Summary

Cleansing the Body, Dr. David K. Hill.  There are a number of cleanses associated with healthy detoxification of the body and essential oils.  Dr. David Hill in September of 2010 gave a presentation, with the introduction of a cleansing product from (...) named Detoxifying Blend, on cleansing protocols and how they work in the body.  A summary of that presentation is on the tab Science and Research above.

There are many cleanses that different folks have advocated.  We will list here some of the more often mentioned and what their benefits are.  Under the Procedures tab we will include some experiences people have had.

Quotable Quotes about cleanses:

"We are much better off taking a daily approach, and being supportive, to the cleansing organs that are designed to detoxify our bodies."  Dr. David K. Hill

"The route of cleansing: Clear the bowels, Clean the blood/lymph, Rebuild.  Look to Essential Oils, Herbs, and Diet."  Julia

"The Liver is the Foundation of Health"  A saying of Chinese medicine

There are many cleanses that different folks have advocated.  We will list here some of the more often mentioned and what their benefits are.  Under the Procedures tab we will include some experiences people have had.

 

Nutritional Cleanses

A daily, gentle detoxification to provide support to the body organs that provide natural detoxification.

(...) Detoxifying Blend with essential oils.

Detoxifying Blend Detoxification Complex, a combination of whole food extracts to provide support for the body's cleansing organs, the liver, kidneys, bowels, and skin.  Coupled with essential oils for additional support for the liver.

·    2 tablets daily of Detoxifying Blend Detoxification Complex with 5 drops of Detoxifying Blend in a capsule daily.

·    Detoxifying Blend can be replaced with 4 drops each Geranium, Rosemary, Grapefruit, and Clove in a capsule.

·    Time period: can be taken indefinitely on a daily basis or as a periodic cleanse for 2 weeks every three months.

 

Lemon liver detoxification

For some this is part of their life for increased energy, emotional stability, and pain.

·    1 tablespoon of organic Lemon juice

·    1 drop each of Lemon and Peppermint essential oils

·    1 drop Coriander essential oils if necessary for addictions

·    2-4 ounces of purified water

·    Daily, drink first thing in the morning

·    Time period: indefinite

 

(...) Metabolic Blend

Dr. David Hill suggests the blend Metabolic Blend as a metabolic blend can help the body eliminate apidose cells the body has formed to encapulate dangerous toxins in the body.

·    1-2 drops Metabolic Blend per 8 ounces of water

·    2 to 4 glasses per day

·    Time period: indefinite

Isolated Cleanses

A more aggressive, time period specific cleanse that may address
one area of the body.

Herxheimer reactions

Since Isolated Cleanses are oft time an aggressive approach to cleansing body organs they can release massive quantities of toxins that have been within the body, especially from those that have had health problems.  These released toxins can cause uncomfortable reactions as they exit the body through the bowels or skin.  Some may experience digestive disruption, others rashes or other skin disorders.  The general advice is to slow the cleanse by reducing or spacing the cleansing agents to find a comfortable level, but to continue the cleanse.  Also consider a period of preparation with a nutritional cleanse as described above.

 

(...) GI Cleansing Formula

GI Cleansing Formula is a combination of essential oils and caprylic acid for cleansing the gastro intestinal tract.  It includes Oregano, Melaleuca, Lemon, Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Thyme essential oils.

·    3 GI Cleansing Formula capsules daily for 10 days.  Best taken with meals.  If uncomfortable reactions reduce the number of daily capsules.

·    Follow with Probiotic Defense Formula, a probiotic, to build healthy digestive functions. 3 capsules per day, with meals, for 5 days.

·    Wait 15 days, repeat. Do this 3 times. (repeat 15 day protocol for 3 months)

·    Daily, you can drink over a period of time

·    Time period: 14 days

 

The Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet - Stanley Burroughs (contributed by Robert James)

The Master Cleanser is a way to cleanse the body of toxins and reduce the cravings we experience from eating junk food. The cleanse involves drinking only Lemonade made from fresh Lemon juice, ... B/Medium maple syrup, water and Cayenne Pepper. No solid food can be eaten for the duration of the cleanse. The Lemonade is best taken at room temperature. The master cleanse is technically not a "fast" and proponents say it is more gentle on the body because it does contain some essential vitamins and minerals. According to proponents it is recommended to be on the cleanse for a minimum of ten days, but it is not uncommon for people to stay on the cleanse for longer periods of time, even as long as 45 days. A good indicator of when you should end the cleanse is when the coating on your tongue clears up and your tongue is nice and pink in the morning. This indicates that your body has cleared out most toxins. But you must judge for yourself when to end the diet.  For me, personally, I experience a high influx of energy and a feeling of euphoria after about the 2nd or 3rd week.

The following quantities of each ingredient are required (some adjustment may be required for non-average sized people, large or small.) These amounts are for all the Lemonade you need for 1 day that is 2 quarts.

·    14 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

·    14 Tablespoons (... B) Maple Syrup

·    1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper – or to taste (as much as you can stand)

·    2 quarts of water

·    Drink at room temperature.

·    10 to 45 days are mentioned

Since there is no intake of solid food, special precautions are taken to avoid constipation. Laxative tea, which is optional, is taken every night, and in the morning a quick drink of 32 ounces of lukewarm sea salt water (about 1heaping  tablespoon or sea salt).  This passes will pass through the digestive system extremely quickly, be near a bathroom, you will need it usually within 30-60 minutes. Many individuals don't require the laxative tea as long as the salt water has the desired effect. (and you can take it.  It's not fun drinkng warm salt water)

It is essential to go off of the cleanse slowly. The lack of solid foods for such long periods requires careful breaking, as gut flora need to re-develop and mucus linings re-build. This usually involves drinking "full strength" juices for a day or two, while slowly adding in soups, then fruit, vegetables and nuts before resuming a regular diet. I would definitly use the Probiotic Defense Formula probiotics during the cleanse to help re-establish a healthy intestinal culture.  Some individuals have returned to their healthy diet the following day after stopping the program without any problems, but this is rare and not recommended especially for first timers.

Others also recommend coupling the Master Cleanse with Metabolic Blend or Grapefruit water (1 to 2 drops in 8 ounces of water) and/or the Massage Blend Technique.  Also topical application of essential oils directly to the area of the liver with warm compresses (Helichrysum, etc.).

 

The Lawton Foot Technique - Dr. Sue Lawton (contributed by Pat Leavitt)

This is particularly good for pain as well as pulling toxins from the body.  Have on hand the following: 2 large 9x13 glass Pyrex baking pans and a pair of boot socks  

·    Place the pans in the oven, with the setting on bake at 180 degrees  

·    Sit your friend in a comfortable chair

·    Apply topically the oils of your choosing with a carrier for easy of spreading. Cover all of both feet

·    Citrus oils for detoxification

·    Frankincense or other antibiotic oils such as Protective Blend, Melissa depending on their specific needs.  

·    Place the heavy boot socks on each foot. If you do not have boot sock just put on double sport socks.  

·    Place the covered feet in the warmed Pyrex dishes and cover each foot with a warm moist towel, followed by a dry towel.  

·    While their feet are simmering, let them rest until the heat has left (usually about 30 minutes) or you can use those same oils and do a Massage Blend Hand Massage, or using the oils in the Massage BlendTechnique kit.

When you remove the feet from the pans, put on a regular pair of socks.   Don't be surprised at how well they will feel when you have completed this procedure.

Experiences and Testimonials of others

GI Cleansing Formula

Sheen - I started the GI Cleansing Formula 4 days ago. I feel sick. I have chills, feel run down, and my stomach is really cramping. I don't have a fever. Is this a normal reaction? My husband is taking it as well and has been run down and coughing. We don't feel like we have colds. If this is a common reaction I'd like to be able to let people know in advance what they might experience. What do you think?

Pat - I went through the cleanse without so much as a twinge of discomfort. My friend could not leave her house for a week! I don't know why exactly except that she had some major cleansing. Because of that she reduced her intake and increased her water with Lemon to help the cleanse. She still held with the 10 days and had some GX left over. She immediately went from her 10 day GX cleanse to the five day probiotic. She waited ten days after completed the protocol and started the cleanse again. She was able to take the three GX as recommended and complete the 10 day cycle followed by the Probiotic Defense Formula without any problems. She loves the way she feels, her arthritis  pain is 80% better. I will do the cleanse on a quarterly basis and I know it will be the major source of my wellness regiment.

Kathy - I also had really no problems taking the GI Cleansing Formula or the Oregano, Lemon, and Melaleuca Candida cleanse before the GI Cleansing Formula came out. I put a lot of Oregano in the capsules too but a friend of mine did the capsules and she was so sick for weeks, I told her to cut down to 2 capsules a day, I guess it depends on how toxic we. I have done several different kinds of cleanses over the past 5 years, maybe that has something to do with it too - or our bodies are just different.  I would suggest starting off slow - taking one capsule a day for a day or so and see how they react then start with 2 a day for a day or so and then 3 a day.  Make sure they are drinking plenty of water - 1 gallon a day or close to it.

 

Miki - I have started the LLW supplements about 5 months ago, and GI Cleansing Formula last month. This is my second month on GI Cleansing Formula and it just dawned on me, should I be on both LLW & GI Cleansing Formula at the same time? Should I take a rest from LLW while on GI Cleansing Formula? … Also, has anyone experienced the annoying unique "smell" that comes from within, like the smell that comes from "burping" while on GI Cleansing Formula?

Loryjean - The LLWP is for nourishment, although it also has cleansing properties. It is important to keep your body nourished while cleansing. In fact, if you decide to eat lightly while on the GI Cleansing Formula, the LLWP will help keep you going without weakness and fatigue issues. If you are having any discomfort I would be using Digestive Blend on your tummy or feet morning and night. Make sure you are also consuming plenty of pure water, and cut back or eliminate sugars and processed foods at least while on the GI Cleansing Formula and Probiotic Defense Formula.

Ramona - I started on Monday with the GI Cleansing Formula and I've been taking the LLW faithfully as well.  I haven't noticed anything unusual, except I'm already starting to feel better!  I have more energy and everything feels better.  I have also cut out everything refined.  My diet is basically eggs, broiled chicken, vegetables, light cheeses, beans, and that's about it.

Pat - Taking the LLW and GI Cleansing Formula is perfectly fine. You need the nourishment even while cleansing.

Miki - Thank you for your input.  I've consciously started drinking more water (with Lemon) and it's helping me with the discomfort, I think. I have less "yukky" feeling after taking the GX.  Thank you!

 

Ellen – I have a friend that needs to do a Candida cleanse, is it less expensive to use the GI Cleansing Formula product or to blend our own essential oils an do it that way?:

Rex - If we assume the optimum protocol is: 5 drops Melaleuca @ $19, 5 drops Lemon @ 10, and 3 drops Oregano @ $24 (at (...) wholesale prices) and assuming 275 drops per bottle.  Taken 2 a day for 2 weeks, rest 2 weeks, then take 1 per day for 2 weeks the cost would be. :

The cost per capsule would be =19x5/275 + 10x5/275 + 24x3/275 =  $ 0.79

The total cost for regiment would be (28 + 14)*.79 = $33.14 (this does not include the cost of the capsules)

Vs. GI Cleansing Formula   @    $26 (and this has more oils that the Melaleuca, Lemon, and Oregano above and it is a lot more convenient)

Looks like the GI Cleansing Formula is the better value!

 

GI Cleansing Formula Herxheimer reactions

Donna - I have a friend taking GI Cleansing Formula and she says it makes her nauseated sometimes, she is only taking 1 capsule a day. What should I tell her?

Energy4life - Take the GI Cleansing Formula on a full stomach! It may make her feel sick at first; this is the die-off of bad organisms. Take it slow at first, but persist. Make sure she takes the LLW supplement.


CluffClan - I have been using the GI Cleansing Formula now for two days, and I feel so bloated and crampy!  Is that normal?

Pat - Yes, people react differently to a cleanse. Your condition is one I have heard about often, it is the detoxification causing the discomfort. Start taking just two GI Cleansing Formula capsules a day and drink plenty of water with Lemon in it. If you stop now you will never get a good cleanse. Don't forget, Lots Of Water.

 

Lemon liver detoxification

Irene - Does anyone know how long you should do the Lemon liver detoxification for?

Julie Ann - Forever.   We have been on it for years and we can tell when we skip a day or so.  We experience increased energy, sense of wellbeing, no more upper back, between the shoulder blade, pain.  

Susan - Can you detail out for me just what is the Lemon liver detoxification program?  And--do you do this along with LLW supplements, GI Cleansing Formula and taking Metabolic Blend 2-3 times per day?

Julie Ann - This is a part of our lives around my household.  Every single day.  Nothing changes along with the LLW, GX, PB or anything else we do.  It just comes first.

 

Detox Bath

Kari - I've read that you can take detoxification baths with Epsom Salts.  I put 1 cup Epsom salts mixed with 4 drops Lavender, 4 drops Geranium and 4 drops Lemongrass.  I put my water as hot as I could stand it. I could only handle sitting in the tub for 30 minutes.  Did I do it right?  My feet and ankles have swelled up and I have a terrible headache.  I'm thinking I may have done too much? Has anyone had experience with this?

Connie - Don't worry. You did it right—you are just detoxing. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water, which should help. Also take some Lemon water or Grapefruit water internally - or try the Metabolic Blend.

Pat – A bath is a light detox, the Epson salts pulls impurities and helps with inflammation. You do have to be careful, especially with elderly folks and children as this bath with Epson salts can pull electrolytes from the body. Drink lots of water with Lemon or Metabolic Blend to make sure you stay hydrated. A really great general detoxification would be our GI Cleansing Formula followed immediately by our Probiotic Defense Formula.   

 

Master Cleanse

Shauna - I'm new to alternative medicine and was interested in doing the master cleanse.  But in my search I've been unable to find any instructions.  Could someone tell me the process involved in the master cleanse?

Rob – Here is a copy of The Master Cleanse (see the Summary tab)

The Master Cleanser (aka Master Cleanse or Lemonade diet) is a way to cleanse the body of toxins and reduce the cravings we experience from eating junk food. The cleanse involves ... A good indicator of when you should end the cleanse is when the coating on your tongue clears up and your tongue is nice and pink in the morning. This indicates that your body has cleared out most toxins. But you must judge for yourself when to end the diet.  For me, personally, I experience a high influx of energy and a feeling of euphoria after about the 2nd or 3rd week.

Diet and Nutritional complements to essential oils

 

What Science & Research are saying

Cleansing the body, Dr. David Hill

A summary of a presentation by Dr. David Hill made September of 2010 at the introduction of the (...) product Detoxifying Blend.

Toxic ChemicalsThe modern world is a world where we are exposed to many toxic chemicals every day in our every day lives.

 

 

 

Signs of Toxic StressMany today suffer from toxic stress.  I personally talk to so many folks suffering from poor energy, mood swings, or struggling with being over weight.

 

 

 

Nutritional CycleAs part of the Nutrition Cycle that (...) is now emphasizing is the concept of Organ Support.  The liver, kidneys, lungs, colon, and skin are vital organs in our body that are protective filters to protect us from the toxic chemicals we are exposed to.

 

 

Types of CleanseThere are two types of cleanses we can do to detoxify our bodies.  A nutritional cleanse is a daily approach to support the organs associated with cleansing the body.  The key aspects are that it is a daily maintenance, it provides core support, it is gentle and non-irritating while it helps to relieve stress that comes in these organs of cleansing.  The nutritional cleanse supports the cleansing organs with a daily regiment that helps them to function more appropriately and helps them deal with the toxic stress.  The isolated cleanse is very different.  It is typically stressful to the body and time specific, that is 10 days or two weeks.  Because it is aggressive there may be a Herxheimer reaction, that is, since we are liberating massive amounts of toxicity that is not going through the body’s normal process the body needs to find a way to deal with it.

We are much better off taking a daily approach, and being supportive, to the cleansing organs that are designed to detoxify our bodies.

Protect OurselvesTo protect ourselves from toxic stress we should 1) Reduce exposure, 2) Nutritionally cleanse, and 3) provide Organ Support.

 

 

 

LiverLiver.  The liver is the primary organ for cleansing in the body and you need to provide it with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and enzymes or the liver cannot complete the process of cleansing.  The LLV supplements provide antioxidants and vitamins and minerals in a bio available form for the body.  TerraZyme provide the necessary enzymes. 

KidneysKidneys.  Our normal blood PH should be between 7.2 and 7.6.  When the kidney is under toxic stress acid build up in the blood and if there are wide swings in the PH it can be very dangerous to our health.  Therefore, daily support is very beneficial to our wellbeing.   [Dr. Hill pointed out that this demonstrates the interactions that can happen in the body.   

Kidney SupportIf the blood becomes too acidic (ph too high) the body will try to neutralize this and one way is to leach calcium from bone that may lead to osteoporosis.]  Support for the kidneys comes from Essential Fatty Acids found in xEOMega and from the essential oils, Geranium, Rosemary, Lemon, Grapefruit, and Lemongrass.

 

IntestinesBowels.   Inflammation of the bowels with diseases like Colonitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Chrohn’s Disease is the biggest issue of the digestive tract.  We need to offer ongoing support of our digestive tract with enzyme support (TerraZyme), GI Cleansing Formula, Probiotic Defense Formula and Digestive Blend. 

 

SkinSkin.   The skin is spoken of as the last organ of choice.  To understand this we need to understand the body’s overall process of elimination.  Skin Glands

First, the skin itself has two methods of elimination.  first, the sweat glands that eliminate water-soluble toxins thus reducing the load on the kidneys.  Second, the oil ducts that can, if necessary, be use to eliminate the fat-soluble toxins.  When this does happen it will generally cause uncomfortable itching and/or a rash.

 

Now, knowing how the skin can process toxins look at the overall process beginning with the liver. 

Elimination ProcessToxins normally go to the liver where they are processed first by Phase 1, called conversion, where the toxin is converted into a water-soluble molecule.  This is followed with Phase 2, called conjugation, and then the water-soluble molecule is transported to the kidney and then eliminated through the normal channel of the bladder.  This is the normal process, if for some reason the kidney cannot process the water-soluble molecules they are passed to the skin for elimination through the sweat glands.  If the liver cannot process a toxin to the kidney it is then eliminated thru the colon as a fat-soluble molecule. And if the colon cannot process a fat-soluble molecule through the normal channel it then passes it to the skin for elimination through the oil ducts.  This is the model of elimination.

Slim & SassyIn addition to this the body also has the ability to encapsulate toxins in fat in what is called apidose cells which, in turn, the body can eliminate.  This a reason the essential oil blend Metabolic Blend is important because it is a powerful metabolic blend that can help the body eliminate these cells and get rid of toxicity this way.

 

ZendocrineDaily, on-going support of each of these organs is provided in a nutritional sense by Detoxifying Blend.  This is a gentle daily detoxification.  It has a specific combination of whole food extracts chosen to support each organ in its role of eliminating toxicity within the body.  The ingredients and the organs they help are listed in the accompanying graphic. Zendocrine ComponentsAmong these ingredients I have highlighted Burdock Root.  Burdock Root has a lot of very valuable components including a fiber called inuline.  Inuline actually changes the way we digest sugars so that Burdock Root does more than just provide targeted support for our organs.  It also has some value in the metabolic sense and how our bodies react to sugars and insulin, which helps to reduce inflammation. Detoxifying Blend should be taken two times a day, morning and evening.  This, coupled with the essential oils below, gives a well-rounded protocol that offers daily, targeted support for each of these organs.

Liver SupportWith all this said let me just say that I found many years ago from Chinese Medicine that The Liver is the Foundation of Health.  In my recent travels to Asian countries I have been reminded of this truth.  For gentle additional support for the liver I recommend, along with Detoxifying Blend, daily taking a capsule with 4 drops each of Geranium, Rosemary, Grapefruit, and Clove.  These may be applied topically for an equal benefit to the liver.
