I did that Dr. Anderson cleanse with the herbs and shakes 4 times over a two-year period. The first time, a goodly amount of the "plaque" was removed and I lost 10 lbs. and two inches off my waist. The 2nd time even MORE of the "plaque" came out. The third time, much less ropy stuff, and the 4th time, NO ropy stuff at all. How would they explain this, I wonder?
