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;

Hello 🙂 I had all the same symptoms as you are describing and almost felt depressed. I went to see many different kinds of doctors and finally my naturopathic doctor recommended I try the ‘Body Ecology Diet’. I have been on it for 2 months and am completely symptom free and lost 10 pounds of fat! I feel like a brand new person. I highly recommend you read up on it and ask your health care provider if it is right for you. Cheers!
I have to ask if your message is an advertisement of any sort? do you get any compensation at all from this Body Ecology Diet? I have followed so many miracle diets and then finally they start asking for money.. 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
I looked up the website for the ‘Body Ecology diet.’ Did you have to pay to get the diet? Thanks, Chris(Christine)
