Define "work".: While there are many claims that nioxin is a hair regrowth product, they do not come from the company that sells it. The nioxin website states "nioxin is not a hair loss product, but a scalp and hair care regimen designed to improve the scalp health environment and improve the appearance of fine and thin-looking hair." in other words, it might make thin hair look thicker. And that's it. ...Read more

Generally just time: While a mild withdrawal syndrome from marijuana has been reported, it is nothing like what you see with opioids and alcohol/benzos, and generally some mild irritability, sleep disturbances and anxiety, which can be treated symptomatically if needed. An anti-anxiety drug for a few days to a week is usually adequate. Replacing it with a program-counseling, exercise, better coping skills takes longer. ...Read more

It's said that shampoo shouldn't be applied directly on roots. But why? What are its effects? Then how should I apply shampoo?
Lather up: Your hair roots are too deep to get to with simple shampoo. The best way to shampoo is to apply a small amount in your hand and apply to wet hair.

Relates to beliefs: There are many claims made that certain teas can 'detoxify' and cleanse various organs of the body. There is no well done research that confirms or denies this. So, it really comes down to one's belief about whether or not something will help them feel healthier. Trust in the source of info can go a lot further than the product itself. I'm not aware of any significant side effects of teas. ...Read more
There's no evidence that "detox" helps your health in any way. I've taken care of several people in the ICU who almost died from a detox session. If you want to be healthy, eat fresh foods, cooked yourself, drink plenty of water, avoid artificial colors/flavors/chemicals. Get exercise daily -
living a healthy life every day is better than any detox -. ...Read more
rids some poop: Yeah, this was a popular idea in ancient egypt, but was disproved decades ago. You will get rid of some stool. No one ever measured "toxins" supposedly removed before and after the rx to see if it worked.
