The Float Tank Experience – What You Need To Understand and No One Tells You

In digging all I found all over the internet were people who loved the experience. I was perplexed.  I had been looking forward to this for years. I finally went and felt very let down.

Going in I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect other than that I would love it. I meditate regularly and deeply and have for years. I arrived, and the salon is lovely. Very zen and relaxing. Beautifully done dressing area and individual private float pod rooms. I did as instructed, went into my room, locked the door, and proceeded to take a shower with soap and shampoo to ready myself to float.

Upon getting in the pod I think my skin must have been kind of dry because I felt a salt sting like the ocean. The water was a nice warm temperature and easy to recline into. During my first float, I spent time trying to maneuverer a comfortable position and couldn’t seem to find one. I tried the neck float rest, then removed it. I splashed water in my eye (that hurts quite a bit), once I got into the float, I couldn’t shut my usually silent brain off.

Laying there in silence it seemed an eternity. As I had no markers for time I kept kind of almost anxiously waiting for the music to come back on to signal exit. I felt tingles in my muscles and twinges where I am healing from an injury.

By the time I was just about finally relaxed and beginning to possibly get into it, time was up. I got out, showered, and proceeded to the relaxation area and oxygen bar which was lovely.

We did sign up for another float because my husband had a very good experience. So we still had 2 more on file to use.

The next day I woke up and felt terrible. As if someone had beat me up in my sleep. My everything was sore. As I awoke I also found that I was very overly emotional for no reason and just felt bad.

I didn’t understand what had happened.

I spoke with my Naturopathic Physician who explained that this reaction is actually normal. What was happening was a detoxification healing crisis along with a drop in my cortisol (stress hormone) level. It would pass and was actually for my best and highest good even if it sucked at the moment.

In understanding this: I bravely (or stupidly depending on who you ask) went back again to float yesterday. This time? It was more familiar. I moisturized well all week so there was no itching. My earplugs were in place this time before the shower so they fit well, and I used the Vaseline given on my lips and right at the corner of my eyes.

I also had them put on some meditation music rather than silence for the time. I laid back and chose the most comfortable position I had found and this time surprisingly I relaxed in only a few minutes and had a wonderful meditative experience. I felt as if I was being suspended and fully supported in warm jello. It was amazing!

The zapping feeling in my muscles while in mediation encased my damaged areas. I believe that was healing I was experiencing. I stayed in for most of the time, getting out 15 minutes early when I started feeling stiff. (I didn’t want to push it or experience what I had before).

This time I felt some zaps and painful zings in the middle of the night deep inside my bones. It felt like pain leaving my body, even if I had to experience it as it left this one last time. What exactly was detoxifying, I could not tell you.

We will be going back again. I am very glad I pushed through and asked for answers to understand what had happened to me.

I fully believe this is good for my health and eventually floats will be totally pain-free as will I.


I hope this helps someone should you experience something similar, because I could not find anything online anything like my float.

Mind blowing new way to look at health and healing!

While this may not be news to everyone it certainly will be to most.

We have been trained, as the general public, to believe that germs, viruses and bacteria cause illness. They are the enemy. As well as that the cure is almost always antibiotics, medications and prevention through sanitizing everything under the sun including ourselves.

 In reality this is not the truth.

We live in a world filled with germs, bacteria and live viruses. If merely coming in contact with them would always cause us to be sick, we would be sick all the time.

I am a huge fan of internal cleansing. I do them several times a year and strongly feel a great benefit from them. During these cleanses you experience what I had been calling “Herxheimer Reactions” & “Die Off Symptoms” – These apparently are incorrect terms created by the Western medical industry in order to further the use of pharmaceuticals.  

This article by Bee Wilder explains in depth the truth about germs, viruses , how your internal healing system works, as well as antibiotics, antifungal drugs, what a Herxheimer reaction really is and that die off symptoms are really your body being poisoned, often by the medications supposedly given to you to help, as well as the food we eat and the things we come in contact with on a daily basis. In the act of expelling those poisons – symptoms you experience are actually a good sign, created by nature in order to help you heal…. We have been taking the wrong approach over all to healing… you cannot kill off, force out, burn off or get rid of.. you must build the immune system.

This is an amazing and eye opening article…

I sincerely hope you read on.

Sincerely, Sarah

 Die-Off Symptoms & Herxheimer Reactions Are Fabricated Terms

The term “die-off symptoms” is commonly used to describe symptoms and reactions that occur when large numbers of candida/fungi, viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens [viruses, bacteria, etc. that cause disease] are killed off in the body, releasing a lot of toxins into the system at one time by antibiotics or antifungals, etc. Such symptoms are described as “flu-like”, the feeling that one gets when parasites, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens are killed in the body and being cleaned out of the body. These “flu-like” symptoms are also cleansing (detoxing) reactions, caused by the body isolating and getting rid of toxins. These symptoms include increased mucus secretions in all mucus membranes (nose, throat, sinuses, lungs, vagina, intestines, etc.) and muscle or joint aches and pains, headaches, brain fog, digestion disturbances and so on. It’s like that “bad all over feeling” you had during a bout with the flu. Such die-off symptoms are “Herxheimer reactions,” also called Herx reactions. However, die-off symptoms and “Herxheimer reactions” “assume” that the Germ Theory of Disease is true, so the medical field had to fabricate (make up) such terms in order to make us believe antibiotics were actually killing off bacteria, however, that isn’t at all true!

Why the Term “Herxheimer Reaction” was Fabricated

The term “Herxheimer reaction” was fabricated by Karl Herxheimer (1861-1942) and Adolf Jarisch (1850-1902), also known as the “Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction.” The reason the term was created was in order to describe what occurs when large quantities of toxins are released into the body as viruses, bacteria, candida, etc. die-off when treated by antibiotics or antifungal drugs, antifungals, etc. that “supposedly” kills them off. “They claim” antibiotics cause bugs to die, i.e. be killed off, which causes bugs to release large numbers of toxins faster than the body can remove the toxins by natural detoxification processes. They also say: “Such reactions includes fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, cold-like and flu-like symptoms with increased mucus, and an increase in skin rashes and eruptions.” But note this! They also say “The intensity of the reaction reflects the intensity of inflammation present.” NOTE: That statement is your biggest clue to the truth! Of course the medical field “had to dream up” something that explains such adverse reactions to antibiotics!

The Truth About Die-Off Symptoms & Herxheimer Reactions

The truth is that die-off symptoms and Herxheimer Reactions are not caused by bugs being killed off or dying. What is actually happening in the body is in the statement above, i.e. “The intensity of the reaction reflects the intensity of inflammation present.” The fact IS that inflammation is a natural immune system reaction to the presence of toxins, and antibiotics and antifungal drugs are toxic/poisonous to the body! Therefore, any symptoms and reactions are caused by the body itself, which is evidence it is working trying hard to detoxify antibiotic toxins. Such symptoms and reactions are “NOT caused” by killing off bugs at all. They are created by the body in response to toxins/poisons like it reacts to any kinds of toxins or poisons, therefore such reactions are because of being poisoned! The body creates symptoms and reactions (inflammation) in response to all toxins/poisons, i.e. drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vaccines, mercury fillings in teeth, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals in foods, personal care and cleaning products, etc. In other words, the body works hard at minimizing the damage caused by toxins/poisons such as antibiotics and other drugs by creating inflammation and other immune responses in order to get rid of the poison. However, our governments allow big businesses (medical, drug, food, agricultural, etc.) to poison people legally by allowing toxins/poisons to be used!

How the Body Reacts to Poisons/Toxins

Poisons are defined as any substance that causes injury, illness or death of a living organism. Here’s a list of the general symptoms of poisoning:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea (diarrhea)
  • stomach pain
  • drowsiness, dizziness or weakness
  • fever and chills (shivering)
  • loss of appetite
  • headache or irritability
  • difficulty swallowing
  • producing more saliva than normal
  • skin rash
  • double or blurred vision
  • seizures (fits)
  • coma (in severe cases).

Do you see the similarity between poisoning symptoms to “so-called” die-off or Herxheimer Reactions? It was difficult to find general poison reactions since many references are for specific kinds of poisons like mercury, arsenic, carbon monoxide, rat poison, food poisoning, etc. However you don’t have to look far to find poisoning symptoms which are described as “side-effects” of all drugs! Are you starting to get the picture of what is actually happening? The University of Mains Farm Safety Program lists reactions to mild, moderate or severe poisoning: Mild Poisoning – Headache, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, restlessness, perspiration, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, loss of weight, thirst, moodiness, soreness in joints, skin irritation, eye irritation. Moderate Poisoning – Severe nausea, severe diarrhea, excessive saliva, stomach cramps, excessive perspiration, trembling, no muscle coordination and muscle twitches, extreme weakness, mental confusion, blurred vision, difficulty in breathing, cough, rapid pulse, flushed or yellow skin, weepy eyes. Severe Poisonings – Fever, intense thirst, increased rate of breathing, uncontrollable muscle twitches, pinpoint pupils, convulsions, inability to breathe, unconsciousness. The similarity between poisoning symptoms and reactions to die-off or Herxheimer symptoms and reactions is unmistakable!

The Body Heals & Detoxifies Itself by Creating Inflammation (Infection)

As stated by Henry Lindlahr in Nature Cure: “Inflammation and fevers are just as natural, orderly and lawful as anything else in Nature, that, after they have once started, they must not be checked or suppressed by poisonous drugs and surgical operations.” He goes on to say: “In former chapters I endeavored to prove and to elucidate [make more clear] the unity of acute diseases in regard to their causes and their purpose, the latter not being destructive, but constructive and beneficial. I demonstrated that the microorganisms of disease are not the . . . nuisance and evil which they are commonly regarded, but that, like everything else in Nature, they, too, serve a useful purpose. I showed that it depends upon ourselves whether their activity is harmful and destructive, or beneficial: upon our manner of living and of treating acute reactions.

What IS Inflammation (Infection)

Henry Lindlahr goes on to explain inflammation: “To me the story of inflammation has been one of the most wonderful revelations [to reveal or make known] of the complex activities of the human organism. More than anything else it confirms to me the fundamental principles of Nature Cure, the fact that Nature is a good healer, not a poor one. Before inflammation can arise, there must exist an exciting cause in the form of some obstruction or of some agent inimical [harmful] to health and life. Such excitants of inflammation may be dead cells, blood clots, fragments of bone and other effete matter [waste products] produced in the system itself or they may be foreign bodies such as particles of dust, soot, stone, iron or other metals, slivers of wood, etc. When one or more of these exciting agents of inflammation are present in the tissues of the body in sufficient strength, [they] call forth the reaction and opposition by the body’s healing forces.”

What Happens during Inflammation [Infection]

Blood rushes to the area of irritation, with its nutrients and healing substances, including white blood cells, which causes increased blood pressure, swelling, redness and pain. Infection

  • “Germs do not become toxic until they get into a toxic environment.”
  • Infection or sepsis is generated by the decomposition–fermentation and putrefaction–of dead animal and vegetable substances and secretions. We hold to the theory of the Unity of Infection. Infection is due to the absorption of decaying animal or vegetable matter and is always the same in whatever part of the body it takes place.
  • The deadly germ on the hands, lips, drinking cups, hanging straps of street cars– in fact, found anywhere and everywhere–is not deadly until it gets mixed up with man’s deadly, dirty, filthy physical and mental habits.” Germs do not become toxic until they get into a toxic environment.
  • Before a morbid process can evolve, the power of the part or of the body as a whole to generate its own immunizing agents must be broken down or overwhelmed.

Resistance & Immunity

  • “The whole immunizing theory is a vicious circle, and is annulled by the facts that when people do not live in a manner to enervate and check elimination, they do not become infected; and when infected, if they overcome enervation they rid themselves of infection, and stay rid of it.”
  • Malnutrition always causes lowered resistance and it is safe to say that no person ever suffers from “infections” and “contagions” who has been adequately nourished.
  • Some “infections” are said to confer immunity; some make one more susceptible; some confer lasting immunity; others confer immunity for only a limited time; some confer full immunity; others only make future “attacks” less severe. It is doubtful that biologic law is so chaotic as this indicates. I prefer to think there is something wrong with the theory.

What is “Immunity?”

  • The theory that “disease” immunizes against itself is very old, having existed in folk-lore for ages. There is not the slightest evidence that it is true, but the medical profession has accepted it and built a very remunerative practice thereon.
  • We contend that it is health–that health gives the best immunity against “bacterial diseases.”
  • The gist of the whole theory [immunity theory], and both the ancient logical but barbaric and the modern scientific practices based thereon, is that, in order to be immune to “disease,” we must first become “diseased,” or, as it is now taught, have an animal become “diseased” for us–a form of vicarious salvation. Immunity, in this theory, does not depend on health, nor upon the causes of health, but upon “disease” and the causes of “disease.”
  • The truth in a nutshell is that the so-called infections are autogenerated (generated by the body itself), and are avoidable by rational healthy living.

What we call pus is made up of the bodies of live and dead white blood cells, blood serum, broken-down tissues and cells, in short, the debris of the battlefield. We can now understand how the processes just described produce the well-known symptoms of inflammation and infection. We can also realize how lack of nutrition, poisons/toxins, and obstruction and destruction in the affected parts and organs interferes with and inhibits normal healing and detoxifying activity.

Facts about Germs (viruses, bacteria, fungus/candida and cancer)

  • “germs live off of dead matter”
  • “In the septic tank, sewerage is reduced by them [germs] until it finally passes out pure water in which fish may live.”
  • “they [germs] are purifying and beneficial agents”
  • “Germs do not, cannot, attack healthy tissue. They are . . . scavengers, and are busily engaged in reducing dead organic matter to the dust from whence it came.”
  • “From the stand-point of Natural Science, germs cannot be regarded as the cause of “disease,” for, if they are, we should all be the victims of one or more germs at all times.”
  • “If bacteria can attack and kill healthy tissues, organs and organisms, then it should not be long before these bacteria shall have destroyed all the higher forms of life and have the world to themselves.”
  • “If the bungling “scientific” man does not stop the natural flow of healing serum with antibiotics, drugs, antiseptics, surgery, and obstructive dressings, healing will be done by “Nature’s way.”
  • When digestion is normal, the bacillus is utilized as food along with the lobster. All of the digestive juices are germicidal and normal digestion digests germs as readily as it does apples or bread.”
  • “[a germ] attempts to assist in the removal of undesirable material by liquifying it.”
  • “Bacterial toxins are metabolic products of bacterial activity, their character being determined by the feeding habits of the patient.”
  • “The germ is a busy body waiting everywhere for organic matter to give him a job by fertilizing the soil in which he likes to play and work.”
  • “If in diphtheria, the bacillus (actual bug) is not found, the illness is renamed something else,” says the Encyclopedia Britannica.
  • “If germs cause “disease” why don’t they produce “disease” in a healthy body?”
  • “How foolish, then, to look for the “infectious agent” and ignore the circumstances which disarm the body against microbic invasion. It is difficult to understand why a whole profession has gone insane on the subject of germs, to the utter neglect of those states of metabolism and nutrition which when vitiated, constitute the open sesame to germ invasion.”
  • The researchers have falsely and wickedly heralded the fear-engendering story that the world is teeming with a host of vicious microscopical and ultra-microscopical beings against which no amount of integrity is a shield and the ravages of which we can escape only by placing ourselves in bondage–a servitude born of fear–to the man with the squirt gun and hollow needle.
  • An unreasoning way to rid the victim of germs and parasites is to destroy them with germicides and parasiticides. After killing them off what is to be done about the habitat–the patient? The belief that germs can be killed inside the body is untenable, for any chemical that destroys micro-organisms also destroys the body. Even if medical men are still trying to kill “venereal germs” with drugs, the fact still remains that they damage their patients more than they do the germs.
  • Neither the pueumococcus nor the tubercle baccillus (TB) can be killed in situ [on location]; but if they could, what of it? To kill or remove a natural effect leaves the cause as active as before, if not more so. So, nothing is really gained.
  • There is much evidence to show that the use of germicides [antibiotics, antifungals, etc.] actually lowers resistance to germs. One example will suffice. Carbolic acid kills germs– human blood kills germs. But if carbolic acid is added to blood, it destroys the blood’s defenses so that germs grow more rapidly.

Only Nature Can Provide the Cure

Nature does not suppress the growth and multiplication of disease germs until the morbid matter on which they subsist (live off of) has been decomposed and consumed, and until the inflammatory [infection] processes have run their course. Drugs, antibiotics, vaccines, etc. given in powerful doses at different stages of any disease can stop and suppress germ activity and the processes of inflammation and infection before healing and detoxification has run its natural course, and before the morbid (dead) matter has been eliminated. Therefore, viruses, bacteria, fungus/candida and even cancer cannot be cured by “killing them off” or by “trying to get rid of them” by burning, surgery, etc. They are only cured by building up the immune system, which is done by:

  1. Consuming “proper nutrients” that all human bodies must have in order to be healthy.
  2. Eliminating toxins and foods that feed viruses, bacteria, fungus/candida and cancer.
  3. Eliminating damaging foods.
  4. Eliminating toxins in general.

When the immune system is strong enough it automatically “makes” any bug change back into the organism they are supposed to be when the body is healthy. For more information see The Germ Theory of Disease is False and The Antibody Theory is False. It is like the manure pile and the flies, with the manure pile representing the poor condition of the body. You cannot get rid of the manure pile by killing off the flies. You must clean up the manure pile instead, which means building up your immune system (as above).

Dextoxing – What is a Herxheimer Reaction?

You have made the decision to get healthier. You decide on a cleanse and are mentally prepared to take the herbs, consume the potions, use the essential oils, drink all that water, and whatever else comes with it. What most are not prepared for is suddenly feeling under the weather out of the blue. It didn’t say anything about this on the label or in the advertising. So, why do you sometimes feel sick when you do an internal cleanse or detox?

It’s called a Herxheimer reaction. Herxheimer reactions are a result of inflammation in the body. When you do a detox, it allows your body to release old bacteria, viruses, and toxins which are harmful to your system and need to be flushed out in order for you to truly be in a state of health.

During a cleanse, the herbs, essential oils, vitamins and minerals are specially combined to kill off bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxins and to dislodge old putrefied food and materials that have built up in the body and in the cells. The reaction occurs when injured or dead bacteria/viruses are released allowing the decomposing endotoxins into the blood and tissue faster than the body can handle comfortably.

This provokes an inflammatory response which presents itself in an over exaggerated form of whatever the original illness was.

For example, if you still have flu virus in your body, you will feel temporarily like you have the flu. You may feel feverish, have a headache or just feel very run down. It may come and go but will pass usually in a matter of hours or days.

Knowing this is a possibility going in to a cleanse makes it far easier to deal with. In many cases, people unaware of what a Herxheimer reaction is and have assumed that the detox itself was making them sick, so of course stop the cleanse when what was really needed was more water and to keep going allowing release and clearing.

The most common symptoms reported in a Herxheimer reaction are increased fatigue, joint or muscle pain, skin rashes, photosensitivity, irritability, dizziness, sleep disturbances, asthenia, muscle cramps, night sweats, hypertension, hypotension, headaches (especially migraines) and swollen glands. Also reported are heavy perspiration, metallic taste in mouth, chills, nausea, bloating, constipation or diarrhea, low grade fever, heart palpitations, tachycardia, facial palsy, tinnitus, mental confusion, uncoordinated movement, bone pain, flu-like syndrome, conjunctivitis and throat swelling.

Please don’t let this scare you away from doing internal cleanses… These symptoms present themselves most often during parasite and candida cleanses. You will only have a reaction IF your body has candida or parasites in it. If it does not, the herbs will simply pass through.

The Herxheimer reaction may be unpleasant temporarily, but it is just temporary. Clearing your body allows it to run properly preventing sickness and disease down the road. The inconvenience is well worth the outcome.

BePure 21 Day Cleanse – Heal Your Body from the Inside!

UPDATE JUNE 26, 2017
 as a replacement! Visit https://www.vitopia.biz/


 

UPDATE : BePure is no longer available thanks to the FDA. One more wonderful and effective product pulled due to big pharma and red tape.


Over the years I have tried all kinds of internal cleanses. Psyllium husks, Herbal Fiber Blend (which claimed to be raspberry flavored, but just tasted like potting soil to me), Colon Blow (that was a rough one), Oxypowder (using the power of oxygen), Candida cleanses, Parasite cleanses, Juice cleanses, water fasts, you name it – I have tried it.

All of them worked to one extent or the other. Then last year I came across the BePure Cleanse by Universal Formulas. It is touted as one of the strongest yet most gentle full body, all organ, and cellular level cleanses on the market. It came highly recommended so I decided to give it a go.

Before I go into my personal experience let me share a little bit about the cleanse with you.

BePure is a one-of-a-kind 21 day cleanse system developed by experienced physicians, herbalists, and supplement formulators. It will holistically detoxify and de-stress the entire body. Bepure vegi-capsules are 100% vegetarian. Formulated from wild-crafted and organic herbs with no harsh ingredients and no caffeine. It is physician approved, safe, easy to use and travel-friendly. 
Bepure is designed to help the body balance acid / alkaline levels in the tissues, stimulate removal of waste from the cells and create a more oxygenated environment. 
Satisfaction guaranteed!

Benefits of this cleanse:
▪ Restore good digestion
▪ Eliminate pain, gas, bloating, & irregularity

▪ Increase mental clarity and well-being
▪ Provide high-quality nutritional support

It supplies your body with:
▪ Vitamins
▪ Enzymes
▪ Pro-biotics
▪ Electrolytes
▪ Minerals +Trace Elements
Plus it is caffeine free and vegetarian friendly.

I found BePure super easy to do. They give you a small travel case so you can get your supplements ready for the day and easily take them with you without toting bottles all over the place. They also give you a wallet-sized card to check off and track your progress.

The How:

Daily when you wake up drink a large glass of water with lime. This helps to wake up your organs and start you on the right track to detoxification.

There are supplements for morning, noon and evening. Take each with a big glass of water. Drinking lots of pure clean water is important as you are releasing toxins and want to wash them out of your system.

Currently BePure is also offering with the cleanse at no extra charge the Pre-BePure and Post-BePure formulas. You can either take them during the cleanse (over lapping the 21 days in the beginning and the end) OR you may take them 5 days prior and 5 days post. I did them 5 days before and after making my cleanse really 31 days. My reason for doing this was that when I am focused on a supplement regimen I pay more attention to what I am eating and the longer I eat very well, the more thorough the cleanse. This is personal choice.

What to eat:

Clearly the point of cleansing is to clean you out. You don’t want to be adding toxins back in as you are doing it. Eat as cleanly as you can. If you slip up don’t worry, just get back on track.

Eliminate junk: all packaged, boxed, and frozen foods, such as pizzas, TV dinners, desserts – even those that say “health” and no fat — these are poison! Eliminate jelly, jams (unless natural sweetener is used), peanut butter with sugar of any kind, commercial cookies, and sweet desserts, ice cream, deli meats, and prepared deli dishes (unless you know all the ingredients). Eliminate potato chips, tortilla chips, and pretzels. Eliminate all kinds of processed food and all fried food. Do not drink soft drinks, energy drinks, alcohol, and anything with sugar and caffeine – including mochas and lattes. It is only 21 days – you can do it!

▪ Drink lime juice in temperate water upon waking
▪ Select organic whenever possible
▪ Eat whole, raw vegetables
▪ Juicing of fresh fruits & vegetables
▪ Whole grain cereal, not pre-sweetened
▪ Chicken, turkey, & fish are acceptable animal proteins
▪ Vegetable sources of protein are preferred
▪ Purified and/or distilled water

DIET #1 Eliminate all animal meat and dairy, especially cheeses and ultra pasteurized milk and milk products, all pastas and breads – except for sprouted-grain breads and crackers.
Dominant foods to eat are homemade soups with clear vegetable broth (no creams or milk or meat in broth) that have lightly (still crunchy) cooked vegetables, mushrooms, dark greens (bok choy, spinach, etc); salads like shredded beet, carrot, cabbage, and multi-greens; fresh fruit. Brown rice, beans, oats, and multi-grains are good and free-ranges eggs are fine. Snacks include cashews, almonds, pecans, flax seeds, and oils – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sesame Oil, or Grape Seed Oil. Buy as much organic, Non-GMO food that you can find.

DIET #2
Eliminate all beef and pork, ultra-pasteurized milk and cheese, (see foods in Diet #1). In addition to the dominant foods in Diet #1, you may eat broiled or baked fish, chicken, or turkey. If you are craving a burger, have a buffalo or ostrich burger without the bun. Select organic, multi-grains for breads. Brown rice, beans, oats, and multi-grains are fine (no highly processed foods, like instant oatmeal with added sugars/flavors). You may buy organic plain yogurt and sweeten it with your own local, raw honey or real maple syrup. You can mix in your own fruits, blended or shredded, for additional flavor (bananas, pineapple, apples, or berries are good choices).
Super foods: Cacao, hemp protein, Goji berries, and Macha are all great additions to your diet.

My experience:

You can read my daily posts as I did the cleanse on Facebook just scroll down to the very beginning of the page to begin my journey.

What you experience will depend on what you have ingested, come in contact with and what ailments you have had in the past. Often we experience what’s known as a Herxheimer reaction (click to read the article and go more in depth on that).

Essentially when toxins are released you may briefly re-experience the symptom one last time.

The first week of the cleanse I experienced:
Flu and cold like symptoms
Intestinal releases (this isn’t a rough cleanse where you are glued to the restroom)
Emotional releases
Skin beginning to clear and look better and brighter

The second week:
Vivid dreams
Runny nose
Fluctuating moods and energy levels
Minor headaches
Minor body aches

The third week:
Energy buzzing (raised/increased energy in bursts)
Amazingly clear vision
Glowing skin (where people were complimenting me)
Weight loss
Overall feeling of increased wellness
Raised mood level the majority of the time

The fourth week:
Hit another pocket of toxins – itchy watery eyes and headache
Runny nose
Tired on and off
Weight loss
Clothes fitting far bigger even though the number on the scale was not huge. (toxins take up space)

Last Week:
Felt better, lighter, like my body was vibrating
Clearer vision
Clothes fit better
Good mood
Very high energy levels
Glowing skin
Very happy with myself for completing this cleanse

Everyone’s cleansing experience will vary depending on current health.

I love BePure and will continue to do it yearly. If you are severely toxic (and actually ill) it is advisable to do it bi-yearly.

The way that I really confirmed that it worked was in doing a 10 day juice fast 6 months after this………. For the very first time ever in cleansing I did not have a single Herxheimer reaction. That can only happen when the body is detoxified.
