We asked our Facebook audience about what their diet should consist of when doing a cleanse or detox program. The responses were great.
Some of the advice included:
- Lots of organic fruits and veggies
- Lots of fiber and antioxidants to remove toxins
- No junk food, sugar or caffeine
- Lots of greens
- Healthy fats like coconut oil, cod liver oil and ghee
- Green juices
- Lots of water
- All Cell Detox
- Coconut water for hydration

“Depends on the cleanse. For the Liver, it should include Lemon (oil) and peppermint oil and chlorophyll. The Master Cleanse could be good for this – do it in the spring when the liver and gall bladder are most active. For the intestines, Psyllium and bentonite are good to use. The Tiao He Cleanse is excellent but I recommend starting slowly. Some of my patients have found it a little to strong for them.
“Also, do not forget the Para Cleanse – good to add to any of these. Once you establish what kind of cleanse you are going to do, you have to look at your vitality level. If it is very strong and you do not have hypoglycemia or other blood sugar issues, a water fast is great. Next level up would be cleansing and juicing. I generally avoid raw foods. They sound good at first (nutrients not cooked out) but the cellulose membranes on the cell walls are hard to break down and leave the nutrients trapped and not absorbable. Blanching does not over cook them and breaks the cell membrane.”

“Depending on the severity of the toxicity of your body… either a raw vegan diet, majority raw diet with cooked/soaked grains, a cooked vegan diet, a free rang vegetarian diet, or grass fed beef with lots of fruits and vegetables. All depends on where YOU personally are and your blood type.”
