first, i will say that JFG is possibly one of the healthiest-looking individuals you could ever hope to meet. so whatever she's doing is working.

i don't measure, but i drink lots of water. i take lots of vitamin C in the dead of winter or when i feel the onset of a cold and i'm always able to fight it off in a day or two (compared to the usual week). i also drink raw Kombucha tea a few times a week, and that seems to have done wonders for my immune system as well, and i secretly wonder if my fairly robust recovery from a fairly serious accident wasn't due in part to the Kombucha.

i also take flax seed oil and i can see the difference in the tone and texture of my skin.

it's all anecdotal. just look at what's out there, see what makes sense or comes from places you respect, see what you can afford (that Kombucha tea is $3 at Whole Foods, not cheap), and then stick with a regime that you notice improves your quality of life.

and i no longer drink 20 beers in a weekend.

And that was before my heavy metals detox!

I vote a big YES. I tend to rotate things, going on and off and on again various things, and when I'm in my Kombucha phase it just rocks. Helps balance the pH and is loaded with probiotics. One winter there were 3 devoted Kumbucha drinkers in my office and the 3 of us were the only ones who never got sick all winter despite being surrounded by constant sickness. More anecdotal evidence.

Plus, I don't know which brand you drink, but the one I like is GT's which seems to have more L-theanine in it than other brands because I always get a little tipsy for a few minutes when I drink it.

I used to brew it at home.

Wasn't a yes-or-no question...I was really looking for specific names of toxic substances, why they would be stored in muscle tissue rather than fat tissue, and how external application of physical pressure would cause their release.

Lactic acid to be specific. This is especially true in the case of deep tissue massage. Deeper techniques are followed by more moderate, flowing techniques to promote circulation and "flush" the toxins away from the muscle.

I always recommend clients increase their water intake and apply heat to the areas that were focused on to complement the treatment. The theory of massage releasing toxins has actually been questioned, suggesting that it's simply the relaxation of fatigued muscles that reduces soreness..

Voila

As for drinking 8 glasses.. I don't keep track, but I drink a lot of fluids throughout the day and I feel really unwell if I don't. You might not need exactly 8, but staying hydrated is good for all kinds of things anyway.
