Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I had a heart attack almost four years ago at age 46. I am trying to incorpotate natural supplements and would like to some day get off of some of these other drugs. (I must say that scares me a little too, because of the chance of having another one). I would also like to do a full body cleanse and fast in the future, but again dont know how that will affect the meds etc.
