Has anybody tried BHS Detox mix???  There is only one customer review on BHS website for Detox mix.  I am interested to see if anyone has lost any weight.

Find Detox+ (http://www.bulkherbstore.com/DPM-2)
Yes, my husband has/is using it. I prefer to avoid psyllium due to past reactions and make a similar mix without that herb.

We prefer to use it along with a laxative and healing intestinal formula. I customized and mixed one similar to Dr. Shulze (http://www.welltellme.com/discuss/index.php/topic,20926.0.html) intestinal formula 1.

Weight loss would probably be a secondary benefit of having cleansed the body and allowing it to come back into balance. Perhaps a few pounds might leave immediately in cleansed old fecal matter from the intestines.

I have used it and think if anyone has any kind of digestive problems, skin problems, hormone problems, allergies, or basically anything chronic at all, they should try this stuff.  It's just as good as Dr. Schulze's bowel cleanse and 1/2 the price!!!

Here's a couple of write-ups on their blog.

I'm a huge fan and 'pusher' of Detox + (http://www.bulkherbstore.com/DPM-2?mv_pc=496).  The more research I've done and the more stories I hear about healing from cleansing, the more I become convinced that this product along with others like it (bentonite clay, activated charcoal, Dr. Schulze, etc.) may be one of the easiest most efficient ways to get started on a healthier 'you'.

My own personal experience (http://bulkherbstore.blogspot.com/2009/11/dermographism-what-on-earth-is-that.html) has been nothing short of AWESOME!  I was diagnosed with an 'incurable' condition which required medication that made me sick.  Without the meds I was incapacitated and close to insanity (itching will make one mad).  After reading some testimonials here on WTM about Dr. Schulze's bowel cleanse, I was ready to jump in.  The results were astounding and enough to convince me that charcoal and clay really ARE as effective as they say they are.  

It also got me to digging deeper.  I've found through speculation, research and a bit of trial and error, that so many other diagnoses (incurable diseases) might in fact be a result of the same toxcicity from which I was suffering.

My mother has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  Her medical profile is a mile long and the list of medications the doctor has prescribed is long and filled with more side effects and health disaster than how she started.  For instance one of the medications she takes for nerve pain is causing her fingernails to detach from the nail bed and fall off.  (great stuff  :-\ )

She is also in a great amount of pain, regardless of the pain meds.  Her blood pressure dips very low on occaissions.  She's frequently out of breath, has trouble standing for long periods of time and often needs use of railings and/or a cane to stabilize and help her walk.  She is often confused and tired.  She has ulcers and the list of symptoms goes on and on and on and on.

Anyway, I finally decided that she needed to try Detox + from BHS.  I called her, explained it to her and sent her the stuff.  She started the cleanse a few days ago.  The first day overwhelmed her and she was sick and vomitting.  The next day she decided to slow down a bit and yet continue.  She has continued taking 1-3 doses (I had her follow Dr. Schulze's instructions for his bowel cleanse) each day over the last few days.  I don't think she's done, nor do I think one cleanse will be enough for her.  We also need to get her on some supplments for healing after (cod liver oil, probiotics, l.glutamine, aloe, etc.), BUT in just a few short days, she's gone from being virtually invalid to being able to cook dinner for herself and a friend, clean her kitchen, take out her trash and wash her dishes without being winded or feeling dead.  

She and I are very hopeful and believe that the Detox + is doing exactly what I thought it would.  I believe that fibromyalgia (and many other unexplained or incurable diseases) are nothing more than a body so overloaded with toxins from overuse of medications (especially antidepressants, pain killers and antibiotics), over-consumption of processed foods, overexposure to a toxic water supply, toxins from our dishes and cookware, hygiene & feminine products (and on and on) that it cannot filter toxins and allow the immune and other systems to function as they were designed.

Imagine the filters on your heater and AC unit.  If you don't clean them and you put them in a dusty dirty room, they will eventually become so clogged, they will not function anymore.  I don't think your body is any different.  

I intend to post more after my mom sends me her notes.  We also have a couple of other friends in mind for the same course of action--one has fibromyalgia and the other lupus.  Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

I also happen to know a couple of other welltellers have some really good experiences to share that related to using these products.  I'd encourage them to post them here as well.

HB, I just got this for my son.  I have put it in “0” capsules for him.  I calculated that he needs 1 ½ tbls which is 12 capsules.  What I’m not sure about is if I should give him all 12 capsules at once or space it out 4 per meal?  I have acacia fiber I’m going to have him take at night to push things through quickly.  I was going to do this for seven days and see how he responds and then go from there.  I’m hoping to see some of his food allergies get better from this.  If it works for him we will be doing daddy next and so on.  Can you advise if he needs all 12 capsules at once or not?  I did call BHS and they told me putting it in capsules for kids was a great way to go so I know that part is okay. 

It is VERY exciting to hear how your mom is doing!  I totally agree that all of these auto-immune diseases today are nothing more then the body being totally toxic.  Clear the toxicity and you heal the body.

Shoshanna did the cleanse a different way than I did and got good results, but I personally based my dosage decisions on the advice of Dr. Schulze, mainly because I was introduced to his cleanse first and it worked.

Dr. Schulze says that the point of the cleanse is to keep the intestines coated on a constant basis.  If you take it all at once, it would be like swallowing a sponge and allowing it to pass through.  The sponge would pick up a goodly amount of stuff on it's way through, but it's only one pass.  Doing this daily would give 7 passes of the sponge.

Now imagine if you could swallow a long piece of cloth and continue to pull it through slowly all day long during the duration of the 7 days.  Imagine the coverage (surface area) of cleaning you would get-KWIM?

So, my point is that you can do it either way but I think it will be more efficient and more effective if you divide it into more doses.  If he's taking 12 pills you might break it into doses of 2 or 3 and give it 6 or 4 times a day spread as evenly between the waking hours as possible, leaving a morning gap (3 hours previous) for any needed meds or supplementation.

I took my fiber with supper every night and after 4 cleanses have found no reason to change this.

ALSO:  Just for a frame of reference for you.  I took 1 lb over the course of 10 days.  For one of the cleanses, I encapsulated enough for my entire cleanse.  Using the larger size capsules, I made 500 to last the entire 10 days, taking 10 per dose 5 times per day (50 pills per day).  This was equivalent to the amounts recommended on Dr. Schulze's 5 day cleanse.  I think this is optimum, but I am finding from my mother's experience, that some variance may be needed and I think any amount is helpful even if it's not quite enough.  A second cleanse can always be done at a later time if you didn't quite kick it the first time.

HB, this is VERY helpful!  I completely agree with the sponge/cloth analogy.  I was hoping to break his dosing up because quite frankly, that’s a lot of pills for a 10yr old.  He’s willing and able, I just had a preference for something less.  So I’ll do the all day long thing.  If I do 4 pills 3 times a day that leaves me just enough room for his other supplements which can’t be taken with each other or with anything cleansing stuff.  I am really hopeful this is going to yield some good results for him.  It took me ¼ lb. detox + in capsules for him to have enough so I still have another ¼  lb. if I want to repeat or use it for another kid. 

Thanks so much again!  This is good info.

I did Schulze's #2 5 day detox last about a week and a half ago.  It took more like 6 days, b/c of spacing doses b/w meals.  Yes, there were doses in the middle of the night.   ::)

My skin was already doing very well, so the results weren't so noticeable, but I'm glad I did it.

I used his #1 formula to "clear the way" and did that for 2 days prior (1/day).  I should have used 2/day when I started the cleanse b/c it went too slowly the 1st 2.5 days.   :o 

It was easy to do.  No weirdo effects, and nursing went fine.  There was nothing  :o  spooky  :o, either, shainalorraine.  ;)  Although, it did make me pretty tired--I fell asleep reading to the kids.   :-[  Some achiness in the upper neck/back, but that was it.

I'll do it again after a short rest to get nourished.   ;D

I'm not sure why she suggests not to do this.  I put mine in large capsules and had no problems with it.  Keep in mind that we did our cleanses differently and this might have something to do with it.

My guess would be that it is probably difficult to get an exact ratio/mixture in each pill, but the way I consumed it, this ratio would probably be of little consequence.

Bummer they are out of the stock on the Detox +, BUT I noticed that the BHS bentonite clay is like only $5.70 a lb verses like $25 or so for the detox +.  I'd love to do all the neat herbs in the d+ but right now if just the bentonite is an option that would be so awesome! Can I just buy that for good results?

It's just a precaution.  There's nothing in it, that I'm aware of that would be toxic.  The only consideration is doing a long term clay cleanse that could steal nutrients from mama and baby.  Dr. Schulze is only 5 days, Shoshanna's plan is over the course of several weeks.  Make sense?

I think if I were going to go stripped down basics, I would add in activated charcoal.  Clay is great for metals, but is not as effective at chemical type toxins.  Charcoal is great at toxins and not as good with metals.

Well, here's a good article with some suggestions for activated charcoal doses.

Easy Digestive System Cleanse To Help Your Body To Heal Itself

Almost all diseases begin in the digestive track.  This includes diabetes, asthma, cancer, alzheimer's, heart disease, memory loss, fibromyalgia, MS, and too many to even list here.  If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers to your recovery and healing, start here.  Your intestinal track is the origin of disease, and it is also the origin of your healing.  I cannot emphasize enough how important the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health.  Read below to learn how you can put yourself back on the path to health, by cleansing your digestive system.

This basic digestive system cleanse is suited for those who are new to intestinal cleanses, as well as you more experienced health advocates.  At the end of this article we also offer a place where you can order an excellent cleanse, if you want to have an extremely simple method to use.  Intestinal cleansing replaces colonics which only reach about the last 18 inches of your digestive system, and which do not cleans your body of the old fecal material that you have carried over the years.  Do not be fooled that colonics are enough.  They are only the dressing of health, and the creation of a disease cure.

The method listed below usually lasts a duration of  two to three weeks.  It is best to begin on a Friday, to allow your body time to adjust to the cleansing.

Here Are Your Cleansing Instructions

1.  Use Activated Charcoal ...

No.  Not out of your fireplace, you purchase it from your local health food store.  Activated charcoal binds intestinal toxins and unfriendly microbial growth and excretes them in the stools. 500-600 mg three times per day 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals and medication.

2.  Bentonite Clay & The Mother Of Scrubbers ...

If activated charcoal is unavailable, Bentonite clay can be used instead. Bentonite is a type of edible clay that acts as a bulk laxative by absorbing water to form a gel. It binds toxins such as pesticides and helps to carry them out of the colon. It can be found at the health food store. 1 tablespoon liquid Bentonite 2-3 times per day 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals and any of your medication.   Bentonite can pull out even long standing chemicals, like Agent Orange from the walls of the intestines.

3.  Psyllium  A Friend To Your Gut ...

You have heard people say, if you are constipated to eat more roughage.  Psyllium is a dietary fiber that helps your body to support normal bowel function.  Psyllium is the perfect bulk to use to push out old fecal material from the walls of your intestines, and it is especially helpful with the use It cleanses the mucus lining of the intestines and increases the bulk of the stools. 1 teaspoon Psyllium powder three times per day. Stir Psyllium into 8 oz water and drink immediately. Take with activated charcoal or if using Bentonite, stir it into the Psyllium water.  Psyllium can also be used on a routine basis to help keep you regular, outside of this cleanse.

4.  What The Heck Are Probiotics ???

The digestive tract maintains a balance between healthy and potentially harmful micro-organisms. Probiotics, the supplement form of healthy micro-organisms, have been used for many years to increase the proportion of protective bacteria and for the prevention and treatment of many health conditions. 1 capsule three times per day. Continue taking Probiotics for several weeks after the cleansing period is over. Here are some things to look for in a Probiotics supplement:

The most common strains of Probiotics are Lactobacillus acidophilus for the small intestine and Bifidobacterium bifidum for the large intestine. Look at your health food store for a combination of the two strains in one product.  Always use capsules when you buy supplements of any kind, as the compressed pills are not absorbed by the body, and go straight through un-used.  Capsules and tinctures are always best.

Probiotics should always be refrigerated before and after opening.
Do not be shy about using these, as you cannot overdose on them.
Each capsule or dose should contain more than 1 billion viable bacteria.  The minimum therapeutic dose is suggested to be 108-109 cells per day. More bacteria per capsule or dose is preferable, since the bacteria must survive during shelf life and then after ingestion, during transit through the acidic conditions of the stomach and hydrolytic enzymes and bile salts in the small intestine.

So it looks like a 2:1/ Bentonite to Activated Charcoal for the Dr. Schultz cleanse:

INTESTINAL FORMULA #2:

1. Take 2 parts - Flax Seed, 2 parts - Apple Fruit Pectin, 2 parts - Bentonite Clay, 7 parts - Psyllium Seeds with Husks (whole), 1 part - Slippery Elm Inner Bark Powder, 1 part - Marshmallow Root, 1 part - Peppermint Leaf, and 1 part - Activated Charcoal Powder.

2. Mix these Ingredients together.

3. Take 1 HEAPING tsp. and mix with 4-6 oz. of FRESH Juice.

4. Drink an additional 8-16 oz. of Water, after consuming the Juice Mixture.

5. Do 5 times per Day, REPEATING Steps 3 & 4.

NOTE: Make Intestinal Formulas #1 & #2, even if you are MISSING an Ingredient or two. Formula #2 should be used together with Formula #1 above. It will pull OLD Fecal Matter off the Walls of your Colon and out of ANY Bowel Pockets. It will also DRAW-OUT Parasites, Poisons, Toxins, Heavy Metals, and even Radioactive Materials. Formula #2 will actually REMOVE over 4,000 known Chemicals and Drug Residues.  :o

Detox+ is slightly different, but I'm sure the ratios are very close.

i started the detox + last sunday so i've been doing it for 11 days. i've been taking a tbs in juice once a day-sometimes first thing in the morning, sometimes before supper. i was planning on doing it till i ran out.
i am doing it to try and get my body healthy enough to get pregnant. have been trying for years... i don't know of any specific toxins. i'm just trying everything i can think of.
so, from what y'all are saying, i should take smaller doses maybe twice a day?
two more questions: i should ovulate by this weekend-should i lay off the detox+ and wait until i start to start taking it again? or it doesn't really matter? is it more beneficial to take it consistently over a long period of time or to stop and start with a few weeks in between? i was just going by shoshanna's story...
also, can i take the detox+ with meals or is it better on an empty stomach?
that's all for now. and, yes, i know that was more than two... ::)

I can't do phsyllium (or I'm still scared to because of previous allergic reaction) so just do bentonite clay and charcoal capsules. We get plenty of fiber and pectin in our diet and I use a home mixed #1 formula to keep things moving. Seems to do the same thing to me that Detox+ does for dh.

it does NOT have enough fiber.  experience has shown me.  you need alot of extra fiber to help push through the amount of charcoal and especially clay through your digestive tract.  clay will expand to several times it's volume when water is added.

We just got ours and I started this morning.  Hubby is doing it with me, but he wasn't home this morning.  :-)  I did 1 TBSP of the Detox+ and 1 TBSP psyllium husks with it.  From reading, I think I am going to switch it up and do smaller amounts 3 times a day or so instead, but for today, is that enough fiber?  Should I keep doing more fiber throughout the day even though the Detox+ is done for today?  Or should I only take the fiber as often as I take the Detox+?  Any thoughts?

HB - that is such great news about your mom!!  I have been very encouraged reading this thread!

We just got ours and I started this morning.  Hubby is doing it with me, but he wasn't home this morning.  :-)  I did 1 TBSP of the Detox+ and 1 TBSP psyllium husks with it.  From reading, I think I am going to switch it up and do smaller amounts 3 times a day or so instead, but for today, is that enough fiber?  Should I keep doing more fiber throughout the day even though the Detox+ is done for today?  Or should I only take the fiber as often as I take the Detox+?  Any thoughts?

HB - that is such great news about your mom!!  I have been very encouraged reading this thread!
monitor and change your fiber intake according to your normal bathroom habits.  if they are normally healthy and regular and do not continue to be, then you're not getting enough fiber.  if you are normally constipated, then you'll need enough fiber to make you go easily 2-3 times each day.

ok, i've been using the Dr. Schulze #2 for a little over 24 hours.  baby is fussier right after & during feeding.  he squirms around a lot, slurps & gulps a lot, and it's hard to tell cuz he was already gassy, but it seems he has more. and he still burps for hours after eating & a lot of times burps get stuck. we've been using fennel seed tea some.  my hubby is encouraging me to continue, thinking that at some point he will start to improve.  i am wondering if it is the cayenne pepper in the formula?  i just ordered BHS detox+ & it doesn't have the cayenne.  hoping that change will help him not be so fussy.  any thoughts on any of the other herbs that could be bothering him?

I just did #2 a month ago and m/b the first day was affecting him similarly, but he actually improved as I took it.

I don't think cayenne would do anything like that?

Are you using the #1 to stay regular?

ok, i'm taking fiber instead like HB did,  cuz i thought with all the spices in the #1 that might make him fussy.  hmmm......well, i had taken some this am, but started to chicken out cuz he really seems so different from his usual self.  he gets so mad when i try to burp him, and won't look at us and smile after nursing like he was.  he seems to be in pain and just goes off to sleep with me holding him.  won't be put down to sleep either.  i will keep it up and see if tomorrow is any better.  thanks!

After looking at the ingredients for #1 and #2, I'd think the stuff in #1 could be more troublesome for a little one:

"Curaçao & Cape Aloe Leaf, Senna Leaf & Pod, Cascara Sagrada Aged Bark, Oregon Grape Root, Hawaiian Yellow Ginger Root, Garlic Bulb, Habanero Peppers"

I would think cramping could be a possibility here.

I actually think the BHS cleanse would be better with feeding baby.  The ingredients in it seem much less harsh.  We had good success with DS with it.  The only fiber I used was a tbls of acacia fiber in applesauce.  DS didn't need anymore; but he goes a lot anyway.  So maybe you would need more.

Detox +:  Bentonite clay powder, apple fruit pectin, flax seed, psyllium seed, slippery elm bark powder, marshmallow root powder, bilberry fruit powder, peppermint leaf powder, activated charcoal powder.

Schulze's #2:  Flax Seed, Pharmaceutical-Grade Bentonite Clay, Apple Pectin, Activated Willow Charcoal, Marshmallow Root, Psyllium Seed, Slippery Elm Bark, Peppermint Leaf, Cayenne Pepper Blend

Patti--what are the differences, as you see them, b/w the 2?

I was thinking the amounts of each ingredient.  Wondering if there's more of some ingredients in Dr. Schulze's that make it more aggravating to baby?  May not be, but if #2 has more of each thing or something stronger of one thing then another it could be more aggravating to baby.  I would think cayenne would be horribly aggravating to a baby.  Ingredients are usually listed according to what there is more of.  The flax seed to me, would cause more gas, burps, etc.  #2 has more of it, if it's posted as most ingredients are with it having more then detox+.  So it could just be the amounts of each ingredient combined that are an issue for baby. 

Maybe not.  Was just my thought - but I didn't type that very well the first time did I?    ::) :P :-\

Detox + will pull other things out.  Probably best to do it first and everything else later.  if he needs vitamins, cod liver oil and such, take these 3 hours or more before the detox+ each day.

ALSO:  Just for a frame of reference for you.  I took 1 lb over the course of 10 days.  For one of the cleanses, I encapsulated enough for my entire cleanse.  Using the larger size capsules, I made 500 to last the entire 10 days, taking 10 per dose 5 times per day (50 pills per day).  This was equivalent to the amounts recommended on Dr. Schulze's 5 day cleanse.  I think this is optimum, but I am finding from my mother's experience, that some variance may be needed and I think any amount is helpful even if it's not quite enough.  A second cleanse can always be done at a later time if you didn't quite kick it the first time.

so how much did you take per dose & how many times per day to make the one lb. last for 10 days?

I'm not HB, but thought I'd tell you how I did it for my DS.  BHS recommends 1 tbls for adults and 1/2 that for children per day.  I took the 1/2 tbls for my DS and put it on my capsule maker (capsules in place).  Filled as many capsules as I could with it and then calculated from there how many capsules I would need per day.   It ended up being 12 capsules per day for my DS.  I assume that would mean 24 per day for an adult using "00" capsules.  It worked out really well and we had plenty.  The 1/2 lb from BHS only used half for DS so I would imagine it would take the entire 1/2 lb for an adult (although it looks like HB used more).  I used BHS recommendations, not Dr. Schulze so that could be the difference.

HA!  My hubby did that.  We've been on it now for 9 days.  When we started, I told him to do one teaspoon three times a day.  I found out a few days later that he had been doing a tablespoon 3 times a day from the get go.  He just used the spoon in the jar, but didn't bother to check to see what the size was.  :D  Didn't seem to bother him any.  But we did have a good laugh about that one.

My husband used it 4x. I think he did 10 days the first time, but we felt that was a bit long. He now uses it for 3-5 days depending on why he's using it with several weeks (2-4) break in between. I'd recommend not more than one detox cycle per month.
He's feeling so good!!

This formula works really well for "cleaning up" the body after illness or a lapse in diet such as when traveling. 1-3 days is great. Just follow it up with nourishing foods and whole food supplements for rebuilding.

He uses a heaping tsp. each dose. Some days he gets it 3x which makes about a tbsp. Sometimes 5x which would be more. Often, if he takes it just to "clean up" after eating away from home it's just 2 doses- morning and evening.

We noticed that after 6 days or so he seemed to be nutrient deficient---not hydrating even while drinking plenty of water and hydration formulas, and magnesium deficiencies symptoms even while supplementing with magnesium.
By day 10 digestion was definitely impaired even though fecal movement was good. It took several days with enzyme and probiotic supplementation to get digestion back on track.

Awhile ago I ordered some charcoal and bentonite clay from the BHS (they were out of the detox +) and I'd like to use it but was wondering about dosage. The BHS was so kind to send me this info that I thought would be helpful to others:

"Throw in some clay, some charcoal, some flax seed and some psyllium and whatever other herbs you think are necessary.  Mix well and put in capsules.  In her 2nd video Shoshanna, mixes about equal parts of charcoal, clay, psyllium and flax for suspending in water to drink...Also, be sure you get enough fiber.  If you take your mixture (whatever it is) and you're not regular in the bathroom, you'll cause more problems than you solve."

Q. Does anyone know how many of the capsules I should take a day and how often?

They kindly offered to answer anymore questions I have, but I thought I would ask here first. I would greatly appreciate any advice! Thank you.

: DHW October 02, 2010, 04:21:14 PM
I used '0' capsules and was able to fill 5 for every teaspoon of Detox+.  Depends on how much you want to take, but Shoshanna recommended 1-2 tbsp per day.  For me that would be 15-30 capsules a day in divided doses.

I think HB said she took about 50 capsules a day (10 capsules, 5x daily).  It was equivalent to a heaping teaspoon 5 times a day for 10 days.  It used up the entire pound.

There are about 20 tbsp in a pound of Detox+, enough for about 300 size '0' capsules - up to 10 days worth.

Size '00' would make about half the number of filled capsules since they hold almost twice as much.

i started the detox + last sunday so i've been doing it for 11 days. i've been taking a tbs in juice once a day-sometimes first thing in the morning, sometimes before supper. i was planning on doing it till i ran out.
i am doing it to try and get my body healthy enough to get pregnant. have been trying for years... i don't know of any specific toxins. i'm just trying everything i can think of.
two more questions: i should ovulate by this weekend-should i lay off the detox+ and wait until i start to start taking it again? or it doesn't really matter? is it more beneficial to take it consistently over a long period of time or to stop and start with a few weeks in between? i was just going by shoshanna's story...


I was just wondering if you got an answer about if it's ok to detox during your fertile period?  If you did get pregnant that cycle and you're detoxing is it somehow harmful to the pregnancy?  I was going to buy mine soon but am TTC also so wondering if it's better to wait?  I'd love to start Detox+ asap so I'm good to go for pregnancy when it does happen.  :)

Also wondering if I should continue taking my SuperMoms while I detox or not?  Don't wanna waste them if they're just going to be flushed out!   ;)

A detox will pull valuable nutrients from your body, no matter how gentle is is. You will need to give yourself a period of nourishing yourself after the cleanse before ttc. I've read at least three months.

i saw all kinds of improvement with my mother.  i encouraged her to take a break of a few weeks to make sure she didn't get too malnourished and then do a second round.  unfortunately, she only took a spoonful the second time.  i think she didn't take enough to bind the toxins and so she became very sick (vomiting) and chickened out.  she has no intentions of doing any more;however, i watched her go from a complete invalid to washing her own dishes, vaccuming her own floor, etc.  she was improving by leaps and bounds, but refused to give up her medications, so after several months began to decline again.

i am convinced that detox+ helps with fibromyalgia, but it's a true leap of faith.  the good news is that detox+ is cheap, easy and it can't hurt no matter what you've got wrong with you.  i've already seen it heal dermographism, eczema, and other digestive issues.  so long as you're able to stick with it, i would recommend it to anyone who has health issues.

What do you mean that your mother "didn't take enough to bind the toxins" - do you have to increase the amount over time or can you just take the same amount over a longer time?  I've been using for the past few weeks - not seeing a whole lot of changes, but then again, don't have a specific issue I am trying to cure.

i mean she took a couple of small spoonfuls over a span of a couple three days.  she's so toxic, i think she knocked some stuff lose and didn't get it all out of her body.  i don't really know--i'm no doctor or scientist.  i just know that the first round did her some good--i witnessed the difference and now she's getting worse and refuses to take more than that couple of spoonfuls she took a few weeks ago.

Must say, I can understand.  I used a whole pound of it, but never got over the dread of taking it.  I mixed it with an orange flavored fiber mix AND some tart cherry syrup.  It was just the texture that was awful.  Have another friend who took it and thought nothing of it.  Too bad it  doesn't work in capsules.

I called BHS and they told me okay to encapsulate.  So I did.  Seems to be working for my DS. 

If you go back to page one of this thread you see this.  There is also something about someone else called BHS and they said encapsulating for kids was a great way to go.  I know that I wouldn't do it again if I had to just make the powder drinks.  It was torturous for me.  This time I plan to encapsulate and then take it in doses through the day, instead of taking it all at once just to get it over with!

I just figured they said it couldn't be encapsulated bc of the whole flax seeds.  Seems like those would be difficult to get in the capsules, and then you'd have to take a ton of capsules to get a good dosage of it.  The grittiness of it is kinda yuck, but we drank it in OJ and that hid the taste really well.  My kids didn't mind it at all that way.  But if it works for you then it's definitely better to do it that way than not at all.  ;) :D

I just figured they said it couldn't be encapsulated bc of the whole flax seeds.  Seems like those would be difficult to get in the capsules, and then you'd have to take a ton of capsules to get a good dosage of it.  The grittiness of it is kinda yuck, but we drank it in OJ and that hid the taste really well.  My kids didn't mind it at all that way.  But if it works for you then it's definitely better to do it that way than not at all.  ;) :D

i encapsulated it for myself; however, I was taking 50 pills per day (total of 500 pills).  if you did it according to shoshanna's directions, you'd be taking much less.  this might make a difference in how "even" the stuff works out.  the flax seeds to make things a bit uneven, but overall as much as i was taking, i don't think it made a bit of difference.

I have also put it in capsules with great success!
Wow, HB, I haven't been on in forever and I remember the results you got from the bowel cleanse. I am so happy you are still doing so great! I LOVE the Schulze bowel cleanse, we have had such awesome results as well. It is nice to get the detox+ cheaper, but I always keep the formula #1 in stock bc I love the results.

I just bought the colon clease kit from BHS and was wondering what to expect after I take the first dose.  I've never done a cleanse before and I'm a bit nervous.  Thanks!

Is it ok to do this cleanse while pregnant?  I am 6 1/2 months.  I have been so sick during this pregnancy with just one thing after another, and I cannot seem to get over the 1st trimester nausea.

If you're pregnant, I'd simply use the bentonite clay in a capsule. It actually works quite well on both illness and nausea. Your body will naturally work on the detox, but the clay will pull and urge it out of the body.
Plenty of water while taking. And the plain bentonite is safe to use.
Red rasberry tea also works wonders for those expecting. God Bless!

Can someone tell me if it's ok to take the dr.schultzes bowel detox's capsules apart and put the contents in the water to drink it?  I started the cleanse a while ago, but stopped because I just can't take all those pills.  I didn't realize that I could of ordered it in powdered form.  Can I just empty those pills into water and drink it?

thanks
wendy

Am I allergic to Dr. Schulze's5 day bowel detox?

Let me explain... I followed the directions for the cleanse and took one of the intestinal formula #1 right after dinner 2days ago. After breakfast (smoothie with coconut milk, spinach, blueberries, banana) the next morning I had major diarrhea which continued all day long right after I ate anything. That night I developed a headache. I went ahead and took one intestinal formula #1 because I had planned to start intestinal formula #2 the next day (today). My headache got progressively worse throughout the evening and by the time I went to bed it was a migraine. I couldn't sleep for 2 hours so I took 2 tylenol. The headache was explosive and was right above my left eye. After much prayer and with a cold wash cloth over my eyes I finally got to sleep. I did wake up this morning with a tiny headache. I delayed the formula #2 because of changes I had to make in my schedule today. It is around supper time now and my headache is starting to grow.  :-[ Will starting the #2 help because it will soak up toxins? Could I be having an allergic reaction to the #1? Has anyone had a reaction like this? Is it normal? I should mention that I had around 88 ounces of water or more throughout the day yesterday.
Any help/advice would be appreciated!
