No. You should only do it yourself, if you are genereally in a “healthy” state. Body Detox is mainly a “tool” for health prevention, to enhance your general well-being, and to alleviate minor ailments such as sluggish bowel, lack of energy, headache and binge eating.

People with serious health conditions should only detox under supervision of a doctor or qualified physician. If that is your case, please talk to your professional.

FAQ #11 - Do I lose weight with fasting?

Yes, losing some weight during a prolonged fasting is normal. It happens even to fairly slim people. There are two reasons for that. You usually carry a few pounds of impacted waste and undigested food in your gut. In the first few days of a fast this matter is cleansed out and your colon stays “empty” because you have stopped eating. After that the body begins to use up stored fat cells. Please see also Benefits of Fasting for additional information.

FAQ #12 - How do I know whether I have a toxic body or not?

Let me say first, we all do have chemical residues and other poisoning substances in our bodies to a certain level. We do absorb, inhale and ingest external toxins all the time and the body produces them internally through metabolism as well. We should try to keep them at bay by detoxing regularly before they cause problems.

They can accumulate in the body over the years if the body can not eliminate them fast enough. Typical first signs of a toxic-burdened body are: feeling tired all the time, difficulty with clear thinking, uncomfortable perspiration (body odor), increase of body weight, discomfort in the gut and an overall feeling of not being quite well.

Substances like Heavy Metal Toxins can be determined with tests such as hair mineral analysis or provocative chelation tests.

FAQ #13 - How does the salt water flush differ from colonic treatments hydro-colon therapy) or enemas?

The difference is that the salt flush goes from top to bottom cleansing out your entire digestive tract. Colonic and enemas work the opposite way, reaching only the lower part of the bowel, but do a more thorough job.
