Just started to do dr. Clark's liver cleanse, took two doses of epsom salt and I have experienced diarrhea. Should i continue with the cleanse or stop?
STOP...Don't do it!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question. There is virtually no value to liver flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste" or for weight loss. There are few real health benefits but significant unjustified risk. Don't use cleanser please unless prescribed. ...Read more
