Eat better: Detox programs haven't really been shown to work nearly as well as eliminating unhealthy foods from your diet and adding more fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and wild fish like salmon and sardines.

What's the best way to detox your body?

What's the best way to detox your body?

No such thing: Detox is such an appealing concept... It seems logical we can take a tea or herb or medical preparation and sweat or bathroom out all the carcinogens, toxins, bad food and bad habits we are exposed to. But sadly there is no magic bullet here... Colon cleansing, detoxifying, are all not helpful and can often be dangerous. Once stuff is in the colon, its already on its way out. ...Read more

NO, don't do it!: This has been addressed many times on healthtap, and the repeated answer is: don't cleanse! it doen't matter whether the snake oil (sorry "detox cleanse") you choose is "organic" or not--there is no enduring value to cleansing. Rather, there is considerable risk to your health. Pull the prior healthtap answers on this subject, and please don't do it. ...Read more

What is the best way to detox my body and what is the best diet pill? Is it ali?

Alli: I don't know much about detoxing. I have never been convinced that it is useful. As far as medicines to lose weight, i think most of them have not been shown to be safe long term. I don't generally recommend them because almost everyone gains the weight back as soon as they stop them. That said, of the medicines out there, Alli seems to be one of the safest, and is effective while using. ...Read more

Detox?: Detox is only the first step, and it seems you've already been through this at least twice. You seem to have some very persistent addictions, and may or may not be staying involved with outpatient recovery programs after discharge. This is the hardest part -- but also the most ongoing thing that will save your life. The big question is: are you willing to stop using? If so, see your doctor. ...Read more

Those detox products just make you poor-er. ...Read more

Help please? What is the best way to detox your pineal gland?

Help please? What is the best way to detox your pineal gland?

Don't believe in it: There are people who claim that we intoxicate the pineal gland with all the additives in our food and water and that various "holistic" techniques will "detoxify" it. They point to the calcification of the gland as proof of this. Imho, this is totally unproven, and in my opinion it is nonsense. Calcified pineal glands were seen in egyptian mummies where there werent any toxins in food or water. ...Read more

What is the best way to detox from 2 bottles of wine and 3mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) a day? Professional care is not an option.

Slowly: I recommend going to 2 mg a day x a week then 1 mg a day x a week then 1/2 mg a day x a week then stop. Wine: go to one bottle a day x 4 days then 1/2 a bottle a day x 4 days then stop. Biggest risk is DTs or seizures. The klonopine will help prevent that, so it gets stopped later ...Read more

I used aspartame for 15 years, & not feeling well now (dazzyness, fatigue etc), is it possible to reverse the damage? & what is the best way to detox?

Stevia: It's best to stay away from chemical sweeteners. Give stevia a try. It's a root made into a powder and is very sweet so you only need a little. Once you stop using chemical toxins your body will work to eliminate them. Hydration and exercise will help. Intermittent fasting is in the research these days with lots of benefits but do that with the guidance of your doc. ...Read more

What is the best way to do a detox/cleanse?

What is the best way to do a detox/cleanse?

Eat right & exercise: Why not prevent spilled milk rather than clean up mess? In other words, no need for detox/cleanse if you eat right, drink plenty of fluids & exercise regularly. But to directly answer your question, no, there is no best way to detox/cleanse, unless you have a specific toxicity eg lead, iron, other poison, etc, in which case, your doc will prescribe appropriate care. But for layperson's detox, no. ...Read more
