Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q: Do I have to be in the bathroom all the time?

While you will be going to the bathroom more often, you will not experience it as an overwhelming, uncontrollable or urgent need. The Digestive Stimulator™ has been formulated to act very gently, but surely, with your body. You will find it quick, easy, and comfortable to have three or more bowel movements a day.

 
Q: When will I start to see mucoid plaque?

The majority of users generally report seeing mucoid plaque on the second to third day. This is because the intestines take time to empty of solid food and begin the cleansing process. In fact one can choose to do an additional five days of liquids–only fasting, for a total of 10 days. Many people who have done this have found the most mucoid plaque actually comes out on days six to nine.

 
Q: How will I feel during the cleanse?

Each person feels differently as they cleanse. Some feel very energetic and more alive while cleansing; others not until after they have completed their cleanse. It is also possible to alternate between feeling great and not so great.

There may be occasional discomforts called cleansing reactions, which are a sign that your body is releasing toxins. If the body is ready, some may even experience a deep cleansing reaction. This can happen during the cleanse, but more likely will occur sometime later when you have built up your strength. All these experiences are the body's wisdom at work focusing on the areas that need to reach optimal health. Any discomforts of cleansing are only temporary, and always lead to more energy, vitality, and renewed health.

 
Q: Can I exercise while doing the Colon Cleansing Kit™?

If you are feeling good and strong, then exercise, but keep to an easy routine. Don't do strenuous exercise while on the liquid diet. For example, walk - don't run, stretch, and don't do heavy lifting.

 
Q: What is a liquids-only diet?

A liquids-only diet is not taking any solid foods or solid foods that have been liquefied, pureed, or blended. The liquids should be clear of any solid particles. This will allow the Toxin Absorber™ that is mixed with apple juice to bind easily to the surface of your intestines without the interference of any solid food covering the intestinal surface.

The recommended liquids are: pure water, strained herbal tea, strained organic apple juice and strained organic vegetable broth (recipe is in our downloadable Users Guide). It is best to make your own fresh apple juice from organic, raw apples using a juicer. Juice in bottles or packages has undergone high heat which destroys helpful enzymes, life force and reduces the level of vitamins. Still bottled, organic, 100% fruit juice is all right to use, if that is all that is available to you. Since it is not possible to juice your apples ahead of time to take with you to work or on the go, because the juice oxidizes and turns brown within minutes, a possible solution is to take fresh juice whenever you are home and bottled/packaged juice whenever you leave home and are out and about.

If bottled/packaged juice is all that is available to you, it is better to cleanse with that than to not cleanse at all. Just be sure to avoid concentrated powders or bottled juice that only has a partial fruit juice content, contains sugar and/or other additives and is not organically grown.

 
Q: Will I be hungry all the time?

Taking Toxin Absorber™ five times a day will greatly reduce hunger pains. Also, you can have an organic vegetable soup broth or more apple juice if you need a little extra energy. Most people report they do not feel hungry during the cleanse.

 
Q: If I eat during the Colon Cleansing Kit™ will I still get out the plaque?

No, you may get out small bits, but it takes fasting on liquids to allow the Toxin Absorber™ to bind to the "plaque" rather than solid food in order to move the plaque out. That is why we say there are three ways to use the Kit. If you elect to eat, you will not get out any large amount of plaque, but you will still be cleansing and eliminating toxins throughout your intestinal system as well as establishing regularity and rejuvenating your digestion.

 
Q: I need more than 4 Digestive Stimulator™ capsules to have daily bowel movements. Is that OK?

That is perfectly OK, because you have discovered what your body needs. The average dose is 1–3 capsules for people who naturally have frequent bowel movements on their own. Those with severe constipation, that is, they usually only go once a week, will find they may need upwards of 10 or more capsules a night. The number that works for you, no matter how many or how few, is the correct number.

 
Q: How much caffeine can I have while cleansing?

The average daily consumption of caffeine for Americans is 280 milligrams (mg) a day. The average cup of coffee has 40–120 mg of caffeine, black tea 40–70 mg and soft drinks 30–50 mg. One tea bag of our Refreshing Green Tea Blend™ has around 5 mg of caffeine; the same amount in a cup of decaffeinated coffee or tea. It takes 100 mg of caffeine or more a day to produce dependence on it. Excessive amounts of caffeine, more than 500 mg a day, cause serious side effects.

While it is best to avoid the average daily level of "caffeine" drinks or foods during cleansing because of over stimulation of the liver, kidneys, adrenal glands and heart, we realize for some people this will mean experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Remember we are trying to free up the body's energy to make it more available for cleansing, not expend that energy for the sake of stimulation alone. The best alternative is to have as many cups (10 cups maximum a day) of the Refreshing Green Tea Blend™ as you need to minimize the effects of withdrawal, and keep you fully functional. It averages less than 5 mg of caffeine per tea bag, and comes with the support of ten other cleansing, mineral rich and high antioxidant herbs that help balance this small amount of caffeine.

If your withdrawal symptoms are keeping you from performing your daily functions and the Refreshing Green Tea Blend™ is not making enough of a difference for you, we suggest restricting your intake to not more than 1 cup of coffee or black tea a day. You may use honey for a sweetener, but never use sugar. Avoid caffeinated soft drinks completely.

 
Q: Is there anything I should do after I am done with the cleanse?

After completing the Colon Cleansing Kit™ we recommend taking the Internal Cleansing Kit™ for a complete cleansing of all your organs of detoxification. After completing the Internal Cleansing Kit™, if you are in relatively good health, continue cleansing once a year, and talk with your healthcare practitioner on how to get started on a good maintenance program. If you have severe health problems, cleansing two to three times a year for several years is recommended, along with any protocols your healthcare practitioner determines as necessary.

For everyday cleansing support and a high nutrition formula, try our 100% Organic Superfood™. In this formula, Martha has brought together 22 of the highest quality 100% certified organic ingredients, chosen after many months of study and research. She thinks this is the best superfood available and one of the few on the market that is 100% certified organically grown.

Consult After Your Cleanse for how to sustain your health improvements.

 
Q: How often should I do the Colon Cleansing Kit™?

This is best answered by listening to your body. Ultimately you are the best judge of your needs and if you intuitively feel now is the time for you to cleanse, then do so. That said, there are general minimum and maximum guidelines. What determines how often you cleanse is the state of your health and whether you have ever done any cleansing before. Those who are not in the best of health and/or have never cleansed before, will find they need to cleanse more frequently for the first 2–3 years and then return to a yearly or twice yearly maintenance program of cleansing. Minimum - once a year or once every Spring and Fall. Maximum - once every 2–3 months, followed by alternating periods of a rebuilding diet/program. Please consult your healthcare practitioner if you elect to choose this more intensive path of cleansing.

Three Ways To Do the Colon Cleansing Kit™ With or Without a Liquids-Only Fast

 

3 Options Picture

 

A quick video clip showing the 3 methods

 

90% of our customers choose to do the BEST Option of the Colon Cleansing Kit™ to achieve maximum removal of intestinal buildup. Although this is the most popular and our recommended way to cleanse, we recognize every individual has unique needs. It is still possible to achieve a worthwhile level of cleansing by choosing either the BETTER or the GOOD Option. Most important is to begin some cleansing no matter at what level.

 

BEST Option: 9 Days, 5 of Them a Liquids-Only Fast

 

Option 1

Overview of the BEST Option

For the BEST results, the Colon Cleansing Kit™ should be done over a 9 day period that includes a 5 day, liquids-only fast. Liquids-only fasting assures that Toxin Absorber's™ ability to remove old waste will not be lessened by the presence of solid food. In addition, taking Toxin Absorber™ every 3 hours, while awake, will maintain the optimum concentration of waste-removing herbs within your digestive tract and give you a sense of fullness thus lessening the feeling of hunger. This option is unequaled for removing old accumulated intestinal debris.

BEST Option: Step-by-Step

1) This method starts with a 3 day pre-cleanse with daily reductions of food portions and/or diet changes. During this time you will also discover how many Digestive Stimulator™ capsules you need to take before dinner to assure three daily bowel movements the following day. This number will vary depending on your current regularity.

2) You will follow the pre-cleanse with 5 days of liquids-only fasting, while taking Toxin Absorber™ 5 times per day (every 3 hours). Generally on the second or third day of this liquids-only fast you will begin to see the largest amount of old waste being removed from your body (results vary individually).

3) After completing your 5 day, liquids-only diet, you'll take one day to gently break your fast and resume eating solid foods again.

4) You should continue taking any remaining Digestive Stimulator™ until you have completed your bottle (if you want, you may order more and continue using it for as long as needed).

Detailed instructions for this and the other methods are included in the Users Guide and Dosage Calendar that come with every kit.

 

BETTER Option: 8 Days With Modified Diet Changes and No Fasting

 

 

Option 2

Overview of the BETTER Option

Alternatively the Colon Cleansing Kit™ may be done while eating solid foods. If you choose to eat while cleansing you can control the strength of your cleanse by varying what and how much you eat (see chart below titled "Controlling the Strength of Your Cleanse"). By eating less and/or easier to digest foods you will have a deeper cleanse with more old waste removal. This scale ranges from the strongest cleanse, occasionally eating raw fruits and vegetables with a mostly liquids diet, to the mildest cleanse, frequently eating difficult to digest foods like meat, pasta, sweets, and fried foods. If you do choose to eat, taking the Colon Cleansing Kit™ over the more intensive 5 day period will still provide a deeper cleanse than the 30 day option. This option is BETTER if you feel that fasting for 5 days will be too difficult for you.

BETTER Option: Step-by-Step

1) This method starts with a 3 day pre-cleanse where you may begin modifying your diet. During this time you will also discover how many Digestive Stimulator™ capsules you need to take before dinner to assure three daily bowel movements the following day. This number will vary depending on your current regularity.

2) Like the BEST option you will follow the pre-cleanse with 5 days of taking Toxin Absorber™ 5 times per day (every 3 hours). During this time you will use the chart below titled "Controlling the Strength of Your Cleanse". This chart will show the effects of eating more or less during your cleanse and will help you choose exactly what and how much you want to eat while cleansing.

3) Again you should continue taking any remaining Digestive Stimulator™ until you have completed your bottle (if you want, you may order more and continue using it for as long as needed).

 

GOOD Option: 30 Days With Optional Changes to Diet and No Fasting

 

Option 3

Overview of the GOOD Option

The third option is to take one packet of Toxin Absorber™ 1 hour before bed each night for 30 days. In addition you may elect to make dietary changes as mentioned above. This method is GOOD if you are usually constipated and want to establish a pattern of regularity or simply want a very gentle cleanse.

GOOD Option: Step-by-Step

1) This method starts with a 3 day pre-cleanse where you will discover how many capsules of Digestive Stimulator™ you need in order to have three plus bowel movements per day. You will continue taking this number before dinner and one packet of Toxin Absorber™ each night 1 hour before bed for 30 days.

2) Optional diet changes (see chart below titled "Controlling the Strength of Your Cleanse").

3) Again, after the 30 day period you may continue taking any remaining Digestive Stimulator™ (if you want you may order more and take it for as long as needed).

Note: If you currently have bowel movements less than every 3 days you will probably need to order an additional bottle of Digestive Stimulator™ or you may run out before completing the GOOD Option of the Colon Cleansing Kit™.

 

Dietary Changes and the Strength of Your Cleanse

 

Food

As mentioned above you can control the strength of your cleanse (see chart below titled "Controlling the Strength of Your Cleanse") by varying what and how much you eat. By eating less and/or easier to digest foods you will have a deeper cleanse with more old waste removal. This scale ranges from a liquids-only diet to 3 full meals per day plus snacks.

Remember, it is recommended that you do a liquids-only fast for the 5 days of intensive colon cleansing. If you are looking for maximum results you should only elect to eat as a second option if you feel liquids-only fasting is too harsh for your body, or if you are unable to do a liquids-only fast for other health reasons.

Specific Foods to Eliminate While Cleansing

Some foods are particularly difficult for the body to digest or process. Below is a list of foods that are beneficial to eliminate while cleansing.

  • Dairy products including cheese, ice cream, milk, and yogurt because they clog and congest, thus slowing down the elimination of toxins and old intestinal waste
  • Fried foods, especially pan-fried with oil or deep-fried because they also clog and congest
  • Processed sugar (white sugar, artificial sweeteners, corn syrup, etc) in candy, soft drinks, or added to food, because they depress the immune system
  • Common Iodized Table Salt because it constricts and holds in toxins (you can use unrefined, untreated earth or sea salt lightly)
  • Meat because it takes the most energy to digest and slows cleansing

 

Controlling the Strength of Your Cleanse

 

All options will use this chart below during Step 1. Then the BEST Option will follow with a liquids–only fast, while the BETTER and GOOD Options will continue to use the chart throughout Step 2.

This chart gives a more in-depth look at the effects of eating different diets while taking the Colon Cleansing Kit™.

To use this chart, locate your current diet type in each column.

You can make your cleanse stronger and more effective by moving up in any column or in any combination of columns.

Likewise, if your cleanse becomes too strong, you can move down in any column to soften the effects.

Note: Raw and organic juices are the best because they are packed with readily available nutrition which requires less energy for your body to digest. No pesticide residues means less toxic exposure for your body cells and less energy expenditure to process toxins.
