Caution #1: A cleansing, detoxification fast is a serious endeavor. Undertaking such a program while seriously ill or fighting disease is not recommended. WARNING TO WOMEN: Undertaking a cleansing, detoxification fast while pregnant or nursing is not recommended.
Caution #2: Detoxification is not a quick fix. It takes time... a lot of time. I have learned one extremely important thing in my studies. Detoxification is a long term process. Some manufacturers would have you believe that if you take their product your body will be metal-free in sixty days. Hogwash. Detoxification make take months to years. When done safely, it is a slow and gradual process. Having said that, a commitment of six month's to one year's work can make a tremendous difference in your health and to your future.
Caution #3: Children often carry as much heavy metal body burden as do adults. After all, they receive it before birth via their parents, they receive it throughout their early years via vaccinations, and they receive it again and again through water, air and food contamination. Seek professional guidance to establish nutritional supplementation recommendations and relevant dosages for children.
Caution #4: I make no recommendations about taking nutritional supplements or pharmaceutical chelators. I do, however, recommend one thing. I suggest you enlist the support of three key professionals to advise and supervise you regarding your detoxification endeavors. Find a qualified medical practitioner and a dentist who understand the reasons for heavy metal detoxification, and find a colon hydrotherapist. All are necessary coaches in this process.
Having said all of the above... if you will make the commitment to do the WORK involved, then this diet/cleanse is for you. Used properly, it will bring the results you want, and if you take on this process, you will intimately come to know the meaning of the words commitment, dedication, perseverance... and JOY! - Doug Hines
