detox vs. meds
      #277352 - 07/26/14 02:38 AM

Recently, I've heard a lot about the benefits of detoxifying the body. The question is - Will detoxing affect HIV meds? Due to the toxicity of many of the meds, will detoxifying the body reduce the effects of meds? Just curious.

Why don't you see if you can find the answer to that in the section of this site where you can place questions to doctors. Let me know what you find out.

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .

Detoxifying the body is done mostly when people are putting alot of "junk" into the body, they need to get a lot of "junk" out! Following a proper nutritional program, plenty of water, fruits / veggies, lean proteins and of course the dreaded exercise ... one should not have to pursue a detox program.

My dietician explained it to me that way as I was always very bad at extreme diet programs and fads, extreme detoxing and just adding "junk" when it wasn't necessary. A cupboard full of vitamins and cure all pills ... well she explained to toss them and eat healthy with proper exercise and the body will detox itself. It's only when you start adding alcohol, smoking, refined sugars and/or additional fats that the bodys natural detox won't be able to "keep up".

The liver, kidneys and sweat are the 3 main detox methods of the body ... I would focus on keeping them healthy as they are getting the work out from the meds and not focus on the effectivness of the meds based on a detox program.

Being on the HIV meds requires the "extreme" to be eating healthy and exercise anyway, the basic componenets to most detoxifying programs.

daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!
