In Response To: Detoxification, new thoughts: Is it a good thing or not? (Steve Shapiro)
This has been a confusing subject for me as well. Common sense tells me, if something makes you sick, stop doing it. Simple, right? But I have read, and I can't even remember the source, that toxins do reside in our adipose tissue.
Hypothetically speaking, and these are just my thoughts, that if you start losing fat--not weight, per se--through this diet or any other diet, aren't toxins being reintroduced into your blood stream when your body starts to burn this "fat", making the liver work extra hard, and, therefore, possibly producing the detox phenomenon? This might just be part of the puzzle.
Some food for thought......
