have you ever detoxed

A few years ago i purchased a DETOX kit from the chemist to detoxify my liver/ kidney etc and it took about 10 days to complete - it was pretty disgusting to go through - but it really had results!!

I went to the chemist after a bit of a pimple breakout to grab another kit and found they are priced at around $80to $100 now!!

Does anyone here know any *SAFE* do it yourself detox programs? like you know drink 2 litres of olive oil and sleep on your head for 3 nights or something??

I have read that they should never go over 10 days and to make sure you have 1200 calories each day, and to take a multivitamin evryday.

I never heard of this before. Great results? What were the results? Did you feel better? Could you work during those 10 days? Why did you decide to try this?

Thanks, sweetie. I didn't think anyone noticed.

I thought I made a complete ass of myself in my last posts of Jan 2004. I got flamed and dug myself into a deeper hole in responding to the flamage. So, I just quietly left.

But, Undertoad recently told me that I didn't make an ass of myself , and one poster doesn't make the majority. So, I decided to try dipping my toe in the water again. I'm still a little nervous about this.

I know book availability is different in Oz-Land, but see if you can find this or this.

If you haven't made an ass out of yourself around here, you aren't trying hard enough.

I (yea shaddup about motives) joined a girlfriend doing a detox thing once, no wheat, booze, drugs, caffeine, dairy or pratically anything else that wasn't a raw vegetable or rice for two weeks, I have to admit I felt pretty good but god, never again.

I am qualified to say this amounts to DETOX.

The results I saw last time were:
Sleeping better
More alert for about 2 months
clear skin
my nails grew faster (also I stopped biting them hmm)
It must have cleaned out lots of things from my liver etc ( my partner in crime even had an instance of "little green balls")
i stopped craving things like sugar and coffee (actually i havent had coffee since)

Thanks for those links Wolf i will check in my local dymocks.

Faintly i can remember my friend doing a do it yourself one that included something like yours Jag, but i recall something like raw egg and vege oil in the mornings.. (I THINK!!) but I cant see how drinking oil could possibly be good for your insides at all!?!?

The Google results page is not very enlightening.

With Clusty.com, the Topic Clusters provide instant information. Click on the "oil" topic to expand it. From there, it's easy to see that you don't want to drink just any oil, but there are Essential Oils used for this purpose.

Also there is: "...a popular liver and gall bladder flush based on an olive oil and grapefruit juice purge..."

Doesn't seem like a good idea to consume raw eggs these days with the samonella.

Anything involving the word "purge" cannot actually be good for you.

salmonella has been around for a fair while....few million years I think. Raw eggs are fine as long as they're fresh. That said, there are few things short of threats of violence that could convince me to drink oil in the morning.

Wolf's right, look at stalin.

How often to you visit the farm?

Otherwise -- Fresh -- Are you kidding? I am shocked in these times anyone would even breathe second hand vapors from raw eggs.

My brother is in the food industry and he says that companies have developed techniques for dealing with this threat, such as homogenizing egg whites for Ceasar Salad preperations.

Anyone that fools around with raw eggs is asking for trouble. Might was well play russian roulette with a loaded revolver. Not for me, thank you.
