  • Water fasting is best for detoxing and should be supervised (I sent you a PM :)

    You should also take note that your body cleanses itself on a daily basis.

  • You should talk to your dr. first since you have an autoimmune disease.. also water fasting is not ALWAYS the best way. The reason there are supplemental ways to detox is that your organs need support while detoxing, especially for those who have underlying medical conditions. As an herbalist, I would recommend doing a 30 day cleanse, a very gentle one at first. PM me if you want more information on some different brands I can recommend, however, you should still mention it to your dr. Going to your local healthfood store and speaking to an herbalist or counselor is also a good idea.

  • Believe it or not the best way to do it is water with lemon juice. It neutralizes your body's acidity and help get rid of all your toxins.
