14 Day Detox with Shaklee

"There is no natural death. All deaths that come from so-called natural causes are merely the end point of progressive acid saturation. Many people go so far as to consider that sickness and disease are just a ‘cross' or an element, which God gave them to bear here on this earth. However, if they would take care of their body and cleanse their colon and intestines, their problems would be pretty much eliminated and they could eliminate their 'cross' by proper diet, proper exercise, and in general, proper living." --Dr. George C. Crile, head of the Crile Clinic in Cleveland and one of the world's great surgeons.

Taking the time to cleanse and purify your body periodically is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Dr. Shaklee would refrain from eating solid foods one day a week to help keep his body clean.

In today’s modern world, over 5 billion pounds of chemical pollutants are released into the environment that we eat, breathe and live in yearly. And, much of the food supply contains dyes, preservatives, pesticide residues, nitrates, hydrogenated oils and other agents’ known to have carcinogenic potential. So now more than ever it’s even more crucial to cleanse and detox your body occasionally.

Over time, the buildup of toxins in the body can lead to serious health problems including:

    Frequent headaches
    Joint pain
    Skin eruptions
    Bloating & Gas
    Halitosis (bad breath)
    Recurrent infections
    Immune deficiency

Any or All may indicate a need for detoxification.

Phase 1
Order Supplements and prepare for 14 Day Cleanse

Shaklee offers several state-of-the-art cleanse and detox products to help you rid your body of toxic chemicals, rejuvenate your liver, cleanse your colon, build up your intestinal microflora and much more.

Liver Cleanser
The liver is the largest internal organ in the body and plays a crucial role in maintaining normal metabolism and detoxifying the body. Shaklee’s Liver DTX Complex provides nutritional support for healthy liver function. This product has a proprietary blend of six botanical ingredients with antioxidant and bile flow enhancing properties, which combine to protect and stimulate the body’s natural ability to maintain healthy liver cells.

  4. dandelion
  5. tumeric
  6. artichoke
 These six, time-tested and safe ingredients provide unparalleled support for maintaining a healthy liver*, which is crucial to your body’s ability to rid itself of toxins.

Colon Cleanser

The healthy body contains trillions of friendly microorganisms. A vast majority live in the colon and are referred to as intestinal floral or microflora. At least 400 kinds of microorganisms are found in the gastrointestinal tract; this amounts to about three pounds of bacteria in the intestines at all times.

Their most important role is keeping undesirable bacteria in check.

Common Causes of Bacteria Imbalance
The most common cause of imbalance between good and bad bacteria is the use of antibiotics.
  •   age
  • poor diet
  • low fiber intake
  • oral contraceptives
  • medications such as aspirin and corticosteroids
  • stress
  • high sugar intake
To effectively cleanse your colon, Shaklee offers Optiflora a breakthrough colon cleanse system that has no equal. Only Shaklee guarantees live delivery of 500 million beneficial microflora to the intestines! Tests show that many of store bought brands do not make it live to your door, much less to your colon.

The Optiflora two-product system supplies both acidophilus and bifidus. The first product is a prebiotic that comes in powder form which makes for a pleasant-tasting drink mix and provides nutrients, which selectively feed the friendly bacteria. The second product—the probiotic is a unique patented, seamless capsule that will withstand the shipping and storing process and the acidic environment of the stomach, guaranteeing the delivery of 500 million live beneficial microflora to the intestines.

Using the patented Optiflora colon care system to build your microflora to optimum levels can help improve a host of conditions from a wide range of digestive discomforts like indigestion*, heart burn*, diarrhea*, constipation*, gas and stomach bloating*.

your entire being, creating a state of health and vitality.

No colon cleanse program would be complete without Dr. Shaklee’s famous
Herb-Lax formula. Originally formulated in 1917, Herb-Lax has been used effectively by millions of people over the years. It’s designed to encourage a mild cleansing action to aid the body’s natural process. Herb-Lax features a blend of 9 herbs, including senna leaf, which has been used for more than 3,000 years as a natural laxative.

The herbs used in Herb-Lax are not in any way related to the artificial chemical laxatives promoted on television. Those products often irritate the tissue and pull fluid into the bowels forcing it to eject its contents. Artificial laxatives like these can weaken the organs and may causes dependencies, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalance.

Instead, Herb-Lax naturally stimulates contraction of muscles with the colon. This allows for better removal of trapped waste and shortens the transit time, giving toxins less time to harm healthy colon tissues and be reabsorbed and circulated throughout the body. Herb-Lax can help improve regularity, reduce body odor*, clear acne*, relieve constipation, expel gas from the stomach and intestines, and normalizes the colon function while it nourishes the bowel.

Blood Cleanser
As far back as 3000 B.C., the Babylonians understood the versatile benefits of garlic. It was well accepted as a medicine for a wide range of applications, including respiratory tract infections, skin disorders, parasitic infections and as an antibiotic and antimicrobial agent.

Today, numerous scientific papers also report on garlic's ability to cleanse the blood and ameliorate heavy metal toxicity, especially against such neurotoxin metals as mercury and cadmium, while another papers described the use of garlic in the treatment of hypoglycemia, intestinal disorders and a wide variety of other medical conditions.

However, not all garlic supplements are the same. Most of the processing methods used today, including crushed garlic powders, garlic oil capsules and aged odorless extracts, reduce or eliminate the allicin content. Allicin is the major active component of garlic and is needed to deliver the many benefits of garlic.

Shaklee’s Garlic Complex utilizes a unique, gentle; temperature controlled drying process, which retains ALL the allicin. The garlic is cooled to a level that temporarily inactivates the enzyme that forms allicin, and it’s only activated when the supplement is digested, providing the maximum benefits of garlic.

Shaklee’s Garlic Complex also has a dual-odor control formulation. Garlic breath” is due to garlic odor from the stomach. Shaklee’s Garlic tablet doesn’t break down until it is past the stomach and into the small intestine. “In addition, it contains a sweet-smelling blend of spearmint and rosemary extract for effective odor control

Overall Body Cleanser

Alfalfa is Arabic for the “Father of All Foods”. The roots of this amazing herb grow very deep into the ground bringing up vital nutrients and trace minerals from deep within the earth. Alfalfa is known as a natural diuretic, body cleanser and detoxifier. It stimulates bile flow, and binds with heavy metals and removes them from your system. It also helps protect from radiation and helps control body odor.

Besides its highly beneficial attributes as a body cleanser and detoxifier, alfalfa also has many other benefits. According to David Mulvain, M.S. Nutrionist, alfalfa also aids in digestion, is anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic*, anti-bacterial. It helps aid in the healing of ulcers, gout, heel spurs, upset stomach, allergies and back disc repair. It even regulates blood sugar levels and helps lower cholesterol. It’s truly an amazing herb! Only the finest quality alfalfa is used in Shaklee’s Alfalfa supplement. Grown without pesticides, herbicides, or inorganic fertilizers, it provides the highest quality alfalfa available on the market today.

Phase 2

The 14-day plan progresses gradually. It begins with four full days of a modified macrobiotic diet, then moves into six days of fruit only, then comes back to a more regular eating plan for the last four. Throughout, we eliminate caffeine, alcohol, refined sugar, dairy, and artificial foods altogether. There are no strict guidelines as to how much or when to eat; use basic nutritional principles to determine that for yourself.

Days One - Four:

Your diet for these 4 days should consist of organic fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and chicken, or fish. Modify these suggestions to accommodate your tastes:

Upon Awakening: One large glass of hot purified Get Clean water with one half of a fresh lemon squeezed into it. You may add honey to sweeten if you wish. This tonic helps flush waste matter from your digestive tract and keeps your breath sweet.

Breakfast: Fresh fruit and freshly squeezed fruit juice, organic yogurt (if you eat dairy), chopped almonds to sprinkle in the yogurt or over sliced fruit, and as much herbal tea as you want. You can use a little honey for sweetener.

Lunch: One serving of protein (tofu, fish, or skinless chicken Breast), steamed, poached or baked with no oil, and one serving of a whole grain (like brown rice, couscous, wild rice). One serving is equivalent to about the size of your fist. You may also have as much fresh vegetables and salad as you would like. You can use vinegar and lemon with one teaspoon olive oil for dressing and natural seasonings as you wish. Make lunch your largest meal. But remember, less is more (you detox better!).

Snack: Any form of fresh fruit or vegetable.

Dinner: One serving of protein as at lunch and one serving of a whole grain and one serving of a vegetable or a salad. Give yourself some variety from lunch.

For dessert, you can either have fresh or baked fruit, or you can get creative and make naturally low-fat, whole grain, dairy-free desserts that you can get from any good vegan cookbook.

Supplements to Use:

  • One serving of Optiflora Prebiotic and Probiotic Complex
  • 1 DTX 
  • 5 Alfalfa 
  • 1 Fiber Bar
  • 1 DTX 
  • 5 Alfalfa 
  • 1 DTX 
  • 5 Alfalfa 
  • 2 Herb-Lax
  • 2 Garlic

Days Five - Eleven:
Here is when you enter your six-day fruit fast. It sounds hard, but after 4 days of already eating light, it won’t be as difficult as you think. You can have as much fresh, whole fruit or freshly squeezed juice as you want. Be creative! Instead of just eating an apple, or a pear, take the time to prepare a fruit salad that combines several kinds of fruit.
Here are a few suggestions:
  • Mash up a few bananas and freeze them to make banana ice-cream. Bake apples, using honey or cinnamon for flavoring.
  • Bake or poach pears and use honey or cider for sweetening.
  • Add cinnamon, vanilla flavoring and Shaklee protein (vanilla) to applesauce
  • Different fruit salads: berry salad (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries), tropical salad (pineapple, oranges, mango, banana so you have to sprinkle banana with a bit of lemon juice to keep it from browning), strawberry, kiwi, and grape salad.
Shaklee 180 Smoothee with Leucine
Add a Green Drink/smoothee these 6 days. Remember, avocados and tomatoes are fruits, so you can use them to make soups, salads, guacamole, and so on. You can add a little tomato salsa or apple cider vinegar for flavoring.

Supplements to Use:

  • 1serving of Optiflora Prebiotic and Probiotic Complex 
  • 2 DTX 
  • 8 Alfalfa

  • 10 Alfalfa 
  • 2-4 Herb-Lax (depends on each individual & how much your body can handle)
  • 1 serving of Optiflora Prebiotic and Probiotic Complex
  • 2 Garlic 
Days Eleven - Fourteen:

For the last four days of your cleanse, you will go back to what you ate on Days 1-4. However, it is very important that you remain conscious of what you are doing. Your system is cleaner and lighter than it was three days ago, so you will probably need less food than you think you do. Stay conscious and present to what your body needs.

In addition:
  • Exercise every day
  •  Get good sleep (7-9 hours). Your body is going through and energetic process and needs to rejuvenate.
  •  Do not deprive yourself of a meal or snack if you are hungry. Eating is necessary, natural and good for you. Your metabolism needs fuel. Don’t eat if you aren’t hungry, as this will defeat the purpose of becoming aware of your hunger patterns.
Supplements to Use:

  • One serving of Optiflora Prebiotic and Probiotic Complex 
  • 2 DTX 
  • 8 or more Alfalfa
  • 1-2 Herb-Lax
  • 1 Fiber Bar
  • 2 DTX 
  • 8 or more Alfalfa

  • 10 or more Alfalfa 
  • 2-4 Herb-Lax (depends on each individual & how much your body can handle)
  • 1 serving of Optiflora Prebiotic and Probiotic Complex
  • 2 Garlic

Ending the Fourteen Day Detox
At the end of the 14 days, do not break your detox fast foolishly. The minute some folks wake up on the 15th day they rush right out to have something that has been off-limits. This is the worst thing you could do to your system. Your intestines can’t take that kind of shock. One of the keys to fasting properly is knowing how to break it wisely! Do this detox two-three times a year, whenever you feel you have gone off track or just need to do a little internal clearing.

Phase 3

Add back the Green Smoothee. Do this for one week. Eat 3 meals and 2 snacks that are healthy but small portions to ease back into normal eating.

  1. In August 2016 Shaklee officially came out with the "Shaklee Healthy Cleanse" Shaklee scientists researched and hosted control group studies for over a year. I've got to say it's gets the job done in 7 days. It has many of the products listed in this post but the process is a little different. My husband and I gave it a try and I wrote about our experiences at http://www.barefoot-sun.com/2016/10/our-shaklee-healthy-cleanse-experience.html don't hesitate to call me if you have questions.
