    I am interested in a body cleanse for toxins etc... either in supplemental, dietary, or both. I'm not finding much on the web that is offering unbiased research and results from users. I'm finding a lot of retail sites but they tend to be slanted towards great results (to try and sell their products).

    The reason I'm looking is that I haven't been eating as healthy as I could be for the last couple of months. I want to jump back on the bandwagon of healthy eating but want to expunge all the crap in my system. (I could make a joke about that but will refrain).

    Your input and guidance is valued. Thanks in advance.

    Just start eating healthy again. You're body will take care of the "toxins" on its own. That's why you have a liver and kidneys.

    From "Detox Diets: Purging the Myths":

    ...Detox proponents say the body is under constant assault from toxins such as smog, pesticides, artificial sweeteners, sugar, and alcohol. Without a periodic cleansing, these poisons accumulate in the body and cause headaches, fatigue, and a variety of chronic diseases.

    But the science behind the detox theory is deeply flawed, says Peter Pressman, MD, an internal medicine specialist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The body already has multiple systems in place -- including the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract -- that do a perfectly good job of eliminating toxins from the body within hours of consumption...

    I can find out. "Cleanses" were all the rage at my office a few months back. Best I can tell, they didnt do anything for anyone.

    I was under the care of an highly recommended naturopath a few years ago. She said the many naturopaths do NOT recommend intensive cleanses anymore, at least not the thorough, whole-body kind. She said that bodies today are severely more polluted than 20 years ago, and that a rapid release of all those toxins is potentially harmful.

    That said, have never red that a one or two day fast (with adequate hydration and maybe some spirulina) was harmful. The last time I tried this, I felt wonderful.

    It is also the case that eating lots of raw plant foods over weeks and months will have a cleansing affect.

    Here is a cleanse that I give to my clients I train who wants to lose weight. Its a 10 day cleanse. I take them off of caffeine, sugar, juice, sodas, bread, pasta, diary, and meat. They can have all the fresh fruit and vegetables they want. They can have two cups of oatmeal day. They can have two cups of quineo or brown rice a day. They can have two eggs a day. They can not have any animal fat what so ever. They can not have any fried foods either. I also tell them they have to be creative with there meals. I mean you can only eat so many things of broccoli in a day. ha ha ha Try it out if you want. Oh yeah, I forgot about herbal tea. U can have as much herbal tea as you want too

    Exactly right. Cleanse products are designed to strip one thing from your body: money. Toxins get flushed all by themselves.

    Are your kidneys healthy? You'd know, because you'd be horrifically sick if they weren't. They're working to remove the crap from your body. Liver OK? You'll be fine.

    Just eat better. Drink water, sleep, work out, enjoy life. Enjoy taking a piss, because that's your body's natural cleanse.

    The body does hold onto memory cells, such as sad cells. So if you are feeling depressed an enema might help.

    food for thought.

    If I eat poorly over a period of time and feel icky I usually just fast for a day. Give my stomach/body a rest and time to repair/regulate. Works well for me. Plus once you start eating again you become more aware of just how some foods can make you feel really icky. Helps me avoid crap because I can acutely feel how the food is making me feel bad.

    I stop reading or listening when I see or hear the word "toxins".

    These cleansing threads come up every couple months. Fast if you want, but "cleansing" is a bunch of horse shit.

    Here's one of the classics:
