Many years ago I went on a cleansing detox for six weeks. I did it several times over the years. I don't do this now but my Cura Romana regime has a detox effect. I mentioned this in my last blog, and by special request, here is the recipe I used to use, we called it ... Green Glop.
1 teaspoon bentonite clay powder (or 1 tablespoon liquid bentonite clay)
Aloe Vera gel ( buy 90% aloe Vera, gel not juice, take the dose recommended, or about 1 tablespoon.)
Liquid Chlorophyll, 1 teaspoon. I like the mint flavored one.
Apple juice, about 1/2-1 cup (make up to a large glass of fluid)
rounded teaspoon psyllium husk
tablet of cascara (only 1 per day)
Mix everything together except the last two ingredients.
Stir in the psyllium briskly & drink immediately.
Follow with a glass of water and the cascara.
Start with one dose in the evening, before dinner. For the next two days, have a dose morning and evening, but omit the cascara after the morning dose, have just 1 tablet a day. After that, have the green glop three times a day. Modify your eating, concentrating on delicious fresh foods, but don't make a rod for your own back.
At first you are advised never to be too far from a toilet. This effect diminishes after a little while.
Make sure you have a lot of water while on this colon cleanse.
This cleanse and an anti candida diet rid me of candida and established the habit of having a BM after every meal- which is apparently optimal- & which has continued ever since.
DH & I felt so good on it that every time I went on a green glop cleanse, DH would join me OF HIS OWN FREE WILL!
And you can't say better than that!
Warning: the psyllium affects the absorption of medications, so take an hour before or after your medications. If you need to have medications with food, have the glop mid morning, mid afternoon, and before bed.
