Detox is over…..   Leave a comment

So how do you feel?

For me, it started better than it ended.  The beginning of the cleanse was great. I was eating right. I meditated. I had a day of fasting.  Then things changed.  I would love to say everyday was awesome and now I feel so cleansed and lighter, but that’s not exactly the case.  It’s all my fault too.  I got really busy and didn’t plan my meals accordingly.  As a result, I didn’t always eat in a timely manor which resulted in me rushing to take my detox herbs all at once sometimes.  I also didn’t drink enough water during the liver cleanse.  I cheated and ate rice once.  It was sooo good.  One night my husband made a blackberry pie and I had a small slice.  I didn’t want to let him down.  You understand right?

So all in all, I wasn’t as discipline this body cleanse as the last.  But hey, no since living with regret.  I’m sure It was still effective.  I know next time if I get busy, I need to stop and really plan everything out.  I should have even set reminders on my phone to tell me when it was time to take a pill or have my detox tea.  I realize that no matter how great your memory is, when you get unexpectedly busy, it’s real easy for things to slip your mind. Even things like eating.

I hope you all did better than me.   Join me again in the spring when I do it all over again, the right way.


Oh, and stay tuned.  You never know what kind of results or discoveries may come from you detoxing and fasting.  It may take a few weeks, but you may notice slight changes in your body or in your mind.  They should be good changes though.

Detox Your Way Into 2012   1 comment

It’s 2012!  You’ve spent the last 2 months eating, drinking and being merry.  Now it’s back to the real world.  We all want to start fresh when the new year begins, so why not start with a fresh body?  You know calivegans loves a good detox and so we’ve decided to start out the new year with our very own specially designed full body cleanse.  Howzabout you join us and start the new year off with a clean body and a clear mind?

Before we get into our specific program, I want to talk a little about setting an intention for your detox.  What do I mean by setting an intention?  What’s your purpose for detoxing?  What are you trying to achieve by cleansing?  Even if your cleanse is to do just that, cleanse, then you have set your intention.

A couple of years ago, Lady A did a detox cleanse, which she told me about.  Her intention was for creativity.  Soon after she completed her cleanse a new passion was ignited within her; painting.  The last detox we did together was for the purpose of healing our fibroid tumors, health in general.  Through the detox we became vegans, even though we were very content vegetarians.  I personally experienced amazing emotional healing in the months following the detox.  I felt as if I took a shovel into my unconscious and dug out all the crap.  I’m a healthier person physically (my fibroid is shrinking), mentally, emotionally and best of all spiritually.  I have never felt as connected to The Universe as I do now.

So, we absolutely suggest you set an intention for your detox; whatever you want.  Direction in life, clarity, peace, love, health, creativity, drive, etc.  Whatever you would like more of in your life.  What’s calivegans intention, you ask?  Financial abundance.  Calivegans is looking to attract more of the green stuff!

Alright, here’s our full body detox.  If you can’t find the products we mention in your local health food store, then see if you can find a close substitute.  You can email us or leave a comment for help!

Here’s what we’re using:  ~Trader Joe’s ® colon cleanse~~Nature’s Secret Urinary Cleanse and Flush Caplets~~Planetary Herbals Bupleurum Liver Cleanse Tablets~~Wellements Daily Detox Tea~~Yogi Detox Tea

This is a 15 day cleanse.  5-day colon cleanse, 5-day liver cleanse and a 5-day kidney cleanse. 

Colon Cleanse (5 days):  Start each morning with a large glass of water with 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon.  Follow suggested instructions of TJ’s colon cleanse.  Have 1 bag of Wellements Daily Detox and 1 bag of Yogi Detox throughout the day and before you go to sleep.  I did Yogi during the day and Wellements at night, but whichever you prefer.

Liver Cleanse (5 days):  Start each morning with a large glass of water with 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon.  Take 2 pills 2x daily.  1 bag of Wellements tea and 1 bag of Yogi tea throughout the day and before bed.

Kidney/Urinary Cleanse (5 days):  Start each morning with a large glass of water with 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon.  Take 1 capsule 2x daily.  1 bag of Wellements and 1 bag of Yogi throughout the day and before bed.

**You should be drinking 8-10 glasses of water daily throughout all 15 days.

For the Liver and Kidney cleanse phases of the full-body detox, we highly recommend that you eat only fruits, vegetables, and vegan protein.  Here’s a sample of a good daily meal plan:

Breakfastfruit smoothie and a full glass of water.

Snack: Plantain chips.

Lunch: Salad (spinach, carrots, beets, cherry tomatoes, almond slices, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, whatever else you love, and a balsamic vinaigrette), or fresh or canned vegetable soup

Snack:  Pistachios.

Dinner:  Kale, bell pepper, mushroom Stir-Fry with Seitan or Field Roast® Vegan Sausage.  If you are okay with soy you can buy ready-made seitan from the store, or use tofu or soy meats.

Snack:  Fresh fruit.

If you want to take your detox a step further, we recommend you meditate for 15-20 mins daily upon your intention and/or visualize yourself experiencing your intention realized.

Calivegans will be starting this detox on Monday, January 9.  Join us!  Leave a comment with your intention below.  We would love to hear from you!  Let’s bring in the new year together, rejuvenated and revitalized!

Detox 2012 here we go!!

To detox or not to detox.   1 comment

There is a lot of talk floating around about body cleanses and what they do.    People are starting to take notice as they should.  Is a detox right for you and why should you do it?

Short answer:  To rid your body of toxins so your system can flow smoothly.
If you’re about to partake in a diet change or healing regimen,  you should do a full body cleanse first.
Imagine putting the best styling and moisturizing products on dirty hair.  Not only would you create more build-up but I doubt you would ever get the results you are looking for.

If you try to heal your body before cleaning it out, you may not be getting the optimum benefit out of the healing process.

I suggest starting with a colon cleanse, then liver and ending with a kidney cleanse.  Then fill your body with healthy nutritious foods.

Side effects may include clearer skin and a more regular system.
