There are people exposed to toxic substances like heavy metals, where medical procedures to get those out are needed, but this idea that every organ needs "detox" is not supported by any science that I know of. ...Read more

That said, of the medicines out there, Alli seems to be one of the safest, and is effective while using. ...Read more

I ate raw sushi one time only, now im afraid of the parasites that could emerge in my body or brain. Is there a way to detox. What should I do??
Likely OCD symptom: It is very unlikely and in fact probably impossible for there to be any kind of long-term consequence for I having eaten sushi in the remote and distant past. This does not mean that you are not terribly distressed about the perceived contamination from the sushi. This is a hallmark symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder: fears of contamination have been shown to be classic. Evidence dictates that the appropriate first line of psychotherapy is exposure and response prevention, a derivative of cognitive behavioral therapy. ...Read more
