You know how the literature says that Propecia takes a few weeks at most to leave the body because of tissue fixation? How come when people start a new diet, such as cutting out milk, gluten, or soy, they say to wait 90 days in order to see results? An herbalist told me the threshold is 90 days because that’s the time it takes for the blood to recycle/cleanse completely or something.
Of note, red blood cells have a life span of 120 days, but this really has nothing to do with tissue fixation. Red blood cells are not tissue nor do they carry Propecia.
You are asking me about starting a new diet and things that herbalists practice. They generally do not have any good science behind them. Let me reiterate with an example: A few of my acquaintances heard about colon cleansing (colonics) and how it rids the body of toxins, so they went as a group to try it since they thought it was a great idea. Now personally, I find it a bit disturbing to go with a group of friends to have a stranger in a white coat put a hose up my bottom, followed by flushing gallons of fluid up there for a good sum of money just so I can watch the fecal waste come out. Granted, I’d find it equally disturbing if it wasn’t a stranger… but the point is, there is no good science behind colon cleansing. All of this is a bunch of B.S. (pardon the pun).
I realize I’m going off on a tangent, but people will believe what they want to believe. I also realize there is a community of alternative medicine supporters out there, but I’m a Medical Doctor. There are some alternatives that have been shown to work just as well as claimed, but there are also many of them that are just don’t work at all.
