Detoxification      Detoxing obsession

Detox is a word widely used in health fraud scams to make us dependent addicts to products and devices that are mostly a waste of money.

Detox is promoted by fraudulent 'health' gurus as a way of maintaining health by removing 'Toxins' that build up in the body from the foods we eat and the body's natural processes and is propagated through various marketing methods by some medical, but mostly non-medical 'health' providers, self-styled health gurus and even clerics.

However we believe, and there is much impirical scientific evidence suggesting, that 'Detox' by the use of supplements, extreme diets, non-medical devices, detox plans and such like, and promoted by advertising hype is a scam.

From juice fasts to colon cleanses, detox diets to cleansing purges these helath fads are all the rage with those looking to lose weight or kick start a healthy lifestyle. But these therapies aren't as healthful as they may seem, according to reputable medical doctors, many scientific experts and nutrition experts.

For example, Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of complementary medicine at Exeter University, says "Let's be clear, there are two types of detox: one is respectable and the other isn't." The respectable one, he says, is the medical treatment of people with life-threatening drug addictions. "The other is the word being hijacked by entrepreneurs, quacks and charlatans to sell a bogus treatment that allegedly detoxifies your body of toxins you're supposed to have accumulated."
"If toxins did build up in a way your body couldn't excrete, he says, you'd likely be dead or in need of serious medical intervention."

There's no such thing as 'detoxification'. In the realm of science, it's a nonsense.
Suitable Diet and exercise is the only and the best way to keep the bowel regular and to get healthy.

British Dietetic Association

"There is no scientific evidence that any of these so-called cleanses really benefit a person's health", according to Stella L. Volpe, professor and chair of the Department of Nutrition Sciences at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
"Our livers and kidneys, if healthy, do a great job of cleansing our bodies on a daily basis. To help our body in performing the task it has perfectly evolved for, like removal of wastages, keeping the bowel regular and clean, what we need is just to provide our body real healthy suitable food like whole grain, vegetables, spices, drinking more water. Remaining focused on overall health and Balanced Diet while avoiding junk food and unhealthy highly processed food, fruit juices sweetened beverages, would go a lot farther to improve health over the long-term than a 'cleanse."

Warning on Liver Detox/ Chelation Therapy

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers over-the-counter (OTC) chelation products to be "unapproved drugs and devices" and that it is a violation of federal law to make unproven claims about these products. There are no FDA-approved OTC chelation products.

The FDA further informs and warns people that Chelation products, even when used under medical supervision, can cause serious harm, including dehydration, kidney failure, and death.

”Available scientific evidence does not support claims that chelation therapy is a safe treatment for any type of cancer. Chelation therapy may produce toxic effects, including kidney damage, irregular heartbeat, and swelling of the veins. It may also cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and temporary lowering of blood pressure. Since the therapy removes minerals from the body, there is a risk of developing low calcium levels (hypocalcemia) and bone damage. Chelation therapy may also impair the immune system and decrease the body's ability to produce insulin. People may also feel pain at the site of the EDTA injection. Chelation therapy may be dangerous in people with kidney disease, liver disease, or bleeding disorders. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use this method.
Chelation therapy is often given along with large doses of vitamins and other minerals, which may actually contribute to the processes that produce dangerous free radicals in the body. Loss of zinc can also lead to mutations in cells. For this reason, chelation therapy may actually increase the risk of cancer.”

Then the question is, why do we get trapped into Detox Scam?

The answer is that much of the presented food around us, that we and our children are forced to buy and eat - by ever present powerful marketing messages - are mostly unnatural, fiber depleted and highly processed. Consumption of such foods thwarts the bowels natural movement and its ability to eliminate feces from the intestine. Thus the bowel becomes constipated.

In such cases even one day of Intelligent Eating of selective individually suitable natural plant based edible herbs, spices, vegetables, fruits nuts and seeds added in the Balanced Diet can help remove constipation immediately and provide sensation of plethora of other health benefit.

Similarly it is sensible to note that scientific research points out that eating unhealthy food and living an unhealthy, sedentary life will often cause constipation, obesity and many other diseases.

There is much good scientific evidence warning that short-cut cures to relieve constipation, obesity, or nutrition deficiency by the use of supplements, products and devices will make us become dependents and addicts to such intervention that are, at best, a waste of money and at worst hazardous to health … Constipation and weight accumulation in the body will reoccur again unless eating and lifestyle problems are corrected.

Intelligent Eaters

Intelligent Eaters have very healthy bowel movement and overall strong health, they are Guru of themselves and thus they cannot be conned by Detox Scammers.
But it is those who are at terminal stage of life or those who do not or cannot eat wisely and believe without question in hearsay or myths, and who are easily influenced by marketing hype, are the targeted customers of Detox Scammers.

Unnatural ways of cleansing bowel will make body lose its natural ability of removing feces from the gut. Thus those who are enticed to cleaning bowel or colon by such unnatural methods will destroy the body natural excretory mechanism and they will become addicts and dependent on products and devices. This is a success of the present Marketing systems that promote the selling of disease and then cures for those diseases.
But then it is legal in our society. A terrorist will be caught, jailed and will be dealt with; but health scammers are at large and will flourish at the cost of public money and resources.
