Order of Cleanses
In the process of detoxing the body one should cleanse in this order…
- Colon Cleanses C.A.D. or M.D.C. or similar colon cleanse.
- Kidney Cleanses
- Parasite Cleanses
- Liver Cleanses
- Blood Cleanses
This will ensure that detoxing one organ system will not overburden the others. The Candida Albicans Detox (C.A.D.) or Mucoid Dissolve Cleanse (M.D.C.) or a similar colon cleanse will clear the gastrointestinal tract. This will allow the elimination of toxins and waste through the cleansed systems when undertaking the subsequent cleanses, ie Kidney Detox, Liver Detox and finally the blood detox. The Blood Cleanses are relatively short detoxes that are often just a “fast” one day a week that can be built up to an extended three-day period.
These fasts or cleanses should be taken in the proper order when the body has adjusted to the probable ongoing C.A.D. or M.D.C. cleanse. Fasts and cleanses may lead to the body releasing built up toxins and result in a die off or herxheimer reaction. This is why the detox order should be followed. The body’s systems should be cleared in a progressive order to ensure that it can eliminate these released toxins. Fasts and cleanses should become a part of one’s routine taken fairly often. Once a week or bi-weekly rotated out through the schedule of cleanses and detoxes mentioned above.
Blood of course is vital to the body and the health of blood affects the health of the body’s functioning. It feeds all other organs with oxygen and nutrients. It also transports hormones and nutrients throughout the body. The proper health of one’s blood is needed for maintenance of a strong immune system. This is because the blood and lymph carry toxic substances taken in by food and the natural metabolic wastes of the body. The liver, kidneys and lymphatic system work continuously to cleanse the blood of unwanted toxins, pathogens and impurities. However, sometimes the work load is just too much and these toxins begin to build up in the muscle tissue and blood.
When toxins are ingested through pollution and unhealthy food and drink they collect in the blood. Over time, these toxins can contribute to emotional imbalances as well as stress and physical exhaustion. When the body’s immune system is overstressed, the liver and kidneys and colon become impaired in their function. When these systems are operating at an impaired level the toxins that are normally neutralized and eliminated may linger in the bloodstream. Regular detoxification will help rejuvenate the system, improve liver function and restore health.
Diet is important in cleansing the blood. Follow a juice diet for three days, unless one has a degenerative disease. A juice diet or fast is not recommended in these cases because the toxins released by a fast (Herxheimer Reaction) may be more than the body and blood can detoxify. If a fast is undertaken one must be aware of the Herxheimer reaction and be prepared to curb the fast or detox if necessary.
After the fast, eat only very pure foods, including as much organic food as possible, and avoid canned, frozen, and processed foods. Do not eat food that contains any additives, including colors, flavors, and preservatives. Avoid sugar, sodas, artificial sweeteners, and fried foods. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables will assist in maintaining proper blood health. Plenty of garlic in addition to cilantro and the Spices and Herbs previously discussed should be a staple in one’s diet.
Cilantro & Garlic
Some studies have shown that the leaves of the coriander plant can accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead and aluminium from the body. This is an especially useful herb in blood purifying and an excellent recipe for a “Cilantro Pesto” is on the Spices & Herbs page. Garlic has been used for its beneficial effects for thousands of years. It is a blood cleanser, a natural antibiotic it also reduces blood fats thinning the blood and lowering blood pressure. Swallowing whole peeled cloves prevents the sulfur from clinging to one’s mouth and tongue. One to three small cloves per day is beneficial.
Allicin-C If consuming raw garlic is not an option this product is amazing. One capsule equals 36 cloves of the anti-microbial killing power of garlic. Allicin C causes no odor. Each Allicin C capsule provides 270 mg of pure, stabilized Allicin from Garlic along with 60 mg Vitamin C and 40 mg citrus bioflavonoids. This revolutionary combination has been scientifically proven to be lethal to MRSA and other bacteria that are resistant to scores of antibiotics.
Herbal Blood Purifiers
Many herbs and botanicals are used in natural liver detox remedies. These botanicals will cleanse the blood and support proper blood health and function.
- Parsley is an effective blood purifier.
- Dandelion assists in cleansing the blood and fortifies the liver.
- Fennel helps to cleanse and detoxify the system and improve liver functioning.
- Milk Thistle helps to cleanse the liver and the blood.
- Verbena officinalis referred to as a “blood purifying herb”. Works as a powerful natural herbal liver cleanser, liver-stimulant and enhancer.
- Wheat Grass Juice It cleanses the blood by improving the supply of oxygen to the circulatory system; detoxifies and regenerates the liver; and protects from carcinogens in the food or the environment. Wheatgrass has shown to expand the blood vessels and improve circulation; thus improving oxygenation of blood and the ability to rid the blood of toxins. It is one molecule different from hemoglobin.
- Aloe Vera is known for boosting oxygenation of the blood.
- Liquid Chlorophyll is another excellent detoxifier and antiseptic for the internal organs, especially the digestive tract and bloodstream.
Good nutrition is required for healthy blood. A raw food diet and supplements to round out the body’s need for vitamins & minerals is suggested. Supplements with high levels of antioxidants will cleanse and fortify the blood and stimulate white blood cells. Vitamin C taken in small doses during the day will boost the blood and circulation system also. Consider adding digestive enzymes to one’s regimen. Enzymes assist cleansing the blood by breaking down undigested proteins and pathogens that may be inside food. Probiotics are also suggested as they increase the immune system’s overall health.
Steep 1 tbsp. dried peppermint in 8 oz. of distilled water. Double the amount if using fresh herbs. Steep dried herbs in boiling water for five to 10 minutes. Drink once or twice a day.
This detoxing fast has been very popular recently. The master cleanse is a detox cleanse that gently purifies the liver and the blood. It flushes toxins, metabolic wastes and pathogens from the body. It tones the body’s many systems and stimulates the immune system. This can be undertaken as a short one day fast or extended over several days. There is a possibility of a herxing reaction when the stored up toxins are broken up and released into the blood for elimination. Slight flu-like effects. This is a sign that the cleanse is working. Ending the fast or slightly backing off of it will remedy these symptoms.
- 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice (1/2 lemon)
- 1-2 tbsp of pure grade B maple syrup
- 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper (red) or to taste
- 8-10 oz of purified water (very warm to medium hot)
Combine all master cleanse ingredients and drink. During this fast it is recommended that one consumes 8 or more glasses of this recipe.
Grade B Maple Syrup is what sustains one during the master cleanse. Maple syrup contains a large variety of minerals and vitamins. These include: potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, phosphorus, sulfur, chlorine and silicon. Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, C, nicotinic acid and pantothenic acid are also present.
The Master Cleanse will loosen the mucous and biofilm in the G.I. tract. This fast has no fiber in its ingredients. It is recommended to add 1 teaspoon of psyllium to the first glass of each morning during the fast. Also add 1 teaspoon to the last glass of each night. The Psyllium is a great source of fiber and will help the colon eliminate all the wastes and mucous cleared by the fast.
Vitacost is an excellent online supplier of herbs and supplements.
Warning: One may suffer a worsening of certain symptoms during the use of many treatments and especially during cleanses. This is a short-term detoxification reaction in the body. This reaction is known as the Herxhiemer Reaction. This is a natural response to toxins and pathogens that are released when parasites, fungi, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens are being effectively killed off and the body does not effectively eliminate the toxins quickly enough.
Methods of Relieving Herxheimer Reactions
- Drink plenty of filtered water.
- Add vitamin C to regimen.
- Add vitamin E to regimen.
- Take more proteases (something like Purify, Repair, Peptizyde, Peptidase Complete, Vitalzym, ViraStop, Wobenzyme, etc. between meals…like 3-4 capsules every 3-4 hours)
- Epsom salts baths help with calming and detox.
- Plenty of rest and sleep.
- Take Activated Charcoal which helps absorb toxins.
