I have found that that shakes sort of act as a magnet, and pull out more toxins from the colon than the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush)
I've done the cleanse one time before without the shakes, and it was great-

After eliminating "but pee" only for 3 days- on Day 4, I decided to try the shakes-
Every day after, I have eliminated "ropes" -
I think either way is fine, so long as you are having the BM's...
but, I definitely recommend the shakes-
(I'm on Day 10 today, woo-hoo!)
