I understand where people are coming from when they think about doing a fast or cleanse after staying in a hospital, but I actually don’t recommend doing any fasting or cleanses until someone has fully recovered. In today’s video I go over my opinion on this matter and give other suggests for what people can do instead to get healthy right after being released from the hospital.
I received a request to give my opinion on the herbal and boxed cleanses that are sold online, at health food stores, and pharmacies. Are they really safe, worth the money, and are there any that I recommend?
I am really excited to share my weight loss success story!!!
Last week I did a video giving suggestions for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Someone posted a question about my opinion of psyllium husk powder. Many doctors and natural health care practitioners recommend psyllium husk powder as a fiber supplement for those that have IBS, chronic constipation or diarrhea, which in my opinion may or may not help! In today’s video I go over this, plus give some suggestions for those that want to try a fiber supplement, whether it be psyllium husk powder or something else like chia seeds or freshly ground flax seed powder, I talk about what is available and how to take it.
The other day someone posted a question about fruit, asking if they were eating too much fruit and how would they know? This person said they are eating 10-15 fruits a day, which in my book is a lot! Doing a day or two of eating all fruit as a cleanse is fine, it’s short-term, but when someone goes on a long-term diet of exclusively eating fruit (like a fruitarian diet), or a very high fruit diet, over time they will probably run into some health issues. So in today’s video I talk about this, I also go over some of the symptoms of having too much fruit in the diet, give some recommendations and guidelines as to how much fruit is optimal, plus offer some suggestions for substitutes and alternatives. It’s all about finding a healthy balance!! 🙂
