Customer :

I was told by Nancy Yilk shes a medical writer and has a store said I drank it to fast so the alcohol went to my head. But that was 4 days ago. I just took tylenol 1000mg 1x

DR HASAN :

Thanks for your input

DR HASAN :

The headache as you know is just a symptom and the cause behind it always should be evaluated heel detox does have a side effect that it can cause headache

DR HASAN :

you have the option to take tylenol but with one dosage its not sufficient to expect a relief

DR HASAN :

You should take it 6 hrly and if no response in nect 12 to 24 hrs then get yourself checked by your doctor

Customer :

I've used it before and I never had a problem, why do I have a problem now?

DR HASAN :

its not necessary that its a side effect of heel detox

Customer :

Why did it cause me to have a headache

DR HASAN :

i just mentioned to inform you that headache is a side effect of heel detox

DR HASAN :

its just a side effect , no cause has been revealed so far for its association with headache

DR HASAN :

but as i said that without evaluation one cannot figure out that your headache is a side effect or something else

Hello
The heel products are homeopathic.

They are ultra high dilutions of substances and do not have "side effects" in the normal sense.

If you are a sensitive individual, you might prove one of the remedies in the product.

In other words, a remedy that evokes an energetic response in a sensitive individual [proving] would do this temporarily...if this were the case, an anti-dote such as a cup of coffee, or inhaling vicks vapor rub, would antidote the remedy and stop the reaction.

This is true of an aggravation of existing symptoms as well.

If none of this works..it is not the heel and other causes need to be investigated for the headaches.

Any new headache should in fact be evaluated by exam.

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......

Relist: Other.
I cant get an answer because as it was mentioned that I have to see my medical provider. So don't charge my credit card. Thank you I don't need any further answers or questions. The only person who could help me would be the persons who know made the product or really understands how it works. I don't know how long I will have to suffer.
