Is this an advert? or a question? or….
not an ad– I am just trying to see what other people do about detoxing. I have fibromyalgia and was told to drink lots of water, etc. I am not into short term cleanses but would like to know if others eat or drink certain things to “detox” and get rid of toxins, especially held in fat cells. Chris

Ah thats better, I’ve had a look around to see what I can find out. Here is the page that Mayo has on alternatives. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fibromyalgia/DS00079/DSECTION=alternative-medicine
In my opinion and from personal experiance; massage therapy releases the toxins in the fat cells, if a person was to have an intensive massage the toxins are released and the immediate effects are a little negative but in the long term could be beneficial to you.
Hope this is helpful Chris.

I just started getting massages. Should I tell here to do anything special to get the toxins out? She always gives me a bottle of water to drink on the way home for the reasons you say. thanks!
I’d like to add that keep a critical eye out for negative impact of any new treatment. I had signed-up for a spa treatment package &realized that the steam treatment was unsuitable for my skin &heart. Needed to submit a doctor’s letter to cancel the package deal!
It’s only recently that I’ve been diagnosed with Crohns colitis…at that time I only have occasional palpitations & issues tolerating cold.
Having a nutritious diet is always helpful but do check with your doctor before embarking on any drastic diet plan…massages sound harmless & relaxing…enjoy!
Hey Chris, that I don’ t know. It would be a good question to ask your therapist. They might do some research for you if they don’t know. I tried to find some more information on this but the internet seems a bit gray on it today. This was the most informative article I could find on Toxins released from fat cells. Its not too clear but it might give you a better understanding of how this toxin release works;
Chris (I’m also Chris)
Definitely good advice! I would not have thought of a spa treatment as dangerous. Were you sitting in a steam room? Chris
Chris, Thanks so much for the article. I will read it and try to get back to you. Chris
chris, OK. I read the article. I had not heard of a “treatment massage” before. the physical therapist did some massage on my muscles before. But I never heard of a massage place that focused on treatments of many ailments, including why to drink water after a massage. I am on the East coast, so that place is not anywhere near me. I will pursue that line of treatment. Again, thanks! Christine
Yes, 10min in the steam room & I felt faint headed! I rested for about 10 min but didn’t feel better …they only said that it happens when people are with an empty stomach…but guess what I had eaten earlier.
Some are not trained to watch out for health problems…
Ok would be interested to know how it goes, thanks Chris.
Thanks for the warning. I have not been in the steam room for several years. Be careful! thanks, Chris
Most massage therapist know how to perform lymphatic drain, applying pressure in a certain way during massage and I think in a certain sequence, which helps expell toxins trapped in your body. The lymphatic system carries away waste to eliminative organs but there is no “pump” as exists in the circulatory system. That is why things liek exercise and massage are important because helps “move” the lymph (and toxins) especially from lower extremities. Massage does help. Drinking water after a massage enhances the process by helping the body eliminate the toxins (thru the kidneys & urine). Jogging lightly on a trampoline can help the body elimiante toxins as well as improve circulation. I purchased a mini trampoline from Al Carter in Utah and have never regreetted as it is sturdy and was one of the first that came with a stabilizer bar (so I don’t fall down!), and helps a great deal. I am not an agent of that business, just a customer. I am also not a massage therapist, just a grafeful client.
Thank you for giving me this information. Try just rubbing your hand along the inside of the other arm. I think that gets the lymphatic system working, too. Just gentle pressure. When I do that my sinuses start draining! thanks about the trampoline info. Do you know if jogging on that better for lymph drainage than just walking? chris
I believe it is the “pounding” that helps the drainage.
