I'm looking for a good 1 week detox. I'm never impressed with the 1 day drinks like Qcarb. Has anyone tried "the cleaner" ?
I tried raw seriously puked from 3rd step... That's the first time ever the taste/smell of something has made me gag... That says a lot.
Anyways any feedback on detoxes anyone has tried would be helpful thanks!

Don't know what 3rd step is. While you're interested in detoxification have you looked into liver/gallbladder cleansing?

you should look at spirulina and chlorella.
those are two awesome supps that detox. might take longer than a week, but it will be worth it to knock down a container
plus chlorella and spirulina actually have hundreds if not thousands of articles and studies done showing its effectiveness
For me, the action IS the juice.

I kno wat u recommended is great for daily use. I also take goldenseal and milk thistle and fiber supplements to help with a daily cleansing. But I still find that since I'm not a perfect eater that it's nice to detox twice a year. I do notice the difference in how I feel and how my body runs.
So i kinda am looking for a good detox that kinda covers everything... Colon, lung, kidney, liver, and parasites...
And I also take probiotic supplements to replenish any of the good bacteria that may have been flushed from my system in the process

Juice fast for 7-10 days. By juice I'm talking about juice fresh fruit n veggies. No caffeine no salt. Just juiced fruits n veggies. All these other supplement cleansers detoxers are whack. The answer is fruits veggies n herbs.
What the juice fast does is pretty much reboot ur whole system so I think this what ur looking for. You may feel like crap first couple days but that's normal your detoxing after all. After 7-10 days you'll feel like new person. More clear minded, less stressed just an over all great feeling of well being.
I really recommend juicing once day after detox as well.

Hmmmmm I may try this... Need a juicer tho... My blender is horrible! I should just get rid of it (but it's my roomies)Originally Posted by hugry4more
What fruits/veggies/herbs do u recommend? Also how many "shakes" a day? Lastly what about protein intake for the day? (I do have some elite vanilla protein powder)
I'm hypoglycemic so I really have I b careful with any type of diet/fasting or my blood sugar may abruptly crash n I black out.
02-29-2012, 05:01 PM
Yea you'd wanna buy a juicer. Blending leaves the fiber in it which is more work for you digestive system. As far as protein I wouldn't have any. It will mess up the fast. No dairy, meat, sugar nothing but fruits n veggies. As far a recipes just Google it. There are so many out there. Every time o juice i honestly just free style it. But something simple would be 1 apple 1 orange, half lemon, half bunch of kale, 3 celery stalks, 1/4 cuccomber. And that will make you good bit of juice.Also you can have as much as you want. So I would worry bout ur sugar being low. Best wishes mate.Originally Posted by JesstheIbex

Thanks! I'll look for a juicer. Ooooo kale never had kale juice before. I hope my grocery has everything I want tho in the veggie/greens department. I'm kinda in a small country town :/Originally Posted by hugry4more

Bought myself a juicer! I think I may need a mini fridge for all the fruits n veggies I may need (unless I plan on shopping every 2-3 days)
Hey anyone ever read the juice master's books? Wondering if they r worth buying...

This is when I wish I had a kitchen n fridge stocked like on a food network show... "now let me just go to the fridge and grab some kale and cucumbers... Mixed berries... Ah n here they are!" : P

I know you just got a juicer, but if it's not a breville keep that name in mind for your next one. awesome.
03-08-2012, 02:40 PM
I actually had gotten a ninja which said it had juicing capabilities.... Which was cool. Blender. Food processor. And juicer... Then I opened it up... No juicing applicator... Which was crap. I don't want smoothies with all the pulp : P so I got a jack lalanne. Which has great reviews so we shall see... But I'll def keep that name in mind next. R they expensive?Originally Posted by staple

I've tried a one month detox with the help of green smoothies.. it gives me the feeling of goodness.. cleanses the liver and giving my skin looks so young..
03-09-2012, 04:27 PM
I finally got juicer today from ups excited to make a carrot, kale, apple, & cucumber juice with maybe some Italian parsley...
My liver def needs a good detox. I don't have the best liver after being seriously sick when I was 19.
I just hope with this juice diet/detox for 7-10 days I'll get enough protein and carbs so I won't he sugar crashes n randomly black out. Joys of wing hypoglycemic. Ur fine one sex. Next sec sugar plummets : P

Oh btw I had done a week detox wit the cleaner. And besides the very obvious colon cleansing... I do not feel any different. I've done detoxes before and with colon cleansing I kno the obvious is expected but with the cleaner... It was sudden intense G.I. Pains. Def had to drink more water (more than my typical gallon a day) because I felt dehydrated.
Anyways... Great ingredients. And if ur looking for a thorough colon cleaner and u don't mind taking 4 capsules 2x a day this is for u. But otherwise not a good overall cleanser...
Definitely will stick to my juice cleansing. Gonna take a break and try n replenish my body cuz I don't feel like my body has gotten much out of my diet the last week :S
03-17-2012, 09:25 AM
Detox doesn't do much. Things like colon cleansing are just complete bogus. There is some sense to drinking vegetable and fruit juices once in a while though.
Check this article please:
Detox Diets and Cleansing Diets: Do They Work?
03-17-2012, 11:27 AM
read ur article. I must agree... some "detox" are bogus... that chinese foot pad thing... even if it does have some detoxing properties I doubt it has anything significant that can be pulled from ur capillaries in ur skin... or the one day drink detoxes... besides having the runs for a day... not sure it really makes a diff in ur body. or the lemonade detox or whatever that's called... yeah I dont know how anyone can survive on that for 7-10 days since u are depriving ur body of practically EVERYTHING it needs.
as for colon cleansing... I do agree there are something we eat that our body cannot fully break down and sometimes gets stuck in our G.I. track. for example... TABLETS! I void taking supplements in tablet form. many are heat compressed to fit as much of the supplement into 1 tablet, especially since people dont like taking more than one tablet. i know not everyone, but when I was in a supplement store... people were always like "2 tablets a day for a multivitamin... no way. im just going to go with the one a day" which not only doesnt have the amount ur body really needs, but also ur body wont be able to absorb everything in the one tablet because it cannot break it down... then u get shards of tablets stuck in ur GI track sometimes... not a pleasant image. and obviously this doesnt simply apply to tablets that we stick in our mouth.
also Im a big believer in herbal supplements for improving organ function. as for juice detox... yes obviously if ur not gettin the calories, carbs, or protein, or fat in ur daily diet u will lose weight... but my goal is not to lose weight with a detox. just help get rid of any unwanted "substances" if you will to help my body run more smoothly.
03-17-2012, 11:47 AM
You seem to be a lot more rational than most detox people i have come across. So keep up the skeptical thinking!
I think we all thing that things get stuck in your GI and there are these unwanted substances. But it is not true.
I want you to read these two articles:

Detoxification is real, and its not pointless. To understand why we need to detox u need to first understand a couple things. Ill try to make this as short as I can.
First humans aren't design to be carnivores. When u rid ur body of excess waste that's been built up from years and years if the western diet.. high fat, high sodium, high diary, high simple refined carbs with natural methods u restart ur body persay. Allowing it to opporate as its designed. The pancreas is then not over worked and stressed and can do what is does when its not processing meats and diary through ur intestinal tract. It can fight disease! Or bodies are really an amazing thing. And food is also amazing. When u eat the right foods ur body will function properly.
U have to ask urself why do people who we consider indigenous, who have been living the same way thousands of years with no "medical" of scientific advancments not get sick like we do?
Ill leave u with one last thought. There was a study done in China, that was documented over 20 years maybe more ill have to look it up. It documents cancer mortality rates. The studies proved that the areas where a plant based diet had a significant and substantial lower cancer rate.
So is a detox with natural fruits and vegetables necessary yes!

03-17-2012, 02:41 PM
Couldn't find any your post. but to say we are ment to eat meat, and to say the China study doesn't prove anything that just sounds not to be a dbag but single minded. When u combined the results from the China study with, the lab test showing that cancer growth increases with diary proteins and decreases with no diary and a plant based diet how can anything u say have a valid point. The facts all right I'm front on us. We just don't want it to be the truth.
Not even mentioned the countless documented cures of disease just by switching to plant based diet organic diet.
Medical science can't even cure the common cold. Yet people how are considered to just be "hippie" naturalist are curing cancer with food and the gerson therapy..

How do u explain the labs then , showing cancer growth going up and down in direct correlation with animal based vs plant based diets. And with out getting into all the science data I mean its it obvious. Ingenious people with veggie based diets not sick. Everyone else sick LOL. Im not one to personally believe all animal products are directly bad for u. But that the portion should be much much smaller. And if what ur saying is that the study is bogus how do explain the gerson theroy... it works!! I never heard someone cure cancer with an animal based diet LOL.

Did I open a can of worms? Lol
I do have one brief thing to say... Humans are omnivores but if u look at studies showing the breakdown of our digestive track. i.e. our long g.i. Track is designed for being an herbivore. Yet we do have incisors like carnivores and out flat molars like herbivores. We can eat meat but our bodies run more smoothly if we have more of a vegetarian style diet.
As for vegans. I kno plenty that are anything but skin n bone. Vegans do have to be more meticulous with what they eat and what they add to their food to ensure that they get the nutrients their bodies need.
As for the correlational study... Was this proteins simply from plants and animal? Or having protein thru consumption of meat vs vegetables... If its this then is it thru consumption of organic meat vs organic veggies protein in correlation to cancer. Bc correlational studies are not cause n effect n don't take in other factors associated with those variables. (i.e. vegetables with pesticides... Pesticides increasing chance of having gene mutations and causing cancer later in life)
03-17-2012, 05:27 PM
What I was trying to say is I don't trust your explanation of the scientific data. There are labs done that show correlation between cancer n meat n dairy. Illcpost it when I find it. You make it seem like u have a point but u really don't. You can't come up with why the gersons theroy works. Do u understand exactly what organic fruits n veggies do when they are consumed?Originally Posted by JudoJosh
Like I said I'm not a vegan advocate or saying meat is bad for you. Just saying there are some things we can learn. Don't get urself all worked up bro were all on the same team hear LOL..
03-17-2012, 05:32 PM
Ill have to look into that. I agree with you. I believe the study shows cancer mortality rates and diet. As far as is it organic Idk. And that is a factor. It may be safe to say yes because the where the studies were conducted these people were really farming for themselves to eat for to sell in huge amounts.Originally Posted by JesstheIbex

On the subject of health benefits. Basing your diet on eating fruits might have quite opposite effect. At least according to this study:
Long-term fructose consumption accelerates glycation and several age-related variables in male rats.
Levi B, et al. Show all
J Nutr. 1998 Sep;128(9):1442-9.
Department of Food Engineering and Biotechnology, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.
Abstract Fructose intake has increased steadily during the past two decades. Fructose, like other reducing sugars, can react with proteins through the Maillard reaction (glycation), which may account for several complications of diabetes mellitus and accelerating aging. In this study, we evaluated the effect of fructose intake on some age-related variables. Rats were fed for 1 y a commercial nonpurified diet, and had free access to water or 250 g/L solutions of fructose, glucose or sucrose. Early glycation products were evaluated by blood glycated hemoglobin and fructosamine concentrations. Lipid peroxidation was estimated by urine thiobarbituric reactive substances. Skin collagen crosslinking was evaluated by solubilization in natural salt or diluted acetic acid solutions, and by the ratio between beta- and alpha-collagen chains. Advanced glycation end products were evaluated by collagen-linked fluorescence in bones. The ratio between type-III and type-I collagens served as an aging variable and was measured in denatured skin collagen. The tested sugars had no effect on plasma glucose concentrations. Blood fructose, cholesterol, fructosamine and glycated hemoglobin levels, and urine lipid peroxidation products were significantly higher in fructose-fed rats compared with the other sugar-fed and control rats. Acid-soluble collagen and the type-III to type-I ratio were significantly lower, whereas insoluble collagen, the beta to alpha ratio and collagen-bound fluorescence at 335/385 nm (excitation/emission) were significantly higher in fructose-fed rats than in the other groups. The data suggest that long-term fructose consumption induces adverse effects on aging; further studies are required to clarify the precise role of fructose in the aging process.
