It's affected my life for the better so far. I can't believe how much black stuff I got out and I think it was a ton of metals. The first few baths smelled very metallic, whereas now there is no metal smell at all at the end of the session. My husband has done fewer baths so far and still has the metal smell in the water at the end of the session. Thank God for this getting that stuff out! Of course I am going to back off and use more infrequently once cleansed, but the body tells you what to do and when to ease up. Thanks Dieter!
