Remove Nicotine From Body
I dont think you can: All you have to do is google "body detoxification" and you will find hundreds, perhaps thousands, of methods and products to help the body detox itself. However, I have not seen any scientific studies that prove that such a thing happens, or that any of these things work. As far as i know, only time works, and it works well. A healthy diet, exercise and a positive attitude helps you feel better. ...Read more
Doubtful: The skin is a barrier against things entering our body...Or leaving it. The odds of a patch, chinese or otherwise, being able to selective suck out toxins are fairly slim.

GI tract: Dust that gets into your mouth and is swallowed is eliminated by normal GI tract motility and digestion. Dust that you inhale will be trapped by the lining of the breathing tubes and is carried towards the pharynx by constant ciliary action from where it is swallowed and eliminated by the GI tract.

Don't understand ?: Alcohol is metabolized into acetaldehyde and then into acetic acid, which is then used by the body, in the Krebs cycle, to produce energy. There is no "acid" that accumulates and needs to be removed. In patients who drink extremely large amounts of alcohol, other byproducts, such as acetone and dihydroxybutyric acid DO cause alcoholic ketoacidosis, which resolves with thiamine and fluids. ...Read more
How does the body filter toxins (ie heavy metals) from the environment and in the food that we eat?
Via the kidneys: Through the glomerular filtrate. Even the ones that are a bit toxic to the kidney, like cadmium, make it out. There's some storage of some of the problem ones in the bones. Please be discerning in your reading, and be advised that most "independent" labs that will test you for multiple heavy metal poisonings are cynical scams. ...Read more
You can't: This is a common subject of discussion by charlatans. There are even bogus labs that diagnose everyone with toxic heavy metals. If you are interested in this stuff, get with an evidence-based holistic physician. If you have an actual exposure, get with a physician with a focus in this area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What toxins?: Many people use the vague term "toxins" to scare u and drive u to buy their product. While there are toxic byproducts of metabloism, urea, carbon dioxide etc that your body needs to clear, it does this already (excellently) using you liver, lungs and kidneys. Most other "toxins" are imaginary. Eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids, exercise etc and dont waste your $ fighting fake toxins! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
