Could the 14 day acia berry cleanse and fat burner cleanse work?

Could the 14 day acia berry cleanse and fat burner cleanse work?

Better idea: Spend fourteen days really exerting yourself and rediscovering the joy of exercise and fitness. These cleanses are scams. Your body and your internal organs clean themselves naturally. Anyone telling you to drink something weird or do something off-the-wall is at best deceived and at worst playing a cruel prank on you -- some of the "health cleanses" on the internet can land you in the ICU. ...Read more

See Dr., then eat...: If truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a dr. Can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder (even check into zinc). If no medical cause is found, then one can add weight by eating more calories, while also doing weight-training to increase muscle. Proteins: egg white, chicken breast, salmon, ... Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu, etc.... ...Read more

Don't use it: Garcinia cambogia is in most weight loss supplements, and can cause liver failure.It was also used in Hydroxycut which was taken off the market as people died from using it.

Can folic acid cause weight gain ??  I've been taking 7 folic acid pulls daily and I noticed weight gain also I took fish oil and flaxeed supplements?

Folic acid: Folic acid can make you gain weight, if you have a deficiency, that it is correcting. If not, then it shouldn't. That sounds like an awful lot of folic acid. Check your dose. The CDC recommends 0.4mg (400 micrograms) per day, in women of child bearing years. More than 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned. If you have a deficiency, then consult your doctor, for the proper dose. ...Read more

Can getting a colon cleanse help you lose weight and is it healthy?

Can getting a colon cleanse help you lose weight and is it healthy?

Lose=yes healthy=no: Your colon may hold a few pounds of waste (stool) normally, although severely constipated people may hold more. Evacuating the colon will thus drop some pounds, but they come back as soon as you eat and make more waste, so very temporary. "colon cleansing" is frowned upon, unnecessary and likely often harmful to your body so don't do it! ...Read more

Can a colon cleanse help you to gain weight?

Colon Cleanse: You have posed a great question which I commonly get asked in my practice. Colon cleanses are not necessary to cleanse your colon . In fact, some over the counter colon cleanses may lead to a condition called Melanosis Coli which is seen during a Colonoscopy. Eating a nutritious high fiber diet will help with proper bowel function. Consult with your Proctologist about your specific condition. ...Read more

I've been taking meds for 10 yrs. For acid reflux. Will using a colon cleanse help with weight loss in the belly area?

Not sure associated?: Acid reflux medications do not cause weight loss nor weight gain. I assume you are alluding to possibly to pH balance. A colon cleanse (not with enema) may help you reset your balance towards a low basic ph. This will help place you in a fat burning mode. "belly fat" especially visceral fat is difficult to burn. ...Read more

Bad Medicine: Amazing. Here is your question as a physician see's it. I want to live healthy and I am undergoing a colon cleanse to get rid of toxins and such. But, I have to drink. I think that drinking alcohol is going to counter balance any thing you are attempting to do with a cleanse. If you cannot go for even one day without drinking perhaps we should start there and not with a colon cleanse. ...Read more

Likely just laxative: Most of these teas contain senna (cascara), which is a natural stimulant laxative.

There really isn't anything in there "cleansing" your colon. Just making you have a bowel movement. ...Read more
