Psyllium Husk Cleanse (colon cleanse) FAQ
about this cleanse.
are some tell-tell signs that may reveal that this mix (Psyllium
Husks) is working effectively in my body?
Answer: The husks scrub
the intestinal walls of old fecal matter making it so you retain and
assimilate VITAMINS better out of the foods you eat. This in
itself will give you more energy and make you feel better. Everyone is
different in how their body responds, and at what point it will
respond. If you have eaten a lot of processed foods as a child until
now, and if you have NEVER done a colon cleanse before, you will have
some changes going through your body, such as bloatiness, gas, maybe
even some cramping. But if you are already pretty healthy and have
always taken care of your body, then the changes will not be as
Question: Is it ok to drink my last
psyllium husk drink of the day before going to bed?
Yes, you may take the husks before going to bed. Just make sure
you take it at least 15 minutes before meals and drink plenty of
water. The husks have a lot of fiber and so you should drink lots of
water with it.
Where can I buy the blackstrap molasses?
You can buy blackstrap molasses at the health food store.
Do you suggest getting you intestines cleaned by a professional
first or can I just use psyllium husks to do that for me?
You don't need to see a doctor to do the colon cleanse. Did you read
pertaining to the cleanse? Just follow it and you will be doing the
cleanse. It is safe and easy to do. I have done the cleanse myself
three times, and I take a daily maintenance dose of psyllium every
morning to keep me regular. It works!
Is it really important to get the whole husks? Why?
Yes, it is very important to ONLY use the whole husks because they
literally scrub the intestinal walls of the old fecal matter. The
powders or pills can't do that. People who use the powder husks or the
pills complain that the cleanse did not work. Well, no wonder it
didn't work they didn't have the correct ingredients that work! Once
the intestines are cleaned you will have better bowel movements and
you will also absorb the nutrients from the food you eat, which are
both very important for optimal health.
Where is a good place to buy the psyllium husks?
The most reliable source for buying the "whole" psyllium
husks is from cleansing or surgery. http://www.cleansingorsurgery.com/psyllium.htm
I have an 11 month old and am still nursing. Is it ok to do the
psyllium husk cleanse while I am nursing?
The psyllium husk cleanse is a completely natural cleanse using
natural ingredients, and so taking it would not harm you or the baby
while you are breast feeding.
Do you recommend eating meat, bread, etc? Or
more of a juice fast and raw fruits and vegetables during this
cleanse? I am desperately trying to lose weight too.
You can go ahead and eat in the same way, and the same foods you
have always eaten. That's what I like about this cleanse is you can
still eat FOOD! The most important part about this cleanse is to
always make sure you take your drink BEFORE eating dinner by at least
15 minutes. If you're trying to lose weight the best and easiest
method without missing any of your favorite foods, is to try food
combining. My husband and I maintain a pretty constant weight because
we combine all the foods we eat properly. To understand more about
this great way of eating Amazon this book: Fit For Life by Harvey
and Marylyn Diamond.
I'm 15 Lbs. overweight and crave sweets. Should I take the cleanse
drink less times a day?
No. I recommend that you
do take the drink four times per day just as stated in the
instructions of my article
The first few days on the cleanse do you actually feel worse than
normal. Because I' m on my second day and my stomach is more distended
than ever and feel more bloated. This is discouraging and making
me wonder does Psyllium husk trigger any side effects?
Continue doing the cleanse - your symptoms only mean the cleanse
is doing its job! You might feel a bit under the weather for the first
week or so, or even longer -- everyone reacts differently to the
cleanse. You might get gaseous, bloaty, cramps, mucous, you might feel
like you are catching a cold, etc. This is the toxins coming out of
your body - they are being disturbed by the cleansing. Toxins thrive
on a dirty intestinal tract, but because of the cleanse doing its job,
its throwing off the toxins and stirring them up in your system. Try
and get your mind off of your symptoms - get yourself some good movies
or a good book to read and just relax for the first week or so, if you
can, if not, then just know that your discomfort will only last for a
little while, pretty soon, in a few weeks you will be feeling much
better. So don't give up!
I am currently doing this cleanse. I feel wonderful except I am
having heartburn everyday. Have you heard this complaint before? Also
I would like to continue after the 3 month period. Is that a ok thing
to do?. I have IBS. Also does this aid in weight loss? If I continue
what should the dosage be?
No, I have never heard of someone getting
heartburn from doing the psyllium husk cleanse. When are you taking
the drink, before or after you eat? It is best to do it at least 15
minutes before each meal. Be sure to drink lots of water before and
after. This also helps so you won't be as hungry at meal times, and we
all know what that means. ;-)
by all means it is safe to drink the psyllium Husks even after you do the three month cleanse,
I have done that before as a general maintenance. Take one heaping
tablespoon in the morning 15 minutes before eating and that's it -
this maintenance dosage will keep your bowels regulated as well. I
would not consider the psyllium cleanse to be a way to lose weight,
only to feel more energetic and healthy. You may lose some of your
mid-drift after you're done with the cleanse but don't take the
cleanse just so you will lose weight - that is not the purpose for the
cleanse. The purpose for the colon cleanse is to clean the
