If you are on medication, can you fast and do the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
We recommend if you intend to fast on liquids while doing the Colon Cleansing Kit™, you get an OK from your healthcare practitioner first; especially if you are on life saving medicines. For more details, see below.
If you are taking various supplements or medications now, should you stop them?
As a general rule of thumb, we recommend that you NOT take any other herbs, supplements, vitamins, mineral, OTC or recreational drugs while you are cleansing.
Colon cleansing is an opportunity for the body to clean house; the least added to your diet, the more effective the cleansing. If, however, you feel intuitively you need to keep taking them, please follow your intuition; your own personal guide for what’s best for you.*
If you are taking prescription drugs, it is better to wait until you have finished the course of your prescription before beginning your cleanse.
If your prescription is needed for an ongoing, daily basis, please continue as directed. Check the list below to see which drugs this program may affect.
Drugs that may interact with the Colon Cleansing Kit™:
- Anticoagulant Drugs
- Antihypertensive Drugs
- Antiplatelet Drugs
- Diuretic Drugs
- Heart Drugs
Note: It is possible to use the Kit with some of these medications, but your healthcare provider may need to adjust the dosage of your medication(s).
Any medications that you decide to continue to take while cleansing always need to be taken two hours apart from any formula of the Kit, so as to avoid absorption or interaction with the drug.
Because of the schedule followed during the BEST and BETTER Options of cleansing, there are only two windows of opportunity to take your medications two hours apart from the Toxin Absorber™ and Digestive Stimulator™: early morning or late evening. If you need to take your medications at other times, you will need to choose the GOOD Option of the Colon Cleansing Kit™, where Toxin Absorber™/Digestive Stimulator™ are only taken once a day.
Those who take anticoagulants, antiplatelets or aspirin, may still cleanse by choosing the Peppermint Colon Cleansing Kit™ which only contains Ginger root in a very low spice dose which has not been found to increase blood thinning.
Consult Cautions and Safety to learn what herb may affect what medication. Discontinue if adverse effects occur.
