That sounds like a terrible experience, I'm sorry to hear you are going through that. I don't know why she's recommending drinking something that could make you feel bad, especially since they don't really 'detox' the body. The ingredients are natural diuretics so they could potentially cause you to drop a couple of pounds of water weight, and that has nothing to do with losing fat or detoxing the body. The body naturally cleanses itself, and our organs - such as our liver - filters out any perceived toxins during the digestive process. Taking a diuretic to pee more frequently doesn't help. We'll pee anyway, let the body do what it needs to do
The only true way to 'detox' is to stop putting things in our mouths that make us feel bad. And it appears that dandelion root
could be just that. Do you have allergies? Are you on any medications?
Ragweed allergy: Dandelion can cause allergic reactions when taken by mouth or applied to the skin of sensitive people. People who are allergic to ragweed and related plants (daisies, chrysanthemums, marigolds) are likely to be allergic to dandelion. If you have allergies, be sure to check with your healthcare provider before taking dandelion.
PLUS taking dandelion root can cause serious interactions with a long list of medications. Did Jillian post a warning? Probably not, I was unable to find any websites recommending dandelion root that also shared warnings.
Did you stop drinking the mixture? Do you feel any better with it out of your system?
