New to the idea of flushes

18 posts in this topic

Well, I've been in pretty bad health the last 2 years or so. I was already skinny to begin with and lost like 10lbs. Also my acne is pretty bad. I've had it for 6 years or so. I've tried a lot of stuff from topical treatments to antibiotics. I'm hoping a holistic approach will at the very least keep my body healthy, and getting rid of acne is a bonus.

So I've been reading a lot of threads and information posted on curezone and other places. I'm planning on reading more. But I'm more specifically interested in the bowel/parasite cleanse. But I'm a little confused on how to go about doing this.

I've seen all kinds of kits like ParaGone.. that combine a lot of herbs. But then you have to buy another product to rebuild gut lining or something? And its supposed to take 15-30 days to do this. As I understand it, aren't you weaker during a flush? And if you had to do one for 15 days, wouldn't you have to be resting for hours every day or something. I thought you can do weekend flushes kind of thing. I just don't want to collapse when doing a flush.

Another question I have is if Burdock Root is effective? Like it just helps the liver get rid of toxins or does it serve as a partial flush? I'm wondering if I should get the capsules of that stuff or maybe the Yogi Detox Tea because that contains Dandelion Root, but not sure if its worth it. Well, if anyone can help clarify these things, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to continue educating myself before performing any of these cleanses.

Well, I guess I'll respond. Parasite killing (really Candida as there probably aren't that many actual parasites in your system) is effective. Don't know about ParaGone but wormwood (Artemisia Annua), echinacea and grapefruit seed are really good at killing candida. Take this with food. After that, yes you have to "repair" the gut lining by taking some probiotics, and possibly some glutamine or something else.

Burdock is primarily a kidney herb. Milk thistle is good for the liver. Don't waste your money on that Yogi tea stuff, just go to an herb store and by all the herbs in bulk. Email or PM me if you need more specifics like a list of herbs or whatnot.


Plaquoid-mucous cleansing-type junk, liver flushing, colloidal silver, coral calcium... these are definitely NOT part of my regimen

hey thanks for the info dantecubit. smile.gif I've been thinking about how theres a lot of herbs that are useful for killing parasites. But theres so many thats why I was thinking of ParaGONE, because it combines all of those into just one. Seems interesting. However I'm confused about the timelime on that. Is it supposed to take 15 days to do a cleanse of parasites?

I thought burdock was a liver helper, like helped it clean out toxins or something like that. Seems to have helped some people.

Let me get this flushing thing straight though. Theres liver and parasitic flushes that involve taking herbs orally right? And it can take 2 weeks or more to complete one of these right? But what about the colon flushes do you eat stuff too or just take an enema? If so shouldn't it be the fastest flush available?

I'm confused, you mentioned that the parasite cleanse is more like a candida cleanse. I thought that a candida cleanse is separate and involves a very strict diet or something like Threelac. Also, how effective do you think grapefruit seed extract is? I thought cloves, wormwood and black walnut hulls were the only herbs that really kill all the parasites. But I also read that the P&B shakes are supposed to help with parasites. Ahhhh, so confusing!!! I need a map for curezone...I get so lost. And overwhelmed.

Yeah me too gemma. I liked the sensiblehealth.com site a lot better. It explained things a lot better. So I take it the liver flush can take 1-2 days. Well, I think I'd rather do a bowel flush first. I've been having constipation problems regularly. Hopefully I can try it this weekend. You just take Psyllium Husks and Benzonite Clay and then tomorrow morning go to the bathroom and your done?

I think I'll save the liver flush for later. Reading the sensible health page. Several people recommend taking like some kind of tincture that helps break down the liver/gallbladder stones first. I'm thinking of taking some burdock root prior to that as well.

I read somewhere that you can mix the P&B with organic apple juice instead of water...which I have been doing and it takes just fine...plus you don't notice when you are chugging it down.

I'm doing a TOTAL FAST right now and taking herbs and doing p&b shakes. When you are eating and doing bowel cleansing, the p&b shakes tend to cling to the food instead of the mucoid plaque. I have a feeling I've got tons of that stuff I've never gotten out.

I'll let you guys know how it goes. So far right now, I think I'll probably hit the plaque tomorrow or the next day.

I've never bowel cleansed this way but it seems to be a lot better than eating while trying to bowel cleanse. Also, I am using some juice to give the p&b some flavor; half water/half juice with the p&b stuff.

where do you get those P&B shakes? And roughly how long are you supposed to take them? I thought I read somewhere you can do some type of enema cleanse. Like put a certain liquid in your rectum and let it go inside a bit.. and its supposed to get things out. Is that similiar to a colon cleanse or part of the program? I'm just feeling very overwhelmed with all this information. heh

Right now I'm mostly confused about the timelines for all these flushes. Parasitic and Colon flushes can be 2-4 weeks? And liver flushes can only be a few days right? Just want to make sure I got this clear atleast.

How long are you doing this for? How do you keep from the hunger driving you mad?


My regimen:

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.

Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.

Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.

Lol, you feel light and good because that's how your body is coping with starvation, it's releasing hormones and whatnot.

I dont really think its healthy to starve yourself like that. sad.gif

OUt right dangerous actually, but oh well, they are your bodies. sad.gif

The most Ive ever fasted was one day..and it seemed like a really bad thing for me to be doing, with an eating disorder history and all.

Good luck to anyone choosing to pursue it though, please be safe!

I was wondering if somebody could recommend a book on this cleansing subject. I've seen like 50 books listed on curezone.. :o Hard to figure out the right ones.

I also seen some books on alternative medicine.. seems to be a ton of different approaches to better health besides cleansing.. crazy stuff heh

Something to think about..

It seemed for me a healthy medium was taking the shakes, drinking a ton of water and then sticking to foods like soups and maybe a light salad. I noticed when I did that a lot of MP came out..as opposed to eating more bulkier stuff like beans and whole grains. MIght be a good idea for those who dont wanna fast completely, like a veggie soup diet or something..
