Our bodies are not a car engine. We have active maintenance systems. Does a 'cleansing' remove anything that isn't removed over the normal course of events? And if so, is there any evidence that any of that 'build up' is bad? And why not flush our eye sockets, or change our bone marrow, or replace our blood and lymphatic fluid three or four times a year? Ewww, old blood!!

I'd suggest a triple dose of chicken wings doused with pure franks hot sauce. Everything will be cleared and completely cauterized within 24 hours. Everything. Any foreign substances remaining in your digestive tract will be very, very sorry.

Appropriately in a thread regarding last years superbowl where the seahawks saw "winning" and confused it with "whining". Which the colts will be doing a lot of by tomorrow morning.

Unless they don't.

After reading this thread I'm inclined toward the really old Catholic remedy. You know before fish was substituted on Friday it used to be a fasting day. I think it was used both for religious purposes and also as a curative/preventative or method to modestly clean out the system on a regular basis. It seems to me : that we've forgotten a lot of the old tales that may have worked far better than pills--just maybe not as quickly.

Which reminds me . My father's grandmother lived next door to him when he was young. He told me that frequently when he or his siblings got ill grandma would come over with mineral or castor oil as her treatment of choice for just about any sickness found. Needless to say he never recommended/volunteered this information to anyone he liked or wanted to help.

I just heard about a study about women who worked in a job where they were busy and on their feet all day. One group of the women were told that because of the nature of their job, they were getting plenty of good healthy exercise. The control group was told nothing. The experimental group after a period of time had lower blood pressure and had lost weight.

Re: Toxic Cleansing for the body??

Can we start a rumor that spending time on early retirement boards provides plenty of good healthy exercise?

Re: Toxic Cleansing for the body??

I had to delay starting my Fat Flush (cleanse) due to travel, so I started it on Monday, 2/5 instead. So far, so good. I've lost 4 lbs. and my jeans fit again. I need to lose about 15 pounds, but my reason for the cleanse is to wean myself off sugar. I'm a total addict and have constant cravings. It seems to be working - after the first 2 days I haven't thought about sweets....just getting use to being hungry all the time. I'm supposed to follow the regimen for 2 weeks, but it is so strict that I'm just taking it a day at a time.
