    Demystifying Detox Programs

    Demystifying Detox Programs
    Demystifying Detox Programs: Main Image
    There is no official definition, but the idea is to cleanse the body of damaging substances, including air and water pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, and other industrial and agricultural chemicals

    Detoxification programs are based on the idea that the body functions poorly when harmful substances build up in the body. Proponents of detoxification attribute a wide range of symptoms, from fatigue and headaches to allergies, sinus problems, bloating, weight gain, and dull skin and hair, to toxin exposure and build up.

    There is no official definition of what constitutes a detoxification program, but the general idea is to cleanse the body of damaging substances, which can include air and water pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, and other industrial and agricultural chemicals. Most programs recommend people also avoid alcohol caffeine, sugar, artificial sweeteners, and food additives.

    What the advocates say

    Many supporters of detoxification acknowledge the lack of scientific evidence behind the approach, but point out that people often report increased energy, clearheadedness, and a general feeling of well-being afterwards. When approached correctly, advocates claim a good detoxification program can jumpstart weight loss, identify food sensitivities, increase energy, and empower people to adopt healthier eating and lifestyle habits. Juicing programs where a person fasts but continues to drink nutrient-rich raw juices are thought to provide energy and help cleanse the colon and liver.

    What the critics say

    There is little or no scientific evidence to support claims that the approach improves health, and the symptoms for which detox programs are prescribed is so vague that it's often impossible to know the cause or whether detoxification really is a cure. Further, some practices related to detoxification, such as colonics, may affect a person's electrolyte balance, which has caused some doctors to warn against it. Another approach for detoxification, taking laxative herbs, has been reported to disturb healthy digestive tract bacteria needed for digestion and immunity, and cause loss of important minerals, such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

    Detox dos and don'ts

    If used with care, detoxification programs may help you feel better and get health habits back on track. Many of the safest practices simply involve eating foods that are well-known to support a healthy digestive system and colon, or to stimulate bile production (a sign your liver is working well) in everyone. Use the following tips to decide if and when detoxification is right for you.

    • Consult a professional. Talk to your doctor before you add any dietary supplements to your self-care plan. This is especially important if you have chronic conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
    • Avoid aggressive approaches. Do your research and talk with experienced, reputable practitioners before considering more aggressive detoxification practices, such as colonics and the use of strong laxative products, as these practices are associated with potential side effects.
    • Weed out offenders. Many detox diets advise that you cut out caffeine, alcohol, white sugar and flour, artificial sweeteners and all processed foods. We all would do well to follow this advice.
    • Conquer caffeine. A complete ban on caffeine can lead to withdrawal symptoms, including nasty headaches. Instead of going cold turkey, slowly decrease caffeine intake in the lead-up to your full detoxification program.
    • Be a label reader. If you try detoxification products, read the label carefully and follow all instructions. Taking more than the recommended dose may cause unpleasant and potentially harmful side effects.
    • Note ingredients. Any detox product that contains laxative ingredients such as senna, slippery elm, or psyllium will move waste more quickly through your colon and out of the body. These products also may remove medications, and if a medication passes through too quickly, it may not work as intended.
    • Focus on food. To get the most of any detox product, clean up your diet, too. Fresh vegetables and fruit should cover two-thirds of your plate. Include cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, chard, kohlrabi, bok choy, collard greens, turnips, rutabaga, mustard greens, radishes, and watercress, which contain nutrients that bolster the liver's ability to detoxify chemicals.
    • Drink up. You'll need fluids to digest the extra fiber you may be eating. If your urine is pale yellow or straw-colored, you're getting enough water. Any darker than this and you need to drink more.

    Comments about GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

    I have a history of being healthy and in good shape, but since I've been busy getting my master's degree I've been slacking. I decided to do a cleanse to get a jump start to getting back in shape. I'm not overweight, just looking to lose 10-12 lbs. The program comes with a meal plan. I did not follow this plan, but I followed the "what to eat/what not to eat suggestions." I made a shake in the morning with the fiber packet: with 4 pieces of ice, 1 banana, water and a splash of oj. Try to take the morning pills at the beginning of the shake because they do taste gross. They leave a bad after taste in your mouth, and it felt like I ate a piece of onion and garlic (gross, but worth it in the end). I ate a few almonds and popped a piece of gum to get rid of the taste. During the day and for dinner I ate fruit, grilled chicken, fish, salad, and/or veggies. Then I took the night pills, which did not taste quite as bad. I did not eat after 9:30 pm, only drank water, and stayed away from carbs. I did get some stomach cramps, but it was bearable. Yes you have to use the bathroom (#2) more then normally, but you know when it's coming. I'm not sure how much weight I lost from the cleanse because I did not weigh myself before, but I'm thinking around 10 lbs (from 163 in the beginning of september - 145 after the cleanse). My sister saw me for the first time in 3 weeks and the first thing she said was that I look so skinny. I am going to continue eating good and following the program suggestions of how to eat. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to "clean out" their system.

        Comments about GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

        I found this product to be very effective. I've never had "regular" bowel movements and needed something to help cleanse my system. It wasn't harsh and I didn't have the urgency to go. I didn't follow the diet they prescribed but was more conscious of what I was eating.

        I would recommend and use again.

          This is my third time to use the product. I always feel more youthful and energetic, usually before the end of the 7 days. I'm lighter and my stomach bloat is greatly diminished. No negative side effects at all. I even sleep better when using this product. I will keep using periodically--wouldn't mind if it could always be part of my daily regimen.

          Comments about GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

          I just got done with the GNC Complete Body Cleansing Program. Well, almost. I was doing fine. No pain, no having to rush to the bathroom. Just a nice gentle cleanse. Till day 6. I wound up in the hospital with excrutiating stomach pains. Now I have to eat toast, crackers, broth, water and tea for a few days. It was explained to me that our bodies are programmed to cleanse themselves and all these cleansers are gimmicks. After spending the day in the emergency room and two doses of morphine for the pain, I think I'll just let my body do it. I had used the program to jump start my new better eating rigimine.

            I'm 5 days into the program and using it for the first time. Turned my urine bright yellow and gave me slight discomfort. However, I still feel bloated and more tired than usual. I'm not sure if it truly worked but physically it didnt relieve the symptoms I was looking for.

              I just finished reading all the comments, and so many I read were negative so I just had to write one. This is my third time using, and I did not have any problem. When you are cleaning your body of toxins, you have to expect that you will have a little discomfort. It was not not enough for me not to use it. I have recommended to people as well. So everything is not for everyone, but It works for me.

                  This product is such a waste of money. I can take a corectal and get the same results, and with this I had to take 5 pills am, drink a liquid that tasted like paste and take 5 pills pm.Then nothing. I did not feel any cleansing or even a good go. It is so far over priced it should not be on the market. I used a colon cleanser last year for about $15 and took 1 pill am and 1 pill pm and went about 3 times every day for seven days. I would not recommend this to anyone.

                    I was recommended to buy this by a GNC sales associate who swore that he uses it all the time. After buying it I read the reviews. Talk about putting the cart in front of the horse. Anyway - the pills & fiber packet were easy enough to take - despite the disgusting taste. I am on day 4 and the cramps I feel are the equivalent of menstral cramps. Constant gas & extreme exhaustion. Total waste of money & I will be stopping this routine today.
