enhance your detox
Add a Cleanse
Toxins building up in your system can cause many different health symptoms, these toxins also slow down your GI track and can cause compaction. Choosing the right cleanse for you can be overwhelming, there are so many companies making products that claim to release these toxins and many different diets that you can follow. When cleansing it's important to understand that any good diet cleanse will encourage toxins to flush from your organs to your digestive tract for elimination, in doing so they can block the colon and leak back into your system causing what we call re-toxification, so it is very important that we keep the colon moving during a cleanse. Colon Hydrotherapy is the most effective way to eliminate toxins from your colon by gently removing the compaction build up and hydrating the colon wall so that the cells can heal. Based on the person, Joanna will create a Colon Hydrotherapy and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy plan to coincide with your diet cleanse so that you achieve the most from your dietary efforts and receive huge improvement in your digestion and elimination. When releasing our colons we signal our organs to release further, thereby making our diet cleanse even more powerful and effective.
By the end of your cleanse you can:
- Lose those sugar cravings and extra pounds
- Elevate your mood through the balancing of your horomones
- Improve symptoms of menopause
- See a huge improvement with any yeast/candida issues as they will have be starved by the diet and flushed from the colonics
- Enjoy more energy, better mood and feel GREAT
Types of Cleanses
This is a powerful cleanse. Having three treatments over three days means that you are assured of cleaning the entire colon. Not only will you gently flush all of the toxins in your colon, but once they start to release, all of the organs in your body will start to do the same. In fact, if you are doing any type of diet or herbal cleanse that encourages organs to release, it will send the flushed toxins to your digestive tract. If your colon is not releasing effectively, the toxins can build up further in your colon. We take toxins into our system on a daily basis through food, medication, pollution, and chemicals on our skin, and once they are in your digestive system, if they build up on the colon wall they can leak through into your blood stream and go anywhere within your body. Therefore cleaning your colon can be an extremely powerful cleanse, allowing toxins to finally leave your body. We suggest not eating and drinking for two hours before your treatment in addition to avoiding gluten, dairy and other toxins such as alcohol, caffeine, and fried food during the three day treatment.
This takes the cleanse to a deeper level. On the evening of your third treatment of the 3 series cleanse, you will drink a liver, gall bladder flush. The next day you will come back for a fourth session to make sure that all of the bile and gall stones have left your system. Colon hydrotherapy, in conjunction with the flush, allows the liver and gall bladder to release without obstruction so the bile and stones completely leave the body. This protocol is far more natural and does not require the use of laxatives that can damage the colon wall. There is a slight diet modification - no animal products, gluten, dairy or fats for a short period before you start your treatments - and there are supplements to take - Malic Acid (a fruit acid) that helps to soften and break down gall stones, Oxy Powder (all natural magnesium supplement) that helps to loosen and release any impaction in your colon, and dandelion tea, which supports healthy liver function. Also over the three days of treatments you will start to switch from solid food to liquid so that we clear your small and large intestines in preparation for the flush.
This is a two-week diet cleanse that encourages your organs to release and helps prep your body for the liver and gallbladder flush. It includes a 'Greens Plus' breakfast drink to boost your nutrition, a salad for lunch, and miso or vegetable broth with steamed vegetables for dinner. The diet changes slightly on the tenth day, as that evening you will drink your liver gall bladder flush, and on days 11 through 14 you can begin to re-introduce protein and healthy grains so that we gently take you off the cleanse. This cleanse is really three cleanses in one with the alkaline diet, liver gall bladder flush and most importantly the four treatments of Colon Hydrotherapy. However, if you wish it is fine to do this cleanse without doing the liver flush.
Sugar Free Cleanse with Colon Hydrotherapy
This is a 3 week cleanse designed to help balance your hormones, remove yeast/candida infections, loose sugar cravings, loose unwanted weight and achieve amazing results with your digestion. Your diet plan with involve eating clean, no processed food, no sugar items including all items that turn to sugar in your system. Instead, lots of great veggies, organic meats and fish, pulses such as lentils, soups, and salads.
Juice cleansing is really powerful, it gives your body a huge burst of good healthy nutrients while also causing a deep detoxing effect. You will feel more energy and clarity and although you may miss chewing your food, you will be surprised that you really won't be hungry as you body gets concentrated nutrition from your juice. There is a reason why juice cleansing is so popular and that is because it works! I suggest a minimum of 3 days, 5 or 7 days will give you a much better result, if you are committed enough, try 10 days. As with all diet cleansing your body will flush all those released toxins to your GI tract and so it is imperative to cleanse your colon while juicing, that way those pesky toxins will leave your body for good so you will also feel 10 times better and stronger throughout your cleanse. Toxins that are not released during a diet or herbal cleanse can leak into your bloodstream and go right back to those organs that you worked so hard to release, make the most of your diet cleanse and flush that colon! A minimum of 3 Colon Hydrotherapy sessions is recommended with a juice cleanse.Please note:Diet cleansing can be hard and feeling the effects of those toxins releasing from your system is not easy. If you have any concerns please consult with your doctor before starting your cleanse and if you are experiencing negative affects its important to speak up. As the toxins release from your organs they head to your GI track for release, these same toxins slow down your GI track and if the colon gets blocked they will not be releasing from your system, be conscious of this as this is the first sign of re – toxifying that weakens your immune system. Colon Hydrotherapy keeps the colon moving so those toxins release for good.
Written by Cathy Shea.Our liver is the largest internal organ and has over 300 functions that science has documented. It is my opinion that there are many other jobs as yet undiscovered that this organ manages. It is important to note that one of the major functions is to help metabolize sugar as well as keep the hormones in balance. Endocrine function affects al other functions of the body. It is of vital importance to cleanse the liver regularly to enhance these activities.Think of our liver as a large filter. The blood is sent there for filtration and processing from all over the body. Then it is delivered to our heart for the major circulation. If the liver is weak or full of toxins, then the body will feel week and toxic. There are many books and articles that extol the virtues of liver cleansing. Most of them are quite harsh and require extreme measures. We've experimented over the years and found the following protocol to be the least aggressive and most effective. Remember to take a few days off so that you may rest while doing a liver cleanse. The body needs this extra relaxation to rejuvenate and repair at the cellular level.DO NOT ATTEMPT TO STOP YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS MEDICATIONS TO PERFORM THIS CLEANSE. YOU MAY NOT BE A CANDIDATE FOR THIS PROCEDURE IF YOU TAKE MORE THAN ONE DAILY MEDICATION. ASK YOUR DOCTOR.Be brave, make sure you have the support of a coach like your colon hydrotherapist and take things SLOWLY!!STEP ONE:Begin by tapering off all caffeine, alcohol, vitamin supplements, over the counter medications and animal products. Increase your consumption of fresh organic vegetables & fruits and enjoy whole GRAINS instead of bread & pasta. We have great success eating a big portion of fresh papaya daily as this is a laxative food. This may take a week or two and must be done slowly so that the body has a chance to adapt to these changes. During this time, take 800 mg. of MALIC ACID in capsule form twice per day after eating. This helps thin the bile in the liver and promote its flow by opening the bile ducts. It also helps to take 2 OXY-POWDER capsules at night before bed to increase the bowel movement activity. Drink a minimum of 2- 3 quarts of purified water per day at room temperature, no cold foods or liquids. Drink a minimum of 2 cups of roasted dandelion tea per day at room temp or warm. If you need a sweetener, add STEVIA drops one at a time until you reach the desired taste for yourself. Avoid over eating.STEP TWO:Once you feel ready to proceed and you have done the suggested eliminations in STEP ONE, arrange to have 3colon hydrotherapytreatments. It's best to have one per day for three consecutive days. If your bowel has been extremely sluggish and you feel the need to continue, go ahead and have 3 more in a row. It is imperative that the bowel is open so that the liver may have a path of release before proceeding. If necessary, increase the dosage of OXY-POWDER by adding 2 in the morning to your dosage of 2 at night.STEP THREE:As you are having thecolon hydrotherapy, reduce your solid food intake gradually until you are able to manage liquids only. It's wonderful to drink fresh vegetable juices, especially dandelion green with spinach & carrot or beet. Sip on your dandelion tea & fresh water, make a warm miso broth, especially if you feel a chill. You may snack on sprouts if you feel lightheaded or dizzy. This will give you an energy boost as you chew them to a liquid before swallowing. Warm pureed soups are also good as long as they are from vegetable sources and you may add miso broth to give it a slight salty flavor. Miso also adds friendly bacteria that will enhance the cleansing process. If you feel really hungry, place one tablespoon of organic, ground flax seed in a glass of warm water and drink it down directly. This will fill your belly as it expands to reduce hunger sensations.STEP FOUR:Now that you have prepared your body for the liver cleanse, you may proceed to the actual work of moving bile and gall stones out of your liver and gall bladder. Arrange for a few days off so you may rest during the next phase of your cleanse. Our goal now is to allow the stones to pass easily out of the body and yes, you will be able to see them in your toilet since they float. They look like small green peas, some larger than others.Stop eating and drinking by 2pm so you do not interfere with the cleansing products. You may drink water. Take 2 OXY-POWDER at 6pm with 8-16 oz. of purified water. Prepare the other items you will need:1 cup extra virgin olive oil1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice1 cup pineapple juice or fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (your choice)Put 1 straw in each cup since you will sip through it to drink these.At 9pm, sip one half portion from each cup then lay down on your right side immediately. Wait and rest until you burp. Once you have burped, sip the last half portion from each cup and go to bed. Lay on your right side with your right knee up as much as possible during the night. If you awaken and need to use the bathroom, return to this position. Put your thoughts and prayers on your liver and imagine the liquids doing the work to open and cleanse this system. If you feel nauseous during the night, rub your belly with essential oil of lavender. It will help this feeling pass quickly and relax you to go back to sleep.STEP FIVE:When you awaken, take 2 OXY-POWDER and have anothercolon hydrotherapycleanse or give yourself an enema. Watch for the green pellets! Go back to bed and rest if you feel the need. Light exercises like Yoga are perfect during these days as they are contemplative and do not require a lot of energy. When you feel hungry, make yourself a whole grain cereal like millet, buckwheat or basmati rice. Eat it plain with a sprinkle of sea salt and a teaspoon of organic, ground flax seed. Slowly begin to introduce steamed vegetables within the next one or two days. Go very slowly, listen and trust your body as it tells you what it wants and needs. Stay home and rest, walk in nature, swim in the sea if you live nearby and reflect on how good you are being to yourself!!! CONGRATULATIONS!As you release the stones, watch for different colors & shapes. Some are bright colored, shiny and are in different shades of green. This green indicates the bile from the liver. During my recent cleanse, I released hundreds of them during my colon hydrotherapy sessions. I also noticed many more in the toilet bowl for several days after I drank the “concoction.” Some were smaller than peas and some were as large as a kidney bean. When I fished them out of the toilet using a plastic picnic fork, they were soft like putty thanks to the malic acid. I've read that the lighter colored stones may sink since they contain heavier toxins and calcifications. Many of the old texts talk about how this cleanse is of great help to arthritis, bursitis, back pain, allergies and other health problems. This requires diligence and possibly doing this cleanse 3 or 4 times per year over a period of years. The theory is that with each successive cleanse, the liver increases function. The teachings say that once you no longer see any stones, you may back off to once or twice per year for maintenance. Naturally, it is vital to eliminate all trans fats and increase consumption of good fats found in avocado, coconut, nuts seeds, olive oil, etc.Please remember that if you are suffering from any acute illness, this is cleanse is not a good idea. This may further weaken you. It is also vital to do the colon cleansing as suggested. If gallstones are not removed via the colon, one may experience symptoms such as infection, abdominal discomfort or headache. Therefore, following this protocol and adding more colon cleansing is of great importance. If you have a history of constipation and a stagnant colon, follow the guidelines of your professional colon hydrotherapist. It may be wise to have 2 or 3 series of colonics prior to embarking on this journey.If you do not see stones, then repeat the cleanse in about a month and this time add peppermint oil capsules (2 capsules twice per day) and drink a quart of chamomile tea to help dissolve calcifications. We also suggest using the Edgar Cayce remedy of castor oil pack. These are widely available in health food stores along with specific instructions. Drinking the juice of one fresh squeezed lemon first thing every morning will also help stimulate bile. It can be chased down with a large glass of warm water.In rare cases some people feel nausea and vomit during the night of the cleanse. I believe one night of discomfort is worth the years of benefit that this cleanse provides. In contrast, recovery from gall bladder surgery may take weeks or months. Each individual must decide if this cleanse is something they may want to try. My first experience was a bit uncomfortable and now that I've done this several times, I realize that I had not cleared my colon properly prior to the liver cleanse. I can say that when I perform this cleanse, I realize many benefits including increased energy, less joint pain and improved sleep. I've heard that this cleanse is safe for those without a gall bladder.
Sugar has been proven to be the cause of so many illnesses, cancer and diabetes, yeast/candida, obesity, hormone imbalance, difficult menopause and menstruation, prostate and pancreatitis are just a few of the diseases and symptoms that have been linked to sugar. Obviously natural sugar is best and artificial sweeteners should always be avoided however it is not just the amount of consumed sugar or the type and quality that we have to be concerned about. So many things we eat turn into sugar in our digestive tract. We may be conscious to avoid sweets and sugary drinks but how much of what you are eating is hurting you without your knowledge?
This is a 3 week cleanse that will get you back on track, eating clean while enjoying a full and healthy selection of foods that will boost your nutritional intake. It really is amazing how when you cut out the foods that do you little good not only do you start to feel so much stronger and healthier but you will realize how many delicious options are available and you will enjoy them so much that you wont miss those unhealthy snacks half as much as you think you may.
You wont go hungry on this cleanse yet you will shed those extra pounds and your sugar cravings will diminish. Your energy will improve, as will your digestion and mood. The goal of this cleanse is to eat clean, you want lots of good green veg and lean protein, for example, steamed broccoli and grilled chicken breast or salmon. Do not starve your self just eat lots of the right things.
Any Diet or herbal cleanse will encourage your organs to flush toxins they are holding to your digestive system for release, if your digestive system is not able to release these then they will sit in your gut until they leak back into your blood stream and go right back to your organs. Therefore the key to cleansing is releasing the bowel, if your colon is clear not only are you releasing the toxins in your gut but also this will then encourage your organs to let go of their toxins further.
What does all this mean? It means that combining a diet or herbal cleanse withColon Hydrotherapy is the most effective way to lower your toxicity level which will then in turn allow your cells to heal and the body to have optimal function.

The romance of unhealthy foods is powerful, as evidenced by the 65 percent of Americans who struggle daily with being overweight and obese. But it is essential to break the cycle of dependence on saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and excess caffeine and alcohol. Research going back decades has shown us that we can not only be healthier, but actually reverse even severe chronic disease by changing to a plant-based diet: vegan best, but I'll settle for primarily plant-based.
In addition to breaking the cycle of cravings of foods that undermine your health, just three days of a juice cleanse can do so much more! Here are more than a dozen significant health enhancements you can obtain with the 3-day juice, more so if you can do 5 or 7 days or even 10 days for optimal results.
Note: First rule, keep it organic. Otherwise you are ingesting many of the same pesticide, herbicide and antibiotic residues the body is trying to clear out.
1)Rest the stomach.
For the tens of millions of people who are on acid-suppressing drugs -- and for older folks who often don't produce enough stomach acid -- making the stomach work less to extract nutrients can be a huge benefit. Juices require less of the stomach's digestive processing (churning, acid and pepsin). Remember to gently chew the juices to add oral enzymes to further ease digestion.
2) Rest and repair the gut.
Toxic foods (including saturated fats, refined carbs, foods with additives, pesticides and allergenic foods), taking medications (such as antibiotics or antacids), and even stress can impair the intestine's functioning. There can easily be an imbalance in the gut micro biome (flora and fauna balance) as well as actual breaks in the intestinal barrier ("leaky gut") -- allowing substances into our bodies that should not get a free pass. Consuming a phytonutrient-dense rainbow plant-based juice diet allows food to be assimilated quickly through the intestine -- consuming less energy, while the toxin-free, nutrient-dense food helps to repair the gut itself.
3) Rest the liver.
The liver is our main detoxifying organ. Every molecule of food that is absorbed through the intestinal wall (fiber is not absorbed) moves into the liver for detoxification and preparation before being allowed to enter the rest of the body. Problem is, there are too many toxins for most of our livers to handle -- with many passing unchecked into the general circulation to wreak havoc in distant cells. An organic juice cleanse rests the liver's overload.
4) Reduce your appetite.
Juicing doesn't really shrink the stomach -- although it feels like it does. Juicing eliminates the habit of comfort eating, and makes you feel satiated with less food than usual. This provides a big psychological boost to help get over the hurdle of changing habits.
5) Ease food decision-making.
Juicing focuses on consuming fresh whole food produce every few hours -- and reduces the enslavement of thinking constantly about what the next meal is going to be. Not only do we feel sated, but realize we are no longer slaves to our addictions with (often very harmful) foods.
6) Eliminate harmful foods.
The juice cleanse eliminates dairy, wheat, gluten and fermented foods from the diet (as well as coffee and alcohol). In my experience, the majority of patients over 40 are relatively insensitive to wheat. Being off this -- and other common trigger foods for a period -- then reintroducing them can help define what foods are causing our body problems.
7) Floods our body with super nutrition.
Being on an all-produce diet gives us not only the vitamins and minerals but the all-important phytonutrients that are powerhouses for the clean-up and healing process. Juices are by nature raw foods -- and retain nutrients that would be destroyed by cooking, including some B vitamins and especially (digestive and anti-inflammatory) enzymes.
8) Lose weight.
As you are feeling better and having more energy, you also naturally lose weight. Some of this is water bloat, but also some is fat. A juice cleanse (three days minimum) is a great way to jump start a diet. It not only helps control appetite and cravings, but is naturally lower in calories, while supplying the body with probably more concentrated beneficial energizing and healing nutrients than it has seen before.
9) Improve energy.
After the first day's adjustment period (mostly missing crunching, and any coffee/alcohol cessation symptoms), most people begin to feel much more energy and clarity (by consuming only fresh juices) than they ever did with frequent caffeine drinks.
10) Rehydrate the body.
Most of my new patients consume inadequate fluids, often having diuretics such as coffee or tea as their main beverages. Drinking sufficient fluids (6-8 glasses/day) makes the body function more efficiently increases energy (often successfully removing the afternoon blahs/brain fog), and helps insure proper elimination of toxins.
11) Reduce physical problems.
You begin to feel generally better, not just with your energy, but with many chronic symptoms such as headaches, rashes, general aches, congested sinuses and chest, and bloating/cramping/gas. Too much of the time our body is fighting off the things we do to it (especially with food -- but also with lack of sleep, inactivity and stress). Take a break, rest the body (and mind) and flood it with nutrients.
12) Allow maximum detoxification.
To optimally support all phases of the body's natural detox process, you need a very broad range of plant-supplied nutrients like anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories. By providing the body with super-nutrient dense foods juicing allows the body to have more of the resources it needs to support the phases of detoxification, and even to begin to help remove the cumulative toxins stored in the body -- 147 industrial chemicals on average in Americans' bloodstreams with many present in newborns.
13) Heal our cells.
Switching to an organic plant-based diet allows cells to work optimally to re-establish efficient internal messaging and manufacturing processes, allowing the mitochondria to create energy without having to fight off a plethora of free radicals and inflammation, and reducing some of the impediments to proper DNA functioning.
(Caveat: Juicing is not for everyone. Check with your health care provider first, especially people who are pregnant, underweight, diabetic, have unstable heart disease or low blood pressure, or who have life-threatening health challenges.)
It is important that you remember that when your organs release they send the toxins to your GI tract for exit out of your system. The average person holds 10lbs of compacted fecal matter, when cleansing that amount can rise as toxins naturally slow down your digestive system, so it is crucial that your bowels keep moving whilst you are cleansing to make sure those toxins are completely released. If not, they can leak back into your blood stream and go back to the organs that you worked so hard to release.
When juicing start with a minimum of a 3 series Colon Hydrotherapy cleanse to clear your entire bowel and prepare your organs to start to release. Cleansing your colon will signal your other organs to release so it will add momentum to your juice cleanse. Throughout your cleanse I encourage you to pay close attention to your bowel movements, you should be going a minimum of 3 times a day and you should be releasing 12” bowel movements.
To receive optimal results from your juice cleanse I encourage further Colon Hydrotherapy treatments through out and ending your cleanse so that you can release as many toxins as your body is ready to.
While Juicing watch your energy levels, vegetable broth and smoothies can help when feeling low but if needed eat some raw vegetables to build your strength and avocado will help with protein levels, just make sure you really chew well. It is important not to push yourself too hard, pay attention to how you feel and if you need to eat a real meal, do so.

Many of the old texts talk about how the liver and gall bladder flush is of great help to arthritis, bursitis, back pain, allergies and other health problems. This requires diligence and possibly doing the flush 3 or 4 times per year over a period of years. The theory is that with each successive cleanse, the liver increases function.

Naturally, it is vital to eliminate all trans fats and increase consumption of good fats found in avocado, cocoanut, nuts seeds, olive oil, etc.

Begin cutting out all the items listed: You will need to avoid all foods that contain sugar so this means avoiding all artificialandnatural sugar items as well as all processed foods. EAT CLEAN, this means if what you are about to eat does not grow out of the ground just how you see it, then you don’t want it, so nothing processed. All fruit and certain veg that are high in sugar should be avoided so no tomato, parsnip, beets, squash, yams, sweet potatoes or carrots as they have a high sugar content.
Foods that turn to sugar in your system are to be especially avoided so no grains, no flour items, no fried food, no breads or pasta, cereal or granola, and no corn or potatoes.
Good fats are good on this cleanse however you should avoid all types of cow milk and goat diary products that have sugar, I.E. yogurt, kefir and milk including, coconut, soy, almond and rice as they are all high in sugar. Finally avoid pre made sauces and dressings as most contain sugar. Alcohol is full of sugar so sorry no booze for a while.
The first week if you are really struggling you may have half a cup of berries a day, by the second week your cravings should have gone and will no longer need these.
So, What Can You Eat?
All green vegetables, sautéed/ steamed/ roasted - I love steamed broccoli and roasted brussel sprouts, lots of Kale and other collard greens
Salads with lots of greens, avocado, hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, sprouts, cucumber, zucchini etc.
Organic chicken, wild fish and other proteins such as farm fresh grain fed chicken eggs are all good on this cleanse however red meat should be avoided.
Beans, lentils and other pulses and legumes are great.
Spices and seasonings are allowed so use them to make some great flavors.
Make homemade soups such as split pea, lentil, and miso or make your own broth and add vegetables and maybe fish or chicken.
Make lettuce wraps and fill with vegies and some protein like sautéed onion and mushroom, grilled salmon and avocado.
Curry, you can use water with all the seasonings and add your vegetables and protein.
Omelets are great and you could also make sushi with cauliflower rice instead of rice.
Snack on raw nuts such as raw almonds, also sprouts and celery.
As your organs start to release to your colon it is key that you keep things moving and do not allow the toxins to build in your digestive tract so I recommend acolon hydrotherapysession each week through the cleanse. I also recommend Oxy Powder all natural magnesium colon cleanser to encourage your elimination and Pharmaceutical grade pro biotic to balance your flora. Drink lots of water every day, we need half of our body weight in once at sea level, more at altitude and with exercise. Detoxing is hard on the body and being hydrated is important to flush those toxins.
By the end of the 3 weeks you should be feeling energized, lighter, your digestion should be greatly improved and bloating gone. Your hormones should be more balanced and your mood, skin and hair will be great. If suffering with a yeast or candida infection I recommend continuing this cleanse for a further 3 weeks.
As you begin introducing foods back in your diet try to take the concept of this cleanse with you for the future. Too much sugar in your diet can be detrimental to your health so keep it in check, stay with natural sugar from fruit and avoid artificial sweeteners.
Diet cleansing can be hard and feeling the effects of those toxins releasing from your system is not easy. If you have any concerns please consult with your doctor before starting your cleanse and if you are experiencing negative affects its important to speak up. As the toxins release from your organs they head to your GI track for release, these same toxins slow down your GI track and if the colon gets blocked they will not be releasing from your system, be conscious of this as this is the first sign of re – toxifying that weakens your immune system. Colon Hydrotherapy keeps the colon moving so those toxins release for good.
