I took 2 large bottles of Swedish Bitters per directions last fall, about two - three months before I started liver flushing. I feel it definitely had a positive effect on my system/liver... may do it again this coming fall.
I have had a real difficult (almost impossible) time losing weight since getting off of anti-depressants and BP medications, even though I exercised like a demon (1.5 hours a day 5 - 6 days a week), did/do not eat sugar/sugar substitutes and 90% of my carbohydrates are from vegetables and one or two pieces of fruit a day; frustrating.
I found that I could slowly lose weight by supporting the functions of my liver, kidneys, thyroid pancreas and lymphatic system, attributing that discovery in part to the Swedish Bitters. Check out what Julia Chang has to say about the bitters on her site and pay attention to your bodies response to it. http://www.sensiblehealth.com/index.html
In the last 13 months, I have lost 45lbs and could stand to lose another 15 - 20 if it is all fat/stagnant lymph fluid loss AND I can retain\build the muscle. That is a very safe, healthy way to lose weight at about .8 pounds
a week… I can tell that I am retraining the cells in my body to work as they were intended and that the weight loss will be more permanent… not there yet but no more Yo-Yo or fad diets.
Best of health,
