Goudie IN KNOXVILLE 301 S. Timber-289-4214 from lack of food. Perhaps this woman should be stopped from giving advice. What do you thJnk? Dear Reader — I do not ap prove of the do-it-yourself water fast idea. Any severe fasting should be done under medica supervision. Fasting works wet in the hospital for weight loss but it can cause significan chemical changes in the body Doing without food for pro-j ionged periods of time can cause a simple "hunger headache." As far as washing out large amounts of toxins from the body by being on a water fast, this is nonsense. If the normal body mechanisms are properly fune tinning and a person is drink' ing an adequate amount of fluids and eating a normal diet the body will eliminate all ex cess chemical waste products that are present that should be eliminated. Drinking additiona" water won't change that situation. Our body is not riddled with toxins as many people seem to think. Even the bowels are not a huge source of toxic chemicals that adversely affect our health. This latter notion is' the basis for a lot of unnecessary laxative habits that actual-' ly lead to poor health in some individuals. The only sensible way to lose weight and at the same time not jeopardize your health is to learn to use the proper principles of diet and nutrition combined with sensible physical activity regularly. Crash projects don't help and can be downright dangerous. Dear Dr. Lamb — I read your column faithfully and I want to thank you so much for your article on the double sugars. I am a 56-year-old obese diabetic with rheumatoid arthritis and hardening of the arteries, I have three diverticuli and have had diarrhea for 40 years or more. I can't tell you the money I've spent with doctors trying to clear up my diarrhea and no cne ever came up with the cause and with your article I stopped milk and aty milk products and for the first time in recent memory I now have solid stools. It is such a pleasure not to have cramps in my abdomen all the time and at night especially. I had told doctors how I ran to the bathroom but I honestly believe because I didn't lose weight they didn't believe me, that I would go eight times a day and was always hungry. I have eaten until I vomited and was still hungry. Now I know why, with the inability to absorb milk sugar acting as a chemical laxative. Anyway, I'm so much better. I can't thank you enough. Dear Reader — Yes, there are many people who have digestive disturbances because they can't tolerate milk sugar. This has received a lot more attention in recent years. I didn't learn about it in medical school or during my specialty training but only afterward. X-rays of the digestive tract from stem to stern won't solve the problem and that is one reason why doc tors sometimes fail to make the diagnosis. I believe unaware- noss of the problems that undi- gerted milk can cause and the bad effects of too much coffee on the digestive tract are two of the most frequent unrecog nized causes of indigestion Look your best and see your best with prescription sun glasses All colors... all sizes... all styles from mod to conservative And the fabulous Photo-Gray lenses and Photo-Sun lenses both get darker or lighter according to light conditions.
