Youve taken the pills and potions, followed the special eating plan and sweltered in the body wraps.
Now youre simply going to lie back and let your detox diet work its magic.
Or are you? Not if the latest report by a group of scientists is to be believed.

i’m surprised people even try any new fangled approach to health, considering how disease free we are as a society while taking the current medical advice.
Your body detoxify’s itself every day. Its called taking piss and taking a crap.
First you have to be able to do both. Drugs cause constipation, or low water disposal.
Don’t forget about exhaling those “greenhouse gases”.
Being stuffed up also comes from these radical fat free diets for losing weight. The body needs a certain amount of fat to lubricate the digestive track and keep things moving.
I know people who pay to have some untrained non medical person “flush” their colons (massive enema) with a machine using a concoction of “natural” cleaners. I can’t believe that people haven’t died from perforated colons or electolyte imbalance as a result of this quack therapy.
She has finally found something that I like, though, and that's the green smoothies. They actually taste good, suppress your appetite, and diminish cravings for junk food.
So I give them a thumbs-up. Yes, they really taste good.
This is a great website.
It's the easiest way to take your veggies.
There are ‘clinics’ like this at which people pay over $10,000 to ‘detox’ and have a series of ‘high colonic’ enemas. If he actually said it, PT Barnum was right that ‘there's a sucker born every minute’.
Body wraps? Sounds about as effective as that old exercise machine that involved putting a belt around the hips and standing there while it jiggled you around.
