Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: “Should I do a cleanse, and what products should I use?”
Answer: I think hardcore colon cleanses are something you should do only a few times in a lifetime. (They are invasive. Plan on a need to rebuild a healthy colonization of intestinal flora with a high-raw diet and lots of probiotic for a couple of months afterward.) I recommend instead participating in the GSG Detox Program which will clean out the toxic sludge that has built up in your digestive tract for decades, as well as chemicals accumulated in your liver, kidneys, skin, and lymphatic system. This program is a very thorough cleans, but not as invasive as some of the other colon cleanses available.
Also, on a pretty regular basis, I take a day or two to let my body rest if I’ve not eaten as well as I normally do. If I’m feeling a little off, a little low-energy. If I’ve gained a few pounds. If I’m traveling.
