The experience of doing a colon cleanse detox program has many layers for the mind body and soul.
- Firstly the body and getting to know yourself better, and what works for you. Learning to listen to the body’s messages for rest, hunger, thirst and bowel movements and what feels best. This will go a long way to tap you back into who you are at your core and your own power to feel what’s best for you in every situation.
- The mind and the stories you tell yourself, for example that you cant do it and its too hard and you give up just before you see the light. Most people sadly stop at 20% when they set a goal and the rest but a smaller number of people stop at 80% of the goal being completed, before they give up. Claim your power and complete something wonderful and reap the rewards waiting for you, and then you never need to give your power away to others who you thought knew your body better than you, such as doctors with standard treatments designed to put a plaster over a symptom with a pill or surgery. Get to know your body better than anyone else.
- Thirdly your soul has incredible power to heal you and resolve all of life’s complications dramas and conflicts. Your soul is moulding you and guiding you not the other way around. A time of rest and repose will give you the opportunity to discover who you really are, what you stand for, what moves you, what you are passionate about, and what are your real values in life. During a detox program you rest more and are opening your channels to receive a better understanding. Emotions, vivid dreams show you what is ready t o be released from the subconscious mind and heal the soul experience.
Layers and layers are peeled away when we detox in a physical mental and spiritual sense. Detox your blocks, feed your soul, and love your body and she will love you.

Should I have a juice or electrolyte broth?
Electrolytes are important because they help to balance the amount of water in your body. And balance your alkaline and acid levels in your body’s. The acid/base (pH) level is assisted by electrolytes. Electrolytes include, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Bicarbonate.

Raw fresh vegetables in fresh raw juices are the best way to raise your electrolytes.
The longer you cook vegetables the fewer electrolytes. The water from steamed vegetables holds the released electrolytes if you drink this soon after steaming as a broth you can benefit from these electrolytes.
Why do I need to take enzymes?
Enzymes are essential for digestion, liver function and much more. Enzymes are a protein that creates a chemical reaction that breaks down the food that you consume. If there are not enough enzymes food cannot be broken down and absorbed. Digestive enzymes help your body break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from food. This is necessary to allow for the absorption of nutrients and to maintain optimal health. Without these enzymes, the nutrients in your food go to waste
Why Do I need Probiotics?
The main job of probiotics, is to create good bacteria, to maintain a healthy balance in your body. When you are sick, or regularly have poor nutrition, bad bacteria enters your body and increases in number. This knocks your body out of balance. Good bacteria works to fight off the bad bacteria and restore the balance within your body, making you feel better.
Good bacteria keeps you healthy by supporting your immune function and controlling inflammation. Certain types of good bacteria can also help your body to digest food. Keep the bad bacteria from getting out of control and making you sick. Breakdown and absorb what you consume.
What is important to keep the body alkalised?
In the body, the acid-alkaline balance is important. This is because many functions in the body occur only at a certain level of acidity or alkalinity. For example, the skin, stomach, bladder, and vaginal area are highly acidic to protect us from outside invaders . Keeping a pH balance in your body is crucial to your overall health. Excess acidity in the body can become a dangerous environment that weakens the body, creating the ideal conditions for disease. When excess acids need to be neutralized, we use the body’s alkaline reserves, leaving us in a weakened state. The deeper you breathe, the more alkalising is the effect on your body There are better foods for promoting your pH balance including fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, herbal teas, seeds, green juice, melons, lemons and seeds are some of the best alkaline foods.
How should I best prepare for the detox and cleanse?
To prepare for your detox and colon cleanse reduce day by day over a period of a week the heavy proteins such as meat and fish and carbohydrates that are hard to digest and you can fin the clean fresh start laid out for you in Clean Fresh Start and how to start your detox at home.

There are numerous symptoms that can occur as everyone is different, Some detox symptoms include feeling tired, headaches, body aches, nausea, brain fog and irritability, bad body odour, furry tongue, irritation and a short temper. You may also experience acne or skin irritation because your skin is a large exit pathway for toxins.
Vivid dreams, highs and lows in energy and emotions its a great time to detox the mind as well as the body.
What is Mucoid Plaque?
Mucoid Plaque is the given name for the build-up of this mucus that is mostly created by the consumption of the most mucus producing foods, such as refined starches, sugar, dairy products and meat. When the walls of the intestines are slowly over time coated with this mucoid plaque, the nutrients the body needs to absorb for proper function and performance cannot be absorbed. In addition, sticky mucoid plaque is a breeding ground for parasitic infestation. A mucoid plaque cleanse is essential in order to maintain a healthy colon
Mucoid plaque is that this sticky substance adheres to the walls of the colon, causing a blockage and makes it more difficult for your body to remove old waste matter. The intestines produce a mucus for lubrication to make it easier for waste to move smoothly though and out, this mucus will cover over undigested particles of food, which then become a festering ground for bad bacteria and parasites. This mucus over time becomes dried into a dark brown and black rubbery sticky goo and long sections of your intestines can be covered in this sticky plaque. Mucoid plaque comes out in the colon cleanse and detox program as long black rubbery strings or as pellets wrapped up in the discharge from the high fibre and cleansing shakes.
How do I get rid of mucoid plaque?
Mucoid plaque is sticky and persistent, and it can be stubborn to remove and will lead to an extremely uncomfortable digestion feeling if not treated. The best way to get rid of mucoid plaque is to regularly cleanse your bowels – you can do this either by changing your diet (raw juices, high fibre raw foods) which will take a long time even years to dissolve and eliminate the old waste and mucoid plaque or you can use a colon cleanse detox program for 7 days or more help initiate and speed up the process. You may not get all of the colon clean first time so we recommend a regular service and colon cleanse overhaul twice a year.
What can I eat on the detox and cleanse?
To best prepare for your detox and cleanse you will be reducing your food intake to fresh raw food reduce caffeine, alcohol and any products that are not on the list in the booklet provided. Whilst you do the detox cleanse you will not be eating solid food for 3 days whilst you do the fast and allow your body to totally reset and do its housekeeping. You can eat again after the fasting days and slowly re introduce your food intake in the way described.
What is a fast and why do I need to fast?
Simply put, it means you stop eating completely, or almost completely, for a certain stretch of time. Fasting enhances your metabolic processes in the body that works to decrease inflammation, as well as improve blood sugar regulation and physical stress response.
Fasting has a unique way of cutting through and protecting you from chronic diseases and radically reducing inflammation and improving overall fitness. Fasting with the colon cleanse detox program is well known for the bonus to great health balances and maintains your weight.
There are many known benefits to fasting as it gives a boost to cognitive performance and creates and helps you appreciate your body that much more. One of the additional benefits of fasting is that this can help you detox and cleanse your soul, and know your soul as you build a better relationship with yourself your body and know yourself as soul. That’s why all religions since the dawn of time advocate a fasting period in the year.
What do I do if I take medication or contraception during the detox?
When you are on the colon cleanse and detox program and need to take medication even contraception do this 1 hour after you take the high fibre shake. As the shake removes all it comes in contact with and in its path. Your medication will disappear and be taken out via the bowel.
Can I still work as normal during the colon cleanse detox program?
It is advisable to book at least 3 days off from running around and taxing your brain as this takes valuable energy that is needed to allow the body to do the cleanse. The cleanse works best and most efficiently at the times you rest. Most people who cleanse allow quality down time for the cleanse to do its best and when they are tired they sleep learning to listen to their body. If you are working you will be using valuable energy and the cleanse will not reach the parts that it needs to reach. I highly recommend that you take the Full 7 days to rest and reset and reboot your entire mind body and soul.
What do I do if I am hungry?
When you are hungry see this as a good sign, which means you are entering and transitioning to used the stored energy you have in reserve. It takes 72 hours to enter Ketosis and use stored fat for fuel. When you feel hungry drink some water and do something to relax and focus on instead of the hunger. Most often you are not hungry at all but emotional, feel uncomfortable and or bored and have the sensation to fill that void. As you fast you are inviting to get to know your real hunger levels and that you can know your body better. Build a strong relationship with yourself and your body signals and language and create the ultimate body connection.
