Make thoroughly clean
Rid (a person, place, or thing) of something seen as unpleasant, unwanted, or defiling
Fre*e (someone) from sin or guilt
Do any of these sound familiar…?
I don’t need to cleanse because:
…I poop three times a day without fail
…I eat pretty healthy
…I’m still young
…I don’t have the time
…I don’t have anything chron!c or a disease
…I am a raw foodist
…people in my family live long and they never did anything like this
The mind can behave like a brilliant lawyer, defending ‘sameness’, ‘the known zone’ and ‘reasons not to change’. How often do we actually consider our body – really sit down and think, hmmm…what would body want?
Let’s take just a quick peek into the body’s world…
How would it be if you worked 24 hours a day and NEVER EVER had a day off?
What if that 24 hour a day j0b was as a refuse/garbage handler and you NEVER EVER got to shower or have a good scrub in the tub?
And what if in these unreasonable conditions, you were expected to smile, be happy, look (and smell) impeccable at all times…and if you failed at that standard you were ridiculed, disowned and hidden away under layers of shame?
Cleansing is an internal bath.
Cleansing is your health !nsurance.
Cleansing is a spa treatment for your body and your well-being.
Cleansing is reasonable maintenance for a body that is in use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Food, any food, leaves residue. . .
- white foods (potato, sugar, dairy, rice, flour, table salt)
– junk foods
— fast foods
—- processed foods
——— eating foods to which we are allergic
———- overlapping meals (eating again before the previous meal has fully digested)
———– eating late at night
———— living/working in polluted conditions
These above foods and habits do, of course, leave a more sticky and toxic residue than fresh organic fruits, veggies, nuts, seaweeds, peace, compassion and fun exercise. However, it remains true that food, most any food, leaves waste that over time clogs the body and limits its ability to feel good, look good, and to thrive.
What does your colon look like?
According to statistics, apparently at least 70% of us
don’t look like the image on the left.
My husband Zack and I just finished a 7-day cleanse.
We’ve both done our fair share of cleansing – drank nothing but juice for weeks at a time, liver/gallbladder stone clearing, short but sweet water fasts, numerous colonics, master cleanser – and I gotta say that in my opinion, this 7 day cleanse is the BEST thing going for safe, quick, magical results that you can see with your own eyes!
The humbly named ‘7-day cleanse’ is featured in Bernard Jensen’s book: Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management. He outlines all the ingredients necessary if you want to put it together yourself rather than investing in a pre-made kit from Colema. Price wise, I’m not sure which option is cheaper. I’ve done it both ways, with great results.
Basically the cleanse consists of 4 elements:
7 day solid food fast (we chose to add fresh veggie juice twice a day)
Supplements including green food, beet juice, vitamin C, and supportive herbs
Bowel-care items like psyllium and bentonite
Daily colon cleansing with enemas, colonics, and/or use of a colema board
What kind of results can you expect,
(especially if you use a strainer in the toilet to c@tch a better view)?
Whoa, gross! What?! Ewww! That’s Ridiculous!
No way…nope. Not me. Impossible. Really?
Here is a thorough description of what the dickens those photos are depicting:
”The intestines can store a vast amount of partially digested, putrefying matter (as well as drugs and other toxic chemicals) – for decades even. Some intestines, when autopsied,… were distended to a diameter of 12 inches with only a pencil-thin channel through which the feces could move.
That … was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus mixed with fecal matter, bizarrely resembling hardened blackish-green truck tire rubber or an old piece of dried rawhide. I call this mucoid plaque. This mucoid plaque, when it is removed during an intensive colon cleanse, often shows ropelike twists, striations, overlaps, folds, creases – the shape and texture of the intestinal wall. … In our clinical experience of monitoring thousands of intensive colon cleanse programs over the last 14 years, most people pass a staggering amount of this strange substance.
Over time, the mucoid plaque grows thicker, firmer, and more widespread – colonizing, as it were, the tenn!s court–sized [wow] interior of the intestines. The plaque slows down intestinal action, both waste excret!on and nutrient absorption. It can harbor pathogens, including bacteria and parasites, which actually hide underneath the plaque; it may block the normal outflow of lymph and mucin drainage. It binds toxins to itself and contributes to bowel toxicity, slowly emitting toxins into the bloodstream. Finally, plaque creates a friendly environment for disease, in some cases for colon c@ncer and gastric carcinomas.
…When the intestines are ill, you will be ill.”
Richard Anderson, from his book Cleanse and Purify Thyself
I have been on a 100% raw food d!et for eight years. Did I release this kind of junk? You betcha! And I clapped and cheered with every flush! My husband Zack has been transitioning into raw the last 2.5 years, eating about 95% raw. He chose to do every-other-day colonics instead of daily enemas for this cleanse. Both he and the colon therapist were awed at the results. Looked just like the photos! With a combined digest!ve tract the size of a tennis court, I suppose there are quite a few places for years of junk to play hide-and-seek.
Matt Monarch is often heard repeating the phrase, “All disease begins in the colon.” Sounds to me that if your colon isn’t clean, you’ll never get well or stay well.
How often should you cleanse?
Best idea is to listen to your body.
When you feel sluggish, lacking inspiration, when food isn’t tasting good, when you find yourself unusually impatient or not handling stres-s well, or perhaps you have symptoms of body imbalance such as frequent headaches, achy body, or acne…these could be communications from your body that it needs a rest and a good “spa experience”, through cleansing.
Typically, it is a good idea to consider cleansing with every seas0n change, or even every six months. Remember, even though you might choose to experience 7 days of not eating solid food, you can still have one-thousand-seventy-four meals left to enjoy that year! And more love, light and health to look forward to and enjoy on top of that!
Whichever cleanse you choose, whether it be juicing, blended foods, raw food, eliminating your favorite junk foods for a while, the Rise and Shine four-week cleanse, OxyPowder, candida protocol, parasite eradication, or something else that sings to you in the moment… I encourage you to give Nature’s operating table a sh0t. Better out than in!
And, compliments of my husband, a f!nal question to leave you with:
Is there light at the end of your tunnel?
