Body Cleanse Experience of Orem Chiropractor
When I decided to go to chiropractic school in the late eighty's and early ninety's I knew, as a chiropractor, I would be a non traditional health care provider. I was okay with that. But I saw myself more like a podiatrist or a doctor of optometry. When I made that decision I didn't realize how much "weird" stuff there was in alternative health care. Once I started in practice I was approached by many different people peddling different products, each promising itself as the solution to a number of problems. Many I tried. Some I would consider good, others not so much.
Based on the constant "encouragement" of a friend I tried a body cleanse . This cleanse required one to not eat for three days. In the morning I was to drink sixteen ounces of prune juice. Every hour on the hour I was to drink eight ounces of apple juice. Every hour on the half hour I was to drink eight ounces of water.
Surprisingly, hunger wasn't much of an issue, other than the social reasons. I'm sure that was because of all the calories I was taking in with the apple juice. After three days I was defiantly feeling the effects of not eating, because I lost almost ten pounds.
To this day, I'm uncertain what and if there are benefits, but that discussion is outside the purpose of this post.
I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for mangosteen juice and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
