More Benefits from Chlorophyll: Q & A

I used chlorophyll for about three months in an attempt to help my skin after taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen [the Pill], which made my skin really break out.

Although I didn’t see as much of an improvement in my skin with the chlorophyll as I hoped I would, I did notice other benefits such as sweeter breath (even in the morning), and I was also very regular with the bathroom visits.

I still keep chlorophyll in my fridge for occasional constipation, which isn’t really an issue for me, but it’s nice to know a healthy alternative is available.

This woman was experiencing cysts due to the birth control pill, which can be very difficult to clear up, and they would certainly not be cured by taking chlorophyll. The Pill, because it is delivering hormones to your body, can cause problems with some women’s skin. Chlorophyll is not a match for serious hormone changes, but it did help her with other issues. Because chlorophyll helps to rid toxins and medications lingering in the body, it would be a good idea for her to continue using it. She may not see startling results, but internally her body will be better off.

A good question from a breast cancer survivor. One of my out of town facial clients, Judy, is in remission for breast cancer. She is diligent about her health care and is knowledgeable about what she is putting in her body, including supplements. She posed a very good question one day during her facial. Judy asked me, since reading in my book that chlorophyll “accelerates tissue cell activity and normal regrowth of cells,” if she should take it based on her cancer history.

After asking different health professionals about Judy’s question, I kept getting the same answer: there are few if any contraindications for the use of chlorophyll. For all intents and purposes, it should be good to take, especially if you are suffering from an illness. However, you must first and foremost consult with the people who are caring for you and who know the details of your condition. If you are pregnant or dealing with a health problem, like cancer or any number of concerns, you should always contact your doctor or health specialist and ask them about any supplements you are planning on taking—before you start taking them.

I am thrilled with the results I am experiencing by adding chlorophyll to my diet. I never felt that I had a problem with elimination, but with all the other positive attributes you listed for this product, I thought I might as well give it a try.

For the past month, I have been mixing one tablespoon of chlorophyll and one tablespoon of flax oil in a cup of warm water for taking my morning vitamins, which also now include primrose oil! In the evening I mix another batch of this green drink but without the flax oil.

Where I have really noticed a difference in my health since using the chlorophyll is my sinuses. I had been experiencing sinus problems and allergies for many years; taking a Sudafed® product had become a daily occurrence, which I hated, knowing that my liver and who knows what else was probably taking a beating as a result.

Anyway, although I don’t have any absolute proof, I think the chlorophyll has eliminated my sinus problems. The chlorophyll has really been the only change in my diet this past month. It has now been about two weeks since I have taken a Sudafed! This is BIG news for me, and I’ll definitely keep you updated!

Give chlorophyll a try. It certainly cant hurt and most likely it will help youprobably in ways that you wont even see. Chlorophyll is alkaline, something that is very important to your body, your blood, and all of your cells. In short: alkalinity (inside your body) is good!
