymes assist the body with the breakdown of foods, thus making it easier to assimilate the nutrients into the bloodstream, into the liver and then into every cell of the body. We use the enzymes with every cooked meal. Many people experience the best results when taking them with raw meals and between meals as well.

      In addition, due to the highly processed foods that are consumed, the delicate balance of friendly and unfriendly bacteria in the colon can become unbalanced in favor of the unfriendly bacteria! Many of our clients find that by adding a regimen of good, healthy, friendly bacteria, probiotics and digestive enzymes that their digestive system seems to work much more efficiently by decreasing the amount of gas, bloating, and cramping that they experience.

      Our goal is to have total health, where every body system, every organ, every cell is the healthiest that it can be. If that is your goal as well, I encourage you to call us today and schedule your appointment for a personal, private consultation where we can discuss your own situation and help you to find out what your choices are in order to improve your quality of health and thus your quality of life.

  50. QUESTION:
    What is a good colon cleanse to do? I just finished a Dr Natura and want to continue another month?

    • ANSWER:
      You can use herbs for mild colon cleansing. These herbs remove the fecal matter, prevent accumulation of toxins, destroy the pathogens and tone up the working of the colon muscles to help in bowel movement, naturally and regularly. These herbs have been successfully used for centuries. Besides, cleansing the colon, they also cleanse live and perform cathartic acts.

      Aloe leaf, senna, cascara sagrada, ginger, and cayenne pepper are used in colon cleansing and restore the normal bowel movements. They enhance the bile secretion that helps in liver cleansing. E.g. barberry stimulates the function of liver and gall bladder, fennel and garlic destroy harmful bacteria in the colon. Both these herbs avoid formation of gas.

    What is a liver cleanse that you have actually used?
    A doctor told me I need to do a liver cleanse. Is there one that you have actually used? How long did it take? Did you have to be close to a bathroom for more than 24 hours? I have a few weeks to figure out how to do this until I see him again.

    • ANSWER:
      No reputable doctor is going to tell a patient this off the wall treatment.

  3. QUESTION:
    What form of malic acid could I take to replace the 5 green apples per day in a liver cleanse?
    I just finished a 6 day liver cleanse eating 5 green apples per day. I have hypoglycemia and it was too much sugar for me. The malic acid is supposed to soften the gall stones. Can I get the Malic acid in another form to achieve the same softening effect?

    • ANSWER:
      yeah you can get it is magnesium malate (magnesium + malic acid). Found as Ultra Muscleze by Bioceuticals. See a naturopath for it.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is a liver cleanse that you have actually used?
    A doctor told me I need to do a liver cleanse. Is there one that you have actually used? How long did it take? Did you have to be close to a bathroom for more than 24 hours? I have a few weeks to figure out how to do this until I see him again.
    Oh, the doctor didn't say to just do one right away. It has to wait a few more weeks. I just want to know what to expect, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      At Shoppers Drug Mart (Canadian) I did a detox of the liver colon and kidneys called triotox. its a 100% herbal cleanse and it was really easy -3 pills 3 x a day for 14 days with food and a multi vitamin. I could really feel the benefit right away. You will feel slightly sick for a while but that is because your body is adjusting to the cleanse. Drink about 8-10 glasses of water a day while on it or the cleanse will not work so great. Also I found herbal tyea to be stimuolating. I went to the bathroom a slight bit more than usual but it wasnt so bad. just one or 2 extra trips in the night.

      Good luck.

  5. QUESTION:
    How can I do I liver cleanse without the apple/olive oil mix?
    I want to do a liver cleanse but I don't want to do that extreme apple/olive oil lemon juice mixture.

    Is there a way that I can do it with eating certain foods a certain way, slowly over time?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, there are many other ways to heal your liver, such as herbs like milk thistle or specially formulated liver supplements. Livatrex can help you painlessly pass stones like a liver flush with olive oil and lemon juice, but less dramatic.

      Also there is a liver flush that uses eggs, limes, and oil but is really mild. Some people have success with that.

      Changing your diet will help - healthy fats, cruciferous vegetables, whole grains, limiting sugar, eliminating bad fats. Karen Hurd has a protocol of eating legumes to decongest the liver. Just eating a lot of apples will help, one or two daily. The tart ones are best like Jonathan or Granny Smith.

      Daily lemon water also cleanses the liver and kidneys and is easy to add on to whatever you decide.

    • ANSWER:
      Gallbladder and liver excretion is through the intestines, not the bladder.

  7. QUESTION:
    Will doing a colon and liver cleanse reduce the effectiveness of the birth control pill?

      In traditional Eastern European herbal medicine, nettle has been often used in liver cleansing mixtures. You can actually use nettle tea alone, or you can make a herbal mixture by using 20 parts of nettle leaves, 20 parts of taraxacum, 10 parts of horsetail, 5 parts of silver birch leaves and 5 parts of dog rose hips.

      I don't know if all of these plants are available where you live, but you can always stick with nettle.

  9. QUESTION:
    Should a skinny person go on a fast or liver cleanse diet?
    I'm currently on a liver cleanse diet to hopefully remove toxins from my body but the problem is I am skinny. I lose weight easily and by removing many foods from my diet, I feel like I will lose a lot of weight. Should I even be on this diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
      There is no "build up" of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
      Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with "mucoid plaque", we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
      We "cleanse and detox" 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.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      A high fiber diet works every time.
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.

  10. QUESTION:
    Where will my liver gallstones come out of when i do a liver cleanse?
    I have done a colon cleanse, currently on a parasite kill, then i will jump to a liver cleanse by Dr. Hulda Clark Ph.D., N.D.
    I have heard that it hurts when guys urine gallstones, can liver stones be eliminated by the urine or by stole?

    • ANSWER:
      No, you cannot flush gallstones at all. Those are ingredients for a salad dressing.

      If it were that easy, don't you believe that American insurance companies would force patients to use that inexpensive cure instead of going through costly medical surgery? Guess what: there are no peer-reviewed medical studies to show the efficacy of gallstone flushing. It doesn't work!

      Cholecystectomy and ERCP are the only cures for gallstones. They are relatively safe and effective where called for. Some people can survive their entire lives with gallstones. It all depends upon your individual situation and diet.

      See a real medical professional for proper advice.

      I am a survivor of many medical procedures, including cholecycstectomy (gallbladder removal) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography or ERCP for short.

  11. QUESTION:
    Does anybody Know how to do a real liver cleanse ?
    I had my gallbladder removed about 2 months ago. I really would like to do a liver cleanse or diet. I want something effective, that will not harm me in any way. If anyone could help I would be very thank full .

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as a "liver cleanse." The body is excellent at keeping itself clean on the inside.

      Drink a glass of water, and be thankful that some people take science classes and know that such cleansing is nonsense.

  12. QUESTION:
    Can anyone provide me simple and effective colon & liver cleanse recipe please?
    Hi there,
    I am thinking to do a liver cleanse 1st time in my 24 years of my life.After reading a lot of articles,I have learnt that it it is ideal to perform a colon cleanse before doing a liver cleanse.I am hoping that it will be help me in lose weight and also help me with my acne problems.I would really appreciate it if anyone have a simple and effective homemade recipe.Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      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!
      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 added sugar and salt.
      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 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?
      Spend your money in the produce department to speed your detox.
      A healthy diet will also help the acne.
      Good luck and good health.

  13. QUESTION:
    Will doing a colon and liver cleanse reduce the effectiveness of the birth control pill?
    I'm thinking about doing a colon cleanse and then a liver cleanse, but I am taking oral contraceptives and need to know if doing either of these two things will make the pill ineffective for the time being. I don't want to get pregnant!

    • ANSWER:
      I would think a colon cleanse might affect the pill. They say if you get diarrhea for an extended period of time to use a backup method of birth control. And a colon cleanse probably messes up your electrolytes and flushes your system like diarrhea would. I don't know what the liver cleanse is, so I can't answer that one for you. But, a little word of advice: you don't need to do all those "cleansing" things if you're eating right and exercising. Your body is pretty good at getting rid of "toxins" all by itself, and some of those cleansing procedures can really screw up your electrolytes. Just be careful.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural liver cleanse that you have tried and would suggest?
    I've read about a lot of liver cleanses--juice fasts, lemon juice and cayenne, olive oil, epsom salts, herbal mixes, radish juice etc. Is there a natural (not packaged) liver cleanse that you've tried and would suggest?

    • ANSWER:
      Those "liver cleanses" are all a bunch of hoopla over nothing.
      There are some BASIC heathy things you can do for your liver:
      * more water
      * less alcohol and caffeine
      * less fat and animal proteins
      * fewer refined and processed foods
      * more healthful, whole, plant-based foods
      All the rest of is it just a way to sell books and products by making you think they are somehow doing something "special."

      Your liver functions as your liver, removing toxins from the food you eat and the liquids you drink. Over stimulating it by putting extra "toxins" into your body, like cayenne, lemon juice, etc. does not make it work any harder or better, and does NOT "flush your liver out."

      Eat healthy, drink MORE WATER (the biggest non-secret of all), and cut back on pre-processed foods, eating more fresh fruit and vegetables...

      If you do that, you just make it easier for your liver to function, period.
      Eating the "bad" stuff and not drinking enough water will overstress your liver, and no amount of olive oil and cayenne pepper will make things better...

  15. QUESTION:
    Would a liver cleanse help clear up skin psoriasis?
    I heard that sometimes if your liver isn't functioning right you may develop skin psoriasis, and I think that's what might have happened to my boyfriend. So i was just wondering if anyone knows if a liver cleanse would be a good way to clear up psoriasis?

    • ANSWER:
      Its a possibility. The liver and kidneys to have a lot to do with other parts of the body and functions.Try it , there's only one way to find out. Good Luck.

  16. QUESTION:
    Can I do a liver cleanse earlier than 10pm?
    I am doing a liver cleanse - Epsom salts then oil - can I push everything early? Say Epsom salts at 4, 6 and oil at 8?

    • ANSWER:
      Sheer nonsense. This latest fad of "cleansing" is just not healthy. You want to "Cleanse" your body? Just make sure you eat several helpings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day ( frozen counts as fresh), and you will automatically "cleanse".

  17. QUESTION:
    Can a liver cleanse/detoxification clean my body of Depo-Provera?
    I know the liver basically cleanse your body of harmful things. If i do a liver cleanse could this detox my body of Depo-Provera, if so what vitamins should i take or is there anything i can do?

    • ANSWER:
      Let nature (your body) take its own course; i.e., body heal thyself.
      Excretion: MPA is almost exclusively eliminated via hepatic metabolism.

  18. QUESTION:
    Has anyone HERE ever done the Liver Cleanse & Does it really work?
    Hi,

    Has anyone here ever done a Liver Cleanse(by ingesting olive oil & lemon juice)? If so. What happened & did you benefit from it?

    Also can you guide me to a safe guidelines on the net for doing this?

    Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      I did the liver cleanse 5 times in 4 years. I have a very "lazy" gallbladder. I used to have migraines every other day, or one week in a row, tinnitus, and not to mention I was scheduled for surgery(gallbladder).After the first cleanse I felt awesome, and I got rid all of those symptoms. Make sure you take acidophilus for at least one week after this procedure. It balance the friendly bacteria, and make your digestive tract function better.

  19. QUESTION:
    When you take liver cleanse pills, do you also need to limit your diet to vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc?
    I currently purchased Enzymatic Therapy Complete Liver Cleanse. It is a 2 week program (you take 3 pills in the morning and 3 before bedtime). I know that I should not be consuming alcohol while taking the pills, but I am not sure if I should also be on a special diet. I am a vegetarian so I don't consume meat or dairy, but should I also stay away from soy products?

    • ANSWER:
      I know that the pamphlet that comes with that kit mentions a "clean" diet while you are taking the cleanse. Basically-lots & lots of water, low sugar, whole grains, lean protein(including greens & legumes if you don't eat meat), fruits & vegetables. The less processed the better. Generally speaking, unless you're eating edamame, soy is processed to make it into tofu or "meat" etc. So I would definitely limit if not completely eliminate the soy while you're doing the cleanse. Hope that helps!

  20. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural liver cleanse that you have tried and would suggest?
    I've read about a lot of liver cleanses--juice fasts, lemon juice and cayenne, olive oil, epsom salts, herbal mixes, radish juice etc. Is there a natural (not packaged) liver cleanse that you've tried and would suggest?

  22. QUESTION:
    How Long Should a Liver Cleanse Last?
    I'm taking a Milk Thistle blend but not sure how long to take it as the instructions don't cite duration. I'm thinking 10 days at the most---has anyone else done a liver cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      I've never done the milk thistle cleanse but I know there's an olive oil and lemon juice cleanse that you drink before going to bed and it's a one night thing though you can do it again in a few weeks.

      Go ahead, do 10 days and if you're still feeling sluggish then do it again in 2 weeks.

  23. QUESTION:
    How Long Should a Liver Cleanse Last?
    I'm taking a Milk Thistle blend but not sure how long to take it as the instructions don't cite duration. I'm thinking 10 days at the most---has anyone else done a liver cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Stop now. There's no need to cleanse your liver, your body does that naturally. Nothing you do can help your liver. You can instead keep it healthy by moderating your alcohol intake, maintaining a healthy weight and eating a balanced diet.

      I'm afraid you've wasted your money.

  24. QUESTION:
    What is the best full body cleanse recipe?
    Do they really work? A friend has recommended Hulda Clarks Liver cleanse. The problem is I am 30 to 40 pounds over weight. (was 65 pounds). I lost 25 pretty quick now I am 'stuck'. I walk 2 miles a day fast, I do a 35 minute work out. I eat like a bird. Lots of salad, little to no carbs. Haven't lost an ounce in weeks! I feel better but I want the pounds OFF. My friend says a body cleanse might help kick the weight loss back into gear? I am 44, 5.6 and weigh 193. I need to get at least 30 more pounds off to feel comfortable. Will a body cleanse help?
    I tried a body cleanse from the health store and I noticed NO difference in anything.It was called 'Total Body rapid cleanse by Renew Life. Was a waste of money from what I can tell.

    • ANSWER:
      It is very normal to plateau during stages of weight loss, and very disheartening! Just keep up your commitment. Things that help include lemon juice in warm-hot water every morning (like a shower on the inside) - for the first week just have one large glass of hot water with the juice of up to half a lemon (or lime - not orange) first thing. then if you can, go for a walk. Follow with a vegetable juice, preferably carrot, parsley and celery. then have a good breakfast with some protein, but no processed foods. Eat fresh fruit and veg, preferably no meat, but some fish is OK. Definitely no chicken (growth additives to their food make it hard to lose weight if you eat chicken). Cut out dairy. Nuts and green veg will provide the calcium you need. Eat enough to satisfy you, but don't eat if you are not hungry. It is important to eat enough so that your body doesn't go into "starvation mode" and store everything, ie keep up your metabolic rate.

      Before meals have a large teaspoon of psyllium husks mixed in water - the psyllium acts like a broom through the gut, and also fills you so that you won't eat so much.

      From the second week on, start each day with two large glasses of warm water and lemon juice. (2 glasses the first week can make the cleansing process too fast, resulting in headaches and a feeling of nausea)

      As a general rule: breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper - what you eat at night you tend to store on the hips, but starving yourself just makes it easier to gain weight.

      Make sure you drink lots of water!!!! Add some lemon juice to help make it more palatable if you want.

      Before going to bed each night, spend 5 minutes imagining yourself slim, trim and terrific!

      Well done for getting as far as you have, and good luck with the remaining weight loss. Keep healthy and happy with who you are.

      I hope these tips help and wish you all the best.

  25. QUESTION:

  26. QUESTION:
    Does drinking a lot of apple juice negatively affect your liver?
    Does drinking a lot of apple juice negatively affect your liver? My liver feels uncomfortable after I drank a couple glasses of apple juice in the last few days. I researched it and it seems like this is called "liver cleansing". I am not sure if I should get this checked out or not since it is somewhat uncomfortable. I have been using the bathroom plenty in the last few days as well. Which makes me think that it is "liver cleansing".

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think so as it wouldn't be recommended to drink if so (e.g. would have the same reputation as alcohol), however it can cause acid erosion if you drink a lot! x

  27. QUESTION:
    What are some ways I can lower my liver count?
    I was told my liver count is above 200, but should be at 100. I do drink allot, but have been cutting back. I'm only 25, and don't want to be on the fast track to some liver disease. Are their any other liver cleansing techniques I can use?

    • ANSWER:
      There aren't any quick cleanses. I have a problem with my triglycerides (liver count)being to high. You need to go on a low fat diet along with watching your alcohol intake. If you can't do it that way there are medications such as Tricor that your Dr. can prescribe you to help lower them.

  28. QUESTION:
    can you substitute sea salt for epsom salt while on the lemonade master cleanse?
    My friend is starting the lemonade master cleanse. She doesn't know what kind of salt water flush to use and neither do I. She was told to use the sea salt but it wasn't really do the job. So she heard that the Epsom salt would work better but I thought that was used for the liver cleanse. Should she use that or the sea salt. Also what are some brand types for the sea salt?

    • ANSWER:
      You can use either sea or epsom salt for the flush. I would advise using the epsom salts because you will have MUCH better eliminations with the epsom salts.

      I don't know any brand names off hand, but I would suggest shopping at Whole Foods if you happen to have one in your area.

      I would also suggest you read an article on the Master Cleanse. I read it and found the information to be extremely helpful.

      I hope this helps!

    Should I do a Liver Cleanse if my Gallbladder has been removed?
    I read a book and I think my stalled weight loss despite Lap Band surgery, low calorie, lots of exercise and small portions could be due to fatty liver. Want to cleanse it. Have read Fat Flush diet and Ultra Metabolism. Don't want to get sick though. Can I do a cleanse if I have no gallbladder?

    • ANSWER:
      You really can't cleanse the liver and you can't flush fat from it. Where does this stuff come from? Isn't this the 21st century? Shouldn't folks be better informed than to believe this nonsense?

  33. QUESTION:
    How do you use epsom salts on its own as a cleanse for the bowel , liver etc,?
    i have seen the liver cleanse diet using epson salts and olive oil and grapefruite juice , but i don't want to do all that .

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately the whole concept of detox is an urban myth. It is based solely on the irrational rants of constipated Edwardians who refused to eat vegetables as the considered them food only fit for the lower classes to consume. As a result they had little option but to spend their time taking laxatives and purgatives and giving themselves enemas. Provided you have not already done too much damage to your body, your liver and kidneys will deal with problem of removing toxins from your body, as that was what they were designed to do. After that, tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life and you can start afresh.

  35. QUESTION:
    How do I lower my total bilirubin level without the use of medication?
    I recently had a physical, and the results are that my liver panel is too high. According to the laboratory results, my total bilirubin is 1.3. My bilirubin level needs to be within "normal" limits because I am in the process of applying for a position in law enforcement.

    I have 15 days to get rechecked by a doctor and submit my paperwork. How would I get my bilirubin level down to normal limits without the use of over the counter medicines and prescription drugs? I prefer holistic methods, such as the use of total body cleanses. Would a liver cleanse work?

    Thanks to all who answer.

    • ANSWER:
      dear friend
      I used olive oil to lower my bilirubin level. 1 spoonful olive oil every 6 hrs. Ofcourse you can get "milk thisle" extract which does the same effect.

  36. QUESTION:
    Should I do a Liver Cleanse if my Gallbladder has been removed?
    I read a book and I think my stalled weight loss despite Lap Band surgery, low calorie, lots of exercise and small portions could be due to fatty liver. Want to cleanse it.

  37. QUESTION:
    What would cause my period to last for more than a week?
    I am a 26 year old woman and in good physical condition. It's been going for a little over a week now. The only thing different I did that could effect my body was doing a liver cleanse about a week and a half ago. Any ideas what might cause this? I'm a bit perturbed and nervous about it because my mother started saying it could be a sign of pregnancy.

    • ANSWER:
      First off you are not pregnant if you are still bleeding.
      Second off the liver cleanse was foolish and depending on how and what you did could have caused hormonal imbalance.
      Cleanse your liver, kidneys, and digestive system by eating a diet of fresh whole foods and you will "clean" in a matter of days.

  38. QUESTION:
    Can you detoxify your body by just eating the right stuff?
    I've been reading all these articles about liver cleanse and colon cleanse programs. I've been eating tons of trans fats, fast food, preservatives and other crap.
    Now my question is: do you really have to do that kind of stuff, or will keeping a healthy diet make the body detoxify by itself eventually? By healthy diet i mean mostly raw food (including meat).

    • ANSWER:
      A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, gain weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk, heart disease and stroke risk, and have a more positive lifestyle!
      You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
      Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
      First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
      Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
      Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them.
      Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
      Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
      Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
      This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
      I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
      Next, take a basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients. If you are a woman, you may want a plus iron formula.
      Last, you HAVE to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the toxins it contains.
      You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.
      You will get motivated when the changes start happening, I promise.
      Good luck.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest trying cleansing your body. I found cleansing to be the best weight loss program. I have ever tried. I lost 12 pounds in a week and 29 pounds in a month. I feel better since I removed the toxins from my body and shed some unwanted pounds. I did weight watchers, Jenny Craig and Medifast. I found that cleansing was the best since I saw results quickly and that kept me motivated to stick on the program.

    Would a liver cleanse as well as a colon cleanse take away any cravings for sugar?
    I was wondering with any cleanse would it take away any cravings for junk food.

    If so I was going to do one this weekend but I would like to know health perspectives of others!

    • ANSWER:
      There is no therapeutic effect to any colon cleanse or liver cleanse regimen. This is all a marketing ploy. I am a nurse and I work in the Gastroenterology Field. Any Gastro doctor will tell you it's a waste of time and money.

  42. QUESTION:

    Any tested possibilities will get credited in the book... I will pay particular attention to any that you yourself have tried (regardless of if they have worked or not!)

    Cheers!

    • ANSWER:
      Diets don't work. Lifestyle changes do work.

      I'd love to contribute information and experience if you are providing sound guidance to your readers. Make sure to read books by Dr. Dean Ornish for some excellent scientific research on diet. Often, money-making diets are based on speculation rather than scientific research. We are in a profit-driven culture.

      There are many wacky diets out there including some that work (like food combining). This works because you are forced to choose your foods carefully. Read the book "Fit for Life" by the Diamond for information about his less conventional approach.

      The most boring approach is probably the most effective. It's is a low fat vegetarian diet as recommended by Dr. Dean Ornish (a heart specialist). His diet helps prevent high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, some cancers, and Type II diabetes.

      I've had remarkable luck with the following which is my own adaptation:

      + Eat whole grains, brown rice, beans, vegetables, and fruit. Make sure to get a little oil through some vegetarian source like nuts or avocado. Otherwise, minimize fats/oils.

      + Control portion sizes by keeping track of calories. I just keep track in my head. This is a lifestyle change, not a temporary fix. If you eat too few calories or too many calories, this will hurt your diet. Remember that humans evolved through periods of feast and famine. Those who retained body fat during feasts survived. Today, we are in perpetual feast mode and our genetics have not adapted to this.

      + For health, get 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise every day. Look up "aerobic exercise" and "heart rate."

      + For body shape, free weights are great. "Body for Life" is very helpful for body toning exercises. I'd ignore the diet part of this book.

      + Avoid excitotoxins like MSG or aspartame. MSG is fed to laboratory rats to make them fat. These substances have caused neurological damage to laboratory animals. Monsanto is evil (but you cannot publish that fact).

      + Minimize fats (vegetable and animal sources), sugars, refined carbs, milk, meat, and processed foods. Small quantities occasionally are OK. Milk in US usually contains genetically modified bovine growth hormone. Milk is not the best source of calcium, in fact, the proteins can deplete calcium from bones in adult humans. Milk has been linked to childhood diabetes as well. Milk is totally unnecessary for a healthy diet and many people believe dairy is unhealthy (allergies, calories, and intolerance, fats, and proteins).

      The problem is that the most profit can be found by selling the cheapest product that tastes the best. The short-cut are "natural flavors" which are toxic (excitotoxins), refined carbs, and also fats and salt. These make cheap food products that are very tasty and very profitable.

      The truth about food is obscured by heavy handed industry money machines. That includes wackos like the Atkins money machine.

  44. QUESTION:
    I always get sick a few days before my period?
    Every month just before my period I get sick. I normally get a cold or flu. This month I was so tired and ached all over I could barely move. The doctors have suggested taking multi vitamins, I am currently taking liver cleansing tablets which the natropath suggested but still to no avail. I really need some help. I can't tell you how annoying this is. Like other women I also get really hot and sweaty and have some weird dreams. Does any one have any suggestions that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      First off, I think you should stop taking the liver cleansers. Their mostly associated with people trying to pass or prevent stones/stone formation. If you are in fact trying to pass stones then you should stop reading this right now. :O)
      Before your body purges (loss of blood during your cycle), hormones are released in your body. They cause a number of different things to happen as well as invoking a number of different feelings and moods. The blood released in your menstral cycle is seperated from the 5L standard amount of blood in your body. From this we have, mild dehydration, mild to servere iron deficancy and a drop within your immune system's defensive capabilities seeing as how more white blood cells are withheld from your system. The loss of iron might be the root of your unrest. While you might be dehydrated, the fibers within your muscles have less lubrication during actin and myosin's stimulation (shortening and contraction of muscles). This causes fibers to break and the result is muscle pain. Your defense might just be lower then the average females immunal capabilities causing consistant sickness. If your doctor test your blood cell counts while you are not nearing or engaged in your period, something could be missed. I think you should take an iron pill and drink more water. Not an ungodly amount of water, just more water in general. The cleansers might be causing your body to purge things it shouldn't or doesn't need to be releasing. Being overweight, having an STD, asthma, smoking or even mild depression can add or create these symptoms as well and given I don't know your medical history, I can't be sure that anything that I tell you will work. Get a second opinion from a doctor you haven't seen before. Small practice doctors tend to be more mindful and follow up more often then PCF's at medical centers or hospitals. Hormones cause the weird dreams unless your dreaming of me because thats just pure lust!! (Joking :O) hahaha)
      Try the iron tabs. They might not fully cut back on your colds but I think it might help your feeling tired. A little more exercise helps as well to strengthen your immune system and muscles. Also, drink juices with a large concentrated (I don't mean a drink thats "from or not from concentrate) dosage of Vitamin C to boost your immune system before your period. Not to much though, you should see what 500% the daily recommended value of Vit-C does to a frogs heart. LoL. Good luck to you, hope the info helps a little. Sorry if its to much also :O).

  45. QUESTION:
    liver cleanse / detox without a gallbladder?
    I want to do a liver cleanse / detox (the one with epsom salt, then olive oil, apple juice every 2 hours etc), but had my gallbladder removed. Is this something I can still do without a gallbladder? It sounds like this process helps get rid of gallstones, but I thought there were only gallstones in the gallbladder, not in the liver too? please advise nurses or doctors!
    thanks :)
    alice - nothing about livers on the site.

    • ANSWER:
      'Liver cleanses' and 'gallbladder flushes' are not advisable. Firstly, it's impossible to 'cleanse' or 'flush' the liver or the gallbladder with anything. Nothing that you swallow enters your gallbladder at any point in the digestive process, and by the time any nutrients from your drink reach your liver, they will not be in a form that have any cleansing effect. The process does not get rid of gallstones, and drinking oil is very, VERY stupid for someone who has gallstones as fatty foods aggravate the problem and can cause a lot of pain and inflammation.

      Also, no, gallstones are not present in the liver. They can pass from the gallbladder into the stomach (which tends to be very painful - trust me, I've experienced it) but not into the liver. There are no stones in your liver. If you want a healthy liver, drinking epsom salts, olive oil and apple juice is not going to help you in the slightest, and will simply make you feel ill and cause you to pass lumps of undigested solidified oil in your excrement (which people often mistake for 'stones' - hence the myth that this 'detox' flushes out gallstones).

      If you want a healthy liver, then eat healthily, don't consume too much saturated fat and only drink alcohol in moderation. It really is that simple. 'Liver cleansing' is a quack remedy that achieves nothing, and will likely make you feel nauseous and do you more harm than good.

      Think about it: if it was possible to cleanse the liver in this way, doctors would recommend it and health insurance companies would make do this cheap process rather than paying out for them to have bona fide medical treatment.

  46. QUESTION:
    When is it bad to do a liver cleanse?
    I know a fellow that intends to quit drinking in the New Year.I think he should wait a month or two before doing the cleanse.He thinks the sooner the better.He has 18-20 beers nightly. I believe he should heal a little first. I welcome your opinions.Merry Christmas to all.

    • ANSWER:
      Baa-Baa is right regarding the liver cleanse... His liver will cleanse itself if he can just quit tormenting it.

      What is very important is, that he taper down a bit before going cold turkey. Going from 20 drinks a day to zero all at once is very dangerous if it isn't done with medication. Benzo's, Librium, Valium, Xanax etc will greatly reduce the trauma of quitting. Doctors are wary about prescribing these meds to someone who admits he is still drinking, but if you go with him to his doctor and promise you will only allow him to take these meds if he is sober, the doc may agree to give him some.

      Without Benzo's, he must taper back for a period of about a week if he doesn't want to risk seizures and possible death. Get some non-alcoholic beer and let him start on this during the day or early evening. Allow him only 12 light beers per night for 2 days or so; then 8, then 6. Once he's down to 6 light beers per night for a few days, it's probably safe to make the jump to sobriety.

      He should be taking vitamin B-Complex, before, during, and after his reduction/quitting. This can prevent some of the more dangerous effects of withdrawal. If he becomes very ill, or acts strangely during this process, he must be seen by a doctor at once.

      Good Luck & GodSpeed to you both!

  47. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried liver cleansing with epsom salt, olive oil, grapefruit juice?
    Liver cleanse supposedly get rid of gall stone, cures fatigue, improves brain function, is it true, does it work? Is it safe?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't drink epsom salts. Read the label for warnings. The olive oil and grapefruit juice won't hurt you unless you have an allergy or are taking medication that is incompatible with grapefruit juice (some meds should not be taken with grapefruit juice.)

  48. QUESTION:
    How long does it take your liver to detox?
    I've been unhealthy for a while now. I eat fast food, take sleep aids, and drink alcohol on a regular basis.
    Bottom line, my liver isn't in peak condition.

    My question is how long does it take the liver to naturally cleanse itself? Does the length of an unhealthy lifestyle complicate the process?

    • ANSWER:
      You've been sucked into a bunch of garbage pseudoscience. Your liver is constantly detoxifying the substances you put into it. Within a few hours of consuming alcohol, your liver has broken it down to harmless compounds and prepared it for excretion from the body.
      Stop thinking in terms of "cleansing" the body. You've been abusing your body with this disgusting lifestyle, but that doesn't mean that you're "dirty," only that your body is overworked and run-down.

  49. QUESTION:
    are there any dangers to doing a gall bladder and liver cleanse?
    and is it essential to do a bowel (colon) cleanse first and if so for how long?

    • ANSWER:
      I have done this cleanse and I have to say the benefits are worth it.
      If you do one of the more radical over night cleanses just be aware that the toxins will be released through your system really fast and all those toxins going through your intestines at once for me any way it felt like flue symptoms.
      But by the middle of the next day I hadn't felt that good in years.
      As a precaution I made sure somebody close knew what I was up to and I don't think any lasting harm is likely to come from it but I think that is a good precaution.
      I still have my Gall bladder three years later and I feel great.

  50. QUESTION:
    Gallbladder liver cleanse versus gallbladder removal?
    My Uncle has lots of gallstones and is wondering how well the liver cleanse works and is it worth going through the pain? Is it better to try the liver cleanse first, before going through surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      (ANS) No.1 The fact that stones form inside the gall bladder is directly related to how the body handles fatty (rich) foods. The formation of gall stones is dietary related but also there is a genetic element to someone getting stones forming i.e. possibly a family history?

      No.2 Obviously it makes complete sense to try a liver cleansing first if this is what the GP or consultant has recommended. DON'T try this if it hasn't actually been formally suggested.

      No.3 My dad had his gall bladder removed completely & the body can deal quite OK! once its been taken out. My best friend had the stones removed by surgery i.e. day surgery. because her stones were far too large to be passed from the body in the normal way. Passing stones can be excruciatingly painful I believe. Removal via surgery is far far the best option as I understand this.

      Best Regards Ivan.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the healthiest foods for rapid detox and weight loss?
    I would like to go on a cleanse and start a healthy regimen for the new year. What are the best foods/combinations to do a detox and then a weight loss regimen? Are these cleansers like Puristat a bunch of hog wash or are they any good? I know to keep a low carb, low sugar, low fat diet, but are there any super food secrets I should know? Or juicing recipes that are great? Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      I was just watching a segment on channel 3 news in Cleveland OHio about detoxing... I tried one that really did seem to work well... as long as I followed it to the t... which I didn't

      Anyway the segment basicially said that all the detox systems on the shelves aren't worth a whole lot, and basicially don't do a whole lot as a matter of fact when they contacted the companies they couldn't even tell you what detoxing is.... interesting

      anyway at the end of the segment all she said was that PLENTY of water and TONS of greens (veggies that are green... the greener the better)... I would add to that myself spices.. like cayenne pepper or the like or maybe some tabassico sauce (great metabo booster as well)

      I'm not saying that the detox boxes don't work but if you want a decent on your going to have to pay upwards 50 bucks.... and you may have a decent system that will work pretty effectivetly...

      also there is also the master clense diet... which is water lemon (squeeze in the water) a table spoon of maple syrup, and a table spoon of cayanne pepper.... 3 times a day, with 8 ounces of water...
      this is a fasting cleanse so you don't eat for 3-5 days depending.... but it doesn't detox... it just makes you poo and starve... but you lose the weight...

      I'd recommend TONS of WATER and GREEN VEGGIES.... stick to that for about 2 weeks (qhich is what a detox program calls for) your clean yourself out and be ready for a great start to a new life... P.S. as an added bonus----- you can take the money that you would have spent and go get yourself a colonic...yum.,

    will a Colonic help me tighten my midsection?
    I'm trying to lose the last 15 or so pounds and I've been working out and dieting for a while but my midsection isn't where I want it to be. I read that cleansing your colon can help you lose up to 15 pounds and shave about an inch off your stomach.

    Is this true? Would a colonic help me with my weight loss goals?

      Yes. It is very good for you. Make sure where you have it done that they know what they are doing. Don't do kit from the store. Get it done professionally. Good luck and God bless you always.

  4. QUESTION:
    How safe and effective are colonics? What are the benefits and do they outweigh the risks?
    I have read info about colonics from websites selling their products promising everything from weight loss to headache relief and everything in between, and I know the FDA's negative stand on colonics (as well as most herbal / alternative medicines ), but I would love to hear from someone who has actually done one and experienced any results or harmful effects.

    • ANSWER:
      I had a friend who did it and was pleased with the results. I plan on having one done when I go back to the states in May.

      While it is possible to loose weight from the procedure, this is not the main goal. The main goal of the procedure is to remove parasites from the colon.

      Colonic irrigation is also known as hydrotherapy of the colon, high colonic, entero-lavage, or simply colonic. It is the process of cleansing the colon by passing several gallons of water through it with the use of special equipment. It is similar to an enema but treats the whole colon, not just the lower bowel. This has the effect of flushing out impacted fecal matter, toxins, mucous, and even parasites, that often build up over the passage of time. It is a procedure that should only be undertaken by a qualified practitioner.

      The cost of colonic irrigation treatments varies, but is generally between -70 per session, which may last from 45 minutes to one hour.

    What is that pill that Kevin Trudeau mentions in his books for weight loss?
    Kevin Trudeaus mentions weight loss pills.

    • ANSWER:
      kevin trudeau is a snake oil salesman. he's been to prison for it, and his initial nutritional scam was started with another inmate. it seems like every few months he comes up with something new to con people with. in 2004 he was fined 2 million dollars for his coral calcium bs, and he will most likely be fined or imprisoned again because in nov of this year he was found in contempt of the 2004 judgment by misrepresenting his recent books. the actual diet he is marketing requires eating only organic food, colonic & liver cleansing, and a 2nd phase of daily hcg shots at the doctor.

  6. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to have colon cancer so young?
    My husband has every symptom listed of colon cancer except for weight loss, but he is only 31 years old. This just can't be right... I made him get checked out today and now we are just waiting for a specialist to to look at his colon next week.

    • ANSWER:
      Colon cancer can occur at any age, but the symptoms are far more commonly displayed by lesser illnesses. Colonic cancers are more prevalent in older patients, but there has been an increase in the number of younger patients who follow a western style diet high in processed foods.

      "Common illnesses are common" is one of the first things quoted to medical students, and there are many common ailments which singly or in combination can cause all of the symptoms of colonic cancer. Accurate diagnosis involves taking tissue samples for microscopic examination and the process in which this is done can be a bit uncomfortable but is not painful.

      The internet and self-diagnosis can in many ways be more worrying than the illness itself. Stop assuming it's cancer and let the expert make a diagnosis. Even if your worst fears are realised, then early detection and modern treatment ensure a high survival rate; treatments have dramatically improved even in the three years that I've been interested in oncology.

  7. QUESTION:
    What is a good, safe colon cleanse, detox product?
    There are many products that claim to cleanse your colon and remove pounds of accumulated you know what. These products are promoted through spam emails as weight loss products and mostly contain herbs and act as mild laxatives, but are there any true products that could help to cleanse your body and available without a prescription?

    • ANSWER:
      There's a lot of pseudoscience insisting that toxic levels of waste build up in the colon, 'poisoning' you. It's total hogwash, without medical merit.

      What will a colonic or a colon-cleansing product do for you? It'll empty the colon, for very short-term weight loss of waste that would have worked its way out over the next day or two. If you suffer from hemorrhoids, it may soften the stool to allow it to pass more comfortably. If you happen to be constipated, either one will solve the problem, temporarily.

      The con is that it's absolutely unnecessary. You'd be better off eating whole grains, plenty of fruit and vegetables, and drinking enough to be properly hydrated all the time. In addition, in many states there's no regulation or training of those who administer colonics, so the potential for unsantiary equipment or injury is present.

  8. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a homemade colonic?
    I would like a homemade colonic. Not the pills that you buy in stores. I want one to use every week or two weeks for cleansing during weight loss. Does any one have a recipe or something?

  10. QUESTION:
    How many calories should I eat to lose weight??
    I have gotten alot of great nutrition advice, but what I would like to know is how many calories I should be eating if I want to lose weight?
    -I weigh, saddly, about 200lbs
    -I am 5'8 and a 17 year old girl
    My goal is 45-50lbs
    Please no rude comments. Any helpful answers appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      cut about 200 calories from what you're eating, no more than that. The KEY to losing weight isn't cutting "calories". The KEY is to EAT HEALTHIER FOOD, eat hot peppers to speed up metabolism, and to exercise-

      (run to lose weight and burn fat and speed up metabolism, play sports- WITHOUT SPORTS UR BODY DOESN'T FEEL A COMPETITION, SO IT WON'T POOP OUT UNNECESSARY CALORIES, WHICH IS WHAT A COMPETITIVE PERSON'S BODY DOES!, and lift weights a couple times a week, so you shape your body as well.)

      Do all of this, and I GUARANTEE you will lose the weight, and if you keep doing this, you will NOT get sick, like if you were "dieting"- you will get SEXIER, FITTER, SLIMMER, STRONGER, BETTER LOOKING, AND HEALTHIER EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE!

      These options REALLY work tho- the NORMAL, NATURAL ways that you're supposed to lose weight. These are:

      1) exercise! That little word fat people hate. Sorry girl, but you should run 2 miles around the track 3 times a week, run 5 400m sprints twice a week, and do a sport like swimming or basketball. also, lift some weights, reps of 20, at the gym.

      2) eat healthy! this includes...

      3) eat 5 small portioned, really nutrition-packed meals a day.

      4) eat a BIG breakfast! eat 2 eggs and cereal with whole milk. anything you eat for breakfast will NOT be stored to fat if you exercise- it takes only 8 hours to digest and crap food, and much longer for a day to go by.

      5) eat the 5 food groups- veggies and fruits are most important for girls, as they dont workout as hard as guys on average. then after that, dairy, meat, and bread food groups are all equally important.

      6) never eat any fast food, junk food, fried food, microwaved food, candy, chips, etc.

      7) EAT 2 HOT PEPPERS W/ DINNER 3 TIMES A WEEK! these speed up metabolism, enabling you to burn more fat and calories.

      8) get 9 hours of sleep a night- this will help healthy weight loss and promote stronger muscles and bones, make u more awake, and basically help u in EVERY ASPECT OF UR LIFE- yes, including weight loss as well.

      9) NEVER drink sodas, or have caffeine from anything, or ever take ANY artificial sweeteners! They are DEADLY CHEMICALS! you know sucralose (splenda)? it has 3 chlorine atoms (out of 4 total atoms!) it is TOXIC! it makes you GAIN weight, and kills your internal organs, makes you lazy, and addicted to it!

      10) eat NATURAL food- from wholefoods! today's foods have so many artificial chemicals, additivies, etc. that they are literally toxic- yes, I'm using that word again, cuz it so accurately describes the food. Go to wholefoods- or at LEAST get the healthiest, NATURALEST stuff you can from places like giant or safeway.

      11) Get a colonic- this will clean out yo butt! literally! lol it sounds awkward, but its natural.

      12) the healthiest meats are tuna, fish, eggs, steak, turkey, and chicken. (MAINLY THE 1ST 3)

  11. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had colonic irrigation privately in the UK?
    I'm thinking of having it for weight loss and to cure flatulence. Is it any good? Do you have to get undressed? I heard Princess Di had it

    • ANSWER:
      It neither contributes to weight loss nor offers a cure for flatulence. If you think about it for 10 seconds why should it? If it helped to lose weight don't you think everyone would be inserting the shower hose into their rectum an a daily basis for free?

  12. QUESTION:
    can you give me your experiences on losing weight by drinking water?
    -how much weight have you lost by drinking water?
    -did you fast on water or is this your lifestyle?
    -do you eat at all? or just drink water?
    -do you feel weak?
    -how do you have the self control to just drink water, if thats all youve been taking in?
    -can you give me a water plan you have used that has worked?

    • ANSWER:
      Oh the ignorance of these other answers <3

      Let me take you about 3 years back to January 5th, 2007. This is the day that I found out that I had Acute Leukemia. I was 15 years old.

      I've always been big into nutrition. Ever since I was about 8, I've felt that the human body is amazing and wanted to know everything it's capable of.

      I remembered reading somewhere about cases of cancer patients unintentionally fasting because they were too weak to eat, and because of it, diminishing their trace of abnormal cancer cells. Patients had been put on intentional water fasts and almost all of them had been completely cured. The others saw a dramatic improvement but their cancer was too severe for the body to completely repair itself.

      Anyways, almost immediately I started a fast. Water. Nothing else. No toothpaste, no nail bitings, NOTHING that could be ingested and disrupt the "detox" or repairing properties of a fast.

      The first two days were full of tummy grumbles. I had IBS so I got nauseous from my stomach acids jumping around in there lol.

      Before I go any further, my doctor highly disproved of water fasting for longer than 3 days. But I expected that. In my opinion, anyone working for the government is after money, not your safety or general well-being.

      For the first 10 days, I did enemas each morning to help with the "detoxing" of my liver and shizzzz. I hate the insertion part, but everything following it is great lol.

      After day 3, my tummy grumbles stopped completely.

      Side Note: I drank like 200 oz. of water a day. It's NOT necessary. Again: Tons of water is NOT necessary. Get in your 6-8 cups and you're good. However, I do suggest a bottle of SmartWater every other day to replenish electrolytes (the biggest concern people have with long-term fasting.)

      On days 10-18, I broke up in pimples. Cute, right? But it's a detox symptom. Your body rids itself of "toxins" through sweat, urine/fecal matter and through the skin in the form of acne.

      Days 19-42 were easy. I got a colonic on day 34, 35, 38 and 39. That in itself caused a weight loss of 12 pounds.

      On day 43, I broke my water fast with 4 oz. of organic diluted carrot juice.

      If you're wondering about weight, I lost 56 pounds, putting me at 104 pounds, standing 5'5.

      I have not gained any weight back because I've eating properly.

      On to the medical reason for fasting... I told my Oncologist what I did and he was not happy. I told him that I'd felt more energized and alert and I was in virtually no pain as opposed to the constant aching I'd experienced before the fast.

      He did my blood work. a few EKG's and your average "check-up" things like blood pressure at that visit. About a week later, I got a call asking me to come into his office because he wanted to talk to me.

      Scared out of my mind that I'd been the "exception" to cures and fasting, and had actually FURTHERED my Leukemia, tried to remain calm.

      I went into his office expecting to be granted 2 months to live. He greeted me and my father with a smile and---long story short---he explained that there are NO signs that I ever had Leukemia, asthma, type 2 diabetes OR chronic eczema. He compared me to a clean slate. I had virtually NO medical conditions.

      On top of this MIRACLE, ever since those acne detox symptoms passed on day 20, I no longer suffer from severe acne. I don't even break out. EVER. I have not had ONE zit in 3 years.

      I was clinically depressed and suicidal. I haven't felt even remotely close to that in forever!

      Fasting saved my life and I hate that it gets a bad rep.

      I hope I shined some light on how amazing our bodies are <3

      God bless you

      PS: If you're truly interested in water fasting, I suggest "Fasting and Eating for Health" by Joel Fuhrman. It's the equivalent to the Bible for me.

  13. QUESTION:
    What detox products can I find at the Supermarket?
    I need to lose some weight before I go back to college again. I'm eating healthier and going to the gym at least 2 hrs. But I want to lose weight a bit faster by detoxing. What products are good to detox? Is it green tea good? Or do you know any other products that sell in the supermarket? Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      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!

  14. QUESTION:
    Should I do a colon cleanse before I start my weight loss regime?
    Kind of like a kick start?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You're going to "kick start" weight loss by giving yourself diarrhea? That's an awfully bad start, don't you think?

      There is no science to back the claims that "colon cleanses" work except that they give you diarrhea. First and foremost, there is no "accumulated fecal matter" in your colon. Your body does a tremendously efficient job at removing anything and everything from there. Otherwise, it would be a pool for colonic bacteria to begin multiplying exponentially to the point where they could cause infection.

      All the cleanse does is to a.) mud butt, b.) give you potential electrolyte imbalance, and c.) wipes out all the colonic bacteria - which are beneficial by metabolizing toxins and producing/releasing nutrients, amongst other functions.

      If you are having trouble passing stools use a gentler laxative like psyllium husk or metamucil - better yet, eat more vegetables with insoluble fibers, which add bulk and reduce transit time. Caffeine also has a mild laxative effect by stimulating GI movement.

      To "kickstart" your diet how about a huge salad?

  15. QUESTION:
    What are the very early symptoms of colon cancer?
    My mother died from this when she was 31, as she was diagnosed too late. I'm 20 and have just been diagnosed with a possibility of having Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Seeing as I've heard colonic cancer is genetic, should I be getting checked out the possibility of cancer?

    Also, for people who have suffered from colon cancer- what were the earliest symptoms that you got?
    I don't mean to sound like a hypochondriac-it's just I don't want to find out too late like my mother did.

    • ANSWER:
      The problem with colon cancer is that it shows no symptoms at early stages. It only starts showing when it's advanced. The symptoms are:

      - Blood flecks in your stools, particularly if the blood is dark or plum-coloured. This is the most commonly noticed symptom and should never be ignored.
      - A change in your regular bowel habits, such as constipation or diarrhoea, that's severe or lasts for two weeks or more.
      - Abdominal pain or discomfort that lasts for two weeks or more.
      - Unexplained weight loss.

      To get cancer at a young age it is most likely genetic. I'm going to see a genetic doctor because I was diagnosed at 20. If any close relative has had colon cancer at a young age, you should ensure your doctor rules that out, instead of diagnosing you without any tests for cancer. I was told I probably have IBS, but luckily, she wanted to do more tests to be on the safe side. Although some people do get it at a young age without there being a genetic factor involved.

  16. QUESTION:
    Does a colonic help with bad breath?
    Its not just for weight loss is it?

    Doesn't it cleanse your body of toxins/waste?

    Can it help for bad breath?

    • ANSWER:
      no, no, no. Go and see your dentist

  17. QUESTION:
    Colonic Therapy & weight loss, has it worked for anyone here?
    I am very curious about this subject.

    Does it have to be a full on colonic treatment or can you do something similar with enema treatments?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can use a series of enemas and get very similar results, as long as you take them in different positions. Colonic irrigation is expensive these days, about to 0 each and you need a series of 3 to 5. A two quart enema bag runs under and lasts for years.

  18. QUESTION:
    Do laxatives and colonic irrigation really work in weight loss, if you keep hydrated, or just temporarily?
    I don't have time to go to a gym, only managing an hours walk each day, which hasn't helped one iota

    • ANSWER:
      Neither have any lasting effects. An hours walk is not going to do much,however if you spend that hour exercising vigorously in the gym and reduced your calorie intake you might get somewhere.

  19. QUESTION:
    Why do a lot of fighters drop an enourmous amount of weight the day before the weigh in?
    or a few days leading up to the weigh in? how do they even do this??? i suppose a lot is water weight but i still dont know how thats possible.

    explain
    Why not just diet over a longer period of time and gradually make weight...?

    • ANSWER:
      it often takes more than just one day before weigh-in, but they do it to officially make the lower weight class for the match, and removing a layer of fat/water that is on the top layer of the body allows for more definition to be seen in a fighter's muscles (makes the person look better on camera).

      Those that diet over a longer period of time often have more endurance during a match and do not "gas-out" as quickly as the fighters who drop a lot of weight all at once. However, the fighters that are successful with a quick weight-loss plan generally have more muscle on their bodies and are stronger during their matches.

      There are a few ways to make the quick weight loss possible including:
      * a natural diuretic to shed water weight.
      * an enema or colonic to remove all excess fecal matter from the colon.
      * heavy aerobic exercise to increase the amount of sweat released by the body.

  20. QUESTION:
    Can i cleanse my colon without using a colon cleanser?
    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.

  21. QUESTION:
    How much does a colonic cost? Does it hurt?
    Is there really weight loss benefits to a colonic? Health benefits? I

    • ANSWER:
      I have colonics on a monthly basis and feel detoxed and clean.. I don't have any problems with my bowel movements but do certainly feel the benefits from the regular treatments.

      Sure it can hurt but it is like any exercise program which strengthens a weak muscle. Colonics work on improving gut peristalsis so you will find that your body will process food and eliminate waste more effectively. This can assist in weight loss as at any time we can have up to 8 meals in our digestive system. I have known people to weigh up to 1.5 kgs lighter following a single colonic treatment.

      The large colon is the sewer pipe of the body and poo sitting in there puts toxins back in our bodies. We need to cleanse this out to detox. Any cleanse program is of limited use if the body is toxic and the bowel does not eliminate effectively

      There are different systems around but the best one is an open system where water is gravity fed and your body controls the flow. Check qualifications of therapist and the type of equipment used before you book in.

      Well worth it.

    Does a colonic or body wrap really help you lose weight?
    Just curious to if these two things help with weight loss. Has anyone had good results?

  23. QUESTION:
    How can i lose 25 pounds and keep it off?
    I am 5'3 and i weigh 150lbs. I want to lose the weight but i dnt wanna be flabby. I want to be slim and toned. Please Help!!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm an athletic trainer, and I know alot about proper nutrition, exercising, and ways to lose weight. the answer to this is:

      NOT dieting or diet pills- pills or dieting don't keep the weight off, make you weak, depressed, and sometimes fatter, and can harm you with internal organ damage or other side effects.

      The answer is good old-fashioned work, with very healthy eating, and new natural ways to lose weight (like eating hot peppers to speed metabolism, getting a colonic, etc.) READ ON.

      Do THIS:
      ===========================================
      cut about 200 calories from what you're eating, no more than that. The KEY to losing weight isn't cutting "calories". The KEY is to EAT HEALTHIER FOOD, eat hot peppers to speed up metabolism, and to exercise-

      (run to lose weight and burn fat and speed up metabolism, play sports- WITHOUT SPORTS UR BODY DOESN'T FEEL A COMPETITION, SO IT WON'T POOP OUT UNNECESSARY CALORIES, WHICH IS WHAT A COMPETITIVE PERSON'S BODY DOES!, and lift weights a couple times a week, so you shape your body as well.)

      Do all of this, and I GUARANTEE you will lose the weight, and if you keep doing this, you will NOT get sick, like if you were "dieting"- you will get SEXIER, FITTER, SLIMMER, STRONGER, BETTER LOOKING, AND HEALTHIER EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE!

      These options REALLY work tho- the NORMAL, NATURAL ways that you're supposed to lose weight. These are:

      1) exercise! That little word fat people hate. Sorry girl, but you should run 2 miles around the track 3 times a week, run 5 400m sprints twice a week, and do a sport like swimming or basketball. also, lift some weights, reps of 20, at the gym.

      3) eat 5 small portioned, really nutrition-packed meals a day.

      4) eat a BIG breakfast! eat 2 eggs and cereal with whole milk. anything you eat for breakfast will NOT be stored to fat if you exercise- it takes only 8 hours to digest and crap food, and much longer for a day to go by.

      6) never eat any fast food, junk food, fried food, microwaved food, candy, chips, etc.

      7) EAT 2 HOT PEPPERS W/ DINNER 3 TIMES A WEEK! these speed up metabolism, enabling you to burn more fat and calories.

      8) get 9 hours of sleep a night- this will help healthy weight loss and promote stronger muscles and bones, make u more awake, and basically help u in EVERY ASPECT OF UR LIFE- yes, including weight loss as well.

      9) NEVER drink sodas, or have caffeine from anything, or ever take ANY artificial sweeteners! They are DEADLY CHEMICALS! you know sucralose (splenda)? it has 3 chlorine atoms (out of 4 total atoms!) it is TOXIC! it makes you GAIN weight, and kills your internal organs, makes you lazy, and addicted to it!

Go to wholefoods- or at LEAST get the healthiest, NATURALEST stuff you can from places like giant or safeway.

      11) Get a colonic- this will clean out yo butt! literally! lol it sounds awkward, but its natural.

      12) the healthiest meats are tuna, fish, eggs, steak, turkey, and chicken. (MAINLY THE 1ST 3)

    what is the best safe natural way to cleanse your colon?
    I am wanting to do a colon cleanse, but they kinda scare me. Even when they safe it's all natural, I am a little skeptical.. Just because it's natural doesn't make it safe.

  25. QUESTION:
    How can I lose 5 pounds in 2 and a half weeks?
    I am a gymnast and I need to lose 5 pounds in order to get mor stamina for my routines. I am currently 5'1 and 105, please do not say I don't need to lose weight. 5 pounds is all I want to lose and it will make a HUGE difference. I try to eat healthy for the most part. Today I kinda went off my diet, but I did good yesterday and the day before. I work out on my stationary bike for 45 minutes like 3 days a week, and I have my gymnastics practices, but I have hit a plateu and need to drop these last 5 pounds. Thanks!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      I'd imagine that since you are a gymnast you are already in pretty good shape so I'd imaginge that you can only really hope to lose water weight or weight stored up from intestinal/colonic deposits. If you can stomach a decent diet plan for the 2 and 1/2 weeks paired with the following info, you should have a good chance at achieving your goal.

      That being said I'll start with the latter since it's the easiest. Go to a spa you trust and get a colonic. Plain and simple. Most people on average have 3-5 pounds of "stored waste" trapped in their lower intestine. Over time this can add up. One man had 26 pounds of "stored waste" over his 47 years, ranging from crayons he ate as a child, to a penny, and pieces of barely digested food. DO NOT try this yourself with laxitives or extreme colon cleansers from the store, this will only dehydrate you and possibly land you in the hospital. The taboo about colonics is highly overrated. The procedure doesn't hurt like most say it does. It can get a little uncomfortable at times if you've air/gas deposits that will impede the flow of water but those are massaged away and the water moves on. Easy day. This will most likely be the "easier" of the two choices for losing weight quick.

      Now for the "fun" one. The one that requires some work. I would recommend starting each day with a cup or two of black coffee. Don't over do it and drink an entire pot as this will only dehydrate you and work against you in the long run for this plan. Make sure the coffee is black. If you add any creamers or sugars it will only work against you in this water weight/caloric battle. After you've finished your cup(s) of joe, follow up with a 20 - 30 minute moderately intense cardio routine. Elliptical, treadmill, stair climber, track, bike, etc..... you get the picture. This will get your system kickstarted to be burning calories all day long. It's been proven that 20 - 30 min. of cardio in the morning will allow your body to burn almost twice the calories in a day, vice not doing cardio in the morning. On top of this routine I would recommend getting one of those trash-bag-esque sweat suits to aid in caloric burn and water loss. Be careful though. These suits will increase your bodies internal temperature thus causing your sweat MUCH more, wear thick socks =], so be sure to hydrate adequately. I personally recommend a 50/50 water/gatorade mix. The water will obviously hydrate and quench thirst and the gatorade will replace much needed electrolytes. Gatorade alone will dehydrate more than help. I'd recommend the lime gatorade rain. It's light and flavorful, will add just a hint of flavor to your bottle of water and only has something like 80 calories for a whole bottle.

      This teamed up with smaller meals 4-6 times a day, vice 3 regular meals a day will keep your metabolism going strong and burning calories all day long. If you use an appetite suppressent (Hydroxycut, Ripped Fuel, etc.....) this will also aid in "cravings". Don't eat after 8 p.m. and allow up to 2 hours before bed for food to digest, so that you're not just packing on more calories and fat. Stay away from fast food for the 2 and 1/2 weeks and focus on salads and protiens. Tuna is an excellent choice. Skimp on salad dressings and toppings. Also most sodas and juices are packed with empty calories and sugars. If diet is your thing Diet Coke, etc... are a good alternative, with only 1 calorie it is almost like an inert substance. =]

      Add another cardio routine mid day to early evening time frame for 30-45 minutes without the sweat suit and with the gatorade/water mix and you should be ok by weeks end. Best of luck, I hope this helps. =]

  26. QUESTION:
    What is the difference between an enema and colonic irrigation?

    • ANSWER:
      An enema generally reaches only the lower part of the colon. You can, with a bit of practice, get the liquid higher into the colon however you are only putting a litre or so of water in at a time. A colonic on the other hand uses more water and it fills the entire colon, gently dilating the colon which aids the release of matter. A colonic is far more effective and leaves you feeling cleaner and leaner with a sense of wellbeing. Clients get all sorts of benefits from colonics including clearer skin and eyes, weight loss, better sleep, more energy, greatly improved bowel function etc.

  28. QUESTION:
    What are the symptoms of colon cancer, and what are the symptoms of stomach cancer?
    How can you know if you have one of these diseases?

    what is the survival rates for both diseases?

    • ANSWER:
      Rule of thumb: any bleeding from lower gastro-intestinal tract causes bleeding PR (fresh, red-colored blood) and any upper GI bleeding causes malena( passing of black, tarry, sticky stools). By this, we can generally say gastric cancer would present as:
      malena, weight loss, anemia, and hematemesis( vomiting of blood)
      and colonic cancer would present as:
      bleeding PR(per-rectum), weight loss, anemia and tenusmus( feeling of wanting to defecate frequently but passing only small amount of stools on each occasion)
      I'm not sure about the survival rates, but as far as I know, gastric cancers are more serious.

  29. QUESTION:
    A couple questions on water fasting please help?
    how much weight will i lose if i do a water fast for 2 and a half weeks?
    will i gain the weight back once i get off the fast?
    and will i start to gain more weight once i get off of it or will i stay the same?
    i dont want to gain anymore weight so thats what im wondering..
    im 5'4 and 145-150 pounds.

    • ANSWER:
      I LOVE this question!

      Let me take you about 3 years back to January 5th, 2007. This is the day that I found out that I had Acute Leukemia. I was 15 years old.

      I've always been big into nutrition. Ever since I was about 8, I've felt that the human body is amazing and wanted to know everything it's capable of.

      I remembered reading somewhere about cases of cancer patients unintentionally fasting because they were too weak to eat, and because of it, diminishing their trace of abnormal cancer cells. Patients had been put on intentional water fasts and almost all of them had been completely cured. The others saw a dramatic improvement but their cancer was too severe for the body to completely repair itself.

      Anyways, almost immediately I started a fast. Water. Nothing else. No toothpaste, no nail bitings, NOTHING that could be ingested and disrupt the "detox" or repairing properties of a fast.

      The first two days were full of tummy grumbles. I had IBS so I got nauseous from my stomach acids jumping around in there lol.

      Before I go any further, my doctor highly disproved of water fasting for longer than 3 days. But I expected that. In my opinion, anyone working for the government is after money, not your safety or general well-being.

      For the first 10 days, I did enemas each morning to help with the "detoxing" of my liver and shizzzz. I hate the insertion part, but everything following it is great lol.

      After day 3, my tummy grumbles stopped completely.

      Side Note: I drank like 200 oz. of water a day. It's NOT necessary. Again: Tons of water is NOT necessary. Get in your 6-8 cups and you're good. However, I do suggest a bottle of SmartWater every other day to replenish electrolytes (the biggest concern people have with long-term fasting.)

      On days 10-18, I broke up in pimples. Cute, right? But it's a detox symptom. Your body rids itself of "toxins" through sweat, urine/fecal matter and through the skin in the form of acne.

      Days 19-42 were easy. I got a colonic on day 34, 35, 38 and 39. That in itself caused a weight loss of 12 pounds.

      On day 43, I broke my water fast with 4 oz. of organic diluted carrot juice.

      If you're wondering about weight, I lost 56 pounds, putting me at 104 pounds, standing 5'5.

      I have not gained any weight back because I've eating properly.

      On to the medical reason for fasting... I told my Oncologist what I did and he was not happy. I told him that I'd felt more energized and alert and I was in virtually no pain as opposed to the constant aching I'd experienced before the fast.

      He did my blood work. a few EKG's and your average "check-up" things like blood pressure at that visit. About a week later, I got a call asking me to come into his office because he wanted to talk to me.

      Scared out of my mind that I'd been the "exception" to cures and fasting, and had actually FURTHERED my Leukemia, tried to remain calm.

      I went into his office expecting to be granted 2 months to live. He greeted me and my father with a smile and---long story short---he explained that there are NO signs that I ever had Leukemia, asthma, type 2 diabetes OR chronic eczema. He compared me to a clean slate. I had virtually NO medical conditions.

      On top of this MIRACLE, ever since those acne detox symptoms passed on day 20, I no longer suffer from severe acne. I don't even break out. EVER. I have not had ONE zit in 3 years.

      I was clinically depressed and suicidal. I haven't felt even remotely close to that in forever!

      Fasting saved my life and I hate that it gets a bad rep.

      I hope I shined some light on how amazing our bodies are <3

      God bless you

      PS: If you're truly interested in water fasting, I suggest "Fasting and Eating for Health" by Joel Fuhrman. It's the equivalent to the Bible for me.

  30. QUESTION:
    How can you lose 5 pounds in one week?
    I don't think it is bad to lose a few pounds in one week. I just want to lose 5 pounds before my cousins wedding next week. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Anything you lose in that amount of time would be water weight, not fat. You most likely will not lose an inch. But if you want to be drastic - juice fasting is the way to go. It's not necessarily unhealthy if done correctly and some people even have enough energy to incorporate exercise.

      If that's too much. Exercise 2x per day - at least 1 hour of cardio each and drink plenty of water. You might want to include a sauna suit, as well. Avoid ALL salt. Exercising prior to your first meal has proven benefits of weight loss.

      You might also benefit from a colonic or you can go to a spa and they have body wraps that help you lose inches.

      EDIT:

      Running is actually great for losing weight. Also, in case anyone is wondering just because you lose only water weight in a juice fast doesn't mean you'll gain it back. I lost 7 lbs in a 11 day juice fast and I *never* gained it back.

  31. QUESTION:
    *~How much weight will I lose by doing this................~*?
    If starting momday I only eat fruits vegitables, and a little bit of bread. Exercise a bit everyday. Only drink water and green tea. How much weight will I lose in 1 week,1 month, and so on?
    I weight 142 pounds or more

    • ANSWER:
      For a very short time this would detox your body and the extra weight carried by water will pour off. So as each pound of fat contains 3,500 calories, work out your weekly allowance and you will probably lose about 5 lbs. But it is drastic, and it does not contain much protein which is like the building blocks in your body. So little carbs of the right kind, so you would be constipated eventually. Green tea I approve of and use it myself for a clean out - who needs colonic irrigation when the can drink tea for a few pennies. Each week your body will be getting aware that it is not being fed properly so it goes in to starvation mode and starts to hoard fat unless you excercise hard, in which case the fat shoud turn to muscle, but you won't have the strength to do that. Therefore, each subsequent week, you lose less, you learn nothing about long term nutrition or maintaining a certain weight by knowing exactly how much to eat in a day not to put on weight. But I know what you mean, you really want to lose it quick - this inevitably leads to yo yo dieting and then horror of horrors if you revert to eating shiite and junk, it will go back on with a vengeance after being starving , which means you are out of control. OK say for a week to get you started - encouraging - but long term its not good for you. The only way is to eat in moderation, deny yourself nothing, be sensible, sin now and then, even have a binge now and then, but you must learn this the hard way to be healthy i.e. a steady loss of 1-2 lbs per week unless you are enormous in which case you would never ever stick to such a rigid diet.

  32. QUESTION:
    Does colonic treatment work and help loose fat off body?
    my friend has started doing colonic treatment and reckons that you have the treatment then drink plenty of water to flush out the fat. I was just wondering if anyone has had it and does it work? Before anyone says, I eat healthy and exercise x 5 times a day but cannot shift the fat around my stomach and wondered whether to have the treatment (please no silly answers!)

    • ANSWER:
      I personally have not done the colonics, but have asked friends and did this quick research; it does not make sense that the process will cause weight loss or target weight loss.

  33. QUESTION:
    Best colon cleanse, or detox, to get body regular again?
    Been on a weird diet for the last couple of weeks and my digestive system isn't returning to normal as of yet, Doc recommended a colonic (yuck!!) so i am looking for an alternative way to cleasne and reboot my body.

    Not for weight loss, just want products that will get my body back to normal. Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      I just had two colonics done. Actually it wasn't bad at all. I felt refreshed afterwards.

  34. QUESTION:
    What are the causes of excessive gastrointestinal gases?
    This makes me uncomfortable during the lectures, sometimes I leave the class because of my belly sounds.

    • ANSWER:
      Causes and Treatment of Intestinal Bloating, Intestinal Gas and Flatulence
      Any way you pass it, excessive bloating and flatulence are no fun. Flatulence can cause social embarrassment, discomfort and pain when accompanied by intestinal bloating. Find out the causes of excessive flatulence, gas and bloating and learn about treatment strategies.

      Swallowed Air

      Some people habitually swallow air, a practice referred to as aerophagia. They are usually unaware that they do this, and the cause is often anxiety-related.

      The gas swallowed is composed mainly of oxygen and nitrogen. Most of the swallowed oxygen is absorbed by the mucous lining of the gut or is used up by colon bacteria. Very little appears in the flatus.

      In contrast, nitrogen is poorly absorbed by the mucous lining and most of the swallowed nitrogen appears in the flatus.

      Self-awareness of aerophagia. Conscious breathing.

      2. Relaxation techniques to reduce anxiety.

      3. Avoid lying down after eating. Gas from the stomach passes into the intestines more readily in this position.

      Poorly Absorbed Carbohydrates

      Hydrogen and carbon dioxide are produced by colon bacteria in the presence of poorly absorbed carbohydrates. If flatulence is accompanied by diarrhea and weight loss, it may indicate a malabsorption disorder such as lactose intolerance or pancreatic insufficiency, and should be evaluated by your primary health care provider.

      More common is excess flatulence after eating large amounts of poorly absorbed carbohydrates such as beans or foods that you have a sensitivity to. Common carbohydrate sensitivities include milk, and wheat products.

      Treatment Strategies

      1. Chew food carefully. Carbohydrate digestion begins in the mouth. Any work your teeth don't do, your stomach will have to do later.

      2. Try an elimination and challenge diet, under the supervision of a health care practitioner. This is a diagnostic diet to help you find out which carbohydrates you may have a sensitivity to.

      3. Consult your primary care provider to rule out malabsorption disorder if you are also experiencing weight loss and diarrhea.

      Gas and Flatulence After High-Fat Meals

      Carbon dioxide is produced in the small intestine when bicarbonate is released to neutralize stomach acid and fat during meals. Eating a high-fat meal can generate a large amount of carbon dioxide, some of which is released as gas.

      Treatment Strategies

      1. Eat 5 smaller meals instead of three large meals.

      2. Avoid high-fat meals. In general, fat intake should be about 30% of total dietary intake and should include plenty of monounsaturated and essential fats. Unhealthy saturated or hydrogenated fats should be limited.

      3. Consult your primary care provider to rule out the possibility of fat malabsorption. Signs of fat malabsorption include loose and light-colored stools.

      Odorous Flatulence and Gas

      Gas that has a strong odor usually results from the metabolism of sulfur-containing proteins and amino acids in the intestines.

      Treatment Strategies

      1. Chew meat and other protein foods carefully. Avoid excessive protein in your diet.

      2. Taking activated charcoal tablets can help to remove the odor.

      3. Chronic malodorous gas may be a sign of difficulty digesting protein. Consult a naturopathic doctor or other qualified professional to evaluate your level of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and colonic bacteria.

      Eating Foods that Produce Gas

      Certain foods are inherently gas-producing. Gas-producing foods include beans, cabbage, onions, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, fluffy wheat products such as bread, apples, peaches, pears, prunes, corn, oats, potatoes, milk, ice cream, and soft cheese.

      Foods that produce minimal gas include rice, bananas, citrus, grapes, hard cheese, meat, eggs, peanut butter, non-carbonated beverages, and yogurt made with live bacteria. Medical Disease

      When someone has persisting bloating and flatulence, lab tests and x-rays are first conducted to exclude the presence of medical disease. Colorectal cancer often presents with the symptoms of abdomen discomfort and bloating. Celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease may have similar symptoms. It is important to remember that gas and bloating are vague symptoms that can be associated with many medical diseases, so consultation with your primary care provider should always be the first step.

  35. QUESTION:
    Stomach aches and unexplained weight loss?
    So my dad had bleeding in his stool, and stomach aches and unexplained weightloss, and he had a colonoscopy which came back saying he has hemorrhoids. But the stomach aches are bad and he can't sleep and hes lost 10 pounds in the last few months so his doctor recommended a endoscopy. I am really worried, he has his endoscopy tomorrow, what are the possibilities of what it can be? His only symptoms were those three but he doesn't have bloody stools any more.

    • ANSWER:
      He needs colonoscopy as all 3 syptoms at old age suggest colonic pathology may be cancer.

  36. QUESTION:
    Do Colonic cleansing pills help weight loss? if so, anyone recommend a good one? I have heard of Co-ton?
    Is it true that they help weight loss?
    I have been on healthy diet and regular exercise for 3 weeks now and not really getting the results I need.
    Someone told me about Co-ton and says this is good ?
    Any recommendations
    Serious answers only please

    • ANSWER:
      No, they give you diarrhoea so you lose fluids and valuable electrolytes (sodium, potassium etc).
      A study of the living human anatomy reveals that the colon is at no time dirty or clogged.

      "Colon cleansers are known to cause auto-intoxication that manifests in the form of:
      Headache.
      Loss of appetite.
      Fatigue.
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
      It is known to disrupt the balance between natural enzymes and bacteria in the digestive tract."

  37. QUESTION:

    What do i do. Any exersize suggestions?
    i am 15 and weigh 130 pounds.
    im not fat!!

    • ANSWER:
      I will show you about 15 ab exercises, but first read this- this will help you burn fat, which will enable your abs to actually show. Think about it- NFL linemen don't have visible abs almost ever- yet they certainly have muscle there! the fat simply covers it. So...

      cut about 200 calories from what you're eating, no more than that. The KEY to losing weight isn't cutting "calories". The KEY is to EAT HEALTHIER FOOD, eat hot peppers to speed up metabolism, and to exercise-

      (run to lose weight and burn fat and speed up metabolism, play sports- WITHOUT SPORTS UR BODY DOESN'T FEEL A COMPETITION, SO IT WON'T POOP OUT UNNECESSARY CALORIES, WHICH IS WHAT A COMPETITIVE PERSON'S BODY DOES!, and lift weights a couple times a week, so you shape your body as well.)

      Do all of this, and I GUARANTEE you will lose the weight, and if you keep doing this, you will NOT get sick, like if you were "dieting"- you will get SEXIER, FITTER, SLIMMER, STRONGER, BETTER LOOKING, AND HEALTHIER EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE!

      These options REALLY work tho- the NORMAL, NATURAL ways that you're supposed to lose weight. These are:

      1) exercise! That little word fat people hate. Sorry, but you should run 2 miles around the track 3 times a week, run 5 400m sprints twice a week, and do a sport like swimming or basketball. also, lift some weights, reps of 20, at the gym.

      2) eat healthy! this includes...

      3) eat 5 small portioned, really nutrition-packed meals a day.

      4) eat a BIG breakfast! eat 2 eggs and cereal with whole milk. anything you eat for breakfast will NOT be stored to fat if you exercise- it takes only 8 hours to digest and crap food, and much longer for a day to go by.

      5) eat the 5 food groups- veggies and fruits are most important for girls, as they dont workout as hard as guys on average. then after that, dairy, meat, and bread food groups are all equally important.

      6) never eat any fast food, junk food, fried food, microwaved food, candy, chips, etc.

      7) EAT 2 HOT PEPPERS W/ DINNER 3 TIMES A WEEK! these speed up metabolism, enabling you to burn more fat and calories.

      8) get 9 hours of sleep a night- this will help healthy weight loss and promote stronger muscles and bones, make u more awake, and basically help u in EVERY ASPECT OF UR LIFE- yes, including weight loss as well.

      9) NEVER drink sodas, or have caffeine from anything, or ever take ANY artificial sweeteners! They are DEADLY CHEMICALS! you know sucralose (splenda)? it has 3 chlorine atoms (out of 4 total atoms!) it is TOXIC! it makes you GAIN weight, and kills your internal organs, makes you lazy, and addicted to it!

      10) eat NATURAL food- from wholefoods! today's foods have so many artificial chemicals, additivies, etc. that they are literally toxic- yes, I'm using that word again, cuz it so accurately describes the food. Go to wholefoods- or at LEAST get the healthiest, NATURALEST stuff you can from places like giant or safeway.

      11) Get a colonic- this will clean out yo butt! literally! lol it sounds awkward, but its natural.

      12) the healthiest meats are tuna, fish, eggs, steak, turkey, and chicken. (MAINLY THE 1ST 3)

      ==================================

      ok, now for the ab exercises. You should pick 5 of these each time, and repeat them on a circuit for 20-30 minutes each day- at the END of your workout! make sure it's almost nonstop- no more than about 20 seconds between each set.

      sit-ups
      incline sit-ups
      roman chair sit-ups
      incline sit-ups with medicine ball; at halfway, alternate side to side 4x
      crunches
      oblique crunches
      bicycle exercise- (alternating elbow-to-other-knee touches)
      captain's chair- knee/leg lift to chest
      "elbows and toes"- keep back/butt flat and face a mirror.
      vertical leg crunch
      wheel w/ handles extensions/crunches (on knees)
      6" leg raises
      cable downward crunches
      pike sit-ups

  38. QUESTION:
    Is my doctor doing all he can for my thyroid?
    A couple of weeks ago I had blood work done and was told I have an overactive thyroid. I have almost every symptom (hair loss, fatigue, depression, anxiety, chest pain, unclear thoughts). My doctor wanted me to wait a month to run more tests. I insisted that I couldn't wait that long and got them within two weeks. They didn't say anything new. Now my doctor wants to wait another 6- 8 weeks to take more tests. I have my two little boys to take care of and can't possibly go on this long with these symptoms. Should I switch doctors or should I just wait to get more blood work done? Any help and knowledge on overactive thyroid would be helpful!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Daisy

      Here are some answers and some ideas to start the healing process.

      Hyperthyroidism

      Definition
      Hyperthyroidism is a health condition caused by overproduction of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland.

      The thyroid is one of your body's "master" glands, meaning that it influences and regulates overall metabolism and the overall health of most of the cells in your body, including helping to form protein RNA (the building blocks of life) for every cell and to increase oxygen consumption by most cells. Located at the base of the neck, the thyroid gland consists of two lobes, one on each side of the windpipe (trachea).

      Symptoms
      Symptoms of hyperthyroidism include rapid heartbeat, enlarged thyroid (goiter), moist skin, trembling or tremors, erratic pulse pressure levels (too high or too low), fatigue, anxiety, weight loss, bulging eyes, excessive sweating, increased appetite, low tolerance to heat, diarrhea, chest pain, and gastrointestinal disorders. In older people with hyperthyroidism, however, the opposite of the above symptoms can occur. Overall, hyperthyroidism is much rare than hypothyroidism (under active thyroid function).

      Hyperthyroidism may be associated with and often is called Graves' disease, a condition characterized by an enlarged thyroid, bulging eyes bulge, rash and swelling in front of the lower leg.

      Cause
      Abnormal immune response is believed be a possible cause of hypothyroidism. The exact cause is not known, but certain antibodies from the immune system will launch an assault on the thyroid, disturbing hormone production. Lumps or tumors that form on the thyroid also disrupt hormone production. Temporary hyperthyroidism can be caused by infection or inflammation, and certain prescription drugs.

      Hyperthyroidism is less common than Hypothyroidism, yet for both diseases, women appear to be more susceptible than men. Be aware that a malfunctioning thyroid may be the cause of recurring illnesses.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet, emphasizing foods that naturally suppress excess thyroid hormone production. Such foods include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens, rutabagas, spinach, turnips, soybeans, peaches, and pears. Eliminate dairy products, over consumption of wheat products, coffee, tea, and caffeinated soft drinks.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. I suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.

      Homeopathy: The homeopathic remedy Thyroidium is very helpful in assisting in proper thyroid regulation.

      Juice Therapy: Drink carrot, celery, spinach, and parsley juice; or juice made from a combination of cabbage, watercress, and spinach.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can help regulate thyroid function: vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, choline, trace minerals, iodine, kelp, and thyroid glandulars.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating hyperthyroidism: Acupuncture, Biofeedback Training, Homeopathy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

  39. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know much about the Martha Vineyard diet?
    The news channel around here had some local people do it and followed up with them. It realy worked. I just put the book on hold at the library to get more info on it. But does any one know if you hvae to buy the 21 day package they sale on line to do the diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Lose 21 pounds in 21 days. That's the big promise of the Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox, made popular by its celebrity dieters, including Howard Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers. In addition to weight loss, the plan also promises to deliver more energy, lower blood pressure, a sharper mind and a body cleansed of toxins.

      On the program dieters have three choices -- either a two-day plan, a seven-day tune-up option or the full 21-day detox. The daily schedule for all three is the same. Your 8:30AM breakfast is a high-density antioxidant berry drink, an herbal cleansing formula, a cup of hot herbal tea and eight ounces of water (preferably distilled). At 10:30, you'll have eight ounces of water and eight ounces of hot or iced herbal tea. At 12:30PM, lunch consists of either one cup of fresh vegetable juice (made at home in a juicer) or a green drink (made from packets of powder), as well as another eight ounces of water, more of the herbal cleansing formula and an enzyme capsule. At 2:30, you'll repeat your 10:30 "snack." At 4:30, dieters have either a high-density antioxidant or berry drink. At 6:00, dinner consists of one cup of homemade cleansing soup, one cup of broth, one cup of herbal tea, more herbal cleansing formula, 8-ounces of water and another enzyme capsule. At 7:30, you'll have either eight ounces of water or tea. At bedtime, dieters take an aloe vera supplement.

      For physical activity, followers of this plan are encouraged to walk one mile a day or bounce on a trampoline for 20 minutes. Those following the entire 21-day plan are also advised to have one colonic and one coffee enema each week. Dieters using the seven-day or two-day version skip the colonic, but are still expected to administer one coffee enema to help detoxify.
      Checklist

      Cost: Pricey. The entire diet hinges on having a juicer, which according to the book can cost between and 0. Other expenses include buying enzyme capsules and plenty of organic fruits and vegetables, distilled water, colonics, enemas, body wraps and other spa-like treatments.
      Meals Provided: No.
      Diet Duration: Up to 21 days.
      Fitness Requirements: Dieters are encouraged to either walk one mile or bounce on a trampoline for twenty minutes a day.
      Time Commitment: Intense. Physical activity amounts to about 20 minutes a day, but expect to spend considerable amounts of time preparing juice and soup at home, and getting colonics.
      Eating Out: Impossible. The mainstay of the diet is homemade juices, soups and other drinks.
      Alcohol: None is allowed during any of the plans.
      Vegetarian-Friendly: Very. Dieters end up eating a minimum of twenty-two servings of fruits and veggies -- either in soup, juices or supplements.
      Strict/Flexible Eating Plan: Incredibly strict. Dieters are told exactly what to consume and when.
      hope that helped

  40. QUESTION:
    What is the best body cleansing and detoxification product?
    Thanks! :)

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sure you will find this article very enlightening :)

      The best way to "detox" the body is simply to let your body do its job. Unless you have a medical problem, your body takes care of itself quite nicely, experts say.

      "The liver and kidneys are nature's best-kept secret, because they are the weapons to eliminate toxins from your body," says Gerbstadt. "If you are concerned about certain substances in your diet, it is easier and safer to simply eliminate [those substances] rather than engage in unhealthy detox plans."

      Be mindful of what you eat, drink plenty of fluids, and avoid excess medications and alcohol, say the experts.

      If you want to promote water loss, Gerbstadt suggests doing it naturally by consuming cranberries, celery, asparagus, and herbal teas, and limiting salt.

      Most detox diets promote herbs, pills, potions, colonics, and/or fasts to rid the body of impurities. They also promise quick weight loss. And yes, you will shed unwanted pounds -- not because of any medical magic, but because these plans are super-low in calories.

      "You will lose weight, but it is the not the unhealthy fat you want to lose but precious body protein and fluids," says May.

      Detox diets tend to be extremely restrictive, allowing only unprocessed plant foods, which are supposed to assist the lymph, kidneys, and liver with the detox process.

      Gallons of water or specially formulated drinks along with herbs (usually only available on the diet's web site) are generally the only liquids allowed. One regimen calls for liquids (various concoctions including laxative teas) for 10 days, without any solids. Coffee, tea, alcohol, processed foods, and animal products are not commonly part of any detox diet plans.

      Enjoying a plant-based diet is perfectly healthy, but most detox diets go to extremes, experts say.

      "The limited variety of foods and beverages and minimum calories is of concern because it is very difficult to get all the nutrients and energy you need for good health with such restrictive regimens," says Christine Gerbstadt, MD, RD.

      Unless you have religious or cultural reasons to fast or follow detox programs, she advises against them.

      "Massive fluid losses upset the delicate fluid and electrolyte balance, can cause gastrointestinal distress, headaches, fatigue [and] irritability, and can lead to dehydration," says Gerbstadt.

      Colons don't need flushing unless you are prepping for a medical procedure like a colonoscopy. Colonic enemas tamper with the body's natural fluid and electrolyte balance and can lead to infection, irregularity, and dehydration. Instead, Gerbstadt suggests a high fiber diet.

      "Eating more fiber in whole grains, bran, fruits, vegetables, beans, and nuts is a safe and natural way to add bulk to your diet," she says.

      Gerbstadt also warns that fasting or following very restrictive detox diets can slow your metabolism, making it harder to lose weight once you start eating again.

      "In many cases, they result in rebound overeating because of excess hunger, deprivation, and an out-of-control feeling that is not because of a metabolic imbalance or addiction but instead driven by the deprivation of the diet plan," says May.

  41. QUESTION:
    Iam tinking of having gastric by pass surgery?
    I am 32years old I have changed the way I eat I eat veggies and fruit I eat small portions of food but I am 5ft tall and 230lbs
    I have 2girls that I what to be there for but need to loss weight to have more energy do think I should try Phentermine before thinking of surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sally

      Before you do a major surgery, look closely at cleansing your body of excess waste and toxins from the blood.

      If your colon is bunged up, it can start to cause all sorts of health problems in the body. Eat lots of fruit and veg, include plenty of fiber in your diet and buy a colon cleanse from a health food store or online if necessary. It's also good to get some colonic irrigation. It makes you feel so clean inside and you get the urge to put only good food in your body after you've been cleansed.

      1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water, herbal tea or unsweetened juice each day
      2. Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper
      3. Eat every two hours, by having healthy snacks in between meals. Eating frequently increases your metabolism.
      4. Eat lots of fruit and veg.
      5. When having potatoes, rice or pasta, just have a small portion.

      1) Eat at least 5 servings of different fruits and vegetables every day. Don't eat any junk/snack type food until you've had at least 5 fruits/vegetables.

      2) Stick to whole, unprocessed foods such as whole grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, nuts. As much as you can, try to eat foods that don't have a brand name! So, for example, eat oatmeal (you can buy oats in the bulk bin of most grocery stores) instead of Honey Bunches of Oats.

      3) Eliminate partially hydrogenated oil and high-fructose corn syrup completely.

      4) Drink a gallon of water instead of soda. If you really want juice, make it a nutritious juice, such as orange juice. Apple and grape juices have very little in the way of nutrients.

      5) Minimize animal products, especially fatty ones, as much as possible. This includes dairy and meat.

      6) Learn about colon cleansing every quarter to remove excess waste and toxins out of the body. Your body would embrace this practice immensely.

      Best of health to you

  43. QUESTION:
    What are the symptons for colon cancer?, how do u know u have it?, does age matter?
    where should u have pain? i know its alot of questions bc i need 2 know bc i am having pain near my appendix but i already got that checked and it isnt my appendix!!!! ahh =[

    • ANSWER:
      Colonic Cancer Symptom:

      Pain on the left lower portion of the abdomen accompanied by constipation or intermittent diarrhea and constipation. The feeling of unfulfilled bowel movement or pain before bowel movement is very common. Blood in the stools is often detected and usually followed by relief of the pain. Loss of weight and small caliber of the stool size are some of the signs which could lead to the diagnosis.

      Diagnosis: Colonic Cancer

      Organ Involved: Large Intestines

      Cause: Unknown. Chronic cases of Amoebic dysentery, high intake of aflatoxin containing foodstuffm high smoke fish and bar-b-cue diet are some of the known factors related to the incidence of colonic cancer.

      Initial Treatment: Relieve patient of chronic constipation by enema in the form of soapsuds or fleet enema - a bottled laxative delivered direct to the anus to facilitate bowel movement.

      Advice: Slow progression of symptoms is very common. Most are detected in their late stage. Preventions such as annual physical examination or routine colonoscopy have increased early detection. If found as a partial obstruction, complete resection without passing through the stage of colostomy (transfer of stool outlet into the left side of the abdomen) can be done. In late stage, permanent colostomy after resection is the only option to increase survival.

      Laboratory Exam recommended:
      a. Barium Enema
      b. Colonoscopy

  44. QUESTION:
    Can anyone tell me a good colon cleansing system, that can be done at home?
    Has any one used Bowtrol of Duel Action Cleanser systems?

    • ANSWER:
      Whether it be in the form of juicing fasting, enemas or even colonic detox therapy at a clinic, it has all been valued in one way or another.

      The remarkable results that many have experienced shows how effective this really is to lose pounds of fat naturally in a very small amount of time with a good colon detox.

      I've been using detox therapies for years now and I finally found one product that happens to be online that will actually work really well. It's 100% natural and safe to use but it will also result in very quick results with weight loss and toxic waste excretion within days of using it.

  45. QUESTION:
    Have you ever had Colonic irrigation, how did you feel afterwards and do you think it was worth it ?
    Also, how much did it cost you ?

    • ANSWER:
      You'd be better off doing an Oxy cleanse - much cheaper and very much an all round intestinal cleaner.

      There are some products online that you can get but are expensive, and all they are is basically a mixture of magnesium and oxygen which you can buy for much cheaper practically anywhere.

      So I'd go to Holland and Barratt and get some Magnesium Oxide and take 6 each night on an empty stomach with some lemon water for four/five night and buy the end of the week you'll be completely clean and healthy - and the weight loss is awesome!

      It's a very safe method with so many benefits, just make sure you aren't going anywhere during the day because you'll be going to the toilet a lot.

  46. QUESTION:
    Can a person throw up tapeworm eggs?
    My cat recently had to be treated for tapeworms.I've been burping up bile lately and the last time, I coughed up what looked like two sesame seeds,exactly like the ones that my cat left in his bed when he had his.Is it possible I could have gotten tapeworms or would an egg not survive through the stomach, only in the intestines?Am I just being paranoid or should I go see a doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      The tapeworm is a parasite that comes into the body through under cooked pork and fecal matter. The eggs hatch into larvae inside the intestines. The tapeworm larvae then hooks on to the intestinal wall and lays eggs, which normally leave the body. The tapeworm can grow up to 65 feet long inside of you. That's the length of a garden hose. Imagine having that in your bowels. However, these usually don't cause symptoms, almost never when inside the intestines. Just weight loss, which people take as a blessing.

      However, more often than you might think, the eggs or larvae leave the intestines into the blood stream. Then the larvae can hook onto anything - eyes, muscle, the brain, spleen, lungs, heart, liver, or kidneys. Then the tapeworm lives comfortably. Again, unless it is in the eye, you have almost no symptoms. The tapeworm mearly feeds on fluid and leaves everything alone. What a tapeworm does is control fluid direction. Tapeworms tell fluid to flow this way and exit over here. It does this normally because it wants you alive to live.

      As soon as your tapeworm starts dying however, (which could be years) it's wreaks havoc on your body. Without a master to control your fluid flow, fluid like blood is prevented from reaching where you need it to go.

      Depending on where your larvae landed, you could have seizures, blindness, liver failure, a heart attack, kidney failure or a ruptured spleen. These are all very deadly conditions to be in.

      I'll walk you through what will happen. If your doctor does believe you have a tapeworm, a sample of your fecal matter will be taken and tested for tapeworm eggs. If it tests positive, you will be taken in for an X-Ray or CT scan. On both of these, tapeworms light up like a lightbulb. Depending on the placement of your tapeworm, you might need a high colonic (where they stick a tube up inside your rectum and remove all matter), or pills which will dissolve the tapeworm.

      Basically, the worst thing that can happen is you don't like a high colonic. The pros outweigh the cons.

      I would see a medical doctor.

      Good luck,
      Andrew Guenther

  48. QUESTION:
    IS a colon detox good for your body?
    i want to try a colon detox but want to learn more about it before i begin the detox. what are the side effects?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Isabella,,

      Katherin is right. Don't go for a general colon detox.

      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.

      Natural and homeopathic remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to assist the body's natural detoxification at home by ridding itself of waste and toxins, therefore cleansing the organs. In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom.

      There are now various published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the cleansing properties of certain herbs. Natural detoxification at home is easy through the routine flushing out of the stomach, and digestive system – supporting toxin elimination by the liver.

      Studies have also shown natural substances to help the body remain regular and assist in the body’s ability to rid itself of waste products.

      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!

  49. QUESTION:
    How efficient is the colonic?
    how much weight can you actually use and what are advantages anddisadvantages of having on done

    • ANSWER:
      Thelma, don't use a colonic irrigation for weight loss. You will only lose about 3 to 5 lbs during a session, but it will come back if you do not change your diet.

  50. QUESTION:
    what is the best way of detoxing our liver?
    what is the best way to detox our liver?

    • ANSWER:
      Can be achieved artificially by techniques such as dialysis and (in a very limited number of cases) chelation therapy.

      Other less mainstream methods for eliminating toxic substances from the body include the modification of the diet and addition of certain herbs and rituals such as colonic irrigation, juice fasting and sweat lodges. All these methods claim to assist the body's natural detoxification process.

      A detox diet is a dietary regimen involving a change in consumption habits in an attempt to detoxify the body by removal of toxins or other contaminants. It is claimed to improve health, energy, resistance to disease, mental state, digestion, as well as aiding in weight loss.

      Various methods of modifying the diet for the said purpose of detoxification include:

      Fasting, including water fasting and juice fasting.
      Increased consumption of fish such as salmon
      Food combining.
      Caloric restriction.
      Herbal detox (if one considers herbs food and not a form of drug).

      Detox diets usually suggest that 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 (which helps curb appetite) is similarly recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is there an inexpensive home remedy for colon cleansing?
    I've been doing a little research on those colon cleansing kits and they seem like the way to go for a healthier system. I work out regularily & have begun eating better. These kits are believed to eliminate toxicity and waste from the body, reduce stress from our vital organs (liver, colon, kidneys, blood, skin, etc.) and support the rejuvenation of the immune system. This all sounds great, B U T.....EXPENSIVE!! I just wondered if anyone knew any safe home remedies that might work as well?

    • ANSWER:
      Psyllium hulls in powder form that you mix with water 2 to 3 times per day, drink lots of water, eath lot of fiber and raw vegetables, take acidophilous. this would be a good minimum to start. After about 2 weeks you can reduce psyllium to teice daily and discontinue the acidophilous.

      You may wish to do a juice fast for the first day or two if you have a juicer and can access fresh vegetable juice, not v8 or sugary fruit juices.

      This is not the most complete or exhaustive cleanse but it is a good basic start and the psylliun, water, fiber, vegetables part of it can be maintained for life. In the long run cunsistent healthy practices win out over occasional extremes anyway.

  2. QUESTION:

  3. QUESTION:
    What are some natural colon cleansing home remedies?
    I have heard a few things about lemon, and I drink senna tea (which works wonders), but I'm wondering if anyone has any good home remedies? I think I'm going to try a cleanse and a fast, to jump start a diet, is that safe?

    • ANSWER:
      To ensure a healthy colon, the most important thing for your diet is fiber. Fiber can help with digestion and help ensure regular bowel movements, which leads to a clean colon. One of the most fiber-filled foods is whole grains. There are many foods that can contain whole grains. These include whole wheat bread, oatmeal, brown rice and whole grain cereals. You can also eat peanuts, rice cakes, sunflower seeds or beans. These foods all contain fiber and are also healthy.

  4. QUESTION:
    How do I cleanse my colon?
    I really need a colon cleansing. I can tell because I get sick frequently (first i get mild cramping, then diarreah and then vomiting). What are some natural home remedies that I could use? (note im 10)

    • ANSWER:
      You may have a nervous disorder, common to teenagers. Before you do anything, talk to your doctor.

      There are several ways to cleanse your colon.

      There are mechanical methods, such as enemas, and colonics. Enemas can be performed at home in your tub. Colonics need to be performed by licensed professionals. Basically, they fill your colon with warm water, have you hold it a while, and then the open the valve and drain the system. Colonics are more thorough, and cost about 0 each treatment. That’s the hard way, and may still not solve the problem.

      If your colon is not working properly, chances are toxins have built up in the organs that provide support for the intestines and colon. If the problem is to be over come, those toxins must be removed from your organs.

      There are two other routes to take. The medical remedy, using drugs and other medicines, and herbal, natural remedies.

      The medical route will have side effects, and may cause other problems.

      Natural remedies use the same foods we normally eat. There are no side effects. The downside is they take a while to detoxify the organ, regrow new healthy tissue, and train it to function properly.

      The best product on the market is Boweltrol which both cleanses and regulates your bowels.
      The makers of Boweltrol are so sure you’ll love their product that they are offering a Risk Free Trial Offer, and further a Money Back Guarantee.

      I would also do a good colon cleanse using Dr Schulze's intestinal cleanse #1 and #2 as directed

      http://curezone.com/schulze/herbal_use_colonic_formulas.asp

      http://curezone.com/schulze/herbal_colon_cleanse_1_2.asp

      Do it once a season

      You can get intestinal cleanse #1 and #2 at his site

      https://www.herbdoc.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=17&Itemid=38&c=1 (under digestion and elimination)

      or the same organic formula made by others a little cheaper at

      http://healthfree.com/cleanse_detox.html

      or here

      http://www.healmarketplace.com/cartstuff/foundational.html (here it is called lower bowel formula #1 and #2 (this is a site run by Dr Schultz's student Dara

      Be sure to follow directions exactly and not start intestinal cleanse #2 until you reach the number of bms that equals how many meals you are eating a day (ie-3 meals means 3 bowel movements) and the bms are not hard and sinking but light and fluffier.

      Once you reach that, then cut by one pill and that is your dose for the intestinal cleanse #1 taken at dinner and then start your intestinal cleanse #2 with it --5 times a day and you will get wonderful results. Some people lose weight and feel great.

      Dr Christopher. Dr Schulze's teacher, said after several colon cleanse all his students cut their grocery bills i half as they were satisfied with far less food and had more energy on it. He himself went from 4 large meals a day to two small ones and felt a lot healthier and happier.

      Schulze said 80% of his patients with incurables diseases got better just doing the colon cleanse.

  12. QUESTION:
    has anyone had success with the Power Flush 500 or Acai berry weight loss remedies?
    These diet colon cleansing remedies have been touted online but I want to know if anyone has actually used these successfully (your own experience) or not. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I have a weight loss idea for you that helped me lose about 20 pounds in 3 months. However, first I want to warn you that the internet is filled with acai berry SCAMS.

      This is based on my own personal experience. One online scam is Acai Berry Supreme. They promised a free bottle and I would only have to pay shipping. I noticed an additional .95 added to my credit card from that company and had to complain to the company to get a refund.

      Another scam is Acai Berry Power 500, which also offered a free trial bottle. They then started mailing me additional bottles of acai without my permission. Again, I had to complain to the company to get credit card charges removed.

      Your best bet is to go to a health food or vitamin store and buy acai directly. Sambazon is probably the best company to buy from. If you can’t get acai directly, you should be safe to buy it from sambazon.com.

      What did help me lose 20 pounds in 3 months is an old home remedy that might sound strange to you. Put 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV) and 1 tablespoon of honey in 8 ounces of warm water and drink this mixture. Do this twice a day. Use Bragg's ACV or other brands from a health food store, not stuff you buy in a regular grocery store. I can't offer you any guarantee, but ACV did work for me.

    I have a skin condition called Rosacia. Would appreciate if some one could give me a good home remedy ?
    Rosacia has made my skin on my cheeks, chin and nose become red. (really red). There is no real cure in allopathy it can only be controlled. DR adviced me to take Antibiotic for 6 months to reduce it but there is no guarantee that it will be cured. So would appreciate if any oen can give me a herbal /home remedy for this problem.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Ameena

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

      Quick Action Plan for SKin Issues

      1. Massage your skin, where needed, with bergamot, camphor, geranium, juniper, lavender, or neroli essential oils.

      2. Ayurvedic practitioners recommend making a paste of ½ tsp each of turmeric and sandalwood paste with enough water, and applying to pimples. Also, drink half a cup of aloe vera juice twice daily until skin clears.

      3. Eat an organic whole foods diet, with plenty of organic cooked and raw vegetables, and whole fruits. Reduce animal fats and stressor foods such as caffeine, refined sugars, and alcohol, as well as colas, candies, and frozen and processed foods. Include more high fiber foods.

      4. Drink eight glasses of pure, filtered water daily. Also, daily have two glasses of raw juice, combining carrot, beet, and celery juice, or, carrot, cucumber, and lettuce (not iceberg), and spinach, with carrot predominating.

      5. Add 3-5 drops of crab apple flower essence to pure water and drink during the day. Rescue Remedy® is good for stress.

      6. Combine the tinctures of herbs such as sarsaparilla, burdock, and cleavers in equal parts, taking ½ tsp three times a day. Drink an infusion of nettle several times a day and apply tea tree oil topically. An infusion of calendula mixed with equal parts of distilled witch hazel can be used as a cleansing wash. Steam sauna your face with red clover, lavender, and strawberry leaves.

      7. Useful homeopathy remedies are Pulsatilla, Silicea, Berberis, Ledum, Sulfur, Arsen alb., Belladonna, and/or Carbo veg.

      8. Enjoy full body immersion hydrotherapy treatments such as steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation, hot and/or cold compresses, and steam sauna your face with red clover, lavender, and strawberry leaves.

      9. Useful supplements are vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc. Also include omega-3 fatty acids, brewer's yeast, chlorophyll, and pancreatic enzymes with meals.

      10. Expose your face to sun and air at least 30 minutes a day, and exercise daily. Keep your skin clean by washing your face three times a day with soap made from the herb calendula officinalis, or using other alternatives to soap. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Keep the skin free of oil and use water-based products. Get sufficient sleep.

      11. Make facial masks from natural products; leave on overnight to help dry the skin if the issue is caused by excess oil.

      12. For long term relief and health be sure to do a colon cleanse. This clears out the toxins in the blood and excess waste in the body. Colon cleansing will healp clear up a lot of issue, expecially skin issues.

      Skin Issues may be worsened at adolescence, during the pre-menstrual and/or mid-menstrual cycle due to hormonal action, and when under stress, on contraceptives, eating a poor diet that causes an over acidic system, or taking prescription and non-prescription drugs.

      Skin Issues may suggest the need for better hygiene, or magnesium and vitamin A. Also some skin issues are suggesting vitamin B1 deficiency or absorption problems. Consistent raised spots on the outside of the arms and sometimes even the thighs, resembling "chicken skin," may suggest need for magnesium, vitamin A, or essential fatty acids or the need to avoid foods that inhibit the absorption of these nutrients, such as trans-fatty acids found in margarine and hydrogenated oils, such as cottonseed oil and palm kernel oil.

      Food allergies, allergies to facial creams, soaps, shampoos, makeup, and excess intake of refined sugars, can all cause or contribute to skin issues. Certain foods can also aggravate skin conditions because of their high-acid forming effects on the body, especially fried foods, trans fats, iodized salt, alcohol, hot and spicy foods, all processed foods, chocolate, fruit juices, carbonated beverages, caffeinated beverages, and dairy products. Excessive long-term intake of seafood or other high iodine foods may also cause issues in some people.

      Coexisting gum problems suggest the need for folic acid. A separate skin condition may occur in women 30-40 years old due to physical exercising or working all day with face makeup, lowered resistance due to stress, or hyper-response to bacteria or hormone problems. Another skin problem, acne rosacea (reddish spots in a pattern over nose and cheeks), may be a sign of low B vitamins or low hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there a home remedy to cleanse your colon or do you have to buy an expensive kit to do the dirty work?
    I heard you could have years of undigested stuff in your colon that sticks to the walls and prevents you from absorbing nutrients in the foods you eat now.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Mae

      THe answers on this website really show how ignorant we are in cleaning the toxins out of the body. The average american has one bowel movement every 2 days and almost everywhere else in the world is 30 minutes after eating! If toxins are sitting in the colon where are they suppose to go if you dont have regular movements ? They get in the blood and that is main reason we get illness and disease. We Americans eat so much food that is processed and has all types of chemicals in them. It's no wonder we lead the world in the most types of diseases known.

      To answer your question; the process is to get herbs (or colonics) that help give a person regular bowel movements and cleans out the colon. You can do this effectively with a 5-10 day cleanse by eating organic fruits and vegetables (better yet juicing them) and using herbs to help clear the toxins. (herbdoc.com has a good program)

      Who makes money if we are all ignorant and have health issues (drug companies of course)? If we educate everyone to have 4-5 colon cleanses a year our nation would have most of our freedom back. Health freedom anyway.

      Best of health to you

  15. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to cleanse your colon?
    I don't want to buy medicine from the store I just want to know if there is any home remedies that I could do? Like eat certain foods or whatnot. I feel like if I cleanse my body Id feel much better.

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

      The more wholegrains and cereals like organic brown rice 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 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 ......... green vegies lightly stemed or raw like broccolli, celery, buk choy, kale, chard are all rich in calcium and magnesium 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.

      peace baby

    Dieting: How much does it cost to get colon cleaned?
    I'm dieting & exercising. I've read that detoxing or even getting your colon cleaned can help you lose 8+ pounds. How expensive is this? Which would you recommend a supplement or the colon cleanse procedure?

      The amount of weight you can lose with a colon cleanse depends on how much matter is left in your intestines. The average person has 5-20 pounds of matter, so you can lose a decent amount.

      For colon cleansing home remedies, the best thing would be going for juice fasting for 3- 5 days or eat a diet high in fiber and drink your recommended amount of water.

      For colon cleansing products, Cellular Research, Dr. Natura, Dr. Schulze, Enuvia, Health Plus, Nature's Secret and Oxy-Powder are quite among popular among the industry.

  20. QUESTION:
    Is there a good home treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
    I suffer from IBS, and it is really starting to take it's toll on my social and family life. It only really affects me when it's time to leave the house (when my adrenaline levels are elevated), and it is making me miserable. I haven't been out to eat with my hubby and kids in a couple years at least, because the "flare ups" make me miserable and shake and sweat and I can't possibly eat. I don't have health insurance, so a doctor's prescription isn't an option. Are there any supplements that I can take or "home remedies" that will help me? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I'm willing to try just about anything to get my life back!
    I've had this problem for most of my life, but it has gotten significantly worse since I had my gallbladder removed in December of '04. It is much more painfuul now (to the point I feel faint).

    • ANSWER:
      I've had the same problem on and off my entire life. Do NOT drink extra coffee like the person above me said. Coffee contains tanic acid, which irritates the lining of your stomach and can cause diarrhea. You don't get "over it" like they said. It just irritates your stomach more and more.

      A natural remedy would be peppermint. You can find the essential oil of peppermint at any natural foods store. Put a few drops up to a spoonful into some herbal tea and drink it. Avoid coffee & carbonated drinks as they're irritating. If you need caffeine to wake up in the morning, try green tea. It's not great on a stomach but much softer on it than coffee.

      Licorice (black, not red) is also a remedy for upset stomach & diarrhea in general. You can find licorice tea at most stores.

      There's a really strong natural tea that will calm you down for those moments you get anxious - it's Valerian root, also found at natural food stores. It doesn't smell good (my husband won't even let me keep it in the house but I don't think it's THAT bad :) but it really does have a calming effect when drank as a hot tea.

      Get Fiber One on your cereal isle and put that on top of whatever cereal you eat. Fiber balances you out - helps bind you if you have diarrhea or help you go if you can't. Eat a healthy diet with plenty of greens for natural fiber.

      I bought something called "Colon Cleanse" online for like , but I never used it b/c my IBS cleared up before it arrived, but I think the main ingredient in it is just fiber... I know what you're going through - I had IBS straight for 2 years once! UG! (before I found natural remedies)

Also, I drink Alfalfa -- sometimes I take chlorella to boost my system. Also, CoQ10 seems to help me greatly. Cayenne improves your circulation also. It's great to get rid of sore throats.

    How can i get rid of dark circles under my eyes?
    At home, how can i get rid of puffiness and dark circles under my eyes w/o buying anything from the store?? how long will it take?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many causes of dark circles, from age, heredity, allergies, cold or sinus infection, bone structure and glasses which are not so commonly known.
      http://www.mydarkcirclesblog.com/2006/11/27/causes-of-dark-circles/

      If you would like to apply home remedies to reduce dark circles, here are some of my suggestions:
      Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (e.g. Knox) from grocery store. Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add one tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute. Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel. Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off.Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your dark circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to cleanse my colon?
    i've just heard of this and in looking it up i've found nothing but ads for several products. So what is the best way to cleanse my colon?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Angela,

      There are a lot of options as far as colon cleansing goes. Some people take part in colon hydrotherapy, which involves actually flushing the colon out with water, pumped in from, well... You get the idea :) If you do decide to go this route, be sure you're working with a qualified professional - it's easy for inexperienced technicians to cause serious damage if they aren't able to control the pressure of the water accurately.

      If this sounds uncomfortable to you (it sure does to me!), there are a lot of supplements and home remedies that people take to help clean and purify the colon. If you choose to go this route, try to find a product or recipe that includes some sort of pro-biotic supplement, since colon cleansing can eliminate the colonies of beneficial bacteria that live in your intestines. If they aren't replaced, you won't be able to process food effectively, which could lead to some serious consequences. If you want to find out more about the specific products that have worked for me, check out my blog in the link below.

      Hope this helps!

  32. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any good herbal remedies for hirstuism?
    I have polycystic ovarian syndrome which unfortunately causes excess facial hair growth. I am disgusted and frustrated with this problem. I've tried the pill(side effects didn't agree with me) and I can't affort the pricey hair removal treatments. Can anyone out there offer me any advice for this problem? I wonder if anyone has tried any supplements or herbal remedies that have worked?

    • ANSWER:
      Hirsutism is caused by excess of androgens in the body of the woman. It can be caused by exposure to androgens in diet and environment. It can also be caused by excess stress which really affects the whole body not just your mind. It can also be caused by hypothyroidism which causes a host of other problems in the body. It can be accompanied by tumors or not.

      Hirsutism can cause social anxiety and mental distress because of how women, women's body and "beauty" are viewed in society.

      I have had hirsutism for the last 5-6 years. I am 31 at the moment so it's definitely not a menapause or age related thing. At first it was minimal, and so I attributed it genetics. but about a couple of years ago, my hair started growing so profusely and rapidly that it scared the crap out of me. I did some research and took some herbs that literally slowed down and sometimes even stopped the growth. I also discovered that I had hypothyroidism which is part of the cause of the hirsutism. Also, intense mental stress, which had a lot to with my social and family environment and with traumatic experiences of childhood, caused my body to react the way it did.

      I still take the herbs because it takes time for the herbs to effect the system and heal it. I believe that the right medication, lifestyle, diet, environment, mindset, can all help to heal the disease.

      I use Saw Palmetto quite a bit. A tea or decoction of the following herbs is quite helpful.

      Vitex Chaste Berry
      Saw Palmetto
      Black Cohosh
      Fenugreek
      Goat's Rue
      Stinging Nettle
      Pygeum Africans
      Schizandra Berry

      I also take other herbs that all affect the sexual hormones of the female body. For example, the following herbs really help with my painful menstrual cycle and general overall hormonal health... which in turn helps the issues of hirsutism amd hypothyroidism.

      Dong Quai
      Schizandra Berry
      Shilajit
      Shatavari etc.

      I take things that help with hypothyroidism which can be a cause of hirsutism.

      Seaweed especially Bladderwack
      helps a lot.

      I also take things that help to de-stress the system.

      Kava-kava
      Gotu Kola
      Chamomile
      Lavender
      St. John's Wort
      Valerian
      Flax seeds
      almonds or almond oil etc.

      Raw foods help a lot. I absolutely do not use non-organic dairy. I am even picky with the organic dairy that I buy for not all organic companies allow a healthy diet and lifestyle for the cows. I would recommend, if you can do it, getting off dairy completely for a while. It helps slow down the hair growth. Only do organic foods and cut out sugar. If you want to do sugar than I have found maple syrup, honey, agave to be better substitutes. I also found Rapunzel Rapadura to be an excellent and more nutritious substitute for regular sugar.

      Don't forget exercise especially Yoga helps a lot. And so does meditation. Creating a soothing sacred environment in you home and work place if possible really helps to heal the mind and body. We are really unaware of how our environment and the people we are around affects our bodies and minds.

      I would also recommend staying away from regular cleansers, bleaches, detergents and switching to more natural products that don't hurt the body. We may not realize it but they do end up in our system and affect the organs of hormone secretions. Minimizing use of plastic, styrofoam and other such volatile materials that break down easily and get into our food, water and body directly affect our hormonal health. I no longer use plastic bottles or eat in or with plastic materials. I no longer use the microwave to heat food. I filter my water with a reverse osmosis filter which is very important.

      By the way, a lot of the hormones injected into the cows get defecated and urinated out of the their system and end up in our water supply. It takes months for them to break down and they don't get filtered out before they come through our tap.

      Also, doing liver, kidney and colon cleanses helps quite a bit. Liver health and balance is really important for metabolizing all the hormones and what not in our system.

      These are some ways that have helped and are still helping me to heal from hypothyroidism and hirsutism. It takes time but it works.

  33. QUESTION:
    Who would you call to have your home checked for mold?
    I've had problems with allergies and tried different medications that don't seem to work completely. Mainly i have a lot of throat congestion. I've heard that mold can be the cause. The problem started shortly after i moved into this home.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi JewelAir

      Here are some ideas on how to heal the issue. You also need to learn about cleansing the body of toxins by doing a colon and liver cleanse to heal for long term.

      Cause of Allergies
      Overall, the underlying causes of allergy and sensitivity are dietary and lifestyle factors specifically titled as imbalanced immune function, barrier function default (such as "leaky gut" syndrome), and toxic overload. Each of these are, in varying degrees, responsible for the development and continuation of allergy and sensitivity.

      Herbal Medicine: There are a variety of herbs that offer relief from allergies, such as goldenseal, red sage, and goldenrod. To reduce mucus, try astringents such as yarrow and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha). These help to contract inflamed tissues and reduce secretions and discharges. To strengthen immune response use echinacea, astragalus root, goldenseal root, and Pfaffia paniculata (suma or Brazilian ginseng). These herbs can be effective and safe for treating weakened immune systems.
      Eating raw Garlic and Onions will provide relief as well. The more you use the faster the relief will come.

      Cayenne pepper is a favorite herb among those treating allergy patients. The active ingredient is a strong anti-inflammatory, and it is recommend to allergy suffers, including asthma patients, as a simple and effective treatment. Sprinkling liberal amounts of the pepper on meals for a few days can provide relief. Or better yet eat them raw and sweat for a few minutes. Watch your sinus clear up quickly.

      Although herbal remedies have shown excellent results in reducing allergy/sensitivity symptoms, using herbs to treat allergies involves an individual approach. Some particularly effective anti-inflammatory herbs are stinging nettle, Ginkgo biloba, and licorice. Chinese skullcap, ephedra, and feverfew are others to consider for treating allergy symptoms. Patients whose conditions are severe should consult with a trained herbalist or naturopath.

      A major symptom of allergies is gastrointestinal upset, including bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and nausea. Demulcent herbs can alleviate these symptoms (demulcent is a term used by herbalists to describe an herb that has a protective effect on the mucous membranes by minimizing irritation). The most commonly used herbs are marshmallow, slippery elm bark, cabbage juice, okra, fenugreek, and aloe vera.

      Homeopathy: Homeopathy has widespread applications for the treatment of allergies. In many situations, minute diluted doses of the substance a person is allergic to can be prepared as a homeopathic solution that triggers the body`s natural ability to heal itself.

      Homeopathic remedies are best prescribed by a competent homeopath. Self-diagnosis is discouraged due to the variety of factors that must be considered before the appropriate treatment is selected. However, the following remedies can be helpful: Ferrum phos, lycopodium, and silica.

      Juice Therapy: A juice fast of organic vegetable juices for 2-3 weeks can help detoxify the body, thus improving its ability to cope with allergies. Two useful juice combinations for this purpose are beet, carrot, and cucumber; and carrot and celery. For added benefit, add a small piece of ginger root to either juice combination.

      Best of health to you

It's really buggin him now cuz I got married Saturday and he was trying to suck it up and walk me down the aisle without limping (which I was not that concerned about, I just wanted him to get me down!) and didn't stay off it like he prolly should have this weekend so its even worse, any home remedies you know of that could help? He's got total white coat syndrome as we call it, petrified of the Dr., so if we can get it under control without him having to go it would be best! any tips would be really appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Eating lots of fresh cherries every day is a great cure.My mother has tried it and it worked on her gout in her foot.

      Causes of Gout
      Gout is caused by excessive accumulation of uric acid in the tissues. The underlying cause of uric acid accumulation is unknown, yet research has found that it can basically be attributed to metabolic or kidney problems. Increased production of uric acid may be the result of metabolic enzyme defects, certain types of chronic anemia, or other complex conditions. Dehydration and kidney disease can cause poor clearance of uric acid from the body.

      Proper diet, nutrition, and metabolic balance all play crucial roles in the prevention and treatment of this disease. The conception of gout as a condition of affluence is tenuous, but a heavy diet, particularly organ meats that increase amount of uric acid, and alcohol consumption, can hinder the removal of uric acid by the kidneys.

      Although most people initiate a gout attack through poor lifestyle choices (obesity, rich foods, alcohol), 10%-15% of gout patients have attacks due to a metabolic problem, such as a deficiency of enzymes (xanthine oxidase) and purine imbalances. Purines come from certain foods (meat products, especially liver and other organ meats, sausages and other processed meats, anchovies, crab, shrimp, milk, eggs, and many beans, including soy), but are also normally present, in the form of DNA and RNA in the cells. Purines are broken down into uric acid, which is then normally excreted through the urine.

      Medications, including aspirin and diuretics, can cause gout by putting extra stress on the kidneys; these drugs cause 25% of new gout cases. Kidney stones and other kidney problems are present in 90% of gout sufferers, because urate crystals also accumulate in the kidneys.

      Quick Action Plan for Gout

      1. The goal of diet for those with gout is to reduce the production of uric acid to normal levels. Cherries, and all rich colored berries, such as blueberries, are recommended. Consume half a pound of fresh or unsweetened frozen cherries per day for a period of three to six weeks as a healing protocol.

      2. Organic cherry juice is especially good for gout, as are many of the new "magic juices" such as Goji, Acai and Noni juice, puree or powder. Pomegranate fruit extracts have been shown to be effective as well.

      3. Eliminate alcohol consumption, which both increases uric acid production and reduces uric acid excretion in the kidneys. Gout sufferers should also maintain a low-purine diet, which completely omits organ meats, shellfish, yeast (brewer's and baker's), herring, sardines, mackerel, and anchovies.

      4. Intake of dried legumes, spinach, asparagus, fish, poultry, and mushrooms, should also be curtailed. Refined carbohydrates and saturated fats are best kept to a minimum.

      5. Drink plenty of pure water, because it keeps urine diluted and promotes the excretion of uric acid.

      6. Test for food and environmental allergies and avoid all foods and substances to which you are allergic.

      7. Cleansing and Detoxification, including colon and bowel cleansing therapies, fasting, kidney and gallbladder flushes, physical medicine, and homeopathic remedies.

      8. In clinical trials with gout patients, devil's claw was found to relieve joint pain, as well as reduce blood cholesterol and uric acid levels. For gout sufferers, professionals can recommend: 1-2 g of dried powdered devil's claw root three times a day; 4-5 ml of (1:5) tincture three times a day; or 400 mg of dry solid extract (3:1) three times a day.

      9. The following nutritional supplements are recommended: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 1.8 g daily), vitamin E (400-800 IU daily), folic acid (under a doctor's supervision, 10-40 mg daily), and quercetin with bromelain (125-250 mg three times a day between meals).

      Herbal Aids

      The eliminative organs must be improved. Drink apple cider vinegar with honey and bathe the area in hot apple cider vinegar. To speed healing, take MCP pectin (one teaspoonful three times a day). Herbal teas work well to relieve pain. Tincture of lobelia with apple cider vinegar baths on the afflicted parts is very good. A good herb combination is equal parts of skullcap, valerian, and yarrow taken in tea form to assist in freeing the toxic waste from the tissues and to eliminate the waste through the various excretory organs.

  35. QUESTION:
    My eyes have dark circles and bags under them I donot wear makeup?
    what other remedies can you recomend besides sleep?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many causes of dark circles, from age, heredity, allergies, cold or sinus infection, bone structure and glasses which are not so commonly known.
      http://www.mydarkcirclesblog.com/2006/11/27/causes-of-dark-circles/

      If you would like to apply home remedies to reduce dark circles, here are some of my suggestions:
      Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (e.g. Knox) from grocery store. Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add one tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute. Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel. Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off. Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your dark circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.

  36. QUESTION:
    I am trying to find Homeopathic remedies for high cholesterol?
    If you have had success with a home remedy or herbal suppliment I would love to hear what worked for you.
    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      The first answer is a piece of the puzzle. Oatmeal that is not processed is high in fiber and gently helps to remove toxic build up in the colon. These oats also contain fatty acids. Which are found more plentiful in Flax seeds.

      Omega 3 fatty acids from flax seeds has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels.

      For those who purchase fish oil, make sure its one that has high standards in purity. Meaning, they don't just remove the mercury, but they remove aluminum and other metals as well.

      Phytosterols found in leafy green spinach, cherries, and plant foods can be supplemented in a standardized form. They feed your endocrine system which is responsible for sending out proper hormonal signals. Cholesterol is an anti inflammatory hormone.

      Specific carbohydrates or sugars for proper immune function and not to be confused with sweeteners, are also essential to allowing the body to raise its own glutothione. They are present in nature but no longer plentiful in our modern plant foods. This also must be supplemented.

      The immune system starts in the gut or colon. This is why helping to support the elimination system like apple cider vinegar and such helps to enhance proper digestion. Un-congesting the colon un-congests the liver which is responsible for cholesterol production. Sometimes bad cholesterol lowers with a good cleanse, but its temporary if you don't stay away from refined foods.

      The truth? Cholesterol is a symptom of histamine problems or inflammatory problems, so high cholesterol does not mean its sticking and is not the cause of heart disease.

      Cholesterol drugs block fatty acids (Omega 3's) essential for proper brain function. Thats why the side affects of these drugs are foggy brain or depression.

    Help me get rid of my recurring boils with home made tips.?
    Iam getting boils on my private parts .It is happening soon after my monthly periods.Plz help with some remedies.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Arshia B

      Here are some ideas on how to heal the issue. Learn about detoxifing the blood for long term health (colon and liver cleansing).

      Cause
      The infection is usually due to the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus.

      Recurrent boils can occur in people with decreased immune function, diabetes, chronic gastrointestinal problems, under active thyroid, lowered resistance due to borderline nutrient deficiencies, and chronic emotional stress.

      ------------------------------...

      Natural Cures

      Note: Bursting a boil can spread it, leaving scars, and usually does no good until the core is expelled.

      Aromatherapy: Draw out the boil with bergamot, lavender, chamomile, and clary sage.

      Ayurveda: To bring boil to a head, apply a poultice of cooked onions. Wrap in cloth and do not apply onion directly to boils. Application of a paste of 1/2 teaspoon each of tumeric and ginger powder directly to boil.

      Diet: Eat plenty of green, orange, and yellow vegetables, which are cleansing (try to have at least four different types of green vegetables a day, and keep this up for at least six months). Increase fluids, drinking water throughout the day, and drinking water with juice of fresh lemon and one teaspoon of chlorophyll upon rising and before bed. Also avoid over-consumption of white sugar and white flour products.

      Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy Cream® can be applied (minimum four times a day) on unbroken skin around, but not directly on, boils. Flower essences for negative feelings surrounding the problem, such as Rescue Remedy® to help alleviate stress or Crab Apple for low self-esteem, negative body image, and feeling toxic.

      Herbs: A blend of the tinctures of echinacea, cleavers, and yellowdock in equal parts, taken one teaspoonful three times a day can help speed the healing time for boils. Additionally, drinking a cup of an infusion of nettle, preferably fresh herb, twice a day, can be helpful.

      Homeopathy: Bellis, Belladonna, Hepar sulph., Arnica, Silicea, Apis mel., Arsen alb., and Lachesis are all useful homeopathic remedies that can be taken alone or in combination with each other. Phytolacca is another useful remedy, but it must be taken alone.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. The section: Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water, offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Juice of parsley, spinach, celery, and pineapple may help to purify the blood. As an alternative, beet root juice can also be used, and is a traditional remedy used in Europe to help treat boils.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can all be helpful for treating boils, due to their ability to boost immunity: garlic capsules, kelp, chlorophyll, proteolytic (pancreatic) enzymes (taken on empty stomach two to three times daily away from meals), vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, raw thymus glandular, and zinc.

      For boils compounded by chronic emotional stress, also consider adrenal and thymus glandulars, vitamin B5 (1 gram four times daily), and vitamin C (1 gram every hour).

      Topical Treatment: Apply a mixture of honey, the oil from vitamins E and A, and zinc oxide to the infected areas. Do this several times a day, up to once per hour. Other effective topical treatments include a poultice of goldenseal root powder paste, hot Epsom salt pack (two tablespoons in one cup water), tea tree oil, or a poultice of one part sesame oil and one part lime juice mixed and applied externally.

      Colloidal silver applied topically can also result in marked improvements.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of boils: Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Fasting, Guided Imagery, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Osteopathy, Oxygen Therapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to you

  40. QUESTION:
    What is a quick, naural way to ease constipation?
    To be honest I would like a "home" remedy because I am too shy to buy anything. I eat All-Bran, lots of fruit and veggies....and still its been 3 days and my tummy really hurts. I do drink a lot of water also. I am very "shy" about BM's so I often do not go when I have to ....now I am afraid that I have wrecked my system.

    • ANSWER:
      Home Remedies for Constipation
      Constipation treatment using Bael Fruit
      Generally all fruits, except banana and jack fruit, are beneficial in the treatment of constipation. Certain fruits are, however, more effective. Bael fruit is regarded as the best of all laxatives. It cleans and tones up the intestines. Its regular use for two or three months throws out even the old accumulated faecal matter. It should be preferably taken in its original form and before dinner. About sixty grams of the fruit are sufficient for an adult.

      Constipation treatment using Pear
      Pears are beneficial in the treatment of constipation. Patients suffering from chronic constipation should adopt an exclusive diet of this fruit or it's juice for a few days, but in ordinary cases, a medium-sized pear taken after dinner or with breakfast will have the desired effect.

      Constipation treatment using Guava
      Guava is another effective remedy for constipation. When eaten with seeds, it provides roughage to the diet and helps in the normal evacuation of the bowels. One or two guavas should be taken everyday.

      Constipation treatment using Grapes
      Grapes have proved very beneficial in overcoming constipation. The combination of the properties of the cellulose, sugar, and organic acid in grapes make them a laxative food. Their field of action is not limited to clearing the bowels only. They also tone up the stomach and intestines and relieve the most chronic constipation. One should take at least 350 gm of this fruit daily to achieve the desired results. When fresh grapes are not available, raisins, soaked in water, can be used. Raisins should be soaked for twenty-four to forty-eight hours. This will make them swell to the original size of the grapes. They should be eaten early in the morning, along with the water in which they have been soaked.

      Constipation treatment using Orange
      Orange is also beneficial in the treatment of constipation. Taking one or two oranges at bedtime and again on rising in the morning is an excellent way of stimulating the bowels. The general stimulating influence of orange juice excites peristaltic activity and helps prevent the accumulation of food residue in the colon.

      Constipation treatment using Papaya and Figs
      Other fruits specific for constipation are papaya and figs. Half a medium-sized papaya should be eaten at breakfast for it to act as a laxative. Both fresh and dry figs have a laxative effect. Four or five dry figs should be soaked overnight in a little water and eaten in the morning.

      Constipation treatment using Spinach
      Among the vegetables, spinach has been considered to be the most vital food for the entire digestive tract from time immemorial. Raw spinach contains the finest organic material for the cleansing, reconstruction, and regeneration of the intestinal tract. Raw spinach juice-100 ml, mixed with an equal quantity of water and taken twice daily, will cure the most aggravated cases of constipation within a few days.

      Constipation treatment using Other Remedies
      Half a lime, squeezed is a glass of hot water, with half a teaspoon of salt is also an effective remedy for constipation. Drinking water which has been kept overnight in a copper vessel, first thing in the morning, brings good results. Linseed (alse) is extremely useful in difficult cases of constipation. A teaspoon of linseed swallowed with water before each meal provides both roughage and lubrication.

      Constipation diet
      Natural and simple diet consisting of unrefined foods
      The most important factor in curing constipation is a natural and simple diet. This should consist of unrefined foods such as wholegrain cereals, bran, honey, lentils, green and leafy vegetables, fresh and dry fruits, and milk products in the form of butter, ghee, and cream. The diet alone is not enough.

      Chew food properly, Avoid hurried meals and irregular meals
      Food should be properly chewed. Hurried meals and meals at odd times should be avoided. Sugar and sugary foods should be strictly avoided. Foods which constipate are all products made of white flour, rice, bread, pulses, cakes, pastries, biscuits, cheese, fleshy foods, preserves, white sugar, and hard-boiled eggs.

      Other Constipation treatments
      Fresh air, outdoor games and exercise
      Toning up the muscles also helps in the treatment of constipation. Fresh air, outdoor games, walking, swimming, and exercise play an important role in strengthening the muscles, and thereby preventing constipation.

  46. QUESTION:
    How do I remove dark circles under my eyes?
    My eyes look puffy all the time & I can see wrinkles coming under my eyes. I am really worried , because I am only 21 right now. Please I need your help.

    • ANSWER:
      There are many causes of dark circles, from age, heredity, allergies, cold or sinus infection, bone structure and glasses which are not so commonly known.
      http://www.mydarkcirclesblog.com/2006/11/27/causes-of-dark-circles/

      If you would like to apply home remedies to reduce dark circles, here are some of my suggestions:
      Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (e.g. Knox) from grocery store. Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add one tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute. Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel. Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off.Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your dark circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.

  49. QUESTION:
    What are your top 10 favourite home remedies for congested sinuses? Yes, 10, no cheating! ; ^ )?
    I know this isn't a sinus infection or flu (I've had BOTH this year and this is different). I'm pretty sure it's hayfever/pollen as it's just coming into spring here in Aus. I've got some over the counter medications and I'm downing Green Tea and spicy chili basil chicken. What are YOUR ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      1) Look at giving up dairy permanently.
      2) Ginger tea
      3) Look at using a neti pot--that is snorting warmed salted water. Works GREAT. Low tech. Low cost. Easy and good fer ya.
      4) Hot yourself up and put lots of chilis and cayenne in your body.
      5) If you decide you are having congested sinuses caused by allergies, look at Bioallers products. They've helped me alot.
      6) Put lots of fresh lemon and lime juice in your drinking water and diet. This really helps me!
      7) Look at purchasing some feverfew capsules or tincture. This is a classic simple for hayfever/allergy symptoms, and is not terribly expensive.
      8) Buy homeopathic Sabadilla or Solidago or Pulsatilla. Read some books about the homeopathic treatment of disease for the layperson such as Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine by Dana Ullman or (my preference) Homeopathic Medicine At Home by Maesimund Panos and Jane Heimlich. This should get you started. Homeopathic medicine is great, b/c it's inexpensive, highly effective, non-toxic and if you choose the wrong remedy for your symptom profile, it simply will not work, it won't hurt you.
      9) Put tons of greens and fresh veggies in your diet and massively cut down on the red meats, eggs and full fat (sometimes even ALL) dairy. Allergies are made much worse by eating lots of these foods.
      10) Go on a liver/gallbladder and colon cleanse using French clay and tonifying liver herbs. E-mail me if you want more info about this. In TCM, (Traditional Chinese Medicine), there is a huge relationship between the health of your colon and the health of your respiratory system.

  50. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of Human Parasites?
    I just received a paper on unhealthy colons. That doctors finally discovered the real cause of 90% of all diseases. It is unhealthy colons. The Natural Medicine Association have come up with a cure and to get rid of the parasites that may and are living in our colons. The program they have is so costly at the start of .95.
    I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows a cheaper way to cleanse the human body of parasites?
    The symptoms are...
    Constipation or diarrhea, chronic yeast infections, chronic fungus on hand/toe nails or nails become brittle or lost their luster.
    Getting sick or catching colds often, weight problems or rapid weight gain, acne, skin disorders,or skin dry or pal, mood swings or depression, premenstrual syndrome more intensified, low sex drive, lack of concentration, short term memory problems ,sleeping problems, being easily prone to diseases, frequent headaches, chronic urinary tract irritation/infections, arthritic bone pains,allergies,gas,ex....
    Why don't someone just put dewormer for humans on the market? They found it simple to for animals..why not humans?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a colon detoxification program called Colonix that I have been using for the past three months. It's a three-part program, part of which focuses on the removal of intestinal parasites. That part of the program is called Paranil, and it consists of four capsules a day, followed by a large glass of water. It's a proprietary herbal blend, containing things like garlic, black walnut hulls, and tons of other things.

      Although the entire program costs .00 for a one month supply, the Paranil is sold seperately for .00 a bottle (and it's even cheaper if you buy three at a time.)

      http://www.drnatura.com

      There are lots of other herbal parasite programs out there; you might check GNC or health food/vitamin stores to compare prices. The reason I suggested Paranil is because I've taken it myself, and the website has literally hundreds of positive verifiable testimonials. It's worth a look, anyway... as I said, I've been on the whole program for three months and I'm very impressed with it.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is it true that if you drink one beer a day it helps your body?
    I've heard if you do one drink a day as in a beer, just one, no more. THat is supposed 2 help your body flush out toxins or something? Is it beneficial if it is one a day? I am not a drinker, never have been, I just had it as a random question in my mind.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes.
      Moderation with alcohol and all things is key to a good life.

      Flushing toxins...?

      http://www.allaboutbeer.com/features/233beer&health.html
      http://www.essortment.com/all/beerhealthbene_rryq.htm

      Ethanol, B-vitamins, folate, and antioxidant compounds in beer make it more healthy than red wine.

      American Heart Association: "There is no clear evidence that wine is more beneficial than other forms of alcoholic drink."

      Much research has shown that it is ethyl alcohol in moderation that contributes to coronary health. Beer, wine, or spirits]

      Resveratrol found in grape especially the seed and in hops are believed to counter cancer-MAYBE.
      Resveratrol, still believed by some to be an active ingredient in making red wine the best bet for countering atherosclerosis, reared its head again in the issue of counter obesity. A study at the Harvard Medical School and the National Institute on Aging found that mice dosed with reveratrol were better able to overcome the negative impacts of high-calorie diets. The slight problem is that for the same benefits to apply to the human when taking into consideration the amount of reveratrol found in red wine, the wine aficionado would need to consume somewhere between 750 and 1,500 botttles of plonk a day.

      Incidentally, Sonia Collin and her colleagues from the Catholic University of Louvain have found resveratrol in hops. No longer can the wine folks claim it as their molecule alone!

      When it comes to breast cancer, one of the most highly publicized of the carcinomas, there is very much a mixed bag of evidence. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has concluded that chronic alcohol consumption increases a woman's chances of developing risk, certainly not from moderate drinking. The influential Framingham Study drew the conclusion that moderate alcohol consumption does not increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

      Indeed, here we must consider matters holistically, as surely should be the case in all investigations into these sensitive topics. For it has been claimed by the Mayo Clinic that folate counters the risk of contracting breast cancer-and we should all know by now that beer can be a plentiful source of this vitamin.

      Antioxidant
      In actual fact, one needs to be very cautious when relating studies made in the test-tube to effects on the living body. It is important that the antioxidants are demonstrated to actually enter the body and reach the parts that matter. For instance, it had been sugested that although the antioxidant levels in red wine are at substantially higher levels than thaey are in beer, the large size of many of them makes for poor absorbability. In contrast, it was proven by Ghisselli, Natella, and Guidi that the blood plasma does actually contain the antioxidants after somebody has consumed beer, ergo they are getting into the circulation. Denise Baxter, working with colleagues from Guys Hospital, London, demonstrated that one antioxidant, ferulic acid, penetrates the digestive system far better from beer than it does from tomatoes.

  2. QUESTION:
    how to loss weight safely and what tips and steps you can use to effectively shred those unwanted pounds any?
    If you want to lose weight, you're not alone. Almost half of all Americans are trying to lose weight at any given time.While there are many things you can do to shed pounds, losing weight too quickly can be dangerous. Fad diets, diet pills, and fasting may help you reduce the number on the scale, but these methods can cause severe health complications. However, if you are generally healthy and you're determined to drop several pounds quickly, there are some techniques and tips you can adopt to help you reach your short-term goals.

    Here are a couple of example that are helpful for people trying to loss weight safely.

    The Water Diet:This diet involves drinking a daily total of about 64 fluid ounces (8 cups) of cold (preferably refrigerated) water, at regular intervals.

    Drink a glass of water before each meal and before each snack to suppress your appetite by making you feel fuller.
    Do not add sweeteners or flavorings to your water.
    Do not replace meals with water.
    Take a daily multivitamin to replenish the nutrients lost through more frequent urination.

    Juice Detox Diet, Juice Fast, or Hollywood Diet. Although there are many variations on a juice detoxification fast or crash diet, they generally last for one to three days.

    You can only drink fruit and vegetable juices on this type of fad diet.
    Some variations of this diet involve taking vitamins or nutrients along with the juices, while others let you have a single meal per day.
    The juices are meant to help your body flush out toxins and eliminate several pounds of (mostly) water weight from your system.
    you can also check out this website to get more helpful information http://f4774d7h4pigi9dx3qtqjdr6yw.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=LOSS WEIGHT FEEL GOOD

    • ANSWER:
      Your suggestion is good too. But the main fact of loosing weight is control over food and doing physical exercise regularly. So anyone can loose his weight. But Sometimes after taking this precautions and agenda some of the people cant loos their weight. In that case they need to take some pills as well. This is what i used to do.

  3. QUESTION:
    Should I do a Liver Cleanse if my Gallbladder has been removed?
    I read a book and I think my stalled weight loss despite Lap Band surgery, low calorie, lots of exercise and small portions could be due to fatty liver. Want to cleanse it. Have read Fat Flush diet and Ultra Metabolism. Don't want to get sick though. Can I do a cleanse if I have no gallbladder?

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, there are several total-body cleanses available at your local health food store. Most are safe, effective, and gentle. Ask the clerks which one they would recommend for you.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is detox flu part of the body's processes of flushing out toxins?
    After using bentonite clay for a few days, I did come down with a flu for a few days, but there was no high fever. I had the muscle/bone aches, blocked nose/sore throat and mucus. If detox flu is common, I want to know how the body flushes out toxins by using flu, or if people just come down with a flu during this time?

    • ANSWER:
      Flu symptoms ARE a sign that the body is detoxifying, whether you are using bentonite clay (or any other detox protocol) or not. Anytime someone gets sick, it is a warning sign of pH imbalances within the body - more acidic than alkaline. When the body becomes too acidic, it will try to expel the acid residues from every orifice the body has. Detox symptoms are very commonly felt by those who are acidic.

      A toxin is another term for acid. What we eat, breathe, drink and put on our skin brings the outside world in. Our bodies will naturally process these. When undesirable substances enter the body and gets processed, it turns to an acid ash - considered a toxin. So, most toxins are wastes from cellular activity and also digestive waste. Other toxins are heavy metals, foreign proteins, etc.

      The health of a person determines how quickly a germ, virus, bacteria, fungus is processed and expelled from the body and how harsh the symptoms are felt. If a person eats an alkalizing diet, sleeps well, gets enough exercise, handles stresses well, etc., they will get over an illness quicker as the acids will be reversed by the alkalizing effects. If one wants to do a detox, it should have the same over-all alkalizing effect. The only effect of most colon cleanses is the action of purging "crap," which does very little to help in alkalizing the body. (Although, safe and natural herbal formulas to aid in clearing the colon should be used for those who have major issues with bowel movements.)

      While you have flu or any bad symptoms, it is important that you rest as much as possible - save on the energy your body needs to detoxify itself. And, drink lots of alkaline fluids (pure water + fresh fruit juices) to help correct the issues - heal.

  5. QUESTION:
    does your body start flushing when you diet?
    basically i have recently started dieting and i have been cutting down. and 3days into it my body just completely flushed, is this normal or what?
    i dont no..
    thankyou in advance, sophie(:

    • ANSWER:
      By "flushing" do you mean blushing or do you mean that had a dose of diarrhea which totally cleared you out.

      If you it is the latter then you may have cut down too quickly.

      In either case I'd advise you to see your Doctor or a Nurse at your local Health Center. They will be able to advise you on the best diet for you AND and whether or not you need to lose any weight and if so how much.

      If it's diarrhea they you may be cutting down on the wrong things. Sometimes you just need to change something rather than cut it out. For instance rather than white bread use wholemeal or brown bread. As I said, your Doctor or Nurse will be able to advise you better.

  6. QUESTION:
    How can i tell if my body is flushing out excess vitamins or is just unable to absorb the vitamins?
    Started taking a multi vitamin (one a day type), and I just flushed out some neon yellow urine.

    I Googled it up, turns out to be a b vitamin in my urine causing this.

    Then I wondered, is it excess or is it just not absorbed?

    I took it to help overcome my constant lethargicness in the day, its almost noon and I'm starting to feel tired as in sleepy.

    • ANSWER:
      The only way to tell is to have the fasting blood work done one year at your annual exam, take your vitamins for the full year, eat the same, change no other variable. At the next year's exam, when your blood is drawn and analyzed, compare the two profiles, the previous year's and the current year's. If you are feeling lethargic early in the day, there might be other explanations. One has to do with medications you may be taking and side effects. The other might have to do with your breakfast food. Most of the B vitamins are in grain products. Vegans need to supplement B 12 as it is found in meat. Niacin is usually in fortified wheat. General diet should provide what you need and in a better form for absorption. The evidence of yellow might just mean that the vitamin had artificial coloring which was eliminated via the urine.

  7. QUESTION:
    Why does diet pop leave a taste in your mouth?
    And I'm not talking about the after taste that you get right after you drink it. I don't drink pop at all very often but I had a diet coke today at noon. It is now 8pm and I have a sweet type taste in my mouth. I only get this when I drink something with aspertame in it??? Why?

    I would think that my body would have flushed it out by now. I drink plenty of water?

    Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      That is why I dont drink Diet Coke because of the taste it leaves in my mouth.
      I drink Diet Dr Pepper!!

  8. QUESTION:
    Do you recommend a detox to start off a diet?
    There are a lot of diets that suggest/require a detox, some of them going as long as 2 weeks of just veggies and fruit. Some suggest the use of flaxseed, hot lemon water, and cranberry juice.

    Is it safe?

    One diet that I wanted to try was the Fat Flush Diet (I think that's what it's called...it's by the doctor that counsels contestants on Celebrity Fit Club).

    Any other diets that require a detox? Any that you recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      it would be wise to do a detoxifier, cause your body would be able to perform better. after you flush the impurities from your system, your digestive tract would absorb nutients better.

  9. QUESTION:
    Is there anything in a daily Multivitamin that can do more harm than good when taken in excess?
    For example, if I were getting a surplus of vitamins from my diet, would that have any negative effects or would my body simply just flush them out?

    Just wondering.

    • ANSWER:
      Some vitamins are very damaging. Excess iron is problematic. Vitamin C can block the functioning of Vitamin D (a hormone). Also, vitamin supplements are far more difficult to prove effective unless there is a deficiency. Some studies have showed a negative effect. Sadly, the quality assurance associated with supplements and vitamins are poor. Contaminants are common.

      There are tens of thousands of chemical reactions in the human body that we know about and a lot more that we don't. Science is yet to discover all the nutrients and vitamins in existence and probably will never uncover them all. The only way to assure health is by eating a wide variety of whole plant based foods. I suggest that you study Dr. Neal Barnard for details about optimal eating.

      One clue, an optimal diet is devoid of most processed and refined foods including excess salt, excess sugar, refined oils, and food supplements and additives.

  10. QUESTION:
    Can anyone suggest a cleanse or juice cleanse?
    I want to start losing some weight and clean out my body / flush it of all the leftover bad crap that is in it. Recently I have been drinking alot of beer etc and eating poorly. I have heard there are 5 or 10 day diets that are good for starting this. You lose some weight and really clean yourself out. After the 5 or 10 days I don't plan on going back to drinking beer and eating crap, I plan on taking better care of myself. Can anyone suggest a cleanse? I want to go to the grocery store today and get what I need...

    • ANSWER:
      Google, "the Master Cleanse". I've known some nutritionists, yoga instructors, and actors who have tried this method to lose weight and get rid of toxins. I beleive you drink the mixture (water, maple syrup grade B, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper), for 1-10 days, depending on your level of commitment. I also read that Jared Leto used this method to lose the thirty pounds he put on for a movie role.
      But, google and read up on it first...I'm not a health expert.

  11. QUESTION:
    What is a good body cleanse that will help me lose a little bit of weight and clear up my skin?
    Preferably a 7-day one or something I don't need to be on for too long. I know there are a lot of them out there and wondering if anyone has any positive experiences with any? Also, I diet and exercise so I'm not planning on relying on it for weight loss, just to shed a few extra pounds and to make me feel better. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I have done body cleanses and find them to not be that great, basically you have to poop a lot, like 3x a day if not more. You lose maybe a couple pounds but that is only because your body is flushing everything you eat out so fast, so you actually are not losing anything and it all comes back when you are done. Your skin will not be great during because you are excreting all your toxins so breakouts will surface and your sweat will be a little more smelly, but 1/2 way through it stops and you are good again. Honestly i don't think it is worth it and i wouldn't do it again.

  12. QUESTION:
    What are quick diets to jump start a sensible diet plan?
    I want a quick 1-7 day quick diet to jump start my regular diet. Just to flush out toxins and to get my body ready for diet and workout. Please help

    • ANSWER:
      changing your diet to only healthy foods is the best thing you can do and will ensure you will lose weight if combine with walking everyday especially.

      you can eat how much you like if you stay within these 3 guidelines and still lose fat naturally and gradually. You should lose 10lbs each month on average.

      1.eat only steamed lean meats, eggs, healthy fruits ,vegetables, nuts, grains (Asian basmati or jasmine rice gives lots of energy and can be found at your local oriental/asian market or some super markets), & yogurt..2. drink only water, juice, & milk..3. walk or do some physical exercise 1-3 hour every day.

      (btw, recommend you also to buy an electronic food steamer and a rice cooker ((Both Very cheap)) .which, used together make it very easy to prepare very nutritional, healthy meals ,,add a bit of olive oil , diced garlic, pepper, sliced lemon and spices on top of steamed vegeatables, fish or chicken to add more taste if wish as these are healthy too.)

  13. QUESTION:
    What do you think of the 'cleansing' or 'flush' diets?
    I've been reading a lot about it on the internet, and I've seen many opinions saying that diet wise, it's the easiest and fastest way to lose weight. But then there are the negative opinions saying that drinking only water for 3 days is damaging to your health and extremely dangerous.

    So what is your opinion on this new dieting plan?
    Do you think it's dangerous and risky?

    • ANSWER:
      Its not dangerous at ALL.
      Thats a myth people believe because they think your starving yourself.

      Are you fasting to cleanse your body also?

      If you are, that's definitely the way to go. I mean think of it this way,
      the point of fasting is to rid all the toxins from the body and lose weight right? Think of all those hidden toxins in those artificial flavors and tastes...

      Ive lost 13 pounds in 8 days of Pure water fasting, But as soon as you start eating again you ll gain it all back & maybe more cause you metabolism is slower than EVER. That's what happened to me, but im more educated on this and im gonna start again.

      And If you have anything else besides water, your cravings will be SO much more Intense. Wich is like pure torture to me lol!

      Im sure you ll loose a ton even with out working out, you will be using the fat on your body as energie, you ll be burning carbs like crazy doing you normal routine a day.

      But with out food you ll have NO energie trust me, and your heart will be trying to rest as much as possible, it could be dangerous if you labor yourself too much... (fainting, hyperventilating) ect.

      the pro side is that after everything youll feel more energetic and eat less normaly. Youll be pure !

      Good luck! & stay strong = )

Is therw anything i can do to regain strength without giving up on my diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Apples are known to keep the doctor away, but recent studies have shown that three apples a day can also help you lose weight. The effectiveness of three apples a day was first noticed by dietitian Tammi Flynn who advised her clients to have an apple at mealtimes. This enabled her clients to break the weight loss plateau even when their diet and lifestyle wasn’t changed.

      Why Whole Fruit is Better
      Apples are a good source of vitamins, minerals and fiber and they are low in fat, sodium and calories. They can make you feel full for longer as the fiber they contain expands in the stomach. Hence, you require less food to satisfy your hunger. Apples should therefore be eaten just before every meal. The fiber is contained in the skin so you should ensure that you always eat unpeeled apples for greater health benefits.

      Advantages of Eating Apples
      Apples contain high levels of antioxidants and minerals, and low levels of sodium. Thus, they help prevent water retention in the body. They also help to detoxify the body by flushing out excess water from the body. Most importantly, apples are low on the hypoglycemic index. This means that consuming apples doesn’t increase your blood sugar. Instead, apples help to keep your blood sugar levels under control. Apples are also good for the heart as they contain high concentrations of pectin. Pectin keeps blood cholesterol under control by drawing the cholesterol out of the blood stream. Apples and apple sauce have been associated with better lung function and apple extracts have also been known to reduce the growth rate of breast cancer, but it’s best, in general, to eat apples in their raw form.

      Precautions
      It’s better to eat the fruit rather than drink the juice or have apple sauce because the juice and the sauce don’t contain as much fiber, vitamins or minerals as the fruit. Juices and sauces also contain added sugar and preservatives, and are more harmful than beneficial for your health. You must ensure that you rinse apples with water before eating them, as supermarkets generally wax apples to make them look attractive.

      Here are some tips to losing weight:
      If you want to lose weight and keep the weight off, it's not enough to reduce your diet. You'll have to exercise as well. If you're not used to exercise, start by walking for 30 minutes a day, then if you can manage that, gradually increase the time and your speed.

      Give up drinking alcohol.

      Avoid diet drinks such as Diet Coke and Diet 7up. They have no calories, but they taste as if they do, so your body will become confused. Drink mineral water when you are thirsty, with a little orange juice or apple juice added if you don't like the taste or water.

      Eat lots of vegetables with protein every day and reduce the amount of meat you eat.

    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.

    What is a simple diet that consist 3 meals that have a total of 114g of protein, 2130 calories & 578 carbs? I dont like to cook so Im looking for something that will be pretty easy to make.

    • ANSWER:
      protien powder will cover about half your protien, but as i understand it your body will only metabolize 56-60 g of protien in a day, it flushes the rest. You need a varity in your diet, so dont stick to three meals ! billy bob thorton almost died in his 20s because he had 2 baked potatoes a day, his iron reached toxic amounts in 6 months!

  17. QUESTION:
    what are toxins? And why do you flush them from your body?
    I have heard from numerous doctors that there is no such thing as "toxins", and that your body naturally flushes anything out.
    So what are these toxins that people are talking about? And where do they build up? And why would a diet flush these "toxins" out?

    • ANSWER:
      Toxins are basically food or environmental factors that cause disease or poor health. Its a very broad term, thats why doctors discredit it. Basically everything you eat and breathe contributes to your health and the chemical balance of your body. Nutrition is the key factor in health. Excess consumption of denatured or processed foods, drugs, or other "toxic" substances can cause vitamin and mineral imbalances in your body. A "cleanse" helps your body renew itself from the effects of such an imbalance. However, cleansing can be useless in the long run because many people will do it short term and then go back to their unhealthy diets not long afterwards. It takes a lifestyle diet change for the effects of good health to kick in.

      http://undressedskeleton.tumblr.com/Examplemeals
      I suggest following the example diet plans and stick to the calories limit.
      Working out will really speed up the process, however 70% of weight loss is diet and only 30% is exercise.
      As for diet pills I suggest mega-T green tea diet pills(Natural supplement) which really suppresses appetite.
      Take as directed.

      In the mornings you should take gluccomannan , its like a straight fiber product from konjac root, take it 35 minutes before breakfast and it also suppresses your appetite and makes your body flush fat.

      Remember: Always push yourself... or else a month from now you will say "Damn, i could of had the weight off by now!" thats what kept me going.

    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.

  20. QUESTION:
    How does using laxatives as a diet product work for people with eating disorders?
    How do these people end up losing weight by using laxatives? I don't mean to be gross, but isn't the poo just food that has already been digested? Therefore, the fat and calories are already absorbed into the body? I don't understand why people would want to do this to themselves. I could not imagine having bowel cramps all day and needing to stay near a toilet at all times, just for the sake of losing a few pounds, when it probably does not work anyway.

    • ANSWER:
      you can lose a lot of water weight too. It comes right back on after you normalize your hydration.

      most laxatives work by drawing water into the intestines (making a flush) - once you re-hydrate after a couple of days you add the weight right back. Also, this can cause an electrolyte imbalance so its not smart/

  21. QUESTION:
    What are the dangers related to flush or detox diets?
    Information related to diets such as fruit and vegetable fasts, cleansing, etc can be included.

    • ANSWER:
      Detox is essential to cleanse your body. Especially, there substances in our food that cannot be digested. When they stay back in digestive system, they could accumulate into a hard mass causing a lot of problems. But, detox methods could cause problems as well. They might flush out good bacteria necessary for digestion and other useful substances in the body. This could lead to digestive problems, dehydration or malnutrition.

      So, the best thing to do would be opt for natural cleaners as you have rightly pointed out in your question. I will give you a link where I found some home made remedies for detoxification.

      http://aboutwomenshealthissues.com/how-to-detox-your-body-with-home-made-remedies/2009/

      These are simple things that you should be able to try out at home. However, remember that you should not repeat the detox process frequently. So, even before you choose the right method to suit you, just do a research on the method, make sure it does not have any side effects and make an informed decision. Good luck!

  22. QUESTION:
    What is the Fat Flush Diet? Any detox ideas?
    I'm hearing alot about a program called the Fat Flush Diet. Does anybody know exactly what it's about? I wanted to start a program that is a sort of detox for the body, but I didn't want to change my diet. I was interested in taking vitamins/supplements that combined will increase weight loss. Any ideas?
    Just an additional detail: I'm too lazy to change my diet, so any programs that aid detox is my primary interest. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think its possible to detox your bopdy without at least temporarily changing your diet. I am currently doing the Master Cleanse 10-day cleanse wheich is hell, but worth it.

      Dr. Natura is a website that advertises a pretty intense colon cleanser.

      But nothing will truely "detox" your body unless you go without. Sort of like an alcoholic "detoxing" by drinking alcohol. Not going to work, right?

      If you're interested in losing weight, check out the Body For Life Program. It does require a change in diet depending on what your diet currently is, but it is the most health conscious of all programs I've seen and sets up guidelines for life-long healthy eating and exercises, as opposed to atkins or south beach which are either hard to follow or too strict or both. There is nothing you can't have while doing the Body For LIfe Program but the key is when to eat and in what amounts. Check into it.

  23. QUESTION:
    Is there a diet to go by to lose fat below the belly button and thighs more effectively?
    I've been on a low-carb/low-sugar diet since March, and excercise out the wazoo. I do cardio activity everyday 60-90 minutes, and stability ball excercises for my lower belly fat and thighs I'm trying shed (but won't go!!!) . I was not that overweight to begin with, which is why for 5 months all I could lose was no more than 12 lbs. But I have very stubborn fat in these areas that will not go. I do crunches, too. I've exhausted all avenues and have no clue what else to do. Could it be because that even tho my diet consists of fruit, vegetable, meat, dairy, nuts, beans, & whole-wheat bread --- that it's in high fat grams that I can't lose weight? My diet is low-calorie (as all low-carb/low-sugar diets are) I take in no more than 1400-1600 calories a day, but it's high in fat grams. Could my diet be hindering fat loss in lower-belly / thighs? Or are there other things I need to be doing amidst the diet and workouts?

    • ANSWER:
      Helpful Tips for weight loss:

      1)A good way to loose weight is to use a calorie counter watch

      Keep to a 1,200 food intake

      Add 1,200 plus 3,500 (equals one pound of fat) ...and that is the total amount of calories you need to burn each day. Its actually really easy once you start watching the numbers and it doesn't seem like work or exercise. Its just a matter of changing the way you think about loosing weight.

      I use this method when i gain some pounds. The first time I did this I went from 168 to 127

      2) Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 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.

    What is the best body cleanse to lose those last few pounds?
    So I am a month away from a vacation and I want to lose those last few pounds. I work out 6 days a week (not crazy though 3 hard days mixed with easy days and yoga) , I have a balanced diet, protein shakes, and take vitamins. I want to do it in a healthy way but I wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion for a good cleanse. Thank you!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
      There is no "build up" of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
      Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with "mucoid plaque", we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
      We "cleanse and detox" 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.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      A high fiber diet works every time.
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.

  25. QUESTION:
    Will a detoxing diet help you lose fat or just water weight?
    If i go on a detoxing diet, i want to lose fat. So i will be working out for atleast an hour a day too. Detoxing diets seems like it only helps you lose water weight.

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to lose fat, why detox? Detox doesn't work, never worked, is not possible, and never has been possible. You can lose fat simply by eating a healthy diet and cutting portions to create a caloric deficit. The detox myth is not about fat, it's about some silly idea that you can purify your body.

      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 the following references because you've probably been getting your information from unreliable sources.

      "'Cleansing' diets may be worthless"
      http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/detox-diets-purging-myths

      "A day on a detox diet program probably won't hurt you, but there's little point in following these restrictive diets - and they can do far more harm than good, says Michelle May, MD,"
      http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=64306

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

      "The human body can defend itself very
      well against most environmental insults and the effects of occasional indulgence. If you’re generally healthy, stick to giving your body what it needs to maintain its own detox system— a healthful diet, adequate fluid intake, regular exercise, sufficient sleep, and all recommended medical check-ups. Don’t waste your money...follow a healthy, balanced lifestyle instead."

      You can find your own links debunking the detox diets, master cleanses, and other such nonsense by Googling "detox diet myth" or searching USA.gov for your appropriate key words.

      The way to detox is to stop ingesting toxins and let your body cleanse itself naturally. If you have, for example, THC in your blood from smoking pot, there is no food, no flush, no purge, no cleanse that will make it go away. Your body will metabolize and excrete it naturally given sufficient time. 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. Forget detox. If you want to burn fat, do this.

      Eat a diet of varied, wholesome, and high quality foods such that your daily caloric intake is about 500 calories less than your daily caloric burn while keeping your macronutrient ratios at about 55/25/20 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein) and not doing anything to defeat the foregoing plan such as taking supplements, drinking alcohol, abusing drugs, using cleanses or emetics, etc. That's it. It's that simple.

      Here's the only two websites you need to do that.
      1. This site has a wide range of information about foods, fat, diets, and exercise with calculators, diet tips, food facts, etc. ---> http://www.freedieting.com/

      2. This website is a great way to track calories, macronutrients, water, and exercise. It also does all the math for you and makes it super easy to look up foods to enter into your online food intake diary.

  26. QUESTION:
    What is the role of water in diet and weight loss?
    I was just wondering if water helps you lose weight. Every diet and weight loss plan includes the 'drink lots of water' sentence. If it doesn't, what part does it play apart from being a healthier substitute for soft drinks?

    • ANSWER:
      It fills your stomach, therefore you will not be as hungry. There's no sugar or unhealthy elements in water, which makes it the perfect drink to fill your stomach with. Also, it helps flush out toxins and other unwanted products that maybe occupying your digestive system.

      When dieting, exercise is also important. In that sense, water helps people stay hydrated. This fact cannot be stressed enough. Not only does it help produce sweat, which cools the body down, but during all exercises, muscles are broken and need to be repaired by the body. Water helps this recovery period so staying hydrated is essential.

  27. QUESTION:
    What is the diet for liver infected patients?
    Please let me know the diet to be taken by liver infected patients. After infection getting cured what kind of precautions to be taken in diet.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) or primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) you may need to change your diet as the way you digest fats may be altered. In order to digest fat we need bile. This is a yellowish acid made in the liver and stored in a pear-shaped bag called the gallbladder. It is squirted into the small intestine where it acts as a detergent, breaking fat into tiny droplets so it can be absorbed by the body.
      With PBC and PSC the flow of bile into the gut may be reduced, particularly if you are jaundiced, so you may find you cannot tolerate the same amount of fat as normal. In this situation you develop a type of diarrhoea, known as steatorrhoea, which causes bulky, pale faeces/stools that are difficult to flush away. It can cause nausea and a sick, bloated feeling.
      If this happens, you may find that eating less fat in the diet will help to reduce the problems and symptoms of this fatty diarrhoea. However, fat is essential – it contains the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as essential fatty acids – and should not be cut out of your diet completely without proper advice from a dietician. People vary in the amount of fat they can tolerate so this does not mean you will necessarily need to eat a strict, low-fat diet. Most people find they are able to work out how much fat they can take by trial and error by reducing amounts of the higher fat foods.
      Improvement in bowel habit shows that your body is tolerating the amount of fat you are eating. Stools will become less frequent, darker and easier to flush away. If you are reducing fat in your diet and do not need to lose weight, top up calories with snacks between meals, for example, toast, crackers, crumpets or tea-cakes. Your dietician can help you with this.
      Cutting down on fat
      If you want to cut down on the fat you eat you need to avoid ‘hidden’ fats as well as the obvious ones you can see in meat and greasy foods. The list below gives examples of high-fat foods and ideas for alternatives.
      Butter, margarine, lard, dripping – try using low fat spreads.
      Cream and full-cream milk – substitute half-fat versions. There is as much calcium (needed for healthy bones) in half-fat or skimmed as there is in full-cream milk.
      Cheese – you may be able to tolerate small amounts of normal cheese, or try lower-fat hard cheese. Try reduced-fat spreads and cottage cheese.
      All kinds of cooking oil including olive oil, sunflower and vegetable oil – use these sparingly.
      Fatty meats, such as duck and belly pork – eat more fish, poultry, lean red meat, beans and eggs.
      Meat products such as sausages and pies – you may be able to eat small amounts of these.
      Chips, crisps and nuts – try oven-chips instead.
      Biscuits, cakes and pastry – try low-fat alternatives such as teacakes, scones and low-fat cakes or biscuits.
      Many processed foods are high in fat – for example pizza, lasagne, ready-made curry or other dishes. Eat only small amounts or use a low-fat version.
      Cooking with less fat
      The list below gives some ideas on how to reduce the amount of fat you use in cooking.
      Grill, bake, boil, steam or casserole meals instead of frying.
      Add flavour with fresh herbs, spices, lemon juice and mustard. Curry powder and hot spices should be avoided as they may make symptoms worse.
      Trim visible fat off meat and remove the skin from poultry.
      Skim fat off the surface of soups and casseroles.
      If you are cutting down the fat in your diet you should try to eat extra carbohydrate to make up any shortfall in energy. This means more starch and sugar – bread and honey, for example. Take advice from a dietician to make sure you are getting enough calories, protein and vitamins. Some people may also need monthly injections of fat-soluble vitamins.
      Coping with acidity
      Some people with PBC may experience an unpleasant acid taste in the mouth or they may get heartburn – a severe burning sensation in the chest. Stomach acids escaping into your food pipe (oesophagus) are the usual cause of this discomfort. If this happens to you, then try eating little and often to reduce stomach acid. It is a good idea to get into the habit of carrying food around with you, in case you need to eat. Foods that contain carbohydrates – such as crackers, plain biscuits or breadsticks – are the best. If symptoms persist try:
      avoiding big meals at night
      taking an antacid before bed and after meals
      raising the head of your bed by four or five inches
      Fatty Liver
      Fatty liver is a condition in which too much fat builds up in the liver. You are more at risk of this if you tend to put on weight around your middle – ‘apple-shaped’ as opposed to ‘pear-shaped’. The fat stored in the liver is just the same as that under the skin. So, if you cut down on fatty foods and lose weight you will also lose fat from the liver. For the majority of people in the UK, the root causes of becoming overweight are down to:
      eating too much, especially too much fatt

    What diet pills are good to use with a weight loss program?
    I have wanted to lose some weight, and I managed to drop about 7 pounds just by eating better and jogging 3 days a week, and doing at least an hour of exercises every day.

    I wanted to know, what is the best diet supplement pill to use with a program? My metabolism has become slower as I got older so I need some thing that will help give me a boost.

    • ANSWER:
      Follow these 10 tips for fat burning if you want to lose weight and lead a healthier way of life.

      1.) Drink More Water

      One of the best weight loss secrets is to ditch the sodas and stick to water! Experts say you should drink approximately eight glasses of water a day to stay hydrated and healthy. Instead of turning to calorie-laden or sugar-rich drinks, grab a refreshing glass of water. In addition to flushing toxins out of your system, drinking water encourages you to build muscle.

      2.) Eat More Meals

      A traditional three-meals-a-day plan just will not cut it if you are in the market to burn fat. Your body is not able to metabolize large meals and will quickly turn any excess into fat. Many experts believe you should eat six small meals a day. Be sure you cut back on your food consumption at each meal, or else you will be doubling your intake—and doubling your fat storage!

      3.) Work Out with Weights

      One great way to maximize the amount of fat you are burning is to add a weight program to your work out routine. Weight training will not only tone your physique, but will strengthen your body and improve your general health. Lifting weights will also burn calories and fat more quickly than traditional exercising, and it will also boost your metabolism.

      4.) Choose Protein

      Choose protein-laden foods for boosting your metabolism and enabling your body to burn fat rapidly. In addition to burning fat, consuming a protein-enriched diet will help you rebuild muscle after work outs and maintain leanness of that muscle. Wisely choose proteins for your diet. Take great care to pick proteins low in fat so you do not consume extra calories.

      5.) Cut Calories Wisely

      It may be tempting to drastically cut your calorie intake when starting a healthy lifestyle. Instead, use a step method when cutting your calorie intake to minimize risk. Reducing calories too quickly results in your body rapidly burning all available calories, which will lower your metabolism. Furthermore, you are more likely to maintain your healthy lifestyle through this step method.

      6.) Reward Yourself

      When it comes to successfully dieting to burn the most fat, be sure to reward yourself. Everyone has temptations and favorite treats—so allow indulgence. You will be less likely to cheat on your new diet if you grant yourself small rewards. If you are a chocolate lover, treat yourself to a small square of chocolate or single chocolate kiss each evening.

      7.) Avoid Marathon Work Outs

      The biggest mistake people make when looking to burn fat and lose weight is to have one long, extensive work out session. Instead, break up your work out plan into small chunks throughout the day. Take a brisk walk in the morning, enjoy a work out at lunch, and then exercise more in the evening. In addition to staying active all day long, breaking up your work out will better maintain your metabolism.

      8.) Mix It Up

      Choosing to engage in a variety of quality exercises will keep your interest and best allow you to maintain your goal of burning fat. Instead of doing the same exercises each day—mix it up! Opt to swim laps one day, jog another, and bike the next. Rotating your activities will not only allow you to experience a variety of athletics, it will also allow you to better tone your body.

      9.) Skip Happy Hour

      For those individuals who want to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol. Rich in sugars and carbohydrates, alcohol is a calorie-rich substance. These empty calories can add up quickly and take away from necessary nutrients that should be included in your daily diet. Furthermore, alcohol acts as an inhibitor for burning fat, allowing your body to store it more quickly.

      10.) Try a Low GI Diet

      A low GI diet is an excellent method of burning fat quickly. This diet encourages individuals to consume high amounts of foods with low rankings on the Glycemic Index. These foods are nutritious and will aid your body in burning fats and calories at a quicker pace. This diet includes many of your favorite fruits, vegetable, meats, dairy, and grain products.

    How to flush your liver well?
    I am looking for remedies in flushing my liver and ridding myself from toxins. Drug and alcohol abuse for a while and now I am going sober--does anyone know natural remedies for liver? Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      The liver is constantly removing toxins, and there is no way to speed up the process. A person that has normal liver does not need to flush it even if flushing were actually possible. When toxins are stored in the body, they are deposited almost entirely in fat and not in the liver. The best thing for the liver regardless of past abuse is drinking a little more water than normal and eating a healthy balanced diet.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jessica,

      Have you ever wondered how a celebrity can keep such a nice and tight body? Do you think they are just born that way and they are just a special person to look that good? Part of it is airbrushing in pictures and different camera angles on television, but a lot of it has to do with the way they diet. There is such a thing as the master cleanser diet and it is one of hollywoods secrets. Here is what you can expect from the master cleanser diet.

      1. You will gain more energy than you ever though possible

      You are going to get a huge burst of energy and more daily energy if you do a cleaning diet. This is due to all the toxins you will be flushing out of your body and all the garbage that will no longer be clogging up your colon. When you cleanse your colon you will allow your body to work properly and this will give you more energy because you will be wasting less energy on cleaning the garbage and storing it in your colon.

      2. You will find more time in your days.

      Sure this sounds strange, but when you have more energy you will require less sleep and you will be more productive. This means that things that used to take you an hour might only take you 45 minutes and those 8-10 hour nights of sleep will turn into 5-6 hour nights of sleep. This can greatly benefit anybody that could use an extra hour or two each day.

  31. QUESTION:
    How much weight should I lose and a good diet?
    I'm 5'4 and I weigh 190. I had a baby 8 months ago but I haven't lost the weight. :( I just had a miscarriage and I'm really down about my weight. I have NO way to exercise so I need a good diet to lose weight by at least valentines day. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      I would say you could be healthy around 110-120lbs. So you could aim for 75lbs. Before I give you a diet, there is always a way to exercise, your the only one limiting yourself. Sometimes you have to get up earlier or stay up later, but there is always a way. Here is weight loss information I put together. I always recommend that you educate yourself in addition to this about proper nutrition, after all, eating is something you will do the rest of your life. It is important that you understand how your body works. Each day when you wake up your metabolism rises to its highest level of the day. Metabolism is what you need to be concerned with for weight loss. As the day goes on your metabolism drops at a rate which is specific to every individual, but we can alter this metabolic drop with diet and exercise (a secondary factor). In order to raise your metabolism you need to space your meals apart into 6 rather than 3 meals. The reason being is that when your body is digesting food it raises your metabolism because your body is burning energy. To keep this burning going on, you need to eat more often throughout the day, but have smaller portions and proper foods. The next important factor is what food you are eating, one of the most important factors in weight loss. The main foods to eat are the following; poultry(chicken or turkey), eggs, fish(all types), whey protein shakes, beans, potatoes & yams, brown rice, oatmeal, whole grains (breads, crackers), green vegetables, nuts, fruits (bananas do the most for you) and some dairy (low fat yogurt, low fat cheese). Due to the media, we have been taught to hate all carbs, but the fact is that the media is notorious for leaving out information such as the difference between a good and bad carb. Good carbs are complex carbs (whole grains, oatmeal, beans and brown rice). Bad carbs are simple sugar carbs (candy, soda, table sugar, chips, pizza dough, and the list just goes on). You NEED to eat good carbs to lose weight, they are full of dietary fiber which helps your body flush out waste. If you have trouble losing weight you do not cut out a particular food all together, you just reduce the portion size. As bodybuilders/models prepare for photo shoots they rely on diets very similar to this and just lower their portion sizes as the weeks come closer to the event. This diet is already set low so try this for at least 2 weeks before adjusting it in any way. In order to remain healthy you must get the nutrients from ALL the foods included. Here is a sample meal plan;
      Breakfast- 2-3 Eggs (2 yolks removed) , ½ cup oatmeal, 1 piece of fruit, a low fat yogurt (light and go fit)
      Snack 1- 20-25 gram Whey protein shake, 1 piece of whole grain toast with 1 tbsp peanut butter, ½ piece of fruit
      Lunch- Grilled Chicken over salad with 2 tsp low fat dressing, 1 serving vegetables other than salad
      Snack 2- 20-25 gram Whey protein shake, handful of nuts or trail mix, ½ piece of fruit
      Dinner- Meat of your choice with either a ½ potato or 1/3 cup of brown rice, 2 servings of vegetables
      Snack 3- 20-25 gram Whey protein shake, 6-10 whole grain crackers with peanut butter or thinly sliced cheese.
      It is also very important to drink at minimum 64 ounces of water a day. Water will help flush your digestive track, keep you hydrated, feeling full, and help remove toxins from your body. This is a great meal plan, but what does exercise have to do with weight loss. Well here is a simple reminder to always remember; exercise = muscle toning, nutrition/diet = weight loss/weight gain. Exercise does play a very important role in our lives, but it is not the factor to weight loss. Exercise helps us raise our metabolism, which helps us burn fat at a faster rate. However, you can exercise and not lose a pound due to poor diet. Many people argue that they can jump on a treadmill for an hour and lose 2-3 lbs, but you’re not actually losing fat weight, just water that comes out in the form of sweat; this weight is then replaced when you drink water later on. I also want to debunk one more myth that not eating will lose weight, this could not be more far from the truth. The reason is that when the body is deprived of food it goes into what is known as starvation mode, this is when the body tries to use less energy (fat) and stores it for later on because it is not receiving enough nutrients now(slows metabolism). Not eating anything or enough is just going to cause reverse effects and you may lose weight at a very slow and unhealthy rate. Once that weight does come off you will actually become very ill and likely hospitalized with an IV in your arm or in your stomach feeding you for weeks or months. Do not take this route when weight loss is so easy just by eating the right foods daily. This is a starting point to achieve the weight loss goals you have, make sure you add in some exercise to speed up results.

  32. QUESTION:
    Why is drinking a lot of water usually a part of slimming diets?
    I have been asked to drink 2 litres of water a day while on a diet for slimming. That is difficult. If I reduced the water would it affect the efficacy of the diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Drinking water has several great benefits.
      First off, water is one of the healthiest things we can add to our diet. Water does not provide extra empty calories like soft drinks or juices. Water also can allow you to eat less, and still get the same full filling. A glass or two before meal can help curb appetites that are too large.
      Water is also a natural flushing agent for our body. Many toxins and harmful chemicals in our cells get washed out as our water intake increases.

      There is such a thing as too much water, although two liters a day comes no where close to this mark. Death by over hydration is possible, but this is only with massive quantities of water.

      Personally, I feel much healthier when my water intake goes up. I have more energy, and I just feel better.

      Good Luck

    • ANSWER:
      To lose weight in a month, follow this simple diet routine, proved to be more effective:

      General Motors Weight Loss Diet, a.k.a. The GM Diet* - An e-mail received from Shri M Siddique (who recd from Ravindra Jaju)
      Have you heard of the Physics Diet? As common sense goes, prevention is always better than cure!
      The following diet and health program was apparently developed for the employees and the dependants of General Motors Inc.
      The program was developed in conjunction with the grant from the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. It was first tried at the Johns Hopkins Research Centre and was approved for distribution by the Board of Directors of General Motors Corporation at a general meeting on August 15, 1995 .
      General Motors Corporation wholly endorsed this program and is making it available to all employees and families. This program will be available at all General Motors Food service facilities.
      It is the management’s intention to facilitate a welfare and fitness program for everyone.
      This program is designed for a target weight loss of 5-6 Kgs. per week. It will also improve your attitude and emotions because of its systematic cleansing effects. The effectiveness of this seven day plan is that the foods eaten burn more calories than they give to the body in caloric value. This plan can be used as often as you like to without any fear of complications. It is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. After seven days you will begin to feel lighter by atleast 10 pounds. You will have an abundance of energy and an improved disposition.
      During the first seven days you must drink 10 glasses of water each day.
      DAY ONE
      All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consists of all fruits you want. It is suggested you consume lots of watermelon and cantaloupe.
      DAY TWO
      All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the new and cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the account or type. Avoid oil and coconut while cooking vegetables. Have large boiled potato for breakfast.
      DAY THREE
      Any mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet and no potatoes today.
      DAY FOUR
      Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. You can also have one bowl of vegetables soup.
      DAY FIVE
      Today is a feast day. You will eat 1 (one) cup of rice. You also have to eat 6 (six) whole tomatoes and drink 12 (twelve) glasses of water today to cleanse your system of the excess uric acid you will be producing.
      DAY SIX
      Today is another all vegetables day. You must eat 1 cup of rice today and eat all the vegetables you want cooked and uncooked to your heart's content.
      DAY SEVEN
      Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup rice, fruit juice and all the vegetables you care to consume. Tomorrow morning you will be five to eight kilograms lighter than 1 week ago. If you desire further weight loss, repeat the program again. Repeat the program as often as you like, however, it is suggested that you rest for three days before every repetition.
      You have your system under control now and it will thank you for all the purging and cleansing you just gave it. Even more than a diet program it is good to follow this diet once in a while to clean your digestive system and remove toxic substances that have a accumulated in the system.
      ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
      The most important element of the program is the 10 (ten) tall glasses of water a day. You can also flavour the water will some lemon to make the drink easier. While on the program, take only black coffee and never more than one teaspoon of oil. Preferably do not use oil because the high calorific content. No fruit juices before day seven.
      Here is what happens to you body while you are on this program and how and why it works.
      Day 1: You are preparing your system for the upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh fruits. Fruits are nature's perfect food. They provide everything you can possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.
      Day 2: Starts with a fix complex carbohydrates in the form of a boiled potato. This is taken in the form of a boiled potato and taken in the morning to provide energy and balance. The rest of the day too consists of vegetables which are virtually calories free and provide essential nutrients and fibre.
      Day 3: Eliminates the potato because you get your carbohydrates from fruits. Your system is now prepared to start burning excess pounds. You will have cravings, which should start to diminish by day four.
      Day 4: Bananas and milk. You are in for a surprise. You probably will not be able to eat all the bananas allowed. But they are there for the potassium you have lost and the sodium you may have missed during the last three days. You will notice a definite loss of desire for sweets and you will be surprised at how easy this day will go.
      Day 5: Rice and tomatoes. The rice is for the carbohydrates and the tomatoes are for the digestion and the fibre. Drinking a lot of water purifies your system. You should notice colourless urine today. If you do not feel like having one cup rice, you may eat less. But you may eat six tomatoes.
      Day 6: It is similar to day five. Vitamins and fibre from the vegetables and carbohydrates from the rice. By now your system is in a total weight loss inclination. There should be a noticeable difference in the way you look today compared to day one.
      Day 7: You may celebrate with champagne. You may also have white wine instead of champagne, but in all practical programs, and in all surveys done to measure the success of the program, General Motors employees have always preferred champagne to white wine.
      More than one cup of coffee with milk is especially forbidden. Milk and oil add empty calories to your diet. Avid coffee lovers can console themselves with black coffee. However, after the first week, it will help your digestion and set your stomach. The key thing to remember is that if you are hungry at any time, then you are not following the diet correctly. Almost all people give up the diet when they are hungry because of dieting. The secret of this program is that you should never hungry. If it is a vegetable day, eat so much vegetables that you are never hungry. If it is a fruits day, eat so much fruits that you are never hungry. You may be bored of eating vegetables all day, but you should not be hungry. You can take any amount of General Motors wonder soup on any day.
      GENERAL MOTORS WONDER SOUP
      The following soup is intended as a supplement to your diet. It can be eaten any time of the day in virtually unlimited quantities. You are encouraged to drink large quantities of this soup.
      · 23 oz water
      · 06 large onions
      · 02 green peppers
      · 03 whole tomatoes
      · 1 cabbage
      · 1 bunch celery - add herbs and seasoning as desired.
      This program is highly recommended for women and men above 40 for whom excess weight is especially dangerous. Excess weight for women aggravates arthritis problems and leads to rapid joint decay. Pain and joint deterioration can be lessened by weight loss as weight loss removes the stress on the knee joint. Excess weight is the most critical factor in keeping good health and excess weight is responsible for the most problems including coronary diseases, heart problems, arthritis and cancer among other serious life threatening diseases. Most serious health problems can be avoided by the single function of maintaining an ideal weight. Daily mild exercise of 20 minutes is also essential. Do not tire yourself out, but being regular in your exercise and maintaining an ideal weight goes a long way in ensuring a happy, healthy and long life.

      Wish you the very best in your endeavour!

  35. QUESTION:
    How can I try the Oatmeal Diet?
    I want to go on an oatmeal diet at which you only eat oatmeal and drink water.
    Well it wouldn't really be a diet because I'm anorexic. I want to know how much to eat and how long I should do this until I see results.
    I don't want negative answers about being anorexic I just simply want and answer.

    I am 15 years of age and weigh 100 lbs.
    My height is 5'1"

    So how long should I do this until I see a result and what is the least I can eat until I get too sick to continue? Least amount of calories before I get to sick?

    • ANSWER:
      Fad diets where you eat just one food item will make you sick and of course will make you lose muscle and water weight and perhaps even gain pockets of fat in order to maintain a calorie reserve. That's why anorexic people often claim to have fat pockets. They do.

      If your goal is to have a svelt healthy physique, then here is how you achieve that:

      - Consume a low-calorie diet rich in dark leafy greens, vegetables, brown rice, legumes, fruits, ground flax seed (one tablespoon per day), mushrooms, garlic, and other whole plant based foods. Eat a wide variety of foods avoiding foods high in processed ingredients, refined carbohydrates, refined oils, partially hydrogenated oils, fats, sugars, flavor enhancers, sweeteners, and other food additives.

      - After you have established (for 30 days) a nutrient rich diet that eliminates most addictive foods (including meat, eggs, and dairy), you will want to consume a lot of dark leafy greens. Again, variety of whole plant based foods is essential for health. Watch your B12, D, and Omega-3 levels. Consult with a naturopath about a balanced mostly vegetarian diet (near vegan).

      - Along with your whole plant based diet, start a well-designed resistance training program. You will want to do free weight training no more often than every third day to allow your muscles to rebuild between exercise sessions. Avoid whey protein because the excess protein is merely flushed from your system. Cow milk protein consumption is correlated with breast, prostate, and colon cancers as well as diabetes and vascular diseases.

      This program will allow you to eliminate most fat tissue and allow you to store calories in muscle tissue rather than in fat pockets. You get to choose where you want to put the muscles and muscle tissue stores energy seven times more efficiently that fat tissue on a pound for pound basis.

      The result is a sculpted body. For more details, purchase a good book on free weight training and also read about a "whole plant based diet." There is much propaganda that originates from the powerful fast food, dairy, and meat groups who are often under the awspecies of something as inoxuous as the Price Foundation. These folks have a well-defined agenda. Stick with the science that is supported by researchers such as:

      Dr. Dean Ornish
      Dr. Joel Fuhrman
      Dr. Neal Barnard
      Dr. Caldwell Essselstyn, Jr.
      Professor T. Colin Campbell

      All of the researchers above have excellent web sites and excellent books. Good luck on your search for the best diet. Eating only oatmeal will make you unhealthy, unhappy, and fat in all the wrong places

  36. QUESTION:
    How early before event should I do 7 day full-body cleanse?
    I have a special event coming up in late July that I need to look great for. Should I do a full body cleanse this coming week and workout really hard for a month or should I do it vise versa by working out really hard for a month and then cleansing the week before my event?! Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing is a waste of time and an unhealthy thing to do according the health experts.

      Detox dieting is a myth. 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 be replaced very quickly.

      Check out the following references because you've probably been getting your information from unreliable sources.

      "'Cleansing' diets may be worthless"
      http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/detox-diets-purging-myths

      "A day on a detox diet program probably won't hurt you, but there's little point in following these restrictive diets - and they can do far more harm than good, says Michelle May, MD,"
      http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=64306

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

      "The human body can defend itself very
      well against most environmental insults and the effects of
      occasional indulgence. If you’re generally healthy, stick to
      giving your body what it needs to maintain its own detox
      system— a healthful diet, adequate fluid intake, regular
      exercise, sufficient sleep, and all recommended medical
      check-ups. Don’t waste your money...follow a healthy,
      balanced lifestyle instead."
      Ref: http://www.lee-county.com/gov/dept/HumanResources/Wellness_Newsletters/Aug%2008.pdf

      You can find your own links debunking the detox diets, master cleanses, and other such nonsense by Googling "detox diet myth" or searching USA.gov for your appropriate key words.

      The way to detox is to stop ingesting toxins and let your body cleanse itself naturally. If you have, for example, THC in your blood from smoking pot, there is no food, no flush, no purge, no cleanse that will make it go away. Your body will catabolize or excrete it naturally given sufficient time. 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.

      Good luck and good health!!

  37. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for creatine to leave your body?
    Im playing college tennis next year and im not allowed to use creatine... they give us drug tests. How long does it take to leave my body? i only use jack3d and their is not that much creatine in it but there is a little bit. any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Creatine never "leaves" your body as it's always producing natural creaine phosphate to be used with ATP as an energy source for quick bursts of energy. In your case, every time you serve the ball, the ATP looses a phosphate molecule(then turns into ADP) to produce energy. Creatine phospate then "gives" the ADP a phosphate molecule, so that it turns back into ATP. Thus, creatine is never out of your body.
      I've never heard of being "tested" for creatine use and am not sure how they would do it. Maybe they can test the amount of creatine in your system. If that is the case, you're all set. The body flushes out unused creatine daily, especially from Jack3d, which uses creatine monohydrate, not creatine phosphate.
      Sorry to be so technical, but rest assured, you'll be all set if you stop adding creatine to your diet 2 or 3 days before they test your body for the amount of creatine in your system.

  38. QUESTION:
    What are your tips on flushing your system of traces of marijuana?
    I understand never smoking would be the best, but clearly that is not the case.

    Tips could include things like tons of water drinking, working out to sweat it out, cranberry juice helps flush.
    Things like this, thank you. Its very appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      From my past 15 years of experience in the Force. Marijuana could not be easily "Flush" outta your body because it is a naturally produced plant meaning that it is 100% pure!
      It takes most people 2 weeks to totally "clear" in their system. However traces of any toxin could still be available after months from your strand of hair!
      So... Good Luck Boy if you're going to report for urine soon... Coz they will check on all kinds of cocktails on you rather than just the type you've got in trouble before.
      By the way, plenty of fruits/vegs & drinks do help! However remember to also eat some carbs, proteins & fats in order to support each other so as to make it a well balanced diet.
      Working out to sweat "it" out is another good additional move as well. But please remember that different body react & purge differently & at different rate. So... Never be too confident about it, ok?
      On top of these... You should never never trust the following products (source which I've given to you for some read up) cos it'll never work!

  39. QUESTION:
    How can a teen girl get a beach body, while still being healthy?
    So I am 14 and can't make my own dinner, but you can give me anything to have for breakfast and lunch that will help me lose fat while building muscle, expecially in my thighs and stomach. So do you have any good healthy diet plans, along as some exercises focused on thighs and legs. Thanks! Oh and btw I do not want to starve myself, and don't tell me I'm too young to diet, because that is not the question, and my mind is made already.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey- I'm in your same position! Same age and everything. My advice to you would to just eat more fruits and vegetables, because a lot of them are actually reverse calorie foods (you burn more calories eating/digesting them than they contain themselves) and drinking lots of water. I mean LOTS. You're supposed to get 8 glasses a day, and if you do you'll find yourself losing physical mass pretty quickly. I say physical mass and not weight because drinking all that water will make you weigh more, but that's just water weight. But the human body often mistakes thirst for hunger, so you eat when you aren't actually hungry, you just think you are. But water will help you in tons of ways; your skin will be clearer, you'll be more energetic, and your body will be able to flush things out easier. Not to mention, you'll lose weight faster and easier. As far as eating something that makes you lose fat and gain muscle, you're out of luck. There's no way to get that just by eating something. A great way to get toned thighs is lunges, though. You can do them while watching TV! Or you could ride a bike, if you have one. As for your tummy, try this simple pilates exercise:

      -Lie on your back, on your bed or the floor, wherever.
      -Raise your legs and bend them at the knee, kind of like you're sitting in a chair.
      -Stick your arms out at your sides, and try to keep them as stiff as possible.
      -Start to move your arms up and down the tiniest bit, while keeping them very straight. Do this for 10 counts of 5 seconds.

      I do that every night, and you can really feel it in your arms and in your upper stomach area. It doesn't really seem like it, but that really helps tone your tummy muscles to make you look great in the summer.

      Good luck!

  40. QUESTION:
    What are the most important things to include in a healthy diet?
    Specifically - not just "vegetables." What in particular super food do you include in your diet and for what purpose?

    • ANSWER:
      Broccoli! broccoli has almost every vitamin and mineral you could dream of. no lie. i would eat if everyday if i could. i love it.

      you super food, WATER! drink 8 glasses of water everyday to keep your body healthy. if you aren't drinking enough water you can't flush out your intestines and it makes your body very tired. you can loose weight just by drinking more water and changing nothing else in your diet. honestly. it's great!

      cut out refined sugars and bad fats.
      and crank up your water, fruits and vegetables!
      and you'll be well on your way to a healthier you!!!

  41. QUESTION:
    Does your body burn the normal calorie amount consumed everyday?
    I hear that you have to burn more calories than you consume but I also hear that if you eat 1500 calories a day, everyday, then your body burns 1500 calories a day because thats what it needs to do. Is this correct? Does your body burn the amount of calories that you normally consume? If so, if you eat 1200-1500 calories a day, will it burn those calories naturally? Then any other activity you do to burn more calories will count towards weight loss and not burning the food that you've eaten?

    • ANSWER:
      Your body will only burn the calories if you move your body.

      Here you go: This is from my own experience and what has worked for me. I have laid it all out for you so that others may have the success I have.

      The perfect way to loose weight and monitor your progress is to use a calorie counter on a daily basis while you diet.

      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.

      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.

  45. QUESTION:
    What is the best diet for weight loss and exercise?
    Obviously, I'm trying to lose weight. What should I eat and what should I not eat while trying to reach my goal? What are the best diet methods and such?
    Also, what is the best way for me to work out?

    • ANSWER:
      To lose weight you should avoid processed foods, fried foods, refined carbohydrates (white bread, white rice, etc.) & sugar sweetened beverages. Processed foods are high in sodium and low in nutritional quality. Instead choose a variety of fruits (avoid fruit juice), vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, fish or other seafood and healthy fats like olive and canola oil. Especially focus on the veggies! They are super low in calories and packed with fiber to help keep you full.

      Eat small frequent meals throughout the day and don’t skip meals. Skipping meals can slow down your metabolism and deprive you of needed energy. Eat breakfast in the morning to wake up your metabolism after a long night’s sleep. Also don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Water is necessary to keep your body functioning properly. Staying hydrated helps with digestion, helps control appetite and flushes out toxins.

      You may also want to keep a food journal. This will give you a good idea of how many calories you are taking in and can help you identify areas where you need to make changes. The most successful “diets” fit easily into your lifestyle and teach you ways to eat healthier that you can stick with for good. It’s best to make lifestyle changes that can become part of your normal routine. This way you’ll have the best chance at keeping off the weight in the long run.

      Hope this helps. Good luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    What are some ways I can lower my body fat percentage?
    I am about 72 inches tall and I weigh about 160 pounds, so my BMI is around 22. Does anybody have any tips or advice that can help me get my body fat percentage down to around 10-15% within the next few months?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing weight is a process that can, and should, take an extended period of time. You have the best chance of keeping weight off if you drop those extra pounds gradually. That being said, it is possible, and sometimes necessary, to lose some weight relatively quickly. Here are some tips on how to lose weight in 3 weeks.
      1. Get rid of all the junk food in your house. You need to get rid of any food that is unhealthy, fattening, and full of calories so that you cannot cheat or sneak a snack. Get rid of sodas, sports drinks, alcohol, and other high calorie or high fat beverages. When you need to lose weight in a quick manner, you cannot afford to make any mistakes.
      2. Get up and get moving. This is one of the most important steps if you want to know how to lose weight in 3 weeks. You should consider working out with a cardiovascular program for about one hour each day. This can be one particular activity, or a combination of several activities. You need to get your heart pumping, and build up a sweat. In addition to working out, sit less often. It is a proven fact that the act of standing burns more calories than sitting or lying down. Try standing while watching television, or while talking on the phone. You might just be surprised at the results.
      3. Keep a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables at hand to snack on throughout the day. Fresh produce has a good deal of fiber and water, which fills you up and keeps you feeling full. This assists with preventing cravings, and provides many nutritional benefits. Having water close by to sip on throughout the day also helps to keep your stomach feeling full without adding any extra calories. Water also works to flush out your system, which can further facilitate weight loss.
      4. Eat about six small meals each day. When you eat small, healthy meals, at regular intervals your body is forced to digest food more often, which causes your body to burn more energy. This raises your metabolism and helps get that weight off faster. The main points to remember are that meals need to be small, and they need to be healthy. The issue of “how to lose weight in 3 weeks” can quickly turn into “how I gained weight in 3 weeks” if your food choices and portion sizes are wrong. Make sure these meals are about one third the size of regular meals, and contain lots of veggies, fruit, lean protein, fiber, and low fat dairy.
      My top rated diet is Fat Loss 4 Idiots and they claim they can help you lose 9lbs every 11 days, I don’t know if everyone will be able to achieve that figure, but it is the best way I’ve seen to lose weight fast in a healthy way – check out my Fat Loss 4 Idiots Review to learn more about it.

  47. QUESTION:
    I need to flush my body quickly in a couple days, what extreme home remedy can I do?
    I need to drop a couple pounds, in a few days for a quick out of no where for something important, what home remedies can I do to try an flush me out extremely, an help me loose bloating and some weight in the next couple of days?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all son, losing a lot of weight that quickly is unhealthy.
      I would recommend basic exercise and dieting (eat the actual portion sizes) as well as drinking lots of water. You can loose a good amount without damaging your body.

      BUT IF TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE then I would recommend one simple thing.
      Fiber. And lot's of it.

  48. QUESTION:
    How to raise my blood pressure but with out adding alot of salt to my diet?
    Okay I have lost an amount of weight but I've noticed that my blood pressure got pretty low and i sometimes get tired and exhausted,I say that it got lower because i tried to omit salt as much as I can in my diet and I don't want to eat all these salty foods to raise my blood pressure afraid I'll gain weight again? Any help?? Thank you (:

    • ANSWER:
      Don't stay away from salt. Salt is the second most important nutrient your body needs to live, and you must have lots of it every day.

      Salt doesn't cause weight gain - not in the sense that you're afraid of. The water and salt combination in the body has to stay at a critical balance or else health problems will result. You didn't mention why you lost the weight - whether it was from obesity or you're becoming anorexic (I truly hope this isn't the case).

      Obesity is caused by dehydration. Many people confuse their sense of thirst with their sense of hunger - they tend to eat when they're thirsty instead of when they're thirsty. This obviously causes weight gain.

      Drinking water before eating will give you a more "full" feeling which will satisfy your hunger sooner, so you won't eat so much. But it isn't just about the water. Salt is important to retain water in the body. If you don't eat adequate salt, you have nothing to hold the water in. Thus, you lose the water, and as you do, it flushes out salt and other vitamins and minerals that were already in the body.

      This makes a bad situation worse. Now you don't even have all of the nutrients you had before you drank the water. The only thing this road will lead you to is health problems.

      This is why it's critical to maintain the proper water / salt balance.

  49. QUESTION:
    What do you think is a good diet for building more gains?
    Yeah I already eat normal, but I usually tend to burn it off. I tend to eat foods with vitamins such as B12, A, C etc and foods with lots of protien. Which foods do you recommended/ what do you think is a good diet. I eat 5/6 times a day.

    • ANSWER:
      By "building more gains," I assume you mean that you want to build lean muscle mass, or perhaps bulky muscles. The key is a well-designed resistance training program. I recommend free weights because this approach assures that you exercise the smaller muscles along with the big muscles to make sure that everything is kept in balance. Machines are efficient, but they often cause injury if the smaller muscles are neglected. Make sure to have a couple rest days between sessions because that's when the muscles are built.

      In terms of diet, heavy protein is often over-sold. When you consume too much protein, it is merely flushed from your system at great cost to your kidneys and liver. The very top marathoners thrive on a near vegan diet. They all avoid excess meat, eggs, and dairy. Their protein is derived from grains, legumes, and vegetables. Dark leafy greens are extremely rich in calcium, iron, and protein. They are a better source of these nutrients at a lower caloric load.The great apes are extremely muscular and share 94% of our genetic code. Their protein is derived from leafy greens. For more information about "vegan body builders," find articles and books written by Rip Esselstyn.

      Unfortunately, most body building books and most experts in gyms have bought into myths created by profit seeking entities. Check the following sources for more accurate information:

      Dr. Neal Barnard
      Dr. Caldwell Esslestyn, Jr.
      Professor T. Colin Campbell

      Body building is best done on a whole plant based diet.

  50. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a forsure weight loss diet or exercises?
    I had a baby about 6 months ago, and I can finally diet and exercise. I have about 15 extra pounds of nasty fatness sitting on my stomach and thighs right now and want to lose at least 5 of it by the 26th of this month. So if anyone knows of any diet or certain exercises that will work quickly, it'd be a HUGE help. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      This works like a charm! I lost 10 pounds in 3 days. I know you probably won't think its true, but its actually a quite healthy diet! Your not straving yourself, and you eat pleanty of good veggies! Here it is :D!

      1st Day:

      BREAKFAST:
      Black Coffee or Tea
      ½ Grapefruit
      1 slice of toast
      2 tablespoons of peanut butter

      LUNCH:
      ½ cup of Tuna
      1 slice of toast

      DINNER:
      2 slices of any mean (about 3 oz.) - I ate two hot dogs.
      1 Cup of String Beans
      1 Cup of Beets
      1 Small Apple
      1 Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream

      2nd Day:

      BREAKFAST:
      1 Egg
      ½ of a Banana
      1 Slice of Toast
      Black Coffee or Tea

      LUNCH:
      1 Cup of Tuna or Cottage Cheese
      5 Saltine Crackers

      DINNER:
      2 slices of meat
      2 Cups of Broccoli
      ½ Cup of Carrots
      ½ of a Banana
      ½ Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream

      3rd Day:

      BREAKFAST:
      3 Saltine Crackers
      1 Slice of Cheddar Cheese
      1 Small Apple
      Black Coffee or Tea

      LUNCH:
      1 Hard-Boiled Egg
      1 Slice of Toast

      DINNER:
      1 Cup of Tuna or Cottage Cheese
      1 Cup of Beets
      1 Cup of Cauliflower
      ½ Cup of Cantaloupe
      ½ Cup of Vanilla Ice Cream

      DIRECTIONS:

      When you are on this diet, you may not use any other seasonings EXCEPT for Salt and Pepper. Also, you may drink either Water or Diet Soda or Tea with artificial sweetener. However, make sure that you drink at least 9 glasses of water per day in order to aid the flushing process that your body will be going through. Also, DO NOT SNACK throughout the day. Also, you may substitute Tune for Cottage Cheese or vice versa.

      When you do this diet, you will be "on-diet" for the three days, and then you will take three days off, and then repeat the process until all your excess body fat has disappeared. MAKE SURE you take those three days off! When you are off of the diet, than you are able to eat anything that you want, however, eat moderately. Also, when you are dieting for the three days, keep your exercise routine to a minimum, due to the fact that your energy level will be lower than normal for the first two days.

      As with all diets and weight loss routines, you are going to need to listen to your body. If you are feeling overly weak, or lightheaded, eat something. Everybody is different, so please, be careful with yourself. Below is a grocery list for you to print off:

      GROCERY LIST:

      Coffee
      Tea - cold or hot
      Artificial Sweetener - HIGHLY recommend All Natural Splenda.
      Grapefruit
      Bread - Whole Wheat

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best colon cleanse supplement for weight loss?
    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:
      Hi Megan,

      Personally, I've had a lot of success with the product Colon Clean (you can get more details on my website if you like - they do offer a good free trial).

      Colon cleanse products are designed to help clear out the gunk that accumulates in the intestines over years of eating meat and junk food. Think about it - the human body isn't designed to process all the artificial chemicals we add to food, so it's natural for some bits and pieces to get trapped in the colon. These left over bits can lead to some serious health consequences over time if they aren't addressed.

      Using a colon cleanse product removes the left over gunk, so users do see some initial weight loss as the colon is cleaned out. In addition, cleaning the colon enables it to digest foods better, so you won't have as much buildup in the future. People who use colon cleanse products often report having higher energy levels and feeling healthier overall than ever before - both of which can make it easier to stick with a healthy diet and exercise plan.

      The most important thing to remember is to look for a colon cleanse product that's gentle and includes a pro-biotic supplement. While you're cleaning the intestine, you'll be wiping out some of the beneficial bacteria that live there. It's important to choose a product that replaces them, since low bacteria levels can give you lots of trouble digesting foods in the future.

      Anyways, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me - I'd be happy to discuss the program I used with you!

  6. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried this Acai Berry/ Colon Cleansing diet that I keep hearing about?
    It seems too good to be true and even though there are offers of free trials, they aren't free if you don't return the product within two weeks.

  7. QUESTION:
    How do I cleanse my colon?
    I really need a colon cleansing. I can tell because I get sick frequently (first i get mild cramping, then diarreah and then vomiting). What are some natural home remedies that I could use? (note im 10)

    • ANSWER:
      You may have a nervous disorder, common to teenagers. Before you do anything, talk to your doctor.

      There are several ways to cleanse your colon.

      There are mechanical methods, such as enemas, and colonics. Enemas can be performed at home in your tub. Colonics need to be performed by licensed professionals. Basically, they fill your colon with warm water, have you hold it a while, and then the open the valve and drain the system. Colonics are more thorough, and cost about 0 each treatment. That’s the hard way, and may still not solve the problem.

      If your colon is not working properly, chances are toxins have built up in the organs that provide support for the intestines and colon. If the problem is to be over come, those toxins must be removed from your organs.

      There are two other routes to take. The medical remedy, using drugs and other medicines, and herbal, natural remedies.

      The medical route will have side effects, and may cause other problems.

      Natural remedies use the same foods we normally eat. There are no side effects. The downside is they take a while to detoxify the organ, regrow new healthy tissue, and train it to function properly.

      The best product on the market is Boweltrol which both cleanses and regulates your bowels.
      The makers of Boweltrol are so sure you’ll love their product that they are offering a Risk Free Trial Offer, and further a Money Back Guarantee.

      You can find it on this website:

  8. QUESTION:
    has anyone had success with the Power Flush 500 or Acai berry weight loss remedies?
    These diet colon cleansing remedies have been touted online but I want to know if anyone has actually used these successfully (your own experience) or not. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I have a weight loss idea for you that helped me lose about 20 pounds in 3 months. However, first I want to warn you that the internet is filled with acai berry SCAMS.

      This is based on my own personal experience. One online scam is Acai Berry Supreme. They promised a free bottle and I would only have to pay shipping. I noticed an additional .95 added to my credit card from that company and had to complain to the company to get a refund.

      Another scam is Acai Berry Power 500, which also offered a free trial bottle. They then started mailing me additional bottles of acai without my permission. Again, I had to complain to the company to get credit card charges removed.

      Your best bet is to go to a health food or vitamin store and buy acai directly. Sambazon is probably the best company to buy from. If you can’t get acai directly, you should be safe to buy it from sambazon.com.

      What did help me lose 20 pounds in 3 months is an old home remedy that might sound strange to you. Put 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV) and 1 tablespoon of honey in 8 ounces of warm water and drink this mixture. Do this twice a day. Use Bragg's ACV or other brands from a health food store, not stuff you buy in a regular grocery store. I can't offer you any guarantee, but ACV did work for me.

    • ANSWER:
      Did you know that surplus weight is not always thanks to surplus body fat? There can be a lot of additional weight basically lying around in the colon. The newest diet supplement can cleanse the colon and help you to reduce up to twenty pounds, regularly from the tummy (show me an individual who doesn't want to reduce some pounds from their tummy LOL!!).

  12. QUESTION:
    if I take the acai berry supplements and do the colon cleanse, will that shorten my lifespan?
    I thought I had found the help I need to lose 22 pounds finally when I read about this plan. But then someone said that this will shorten my lifespan and I don't want to do that!!! help!

    • ANSWER:
      Ha, nope - this is totally a myth. Think about it - how could doing something healthy for your body, like losing weight, eating fruit and restorning natural balance to your digestive system actually hurt you? It's more likely that carrying extra weight will shorten your lifespan!

      Personally, I've had great results with Acai Berry Ultimate and the Colon Clean system - so far, I've lost about 43 pounds in the last 3 months. When I started, both companies were offering free trials to their products and I think they still are. There's a link on my website where you can go to try the products out for free, no risk.

      Good luck with your weight loss goals!

  13. QUESTION:

      Eat many small meals rather than 2 or 3 big meals. Because if u do so you will get your body to work all the time to digest the food and it will keep your body digestion up => burn more calories.

    how long does acai berry capsules take to make you lose weight?
    and how much weight can they make you lose in like a month...also do they help marks and scars on your skin?

    • ANSWER:
      I am afraid they do not help anyone lose weight. Nor will they do anything more than locally bought fresh berries will do.
      The berry has a short shelf life so unscrupulous people have turned it into an industry based on lies, fictional testimonials and fake photographs.

      "The Center for Science in the Public Interest said companies offering free trials of diet pills made with the acai berries have bilked thousands of consumers using fake celebrity endorsements and blogs to lure customers.
      Claims of weight loss are unfounded, said the CSPI.
      'There's no evidence whatsoever to suggest that acai pills will help shed pounds, flatten tummies, cleanse colon, enhance sexual desire, or perform any of the other commonly advertised functions,' according to the organization's press release. "

  23. QUESTION:
    Do bromlie capsules really work for weight loss?
    I saw the add in a leading international magazine about bromline tablets and their effectiveness on weight loss by removing fat from body. They also assure that there are no side-effects of the tablets. I have also read some reviews on the internet bt some are positive reviews and some are negative. Can some one please advice me wether I should take them or not.... regards

    • ANSWER:
      No.
      "The Bromalite product claims to be many things – a colon cleanser, weight loss tool and fat burner. The website for this brand is a basic one-page informational sheet with most of the space devoted to information on ordering the free trial (including a 5 minute countdown to when the offer supposedly runs out).

      Like many other questionable products Bromalite prominently features well-known logos such as Fox News, AOL Health and CNN for no apparent reason, and also shows a quote from ‘National Geographic’ magazine that talks of the widespread dangers of internal parasites. There is some similarly ‘scary’ information further on in the site which claims that ‘death begins in the colon’. It is true that colon disease is on the rise in North America, but the website leaves the impression that it is essential to get a colon cleansing as a way to prevent this problem.

      Unfortunately, Bromalite doesn’t provide much proof that their product is successful in either ridding the body of these deadly parasites and toxins or able to cause significant weight loss. They provide two customer testimonials (one in which the customer claims that Bromalite was the ‘single most dramatic event in life’), no FAQ section and no clinical trials to back up their claims, despite stating that the results and ingredients are ‘proven’."

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Hey

      I'm using the Bowtrol Colon Cleanse for a few months and until now I'm very satisfied.
      The Bowtrol Colon Cleanse is a completely herbal and all-natural colon cleansing solution that was designed to help lose weight, improve digestive system, eliminate intestinal parasites and promote overall health.

      I really liked that Bowtrol is made up of ingredients that are all natural herbs. It contains flax seeds that are known to promote good health and also Peppermint oil that is highly efficient in treating irritable bowel syndrome.

      A quality colon cleanser should not only make you feel better on the inside, but also make you look better on the outside - and that's exactly what Bowtrol does.

      I don't know if the Bowtrol Colon Cleanse will work for you the same as it works for me, however with the 90 days money back guarantee I believe that it can be a good idea to try the Bowtrol Colon Cleanse product before wasting a lot of money on other expensive Colon Cleanse products.

  26. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Dual Action Colon Cleanse advertised on TV?
    I wanted some input before I decided to purchase it. Any details would be very helpful.

    Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      Any colon cleanser will make you feel discomfort, but that just lets you know it's working to dislodge the waste and buildup.

      And you have to be careful, because they can be unhealthy IF you get a colon cleanser that doesn't come with a probiotics/replenishing formula. Along with the waste that the cleansers get rid of, they get rid of some of the good bacteria too. You need to get one with a replenishing formula to help rebuild those healthy bacteria quickly.

      I've been using Evercleanse and it has been working great. I read a few reviews over at http://www.bestcoloncleanse.us and went with it.

      Note: Be careful about any cleanser offering a "free" trial. If you read the fine print, you'll see that they make you sign up for an automatic monthly rebill for + to get the free trial and they make it hard to cancel.

  27. QUESTION:
    where can i get a free trial for colon clens?
    and does it work?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a number of scammers out there that will offer a sample.

      A "cleanse" does nothing. There is no excess weight "hidden" in the colon. Trust me. I've seen the inside of a colon!

  28. QUESTION:
    Any feedback for Colon Cleanse or Aacai Berry?
    Does any of these products work for making you feel better and losing weight. Any one who has tried both of these products, which one works better and do they really help you blose weight?

    • ANSWER:
      Colon cleansing (colon therapy) encompasses a number of alternative medical therapies intended to remove fecal waste and unidentified toxins from the colon and intestinal tract. Colon cleansing may take the form of colon hydrotherapy (also called colonics or colonic irrigation) or oral cleansing regimens.

      As far as the products Colon Cleanse and Acai Berry go, they are renowned for working and working relatively well. It is important to realize that they are not magic supplements though. They will do all the dirty work for you but you must compliment it with a bit if exercise and healthy eating.

      According to the National Food and Drug Administration, the following products were highly recommended. The company is offering a free trial for these products. The links are below, good luck!

  33. QUESTION:
    Have you used the Acai and Colon Cleansing tablets?
    I was on a weight loss website and lots of the ladies were raving on about this awesome weight loss programme where you combine the two tablets. You can get free trials of both but i didnt want to do if its not worth it. I want genuine opinions no rude answers please. I also go to the gym a few times a week but i cant go everyday because I have a baby. Thanks everyone :)

    • ANSWER:
      No, the ladies on the website, the bloggers are pure fiction.
      The free trial is not free, Google acai and scam.

      Acai is a berry with a short shelf life so unscrupulous people have turned it int an industry based on fake testimonials, false claims and digitally enhanced photographs,
      "The Center for Science in the Public Interest said companies offering free trials of diet pills made with the acai berries have bilked thousands of consumers using fake celebrity endorsements and blogs to lure customers.
      Claims of weight loss are unfounded, said the CSPI.
      There's no evidence whatsoever to suggest that acai pills will help shed pounds, flatten tummies, cleanse colon, enhance sexual desire, or perform any of the other commonly advertised functions, according to the organization's press release."

      If you must try them look in health food stores or pharmacies.

  37. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the acai berry weight loss product?
    Does it really work or is it a scam?

    • ANSWER:
      It is a scam. It doesn't work. The berry has a short shelf life so some unscrupulous people have turned it into an industry based on lies. Fake testimonials and fake, digitally enhanced photographs.

      Consumers should be skeptical of health and weight-loss claims of the increasingly popular Brazilian fruit, acai, and the free trial offers that ask for their credit card information, a nonprofit health group said Monday.
      The berry has been touted as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and an antibacterial. The fruit is said to contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential to human health.

      Claims of weight loss are unfounded, said the CSPI.
      "There's no evidence whatsoever to suggest that acai pills will help shed pounds, flatten tummies, cleanse colon, enhance sexual desire, or perform any of the other commonly advertised functions," according to the organization's press release.
      Keri Gans, dietitian and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, recommends that customers turn to fruits and vegetables at their local produce markets.

  40. QUESTION:
    Need advise on an effective colon cleanse thats safe and cheap ,Any sugguestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Top 5 Options for Colon Cleansing Treatments

      The colon is a very important part of the body in that it is in part, responsible for the elimination of waste in the form of feces. It functions in the capacity of reabsorption of food nutrients and water. However, it is possible for the colon to be unable to carry out its job effectively. When this happens the colon develops what is called an impaction. This is a situation where all or part of the feces that is supposed to be passed out remains in the colon causing constipation and inhibiting normal bowel movements, not to mention other symptoms like bad breath, bloating, abdominal cramps et.c.This waste material that is residual in the colon can result in the toxic poisoning of the system as a result of the reabsorption of the waste materials. When this occurs there is a need for colon cleansing which simply is the cleaning of the large and small intestine of any waste materials that has been lodged there as a result of the bowel’s inability to expel it. Colon cleansing should be regular event in any one’s life given the fact that we all pas feces which can have remnants lodged in our bodies. This is important because it has been shown that the average adult has between five and forty pounds of waste materials deposited in the bowel. Therefore, you see the need for a regular colon cleansing exercise. However, colon cleansing comes in various methods:
      1.The use of Enemas
      2.The use of Laxatives
      3.Using oxygen-based cleansers
      4.Colon hydrotherapy
      5.Herbal supplements
      As with everything in life, these techniques have both got their pluses and minuses. So, we’ll take a brief look at each of the methods and see how much benefit they each give.1. EnemasEnemas have been known to have been in existence for thousands if years. History has shown it was used in Egypt as a form of treatment for digestive maladies and disorders. Enemas vary –water, clay, and coffee-and so do the results stemming from its use. Most times, enemas just get rid of waste that is deposited and impacting the lower colon. However, enemas cannot function as a melting agent that will melt away all the waste materials. So its use is in a away limited. It is very effective in rectum emptying. The reason some people do not also like using enemas is because they do not like the idea of inserting any form of enema in the rectum.

    The one rule to a flat stomach is all over the web. Has anyone tried it for real and does it really work. I am a nursing mother is it safe for me too? Would like to hear results from actual users

  42. QUESTION:
    Where can I buy colon cleanse?
    this product has great reviews, but I can't find anywhere to buy it I can only find a free trail offer.

    • ANSWER:
      See the Terms and Conditions at the web site you are looking at.
      You will see your free trial could cost you hundreds with the auto-ship program you will likely be signing up for.
      Why do they do that if the product does what they claim?
      Colon cleansing or cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive system. Old science from the late 1800's when meat was the main food and people were constipated all the time. Not enough fruit and vegetables.
      There is no build up of bad plaque 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 bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
      Since 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 sloshing 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.
      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.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      And if you do one of these cleanses, they never mention the gas and bloating as your body rebuilds the healthy bacteria population. Search "gut flora".
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.
      Good luck.

  43. QUESTION:
    Does the Acai Berry Cleanse/ Colon Cleanse actually work?
    Ok, so ive seen like tons of ads everywhere about the Acai Berry Cleanse Diet plan and i wanted to know if its actually legit and if it really works. You never know since its the internet and everything but it looks very promising! If you've tried this plan id love to hear your experience with it! thanks in advance:]

    • ANSWER:
      No, it oes not work.
      If you were looking at the free sample offer, just Google acai and scam and think again.
      The Center for Science in the Public Interest said companies offering free trials of diet pills made with the acai berries have bilked thousands of consumers using fake celebrity endorsements and blogs to lure customers.

      Claims of weight loss are unfounded, said the CSPI.
      "There's no evidence whatsoever to suggest that acai pills will help shed pounds, flatten tummies, cleanse colon, enhance sexual desire, or perform any of the other commonly advertised functions," according to the organization's press release.

      Acai's popularity has surged on bogus marketing claims, said Jonny Bowden, a certified nutrition specialist and author of several health books

      "Virtually every berry -- blueberry, strawberry, goji, acai -- are anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants," Bowden said. "This particular one is exotic. It's found in Brazil. It's been marketed to have more of a magic ingredient. It's been over-hyped and marketed to death. There are claims to curing cancer, curing baldness that is all over the place."

      Like most berries, acai has good nutritional qualities, but "there is not a drop of research" that supports marketing claims that it prevents weight gain and facial wrinkles, Bowden said.

The only way to loose weight fast is to raise your metabolism, to burn more fat. not to starve yourself because your body is very intellident, it can detect when you are lack of calories from food and makes u feel sleepy to restore calories for the body.
      Eat negative calories or high fiber food: Asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, lettuce & zucchini. Because these food require a lot of calories to digest so in return the more you eat the more calories you can burn without doing anything.
      Fruits that are good for you are apple, grapefruit ( as much as possible , no harm ) or any other type of citrus like pomelo or orange.
      Eat many small meals rather than 2 or 3 big meals. Because if u do so you will get your body to work all the time to digest the food and it will keep your body digestion up => burn more calories.

    Anyone who has lost 50 pounds or more, please let me know how you did it?
    I have had 2 babies in 2 years and lets just say. I need to hit the gym. Any tips? Diet, exercise etc.....

    • ANSWER:
      If you are still breastfeeding the babies then I think the best thing for you now is to eat a lot of nutrious food and fruit juice , also take Omega 3 fish oil. Until you stop breastfeeding the babies then u can do as I suggest below, these are all the things I've tried for 1 year and I lost 38 lbs. Lol cant lose 50 lbs, too much for me.
      The only simple way to loose weight fast is to raise your metabolism, to burn more fat. not to starve yourself because your body is very intellident, it can detect when you are lack of calories from food and makes u feel sleepy to restore calories for the body.
      Counting calories is a good thing to do but in the long term it doesnt work anymore with the same reason is that the body can detect that. The reason that you gain weight is not because of the food, it is because u dont know what type of food u should eat.
      Eat negative calories or high fiber food: Asparagus, broccoli ( highly recommend ) , cauliflower, celery, lettuce & zucchini. Because these food require a lot of calories to digest so in return the more you eat the more calories you can burn without doing anything.
      Fruits that are good for you are apple, grapefruit ( as much as possible , no harm ) or any other type of citrus like pomelo or orange.
      Eat many small meals rather than 2 or 3 big meals. Because if u do so you will get your body to work all the time to digest the food and it will keep your body digestion up => burn more calories.
      Drink a lot of green tea. Good for your health, delicious and high antioxident. Not only for weight loss but also for better looking skin.
      Go to sauna or swimming, dogwalking if ur lazy. Keep yourself active even when ur lazy :-D .
      Spicy food help boost metabolism.
      Eat more fish and beef, mincemeat . if you eat chicken dont eat the skin.
      And again drink omega 3 fish oil supplement to have better concentration and memory, and omega 3 fish oil helps the body to prevent restore fat. When your children are about 2 years old and they can drink omega 3 fish oil, you should let them drink everyday. They will be VERY SMART , omega 3 is the best food for the brain and your children will learn how to talk and walk at least twice as much as the other children who dont take it.

    • ANSWER:
      When I was interested in this, I read the reviews on Amazon.com (that's where I was buying it from since I didn't want to give my debit information to some site I didn't trust).

      Basically, what I got from that was that the acai berry supplement energizes *some* people, but doesn't really contribute to weight loss at all.

      The people who were pleased with the Colon Cleanse were using it to become regular and not to lose weight. Some people said that they had lost a few pounds from removing all the waste that had built up in their intestines. Generally, the people who were trying the acai/colon cleanse combination did not lose weight, or did not lose enough weight to be satisfied.

      If you read the directions, you have to adjust the number of pills you take so that you are having 2-3 bowel movements per day.

      Side effects include cramping, bloating, and diarrhea.

  3. 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.

  4. QUESTION:
    Do you really need to use a laxative or sea salt when doing the master cleanse diet?
    I am about to try the master cleanse diet but I am not looking forward to the laxative, herbal tea or sea salt drink at night. Is it absolutely necessary?
    If so what what brand of tea did you use?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it is necessary, it's either that or an enema.

      For teas, Super Dieter's Tea or Smooth Move Tea by Traditional are the most common and easiest to find. But any senna based tea will do. I do not find it necessary to do both the sea salt drink and the laxative tea, one or the other is fine. And you probably won't have to use it every day, by day 3 or 4, you really should have flushed everything out of you colon. This is gross, but when only liquid is coming out, you can ditch the laxative.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best weight loss supplement for someone who has trouble losing weight?
    I have tried acai berry and colon cleanse combination, hydroxycut, lipozene, metabolife. And while i was on these i either did a 1000 calorie a day diet or weight watchers. I want a fat burner that actually stays true to the title as a fat burner. Im the biggest i have ever been and i need extreme work done

    • ANSWER:
      You have tried every unapproved diet pill available at the grocery. Weight loss supplements are called "supplements" because they are not proven drugs. Under a bad law passed in 1994 diet pills, protein powders, oils, even soaps can claim they cause weight loss as long as people don't report injury or harm. So we don't find out until injury has occurred before we know if they are safe or not. Quite a big difference from an approved drug that is extensively tested.
      80% of weight loss is diet.
      You can eat a healthy diet and lose weight.
      You can eat a healthy diet and exercise and lose more weight.
      You can exercise and eat a poor diet and not lose and even gain weight.
      A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
      You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
      Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
      First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
      Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
      Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them. A high fiber diet increases the metabolism.
      Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
      Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
      Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
      This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
      I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
      Next, take an age appropriate basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients.
      You have to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the natural toxins.
      Last, you need to get 7-10 hours of quality sleep depending on your age. All recent sleep studies report a connection between poor sleep and weight gain.
      You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.

      I lost 30 pounds in 5 months by spending my money at the grocery and gym and have kept it off for two years now. 3% of people that attempt weight loss lose it and keep it off for two years. It is not easy. It is a lifestyle change.
      Good luck and good health.

  6. QUESTION:
    When did you start noticing results with the 14 day acai berry fat burn cleanse and colon cleanse duo?
    I have been taking it for about 3 days, and barely noticed anything

    • ANSWER:
      I have been reading up on the acai berry myself. The acai berry's natural combination of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, and amino acids work together to assit your body and make it function better. Your body will process food more easily and burn fat more efficiently.
      The acai berry has around twenty times the antioxidants of red grapes. It is a wonderful protein, and has a large amount of dietary fiber. The fats contained in the acai berry are healthy omega fats.
      The acai berry is loaded with amino acids, which muscles need to function properly and benefit from exercise. These amino acids combined with fatty acids allow the body to burn fat more effectively and help tone your muscles.

      I have found the following informational site very informative - http://www.acai-health-diet.com.

  7. QUESTION:
    Dieting: How much does it cost to get colon cleaned?
    I'm dieting & exercising. I've read that detoxing or even getting your colon cleaned can help you lose 8+ pounds. How expensive is this? Which would you recommend a supplement or the colon cleanse procedure?

    • ANSWER:
      The amount of weight you can lose with a colon cleanse depends on how much matter is left in your intestines. The average person has 5-20 pounds of matter, so you can lose a decent amount.

      For colon cleansing home remedies, the best thing would be going for juice fasting for 3- 5 days or eat a diet high in fiber and drink your recommended amount of water.

      For colon cleansing products, Cellular Research, Dr. Natura, Dr. Schulze, Enuvia, Health Plus, Nature's Secret and Oxy-Powder are quite among popular among the industry.

  8. QUESTION:
    has anyone had success with the Power Flush 500 or Acai berry weight loss remedies?
    These diet colon cleansing remedies have been touted online but I want to know if anyone has actually used these successfully (your own experience) or not. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I have a weight loss idea for you that helped me lose about 20 pounds in 3 months. However, first I want to warn you that the internet is filled with acai berry SCAMS.

      This is based on my own personal experience. One online scam is Acai Berry Supreme. They promised a free bottle and I would only have to pay shipping. I noticed an additional .95 added to my credit card from that company and had to complain to the company to get a refund.

      Another scam is Acai Berry Power 500, which also offered a free trial bottle. They then started mailing me additional bottles of acai without my permission. Again, I had to complain to the company to get credit card charges removed.

      Your best bet is to go to a health food or vitamin store and buy acai directly. Sambazon is probably the best company to buy from. If you can’t get acai directly, you should be safe to buy it from sambazon.com.

      What did help me lose 20 pounds in 3 months is an old home remedy that might sound strange to you. Put 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV) and 1 tablespoon of honey in 8 ounces of warm water and drink this mixture. Do this twice a day. Use Bragg's ACV or other brands from a health food store, not stuff you buy in a regular grocery store. I can't offer you any guarantee, but ACV did work for me.

  9. QUESTION:
    Mixing the Master Cleanse with regular food to stretch the time from ten days to longer, would this work?
    I want to try the Master Cleanse diet.
    But I don't want to risk gaining all the weight after ten days if I go straight to regular/solid foods again.
    If I mix the two, lemonade and solid food, between the days, would I still get results?
    Like... instead of six to seven glasses a day, I drink 3. And small meals every now and then?
    Would this work out?
    I'll still do cardio everyday.

    • ANSWER:
      Firstly forget Stanley B.
      "Like modern-day diet scammer Kevin Trudeau, creator of the Master Cleanse Stanley Burroughs was plagued by accusations and lawsuits for his entire career. One patient, whom he convinced to ignore his doctor's advice for 30 days, actually died under his care. Burroughs was convicted of second-degree felony murder and felony practicing medicine without a license."

      You would do better to eat sensibly and exercise. The Master Cleanse is totally unhealthy.

      "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. By engaging in this practice for an extended period of time, you are effectively wiping out one of your first lines of defense against infection and sickness."

  10. QUESTION:
    What do you think of going on a liquid diet?
    What would happen if I went on a liquid diet and used Colon Total Cleanse? Would that do anything drastic? Or would it help me lose weight? I'm exercising about 3 days a week, and I'd really like to lose 14-19 pounds. ???

  11. QUESTION:
    What are good 3-day cleanses that won't leave me feeling like a zombie?
    Lately, I haven't been feeling entirely up to par and I want to do a three day cleanse to flush my body. I am a student, so it is of paramount importance that the cleanse doesn't leave me extremely tired. I was thinking of the lemon water cleanse, but I think that would be dangerous to do for three days. What are some other cleanses that I can do for three days that won't leave be de-energized?

    • ANSWER:
      You’re having a Freudian moment.
      You want to “flush” your body...like “down the toilet” (that is where I would flush things).

      You’re a student, and in some countries (like the US), if you’re a student, you eat crappy school or university food with some junk fast food for good measure.
      You’ll never be up to par with a bad diet if you do not eat home cooked healthy meals.

      If you have a bad diet, you have no energy. If you have no energy, you’re not very active. If you’re not very active, you lack muscle mass. If you lack muscle mass, you feel weak...no amount of lemons will fix that problem.

      Also “cleanse” ≠ clean. Cleansing = messing up the natural balance of your digestive system. Your body is cleaning itself. Do not mess up with the natural flora of your digestive system, your colon or your vagina.

      If you want energy then eat a lot, eat healthy food, be very active and the more muscle mass you’ll get, the stronger you’ll feel.
      Just watch out about not developing an exercise addiction.
      After about 30 minutes in your THR zone, the body starts releasing chemicals to prevent pain so you can keep going. Those natural chemicals (endorphins, epinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, among others) make you feel so good…happy, energetic...

      If you cannot wait to exercise and hurt if you don’t, take a 3 weeks break.

  12. QUESTION:
    What foods are conducive to proper regularity? What foods should be avoided?
    Also, I heard somewhere that there's this colon cleansing tea you can drink to expel built up waste and toxins in your body. Does anyone have more info on that?

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing products are nothing but laxatives. Nothing will clean your system except for a healthy diet. It implies to decrease animal protein and fat, eat more organics, more fruit, vegetables, nuts, decrease sugar intake, sodas, quit cigarette smoking, exercise at least 2-3 times per week. Also to have fiber supplementation every day. You can be regular just by adding 1 scoop of soluble fiber to water or orange juice, 1 glass every morning. If you eat 3 portions of vegetables and fruit per day you will not need any cleansing teas. The built up they talk on TV is a hook to sell nothing more than a laxative.

  13. QUESTION:
    What are the normal side effects on a bowel cleanse diet/powder?
    I'm taking a bowel cleanse powder mixed with juice + a diet of fruit, veg, whole grains, nuts and legumes. The powder contains flax seed, apple pectin, bentonite clay, psyllium husk and seed, slippery elm, marshmallow root, fennel seed and activated willow charcoal. I feel mildly nauseous on and off through out the day usually about one hour after taking the powder and in the morning. My appetite has been abnormally poor since starting the diet. I'm on day 4 now, but I had this problem from day one.

    • ANSWER:
      Very often when people "detox" through a program like this bacteria and toxins are released from where they've been stored in the body and start to circulate. This is what is making you feel nauseous.
      Your body, as a self-preserving defense mechanism, shunts bacteria and toxins into fatty tissues to protect your major organs. Your detox program is working against the wisdom of your body and can be quite harmful to your well-being.
      If you eat a well-balanced diet, fresh meats, fruits and vegetables (stay away from bread, pasta, anything with sugar in it, esp. soft drinks, avoid fast, frozen, processed food) you will not only lose weight, but you'll also detox naturally without any special products or programs and save money at the same time.
      Bowel cleanses, colon cleanses, etc. are not necessary.
      Get some vitamin D3 and take 2,000 iu a day, and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) 1000 mg/3 times/day to boost your immune system.

  14. QUESTION:
    Has anyone heard of a diet called isagenix?
    A family member of mine has just started this diet. I looked it up online and people claim to have lost alot of weight and inches off their body in as little as 11 days. Usually i dont believe diets like this but it says its a cleansing diet. Cleaning out your system and boosting up your metabolism. It claims to be all natural and healthy for you. I have been thinking of starting this myself but i would like some positive feedback. I am an ex athelete who took a 3 year break due to a brain tumor/brain surgury and am finally feeling better to get back into shape.
    Thanks everyone! I Started Isagenix yesterday and the first day i felt way better. I think i may have even lost a pound or two the first day. Today is my second day and its going great. My goal is to finish the 11 days then if i feel okay i am going to go with the 30day program. I want to lose about 70 pounds. So tomorrow is the real first day and my first cleanse, Lets see how it goes.

    • ANSWER:
      I just read the previous reply and I have to say it's inaccurate. While my answer may be biased (in that I have chosen to be affiliated with Isagenix as I certainly do endorse them), it's important to note that my colleagues are colon hydrotherapists, holistic practitioners, fitness instructors, top athletes, physicians and such. My reply (below) is not only based on having personally coached 100+ customers through the Isagenix program but from the feedback of these established (some of them very established and respected) professionals.

      The previous reply to your question talked about "water diets". That is different from a cleansing program (although sometimes marketed as the same thing). Forget Isagenix for a minute and feel free to type in "benefits of cleansing" in Google or pick up a book on the subject.

      Cleansing doesn't address "water weight", it addresses toxins. ABC News has done their own investigative report (namely on Isagenix) and 3rd party researchers have looked into the program.

      What you are looking for is a high quality and nutrient dense cleansing program... there are a few of them out there... of these, I feel that Isagenix is the best for efficiency, nutritional/health value and simplicity.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. QUESTION:
    How can I see weight-loss results from my workout?
    I have been working out for 2 weeks eating smaller portions and taking Caffine Free Hydroxycut. I work out on an eliptical for 30mins-1hr about 5 days a week. I also started doing palaties which I do 3 days a week. Yet I have not seen any results on the scale, not even 1-2lbs. Please help and serious advice please.

    • ANSWER:
      I totally understand where you're coming from. I've always struggled with a slow metabolism, so everytime I'd try to diet and exercise, I never saw any results on the scale.

      What worked for me was adding natural supplements like acai berry and colon cleanse products that helped to boost my energy levels and speed up my metabolism. Of course, eating healthy and getting lots of exercise are still important, but if you aren't seeing the results you want from them alone, you might want to consider adding a natural supplement or two.

      Hope this helps!

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.

  20. QUESTION:
    What can I do to boost my immune system when I feel like I'm going to get sick?
    I work at a childcare center. I've been here for 4 years and I still manage to get every cold/sore throat/stomach bug that goes around.

    I used to get sick on a weekly basis (one thing after another)...I have a TERRIBLE sore throat right now and its the first time i've been sick in the past 6 or 7 weeks.

    My throat has been sore in the morning for about 3 days - but over the day the sore throat went away (it didnt hurt too bad to begin with) Today its on fire!!

    What can I do to help my body fight these problems. I drink a lot of water, I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, I take a multi vitmain every day, and I exercise daily.
    I've tried "Airborne" ... that supplment that you put in water and drink thats supposed to boost your immune system... i think its gross.

    • ANSWER:
      Even though you are doing many things to help boost your immune system like eating fruits and veg., exercise, vitamins, and drinking water, your immune system is weak if you still get sick. Here are some reasons why our immune system get weakened.

      Toxins: Most people today have excess accumulation of toxins and waste material in their bodies causing their body to be acidic and adding stress to their immune system function. The two main reasons for this is
      1) People are putting hugh amounts of toxins (mostly unknowingly) in their bodies on a regular basis and
      2) their elimination channels are clogged, slow or sluggish.
      3) toxins like "junk" food, medications(drugs), sugars, excess alcohol, allergens all stress your immune system, thus making it weak and unable to fight the germs when exposed to them.

      Nutritional Deficiency:
      When your body lacks nutrition, you will have a weak immune system.
      Since our bodies can not produce nutrients needed for optimal health, quality food plays a major factor in keeping our cells healthy and our immune system strong. Food not only provides energy to your body, but all the nutrients that are essential for a healthy immune system.
      Lack of sufficient rest:
      lack of sleep will stress your immune system and thus increase the risk of catching a bug.

      Therefore, to build up your immune system, do as many of the following list as possible....

      1) keep practicing good personal hygiene care, wash your hands!

      2) get plenty of rest. During deep sleep, our body release potent immune-enhancing substances that strengthen your immune system function. By not allowing our body sufficient rest, the immune system will sputter, and as a result, not function at full capacity. We then are more likely to become ill with common illnesses. A healthy, deep sleep allows our body to release a significant amount of growth hormone that boost the immune system and aids in the growth and repair of the body.

      4) Receiving a Regular Body Cleansing.
      Body cleansing is essential because our bodies need to properly eliminate the toxic build up that has formed in our intestines (colon), which may lead to sickness and disease. Our body organs and tissues must be free of toxins for the immune system to function optimally thus enabling our bodies to receive the essential nutrients our bodies need.

      6) Eliminate all sugar and allergens from your diet.
      Just a small amount of sugar has been proven to impair white blood cells up to 50% for very short periods of time. By discovering what our personal food allergies are, then eliminating or desensitizing them will help strengthen your immune system. By removing these triggers, our immune cells are strengthened in order to combat other invaders such as influenza rather than the allergen. The elimination of sugar from your diet can also strengthen immune system.

      7) Eat nutritiously
      Best food that I drink that not only boost my immune system, but helps eliminate joint pain and gives me tremendous energy is MonaVie Juice
      Learn more about MonaVie at http://www.mymonavie.com/steveandtherese/index.asp

      8) Take supplements
      Supplements are needed because our bodies can not produce the nutrients necessary to maintain optimum health. There are many nutrients needed in order to maintain a strong immune system. It is very challenging in the world we live in to obtain sufficient nutrition with the foods available to us. They are over processed and void of many essential nutrients. Additionally, food is grown in soils that have been over-planted and saturated with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Vitamin and mineral deficiency subjects us to more diseases, aging, sickness, and the weakening of our immune system.

      Best herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, garlic, olive leaf extract, elderberry, or astragalus.
      The minerals zinc and selenium also help with boosting your immune system.

    Can A CT scan mistake a block as constipation?
    I've had pain in left side for 7mos, had internal ultrasound, nothing. Had hysterectomy in 96, right ovary removed in 2000. Thought that was pain now.

  23. QUESTION:
    is it worth doing the master cleanse for only 3 days?
    my mom and i are doing the master cleanse together and were only planning to do it for 3 days because neither of us have done a fast like this before.... is it worth it for only 3 days?

    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 whether you are attempting weight loss or just trying to "cleanse". The average adult 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. Plus the weight of the lost glycogen stores, excess sodium and associated water. This can add up to 15-20 lbs depending on your build. 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. And sadly metabolism actually drops.
      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.
      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.

  24. 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! :)

  25. 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!

  26. QUESTION:
    What is the best colon cleanse out there?
    I dont want one with side effects which could possibly raise my heart rate or keep me in the bathroom all day/night.. I have a 3 month old.. and no I'm not breastfeeding anymore.. but I need a good product.. Ive heard of colonix?

    • ANSWER:
      From all the people I've ever talked to, Ozone colonics tend to produce by far the best results. Unfortunately, it's sometimes difficult to find someone offering them. However if you do, beyond getting the best effects, they are also completely harmless (provided they are done by a good doctor, hence why the procedure is not widespread).

      If that doesn't float your boat, do what the naturopath's advocate and eat a purging diet (ie. lots of fiber).

  27. QUESTION:
    How often is our digestive system supposed to regulate itself?
    is that like once a day or like twice a day-
    i know a lot of toxins float in the body-
    so like excrement is removed like once a day- i guess! some say twice a day!
    wow i didnt know that about red meat beef and pork right?- but does chicken, seafood, and turkey do the same things?

    • ANSWER:
      The digestive system has a complex system of motility and secretion regulation which is vital for proper function. This task is accomplished via a system of long reflexes from the central nervous system (CNS), short reflexes from the enteric nervous system (ENS) and reflexes from GI peptides working in harmony with each other.

      Pork requires between five and six hours for its digestion.

      The transit time, or the amount of time it takes for food to move through the system, is a function of diet: for a vegetarian who eats a great deal of fiber, it will be on the short end, while for a meat eater who has just consumed a dinner of prime rib, it will take close to the maximum time.

      People who eat diets heavy in red meat or junk foods are also likely to experience a buildup, over time, of partially digested material on the linings of their intestines. Obviously, this is not a healthy situation, and to turn it around, a person may have to change his or her diet and perhaps even undergo some sort of colon-cleansing program.

      There is an easy way to test transit time in one's system: simply eat a large serving of corn or red beets, and measure how long it takes for these to fully work their way through the digestive system.

      I researched extensively till i found the following:

      DIGESTION TIME OF VARIOUS FOODS
      (approx. time spent in stomach before emptying). ........
      Water
      when stomach is empty, leaves immediately and goes into intestines,

      Legumes & Beans - (Concentrated Carbohydrate & Protein)
      Lentils, limas, chick peas, peas, pigeon peas, kidney beans, etc. - 90 min. digestion time
      soy beans -120 min. digestion time
      Seeds & Nuts
      Seeds - Sunflower, pumpkin, pepita, sesame - Digestive time approx. 2 hours.
      Nuts - Almonds, filberts, peanuts (raw), cashews, brazil, walnuts, pecans etc. - 2 1/2 to 3 hours to digest.

      Dairy

  29. QUESTION:
    Would a change in my diet for the better change my bowel movements for the worse?
    About a week ago I changed my diet up. Eating a bit more clean, less processed foods. Drinking more water, also excersizing more. And my bowel movements are really inconsistant. I used to poop maybe once a day (if that) but today its not even 5 oclock in the evening and I've pooped about 4 times. Could this just be my body cleansing itself? Or what?

    • ANSWER:
      More water is the best change, especially for females. Women should drink 8 glasses of water a day and pee every 2 hours to keep your urinary system flushed and prevent UTI's.

      More water also helps you poo. How often you go depends mostly on what you eat. "Normal" can be anywhere from 3 times a day to 3 times a week. It's whatever is normal for you.

      If you feel like you're not going enough I'd recommend a warm water enema. I'd recommend one about once a week or if you haven't gone for 3 days or more. It works in a few minutes and doesn't cause cramps or "accidents" like laxatives can.

      Stay away from fiber supplements, they're an expensive scam. It's like eating sawdust. Fiber stuffs your colon full and forces you to go. They can cause constipation in many people. (including me)

  30. QUESTION:
    How many days is it safe to fast from food?
    I am an emotional eater who has 2 basic levels, either can stay away from food completely, or binge. I have found fasting for a few days a week has really helped me gain control of myself, and then can eat healthy for several days afterward, but then bad cycle begins again, so I've started fasting weekly to keep the control. but am wondering howmany days can you do it safely.My deductible on health insurance is too high to try to see dr to ask. My stats are female age 41, weight 340 lbs, have lost 25 in past 3 months. no known health problems yet(the blood pressure cuff at walmart I check all the time and I am in the good range, amazing for someone at my weight). For physical activity I have a office job so I sit alot, but do regular housekeeping stuff and take care of family, don't sit on butt and watch tv all night. Do yard work on weekends and have a 2nd job 1 day a week that is driving. Walk about 3 times a week for a mile but not on days I am fasting.

    • ANSWER:
      There is nothing wrong at all with fasting,especially if it helps you gain control of your eating problem. Here's an excerpt from a really good book I read, and the website below has great advice. Jesus Christ fasted as documented in the Bible, it wouldn't be there if as His example if it were bad for us.
      Fasting can break many food addictions, such as coffee, sweets, alcohol, smoke and other bad habits
      The natural process of toxin excretion continues, while the influx of new toxins is reduced, This results in a reduction of total body toxicity.
      • The energy usually used for digestion is redirected to immune function, cell growth, and eliminatory processes.
      • The immune system’s workload is greatly reduced, and the digestive tract is spared any inflammation due to allergic reactions to food.
      • Due to a lowering of serum fats that thins the blood; tissue oxygenation is increased and white blood cells are moved more efficiently.
      • Fat-stored chemicals, such as pesticides and drugs, are released.
      • Physical awareness and sensitivity to diet and surroundings are increased.
      Due to these effects of fasting, a fast can help you heal with greater speed,’ cleanse your liver, kidneys, and colon,’ purify your blood,’ help you lose excess weight and water,’ flush out toxins,. clear the eyes and tongue,’ and cleanse the breath."

  31. QUESTION:
    Can anyone suggest a good 7 day detox plan?
    I am looking to start a 7 day detox plan followed by a raw food plan and then a juice fast. Does anyone know any 7 day plans to start me off on my way? And can anyone tell me what the benefits are?
    Thank You!

    • ANSWER:
      I was exactly where you are last year when I started detoxing and a raw food diet.

      I have tried a few detox and colon cleansing plans over the past year and the one that I have continued with is called Sukkiri Detox out of Japan (don't worry, the ship worldwide cheap).

      There is a 3day pre-cleanse followed by a 7day detox. I have done it both while doing a juice fast and on my second cleanse I did it with organic raw foods.

      Benefits:
      I lost about 5 pounds, my tummy flattened out, the bumps around my temple for the most part disappeared and I felt extremely sharp. My mind was crisp. I guess everyone has different experiences but if you have done it you will know what I mean.

      I have done a good job staying on the raw foods diet because I cleanse every 3 months. That way, when I start to stray from my diet, I try to remember that I have a cleanse coming up and I have to prepare which helps me stick to it.

      Good luck!

  32. QUESTION:
    How long will it take to loss weight or a toned body with pilates?
    If I do it half an hour for 5 days a week...how long will it take until i notice a difference. Does pilates really work?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to lose weight

      The most important thing is...you would need a radical shift in diet. Your goal should be to integrate living foods into your diet. The regimen should be additive. The options are raw vegetables, raw nuts raw seeds and raw fruits.

      This is referred to as a raw food diet. No you do not eat raw meats or eggs. If you are trying to lose weigh ti would suggest beginning with at least 50% raw nutrition.

      Lets start with foods. For 5 dollars you can buy a jar of organic cocnut oil. In order to burn fat you need good fats. Make sure the coconut oil is raw. Cold filtered/pressed what have you.. it should be. Cocount oil speeds up metabolism, but be mindful, you should only integrate higher than moderate amounts of coconut oil if you have been integrating living plant based foods into your diet, because it is high in saturated fat. Not bad saturated fats, the good ones but still its content is high.

      Read this article. http://www.natural-green-guide.com/raw-f...

      it outlines the basics. If you were to spend your money on a product to rapidly drop pounds id say go for a colon cleanse. drink as much clean water as you can (NOT TAP WATER) distilled is good for detoxing. I can give you a few reccomendations for a colon cleanse, Let nature be your pharmacy.

      I began a raw food diet about 4 months ago, starting with a living food smoothie in the morning, though i used vega as an additive which is relatively expensive but way way worth the price. 1 banana, frozen berries and whatever fresh fruits available plus a scoop or so of vega. (its a full spectrum source of protein plus a whole food optimizer)

      Within 3 months i had lost 50 pounds. Call me a liar until you try it yourself. Mind you i had been a vegetarian for a few years prior but you can still be a vegetarian and completely unhealthy.

      The most important things is to stimulate your digestive system. Clean it out. Give your body the nutrients it needs. the easiest way to do it is to COMMIT to it. And it will not be a chore.

      If you switch to a plant based diet your pilates wont just be easier and give you more results, but you will actually build and retain muscle as well. I can dispell the protein myth if you like. Animal proteins especially cooked animal products deteriorate your bodies functioning over time

      I spoke to a woman who was about 10 years older than my mother who had recently switched to a raw vegan diet and everyone she knew was astounded upon learning she was eating live plant based foods thinking it was some sort of incredible sacrafice when really it becomes the best thing to have ever done. Feel good, reach your ideal body weight, and get in tune with your body at a cellular level. No one else will do it for you, and most people around you are clueless. If youre going to take charge of your health do it regaurdless of what others around you are doing.

      well i sure hope you like reading! I type things out and forget when enoughs enough. I hope I've been a help and hope to hear about your positive changes!

  33. QUESTION:
    What causes headaches and diarreha?
    I've been having an ongoing headache for 3 days now and nothing seems to help.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi EMT

      Here are some remedies to help with your issue. Be sure to do a colon cleanse to rid of the toxins in your body.

      Cause
      This is often the result of a disturbance in some other part of the body, such as digestive disorders in the stomach, liver or bowel; problems in the abdominal area; menstrual irregularities, impingements in the cervical; concussion, eye strain, nervous excitement, fatigue, etc. The headache is a mechanism which signals some serious problem elsewhere. The common headache is due to faulty elimination, and the waste matter causes problems until the toxic wastes reach the stomach nerves and affects them. Sometimes headaches are caused from panic, fear, or worrying about the unknown. Headaches of this type are the hardest to relieve, generally requiring something strong like a heavy nervine tea with lobelia in it to diminish the nervous excitement. A nerve tea such as valerian or skullcap with a few drops of tincture of lobelia to a cup will give relief.

      Food allergies are another very common cause of headache. The worst culprit is sugar; I have experienced sugar headaches, which are sort of a withdrawal; you eat the sugar, and then as the body is trying to eliminate the toxic substance, your head pounds. Cheese commonly causes headaches, probably the worst of the dairy products for this, although allergies to any of them may cause the pain. Meats and eggs are also common allergens.

      Quick Action Plan for Headaches

      1. Since food allergies can play a role in over 90 percent of certain types of headaches, such as migraine, it is important that you be screened for food allergies and sensitivities, and avoid eating all foods that you are allergic or sensitive to.

      2. Emphasize a diet of fresh, organic foods with an emphasis on vegetables, especially dark leafy green vegetables, salads, free-range organic poultry, wild-caught, cold-water fish, and non-gluten, complex carbohydrate foods, such as red potatoes, squash, and yams.

      3. A helpful dietary remedy for headaches is “potassium broth,” which can be made by combining washed but unpeeled carrots and potatoes with a variety of potassium-rich green vegetables into a pot of water. Bring the water to a boil, and then simmer for ten to 15 minutes, then strain out the broth and sip it throughout the day.

      4. To help prevent and reverse headaches, supplement with B-complex vitamins, vitamin B3, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, along with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), evening primrose oil, and the amino acid DL-phenylalanine.

      5. Certain herbs can also help prevent and reduce headache symptoms. These include bay leaves, cayenne pepper, chamomile, coriander, garlic, ginkgo biloba, ginger, skullcap, turmeric, valerian root, wild yam, and willow bark.

      6. Since headaches are often due to chronic muscle tension and/or muscle spasm, bodywork can be extremely helpful in minimizing the risk of headaches, especially Alexander Technique, Bowen Therapy, Feldenkrais, massage therapy, Polarity therapy, Structural Integration and Rolfing.

      7. Hot baths, saunas, and steam baths can help ease headache pain by increasing blood circulation and easing muscle tension.

      8. Learning how to cope with daily stress by practicing relaxation exercises can also significantly reduce the incidence of headaches. One of the simplest methods of relaxation is simply to close your eyes as you sit comfortably in a chair, breathing gently and deeply through your belly. Do this for five minutes at a time and repeat throughout the day.

      9. At the first sign of migraine symptoms, add two tablets of Alka-Seltzer Gold to a glass of water and drink immediately. This simple technique can often halt migraine symptoms very quickly.

      10. Cleansing the bowels is the most important step for headaches and especially diarreha. Be sure to cleanse for5-7 days.

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

  34. QUESTION:
    Will my metabolism be negatively affected of I juice for a week?
    I have a juicer and recipes because it's something my mom wanted to try for a while and now I want to juice for a week to cleanse and drop unwanted bodyfat - paired with exercise of course. My concerns: will I mess up my metabolism? Will I lose muscle mass? Will it be beneficial to me?

    • ANSWER:
      Like diet pills, teas, and fad diets, juice fasting gets the credit for a simple change in diet.
      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.

  36. QUESTION:
    How Do You Know When You Need A Colon Cleanse?
    How do you know when you need a colon cleanse and how old do you have to be to do a colon cleanse?

    Thanks For Your Answer =D

    • ANSWER:
      Before you undergo colon cleansing, it is wise to read information first. Starting a cleansing program on a Monday evening works well for most who can take the rest of the week off easily and smoothly.

      If you are working or have heavy activities lined up during weekdays, plan to have a colon cleanse program during weekends. Since most colon cleansing procedure will greatly affect your overall system for almost three days, you should devote time for the program when you have a vacation or during weekends.

      Any colon cleanse symptoms should recede within 3 to 4 days. Changing your diet a few days before the actual cleanse will greatly help in reducing side effects and to promote regular bowel movements.

  37. QUESTION:
    Would I keep the weight off if I use the lemonade diet and workout?
    i plan on doing the Lemonade Diet for 2 weeks, workout 4 out of 7 days [since i do work a lot] and eat fruits, and unsalted mixed nuts. along with water of course, but i really need to lose the weight, i weigh 168 and im 5'3. would i keep the weight off? and has anyone tried the lemonade diet?

    • ANSWER:
      No because the starvation lemonade diet teaches your body to manage on fewer calories, so it's easy to put weight on when you go back to eating normally.
      You will be lucky to have the energy to work out while doing the diet.

      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. By engaging in this practice for an extended period of time, you are effectively wiping out one of your first lines of defense against infection and sickness.

      In addition, prolonged fasting has many negative side effects, including all the symptoms that go along with malnutrition: insomnia, cravings, nausea, depressed mood, hair loss... the list goes on. Proponants of the Master Cleanse will tell you that these are signs that the toxins in your body are being eliminated, but you would experience the same symptoms on a water-only fast.

      Certain useful bacteria being destroyed. Dehydration is a common side effect of the master cleanse diet, as water content in the body is reduced. No new muscles are formed in the body as there is no intake of proteins or carbohydrates during the fast.Insomnia, nausea, depression and craving are other master cleanse dangers.

  38. QUESTION:
    How often should I be on a citrus cleanse?
    You see I have been researching and I see that you can lose over five to fifteen pounds by doin a citrus or lemonade diet or cleanse and I need that to became a healthy at the rate weight individual and if I were to successfully complete the diet or cleanse how often would I have to do it and how do you do it in descretion??

    • 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 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.
      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.

  39. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to do a full body detox cleanse? Ive been sluggish & tired lately, I want to start fresh!
    I want to do a full body detox cleanse. I have been so tired and sluggish lately, and need something to cleanse my system. I last did a cleanse about 4 months ago & it really helped, but they have since discontinued the product I used.
    I am a 24 y.o female, moderately active lifestyle, in s. ontario. I eat mainly organic and healthy foods, no fast food at all. Walk my dog every day with my son. Am on a budget, and some cleanse programs I checked out are ridiculously expensive. I'd like to find something that won't cost me anything outrageous, and is affordable to do every 3 months or so.
    I take a multi vitamin, B12, B6, and iron supplements.
    I have IBS, and cleansing seems to help calm it down a lot, too.

    Any info on how to do a really in depth, full detox would be fabulous. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      ... Sounds like you are doing a good job of taking care of yourself. Good for you. ...

      My personal experience is that fasting is the most powerful and most natural way to cleanse the body. ... Some folks believe that properly done juice fasting is the best way to do this,.. and others believe that straight water fasting is the only true way to fast. ........ Personally, I feel that juice fasting is by far the wiser choice for someone who has not already done a good deal of cleansing work on their system,.. or at least already well into a cleansing, organic and healthy vegetarian diet. ................. If you are talking about someone who is already on a pretty clean diet and who is not taking any sorts of medications or with any serious illnesses,.. than I would say that water fasting is a safe way to go.
      .... If a person is taking any sort of medications,... then I would definately not do any sort of fasting. In that case, I would encourage them to go on a cleansing diet, (such as you already follow). ............ If someone is dealing with any sort of serious illness,.. then I would reccommend that they only fast under professional supervision.

      Fasting, as a form of cleansing, is thousands of years old,... and of course, (if you are not juice fasting),.. it costs absolutely nothing financially. .. Fasting is an extremely powerful tool for promoting and maintaining health. .................. If you have never fasted before,. I would reccommend that you begin by doing a couple of 24 hour fasts once a week,.. followed by a couple of 3 day fasts once a month,.. followed by a seven day fast which you might do perhaps one month after your second 3 day fast. ................. After that,.. you can either move up to a 10 or a 14 day fast, if that feels right for you,.. (perhaps a few months or more after the 7 day fast), ........... and then You could do something like one 7 or 10 day fast once a year or once every six months,.. to continue to promote and maintain your health.
      .............. You need to know that fasting is a science,.. and there is much to learn about how to properly begin,.. undergo and then end and come out of a fast. .... There are some good books available which will instruct you on how to properly fast. Most of them offer somewhat different approaches and philosophies,.. but if you are talking about a straight water fast,... the important instruction pertains to how to begin and how to end the fast. ............ You could look into the books by such authors as; Paul Bragg or Paavo Airola (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=br_ss_hs/103-4191513-9866213?platform=gurupa&url=index%3Dblended&keywords=Fasting&Go.x=7&Go.y=9) ....

      There is also information available for free on the web. You will definately find that everyone offers different advice and different approaches. You should choose the advice that feels right to you and your needs.

      If you do choose to fast,.. you may want to try and get some high colonics once or twice after you are well into the fast, to help clean out your colon. This is an excellent additional tool to go along with the cleansing process.

      Be Well....

  40. QUESTION:
    What are the benefits / negatives from colon cleansing?
    I want to do this but would like to know if there are benefits and problems with doing one. Any help with a particular brand that I should buy?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, Mike S was the closest... they do help you to poop, and they are often similar to a high fiber diet.
      However, Colon cleansers are much more potent and powerful than a high-fiber diet, which is why they cost so much more, as he so eloquently put it. That's why many people prefer them if they don't like what would be required in a high-fiber diet.... it gets it over with faster. It's most beneficial for people that don't eat a lot of fiber, but want to change to a healthier diet with more fiber because it "gets you through the transition" faster. Simply put, in that situation, you'll have more liquefied stools for only a few days instead of a few weeks with a diet change.

      Overall benefits for Colon Cleansers is that most people feel cleaner, healthier, and more energetic... like after a good poop or after you've been on a high-fiber diet for a while. Most people that stick with a full cleansing tend to repeat them every so often if they don't have enough fiber in their diet.
      As far as brands to get, anything with a good variety of ingredients from a good quality company (which most that are sold in stores are) would be just fine. As long as there are at least 3-5 ingredients for cleansing, it should be fine, but the best bet is a few sources of fiber and preferably some probiotics (like Acidophilus, for example).

      A lot of doctors may say Colon Cleansers are useless or a waste... but typically those are the doctors that haven't used them and haven't talked to people that have used them.

    How long would it take to notice a difference if you just STOP eating?
    like nothing in the day or just apples?
    how long would it take to notice a differnce... if you are not really fat to begin with?

    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Oh dear, terrible plan again .
      do not starve yourself , eat a lot but the right food. The only way to loose weight fast is to raise your metabolism, to burn more fat. not to starve yourself because your body is very intellident, it can detect when you are lack of calories from food and makes u feel sleepy to restore calories for the body.
      Eat negative calories or high fiber food: Asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, lettuce & zucchini. Because these food require a lot of calories to digest so in return the more you eat the more calories you can burn without doing anything.
      Fruits that are good for you are apple, grapefruit ( as much as possible , no harm ) or any other type of citrus like pomelo or orange.
      Eat many small meals rather than 2 or 3 big meals. Because if u do so you will get your body to work all the time to digest the food and it will keep your body digestion up => burn more calories.
      Drink a lot of green tea. Good for your health, delicious and high antioxident. Not only for weight loss but also for better looking skin.
      Go to sauna or swimming, dogwalking if ur lazy. Keep yourself active even when ur lazy :-D .
      Spicy food help boost metabolism.
      Eat more fish and beef, mincemeat . if you eat chicken dont eat the skin.
      Drink omega 3 fish oil supplement to have better concentration and memory, and omega 3 fish oil helps the body to prevent restore fat.
      You can check here for more explanation about this, the best article about diet and i saved it in my favorite. http://www.squidoo.com/howtoraisemetabolism

Go here for the trial www.heavenlifenow.com .
      Be active always to loose weight, I lose 8 lbs in the last 5 weeks.

  43. QUESTION:
    What is the best way for a 16 year old girl to lose weight?
    Im 16 and i weigh around 240-250. I need to make a change in my life and i need to lose weight. Eventually i would like to lose around 70-100lbs. How can I do this? Are diet pills an option? I really need help so any advice is appreciated

    • ANSWER:
      Do not take pills. No colon cleanse. No diets.

      You're right in saying that you need to make a life change.

      (1) Stop eating junk and processed foods. They're not good for you and destroy your body.
      (2) Exercise! We were hunters at some point. Can you hunt just sitting down and eating cookies all day? Start slowly and don't push yourself to the point of hurting yourself. Start with walks and eventually increase the intensity. The effectiveness of a work out is all dependent on the "EFFORT."
      (3) Psychologically believe in yourself. Your results also depend highly on what's going on in your head. It is up to you whether you want success or not. Self-sabotage is easily accomplished. You have to push yourself to sacrifice the tasty treats and eat salad with lean chicken everyday.
      (4) Be a kid! You're 16-years-old! Sign up for something you can be active with. Go do karate, dance class, basketball camp, or something of that nature. Live your life. The world is a beautiful place and you should go out and enjoy it.

      Simply put, you just need to eat right and exercise. You should learn to do this naturally without ever forcing yourself to do it. Eventually, you'll love eating that way and you'll love being active. It takes time, but once you get there you'll never go back.

  44. QUESTION:
    I found these free supplements online to help get ripped, should I use them? look below?
    They are Acai Force Max and Colon Cleanse Extreme. I am 15 years old and weigh 130 lbs. I'd say I'm in great shape, but I want to gain muscle and look strong and good, abs, arms and all that. I do not want to lose weight, if anything I want to gain it. Should I use these?

    • ANSWER:
      I once studied biochemistry and I used to work out quite a bit.

      You really have to understand how food works. Chemically, sugar, starch, protein and fat are pretty much the same molecule. They just differ in how your body processes what you eat. Sugars are instant energy, starches are longer term energy and fats are the hardest to break down but the easiest to convert to fat on YOU. Protein is easily converted to muscle, if your working hard enough that you body needs protein.

      Supplements in general are like snake oil. Everyone is selling the idea that by taking their special sugar-vitamin water of the month, you can gain pounds faster and build muscle. Every year, millions of dollars are spent on the newest fad product. This year is Acai products.

      Most bodybuilders agree (from interviews I have read with Olympic athletes, pro bodybuilders and etc.) that the staple supplements are creatine, glutamine, and Protein.

      Creatine allegedly makes your body absorb water so the wastes generated by working out are more diluted in your system. This means you get less tired, less quickly and less sore after working out which would mean that you could work out harder and more frequently.

      Glutamine is part of Testosterone. It’s allegedly the part that your most frequently short of, when your body tries to build its own testosterone. By taking Glutamine, you produce as much Testosterone as your body can, without steroids. Testosterone is produced by using your muscles, but that's another question with another long answer. Its not the working out that makes your muscles, it’s the testosterone. Working out is just a way to force your system to produce more.

      As a growing athletic person, you should be eating around 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight. At 150 pounds, that like, half a steak. Excess protein does not make you gain muscle faster. Lifting progressively heavier weights (You should be lifting 3 sets for 5-10 reps and ending with muscle failure, to gain mass.) makes you bigger. Lifting lower weights for more reps, trains for endurance.

      You should probably take a multivitamin like Centrum. You really don't need to spend a bucket of money at some holistic medicine shop, to have them sell you triple or quadruple the recommended dosage of vitamins at an inflated price. Vitamins’ can KILL YOU if you overtake them.

      Eat a balanced diet heavy in fruits and vegetables. Eat protein (Eggs, meat, soy, fish, etc...) in smallish amounts throughout the day. Overeating makes you fat, not buff.

      One theory is that while body building, you need to keep snacking on healthy sources in between meals. Drink enough water, until you’re pee is nearly clear. You should be drinking at least a liter a day. Minimum. At your size, weight and age, just lifting progressively heavier weights and eating three meals a day should be sufficient.

      Colon Cleanse? It’s to make your bowels more regular? Why would that have anything to do with building muscle? What are they supposed to be cleansing from your system? If they say "toxins" ask "What toxins specifically does it remove?" It sounds like something my grandfather would be taking.

  45. QUESTION:
    is using colon cleanser good way to treat constipation?
    Is it? I'm having constipation so I added more fibers to my diet but I still got constipated so I bougth a colon cleanser the other day and tried it. It worked but it caused severe diarhrea so I got scared of using this product.

    • 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

      for more on what the mucusless diet is

      a diet like the hallelujah diet leaving out rice would be a form of a mucusless diet. (hacres.com)

  47. QUESTION:
    How long can I continously take colon cleansing pills before it is considered unhealthy?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Lucy,

      It depends I suppose on the type of pills you are taking.

      I use a natural colon cleanse made from a combination of herbs and fiber (Herbal Fiberblend) and is in powder form. You can do a thorough cleanse for 3-4 months and then take a small amount each day for the rest of your life if you wanted to. There is nothing harmful in it at all.

      It isn't necessary to continue with a full colon cleanse indefinitely. If you are having trouble with constipation or other bowel issues, a short term colon cleanse should take care of the problem.

      If you are taking the colon cleansing pills as a way to try to keep your weight down over a long time, that isn't a good idea. A healthy diet and regular exercise is much more sensible.

      Although some people don't think colon cleansing is necessary, there are many fine doctors, both current and throughout history, who promote the importance of colon cleansing for digestive health.

  48. QUESTION:
    Roughly how much weight do you think I would lose in 3 months eating 1200 calories a day?
    I'm 158cm tall, 5 foot 2. If I stuck to a healthy diet of 1200 calories a day, how much weight do you think I'd lose in 3 months? Would I lose any weight at all?

    • ANSWER:
      It is important to eat good to remain in good health. Colon cleanse is an amazing suplement which keeps you in good health and additionally has the bonus of helping you to lose loads of weight. There's a free trial happening currently at http://kecods.slimmimg.info , try it out, what's the worst that could happen?

  49. QUESTION:
    Please give me diet chart to reduce my weight?
    I usually almost prefer vegetarian food as i hate non-veg. I also hate egg, sweets and i wont eat creamy foods too. Now im over weight. My weight is not reducing or increasing since 3-4 years. I found my weight increased suddenly a 4 years ago and it is constant till now. I want to reduce my weight now... So please give me diet chart and exercises to do.

    • ANSWER:
      Combinations of fresh carrot, celery, beet, spinach, apple and coconut are ideal. However much you like citrus or tomato juice, these are really too acidic to drink while fasting. Remember also to drink plenty of water and avoid consuming anything other than the broth, juice, water, and unnecessary medications/supplements.

      You can add something to make the drink more exciting - ginger is my favorite. I also have a great recipe for vegetable broth (see below).

      Juice can be consumed throughout the day as needed. Drinking less juice will speed up the detoxification process, whereas more will slow it down. It's not set in stone, so go with what feels right.

      When doing a cleanse, you should take colon-cleansing herbs and Psyllium husks - the Psyllium will help you to feel a little more full while also gently scraping the old fecal matter out of your colon. Excellent Psyllium products can be found online.

      This diet should normally last only 3 days to a week, after which you should go back to your normal diet or consumption. Hopefully you will feel so great that you will make some changes in your diet going forward, maybe introduce some fresh vegetables, to prolong the positive effects of the cleanse.
      Vegetable Broth Recipe

      This is a great vegetable broth recipe that you can use for a 3-7 day cleanse. Drink it whenever you feel hungry! Try to use organic ingredients as much as possible.

      Ingredients:
      2 litres of water
      2 large potatoes (peeled)
      1 onion
      3 carrots
      4 garlic cloves

      Chop all the vegetables and add to water. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, then drain the vegetables. I like to add a little cayenne pepper but this is optional.

  50. QUESTION:
    How can I eat properly without losing weight?
    I'd like to eat a more alkaline based diet (greens, beans, etc), but slightly increase my weight. I'm 6'3" and 185 lbs, moderate exercise. I can't continue eating fast food and drinking a gallon of coffee every day and sh*t like that. Also, don't tell me to buy a juicer, please.

    • ANSWER:
      I have tried out every diet in the book but nothing worked as well as colon cleanse. I realize they say that pills do not work, nevertheless they sure worked for me, and they've been featured on the Rachael Ray Show too. There is a free trial on right now at http://dequls.mykeepfitpro.info , try it out, why not?

  1. QUESTION:
    what is a good OTC laxative that works well at cleaning you out and not bring too harsh?
    I am looking for a good laxative to really clean me out. I would like something fast acting and not something that's going to make me sit on the toilet for half the day with little results. Also I would like to know if there are any good colon cleanse systems OTC or internal cleanse products that are natural? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sena, There are a few options but if its a quick and certain cleanse then I can recommend warmed Prune Juice and Milk of Magnesia taken at the same time, A large glass of prune juice and about two or three tablespoons of Milk of Magnesia with a large glass of water, drink them over about 10 minutes and you will definately get a result within 1 to 2 hours.

      You wont get any cramps or pains, just a very sudden and certain need to go! so stay near a loo!, you will most likely get a couple of repeat actions in the next hour but after that you should be able to get on with your day.

      Definately stay near a toilet within an hour of drinking the two or you really could get caught short!! Trust me I know about that one!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi KC

      Here are some real answers on skin conditions. Remedies at the bottom. Cleansing the body of toxins is the key. Especially a colon cleanse! Educate yourself on detoxifying the blood.

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath. When our skin is unhealthy it is usually a reflection of the internal state of our bodies, and is often a sign of poor elimination of toxins and waste products. Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, rosacea, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body's first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems."

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body's overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin."

      Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Juice Fasting is the world's most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body.

      Natural Cures

      1. Fruits and Vegetables for Acne: Carrot & spinach, celery & watercress, grapefruit juices are all useful to combat acne.

      2. Unwholesome Foods: Acne, a prevalent problem among teen-aged boys would not be possible in our society if our foods were wholesome. A most sad and disgusting sight is the pus-filled pimples due to inner toxicity --- wastes trying desperately to escape through the face. This condition often turns a gentle face in the blossom of youth into a waste dump of pimples, pus and subsequent pock marks which can be prevented. The tons of acne medications and prescriptions sold annually act only on the effect of the harmful food, and not the cause of the disease, malnutrition. The traditional teenage meal, a grease burger, french fries and a milk shake or cola simply does not provide enough nourishment for anyone, let alone a boy going through puberty to adulthood. Our highly processed foods are devoid of hormones found in fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. Must do a colon cleanse to rid of all the toxins in the body, which eventually get into the blood and cause acne and all other diseases.

      3. Cabbage: Apply a lotion of freshly prepared cabbage juice preceded, if desired, by the application of leaves. The eating of cabbage leaves or juice is also helpful.

      4. Lemon Juice: Skin problems such as acne... will often respond to a treatment of lemon juice. For blackheads rub lemon juice over them each night.

      5. Black Walnut: Externally, Black Walnut is nearly a miracle worker in cases of ...acne, dandruff, boils, itch, shingles, ringworm--we could go on, but you can see that you can use Black Walnut whenever a skin disorder appears! The tincture is an excellent first-aid remedy for wounds.

      Add lemon to flavour if you wish and gain the added benefit of cleansing your liver at the same time.

      Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush waste quicker. When you don't drink enough water the liver needs to help the kidneys perform this function. When the liver has to help the kidneys its normal function of providing stored fat for energy is slowed down.

      Green tea

      Drink 5 cups a day. Research shows this can burn a massive 80 calories a day! It is believed the antioxidant catechins in green tea boost the metabolism and help burn fat.

      Chilli sauce & mustard

      These foods increase your calorie burning capacity by between 5 - 10% for up to 2 hours after eating. This is because they contain capsaicin which speeds the metabolism, so if you enjoy hot food your in luck!

      Low fat diary foods

      Eating fiber foods to help keep things moving through your bowel as stated above and makes you feel full.

      The average person can lose 9-10 pounds in one year just from doubling their fiber intake aim for 25grams per day ( the average for most adults is just 8grams ) fiber rich foods include strawberries, apples, brown rice, chick peas, potatoes ( with skins ) and brown rice.

      2. Unwholesome Foods: Acne, a prevalent problem among teen-aged boys would not be possible in our society if our foods were wholesome. A most sad and disgusting sight is the pus-filled pimples due to inner toxicity --- wastes trying desperately to escape through the face. This condition often turns a gentle face in the blossom of youth into a waste dump of pimples, pus and subsequent pock marks which can be prevented. The tons of acne medications and prescriptions sold annually act only on the effect of the harmful food, and not the cause of the disease, malnutrition. The traditional teenage meal, a grease burger, french fries and a milk shake or cola simply does not provide enough nourishment for anyone, let alone a boy going through puberty to adulthood.

      Here are some real answers on skin conditions. Remedies at the bottom. Cleansing the body of toxins is the key. Especially a colon cleanse! Educate yourself on detoxifying the blood and removing excess waste from the body.

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath.

Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, rosacea, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body's first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds.

    • ANSWER:
      I highly recommend Acai Berry Extreme / Vital Cleanse Colon Cleanse Set - Powerful Weight Loss Diet Pill Combination

      I used the Acai Berry Extreme by itself and definitely lost weight and felt much better. After a few months I wanted to see if I could get even more results, so I tried this combination pack with the Vital Cleanse. Wow! I have definitely seen even better results. I am much more "regular" and my bowel movements aren't strained at all. I feel like I'm finally losing that stubborn little bit of extra stuff in my lower belly. It's actually flattened out. I wish I was able to post some pics so you could see what I mean. I definitely recommend this product to anyone. My appetite is under control. I'm sleeping better at night and I can feel more energy throughout the day. I will use this product again and again. The only thing I wish they could add to the product is a fat blocker. Also, the company that makes the product has been very supportive in answering questions I've had from time to time (HH Nutritionals). I hope this was helpful for you.

      I bought it with free shipping from...

  13. QUESTION:
    where can i get free information about a cleansing diet?
    And what exactly is it?

    • ANSWER:
      There are two types of fiber—soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water. In the blood, soluble fiber helps to lower serum cholesterol by binding with low-density lipoproteins. Water-soluble fiber can be found in apples, oranges, oat bran and beans.

      Insoluble fiber is the substance in food that cannot be digested or absorbed by the intestine. This category includes pectin, cellulose, hemicellulose and gums. Fiber is found only in plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains. Eggs, dairy products, and meats do not contain any form of fiber.

      Studies found that cultures that have a high fiber diet have a much lower incidence of diverticulosis, which affects 30 million Americans. A weakening in the large intestinal wall caused by the pressure from hard feces produces this disease. The American Journal of Digestive Disorders reported that 85% of diverticulosis sufferers were successfully treated with a high-fiber diet.

      Fiber cleans out mucus from the intestinal tract and lowers cholesterol. Fiber decreases the transit time through the intestine. Cancer of the colon can be attributed to a lack of dietary fiber. Animal products do not have any fiber so their passage through the intestine is slow. The proteins ferment and allow harmful bacteria to multiply within the colon. The harmful bacteria secrete carcinogenic waste as a by-product that damages the intestine. Nutritionists recommend a salad with a meal high in meat or dairy products. The fiber in vegetables slows down fermentation and neutralizes some of the toxins in the bowel. It is important to break a fast with fruits and vegetables. Their high fiber content acts like a cleaning sponge within the intestine.

  23. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of cellulite?
    I have an audition on the 29th for a movie.
    and if I get it in the first scene I will have to wear a corset with suspenders. If I get it, Ive already planned to get more toned. But what can I do about cellulite

    Is there anything any of you have tried thats worked

    • ANSWER:
      Cellulite is unattractive dimpled and puckered skin on the body. Most cellulite appears on areas of the body that have a lot of fatty tissue such as the buttocks, thighs and abdomen. Many treatments exist to get rid of these fatty deposits. Creams, massage devices and plastic surgery all claim to remove cellulite. Detoxifying is an alternative method for getting rid of cellulite. While there is no guarantee that a cellulite detox will work, it is a healthy approach to getting rid of the lumpy flesh. Also detoxification may improve your over all health and help you to lose weight.

      Difficulty: Moderately Easy
      Instructions

      1
      Drink water each day, at least 8 cups. Water helps you to feel full so you are less likely to overeat. Water also adds bulk to fecal matter so bowel movements occur more often. This allows the body to rid itself of harmful materials and toxic substances that the body removes through the colon. Add lemon to the water, as this will act as a natural purifier within your body.

      2
      Exercise every day to reduce fat deposits. Exercise is a great way to lose weight and the fat that contributes to the cellulite. Aerobic exercise offers the fastest way to lose fat. Walking, running, dancing, biking and other forms of physical activity are very effective in burning fat. Because most toxins are stored in the fat cells, ridding the body of fat not only helps to reduce the amount of toxins the body stores but also reduces cellulite..

      3
      Eat high-fiber foods every day. High-fiber foods include fruits, vegetables and whole grains. These foods make you feel full so you eat less. Fiber-rick foods also add bulk to fecal matter so a person has more bowel movements. The fruits and vegetables provide important vitamins and minerals the body needs to stay healthy. Eating better reduces the amount of fat you consume so the cellulite decreases. The Mayo Clinic recommends eating 20 to 35 grams of fiber each day to improve colon health.

      4
      Eat less foods rich in fat and sugar. Also do not smoke cigarettes or consume large amounts of alcohol. Caffeine is also considered harmful to health. By eliminating or reducing certain substances, you can improve you over health, cleanse the body of toxic materials and unhealthy fat, and ultimately lose the cellulite.

      5
      Consume foods that alive and organic. As a part of your detox regime, eat nothing that has been frozen or reconstituted. Eat green leafy vegetables at least twice daily. Add garlic to all the alive and organic foods that are you are eating, as it acts as a natural liver enzyme activator which helps them body more rapidly rid itself of toxins.

      The quest for a cure for cellulite, the lumpy fat deposits most women have on their thighs and buttocks, is a seemingly endless endeavor. By some estimates, as many as 98 percent of women have some degree of cellulite on their bodies. There are many different suggested remedies for cellulite, but it seems the only way to win the battle of these bulges is to take a multi-tiered approach.

      Difficulty: Moderately Challenging
      Instructions

      things you'll need:
      Topical creams
      Attack Cellulite From all Directions

      1
      Tone up your muscles with strength building and resistance exercises. Studies have shown that improving muscle firmness can help you get rid of cellulite. Concentrate extra time on muscle beneath the areas with lots of cellulite, but create a total body workout for best results.

      2
      Stick to a low calorie diet. Cellulite is not exclusive to overweight women, but eating healthy will keep the size of your fat cells small. This is not enough to get rid of cellulite, but it will contribute to the solution.

      3
      Consider topical creams to that tighten the surface of the skin or the connective tissue beneath the skin. Amino acids, seaweed and ginkgo-biloba extracts all act as skin tighteners. Look for one or more of these ingredients on different anti-cellulite products.

      4
      Consider topical creams that shrink fat cells. Caffeine is the most common ingredient in these products and acts as a dehydrator. When these products work, they usually work immediately.

      5
      Splurge on endermologie, an outpatient procedure that involves suction massage to even out the skin. Multiple treatments are required over several months at a significant cost per treatment. Follow-up treatments are also required to maintain results.

      6
      Try mesotherapy to eliminate localized pockets of fat causing cellulite. Mesotherapy is series of several outpatient procedures in which injections are administered to breakdown fat cells for good. Used in Europe and South America for quite a while, it is now being offered in the U.S. by select plastic surgeons.

      7
      Research laser treatments to strengthen connective tissue beneath the skin. New procedures are being developed to use lasers to target cellulite, though there is some dispute over their effectiveness.

  24. QUESTION:
    Is it true about your colon?
    Is it true that your colon has pounds and pounds of waste stuck inside it?? I heard this on an infomercial where they were talking about the benefits of cleaning your colon.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, your intestinal area is about the size of a medium sized parking lot. It is not a smooth pipe, but contains lots of nooks and crannies. John Wayne was the most notable example of gross negligence toward his colon. When he died, they found 70 pounds of fecal matter in lodged in his intestines during an autopsy.

      Cleaning your colon must be done properly or it will cause many other problems. Those info commercials are NOT the place to buy products or learn about proper colon cleansing. There is a specific process of up regulating your cellular energy before any detoxing should be attempted. Additionally, it should be done gently, not some colonic or fast acting product you buy off the T.V.

      It is true that a good colon cleanse is important to do and one way to lose about 10 to 15 pounds. It should take about 4 months to do. See a Certified Nutritional Therapist for help on this.

      good luck to you

  25. QUESTION:
    What do I do about blackheads?
    Is it true that you can sit your face over a pot of boiling water and your blackheads will go away? Sounds kinda weird, but I have a few on my nose and I want to get rid of them. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Bri

      Here are some real answers on skin conditions. Remedies at the bottom. Cleansing the body of toxins is the key. Especially a colon cleanse! Educate yourself on detoxifying the blood.

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath. When our skin is unhealthy it is usually a reflection of the internal state of our bodies, and is often a sign of poor elimination of toxins and waste products. Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, rosacea, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body's first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems."

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body's overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin."

  27. QUESTION:
    What kind of pimples are these?
    I had a pimple on next to my lip which was a skin colored bump, not red, which i get in clusters on my chin and jawline. Also, when i put pressure on them, a coil of thick puss comes out. When i popped this particular pimple, it got really large and then a few days later, I now have a red open sore that leaks clear fluid. Around the edges is slightly purple/brown. And the skin surrounding it is brownish/redish, scaly and dry. I'm guessing its like a regular cut now, but how can i help it heal w/o scarring? and how long with it take for a sore like this to heal? what are the best methods to make it heal in a short time span?
    I drink lots of water and i eat a lot of fruits and vegetables too. i take really good care of my body, but i still have breakouts. how long with it take my sore to heal? what can i do to speed it along in the meantime?
    Also, the sore is flat and red now (the pimple is no longer present). So its actually more like a scrape. Any suggestions?

Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath. When our skin is unhealthy it is usually a reflection of the internal state of our bodies, and is often a sign of poor elimination of toxins and waste products. Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, rosacea, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body's first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems."

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body's overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin."

      1. Fruits and Vegetables for Acne: Carrot & spinach, celery & watercress, grapefruit juices are all useful to combat acne.

      2. Unwholesome Foods: Acne, a prevalent problem among teen-aged boys would not be possible in our society if our foods were wholesome. A most sad and disgusting sight is the pus-filled pimples due to inner toxicity --- wastes trying desperately to escape through the face. This condition often turns a gentle face in the blossom of youth into a waste dump of pimples, pus and subsequent pock marks which can be prevented. The tons of acne medications and prescriptions sold annually act only on the effect of the harmful food, and not the cause of the disease, malnutrition. The traditional teenage meal, a grease burger, french fries and a milk shake or cola simply does not provide enough nourishment for anyone, let alone a boy going through puberty to adulthood.

  34. QUESTION:
    Nature Cleanse, Will it hurt my colon like colon cleansing can do?
    reading stuff on different products and this one was supposedly tested and proven to be a good cleanser, but i'm skeptical because i've read that some colon cleansers are bad for your colon. Even giving yourself and enema can be bad for it. I'd like to do a cleansing for health reasons, but i wont do it till i'm sure what's good and what isn't.

      Simple answers

      .Choose poultry and fish. Poultry and fish are important in the diet because they provide the body with great amounts of energy and protein. However, beef and pork tend to linger in the system longer than other meats. This means they can go toxic in your digestive tract as they linger.

      2.Fiber up. Introduce high-fiber food items in your diet. Fiber can act like miniature brooms that sweep away unwanted colon buildup and flush it out of your system. The more fiber you take in, the more it gets to line your digestive tract, improving your overall health.

      3.Eat fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants that act as antiseptics to any toxins that are lingering in your system. These food items also have heavy fiber content to boot, getting you colon even more cleansed.

      4. Employ a regular colon cleanse regimen. The commercial colon cleanse drinks allow you to instantly flush out all the accumulated waste products in your colon fast and efficiently. However, since it is a form of supplement, you should consider this as an option to go with the other suggested methods above. Going overboard with colon cleanse can lead to discomfort and dehydration, so try to keep this as the last option.

      These tips are great.

      But if you really want to get things sorted in no time at all then this will definitely get your body clean and fit in no time.

It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems."

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body's overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin."

      Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Fasting is the world's most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body.

    Does anyone know any good products for itchy skin?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Molly

      Here are some answers and remedies about itching.

      Cause
      Itch is caused by various germs or bacteria trying to clean the body through the pores of the skin (instead of through the kidneys and the bowels) resulting in formation of pustules or rashes accompanied by intense itching.

      Cleansing the body of toxins is the key. Especially a colon cleanse! Educate yourself on detoxifyng the blood.

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath. When our skin is unhealthy it is usually a reflection of the internal state of our bodies, and is often a sign of poor elimination of toxins and waste products. Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body's first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems."

      Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. - "Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body's overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin."

      Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Fasting is the world's most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body.

      1. Fruits and Vegetables for Acne: Carrot & spinach, celery & watercress, grapefruit juices are all useful to combat acne.

      2. Unwholesome Foods: Acne, a prevalent problem among teen-aged boys would not be possible in our society if our foods were wholesome. A most sad and disgusting sight is the pus-filled pimples due to inner toxicity --- wastes trying desperately to escape through the face. This condition often turns a gentle face in the blossom of youth into a waste dump of pimples, pus and subsequent pock marks which can be prevented. The tons of acne medications and prescriptions sold annually act only on the effect of the harmful food, and not the cause of the disease, malnutrition. The traditional teenage meal, a grease burger, french fries and a milk shake or cola simply does not provide enough nourishment for anyone, let alone a boy going through puberty to adulthood. Our highly processed foods are devoid of hormones found in fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. Must do a colon cleanse to rid of all the toxins in the body, which eventually get into the blood and cause acne and all other diseases.

      3. Cabbage: Apply a lotion of freshly prepared cabbage juice preceded, if desired, by the application of leaves. The eating of cabbage leaves or juice is also helpful.

      4. Lemon Juice: Skin problems such as acne... will often respond to a treatment of lemon juice. For blackheads rub lemon juice over them each night.

      5. Black Walnut: Externally, Black Walnut is nearly a miracle worker in cases of ...acne, dandruff, boils, itch, shingles, ringworm--we could go on, but you can see that you can use Black Walnut whenever a skin disorder appears! The tincture is an excellent first-aid remedy for wounds.

      Now here are 5 tips to lose weight fast
      5 Easy weight loss tips
      Drink Iced Water
      Two litres a day minimum. Water has to be iced as the body will burn 100 calories just heating the water to normal body temperature. Also hunger pangs are very often thirst pangs, so this will help you stop over eating.
      Add lemon to flavour if you wish and gain the added benefit of cleansing your liver at the same time.
      Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush waste quicker. When you don't drink enough water the liver needs to help the kidneys perform this function. When the liver has to help the kidneys its normal function of providing stored fat for energy is slowed down.
      Green tea
      Drink 5 cups a day. Research shows this can burn a massive 80 calories a day! It is believed the antioxidant catechins in green tea boost the metabolism and help burn fat.
      Chilli sauce & mustard
      These foods increase your calorie burning capacity by between 5 - 10% for up to 2 hours after eating. This is because they contain capsaicin which speeds the metabolism, so if you enjoy hot food your in luck!
      Low fat diary foods

      Eat Fibre
      Eating fiber foods to help keep things moving through your bowel as stated above and makes you feel full.
      The average person can lose 9-10 pounds in one year just from doubling their fiber intake aim for 25grams per day ( the average for most adults is just 8grams ) fiber rich foods include strawberries, apples, brown rice, chick peas, potatoes ( with skins ) and brown rice.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How to cleanse the liver and/or Pancreas?
    Whats a good natural remedy to cleanse the liver and pancreas?

    • ANSWER:
      This page outlines the basic Liver Cleansing. This section contains eight pages of details related to the Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse. We hope you find this information useful.
      It is quite impossible to achieve complete health without having a clean body. If you want to build health and sustain it, the body must be made able to feed itself and remove its own wastes. This starts with a liver cleanse. When the liver is functioning it will clean the body at the cellular level provided that one eats good foods on a regular basis. At this point the food itself becomes a constant remedy. Eliminating the need for excessive supplementation.
      The Basic Ingredients needed for a successful Liver Gallbladder Cleanse or Flush:

      2-4 quarts of Organic Apple Juice
      6-12 fresh Organic Lemons
      A 16 ounce bottle of Extra virgin Olive oil, or Walnut oil which is much more palatable and just as effective.
      1 bottle of Digestorum or enough Paracelsus Elixir on hand to last for two or more weeks.

  2. QUESTION:
    how to cleanse your liver without pills?
    I want to try a nice liver cleanse, but I'd really like to avoid taking any pills... is there something else I can do? A one-week diet where I eat--this will sound stupid--liver-cleansing foods? :D I'm willing to do anything that doesn't include taking more pills or anything artificial.
    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Heather -
      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, raw nuts, vegetables,lean meats, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Lots of water ,green tea (antioxidant), and diluted fruit juices.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda. Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body. Some cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Spend your money in the produce department and your body will cleanse itself..
      Good luck.

  4. 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

  5. QUESTION:
    What kind of food or drink has diuretic properties?
    Every summer I have the tendency to retain water because of the heat. Right now, I am retaining water. If there are foods or supplements out there to help me that would be great. I can go to my doctor to get a water pill but I want to try the non-medicine way first. Thx.

    • ANSWER:
      The following foods and herbs are know to have diuretic properties:

      Celery seed (and plant)
      Parsley
      Dandelion
      Juniper berries
      Asparagus
      Artichoke
      Melon
      Watercress
      Other foods (common in the Western diet) also have a diuretic effect:

      Coffee
      Tea
      Coke
      Excessive animal-based protein

      Diuretic Diet Plans
      A diuretic diet plan can help to alleviate symptoms of PMS - such as bloating and headaches.

      Aim to eat small amounts of starchy carbohydrates (such as breads, rice, etc).
      Avoid salt and salty food products.
      Drink plenty of water and herbal teas.
      See herbs above.
      Avoid sugary foods.
      Eat fruit and vegetables.

      Natural diuretic
      More and more people are resorting to natural foods and herbs that exhibit diuretic properties instead of diuretic pills. Moderation is the watchword even in the case of natural diuretics. Natural diuretics can aid in removal of excess fluids from the body and aid in treating of sciatica, kidney stone, lymphatic swelling, PMS, gonorrhea, liver disorders and high blood pressure.

      Green tea is a natural diuretic food that has been in use for centuries in China.
      Consumption of cranberry juice can aid in removal of excess fluid retention.
      Apple cider vinegar exhibits natural diuretic properties and in addition maintains the potassium levels. It can be added to the salad dressing.
      Dandelion is often used as a natural diuretic.
      Nettle has natural diuretic properties that facilitate good cleansing.
      Dandelion leaf tea aids in detoxification and has a beneficial effect on those suffering from cystitis and urinary tract infections.
      Fennel has carminative and diuretic properties and is frequently used in seasoning food.

      Diuretic food
      Natural foods with high water content such as watermelons and cucumbers help increase urination and better flushing out of toxins. Cucumbers are rich in sulfur and silicon that stimulate the kidneys into better removal of uric acid. Watercress and artichokes are also natural diuretic foods.

      Asparagus contains asparigine - a chemical alkaloid that boosts kidney performance, thereby improving waste removal from the body.

      Brussel Spouts help in stimulating the kidneys and pancreas. This helps in better cleansing of cells.

      Beets are natural diuretic foods that attack floating body fats and fatty deposits.

      Oats contain silica - a natural diuretic.

      Cabbage is known to aid breakage of fatty deposits, especially around the abdominal region.

      Carrots are a rich source of carotene that speeds the metabolic rate of the body and hastens removal of fat deposits and waste.

      Lettuce aids better metabolism and flushing of toxins.

      Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C that aid the metabolism and release of water from the kidney to flush out waste.

      Other than the other excellent properties that Garlic possesses, it is a natural diuretic food that aids breakage of fat. Horseradish, raw onions and radish speed up your metabolism.

      Good luck xx

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the best liver detox for someone with HCV x 20 years?
    I'd like to know if there's a way to rid my liver of the effects of alcohol when I go out and have a few drinks.

    • ANSWER:
      The medi-nerds are out in force I see here promoting their ignorance of detoxing. "Beware of detox scams?" Beware of ANTI-DETOX people. A liver gallbladder flush works wonders for the body and I have lots of people that I have helped with doing this type of cleanse. To say you can't detox the body is so ridiculous and only showing great ignorance.

      John Hopkins researchers found intrahepatic gallstones in livers that are causing lots of problems for people. Typical medical diagnostics do not show these stones because they look like ordinary bile when using these tests. Autopsies were used to examine livers, etc. in the studies done by John Hopkins researchers. To remove these stones and gallstones is a very popular DETOXING flush that does remove the stones. I'm always anxious to hear from patients I put on this form of detoxing because the amount of stones that come out and the sizes are always shocking to these people. What I find is that many of these people take jars of their stones to show their doctors that lied to them, telling them detoxing does not work.

      It takes several flushes to totally clean these organs, but the results are incredible. The skin becomes vibrant, the liver starts cleansing the blood better, producing better bile and all the health benefits are marvelous.

      To prevent the problems with alcohol on the liver, you can take digestive enzymes that include all the pancreatic enzymes before drinking. You will not get a hangover the next day. Also, go to the health food store and purchase some prickly pear herbs and take those before going out.

      A little alcohol will not hurt the average person, but excessive drinking will damage the liver and cause a huge build up of the intrahepatic gallstones that crate fatty livers.

      The milk thistle herb will only have a very minor effect on the health of the liver, but it certainly won't hurt it either. Just don't expect great results from taking it.

      good luck to you

  7. QUESTION:
    How do you cleanse you liver and keep it clean?
    I read that consuming certain foods can cause a buildup called "fatty liver" and that when you have this is slows down you fat burning metabolism. So I want to know how to make sure your liver is clean, which foods to eat and which to avoid etc.
    I do work out daily, and I eat healthy most of the time.

    • ANSWER:
      Going to quote you real fast:

      "I read that consuming certain foods can cause a buildup called "fatty liver" and that when you have this is slows down you fat burning metabolism."

      It's actually far more complicated than that. I'm not going to go into everything here, but there are plenty of ways people burden their livers and destroy their organs -- much of the time willingly.

      To "cleanse the liver," there's only two things you can do:

      1: Stop burdening the liver.
      --- Typically this step involves doing >less.< Eat less, for example. Suck in less car exhaust, drink less cola, wash your hands less, shower less, etc. There are too many things to talk about here, so I'll just leave you with that and move on.

      2: Resupply your liver with what it needs.
      --- This step can be a huge problem for people, because there's so much misleading information out there. In fact, most of that misleading information has "clinical trial" stamped to it and is therefor approved by the government and the masses.
      --- But whatever -- they'll do what they want. I'll tell you the truth: In some way, you need to get just about every basal element into your body, all in different amounts. Magnesium, for example -- or zinc, or molybdenum, or hydrogen, or strontium.
      --- The liver needs many different materials to make tools with. If it can't make its tools, it can't repair itself or deal with the load its obligated to take on. You can cleanse you heart out with herbs and water and all sorts of things, but your liver will never be healthy without the elements it needs. This goes for the entire body.

      So, start researching, but lookout for the liars. Apparently you want to lose weight, which is fine, but be more concerned about your body as an organism. Go on a fast using pure, filtered water or deep-ground well water (get it analyzed), and remineralize it with dark sea salt ("dark" meaning the darkest in color you can find), sea water, or concentrated sea water (w/ or w/o sodium removed). Doing just that, you can expect to healthily lose five to twenty pounds a week, depending of course on how much weight there is to lose and what your body's condition is at the time.

      Hope this helped.

      EDIT: "Cleanse your heart out" was meant figuratively.

  8. 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.

  9. QUESTION:
    What foods are better for digestive health?
    My stomach is often upset and rather than trying to avoid certain foods (because there seem to be so many of them that it is impossible to identify them all) I am curious to know if there are any foods that are supposed to be good for over-all digestive health, and if so, what are they? I know about yogurt already but is there anything else? Also are there any vitamins that are particularly helpful with this?

    (I'm a vegetarian, by the way, but I eat cheese, fish & eggs.)

    • ANSWER:
      For Better Digestion Follow this:

      1. Every morning before breakfast, freshly squeeze the juice of 1 - 2 lemons in 250ml - 500ml of spring or filtered water. This small but effective daily routine will help to cleanse the stomach of left over 'debris' and remove any excess acid.

      2. Another daily drink taken late morning or sometime before lunch will complement the cleanse in 'Tip 1' . This can include 1tsp - 1 tbsp of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with 250ml - 500ml apple juice (freshly squeezed is even better). This drink will balance digestive juices, specifically for low or high levels of Hydrochloric acid (HCl).

      3. Avoid cold drinks while eating. Food is digested more efficiently at around body temperature, therefore cold fluid can slow down the digestive processes. If you must drink while eating, try hot water or herbal teas. Caffeine can cause excess production of HCl so should be avoided, as should alcohol.

      4. Have you ever heard of Swedish Bitters? The taste of bitter herbs, foods, juices etc, 20 - 30mins before eating will increase digestive function by encouraging the release of digestive enzymes, juices and acids.

      5. Specific self massage and exercise techniques used as part of a daily routine will also contribute to better digestion.

      'LIVER EXERCISE' - This exercise massages the Liver and Gall Bladder, tonifying and cleansing these organs. It helps cope with abdominal wind, and assists digestion. Place the heel of the right hand on the right side of the body under the rib cage, and just above the hip bone. The fingers should point straight across the body. Pressing firmly, move the hand slowly across the body to the middle of the abdomen; you should end up with the heel of the hand over the navel. Repeat this action 10-20 times.

      'STOMACH EXERCISE' - This exercise is similar to the Liver Exercise, but is applied to the other side of the body. It benefits the digestion, the Spleen, and the Pancreas, as well as the Stomach. Method: Place the heel of the left hand between the rib cage and the left hip, with the fingers pointing across the body. Move the hand firmly and smoothly across to the centre of the body, until it is over the navel. Repeat 10-20 times.

      6. Short term fasting is one way to allow the digestive system a well deserved break. However "first time fasters"should try it for a maximum of 24hrs.

      Remember always to drink plenty of fruit and vegetable juice during your fast. Also plan your fasting for days when you will not be doing lots of hard physical work and can take plenty of rest.

      7. CHEW, CHEW, CHEW... One of the most important mechanisms of digestion, yet more often than not, the most forgotten!

      Chewing is the first stage of digestion. It not only physically breaks down foods, but signals the organs to secrete their digestive juices (pancreatic enzymes, stomach acids etc) in order to prepare for the incoming foods.

      Naturopaths believe that you should try to chew your food until it is near to a liquid consistency.

      8. 'Food Combining' can work well for many people. There are
      books available which explain the reasons for food combining, for
      example, 'The Hay Diet Made Easy: A Practical Guide to Food
      Combining' by Jackie & Alexandra Habgood. 'Food Combining' is not only for weight loss but can assist problems due to an imbalanced digestive system.

      Briefly, food combining involves the 3 main types of food/fuel i.e. Carbohydrates (bread, potatoes, rice), Proteins (meats, dairy, nuts, soya) and Fats (cooking oils, avocados). It is considered that one should not mix these types of food within one particular meal. For example, eat either carbohydrates alone or proteins alone, together with (non starchy) vegetables or salad.

      9. Colon Cleansing & Liver Cleansing through the use of herbs, foods and supplements will benefit the whole digestive system greatly. There are many companies and practitioners (Naturopathic) who recommend their own cleansing routines and you will find that many elements of the various routines will be similar.

      Any method is good if it does the job! Colon Cleansing & Liver Cleansing are two of the most popular approaches to getting started with detox, and detox benefits every part of the body by helping the body remove toxins which otherwise slow down every organ and every body function. Counteract this tendency by using Colon Cleansing & Liver Cleansing.

      10. Here are some herbs known to help with excess digestive juices & acids in conditions such as Hiatus Hernia and Stomach Ulcers: For example a great digestive tea can be made by comgined the excellent herbs Meadowsweet, Fennel, Comfrey and Peppermint.

      Slippery Elm Tea is a very soothing herbal tea, with a consistency like thin porridge. It is blended with water and drunk hot. Slippery Elm is also available in capsules as Slippery Elm Capsules, if you prefer this. Slippery Elm is a fantastic herb to soothe the bowel if there is IBS or Colitis.

      Bayberry and Wild Yam can also be used in drops (tincture or fluid extract) or as capsules or tablets. These herbs will help to soothe and heal an ulcerated or 'colicky' type of condition. Wild Yam is a great antispasmodic - it relaxes muscles in spasm. It is particularly helpful for the liver and also the bowel. It is also used by women to relax the uterus which can relieve pain during periods or menopause.

      Digestive Capsules or Drops are available as well as teas. Generally, take these for 3-4 months for a course, though you should start to see benefits - eg reduced indigestion - after 2-3 weeks. If not, see a herbalist for advice. Licorice Tea is made in the same way as Ginger Tea.

      Cardamom, Cloves, Fennel, Ginger and Cinnamon can all be made into a tea to be drunk after a meal. Simply place some seeds in half a pint or so of water in a non-aluminium pan. Bring to a gentle simmer and let simmer for a few minutes. Strain and drink. If using fresh ginger, cut a few slices (a few mm thick) and do the same.

      Foods such as Lemons, Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic, Onion, Leek, Rice, Root Vegetables, Papaya, Pineapple and Artichokes can all aid proper digestion. Try to include some of these foods into your general daily diet.

      Good Luck! I hope this helps!

  10. QUESTION:
    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.

  11. 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!! >.<

    • 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 whether you are attempting weight loss or just trying to "cleanse". The average adult 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. Plus the weight of the lost glycogen stores, excess sodium and associated water. This can add up to 15-20 lbs depending on your build. 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. And sadly metabolism actually drops.
      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.
      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!
      A healthy 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.

  12. QUESTION:
    How long does it take your liver to detox?
    I've been unhealthy for a while now. I eat fast food, take sleep aids, and drink alcohol on a regular basis.
    Bottom line, my liver isn't in peak condition.

    My question is how long does it take the liver to naturally cleanse itself? Does the length of an unhealthy lifestyle complicate the process?

    • ANSWER:
      You've been sucked into a bunch of garbage pseudoscience. Your liver is constantly detoxifying the substances you put into it. Within a few hours of consuming alcohol, your liver has broken it down to harmless compounds and prepared it for excretion from the body.
      Stop thinking in terms of "cleansing" the body. You've been abusing your body with this disgusting lifestyle, but that doesn't mean that you're "dirty," only that your body is overworked and run-down.

  14. QUESTION:
    How to clean out your liver and kidneys?
    So I heard this is the first tip to start losing weight.. What foods and drink will do that?

    • ANSWER:
      You don't need to clean or cleanse them. Both the kidneys and the liver are part of the body's own filtering and cleansing system, and they do a wonderful job in the average, healthy person. The kidneys filter out waste and excrete this in urine, and the liver metabolises drugs and alcohol, amongst other things.

      Just keep up your water intake, as this will make the filtering and excreting of waste more efficient.

  15. QUESTION:
    How many days is it safe to fast from food?
    I am an emotional eater who has 2 basic levels, either can stay away from food completely, or binge. I have found fasting for a few days a week has really helped me gain control of myself, and then can eat healthy for several days afterward, but then bad cycle begins again, so I've started fasting weekly to keep the control. but am wondering howmany days can you do it safely.My deductible on health insurance is too high to try to see dr to ask. My stats are female age 41, weight 340 lbs, have lost 25 in past 3 months. no known health problems yet(the blood pressure cuff at walmart I check all the time and I am in the good range, amazing for someone at my weight). For physical activity I have a office job so I sit alot, but do regular housekeeping stuff and take care of family, don't sit on butt and watch tv all night. Do yard work on weekends and have a 2nd job 1 day a week that is driving. Walk about 3 times a week for a mile but not on days I am fasting.

    • ANSWER:
      There is nothing wrong at all with fasting,especially if it helps you gain control of your eating problem. Here's an excerpt from a really good book I read, and the website below has great advice. Jesus Christ fasted as documented in the Bible, it wouldn't be there if as His example if it were bad for us.
      Fasting can break many food addictions, such as coffee, sweets, alcohol, smoke and other bad habits
      The natural process of toxin excretion continues, while the influx of new toxins is reduced, This results in a reduction of total body toxicity.
      • The energy usually used for digestion is redirected to immune function, cell growth, and eliminatory processes.
      • The immune system’s workload is greatly reduced, and the digestive tract is spared any inflammation due to allergic reactions to food.
      • Due to a lowering of serum fats that thins the blood; tissue oxygenation is increased and white blood cells are moved more efficiently.
      • Fat-stored chemicals, such as pesticides and drugs, are released.
      • Physical awareness and sensitivity to diet and surroundings are increased.
      Due to these effects of fasting, a fast can help you heal with greater speed,’ cleanse your liver, kidneys, and colon,’ purify your blood,’ help you lose excess weight and water,’ flush out toxins,. clear the eyes and tongue,’ and cleanse the breath."

  16. QUESTION:
    What treatments are there for liver failure?
    I am doing research on liver failure in people who overdose on acetaminophen. I was hoping I might find out what some of the treatments are, how long the person has to live without treatment, and what some of the signs and symptoms are.

    • ANSWER:
      HI Pepto

      DO you mean like a disease like cirrhosis? These methods here will heal the issue and all other kinds of internal problems.

      Cause
      Liver function can be impaired by a toxic bowel. Most pharmaceutical drugs, if taken on a consistent basis, can also cause liver disease. If you are on such medications, be sure to have your liver function monitored regularly (every 3-6 months) by your physician, and consider other healing alternatives that might reduce or eliminate your need for medications.

      Aromatherapy: Juniper, rosemary, and rose essential oils can all help stimulate liver function.

      Detoxification: Liver function can also be impaired by a toxic bowel. For this reason, bowel cleansing and rejuvenation techniques may be very important. In severe cases, repeat the bowel cleanse once a month, or as needed, and stay on bowel nutrients for up to one year depending on the severity of your condition and your response to treatment.

      Diet: Diet is extremely important in preventing and reversing all forms of liver disease, including cirrhosis. Eat a low-protein, whole foods diet of organic foods, including seeds, nuts, whole grains, beans, nuts, and goat or rice milk, and also eat plenty of leafy green vegetables. Avoid all alcohol and processed fats such as margarine, hydrogenated oils, and foods with these oils added, rancid oils, and hardened vegetable fats. Instead, use cold-processed oils such as olive. Also increase your consumption of foods high in amino acids and potassium, such as nuts, seeds, bananas, raisins, rice, wheat bran, kelp, dulse, brewer`s yeast, and molasses, and drink plenty of pure, filtered water. Avoid animal protein as well as raw or undercooked fish, and limit your overall intake of fish.

      Also avoid all stressors on the liver, such as overeating, drugs of any kind, a highly processed diet (especially one high in processed fats, additives and preservatives), and foods high in animal protein, and accumulation of toxins from chemicals that have to be processed by the liver such as alcohol, drugs, acetaminophen, insecticides, and chemicals from rancid and processed oils. Toxins from Candida yeast organisms within the body can also contribute to liver stress, as can the use of contraceptives.

      Herbs: Milk thistle is an excellent herb to help in the treatment of cirrhosis because it helps liver cells regenerate. It may be taken in the form of tablets or the non-alcohol extract called a glycerate. The dose is based upon the content of silymarin (the active ingredient of milk thistle) and so standardized extracts are preferable. The typical dosage range is 70-200 mg of silymarin daily. The herb Picrorhiza kurroa is not as well-known as milk thistle, but may have similar effects. Licorice can also be helpful. The Chinese herb bupleurum (chai-hu) may also be helpful, as can the herbal mixture of kutki (200 mg), shanka pushpi (500 mg), and guduchi (300 mg), with is used by practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine to boost liver function. Take 1/4 teaspoon of this mixture taken twice a day, after lunch and dinner, with aloe vera juice.

      Juice Therapy: The following juices can help the liver eliminate toxins that cause stress on it: beet and carrot juice and wheat grass juice. To either juice, you can add raw flaxseed oil and garlic as tolerated.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Lipotrophic factor nutrients are essential for aiding liver function. These include vitamin C, vitamin E, silymarin, lipoic acid, and raw liver tablets. Other useful nutrients in this regard include vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, folic acid, niacin (in small doses such as 10-30 mg. three times), liver glandulars, digestive enzymes with hydrochloric acid (HCL) and ox bile extract, and the amino acids L-methionine, L-carnitine, L-cysteine, L-glutathione, and L-arginine.

      Caution: For all cases of liver disease, do not use more than 10,000 IU of vitamin A daily and avoid cod liver oil entirely.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of cirrhosis: Acupuncture, Cell Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Reflexology, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

  17. QUESTION:
    What are some good foods and drinks to help boost one's immune system?
    And what exactly is in those foods and drinks that make them so good for the immune system?

    • ANSWER:
      I applaud you in your interest in strengthening your immune system with food. As you may know, it is a challenge today to find foods that are mineral rich without added chemicals that are toxic.
      The good news is it is possible to find healthy foods that are rich in vitamins, mineral, photonutrients, ect. for you body.

      A place to start is looking for raw and organically grown fruits, vegetables, and meats.

      Here is a sampling.
      Vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, collard greens, and spinach are the great source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber,

      Fruits (like blueberries, bananas , acai,and mangoes.) are good sources of antioxidants and phytonutrients

      Proteins containing amino acids aids in the growth and repair of your immune system. Some protein sources can be chlorella , eggs, organic meat and poultry, fish especially those high in Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, trout and tuna.

      Medicinal Mushrooms such as Shiitake, Reishi, Maitake, and Coriolus Versicolor (turkey tail) are wonderful for building your immune system up.

      Drinks like Wheatgrass, Aloe vera juice, green tea, and white teas are excellent drink choices to boost your immune system. Holy tea is my favorite, since it also does a great job in cleansing my body and maintaining a healthy weight.

      Whole grains like brown rice, millet, buckwheat, oats, and barley are also a valuable source of the vitamins, minerals and fiber that are an essential part of keeping the immune system healthy. Fiber helps cleanse the colon of toxins and helps prevent intestinal infections.

      It is also important to avoid "bad" foods ("unprocessed" and "unrefined") that will weaken your immune system.

      Here is some suggestions:
      Sugar contains no nutrients. Excessive sugar intake can deplete your body of several vitamins and minerals. Sugar impairs the ability of white blood cells to sweep up and kill bacteria. It also robs the body of key nutrients such as zinc that is vital for the immune function. Sugars food to avoid include soda pop, candy, many cereals, and ice cream.

      Coffee
      Caffeine is a diuretic that contributes to the body's loss of important nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The acid in coffee eats away the villi of the small intestine, reducing their effectiveness in supporting nutrient assimilation.

      Alcohol (when consumed in excess), is a poison to every system of your body. It depresses the nervous system, inhibits the bone marrow's ability to regenerate blood cells, is toxic to the liver, depletes B-vitamins, and is dehydrating.

      Raw foods such as clams, oysters, sushi, very rare meats, and undercooked eggs contain infectious bacteria and intestinal parasites.

      With the advent of pesticides, herbicides, artificial fertilizer and green harvesting, our fruits and vegetables lack vital nutrients. Today, it is necessary that our diet will need supplements to the food for the immune system.

      For more info on supplements or other ways to strengthen your immune system without food, go to website in source box.

  18. QUESTION:
    Are there any foods that look like the liver, and are good for the liver?
    For example..
    If you slice a carrot it can look like an eye.. carrots are good for your eyes.
    Walnuts are good for your brain and so is cauliflower and they both look like a brain.
    A tomato cut in half can resemble a heart
    kidney beans look like..kidneys
    celery looks like bones
    sweet potato looks like a Pancreas.

    All these things are good for the specific body parts.

    Are there any foods that look like liver and are good for the liver?
    BTW its an art related thing.
    the point is that the object isn't a liver..representing a liver..but is good for it.

    Also celery is high in calcium..which is good for your bones.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there is a food which has almost the same nutritious value like folate, potassium, magnesium, protein etc as in liver of animals is beet or beetroot and if you choose well,you can find the shape of the beet and cut into half, it looks like a liver. Also, beet has one of the best blood cleansing properties too and the only veggies has those natural red color resembling blood *

  19. 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

  20. QUESTION:
    What is a liver cleanse that you have actually used?
    A doctor told me I need to do a liver cleanse. Is there one that you have actually used? How long did it take? Did you have to be close to a bathroom for more than 24 hours? I have a few weeks to figure out how to do this until I see him again.
    Oh, the doctor didn't say to just do one right away. It has to wait a few more weeks. I just want to know what to expect, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      At Shoppers Drug Mart (Canadian) I did a detox of the liver colon and kidneys called triotox. its a 100% herbal cleanse and it was really easy -3 pills 3 x a day for 14 days with food and a multi vitamin. I could really feel the benefit right away. You will feel slightly sick for a while but that is because your body is adjusting to the cleanse. Drink about 8-10 glasses of water a day while on it or the cleanse will not work so great. Also I found herbal tyea to be stimuolating. I went to the bathroom a slight bit more than usual but it wasnt so bad. just one or 2 extra trips in the night.

      Good luck.

  21. QUESTION:
    Can you recommend a cleanse that works quickly to remove sludge from body?
    I tried the master cleanse and did not work, still very constipated after doing 2 salt water flushes and then felt VERY ill.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      I have been in this business for quite a few years and have helped people with chronic ailments. I helped a young woman who had not been to the bathroom for 5 days and who had had a MIR Scan on the Monday and by Friday had still not managed to eliminate. I, on meeting her had commented on the color in her face and she proceeded to tell me her story. I told her to visit my home that afternoon and gave her three of the products that I thought would help her condition, namely Herbal Fiberblend, Composure and Herbal Release.

      She went to the bathroom after only one and a half hours and I do believe that the same three products will help you too. I would like you to go to my website www.healthywithaim.com and look at the four videos, I have listed below. All these products can be taken at the same time, but not with meals --- half an hour later or before, will be fine. The fourth product that I have listed below is Para 90. This will be for a parasite cleanse. The reason I am giving you a few products to take is that I want it to work speedily for you. They are all safe to take and I use the products myself and am always so thrilled at the results.

      Check these articles out:
      http://www.healthywithaim.com/aim-articles/38-nutrition-and-performance/108-article-leadersedge-parasites.html
      http://www.healthywithaim.com/aim-articles/39-nutrition/166-article-hfb.html

      The Herbal Fiberblend gently opens the colon as the gel within the product swells up, to make way for the movement. Remember to drink plenty of water when taking the products, at least 6 glasses throughout the day and also rest, VERY IMPORTANT. Each of the 17 herbs have a specific function. This product is also a food and cleanses the other organs, namely, liver, kidneys, pancreas, once it has cleansed the colon.

      All these products can be ordered by going to the "ORDER AIM" on my website. In order to get the AIM products at wholesale prices, you will need to become an AIM Member. AIM membership is Free, when you purchase products with a BVP value of 50 points. Delivery is free when the order is a certain amount and can be collected the following day at your nearest Post Office. You will be buying these products at wholesale prices, if you follow the instructions.

      Would love to hear your testimony!!

  22. QUESTION:
    How can I do I liver cleanse without the apple/olive oil mix?
    I want to do a liver cleanse but I don't want to do that extreme apple/olive oil lemon juice mixture.

    Is there a way that I can do it with eating certain foods a certain way, slowly over time?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, there are many other ways to heal your liver, such as herbs like milk thistle or specially formulated liver supplements. Livatrex can help you painlessly pass stones like a liver flush with olive oil and lemon juice, but less dramatic.

      Also there is a liver flush that uses eggs, limes, and oil but is really mild. Some people have success with that.

      Changing your diet will help - healthy fats, cruciferous vegetables, whole grains, limiting sugar, eliminating bad fats. Karen Hurd has a protocol of eating legumes to decongest the liver. Just eating a lot of apples will help, one or two daily. The tart ones are best like Jonathan or Granny Smith.

      Daily lemon water also cleanses the liver and kidneys and is easy to add on to whatever you decide.

  23. QUESTION:
    How can I do a cheap colon cleanse?
    I want to do a colon cleanse, but the stuff on the market is way out of my budget. If I just do some psyllium capsules and some pro-biotics (like acidophilus), will that work just as well as the expensive stuff like Evercleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Forget the colon cleanse. Your colon is clean. Detox is an alt med scam and can be dangerous.

      TV show, "What's Good For You" recently tested detox products.

      Results:

      Weight loss. One member of the detox group dropped out on day four as she was experiencing dizziness, headaches and nausea. In this time she lost almost 3kgs. The two other members of the detox group lasted the week — and lost 2.5kg and 4kg each. Our expert, Associate Professor Katherine Samaras of the Garvan Institute, believes the weight loss will be put straight back on. Plus the diet may have also altered the detoxers' metabolisms making it more difficult for them to lose weight in the future.

      Blood tests. The blood tests showed decreased liver function in all members of the detox group. Their livers were shocked by the strict diet and weren't functioning very well. The blood tests also showed an increase in triglycerides (the bad blood fats that predict our risk to heart disease) and a decrease in the protective cholesterol.

      Conclusion
      Within our group of six people the liquid detox diet did not help the body eliminate toxins. In fact, the diet did them more harm than good! The body is fantastically designed to eliminate by-products without needing any assistance at all. If you have overindulged Professor Samaras recommends a light healthy diet for one or two days to let your body recover.

      From Skepdic.com:
      It's an irrational concept, yet an intriguing idea, that modern life so fills us with poisons from polluted air and food additives that we need to be periodically "cleaned out" ("detoxified"). Never mind that natural chemicals in our foods are thousands of times more potent than additives, or that most Americans are healthier, live longer, and can choose from the most healthful food supply ever available. -- Frances M. Berg, M.S.

      Real detoxification of foreign substances takes place in the liver, which modifies their chemical structure so they can be excreted by the kidneys which filter them from the blood into the urine. --Stephen Barrett, M.D.

      "Toxin" is classic pseudoscience terminology. --Ben Goldacre, M.D.

      "...these detox programs amount to a large quantity of excrement, both literally and figuratively.” --Peter Pressman, M.D.

  24. QUESTION:
    Can I include dairy in a raw food cleanse?
    I'm doing a 21 raw food cleanse with my husband for his fatty liver.

    However, since I'm pregnant, I'm going to also eat dairy such as greek yogurt and milk. Would that be okay for him too?

    I know raw milk is okay, but you can't get it in Canada.

    • ANSWER:
      You probably should let your husband go on the cleanse and do it right. A liver cleanse while pregnant might be dangerous. You should sit this one out.

  25. QUESTION:
    Would a liver cleanse as well as a colon cleanse take away any cravings for sugar?
    I was wondering with any cleanse would it take away any cravings for junk food.

    If so I was going to do one this weekend but I would like to know health perspectives of others!

    • ANSWER:
      There is no therapeutic effect to any colon cleanse or liver cleanse regimen. This is all a marketing ploy. I am a nurse and I work in the Gastroenterology Field. Any Gastro doctor will tell you it's a waste of time and money.

  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:
    What is the best body cleanse to lose those last few pounds?
    So I am a month away from a vacation and I want to lose those last few pounds. I work out 6 days a week (not crazy though 3 hard days mixed with easy days and yoga) , I have a balanced diet, protein shakes, and take vitamins. I want to do it in a healthy way but I wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion for a good cleanse. Thank you!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
      There is no "build up" of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
      Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with "mucoid plaque", we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
      We "cleanse and detox" 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.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      A high fiber diet works every time.
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.

  28. QUESTION:
    what does it mean when ur liver enzymes are extremely high?
    i need help.i went 2 the docters twice and they said my liver enzyms are high what does it mean?could it be harmfull and what do i do 2 lower it.

    • ANSWER:
      The liver enzymes are known as ALT and AST. You
      can read about them here:
      http://www.labtestsonline.org

      These enzymes could be elevated if you drink alcohol;
      are taking certain medications; are coming in contact
      with chemicals; have developed a virus in your body;
      or the tube like structures that lead from the liver, known
      as ducts, become blocked..malformed...or twisted.
      It can even be caused by hereditary conditions also.

      The ALT enzyme is made in the liver and pertain mostly
      to the liver, the AST is made in the liver but also other
      organs as well. Alk Phos is an enzyme that can be
      elevated if the bile ducts have a problem.
      These enzymes are stored inside the liver cell...if the cell becomes damaged, they are released.
      When liver cell damage occurs, the liver may have
      inflammation. This can be treated and the cells and liver
      can heal. However, if it isn't treated, this will eventually
      lead to death of the liver cells...known as cirrhosis.
      You can read more about it here:
      http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cirrhosis/DS00373

      There are usually two sets of tests the doctors do:
      the liver enzymes to see if there is potential damage and
      liver function tests to see if the liver is able to perform
      the function it usually does to help the body be healthy.
      Other tests are done if they think you contacted a virus:
      like Hep A,B, or C.

      You asked what you can do: this may pertain to you or
      it may not.
      (1)Don't drink alcohol. Alcohol is the number one reason
      for liver damage.
      (2)Don't take any medications except what the doctor authorizes. Many medications, over the
      counter, herbs, herbal teas, are hard on the liver. Be sure
      to tell the doctor about these and any other medications
      that are being prescribed to you by other doctors.
      Most medications go through the liver first,when they
      enter the body, to be processed.
      (3) If you are gaining weight, try to lose some...some people
      develop fatty livers.
      (4)Stay away from chemicals, like carbon tetrachloride.
      (5)Try to stay clear of others who are sick...your body may be trying to heal and you don't want an added strain on it right now. Use hand cleaners when you cannot wash your hands after touching things others have touched. Or that they may
      blow on, like a child blowing out birthday candles.
      (6)Eat well and eat foods that give your body
      all the nourishment, vitamins, and minerals it needs.
      Only take vitamin and mineral supplements if your doctor
      recommends them. Wash all foods others handle, like
      fresh fruits and stay clear of communal foods, like salad
      bars and things people take second dips into for chips,
      crackers, etc.
      (7)Try to rest as much as possible to help your body heal better.
      (8)Stay away from fast fix formulas that say they help the liver...it may cause more harm...like liver cleanses.

      http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/cirrhosis/

      It all depends on what your tests results are revealing to
      the doctor. I have been addressing this through a liver diagnoses view point.

  29. QUESTION:
    What are good foods to eat to help with acne ?
    i want to go on an acne diet but what are good foods to help clear your acne please help thanks !

    • ANSWER:
      1. Olive oil:

      Olive oil provides good fats that our bodies need. Oils like olive oil and sesame oil have essential fat acids that are required for good health. These nourish our skin from the inside out.

      2. Green tea:

      Rich in a chemical called catechins which is an anti-inflammatory. It helps prevent acne as well as reduce the signs of aging.

      3. Seeds and Nuts:

      Seeds and nuts are rich in Omega 3 oils. These oils are also found in oily fish like salmon, and in flaxseed oil. Omega 3 oils are a powerful antioxidant which help the skin remain supple.

      4. Lemon water:

      Lemon water helps to stimulate and detoxify the liver and expel fat deposits. It also helps your body to produce more enzymes in the liver to help with detoxification. Because the liver helps remove toxins from your body, it can not remove toxins which are pushed through your skin. This means those toxins become prime breeding grounds for bacteria that cause acne. In order to survive acne causing bacteria need specific conditions to breed, those are areas with low oxygen and high acid levels. The minerals in lemons help offset the acid pockets that can form in our skin.

      5. Garlic:

      Garlic helps to lower our bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol, called HDL. It also helps reduce toxins like lemon water does. So by reducing the toxins, we lessen the possibility of providing the required breeding grounds for acne.

      6. Watermelon:

      As odd as it might sound, the pulp of watermelon is a good exfoliate. Taking that in mind some people will rub the their face with the rinds of the watermelon which is also high in vitamins A, B, and C. It also contains a lot of water which helps to keep the skin properly hydrated.

      7. Water:

      Water is the most important aspect of keeping your body hydrated. Water will also help cleanse your body of the toxins that could build up. Some experts say that to determine how many ounces of water you should drink everyday, divide you body weight by 2, and that is how many ounces you should drink.

      8. Wheatgrass:

      You can find this in just about every store that carries a selection of vitamin supplements. There are numerous health benefits for wheatgrass, many of which help with preventing acne.

      9. Yogurt:

      Yogurt contains high concentrations of a good bacteria call Lactobacillus Acidophilus. This is commonly called a Probiotic. Probiotic microbes fight against infectious diseases by competing for the food and nutrients acne bacteria require to survive.

      Closely related to this category are Prebiotics. Prebiotics help re-establish good bacteria in the stomach. Examples include honey, onions, artichokes and bananas.

      10. Barley:

      Barley is high in both soluble and insoluble fibers. Soluble fiber helps the body metabolize fat, cholesterol, and carbohydrates. Insoluble fiber promotes healthy digestion; most people refer to eating insoluble fiber as "eating the roughage." Barley also contains high levels of Vitamin E which helps kill acne quickly.

  31. QUESTION:
    How do we end up with excess/increased levels of Hydrogen Peroxide in the liver?
    Through diet? I know H2O2 is produced as a by-product of lots of metabolic processes like respiration, but I'm particularly interested in how it ends up in our liver and if certain foods increase it... Any answers would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      H2O2 is from a natural purification of water through sunlight. This is the process of cleansing wastewater to a degree. Food sources would be rich in beta carotine and everything goes thru the liver by the blood. Oxygen is carried in the blood. This is a very difficult question to answer in this format. I suggest you study this on your own and how it relates to your body.

  32. QUESTION:
    Are you supposed to do a cleanse before starting slimquick?
    I'm about to start slimquick, I want to lose 10-15 pounds by June. I got the kind that comes in a blue box, it says slimquick fat burner, clinical strength. It came with a little brochure thing with sample diet and exercise plans. It also has a sample cleanse plan too, so am I supposed to do that? The directions don't say anything about a cleanse, but does it enhance or accelerate the affects?

    • ANSWER:
      I would not do Slimquick! I tried it for several months, I didn't lose much and my liver enzymes were elevated horribly with no real explanation at the time. When I stopped it for a few months and got my blood work redone my liver enzymes were fine again! Talk about a horrible scare!

      I started a new diet last Sunday (one week ago) and I'm down 10 pounds - could be mostly water weight but I'll take anything and it's working great and I'm not hungry like I thought I would be.
      I eliminated starches such as pasta, bread, potatoes and I'm only eating meats (fish/chicken), eggs, fruits, veggies and nuts. Eliminate diet sodas and sugars! This is all in Phase 1 of my new diet and then in Phase 2 you're allowed one or two meals per week that allow you to eat whatever you want such as chocolate cake or pizza... You should consult a physician before you do anything since everyone is different but eliminating trigger foods for me has been successful. I've done other programs that made you track what you ate and calculate calories - they worked but it wasn't a long-term solution. So far I'm eating better and I haven't been hungry all week. Drink water and you can have unsweetened iced tea or coffee - try to limit dairy as well. You should also eliminate a large portion of dairy as well such as a lot of cheese and heavy cream sauces.

      So far I'm loving it and I'm hopeful that this will work well for me!

  33. QUESTION:
    What is the best body cleanse geared toward weight loss?
    I am not overweight at this time but more or less, a little unhappy with the weight I have around my stomach, hips and thighs. I am going to the beach in two weeks and would like to do a cleanse to help jump start some weight loss. I have started running/walking 2 miles everyday about a week ago. I have read about a lot of different 48 hours cleanses but I need to get a better idea of what will actually work.

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Brook p

      If you are looking to lose weight, burn fat, and rid your body and your colon of harmful toxins, you may be interested in trying a colon cleanse diet. The point of this diet is to eat foods high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, in order to free your body of the toxins that enter our body during the course of the day through things like processed food, alcohol, and pollutants in the air. It is also meant to free your colon of nasty build up which contains a high concentration of toxins as well.

      When done correctly, these diets can be very helpful to your overall health. They contain foods high in nutrients, which will make you feel more energetic and alert naturally. Your overall body and mind will feel more healthy and your stress levels will go down as well.

      On top of the above benefits, these diets can help prevent sicknesses like cancer and other health problems. They will decrease your risk of heart attack, liver disease, and many other illnesses. You can help restore cells in your body and prevent any other damage from occurring.

      If you are faced with a substance abuse problem, alcohol problem, or smoking addiction, a cleansing diet may be what you need to free your body of the harmful build up of toxins in your body that keep your dependence on them going. With an alcohol problem, for example, over time the alcohol builds up in your body and your tolerance for it goes up. This means that after a while, you are forced to drink more and more to get intoxicated, which in turn causes you to put more toxins into your body, and over time the problem gets worse and worse. If you think of alcohol just as you think of any other toxin or free radical in your body, you will see how a colon cleansing diet can help you with your problem.

      So, now that you know the basics of the cleansing diet, you know that it helps you not only to free yourself of toxins and other free radicals that are roaming around in your body, but that it can help you lose weight, burn fat, and restore cells in your body as well.

  34. QUESTION:
    How much weight will i lose on the master cleanse diet?
    I want to lose some weight asap i'm considering trying the master cleanse diet but around how much would i lose?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a diet called the The Fat Flush plan by Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman. I lost 10 lbs in two weeks and I was not even following it to a tee. This doctor's diet is centered around cleaning out your liver and getting rid of the toxins so that it can process and burn calories better. Our liver is what helps us burn calories but if it is all junked up with fast food and junk food and sodas, it will not process the fat correctly, thus burn more calories.

    How much weight did you lose on the master cleanse (lemonade/maple syrup diet)?
    Hi I am starting the master cleanse on Monday, would just like to know how much weight people have lost of it, any experiences and tips?

    I do not want people to tell me not to do it am doing it anyway, I have read that I will put all weight I lose back on. I am not doing it for weight loss that is just a big bonus I am doing it to detoxify my body as I wish to turn vegan.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      I lost about 12 pounds and gained half of it back. I only did it for six days because I started to get paranoid that my body would start pulling nutrients out of my muscles and I got what I needed from it which was a clean slate. The weird thing was, and this may be kinda gross, but even though the body cleanses itself with liver, kidneys, waste, etc, I had corn coming out around the 5th day, and I hadn't eaten corn in a number of weeks. A lot of stuff, I realized, stays for awhile, so I felt that I did get flushed and did it to the point that I had nothing left to come out and that was when I stopped. The fourth day was the hardest, I reintroduced food with flavored broths and then softened veggies and it was okay. I only did the salt flush for two days because it was awful and I also did the tea but only for about four days. The cramping became too much after I had flushed out solids so I stopped that, and two days later stopped altogether because I didn't think I needed it longer. I drank water and tea, it was mainly a mind of matter thing, which was empowering in the end, because what you will yourself to do can be incredible. I did it once a year ago, since I have eaten well and am doing a triathlon this summer, so I'm training and on a well balanced meal plan. I survived it, had a fresh start, and stuck with good food choices afterwards. Good luck!

    i want to start the master cleanse diet but i dont know where to start?

    • 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.

  38. QUESTION:
    What is the best full body cleanse recipe?
    Do they really work? A friend has recommended Hulda Clarks Liver cleanse. The problem is I am 30 to 40 pounds over weight. (was 65 pounds). I lost 25 pretty quick now I am 'stuck'. I walk 2 miles a day fast, I do a 35 minute work out. I eat like a bird. Lots of salad, little to no carbs. Haven't lost an ounce in weeks! I feel better but I want the pounds OFF. My friend says a body cleanse might help kick the weight loss back into gear? I am 44, 5.6 and weigh 193. I need to get at least 30 more pounds off to feel comfortable. Will a body cleanse help?
    I tried a body cleanse from the health store and I noticed NO difference in anything.It was called 'Total Body rapid cleanse by Renew Life. Was a waste of money from what I can tell.

    • ANSWER:
      It is very normal to plateau during stages of weight loss, and very disheartening! Just keep up your commitment. Things that help include lemon juice in warm-hot water every morning (like a shower on the inside) - for the first week just have one large glass of hot water with the juice of up to half a lemon (or lime - not orange) first thing. then if you can, go for a walk. Follow with a vegetable juice, preferably carrot, parsley and celery. then have a good breakfast with some protein, but no processed foods. Eat fresh fruit and veg, preferably no meat, but some fish is OK. Definitely no chicken (growth additives to their food make it hard to lose weight if you eat chicken). Cut out dairy. Nuts and green veg will provide the calcium you need. Eat enough to satisfy you, but don't eat if you are not hungry. It is important to eat enough so that your body doesn't go into "starvation mode" and store everything, ie keep up your metabolic rate.

      Before meals have a large teaspoon of psyllium husks mixed in water - the psyllium acts like a broom through the gut, and also fills you so that you won't eat so much.

      From the second week on, start each day with two large glasses of warm water and lemon juice. (2 glasses the first week can make the cleansing process too fast, resulting in headaches and a feeling of nausea)

      As a general rule: breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper - what you eat at night you tend to store on the hips, but starving yourself just makes it easier to gain weight.

      Make sure you drink lots of water!!!! Add some lemon juice to help make it more palatable if you want.

      Before going to bed each night, spend 5 minutes imagining yourself slim, trim and terrific!

      Well done for getting as far as you have, and good luck with the remaining weight loss. Keep healthy and happy with who you are.

      I hope these tips help and wish you all the best.

  39. QUESTION:
    Can anyone time me of any natural ways of healing my gallbladder?
    I recently had a couple of gallbladder attacks, and 28 yrs old. Other than meat and fried foods to stay away from. Can anyone tell me other do's and don'ts , about maintaining a healthy gallbladder? Thank You.

    • ANSWER:
      My husband had gallbladder trouble recently too. I would recommend staying away from meat and fried foods like you said... but also avoid carbonated drinks, caffeine, and dairy. Your liver and gallbladder are like yin and yang, so look online for a good liver cleanse - there are many to choose from online, so look around and find one you like the sounds of... start out with a short one (one or two days) and make sure it is very thorough with the details, instructions and what to expect. My husband and I both did a cleanse we found online, and although it worked... it was horrible tasting and I don't think I would do it again, so look around.
      I do know that green apples and green pears are healthy for gallbladder, so eat as many of those as you can, and if you stay away from all the foods lists above, you should feel better. Eat as many fresh fruits and veggies as you can.
      Good luck to you!!

  41. QUESTION:
    How does a total body cleanse work?
    I have seen these products at my health food store. I was wondering what you do & how it works...and how it makes you feel. Any info. you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi There,

      A good total body cleanse involves changing your diet to simple fresh foods and taking some herbal supplements that cleanse the small and large intestines, liver and kidneys. The process usually lasts between 5 and 15 days and can be done by pretty much anyone.

      Most people report feeling lighter, clearer and revitalized after completing a total body cleanse. This is because their organs of elimination are working better and also because they have detoxified their bodies.

      Here is the total body cleanse that works the best in my experience (I've done about 10 different ones).

  42. QUESTION:
    How can I be good to my liver?
    My liver is kinda sensitive. What can I do to make it as healthy as possible?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a number of things you can do
      to help your liver:
      (1) Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages
      (2) Use only medications prescribed by
      your doctor...medications go through
      the liver first to be processed and broken
      down before going to the rest of the body.
      This includes over the counter med, herbs,
      herbal teas, vitamins, minerals, etc.
      The doctors know what drugs are available
      that may be easier on the liver...there are
      many on the market that are not.
      (3) try to stay away from harsh chemicals,
      like carbon tetrachloride and others.
      (4) What your weight... people who are
      overweight can develop a fatty liver.
      (5) Try to keep from getting sick from others. Use purell when you touch things
      like shopping cart handles, door knobs,
      money, etc. That is if you are unable to
      wash your hands. Becoming ill other
      ways can cause you to take medication
      that could be prevented and weaken your
      body so it is harder to heal.
      (6) Wash fruits, vegetables, and other things
      people touch in the grocery store. Also,
      try to avoid open salad bars and other
      things that people can sneeze or cough
      into or place their hands in.
      (7) Get enough rest, fluids, and be careful
      around areas that may put you in contact
      with others blood or body fluids. Be sure
      to wear gloves and take precautions around
      animal feces, human feces, and anything
      that may have parasites, like dirty water or
      swimming in contaminated water.
      (8) Eat as healthy as you can...limiting foods
      high in sodium. Watch your cholesterol levels. Get regular check ups and physicals
      and blood work. Blood testing results usually catch things early on and in a stage
      where they can be treated.
      (9) Do not go for fad cleanses or special
      herbs unless speaking with the doctor first
      about them. Many herbs have not been
      tested to know, for certain, if they can
      damage the liver or not.

      I hope this is of some help.

  43. QUESTION:
    What is a good cleanse / detox for a beginner?
    I love to work out at a fairly high intensity, and I do a pretty good job of eating healthy. I am really interested in doing a cleanse, but I want to be able to continue to work out while I am on it. A lot of the ones I have seen suggest that you work out at a low intensity, so I was hoping some one could point me i the right direction. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      It does not work for detox purposes and it is an extremely unhealthy way to try to lose fat. It's no more than a really bad fad.

      "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 therapies. 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.
