her brew of fermented cabbage, water, and Himalayan pink salt has the potential to halt aging, regrow severed limbs, possibly remedy homosexuality

Having consulted with medical professionals about the claims and potential dangers from the sodium content
present in “Jilly Juice”, Dr. Phil tells guests and viewers, “What you’ve heard today, you can make up your own mind about it. I’ve pointed out that – that this lady has absolutely no training whatsoever in medicine, the medical sciences, biochemistry, neuroanatomy, nothing whatsoever.”
Continuing, he says, “She puts cabbage in water, and adds a bunch of salt, and says this will grow your limbs. And if you want to believe that, proceed at your own peril. But the lesson here is you really need to consider what you’re looking at on the internet. Just because it’s there doesn’t mean it’s right. Proceed with caution.”
