About the 365 Complete Body Cleanse
The 365 Complete Body Cleanse is a two-week program designed to support your gastrointestinal, circulation and lymph systems, clear out the toxins and keep your body in balance. This cleanse includes the Cleansing Fiber Blend, Herbal Regularity Laxative Formula and Milk Thistle Liver Cleanse, all of which work synergistically.
If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately.
For two weeks, the 365 Complete Body Cleanse calls for taking the three various formulas as prescribed with one 8-ounce glass of water, drinking plenty of water throughout the day, eating a well-balanced diet and doing light exercise such as yoga.
As an important part of the daily diet, fiber binds itself to toxins and helps eliminate them, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels and aids in weight loss. The Cleansing Fiber Blend contains psyllium, which lubricates the intestines for easier elimination. Other ingredients include oat bran to regulate the digestive flow, and guar gum, pectin and marshmallow root to help soften the stool.
The prescription: for two weeks, four Cleansing Fiber Blend capsules in the morning and four capsules before going to bed.
The Herbal Regularity Laxative formula loosens accumulated substances in the intestines and contains neither cascara nor senna, two common natural laxatives that may be overly stimulating. This formula’s ingredients include magnesium hydroxide to stimulate peristalsis; a proprietary mucilage blend of slippery elm bark, marshmallow root and fenugreek seeds to soften the stool; burdock root extract to support the liver, kidneys, intestines and circulation; a proprietary soothing blend of peppermint leaf, fennel seed and ginger extracts to relax and tone intestinal muscles; and red clover to promote healthy digestive, cardiovascular and lymph systems.
The prescription: for the first week, three Herbal Regularity Laxative Formula tablets before going to bed; for the second week, two tablets before bedtime.
Part of the liver’s job is to detoxify the body, produce bile and synthesize protein and glucose, all of which aid in digestion. The Milk Thistle Liver Cleanse contains a synergized blend of extracts—milk thistle, artichoke, dandelion and licorice—that support bile production and flow and help prevent damage from free radicals. Milk thistle’s most bioactive compound, silymarin, works to remove bacteria and other unhealthy matter from the liver and gall bladder.
The prescription: for the first week, one Milk Thistle Liver Cleanse capsule at night; for the second week, one capsule in the morning and two at night.
Whole Foods, the distributor of the cleanse, recommends consulting a physician before starting a cleansing program or if any problem develops with bowel movement. This cleanse is not recommended for anyone who is pregnant or nursing or who has abdominal pain, nausea or kidney disease.
