I'm wanting to take something to boost my weight loss. I am looking into advocare. Is this a safe product to take?

Why: Would you want to put unknown chemicals into your body when you don't know what they are or what harm they could cause? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. There are no supplements on the market that "boost" weight loss, they only steal your money. Try eating less and exercising more. It works, and it doesn't put stuff in your body or cost money. ...Read more

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?

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 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

I was on the Advocare 24 day cleanse and apparently conceived mid cleanse, unknowingly. Have I risked my baby's development?!

Not likely but...: Not likely, but I have had two patients who did the Advocare cleanse and experienced an increase in liver enzymes on blood testing. An increase in those enzymes is a strong indication that their livers were stressed while doing the cleanse. I do not recommend it.

Is it safe to try the 24 day Advocare cleanse if you have high blood pressure?

It should be fine.: My common sense advice is not to take ur BP and cholesterol meds at the same time as the cleansing agent. Perhaps spacing them apart by 6-8 hours to prevent malabsorption of ur meds. Best wishes! ...Read more

I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and I'm on a vitamin cleanse Advocare 24 day challenge. Can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?

I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and I'm on a vitamin cleanse Advocare 24 day challenge. Can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?

Not likely: The herbal parts of this regimen seem to include milk thistle, echinacea, and astragalus -- none of which should cause a problem with wellbutrin (bupropion). If you're also taking the fiber part of this plan, I suggest taking that separately from your medication so that absorption is as good as possible. ...Read more

If you have cirrhosis, can using the Advocare cleanse be helpful?

If you have cirrhosis, can using the Advocare cleanse be helpful?

STOP...Don't do it!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question. There is virtually no value to liver flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste" or for weight loss. There are few real health benefits but significant unjustified risk. Don't use cleanser please unless prescribed. ...Read more

I am taking a weight loss flush pill that is called acai berry cleanse and I am supposed to take it 4 times a day. Is it healthy to take these?

Acai Berry: As yet another supplement, that is not regulated by the fda, there is no good data supporting the effectiveness of acai berry. Again, may I recommend good old fashion healthy diet and increasing your activity level to a least a moderate activity level of 5-6 times per week of 30-45 minutes ore more of exercise to help you lose that weight and more importantly keep it off! ...Read more
