Psyllium Colon Cleanse

Detoxification would always involve dietary and lifestyle changes which will reduce the intake of toxins as well as improve elimination. You need to avoid chemicals from food or other sources, refined food, sugar, as well as caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and many other drugs in order to minimize the toxin load.

When using a herbal colon cleanse to detoxify your colon, it is very important to incorporate probiotics in your diet. These will help to replenish your intestinal flora. Bowel movements form the basis of your health. In case you don't have at least one bowel movement in a day, you are on your way towards disease. Thus, all congestion and toxins need to be removed. This must begin with cleansing of the bowel.

Disease will usually begin with a toxic bowel. In case of those who have fewer bowel movements, they are harbouring a fertile breeding ground for various serious diseases. Infrequent or having poor quality bowel movements over an extended period of time may turn out to be very hazardous to your body.

Any colon cleansing is a process which would include the use of many different supplements, as well as a few days of fasting. A good herbal colon cleanse will also include a parasite cleanse. This would mean following a colon cleansing diet with some colon cleansing supplements. These may include herbs which can kill parasites and worms. Besides, they contain digestive enzymes, contain probiotics, contain herbs that stimulate liver, gallbladder and intestines, besides psyllium husk or seeds, as well as Cascara Sagrada, flax seeds, or slippery elm, and many others.

In order to clear your body of toxins, you need to begin transitioning to a diet which is rich in raw fruits and vegetables. It needs to have very few cooked or processed foods. This will help to keep your digestive system free of mucoid plaque. Regular and easy elimination will take place, and the toxins will not build up. This way, foods will be fully digested as well as utilized. This is a way to get optimum nutrition, which will allow rejuvenation as well as peak vitality.

Herbal colon cleanse is a term referring to a therapy which has having a clean bowel as its main goal. It can take from 3 to 4 weeks up to a few months, depending on that particular person.

Herbal colon cleanse is done by using psyllium, internal cleansing herbs as well as other natural colon cleansing products. It is an essential part of any good detoxification program.

Any good cleansing program needs to always begin by removing the waste which is present in your colon, which is the last portion of your food processing chain.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. QUESTION:

      She drink this mixture once daily until her colon is clean and not foul smelling.

  4. QUESTION:
    what herbs or vitamins are good for colon cleansing?
    what herbs or vitamins are good for colon cleansing?
    I see ads on TV for cleansing but I can't seem to think they are a scam. Are there vitamins or herbs that can help with chronic constipation or cleaning the colon?

    • ANSWER:
      Try a spoonful of psyllium, flax seeds and slippery elm in a glass of liquid before you go to bed.

      Try drinking more water and exercise.

  5. QUESTION:
    I am trying to lose weight using the acai berry and colon cleanse any tips?
    I haven't always been overweight but now it's starting to affect my health unfortunately... because my family has a history of diabetes. I signed up for the free trial of the Acai Berry and Colon Cleanse because of all the commercials and I want to know any input if it works. I haven't gotten the pills yet but I'm hoping I can lose at least 50lbs... and it's not bad for my health to lose this weight it's mandatory!

    • ANSWER:
      This isn't going to work.
      Unless there really is 50lbs of fecal matter stuck in your colon. Then you really are full of it. Lol.
      If you wanted to do something for your colon health then just take some psyllium husk (metamucil) daily as directed on the package.
      If you want to lose weight and try to avoid diabetes then diet and exercise. If it was easy we would all be lean and healthy.
      Goodluck.

  7. QUESTION:
    How many capsules of GNC Green tea complex should I take?
    Im 17 years old and will turn 18 this April 2013. I recently got a bottle of GNC Green Tea Complex capsules my I don't know how many capsules I should take in a day. Also, do I take it in the morning or before I go to sleep?

    I will also be taking GNC colon cleanse along with the Green tea complex and when I turn 18, I will add dosages of GNC Total Lean CLA dietary supplement.

    I am starting to train for a triathlon so im very active but I want to lose weight and fat especially in my stomach and "love handles"

    Thank you so much for taking time in reading this and extra thanks to those who will answer.
    Have a great day! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Green tea is high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can elevate your metabolism.
      A high metabolism burns more calories.
      A diet burning more calories can burn excess body fat.
      So green tea equals weight loss!
      Sorry.
      Green tea alone will not speed your metabolism.
      The capsules are a complete waste. Most if not all of the antioxidant benefit is lost through processing. Save your money and buy a quart jar of psyllium husks if you want to improve your digestive health. Colon cleanses contain mostly psyllium husks at 20 times the price and will primarily cause diarrhea.
      A healthy diet including green tea and exercise will work every time. In many cases replacing sugary or artificial sweetener drinks is the benefit since green tea has no calories in it. I drink mine with lots of ice and a few ounces of orange or lemon juice.
      Good luck.

  8. QUESTION:
    Should i buy colon cleanse or total cleanse?
    I got parasite and i used drug that dr recommended. So i am going to buy cleanse products but which of them is useful? Colon cleanse or total cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't bother. Both are overpriced products for something you can manage yourself far more cheaply.

      Prune juice and fiber powder such as Metamucil (Psyllium) or Inulin will do the same job for a fraction of the cost and without all the harsh chemicals in the commercial ripoffs.

      Start with a single glass of prune juice and add the recommended daily dose of the fiber powder of your choice. Slowly step up over the next few days to find the point at which you are being cleaned out but not dehydrated or miserable.

      It works like a charm for detox and weight loss.

  9. QUESTION:
    I want to start the new year with a body cleanse. I need help!?
    I want to start the new year with a body cleanse. After researching, I have found alot of information about Bentonite Clay and Psyllium Husk. Can anyone give some advice regarding these items (like how much to take or how often) or a body (or colon) cleanse that you recommend? I really want something that works. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      If there is anything in your colon that needed cleansing out you would have been dialing 911 instead of posting this question. I have had 2 colonoscopies with pictures and I can tell you that if you take a laxative, drink liquids, and poop until water comes you are as cleansed as you are going to get and this does nothing to keep you healthy if you are eating a regular diet. The clay and husk do nothing to help you either.

  10. QUESTION:
    I know that cleaning out your bowels is a great way to slim. Are laxatives safe to do so?
    I know they sell a lot of colon cleanse items.. but laxatives are way cheaper... i don't know how the colon cleanse things work so please excuse my ignorance but as long as im emptying my bowels wouldn't laxatives work just the same? and how safe are they?

    • ANSWER:
      Laxatives help you by excreting the contents of your body in a timely fashion. While you might lose a few pounds initially, it is just water weight which you will eventually gain back. Plus, you could become dehydrated.

      If you feel like thinking longterm read the article below on using blackstrap molasses and psyllium husks to do a really good job of purifying your body.

  11. QUESTION:
    Can you use table salt to do a colon cleanse?
    so there is a way to detoxify your body called the colon cleanse. one way to do it is by using sea salt in water, drink it, then in a few hours, you get detoxified.

    so my question is, can you use table salt instead of sea salt? its all i have. thanks, please answer back

    • ANSWER:
      try psyllium instead

  12. QUESTION:
    Do any of the diet vitamins work?
    I want to lose weight but i don't want to not eat and no extreme exercising so i was wondering if the acai berry and colon cleanse actually work or if they're just full of shit. I don't mind exercising just not extreme stuff. If you've tried the acai berry and it hasn't worked maybe suggest what's worked or working for you.

    Please don't comment if it's rude or unhelpful!

    • ANSWER:
      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
      An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
      More calories burned can result in weight loss.
      Acai berries cause weight loss!
      That is the big "stretch" these con artists are selling.
      Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are "exotic".
      The "cleanse" pills that usually come with them contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. There is no such thing as a "fat burner ". Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner.
      None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      The same "stretch of the imagination" applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.
      Spending the same to a day on this junk would pay for a great gym membership.
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
      A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.

  13. QUESTION:
    Can a colon cleanse hurt a gastric bypass patients stomach?
    I've been taking Dr.Natura's Colonaide for a few days now and the results are great. I've done my research and know its perfectly natural for the intestines and all that to bloat. The problem is that it feels like my stomach has expanded and i'm able to drink much more than normal. I'm worried this could effect me after I stop the cleanse. Please someone help!

    • ANSWER:
      The safest thing you could do is ask your doctor or surgeon.

      Looking online for your colon cleanse it says...
      "The main ingredient in Colonix® Intestinal Cleanser is psyllium. Psyllium is a natural bulking agent, which yields 60 to 70 percent soluble fibre – eight times that of oat bran. Psyllium helps to absorb toxins in the colon by creating a spongy, gelatinous mass in the bowels. By swelling and absorbing fluids, it breaks down and moves toxic waste matter stuck in the folds and crevices of the colon.

      In addition to psyllium, Colonix® also contains 14 herbs, all of which play an important role in thoroughly cleansing the colon. These include Flax Seed, Fennel Seed, Papaya Fruit, Grapefruit Pectin, Slippery Elm Bark, Marshmallow Root, Rhubarb Root, Guar Gum, Alfalfa, Peppermint Leaf, Uva Ursi Leaf, Stevia Leaf Extract, Licorice Root and Aloe Vera."

      Fibre can cause called a bezoar - a ball of matter wich accumulates in the stomach. "A number of agents cause pharmacobezoars, the most common culprits are antacids, some fibre laxatives."

      Did your doctor or surgeon OK the cleanse? It looks a pretty potent mix for a delicate digestive tract.

      It is possible to strestch the stomach if there is too much matter of any sort in there.
      Please be safe, call your doctor's office.
      I am only guessing from the few facts given.

  14. 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

  15. QUESTION:
    My dog ate a handful of triotox colon cleanse - should I be worried?
    My dog ate 15-20 colon cleanse tablets - they are supposed to be all natural containing psyllium husk and seeds as well as chlorella and spirulina. Is he in any danger or wil he just have a super clean colon??

    • ANSWER:
      Eh..... hard to say. I would take him to a vet just to be sure.

      If it says anywhere on the box not to take more than the recomended dosage for you... then I would be worried.

  16. QUESTION:
    Do Colon Cleansers make me go #2 in the restroom more? What other effects should I feel?
    I bought a 'Total Body Cleanse' Flush and Detoxifying Kit. Should I be expecting to go the restroom more often and going #2 when on this kit?

    What other visible effects should I expect from this kit?

    • ANSWER:
      The answer is YES! But, only if it's a GOOD ONE. They are not all created equal. You def. want to eliminate the built up toxins and spoiled food and things that have gotten stuck in your colon over the years. The ony way for that to happen is to go #2. That's exactly what you want out of a good colon cleanser.

      I've been cleansing my colon for over 15 years and happen to have used ALOT of different products.

      There are only a handful of good ones. The one I used to use for many years is "Sonnes" #7 and #9 but with all the contraversy around the "bentonite" I'm not sure I would recommend it. I used it up until about 5 years ago when a girlfriend of mine told me about this other one by Organica. I like it alot better and haven't used anything else since. I use it at least twice a year -- the company has been around for ages, the customer service is great, and the product does the best job of any colon cleanser I've ever used including the Dr. Hulda Clark cleansing program and Sonnes. That says alot!

      I like it better because it not only cleanses your colon but also includes all the top ingredients for parasite removal and some liver cleansing ingredients too. It's complete and the ingredients are what you would expect to find in an effective cleanser. Things like Psyllium Husk, Flax Seed, Slippery Elm Bark, Uva Ursi, Milk Thistle, Black Walnut Hulls, Pau D' Arco, etc.

      Be careful about all these scams... I did a search when I saw your question and I couldn't believe how many crazy claims are being made and how many scams are out there. If you want to find the one I use go to: www.keepyourcolonclean.com.

      This is a reputable website that rates colon cleansers not only from their own research but they also have live polls for viewers who have used the products to vote. They rate it as they're #1 colon cleanser. I have to agree. If you want to avoid being scammed and want a safe and reliable product that WORKS, my advice is do what I do and go to this site and order it there... www.keepyourcolonclean.com.

      Also, they have a great deal when you first try it and you don't even pay for it for 30 days -- after you've tried it and only if you love it. That says alot about this product too.
      I hope this helps -- goodluck! :)

  17. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to clean out your intestines/colon?
    If you haven't gone to the bathroom for several days what's the quickest and best way to cleanse out your system??....
    I don't have cancer or anything, but I need to know about this

    • ANSWER:
      I have found some colon cleanse method that can help you. First is herbal supplement. Herbal supplements, such as psyllium and cascara sagrada, are some of the best supplements that are used to cleanse the colon. These herbal supplements are very effective in flushing out the toxic substances from your body, and they drive away the harmful parasites and bacteria from your intestinal walls. Second is Oxygen-Based Cleansers. These colon cleansing methods have gained immense popularity in recent times. Oxygen-based cleansers melt the excessive fecal matter and toxic substances accumulated to your intestinal walls. This waste is then converted into a liquid or gas form so that it is easily thrown out from your body.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  19. 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.

  20. 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?

  21. QUESTION:
    Does the acai berry and colon cleanse really help you to lose weight?
    I've already lost a lot of weight but can't anymore! I want to lose more though, I really would like to know if this really works before spending money on it. I read ads that say it does but those always lie. Has anyone tried it and had results?

    • ANSWER:
      Danielle - It does not.
      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than regular blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can HELP you lose weight. Not just make you lose weight.
      That is the big lie these con artists are selling.
      The "cleanse" tablets that usually come with them usually contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. This can deplete healthy bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system. And you can buy a quart jar of it for at the grocery, not 60 tablets.
      There is no such thing as a "fat burner pill".
      Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner.
      Alli is the only over the counter weight loss pill approved by the FDA. There are only three prescription weight loss medications approved. Do you think that if any of them REALLY worked we would have a billion a year industry in "weight loss" supplements?
      The big three pharmaceuticals would dominate the market.
      Approved or otherwise, none of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      You are spending somewhere between and per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
      Don't be surprised if some outrageous charges hit your debit/credit card if you buy online. Go to the terms and conditions at any "acai" web site. Most sites you sign up for have an "auto ship" program and you will be sent more product at , or 0 per month! Some people have to cancel their credit or debit cards just to get the automatic payment stopped.
      That kind of money pays for a great gym membership.
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
      A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.
      Good Luck.

    Is Colon Cleansing Helpful, Which One do You Recommend?
    There are so many colon Cleansing products on the market, I want to know which one is safe and how it can help my health.

    • ANSWER:
      Natural colon cleansing is a great way to detox, refresh and revitalize the body. This works best with healthy diet changes, regular exercise and a program of natural colon cleanse products aimed at cleansing and detoxifying the body naturally.

      Certain herbs work to help loosen colon contents without upsetting natural fluid balance or mineral content. Bearberry, Plantago psyllium, Marshmallow, and Chinese cinnamon work to promote natural and gentle peristalsis, soften stool matter and support the process of regular toxin and waste removal, while assisting in overall colonic health.

      Dandelion, Fennel and Pelargonium reniforme can help cleanse the system, rejuvenate liver functioning and support the body's natural ability to eliminate toxins.

      A natural colon cleanse product can safely help cleanse your colon without harmful side-effects.

  23. QUESTION:
    What are good juices for colon cleanses, and where can I get them?
    Are there any I could get at the grocery store?

    • ANSWER:
      Prune juice and psyllium fiber both you can find at most supermarkets. Cleanses are scams. You can alter your diet to do the same thing.

  24. QUESTION:
    Does taking charcoal capsules help clean out your colon? And if so, how can you tell?
    I also hear that taking psyllium powder/capsules also helps with the cleansing. If I take these products, how do I know that it's working and actually cleaning my colon?

    • ANSWER:
      first off why do you think your colon is plugged up? you need to quit watching infomercials with greasy hucksters on the sci fi channel, instead of worrying because these snake oil guys have sold you a bag of goods write the sci fi channel and inform them you pay for programming not infomercials

  25. QUESTION:
    How safe is Dual Action Cleanse? I just started taking it because I am trying to prevent colon cancer.?
    My grandmother survived colon cancer about 5 years ago. I want to do all I can to prevent it. I figured I would start by eating healthier and adding more fiber and water to my diet. I also just started taking dual action cleanse. I got it from walmart, so i didn't pay a ton of money for it. Is it safe?

    • ANSWER:
      As long as you have no other medical conditions you should be fine. I don't think you should take it long term with out a break though. If you do get off of the dual action cleanse don't do it suddenly or you might get constipated. Try tapering off.
      EDIT: Make sure you follow the directions. It's not a good idea to take laxatives long term. Except bulk forming ones like psyllium.
      If you want to prevent colon cancer, vitamin D is one of the best ways to do that. The research coming out on vitamin D is amazing. Just do a Google video search for vitamin D and cancer and you will see how profound it is. 20 years from now all Doctors will be recommending vitamin D for their patients. Vitamin D activates the most innate part of the immune system. Vitamin D seems to fight many types of cancers not just colon cancer. I personally take 10,000 IU a day which is regarded as the tolerable upper limit (for now). It's almost impossible to overdose. Hope that helps you.

  26. QUESTION:
    Is it ok to fast on a colon cleanse like Colonix?
    I have heard mixed things about not eating for a day or two or three while doing a cleanse...does anyone know for sure?

    • ANSWER:
      yes, make sure you add bulk like psyllium and bentonite clay to it. It's much better to start off with raw fruits and vegetables while staying away from processed sugars and meat. Drinking plenty of water that way you will have energy, fiber and you will be cleansing your system. When you're to the point that your body has adjusted then do it with just the bulk fiber and psyllium and water. It will be much easier for you and not so much a shock to your body.

  27. QUESTION:
    Psyllium & Bentonite raw food detox: Why can't I eliminate much mucoid plaque?
    I began a raw food body detoxification (colon cleanse) on May 31st, and I haven't been able to eliminate much waste/mucoid plaque specifically, since I began. I've been drinking the Psyllium & Bentonite shakes once a day before bed, and increased it to twice a day yesterday morning to see quicker results. Any tips of raw foods I could eat to increase bowel movements, exercises, other advice, etc? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as mucoid plaque.
      It's the Bentonite that emerges.
      "These pills consist mainly of bentonite, an absorbent, expanding clay similar to kitty litter. Combined with psyllium, used in the production of mucilage polymer, bentonite forms a rubbery cast of your intestines when taken internally, mixed of course with whatever else your body is excreting. Surprise, a giant rubbery snake of toxins in your toilet."
      "No gastroenterologist has ever encountered one in tens of millions of endoscopies, and no pathologist has ever found one during an autopsy. They do not exist until you take such a pill to form them. The pill creates the very condition that it claims to cure. And the results are so graphic and impressive that no victim would ever think to argue with the claim."

  28. QUESTION:
    Where in Toronto can I buy Acai Cleanse and Colon Cleanse?
    I'm not really able to buy them online so if anyone knows where I can buy these or which Acai products work best for weight loss could you please let me know. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
      An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
      More calories burned can result in weight loss.
      Acai berries cause weight loss!
      That is the big "stretch" these con artists are selling.
      Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than regular blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are "exotic".
      The "cleanse" tablets that usually come with them contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. This can deplete healthy bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system. And you can buy a quart jar of it for at the grocery, not 60 tablets.
      There is no such thing as a "fat burner pill".
      Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner.
      None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      You are spending somewhere between and per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
      The same "stretch of the imagination" applies to the green tea, maqui berry, hoodia, moyo berry,and african mango seed extract pills out there.
      That kind of money pays for a great gym membership.
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
      A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.

      Looking at your other questions I would stop smoking dope and getting the munchies if weight is an issue....

  29. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest / best / cheapest way to cleanse your colon ?
    Serious answers only, please !

    I really want to do this, but I'm concerned because of the 'six degrees of separation' factor - I don't know anyone who knows anyone, etc. etc. who has sucessfully done this - it sounds great, but where's the testimonials, other than "John G. in Plainview, TX, and Mary C. in Anywheresville, USA"

    Reminds me of get rich quick through real estate schemes - if it's so easy, why don't you hear more about it - why isn't my brother in law's brother and my 2nd cousin rolling in dough for instance...

    • ANSWER:
      ok here is what i have found so far...

      1:OxyPowder is a natural high quality oxygen based full intestinal cleanser with NO side effects (I vouch from my own and others 'experience) which has been formulated to melt away and oxidize compaction in the bowel and provide oxygen to the intestinal tract and bloodstream. OxyPowder doesn’t just clean out the colon, it cleans the colon, small intestine, and large intestine—all without the side effects of laxatives or psyllium based cleansers. While psyllium and other fiber products simply scrape matter out through the center of a clogged colon, OxyPowder removes old, impacted fecal matter as it detoxifies and cleans the entire intestinal tract.

      2:The Colon Cleansing Kit is an eight-day intensive intestinal cleansing program that works by using two herbal formulas. The first, Digestive Stimulator, comes in capsule form and works gently to support normal bowel function.* The second, Toxin Absorber is a powder that is consumed five times per day after being mixed with organic apple juice. The herbs in this formula have traditionally been used for their strong absorptive properties and work powerfully to draw hardened mucus build-up and fecal matter out of the intestinal tract.* We recomment that you do a liquid only fast during five days of the eight days or Toxin Absorber will simply bind to the food you are eating and not to the waste you are trying to remove. For those who elect not to fast, there are two other options. One requires modified diet changes for eight days. The other is a 30 day program with optional diet changes.

  30. QUESTION:
    is there a way to cleasnse the colon without the use of psyllium or benonite?
    psyllium tends to bulk up and not release with me. i have not tried benonite yet but i feel it might not be the most gentle thing to do.

    • ANSWER:
      PLease go to www.firstfitness.com/penney and check out the Reneu and the Fit to a Tea. There are 2 parts to your colon. The tea cleanses the top while the Reneu cleanses the bottom. I have used both with wonderful results!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  33. QUESTION:
    What are natural remedies I can take to soften stool?
    I have been having back pain so I went to the doctor and got an x-ray, they said I had a ton of stool in me and that it could be dangerous and told me to take a laxative. However, I'd feel most comfortable doing it a natural way. What foods should I avoid and what foods should I eat?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to the health food store and buy some Psyllium husks. Take about 2 teaspoons of that and then drink at least a quart of water. Continue drinking water and that will help you greatly. That is a good thing to do each day.

      To get an immediate result, do the Salt Water Flush.

      The Saltwater Flush provides an internal bath for the body, drawing out toxins as it cleanses the entire intestinal tract. Remember, it can do no harm at any time. The digestive tract needs a good washing, but do it the natural way - the saltwater way.

      How you do it:

      2 level teaspoons unrefined mineral salt (rounded for the Canadian quart)
      1 quart lukewarm water

      Put salt in quart jar. For best results, use unrefined mineral salt, not ordinary iodized salt. Add water to jar and stir. Drink the entire quart of salt and water first thing in the morning. This must be taken on an empty stomach. A straw makes it easier to drink.

      The salt and water will not separate but will stay intact and quickly and thoroughly wash the entire tract in several hours. Multiple eliminations will likely occur. The saltwater has the same specific gravity as the blood, hence the kidneys cannot pick up the water and the blood cannot pick up the salt. This may be taken as often as needed for proper washing of the entire digestive system. Use it on an empty stomach whenever you need help with elimination.

      After drinking the saltwater, lie on your right side for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, you are free to get up and go about your duties.

      You should have an elimination in 1 to 2 hours, though everyone is a little different. Be careful not to pass gas, except on the toilet, since it may be liquid coming through.

      The exit of the stomach into the small intestines is on the lower right hand side of the stomach. When you drink, the saltwater goes to the bottom of the stomach, below the opening. To get the saltwater into the small intestine, you need to tip the stomach like a teapot so the saltwater flows out. That's why you lie on your right side.

      Once the saltwater is in the small intestines, the muscle contractions will carry it down the rest of the way. In about an hour you should be able to massage the left hand side of your lower abdomen and hear liquids gurgling. These are liquids that have flowed into the large intestines almost ready for evacuation.

      Salt has been used throughout the ages as a preservative and to draw out poisons. Salt will not do harm when used this way and will sterilize and make it possible for the body to repair itself. When you have a wound on your arm that gets infected, soaking the arm in saltwater draws out poisons. If you have damaged the intestinal tract with fissures or diverticula (small pouches in colon), the salt will cleanse in a similar way.

      EDIT: Yikes! "the flush doesn't work? The specific gravity is not as indicated?" What salt was used to determine the specific gravity issue? Use only a good sea salt because it is loaded with electrolytes. Anyone that says this doesn't work is IGNORANT. I'd absolutely love to see that person do the flush and then deprive them of a toilet and see what happens. lol. The proof is in the results, not some stupid calculation that cannot possibly know the specifics of any particular salt! There are a lot of want-a-be intellectuals here that are pseudo book learned, rote indoctrinated genetic trash cans that have very little credibility. Do what works, not what these people think that have no experience with real health and an agenda to protect.

      Centuries of this process working. One patient just e-mailed me from a foreign country with severe gastrointestinal problems. Went to the doctor and got 3 medications. She asked me what to do and I suggested the flush first before taking the medications that were also harmful. The flush worked and she was well within a few hours and did not want, need, or use the medications.

      good luck to you

  34. QUESTION:
    How can I cleanse my colon?
    I'm very... in nice words, chubby. I've heard that cleansing you colon will help you lose weight and I was wondering how I could do that WITHOUT any pills or medicines or foods. Like are there any types of food like spinach or something. I don't want to buy activia or anything like that because my mom gets really annoyed when I bring up my weight or anything to do with it. So I was wondering if there are any special "miracle" foods that clean colons.

    • ANSWER:
      firstly, don't buy into all that cr*p on TV about carrying around fecal matter in your colon. If humans had that much sitting in their intestines they'd die from sepsis.(poisoning the blood stream)

      If you have regular bowel movements (at least once a day) you are fine. It doesn't hurt to up your fiber intake as most Westernized countries don't eat enough. 30 to 40 grams of fiber a day is good.

      Insoluble fiber is found in whole wheat, wheat bran, vegetables such as cauliflower and green beans and the skins of fruits and root vegetables. Insoluble fiber helps remove toxins from your colon and balance intestine acidity. It also helps move waste through your intestines and bowel.

      some folks purchase psyllium fiber to mix in water or put into soups and such, but if you have the above foods available (and in the list below)you don't need to go to the added expense.

      and fiber makes you feel full thus lessening your caloric intake. (don't skimp on nutrition tho, if nothing else take a multi vitamin tablet every day to keep healthy)

  35. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to remove Mucoid Plaque with Colonix?
    I was curious, because i have taken it for 2 weeks and it has eliminated some gross stuff, but how long for the long rubbery intestine looking pieces.

    • ANSWER:
      The term mucoid plaque was invented by the sellers of the colon cleansers pills; there is no such actual medical condition. These pills consist mainly of bentonite and psyllium, or guar gum and pectin. either way these ingredients form a rubbery cast of your intestines when taken internally, mixed of course with whatever else your body is excreting.
      The only recorded instances of these "mucoid plaque" snakes in all of medical history come from the toilets of the victims of these cleansing pills. No gastroenterologist has ever encountered one in tens of millions of endoscopies, and no pathologist has ever found one during an autopsy. They do not exist until you take such a pill to form them. The pill creates the very condition that it claims to cure.

  36. QUESTION:
    What is a good quick detox diet that really cleans out your system?

    No no not a drug detox! lol I am just trying to clean out my digestive track and get my bod digesting properly.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think there is a "quick diet" for detoxifying your system.

      first of all, what type of detoxification are you talking about?

      There is a natural package called Clean Start by Nature's Sunshine
      This is a 14-day treatment for body cleansing. detoxifies and cleanses the colon and the blood.

      There are many ways to clean your body. You can take Cascara Sagrada and Psyllium Hulls Combination by Nature's Sunshine just for a complete colon cleanse. This is a natural laxative with a high Quality fiber for normal bowel movements.

      If it's something for a blood cleanse just take Liquid Chlorophyll and Pau D'Arco and/or Liver Cleanse

      There are many products for cleansing, I recommend you use any or some of the next products:
      Cascara Sagrada
      Psyllium Hulls
      Liquid Chlorophyll
      LBS II
      Pau D'Arco
      Heavy Metal Detox
      Yeast/Fungal Detox
      Enviro Detox
      Liver Cleanse

      Packages:
      Clean Start
      Tiao He Cleanse(chinese combination)
      Candida Clear
      Para-cleanse (for parasites)

      All of them are natural and from the best natural brand you can find on the market, Nature's Sunshine.

      If you just mean a drug detox, then you can use a product called Stat Flush(not related to Nature's Sunshine), it just works for a blood test so you don't get hot, but it isn't really taking the drug out of your body.

  37. QUESTION:
    dose acai berry supplements and colon cleanser really work?
    i have seen tons of result site of this stuff, and is it safe for me a teen to try it?

    • ANSWER:
      Colon health is a significant factor in your total wellbeing. Most north Americans consume a diet which is downright unhealthy, and it would be smart to take whatever steps available to better the health of the colon and gastrointestinal tract. On the other hand, you want to avoid falling a victim to invented health claims, overblown data, and absolutely untrue assertions geared to scaring you into buying supplements. Especially considering the high cost of the supplements, this advice makes sense.

      It is not just the occasional dishonest seller of the colon cleanses who is taking you to the cleaners but also many of the manufacturers. It is debatable who is at greater fault. Think about this: a colon cleanse which contains mainly psyllium husks and a few herbs in addition will sell for about while a psyllium husk supplement by itself will sell for about .

      Many of the herbs associated with psyllium husk cleansers have very little effect other than to prevent cramping or promoting overall wellbeing. You could mix up a colon cleanse recipe yourself with only inexpensive psyllium husks, vitamin and mineral supplements, and a healthy intake of water.

  38. QUESTION:
    Do the Acai Berry pills actually work for weight loss?
    When i read about Acai berry pills and Colon pills, i was amazed. There were even pictures of people for proof. But im still not sure... what do you think? And also, would it be okay for a teen to take those pills.. or is it just for adults.. ?

      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      You are spending somewhere between and per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything.
      The same "stretch of the imagination" applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.

Epidemiologic evidence suggests dietary fiber intake aids reduction of body weight, body fat and body mass index. Increasing consumption of Psyllium, a soluble-type dietary fiber, generally decreases food intake and ultimately enhances weight-loss.

      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal.

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator
      Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.
      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides. If you still want to pay more for roughly the same effects, try "Acai Berry Cleanse" or Cellular Research Formula "Colon Clear" and "Total Body Purifier." Buy a juicer and pulp apples and other fruits. Make vegetarian stir fry and serve over rice. All of these are safe and effective purifiers.

  41. 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.

    Thanks
    I am 5' 4" and 130 and at risk of over weight I just wanna weigh like 110

    • ANSWER:
      I think you're perfect the way you are, but if you wanna lose weight then dont eat super little. you have to make sure youre full but dont stuff yourself. eat:
      Six to 11 servings of breads, cereals, rice, and pasta
      Three to five servings of vegetables
      Two to four servings of fruit
      Two to three servings of dairy products
      Two or three servings of meat, fish, poultry, and legumes
      (i got that from the canadian food guide)

      and do a lot of exercise and make sure you dont starve. also DO NOT DIET! everyone i know that has tried dieting told me that it doesnt work. try detoxing. the top 10 detox foods are:
      Green leafy vegetables Eat them raw, throw them into a broth, add them to juices. Their chlorophyll helps swab out environmental toxins (heavy metals, pesticides) and protects the liver.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Natual Remidies to help Constipation for Diabetics?
    Hi , My gran is a 70 years old woman. She does not have any physical activity and suffers from constipation a lot. Do any of you have natural remedies to help her . I would prefer her not to take any medication.

    • ANSWER:
      Constipation is when you have a bowel movement less than three times per week. When you do go, the stool is hard and difficult to pass. There are several natural ways to prevent this condition. Most of them take just minutes a day.

      Your Garnny should follow these steps to cure the constipation naturally.

      Drink plenty of water. Most people who suffer from constipation are dehydrated. Water is essential in moving waste matter through the colon. Drinking 6 to 8 8-oz. glasses of water can help prevent constipation.

      Eat a high fiber diet. Fiber is an important element in promoting healthy digestion. Fiber helps to add bulk to stools, making them easier to pass through the bowel. Your diet should include fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

      Avoid dehydrating liquids such as soda, coffee and tea. Avoid too much alcohol consumption, as alcohol also has a dehydrating effect on the body. Cut your intake of meat, eggs, cheese and refined processed foods.

      If possible ask her to walk ,regular walk can prevent constipation.

      Cleanse your colon with natural remedies such as Colon Sweep. There are products available that are made with natural ingredients, including psyllium husks, and can help to cleanse your colon of built-up waste resulting from constipation.

      Take natural remedies such as Natural Moves that can relax the bowel, ease tension and promote regular bowel movements. Many such products are available online or at health food stores.

  45. QUESTION:
    Are there any alternative natural herbs for bone cancer?
    My wifes uncle in Honduras has bone cancer and not much money to fight it. I was wondering if there are natural herbs or methods to fight this disease.

    • ANSWER:
      go on Dr Richard Schulze's incurables program. You can email me and I will send you a link to the save your life videos whee you will learn so much and he salso speifically talks about bone cancer

      but going on it it is not that cheap), but I live below the poverty line and did it by making my own tinctures. If he goes here someone lists a source to comparable formula that are somewaht cheaper..

      http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1216921#i

      thoroughly read this curezone site and see herbdoc.com for the formulas.

      http://curezone.com/schulze/handbook/TNIP.asp

      also search around the site

      Email me and I can send a link to the first two videos and how to get the rest..

      In the videos, he has a story of a man with bone cancer in 90% of his bones was came to him not for the cancer as he thought it was incurable but for raging bladder infections no doctor could heal..he cured that in three days and eventually the bone cancer too.

      you might also try essiac tea but be sure it is brewed correctly.

      also supplement your programs with wheat grass. Get the hoxsey formula or schulze detox formula found at herbdoc.com is similar but not sure that this will be enough.

      Do searches at curezone.com

      Best best is the incurables (save your life) program.

      He might try going to juice fasting (but be sure he is taking an colon cleanse with it like that at herbdoc.com)..as a bare minimum take psyllium with it as the bowels must be working.

      with it do skin brushing and exercise to use the skin to sweat..see this link and study the incurables program..do the parts he can if he can't afford it like the hot cold showers but not sure if it is enough..

      If he is juice fasting, take in only fresh juiced fruits and veggies, potassium broth (see this link for incurables), herb teas, and good water like distilled or reverse osmosis.

      also read the book cancer battle plan and cancer battle plan sourcebook and if possible see the videos by Dr lorraine day (cancer doesn't scare me anymore) and hoxsey the quack who cured cancer (at the end they list many alternative treatment

      Of the five program from the past I read cured cancer, I noticed all of them used raw fruits and veggies (preferable organically grown) and their juices). This is because there is a protein coating surrounding each cancer cells and this prevents the immune system from killing it. the enzymes in the produce eat away this coating and this allows the immune system to go in and kill the cancer cells. I read green tea also does this (be sure is is home brewed green tea and no the commercial stuff).

      there is hope..no matter how bad he is..the best I feel is the incurables but people have also been healed on essiac and the hoxsey formula an all juice fasts as well

      Please email me for the links to the videos..I can maybe send you the manual but it is hard to send as it is 700 pages if I have your email address, or if I can help further.

  46. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used colin cleansers, do they work and what and how long are the effects?
    Is it like taking a laxitive and you need to be close to a toilet, or can you take a colin cleanser and go about your normal business , and is one product better than another.

    • ANSWER:
      There are many reasons to keep the colon as healthy as one can and there are effective ways to do that, not the least of which is making sure you're getting enough fluids and enough fiber in your diet, consistently. Not over-doing, just healthy balance.

      An old reliable method is a brief juice fast... Apple juice can soften old fecal matter which lets it move through the colon for natural elimination. Use 100% juice [fine to use frozen type - or reconstituted concentrate sold in lg. bottles]. Other 100% juices work, too, it's just that apples have something other fruits don't when used for this purpose. No solid food while on such a fast - only the juice, water, etc. Avoid soft drinks, too, especially during the fast. Additives in those could interfere with what you're trying to achieve. Recently, I did 1/2 gal. apple juice in a day with no ill effects. You know your system, just be smart about your overall health issues. Be wise, safe and use common sense. If juices are safe for you a fast [eg., 1 or 2 days] is unlikely to create problems.

      Some colon cleansers have cascara, for instance, and it can be an unduly harsh laxative. Read labels and research ingredients before assuming any product's safe for your system. Research isn't simply asking someone who's trying to make a sale. They may [or not] be medically aware. If you have major concerns, yes, ask your doctor before risking your health. [Pharmacists often know more about meds than doctors.]

      Almost every adult has very old residual fecal matter they've not eliminated for one reason or another. Very old and sometimes in large amounts [as in several pounds]. However, since nutrients must reach the bloodstream to do what they're to do, and some only reach the bloodstream after they're in the colon, when walls of the colon are heavily coated, certain nutrients can't reach the blood vessels. The healthier one's colon the healthier they'll feel.

      All laxatives, however, are irritants. They irritate the colon to work harder than it ordinarily would. Much safer, if one can, to first use stool softeners, additional fiber [psyllium is a fiber supplement], a good fluid balance [valid reason for 8 glasses of water a day rule]. Beef, for instance, can stay in the system at least 4 days. Ranchers don't like to hear that but once in 4 days is all most humans can eat beef without excess buildup. Fish and fowl are [for most] easier meat products to metabolize.

      Colon cleansers may or may not have the safest ingredients for your system. Again, read the labels and do careful research. An excellent website with up-to-date information on health issues is WebMD. It's free, medical professionals rely on it, a search bar is on it for access to information from their archives - on almost any health question one may have. I've found their info reliable - have used their website for years.

      One thing to be sure about is this: If you have pain involved, and that's why you're considering a colon cleanser, avoid laxatives of any kind until you know what's causing your discomfort. If fever is present avoid laxative use, especially if having abdominal pain. Many things to consider... Appendicitis and diverticulitis are both serious - you DON'T want to tamper with these on your own. Parasites are quite common, often overlooked culprits. Colon polyps are fairly common, too. Many things to consider...

      It's wise to be cautious and conservative, using as natural a colon cleanser as possible... such as a brief juice fast. Only if/when you feel safe in trying what's sold on some shelves should you risk self-medicating... including cleansing your colon.

  47. QUESTION:
    Can someone give me a little guidance on IBS?
    I am currently going through a series of medical tests to see if i have IBS. I would like some concrete information on the foods that are safe to be eaten and the trigger foods that I need to stay away from.

    • ANSWER:
      DON'T eat/drink:
      1. fake sugar (aspartame, sorbitol, etc...). this is the worst food that triggers ibs!!
      2. refined sugar (the normal white stuff... desserts, etc..)
      3. coffee
      4. anything that causes you gas (beans, etc..)
      5. anything unhealthy

      DO eat/drink:
      1. first thing in the morning: drink a glass of water with 1-2 (you can have more, if you want) freshly squeezed lemons in it.
      2. peppermint tea
      3. aloe vera juice (whole foods sells it)
      4. psyllium husk seeds (whole food sells it)
      5. probiotic supplements (or yogurt with probiotics in them)... i eat non-fat plain yogurt with probiotics already in it, as well as a probiotic supplement daily.
      6. the Master Cleanse (it's a 10-day colon cleanse)
      7. raw food diet (first do the master cleanse, and then this diet for as long as you want. or just try it out)...google or youtube it for more info.
      8. drink alot of water throughout the day
      9. if you have the diarrhea symptoms of ibs, you might become anemic (iron and vitamin B12 deficient). you can also take a iron and B12 supplement.

  48. QUESTION:
    Tips to reduce the producing gases in bowels?
    I am facing a problem that my bowels produce much gases until stool remains in them. My stool passes slowly slowly. I am much worried about this situation. Doctors are failed to overcome on this problem. I could not identify which thing create such problem to me. I use natural foods instead of processed foods. please give me a tip/trick to minimize this problem.

    • ANSWER:
      A deficiency in zinc and vitamin B12 causes low stomach acid (which isn't a good thing!) and this causes gas. you might want to take a vitamin B-complex supplement (has all the B-vitamins in it, including vitamin B12) and a zinc supplement daily. (you can always get your nutrient levels checked up. the nurse will take a blood test to see if you're low in any of them.

      take a probiotic supplement. probtiocs are the good bacteria in our intestines/colon that help us go to the bathroom. if you don't have enough probiotics in you, you can get gas, constipation, etc.. don't get probiotics from yogurts and other products that say they have probiotics in them - it's usually not true because it's pasteurized. you want to get probiotics from unpasteurized goats milk, unpasteurized kefir, fermented foods (such as raw sauerkraut), and a probiotic supplement. Dr. Mercola sells a really good probiotic supplement (that's the one I use).

      I used to have a problem with gas as well, so I did The Master Cleanse (it's a colon cleanse) for 10 days and then took a multivitamin and a probiotic supplement when I finished the cleanse. if you want to do the master cleanse, don't do it for more than 10 days though - using too many laxatives it's good for the digestive system, but 10 days should be fine for the average person. google about the master cleanse for more information.

      The reason people get gas or have digestive problems is because their pH level is too low (high acidity in the body). make sure you're eating healthy, alkalizing foods! drink a glass of water first thing in the morning with a freshly squeezed lemon in it. NEVER eat junk food, sugar, artificial sweeteners, carbs, alcohol, coffee, or too much meat because these foods trigger gas, digestive issues, and make lower your pH level (causing high acidity in the body).

      Other things that help gas/digestive issues: peppermint tea, 100% aloe vera juice, evening primrose oil, splippery elm, psyllium husk seeds, and probiotic supplement. (most of these things are sold at health food stores)

      Dr. Mercola and Dr. Pompa have posted some info about how to alkalize the body on youtube, so you could check that out. just youtube "Dr. Mercola" or "Dr. Pompa".

  49. QUESTION:
    What are foods with no carbs or very low carbs?
    I want to go on a low-carb diet and possibly intake no carbs at all.
    Yes, I have been looking online to find a food chart of some sort but I can't really find anything.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Most vegetables are low carb. Some good foods to include in your diet are broccoli, green leafy veg. like swiss chard, kale, spinach. There are few veg. that are high in carbs... like corn- avoid this. Carrots, too are higher in carbs. Eat as much food as possible in its most natural state.
      You still need to get some carbs, just stick to lower glycemic carbs like these mentioned above. Also add a lot of fiber to your diet to help make you feel full and to help cleanse your colon as well. Some good fiber supplements contain guar gum, psyllium seek husk powder and apple pectin.
      If you are going on a low carb diet, you want to avoid eating fruit very often. If you do eat fruit, have in in the early part of the day, preferably before 12:00 noon and make it a low-glycemic fruit such as peaches, strawberries, blueberries, grapefruit, cantaloupe and plums. Avoid watermelon, grapes and bananas. Fruits should always be eaten along with a source of protein to avoid a rapid increase in blood sugar. When you eat a high glycemic food (sugary food) alone, your blood sugar goes up, insulin is released, sugar is stored as glycogen and fat. This actually teaches your body to store fat efficiently... exactly what you are trying NOT to do. It also makes you crave carbs.
      Also, if you are going low carb, you need to eat every 2.5 - 3 hours to help maintain a normal blood sugar level. This will keep you from getting hungry (and binging) as well as keeping your brain functioning well.
      Include good fats in your diet too (not too much). Your body needs fats to make hormones which regulate many cellular functions. Add a couple of teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil to hot vegetables or salad along with lemon juice. Omega-3 fish oil is very beneficial as well.
      If you are going low carb, you need to make sure you are getting enough lean, good quality protein from sources (if you are not vegetarian) like lean beef, turkey, chicken, wild salmon, cod and flounder. You'll need about 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. You can check out a lot of good nutritional information in a book by Corinne Netzer, The Complete Book of Food Counts.
      Good luck.

  50. QUESTION:
    How long will it take me to lose 50/60 lbs or more?
    If I eat no junk and eat only healthy foods like fruits and drink plenty of water and go to the gym every day for 1-2 hours, how long will it take me to lose 50/60 lbs?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing 60 pounds should take you 4 months.

      Here are other ideas:

      Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be "normal."

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal. Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.

      The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides.

  1. QUESTION:
    where to purchase acai berry?
    it's good for the diet (slimming/loosing weight) i just heard about it. for you guys out there, can u kindly please tell me the product name and where can i purchase it. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Be VERY careful where you buy it from, there's loads of scam website which claim to provide a "free trial" but in actual fact start charging your card + a month (see the answer above!).
      Get it from a local shop, don't buy it online unless it's from a trusted source.

      http://edition.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/03/23/acai.berries.scam/index.html

      "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- 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.
      Companies selling acai fruits are under investigation after numerous consumer complaints.

      Companies selling acai fruits are under investigation after numerous consumer complaints.

      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.

      Consumers are asked to provide a credit card to pay shipping and handling charges, but begin almost immediately receiving to monthly charges. Thousands of consumers have had trouble stopping those charges once they canceled the free trial offer.

      Acai (pronounced a-sigh-EE) comes in a number of forms including juice, pulp, powder and capsule. 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.

      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.

      Acai juices sell for as much as per bottle.

      "The expensive acai berry is triumph of marketing over science, that's the bottom line," Bowden said. "It's not useless, but it's not anything that people are claiming it is."

      Companies including FWM Laboratories of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Hollywood, Florida, Advanced Wellness Research of Miami Beach, Florida, and other acai companies are accused of using fake diet blogs to steer consumers to sites plugging the free trials.

      After a doctor listed acai as a healthy food on the Oprah Winfrey show last year, and a guest on Rachael Ray's cooking show mentioned the fruit, ads popped up directing consumers to sites selling acai weight loss products as if endorsed by the celebrities. Winfrey and Ray have publicly disassociated themselves from those sites.

      Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is investigating numerous complaints and said a lawsuit against FWM Laboratories is very likely.

      According to the Better Business Bureau, FWM Laboratories received an F rating, the BBB's worst. Other acai companies with the BBB''s F rating include Advanced Wellness Research, AcaiBurn, FX Supplements and SFL Nutrition.

      "There are no magical berries from the Brazilian rain forest that cure obesity, only painfully real credit card charges and empty weight loss promises," Blumenthal said. "Aggressive acai berry pitches on the Internet entice countless consumers into free trials promising weight loss, energy and detoxification. These claims are based on folklore, traditional remedies and outright fabrications unproved by real scientific evidence."

      Keri Gans, dietitian and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, recommends that customers turn to fruits and vegetables at their local produce markets.

      "If you're going on the Internet to find them and paying shipping fees, you should go to a market and buy local vegetables and fruits," she said. "It'd be a lot less expensive."

      Acai berries could be part of a well-balanced diet of different fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Gans said consumers should be skeptical whenever any one food seems too good to be true and should not to rely on one "miracle food" to boost health. "

Herbal Colon Cleanse Recipe

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How long does a kidney transplant surgery take?
    I'm learning about diabetes and i'm wondering how long a kidney transplant surgery takes?

    • ANSWER:
      Transplants are dangerous and not necessary.

      If a complete cleansing is done, and the right diet followed, the body will rectify itself.

      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      Recipes for Kidney Cleanse:
      Herbal Kidney Clease
      Watermelon Cleanse
      Water Cure
      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  2. QUESTION:
    Can one donate a non-matching kidney to the transplant list to give someone on the list an advantage?
    Let's say that I have a friend who needs a kidney, and I know of someone who has been declared brain-dead and will be a donor, but is not a match for my friend. Can the kidney be donated to someone on the national transplant list who is a match in my friend's name? In other words, would my friend have any advantage over others awaiting transplants if this were done?

    • ANSWER:
      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal.

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator
      Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.
      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      A detox recipe may include a diversity of ingredients, depending on which area of your body you want to cleanse, as well as what your personal tastes and preferences are. The goal is to detoxify your body with healing foods that will revive your body from within, and increase your energy and overall wellbeing.

      Lemon Detox Diet Recipe

      One of the easiest detox recipes to make is a lemon drink for replacement of all solid foods for a period of up to a week or even two. You could also simply substitute a meal or two each day with the lemon beverage if you prefer. This drink is created by adding two tablespoons of brown rice syrup along with two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to a glass full of water. You may add a dash of fresh grated ginger for taste and to help your digestive system function. Use in place of solid food whenever hunger strikes.

      Fresh Fruit Detox Recipes

      Fresh fruit like bananas, apples and strawberries can be used to whip up satisfying detox salads. You can use strawberries, lemon zest, extra soft tofu, and honey to make a deilghtful dessert.

      The apple detox diet advises three days of eating only apples and applesauce, and drinking apple juice and cider. Fruit is a great way of cleansing the body and bringing wellness and vitality to your life.

      Prior to having a new detox recipe, you should spend, at the minimum, seven days eating a light nutritional fare for cleansing your colon and readying your body for the more dynamic detox recipes. This includes avoiding junk foods, and maintaining the healthy diet for a full week. Look for detox recipes which include only wholesome ingredients like fresh fruits and vegetables, extra-virgin olive oil, unsalted nuts and seeds, and herbal teas.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  6. QUESTION:
    How long will it take me to lose 50/60 lbs or more?
    If I eat no junk and eat only healthy foods like fruits and drink plenty of water and go to the gym every day for 1-2 hours, how long will it take me to lose 50/60 lbs?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing 60 pounds should take you 4 months.

      Here are other ideas:

      Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be "normal."

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal. Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.

      The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides. If you still want to pay more for roughly the same effects, try "Acai Berry Cleanse" or Cellular Research Formula "Colon Clear" and "Total Body Purifier." Buy a juicer and pulp apples and other fruits. Make vegetarian stir fry and serve over rice. All of these are safe and effective purifiers.

  7. QUESTION:
    What foods are natural stool softners?
    I need to know of foods that will help with constipation problems. I know of Prunes but I need others instead of that.

    • ANSWER:
      Water.
      Kiwifruit.
      Epsom Salts (draws water into the bowel). tsp per glass of water twice in 24 hours but not for regular use.
      Chillies
      Liquorice (but not made with wheat)

      SOLUBLE FIBER
      Soluble fibre - bulks and softens the stool because it attracts water and swells thereby softening stool. Is in fruit and fruit skins - have stewed apple, cook with the skins on. Edible seaweeds.
      Pyllium seed husk powder - must be taken with plenty of water as it soaks up 10 times it's volume in water, if not more. 1 level teaspoon in a large glass of water. If you don't take enough water it will add to the constipation. Great for chronic constipation in the elderly or those who have developed a 'lazy' colon or who are unable to exercise this is a priceless remedy.
      Once you have alleviated the constipation have this on a regular basis in a more pleasant form by adding to smoothies - it makes a nice 'thick shake'. Still continue to drink plenty of water.
      There is a video on a colon cleansing diet on www.herbal-detox-kit.com

      Stop eating wheat products which contain gluten. Honestly this is a very important in cases of constipation. Try this and see, the gluten is difficult to digest, it is much higher in modern grains than it used to be centuries ago and scientifically proven to remain in the gut for long periods of time. It can stick and clog and form a plaque on the intestinal lining. So, that means stop bread, pastry, pasta etc. Sorry if you like these but if you experiment for a couple of weeks you will then be able to decide if it helps you and if it's worth eating or avoiding.

      Also non-solube fibre - vegetables, fruits, bran. To maintain the bowel once the immediate constipation has been relieved you could make bran muffins without wheat flour. Make up your own recipe with rice flour, quinoa flower, cornmeal and bran. But remember to keep your diet high in live, fresh vegetarian foods as well.

  8. QUESTION:
    What is a SAFE natural colon cleanse?
    There are a lot of scams out there...do any of you know any SAFE, colon cleansing recipes? Preferably herbal.
    :)

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there are lots of scams out there, and one of them is that your colon needs cleansing. It doesn't.

      From Wiki:
      "No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing. The bowel itself is not dirty and barring drugs or disease, cleans itself naturally without need for assistance.

      Colon cleansing is not necessary as the body naturally removes waste material. Colon cleansing may disrupt the balance between bacteria and natural chemicals in the bowel, and may interfere with the colon's ability to shed dead cells. Other rare but serious complications include gastrointestinal perforation from improper insertion, and amoebic infection from poorly sterilised equipment. Some colon cleansing regimes disrupt fluid and electrolyte balance which may lead to dehydration and salt depletion, whilst repeated or excessive cleansing programs can lead to anemia and malnutrition. Excessive use of enemas have also been associated with cardiac problems such as heart failure, and heart attacks related to electrolyte imbalances when used with coffee.

      The frequent use of enemas or other colon cleansing tools may lead to dependence and an inability to defecate without assistance or withdrawal symptoms. Herbs that are consumed for colon cleansing and taken as oral preparations may also interfere with drug absorption and effectiveness."

  10. QUESTION:
    My 4 year old son has a chronic cough and it sometimes leads to vomiting. Any ideas?
    Every couple weeks my son will be feeling completely fine and will all of a sudden get a horrible cough. No other symptoms other then vomiting sometimes. Then he will get right up and be totally fine and doesn't act like he is feeling sick at all.

    • ANSWER:
      HI Scatter

      COughs are truely misunderstood. Here is the definition and some remedies to utilize. A colon cleanse would be advisable as well with the vomiting issues.

      Cause
      This is often caused by a stomach disorder that comes from overloading the system with food, wherein fermentation in the stomach causes phlegm. It may also be induced by inflammation in the bronchial tubes due to a neglected cold. Worms may be the cause. Many coughs are from a nervous condition, where coughing may eventually become habitual. Coughs are highly misunderstood. Usually a sore throat and coughing are caused by the sinuses draining the eustachian tubes, which is like pouring acid down the throat. A cough usually comes from a lowered vitality in the system from improper diet, loss of sleep, lack of exercise, and fresh air, improper breathing, poor elimination, or improper night clothing and bedding.

      Herbal Aids
      1.General Instructions: Acute coughs can often be relieved with a little honey and onion syrup. When it is the result of an old acute condition, clear out the morbid condition as rapidly as possible without causing irritation. In old cough conditions, comfrey with vervain or mullein are very good. The antispasmodic tincture is also excellent, and it is good to massage the chest area across the back with an antispasmodic tincture during attacks of spasms. Antispasmodic tincture may be used both internally and externally as a liniment on the throat. If this is due to a neglected cold, any of the diaphoretic herbs are excellent. To relieve the coughing spasms, use horehounds, comfrey, or a small amount of lobelia. High enemas of herbal laxatives will relieve congestion of the bowels, and if the cough is severe (asthma, whooping cough) load the stomach with liquids and induce vomiting.

      2.Bronchitis, Bronchial and Spasmodic Coughs, Whooping Cough: Drink the infusion of red raspberry leaf tea freely.

      3.Comfrey: Coughs, raw or sore throat, slight hemorrhage. See formula for 1 wine glassful of mucilage of comfrey root every hour until tissues are healed and coughing stops.

      4.See formula for coughs, asthma and bronchitis using elecampane, skunk cabbage, aniseed, pleurisy, licorice, lobelia, ginger and cayenne.

      5.See formula for coughs, consumption and tuberculosis using cayenne, slippery elm, lemon and honey.

      6.See wonderful old time recipe for cough syrup made with onions and honey.

      7.Dr. Christopher's Antispasmodic Tincture: (Antsp Tincture) is useful for coughs.

      8.You can massage the chest with antispasmodic tincture, and give a tea made of equal parts wood betony, spearmint, peppermint, and catnip.

      9.Dr. Christopher's Cough Syrup (Herbal Cough) is a fine old fashioned combination for coughs.

      10.See recipe for garlic syrup which is very useful for coughs.

      11.Juices for coughs : Carrot, carrot & spinach, blackberry, fig.

      Best of health to you and your son.

      Cheers

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  13. QUESTION:
    What is the best detox liquid diet recipie to lose atleast 5-10 pounds?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, if you mean that you want to detoxify and cleanse your body then it's possible to lose some weight by doing so. There's a few liquid detox/cleansing programs out there. The more popular one is The Master Cleanse, it's 10-day liquid diet that helps to cleanse a person's system by loosening blockages and removing toxins.

      The Master Cleanse consists of a mixture of fresh-squeezed lemon juice (or sometimes lime is substituted), cayenne pepper and real maple syrup. Each ingredient in the Master Cleanse recipe brings its own unique benefits to the overall process.

      The Fresh-squeezed lemon juice helps to loosen and break up blockages. Blockages happen when food materials and toxins stick to the walls of the digestive system, which is the main cause for weight gain. The reason is because waste and toxins build up until other substances cannot pass by them, much like a clogged drain. Lemons also contain cationic and anionic minerals, which aren't found in other fruits or vegetables.

      Lemon skin can be beneficial too, as it contains many vitamins that can help to keep the body healthy while a person is on the Master Cleanse. It's important for people to be aware, though, that many lemons, which are found commercially in stores, have been treated with unhealthy dyes and pesticides. So using organic lemons is best if you want to include the skin in the juicing process. If you don't have access to organic lemons then it's best to peel the lemons before squeezing them.

      Another essential part of the Master Cleanse Diet Recipe is the use of cayenne pepper. It breaks up mucus, while cleaning out the body's major systems. You ever notice when you eat something spicy how your nose tends to run, well that's why.

      The final major ingredient, all natural maple syrup, is an excellent source of sugars (energy) and minerals, if the right form is obtained. There are three grades (types) of maple syrup. Grade B is the best choice for this diet because it contains more minerals than Grade A and it also has a better flavor. Grade C can be used in the Master Cleanse drink also. It does contain the most minerals of the three, but most people find it hard to deal with the strong taste.

      Fiber is necessary to stimulate the movement of the colon. While the Master Cleanse drink itself does serve to loosen mucus and toxins from the colon walls, the drink contains no fiber. That is why many people also use the herbal tea as a laxative while on the Master Cleanse. If you do not use a laxative tea, you can use a saltwater flush instead. Saltwater is naturally found in the body, for example, human tears are nothing more than saltwater. A saltwater flush doesn't hurt the body in any way. The only problem with it is that many people find the taste of saltwater hard to swallow.;-)

      This combination of ingredients make the Master Cleanse an extremely effective way to flush the system and improve a person's overall health and energy levels. I know that the Master Cleanse has helped thousands of people with almost every type of health problem imaginable, including
      weight loss , acne , and chronic fatigue to name a few. I hope this helps you. If you need more information about detoxification and cleansing you can check out http://detox-flush.blogspot.com

    • ANSWER:
      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal.

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator
      Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.
      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psyllium home-made crackers or rice chips with an ounce or two of spreadable soft feta; a quarter-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      Bad Fat Good Fat Food Fat List

      If you're having trouble digesting some of the bad fat good fat food fat details, you're certainly not alone. And it's understandable why.

      After all, too much saturated fat or any trans fat in your diet is clearly a disaster waiting to happen. On the other hand, the essential fatty acids are "essential" for optimum physical, mental and emotional health. To clear up the confusion, here's your bad fat good fat food fat list of fat facts.

      Trans fatty acids are the real bad fat boys. Since trans fats have been shown to raise artery-clogging LDL (bad) cholesterol and cause breast cancer, they should be totally eliminated from your diet.

      Trans fat is created when processed vegetable oils are hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated. Food sources include candy, cakes, pies, cookies, pastries, crackers, biscuits, cereals, deep fried foods, fatty meat from beef and sheep, soups, margarine and some salad dressings.

      Saturated fats should make up no more than about 10% of your calorie intake. Even though saturated fats add flavor to food and can be beneficial in small amounts, in large quantities saturated fat has been shown to clog arteries and cause other cardiovascular health problems.

      Saturated fats are mainly in animal foods, such as beef, pork, lamb, butter, cheese, cream, ice cream and other full-fat and low-fat dairy pro

    Is instant oatmeal a healthy breakfast?
    im on a diet and i would like to know if instant oatmeal is a healthy choice for breakfast..and if its not then what are some other good breakfast meals that are healthy?

    • ANSWER:
      I believe in oatmeal. I believe in oatmeal. I believe in oatmeal.

      You can make it more interesting with a little vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, fruits or nuts.

      More ideas:

      I suggest that you substitute more fruits, vegetables, and nuts for the starches. Use only multi-grain starches or skip the breads and crackers. No "Hot Pockets" due to probable high-fat content. No "Animal Crackers" because they are nutritionally worthless and contain no fiber. A baked potato with skin would be more complete. Consider making your own multi-grain crackers and skip the tortilla chips, unless you make a meal of the chips with salsa and no fattening additives.

      Here are a few ideas, aside from "Weight Watchers":

      Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be "normal."

  16. QUESTION:
    What are the exact ingrediants for the "Master Cleanse" aka "The Lemonade Diet"?
    i want to start it but don't want to pay tons of money for it; i heard you can loost twenty pounds in two weeks

    • ANSWER:
      The entire book is online for free if you are interested in taking a look at it.
      http://www.geocities.com/hotsprings/spa/7244/master_cleanse.html
      The Master Cleanser/Lemonade Diet

      See below for the recipe and some other tips etc. that I have written up and given to friends.

      THE LEMONADE- makes 1 10oz glass
      8 oz water (preferably bottled)
      2 Tablespoons Fresh squeezed lemon or lime or combo of both (prefer organic)
      2 Tablespoons Grade B maple syrup (a little less for weight loss)
      1/10 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I just sprinkle some into each glass)

      I make my days worth in the am and take with me in a plastic juice container that I get from the store. They are usually 64 oz. which is about my whole days worth.

      I don't premix the cayenne, I carry it in my bag in the small shaker.

      USE LESS MAPLE FOR WEIGHT LOSS. SOMETIMES I USE THE EXACT MEASURES, DEPENDING ON HOW I AM FEELING THAT DAY. IF I FEEL LOW IN ENERGY I USE THE EXACT MEASURES TO MAKE SURE I AM GETTING ENOUGH CALORIES. THE MAPLE IS YOUR "FUEL"

      Be sure you get enough of the lemonade during the day or you will feel weak and may get dizzy! If dizziness does occur you may take a spoonful of maple syrup or backstrap molasses.

      Directions:
      The night before you start
      Drink decaf Herbal laxative tea (Smooth Move is good and Triple Leaf Herbal Laxative Tea is good also. Smooth Move has a better flavor.)

      DAY 1
      Drink laxative tea am
      Drink 6-12 10 oz glasses of lemonade
      Drink laxative tea pm
      Lots of water. 8 glasses or so

      Day 2 - 40 (It is suggested to do a min. of 10 days)
      Repeat of Day 1

      The SALT WATER FLUSH (SWF) can be done in place of the laxative tea in the am. Do not do both in the am. Some people prefer the SWF over the tea as the tea can be addicting because it has Senna in it.

      Salt Water Flush Directions: Prepare a full quart of lukewarm water and add two level teaspoons of non iodized sea salt. Do not use ordinary iodized salt as it will not work properly.
      Drink the entire quart of salt and water first thing in the morning. This MUST be taken on an empty stomach.

      How to Break the Lemonade Diet
      Coming off the lemonade diet properly is highly important - please follow the directions very carefully.

      FIRST DAY:
      Several 8 oz. glasses of fresh orange juice as desired during the day. Drink it slowly.

      SECOND DAY:
      Drink several 8 oz. glasses of orange juice during the day - with extra water, if needed. Some time during the afternoon prepare a vegetable soup (no canned soup).

      THIRD DAY: Drink orange juice in the morning. At noon have some more soup; enough may be made the night before and put in the refrigerator. For the evening meal eat whatever is desired in the form of vegetables, salads, or fruit. No meat, fish, or eggs; no bread, pastries, tea, coffee, or milk. Milk is highly mucus forming and tends to develop toxins throughout the body. (Milk, being a predigested food, has been known to cause various complications in the stomach and colon, such as cramps and convulsions. The calcium in milk is difficult to assimilate and may cause toxins in the form of rheumatic fever, arthritis, neuritis, and bursitis. The resulting lack of proper digestion and assimilation of the calcium allows it to go into the blood stream in a free form and it is deposited in the tissues, cells, and joints where it can cause intense pain and suffering.)

      FOURTH DAY:
      Normal eating may be resumed, but best health will be retained if the morning meal consists of our type of lemonade or fruit juice; and, of course, if a strictly fruit, vegetable, seed and berry diet is followed. If, after eating is resumed, distress or gas occurs, it is suggested that the lemonade diet be continued for several more days until the system is ready for food.

      Recipe for Vegetable Soup
      Use several kinds of vegetables, perhaps one or two kinds of legumes, potatoes, celery, carrots, green vegetable tops, onion, etc. Dehydrated vegetables or vegetable soup powders may be added for extra flavor. Okra or okra powder, chili, curry, cayenne (red) pepper, tomatoes, green peppers, and zucchini squash may be included to good advantage. Brown rice may be used, but no meat or meat stock. Other spices may be added (delicately) for flavor. Use salt delicately as a limited amount of salt is necessary. Learn to enjoy the natural flavor of the vegetables. The less cooking the better. Have this soup for the evening meal using the broth mostly, although some of the vegetables may be eaten. Rye wafers may be eaten sparingly with the soup, but no bread or crackers.

      I like to go to a site called http://www.curezone.com/ The Master Cleanse is always listed on the their support topics.
      Be sure to check it out, it is a big help!!!

      Good luck and HAPPY CLEANSING!

  17. QUESTION:
    Are there any support groups for people going through kidney failure?
    I am a 37 year old juvenile diabetic and am going through kidney failure.I need support from someone around my age going through the same thing
    I am located in Lafayette,Louisiana.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know of any groups but I do know that the medical industry is not honest.
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  18. QUESTION:
    Recovering from chronic illness - would you recommend a juice fast?
    Let's say someone was recovering from a chronic bacterial illness that casued fatigue. Would you recommend a juice fast, and if so what kind of juices.
    (I am guessing the liver needs to recouperate and their energy system needs to get back to normal. The liver has been stressed for a few years).

    • ANSWER:
      yes Dr Richard Schulze who cured the incurables of everything always said when sick or dying the first thing to do is juice fast.

      He also recommended colon cleansing and said 80% of his pateints got better on that alone.

      His colon cleanse is called intestinal cleanse #1 and #2 sold at herbdoc.com

      He allowed fruit and veggie juices, potassassium broth, and herb teas.

      Here is his potassium recipe

      http://www.curezone.com/schulze/herbal_5day_liver_cleanse.asp scroll down

      and here is a brief synopsis of his incurables program..for more see the book there are no incurable diseases sold at herbdocblog.com or better yet get his far far more comprehensive save your life manual and videos.

      They sometimes have these 12 hours of videos and 700 page manual at ebay or amaxon and I think Sam Biser has it currently for sale but not sure if he left things out or not.

      Schulze said the best veggie jucie combo was 40% carrots, 40% beets and 20% beet tops (or other leafy green like kale)

      He said the best fruit one was 40% apple, 40% grapes and 20% berries.

      Dr Nornan Walker who lived to be 97 and was araw foodist back in the 40/50 had jucie reciopes for variuous ills in his book fruit and vegetable juices and I noticed nearly every illness had these two juices

      1 carrot juice

      2 carrot-spinach (10 oz carrot and 6 oz spinach)

      He also listed lemon a lot

      Also green juices (or green smoothies if you are not fasting)

      Any dark leafy green (there are dozens of these including veggies tops like carrot tops etc or even bok choy, broccoli or celery as well and safe wild plants like dandelion leaves or plaintain etc and juice (or blend if making a green smoothie) with any fruit you like --try a variety of them..if the fruit gies off little juice once in a while maybe blend it with a little water and strian it through a cloth to remove all pulp. Sweeten with natural sweetener if you do not like it such as raw agave nectar, raw honey, stevia etc

      Be sure if jucie fasting to consume no pulp as then the vital elements do not go to healing and repair but mostly digestion. Also drink within 20 minutes or so lest enzymes dissapit and make fresh each time. Green snoothies though if not juice fastign will stay in refrig about 2-3 days but juices deteriorate quicker so drink right away. Chew the juice.

      I liked being able to have the broth when I did my 30 and 50 day juice fast as sometimes when hungry it seemed more filling and more like food and kept me staying on it. also liked occassionally warm things. I saved the veggies in it and froze for later soup making.

      To mop up all bacteria take any of these

      1 raw garlic (at least 3 cloves or more a day)
      2 colloidal silver
      3 organic olive leaf (very good)
      4 grapefruit seed extract (very good but bitter so take with citrus juice)
      5 oil of oregano (I like oreganol)

      These also can help with any bacterial, viral, fungal and protozoan infection--3 and 4 have enough gotten rid of hiv virus, bird flu and swine flu and herpes etc according to a book I read on it by a doctor's doctor (that one was #3)

      When juicng in addtion to the jucies I mentioned an green juices, go for variety

      Remeber fruits are for cleansing and veggies for building..so if the healing crisis is to great add a little more vbeggies or potassium broth to slow it down a bit bewfore resuming f desired

      It will not hurt you as people who were super ill and dying months ago according to doctors did this.

      Take a little ginseng maybe if too fatigued and you must be sure you are colon cleanisng or at minimum taking somethign like prune juice or apple as if the toxins cannot get out, you could feel a lot worst.

      You might also want to look into Schulze liver cleansing at the link I provided to his patient handbook

      A slower way to recover would be going all raw vegan with a lot of green smoothies and some juices.

      Best of luck

      also be careful how you break the fast go slow maybe somethign like raw applesauce or a small salad or some steamed carrots. this is very important..

  19. QUESTION:
    How can I lose weight fast?
    I have been trying for two years to become healthier. I am 17 years old and 5'7". I started at 262 and now i weigh 242 lbs. I really need to lose more weigh though, and i've been stuck around 240 for the past year. I'm broke and live with my handicap mom in the middle of no where and she picks what food comes into the house. I drink skim milk, don't skip meals and try not to eat anything full of sugar, carbs, or fat. Its too cold to go outside, what should i do? please PLEASE help me!

    • ANSWER:
      Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be "normal."

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      At 17, you are almost an adult and should have a part in selecting the foods you eat. Furthermore, it is never too cold to go outside. Every week in winter, I climb a mountain through snow between my knees and waist. Until a few weeks ago, I was riding my bike to work dressing in layers and using footbed heaters in my shoes. The weather need not prevent you from exercising.

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.

      The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides. If you still want to pay more for roughly the same effects, try "Acai Berry Cleanse" or Cellular Research Formula "Colon Clear" and "Total Body Purifier." Buy a juicer and pulp apples and other fruits. Make vegetarian stir fry and serve over rice. All of these are safe and effective purifiers.

  20. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of acne on the cheek and mouth area?

    • ANSWER:
      If you eat unhealthy foods that are loaded with fat and refined sugar your skin will pay the price.

      Avoid hydrogenated oils- deep fried foods are the worst! Remember, what goes into your body must come out eventually, and one way for these toxins to be eliminated is through the skin! Re-discover fruits and vegetables. Go for the green! Leafy greens are by far the best. More fruit will help detoxify your system naturally.

      If you find it hard to eat vegetables or are just plain lazy, you can drink them! I enjoy a glass of all day energy greens every day. It is a suitable way to get all of the beneficial nutrients found in fruits and vegetables. Be prepared to spend a few dollars though.

      Colon Cleansing

      Another way to help along natural acne remedies is to cleanse the colon. Always discuss with your doctor if you plan to start using herbal cleansing products, especially if you are taking prescription medication. Herbs can interfere or counteract with certain medicines. If you have kidney or liver problems, using certain herbal supplements could be dangerous.

      Drink Enough Water!

      Too many people do not drink water, and this is one of the most important things you can do for your skin! Our bodies are up to eighty percent water. We need to drink water to keep it balanced. Eight glasses a day is the minimum. If the skin is dehydrated it will create more oil, and this is something we do not want when fighting acne.

      Here are a few recipes for natural acne remedies you can try along with all of the above mentioned tips.

      Cucumber Mask

      Along with eating these wonderful vegetables, applying them to your skin is a luxurious way to combat and prevent acne. Put in a blender one cucumber and smooth over the face. Let it sit for at least one half hour and wash off with warm water. Do this daily and your skin will glow. It really does work, and you can pay hundreds of dollars at a spa for the same treatment.

      Yogurt

      Eating yogurt is good for the skin, but if you do not care for the taste, wear it instead. Combine one mashed strawberry and four tablespoons of plain yogurt and smooth over the face. Let it sit for fifteen minutes and rinse.

  21. QUESTION:
    what can I expect from stomach cancer?
    started as breast cancer and progressed to stomach,leg,bone,brain and liver cancer.Is there a successful treatment for this. that you are aware of.

    • ANSWER:
      I think reading the information below, and the referenced reports will help you a great deal.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      CLEANSING
      The best way of cleansing is to fast.

      http://www.phifoundation.org/menses.html
      http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?ID=1996

      but if a patient is too weak for that, or does not fancy the idea, then alternative cleanses are available.

      http://curezone.com/dis/1.asp?C0=261

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.

      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

      Zappers are available from

  22. QUESTION:
    Long term effects of a kidney hematoma and general information on them?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      Recipes for Kidney Cleanse:
      Herbal Kidney Clease

      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  25. QUESTION:
    How can I lose weight in 2 or 3 weeks!?
    I'm in high school and I'm not fat; like fat fat but I just have alittle stomach. And my school is going to the beach in 4 weeks or so. And I REALLY like this guy and I want to look good (Of course) What are somethings that I can do to lose maybe 4 or 5 pounds? I will do anything to lose 4 or 5 pounds. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be "normal."

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal. Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.

    how can i get a sexual life with my husband who is under hemodialysis kidneys?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      Recipes for Kidney Cleanse:
      Herbal Kidney Clease
      Watermelon Cleanse
      Water Cure
      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  28. QUESTION:
    Will the radiation from Japan affect people all the way in Brooklyn, NY? Ifso what precautions should be taken?
    What precautions should I take, living in Brooklyn, NY to help prevent radiation poisoning

    • ANSWER:
      They say no but who knows knowing our government has lied in the past.

      If it was me & I was very worried. I would do a couple things.

      Iodine is said to help the thyroid from being affected as if the thyroid
      is saturated w/organic iodine, the radiation is not absorbed as much as the thyroid sucks up the radiation.

      I would take a lot of seaweed in the next month or so, & add it to my regular diet on occasion as well. In fact, I was not even thinking of the crisis & happened to eat a ton of seaweed lately during the last five days just cause I like it.

      I went to a Chinese buffet.They had this yummy seaweed (the best I ever had in fact so good I asked the waiter to check what kind it was. It had a sweet taste & I put a lot of the seaweed into my hot & sour soup. He said the pack only said it was Korean).

      I tried to find it at a local Asian market & got something but not sure if it was right but I tasted good. I was craving hot & sour soup when my car was broken so found an easy recipe for it that was vegan online (I am a vegan.)

      I added the seaweed in large amounts in fact I am eating the soup right now. It is very good.

      I even made a simpler version using veggie broth, vinegar (I used red wine or brown rice vinegar) & soy sauce. Then I added things.

      Things you might add besides the seaweed are the following:

      Carrots, bamboo shoots, tree ear or shitake or regular mushrooms, bok choy, spinach, miso, egg, scallions, etc

      Make a big batch, freeze it in baggies & take some daily or every few days.

      I also like dulse. Most people like this seaweed as it tastes the best. I gave it to a 2nd grade class when I was doing a unit on nutrition & the veggie part (sea veggie) & to my surprise, 2/3 of the class loved it & asked for more. I was student teaching *& the teacher was shocked..she had predicted noone would eat it as at lunch the kids at this school always threw away most nutritious things they were served like fruits, but they sure loved their dulse seaweed :)

      When my son was little, well both of them actually, begged for more & requested a lot of dulse baked in oven with cheese over it.

      Many people liked the ready made seaweed salad sold at stores like Krogers & giant eagle in the Asian section by the produce departments. Looks like this
      http://www.tastydays.com/f_images/474829980_37f171c0fd_z.jpg

      Seaweeds are very high in iodine that helps protect against radiation poisoning of the thyroid.

      So up those.

      If it was me, I would also do colon cleansing using the intestinal cleanse #1 & especially #2 as this 2nd formula removes 3000 drugs residues including strontium 90 (Radioactive) http://curezone.com/schulze/herbal_colon_cleanse_1_2.asp But one needs to take the intestinal cleanse #1unless maybe you are going to the bathroom 3 times a day or so.buy at herbdoc.com

      You could also do cleansing of the elimination organs (bladder/kidney cleanse, liver-gall bladder cleanse, blood cleansing, lung/mucus cleanse, skin brushing & lot of fresh juices.

      Eat as much raw food as you can (fruits, veggies, raw nuts & seeds, spouted grains & sprouted legumes, cold pressed oils & extra virgin olive oil, frozen produce & raw nut milks & soaked oats)

      Take in a lot of green smoothies & green juices.

      Even if you are not exposed the steps are not wasted as these things (good nutrition in & toxins out) greatly help the body.

      In summary, lots of seaweed, green juices & green smoothies (ie-mix leafy greens with fruits in blender or juicer).lots of raw foods, colon cleansing..optional other cleansing of the body elimination organs but the colon is the most important.

      I am telling you what I would do if I was worried. I do not think it is silly to be concerned despite what government says, They didn't t tell us about the nuclear testing in Nevada in the 50s when I was growing up hurting us & it is now known that the fallout came all the way over to Ohio & surrounding states, It is now thought this radiation especially in girls around puberty lead to breast cancer later in life. I myself got it at age 39.

      The government is not above lying. We now know that the oral polio vaccines we were given in the 50s in schools were designed to shed to the general population via the kids & thus immunize the parents etc but that they were contaminated with the sv40 virus. This is thought to be in part responsible for the increase in cancers later. This virus is present in most of the cancers.

      Also the US government has tested depleted uranium in our country & it has been said to be found 500 miles or more from the testing sites in populated cities, so they have no concern for their citizens.

      They also dropped depleted uranium in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan & Kosevo They dropped both depleted & non-depleted uranium in gulf war 2 that was the equivalent of 1/4 million Nagasaki bombs. Knowing every place

    • ANSWER:
      Most women in gyms are not virgins.
      You do not need to join a gym to lose weight.
      It is probably better for you to not join a gym.
      People who join a gym usually quit going to a gym after only a few weeks.

  30. QUESTION:
    why is it important to know about prostate cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      It is important to know about any kind of cancer.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      CLEANSING
      The best way of cleansing is to fast.

      http://www.phifoundation.org/menses.html
      http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?ID=1996

      but if a patient is too weak for that, or does not fancy the idea, then alternative cleanses are available.

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.

      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

      Zappers are available from

    i have bin living in egypt for the past 5 years due to my husbands work and i was lookig in international pharmacies for a natural colon clenaser... but non of the pharmacies have anything like that... so could anyone give me a natural powerful recipe for a good colon cleansing??

    • ANSWER:
      You can do a salt water flush. It is actually something that you do as a daily part of the Master Cleanse fast, however you can do this by itself.

      All you need to do is in the evening before you go to bed drink a cup of herbal laxative tea which is primarily senna leaf tea. then first thing when you wake up you drink down 32 oz of water with 2 tsp of Celtic gray sea salt. with in an hour everything will flush out of your system. For whatever reason the salt water stays intact and is not absorbed by the body so it passes through the stomach, intestines and colon flushing them out.

      I have done the master cleanse several times and this is an everyday part of that, so I know it works....its hard getting down the salt water, but it works.

  32. QUESTION:
    Quickest way to pass a kidney stone?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      Recipes for Kidney Cleanse:
      Herbal Kidney Clease
      Watermelon Cleanse
      Water Cure
      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  33. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the detox diet with cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and maple syrup and water?
    if so, does it work?

    • ANSWER:
      Because the act of digesting food consumes our energy on an ongoing basis, it follows that the elimination of solid food for short periods of time will make the energy normally used for digestion available for the process of detoxification. Thus the first step is to stop eating food so that the lemonade drink can commence Is work.

      Because the lemonade drink is easily assimilated, it places little or no demand on the digestive system. Fresh squeezed lemon juice is a powerful cleanser for the body, and is also high in vitamins. Additionally, it is the only fruit or vegetable to contain cationic and anionic minerals.

      Lemon also helps loosen and break up mucus in the body. Mucus is one of the body's defenses to protect it self against irritations. When too much mucus settles in any one area, dis-ease is the natural outcome.

      Those of you familiar with colour therapy will also know that lemon, when consumed fresh squeezed, releases the colour that stimulates the body to cleanse itself.

      Cayenne pepper, another key ingredient of the diet, breaks up this mucous and acts as a cleanser for the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems. It is used by herbalists to treat a wide range of problems and to enhance the effectiveness of many other herbs.

      The maple syrup provides energy from an unprocessed sugar which still contains many of its original nutrients.

      On the subject, the absence of minerals and vitamins in processed sugars makes the digestive system rob the body of these precious nutrient stores in order to metabolize the sugars. If too many processed foods are eaten, the pancreas seems to one of the first organs affected, often resulting in hypoglycemia and then further deterioration of the pancreas.

      The herbal laxative tea is used to stimulate peristalsis of the colon, since the only other way to do it is to eat a diet high in fibre. The lemonade drink, or Master Cleanser, having no fibre, must use a laxative to remove the waste as it is being shed from the colon wall, otherwise it will stay in the body, leading to tiredness and any number of problems.

      2 tablespoons lemon juice or lime juice (1/2 lemon)
      2 tablespoons of pure grade b maple syrup or a maple syrup
      1-2 pinch cayenne pepper, to taste (red)
      12 ounces of purified water (very warm)

      Not the one? See other Master Cleanser Recipes
      < 15 mins Beverages
      Low Protein Beverages
      Citrus Beverages
      Cut up some (preferably organic) lemons or limes.
      Heat up your water (I just zap it in the microwave for 90 seconds).
      Squeeze lemon/lime juice into the warm water (try to avoid getting seeds in your water-- I use a tea filter).
      Sprinkle a little cayenne powder in and stir in your maple syrup.
      Drink this several times a day when you get hungry or thirsty (ok to alternate with pure water but not much else).
      Use this as an exclusive food for 2-30 days, as you deem appropriate.

  34. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to pass kidney stones, and out of the blue pass another one 2 weeks later?
    I had stones a couple of weeks ago and after about 2 or 3 days, I passed at least 4 stones. Then for a whole day I felt like I was dying and seriously thought I was in kidney failure. This morning I had the opportunity to go to the hospital and while getting ready to go, I peed and it seemed instantly most of the pain was gone. Seriously! It was as if I had to pass another stone, even though I hadn't passed any in at least 2 weeks. It turns out I have a severe infection due to a stone getting stuck on its way out and tearing me up. The doc said there was no way of knowing if a stone passed this morning or not. Can a stone float around up in there and take 2 weeks to come out???

  37. QUESTION:
    ok is it table spoon or teaspoon?? for the sea salt flush?
    im soo confused i been watching youtube to see how to make the sea salt water flush? but they say is 1table spoon but by the looks of the spoon it looks much smaller than the one measure spoons i have. they add 2 table spoons to a large cup but others add teaspoons i am confused.
    noo is for the master cleanse

    • ANSWER:
      That so harmful for you... They have been proven worthless and not worth the side effects.

      But here is the recipe if you like:

      Master Cleanse Program

      Take the juice of 1/2 lemon (preferably organic)

      Mix with juice into 8 ounces of distilled water

      Add 1-2 Tbsp. of grade B maple syrup

      Add 1/8-1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (red)

      Drink as many 8-10 oz glasses as required according to your body weight per day. If you weigh 100 pounds then you would drink half your weight in ounces which would be 50 oz or 5 glasses. Do for up to three weeks.

      SALT WATER FLUSH:
      Drink an oral salt water enema upon arising. To do this, add 2 level teaspoons of uniodized sea salt to a quart of lukewarm water (the one-quart juice bottles in which most organic juices come work very well). Shake well, then drink the entire quart. It's also good to massage the colon as well. Make sure you use uniodized sea salt; regular or iodized salt will not have the same beneficial effect. This oral enema will flush out your entire digestive tract and colon from top to bottom, usually within an hour, prompting you to eliminate several times, clearing out the plaque and debris from the walls, and the parasites that have been living there.

      Herbal Laxative:
      Each evening you can drink an herbal laxative tea to help with elimination, do this right before bed time.

  38. QUESTION:
    What are the best alternitive treatments for borderline serous stage III B cancer and what are the odds to win
    my friend was diagnoased with this and has already had her first chemo treatment and has said she wants to quit treatment please help me to give her the best advise possible

    • ANSWER:
      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.

      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

  39. QUESTION:
    My mother died of Breast Cancer at the age of 39. She also had Cervical Cancer when she was younger.?
    What age should I start getting mammograms? How much more of a chance do I have to develope cancer than an ordinary person?Do you recommend the test they have to see if you carry the gene for Breast Cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      Take responsiblity for your own health, and ignore the Cancer Industry.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

  40. QUESTION:
    How do i lose weight? DONT SAY IM NOT FAT?
    im 12 and 105 lbs. i dont have time after school and i dont really have that much time to eat so i eat what ever is avalible
    Dont say im not fat

    • ANSWER:
      The lemonade diet. It's popular among celebrities such as Beyonce.
      If you’ve never heard of the lemonade diet, basically it is a 10-day fast where you drink nothing but a special “lemonade” drink. It is one of the best known methods for cleaning out your intestinal and colon walls. Although not intended as a weight-loss diet, it is effective at helping you balance your body and “rebooting” the metabolic process - which often results in weight loss (I lost around 10 lbs on this). *If you are looking instead for primarily weight/fat loss I would highly recommend the Burn the Fat [see picture to the right] program. I had a lot of success with its principles.

      Well here goes:

      Lemonade Diet Recipe

      For at least 10 days, drink around 10 servings/day of the following:

      2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice NOT BOTTLED JUICE!! (approx. 1/2 lemon),
      2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) organic Grade B maple syrup,
      1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper (hot red pepper), and
      1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) purified or spring water, NOT fluoridated water.
      (This is what I did) This is the equivalent of taking an empty gallon water jug and filling it with:

      the juice of 5 lemons
      1 1/4 cup of organic Grade B maple syrup
      1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
      10 cups of water
      Shake it all up and you got your days’ serving!

      Salt-Water Flush Recipe

      Upon rising drink a mixture of:

      2 level teaspoons of uniodized sea salt to a…
      quart of lukewarm water
      Herbal Laxative Tea (You can find this at most grocery stores)

      Each evening drink an herbal laxative tea to help with elimination - preferably right before bed.

      That’s it! Do that for at least ten days for a complete intestinal cleanse. If you haven’t read my experience with the 10-day lemonade diet, check it out here. Or if you just want to read about the final results you can go directly to the 10th day of the lemonade diet.

  41. QUESTION:
    My doctor told me my urine is showng some crystals, which can lead to kidney stones?
    How do I get rid of these so called crystals? Can I die from it? Any advices?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

      More on kidney cleanse herbs

      Herbal Kidney Cleanse Designed by Dr. Hulda Clark from her book "The Cure for All Disease", explains in detail how to cleanse the kidneys, and her cleansing program will get rid of most if not all the stones, WITHOUT surgery.
      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  42. QUESTION:
    i wanna make all stars cheer leading but i need to lose weight what is the best thing that i can do?
    i wanna make all stars and high school but i need to lose some weight whats the best think i can do without spending money or not alot of money?plz help...

    • ANSWER:
      Check a BMI calculator to determine how much weight you need to lose to be "normal."

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving…

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psillium home-made crackers with a half-cup of spreadable soft feta; a half-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a half-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal. Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.

      The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides. If you still want to pay more for roughly the same effects, try "Acai Berry Cleanse" or Cellular Research Formula "Colon Clear" and "Total Body Purifier." Buy a juicer and pulp apples and other fruits. Make vegetarian stir fry and serve over rice. All of these are safe and effective purifiers.

  43. QUESTION:
    What type of infection do I have? It started out as bladder.. then kidney?
    The Dr. diagnosed me with a bladder/kidney infection. He gave me Bacterim as an antibiotic and the 3rd day I woke up and couldn't talk. The bacterim has also given me a yeast infection and peeing now is horrible.. it's like peeing razor blades.

    Today I woke up with swollen/sore lips and sore throat, and I have a thick white stuff on my tongue. I couldn't talk so I silenced myself all day. It hurts to eat and drink and my head also hurt the entire day. I forced myself to eat a kids meal from mcdonalds earlier.

    What has happened to me?

    • ANSWER:
      It's obvious that you have no idea about a healthy diet. Eating MacDonalds is probably what got you ill in the first place.
      You need to do some internal cleansing.

      There are some diet changes essential too!

      Ingredients:

      1/2 cup dried Hydrangea root
      1/2 cup Gravel root
      1/2 cup Marshmallow root
      4 bunches of fresh parsley
      Goldenrod tincture (leave this out of the recipe if you are allergic to it)
      Ginger Capsules
      Uva Ursi capsules
      Vegetable glycerine
      Vitamin B6 250mg
      Magnesium oxide 300mg or 1/4 cup Green Drink Beverage

      Measure ¼ cup of each root and set them to soak, Together in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (a dinner plate will do). After four hours (or over night), bring liquid with soaked herbs to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a ¼ cup as soon as it is cool enough. Pour the rest in through a bamboo or plastic strainer into a sterile pint jar (glass) and several freezable containers. Refrigerate the glass jar.
      Find fresh parsley at a grocery store that does not spray its produce (ask the owner). Boil the fresh parsley, after rinsing, in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Strain out the liquid, then drink ¼ cup when cool enough. Refrigerate a pint and freeze 1 pint. Put the cooked parsley in your compost bucket.
      Dose: each morning, pour together ¾ cup of the root mixture and ½ cup parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of goldenrod tincture and 1 tbs. of glycerin.

      Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Keep cold. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in the bladder. If your stomach is very sensitive, start on half this dose.

      Save the roots after the first boiling, storing them in the freezer. After 13 days when your supply runs low, boil the same roots a second time, but add only 6 cups water and simmer only 10 minutes. This will last another 8 days, for a total of three weeks. You may cook the roots a third time if you wish, but the recipe gets less potent. If your problem is severe, only cook them twice.
      After three weeks, repeat with fresh herbs. You need to do the kidney cleanse for six weeks to get good results, longer for severe problems.

      Also take:

      Ginger capsules: one with each meal (3/day).
      Uva Ursi capsules: one with breakfast and two with supper
      Vitamin B6 (250mg): one per day
      Magnesium oxide (300mg): one a day

      Take these supplements just before your meal to avoid burping.

      Some notes on this recipe: this herbal tea, as well as the parsley, can easily spoil. Heat it to boiling every fourth day if it is being stored in the refrigerator; this resterilizes it. If you sterilize it in the morning you may take it to work without refrigerating it (use a glass container).

      There are probably dozens of herbs that can dissolve kidney crystals and stones. If you can only find several of those in the recipe, make the recipe anyway; it will just take longer to get results. Remember that vitamin B6 and magnesium taken daily can prevent oxalate stones from forming. But only if you stop drinking regular tea and cocoa. Tea has 15.6 mg oxalate acid per cup. A tall glass of iced tea could give you over 20 mg oxalate acid. Switch to herb teas. Cocoa and chocolate, also, have too much oxalate acid to be used as beverages.

      Remember too that phosphate crystals are made when you eat too much phosphate. Phosphate levels are high in meats, breads, cereals, pastas, and carbonated drinks, eat less of these, and increase your milk (2%), fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 2 pints of water per day.

      You can dissolve all your kidney stones in 3 weeks, but make new ones in 3 days if you are drinking tea and cocoa and phosphate beverages.
      Cleanse your kidneys at least twice a year.

  45. QUESTION:
    Is it okay not to seek medical care after having found out you have cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      Definitely.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.

      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

      Zappers are available from

  46. QUESTION:
    is there such a thing as vitamins for the kidney?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you already gone through the full kidney and colon cleansing processes?

      Kidney cleanse is any procedure that involves drinking a huge amount of liquid, and taking care what you are eating. Just a better diet with more water can be enough! But, also any form of bowel cleansing will also help kidneys! The Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet is also a Kidney cleanse, juice fasting is also a kidney cleanse, and any other form of fasting that incorporates a lot of liquids, will in the same time clean a kidney. Do you need special herbs? Only if you have acute lower back pain, clear symptom of Kidney stones (sharp glass like crystals, made of phosphoric acid, or sometimes may include other acids). In special occasions, you can get a kidney stone crystallized in less then a few days !!! To melt a stone/stones, you may need a few weeks, or one day with the Watermelon Cleanse.

  48. QUESTION:
    how can i cleanse myself ?
    what to i need to do to follow the cleanse diet ??

    • ANSWER:
      Simply eat fruits and vegetables, no meat. Here is more:

      Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal.

      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator
      Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.
      http://www.aarp.org/health/healthyliving/bmi_calculator/?CMP=KNC-360I-GOOGLE-HEA&HBX_PK=bmi_calculator

      You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

      Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

      Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

      Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

      Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psyllium home-made crackers with a quarter-cup of spreadable soft feta; a quarter-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

      Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a quarter-cup of cayenne-coated sunflower seeds; a quart of water.

      Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

      Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

      My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

      The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides. If you still want to pay more for roughly the same effects, try "Acai Berry Cleanse" or Cellular Research Formula "Colon Clear" and "Total Body Purifier." Buy a juicer and pulp apples and other fruits. Make vegetarian stir fry and serve over rice. All of these are safe and effective purifiers.

      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.
      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

Reviews On Colon Cleanse

Hair care products and special skin care products are needed to achieve the new Cheryl Cole look, says hair and beauty experts.
According to an article in This Is London, those wanting to imitate Cheryl's red hair should invest in hair care products such as colour care shampoos and heat resistance sprays.
Likewise, beauty experts suggest that when it comes to skin care products and makeup, those opting for brighter red hair tones should steer clear of blusher as it will make the face appear very red.
Some of the hair care products that are recommended to use are from Mark Wooley's range. The Electric Hair Care Colour Protect Shampoo and Conditioner are said to keep dyed hair up to a third brighter and more vibrant than other hair care products on the high street.
Additionally, the new range of Pantene products which are released in a few weeks also claim to be able to waterproof the surface of the hair, making it resilient to harsh weather conditions and hair colour, leaving it shiny and strong.
Cheryl Cole is very much a beauty ambassador and face of makeup and hair dye brand L'oreal. Since sporting the new red hair on The X Factor, people up and down the country have been rushing out to hair stylists to emulate the look.
Hair colourist, Lisa Shepherd commented on the look on Twitter last week claiming she had just finished her 16th Cheryl red hair job of the day.
She tweeted: " Colour-wise, it is an autumn trend which has really taken off since Cheryl took it on.
"Dark, plummy red softens Cheryl's features but she just needs to be careful not to overdo the fake tan or blusher. Otherwise it could end up being too clash-tastic."

      Anyways the site mentioned in the source below contains short reviews of the most reputed colon cleanse products out there in the market. Hope this is what you were looking for!

  2. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any suggestions of a good colon cleanse system?
    I have never been impressed by all this clean colon crap, but a friend of mine mentioned she did it and she lost about 5 pounds. I am now interested in knowing if anyone has any reviews or suggestions on any colon cleanse systems. Anyone tried one and had good results?

    • ANSWER:
      5 lbs??LOL..well, it is BACK there in a week! Worthless waste of money and time..not to mention CRAMPS! Just eat more healthily! Lots of veggies..nothing cleans you out better than broccoli.

  3. QUESTION:
    What is a really good affective colon cleanse?
    I want to find a colon cleanse that is good. I just found out that I'm lactose and gluten intolerant, so I want a good cleanse that will help get my body more regulated and back to normal. I heard to start with a colon cleanse and every time I go to look, I bump into a company that wants money for a certain medicine. Does anyone have any good colon diets that work??

    • ANSWER:
      Contrary to popular belief, colon cleansing is quite effective in getting some toxins out of our system. So far one product that I usually use is Pro Health Cleanse. Here's a review about it. http://www.slideshare.net/johnbryce/pro-health-cleanse-pro-health-cleanse-review

  4. QUESTION:
    What is your favorite colon cleanse system?
    I'm looking for a non-clinical (meaning not going into a clinic to have a tube stuck where the sun doesn't shine) colon cleanse system. I've seen one that is apparently popular in Canada and is now in the US, Jillian Michaels has one, there is a system I have seen on an infomercial.... there are just so many.

    And I want to know which is the best?

    • ANSWER:
      Dual action cleanse is a popular one that you can find in stores, but I prefer Ultimate Colon Cleanse. There is a 30 day online free trial.

      You can see a review/comparison over at http://top2reviews.com/dualactionvsultimatecleanse.html

  5. QUESTION:
    What's the deal with getting a colon cleanse? Would it be worth the money or is just a fad?
    I heard that the average person has anywhere from 5 to 15 pounds of fecal matter build up inside their colon! (YUCK) and that a colon cleansing can get rid of that. Is that true or just junk science?

    Also, if a colon cleansing is worth the money, do you have to go to a doctor to get one done or can you buy something at a drug store or health food store and do it yourself?

    Thanks for any help and / or advice.

    • ANSWER:
      As I understand it (not that I've had it done or anything) it is more than just a fad. It is meant to be VERY good at getting rid of toxins which will make your body much more vibrant and healthy, better digestion, better skin, better flow (blood and waste), you should feel less sluggish and more 'on the go'.

      However it is expensive and it only really has long term benefits if you get colonic cleansing on a regular basis - like once a year.

      I am a little shy of it but if I had more money and knew I could keep up the annual payments then I would try it as I believe it to be very beneficial.

      Where to get it done? I'm not sure - I think most beauty salons would do it. Perhaps some private doctors/health clinics too? I don't know how to advise where you find out the best one in your area. Google's always good but as for reviews? Who knows?

      Good luck!

  6. QUESTION:
    What is a good product for colon cleansing?
    My friend Doug is looking for a product that is good for colon cleansing. Has anyone heard of something called Aloe cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Green tea is health, but it's not a colon cleanser.

      Most of the colon cleansers have the same basic formula rehashed into different bottles or boxes.

      I've used The Ultimate Cleanse, Dual Action Cleanse, and Ever Cleanse, and all gave me about the same results.

      The Ultimate Cleanse comes with a free trial though if you want to just try it out before spending money. You can see a review of it here: http://www.top2reviews.com/dualactionvsultimatecleanse.php

  7. QUESTION:
    what are the best colon cleanse products?
    I am looking to do a one or two week colon cleanse and am looking
    for the best product to use.

    • ANSWER:
      The link has a review of ten products. The second is advice from the Mayo Clinic about colon cleansing. Good Luck. : )

  8. QUESTION:
    Do you know anything about colon cleansing to lose weight?
    I often hear how you can lose 15 lbs just by getting your colon cleansed. Do you have any experience with this? Where can I find more info?

    How often do you have to do it? How long does it take to lose 15 pounds after doing it? How safe is it? How much does it cost? Where do you get it done?

    I promise to pick best answer!

    • ANSWER:
      The acai berry really isn't meant to be a colon cleanser. It's just a food high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.

      A colon cleanser will get rid of about 2-3 lbs of waste/parasite buildup immediately. The rest of the weight loss comes from the health benefits of getting rid of that waste. Your body absorbs more nutrients and vitamins and your energy is increased. There's a nice article on it over at http://www.thehealthfitnessblog.com/general-health-and-fitness/dual-action-colon-cleanse

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

    Thanks x

    • ANSWER:

  14. 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.

  15. QUESTION:
    Who has done a colon cleanse?
    I suffer from acne and want to try a colon cleanse before I drastically change my diet to a paleo type diet. What do you all recommend? You can never tell if online reviews are companies paying for the website or people who actually tried them.

    • ANSWER:
      Acne doesn't come from your colon, it comes from metabolic by products of a specific bacteria on your skin - colon cleanse products only make you poop - which won't do a thing for your skin. Sorry, it's not what is in your intestines which is making you zitty, you didn't pick your DNA wisely: there is a strong genetic component to the immune dysregulation that leads to acne (what does that mean? everyone is swimming in that bacteria, not everyone responds to it, your genes are telling your immune system "all systems alert!" when it shouldn't....no matter how much you poop, you'll still have the same DNA telling your immune system "react! react!" to Propionibacterium acnes bacteria)

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12485434

      However, I do like iherb.com because the product reviews are by actual customers who bought said product, that said, steer clear of products that contain cascara sagrada, senna, aloe or turkey rhubarb - those are a) harsh b) habit forming. If you are bound and determined to use a colon product, go for one that is primarily fiber.

      These are edible and as long as you aren't taking other medications, most doctors will support you taking them (never take fiber with other medications - they block the absorption of everything)

  17. QUESTION:
    What are other ways to clean your colon or cleanse your colon without buying all these expensive online pills?
    I'm trying to convince my mother to cleanse her colon because of how important it is to get rid of all the nasty toxins but she was never a true believer of buying anything from the internet and is very old fashioned so if anybody knows any foods or over-the-counter pills that may have a similar effect and help get rid of nasty toxins please answer it would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      the review done by http://www.coloncleansezone.com/colon-cleanser/best-colon-cleanser.html actually compares the popular over-the-counter colon cleansers available.

    • ANSWER:
      Why don't you try a colonic irrigation or a series of enemas?

  19. QUESTION:
    Besides processed foods and sugars, what else must I avoid while cleansing?
    I recently purchased a colon/intestinal cleansing supplement that got great reviews online. I know that you're supposed to avoid processed food and sugars while cleansing, but I've also recently read that you're supposed to avoid wheat and dairy foods as well. Is this true? Is it a must, or a word of caution? I just want to make sure that I do it right if I'm going to do it.

    The supplement did not come with information on what to eat while taking it.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, I just did a cleanse. Avoid wheat, dairy, all meat except fish. It won't hurt you if you eat any of these things but avoiding them makes the cleanse more effective. Also, eat lighter while doing it, lots of fresh food (fruits and veggies). Not big servings. And drink lots of water.

      Here is the website of for the cleanse I did: www.renewlife.com. Hope that helps!

      Actually, I just went there and its not very helpful but I have the instructions from my cleanse. Here's what it says:

      Diet suggestions:
      Fresh fruit and veggies
      Fish
      chicken and turkey
      eggs
      well cooked grain-millet, buckwheat, amaranth, quiona, spelt
      Pasta made from any of the above grains
      butter
      raw almonds and seeds, raw almond butter
      drink 8-10 glasses of water a day

  20. QUESTION:
    How much weight did you lose with the 14 day acai berry cleanse and colon cleanse duo?
    i started it about two days ago, and i have felt a little sick from it..so i am hoping to hear positive reviews..hopefully

    • ANSWER:
      You are feeling sick most likely because your body is toxic. The Acai detoxes your body, so through many channels of your body, it is trying to eliminate them effectively. Try going to a sauna or taking a hot bath to help alleviate the "overload" in the digestion and so forth. Doing that will bring the toxins out through the skin. That may help with the "sick" feeling you have, until the process is done.

  21. QUESTION:
    Bowtrol Colon Cleanse Reviews – Is Bowtrol Cleanse Any Good?
    Good evening everyone
    Maybe one of you bought the Bowtrol Colon Cleanse product and can tell me if he found this Bowtrol cleanse to be useful for him? I read some reviews today about this product I'm think seriously to buy it but I wonder if one of you can share his own experience with the Bowtrol Colon Cleanse product and can tell what he thinks about it.
    Any help and advice about Bowtrol will be great.
    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.

      By the way you can also use the link below to get great free trial offers for Bowtrol including the full money back guarantee for 90 days. Hope that it helps!

  22. QUESTION:
    Has Anyone Tried The Acai Berry Super Diet Or The Colon Cleanse Diet?
    I keep seeing adds about Acai Berry Supreme online as well as the Super Colon Cleanse that are supposed to promote weight loss. Has anyone tried either of these and if so what were your results?

    • ANSWER:
      I’m a user of Acai and I can tell you that it WORKS! I came across Acai Berry from this website http://www.trustedreviews.us/weight-loss-products/acai-berry-review/ and I ordered the free trial. It really is free, all they charge is the Shipping & Handling and depending upon your location you get it delivered in less than a week (I got mine in 4 days).

      Although, please be aware that this is not a replacement for regular exercise. This is just what it says it is, an aid.

  23. QUESTION:
    Is bad to take laxative everyday? How often should you take laxative and colon cleansers?
    I've noticed that some detox systems require you to cleanse everyday. Does the same go for you stomach?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, That is a good question. Laxatives & colon cleansers are meant an intervention only. Prolonged repeated use is highly discouraged. allot of people are getting hooked on laxatives & cleansers as it helps them compensate for damage their unhealthy lifestyles are causing.
      the fundamentals to health are eat right, sleep right & exercise right. in regards to your colon the most imporatant part would be eating right. Make sure you have an adequate intake of dietary fiber & are eating lots of fruits & vegetables.
      please don't use laxatives or colon cleansers more than they are absolutely needed. there are some that can almost seem to work miracles but it is still just a bandage to cover a syptom when we need to fix the root problem, our lifestyles.
      if you do need to take a laxative or colon cleanse (and we all do at some point) then I would recomend only an all natural product. anything with chemicals is just dangerous to be putting in your body. That said there are one or two products that I feel safe recomending to my patients. there are some that are 100% natural can be used as a laxative & colon cleanser. a good authoritative site to find reviews for various products & info on colon/digestive health is www.doctorcoloncleanse.com

  24. QUESTION:
    I want to do a colon cleanse?
    I've heard a lot of good things about doing a colon cleanse. It can help clear up your skin, help you lose access weight, etc. Has anyone ever done one? How did you like it and did you see results? What did you use and how did you do it? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Doing a colon cleanse is a very healthy step in the right direction of taking care of your body. It can mean the difference in how long you live because by doing one you will be able to destroy the chances of getting colon cancer among other things like prolonging the life and normal operation of many other vital organs like your kidneys, liver, heart and your lungs.

      You should do a colon cleanse every year at least 2 times as it is always good to clean out your system which will eliminate the amount of times you will get sick. It seems as though most sicknesses usually start inside the body from the stuff that is living and growing in it because of all the harmful stuff that is never cleaned out and just sits there to ferment and decay.

      I do one every 3 to six months and I have notice such a big difference in the way that I feel. I seem to have such a burst of energy every time I do one and I do notice a difference in the way that my stomach feels and looks as well.

      If you do one you should use something that is composed of all natural ingredients because it will lessen the chance of any side effects and it will also make your trips to the throne more like a regular trip or normal bowel movement.

      I also noticed that my face clears up gradually as I cleanse with less pimples probably because the crap that was trapped inside of me trying to exit through my skin is no longer there.

      The colon cleanser that I used I got from the site at the link down below and you should visit it because they have a really good review of that product there. It should answer any of your questions as it is aimed at helping people that are doing there first colon cleanse out with what they can expect as well as what they should use.

      I really hope that I answered all of your questions but just in case I didn't you should be able to get the answers at the link below.

      Good Luck!

    What is the best colon cleanse product out there that won't brake the bank and that really works?
    A friend mentioned to me that she had tried several different ones and lost a few pounds plus had more energy. That's great. But I don't want to go through a bunch of wasted time,money,and useless products until I get it right. Is there a product that really works and that is affordable? Or is there a way to make your own cleanser with herbs and such? Thanks to all answers in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Jeanie! Cleansing and detoxing can be tricky... And there are definitely a lot of scams out there! I found this site http://www.detoxreviews.com/ that reviews a lot of the top products out there. Hopefully it will be helpful for you.

  26. 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!

  28. QUESTION:
    What is the best detox/cleanse on the market?
    I just started the paleo diet and working out daily about 2 weeks ago, and I really want to do a cleanse whether is be a "weight loss" one, a colon one, or a total body one, whichever is best. What do you have the best experience with? I don't want to waste my money on something stupid. I've heard a lot about the Advocare cleanse and how well it worked for some people, however there are SOME terrible reviews. I tried looking on GNC's website and read reviews for a few and they are just too mixed. So, what's the best detox/cleanse out there and why? Please and thank you:)

  29. QUESTION:
    Has anyone ever used Colo Vada Plus cleanse?
    I would like to know about other people's experiences with this cleanse. Do you feel it worked? I am looking for a general cleanse as well as a parasite cleanse.

    • ANSWER:
      It does not do anything that your own body does not do on its own. It could be dangerous. And if you have a problem with parasites, this will not take care of it. These products are unnecessary and do not do what they claim to do. And they can actually be very dangerous and damaging.

    Digest It Colon Cleanse Reviews - Is It Effective Or Not?
    Hey,

    Maybe someone here is familiar with the Digest It Colon Cleanse product? I am looking for an effective colon cleanse product and it seems that there are many Web Pages and reviews on Digest It Colon Cleanse which recommend using it. However, I wonder if this product really work that well or not and what are the pros and cons of it. If anyone can share his or her results with Digest It Colon Cleanse I will be really thankful.

    Many thanks!
    Kim

    • ANSWER:
      Hello Kim

      I bought the Digest It Colon Cleanse just before couple of weeks and started making use of it 5 days ago, so it will be too soon for me in order to tell you just how powerful the Digest It product is.

      Even so, I have to admit that my very first impressions are good and here are several things that I like regarding the Digest It Colon Cleanse at this point:

      To begin, the shipping of the package is very fast and also it was super easy to order the Digest It Colon Cleanse on the net. The site is very user friendly and unlike many websites with ridiculous claims, inside the Digest It Colon Cleanse website you can understand precisely what you're going to get, how much it will cost you and exactly how the Digest It Colon Cleanse product works.

      Something else that I really like and is extremely important for me is that the Digest It Colon Cleanse is purely natural and completely safe to use and unlike similar Colon Cleanse products on the market you can learn and read about all of the ingredients of Digest It on the official site, they just don't hide anything from their users.

      The last thing which I like about the Digest It Colon Cleanse product so far is that it is sold with complete money-back guarantee so if you're not satisfied with it you are able to send it back to them and get all of your money back. From what I know many companies don't offer you any refund guarantee at all, so this is with no doubt a huge advantage.

      In general, It is too early for me to tell how powerful the product is, even so I believe that I made a very good deal. It seems that the Digest It Colon Cleanse solution is extremely popular for a good reason and the full refund policy makes it very reasonable deal and in fact anyone can try the Digest It Colon Cleanse product without any risk at all.

      P.S., if you like to get about 40% discount from the original price level and to get the this Colon Cleanse product for a special price, then listed below is one link that I have found On Youtube which could be used to purchase the Digest It Colon Cleanse for the cheapest price on the web.

      I hope that it helps all the best!

  33. QUESTION:
    What steps do you take in The Acai Berry Colon Cleanse Diet?
    Can someone tell me there regime on how do this like do you take 2 pills a day or something or 1 pill this week and another the Next can someone please tell me thank you !

    • ANSWER:
      Diet pills are medications that change one of the main functions of the body - weight regulation, by changing how much we feel like eating or how fast we absorb the food we eat or how fast we burn the energy in our body. Diet pills have side effects. So they are only recommended when combined the benefits of losing weight are much more than the side effects. The proper way to lose weight is by dieting and exercising.

      One of these such pills is Acai Noni Burner. This pill is consisted of the Acai Berry and Hawaiian Noni plants. Some of the reported results from this supplement include increased energy, regulated appetites, and of course some weight loss.

      Excess fat in the body is not healthy at all. It is often the cause of many health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure. Obesity is caused by excessive fat, which is a major problem in many countries. Sometimes it also increases the chances of heart attacks and strokes.

      The main goal of Acai Noni Burner is to reduce fat in the body. This is done in many different ways. The first way is through the acai extract which is an antioxidant and flushes excess waste from the body. The green tea extracts boost the metabolism which burns more fat, and Noni is a energy booster. Also, it is to be remembered that this pill does not contain anything harmful like Ephedra which is partially banned in the US by the FDA.

      Some pills contain caffeine that increases the rate at which we burn calories. Some pills contain Gingseng, which reduces the appetite, causing you to eat less. Pills containing Pyruvate helps digest glucose and increases the body's metabolism rate, thus burning more calories and reducing fat. There are many other diet pills such as - Zingseng, Gurana , Fenfluramine , HCA (made from the extract of Garcinia Cambogia), etc.

      After this Acai Noni Burner review, you should be able to make a smart decision when it comes to your weight loss options. If you are exercising regulary and eating a clean diet than using a supplement can help. There are a lot on the market so make sure you know which one's right for you and it can work wonders for you.

      Check my source, it gives you a 14 DAYS FREE TRIAL of Acai Noni, so you can try it for yourself.

      Good luck!

    I know that this is weird that I am a guy and asking this question, but it is terrible and gets to the point where people question my amount of sleep everyday or that they claim that I look stoned or high. I dont do drugs and I get plenty of sleep. About 9-10 hours a day. I am 15 and please dont answer with just wear make up.

    • 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.

Kidney Liver Flush

Chanca piedra - supporting kidney functionKidney makes up the urinary system of the body, along with the bladder, the urethra and two ureters. The bean-shaped kidney balances blood composition and regulates the fluid amount in the body. Along with cleaning of the blood, Kidney has an important function to pass urine. Kidney filters blood and passes waste substances and toxins as urine through the uterus to the bladder. Urine is composed of 95% of water, 2.5% of minerals and salt and 2.5% of urea. Chanca piedra's diuretic effect helps kidney to produce and increase the flow of urine, when you drink plenty of pure water with this healing tea. It also acts as a laxative. This helps best possible flow of fluids. It also contains number of organic acids. After ingestion it passes through the kidney and filtered by the glomerule, preventing its re-absorption. It has alkaloids, which after its ingestion smoothes urinary muscle relaxation further facilitating the kidney or bladder expulsion.Chanca piedra's strong effect on root cause of kidney stoneKidney stones and gall stones are very common, and they cause severe pain in your side and back of the body.

A clinical study showed that this healing herb has breaking effect on calcium oxalate crystal formation, from which kidney stones are building up. It has chemicals that keep crystals of calcium, from entering cells of kidney. It has property to inhibit formation of calcium-oxalate crystals, which causes kidney stones. In this case, it helps to stop root cause of this painful disease. The inhibiting effect of chance piedra on re-formation of calcium-oxalate crystals brings you out of the cycle of kidney problems. This important property of the breaking stone herb helps considerably to people with history of kidney problems to gain proper health.It is proved to be a strong antispasmodic, which prevents muscle spasms.

Amount of the magnesium helps to dissolve the stones and vitamin B6 will reduce level of acid in the urine. Vitamin B6 also enhances emission of calcium oxalate.It helps to lower high blood pressure, a disease which affects kidney badly. Raising the level of salt in blood creates a chemical reaction that raises formation of Enzyme angiotensim II in kidney. The enzyme angotensin II in the blood is known to cause arteries' wall to constrict, resulting into high blood pressure. Scientists from Japan found a compound in this herb which slows down kidney making the enzyme angiotensin II.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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.

    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.

  3. QUESTION:
    Can drinking to much alcohol cause a stinging pain when urinating?
    I drink maybe about 6-8 pub measures worth of home made alcohol probably about 40-45% on an allmost nightly bacis and a couple pints of Ale 5%. could this have damaged my kidney/liver and so cause me pain when pissin, i have a stinging burning sensation each time i piss, Its not an STI i know that i just want to know if it is the alcohol causing it

  4. QUESTION:
    Is it necessary to provide intravenous fluids to a 6 month old male cat when being neutered?
    The vet charges extra for the use of intravenous fluids, saying that it helps to keep the kidneys and liver hydrated.

    My boyfriend thinks that this procedure is useless and that the vet is only trying to make money off his clients.He thinks all vets are scammers. lol

    • ANSWER:
      I think it's a good idea to err on the cautious side and give the fluids. It's pretty standard at vet hospitals. Not only does it flush the organs during anestesia it also helps the cat recover far far quicker from the after effects.

      It's true that many clinics/vets don't offer it... but that's because clients (like your BF) think they are trying to scam them... when really they are only looking out for the cat's delicate kidneys and other vital organs. Furthermore, most pet parents are either cheap and want to spend the least money possible... or they just don't understand the benefits so they immeadiatly assume the vet is trying to jack them.

      I always REQUEST fluids during any procedure that needs the cat to be under for so that they recover quicker will less after effects.

  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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    Inside of my sides where my kidneys are also my liver has been hurting for almost the passed 4 days...i cant even sit up or lay down without it hurting...its like the pain you get after walking up a long hill...do you know whats wrong?

    • ANSWER:
      Probably a kidney infection, go see a doctor, drink lots of water to flush them out

  12. QUESTION:
    Should I be worried about urine that is as clear as water?
    I recently started a round of antibiotics to treat a UTI. Well now my urine is crystal clear. Like not even a hint of yellow. I understand normally that might mean I'm well hydrated, but I'm not drinking any more water than usual. Could this mean my kidney or liver is having problems with the antibiotic? It's cipro as I'm allergic to penicillin. So it's a strong one.

    • ANSWER:
      Water is clear so if you are releasing clear water you are in good health. The clearer your urine is the healthier your kidneys and system is. The darker urine is more consentrated and full of toxins that can harm you so you should always be drinking enough water daily to keep your urine clear colored. The FDA says 6 to 8 - 8 oz glasses a day which is cups of water. That is actually the minimum that the body needs to function normally. Truth be told you need half your weight in ounces of water a day to be fully fit. Your brain uses the most water of all organs. In the morning when you wake up it automatically needs at least two cups to start the day off. If you do not give it that in the morning it will rob water from other tissues to get it. If you do not feed your body the necessary water during the day the brain will also rob other tissue to get the water it needs to stay alive. Cute huh. Water means just that. If you add coffee or tea or other fruit to the water the body will processs it as food and not water. The fluid will give you clearer urine but it won't serve the tissues as well and can lead to sickness over time and quicker aging. Just food for thought. Drink Water. Also, any antibiotic will also destroy the good bacteria in your system. It kills bacteria but it doesn't choose just the bad bacteria so do your body a favor and whenever you are on antibiotics eat something with live active bacteria cultures in it like yogurt. One yogurt a day will restore the good bacteria in you. PS. Water is the number one way to flush your kidneys and liver of their impurities and keep you healthy so drink it. Go to the two websites below and learn more.

  13. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have a way to clean the colon and liver out ?
    I have high cholesterol and One side effect is now I have high b/p.
    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.

  14. QUESTION:
    How do you do a liver/kidney flush? Why is this helpful and at what time should you do this?

    you said it purges your body of toxins?
    does it have anything to do wit blood flow?

    • ANSWER:
      Hmm, I've heard'flushes' aren't useful so...
      I just read this book about fasting from a doctor and it (of course) said fasting was the only way to really purge your body of toxins.

  15. QUESTION:
    Can protein shake or any kind protein cause bad kidney?
    Can protein shake or any kind protein cause bad kidney? I know some friend check his blood it didn't turn out good. Please anyone help me cause I go to gym too and I need to drink protein shake oh and start tomorrow i want to decrease the powder protein shake.

    • ANSWER:
      Nobody "needs" to drink protein shakes. That's just what the manufacturers want you to think. protein shakes don't "grow muscle". Hormone does that, using proteins (from ANY source). Shakes are SUPPLEMENTS. That means "In addition to real food". Not instead of. They "supplement" your level of protein.. but only when you need more. Your body does not store protein like it does vitamins.

      Too much protein can be bad for your liver and kidneys, - yes, eventually. But you would need to be in ketosis, or 300-400% more then you need on a daily basis. And in that case -- you would get large in (body fat) more then anything. The calories in unused protein nutrients get stored. The rest get's flushed when you pee. Proteins also require carbohydrates and fats to get the full benefit. Something the manufacturers "forgot" to mention also.

  16. QUESTION:
    Detoxing my body before I start a whole new lifestyle?
    My phone has an app that gives me a number of different diets. One of them is a 3 day detox, it's eating about 900 calories a day for 3 days. Is this safe to do before I start my new lifestyle of retraining myself to eat properly? I'd really like to flush my system and start over before I start.

    • ANSWER:
      The good news is that you really don't need to flush your system or detoxify your body before you embark on a new lifestyle. You already own some of the most effective filters known, in the form of your liver and kidneys. Despite the hype, your colon is not chock full of gunk and you are not a walking bag of toxins. Things that don't belong in the body are filtered out by the kidneys and livers, if they are even absorbed at all. All you have to do is simply start eating properly, and trust your body to do what it does best. A 900 calorie diet wouldn't necessarily hurt you, but it would not provide you with the best nutrients, nor the calories your body needed to operate at optimum levels. But skip on all those detox preps and the odd diet combos, because they really don't work. At best, they do nothing except leave you hungry. Most are fancy laxatives, which simply cause diarrhea. Diarrhea isn't a friend of anyone, and actually upsets the body a lot more than anything else. Your system doesn't need flushing, honestly. Just start your new routines, and you'll see the results without having to torture your body at all.

  17. QUESTION:
    I just wanted to know what types of foods or drinks are healthy for your liver and kidneys?
    I've been recently coming off of drinking and would want to know what would help my liver and kidneys out.

    • ANSWER:
      lots and lots of good water to flush out toxins

  18. QUESTION:
    What are the best laxatives on the market?
    I'm doing a cleanse that requires a salt water flush daily. I tried it last night and it was terrible! I felt extremely sick and nauseous for an hour or more and almost threw up. I don't think I could take that everyday for the next 10 days. Lol anyone know any good store bought laxatives?

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

  19. QUESTION:
    How can gallstones be removed from a retracted gallbladder?
    My friend was diagnosed with a gallstones and advised to undergo surgery. Her gallbladder was found to be retracted. She tried doing the flush diet to remove the stones. Should she stop the diet and gor for surgery instead?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Temitz

      Not sure what diet shes trying, but the cleansing plan at herbdoc.com helped my uncle and his gallstones. He was cleared in 6 days and hasnt had an issue in almost 4 years.

      Remember if you dont change the diet and cleanse the sytstem (colon, liver, kidney cleanse) they will come back.

      Cause
      Toxins overloading into your system from chemicals, additives, processed and junk foods, as well as excessive saturated animal fat in the diet, contribute to gallbladder problems. If the liver becomes overloaded with excess saturated fats, the gallbladder gets stressed and inflamed. This excess of saturated fats become cholesterol deposits and when enough have formed, they crystallize with the bile to form gallstones.

      Women get gallstones four times as frequently as men, especially women over 40 years old who are fair-skinned, and overweight. Twenty percent of adults over 65 years of age get gallstones that create problems and pain. Over half a million surgeries are performed each year to remove gallbladders due to gallbladder disorders, the most common being gallstones.

      Constipation, food allergies (especially to milk products and eggs), digestive disorders (especially caused by a deficiency of hydrochloric acid), intestinal diseases, an excessively low-fiber diet, dental disturbances, parasites, rapid weight loss, and stress can all cause or contribute to gall stones and other gallbladder disorders. For lasting relief of symptoms, all of these factors must be addressed if they are present.

      Best of health to both of you

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

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

  22. QUESTION:
    Can I safely drink a gallon of distilled water per day?
    I am doing this to clear up my face and lose weight. But is it safe? I know that some ppl think distilled water is harmful b/c it does not have ions. Also, will that amount of water flush out my kidneys and liver of bacteria it needs? Please help, Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a nurse. You can kill yourself. You can flush your electrolytes out of your body. You need them to survive and that's not good. I would drink the water but limit it to only 8 glasses maybe less a day.

  23. QUESTION:
    Why do my cheeks turn red when I drink a glass of wine?
    This doesn't happen when I drink a mixed drink or other kinds of drinks. It happens when I drink a glass of wine. Sometimes my entire face turns flushed. I find it embarassing. Is there anything I can do to enjoy a glass of wine without the embarrassment of a flushed face?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are asian, this might be helpful to you:

      The cause of this "wine flush" has to do with how many Asians metabolize alchohol. Alchohol is absorbed through the stomach and small intestine. About 10 percent is eliminated by the kidneys, lungs, and sweat glands, but the rest is dealt with in the liver by two enzymes: alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH). I don't know enough about the body's chemistry to know how these two enzymes actually manage to break down the alchohol, but it's enough to know that they do.

      It's this second enzyme (ALDH) that is missing (or low) in up to 50 percent of Asian people, and is not present at all in most Native Americans and Inuits. People with less ALDH will often flush and sweat after drinking alcohol, and if their quantities of the enzyme are quite low, they may also become ill after drinking even small amounts of booze.

      Recent studies also suggest women have fewer of these enzymes than men.

      The wine flush ranges from a light pink to a deep red purple in my experience, and for many it's embarrassing, which is why my ears perked up the other day when an Asian colleague at work claimed to have a cure for it.

      Fix: Taking a Pepcid AC tablet before or during drinking, significantly reduced or even eliminated the wine flush. After a few highly scientific tests, we have found that it really does work. How it works is a mystery that won't be solved here. Pepcid AC contains Famotidine. According to DrugDigest.org, "Famotidine is a histamine-2 receptor blocker, or H2-blocker. It works in the stomach on a pump that releases hydrochloric acid when stimulated by histamine. Famotidine prevents histamine from stimulating this pump, thereby reducing the amount of acid that is released into the stomach." What I don't know, is how the level of acid in the stomach correlates to ALDH levels and alchohol metabolism.

  24. QUESTION:
    Can a dog pull through kidney failer?
    I have a 6 year old Caviler King Charles Spaniel with kidney failer, he stopped over night in the vets with a drip to clear out the toxins from his kidney. They rang this morning to tell us that his bloods only came slightly and that its not looking good for him. Dose he still have a chance? :( :(
    thanks everyone for your support but hes getting put down tomorrow.

    • ANSWER:
      I've lost 3 to Chronic Renal Failure over the years and each case was different. One was gone inside a couple of weeks and one managed with the condition for 18 months. Everything depends on how badly the kidneys are damaged - and they do not self-repair like the liver.

      If your dog only just got acute renal failure then it is possible that with the cause removed he may still be able to cope with residual kidney function.

      Sadly it is not a very nice way to die, you only need to speak with human kidney sufferers where there is no treatment. As the levels of toxins build up in your dog's system he will start to feel like he has a bad case of the flu plus nausea and stomach pains all the time. Your vet may allow you to give subcutaneous injections to flush the kidneys at home (more usual for people in the USA), this will temporarily make him feel a little better but it won't be long before he needs it again.
      Your dog will likely go totally off eating food and there will be maybe 3 weeks before the kidneys fail totally meaning that the dog can no longer regulate fluids and his quality of life will be virtually nil. At this stage they usually start to get seizures, eventually they will go into mulptiple organ failure and die as a result. I let my 3 dogs go before the seizure phase started and while they still had some quality of life; I consider keeping them longer to be very mean with that nasty disease.

      So... vet treatment should concentrate of taking the pressure off the kidneys and making the dog feel better: Flush the kidneys with sub-q's, give Calcitrol to help normalise the Calcium/Phosphorus ratio, give Azodlyl http://www.1800petmeds.com/Azodyl-prod10986.html (if available where you are), give anti-emetics, give Sucralfate/Antepsin too soothe the inflamed stomach and Omeprazole to moderate acid production. You can see this is a very complicated balancing act.

      Feed your dog what the vet says is good for as long as he will eat it, then feed anything he will take. Once he stops eating totally it is time to think about saying goodbye.

  25. QUESTION:
    What are the best kidney and liver tonics?
    Please list them, their full name, and their benefits.

    • ANSWER:
      the best detoxifier for the kidneys is unsweetened cranberry juice. It neutralizes the acidic balance in the kidneys and binds itself to bad bacteria and then the bad bacteria gets flushed from the system with it.

      Do not know of a liver tonic. I know you can aid the health of your liver by not drinking alcoholic beverages and by not injesting chocolate...two things which are banned when you do have liver problems or hepatitis.

  26. QUESTION:
    If I cut fat out of my diet will my liver metabolise the fat in my body?
    Is the liver constantly metabolising fats .

    • ANSWER:
      In the liver, bile is formed, and flows from the liver through
      tube like structures...known as ducts...to the intestines to
      break down fat that we eat. There are different kinds
      of fats in the body that come to the liver in the blood,
      these are cholesterol and triglycerides. Cholesterol is
      needed in certain amounts in the body to build new cells
      membranes. Our old cells die off and then new ones are
      developed. Triglycerides are usually there to be stored
      as fats in our body. They are broken down by the liver
      and used as energy for the body when we don't eat enough
      foods that we need for energy for the cells...like proteins,
      glucose, and fats. So the answer to your questions is yes. The liver is constantly metabolizing fats, as we need them.
      Certain fats are good for the body and other are not.
      Most doctors will tell you not to totally cut out all fats
      from the diet because certain ones are needed...as
      you see above. However, people are placed on diets
      if these levels in the blood are too high cause they
      can lead to plaque building up inside our vessels and
      also to having a fatty liver which can lead to inflammation
      inside the liver. It is best to have your levels of fats
      be checked by blood work to see what your levels
      are and see if the doctor recommends you go on this
      type of diet. Some people who are on cholesterol diets,
      need to remember to drink more fluids as the cholesterol
      leaving the body through the kidneys can develop into
      stones...not to drink an excess amount, but enough to
      flush out the kidneys during this time.

      I hope this information is of some help to you.

  27. 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.

  28. QUESTION:
    Where can I get medical information about causes of lowered creatin/creatine levels?
    A family member is in drug court. After 6 months of good urine tests, low creatin levels are showing up and they say that is because the person is "flushing". What are other reasons the levels could be lower?

    • ANSWER:
      Low blood creatinine levels can indicate a decrease in muscle mass caused by a disease, such as muscular dystrophy, or by aging. Low levels can also indicate some types of severe liver disease or a diet very low in protein. Pregnancy can also cause low blood creatinine levels.

      Low creatinine clearance results indicate serious kidney damage. Kidney damage can be due to conditions such as a life-threatening infection, shock, cancer, reduced blood flow to the kidneys, or urinary tract blockage. Other conditions, such as heart failure, dehydration, and liver disease (cirrhosis), can also cause low creatinine clearance results.

      A low BUN-to-creatinine ratio may be associated with a diet low in protein, a severe muscle injury called rhabdomyolysis, pregnancy, cirrhosis, or syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). SIADH sometimes occurs with lung disease, cancer, diseases of the central nervous system, and the use of certain medications.

  29. QUESTION:
    Going to stop drinking as much, how can i flush my system out?
    Well i've decided that i'm going to stop drinking alcohol as much as i used to and only do it on special occasions. So basically, I'm looking to almost like flush my system as you would with a detox but without the diet. Any ideas?

    • 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.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the amount of protein the body can pass safely through the liver as liquid?
    During a "cutting" phase (concerning bodybuilding) what is a ballpark maximum amount of protein that is safe that comes from liquid sources, ie; protein shakes as opposed to solid proteins such as lean chicken, beans, et cetera?
    I guess my question should have been is it safe to get around 75% of my protein from liquid or is that too hard on the body? Thanks so much

    • ANSWER:
      All food sources break down into "liquid" form once they pass through the stomach into the small intestine. The nutrients are then carried through your blood steam. Proteins pass through the liver. They aren't "stored" like vitamins. The circulate around the blood stream getting absorbed by anything that requires them for growth (muscle, hair, skin, fingernails, etc). They get filtered out when they reach the kidneys. At this point, the calorie is split off from the protein and is stored as body fat. The rest of the nutrient gets flushed down the toilet.

      Protein shakes are FAST absorbing, but also FAST moving too. It's a use it or lose it. If yoru not working your muscles hard - they wont absorb the nutrient and get flushed.

      Rule of thumb is 1g per lb of lean mass, but since the average body has a floating point number of how much get's absorbed, you could be only needing 60g per day, or 150g per day. That's not somethintg you can tell. But overdoing protien DOES NOT build bigger muscles. Hard work, and the NEED for bigger muscles (thus more protein absorbtion) does.

  32. QUESTION:
    What do pain pills do to your cardio?
    I train in MMA (not that good, just enjoy it), and sometimes you get pretty sore and endure some pain. Do prescription pain pills, or even just over-the-counter medicines have detrimental effects on your cardio? I ask because I have heard that your body actually goes into "detox" mode to flush them out, which then slows you down. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      If you use them sporadically.. (not very often) -- Then regardless of the medication.. no, it will not effect any part of your body if you are other wise healthy.

      Now, for more chronic use.. it goes something like this:

      For all pain relievers , if used more than once every 10-14 days, there are quite a few theories in the scientific community that support the idea that your pain threshold is lowered due to the use. Especially of narcotic pain relievers.. ie: Opiates -- e.g.: Lortab, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Codeine, etc.

      Now Over the counter painkillers, Ibuprofen, Tylenol/apap, Naproxen Sodium, etc -- the thresh-hold lowering theory is not nearly as pronounced.

      Here are the only dangers to your body:

      If you use OTC painkillers daily, or most days of the week -- keep it at a limit of 2000mg's maximum per day. If you use it sporadically, keep the limit at 4000mg's for that one day you need it. (This is in a 24hour period, not all at once). -- You see, OTC painkillers are metabolized hepatically and renally. So your kidneys and liver are effected. If you take them constantly, and exceed this general guideline the chance for causing trouble in these 3 organs go up considerably. So just use common sense, and exercise caution. Though, I wouldn't take on the notion that you can't have an Advil or Tylenol every once in a while for sore muscles/bruises etc.

      For prescription painkillers -- anything from Codeine, Hydrocodone to Oxycodone - You want to be especially careful.

      Again, same principle applies: If used very sporadically.. not gonna cause any problems. If used on a regular basis (say a few times a week or even every day) -- Then these WILL cause a dependency in your body.. and have a high profile to cause addiction.

      The dependency is where you've heard the 'detox' and flushing idea from. This would take you , taking something like Lortab, daily, for months on end -- then suddenly stopping to produce this effect.

      I don't think that is your intention at all, so the short of all of this is just use common sense and , no, they will not effect your cardio.

      Hope that made some sense,

  33. QUESTION:
    How do I detox my body?
    I'd like to flush out my body and detox. I've heard there are several ways to do it. I know drinking a ton of water is a way, but I'd like to try any other methods that are safe?

    Suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing and detoxing have absolutely no medical benefit and are 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 toxic plaque we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
      Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does not store toxins of any kind and in fact filters them out of the bloodstream and sends them into the waste stream. Heavy metals and other environmental toxins can if fact concentrate in the liver but this is rare. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys..
      You didn't mention a diet. We can help detox 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.
      Good luck.

  34. QUESTION:
    does drinking water boost your metabolism and help you lose weight?
    i hear water does a lot of things but i mean how much can it do it has no nutritional value or anything...can it actually help you?

    and also how does it make your skin clearer like just flush out toxins? i mean...what does it ACTUALLY do that helps you so much with everything?

    • ANSWER:
      Water helps to lose weight.
      Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat.

      http://weightlossweightloss.blogspot.com/search/label/Water%20Helps%20To%20Lose%20Weight

      The liver's job is to convert the stored fat into energy, this is directly influenced by the amount of water you drink.
      The liver also acts as a backup for the kidney, which needs plenty of water to work properly.The kidneys cannot function properly without enough water.
      When kidneys do not work to full capacity, some of their load is shifted on the liver. But if the liver has to do some of the kidney's work, it cannot do its job. It then can't burn fat quickly or efficiently so weight loss slows down.

      Tips to increase your metabolism

      -----Increase your protein intake : It helps in building muscle tissue. More muscles burn more fat and increases your metabolism.

      -----Eat breakfast everyday : Do not skip breakfast. Breakfast is break the fast that we have done overnight. Skipping breakfast makes your metabolism slower and makes you hungry which you tend to compensate by eating a lot later.

      -----Eat smaller, more frequent meals (eat 4-6 six small meals) - More frequent meals keep your metabolism charged .

      -----Exerecise to fire up your metabolism and burn more calories - Try 30-60 minutes of physical activity a day. It increases your metabolism .

      -----Take the stairs and park your car further away from the shops - You will end up burning more calories.

      -----Interval training - great way to boost metabolism

      ----Eating foods that speed up metabolism -

  35. QUESTION:
    What is the difference between gallstones and kidney stones?

    • ANSWER:
      Gallstones are solid deposits that form in the gallbladder. These gallstones can range from the size of tiny grains to as large as the gallbladder can expand to, possibly as large as a golf ball. Depending on the situation, gallstones will be made of one of two materials. The first, and most common type of gallstone is a cholesterol stone, which is generally a larger, yellow colored stone. The second kind of gallstone is a pigment stone, which is made of bilirubin. A pigment stone is created when the gallbladder is completely full of gallstones and the stones begin to "spill" into the common bile duct of the liver. This will prevent bile, a digestive fluid, from reaching the intestine, which will generally lead to white stool. If no symptoms are present, no medical procedures are necessary if an individual has gallstones. However, if stones begin to spill into the bile duct, this will eventually infect the bile duct and can lead to severe liver problems. Symptoms that go along with gallstones include severe abdominal pain, especially in the upper-right region, nausea and vomiting, jaundice, white stool, and consistent fever.

      Personally, I just had two surgeries done for gallstones, and unfortunately my gallbladder was completely full of stones that were beginning to infect my bile duct. TRUST ME, GALLSTONE ATTACKS ARE VERY PAINFUL.

      As for kidney stones, I am less familiar with the topic, but I do know that the stones are caused when there is a blockage in the urination cycle. This blockage causes urine to settle in the kidney, causing the kidney to swell and infections to start. While the urine is settled in the kidney, it will begin to harden and form a deposit. These deposits are generally made of crystallized sodium and calcium. In the act of passing a kidney stone, which I have heard hurts more than any other health condition, the stone will pass from the kidney into the ureter. This is where the pain comes from. Imagine a tiny, yet very sharp crystal attempting to slide through a very narrow and fragile tube. And sometimes the stones being passed are enormous.

      The best way to prevent both kidney stones and gallstones is to drink a proper amount of fluids everyday. Flushing out the system properly will hep dissolve substances such as calcium and sodium in the urination cycle.

      Anyway, I hope I helped.

  36. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to clean your liver and colin?
    I'm fixing to start dieting and I read that you'll lose more weight.

    • ANSWER:
      Baa Baa is telling you the truth. She is a Nurse.
      Here is a site you might want to look at to confirm this:
      http://www.gihealth.com/newsletter/103/103.html
      This is a "Gastroenterologist site" and it shows that
      some cleansing of the colon done, can change
      the colon to be abnormal.

      Some things they say to do to lose weight is:
      1) eat smaller portions of food more frequently.
      This keeps your metabolism working and
      stablizes the amount of sugar in your body.
      2) drink a full glass of water before eatting.
      3) eat on smaller size plates, that way your
      portions will fill the plate and you won't be
      tempted to get seconds.
      4) remove junk foods from your diet.
      Eat foods that are grown in a garden...instead
      of processed foods.

      To add to what Baa Baa stated...drinking water should
      be done in moderation. It is very good when dieting to
      take in extra fluids (especially water) because it helps
      keep the kidneys flushed out to prevent the development
      of kidney stones. You are not cleaning the kidney...
      you are moving fluids through it to prevent particles from
      accumulating inside of it that can develop into a stone
      formation.

      I hope this has been of some help to you.
      Best wishes

  37. QUESTION:
    Does EXCESS consumption of fruits and vegetables adversely affect a detox?
    Im currently undertaking a detox and am losing a lot weight but im feeling alot better and despite consuming less calories my energy is going up!

    I know its the fundamental principle of a detox to give the liver kidneys gi tract etc a rest when detoxing to let them flush out toxins and catch up on backdated work but i wondering if its possible that increasing my fruit and vege intake to counter weight loss may affect my detox

    • ANSWER:
      Not if your fruits and veggies are organic. Don't continue the detox too long though, you are not getting protein this way, and your health will begin to decline. Begin adding whole grains and legumes to have adequate protein for your tissues, organs, muscles.

  38. QUESTION:
    Has anyone felt 'stitches' on the right side after taking milk thistle and not drinking alcohol?
    I stopped drinking a month ago and started taking milk thistle.
    Nothing felt different until yesterday when I woke up with my usually big distended belly not as big, and slight muscular pains on the right side where the liver is.
    All I can think of is my liver is shrinking and the muscles are unstretching.

    • ANSWER:
      My best advice would be to talk with a naturopath about how to clean your liver. The alcohol has, of course, caused a lot of damage to your liver. A naturopath can tell you just what to take to clean it and help it to heal. The liver is a very strong organ, and it can regenerate, but yours most likely needs some extensive repair.

      I spent many years eating less than healthy foods, taking lots of ibruprophen and sinus medication, and I did drink some in my wild single years. As a result my liver ended up enlarged, painful, and inflamed.

      I first did a colon cleanse and a parasite cleanse, which cleared the way for my liver to begin healing. I then did a liver flush about 5 times, removing thousands of gallstones (cholesterol). At times I felt pain in the area of my liver as some of the larger stones were expelled.

      Around that time, I visited a naturopath, who prescribed some drops for me to take. They were clear and tasteless, like water. I took them for about two months and my liver repaired and began to function normally.

      Now I have no issues with my liver, my colon or my kidneys. I wouldn't suggest you do the liver flush without first getting the advice of a naturopath, because it is possible that a large stone could become lodged in a bile duct and cause you to have to be hospitalized. It has been known to happen in rare instances.

  40. QUESTION:
    How do you know if you have adrenal fatigue?
    There's a lot of talk recently about hypoadrenia and sub-Addison's adrenal insufficiency. Since doctors don't acknowledge this as an actual condition, how do you know if you have it? What are the diagnostic criteria and who's diagnosing it? Is it one of those diseases that you just have to have an "intuition" about? And finally, if there's no way to be sure you have it, how can it be safe to treat it?

    • ANSWER:
      Signs and Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

      Tendency to gain weight and unable to loose it, especially around the waist.
      High frequency of getting the flu and other respiratory diseases and these symptoms tend to last longer than usual.
      Tendency to tremble when under pressure.
      Reduced sex drive.
      Lightheaded when rising from a laying down position.
      Unable to remember things.
      Lack of energy in the mornings and also in the afternoon between 3 to 5 pm.
      Feel better suddenly for a brief period after a meal.
      Often feel tired betweeen 9 - 10 pm, but resist going to bed.
      Need coffee or stimulants to get going in the morning.
      Crave for salty, fatty, and high protein food such as meat and cheese.
      Increase symptoms of PMS for women; period are heavy and then stop, or almost stopped on the 4th day, only to start flow again on the 5th or 6th day.
      Pain in the upper back or neck with no apparent reasons .
      Feels better when stress is relieved, such as on a vacation.
      Difficulties in getting up in the morning
      Lightheaded

      Other signs and symptoms include:

      Mild depression
      Food and or inhalant allergies
      Lethargy and lack of energy
      Increased effort to perform daily tasks
      Decreased ability to handle stress
      Dry and thin skin
      Hypoglycemia
      Low Body Temperature
      Nervousness
      Palpitation
      Unexplained hair loss
      Alternating constipation and diarrhea
      Dyspepsia

      There are test that can be bought to see if you are lacking hormones or if your adrenal function is normal.

      There are many different ways to get rid of adrenal fatigue but I would find out first what aspect is causing it.

      Supplements
      Vitamin C (2,000-4,000 mg/day sustained release) -- best taken with bioflavonoids.
      Vitamin E w/mixed tocopherols (800 IU/day)
      Vitamin B100 Complex
      Niacin (125-150 mg/day) -- as inositol hexaniacinate. (Although it is recommended to use 125-150 mg each day, I have found it very hard to find niacin as inositol hexaniacinate in less than 500 mg. It is okay to take at this level as the body flushes what it doesn't need.)
      Pyridoxine B6 (150 mg/day)
      Pantothenic Acid B5 (1200-1500 mg/day)
      Magnesium Citrate (400-1200 mg) -- I like this best in the powdered form such as in Natural Calm. This form of magnesium makes sure it is absorbed.
      Liquid Trace Minerals -- they have a calming effect
      Free-Form Amino Acids
      Proline (500 mg daily) -- Proline is helpful in rebuilding connective tissues. Weak adrenals are often associated with poor quality connective tissues and whatever helps connective tissues seems to help adrenals as well.
      Adrenal Glandular -- or desiccated adrenal gland is extremely important in the initial phases of adrenal repair since it provides raw materials to support adrenal function. It also contains some important adrenal hormones.

      Herbs
      Rhodiola Rosea -- It enhances memory and concentration. It has been shown to reduce stress-induced fatigue and improve mental performance.
      Ashwagandha -- It has been shown to have a sedating effect on the body and helps to rebuild the digestive and nervous system.
      Eleuthero Root or Siberian Ginseng -- It has been used traditionally to stimulate and nourish the adrenal glands and increases mental alertness. Eleuthero is considered an "adaptogen" which means it can help the body adapt to stress.
      Cordyceps -- This is a Chinese mushroom used for supporting the adrenal gland and can also normalize immune function and support kidney, lung, liver, nervous system and cardiovascular function.

      Hormones
      As for hormones, it is a good idea to be tested and find out what your hormone levels are before supplementing them. This way you'll know exactly what hormones are deficient. The three hormones below are most often supplemented when dealing with adrenal fatigue.

      DHEA - This is a basic adrenal hormone that the adrenals will convert into other hormones. If someone is very deficient in this hormone they may only be able to tolerate a small amount such as 5 mg. The average adult dose ranges between 10 and 25 mg. DHEA will also go on to become sex hormones such as testosterone and estrogen.
      Pregnenolone - This is a precursor to many of the hormones produced by the adrenal glands. It is a raw material that supports basic adrenal function. Pregnenolone is best taken towards the evening but may be taken earlier if it interferes with sleep. The usual dose is 25 mg.
      Progesterone Cream - Progesterone is the building block for many other major hormones such as cortisol, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen. If you are under a lot of stress and your adrenals are pumping out cortisol, your body will use available progesterone. If too much progesterone is used to produce cortisol, like with adrenal fatigue, not enough is produced to make testosterone which is needed for a woman’s healthy libido. I recommend progesterone in the form of a skin cream. Always make sure that it says progesterone USP so you know it's real progesterone.

      Life Style Changes
      Removal of the stressors. This is the most important step. Emotional stressors such as marital, family, relationship, or financial problems needs to be dealt with and normalized.
      Rest and sleep are extremely important. You will need nine hours of sleep and maybe more for a very long time. Also rest after meals, at midmorning and mid-afternoon if possible.
      Gentle walking is beneficial but vigorous exercise depletes the adrenals. Deep breathing and stretching is also beneficial. You should exercise to relax rather than to build muscles or lose weight.
      Replace toxic cleaning products used around the house with natural products. There are natural alternatives available for cleaning. Hair dyes, shampoos, makeup and skin care products need to be replaced with natural versions. Adrenals are stressed by chemicals and so this is very important.
      Detoxification sauna therapy using an infrared sauna will greatly speed up recovery. If you are in adrenal burnout, use the sauna daily for no more than 30 minutes. Once or twice a week is excellent for prevention.

      Diet
      It may benefit you to add salt to your diet, especially upon rising and at least a half-hour before you have the lowest energy of the day. Take 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoonful of sea salt, Celtic salt or sea salt w/kelp powder, in an 8 oz glass of water.

  41. 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

  42. QUESTION:
    What exactly is a colonic and where can you get them done?
    I have heard about colonics, but don't really know the purpose. Can anyone tell me? My mom is 53 and has a colostomy bag already, I don't want to be headed in that direction.

    • ANSWER:
      COLON HYDROTHERAPY COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
      How great! I keep hearing about colonics and how great they are, but I've never been able to find out much about them. Maybe for starters, I should ask what is colonic hydrotherapy ?

      Also known as a "colonic", "colon lavage", colon irrigation", or "high colonic", colonic hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing with water.

      And colon, what is that again ?

      The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract (food carrying passageway extending from the mouth to the anus).

      The colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Its major functions are to eliminate waste and to conserve water. Also, there are bacteria living in the colon which synthesize valuable nutrients such as vitamins "K" and portions of the vitamin "B" complex.

      What is the purpose of having a colonic ?

      Well, waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time, (i.e. impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.), poses several problems. First this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Second, impacted materials impair the colon's ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria- produced vitamins. And finally, a buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, constipation, and the result of these disorders.

      How can I tell if I have toxic material in my colon ?

      This condition is prevalent in all civilized societies, and particularly in the U.K. Common signs include: headaches, backaches, constipation, fatigue, bad breath, body odour, irritability, confusion, skin problems, abdominal gas, bloating, diarrhoea, sciatic pain, and so forth. As you can see, intestinal toxicity is part and parcel of many peoples everyday experience.

      It sounds to me as though intestinal toxicity is a common condition ?

      Yes it is, but toxicity is not limited to just the colon. Toxic material is found throughout the body, particularly in fat tissue, joints, arteries, muscles, liver, etc. Colonics effectively eliminate large quantities of toxic waste, affecting the condition of the entire body.

      But the colon isn't the only organ of elimination, what makes the colonic so important ?

      While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people have experienced throughout history that when they ensure that the colon is cleansed and healed, the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Colonic hydrotherapy has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.

      Okay, it appears to be important to cleanse the colon, but why not use enemas, suppositories or laxatives instead ?

      Well, every thing has its proper place, but those things really aren't substitutes for colonics. Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum (the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon). Usually, one or two pints of water are used to do that. Suppositories are intended to accomplish the same task. Laxatives particularly herbal laxatives, are formulated for various purposes, such as: to undo the effects of temporary constipation, to build up the tone of the colon muscle, etc. But the Rolls Royce of colon cleansing without question is colonic hydrotherapy.

      What makes a colonic so special ?

      In a 45 minute session approximately 15 gallons of water is used to gently flush the colon. Through appropriate use of massage, pressure points, etc., the colon therapist is able to work loose and eliminate far more toxic waste than any other short-term technique.

      What will colonics do to the colon ?

      Specifically, a colonic is used to accomplish the following:

      1. Cleanse the Colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series of treatments. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was intended to. In this very real sense a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.

      2. It Exercises the Colon Muscles: The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves material.

      3. It Reshapes the Colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques of the colon therapist helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.

      4. It Stimulates Reflex Points: Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points colonic stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.

      Are there any additional benefits I might expect from a colonic ?

      Yes, there are several. Working with a skilled therapist a colonic can be a truly enlightening educational process. You will learn to expand your awareness of your body's functioning by including signals from your abdomen, your skin, your face and even from that most taboo of natural products, your elimination's. You will find that you can spot the beginnings of developing conditions through clues from these body regions and functions before they become serious. You can deal with them sooner and more easily than you otherwise might if you waited until they produce effects seen elsewhere in the body. Also, the solar plexus is the emotional centre of the body and the transverse colon passes right through it. If an emotional event is left uncompleted, it often results in physical tension being stored in the solar plexus, which affects all organs of the area, including the colon. This on-going tightening of the colon muscle results in diminished movement of faecal material through the colon, which is experienced as constipation. Not only do colonics alleviate the constipation, they can assist you in creating a fully holistic view of your body's functioning, leading to a better quality of life.

      You've been talking a lot about messed-up colons, and I can certainly relate to some of the signs of toxicity you mentioned. What I would like to know is what are the characteristics of a healthy, well functioning colon ?

      Healthy babies, animals and adults not subjected to the "refinements" of civilization (i.e. aboriginal peoples) have bowel movements shortly after each meal is eaten. So, assuming there is sufficient fibre and water available to the colon, one characteristic is a bowel movement shortly after a meal is eaten. Once the urge to eliminate is honoured by a trip to the toilet, the elimination should be easy and take no more than a few seconds. The stool will be long, large in diameter, light brown in colour, without offensive odour and should float or sink very slowly. When the toilet is flushed, the stool immediately begins breaking apart by the action of water movement. As incredible as this may sound, it is true and commonly experienced in cultures where people live more naturally.

      How can I tell if I would personally benefit from a colonic ?

      Does your colon now exhibit the signs of a well functioning colon ? If not, one or more sessions with a knowledgeable colon therapist may bring you great dividends.

      Okay, it sounds like a colonic may be good for me, but will it be painful ?

      It rarely is. Usually, painful experiences are the result of resistance and tension. A professional colon therapist is skilled at putting you at your ease and minimizing discomfort. Most people actually enjoy the colonic and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter, clean and clear afterward. Sometimes during a colonic, the colon muscles will contract suddenly expelling considerable amounts of liquid and waste into the rectum. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easily tolerated.

      Is it embarrassing to have a colonic ?

      No, you will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honoured. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you are completely covered. Rubber tubing carries clean water in and waste out in a gravity pressured system. The mess and odour sometimes present during an enema simply does not exist with a colonic.

      Is there anything I need to do to get ready for a colonic ?

      Since your abdomen will be massaged it is a good idea to eat or drink lightly in the 2 hours immediately preceding a colonic. Also helpful, but not essential, emptying the rectum with a bowel movement just prior to the colonic saves time and permits more to be accomplished.

      And what can I expect afterwards ?

      Most likely, you'll feel great. Probably you'll feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being. Not infrequently, someone having their first colonic will remark that it was one of the most wonderful experiences of their life. As soon as the colonic is finished you can carry on with daily routine. For some, the colonic may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won't be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. It's also possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few moments following a colonic.

      If colonics are so good, why haven't I heard about them before ?

      In a way, the answer to that is a commentary on our present day lifestyle. Historically, artifacts and records show that people have regularly purified their bodies, including cleansing the colon. Around the turn of the 20th century, the present-day colonic machine was developed, providing a significantly improved method of accomplishing colon cleansing. Up to the late 1920's many doctors had colonic machines in their offices, and machines were found in hospitals as well. Articles dealing with colon health frequently appeared in prestigious medical and scientific journals until the early 1930's. At that time modern man began a 50 year love affair with drugs and surgery. These seemed to offer relatively instant relief for body ailments, resulting in purification and prevention techniques becoming less attractive. Recently, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in using natural approaches for healing the body, and colonics have rapidly been regaining the respectability they have already earned.

      Are colonics dangerous in any way ?

      Being an essentially natural process, there is virtually no danger with a colonic. Our intent is to provide a safe and healthy service so that you do not have to worry. Cleaning and sterilization of the necessary equipment is done as normal procedure and clean linen is used for each colonic as well.

      I'm worried that I could become dependent on colonics. If I have to many, the colon may stop functioning on its own. Are colonics habit forming ?

      The colonic is a tool intended to be used to create a clean and healthy colon. A colon therapist who is dedicated to your health, will encourage you to set a goal of having a well-functioning colon. Our fulfilment comes from assisting you in healing your colon, not in making you dependent upon colonics. Actually, one of its features is that a colonic can be used to tonify the colon muscle so that the colon doesn't perform so sluggishly. Many people have sluggish colons. It may take days for bowel movements to return after a good colonic. This is when people think they are becoming "dependent" on colonics. One good colonic is worth 20 or so regular bowel movements, so it may take some time for faecal material to build up in the colon once again if one has a sluggish colon. When the colon is sluggish and bowel movements do not return for a few days after one colonic, it is an indication that extensive colon work is needed to remove the debris that the bowel has built up over the years. This build up of faecal material has decreased the muscular action in the colon. Once a series of colonics is completed , the colon will begin to function like Mother Nature intended. Colonics give you a feeling of being lighter, cleaner and healthier with a sense of well-being. Cleansing and building programs offer preventative measures so that you can be in control of your own health. Dietary changes may be necessary to ensure long lasting and vital health.

      Will a colonic make me constipated or give me diarrhoea ?

      The most frequent post-colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following a colonic. However this is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the colon, and should be interpreted as an indication that the colon requires strengthening and healing. Very infrequently diarrhoea or loose bowels may be experienced. This could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon or to the stirring up of toxic waste. If this should occur, it is usually of very short duration. However, since severe diarrhoea dehydrates the body, it must be carefully monitored.

      Suppose I have been suffering from constipation for a long time, will colonics help ?

      We want to state that constipation can be successfully treated with natural, harmless techniques, including the use of colonics. Constipation is one of what may be termed "civilized man's diseases". There are three factors involved in having a well functioning colon: diet, exercise and attitude. All three must be in balance for the colon to function well. Often, however, because the colon has been sluggish for so long, it has become severely weakened due to being constantly bathed in toxic waste, stretched from holding excessive amount of stools, and frequently, constricted by chronic tension in the colon. The process of colonic hydrotherapy is excellent for cleansing and healing the colon sufficiently so that changes in diet, exercise, and attitude are then able to produce their effects. Many people find the relief provided by colonics stimulates the motivation and enthusiasm to institute positive changes in their lifestyle.

      Some people say that colonics wash out intestinal flora and valuable nutrients. Is this so ?

      The truth is that the washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine, increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment which has been washed free of putrefaction and its accompanying harmful bacteria. This is why the intestines of a new born baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. Each time you clean out the putrefying rubbish and make a better environment for the good flora, they start to multiply immediately in their natural media. It also stands to reason that valuable nutrients can better be absorbed in a clean environment than in a putrefied one.

      With all this talk of bacteria, I wonder what effect colonic hydrotherapy has on our immune systems ?

      The removal of stagnant waste material and hardened, impacted toxic residue could rejuvenate the immune tissue that resides in the intestines. Recent European studies speculate that 80% of immune tissue resides in the intestines. This is much higher than previously thought and makes it logical to believe that this type of therapy could influence such immune deficiency diseases as M.E. cancer and A.I.D.S. Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure-all, but an important adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of the client.

      How long does a colonic take ?

      Probably 90% of all colonics take about 45 minutes. It could also be shorter or longer than that, based upon the judgement of the therapist and sometimes, the wishes of the client. There will also be about 15 minutes required before the colonic for the therapist to go over your medical history, another 15 minutes should be allowed for changing. On a first colonic you should expect to spend an hour and a half at the clinic.

      Is there a special kind of water used for colonic hydrotherapy ?

      We use highly filtered water, which passes through three seperate filters before being heated to the correct temperature. This kind of water is capable of absorbing and flushing more toxins out of the colon because of its drawing effect on solid particles, chemicals and other matter. Tap water is not used because it already has numerous chemicals and inorganic substances present.

      Will it be okay to eat after having a colonic ?

      We suggest that you eat at your normal meal time, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Just as it doesn't make sense to have you car cleaned and then immediately drive it through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a colonic isn't an intelligent choice. Salads, vegetable soups or broths, fruit, or juices are the best choice.

      Will one colonic completely empty the colon ?

      Almost never. Firstly, many of us have a considerable amount of impacted faeces in our colon. This is hardened, rubbery or wallpaper like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. Secondly, there is a subtle learning process involved in receiving colonics. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learns how to allow the cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into that process, and therefore more material is released. One colonic will remove some of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more. How many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal objectives.

      How will I know when the colon is empty ?

      It will probably never be completely empty, as its an organ in continuous use. As more of the old impacted material is released you will actually feel the water enter higher regions of the colon without any sense of obstruction. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well functioning colon.

      Will a colonic clear up my skin ?

      Your skin actually "breathes" and is an important organ of elimination of waste material. Sometimes, if the colon, liver or kidneys are functioning poorly, the skin will be required to make up the difference. Surface eruptions on the skin of various sorts may occur due to toxins being released. Cleansing and healing the colon diminishes the burden placed upon the skin as well as the other organs of elimination: lungs, liver and kidneys. As elimination is accomplished through its proper channels, the skin will very often clear up.

      How expensive is a colonic ?

      This varies dependant upon location etc. Although cost is obviously relevant, far more important is your health. A knowledgeable colon therapist can help you on the road to vital health.

  44. QUESTION:
    Ideas for good diet for a guy to reduce body fat but maintain fat free mass for gym training?
    My body fat % has stayed at 22.5% for over six months despite putting on over 2 kilos of fat free mass (bad uh!). Need some good advice to get the diet sorted.

    • ANSWER:
      The food(diet liquids or solids) that we consume daily form lectins .

      Thus selecting Proper food can help lose or Gain weight .

      http://www.diskovery.co.in/how_to_loose_weight__how_to_gain_weight

      Foods agglutinate the cells of certain blood types (in a way similar to rejection) but not others, meaning that a food which may be harmful to the cells of one blood type may be beneficial to the cells of another.

      -Lectins: The Diet Connection.-
      A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods that you eat. This reaction is part of your genetic inheritance. It is amazing but true that today, in the late twentieth century, your immune and digestive systems still maintain a favouritism for foods that your blood type ancestors ate.

      We know this because of a factor called lectins. Lectins, abundant and diverse proteins found in foods, have agglutinating properties that affect your blood. Lectins are a powerful way for organisms to attach themselves to other organisms in nature. Lots of germs, and even our own immune systems, used this super-glue to their benefit.

      For example, cells in our liver's bile ducts have lectins on their surfaces to help them snatch up bacteria and parasites. Bacteria and other microbes have lectins on their surfaces, as well, which work rather like suction cups, so they can attach to the slippery mucousal linings of the body. Often, the lectins used by viruses or bacteria can be blood type specific, making them a stickier pest for a person of that blood type.

      So, too, with the lectins in food. When you eat a food containing protein lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the lectins target an organ or bodily system (kidney, liver, brain, stomach, etc.) and begin to agglutinate blood cells in that area.

      Find out how you can loose or Gain weight and stay healthy by following blood group Diet .

      The dynamics of weight loss are related to the changes your body makes when you follow your genetically tailored diet. There are two factors.
      1) First, as your body makes the dramatic shift of eliminating foods that are poorly digested or toxic, the first thing it does is try flush out the toxins that are already there.
      Those toxins are mainly deposited in the fat tissue, so the process of eliminating toxins also means eliminating fat.
      2) The second factor is the effects that specific foods have on the bodily systems that control weight. Depending on your blood type, the lectin activity of certain foods may do the following:
      __ Interfere with the digestive process.
      __ Slow down the rate of food metabolism, so you don't efficiently burn calories
      for energy.
      __ Compromise the production of insulin.
      __ Upset the hormonal balance, causing water retention (oedema), thyroid
      disorders and other problems.

      Our blood contains aeons of genetic memory--bits and pieces of specific programming, passed on from our ancestors in codes we are still attempting to comprehend. One such code rests within our blood type. Perhaps it is the most important code we can decipher in our attempt to unravel the mysteries of blood and its vital role in
      our existence.

      __ When you use the individualized characteristics of your blood type as a guide for eating and living you will be healthier, you will easily reach your ideal weight and you will slow the process of ageing.

      __ Your blood type is a more reliable measure of your identity than race, culture or geography. It is a genetic blueprint for who you are, a guide to how you can live most fully.

  45. QUESTION:
    How long will marijuana be in my system?
    I weigh 125 pounds. Im skinny. I walk alot and have a fast metabolism. How long will it take if i drink alot of water everyday?

    • ANSWER:
      In your system or in your pee? In your Pee, about 1 week if you drink lots of water. Only 1 hour if you drink lots of water and natural herds you buy at Head shops. These somewhat flush your kidneys, liver and bladder and pee clean ( like for a drug test). In your System is dif. You basically have a toxin in your body and depending on so many factors, you body will get rid of this toxin. It's not just in your urinary track.

  46. QUESTION:
    Anybody ever tried some home made body cleanses?
    I want a cleanser I can use at home to flush me out a little. Any ideas. I hear they assist with weightloss.

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing you can do is change you diet for a minimum of 6 weeks. This is where the original idea of liver cleansing and detoxing came from - just a diet that is easy on your body and maximises the health and therefore performance of your liver and kidneys, which are primarily responsible for "cleansing".

      You can get plenty of details from Metagenics or books by Dr Sandra Cabot, or perhaps see a Naturopath. But this is the basics -

      - No dairy, although small amounts of butter and yoghurt are okay
      - No gluten, which means for grains stick to rice
      - Try for organic food, where possible
      - No red meat or deli meats
      - Of protein use chicken or turkey, fish (not tuna), chickpeas and almonds
      - No heavily processed foods - exclude most canned goods, frozen foods and dried fruits
      - No alcohol, no cigarettes, no caffeine (green tea has caffeine)
      - Plenty of water, best is water that has been boiled within 3 or 4 hours
      - Lentils, peanuts, potatoes and bananas are out
      - Keep fruit to 3 pieces a day
      - Eat as much fresh vegetables as you like, excepting root vegetables. Make sure you include plenty of green leafy ones.
      - For snacks, sunflower seeds, mung beans or sprouts, and almonds are great.

      Most people using this diet will lose weight. You will find you have more energy, and crappy foods will be less tempting.

  47. QUESTION:
    What are some ways to detoxify your body without chemicals?
    I'm not doing any of that chemical cleanser or enema stuff. What are some other ways to detoxify? I've be drinking distilled water, which seems to work great.

    • ANSWER:
      The amino acid cysteine bonds with heavy metals, so adding cysteine to your diet as a supplement or as a food is a very good idea. The wiki entry has a listing of different foods that contain higher levels of cysteine (eggs are a personal favorite of mine, for instance - good sources of protein, good source of nutrition, taste great).

      Without water you can't flush anything out, so drink lots of water. Sweating, preferably through excercise, and urination are the only ways you can "flush" anything out of your system (in the way that you mean flush).

      Most chemical cleansers are combinations of different herbs that have diuretic properties. If you consume an herb that makes your urinate more, you will drink more water. Ergo, the flush. That said, why not just drink water? You're on the right track, there. Herbs are drugs, and you should be careful about what drugs you put into your body. Just because they're natural doesn't mean they're safe. Caffeine is a diuretic - drink some coffee or an energy drink if you need that kind've thing.

      Water doesn't have to be distilled - as long as its reasonably clean you're okay. Your body has built in purifiers (liver, kidneys, etc), and they can handle some trace elements and a bit of salt in your water.

      Enemas are a waste of time, as far as "cleansing" or "flushing" goes.

      EDIT: Do NOT eat 2 cups of nutmeg! WTF are you thinking? This will accelerate your heart, could potentially make you feel like fainting or like your chest is pounding or your heart is in your throaght, you will probably get the sweats.... this is a reallly really really really bad idea. Nutmeg is an herb that is used as a spice, and is to be used carefully when cooking, and certainly not to be used in large quantities!

      Jeez... just be safe, okay? You can purify your body by eating less processed foods (no fast food!), drinking lots of water, getting plenty of good sleep, and excercising at a healthy level for your age and medical condition. There are no silver bullets, no magic compounds that will "do it all" for you, no electroshock therapy treatments at a spa that will "purify" you, it takes some dedication but it can be done.

      There are a lot of people who want to take shortcuts, who don't want to spend the time it takes to do it right. These shortcuts are either ineffective, fraudulent, or dangerous. 'Nuff said.

  48. QUESTION:
    What are the effects of fasting on digestion and over all health?
    I would like the pros and cons of fasting on overall health, but mainly on the digestive system.
    I am refering to a water only fast for a period no longer than 24 hours.

    • ANSWER:
      Fasting and cleansing have the same effect on the body. Our bodies were designed to eat every day. Fasting will result in loss of nutrients and will compromise the immune system.
      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, 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 when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, lean meats, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be. Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      Cleanses and fasts 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!
      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.

  49. QUESTION:
    What is the best most effective colon cleanse weight loss supplement ?
    I always hear of new colon cleansers everywhere I turn, and I want to know where I a could order a free smaple of a colon cleanser online without wasting my time. Also, how are you supposed to use colon cleanser as a weight loss supplement?

    • ANSWER:
      You will definitely lose weight. But it is only the weight of undigested food and waste, not any stored body fat. And it will just be replaced.
      Gastroenterologists repeatedly state this "mucoid plague" promoted by non medical practitioners does not exist. They have yet to find any during a colonoscopy.
      The best way to cleanse and detox is to stop eating and drinking processed and refined foods.
      Get hold of a liver. Oh, you have one? Great.
      Now just stand there and let it detoxify your body. Partner it with some kidneys and you've got the most efficient body cleanse and detox system known to man.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.

      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.

  50. QUESTION:
    When do the results from the master cleanse start showing?
    I am 15 years old, and my weight has been a real problem for me. I am 5'4 and weigh more than 180 pounds. So I have started the master cleanse but so far no resluts. I have not started feeling the urgency to go the bathroom. What should I do? Also drinking a lot of green tea and water and eating less solid food.

    • ANSWER:
      At your age you need nutrition!
      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.

Liver Flush Diet

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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".

  2. 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.

    • 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?

  4. 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.

    • ANSWER:

      Lemon water is just that, freshly squeezed lemon and water.

  6. QUESTION:
    How can gallstones be removed from a retracted gallbladder?
    My friend was diagnosed with a gallstones and advised to undergo surgery. Her gallbladder was found to be retracted. She tried doing the flush diet to remove the stones. Should she stop the diet and gor for surgery instead?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Temitz

      Not sure what diet shes trying, but the cleansing plan at herbdoc.com helped my uncle and his gallstones. He was cleared in 6 days and hasnt had an issue in almost 4 years.

      Remember if you dont change the diet and cleanse the sytstem (colon, liver, kidney cleanse) they will come back.

      Cause
      Toxins overloading into your system from chemicals, additives, processed and junk foods, as well as excessive saturated animal fat in the diet, contribute to gallbladder problems. If the liver becomes overloaded with excess saturated fats, the gallbladder gets stressed and inflamed. This excess of saturated fats become cholesterol deposits and when enough have formed, they crystallize with the bile to form gallstones.

      Women get gallstones four times as frequently as men, especially women over 40 years old who are fair-skinned, and overweight. Twenty percent of adults over 65 years of age get gallstones that create problems and pain. Over half a million surgeries are performed each year to remove gallbladders due to gallbladder disorders, the most common being gallstones.

      Constipation, food allergies (especially to milk products and eggs), digestive disorders (especially caused by a deficiency of hydrochloric acid), intestinal diseases, an excessively low-fiber diet, dental disturbances, parasites, rapid weight loss, and stress can all cause or contribute to gall stones and other gallbladder disorders. For lasting relief of symptoms, all of these factors must be addressed if they are present.

      Best of health to both of you

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  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:
    What is a good diet to follow when trying to lose weight?
    i'm not fat but i have some excess fat that i think i could use losing. with summer around the corner i'm looking to get it off fast! i'm 5' 10'' or 11'' and probably weigh about one fifty or so... i play volleyball two times a week for three hours and almost every other weekend. i try to run everyday but recently i've only been running every other day. i'm just wondering what a good diet is for me. what exactly should i cut out of my diet? what should i look for when deciding what to avoid. thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Losing weight depends not only on exercise but also diet. While you may consider that you are not overeating or eating junk, your diet may still be ineffective for weight loss. This is because over time our liver becomes clogged and its fat burning function diminishes making it very difficult to shed weight. The liver cleansing diet helps to correct this problem by restoring optimal fat burning function to your liver.

      I do this 8 week diet every year to keep my weight even, and I lose 1-2 kg per week without fail. If you can dedicate 8 weeks to changing your eating habits it will work for you. The basics of the diet require that you eliminate all red meat, animal fats, dairy, all processed food and anything containing artificial chemicals and additives. Replace all that with fresh fish/seafood (not fried), some lean chicken, lots of fresh vegetables (raw is better), salads and fruit, wholemeal pasta, bread and rice. If you can make a fresh raw veggie juice every morning then the process will speed up. Drink lots of water to flush through the toxins. If you do this in combination with your workout, you will succeed.

      I've attached some more reading below for a better explanation, including tips, and an example diet plan that I use. I hope you like it. Best wishes.

  12. QUESTION:
    Ideas for good diet for a guy to reduce body fat but maintain fat free mass for gym training?
    My body fat % has stayed at 22.5% for over six months despite putting on over 2 kilos of fat free mass (bad uh!). Need some good advice to get the diet sorted.

    • ANSWER:
      The food(diet liquids or solids) that we consume daily form lectins .

      Thus selecting Proper food can help lose or Gain weight .

      http://www.diskovery.co.in/how_to_loose_weight__how_to_gain_weight

      Foods agglutinate the cells of certain blood types (in a way similar to rejection) but not others, meaning that a food which may be harmful to the cells of one blood type may be beneficial to the cells of another.

      -Lectins: The Diet Connection.-
      A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods that you eat. This reaction is part of your genetic inheritance. It is amazing but true that today, in the late twentieth century, your immune and digestive systems still maintain a favouritism for foods that your blood type ancestors ate.

      We know this because of a factor called lectins. Lectins, abundant and diverse proteins found in foods, have agglutinating properties that affect your blood. Lectins are a powerful way for organisms to attach themselves to other organisms in nature. Lots of germs, and even our own immune systems, used this super-glue to their benefit.

      For example, cells in our liver's bile ducts have lectins on their surfaces to help them snatch up bacteria and parasites. Bacteria and other microbes have lectins on their surfaces, as well, which work rather like suction cups, so they can attach to the slippery mucousal linings of the body. Often, the lectins used by viruses or bacteria can be blood type specific, making them a stickier pest for a person of that blood type.

      So, too, with the lectins in food. When you eat a food containing protein lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the lectins target an organ or bodily system (kidney, liver, brain, stomach, etc.) and begin to agglutinate blood cells in that area.

      Find out how you can loose or Gain weight and stay healthy by following blood group Diet .

      The dynamics of weight loss are related to the changes your body makes when you follow your genetically tailored diet. There are two factors.
      1) First, as your body makes the dramatic shift of eliminating foods that are poorly digested or toxic, the first thing it does is try flush out the toxins that are already there.
      Those toxins are mainly deposited in the fat tissue, so the process of eliminating toxins also means eliminating fat.
      2) The second factor is the effects that specific foods have on the bodily systems that control weight. Depending on your blood type, the lectin activity of certain foods may do the following:
      __ Interfere with the digestive process.
      __ Slow down the rate of food metabolism, so you don't efficiently burn calories
      for energy.
      __ Compromise the production of insulin.
      __ Upset the hormonal balance, causing water retention (oedema), thyroid
      disorders and other problems.

      Our blood contains aeons of genetic memory--bits and pieces of specific programming, passed on from our ancestors in codes we are still attempting to comprehend. One such code rests within our blood type. Perhaps it is the most important code we can decipher in our attempt to unravel the mysteries of blood and its vital role in
      our existence.

      __ When you use the individualized characteristics of your blood type as a guide for eating and living you will be healthier, you will easily reach your ideal weight and you will slow the process of ageing.

      __ Your blood type is a more reliable measure of your identity than race, culture or geography. It is a genetic blueprint for who you are, a guide to how you can live most fully.

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

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

  14. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to clean your liver and colin?
    I'm fixing to start dieting and I read that you'll lose more weight.

    • ANSWER:
      Baa Baa is telling you the truth. She is a Nurse.
      Here is a site you might want to look at to confirm this:
      http://www.gihealth.com/newsletter/103/103.html
      This is a "Gastroenterologist site" and it shows that
      some cleansing of the colon done, can change
      the colon to be abnormal.

      Some things they say to do to lose weight is:
      1) eat smaller portions of food more frequently.
      This keeps your metabolism working and
      stablizes the amount of sugar in your body.
      2) drink a full glass of water before eatting.
      3) eat on smaller size plates, that way your
      portions will fill the plate and you won't be
      tempted to get seconds.
      4) remove junk foods from your diet.
      Eat foods that are grown in a garden...instead
      of processed foods.

      To add to what Baa Baa stated...drinking water should
      be done in moderation. It is very good when dieting to
      take in extra fluids (especially water) because it helps
      keep the kidneys flushed out to prevent the development
      of kidney stones. You are not cleaning the kidney...
      you are moving fluids through it to prevent particles from
      accumulating inside of it that can develop into a stone
      formation.

      I hope this has been of some help to you.
      Best wishes

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    can I substitute something else for the cayenne pepper in the detox diet drink?
    I want to try the Cayenne pepper, lemon, and syrup diet detox drink but I cannot handle anything that's even near to being closely remotely hot. Therefore, can I substitute the cayenne pepper out for something else and still get the same benefits from the drink?? Help please!

    • ANSWER:
      The master cleanse or lemon detox diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You WILL lose weight on this diet. But understand, the only weight you will lose is emptying the digestive system of several days worth of food. Depending on how healthy or unhealthy you are this can add up to 10 pounds or more. Little if any of it will be body fat weight. You will not change your size!
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism). Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxins.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.

  21. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to maintain your weight after the lemon detox diet?
    Do you know anyone who has been successful with the lemon detox diet and maintained it?

    • ANSWER:
      You will gain 10-20 lbs back depending on your size just refilling your digestive system and energy reserves.
      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.

  22. 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

  23. QUESTION:
    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.

  24. QUESTION:
    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.

  25. QUESTION:
    Why do I get a headache after drinking just one alcoholic beverage?
    I enjoy drinking the occasional beer, amaretto sour, margarita, or glass of riesling wine but within a few hours I develop a headache that can only be slept off.

    Otherwise I am a very healthy individual who eats a good diet, does not drink caffeine (I am sensitive), and drinks water constantly.

    I am curious as to the cause as well as any possible solutions. It would be nice to enjoy a beverage from time to time.

    • ANSWER:
      Hangovers are multi-causal. Ethanol has a dehydrating effect by causing increased urine production (such substances are known as diuretics), which causes headaches, dry mouth, and lethargy. Dehydration causes the brain to shrink away from the skull slightly.[3] This can be mitigated by drinking water or an oral electrolyte solution after consumption of alcohol. Alcohol's effect on the stomach lining can account for nausea. Because of the increased NADH production during metabolism of ethanol by the enzymes alcohol dehydrogenase and aldehyde dehydrogenase, excess NADH can build up and slow down gluconeogenesis in the liver, thus causing hypoglycemia.

      Another factor contributing to a hangover are the products from the breakdown of ethanol via liver enzymes. Ethanol is converted to acetaldehyde by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, and then from acetaldehyde to acetic acid by the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Acetaldehyde (ethanal) is mildly toxic, contributing to hangover. These two reactions also require the conversion of NAD+ to NADH. With an excess of NADH, the lactate dehydrogenase reaction is driven to produce lactate from pyruvate (the end product of glycolysis) in order to regenerate NAD+ and sustain life. This diverts pyruvate from other pathways such as gluconeogenesis, thereby impairing the ability of the liver to supply glucose to tissues, especially the brain. Because glucose is the primary energy source of the brain, this lack of glucose contributes to hangover symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, mood disturbances, and decreased attention and concentration.

      There are various nervous system effects: the removal of the depressive effects of alcohol in the brain probably account for the light and noise sensitivity.

      In addition, it is thought that the presence of other alcohols (such as fusel oils), by-products of the alcoholic fermentation also called congeners, exaggerate many of the symptoms (cogeners may also be zinc or other metals added primarily to sweet liqueurs to enhance their flavor); this probably accounts for the mitigation of the effects when distilled alcohol, particularly vodka, is consumed instead.

      The amount of congeners in the drink may also have an effect. Red wines have more congeners than white wines, and some people note less of a hangover with white wine. Some individuals have a strong negative reaction to red wine called red wine headache that can affect them within 15 minutes after drinking a single glass of red wine. The headache is usually accompanied by nausea and flushing.

      In alcohol metabolism, one molecule of ethanol (the primary active ingredient in alcoholic beverages) produces 2 molecules of NADH, utilizing Vitamin B12 as a coenzyme. Over-consumption of ethanol may cause vitamin B12 deficiency as well.

      Fat burning foods and exercises are the ideal solution for individuals who are on a weight loss program. Foods that burn more calories than the amount of calories contained in the food itself are also known as fat burning foods.

      fat burning foods that burn more calories during digestion then they contain are generally high in two things, fiber and water. Celery is a good example. fat burning foods, or negative calorie foods, are supposed to be so low in calories that digesting these foods burn more calories than they contain.

      Fat burning foods are readily available and will definitely fit into your budget as well. Fat burning foods not only helps us to lose weight naturally but also increase our body rate of weight loss. So include these foods in your daily diet helps speed up weight loss, build a healthier body and put you on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

      Plus eating every 2-3 hours is the basis of a good fat burning diet because it helps keep your metabolism burning your fat stores and also you do not have to concentrate on the food you’re taking in. Lack of activity combined with lack of attention to diet causes your body then ignores fat stores and works on what you are eating, packing the rest of the excess calories away for a rainy day since it feels you are not eating frequently enough.

      Try eating some of the following fat burning foods and do some exercise, it will boost your metabolism and burn calories (fat) at a faster rate for several hours even after exercise.

      Apples

      Apples are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants need to fight disease. Apples are a fat burning food which will help shed and maintain extra pounds. Apples are simply terrific to deal with losing the fat. Pectin in apple restricts the cells to absorb the fat; and also encourages water absorption from the food which helps in releasing the fat deposits from the body.

      Beets

      Beets are a strong diuretic that focuses on the liver and kidneys. Beets flush out floating body fats. Beets flush out floating body fats and cleanse blood corpuscles that can contain fat deposits. Beets also contain chlorine that stimulates the lymph, which helps flush out fatty deposits.

Chili and cayenne peppers are considered fat burning foods and will also spice up some otherwise bland dishes. Garlic – A natural diuretic containing mustard oils that create a cleansing action in the body.

      Green Tea

      Green tea burners and diet supplements have been found to be very effective in lowering cholesterol so as to reduce the chances of stroke. By increasing the rate of calorie burning, green tea also helps in weight loss. Green tea is often cited as having the most potential. Although it is somewhat unclear as to weather it is the ingredients in the green tea that give benefits, or the green tea as a source of caffeine.

      Grapefruit

      Grapefruit has been shown to reduce insulin levels. If you are one of the many who are insulin resistant and your body is overloaded with insulin, try having half a grapefruit before each meal. Grapefruit may bring back memories of fad diets-gone bad, but the citrus fruit may actually help improve insulin levels, making us feel less hungry. Big on satiety from its high fiber and water content, grapefruit’s low in calories and can aid weight loss when incorporated into a healthy diet.

      Eat More Fruit

      In studies of peoples eating habits it was noticed that fruit eaters ate fewer calories overall, this could be because having a snack a couple of times a day with three reasonable meals will help to maintain a good blood sugar level, which helps to control your hunger.

      So, next time you need to satisfy a sugar craving, reach for this low-calorie, high-fiber snack. Fruits like apples, peaches, grapefruits, and oranges, at only 60-80 calories apiece (or less), are a great addition to almost any nutritional plan. Just make sure the majority of your carbohydrates are of the complex type. Fruits make for great snacks and should replace the high fat snacks that we normally eat.

      Fruits rich in vitamin C like limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruit and tangerines have fat burning properties. Some of the other fat burning foods are asparagus, beet root, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, apple, blueberries, and watermelon.
      Eat More Protein

      Eating protein can help you burn fat. One of the reasons is that it requires a lot of energy to digest protein and the body burns calories to get that energy.

      "Taking the time to relax and savor food increases calorie and fat-burning power by up to 30%", mainstains Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet( Healing Arts Press, 2005).

      The reason: Savoring stimulates the cephalic phase digestive response, or "brain phase" of digestion, which then sets up a slimming chain of events. First, it signals the hypothalamus, the brain's emotion-and-appetite-control center, to trigger the release of the metabolism-reviving thyroid hormone and the pleasure neurochemical cholecystokinin (CCK). In turn, CCK hinders production of the stress hormone cortisol, a known cause of fat accumulation.

"A high-protein diet appears to fool the brain into thinking you've eaten more than you have," says the study's lead author, Scott Weigle, M.D., a professor of endocrinology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Stick with lean protein rather than high-fat, artery clogging meat and dairy products. For breakfast, use low-fat milk instead of water in your oatmeal and sprinkle nuts on top.

    I am going on the diet soon but was just wondering if i have to drink 3 cups in the morning then 3 in the afternoon or just when I want throughout the day?

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

  32. QUESTION:
    What are the best laxatives on the market?
    I'm doing a cleanse that requires a salt water flush daily. I tried it last night and it was terrible! I felt extremely sick and nauseous for an hour or more and almost threw up. I don't think I could take that everyday for the next 10 days. Lol anyone know any good store bought laxatives?

    • ANSWER:
      I lost my weight through diet and exercise.
      Detox or cleanse/starvation diets are a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism). Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.

  33. 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

  34. 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

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

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

      Easiest way to lose weight fast and safely is to cut your calorie intake by eating more on fiber, fruits and vegetables. You'll feel full with fewer calories on them. Fruits, vegetables and fibers are packed with nutrients but less on calories.

      I lost 10 pounds in just 2 months using these tips.

      Here are Tips to help speed up your metabolism plus help you lose weight without being miserable. they worked for me =)

      "Taking the time to relax and savor food increases calorie and fat-burning power by up to 30%", mainstains Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet( Healing Arts Press, 2005).

      The reason: Savoring stimulates the cephalic phase digestive response, or "brain phase" of digestion, which then sets up a slimming chain of events. First, it signals the hypothalamus, the brain's emotion-and-appetite-control center, to trigger the release of the metabolism-reviving thyroid hormone and the pleasure neurochemical cholecystokinin (CCK). In turn, CCK hinders production of the stress hormone cortisol, a known cause of fat accumulation.

      1. Outsmart Snack Attacks for 4 hours and Lose Weight

      Savoring Berries can oustmart snack attacks for 4 hours and help you shed 5% of your body weight in 6 months. The credit goes to dozens of blood sugar stabilizing antioxidants. Bluberries are so packed with them, just a half cup daily can boost your blood levels by 100%.

      2. Fill up on Fiber and Lose Weight Fast

      Fill up on Fiber - Foods rich in fiber will make you feel satisfied and help curb your appetite, helping you to lose weight fast and safely - so make sure to pack your diet with fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

      3. Boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50% by sipping coffee

      Sipping coffee before a meal can supress appetite by 35%, plus boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50%, according to extensive research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. The study-proven dose : 250 mg of caffeine daily, taken either in supplement form or by sipping to cups of coffee or 4 cups of tea.

      4. Lose Weight just by eating Yogurt

      Yogurt is a calcium-rich food. Research links calcium with lower cortisol production, and it has been proven that women who increase they're intake lose up to 40% more weight than calcium avoiders.

      Plus Yogurt has live microorganisms which helps proper digetion and absorption of nutrients we take. Make sure to get yogurts that says "with live microorganisms in labels/packages".

      5. Try this Hunger-Taming Trick

      Cut fat and you'll cut cravings. Consuming a high-fat diet may supress your body's natural satiety signals, according to a new study from Pennsylvania State University. Animals who'd been consuming a diet rich in fat ended up eating 40% more of a high-calorie snack than those on average diets. Keep your fat intake to less than 30% of total calories.

      6. Feel full on less food.

      Apples are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that slows the digestive process, so you'll feel full on less food.The result: You'll eat just enough food to make you happy, reducing calorie intake.

      7. Studies suggest people pursuing a healthy weight could lose more weight and burn more fat by including 24 ounces a day of low fat or fat-free milk in their reduced-calorie diet, instead of 8 ounces or less.

      8. Speed fat burn with Cranberries.

      The ascorbic acid in cranberries helps thin liver bile, making it easier for the organ to emulsify fat so so it can be quickly flushed out of the system rather than stored in cells.

      9. Boost your protein intake and lose almost a pound a week without hunger.

      You can try protein smoothies. Packed with nutrients and low in calories, smoothies are a fast, easy and great tasting way to achieve good health.

      You can find a wide collection of healthy fruit smoothies at : http://fruitsmoothierecipe.bravehost.com

      By boosting your protein intake from the typical 15% of total calories to 30%, you may be able to cut your daily calorie intake by 440-enough to lose almost a pound a week without hunger, according to a recent University of Washigton study. "A high-protein diet appears to fool the brain into thinking you've eaten more than you have," says the study's lead author, Scott Weigle, M.D., a professor of endocrinology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Stick with lean protein rather than high-fat, artery clogging meat and dairy products. For breakfast, use low-fat milk instead of water in your oatmeal and sprinkle nuts on top. Eat plenty of beans, fish and skinless chicken breast.

      10. To counteract a binge, keep your body's fat-burning furnace running on full blast by drinking Green Tea.

      Green Tea contains caffeine and the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) , which is proven to boost metabolic rate. In fact, in a recent 3 month study, participants who took Green Tea extract lost 4.6% of their body weight without changing their diet. To get the benefit, drink at least 3 cups a day.

      Whenever I ate too much, I just drink green tea and I don't have to worry gaining weight.

      11. Speed weight loss and double energy levels by eating Coconuts.

      This tropical treats contain medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a unique fat that is shuttled straight to the liver and immediately burned for fuel. Research shows this little detour revs metabolic rate by up to 50%, speeding weight loss and doubling energy levels

      Plus my favorite tip : Before you eat, drink a glass of water. This will help you feel fuller without additional calories (water has no calories). And Satisfy sweet cravings and keep your stomach full longer by eating all-natural fruits.

    • ANSWER:
      oh my god...i am so sorry to hear about your family tragedy...you are a very good and strong person and admire you...
      the syptoms are What are the symptoms of Liver Cancer?

      The most common symptoms of liver cancer are from a massive tumor growing in the liver, or even liver failure. A very early cancer will have no symptoms, since it is too small to cause any. As it enlarges, common symptoms include:

      1.Pain in the right upper abdominal area caused by stretching of the liver's capsule, which is rich in nerves. The liver may then extend below the right costal margin ("hepatomegaly") and be painful to probe.
      2. Weight Loss and loss of appetite; the liver is a digestive organ.
      3. Swelling of the abdomen (called "ascites" pronounced a-site-ees) from the liver failing to produce the protein required to hold the blood's fluid in the blood vessels, so it migrates out to fill the abdomen, scrotum and limbs.
      4. Cirrhosis signs like breast swelling in males (from the liver failing to break down estrogens) and little spider shaped veins (angiomata) seen on the skin. Another sign of liver failure is very red palms ("palmar erythema").
      5. Blood clotting problems leading to intestinal bleeding and bruises on the skin. The liver normally uses vitamin K from the diet and intestinal bacteria sources to synthesize the clotting factor ("prothrombin") necessary for life.
      6.Fatigue and eventually coma from buildup of ammonia in the body.
      7. Jaundice and light stools, from blockage of the bile draining system. Also looser and smellier stools may be seen, ("steatorrhea") indicating poor breakdown of fats in the digestive tract. Jaundice normally produces itching (pruritis) when it becomes marked. The first area notable for jaundice, caused by the
      liver's failure to clear bilirubin, is the whites of the eyes ("scleral icterus").
      8. Paraneoplastic syndromes means unusual symptoms caused by chemical alterations in the body either from the liver failing or secretions from the tumor cells themselves. These include elevated blood calcium, low blood sugar, anemias, precocious puberty in children, intense flushing, and other metabolic
      disturbances. These syndromes often will be alleviated with cancer shrinkage.
      9. Signs of Distant Spread include bone pain, neurological symptoms from brain involvement, and intestinal blockage. These all indicate advanced disease.

  39. QUESTION:
    My daughter has been diagnosed with wheat allergy. How long does it take for the body to clean up and improve?
    It has been 2 weeks and so far the results are nor encouraging.
    The muddy stools are still there and she is not gaining weight.
    Is there something beside the wheat free diet to be done?
    She is 2 1/2 years old and the only visible symptom is the loose stool and the lack of weight gain.

    • ANSWER:
      Improvement should start within a few days, although it will take a couple of weeks or so to flush her system clean. In addition to omitting wheat, make sure she drinks plenty of water to help her liver and her kidneys flush things out more quickly.

      Here are some links about wheat allergies and wheat intolerance that may help.

      James D'Adamo

      The dynamics of weight loss are related to the changes your body makes when you follow your genetically tailored diet. There are two factors.
      1) First, as your body makes the dramatic shift of eliminating foods that are poorly digested or toxic, the first thing it does is try flush out the toxins that are already there.
      Those toxins are mainly deposited in the fat tissue, so the process of eliminating toxins also means eliminating fat.
      2) The second factor is the effects that specific foods have on the bodily systems that control weight. Depending on your blood type, the lectin activity of certain foods may do the following:
      __ Interfere with the digestive process.
      __ Slow down the rate of food metabolism, so you don't efficiently burn calories
      for energy.
      __ Compromise the production of insulin.
      __ Upset the hormonal balance, causing water retention (oedema), thyroid
      disorders and other problems.

      Our blood contains aeons of genetic memory--bits and pieces of specific programming, passed on from our ancestors in codes we are still attempting to comprehend. One such code rests within our blood type. Perhaps it is the most important code we can decipher in our attempt to unravel the mysteries of blood and its vital role in
      our existence.

They began to hunt in organized packs; in a short time, they were able to make weapons and use tools. These major advances gave them strength and superiority beyond their natural physical abilities

  42. QUESTION:
    why do you need to drink salt water every morning and tea in the evening for the lemonade diet?
    what does it do? and do you have to do it or can u just do the lemonade diet part?

    • 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 when we become overweight.
      Additionally, many external 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.

  43. QUESTION:
    Is there any supplements or foods that can reduce or disolve gall stones?
    I already eat a very low fat diet but want remove these pain nodules if ican without surgery.

    • ANSWER:
      I have softened Gall and Liver stones with Vegetable juices. The after a week on the juice the stones where half the size they were, than I did a liver flush that eximinated them.

      The juice combination was 2 parts Carrot, 1 part cabbage, 1 part Broccoli, drink 1 quart daily for a week (three weeks for complete elimination).

      I also did salad twice a day (1/2 - 1 cup each or more) with these three vegetables grated/chopped and a salad dressing of 1 part Honey, 1 part raw apple cider vinegar (from health food store), 2 parts olive oil, seasoning to taste. I eat lightly cutting out all refined foods and meats, cheeses, alcohol (with I never drank).

      I ended the week with a liver flush, I have done it twice the first time I got out over 200 stones with 4 being the size and aprox shape of a brazil nut still in the shell. The second I did with the vegetable juice first and one stone before the week of juice was almost the size of a golf ball and odd shaped, when it came out it was about the size of a large marble, more rounded but still had the biggest odd point. I got out about 75 smaller stones (pea to sand sized).

      If you would like the liver flush you can email me for full details. It is easy to do and all the ingredient can be purchased at the grocery store, but there is many simple conditions that must be followed to get the best results, email me at ftsgrs06@yahoo

      There are other ways I have heard of for gallbladder stones, but I feel that if the gallbladder holds about 10-20 stones, and the liver can hold hundreds, I would like to remove as much as possilbe. After the first flush my liver function imporved, though still sluggish untill after the second about 2-3 years later. It takes about 3-7 years to rebuild the liver. Mine took about 5 after getting out the stones, the first time.

      A few things to consider:
      1- It is best to remove or eliminate the cause of the stones (toxins, parisites, eggs, or waste that the liver was unable to handle), the stones are like pearls, the body coats the irritation to protect itself, the longer it is in the body the larger they get.
      2- Olive oil is the only oil that is healing for the liver and gallbladder. Olive oil and lemon juice alone will desolve gallstones if taken on an empty stomach, for a week (only handles small amounts).
      3- Milk Thistle is healing and protective for the liver (take if doing or taking anything that may damage the liver).
      4- Low fat diet can cause larger gallstones as the bile is part of the digestion of the oils and the body sends the small stones out of the body with it.

  44. QUESTION:
    What is good to flush the liver of toxins?
    My x just died if liver disease..he drank hard all his life..I mean all day..i drink beer..but have always worked all day..I am not as bad as he was but still worry,,is there anything i can drink or eat to protect or flush toxins?

    • ANSWER:
      Misfit -
      as a rule we are not able to reverse the damage to our livers through drug, alcohol and food abuse.
      Your best bet is to start a healthy diet and exercise program. The body is designed to detoxify itself 24 hours per day if given the chance.
      If you can cut back on the toxins going in you will allow the liver to focus on the toxins created through normal body function.
      Good luck dear. Sorry for your loss.

  45. QUESTION:
    Is it realistic to cut out all carbs and just eat veggies, certain fruits, and certain meats to lose weight?
    I have been on a diet more than a year. I have lost close to 50 pounds. I need to lose 10 or so. I thought of cutting out all carbs.

    • ANSWER:
      Hope these will somehow help =)

      Easiest way to lose weight fast and safely is to cut your calorie intake by eating more on fiber, fruits and vegetables. You'll feel full with fewer calories on them. Fruits, vegetables and fibers are packed with nutrients but less on calories.

      I lost 10 pounds in just 2 months using these tips.

      Here are Tips to help speed up your metabolism plus help you lose weight without being miserable. they worked for me =)

      "Taking the time to relax and savor food increases calorie and fat-burning power by up to 30%", mainstains Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet( Healing Arts Press, 2005).

      The reason: Savoring stimulates the cephalic phase digestive response, or "brain phase" of digestion, which then sets up a slimming chain of events. First, it signals the hypothalamus, the brain's emotion-and-appetite-control center, to trigger the release of the metabolism-reviving thyroid hormone and the pleasure neurochemical cholecystokinin (CCK). In turn, CCK hinders production of the stress hormone cortisol, a known cause of fat accumulation.

      1. Outsmart Snack Attacks for 4 hours and Lose Weight

      Savoring Berries can oustmart snack attacks for 4 hours and help you shed 5% of your body weight in 6 months. The credit goes to dozens of blood sugar stabilizing antioxidants. Bluberries are so packed with them, just a half cup daily can boost your blood levels by 100%.

      2. Fill up on Fiber and Lose Weight Fast

      Fill up on Fiber - Foods rich in fiber will make you feel satisfied and help curb your appetite, helping you to lose weight fast and safely - so make sure to pack your diet with fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

      3. Boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50% by sipping coffee

      Sipping coffee before a meal can supress appetite by 35%, plus boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50%, according to extensive research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. The study-proven dose : 250 mg of caffeine daily, taken either in supplement form or by sipping to cups of coffee or 4 cups of tea.

      4. Lose Weight just by eating Yogurt

      Yogurt is a calcium-rich food. Research links calcium with lower cortisol production, and it has been proven that women who increase they're intake lose up to 40% more weight than calcium avoiders.

      Plus Yogurt has live microorganisms which helps proper digetion and absorption of nutrients we take. Make sure to get yogurts that says "with live microorganisms in labels/packages".

      5. Try this Hunger-Taming Trick

      Cut fat and you'll cut cravings. Consuming a high-fat diet may supress your body's natural satiety signals, according to a new study from Pennsylvania State University. Animals who'd been consuming a diet rich in fat ended up eating 40% more of a high-calorie snack than those on average diets. Keep your fat intake to less than 30% of total calories.

      6. Feel full on less food.

      Apples are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that slows the digestive process, so you'll feel full on less food.The result: You'll eat just enough food to make you happy, reducing calorie intake.

      7. Studies suggest people pursuing a healthy weight could lose more weight and burn more fat by including 24 ounces a day of low fat or fat-free milk in their reduced-calorie diet, instead of 8 ounces or less.

      8. Speed fat burn with Cranberries.

      The ascorbic acid in cranberries helps thin liver bile, making it easier for the organ to emulsify fat so so it can be quickly flushed out of the system rather than stored in cells.

      9. Boost your protein intake and lose almost a pound a week without hunger.

      You can try protein smoothies. Packed with nutrients and low in calories, smoothies are a fast, easy and great tasting way to achieve good health.

      By boosting your protein intake from the typical 15% of total calories to 30%, you may be able to cut your daily calorie intake by 440-enough to lose almost a pound a week without hunger, according to a recent University of Washigton study. "A high-protein diet appears to fool the brain into thinking you've eaten more than you have," says the study's lead author, Scott Weigle, M.D., a professor of endocrinology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Stick with lean protein rather than high-fat, artery clogging meat and dairy products. For breakfast, use low-fat milk instead of water in your oatmeal and sprinkle nuts on top. Eat plenty of beans, fish and skinless chicken breast.

      10. To counteract a binge, keep your body's fat-burning furnace running on full blast by drinking Green Tea.

      Green Tea contains caffeine and the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) , which is proven to boost metabolic rate. In fact, in a recent 3 month study, participants who took Green Tea extract lost 4.6% of their body weight without changing their diet. To get the benefit, drink at least 3 cups a day.

      Whenever I ate too much, I just drink green tea and I don't have to worry gaining weight.

      11. Speed weight loss and double energy levels by eating Coconuts.

      This tropical treats contain medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a unique fat that is shuttled straight to the liver and immediately burned for fuel. Research shows this little detour revs metabolic rate by up to 50%, speeding weight loss and doubling energy levels

      Plus my favorite tip : Before you eat, drink a glass of water. This will help you feel fuller without additional calories (water has no calories). And Satisfy sweet cravings and keep your stomach full longer by eating all-natural fruits.

  46. QUESTION:
    Why does one crave salt after drinking alcohol?
    I noticed a odd phenomenon that after drinking a small glass of wine or just a beer there seems to be a craving for salt. No I'm not drunk or anything just a usual small glass of wine at night time.

    Looking at some webpages it says the body is trying to flush alcohol out of the system and requires salt because the loss of electrolytes. I can agree to an extent if the person is drunk but just a glass of wine or a beer seems odd.

    What is your hypothesis or belief why people crave salt after drinking a small amount of alcohol?

    Thank you for your answers.

    • ANSWER:
      Probably for several interrelated reasons, all of which can be summarized as: “Because alcohol is bad for you, boys and girls.”
      One thing you already know is that drinking alcohol makes you urinate. But “you’re not just peeing out the beer, you’re peeing out more than the beer,” said Dr. Harrison Weed of the Ohio State University Medical Center.
      Alcohol inhibits the production of the hormone that regulates urine production, making you urinate more than necessary. You start to dehydrate—peeing away essential levels of body water and salt.
      “The craving for salt is a natural craving after any dehydrating experience,” said Paul Coleman, president of Columbus, Ohio’s Maryhaven addiction recovery center. This might lead you to salty snacks (which are usually greasy as well).
      Weed points out that humans have deep desires for salt and fat—good sources of sodium and calories, respectively, that are hard to find in nature and would have been treasures to our ancient ancestors. Now that salt and fat are available in snack foods in harmfully high doses, we have to will ourselves away from them.
      Alcohol reduces such inhibitions, magnifies desire and can distort the body’s sense of satiety. It also irritates the digestive tract and stimulates the flow of gastric juices, which can provoke a false feeling of hunger. All these factors combined can make you give in to pre-existing junk-food cravings. Booze is a renowned diet-buster.
      And you probably have plenty of junk food spread before you to crave. “Raw carrot sticks, celery and other vegetables are not the usual snacks served with drinks!” point out the authors of the book “Understanding Alcohol.” Instead, high-fat foods like nuts, chips and cheeses are usually served with booze because alcohol, which is not fat-soluble, is slowed down by fat in the bloodstream. The fat delays alcohol’s psychological effects, allowing (or forcing) you to drink more.
      Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, could also make you crave food after drinking if your diet is poor. When glucose—the food-derived sugar that the body uses for energy—is in short supply, the liver will make some from fats and proteins. But if there’s alcohol in your system, the liver will ignore glucose production and set to work flushing out the booze instead. Your blood sugar can drop dangerously.
      Otherwise healthy people can become hypoglycemic if they’ve been drinking heavily and eating little for 48 to 72 hours. (Dieters are prime candidates.) If you’re surprised to find yourself “drunk” on your first drink, it may be from an energy-starved brain rather than an alcohol high.
      All this trouble is best avoided by drinking little or no booze, eating well and setting out only healthy snacks. Or you could just nail a Crisco-covered salt lick to the arm of your La-Z-Boy. Cheers.

  47. QUESTION:
    How can I lose 20 pounds in a month and a half?
    i want to do it the right way, the healthy way, but i'm not sure what kind of foods i should eat. what kind of diet should i go on,and how much excercise should i do?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Drink water

      Water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off longer term.

      Water acts as an appetite suppressant by keeping your stomach full and fending off dehydration which can lead to false cravings/hunger.

      Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush out waste. When you don't drink enough water the liver which works to provide stored fat for energy helps the kidneys eliminate waste and becomes less effective at metabolizing fat.

      Drinking water ice cold burns about 62 calories a day. Your body has to work to raise that waters temperature to your body's temperature. This equals around 430 calories per week.

      2. Eat regularly

      This means eating 5 times a day and the most important meal is breakfast.

      Make sure you fuel your body first thing in the morning to avoid hunger pangs later in the day.

      When you eat 5 times a day you will never feel hungry, make sure the total calories consumed are sensible and don't over eat in any of the meals learn portion size control!

      3. Eat lots of fibre

      Eating adequate fiber foods to help keep things moving through your bowel. And like water, fiber rich foods bulk you up and make you feel fuller for longer.

      Fibre is found only in plant foods our bodies cant digest it to so it simply goes through the body. During the elimination process it cuts calories consumed by attaching to protein and fat that you eat along with it removes that as well

      In addition, high fiber foods are typically low in calories and filling, so you are reducing your calorie intake overall.

      Good fibre foods include: strawberries, apples, figs, chickpeas, potatoes, (with skins) broccoli, brown rice, beans, bran and nuts.

      4. Consume more good fats

      There are good fats and bad fats

      Good fats provide you with essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic acids) needed for normal reproduction and growth, as well as for production of prostoglandin, a hormone like compound that regulates blood pressure, prevents blood clotting and lowers the risk of heart disease.

      For example, the reason oily fish is a great food stems from the fact that the essential fatty acids which it contains can actually help your body burn fat more efficiently and protect against disease. Get at least three portions of oily fish a week with Salmon, mackerel, herrings and sardines being good choices. 5. Get plenty of quality protein

      Quality protein is an effective weight control tool because of the satiety factor and its ability to keep you full for longer periods. It also balances out carbohydrates by preventing insulin spikes that cause energy loss and sugar cravings

      Protein helps to maintain muscle mass which is important in the fat burning process.

      Good choices include:

      Fish, shrimps, Low fat cottage cheese, low fat yogurt, skimmed milk, egg whites, s Weight gain is caused by consuming too many calories, whether they are from carbohydrate, protein or fat.

      6. Carbohydrates can help you lose weight

      Don't believe what you read about carbohydrates being bad for you, they can actually help you lose weight!

      A diet containing good carbohydrates such fruits and vegetables, wholegrains and moderate in fat and calories, will result in weight loss

      Good carbohydrates will also help you combat hunger pangs as they are slowly realized into the body.

      When eating carbohydrates eat them "from the earth" with no refining or processing.

      These include whole grains, vegetables; fruits and beans.

      Sensible weight loss

      If you have read the above you will see that it is not the food group, but the quality of the food in it that's important for fast weight loss.

      We have outlined all the major food groups above and providing you eat quality foods in these groups and eat a sensible 5 meals a day you will lose weight and feel healthy and full.

  48. QUESTION:
    Where can I get medical information about causes of lowered creatin/creatine levels?
    A family member is in drug court. After 6 months of good urine tests, low creatin levels are showing up and they say that is because the person is "flushing". What are other reasons the levels could be lower?

    • ANSWER:
      Low blood creatinine levels can indicate a decrease in muscle mass caused by a disease, such as muscular dystrophy, or by aging. Low levels can also indicate some types of severe liver disease or a diet very low in protein. Pregnancy can also cause low blood creatinine levels.

      Low creatinine clearance results indicate serious kidney damage. Kidney damage can be due to conditions such as a life-threatening infection, shock, cancer, reduced blood flow to the kidneys, or urinary tract blockage. Other conditions, such as heart failure, dehydration, and liver disease (cirrhosis), can also cause low creatinine clearance results.

      A low BUN-to-creatinine ratio may be associated with a diet low in protein, a severe muscle injury called rhabdomyolysis, pregnancy, cirrhosis, or syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). SIADH sometimes occurs with lung disease, cancer, diseases of the central nervous system, and the use of certain medications.

  50. QUESTION:
    Detoxing my body before I start a whole new lifestyle?
    My phone has an app that gives me a number of different diets. One of them is a 3 day detox, it's eating about 900 calories a day for 3 days. Is this safe to do before I start my new lifestyle of retraining myself to eat properly? I'd really like to flush my system and start over before I start.

    • ANSWER:
      The good news is that you really don't need to flush your system or detoxify your body before you embark on a new lifestyle. You already own some of the most effective filters known, in the form of your liver and kidneys. Despite the hype, your colon is not chock full of gunk and you are not a walking bag of toxins. Things that don't belong in the body are filtered out by the kidneys and livers, if they are even absorbed at all. All you have to do is simply start eating properly, and trust your body to do what it does best. A 900 calorie diet wouldn't necessarily hurt you, but it would not provide you with the best nutrients, nor the calories your body needed to operate at optimum levels. But skip on all those detox preps and the odd diet combos, because they really don't work. At best, they do nothing except leave you hungry. Most are fancy laxatives, which simply cause diarrhea. Diarrhea isn't a friend of anyone, and actually upsets the body a lot more than anything else. Your system doesn't need flushing, honestly. Just start your new routines, and you'll see the results without having to torture your body at all.

How Much Does Colon Cleanse Cost

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How much does a colon cleanse cost?
    When I DID have insurance, I asked for one and my doctor said no. She wouldn't even examine my colon maybe because I don't fall into the stereotype of the older male patient who get VIP treatment.

    Anyway, lately I see little drops of blood from my behind and things just don't feel right back there, plus I have a family history of colon cancer. I currently no longer have health insurance. Can I just walk into a hospital and request a colon cleanse and if so how much out of pocket would it cost?

    • ANSWER:
      You don't need a colon cleanse you need a COLONOSCOPY! That can detect cancer. A colon cleanse will simply empty your bowels of feces. That's not going to do much for you. If you really want to clean the pipes get a Fleets Enema from the store and take Metamucil. That will clean you out. Call your local hospital they may have programs for uninsured at risk people with a family history to get a colonoscopy. Or have a sliding scale fee. Out of pocket would be expensive because they sedate you for the procedure wich always costs waaaaay too much!!

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to colon cleanse?
    Which herbal colon cleansing supplements are the best? Is it better to get a colonic? How much do they usually cost and are there any risks? Any extra helpful information would be appreciated thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      They are not needed. Your colon cleanses itself. They are a money making scam.

      Your intestine is 3 metres long. the cleanse only helps the last 8 inches.

      It also removes all the good bacteria you need.

      It has caused diverticulitis.

    I often hear how you can lose 15 lbs just by getting your colon cleansed. Do you have any experience with this? Where can I find more info?

    How often do you have to do it? How long does it take to lose 15 pounds after doing it? How safe is it? How much does it cost? Where do you get it done?

    I promise to pick best answer!

    • ANSWER:
      The acai berry really isn't meant to be a colon cleanser. It's just a food high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.

      A colon cleanser will get rid of about 2-3 lbs of waste/parasite buildup immediately. The rest of the weight loss comes from the health benefits of getting rid of that waste. Your body absorbs more nutrients and vitamins and your energy is increased. There's a nice article on it over at http://www.thehealthfitnessblog.com/general-health-and-fitness/dual-action-colon-cleanse

  4. 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.

      http://www.cleansecolonblog.com/ is a blog that review colon cleanse product, colon cleanse home remedies and more.

  5. 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.

  6. QUESTION:
    Is quitting smoking necessary for colon cleanse?
    I have been smoking for 11 years, and I have tried to quit in the past, but was unsuccessful. Lately, I have been looking into colon cleansing and its benefits, and would like to try it. One of the recommendations was absolutely no smoking. I know smoking is bad, and I know that it seems pointless to even consider a cleanse if I'm gonna smoke. I was just wondering if smoking causes MORE damage or are they suggesting that it is just GENERALLY a bad thing to do?

    • ANSWER:
      There are zero health benefits from "colon cleansing", and potential harms. (the cost, side effects, infection, perforation, peritonitis, death)

      There are serious harms from smoking tobacco as well as zero benefits

      Quit smoking for it's own sake, and don't waste your time on colon cleanses.

    Questions about Total Acai and the Colon Cleanse?
    Hey, thanks for looking at my question, I just wanted to know if the Total Acai and Colon Cleanse products are available for all ages, and if so, how much do they cost after the free trial?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't touch this with a bargepole - my friend bought the free trial. When she didn't cancel within the specified period they charged her £70 for each product for each month and would not allow her to cancel. In the end she cancelled her credit card.

  8. QUESTION:
    Is there a non prescription complete colon cleanse product in Australia?
    Im wanting to start a diet on a completely cleansed body and would like to know if there are any non prescribed colon cleanse products sold in perth western australian chemist and pharmacies

    • ANSWER:
      Colon 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, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well to fully detox.
      Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search gut flora to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  9. QUESTION:
    Should i buy colon cleanse or total cleanse?
    I got parasite and i used drug that dr recommended. So i am going to buy cleanse products but which of them is useful? Colon cleanse or total cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't bother. Both are overpriced products for something you can manage yourself far more cheaply.

      Prune juice and fiber powder such as Metamucil (Psyllium) or Inulin will do the same job for a fraction of the cost and without all the harsh chemicals in the commercial ripoffs.

      Start with a single glass of prune juice and add the recommended daily dose of the fiber powder of your choice. Slowly step up over the next few days to find the point at which you are being cleaned out but not dehydrated or miserable.

      It works like a charm for detox and weight loss.

  10. QUESTION:
    What is good about getting your colon cleansed?
    I've had trouble with my poop and so been thinking about it. Is it covered under health insurance? What is an approximate cost? I have so many questions. :)

    • ANSWER:
      I have done a colon cleanse and solved the same problem. Be careful because I tried several products and they didn't help at all.
      The only product that worked was call herbal fiberblend and I found it on an excellent info site and brought on line from them. I don't think you can claim it on your insurance but do it any how it is well worth the effort.
      If you go to www.allaboutparasites.com you will find all the info you need and I have found the people who developed the site to be trustworthy and they know their stuff, because I corresponded with a lady from their contact page and she was extremely helpful, she helped me go through the cleanse and understand what I was doing

  11. QUESTION:
    does the acai berry juice work the same as the capsules?
    and do i need the colon cleanse with it like they sell online? or can i just use the juice/berries alone?

    • ANSWER:
      One thing that brought my dieting and losing weight out of the plateau I was in so long was the Acai Berry. I was stuck at my weight loss goals and this brought me through it and made me lose a lot of weight. So in my opinion it helped me lose weight tremendously. I know a lot of that dieting stuff is expensive but I found a free trial of Acai Berry(I think it only cost me like 7-8 bucks at the time for shipping.) The site was http://theweightlossplace.com - All I did was try it out for a month and I was sold, I saw the results I wanted to and like I said I was in that plateau with my weight loss. This kicked it up a bunch.

      Good luck and I hope this helps.

  12. QUESTION:
    If it is true that colon cleaners have killed then why are they still on the market?
    I thought colon cleansing was a benifit but now I am told that
    it is not and if that is a true "fact" and if it hurts people more than how much it benifits and even kills people then why
    is it still sold on the market?

    I would appreciate (if this statement about colon cleansing being negative is true) a "TRUSTWORTHY" website that shows "facts" rather than opinions about colon cleansing.

    Thanks a lot!

    • ANSWER:
      www.quackwatch.com is the best one collecting articles and information about this type of scam.

      The reason this stuff is still allowed to be on the market is because of legislation pushed by the supplement industry (sounding ironically like the type of tactics they claim Big Pharma(tm) uses) which keeps the FDA from regulating this type of thing. It take the FTC to come in and get it off the market, but they're overwhelmed by this type of thing and take a lot of time to get stuff off the market. Also, like Airborne, they usually only get fined. These fines are only a tiny percentage of what they make in profits. It's just the cost of doing business.

      It is weird to see people talk about all this natural supplement stuff and complain about 'big pharma' when their 'heroes' are doing the type of stuff they are villifying pharmaceutical companies for doing.

    how often is too much or just pointless?
    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      An enema is the insertion of a solution into the rectum and lower intestine( can be done at home by urself)

      Colon cleansing (also known as colon therapy) encompasses a number of alternative medical therapies intended to remove feces and nonspecific toxins from the colon and intestinal tract. Colon cleansing may take the form of colon hydrotherapy (also called a colonic or colonic irrigation) or oral cleansing regimens such as dietary supplements. During the 2000s internet marketing and infomercials of colon supplements increased.

      Laxative- A food or drug that stimulates evacuation of the bowels

      Enema's DO NOT hurt. they are special made bottles with special solution in it, that u insert in ur rectum. it does not hurt. u might feel ur belly weird, but it does not hurt. u are instructed to insert it sitting on a side, or with ur butt in the air. wait for 4 minutes, or untill u feel like u REALLY need to go, then get up and sit on the toilet. IT DOES NOT HURT when u go, u just GO.

      LAXATIVES--powders, pills, and foods, can make u have THE WORST CRAMPS EVER, and even doctors tell u to stay away from them, as ur colon will become depended on the, and u wont be able to go without them after a while.

      COLON CLEANSER, is something that u should do once every 5 years. it cleans out EVERYTHING in ur system, that ur body does not get rid of by itself.

      i had a bad case of constipation and here is a bit of insight i found out in the ER:

      after not being able to go for 2 weeks--I GOT SCARED.
      i tried Miralax, exlax, and other " really good" ones( yeah sure) none worked.
      i tried cramberry juice- same result.
      finally! went to the ER
      they gave me Magnezium Citrate( JEEZ!! DID THAT EVER WORK!!! its a small bottle of VERY VERY concentrated liquid...i chose lemon...u drink three quarters- to a bottle( depending on how bad it is) as fast as u can. follow that with a BIG tall glass of water, then wait..............about 4 hours, after that u explode. THAT IS THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY of getting rid of constipation without spending money on all kids of cr@p( provided that ur colon is not blocked by something)

  15. QUESTION:
    What is the difference between a "medical" colon cleanse and one that you can buy over the counter?
    Is there a difference other than the time frame involved? This is what I mean, when someone needs to get their colon checked for cancer or polyps or whatever at the doctor's office, they have to drink this nasty liquid stuff the day before that totally cleans your system out.

    Then there is the stuff you can buy over the counter or online. Something like this is what I am referring to....
    http://www.drnatura.com/colonix_program.php

    Why does one take so much longer than the other... is one more effective?

    What other factors should someone who is thinking about doing this take into consideration? I have heard of hydro cleansing but that is not an option due to the high cost. So that is why I am not inquiring about that now.

    Anyone have any first hand experience with either one of these, even both would be better. Thanks a lot everyone.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not too familiar with medical cleanses, but I have taken an over the counter one and I work for a Vitamin company. Basically its all herbs that are for colon detox (ex. cascarda sagrada, slippery elm, etc) These and other herbs will slowly take the "toxic material" that is in your colon, and the fiber part of the cleanse will flush it out. The one I took was a 2-week whole body cleanse by Enzymatic therapy, and it consisted of liver cleansing herbs (milk thistle) Laxative formula and fiber pills. Basically in week one I took 4 fiber capsules in the morning, 3 laxative pills at night w/ 1 milk thistle tablet and 4 more fiber capsules. The second week it was the same amount of fiber but less laxative and more milk thistle. So, a colon cleanse product will be very close to this. Its inexpensive at some health stores (I've heard Dr. naturas products are good, but they are pricey) Anyways, I hope this helps some.

  16. 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! :)

    how often should i do an enema?
    how often is too much or just pointless?
    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Will you get bloated? as in will the enema swell your tummy? That depends on how much fluid you use. Most likely if you take 1 1/2- 2 quarts you will feel very full and have a noticeable bulge. I would recommend starting with less, maybe a quart at the most for your first enema. Be sure to add a little salt to keep from throwing your electrolytes out of balance.

      How long will it take to cleanse you? Again that depends. If you are a little constipated a few ounces will get things moving in just a few minutes. If you are doing multiple 2 quart enemas then you probably need a few hours start to finish. Usually if I take 1 1/2 quarts it is all expelled within an hour or so counting return trips to the toilet. You need to decide what it is you want to accomplish and what works for you. Remember its not a race.

      Does it hurt? No it should not, if it does you are doing something wrong. Under some conditions enemas may cause bad cramps but this can be avoided with practice. Remember to get the air out of the line and don't hang the bag too high.

      Will it be diarrhea? Well you could describe it that way. Especially towards the end of a large enema.

      How much does it cost? You may be able to find a cheap bag for 5.00 but I would expect to pay more like 12.00-15.00. Some bags can go much more than that, there are some bags that can go for 75.00 or more new and I have seen antique bags go over 0.00. Check ebay and you will see what I mean.

      Do I have to get it prescribed? No.
      Can I buy it at walmart? Maybe, enema bags/ fountain syringes are not as popular as they once were and I have not seen any lately at walmart but I have heard that some walmarts still keep them.

      Are there more higher end stores that sell nicer kinds? Yes there are specialty shops online, just search "enema" or try ebay.

      What brand? The one I would specificly avoid would be cara. I do not like the nozzle that comes with it as it tends to slip out. Faultless is a decent brand and many drug companies once had their own brands.

      How often? Thats up to you but once or twice a week works for me.

      How often is too much? I would avoid daily enemas for extended periods of time. Two or three days in a row and then skip a few days should be ok.
      .
      Pointless? That depends on what the point was to begin with. I take enemas because I enjoy them. Other people may take them for health or other reasons. You will have to decide when it becomes pointless.

      There is a website "enemas4fun" that you might want to take a look at. There are several others that may help answer your questions if you look around.

      If by some chance you are considering this for weight loss, I am skeptical of the effectiveness of enemas for weight loss. At the very least you need to be aware that enemas can be dangerous. There are many websites dedicated to enema fetishes , find some of these "how to" websites and read carefully. Most of them do contain accurate information of the dangers and how to avoid them. This is something that I have been involved with for many years and have first hand knowledge of. Please take time to educate yourself and be careful.

    Is it possible to colon cleanse without getting abdominal discomfort/ frequent restroom trips?
    Is there any way to cleanse without having to be inconvenienced, if you know what I mean...?

    and NO SPAMMY BOTS PLEASE!

    • ANSWER:
      colon cleansing is most likely designed to get you to part with your money, and might not even work for you.

      If you wish to lose body fat, a good way is high intensity interval training. like jumping rope or springing 50 yards 5 times with a 1 minute rest. in a few weeks you will notice a loss of body fat with no really bad side effects and it doesn't cost a lot. take a look at the references in the Wikipedia article to see how effective high intensity interval training is.

  24. 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.

  25. QUESTION:
    What's a quick and easy way to cleanse my system?
    I would take laxatives, but I have no way to get a hold of them, 'cause mom won't get them for me, and I have no money to get them myself. I have no okra, either, so the boiled okra thing is a no-go.

    But I'm looking for a way to clean out my system/colon quickly and easily, without having to do anything complicated or that costs money.

    Help?

      Epson salts. 1 tablespoon to the quart of water and drink it slowly. About 1/2 hour for affect to be noticed. This is alternate cleanout before colon scans, police use for suspected body packer.

  26. QUESTION:
    What will happen if I take all these "diet pills" together?
    Seriously now,

    Lipozene
    Thyro-slim am/pm
    Alli
    24/7 slimming patch

    to top it off I will take 6 laxatives a day to empty extra water weight with a colon cleanse

    • ANSWER:
      This is extremely dangerous! First off, diet pills DO NOT WORK! Never! EVER! No exceptions! It''s just a huge, multi-billion dollar industry scamming us all! They are SO expensive and dangerous because they FDA doesn't regulate 99.9% of them, so they can put whatever chemicals and whatnot they want in there. So not only are they dangerous, they don't work, and they cost you hundreds of dollars every month! Save yourself the money and kick the diet pill habit!

      As far as laxatives, you really only should take them as reccomended by a doctor. If you use them when you don't truly need them (aka severely constipated) you will begin to have problems naturally having bowel movements and get into a horrible, painful cycle of having to take more and more each time, and more often. Plus, all the water weight you will lose will just come right back when you eat and drink. It's really painful, and it's pointless in the long run!

      So, skip the pills! Your body (and wallet) will thank you! Be safe! :)

    How many acai berry pills should I take?
    I am taking the acai fat burn and the acai cleanse together and I was just wondering how much pills of each product should I be taking (how many tablets) for best results.

    I am taking the 14-day start up kit.

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      maybe look at how many pills are in your kit. if there are 14 pills and it's a 14 day kit, then i'ts one a day. if there's more then it's more. simple division. =)
      beware of online 'free trial' scams if this was a free trial. if they have your credit/debit card number they can and will steal from you. trust me, i had to cancel my card because i foolishly fell for it..
      personally i don't feel acai berrys do anything much, you would be better off eating blueberries as they have the same qualities but don't cost an arm and a leg...

    Has anyone used colon cleansing and daily juice products they can recommend?
    I'm looking for a daily regiment that's affordable for my wife and I to start using. I know their are a TON of MLM products out there and I'm sure many are great.
    I don't mind joining one, but would like some non-bias recommendations please.

    • ANSWER:
      It is not necessary to buy special products.

      To keep your colon clean and healthy all you need to do is eat plenty of wholegrain foods, granary bread, fruit and vegetables so that you never become constipated.

      For juice products buy a liqudiser or blender and put in your fruit a little juice, water or milk and blend - you will have a lovely fresh smoothie at a fraction of the cost of buying them.

  33. QUESTION:
    What's a good colon cleansing kit I can buy at my local supermarket?
    And how do I use it? How long does it take? What is the approximate cost of it?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know if you are talking about colon cleansing or laxatives.
      Natural Senna Leaves made into a tea is a good general cleanser for your digestive system as is a diet high in fiber.
      One supplement that is not available in stores is one with Acidophilus and bifidobacterium in a gel cap that keeps your upper and lower digestive tract balanced with the proper flora and good bacteria. The amount of Acidophilus is equivalent to 10 cups of yogurt. I can give you the name of the place I get this if you like. another good choice is Walmart's Vegetable Laxative
      which is nothing more than Senna in tablet form or brand name Sennakot which is more expensive. both work well and are natural herbal remedies that have been around for centuries.

      People turned their backs on natural products about 50 or so years ago, when the big guns with all the money started making
      pharmaceuticals/ie drugs. I have never taken a Rx drug that did not have ill side effects, therefore avoid these whenever possible.

      Good luck and feel free to e-mail me if you want more info.

  34. QUESTION:
    Which is the best cleansing program for natural cures?
    I have read and watched so much media about cleansing programs and would like to know from your experience which program is the best in terms of effectiveness and cost aimed at natural cures.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm glad you are looking for something natural to help cure and balance your body. I'm sure a cleanse will work wonders for you.

      Let me make a suggestion...
      Cleansing is great, and vital to your health, but you need to do it correctly. The purpose of a cleanse (especially if you are fighting a degenerative or chronic disease) is to detox your body AND give your body the nutrients it needs to regenerate clean, healthy cells.

      Most cleanses -- like the master cleanse -- do detox your body, but do nothing for restoring balance to your system. For example, your body is building about 1 billion new cells each day. If you cleanse without flooding your body with super-absorbable nutrients, your body has to create new cells out of whatever is left over in your system after your cleanse-- which is usually mineral, vitamin, protein and fat deficient.

      Instead, I would do a nutritional cleanse. These cleanses flush your entire system (colon included) of all the junk, while simultaneously flooding your cells with super nutrition. This way, when your body starts building new cells -- they are made out of the best "parts" available.

      This will help your body regenerate parts of your body that need help (i.e., new pancreas cells if you are diabetic, new skin cells if your suffer from eczema/psoriasis, new neural cells if you suffer from emotional imbalances). Other benefits of this type of cleanse are: eliminating unhealthy cravings, weight loss, better sleep, more energy, sharp intellect and clear skin.

      Of course, I am biased, and completely endorse the Isagenix product line :) Here's a video that explains the Isagenix nutritional cleanses -- it's only a few minutes long...

  35. 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....

  36. QUESTION:
    How often do I take acai berry maxx?
    I bought a bottle of acai berry maxx, but it really didn't give directions on how many to take or how often, if anyone has lost weight on this stuff how many did you take and when? I also bought some of that colon cleanse so if anyone knows about that please let me about that too!!

    • ANSWER:
      Since nobody has answered yet, I'll toss in my 2 cents.
      Typically, supplements will list how to take them and how often if it matters... if it says "with meals", then that means with each meal (the most common misunderstanding).
      If it just says how to mix it, then it's likely an "as needed" product... you take it as often as you feel you need it. If that's the case, I'd suggest starting out with 1 dose per day for the first couple days (at least until you have a BM or two). If your body takes it well (meaning you don't have very loose stools), go ahead and increase it to 2 doses per day. I wouldn't suggest going over 2 or 3 doses per day unless it says to (not to mention the high cost that would make), but you should be able to contact the company to see what their max recommendation is.

      As far as the colon cleanser, there are lots of options out there and most all of them are primarily fiber and probiotics to clean out your intestines and colon and keep your intestines healthy... those should always have instructions on them. If there aren't instructions on that one, you'll definitely want to call the company first. Good luck!

  38. QUESTION:
    Missing SWF and Tea part in the Master Cleanse Diet?
    I have been on Master Cleanse for 5 days. I just found out that i missed Salt water flush and herbal laxative tea process. What can I do to make it up?

    • ANSWER:
      Master Cleanse Salt Water Flush: A Bath for Your Insides

      Just as you take a bath each day to wash away dirt from the outside of your body, proponents of the master cleanse diet suggest you also give your insides a good regular cleaning. One way to do this is by using a salt water flush. This flush works much like having the radiator in your car flushed. It cleans out all the trash, wastes, toxins and deposits that keep your body from working at its best.

      First, you may think a laxative or enema you can buy at your local drug store can do an adequate job of clearing out whatever may be clogging up your intestines. However, these preparations will only clean out the colon - which is only a small part of the intestines - and sometimes only part of the colon. The salt water flush is superior to these methods because it can clean out the entire digestive system. The flush also costs less than some store bought colon cleansing products.

      Second, you may wonder if you can do a salt water flush yourself or if you need a doctor or nurse to help you with the procedure. The answer is no! A salt water flush can be done at home with ingredients you may already have in your kitchen cabinets. In fact the only things you need to properly complete a salt water flush are water and sea salt. In his essay "The Master Cleanser with Special Needs and Problems" Stanley Burroughs cautions users to be sure they use sea salt in their preparation and not regular salt because regular table salt will not work properly.

      You will now need to know how to perform a salt water flush. The procedure is very simple. First thing in the morning, mix one quart of lukewarm water with two teaspoonsful of sea salt. Drink the entire concoction before you have eaten any food. Within one hour you should have several bowel movements. If not, you may need to try adding a little more salt to the mix, or you may just need to drink more water to help aid the flushing process. Since this flush is not harmful to the body and your body cannot become dependant on the salt water, like it can become dependant on chemical laxatives, this flush is safe to use as often as needed.

      Burroughs also suggests drinking an herbal laxative tea in the evening before you plan to do a salt water flush. He says the tea will help to loosen the deposits and gunk in the digestive tract making it easier for the salt water to flush the wastes out the next morning.

      So, next time you feel fatigued or unusually tired, you might try helping your body along by washing out your digestive tract with a salt water flush. This flush can help clean the toxins and built up waste products out of your digestive tract. The end results are better, more effective digestion through a cleaner less toxic digestive tract

      The Master Cleanse Diet Plan

      The Master Cleanse is a detoxifying diet that gets rid of poisons that have built up in your body from years of eating the American diet - what has ultimately caused you to gain those extra pounds. This diet claims to be the fastest and most effective way to lose weight, cut cravings for unhealthy fats and regain the energy you once had during your youth.

      The Master Cleanse Diet plan should be done for at least ten days, which is long enough to see changes in your weight and mental state. The first two or three days are always the worst because the toxins from the most recent waste will be eliminated immediately. Be prepared for frequent, runny bowel movements, which could last for up to an hour on the first day. Make sure you plan your day accordingly, so you have the time and facilities to eliminate those toxins!
      What makes the Master Cleanse Diet a different weight loss plan?

      In essence, the Master Cleanse Diet a fasting plan, since you cannot eat or drink anything other than a special lemonade and laxative tea. It is different from other fasting plans, because you can stay on the Master Cleanse for as long as you like (the plan claims that it has been safely done for up to one month). Once you have completed detoxifying your body, a raw food diet is encouraged.
      What is the Master Cleanse Diet plan?

      The Master Cleanse Diet is designed to do two things: detoxify the body (The Agitator) and eliminate these toxins from the body before they can be reabsorbed and poison the body once again (The Rinse Cycle). Special lemonade needs to be made and consumed to enable the detoxification. The lemonade consists of fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and spring or purified water. The maple syrup supplies the sugar needed for energy and needed minerals, since you will not be eating any food. The cayenne pepper breaks up the mucus and dilates the blood vessels. It is estimated that it will cost about .50 per day to make the lemonade, as well as the salt water mixture and laxative tea that are also recommended.

      If you get sick of the lemonade, you can occasionally have some mint tea to give your taste

    • ANSWER:
      You don't say why you want to do this to your body. Have you pain, diahrroea, constipation? Your first point of call should be your own Doctor if you are concerned. You should never self-medicate, take professional advice first. Your body is very clever and will give you signals when things are wrong. Perhaps you are not eating properly - are you getting enough fibre by eating wholemeal bread, leafy vegetables, and avoiding fast food and too many carbs? Never, never do an enema by yourself, that is so dangerous. Go to your Doc and ask for his/her advice. Take care.

    • ANSWER:
      I just bought quick trim iso am/pm 14 day cleanse at cvs for . I think it's at cvs....i read alot of reviews before buying it and i got scared because everyone was saying they were feeling nausea. I've been taking it 4 days now and it's a total of 8 pills a day. I love it so far...i have no side effects, i'm not really hungry either...It's just hard to break away from the habit of eating when bored. I have been peeing NON STOP! (which is a good thing) It suggests that you drink a gallon of water a day and it also includes a 2 week diet plan that i feel is a little harsh. It's an 800 calorie a day diet which is totally uncalled for. I am kind of doing my own thing...i eat fruit, veggies, plain oatmeal...egg whites, chicken breast, tuna...umm TONS of water..turkey...and for days when i am very hungry i got a couple 400 calorie smart ones. Eliminating bread and cheese and sugars you'll immediately loose weight regardless of if you are following the 800 calorie diet or not. Today i have been going to the bathroom alot. I guess the colon detox is kicking in. I am happy about it. I feel less bloated. I haven't weighed myself at all but i know i lost at least 3 pounds so far just by the way my clothes fit. I think this is a great jump start for eating healthy and as long as you exercise you will see a tremendous difference!! The only negative for me is i do not feel a ton of energy but that's probably because i work at a busy salon and i am used to slamming down tons of coffee and red bulls everyday....these pills don't have nearly that much caffeine in them but if you aren't used to drinking coffee then you'll totally feel the energy. Hope this helped!

  42. QUESTION:
    Has anyone actually tried acai berry and colon cleanse to loose weight and does it actually work?

    • ANSWER:
      PLEASE DON'T BUY THE ACAI BERRY OR COLON CLEANSE - THEY DON'T WORK.

      The acai berry and colon cleanse products that you see all over the internet are a complete scam. Recently a company was sued for over ,000,000 for ripping people off with the acai berry supplements. The reason they are bad is simple, they use the waste products from the juice when making the colon cleanse product.

      So basically, you're paying for waste products.

      Also, they charge you each month - and it can be extremely difficult for you get off the subscription list (stop them from taking your money) It costs these companies around to make a bottle of pills and they sell it to you for - not to mention they don't work for weight loss. Please don't buy the acai berry, they are completely rubbish.

      I've seen so many people be caught by this scam and it really saddens me, please don't be one of them. I understand that you want to lose weight and are looking for options, the acai berry is not one of them.

      If you do want to lose weight and get into shape, then I recommend you visit http://www.sixpackabsadvice.com as I've been using their product for 2 months now and have the body I've wanted all my life. They also helped me avoid getting scammed by the doddgy acai berry companies.

      To conclude, please don't get scammed by the acai berry companies, the pills don't work. Anybody that says they do work, is after one thing: YOUR MONEY.

    What are the benefits of getting a colon cleansing?

    How much does it cost to get one?

    Are you glad you got it done? Do you feel better, cleaner, etc?

    • ANSWER:
      Good health begins in the colon. Remember, the colon is our bodies sewer system, and like all sewers, they need to be flushed out once in a while. Ive had many colonics/enemas over the past 40yrs and enjoyed all of them, they make me feel like a million $ afterward. As for the cost, it depends on where you live, here in northern Ca/western Nv, it runs about -0. Give it a try, you might like it. Good luck.

  44. 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.

It can be bought online. Online there is a free trial, try it out for 30 days and do not have to pay for it. Do not have to pay even for shipping and handling cost. Shipped free and it is a full months package is free.
      It is real easy comes with instructions.

    Best way to begin weight loss?

    Such as
    colon cleanse?
    body detox?
    CLA supplements?

    Anything like that to boost the beginning of my workout?

    • ANSWER:
      The ultimate way to lose extra fat will be a combination of choosing the right diet and exercising the right areas. There really are no shortcuts. Colon cleanses and detoxes are temporary.

      The three things to really focus on for permanent weight loss are as follows.:

      - Raising your metabolism

      By speeding up your metabolism, your system is of course burning more calories. One of several simplest ways to begin this is to require a brisk 10 minute walk every couple of hours through the day. You can even encourage one’s body of burning more calories by drinking at least four pints of iced water a day (the calories are being used through the process one’s body uses to get hot the water before taking it in into your system). Which contains a cleansing effect so helping eradicate any fat which has been released.

      - Eating the right foods

      Some foods naturally increase your metabolism for a couple hours following them. Others take more energy to digest than they contain. Eating lots of fibre can also help cleanse one’s body of fat and makes your gastrointestinal system more cost-effective. Low fat dairy foods and vegetables which contain high degrees of calcium also encourage the discharge of stored fat, especially throughout the waist

      - Exercising the correct sections of your tummy

      As opposed to what you are able expect, carrying out a hundred situps and crunches every morning will never flatten your stomach. The vicinity of this tummy that stores fat is really behind the stomach muscles you associate with a “six-pack”. The simplest way to lose unwanted fat within the stomach can be done when you are vehicle, at your desk or sat watching TV. Simply imagine you are hoping to “hold your tummy in”.

      Recreate the muscles tension you would employ on this scenario and tense/release this muscle 10 or 15 times. You can do this regularly because you like with the day and really should start noticing a change for your waistline in just a two weeks.

      By using a Pilates ball is another great way of exercising the mid region. I now sit on one in my office rather than a chair. At all times We’re working inside my computer, my stomach and back muscles have been toned naturally as my body system adjusts to balancing on the golf ball.

      To recap, the obvious way to lose excess fat is to merge the easy exercises I’ve got mentioned, by incorporating of your “negative calorie foods” (carrots, oranges, broccoli, cabbage) part of a reduced fat diet in order to encourage your metabolism to hurry up a bit when using the techniques I’ve described.

  48. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to detox your system for a UA?
    I have two days to erase YEARS, what works best?

    • ANSWER:
      Well-good luck in finding something -Go to a HealthFood Store and ask.Do Not recall specific names but have seen several products made specifically for that purpose. One you take shortly appox 1 1/2 hr before the test. I'd start drinking water just about nom-stop except when you sleep NOW and if you mix some BROWN Vinegar like 3-4 tablespoons into 1cup even better. Drink enough to fill bladder-takes approx 30minutes for bladder to fill then after you Void drink again and so on and so on. These substances store in the tissues of the liver ,kidneys esp although am sure in some of the other organs too but most stored in the liver so any product that detoxifies the liver. I'd do a liver detox,a whole system cleanse,a colon cleanse-drink the vinegar water like crazy(Vinegar also carries toxins out of the system and the brown vinegar is high in potassium and other beneficial minerals and vitamins.) Since the residues are also stored in Hair do a vinegar tratment-actually good for hair mix 2tablespoons in 1/cup water and saturate scalp and hair and leave on-vinegar smell goes away in approx 5-10 minutes and makes it soft and shiney to boot. Wish you a lot of luck. i have to do periodic tests at my employ and the lab they send me to is so lax do not check at all not even asking to remove jackets and so on.You could also do a test that you pay for before you take the company test costs approx .for same day results but must go early morning to get afternoon results.I once ws asked to one the next day,also had years but next day said I couldn't find and found reason not to take for a week-did the vinegar water like crazy and passed.

  49. QUESTION:
    dose acai berry supplements and colon cleanser really work?
    i have seen tons of result site of this stuff, and is it safe for me a teen to try it?

    • ANSWER:
      Colon health is a significant factor in your total wellbeing. Most north Americans consume a diet which is downright unhealthy, and it would be smart to take whatever steps available to better the health of the colon and gastrointestinal tract. On the other hand, you want to avoid falling a victim to invented health claims, overblown data, and absolutely untrue assertions geared to scaring you into buying supplements. Especially considering the high cost of the supplements, this advice makes sense.

      It is not just the occasional dishonest seller of the colon cleanses who is taking you to the cleaners but also many of the manufacturers. It is debatable who is at greater fault. Think about this: a colon cleanse which contains mainly psyllium husks and a few herbs in addition will sell for about while a psyllium husk supplement by itself will sell for about .

      Many of the herbs associated with psyllium husk cleansers have very little effect other than to prevent cramping or promoting overall wellbeing. You could mix up a colon cleanse recipe yourself with only inexpensive psyllium husks, vitamin and mineral supplements, and a healthy intake of water.

  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.

Gallbladder And Liver Cleanse Recipe

The oil cleansing method, also known as OCM, consists of using natural oils to wash your face. It may sound counterintuitive, especially if you have oily skin that is prone to break-outs. But the truth of the matter is that the natural oils you gently apply to your skin will dissolve the dirt and oils trapped in your pores.

Grape seed oil is very, very light and is a good replacement for EVOO because people sometimes experience breakouts when going the EVOO route. If you choose grape seed oil or not, I highly, super highly suggest you invest in jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is not technically an oil, it's a type of wax that closely mimics the properties of our facial oils. It is highly moisturizing and even just using this alone, you'll see your skin look much better.

Clear, glowing, dewy-looking skin, free of blackheads, pimples, and other imperfections seems to be an elusive goal. The skin care industry has been marketing false info regarding properly cleansing and balancing your skin's own natural function. They say Sodium Laureth Sulfate (a foaming agent) is "good" for us, making us believe the more suds, or the squeakier our skin feels, the better.

Before we get into the treatment for today, lets look at acne for a little bit. Now acne is caused by over active sebaceous glands. The sebaceous gland is a hormone that produces an oil called sebum to protect he skin. However there are times when the sebaceous gland produce an excess amount of oil. When this occurs, the oil accumulates and get thick and sticky. This thick and sticky oil on the surface of the skin traps dirt and bacteria and clog the pores leading to acne.

Trust me, guys, the oil cleansing method will not break you out at all! There are two main ingredients for the oil cleansing method. All you need is Castor oil and extra virgin olive oil. It's been debated whether you need cold pressed, organic or any other fancy methods. I use regular, store bought oils from CVS and Acme and they work great for me. Don't think you have to buy the expensive alternatives, the cheap one's work just as well.

The colon, gallbladder, and liver flush takes time. The process will have an active part that will usually last from the intake of the olive oil and lemon juice through noon of the following day. Sunday morning & Saturday night is the right time for you to take this if you work during the week. Also consider eating a protein and fat free diet during the day. I myself eat during this time organic apples. Eating fruits is simple and won't take time to prepare and therefore it is easier to avoid thinking about any food too much.

By balancing more drying clay treatments with oils, you can help balance the oil production in acne prone areas on the face and body. Clay based topicals like Bentonite or green clay masks can work excellent for spot treatments or to pull out toxins and oils from a breakout. However, clay treatments can work even better when balanced with hydration. Many times skin problems can get worse by over drying the skin with common irritating acne products like benzoyl peroxide.

Olive oil is obtained from the fruit 'olive'. It contains oleic acid, palmitic acid and fatty acids. It has antioxidant properties and is low in saturated fats. It is known to have medicinal properties. It is popularly used by medical practitioners to cleanse the entire system including the gall bladder and liver. Its properties help in preventing Asthma, gall-stones and sluggishness.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    good home recipes to getting rid of acne?
    i would like to know some good home recipes on getting rid of acne. without buying acne products at the store.

    • ANSWER:
      In the US, millions of dollars are being spent each year on acne medication, and acne skin care products; however, as most people who suffer from acne can attest, the majority of these products only give temporary relief, with the added downside of mild to severe side effects.

      If you're someone who's struggling with mild to moderate acne, you can control it with natural products you can find around the house, or your garden. Here are 5 great acne home remedy recipes that you can prepare right in your kitchen. These are things you can use safely to keep your pores closed, to treat surface infection, reduce swelling, and soften your skin.

      Thyme As An Astringent

      Thyme is excellent for treating acne. Add about 1 tablespoon of dried thyme, or a small bunch of fresh thyme to 1 cup of boiling water, and steep for at least fifteen minutes. Strain and store in a jar in the refrigerator. Apply to skin as an astringent to tighten pores. Keep in the refrigerator for about one week.

      Calendula as a Toner

      Calendula (marigold) is one of those power herbs that has many uses. Taken internally, calendula has been used to reduce inflammation, as a detox to cleanse the liver and gallbladder, and to treat digestive disorders. Calendula is also an excellent skin care herb for the treatment of acne. It soothes inflammation, and it's effective in healing damaged tissue caused by acne.

      Use calendula toner as part of your daily acne skin care regimen. To make the toner, add one teaspoon of dried calendula flowers to one cup of boiling water, and steep until it cools. Strain, and store in a clean jar with a tightly fitting lid. Keep in the refrigerator for about a week.

      Keep Your Pores Clean With Garlic.

      There have been many reports evidencing the healing benefits of garlic when applied to the skin to treat acne. Apply a paste of two crushed cloves of garlic to the face taking care not to get any of it in your eyes. Leave on for no more than 15 minutes. If the smell bothers you, lather your face with pure African black soap, and rinse with warm water.

      This is a good treatment for acne, but you should use it with extreme caution if you have sensitive skin as garlic is very strong, and can burn, or irritate your skin. It's recommended that you do a skin test before applying it to your full face. You can also use garlic juice by crushing the garlic and squeezing the juice through a garlic press. Do spot treatment directly on the pimples, and zits. Leave on for 5 minutes then rinse with warm water.

      Baking Soda As A Mask And Exfoliator

      You can use baking soda to treat acne either as a mask or a scrub. When used as a facial mask, baking powder will absorb all the surface oil, tighten your pores, and leave your skin incredibly soft. To make the mask, mix baking soda with a little water into a paste. Apply to your face, and leave on for ten minutes, or until the mask is dry. Rinse with warm water.

      You can also use baking soda as a scrub to eliminate flaking skin, and excess dirt from you pores. Rinse your face in warm water. While your skin is still dripping wet, begin to massage the baking powder into your skin in a circular motion, apply more water as needed. Follow with your favorite toner or astringent.

      Clay Mask

      Clay has been used as a healing therapy since ancient times. Many animals in the wild, and primitive tribes around the world have used clay instinctively to eliminate toxins from the body, to regulate digestive problems, and to treat skin disorders.

      A clay facial mask does wonders for any kind of skin. In the case of a acne, regular use of clay masks reduce infection, swelling, and help close the pores while leaving you with a glowing skin. If you chose to use clay masks to treat acne, I recommend that you get pure living, therapeutic clay such as montmorillonite, bentonite, or pascalite. There are many prepared clay masks that you can find over the counter; however, most of them contain other ingredients, and preservatives.

      As a remedy to treat acne, I recommend you apply a mask made of pure living clay at least once a week. Mix the clay with water to make a paste, apply to your face avoiding the eyes. Leave on until the clay dries then, rinse off with warm water.

  3. QUESTION:
    Has anyone ever heard of a liver cleansing that you can do at home?
    Did you try it, and do you think it really worked?

    I was reading about this, and you're supposed to drink a lot of apple juice for 6 days and then drink water mixed with epsom salts and then another drink with grapefruit right before you sleep, then one more drink with epsom salt in the morning. Anyone heard of this? Anyone do it and can you tell me what you thought?
    This supposedly releases all of the gall stones that have accumulated in the liver. You poop them out after drinking all of this stuff.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, yes, yes...I have done approx. 10

      A great place to talk to others and learn about it and post questions during your liver/gallbladder cleanse is the Liver Flush Forum at www.curezone.com. You're never alone in what you are experiencing...

      Good docs support this. The ones who would prefer to have your $$$$ for surgery to cut the BG out, NEVER will encourage you! Another example...loads of people take the stones to their docs/have analyzed by labs...the docs who are against anything that takes money out of their pockets will deny they are gallstones...but ER docs and those who see these stones all the time KNOW they are gallstones.

      I am getting ready to start them again this weekend actually...I prefer the Coke Flush (look under recipes at the top of CZ Liver Flush Support page)...get loads more out with that one and it's not as nasty to choke down.

      The goal is to get stones....if you are really congested, you will get what we call 'sand' or 'chaff' and it looks like cornmeal (broken stones)....if you are MASSIVELY congested... you will only get colored water for a flush or two.

      GOOD LUCK!! :)

  4. 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.

    All Natural Liver and gallbladder cleanse question?
    i did a cleanse with olive oil..garlic..and grapefruit... about 200 pea size, green things came out but nothing as large as the photos i found from the cleanse recipe online.. what are those pea size green things? and do these homemade remedies really work? does anyone have any first hand experience with this? thanks

    • ANSWER:
      No they don't work, they don't do anything. They are a scam.

      The green things are not stones. Here is the explanation -

      From Quackwatch:
      They are "bile-stained "soaps" produced by partial saponification (soap formation) of the oil. A recent demonstration found that mixing equal volumes of oleic acid (the major component of olive oil) and lemon juice produced several semi-solid white balls after a small volume of potassium hydroxide solution was added. After air-drying at room temperature, these balls became quite solid and hard. When formed in the intestine, these objects absorb bile and become green."
      http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/flushes.html

      EDIT:
      Tony - your are attacking the person, not the argument. What exactly is scientifically wrong this explanation? And putting forward survey results from websites selling products is not a valid argument either. At best its anecdotal, at worse it's either totally biased or completely made up.

      If you don't like quackwatch, how about the Mayo Clinic?

  7. 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.

  8. QUESTION:
    I have been suffering from Gall-stones for 11 years! How can I deal with my gallbladder?

      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.

  13. QUESTION:
    Information on vinegar, lemon & lime juice, honey, maple syrup?
    Okay so much is going on now-a-days with Bragg's vinegar, lemon, lime juice, unfiltered raw natural honey, and maple syrup? How are all of these suppose to support the body? Does anyone have any suggestions on these remedies that are suppose to clean the gallbladder, liver, the body etc.? I'm just trying to see if any of you have done these cleanses & what were your results? Were you happy? Do you still conduct the cleanses periodically? Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      These are all great whole food products. You can attain recipes that mix them in various ways. A pure, organic, aged vinegar (I prefer Italian white wine vinegar) contains natural acetic acid and acetobacteria - naturally occurring beneficial vinegar probiotics. Lemon/lime is acid to taste and highly beneficially alkaline in the body. It is know to assist in detoxification, targeting the kidneys as well as helping to balance pH. True, unheated, raw honey is an amazing food. It has legendary immune health benefits to support healthy digestion, skin, energy levels and to soothe sore throats. It is full of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Maple syrup, as an excellent source of manganese and a good source of zinc. Hope this helps. Best of health to you.

  14. QUESTION:
    What is the saying which has something to do with a cold and a fever?
    My nan always used to have this saying and I can't remember if it went 'Drown a fever, starve a cold' or ' Feed a fever Starve a cold' or starve a fever drown a cold' I just can't remember how it went!!!!!
    Does anyone know which saying I mean, Its just that I have a really bad cold and want to get rid of it, I am a big believer in these old sayings!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Starve a fever - feed a cold.

      Fevers usually end up making you nausous because your antibodies are fighting off the infection or bacteria in your system which is why your bodies temperature rises to create more white blood cells and make them more active.
      Colds are the minor infection that comes from a germ not a bacteria. Your body produces more fluids during a cold to expell the germ - ie - your nose runs, you need to use the restroom alot ect. This is why they say to hydrate your body more during a cold rather during a fever. Your kidneys, liver, and gallbladder work together during a germ infestation to cleanse the body. If you have a fever with a stomach virus or intestinal virus it is best to hydrate your body to cleanse out the germ (virus) and to fight off the bacteria (fever producer) should not be fed if at all possible. If the fever lasts more than 3 days followed by diarrhea and vomiting you need to see a doctor immediately to protect yourself from the dehydration and antibiotics will need to be administered.
      I hope you feel better soon. If you want I can give you my - Kill all soup recipe. It works!

  15. QUESTION:
    somebody advise me to flush and cleanse my liver?
    A friend advise me to take a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice in equal proportion in the morning before breakfast to cleanse the liver. Is it wise.

    • ANSWER:
      THIS IS THE RECIPE AND HOW IT WORKS. JUST FOLLOW DIRECTIONS
      *

      1 gallon apple juice (freshly pressed)
      *

      2 ounces orthophosphoric acid (Phosfood from Standard Process or Ortho phos from Nutra-Dyn)
      *

      Enema bag and colon tube
      *

      Coffee
      *

      Epsom Salts
      *

      Whipping cream and berries
      *

      Olive oil

      Protocol:

      1.

      Add one bottle (2 ounces) of orthophosphoric acid to the gallon of apple juice. Shake and refrigerate. Over the next three to five days, drink the gallon of juice (3 to 4 8-ounce glasses a day) between meals. Be sure to rinse your mouth out with baking soda and/or brush your teeth after drinking the juice to prevent the acid from damaging the teeth. Eat normally during the liver flush.
      2.

      On the day following whatever day you finish the gallon of juice, eat your normal breakfast and lunch.
      3.

      Two hours after lunch, drink 1–2 tablespoons of Epsom Salts dissolved in warm water.
      4.

      Four hours after lunch, do a one pint coffee enema.
      5.

      Five hours after lunch, drink 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts dissolved in warm water.
      6.

      Six or seven hours after lunch, eat a dinner of heavy whipping cream and frozen or fresh berries – as much as desired.
      7.

      At bedtime, drink 1/2 cup of olive oil. A small amount of orange, grapefruit, or lemon juice may be added if desired. Immediately after drinking the oil, go to bed and lie on your right side with knees drawn up for 30 minutes. You may feel nauseated during the night. This is due to the release of stored toxins from the gallbladder and liver. This is normal and a sign that the protocol is working.
      8.

      Upon arising in the morning, do a coffee enema.

      The orthophosphoric acids helps remove calcium and lipids (fats) from the arteries and normalizes cholesterol metabolism. The phosphoric acid working with the malic acid found in apple juice dissolves and softens gallstones. The magnesium in the Epsom Salts relaxes the sphincter of the gallbladder and bile ducts, allowing for the easy passage of the softened, shrunken stones. Finally, the cream and oil cause a strong contraction of the gallbladder and liver, forcing out stored wastes, bile, and stones which easily pass into the small intestine. These wastes and stones are then excreted.

  16. QUESTION:
    How can I find out if I have liver damage / liver disease without a doctor's appointment? Is there a self test

    • ANSWER:
      not sure that you can do a self test to find out if you have liver disease, but i can suggest you do a liver cleanse to get rid of stones (everyone has them, if they've never cleansed before).

      go to the following website & learn about liver & gallbladder stones & how to remove them. having stones in your body can cause a slew of diseases. i've done the cleanse a couple of times and it's amazing the stuff that comes out!

  17. QUESTION:
    What is the Exact recipe for the apple fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Be sure to drink lots of warm water so that the toxins can be carried out of you more rapidly.

      It is very simple:

      1. Eat only organic apples all day long.

      I buy as many different varieties as I can to mix things up a bit and I usuallly eat 4 to 10 apples depending on my hunger. Don't worry about how many you eat. When you're feeling hungry simply eat an apple and your hunger subsides. I like to cut my apples into quarters and core them...much nicer!

      2. Drink warm water all day long.

      This is key! I always fill up a glass wine bottle with half cold water and then half boiling water and keep it with me or near me whenever I'm at home. Just get into the habit of drinking warm water. Cold water isn't good for digestion and elimination - but warm water stimulates peristalsis.

      3. Do this for 3 days.

      4. On the night of the third night take 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

      This was Edgar Cayce's idea way back when (before Hulda Clark made liver flushes popular) and is based on the same principle as the liver flushes that are popular now. When you don't eat any fat for days, your liver and gallbladder store up bile. When you flood your system with fat (olive oil) all at once like that - your gallbladder and liver release all the stored bile and push out the cholesterol stones that have formed.

      Note: pay attention to how you feel during this fast and what part of your body (if any) feels achy. Toxins are releasing! Be kind to yourself during the fast. Let any emotions that have been pent up be leeched out of you along with all the other toxins. Let it all go, let it all out...

      I suggest keeping a journal during the fast to see what bubbles up and needs your attention. Remember that you are cleansing yourself of all unwanted toxins: emotional, mental and physical.

      Happy Cleansing!

  18. QUESTION:
    what can I expect from stomach cancer?
    started as breast cancer and progressed to stomach,leg,bone,brain and liver cancer.Is there a successful treatment for this. that you are aware of.

    • ANSWER:
      I think reading the information below, and the referenced reports will help you a great deal.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      CLEANSING
      The best way of cleansing is to fast.

      http://www.phifoundation.org/menses.html
      http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?ID=1996

      but if a patient is too weak for that, or does not fancy the idea, then alternative cleanses are available.

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.

      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

  19. 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.

      Lymenet:

      http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php

      I have a few tips though regardless...

      1) Have you done a parasite cleanse or a gallbladder liver cleanse? Some of the recipes are pretty simple. If you can expel all the toxins that are clogging your liver, your skin and hair and everything will improve.

      http://curezone.com/faq/q.asp?a=4,99,700,2914&q=39

      2) Get a shower filter. My hair was like straw from all the chlorine buildup alone. It really helped improve both my skin and my hair both!

      3) Don't buy your haircare products in the supermarket or drugstore. They are loaded with chemical toxins which only put more of a load on your liver. Buy organic shampoos and conditioners only from the healthfood store.

      3) Stop milk products and ALL grains. Eat organic only. Beans, veggies, go easy on the fruits and sugars. Include grapeseed oil and sea salt in your diet. Grapeseed oil is high in vitamin E; sea salt is high in minerals. Milk thistle is an excellent herb to jump start your liver.

      4) Stop using caustic detergents and fabric softeners. Ditto for dryer sheets. Use only organic detergents (I use Sun and Earth or Seventh Generation products), and include baking soda in your wash. This will decrease the chemicals you absorb through the skin.

      5) Take baking soda baths. Sweating is an excellent way to detox, and the baking soda removes toxins from your skin.

      I have a feeling if you just concentrate on detoxing and regenerating your liver, your hair will improve. It might take about 3-6 months for you to see a difference, but it can happen. Don't take your diagnosis as something you have to accept though - you can reverse this!

  22. QUESTION:
    Health - what kind of diet is recommended for persons with gull-stones?

    • ANSWER:
      Do not avoid all fats unless you are in attack or close to attack mode. Even then, a small amount of the flax oil in the beet recipe can be helpful. Fat-free and low-fat diets can be a cause for gallbladder problems as well as too much of the wrong fats. The body needs fats. Use omega 3 oils like flax or hemp. These are both delicious on salads. Cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil is also recommended. Use with vinegar or fresh lemon juice.

      Beets
      Cucumbers
      Green beans - are NOT the same as dried
      Okra
      Sweet potatoes
      Avocados - a good way to get needed fats directly from food
      Vinegars all types
      Garlic and onions help with liver cleansing but not processed types like flakes or powder. But some people have trouble digesting them so pay attention
      Shallots
      Tomatoes - ripe
      cold water fish
      Lemons (lemon juice in the morning with hot water helps to clean the liver)
      Grapes and fresh organic grape juice
      apples, berries, papaya, pears
      Omega 3 oils like flax or hemp. Use these with fresh lemon juice or vinegar on your salads. DO NOT COOK flax oil.

      Vegetable juices - Beet and cucumber are especially helpful to gallbladder You can add other green vegetables like tender baby greens, swiss chard, dandelion greens, beet greens, celery, carrots -- avoid the cabbage family)

      Avoid all fruit juices except organic grape juice and organic apple (self-juiced is best).

      All the vegetables listed above for juicing are good. Use baby mixed organic greens for salads and avoid the bitter greens for now.

      Fiber such as found in fruits and vegetables and guar gum is also good.

      Hope this helps you.

    My mother died of Breast Cancer at the age of 39. She also had Cervical Cancer when she was younger.?
    What age should I start getting mammograms? How much more of a chance do I have to develope cancer than an ordinary person?Do you recommend the test they have to see if you carry the gene for Breast Cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      Take responsiblity for your own health, and ignore the Cancer Industry.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

  27. QUESTION:
    Anyone know anything about some doctors dont think removal of the gallbladder is a good thing???
    I am getting a scan done soon to check my gallbladder cause i am having some problems that seem to be indicating it mightnt be functioning correctly.i know its not done in every case but i know that the gallbladder is removed altogether in certain cases.my doc said briefly your body can do without the gallbladder but he said ideally it wouldnt be desirable to take it out.a few other people have told me some people dont think its a good idea removing the gallbladder.it may never happen to me but i would just like to know the reasons why some people are against it.i cant find anything with search engines.thank you everyone

    • ANSWER:
      The above answers are essentially correct. There is no physiologic reason that the gallbladder CANNOT be removed, however, it IS surgery and if surgery isn't necessary it should not be done. Surgery, even at it's safest, has risks. If there is very little risk in doing a surgical procedure, then we can be a little bit looser with offering that procedure in questionable cases. However, there has to be SOME reason to believe that surgery will be of some benefit, otherwise the risks, even if small, are unjustified.

      Some people believe that there are alternative methods for clearing the biliary system of calculi (stones). These beliefs are, unfortunately, in error. People without a basic understanding of the chemistry of bile and its stones will sometimes suggest a "gallbladder cleanse" as an alternative to surgery. There are a number of gallbladder cleansing recipes that I have seen. They frequently include that a large volume of olive oil and some lemon juice be ingested. Olive oil, as a fat source, will cause gallbladder contraction and thus pain, for those who have gallstones which cause symptoms with gallbladder contraction. Additionally, large volumes of oil will overwhelm the digestive function of lipase, a fat degrading enzyme, and cause rich oil to be delivered all the way into the colon. Oils and lemon juice can combine together to make semisolids which are then passed in the feces. The end result is that people take this "cleanse", experience gallbladder pain, and then poop out little greenish balls, and claim that they've passed all their stones! Of course, they've passed a bunch of oily stool, and the stones are still there. Additionally, causing strong gallbladder contractions in this type of scenario - in a symptomatic patient - is something that could, in principle, precipitate an acute gallbladder disaster.

      Bile, which is stored and concentrated by the gallbladder between meals, passes continuously into the intestine after the gallbladder is removed. Bile is actually reabsorbed by the gut and reused by the liver. People without gallbladders only occassionally report some mild diarrhea symptoms directly after surgery, and almost never have any long lasting gastrointestinal function changes. Many years back, surgeons actually studied this, but it seems to have become a non-entity after that. I personally have never seen a patient who has chronic ongoing symptoms after the gallbladder was removed, that I can attribute to the biliary system. Occassionally, there will be people with chronic maldigestive symptoms, complaints of "bloating", nonspecific abdominal pains, constipation and sometimes diarrhea as well, after a gallbladder surgery. I am convinced that in most of these cases, the gallbladder was never really the problem in the first place, and it was removed without a positive or negative effect.

      By senior life, about 20% of people will have developed gallstones. However, only about 1 or 2% of these people per year will have developed symptoms. Most people who have gallstones never have a problem.

      A small number of people may have classic symptoms suggestive of gallbladder/duct pain, but then an ultrasound is unrevealing. Of these patients, there are occassionally people that we can prove have a dysfunction of the gallbladder of a different type. This is termed "biliary dyskinesia". There is some science behind it, but the reality is that gallbladder removal is so safe and so well tolerated by patients, that as long as we have SOME data to suggest that the gallbladder is the root of the problem, we feel justified in suggesting to remove it.

      If a surgeon suggests to remove your gallbladder, it is because they feel that the minimal risk of that procedure is outweighed by the potential and probability of the procedure being of benefit to you.

      I hope that helps!

  28. QUESTION:
    anyone know of a all natural lung cleanse?
    i have breathing problems,, i have done the all natural liver and gallbladder cleanse,, is a lung cleane available,, and if you have done it did it work

    • ANSWER:
      This is a good supplement for the lungs..heard many people testifying about how good it use. One is for bronchitis and one isn't so research and be sure to get the right one. Here is what they look like. http://www.nextag.com/clear-lungs-blue-120-capsules/search-html

      Linda Rector Page has some of the best books at there..
      The first link is her main book with recommendations for hundreds of health problems. the second link is to her book detoxification and it contains a lung cleanse http://www.healthyhealing.com/product.esiml?PID=366

      http://www.healthyhealing.com/product.esiml?PID=539

      I also found a lung cleanse here. This is one of the best herbal companies selling only organic and wildcrafted bulk herbs. They also sell this lung cleanse formula..go here for information..

      http://www.blessedherbs.com/?af=0022&sp=3691&gclid=CPjw0IeviooCFSW8WAodXiYrQQ

      Also lobelia and wild cherry are lung herbs. also check curezone.com for advise and recommendations in the forums and herbdoc.com for formulas..best on the market

      Good luck!

      Also another good thing is to go on a juice fast. when I have a cold and have cloughed for weeks as I have great difficulty shaking them (didn't try the things I mentioned as didn't know then), I go on a juice fast and within a couple days I am well. I did take drops of certain essential oils with them..I think I took them from Linda lung cleanse suggestions. Use just real juiced produce, herb and green teas and potassium broth (recipe here)..make sure your bowels are working well by maybe taking intestinal cleanse one and two with the fast (herbdoc.com)

  30. QUESTION:
    Gallbladder Cleanse?
    Has anyone ever done a gallbladder cleanse? Did it work? Did you have any problems? I'm thinking of doing one in the coming weeks and I've done a lot of reading about it, but they all make it seem so simple. What are your experiences?

    • ANSWER:
      If you have bile stones - it is easier and 100% effective - to use homoeopathic medicine

      any way u can follow this if u can
      -------------------------------------------------

      Method 1
      Liver cleanse and gallbladder cleanse flush

      Ingredients

      1/2 CupOlive Oil Extra Virgin (= 1.25 dl)

      1 Big grapefruit (2 small) (Or 3 lemons)

      4 tablespoon EPSOM salts = ( MgSO4 + 7H2O)

      (EPSOM salts = Magnesium Sulphate = EPSOMITE = Magnesium Sulfate Heptahydrate)

      3 cups water (=750 dl)

      (P.S .!! 1 cup = 250 ml = 2.5 dl = 0.25 l )

      You can substitute 3 cups water (=750 dl) (that is used in this recipe to dissolve Epsom salt) with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit juice, or freshly pressed apple juice . That way you will not feel unpleasant taste of Magnesium Sulphate
      ( = Magnesium Sulfate = Epsom salt = MgSO4 + 7H2O) ]

      [If using lemon juice, do not blend juice with oil.
      Drink little oil, little juice, from 2 differnt cups.

      If you mix oil and juice, it may (it doesn't happens always) sligtly congell, and get a slimy consitence that is not easy to swallow.
      It may become slimy.

      Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day.

      Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they could prevent success. Stop the parasite program and kidney herbs too, the day before.

      Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal with fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves or honey (no butter or milk), baked potato or other vegetables with salt only. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.

      2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink after 2 o'clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tbs. in 3 cups water and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings, 3/4 (three fourths) cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only).

      [ You can substitute 3 cups water with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit juice, or freshly pressed apple juice, it tastes better .]

      6:00 PM. Drink one serving 3/4 (three fourths cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts. If you did not prepare this ahead of time, mix 1 tbs. in 3/4 (three fourth) cup water now. You may add 1/8 (one eight) tsp. vitamin C powder to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil (ozonated, if possible) and grapefruit out to warm up.

      Alternative Schedule 1: Omit the first Epsom Slats dose at 6 p.m. Take only one dose, waiting till 8 p.m. Change nothing else. Many people still get stones with one less dose. If you do not, do the full course next time. "The Cure For HIV and AIDS" By Hulda Clark pg.585

      8:00 PM. Repeat by drinking another 3/4 (three fourths) cup of Epsom salts.You haven't eaten since two o'clock, but you won't feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.

      9:45 PM. Pour 1/2 (half) cup (measured) olive oil into the pint jar. Add 2 drops HCl to sterilize. Wash grapefruit twice in hot water and dry; squeeze by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with fork. You should have at least 1/2 (half) cup, more (up to 3/4 (three fourths) cup) is best. You may use part lemonade. Add this to the olive oil. Also add Black Walnut Tincture. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh grapefruit juice does this).

      Now visit the bathroom one or more time, even if it makes you late for your ten o'clock drink. Don't be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.

      10:00 PM. Drink the potion you have mixed. Take 4 ornithine capsules with the first sips to make sure you will sleep through the night. Take 8 if you already suffer from insomnia. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. You may use oil and vinegar salad dressing, or straight honey to chase it down between sips. Have these ready in a tablespoon on the kitchen counter. Take it all to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).

      Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don't. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time. Don't clean up the kitchen. As soon as the drink is down walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!). Go to sleep, you may fail to get stones out if you don't.

      Next morning. Upon awakening take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea wait until it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don't take this potion before 6:00 am.

      2 Hours Later. Take your fourth (the last) dose of Epsom salts. You may go back to bed again.

      "The Cure For HIV and AIDS" By Hulda Clark pg.585
      Alternative Schedule 2: After taking the first dose of Epsom salts in the morning, wait two hours and take a second dose of the oil mixture (but only 1/2 cup)and go back to bed. After two more hours take another dose of Epsom salts. This schedule can increase the number of stones you remove."

      After 2 More Hours you may eat. Start with fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.

      How well did you do?

      Expect diarrhea in the morning.

      Use a flashlight to look for gallstones in the toilet with the bowel movement.

      Use colander to make sure you collect all stones

      Liver flush - Use of Colander

      Look for the green kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones, not food residue. Only bile from the liver is pea green. The bowel movement sinks but gallstones float because of the cholesterol inside.

      Calcified stones and stones containing protein may sink, but colander will catch all stones.

      Count them all roughly, whether tan or green. You will need to total 2,000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies or bursitis or upper back pains permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days, but as the stones from the rear travel forward, they give you the same symptoms again. You may repeat cleanses at two week intervals. Never cleanse when you are ill.

      [HPS editors note: I started passing chaff through normal bowel movements after my 4th colon cleansing fast, approximately after a total of 4x14= 56 days of total colon cleansing within 9 months. The chaff continued in normal bowel movements for 8 months! Thousands of tiny stones, looked like small popcorn and small bee pollen granules, others looked like moth wings. Sometime I would drop at one bowel movement 50-100 pea size stones that would float in the water. It was truly an experience. Almost daily for 8 months! When I did my first Dr. Clark's liver cleanse I immediately dropped over 200 pea size green and tan stones, and when I examined them I was shocked. They crushed in my fingers and what I found was pure fat, pure cholesterol. Can you imagine hundred of them. Also in my second liver cleanse I had the same experience].

      Sometimes, the bile ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones. They appear as a "chaff" floating on top of the toilet bowl water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of tiny white crystals. cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging the stones.

      How safe is the liver cleanse? It is very safe. My opinion is based on over 500 cases, including many persons in their seventies and eighties. None went to the hospital; none even reported pain. However it can make you feel quite ill for one or two days afterwards, although in every one of these cases the maintenance parasite program had been neglected. This is why the instructions direct you to complete the parasite and kidney rinse program first.

      This procedure contradicts many modern medical viewpoints. Gallstones are thought to be formed in the gallbladder, not the liver. They are though to be few, not thousands. They are not linked to pains other than gallbladder attacks. It is easy to understand why this thought: by the time you have acute pain attacks, some stones are in the gallbladder, are big enough and sufficiently calcified to see on X-ray, and have caused inflammation there. When the gallbladder is removed the acute attacks are gone, but the bursitis and other pains and digestive problems remain.

      The truth is self-evident. People who have had their gallbladder removed surgically still get plenty of green, bile coated stones, and anyone who cares to dissect their stones can see that the concentric circles and crystals of cholesterol match textbook pictures of "gallstones" exactly."

      -----------------------------------
      Method 2

      A liver cleanse can be easily done from your own home. Here is a widely known liver cleansing recipe, using the following the ingredients:

      * 1 cup olive oil
      * 4 table spoons Epsom salts
      * three cups of fresh grape juice
      * grape fruit

      Choose a day that you are generally feeing well for the liver cleanse. No medications should be taken on that day. For breakfast, eat food without fat. The best method is to have a fruit diet. Select a time to start the liver cleansing procedure. It is better to start in the afternoon. You should stop eating four hours before taking the first course. So if you plan to take the concoction at 1900 hrs, stop eating at 1500 hrs.

      First, mix 4 table spoons of Epsom salts with the three cups of fresh grape juice. This should make four servings. Drink the first serving now. After two hours, take another serving.

      After another two hours, squeeze the grape fruit into a cup. Remove the pulp. It should be at least half the cup. Now add this to the olive oil and shake well to make it watery. Take the concoction and lie down immediately and go to sleep.

      Next morning, on awakening immediately take the third serving of Epsom salt mixture. After two hours, take the remaining serving. After another two hours you can start your normal diet with fruits.

      After completing the recipe, you would probably get diarrhea. When this happens, gallstones will be flushed out with the bowel movement.

      You can undertake a liver cleanse twice in a year. Spring is an ideal time. Never undertake liver cleansing during winter.

      If you are doing a liver cleanse for the first time, it is best to go under the guidance of a natural health practitioner. You want to ensure that you are getting the procedure right and take all necessary precautions. The maintenance of your liver health is crucial; do not overlook the importance of cleansing away your gallstones.

  31. QUESTION:
    Are gallstone cleanses healthy?
    I have had symptoms of gallbladder problems since I was about 21 - so about 7 years now. I have painful attacks, spasms, and cramping which at the time the doctor attributed to IBS after testing for everything else and coming up negative. I haven't had it checked out since, because I don't see the point if they are just going to tell me it is basically nothing and not to eat fat. I already do all that, severely watch what I eat, don't consume meat, and do what I can.

    Recently I found information talking about gallbladder and liver cleanses and was wondering if anyone had any information, advice, or knowledge about this. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Don't know about the liver cleansing part, but gallbladder cleansing is a relatively simple process and can be done at home. A while ago an acupuncture physician told me that I might have a case of gallstones. Instead of treating it however he told me to look up one of the natural recipes online. I did just that, and ended up flushing out a couple dozen stones. I was pretty shocked at the enormous pile that had accumulated in my system, and I'm VERY glad I decided to clean them out. I strongly recommend that you try it too.

      There are a lot of sites out there and any of them should work. Here's the one I decided to follow:

      http://www.relfe.com/gall_stone_cleanse.html

      A side note here, the recipe for this site is pretty 'hardcore', i.e. it's very effective but also very hard to stomach. If you feel you won't be able to take the olive oil like recommended you can perhaps try some other methods using Epsom Salts and the like.

      You'll also develop some pretty serious diarrhea during the few days after the cleanse. However, once you get past the nasty part you'll feel like a new person.

    I am 15 years old.I had my gallbladder removed when I was 14.It's been about 8 months since I had my gallbladder removed.At first I was feeling good but a couple of months later(about 2 or 3) I started feeling nausea and go do diarrhea several times a day.I have gone to the doctor but they just give me medication for the diarrhea(Imodium).How can I get rid of all this.I feel really uncomfortable when I'm in school. Sometimes my teachers dont even let me go to the restroom and thats when I start feeling worried and nervous.Sometimes I even feel like throwing up, but I never do.I dont even like going out to eat becuase of this problem.Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      many people who get their gallbladders removed still suffer from stones (in their liver). you should look into doing a liver cleanse. go to this site for more info (and look at the pix). talk to your parents, too. because if you decide to do the cleanse, it's best they know what you're doing. it's really easy & the cleanse doesn't even last 24 hours.

      hope you get to feeling better.

    • ANSWER:
      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

      A commercial preparation of B17 is available called Laetrile.

      EXERCISE
      Exercise should be sufficient to create a sweat, but not sufficient to make you gasp for breath or feel over-tired. About one hours exercise every day is best.

      DEBUGGING
      There are various theories about how bugs create cancer.

      Hulda Clark suggests that parasites are the cause, and that they can be disposed of by using a zapper.

  36. QUESTION:
    Is the olive oil gallstone flush safe and effective???
    you drink a whole cup of olive oil before bed with lemon juice..... and in the morning you will pass 100's of stones!!!! is this true!!????????

    • ANSWER:
      Not quite....BUT with the proper recipe and done correctly it is :also can rid you of any kidney stones and flushes the toxins out of your body.
      Then follow up with 1 ounce 3 x a time a day of Xango ( see wesite on the bottom of page) to keep you healthy.
      Liver and Gall Bladder Cleanse

      YOU WILL NEED:

      * 2 ounces of cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil

      * 4 ounces of lemon or grapefruit juice (organic)

      * 12 ounce bottle of magnesium citrate

      * 2 or more gallons of freshly made organic apple juice THESE ITEMS CAN BE PURCHASED AT YOUR LOCAL HEALTH FOOD STORE AND DRUG STORE

      PROCEDURE:

      1. For 3 days, drink a minimum of 3 glasses of freshly made organic apple juice. The malic acid in this drink helps to soften and break down gallstones.

      2. On the evening of day 3, drink 2 ounces of olive oil mixed with 4 ounces of either lemon or grapefruit juice. ( mix well in a blender before drinking.)

      3. Lie on your right side for 20 minutes with your right knee as close to your chest as possible This will open the pathway to your gallbladder. Nausea is not unusual.

      4. Before going to bed, drink the 12-ounce bottle of magnesium citrate.

      5. When you awake the next morning and use the bathroom, expect to pass what might be referred to as “sludge.” You may also pass round stones of varying sizes and colors, mostly green. They may float and look much like fuzzy, undigested peas.

      I regularly do liver cleanses and gallbladder flushes just before spring arrives to alleviate my hayfever symptoms. And it does work for me. It is also helpful for many other symptoms and conditions. There are also other types of cleanses that you can do. Do a search on that website as it contains tons of information.

  38. QUESTION:
    gallstones in your gallbladder,how does this happen?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, there. Gallstones are caused by an accumulation of cholesterol, fat and bile that is not adequately expelled by the gall bladder and/or the liver. Good ways to avoid gall stones are to avoid eating hydrogenized fats, avoiding high-cholesterol foods, taking high doses of Lecithin, and others. Although the traditional treatment for gall stones is the removal fo the gall bladder, this treatment is actually very detrimental to the body and does more harm than good. The simplest treatment is to find a gentle, easy liver flush recipe that will slowly but surely purge the gall stones from your gall bladder. Although this treatment is frowned upon and ridiculed by the mainstream medical community, many patients scheduled for gall bladder removal surgery have tried a liver flush and found immediate relief. A simple recipe is to drink a 14-oz glass of mineral water combined with 2 TBLSP lemon juice and 1 TBLSP sunflower oil every morning and before bed every evening. (You can also add 1 TBLSP liquid Chlorophyll for extra support, if desired.) Drink this morning and evening for about 10 days, and you will soon notice oddly shaped and colored objects floating in the toilet when you defecate. These are accumulations of toxic bile, cholesterol, and other toxins that are being eliminated by your liver and gall bladder. You may feel very tired for a few days, but within a week you will feel more energy than you have in a long time. You may also notice that non-specific aches & pains disappear. To further supplement the liver cleanse, take 1200 mg of Lecithin 2-3 times per day and take 250 mg of Turmeric 2-3 times per day. (Don't take Turmeric for more than 5 days in a row, as it can cause stomach upset in some people. Also do not take it immediately after drinking the liver flush recipe.) I wish you the best of luck!

  41. QUESTION:
    how do we cure cancer in children?

    • ANSWER:
      This is not specific to children, but will certainly not harm them.
      There is a lot of reading, but it is well worth it.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

  44. QUESTION:
    i have a pain in my chest, it comes and goes...?
    the only way i can describe it is that its behind my right rib/breast area? and its quite sharp and achey. it comes and goes every so often. i think i had this type of pain before and my docotr prescribed me muscle rub, but at the time i had a really bad shoulder ache. this times it's just the chest pain and i tried using the same muscle rub but it doesn't seem to do a lot... ?
    it sometimes comes when i breathe in deeply, or i sit in a certain way.
    it also sometimes goes through right to the back of my back, if that makes sense?

    • ANSWER:
      It can be the gallbladder. You might have gallbladder stones. If the pain is there after meals especially fatty one , that's it. My best advise to every body, don't have surgery for gallbladder stone removal. Try the recipe from ;;Liver Cleanse;;its safe, it will remove the fat and stones , in only one day. I had the same pain as you, sometime i could not move or breathe and i did this cleansing and i eliminate a lot of stones and fat , i repeat it every year just to keep it clean.The recipe is about Epsom salt and olive oil, you can do it!!!

  45. QUESTION:
    Gallbladder attack...........advice?
    I am female, 31 yrs old. Am on waiting list for over a year to have keyhole surgery to remove gallbladder due to number of stones, and past pain.
    Haven't had any big attack since Christmas.
    Last night i got an awful pain in my upper right chest area. IT wasn't like usual gallbladder pain that is under right ribcage. This was more on my sternum.
    That lasted till i fell asleep and was gone this morning. Today all day i feel very cold, chills etc. For the last 3 hours i have upperright back pain, just by shoulder blade, i am constantly belching, it like it going to relieve me but doesn't. I have also light pain in gallbladder area, although the back pain is worse. I just feel very very uncomfortable on the upper right side. Is this likely to be an attack coming on.....I am hungry and dinner is nearly ready but am scared to eat incase i get worse, but have to as i'm type 2 diabetic on tablets, and take them with dinner and was advised not to skip my meals.
    I didn't get any ''warning'' with the attack at Christmas, it was sudden and very very painful, and lasted nearly 9 hours.. i was going to ring for an ambulance it was that bad, but had no one to watch the children, as my husband was working...Please, any advise would help, any ways to ease the pain etc.

    • ANSWER:
      "Natural Treatments

      How to treat gall bladder and biliary problems and cysts in the bile ducts naturally

      Important things to do

      Do raw juicing using cabbage, carrot, ginger root, mint and apple etc. (see juice techniques and recipes in Raw Juice Can Save Your Life book by Dr Cabot)
      Include fresh green leafy herbs in your salads and raw juices – the best liver cleansing herbs are mint, parsley, garlic, chives, shallots, basil, coriander and small amounts of thyme and oregano
      Increase the amount of raw vegetables in your diet
      Taking digestive enzymes at the beginning of your meals may reduce symptoms
      Take a good liver tonic twice daily; ensure it contains Saint Mary’s Thistle, B group vitamins, vitamin C, and sulphur bearing amino acids such as glycine and taurine
      Supplement with the amino acids taurine and glutamine and the mineral selenium, which can help the bile quality and reduce inflammation in the liver and bile ducts
      Take liquid fish oil – one teaspoon twice daily just before food. Keep the oil in the fridge. Consume other healthy fats such as cold pressed flaxseed oil, macadamia nut oil and olive oil.
      Sip one tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar mixed in a small glass of water during your meals
      Drink plenty of pure water
      Drink dandelion tea and coffee
      Be careful not to overindulge on dairy products – the best ones are natural cheeses and plain yoghurt
      Hot spices are good for the liver and bile ducts and good choices are wasabi, horseradish sauce, mustard, garlic, curry, turmeric and chilli. If you have a sensitive stomach or gastritis only use small amounts of these spices or avoid them.

      Things to avoid

      Deep fried foods, margarine, cream and icecream
      Packaged snack foods and take away foods – such as chips, pretzels, cookies, donuts, hot dogs and pizza etc
      Excess sugar – use natural alternatives to sugar such as xylitol or stevia rather than aspartame based products
      Excess alcohol
      Cheap processed vegetable oil
      Sugary soft drinks and diet sodas
      Dehydration

      The Liver and Gall Bladder Flush

      The liver/gall bladder flush is a quick way of flushing toxins, fatty sludge and small gallstones out of the liver and gall bladder. It is becoming quite popular in Russia and the U.S.A.

      Dr Cabot warns you that it is not for the faint hearted, and can cause some unpleasant reactions including abdominal pain and diarrhea.

      Quite a few patients of her patients have told her of excellent results from this procedure, so you may find it of interest and also of help. This is particularly so if you have gallstones or sludge in the gall bladder, which may or may not be causing intermittent discomfort.

      Before attempting a gall bladder flush check with your own doctor that it is suitable for your case.

      Many people have “silent gallstones” that do not trouble them and these are often discovered accidentally when they are being investigated for some other problem. The natural history of these stones is that they will remain silent and cause no problems, and only around 18% of such stones will cause problems over a 15-year period. If you have stones that are not troubling you, it is suggested that you follow the dietary recommendations either of Dr Cabot's books - Healthy Liver and Bowel Book or The Liver Cleansing Diet book and take a liver tonic – chances are you can watch the stones slowly dissolve and shrink away. Ursodiol is also another way to dissolve gallstones.

      If however the gall stones or sludge are causing upper abdominal pain, nausea, bouts of vomiting, pain in the right shoulder, or if there is a chance of infection or cancer in the gall bladder, then you must be guided by your own surgeon. Laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery) has made the recovery time after surgery much shorter. In some very acute gallbladder attacks, surgery can be life saving. However, remember this type of surgery can have complications and although these are not common, Dr Cabot has seen patients who have had more problems after cholecystectomy than they had before. These problems included leaking bile, permanently damaged bile ducts, liver haemorrhage and infection. These are the reasons why some people opt to use the liver/gall bladder flush to try and avoid surgery. Once again if you decide to do this, please talk to your doctor first."

  46. QUESTION:
    I have to eat a beet (or two or three) .. what's a good 'seasoning' for the beet? or foods to mix it with?
    So, I think I blew out my gallbladder. I've been having occasional 'gallbladder attacks' since the birth of my son, 2 years ago!

    I don't have any gallstones (just an inflamed bile duct according to the ultrasound) so any fried foods throw me into orbit. I get nauseous (and sometimes dizzy!) for 2 days straight after a greasy meal. Unfortunately, up until now, I'd eat the fried food (burgers, fries, tacos, nachos, pizza, etc.) and then deal with the pain. NOW, my anti-nausea pills don't seem to be working and these 'gallbladder attacks' seem to be lasting longer and longer after the greasy meals.
    I love my burgers and fries (and pepperoni pizza! :) But I'm over it. I've given up fried foods (for a while :) and now I'm ready to 'cleanse' my gallbladder. I'm not going to do any 'cleanses', but I'm going to eat foods that are 'healthy' for my gallbladder and liver.
    Beets seem to be the number ONE 'wondrous food' when it comes to the gallbladder.
    My husband boiled me some beets last night and I'm gonna eat them in about an hour -- anyone have any good recommendations for 'seasonings' to add to these beets?

    [also, if anyone can recommend any other foods that are 'good for the gallbladder', let me know! So far I got grapes and organic grape juice ..]

    Thanks ..

    • ANSWER:
      a little vinagrette dressing is nice over them. They are delicious roasted (Quarter them if small, or cut into large chunks), place in a bag with a little flour, salt and pepper, shake to lightly coat, Place in a roasting dish, drizzle lightly with a little olive oil, then roast in a 350 degree F oven along with other yummy veges like whole carrots and potatoes. When they're roasted, the juices don't go everywhere.

      Beets are also nice grated into a salad, although they do stain everything pink.

  49. QUESTION:
    have you done a liver cleanse before? what was it like?

    • ANSWER:
      99.95% of people diagnosed with cancer have intrahepatic stones.
      A liver detox is often the first vital step for the body to begin to heal itself.

      Liver cleansing recipe is the same as gall bladder cleansing recipe. Cleansing of both organs is achieved by the same procedure. All people who have stones inside gallbladder, always have stones inside their liver - proved by their cleansing experience. All people who have stones inside their liver, do not necessarily have stones inside gallbladder - proved by ultrasound examination and liver flush.

      The liver / gall bladder cleanse is necessary even if one has had their gall bladder removed. Also, anyone who has already had their gallbladder removed should be taking a product called Cholacol which replaces the bile salts that your gallbladder would normally be producing. This is needed for the rest of your life so that your body can properly digest fats.

  50. QUESTION:
    what can you do when you found out have a cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      Research alternative cures. Over 100 are available, but your doctor isn't allowed to tell you about them.

      I have always believed that the mainstream medical industry is not interested in finding a cure for cancer because it makes too much profit with its present barbarous methods.
      Eventually, I came across a detailed report which agreed with my findings, and I have included it in my web page at

      http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/cancer.html

      By reading this report, you will also convince yourself that it is best to ignore the mainstream cancer industry, and seek alternative cures. Also you should bear in mind that the medical industry will do anything to protect its profitable position, including disparaging alternative healers or even creating bogus court cases.

      I believe that cancer is a whole body thing, which in 80 percent of cases manifests itself by producing symptoms in the weaker parts of the body, and therefore appearing localised. It is this treatment of symptoms instead of cause which creates the profitable, yet non-successful approach of mainstream medicine.

      Some cures are listed on the web page too.

      It is therefore obvious that a holistic approach is required, based on cleansing, diet, exercise and debugging.

      CLEANSING
      The best way of cleansing is to fast.

      http://www.phifoundation.org/menses.html
      http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?ID=1996

      but if a patient is too weak for that, or does not fancy the idea, then alternative cleanses are available.

      DIET,
      The best diet is vegetarian, avoiding all processed, frozen or micro-waved foods and drinks, and based on fresh fruit, fresh vegetables - preferably organic, nuts and seeds. Drinks should be clean water or freshly squeezed orange juice.

      Many researchers promote the benefits of vitamin B17 as a healer. this can be found in the following foods:
      Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat, garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.

Liver Clensing Foods

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    there is a new hipe about colon cleansing, do they work or is colonal irrigation the only way?
    i see lots of advertising about stuff that stays in your intestines and colon. i hear that a clensing should be done once a year. the same is recommended about colonal irrigation. which is the better treatment? does anyone know or are these marketing gimicks to scare us into having these treatments done.

    • ANSWER:
      Keeping your digestive system functioning properly is one of the most important health measures to take. It has been dubbed the second brain because it has just as many nerve endings as the brain and functioning properly it produces many important body peptides and chemicles like opiates to assist in pain management. So yes start with a good cleansing. Your body is quite resilient so don't be too afraid of which method is safe there are several elixers available at your local health food store. Heavy Metal de-tox is another name for them. You may also want to clean your liver and Gall as well. One home remedy that really works is to consume nothing other than as much of a gal. of apple juice for one day then at around 5 pm. take a mixture of 3 tbls. lemon juice and 3 tbls. of olive oil. Not too tasty but this is very effective. Wait 15 min. and repeat 3 times. The toughest part for me was to lye on your right side for the entire night. I wont detail it but you will be amazed at what you pass the next day. Once you have Cleaned house it is important not to eat foods that will block it again like bleached flour and white rice.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to do a clensing detox?
    I know it's good for your body and really good for dieting, but how do I do it and how long does it last?

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

      If you aren’t ready to start a full-on detox diet, introduce fresh, organic produce, fiber and plenty of water into your diet as a gentle and healthy way to rid your body of chemicals.

      Fiber: Fiber cleanses your body and your digestive tract, so opt for foods like whole wheat bread, brown rice, broccoli, bran cereal, corn and other raw vegetables and fruits.
      Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a great detox agent for cleansing the liver, as it produces glutathione.
      Water: Water is one of the easiest and most effective ways to flush out your system. It’s also a good substitute for soda, alcoholic beverages and sugary juices when you’re thirsty.
      Garlic: Garlic is a great ingredient for promoting good health, especially detox, as it is rich in antioxidants.
      Organic foods: Incorporate organic foods, especially fruits and vegetables into your diet, since they are free of harmful pesticides and chemicals.
      Locally grown food: For a more socially conscious move, buy locally grown food to support your community in a green way.
      Ethical food: Ease your conscience by making sure your food was produced in an ethical way, from conditions of slaughterhouses to Fair Trade coffee growers and harvesters.
      Blueberries: Blueberries are extremely high in antioxidants and keep your brain sharp.
      Say no to junk food: Processed junk food full of unnatural sweeteners and chemicals pumps poison into your body, can cause you to become overweight, and negatively affects your heart health. Even diet junk-food is processed and unhealthy.
      Raw food: Whether you live a completely raw food and product lifestyle, or you’d like to try a raw food detox diet, raw food can be an effective way to cleanse your body of animal products and processed ingredients.

  3. QUESTION:
    What is Ferretone? Im 13 so I wouldnt know. Please help?
    What is Ferretone? Im 13 so I wouldnt know. Please help. Ive heard you rub a swipe of it on there toys before use. Is it like clensing stuff? Cleansing,,or clensing...oh well..

    • ANSWER:
      Ferretone
      An oil-based food supplement primarily made from soybean oil, cod liver oil and wheat germ oil. Contains essential fatty acids such as oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids, plus vitamins A, B6, D3 and E.

      During the summer, when our resident test panel go to meet the general public at shows and fairs (to prove that ferrets can be cuddly and affectionate), people often comment on the softness of their fur. We attribute this to a daily lick of Ferretone.

      We've found that medication seems to go down more easily if unwell ferrets are given a quick lick of this supplement before dosing. Our theory is that the supplement coats the taste buds and masks the nasty taste of that horrible stuff the vet gave us.

      And it's also very useful for distracting your ferrets while you're clipping their claws

  4. QUESTION:
    can chicken liver help significantly in the prevention of vitamin A deficiency and risk for infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamin A has two sources, animal and plant. There is some toxicity in using too much A that comes from animals, not to mention that the liver is a clensing organ and therefore would be the dirtiest part of the animal's body. I would strongly recommend vitamin A from plants, which is using a supplement called betacarotene. It can be found at any health food store and is really inexpensive. Any green vegetable (spinach, especially) is an excellant source of A. So are carrots.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there any sort of drink that is made for internal clensing?
    I’m not sure exactly what category they come under, but things like Metamucil. I have been eating junk food excessively for the past year and a half. Just to give you an indication, pretty much fast food like mcdonalds once a day has been a must. I know its bad but I love the stuff. My internal organs must be so unhealthy and clogged and lately I’ve been feeling worse. Some symptoms include; increased flatulence, and just generally bloated. I would like to know the name of those drinks and the effects of them.

    I just want to take some sort of health drink to boost my internal body’s organs back up to at least 90% healthy, because I believe I’m sitting on about 30% now.

    What do I take, and how long do I take it for?
    I forgot i'm 19 and have a fast metablolism which makes it impossible for me to gain alot of weight. For my height, im proportionate in weight. This question is primarily asking how to clean up my inside. Its not abotu weight

    • ANSWER:
      First of all; do you want to live?
      Or do you want to be dead?
      If it is the former and you want to clean out your system then I suggest a life style change. Secondly keep in mind your body is an AlfaRamero, so you need to treat it that way.
      Would you put sugar and fat in your gas tank and expect it to run at full power?
      Look at the palm of you hand; the palm is the size of protein double or triple that for vegetables, and one size for carbs (depending on how active you are). The largest group of food is Vegetables and fruit. Go for smoothies and raw juices (veg. or fruit). How well you body is working will be in your energy and skin. Plenty of water. You need to balance your ph. so get some testers at the pharmacy test your second urine of the day and the spit in your mouth first thing before drinking water or brushing your teeth. That way you will know if you are acidic or alkaline. You want to be the latter. For a good cleanse you need to clean your kidneys, liver and intestines. So if you really want to run on optimal health do a juice cleanse (a blender will be useful here). You can buy a book on the subject. Read it and do some due diligence. And take control of your life. You eat what you eat because you crave it you crave it because you are probably allergic to it. Change to Lebanese fast food. Nice and healthy. good luck. Remember treat your self like you want to life forever and love yourself.

  6. QUESTION:
    Just got diagnosed with a ton of food allergies. Would a liver cleanse help? If not, what could?
    I was just made aware that I am allergic to: all wheat products, cow's milk, all gluten products, all corn products, whole eggs (whites and yellow), and all rye products

    It is like these food allergies came out of no where, because I don't think that I was allergic to all of these things before---maybe some, but not all of them. These are all of the foods that I have eaten everyday.

    So it is possible it could be my liver? Would a cleanse get rid of food allergies?

    What causes food allergies? How do you manage with them?

    Help!

    I have already purchased some lovely alternatives that I am enjoying (as long as I don't go out to eat it's not that awful) but I would love to hear from others to see if there's a cause and if there's a way to get rid of them.

    Thank you :)
    Blood test from my primary MD. Quest Diagnostics provided the lab results.

    Rye 8.0 (range s/b below 5.7)
    Egg Yolk 4.3 (range s/b below 2)
    Egg White 5.2 (range s/b below 2)
    Corn/Maize 7.9 (range should be below 2)
    Wheat 10.4 (range s/b less than 2)
    Casein/Cow Milk 14.3 (range s/b less than 2)
    Gluten 9.6 (range s/b less than 7.5)

    I'd like to get a wider panel tested because although I am definitely feeling some relief, I still think that there are other things that I am allergic to all of a sudden because I still have headaches and other symptoms.
    Ugh, I am going to see a nutritionist on Tuesday lol. Why a dietitian and not a nutritionist? What makes you say that?

    • ANSWER:
      Who daignosed these allergies?
      If it was someone with a device you hold I'd take it with a pinch of salt. If it was from clinical testing you may actually have these Allergies.
      Can you give more information please?

      Edit:
      Thanks for giving more information.
      A clense won't stop the allergies but there are schools of thought suggesting Adipose tissue and the Liver are a store for chemicals which are toxic to your body. If this is correct and you have allergies a liver clensing program may be appropriate.
      I'm not sold on fasting. if your Liver is working properly it should detox anyway. if it isn't a fast won't be so helpful unless the liver has nutrients to support it.
      I suggest reading "The Liver and Bowel Book" By Sandra Cabbot. It explains how your Liver works, how it interacts with the rest of your bowel and your body and has some sensible eating programs which will help support your Liver while it is cleansing.
      It makes medical sense and common sense. Quite an unusual combination.

  7. QUESTION:
    How can cod liver oil captules cause these bad spots?
    I need any advice and help anyone out there can give me. Im vegatarian and as a result i started taking pure cod liver oil captules about 10 days ago, so im getting my vitamins daily. I take 1 captule a day. The past 6-7 days or so, ive been breaking out in spot after spot, today is the worst as ive woke up with my whole right cheek covered in spots, looks like i have acne! i have never suffered bad skin in my life, so this is so out off hte blue for me! My friends/family have suggested maybe im allergic to aningredient the captules contain, but i dont think its that serious. I feel maybe this is one of the side effectsof taking cod liver oil tablets,& this is a process of clensing my skin of toxins! its just been almost 2 weeks and my skin is getting worse. Do you think i should see the doctor avout my skin? My face really hurts! Has anyone ever taken these oil's and suffered bad spots for a little while? thank you for any help you can provide 7 for reading this. Lindsey x

    • ANSWER:
      As you say your face really hurts it would be a good idea to see your doctor.
      A good vegetarian diet will give you all you need for health.
      Cod liver oil can react with other medications, but a rash is not listed as a side effect of taking it.
      Anybody can be allergic to anything. I would stop taking them, make an appointment to see your doctor and Google the many excellent sites giving advice on a good vegetarian diet.
      There is even one from the Beeb ...

  8. QUESTION:
    Travelling solo abroad, information needed. Thailand/Laos to be exact!?
    Hey guys,

    I'm a 23 years old man leaving on a self-discovery trip by myself on backpack to South East Asia for 3 to 6 months! It will be first solo trip abroad. I need few information before hitting the road...

    First, I was planning to get a dog when I get there. I think it'd be a great companion during my trip. What do you guys think? What would be the price (in Baht)? What would be the complications?

    Second, anyone know any temples (wat) a foreigner that do not speak the language can become a monk for a week to a month? What would be needed? Anyone can share an experience?

    Thirdly, anyone got interesting activities I can practice when I get there? I do not want to do the same old touristy stuff. Something original, for example, a friend bought a used motorbike and traveled the whole country with it. When he left, he gave it to a random family. I'd do that, unfortunatly, I do not own a driver license.

    Lastly, any tricks I'd need to know? It's my first trip abroad, so I have no knowledge travelling whatsoever. For example: "Toilet paper is your best travelling friend, save them!" Any information gladly accepted!

    Thank you for reading!
    Moreover, I'd also love to do some volunteer work over there. Restore historical monuments, taking care of zoos, teaching english, I do no mind. Any interesting propositions? Or any reliable organizations?

    • ANSWER:
      Regarding the dog, no. Just no. If you buy or adopt a dog, it will end up a street dog when you leave, and there are enough of them already. There are still stories about "dog fishing" going on in the country.

      But the monk thing? No you CAN'T become a monk, almost all Thai men do become a monk, if only for 3 months or a few weeks, but if you arent a thai buddhist its going to be a toughy for you. Unless you speak Thai, Pali or Sanskrit. But it is in fact possible to go to a monestary for a week and do this spiritual clensing thing where you eat simple food, dont speak and meditate for a week. A friend did it, it was a really amazing experience. He said by the end of the week he could feel his liver working. Cool no? I don't know the name of the place he did it but I'm sure if you enquire in Thailand you could find out.

      Yes, in Thailand, always carry toilet roll or tissues, because the loos here are a disgrace. Less trouble for guys then girls, but a pack of tissues will be your best friend. Unless you have a SERIOUS chilli tolerance dont ask for spicey food. Ask for non spicey, it will be hot enough and you can always put more chillis on it yourself, they're on the table. Expect to get ill. You WILL get ill. Stomach cramps are the norm whilst you are adjusting to the bacteria and ingrediants in food you arent used to, so always carry immodium to keep you covered for long bus journeys. Never assume that people speak english but never assume that they don't and can't understand you. Anyone that went to a private school in Thailand has been learning English since they were 10, but obviously not everyone goes to private schools or is involved in the tourist industry...

      Erm....don't insult the king or the royal family ever under any circumstances, you could go to jail. Don't point your feet at people and especially monks, it's rude. Don't touch people's heads. If a coin rolls away from you then don't step on it to stop it because it means you are stepping on the kings head. NOT good. Don't move things around with your feet.

      There are lots of little things like this (lucky you're a guy, as a girl I have to deal with so many more on a daily basis) but as you're a foreigner most Thai people will forgive you due to ignorance or if you apologise for little things. Just don't play fast and loose with the lese majeste laws...

      Eat lots of somtam. Best food in the world. :)

Where Can I Go To Get My Colon Cleansed

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    After getting your colon cleansed will it help lower hypertension?
    After getting your colon cleansed will it help lower hypertension? I know after getting your colon cleansed you will lose weight but does it lower hypertension?

    • ANSWER:
      Hilarious, absolutely not. Colon cleansing is just yuppie crap, it doesn't do anything but remove fecal material that would have come out later that day anyway. But there are health risks associated with it, like intestinal wall tearing. Don't do it, there are no benefits and there are some risks, one more risk--wasting money.

  2. QUESTION:
    How does a colon cleanse help the body and how effective is it?
    I am thinking of getting a colon cleanse as I have been experiencing constipation for a while now. What I need to know is how does a colon cleanse help the body and how effective is it? Also, is it worth the money and how long would I have to use it?

    • ANSWER:
      A colon cleanse can help your body rid itself of toxins that have built up in the intestines. If you're not eating enough fiber, which is cleansing, then your system will get backed up. Things can get clogged/stuck to the lining of your colon. You can then experience constipation, and even if you overcome the constipation, you may still have a residue of stuff stuck on the walls of the colon, causing a toxic buildup. So the colon cleanse is comprised of a combination of ingredients that will help to rid the colon of the toxic buildup. It is very effective. Some people can even lose a few pounds after going on a colon cleanse.

      How long you would have to use it really depends upon which program or products you use. If I were you, I'd find a naturopathic doctor who will recommend the proper cleanse for you, as well as advise you what kind of a diet you should be consuming during and after the cleanse.

      Good luck!

    What is the best way to colon cleanse?
    Which herbal colon cleansing supplements are the best? Is it better to get a colonic? How much do they usually cost and are there any risks? Any extra helpful information would be appreciated thank you!

      They are not needed. Your colon cleanses itself. They are a money making scam.

      Your intestine is 3 metres long. the cleanse only helps the last 8 inches.

      It also removes all the good bacteria you need.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes- prepping for a colonoscopy is cleaning out your colon for a reason.

      "Colon cleanse" quackery is cleaning out your colon for no good reason at all. Unless you LIKE diarrhea and hemorrhoids and a sore bottom.

  9. QUESTION:

    I saw an infomercial about a colon cleansing product, just wondering if anyone has tried it, and what their results were. (Not the kind a doctor does, but like the at home program with pills and stuff)

    What advantage does a colon cleanse have over a fleets?
    I 'm going to have a colonoscopy soon. I will have to use fleets to clear my colon before the procedure. I was going to do a colon cleanse to improve the view for the procedure. However, the GNC rep I talked to said he didn't know why people didn't do a fleets every once in a while instead of a colon cleanse.

    • ANSWER:
      Colon cleansing is typically herbal, whereas fleets is tried and true method :-)

  11. QUESTION:
    What is the best colon cleansing product you've tried?
    Just looking to do a consensus as I'm planning to do a colon cleanse soon. Colon Blow (lol) sounds pretty good, but does it live up to the hype?

    • ANSWER:
      One of the most reliable and safest colon cleanse is Bromalite. It is effective to it's core and helps your body get rid of any parasitic presence inside the colon and at the same time relieve the users from stress.

      It is a perfect colon cleanse which has a natural composition which has probiotic and antioxidants to create a feeling of wellness. It helps reduce fats and help to discard the harmful deposits from our body without any side effects. http://p.gs/csupy

  12. QUESTION:
    Does a colon cleanse and fasting actually have health benefits?
    I am thinking of taking a trip to a Thai spa and having a colon cleanse. Not the silly fifty pound health juices, I want to do the whole kit kaboodle. If it works.
    It says that the colon is the 'root of all disease'. I seriously doubt this, but then again I'm not a health professional.

    So: does the colon cleanse actually work with health benefits? And does the whole fasting - raw - food jam work?

    Thanks!
    I'm centring on the colon bit - I know some people say it's rubbish, but is there any sorta scientific proof?

    • ANSWER:
      If you use colon cleansing kits whose products are made up of chemicals and herbally based products they may not be safe and may cause more harm then good.

      When it comes to natural colon cleansing products, the government doesn’t regulate it so essentially their safety, purity, and potency cannot be guaranteed. And, each state has its own rules about whether or not practitioners must be professionally licensed. So really it’s a risk you take when you start a new pill. There may be side effects or there may be nothing depending on what you are taking.

      In my opinion the best colon cleansing and safest colon cleansing 'kit' would be by naturally improving your lifestyle starting with nutrition.

      A colon cleansing diet would consist of fruits, vegetables, berries, clean meats, oils, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, and whole grains. I’m a vegetarian myself so I obviously don’t include meat in my diet and neither would any other vegetarian. But for the most part you want to design a diet around those foods.

      I do believe that disease starts from the colon or the digestive system. Proper nutrition is important and our digestive system does a lot of work for us - so when it is having problems it only goes to say the rest of our body will be having problems.

  13. QUESTION:
    What's the deal with getting a colon cleanse? Would it be worth the money or is just a fad?
    I heard that the average person has anywhere from 5 to 15 pounds of fecal matter build up inside their colon! (YUCK) and that a colon cleansing can get rid of that. Is that true or just junk science?

    Also, if a colon cleansing is worth the money, do you have to go to a doctor to get one done or can you buy something at a drug store or health food store and do it yourself?

    Thanks for any help and / or advice.

    • ANSWER:
      Colon cleansing is well worth it. I was skeptical when I first tried it, but trust me, you will feel so much better. Doctors tend to frown on this kind of thing because it has more to do with natural medicine. There are natural clinics you can go to to have it done (colonic), or you can find pills at a natural health store. Here is some info.

    • ANSWER:
      It's junk science. A "colon cleanse" is nothing but an enema. It might wash out everything, but within a few days (assume you keep eating), you'll replace all of it.

      You'd be better off to learn and follow a healthy diet, set up a regular program of exercise, and get a physical once a year, just like your doctor has been telling you. That's boring and dull, but it works better in the long run.

  15. QUESTION:
    What is the best cure for compacted stools/colon cleanse?
    I have been having a lot of problems with recurring constipation and have wanted to try a colon cleanse to get rid of the compacted stools. I just have a feeling that there are stools that are stuck in my bowels. My diet isn't terrible but isn't good either. Can you give an natural recommendations or commercially available colon cleanses that would loosen the compacted stools? I have seen a bunch of websites that try to see these. Which is good for this?

    • ANSWER:
      Any "colon cleanse" that you buy is most likely just a laxative, which will indeed cleanse your colon temporarily but will not solve your problem. Your constipation is most likely due to your diet. You need to increase the amount of fiber you eat. The best sources of fiber are vegetables, and to a lesser extent whole grains and fruit (mostly in the peels). Without fiber, stools harden and compact.

  16. QUESTION:
    Where can I find Colon Cleanse reviews which are short and to the point ?
    I just want a place with a quick comparison of colon cleanse products and colon cleanse reviews of key features to help take a decision. Any place that I visit has so much information about so many products that my head is spinning.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, there are so many colon cleanse reviews out there that it is pretty easy to get lost, as you clearly are. However, a li'l effort searching on the right search engines like yahoo can help you get to the right content quickly.

      Anyways the site mentioned in the source below contains short reviews of the most reputed colon cleanse products out there in the market. Hope this is what you were looking for!

  17. QUESTION:
    How will I know to start a colon cleansing weight loss routine?
    I'm 35 and kind of overweight. My friend suggested I should think about colon cleansing.

    What are the symptoms of a bad colon? Does colon cleansing help weight loss?

    • ANSWER:
      If your colon is not as healthy as it should be you will feel a lack of energy, some bloat and possible constipation. Mind you, these are not the only symptoms, just a few possible one. The other benefit to a colon cleanse is that you will detox your system and get rid of harmful parasites that may be lurking about.

      Here is a site that I recommend you at least take a look at:

  18. 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.

  19. QUESTION:
    How do you tell someone that they may need to get their colon cleansed?
    This is a serious question: I now its not supposed to smell like roses, but how do you tell someone that their bowels smell like something crawled up them and died (for hours); and that they should look into getting their colon cleansed? It can actually be a serious health problem.

  22. QUESTION:
    How many bowel movements should a person have who is on a diet colon cleanse?
    I have conflicting information as to how many bowl movements is good or normal. What is the normal amount for a person with a healthy cleansed colon or is on a regular colon cleanse regiment?

    • ANSWER:
      It's basically impossible to predict. Many of these 'cleansing' procedures are not particularly healthy - in addition to having no actual health benefits. For some people it is normal to have a bowel movement only two times a week, for others, daily. Either is completely normal, and there's nothing pathological about either.

    How many bowel movements should a person have who is on a diet colon cleanse?
    I have conflicting information as to how many bowl movements is good or normal. What is the normal amount for a person with a healthy cleansed colon or is on a regular colon cleanse regiment?

    • ANSWER:

For some people it is normal to have a bowel movement only two times a week, for others, daily. Either is completely normal, and there's nothing pathological about either.

      Many 'cleansing' regimens severely disrupt the internal flora and absorption processes of the GI tract. This can result in a slowing of bowel movements and constipation all the way to constant runny diarrhea. That's of course for those regimens that actually do anything to the GI system at all.

      Basically, it's impossible to gauge health or normalcy from bowel movements. There's a huge range, and despite what the charming evangelist selling laxatives on the TV at night says, you can't claim any particular number as what everyone should be having. It's not very productive to focus a lot of energy on this, as the medical data is quite clear about the above. Visit this site, if you want to know how to get colon cleanse benefits for your body

  25. QUESTION:
    Could anyone tell me about the connection between colon cleansing and good joint health?

    • ANSWER:
      Just take fiber. Colon cleanses are BS. I read studies on them and they found that they did nothing beneficial for the body.

  26. QUESTION:
    How many lbs do you loose when you colon cleanse?
    I am doing a colon cleanse before i start a fairly large diet [at least 50 lbs by august!] and i was wondering what the colon does and how many pounds on average that you might loose. thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes - you can lose weight with a colon cleanse!

      The colon is part of your digestive system - it's main function is to absorb the vitamins and nutrients from the food you eat, and to pass the waste on to... the end of the line. lol!

      The problem is that our digestive system isn't set up to process a lot of the foods we eat - like meat products, processed foods and some dairy. Little bits can get left behind in the colon and, over time, these can really add up, leading to weight gain, gas, bloating and even more serious conditions like diverticulitis.

      This is where colon cleanse products come in - they help to remove all this built up gunk and replace the natural bacteria that grow in your colon. When all the stuff comes out, it makes sense that you lose weight.

      Personally, I lost about 43 pounds using colon cleanse products along with another supplement. To read my story, click on the link below:

  27. QUESTION:
    Are there side effects to the colon cleanse products I'm reading about?
    I've been reading about these over the counter colon cleanse powders and pills that are supposed to make you feel healthier, but I'm worried about side effects, like having to use the bathroom constantly. Has anyone out there tried products like Bromalite or Cleanse RX?

    • ANSWER:
      Colonic irrigation (colon cleansing) went out with high button shoes and I can't imagine why anyone thinks it is a good thing to do.

      There are dangers such as mechanical injury, introduction of pathogens, and loss of electrolytes.

      To feel and be healthy, eat well balanced meals containing adequate fiber, exercise, get adequate sleep, avoid ingesting and inhaling toxic substances.

  28. QUESTION:
    What is the BEST organic colon cleanse product available?
    I don't care how expensive it is. There are so many colon cleansing products it's impossible to tell which one is best. Can anyone tell me from experience/word of mouth which is the very best organic colon cleansing product in the world.

    I want to cleanse/detox my colon using an organic cleansing product -- can anyone advise on the very best. Please no spammy adverts.

    • ANSWER:
      In a healthy individual, on a diet with adequate fibre, transit time is quite rapid and it only takes around 24 hours for the bowel to be emptied and refilled with new material. This confirms that the colon cleanse concept is a mythological one.

  29. QUESTION:
    Does the Acai berry supplement and colon cleanse thing really work?
    I have heard the Acai berry and Colon cleanse "diet" works really well. I am iffy on taking these supplements - do they work? what kind of effects will it have? If I take this am I going to be in the bathroom all day and night?

    • 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.

  30. 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.

  35. QUESTION:
    How do you go about giving yourself a colon cleanse?
    This is gross but ever since I've heard that the average person has about 5 lbs. of impacted fecal matter lining their colon I've always wanted to do a colon cleanse. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      The notion that your colon needs cleansing is a triumph of marketing. There have been clinical studies, but none produced results backing the claims of colon cleansing products.

      What the studies did show:
      --Fecal material does not collect, impacted on the colon walls.

      --Fecal material in the colon is not toxic and cannot poison. (Or constipated people would be found dead on the street. "Look, Jerry, there's another one. Poor bastard didn't eat enough fiber.")

      --Removing fecal material earlier than it might otherwise have exited the body does not improve health in any way.

      Colon cleansing is quackery, designed to sell you a product you don’t need.

      There is no legitimate reason to cleanse your colon unless you're getting a colonoscopy. (And the various colon cleansing products marketed on TV and in magazines are not what gastroenterologists want patients to use.)

      Flushing everything out of the colon is not the secret to weight loss or better health. It results in weight loss not because it's healthy but because poop and future poop weighs something. You’ll feel better because you *believe* you’ve done something healthy, not because you *have* done something healthy.

      More beneficial than a colon cleansing is consistently eating whole grains, plenty of fruit and vegetables, and drinking enough to be properly hydrated all the time. Spend your health care dollars and time on something that's actually beneficial.

  36. QUESTION:
    What is your favorite colon cleanse system?
    I'm looking for a non-clinical (meaning not going into a clinic to have a tube stuck where the sun doesn't shine) colon cleanse system. I've seen one that is apparently popular in Canada and is now in the US, Jillian Michaels has one, there is a system I have seen on an infomercial.... there are just so many.

    And I want to know which is the best?

    • ANSWER:
      Dual action cleanse is a popular one that you can find in stores, but I prefer Ultimate Colon Cleanse. There is a 30 day online free trial.

  37. QUESTION:
    Can I do a colon cleanse and still take my birth control pills?
    I just started a colon cleanse, but the whole point of it is that it absorbs everything in your intestines and then pushes it out.

    But I don't want my birth control absorbed out! Can I still take it and it be effective? Or if I woke up at 3 am in the morning (I take my last dose of colon cleanse stuff at 10 pm, the next one at 7 am) and took the BC would it still be effective?

    thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Probably not. Alot of people are warned about birth control pills interacting with antibiotics, or if they are having diarrhea or frequent loose stools. The reason for this is due to the fact that in order to be effective bacteria in your stomach must effectively break down parts of the hormones in the BC that have been recycled through your liver and must be re asborbed once again to reach the target hormone level (required to suppress ovulation). If the contents of the intestines are cleared prematurely, or there is a lack of bacteria (ie after taking an antibiotic) there is a risk of incomplete absorption of your BC.

      Your suggestion theoretically would work, but I would be extra cautious. I would suggest either of two things:
      a) Do not take your BC on the day you do your colon cleanse and take 2 pills the following day, then resume as normal.

      b) Take your BC as normal, use backup contraception for 7 days after the colon cleanse (I would recommend using extra method of contraception for the remainder of your cycle).

      It is ultimately up to you and how comfortable you are. There is always some slight risk regardless with birth control pills, but the number is quite low, mostly due to human error (such as missing pills).

      Lastly, the colon is self cleansing and does not require products to cleanse the bowel or intestinal contents. Sometimes these products can lead to electrolyte disturbances such as hyponatremia, or hypokalemia. Obviously, this decision is up to you but you should be cautious when using them, and perhaps check with your doctor regarding its safety for you. Hope this helps.

  38. QUESTION:
    How often should you do colon cleansing and is it really safe?
    When doing a colon cleansing should you go to a facility that specializes in colon cleaning or is it safe to use natural herbs from a herb shop.

    • ANSWER:
      Unless you have a colon problem you probably shouldn't do anything to "cleanse" the colon. If you do have colon problems then you need to consult a physician.

  39. QUESTION:
    What works better a colon cleanse (pills) or colon hydrotherapy?
    I just wanted to know if a colon cleanse dose as a good job as a colon hydrotherapy? Does the hydrotherapy romove more stuff?

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on what you're trying to do it for. If you're just trying to clean out the bad stuff and help regularity, then colon cleanses are best, although the powders are usually easier so you aren't swallowing a dozen pills at a time. Colon cleanses are typically mostly fiber and herbs that encourage regularity, so they are very beneficial and safe.
      If you are doing it for a colonoscopy or something where your colon needs to be REALLY clean, then hydrotherapy is the only option.

      If you're wondering which is safer, that would be the colon cleanser. There are some things that should be in your colon (specifically probiotics) that an enema would wash out which could be detrimental to long-term regularity. In other words, an enema is only a short-term help and will make you more constipated if you use them too often. Fiber products would work with your body's chemistry to keep things moving normally. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  40. QUESTION:
    What's the difference between a colon cleanse & a parasite cleanse?
    I thought getting a colon cleanse would kill the parasites. I've heard of getting both a colon cleanse & a parasite cleanse. Anyone know about this? I'm only 18 & dealing with Leaky Gut Syndrome.

    • ANSWER:
      im going to go out on a limb gere but im guessing parasite cleanse has some sort of chemical in it to kills a parasite and colon cleanse doesnt. Try Shakeology that is a good cleanse.

  41. QUESTION:
    What is the best colon cleanse, and are they safe?
    Hello, I have been wanting to try a colon cleanse. I need someone who knows or who has used one to tell me a few things:
    is it ok to use one at my age of 15,
    will it be painful,
    will I be spending the majority of my days on the toilet,
    are they safe,
    and which one would you personally recommend?
    I don't want to get in over my head here.

    • ANSWER:
      Before you do a colon cleanse, make sure it is o.k. with your parents. It is not painful and is safe. If you go to your local health store and ask for an all natural colon cleanse, they can help you. Wait after you have eaten dinner for at least two hours before you take a pill. It is not like a laxative. If you don't have a health store close, you can go to this site a friend gave me.

  42. QUESTION:
    How do you do a colon cleanse?
    I want to do a colon cleanse without taking any pills. Do I only drink liquids?

    Are there certain foods like fruits I can eat?

    How long do you stay on it and what effects does it have on you?

    • ANSWER:

  45. QUESTION:
    What's the deal with getting a colon cleanse? Would it be worth the money or is just a fad?
    I heard that the average person has anywhere from 5 to 15 pounds of fecal matter build up inside their colon! (YUCK) and that a colon cleansing can get rid of that. Is that true or just junk science?

    Also, if a colon cleansing is worth the money, do you have to go to a doctor to get one done or can you buy something at a drug store or health food store and do it yourself?

    Thanks for any help and / or advice.

    • ANSWER:
      As I understand it (not that I've had it done or anything) it is more than just a fad. It is meant to be VERY good at getting rid of toxins which will make your body much more vibrant and healthy, better digestion, better skin, better flow (blood and waste), you should feel less sluggish and more 'on the go'.

      However it is expensive and it only really has long term benefits if you get colonic cleansing on a regular basis - like once a year.

      I am a little shy of it but if I had more money and knew I could keep up the annual payments then I would try it as I believe it to be very beneficial.

      Where to get it done? I'm not sure - I think most beauty salons would do it. Perhaps some private doctors/health clinics too? I don't know how to advise where you find out the best one in your area. Google's always good but as for reviews? Who knows?

      Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      The acai berry really isn't meant to be a colon cleanser. It's just a food high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.

      A colon cleanser will get rid of about 2-3 lbs of waste/parasite buildup immediately. The rest of the weight loss comes from the health benefits of getting rid of that waste. Your body absorbs more nutrients and vitamins and your energy is increased. There's a nice article on it over at http://www.thehealthfitnessblog.com/general-health-and-fitness/dual-action-colon-cleanse

  47. QUESTION:
    Need advise on an effective colon cleanse thats safe and cheap?
    Im constantly bloated latley, stressed out, not going everyday. I think I need a good colon cleanse, and something to remove the waste weight.

    Any sugguestions on products or foods.. I am on a tight budget.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      If all you think you need is to take a good poop, then eat a lot of natural natural fiber in the form of raw vegetables.

      Now, if you think need a colon cleanse, then you need to go to the doctor and get a colonic. "Safe" and "Cheap" are two terms that do not go together when discussing medical procedures. Also, no magic food or drink is going to roto-rooter your bowels.

  48. QUESTION:
    How much does a colon cleanse cost?
    When I DID have insurance, I asked for one and my doctor said no. She wouldn't even examine my colon maybe because I don't fall into the stereotype of the older male patient who get VIP treatment.

    Anyway, lately I see little drops of blood from my behind and things just don't feel right back there, plus I have a family history of colon cancer. I currently no longer have health insurance. Can I just walk into a hospital and request a colon cleanse and if so how much out of pocket would it cost?

    • ANSWER:
      You don't need a colon cleanse you need a COLONOSCOPY! That can detect cancer. A colon cleanse will simply empty your bowels of feces. That's not going to do much for you. If you really want to clean the pipes get a Fleets Enema from the store and take Metamucil. That will clean you out. Call your local hospital they may have programs for uninsured at risk people with a family history to get a colonoscopy. Or have a sliding scale fee. Out of pocket would be expensive because they sedate you for the procedure wich always costs waaaaay too much!!

  49. QUESTION:
    What happens if while on a colon cleanse you become pregnant?
    My husband and I started a colon cleanse 3 weeks ago. Everything is working as planned except Im concerned I might be pregnant.Being pregnant is not a problem except the medicine we are taking states that you shouldnt use it if you are pregnant or nursing. I have done some research on why or what will happen or could happen and havent been able to find an answer. So does anyone know what happens if I become pregnant while on a colon cleanse. Just in case Im taking Colonix by Dr Natura.

    • ANSWER:
      Any time you are taking medication that states it can be harmful if pregnant or nursing, is because it can cause a deformaty in your child or delay the process of growth. The best thing to do is to go to a ob/gyn or a free clinic based in a hospital in your area, and for your own saftey they can find out if your pregnant with blood work. He should also give you a recommendation on what medications are available for your pregnancy if infact there is one. But your first step would be to stop until you go to the ob/gyn. There you can get all of the help you need. Hope i helped.

  50. QUESTION:
    How many bowel movements should a person have who is on a diet colon cleanse?
    I have conflicting information as to how many bowl movements is good or normal. What is the normal amount for a person with a healthy cleansed colon or is on a regular colon cleanse regiment?
    Please site your source for the answer to this question. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      It's basically impossible to predict. Many of these 'cleansing' procedures are not particularly healthy - in addition to having no actual health benefits. For some people it is normal to have a bowel movement only two times a week, for others, daily. Either is completely normal, and there's nothing pathological about either.

      Many 'cleansing' regimens severely disrupt the internal flora and absorption processes of the GI tract. This can result in a slowing of bowel movements and constipation all the way to constant runny diarrhea. That's of course for those regimens that actually do anything to the GI system at all.

      Basically, it's impossible to gauge health or normalcy from bowel movements. There's a huge range, and despite what the charming evangelist selling laxatives on the TV at night says, you can't claim any particular number as what everyone should be having. It's not very productive to focus a lot of energy on this, as the medical data is quite clear about the above.
