Fiji natural artesian water...Good or bad?

Fiji natural artesian water...Good or bad?

Homemade diet supplement which consists of a zippfizz, 1/2 tsp ground chia seeds, 1/2 tsp ground flax seeds. Been drinking 1x day. Be ok to do 3x day?

(http://bit.Ly/mm1ce9)-i wouldn't take 7500 mcg(in 3 doses zipfizz). Instead try a good b complex with methylcobalamin ; a green drink like orac energy greens. ...Read more

You hear so much about natural remedies for cleansing and detox; like probiotics, lemon water, honey, diatomaceous earth, essential oils, etc. Do they really work?

You hear so much about natural remedies for cleansing and detox; like probiotics, lemon water, honey, diatomaceous earth, essential oils, etc. Do they really work?

No, not that way: Humans, designed or evolved over millions of years, are self-cleaning. That means we should eat what we are designed to eat, and our bodies will clear out unneeded materials without help. No supplements are needed, unless one wants extra fiber to move the bowels better. Proper diet, enough exercise, and a healthy mind should normalize bowels. Diseases may need treatment, but seldom supplements. ...Read more
