Can I do a colon cleanse while nursing?

Yes, you may cleanse while nursing, however, we would not recommend anything harsh, anything that involves fasting or a complete disruption of your system. If you are fasting you may be lacking certain nutrients which mean baby is not getting those nutrients as well. We would not recommend anything stronger than our simple basic 5-day starter cleanse if you choose to cleanse while nursing. It’s gentle on your system and no fasting is required.
