Liver Detox and Blood Cleanse Testimonials -- Phase 3 of Full Body Detox
Rheumatoid Arthritis: "This is my 5th liver detox, and the best gets better each time. I just want you to know my results and convey how beneficial the detox has been to me after managing chronic severe RA on my own for 5 yrs.
I did have a few hours of healing crisis mainly in my ankle and wrist and neck joints on the 4th day. But by the 5th day my body felt more energetic and capable of ambulating (with the aid of a cane which I use for my own safety and steadying when my husband is not walking with me) for longer periods of time, which is a good thing indeed! I just feel cleaner and guess what I noticed about my tongue?? It is a clean bright healthy pink which I don't recall seeing in a long time. (I generally have to scrape it to try to make it look clean) For all of the above results I had with this detox, I would say I made it with flying colors and for this thought I can SMILE!!!!"
Diabetes: "I made it till the last day, just living it one day at a time, with the exception of a few instances of minor discomfort, everything went fine. I am a diabetic, controlled only with supplements and diet. Sometimes it's not controlled so well, but during the detox, my blood sugar went to normal -- the same with my blood pressure. Today I had my first salad and I feel wonderful."
More Energy:"This DETOX was just awe inspiring. This is my second and my thanks to Jon for the DETAILED schedule; it really kept me on track. There is so much to remember that it was really helpful checking the schedule all day long to make sure I was getting everything.
My Saturday and Sunday were the best days. I found I had so much energy that I was buzzing around the house doing projects I had been putting off for months. On Sunday afternoon my dog and I went for a long hike in a wilderness area not far from my house. The colors, smells and sights seemed to be so intense I sometimes felt like I was HIGH. (Hope I am allowed to say that….lol.) I never really felt hungry, even on Sunday, but it was an almost religious experience to sit down to that LARGE salad and finally get to CHEW something.
I only wish there was a way I could convert/convince more people of the value of this."
Donating Blood:"I've always appreciated finding the 'rhythm' of the fast; getting to the point where I know how much of what I need to max on the cleansing, moderate the spaciness, and keep things moving through. I always used to do the more macho one day "Big Gulp" liver flush instead of this more gradual approach, which I must say I prefer.
So it's been pretty smooth. So smooth, in fact, that I donated blood today. (It was the last day of a blood drive at the military hospital where I work -- and they are down on their stores). It was cake, err. tea, until I got back to my desk, at which time I decided I'd be best served to kick my feet up on my desk, lean back, and breath -- but 5 minutes later I was really good-to-go and have been more productive at work than I expected. I was concerned that I not 'hit the wall' during the work week, and I haven't; so if it gets intense over the weekend I can just lay low, have time to take an enema, etc. Don't think blood donation is really a good idea overall, but I did want to participate. Got a great tee shirt!"

Floaty Bits: "My husband and I just finished the liver detox. From day 1, immediately after the first round of tinctures, I had a headache until day 3. Doing everything as prescribed; at the end of day 4, I decided to weigh myself, prompted by the feeling of heavy legs and your email that day about dehydration. To my surprise, I had gained 4 lbs, while my husband had lost 5. I decided to do a long sauna, came out 2 lbs down. Not satisfied, I drank some cranberry/apple juice and also a veggie juice with parsley, which I think is a diuretic. By morning I had lost another 2+ lbs. I felt a bit better after that! Also, during the cleanse I had some symptoms including itching skin, tiredness, brain fog, and also, as I am an athlete, I noticed that I was unable to do much of my workouts because my legs just felt too heavy. If I ran 3 miles, by the end of the day, I felt like I had run 20.
End of day 5 and day 6 I noticed a ton of little white bits mostly flat and irregularly shaped, in my stools and several floaty masses, cloudlike and white. Interesting stuff indeed. My husband and I realize what a major undertaking it is for you to run the yearly detox, but as this was our first liver detox we appreciated all the support you provided. We probably never would have done it on our own."
Easier than I Thought: "This was actually easier than I thought it would be, and I must say the results are super. Here are some results:
- I lost eight pounds.
- Blood sugar was always in the normal range. This afternoon it was 72.
- Blood pressure dropped to 110/70.
- I have an outstanding sense of smell.
- My appetite has reduced (I'll try to stay good).
- I also was able to focus at work easier, and
- My ability to meditate and pray was easier as I wasn't agitated.
In the beginning I experienced mood swings, but then I was calmer. The morning garlic drink was not bad -- tasted like an Orange Julius. At first the tinctures tasted bad, but with organic vegetable juice, it tasted more like a Snappy Tom.
This is the best way to start the New Year, and dare I say it, I am looking forward to the next one."
Looking Forward to Next Year: "Both Jerry and I had a much easier time with the detox this year. The schedule made it easy, especially when I was at work at lunch time and Jerry could just check out what he was supposed to do. It took a lot of guesswork out of when to do what because that drove me crazy last year. I know it doesn't have to be followed to the "T", but trying to sort out everything can be a challenge.
We both lost weight, Jerry 10 pounds and I lost 8 pounds. It was all excess from the last two months of vacationing and the holidays, so we are glad it's gone. However, we are both determined to continue with a healthy eating plan and take off the rest this year.
It's hard to compare how I felt during the detox because I had a cold as well as a knee problem, so my mind was on other pains. The fasting was much easier than last year and energy level better. Last time we didn't take the chlorella. Every morning after the drink my stomach was nauseated, but after about an hour everything was fine. We didn't get hungry. Jerry said it was really easy this year and he had no problems other than the desire to chew something (and to eat a handful of raw almonds). By the last day, though, we were really counting the hours for a salad, and looking forward to eating other food. Since we still haven't noticed real hunger, we realize how much of eating is just a habit.
We're looking forward to continuing the detox and joining everyone again next year."
Allergies and Blood Pressure:"This was my first time doing the liver detox. I must say that I feel great and lost seven or more pounds (have not weighed in a few days). My sense of taste and smell did change. I normally have year round nasal congestion but now I can breathe freely, which I think helped with the old taste buds as food tastes better, clearer. I have borderline high blood pressure and so decided to go off meds while detoxing and to my great surprise the pressure readings were even lower than with the meds, WOW! Now that's amazing to me. I thought I would be stuck on these meds for life…not anymore. I am so glad I participated this year and look forward to additional improvement in my health. Hope to join you next year."
