I'm doing the advocare 10 day cleanse for 4 days now & the whole time I've felt nauseas & headaches that won't go away. Should I stop the cleanse?

No "cleansing" need: Normal human's have self-clearing (like self-cleaning) intestinal tracts. After a person eats, the food is processed and moved along from the stomach all the way to her anus, without any help or interference from him. If a person is eating a healthy, balanced diet, no colon cleansing is needed. Such cleansing is unnatural. But, it is ok to occasionally use laxative help to get rid of constipation. ...Read more

I had a gastric bypass 2 years ago. Is it safe to perform a 10 day cleanse?

I had a gastric bypass 2 years ago.  Is it safe to perform a 10 day cleanse?

Clean is good: If you mean a 10 day meal replacement with a balanced low sugar shake like medifast or glucose-controlled boost (plus all vitamins) it should be ok. However, the best diet to work with a bypass is a solid meal (protein and veggies) with no sipping, fewer slider foods, no sweets and no bad snacks. Might be good to check with your surgeon and program. ...Read more

I'm on day 2 of a ten day cleanse and my legs and hips are cramping. Do you know why?

Stop the cleanse: You are depleted and doing more harm than good. Try a healthy diet and consider yourself smart enough to stop doing fads that never do much other than upset your electrolytes and deplete you. If you are trying to lose weight or get regular bowel habits you should consider life habits that actually make you healthier. Avoid feeling vulnerable and putting your body through stress. ...Read more

I get anxiety attacks and heart palputations and my chest hurts after I drink caffiene.. :( is it safe for me to take the Advocare 10 day cleanse?

I get anxiety attacks and heart palputations and my chest hurts after I drink caffiene.. :( is it safe for me to take the Advocare 10 day cleanse?

Cleanse: Why do you think you won't get anxiety attacks when you start 'cleansing'? These things basically are diarrhea inducing agents, so when you start this you may trigger off anxiety or palpitations or both. It likely won't be dangerous but you are likely to react with anxiety. Another point is, there is no solid evidence that these 'cleanses' do anything really positive for you health wise. ...Read more

If i take do a 7 or 10 day total body cleanse from gnc, will that take THC out of my system for good? I lapsed and want it out of my system, forever.

Not necessarily: Thc is stored in fat, and can remain detectable for varying amounts of time depending on frequency of use. The only way to get it out of your system for good, forever, is to stop using marijuana/thc forever. Marijuana anonymous can help. http://www.marijuana-anonymous.org/. ...Read more

Type 1 Dia /Kidney transplant(12yrs) I'm trying a 10 day Green Smoothie Cleanse.  It says to take a protein powder "RAW Protein" can I take this?

Kidney Transplant: hey congrats on 12 years post transplant. Not knowing your kidney status it is hard to say wether you should be taking high protein supplements. Wether it is "raw" or not matters little. I would consult your Nephrologist as they know your creative clearance which is the best measure of your ability to handle proteins, ...Read more
