New Year New You Cleanse Q&A

New Year New You Cleanse

New Start Date, Wed Jan 6

You can do a mild, moderate, or full-out Capricorn cleanse.

Clean Up On Aisle "SELF."

This cleanse is a combination of the best cleanses I have done, including The Colorado Diet, Ayurveda, Gerson, anti-inflammatory, and a parasite cleanse.


Over the next 7-DAYS, slowly remove caffeine, sugar, dairy, eggs, soy, gluten, peanuts, corn, dyes, and artificial sweeteners (stevia is fine).

Ease into your cleanse. This is a critical step so you don't go into a healing crisis (flu-like symptoms, inability to sleep, skin break-outs, and sluggishness).

Jan 6-8: DAYS 1 - 3 Reduce caffeine and sugar (cut in half) 
Eat: 2 - 3 Meals a day (details below), 2 - 3 tart apples day

Jan 9-10 DAYS 4 - 5 Eliminate Corn, Dairy, eggs, soy, dyes, sugar & artificial sweeteners (stevia is fine). Cut Caffeine in half once again. 
Eat: 2 - 3 Meals a day, 1 - 2 Green drinks, 1 – 2 Beets (details below), 2 - 3 tart apples day (download links below)

Jan 11-12 DAYS 6 - 7 Eliminate Peanuts (you can have 1 cup of coffee or green tea a day if need be)
Eat: 2 - 3 Meals a day, 1 - 2 Green drinks, 1 – 2 Beets (details below), 2 - 3 tart apples day

On Day 6 or 7  Take 2 COLON CLEANSE (list and links to order below)

HYDRATE, HYDRATE,  HYDRATE: In between meals, take a sip or two of plain hot water every ten minutes, and try to drink as much plain water at room temperature as possible during the day in between meals.


Suck on cardamom pods throughout the day. This offers a similar taste sensation as coffee and antidotes the effect of caffeine. 
Dandelion or nettle tea can also help. 

Listen to Your Body 

If you start detoxing too fast, slow down.



  • Eat 2 - 3 meals a day of organic veggies & 100-150g meet protein.
    2 - 3 tart apples day (separate from meal)
  • Cook and season with healthy oils – Ghee, Coconut, Olive. Avocado, Sesame

Day 4 – 7 add:

  • 1 - 2 Green drink/tonic daily (8-10 ounces)
  • 1 - 2 raw beets salad raw or lightly steamed. I also make a beet smoothie


  • What to Eat - Winter Foods
  • Green Drink Recipes - 1 - 2 a day
  • Kitchari Recipe (for main cleanse) More listed by Anja
  • Pre-Cleanse Detail Days 1 - 7  (PDF of this page)


    You can’t eat what isn't there.
  • Shop organic
  • Order your herbs
  • Move your body – walk, Yoga, Qi Gong
  • Meditation
  • Journal 

DAYS 8-18  HERBS YOU WILL NEED (Kitchari phase)

I'll post more on this later

The Colorado Cleanse has a list of herbs to use, and as much as I like them, they are expensive and bothers a lot of people's stomachs. 

So, I found other herbs that work very well.



NOTE: Check with your health care provider before using any of these herbs as they may be contraindicated in some health issues.


COLON CLEANSE - This is a 14 Day Cleanse; however, I take two at the beginning and end of my cleanse. It's gentle and effective. However, if you decide to use this throughout the cleanse (1 daily or every other day), do not use the TRIPHALA.

INGREDIENTS: Senna Leaf, Cascara Sagrada Bark, Psyllium Husk Powder, Flaxseed Powder, Aloe Vera Gel, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Licorice Root, Medium Chain Triglycerides Oil

TRIPHALA - supports Healthy Digestion & Bowl Cleaning

Only use Triphala if you do not use the Colon Cleanse throughout. This is more mild

INGREDIENT: Organic Amalaki fruit (Phllanthus embilca)


Use as directed

INGREDIENTS: Cloves (bud), Black Walnut hull, Wormwood leaves and stem, Milk Thistle Seed Extract, Chanca Piedra Whole Herb Extract, Protease, Alpha-Galactosidase, Amylase, Cellulase, Lipase, Bromelain, Papain




Our bodies are exposed to heavy metals every day via food, water, pharmaceuticals, manufactured products, pollution and more. When heavy metals accumulate to reach toxic levels, they can lead to an array of symptoms and chronic conditions. The chemical compounds in cilantro act as natural cleansing agents, binding to toxic metals and loosening them for easier transport out of the body.

Known for its unique, can’t-be-mistaken flavor and commonly used in Mexican cooking, cilantro can be incorporated into all kinds of food — poultry and fish dishes, salads, salsas, blended smoothies and more. It can easily be found in grocery stores or nurseries, should you want to add it to your herb garden.

 Dandelion (Tea)

Dandelion has traditionally been used as a diuretic, and preliminary research suggests that it may help improve liver and gallbladder function. Of noteworthy nutritional value, dandelion is chock full of vitamins A, B6, C, D and K plus minerals, such as iron, potassium, zinc, and higher levels of beta carotene than carrots.

Virtually no part of the dandelion plant goes to waste as the root, leaves and flowers are all edible and used for therapeutic purposes. Try steeping the roots to make dandelion tea, sautéing the flowers as a side or adding the raw leaves to your favorite salad.

Milk Thistle

The herb most commonly recommended for supporting liver function is milk thistle. Its active compound, silymarin, has been clinically proven to stabilize cellular membranes and stimulate detoxification pathways. It also has anti-inflammatory effects, and some studies suggest that it may even help the liver regenerate tissue.

Because silymarin is not very water-soluble or absorbed well by the body, most milk thistle products are standardized preparations containing 70 to 80 percent silymarin.


Red Clover

Red clover has long been harvested for use in a variety of preparations, including teas, tinctures, capsules and topical products. The blossoms support liver function by stimulating bile production and act as an effective diuretic, helping to cleanse the blood and rid the body of excess fluids. They’re rich in isoflavones — water-soluble compounds that have estrogen-like effects and improve circulation, heart health, and menopause symptoms.

Red clover is also a valuable source of many nutrients, including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamin, and vitamin C.


Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family that has been widely used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to treat digestion and liver disorders. Curcumin is the powerful phytochemical component that gives turmeric its distinctive bright yellow color and stimulates the production of bile by the gallbladder. Bile eliminates toxins in the liver and rejuvenates cells that break down harmful compounds. Curcumin is also recognized for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects. Studies show it may even be useful in preventing and treating cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
