    I did a body cleanse to lose weight.

    Did you do drips as a blood and skin cleanse?

    Yes, I've had to do a lot of IVs to cleanse my body. Hypodermoclysis was done almost every week but it was a gentle regimen to help me lose weight gradually. I had bad skin and was also treated for dermatitis. Then I got sick with an infectious disease and was placed in a clinic to cleanse my body. All in all, I liked how the diet and drip treatment worked for me. In the case of dehydration, parenteral hydration decisions must be made in dying palliative patients. This is not a simple decision, it requires an individual approach for each patient.

    Exhausting your body with exercise and a calorie-deficit diet won't do you any good. Your body needs enough energy to function correctly throughout the day. Your power and energy come from the calories that you consume daily. I recommend seeing a professional and follow a balanced diet along with exercise. If you're looking to improve your performance at the gym, then find good fitness supplements that will help you stay strong and motivated. I struggled with extra weight for a long time, but I was never a fan of calorie-deficit diets. I also consume supplements from to improve my energy and relieve post-workout soreness.
