I've heard about so many detox programs. Do they work? What do you do when you need to detox without spending a lot of money on detox formulas?

First of all, unless you are in great physical shape, I would never tell anyone to detox without a doctor approving it.. As for how to detox without spending money on formulas? Well about 2 days before you detox, eat light meals like soups..Then when you start, just drink a lot of water, if you can't go to a steam room, make your own by running hot only in the shower and sit next to the tub, (not where you get get burned by the hot water) and just relax and breathe in the steam.. Doing this for three days is good and when you go back to normal eating, once again start out small and light.. Also, if you want a more detox, using enemas, can also help..

Sounds good carmel. I've heard coffe enemas are great, however I'm not sure I'm quite ready for that. Thanks for the tips.

I don't know about coffee enemas, but just warm water would be good enough if you ask me..

They say the coffee does something and really has the power behind it to clean things really well. ???

There was actually a great episode on Oprah not too long ago with that great guest she has from time to time, Dr. Oz and it was all about "detoxing" the body...they had a "test" with two groups of women for a week...one group pretty much could eat whatever they wanted, but were given healthy foods, the other group was on a strict detox program which meant drinking really disgusting looking (and probably tasting) detox concoctions...they monitored the women, taking blood and urine tests to see if the "toxins"in the system were good or bad or eliminated..know what the results were? NO DIFFERENCE was found! Dr. Oz was saying for the system to be really detoxed it takes longer than just a week---so save your money...heeeheee..unless you plan to do a detox thing for much longer than a week --in the meantime one of the best ways to flush out toxins daily, just drink water! Heck it's free

You can easy detox your body with citrus fruits and water. First day, unlimited oranges. Second day 3 oranges. Third day, 2 oranges. I drink a lot of water with lemon and honey. It works and cost less than regular food....
