I am a true believer of the Master Cleanse and its immense overall benefits -- having personally done it 8 times.
I have a question however about it's effect on someone who has had numerous metallic implants like total hip replacements and very large metal nails inserted in various locations in their body.
I have seen some posts regarding implants but unable to find any that are relevant to my query.
My understanding based on experience is that the cleanse in itself is extremely powerful in what it does best, ie., removing everything unwanted from your body and to bring about balance where needed.
My uncertainty however is if someone with 'heavy metal' all over their insides did the cleanse, wouldn't the new cleansed body become a sort of vacuum and thereby seek out the metal implants and leach toxic metal into their system. I am almost certain that the cleanse can dissolve many things hampering the normal functioning of the body with relative ease. Not too certain if metal implants can withstand the 'corrosive' power of the cleanse.
Wouldn't this therefore result in corroded metal implants that could do more harm to the body and also spread more metal throughout the body?
I am asking because a friend who's had major surgical implants due to a traffic accident could benefit from the cleanse due to other health concerns.
Any views are greatly appreciated.
I worked for years as a nurse in the orthopedic unit of a hospital where we performed hip replacements, spinal fusions, etc. In my years there, I passed along the original master cleanse book to many patients. Many of them have completed cleanses and have never had a problem with their metal implants. The implants are made of titanium, which will not corrode.
While your friend is on the cleanse, he will experience aching, pain and discomfort around every implant. The cleanse helps your body to heal old injuries, and any injury will become sore during a few days of the cleanse. The discomfort will fade as the body heals itself.
