DETOX FAQ 2023
Detoxification - ‘a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances’
A Fast – when you drink juices only (fruit or vegetable) each day
A Cleanse – when you eat whole fruits or vegetables only each day
Q. Can we join/start the program at any time? – yes you can
Q. Do we need to prepare or do anything before we start the program ? – no, there is no need for any ‘pre-cleanse’ or anything like that
Q. How many days should I do? – any number of days is good to do, however 7-14 days is excellent because the body cleanses/creates new blood in this time period which is significant for our health.
Q. How often should you detox? – you can do a detox program once or several times a year, or another good strategy is to do a detox program and then choose one or two formulas to take ongoing for a few months or longer. This means that you are improving your health ongoing every month instead of waiting maybe a whole year to work on your health again.
Q. What’s the difference between your program and every other program ? – there are two differences:
• Master Herbal Formulas – using proper herbal formulas (herbal medicines) is significant because they modify and correct the ‘inner terrain’ of the body. Thus simply means that they kill off the bad bacteria and the parasites all over the whole body, as well as repairing and restoring all the body organs too. Both these effects have a major improvement on the health of the body, and it is a quantum leap using these formulas as compared to just doing a normal juice fast etc. It makes a huge difference in the overall effectiveness of a health restoration program, in fact it is the missing part of every detox program.
• No colonics/enemas needed – this is because we use a superior herbal intestine & colon formula that both restores and repairs the elimination system rather than just washing it out with water which is very limited method to use which washes all the good bacteria out of the colon which is counter-productive to restoring the correct bacterial terrain of the colon. Our formula both restores proper daily function of the colon and also repairs and restore the whole intestinal tract too (from the stomach all the way down to and including the colon) It is a very sophisticated formula which has the capability to do this and is much more pleasant to use.
Q. Do I need to do a lot of exercise each day? – no, a small amount of exercise is always good to do. Excessive amount exercise will put too much stress on the body especially if you are very out of shape or unhealthy, this would be counter productive to restoring your health. Improve your health first and then you can add in more and more exercise over time, that is the correct order.
Q. Am I tied to the retreat/resort all day or can I move around the island freely ? – because you do not have to do the colonics system and because the formulas are very stable you are free to move around and partake in different activities if you choose to.
The Detox Experience
Q. Will I be hungry if I only take the herbal formulas and drink juices or eat whole fruits all day? – no, because the herbs and the juices or fruits provide your body with so much natural nutrition and daily energy that many people are very surprised that they do not feel hungry at all like they thought they would.
Q. Will I have good energy each day, or will I be really tired all day while on the program? – you will be amazed that your energy level will be very good each day. The reason for this is that the herbs and the juices/fruits are very good nutrition for your body too and are actually providing better nutrition than your normal daily diet in many cases. Many people are very surprised by how much energy they have during the program and are able to work out daily in gyms etc. too. That said if your body wants to rest then allow it to because repair take place when we rest or sleep. Also, during a detox program is a good time to allow the body to rest form our normal busy daily lives.
Q. Will I be sick or experience nausea or any other harsh detox reactions with the program ? – no. The herbal formulas are very potent yet very stable and do not cause any harsh reactions. They are gentle yet effective. They are amazing formulas in this regard and are a credit to the science of the original Western Herbal System (herbal medicine) that created them long ago. Using proper herbal formulas makes all the difference when doing a detox/weight loss program health program. It is hard to achieve significant progress with our health without them as they modify and correct the bacterial/parasite landscape or ‘inner terrain’ of the body. Herbal formulas that are too aggressive or unbalance would never be a good idea and no toxic herbs are ever used in any of our formulas either as this would never make sense. If the formulas detox you too quickly you can just reduce the dosage down to a more comfortable level but this is extremely rare.
Q. Will I be running to the bathroom all day? – no, this would not make sense, or it would be using something far too aggressive or un-natural on the intestines/colon. Our Flow Formula (intestine & colon formula) is very stable and increases the daily bowel movement from say 1 to 2 or even to 3 times per day. Your elimination system will start to function properly like it should very quickly and will feel much better.
Q. Do I have to do colonics or enemas ? - no, you don’t need to do colonics or enemas on our program as we use a superior herbal intestine & colon formula called ‘Flow’ (capsules) that does a much better job. It does two functions:
- It ensures proper daily function of the elimination system
- It repairs and rebuilds the whole intestinal tract (starting at the stomach and down to and including the colon)
It also restores the correct bacterial terrain in the colon which is highly beneficial as the colonics/enemas wash all this bacteria out. It is a much superior herbal formula to use than a water method which performs a very limited function, and it is much less invasive too.
Q. Is the program flexible or must I stick to one particular daily diet etc.? – the program is completely flexible and you can modify or change it at any time with our guidance to help you to do that. You can choose your daily diet from our four menu options. We will show you what is the most effective one to do for the best results but you can decide which one you want to do.
Q. Which is better to use, fruits or vegetables? – fruits are much better cleansers than vegetables and provide better daily energy too.
Q. Is all that sugar from fruits good ? – yes because the human body runs on sugar, this is a medical fact. Natural sugar from what grows in nature (tree fruits etc.) is our natural and correct fuel. Processed sugar is a different substance and best avoided.
Q. What about green drinks (vegetables)? – they have a place in a health program but fruits are much superior cleansers and you will get much better results by using them, and they feed the body during the program too. Green drinks are best in the afternoon for absorption reasons.
Q. What about Candida, doesn’t the (fruit) sugar make it worse? – no. Candida is a bacteria/parasite that should be in the body normally, in the gut actually, where is does a very good job as the ‘clean up’ crew of all the waste. Candida only becomes a problem when it either overgrows or moves to another area of the body where is should not be. This is simply because there is not the correct bacterial terrain in the gut to keep it in check. Bad diet and anti-biotic use etc. compromises the bacterial terrain in the gut. This can be restored properly by using our Formula P (parasite & candida formula) and our Flow Formula (intestine & colon formula) too. Candida feeds off sugar too yes but if you cut off it’s food supply then it goes looking in another place of the body for ‘food’ so this is a mistake to stop natural sugar in the diet. Many customers have completed up to 21 days orange juice fast (sugar) so if it made Candida worse then this would have become obvious.
Q. How much weight will I lose ? - everyone loses 2-4kgs (4-9 lbs) in 7 days, some can lose a lot more. The most to date being 6 kgs in just two days. Over 14 days it can be anywhere from 4kg-8kg or more. The weight loss can continue even after the program has finished too with some customers reporting back that they lost an additional 4+ kgs over several weeks after finishing the program. This is due to the effect that the herbs have on the ‘inner terrain’ of the body. Using proper herbal formulas can have long lasting effects including greatly reducing the desire for eating junk foods which many customers report.
Q. What if I don’t want to lose any weight? – that’s ok, you can increase the amount of juices or fruits each day and also take plant fats (olive oil or coconut oil) and/or plant fruits (coconut avocado, durian etc.) each day.
Q. Can I detox too fast? – no, the formulas are very stable and the program is designed to detox gently yet effectively.
Q. I have a few different problems with my health, can you focus on these different areas ? – yes. There are always more things you can do for specific areas of health or different body organ problems
Q. Can I do the program if I am taking any medications ? – we always advise to consult with your doctor who put you on the drugs. In Western Herbal teaching there is no contra-indication between pharmaceutical drugs and herbs. You can email us for more detailed info - email@example.com
Q. Should I take supplements? – many supplements are un-natural unfortunately. If they are synthetic/made in a lab then this is always a bad idea because the body cannot use something un-natural. You can’t build your health using synthetic substances. If it grows in nature then it is natural, and safe.
Q. Will my skin sag after I do the OJ or any similar juice fast? – no. When you use natural and correct methods then the whole body adjusts correctly with the weight loss. Customers have achieved 20 kgs weight loss without any problems whatsoever in this regard. If the skin has sagged then it is likely an un-natural method was used for weight loss.
Q. If I lose weight does it stay off or all come back on after I start eating again ? - because the herbal formulas correct the inner 'bacterial terrain' of the body the weight stays off bar a small increase when you first start eating again. This is the significant difference that the herbal formulas make. Losing weight by just doing a lot of exercise for example but taking nothing inside to make this correction will nealry always result in returning to the original weight to when you started, or close to it. This is because the inner terrain was not modified and so returns to it's orignal condition. Another effect that happens by taking the formulas is that they kill off the parasites so people notice that their cravings for bad foods greatly diminish afterwards. This is another reason why the weight will stay off long term. We recommend to continue to take two particular formulas for an extra 2 weeks back home if your stay is short with us in orer to achieve both these results.
Q. How can I continue on with my health progress after the program has finished? - we designed the program with this in mind, meaning that the program should not end when you finish, it can continue on back home. We provide our knowledge documentation to show you how to use natural foods as your medicine back home. By making a few simple adjustments in your daily diet can affect your health in a very simple and positive way.
Q. Can you create custom programs ? – yes we can (Stop smoking program, Menopause, Thyroid, Diabetes, Colon problems, Fertility).
The Herbal Formulas
Q. Are there any unnatural, synthetic or chemical substances in any of the formulas ? – 100% no. Each and every formula only contains 100% natural organic herbs, nothing else added. Because we produce the formulas ourselves we can control what is in them completely. We are very proud of this standard of purity and quality which is very rare nowadays. Our herbal formulas cleanse and detoxify the whole body and also repair and restore the organ systems too. They fulfil both functions which is unique.
Q. Where do the formulas come from ? – we grow the herbs and make the formulas for the last twenty years in Europe. They are the original formulations of The Western Herbal System (herbal medicine), long established as safe and effective. We also source a few rare herbs from around the world to complete some of the formulas. They are handmade and are of greatly superior quality to anything made commercially.
Q. How do the herbal formulas work exactly ? – they go into the stomach, then to the liver which uses them to make it’s own natural substances. Then the bloodstream is supplied with these substances and uses them to go all over the body hunt down and eliminate un-natural bacteria and parasites as well as provide all the different organs with the substances necessary to cleanse and repair & rebuild those organs. So the herbs 'arm the bloodstream' with this capability. It is the blood that does all the restoration in the human body.
Q. How long do the formulas last or keep for? – we have never had a formula go off in 20 years. This is because the herbs are anti-bacteria and no foreign bacteria can survive in them. They self-preserve themselves and because they are powerful no bacteria can survive
Q. Do they need to be re-fridgerated? - no, but you can if you want to. They will keep fine at room temp., just not in direct sunlight.
Q. How do I book ? – just fill in the Booking Enquiry form or email us your preferred dates: firstname.lastname@example.org We will then reply with all the program info and prices.
Q. How do I pay? – we accept bank transfer, debit/credit card, cash (any currency)
Q. Is there anything else to pay? – no there is nothing else to pay, everything is included in your program price. All taxes and VAT are included too.
Q. Do we need to pre book or prepay? – just reserve your dates and then pay a booking deposit to secure the reservation
