Coffee substitute: Chicory root appears to have no known adverse interactions with any drugs. It may cause skin, respiratory, or intestinal allergies and it may induce uterine contractions...therefore it is not recommended in pregnancy. So if you are not pregnant or allergic to it, taking it with Prozac (fluoxetine) may be OK. ...Read more

Touch ups: Drink your coffee & tea with a straw. A glass of wine will not affect your whitening. Normal use will cause your teeth to become dense, thus giving the illusion of darkening. This takes years. Your dentist should have made you bleaching trays. You can use take-home bleach to touch-up your teeth if you feel it necessary. ...Read more

Deep colored foods: Any deeply colored food or drink can stain the teeth and darken them. It's critical that you refrain from deep colored foods and drinks while whitening and for at least 24 hours afterward as well. To keep the white longer and yet not give up your favorite things, use a whitening toothpaste as long as it doesn't make you sensitive. ...Read more

Since the colon is able to absorb liquids and other substances, there also can't be some potential risks. There also would be a slight risk of perforating the colon. I would recommend against pursuing any kind of therapy with enemas, unless it is prescribed by your primary care doctor or your gastroenterologist. ...Read more
