Clean Up On Aisle "SELF" -- New Year Cleanse DAYS 1-7Jan 02, 2021
New Year Cleanse
Did you eat a bit too much of the wrong things over the holidays?
I sure did. And there's nothing like using the New Year Capricorn energy to get right back in balance again. You can do this in moderation or full-out Capricorn.
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.
PRE-CLEANSE - 7 DAYS
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).
DAYS 1 - 3 Reduce caffeine and sugar (cut in half)
Eat fresh vegetables & fruits.
DAYS 4 - 5 Eliminate Corn, Dairy, eggs, soy, dyes, sugar & artificial sweeteners (stevia is fine). Cut Caffeine in half once again.
DAYS 6 - 7 Eliminate Peanuts (you can have 1 cup of coffee or green tea a day if need be)
Day 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.
HAVING A HARD TIME LETTING GO OF CAFFEINE?
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.

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.
HERE ARE THE THREE HERBS I USE.
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 only use it as the beginning and end of my cleanse. It's gentle and effective. However, if you decide to use this throughout the cleanse, 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
INGREDIENT: Organic Amalaki fruit (Phllanthus embilca)
SCRAM - REMOVE PARASITES
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
OTHER HERBS TO CONSIDER ADDING TO YOUR DIET
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 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.
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 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.
