In the United States, it is illegal to label products with their health benefits. Read that again. A lemon is cleansing and detoxifying but its not printed on the produce. Lemon essential oil? Well no store in America is legally allowed to claim their essential oils have any healing properties at all.
You need a Doctor and even then there are extensive limitations. What we are talking about IS medicine. The FDA has banned products from shelves that make that claim. Even in all the health food stores, from the lemons to the spirulina, no information or scientific evidence is claimed. Did you notice?
