Some Notes…

This is the same Detox that I did myself a few years ago. I get lots and lots of people asking about it so I thought I should type it out.

If you’re reading this then you are obviously more than just interested, which is great. When I decided to try it, I was told to stick to it to best I could as ‘breaking’ it would mean having to start from day one again, meaning all that hard work would be wasted so don't be tempted to have a cream cake end of week one!! As you can't have a 'break' and continue on with this detox, it's kind of all or nothing.

Remember that the Detox isn’t just about what you eat, it’s also about what we ‘intake’ in our day to day lives, such as toothpastes and shampoos for example. We really do have to watch everything that goes into our bodies, whether that’s through the mouth, nose or via skin absorption.

Basically we are trying to ‘undo’ the ‘badness’ that has built up into our system (toxins) through the years, and by cutting out all the 'crap' we give our bodies a chance to not only benefit from not having to deal with that 'crap' but to repair and recover from the years of abuse it's had to suffer from it.

Items in the avoid list should be avoided at all costs!! Check the ingredients list of all purchases – make sure none of the items to be avoided are there. At all!

Items in the moderate list can be eaten/used up to twice a week.

Items in the allowed list can be eaten anytime and as much as wanted!

A good quality multi vitamin is sometimes recommended (older people may want to consider calcium supplements too). Deodorants that contain alcohol or aluminium must not be used (daily baths/showers work just as good – especially as the toxins reduce over time). Most non-natural deodorants contain unwanted chemicals so as a safeguard, don’t use them. Do not use perfumes or aftershaves – if you must, get some natural aromatherapy oils instead. Do not use fluoride toothpaste – instead get fluoride-free (Boots and Sainsbury’s do their own). Men: you can use cold water as aftershave - remb the job of an aftershave is to close the pores after shaving, and cold water does that better than anything else.

An important part of any Detox is Water intake. Aim to drink 2 litres of Natural bottled (not tap) water a day. In the first week drink half a litre a day, in the 2nd week drink 1 litre a day and from the third week on 2 litres a day (if you feel any pain in your tummy area, reduce the water intake, and if you are worried about the pain see your doctor). Obviously you will be peeing a lot more as you are drinking more!

How long should a Detox last? It’s a general suggestion to try the detox for at least a month. If you feel it’s of no benefit to you then simply go back to your own diet (re-introduce foods one at a time, one food item per week). I kept on the detox myself until I reached the point that I was feeling as good as I was going to feel (everyday I felt better than yesterday! And when that stagnated, it felt like I had detoxified ). But timewise, I actually did it for around two years and at that peak I felt the best I had ever felt, even better than when I was a kid! It's not just one element of your life it effects, it touches almost all aspects, mental wellbeing, physical health, concentration levels, intelligence etc etc

I hope this helps you as much as it helped me and I wish you lots of luck!!


Always make sure you get medical advice from your doctor before starting any new diet, the above is by no means any professional or recommended ‘advice’, it is just what I did myself and has been reproduced purely at the request of others.

Re: Detox: Feel how nature intended you to feel - Amazing!

Ok I will do this Azz! It will have to wait until end of July as I really want to do it the right way and I have a few life changing events before that. I believe you have to have your life in balance when you do something like this.
Thank you so much for posting this. My three concerns are coffee, beer and scotch...

Re: Detox: Feel how nature intended you to feel - Amazing!

I hope some of you guys try it Keep us posted if you do.

It does need a bit of will, but hey, we all have that - it's whether we decide to use it or not

If there is one thing I could 'force' people to do, it would be the detox for two months I know after that they'd carry on with it given how different they feel!

Jonas - Good luck

Re: Detox: Feel how nature intended you to feel - Amazing!

Well, I was going to try this, but seeing as I would no longer be able to dine on Dust Mites and Mixed Moulds, I shall giving this a wide berth.

Just out of interest, are those green dust mites or brown?

Re: Detox: Feel how nature intended you to feel - Amazing!

lol I was just about to post the link to this in the other thread (where you asked for tips ).

The detox isn't just about what you eat, hence why dust mites are in the avoid list

If you are relatively healthy and just want a boost, gimme a list of what you eat (everything) and I'll tell you what I would avoid or cut down on. Or, if you feel like shite (or anywhere close to it) I'd go on the detox as per this thread

Re: Detox: Feel how nature intended you to feel - Amazing!

Milk is good....and what's wrong with Oranges and Sprouts??

Anyway, my philosophy is eat what you want in moderation, never go hungry by having a piece of fruit or glass of water and exercise at least 30mins a day. You'll feel great. Oh and no carbs after 5pm, just watch that waistline shrink

There is up to a 90% chance you are lactose intolerant, depending on what part of the world you originate from. Welsh people are most susceptible than English people for example!

As your body can't digest lactose, it causes all sorts of problems - and the worst thing is, lactose is 'added' to lots of foods, because not only can it be used as a sweetener, it acts as a preservative too! And astonishingly the laws state that so long as an ingredient is less than 25% of the whole they don't have to declare it on the ingredients list !!! Hence why lactose has been found in many "100% orange juice from concentrate" products, and other food items you wouldn't normally expect milk content!!!

This is a subject very close to my heart - and it makes me very angry that not only how our food is produced, but how the government has not introduced 100% disclosure on food ingredients!! And is another reason why I like Marks & Spencers so much, because they do label their products with every ingredient, off their own backs - not because they have to.

My information comes from professors in medicine and specialists in medical biochemistry - not pseudo scientists.
