Questions & Answers About A Home Detox Program

Are you considering a home detox program for weight-loss, health, and natural healing?  Do you have questions about how a home detox can help you?

The Bliss Body Home Detox offers you everything you will need during your home detox program.  Check out the Q&A section at the Bliss Body website here.

If you have any further questions regarding home detoxification, weight-loss, and natural healing, please get in touch today.


Will I lose weight on the program?

Yes, you will. Changing to an alkaline detox program will immediately release retained water, and encourages toxic build-up to leave the body within the first few days. Water weight is the first to go, but the amount lost is entirely dependent on the body type and how much retained water one has. The more weight a person carries, the more water, and the greater the weight loss in the first few days. After the first week of detoxing, the body plateaus and weight-loss slows down, as the body begins to deal with the fat-soluble toxins, which are harder to remove.

Is detoxing dangerous?

No. The only dangerous aspect to detoxing is misinformation. Western medicine won’t usually endorse detox programs because it doesn’t know enough about it – it’s really that simple. Detoxing has been around for thousands of years, it is even said that Plato used to detox!  The only caution for those doing their first detox that it is recommended to begin slowly and work up to complete fasting. In other words, a water or pure juice fast is a big shock to a body that has been continually fed junk food for a sustained period of time.

Please note:  If you are pregnant, nursing, have an eating disorder, or recently had surgery, it is not recommended that you detox. 

Am I going to feel bad?

Yes, you may feel bad during the first few days of your detox, but don’t be alarmed, the feelings are only symptoms of the body ridding itself of toxins. For coffee drinkers it may be a little worse, as the caffeine withdrawal symptoms can compound those of the detox, causing additional discomfort. Symptoms of toxic flushing can include headaches, nausea, insomnia, mood-swings, skin rashes, fatigue. All these symptoms are temporary and are usually gone within a few days. Drinking plenty of alkaline water will assist you in feeling better, more quickly.

Will I become malnourished during a detox?

Absolutely not. Bliss Body Home Detox is packed with nutrients so that you maintain your health while your body rids itself of toxic build-up. Even the feelings of discomfort in the beginning are sometimes wrongly imagined hunger… but rest assured, your body just feels bad because this is how it feels to purge toxins. Hunger at this stage is purely psychological! You would literally have to detox for over a month before the body goes into starvation mode… and then only if your nutrient intake is insufficient.

What will I do if I feel hungry and don’t want to break my detox program?

You shouldn’t ever go hungry on the Bliss Body Home Detox program, but you will have enough supplements to ease hunger pangs, should you need them.

I’m not eating, so why don’t I feel hungry?

When we eat solid foods, our bodies have to break down and digest the food particles, which requires an enormous amount of energy. Nothing consumes more energy than the digestive process. The more we eat, the more our bodies have to work to digest the food, which burns more energy and of course, creates more hunger.

The Bliss Body Home Detox comprises a liquid only diet, meaning the nutrients are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream, providing you with good nutrition and giving your digestive system a well-earned break.  The body needs minimal amount of enzymes to digest the smoothies and soups, therefore freeing up enzymes to consume and purge toxins throughout the body. You will surprise yourself at just how good you feel without needing to eat…and hopefully begin to change how you view food in general.

Can I exercise during my detox?

Yes, but only certain exercise is beneficial. Walking, Yoga, Qi-Gong, Tai Chi, are most favourable. Gym workouts or any activities that cause muscles to produce lactic acid is counterproductive to your detox as it raises acid levels in the blood. Soothing, stretching exercises raise alkalinity levels in the body and are more conducive to a detox program. The Bliss Body Home Detox includes a simple, effective Yoga sequence that will be taught to you via Skype, and also given in the manual as written instructions. This will become a part of your daily routine both during and hopefully after, your detox program.

How many times can I detox per year?

It depends entirely on your lifestyle and eating habits. Your initial detox will be the hardest, but begin to get easier if healthier lifestyle changes are adopted afterwards. If you are relatively healthy, a 5-day detox twice a year is optimal.

Are colemas safe?

Yes, they are perfectly safe and easy to administer. You will use filtered/reverse osmosis water, diluted raw apple cider vinegar, coffee, and a post colema probiotic supplement to rebalance the intestinal flora. Detailed instructions are included in your manual to ensure that your colema process is as easy and effective as possible, as well as a Skype consultation to fully prepare you for the process.

What’s In Your Baby’s Diet?

I’m witnessing first-hand the incredible, impactful results of switching a 2-year old from a wheat, dairy, and sugar-heavy diet to a gluten-free, sugar-free, and wheat-free diet. His behavior has literally changed overnight. It’s nothing short of remarkable, and a true testament to the fact that most food on our supermarket shelves is poison – especially to a baby.

A child’s hyperactive behavior is most likely related to diet. Instead of sitting at the doctor’s office, getting advice about Ritalin, or whatever other pharmaceuticals they try and push on “unruly” kids these days, we can look no further than the kitchen.

Sugar, wheat, and skimmed milk do not belong in a baby’s diet!

Although I am not a mother, I am nonetheless very aware of the affects of baby formulas, wheat products, sugar, and dairy on a baby’s delicate stomach and digestive system.

For starters, human beings are not designed to consume skimmed cow’s milk. Studies have shown that calves die after 6 months if they’re fed only skimmed milk, so what’s that doing to a human baby? Skimmed milk, being skimmed of all its goodness, has added sugar to compensate for all the goodness (fat) that has been removed. So each time a baby drinks skimmed milk, they’re getting a good dose of unnecessary sugar with very little assimilable nutrients.

Sugar is added to every single baby formula, every cereal, bread, snack, and condiment on the market. In other words, anything children like to snack on contains sugar. Giving children sugary drinks and snacks is pretty much setting them up for a major sugar addiction, behavioral problems, diabetes or obesity. “Learning to live” with type-2 diabetes, as some so-called health websites suggest, is complete folly. Children shouldn’t have to live with any condition caused by bad dietary habits, and should never have to substitute a healthy diet with medication.   Instead, they should develop a taste for natural sugars such as fruit, and should never be exposed to addictive processed sugars.

Wheat has been blamed for the increase in the growing gluten intolerance in children. High-yielding, hybridized wheat crops with enormous amounts of pre-harvest pesticides are major culprits. The new breeds of wheat in today’s foods are extremely irritating to a child’s delicate digestive system, not to mention being as addictive as sugar.

Fortunately, there are many great alternatives in today’s supermarkets. Gluten-free products, healthy organic alternatives to sugar, and dairy-free alternatives such as oat, coconut, and almond milks are everywhere to be found. Almond milk has far more assimilable calcium than regular cow’s milk, and is really easy to make at home. Gluten-free oats with almond milk and raw honey is much healthier (and more delicious) than the ‘Instant Oat’ sugar bomb that many children consume on a daily basis.  Raw honey is a natural prebiotic which feeds the friendly bacteria in the gut, and it’s way more delicious than processed sugar.

When I think back to when I was a child, I remember our milk having a thick layer of cream on top, our bread being thick and heavy, and sweet, sugary snacks were rare, and a treat only. Nowadays food is very different. It has more added sugar, chemicals, and a longer shelf life. Food is not the same as it was 30 years ago, and we have to spend more money to find real, natural food.

Ensuring a baby’s health and future wellbeing is the most valuable gift a parent can give to their child. We shouldn’t assume that because something has added vitamins or has approval from the Heart Association that it’s good for children to eat. No child deserves to be condemned to a possible future of illness and disease because of cheap, processed foods. The earlier children develop good eating habits, the better chance they have at a healthy, vibrant future.

Cure IBS With A Home Detox And “Good” Bacteria

bact familyWe’ve all heard the term Irritable Bowel Syndrome, as this common ailment affects about 30 million people in the United States alone. Unfortunately, not much is really known about the cause or treatment of IBS, resulting in a lot of misinformation, frustration, and distress for the sufferer.

As someone who suffered with “IBS” for years and years, I cannot only relate, but I can speak from experience. Before I became wise to the fact that endless prescription medications were never going to fix me, I listened to my doctor’s advice about cutting out fruits and vegetables and everything else I loved, in order to “control my acid stomach”. Needless to say, controlling said “acid stomach” was impossible, ridiculous, and factually misleading. IBS is merely the symptoms associated with not having enough good bacteria in the gut, not a condition caused by eating certain foods, although certain foods can certainly cause irritation in the gut.

What I needed was to rebuild my beneficial gut bacteria – or microbiome. Years of eating processed foods, sugary and wheat products, indiscriminate antibiotic use and social drinking, had destroyed the good bacteria in my gut, leaving the door open for “bad” bacteria such as Enterobacteriaceae. This sort of overgrowth is quite common due to our “modern diet”, causing gas, bloating, constipation, heartburn, and a host of other symptoms that are often “treated” with prescription medication. Medications only worsen the problems over time, further upsetting the delicate balance of intestinal flora.

So, how did I solve my IBS problem? Firstly, I did proper detox program with daily colon cleansing and probiotics, which helped rebuild my healthy intestinal flora. I noticed the improvement almost immediately.

Secondly, I began eating (and drinking) fermented products on a daily basis. Nothing is better for the gut than fermented foods, which humanity has benefitted from for thousands of years. Processed foods deplete beneficial gut bacteria; fermented foods increase beneficial gut bacteria.

Healing the gut also helps alleviate food allergies, hay fever, skin conditions, and sinusitis. It’s incredible to think just how many people are suffering at the hands of unnecessary prescription medications, just because of an imbalance of beneficial gut bacteria.

Since I embarked on yearly detoxing and daily consumption of fermented foods, I’ve never suffered any digestive distress, whatsoever. I spent years trying to figure out why I was plagued with IBS, and the solution was simple. My aim is to help others feel great too, without needing to consult a physician or resort to pharmaceutical drugs.

If you consume too much processed foods, drink alcohol; have been on antibiotics or other medication for a prolonged period of time, or have suddenly developed allergies, the Bliss Body Home Detox can help you.

Been Told To Have Your Gallbladder Removed? Then Read This…

Remove gallstones with the Bliss Body Home Detox.

Remove gallstones with the Bliss Body Home Detox.

As I sit here on my 4th day of the Bliss Body Home Detox, I realize how lucky I am to have discovered this method of self-healing, and how much I want to help others do the same. No matter what state of health you’re in, you can achieve optimal health with a plant-based liquid diet, supplements, daily colemas, liver flushing, and rest.

Aside from weight-loss, most people enter a detox program with the purpose of finding a greater level of health, combatting illness, or with the aim of giving up prescription medication. I’ve never encountered anyone enter a detox program with the intention of healing themselves, and failing.   Detoxification and fasting is a cure for just about any condition, mild or chronic. Our bodies are perfectly capable of self-healing, if given the right tools to do so.

Just about every, illness, ailment, and affliction is treatable without prescription medication, or surgery.

Let’s take gallstones, for example. Over half a million gallbladders are removed every year in the US alone. For most people, this operation is unnecessary. It’s also dangerous. The gallbladder’s duty is to collect bile from the liver for the break down of fats and oils. Removing the gallbladder will not eliminate the problem, given that the problem begins in a liver damaged by lifestyle choices. The liver will still continue to produce bile, but without the gallbladder, bile just gets dumped into the intestines, resulting in a lifetime of digestive disorders and other health complications.

I have seen many people pass gallstones safely and effectively, through the process of liver flushing. A few years ago I worked with someone who passed a couple dozen actual gallstones after his 3rd liver flush. Had he not chosen this method of healing, he’d probably be on the operating table right now.  He is but one of many examples of people taking their lives and their health into their own hands through detox and natural healing.

Years ago a doctor told me that my digestion problems were a result of my gallbladder, and that I would probably have to remove it. This was his prognosis after prodding my belly with his fingers for a few seconds. It’s this kind of quack diagnosis that costs people their health and their organs, while the medical industry continues to profit.

Years later, after many detoxes and a complete lifestyle change, I have none of the symptoms I had then. As it turns out, my issue was simply a lack of good gut bacteria, which was easily remedied by consuming fermented foods.   I am now in the best health of my life at 44, and I have no need for doctors, prescription medication, or unnecessary surgeries of any kind.

If you suspect that you may have gallstones, let natural healing be your first choice before you rush to the operating table.   If you’re unable to attend a detox resort, perhaps a home detox is the answer for you. The Bliss Body Home Detox is safe, effective, and easy to follow. Using plant-based supplements, fruit, and vegetables, the program is right for anyone, regardless of age, weight, or state of health.

The Good Fat

Since the mid 20th century we’ve been indoctrinated into the belief that eating fat causes us to be fat, and fat-free products are better for us. More and more evidence is emerging to prove just the opposite.  For decades we’ve bought into the fat-free industry, but the drawbacks of avoiding fat often means we consume more sugar instead. Eating low-fat food causes us to eat more, as fat is filling. These “fat-free” foods are usually just high calorie carbohydrate and sugar-filled foods, and have been linked from obesity all the way to Alzheimer’s.

The Saturated Fat Myth

There are good fats, and there are bad fats. Saturated fats have been wrongly demonized for years. Take coconut oil, for example. It’s a medium-chain fatty acid, requiring no pancreatic enzymes for digestion, converting straight to energy when consumed. Containing beneficial lauric acid, coconut oil is probably one of nature’s finest sources of energy. And it won’t make you gain weight; in fact, some studies suggest it actually encourages weight-loss.

Because coconut oil converts straight to energy without being stored as fat, it is the perfect supplement to take before a workout, or as a “snack” between meals. Nothing curbs hunger, or gives you a burst of energy quite like a shot of coconut oil!

Some more coconut oil facts:

  • In cultures where coconuts/coconut oil is the predominant food, obesity and heart disease are literally unheard of
  • Lauric acid destroys harmful pathogenic bacteria in the body. Raw coconut oil is a great anti-fungal and antibacterial remedy
  • Coconut oil is beneficial for the external body too, as it protects the skin against sunburn, and nourishes and protects the hair
  • It is a stable oil with a high smoke point (about 450F), so it’s ideal oil for cooking
  • There are many documented cases where coconut oil consumption has lead to improved brain activity in Alzheimer’s patients

The benefits of coconut oil are literally too vast to list extensively, but the research is widely available. The best piece of advice I could possibly give anyone about coconut oil is to take a shot of cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil every day and see and feel the results for yourself!

This integral fat is used as part of the Bliss Body Home Detox, to give the body a source of energy during the process.  To find out more, please visit:

Detox The Body With Fruit & Vegetables

There seem to be a lot of supplements, shakes, and detox “wonder” pills on the market, which promise to flush the liver, detox the body, and promote weight-loss. While a lot of these supplements may contain natural ingredients such as milk thistle, they are useless if taken alongside a normal diet of meat, dairy, processed foods, etc.

Detoxification means that the excretory organs (liver, kidneys, and bowel) must rest from their duties. This allows the body’s enzymes to effectively cleanse and rid the body of damaged tissue, rather than fulfilling their usual task of breaking down and digesting food.

This process does not really occur if we’re eating what we regularly eat and taking a “detox supplement”, as the body still has to break down the food and supplement, instead of concentrating on detox duties. So you see, those supplements are little more than a marketing gimmick, for the most part.   If you want to really detox the body, you need to do the following:

  • Drink juiced organic fruit and vegetables only. Both fruit and veg have exclusive benefits for the detox process: Fruits cleanse and purge; vegetables restore and renew.
  • Take a plant superfood supplement to ensure that you maintain your mineral levels throughout your detox. This is really important! Chlorella is my first choice, as it not only has a complete mineral profile, but it draws out heavy metals from the body.
  • Drinking alkaline or oxygenated water. This is really important, as normal water isn’t “live” and is devoid of oxygen. If you cannot find oxygenated water, then add a tiny bit of Sodium Bicarbondate to your water, or add some juice from squeezed limes to make it more alkaline.
  • Have clear mineral-rich, potassium broth soups. You want the digestion to rest as much as possible; ensure you drink just the broth, and not the vegetable starch.

Ensuring a detox program is successful and safe requires a lot of hands-on knowledge and expertise.   Although detox resorts are not the answer for everyone, everyone deserves the opportunity to benefit from such a program.If you would like to experience the benefits of a full-service detox resort in the comfort of home with professional support, please get in touch for a free consultation!

Why Organic Pineapples?

2015-02-10 18.25.47Can you tell the difference between the two pineapples in this picture? Look closely, and you will see a slight difference in their appearance. The pineapple on the right is organically grown; the pineapple on the left is not. It’s difficult to tell by looking at the photograph, but there are definite, yet subtle, differences in the two.

I recently learned that conventionally grown pineapples are subjected to large amounts of pesticides and agrochemicals. Entire crops are repeatedly sprayed to allow steady and consistent harvesting. Many people are of the opinion that the thick rind prevents the absorption of pesticides into the flesh, but given the intensity and frequency of the spraying, this is just not true.

To quote Fernando Ramirez, a leading agronomist in Costa Rica:
“Pineapples need very large amounts of pesticides, about 20kg of active ingredient per hectare per cycle. The soil is sterilized; biodiversity is eliminated. Fourteen to 16 different types of treatment are typically needed, and many have to be applied several times. They use chemicals that are dangerous for the environment and human health.”

I corroborated this fact with a local Thai friend who worked as a crop sprayer driver in the past. His advice to me? Stay well away from the local pineapples, unless they are organic!

Given this information, there is simply no reason to eat conventionally grown pineapples when the organic variety is readily available. I take great pride in the fact that the pineapples used in my kombucha tea are locally sourced, organic only!
