FAQS - Frequently Asked Detox Questions
What are the benefits of doing an herbal detox?
The herbal detox comes with both the Parasite Candida Cleanse and Tummy Teatox. This dual herbal infusion works together to rid the body of toxins, heavy metals, old fecal matter, parasites, candida, gas, bloating, and excess retained fluid.
How often should we detox?
I recommend detoxing every 3-4 months.
How do I prepare the herbal infusions?
Add 2 FLAT tablespoons of the Parasite Candida
Cleanse into one 32 oz mason jar and 2 FLAT tablespoons of the Tummy Teatox into a second mason jar. Flatten each tablespoon by running your finger across the top of the tablespoon. Do not use a measuring tablespoon. Pour 32 oz of boiling water into each glass,
seal the lid and allow the infusion to steep overnight.
When do I begin drinking the herbal infusions?
Begin drinking the herbal infusions when you awake and throughout the day. It does not matter which herbal infusion you drink first. Just be sure to drink them separately and twenty minutes apart. You are allowed to drink each herbal infusion over the course of an hour, however, it is better to drink
them in small amounts throughout the day.
If I’m already plant-based and/or eating healthy and exercising is it necessary for me to detox?
Yes. In the years prior to you becoming plant-based, you accumulated layers of toxicity, bowel waste, mucus, and acidity in your body’s tissues. Although a plant-based lifestyle is healing the herbs in this detox is far better at eliminating toxicity. In addition, everyone who takes showers in tap water, breaths
inner air, eats fruits and vegetables that are not organic will still accumulate toxicity.
What should I expect during the detox?
As toxicity is released from the tissues into the blood and mucus and bowel waste are removed you may experience a dull headache, slight stomach cramping, tiredness, and nausea. This is a sign your body is detoxing. Most people experience this the first 3-4 days of the detox. You could also experience some initial diarrhea instead of full stools. The bowels will eventually gain tone and health to move this stage. You may also experience a boost in libido, energy, sound sleep, and improved mood, especially after 10-14 days. During weeks three and four you will experience the majority of your healing and weight loss. Using the sauna as much as possible helps to eliminate toxins which will help to alleviate the symptoms caused by detoxification.
Why is the herbal detox so bitter? Can I add anything to help with the bitter taste?
Bitter herbs detoxify the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system so it is an important part of the healing process. Most people have immature taste buds because they tend to only eat sweet, salty, and fatty foods then avoid all bitter foods. Unfortunately, nothing can be added to buffer the taste, however, you can suck on orange slices after taking a sip.
Can the Parasite Candida Cleanse and Tummy Teatox be mixed together?
Can I breastfeed while detoxing?
No. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding you cannot detox. Detoxing would allow toxins to be released in the blood where they could get into the placenta or breast milk before being eliminated.
Does your body continue to cleanse after the detox is complete?
Yes. If you maintain a plant-based lifestyle and regular exercise regimen afterward.
Is it normal to develop acne while detoxing?
Yes. The skin is one of the top elimination routes for toxins, mucus, and bacteria. Once your begin detoxing it is possible for you to develop temporary acne that goes away.

No. It is not recommended that you drink the detox all at once. Drink in small gulps throughout the day.
