Psyllium and Bentonite is one of the simplest and most effective ways to cleanse the digestive system.
Liquid Bentonite should be used...or powdered Bentonite should be hydrated to a semi-pourable yogurt consistency prior to using it. Mix 1 Tablespoon of liquid bentonite and 1 teaspoon of powdered psyllium (or 1 Tablespoon if using whole husk psyllium) with 8-10oz of water or diluted juice, shake and drink immediately. Follow this with another 8-10oz glass of water. This is in addition to daily water intake of half your body weight in ounces. Sufficient water is a key to success with this cleanse!
Psyllium and bentonite shakes should be taken at least one hour before or after taking any supplements, herbs, medications, etc.
Start with one shake a day and gradually increase as the body adjusts to the additional fiber. It may take 3-5 shakes a day and/or several weeks before you start passing mucoid plaque. Continue taking the shakes as long as mucoid plaque is being eliminated for up to 6 months. Additional cleanses may be necessary in order to thoroughly cleanse the digestive system and can be performed for a few months at a time. Each cleanse should be followed with the use of a good-quality probiotic to replace beneficial bacteria. Maintenance cleanses should be done 2-4 times per year.
If constipation should occur while doing this cleanse, 1) increase daily water intake, 2) use enemas or colonics to clear out released material and get things moving again, and 3) cut back on the shakes or stop the cleanse until the bowels are moving regularly again.
This cleanse can also be performed while eating a normal diet. However, the 'cleaner' the diet is, the better the results will be. Reduce or eliminate meats, dairy, flours, sugars, processed foods, toxic exposures of all types...anything that is mucoid-forming. The diet should include lots of fresh vegetables and fruits (if tolerated), fresh juices, salads, soups, etc. Liquid minerals including trace minerals and electrolytes are beneficial for creating an alkaline state in the body and can improve the results of the cleanse.
Two good sources for colon cleansing products include Yerba Prima (Great Plaines Detox liquid bentonite) and Sonne's (#7 Detoxificant liquid bentonite)...both companies also carry psyllium.
Dry skin brushing is a great addition to a colon cleanse...it cleans the skin and also circulates and cleanses the lymph, aiding in the elimination process. A natural bristle sisal or tampico brush is used...brush all areas of the skin (except face and any sensitive areas) with long strokes towards the heart prior to shower or bath. The brush and skin are both dry when brushing is performed.
Psyllium and bentonite can help to eliminate parasites and candida, but each of these conditions requires additional measures to address it completely. A parasite cleanse can be performed with the Colon Cleanse or immediately after. Liver/gallbladder cleansing is also beneficial following a thorough colon cleansing.
Above all else...pay close attention to how your body responds and honor what it needs!
