The body is exposed to a large number of foreign chemicals every day. The majority are manmade chemicals that wind up in our food, air and water or are taken in the form of drugs. Our body’s ability to rid itself of toxic substances is largely dependent upon the liver. Overexposure to environmental toxins in the air and in our diet can put great strain on the liver’s detoxification systems and can rob us of our health, producing a wide variety of symptoms such as headaches, muscle and joint pain, fatigue and allergy or flu-like symptoms. This toxic build-up can also contribute to inflammatory and neurological disease. Our goal is to detoxify the liver, the colon and the body in general.*
There are many approaches to detoxification and many products. We are providing information on a quick detox that you can complete over a weekend. Whatever your reason, doing a one or two day cleanse every 6 months or so can really help you body perform at its maximum potential.
A Weekend Detox
You can do this for more than a weekend, but we know how restrictive and difficult it can be to accommodate a complicated program. In fact, many people just do this for a one-day, Saturday detox. Try it and see if it doesn’t make a difference.
Start on Friday evening by taking the Herb-lax. It can also be a great time to just everything ready for what you are going to do on Saturday and Sunday. Get all your fruits and vegetables prepared and in the refrigerator. Prepare some water by cutting up some lemons and cucumbers in filtered water, so it’s nice and cold.
It’s simple. Fresh fruit. Fresh vegetables. More vegetables than fruit.
Alfalfa: 5 tablets, 2 times a day.
Alfalfa has been recognized for centuries for its healting properties. It has eight essential enzymes that make it a useful digestive agent. It’s a great diuretic.
Fiber Tablets: 4 tablets, 2 times a day.
The fiber tabs promote better digestion and improve regularity. Fiber sweeps toxins through the colon in less time. Helps bind cholesterol. (5 tabs= 3 grams of fiber)
HerbLax: 1 to 4 tablets at bedtime.
We recommend starting with 2. If the next morning is a comfortable experience, increase to 4 tablets the 2nd night. Remember, you are cleansing your colon.
Liver DTX Complex: 3 tablets once a day. Liver DTX provides your body with the nutrients it needs to maintain healthy liver function. Its unique combination of botanical ingredients features
Milk thistle seed extract to help make proteins that help regenerate liver cels
An Enhanced Proprietary Blend of Schizandra chinensis extracts, reishi mushrooms, herbs with antioxidant properties, dandelion extracts, turmeric, artichoke, and other herbs that maintain normal bile flow.
You need to drink 3 1/2 quarts of water a day. For added benefits, infuse the water with lemon and cucumber. Drink. Drink. Drink.
What can you expect?
Each person’s experience will be unique to them. The more environmentol toxins you have built up in your body, the greater the cleansing process will be. Consider getting eight hours sleep each night during your cleanse to help the cleansing process be more efficient. Be very intentional about getting the full 3 1/2 quarters of water each day. After all, you wouldn’t send the RotoRooter man to the basement with a damp sponge to clean out clogged pipes!
Some people experience fatigue, irritability, headaches, weakness, bad breath or flu-like symptoms for the first few days. Some will get a rash. Do not treat the rash with medications. Use pure moisturizer. Shaklee’s night treatment cream works well or Vitamin E. Most people do not experience symptoms, they actually feel better from the first day. The the third day, you should experience more energy, a feeling of being internally clean and many people report that they think more clearly.
