Good Morning. I just wanted to toss this out here, then I think i will retreat, but here ya are: I have tried various herbs and such and honestly
never noticed a change in anything. Like, these don't do anything to me. EXCEPT ONE: Milkthistle. You can tell the difference the next day after
you take a couple. It claims to cleanse the liver. And, in fact, it does. (I read a biography a while back on Ben Franklin, and he took them
everyday of his life.)
They did tests in VA hospitals with people who were developing liver disease, and in some cases it was reversed. Studies do say, if I may post a
warning, that if you already have liver disease, it can be aggravating to this. So you would want to talk to your physician.
All the little "detox teas" you buy? The active ingredient is milkthistle, and you would have to drink several boxes of it to get the milkthistle
contained in one capsule. This is the thorny little plant with the purple flowers that grows on the side of the highway. Google it, if
You can go to a health food store and buy this for 40.00, or you can go to K-mart and buy it for 8.00. Same thing, I have found.
Liver disease often develops when we get "fatty" substances built up in the liver from alcohol, especially, or other medications and food
substances. The milkthistle literally pushes it out, and it is eliminated from the body through natural processes.
This is something that you can take and not have to "wonder" is it helping.
You can either "feel" the difference, like me, or some people can actually "see" the difference.
I think anybody who smokes, drinks, or takes medications should take it every day.
Just a thought.
Can you or Anybody explain how you can tell its working when you begin taking the Milkthistle?
How can you tell the
difference by the next day, what symptoms do you feel?
I suspect something is up with my liver because Ive taken 2 urine test in the past couple of months & they came back with Protein in the urine. Ive
always been thin (however, Ive noticed increased weight in the mid-section)
So in the past when Ive ask a doctor if I could possibly have diebeties because it runs in my family. THey always told me "No" because I wasnt
overweight or after doing some other test.
Ive already changed my diet completely by starting theWAI's DIET
, which consist of all Fruits, raw Nuts
blood sugar levels b/c of Natural Fats) Alternating between organic raw Egg & raw Fish
(Sashumi) & a Salad
that consist of Cucumber,Tomato, Avocado, & Chives & LOTS of OLIVE Oil.
I know its helping because I have ALOT of energy & am able to get more done around the house, where usually Im only able to get a few things done. Ive
also always had consitpation problems (since I was young) & Now I go to the bathroom Everyday....which is a Big deal for me..lol.
Im surprised I actually like Sashumi because usually in the past I HATED Sushi...but it really is Satisfying....& those who want their protein this
Diet give you those Adjustments depending on your weight. I only need 2oz.
So far this feels like the *Perfect* detox because I only stick to those main foods.,,,,,,,NO Vegtables, NO Cooked Foods, NO diary....NONE of that!!
(which makes this diet so much easier to FOCUS on)
The only issue I have is when I have to leave the House for a long period of time. I need to bring those main items with me or I start craving what
other people around me are eating.
Anywho, if anybodys interested thats basically it.
If anyone knows anything I could add to help with naturally detox, Im all Ears.
