DAILY TIPS (from Martha Willmore and Harley Pasternak)
• Drink lots of water every day! Remember, water is fiber’s best friend. A good rule of thumb is to drink half your weight in ounces of water (i.e. drink 80oz if you weigh 160lbs)
• Avoid red meat, gluten, and dairy during the detox.
• You need 1 lb of vegetables for every 50 lbs of body weight to balance your pH.
• Continue to eat as natural as possible and avoid artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
• Reduce processed foods, refined sugar, red meat, and white flour (gluten or gluten-free breads, pastas, baked goods) as much as possible.
• Stay active: Walk 10,000 steps and do 5 minutes of resistance exercises daily.
Good luck on your detox!

Shaklee offers several state-of-the-art cleanse and detox products to help you rid your body of toxic chemicals, rejuvenate your liver, cleanse your colon, build up your intestinal microflora and much more.
LIVER CLEANSER (Liver DTX)
The liver is the largest internal organ in the body and plays a crucial role in maintaining normal metabolism and detoxifying the body. Shaklee’s Liver DTX Complex provides nutritional support for healthy liver function. This product has a proprietary blend of six botanical ingredients with antioxidant and bile flow enhancing properties, which combine to protect and stimulate the body’s natural ability to maintain healthy liver cells.
Shaklee’s Liver DTX Complex includes the extracts of:
• milk thistle seed
• schizandra chinensis seed (a plant native to China and used for over 2000 years to increase the amount of detoxifying enzymes in the liver)
• Reishi mushroom (known for its antioxidant properties)
• artichoke (to help maintain normal bile flow*).
These six time-tested and safe ingredients provide unparalleled support for maintaining a healthy liver*, which is crucial to your body’s ability to rid itself of toxins.
COLON CLEANSER (Optiflora & Herb-Lax)
The healthy body contains trillions of friendly microorganisms. A vast majority live in the colon and are referred to as intestinal floral or microflora. At least 400 kinds of microorganisms are found in the gastrointestinal tract; this amounts to about three pounds of bacteria in the intestines at all times.
Their most important role is keeping undesirable bacteria in check.
Common Causes of Bacteria Imbalance
The most common cause of imbalance between good and bad bacteria is the use of antibiotics:
• poor diet
• low fiber intake
• oral contraceptives
• medications such as aspirin and corticosteroids
• high sugar intake
To effectively cleanse your colon, Shaklee offers Optiflora a breakthrough colon cleanse system that has no equal. Only Shaklee guarantees live delivery of 500 million beneficial microflora to the intestines! Tests show that many of store bought brands do not make it live to your door, much less to your colon.
The Optiflora two-product system supplies both acidophilus and bifidus. The first product is a prebiotic (FOS) that comes in powder form which makes for a pleasant-tasting drink mix and provides nutrients, which selectively feed the friendly bacteria. The second product—the probiotic is a unique patented, seamless capsule that will withstand the shipping and storing process and the acidic environment of the stomach, guaranteeing the delivery of 500 million live beneficial microflora to the intestines.
Using the patented Optiflora colon care system to build your microflora to optimum levels can help improve a host of conditions from a wide range of digestive discomforts like indigestion*, heart burn*, diarrhea*, constipation*, gas and stomach bloating*. A healthy colon care aid more serious ailments like colitis*, autoimmune diseases*, and Candida*. It can also help improve skin conditions like acne*, psoriasis*, eczema* and cold sores*, and it can even help conditions like bad breath*, headaches* and ADD*.
Taking Optiflora everyday will help you experience a whole NEW LEVEL OF HEALTH! Remember, you are as healthy as your colon. It can be a cesspool of toxins poisoning your system, or it can be a garden where the vitality of life flows to your entire being, creating a state of health and vitality.
No colon cleanse program would be complete without Dr. Shaklee’s famous Herb-Lax formula. Originally formulated in 1917, Herb-Lax has been used effectively by millions of people over the years. It’s designed to encourage a mild cleansing action to aid the body’s natural process. Herb-Lax features a blend of 9 herbs, including senna leaf, which has been used for more than 3,000 years as a natural laxative.
The herbs used in Herb-Lax are not in any way related to the artificial chemical laxatives promoted on television. Those products often irritate the tissue and pull fluid into the bowels forcing it to eject its contents. Artificial laxatives like these can weaken the organs and may causes dependencies, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalance.
Instead, Herb-Lax naturally stimulates contraction of muscles with the colon. This allows for better removal of trapped waste and shortens the transit time, giving toxins less time to harm healthy colon tissues and be reabsorbed and circulated throughout the body. Herb-Lax can help improve regularity, reduce body odor*, clear acne*, relieve constipation, expel gas from the stomach and intestines, and normalizes the colon function while it nourishes the bowel.
BLOOD CLEANSER (Garlic Complex)
As far back as 3000 B.C., the Babylonians understood the versatile benefits of garlic. It was well accepted as a medicine for a wide range of applications, including respiratory tract infections, skin disorders, parasitic infections and as an antibiotic and antimicrobial agent.
Today, numerous scientific papers also report on garlic’s ability to cleanse the blood and ameliorate heavy metal toxicity, especially against such neurotoxin metals as mercury and cadmium, while another papers described the use of garlic in the treatment of hypoglycemia, intestinal disorders and a wide variety of other medical conditions.
However, not all garlic supplements are the same. Most of the processing methods used today, including crushed garlic powders, garlic oil capsules and aged odorless extracts, reduce or eliminate the allicin content. Allicin is the major active component of garlic and is needed to deliver the many benefits of garlic.
Shaklee’s Garlic Complex utilizes a unique, gentle; temperature controlled drying process, which retains ALL the allicin. The garlic is cooled to a level that temporarily inactivates the enzyme that forms allicin, and it’s only activated when the supplement is digested, providing the maximum benefits of garlic.
Shaklee’s Garlic Complex also has a dual-odor control formulation. Garlic breath” is due to garlic odor from the stomach. Shaklee’s Garlic tablet doesn’t break down until it is past the stomach and into the small intestine. “In addition, it contains a sweet-smelling blend of spearmint and rosemary extract for effective odor control.
OVERALL BODY CLEANSER (Alfalfa Complex)
Alfalfa is Arabic for the “Father of All Foods”. The roots of this amazing herb grow very deep into the ground bringing up vital nutrients and trace minerals from deep within the earth. Alfalfa is known as a natural diuretic, body cleanser and detoxifier. It stimulates bile flow, and binds with heavy metals and removes them from your system. It also helps protect from radiation and helps control body odor.
Besides its highly beneficial attributes as a body cleanser and detoxifier, alfalfa also has many other benefits. According to David Mulvain, M.S. Nutrionist, alfalfa also aids in digestion, is anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic*, anti-bacterial. It helps aid in the healing of ulcers, gout, heel spurs, upset stomach, allergies and back disc repair. It even regulates blood sugar levels and helps lower cholesterol. It’s truly an amazing herb! Only the finest quality alfalfa is used in Shaklee’s Alfalfa supplement. Grown without pesticides, herbicides, or inorganic fertilizers, it provides the highest quality alfalfa available on the market today.
Premium quality alfalfa, grown in California with no fungicides, bacteriosides, synthetic hormones, growth regulators, or chemicals.
