Of course, there are various cleansing programs available and each person must choose the right one for them. When I’m going to detox, I’m going all in and choosing one of the most intense and effective. The below program is what I’ve done twice.
The program relies on the products from the Arise and Shine line of cleansing products, namely:
Psyllium Husk – to gently scrap debris out of the body
Bentonite Clay – to bind to toxins as they are released
– Psyllium Husk and Bentonite clay are mixed together to form a ‘shake’ and depending on its consistency it can be more like eating mud than drinking a shake and absolutely repulsive.
Chomper Capsules – to help break up debris and release toxins
Herbal Nutrition – to provide nutrition to the body in the absence of food
Flora Grow – to encourage the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut
Therefore, each day on this program you would take 5 shakes and 31pills total. Don’t take the bentonite clay within 70min of nutrients, herbals, etc as it blocks absorption of everything. Depending on the where you do your cleanse, juice, coconut water, and vegetable broth may also be provided daily. Obviously, there are no solid foods involved.
Most 7-day fasts include 2 colemas/day with a coffee solution, whereas 3-5day fasts only have 1 colema/day. (Also known as colonic or enema.) It usually takes about 40-45minutes to complete this procedure.
A daily schedule might look something like this:
|7:00 am||Shake (Bentonite & Clay)|
|8:30 am||Herbs (3 Herbal nutrition & 3 chomper)|
|2:50 pm||Fresh juice|
|7:00 pm||Vegetable Broth|
Yes, its very structured and you do need to be rather precise in your timings. In many ways that’s good though, as it gives you something to follow so you don’t dream about food every moment and don’t procrastinate the parts you don’t like.
Its intense, but well worth it. And what else have you got to do sitting on the beach? And when you think about it, to not eat for 1 week out of your entire life, is really not that big of a deal. It just sucks when that week is spent in Thailand, one of my favorite cuisines!
