If you just take one thing away from reading my blog, please let it be this, please don’t try “natural remedies” that have been promoted by celebrities (cough…Gwyneth Paltrow or Dr. Oz) or in general.
Natural remedies could kill you
- “Detox” cleanses can send you to the emergency room (detoxing is a myth anyway)
- Gwyneth Paltrow’s smoothie recipe has arsenic, enough to be truly harmful to you
- And going to a Chiropractor can kill you
Any medicine has it’s risks (as the joke goes, that’s why they call it “practicing medicine.” But going with something untested has very high risk, where doing something that’s been throughly tested and vetted has very low risk.
So, while a special diet may not seem harmful, or even a recipe, you need to think twice before doing something that’s unproven. It may just save your life.
