Peeps have been asking about the process of the cleanse I am on. *Yes, I am still on it. So, I thought I’d write it out for you all. I will link to the specific herbs and tonics through Blessed Herbs, but will give you the breakdown of events as they occur.
I started out with the Colon Cleanse. Eight Days. Three days of decreasing eating. Five Fasting. Once you are fasting you take the Toxin Absorber five times a day with apple cider. It is vital that you drink a lot of water so you don’t get toxin absorber stuck in your system. The Toxin Absorber is an herbal supplement of Psyllium seed husks, Apple pectin, Ginger root OR Peppermint leaf, and Bentonite clay and goes throughout your intestines gathering up crap, bad bacteria coming out as mucoid plaque. It comes out, ummm, interestingly. You are supported in this by a digestive stimulator which acts much like insoluble fiber and moves it all along.
After that I waited about a week just eating well so not to build up new crap in my newly cleaned out colon and got ready to address the rest of my system. I was taking the toxin absorber daily and making sure the body was maintaining stasis.
The Internal Cleanse lasts 21 days and acts a follow up to a clean colon by cleansing the liver, lungs, kidneys, skin and lymph. While on the IC you continue to take the toxin absorber and digestive stimulator adding in herbs and a liquid formula.
The first week concentrates on removing parasites in your small intestine and cleansing the gallbladder and liver. The liquid formula is vile. I had a major reaction this week (vertigo). No parasites though. (ya!) The second week was bladder, lung and kidney. The third week is lymph, blood and skin.
It is vital that your continue to take the toxin absorber and digestive stimulator so you can continue to push out the toxins. It is also important to eat as clean as possible for you so that you don’t build up toxins in the process. They recommend you eat one “level” above how you regularly eat. For example, if you eat animal protein and processed foods then you could continue to eat animal protein, but take out the processed foods. They recommend eating organic, non-processed foods, but try to make it accessible to as many people as possible.
The Internal Cleanse is definitely more mellow of a process. Sometimes I forget I am doing it, but do feel that it is making a difference. Not only is it reinforcing a better eating style I am cleaning out the bad bacteria and nightly replacing it with good bacteria so that my body can work more efficiently.
My whole system will be all cleansed out on Friday. In all a five week process. Pretty intense, but definitely something I would do again.
