Hi:), I've been drinking laxative teas everyday for the past month 2xs a day, what are the dangers in that?

Hi:), I've been drinking laxative teas everyday for the past month 2xs a day, what are the dangers in that?

"Cathartic colon": Laxative teas typically contain an "irritant" agent that can make your colon "floppy" & result in dependency--the more irritant laxative you use the more dependent you become on it. There is often a risk as well of melanosis coli--pigmenting of the colon lining. Examine your reasons for drinking this brew--stop it if just to lose weight; see a doctor if you have a real problem with constipation. Read more

For every oz of decaf you still need1oz of water to hydrate your body. Stop the addiction. You will feel so much better after 1 week of serious withdrawal. Read more

Will Yogi Detox tea harm me, or possibly cleanse me a little bit? Are there any health benefits to Herbal detox tea or is it dangerous or a waste?

Will Yogi Detox tea harm me, or possibly cleanse me a little bit? Are there any health benefits to Herbal detox tea or is it dangerous or a waste?

Waste of time: There is no clinical evidence that "cleansing" has any medical benefit. Although, generally not harmful, herbal medicines can contain high levels of dangerous materials or adversely contain almost nothing at all. The thought of cleansing comes from the notion that stool is dirty. However, your colon doesn't absorb anything but water and "toxins" cannot be absorbed. Short answer: A waste of time. Read more

Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?

Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?

In context.: Drinking 60 oz of water (doesn't have to be distilled) is adequate for hydration. That amount of water, in general, doesn't have any health effects as long as you're healthy otherwise (no kidney disease, &c). However the "detox" plan & its duration isn't generally advisable. Detox is nutritionally deficient & you can get electrolyte problems. Check w/ your doctor before starting any "fad" diets. Read more
