Detoxing can also be a good way to get rid of belly weight,  I just read an interesting article on how Leptin Resistance is the main reason why women find it harder to lose weight compared to men http://nextlifetoday.com/venus-factor/

Grow it in your backyard and if not that then grow it in a big pot, as it grows wild. You can always get it at any Indians grocery stores.

Sounds like ALOT of reasons are why EACH INDIVIDUAL NEEDS to look at what they are doing that is causing them discomfort. Gaining too much weight? maybe your eating differently and need to change and look at what your eating, next, if your an addict for booze or drugs, same thing. Everyone can use a DETOX, it's just another way of saying, WHAT AM "I" willing to do to change the way I am living my life and why 'I" am unhappy about what I am doing to stir the DETERMINATION to make the changes to detoxify my life and the things I am not happy about about ME. And no matter how many other friends, relatives, and supported folks you know try to convince you, it's OUR SELVES THAT NEED TO MAKE THE CHANGE.
