    When people say "is your blood toxic" that's like saying "you got bad blood" in the middle ages

    One thing I found interesting about that last part was they did not quote any source. Not saying that makes it false, but couldn't they just got an actor to dress up like a doctor and say don't use detox therapy? Did anyone actually *check* to see if he was a real doctor? If nothing else could have added a source for the "It is proven colonics cause nausea vomiting etc."

    Adam is wrong about one thing here. Drinking a ton of water and sweating a whole lot will help remove toxins and other stuff out of your body. The more water you drink, the more fluid that is excreted and more toxins that can be excreted along inside of it. For example, drug metabolites: say you do a drug like cocaine or heroin, then get urine tested 3-5 days later, you might pass or fail depending on your hydration levels in that time frame and especially during the test. If you have been seriously dehydrated the entire time, then if there are metabolites in your system, they will be more concentrated than if you were drinking a gallon or 2 of water per day

    Really good episode as always. Just one tiny thing... Vitamin C is actually one of the few, things that is NEVER toxic. The body can get rid of it faster than you can consume it. I guess unless you IV directly into blood, drinking it is pretty much impossible to get toxic levels.

    • sofistar1515

    The whole toxin myth is actually really damaging. It leads to people thinking they can put whatever they like in to their bodies and not take of their health because they ink they can flush these toxins out. But the damage is already done.

    I had a gastroenterologist once to figure out why I was in so much pain. It ended up being Interstitial Cystitis, and he made me get a colonoscopy at the age of 20 just so he could make sure the pain wasn't coming from my large intestine. I have the pictures to prove it, and when I woke up I was in severe pain from all the air they pump into your colon.

    You have to have a healthy diet full of fibre and nutrients before you can heal your body. Heavy metals are toxic and you need to get them out of your body if you have them.

    I thought water fasting was the only way for your body to consume anything that it could possibly use for fuel including "toxins". Just stop fasting before your body starts consuming itself for fuel and your organs shut down.

    Adam has proven that his “research” is incomplete and highly biased. Though the word “toxin” is a buzz word. Harmful chemicals can be measured in sweat and therefore can be removed through sweating. Here’s just one article that I found with my own biased research techniques in pubmed. Do we think Adam knows what pubmed is?

    You were contradicting yourself. You said that drinking water does not remove toxins, but then you said that toxins come out via pee. Although the water in the pee will dilute the toxins, the toxins are still there. Water makes you pee

    By the way, speaking as a massage therapist with twenty years of experience, cupping is an expensive form of myofascial release, which you can do with no equipment. It doesn't just scam clients who think they need to have it, it scams LMTs who think they need to learn it.

    dont let people in china see this 😲.... alot of TCM is based on getting rid of toxing and 'bad' energy through acupuncture, cupping and massage. They say the the more purple the bruise is after cupping shows how much toxins you have in your skin 😒. Dark bruises means you are very toxic and should probably come back for another cupping.
