How to Prepare for a Detox

by Stephanie Carnes

Embarking on a healthy detoxification plan this spring may be just what you need! Take the time now to prepare and educate yourself about healthy practices so that you can avoid the pitfalls of fad diets and fasting. The information below will provide a basis for what is needed to support your body and aid it's natural healing processes while on a detox diet.

What You'll Need

Shopping Guide: This simple shopping guide is a list of helpful nutritious liquids that will aid your body in the beneficial process of detoxification.

1. Vit-Ra-Tox Kit - Purchase this kit here.

2. Quality Water - If you’re drinking quality water, you will need to research this topic.

3. Nutritious Liquids
The importance of drinking only liquids on a detox plan is to give your digestive system a time to rest and focus on doing the important job of eliminating toxins and healing. You will need to drink 1/2 to 1 gallon of nutritious liquids each day, and having a couple of thermoses on hand allows you to travel with your liquids.
  • Raw Milk 
  • Living Fuel 
  • Fresh, organic vegetable juice 
  • Home-made bone broth or packaged soup 
  • Beet Kvass 
  • Kefir 
  • Kombucha 

4. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil will keep you warm, cleanse your liver and help your body remove toxins. It will also help you feel full and reset your metabolism while you fast. Take two to three tablespoons of coconut oil each day. Sally Fallon and her co-author Mary Enig have written extensively about the health benefits of coconut oil in their book Eat Fat, Lose Fat.

Additional Details

RAW MILK
If you’re having trouble locating raw milk, contact your nearest Weston A. Price chapter.

VERY VEGGIE
Very Veggie is a delicious, tomato-based, organic vegetable juice. Locate a supplier nearest you.

BONE BROTH
The chicken or turkey bones in the stock recipe can be replaced with any other meat bones such as lamb, beef, buffalo, fish or venison. For additional stock recipes, refer to Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions cookbook.

ORGANIC GOURMET BROTH
Imagine Foods and Pacific Foods make delicious, organic gourmet broth. These broths are made from organically raised free-range chickens, organic beef and organic vegetables. If you cannot make your own broth, look for single serving and family-sized packages from these companies

TEAS
Hot chamomile tea with raw cream is a treat at bedtime. Peppermint tea in the mid-afternoon also brings a sense of digestive health during a fast. My other favorite teas include Echinacea, Nettle Leaf, Pau D’Arco and Oat Straw. I recommend one-to-four cups of herbal tea daily.

The Importance of Supplements

It is essential during your fast that you take supplements. Without them, you will not remove as many of the toxins that are being released as you need to do for a successful cleanse. The Optimal Health Center recommends V.E. Irons’ Vit-Ra-Tox kit. The fiber in the Vit-Ra-Tox kit will give the toxins, bacterial waste and debris, which are leaving your body, something to adhere to while passing through your colon. The clay carries a negative electric charge and can attract positively charged pathogenic organisms along with their toxins and carry them out of the body. Clay compounds also provide minerals. As such, bentonite clay facilitates assimilation of the nutrients you are taking in from raw milk and vegetable juices and can help the intestines to rid the body of toxins that are being released from cells.

The other supplements in the Vit-Ra-Tox kit are Greenlife, a combination of grasses, vitamin C, and Wheat Germ/Flax oil. These will bring into your body the extra nutrients needed to keep your immune system fully functional while you do the hard work of fasting.
