Your First Cleanse: What to Expect.
We also recommend gentle colon hydrotherapy for anyone embarking on a cleanse: before, during, and after–as needed. Colon hydrotherapy administered by a well trained and skilled therapist is a powerful healing tool. When combined with lots of hydration , probiotics, and a plant-centered diet, it can do wonders for rehabilitating a troubled gut, and will also ease detoxification symptoms during a cleanse. Please feel free to contact our coaching team for support and recommendations , and you can also check out this directory of well-vetted colon hydrotherapists here .
First Cleanse is strong enough to be effective, yet gentle enough that it will not cause ‘cleansing reactions’ which may occur when performing a more advanced cleanse. Cleansing reactions include mild headaches, nausea, and flu like symptoms that occur if you detoxify too quickly.
The Clean Program’s cleansing tools are designed to support your body’s natural detoxification functions. Modern life is rife with pollution, environmental stressors, and poor quality foods, all of which contribute to impaired digestion (an all-too-common complaint), and potential toxic overload for our bodies. Giving your body’s detoxification processes some support on an ongoing and/or periodic basis is smart.
The best advice we can give you is to stick with it. Allow the cravings to pass, and stay with your commitment to the program. Remember why you chose to cleanse and adopt better dietary habits in the first place: you deserve to experience excellent health. This is a lifestyle transition to a diet based in whole, natural foods, self-care, and habits that will keep you looking and feeling vibrant for years to come.
First Cleanse is a 15 day, two part herbal cleanse formulated specifically for the ‘first time’ or ‘sensitive’ cleanser. It is designed to gently stimulate the cleansing and detoxification process of the body’s 7 channels of elimination: the liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, blood, skin, and lymphatic system.
Assess the state of your health, and get clear on your reasons, or your “why”, for committing to the cleanse program. Are you feeling sluggish and want to adopt a better diet and self-care habits, or are you struggling with more significant health problems? Prepare ahead of time, and get adequate support in place that will help you succeed. If you are healing from illness, you may need a good integrative or functional medicine doctor on your team.
