Q: I'm on my 10th day of the Full body cleanse and I have only dropped like 5 pounds. When I go walking and come back to weigh myself. I see that I'm down like 3 lbs. But, when I weigh myself the next morning, I still only lost 5 pounds. I have lost my appetite completely. I eat fruits and a small salad other than that, I have no desire to eat. I have bowel movements about 3 times a day however, they are not regular size bowel movements. I even had a colonics yesterday, and not much happened with that, no movement. I'm just wondering what can I do to optimize my weight lost with this detox? I had taken smooth move too... still no change... Please advise.
Stop putting so much energy (emphasis) on how much (weight) you're losing. You're creating a block for yourself. In fact, you should even stop weighing yourself. Only do so after you complete the cleanse. Just focus on how you feel, and what you desire -- your objective, okay!

Secrets of Weight Loss
Q: I am a 47 year old African woman who lives in NY, and is new to natural living. I need to cleanse, detox, release excess weight, and release fibroids. I heard of zeolite, and looked for it on your site but I don't see it. Is zeolite good to use for fasting? The purpose of my fast is to end my desire to eat fish, and dairy from my tastebuds, and cleanse.
You'll have to research this product for yourself. Personally, I have heard about it but, choose to stick with botanicals. Read about our Full Body Detox is a wonderful way to begin living a healthier lifestyle.

I suggest she performs the FULL BODY DETOX and drink KHEMETIAN GOLD in her water (every glass). Put her on a raw foods diet (read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODSâ€ to learn more about this diet). have her soak in hot water, sea salt, and 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide daily. Please read our article â€SARCOIDOSISâ€ and our upcoming article on â€BURSITISâ€ .
Q: I have been having problems with my appetite since I had a problem with TMJ. I had not been able to eat for a while and I lost a lot of weight which would be fine for some but not in my case. I lost too much. I am now having trouble with regaining my appetite and I wanted to know if you had anything that would help to stimulate my appetite. I went to an herb shop here where I live and she gave me milk thistle. That did not work. My doctor has tried to give me 2 different medications to help but they did not work. One was periactin and the other was an antidepressant, which I probably need but because I am kind have depressed about my weight loss and how I look. If you could please let me know if you have anything that will help, or know of anything else out there for this problem I Would greatly appreciate it.
LOOK INTO OUR OREXIS FORMULA. YOU CAN FIND IT IN OUR ON-LINE STORE. I ALSO THINK ONCE YOU DETOXIFY YOUR BODY THIS WILL ALSO HELP YOUR APPETITE TO RETURN. YOU MAY BE AFRAID OF DETOXING FOR FEAR OF LOSING WEIGHT AND IF THIS IS THE CASE, AND THEN JUST CONCENTRATE ON THE OREXIS FORMULA.

Q: Thank you for the wonderful info you give to help us all live healthier lives. My concern is my hair loss. Is there an herbal remedies to help hair grow back like it did when I was in my young teens. I'm 41 years old now and my hair loss is primarily on the top. If you need to know my race (for any reason) I'm a black man. I do not want to use Rogain or any other chemicals to re grow my hair or pay money for hair transplants. Is there any hope to grow hair naturally or am I stuck with my genetic code of losing my hair? Thanks in advance!
Q: I've been eating vegan (mostly raw) for nearly 2 years. In the first year, I lost about 60 pounds. I still have about 50 more to lose and it hasn't budged in almost a year. I hear conflicting info about what sort of exercise would be best - cardio vs. strength. And any time I up my exercise, my hunger gets out of control. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the question. The most efficient way to lose weight from working out are high rep/low weight circuit training and through HIIT (high intensity interval training).
Your goal should be to increase metabolism and fat burning potential throughout the day. Both HIIT and circuit weight training are both effective. To be maximized you should exercise for 1 hour 5-6 times a week. You could alternate between cardio days and circuit training days. Here is an example.
Tues: Circuit training
Fri: Circuit training
Here is an example of a circuit and HIIT
Circuit. 15-20 reps 1 minute rest between sets. repeat for 20-30 minutes. (feel free to use the template and build your own)
Upper: Clean and press or curl to press
Lower: Alternating weighted lunges
Core: Reverse crunches
Plyo: Step ups
HIIT (can be done on almost any cardio machine)
3 minute warmup
-30 second sprint
-1 minute recovery
*Repeat for 15 minutes to 30 minutes*
3 minute cool down
Top fat loss mistakes for cardio and weight training
Cardio: Doing 1 speed with no resistance cardio. This kills me. Your fat burning potential begins and ends when you do. If it doesn't challenge you it will not change you. Atleast put the resistance on mountain or random.
Weight: Resting too long in between sets. Super sets are key here. Work one set while resting the other. Example of a superset is chest press and seated row together. Quad machine and ham machine. Pullup and shoulder press.
When you ramp up your metabolism you are going to have to eat more. Losing weight isn't about calories. Losing weight is about nutrient density. Here is a blog I did on eating for fitness and getting lean. http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/blog/2012/05/qa-eating-for-fitness-getting-lean
Hope that answers your question,

Q: I did the full body cleanse and now I'm almost done with the maintenance regimen. I've maintained my weight lost of 20 lbs and I love the way my body feel. I've implemented the healthy eating into my lifestyle. What do you recommend I take to continue my journey. Please advise.
A: We're so happy to hear about your success and maintaining those results. We can better suggest what your next step is if you provide us with more insight on what you're looking to achieve next.
Q: Hello, this is my 2nd time doing the full body cleanse. I did it last year so now I'm doing it again. I started on Monday 3/9 and since have lost 5 lbs. Is that normal? Also why do you recommend Distilled water and not Spring and/or filtered (Brita). I have always drank a lot of water but roughly how many times a day should I urinate and how many times a day should I make a BM? When I did it the first time last year it was late Spring early Summer and incorporated a lot of walking which helped out a lot. This time not so much due to the horrible NY weather. I would appreciate you answering my questions and getting back to me at your earliest convenience. Thanks
A: Everyone's body is different and responds to the regimen differently. Losing 5 pounds in days is okay. Distilled water is the best type of water that helps to detox the body. You should be drinking half your body weight in water. Anything you put into your body you can expect it to come out. Bowel movements and urination is directly related to the foods and beverages you're consuming. Be sure that you're consuming three regular meals a day; eating fruits and vegetables with fiber.
Q: Truth indeed. I just finished watching this youtube video, on mass control, fluoridation, and mercury poisoning. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?Feature=player_embedded). I wondered if there were any herbs, or natural rememdies that can counteract this? I am in my mid 30s, and feel as though I am going through alziehmers (growing forgetfulness, absent-mindedness, foggy thinking, ADHD, hypersensetivity to noises so as to find it almost impossible to concentrate). I have my "Back to Eden" Book, I will continue digging for answers there too.
Don't look for answers or solutions primarily from sources outside of the body. There are herbs, but first use your mind. Mental healing! will your healing into fruition. Good herbs that will assist include Gingko Biloba, Ginseng (all types), and Gotu Kola. Dherbs.com Brain Tuner, CNS, and Ethereal Bliss are also helpful for your condition.
Q: I feel I have lost too much weight. How can I gain it back?

Q: My 12 year old daughter is losing her hair. Her hairline has significantly receded, and her hairline on the side of her face is behind her ears, are slick. She does not have a perm and has not for about 2 years now. It is ok to use the Hair Nail formula and the MSM Sulfur together? Should I change the dosage? I am also considering the Child Liquid Cleanser and the Green 10-day Cleanser. Can they be used together? Should I change the dosage? Backgroud: She had ringworm when she was about 6, and lost hair. It grew back. She got a perm around 10. After the second application I noticed that those spots that were lost when she was 6 were going bald again. She hasn't gotten another perm. In spite of that, the areas of loss have gotten larger. The natural hair stylist said it could be puberty induced alopecia. Please help...
Q: Good morning. I tried the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and followed the diet. I must say that I am amazed at how good I feel. Energetic and focused but alas, I only lost 3 pounds in the 3 weeks. I am 5'5 and currently at 181 pounds. My body is extremely resistant to weight loss. I have done several different types of detox including the IZO juice cleanse in the last year and had not lost weight. I don't even seem to respond to a very low calorie diet. I do have elevated liver Enzyme levels and a recent blood test showed low B6 vitamin and not proper protein digestion. I exercise 3 times a week and I eat rather health and mostly organic. Please HELP. Thanks
This means that your body focused on another area that was of more importance than weight release. your mind wanted weight reduction but your body intelligence focused on something else. Go with the flow of the body intelligence and trust it. You apparently have an energetic block that prevents you from physically releasing weight (since you've tried other programs). Consider scheduling a consultation so we can get at the energetic/emotional root of your problem. Simply stop worrying about "losing" weight. Focus on what you desire (to see yourself in the size you desire). Don't focus on what you don't want (i.e. to lose weight).
Q: Re: Daily Regimen for Weight Loss, Inflammation, and Staying Regular. Hello, I used the full detox and loved it. I lost 15 lbs and would like to continue using something natural to help with the weight loss. Also, quite honestly I loved the ease of the bm's. Even before I began the detox, I have limited my carb intake and it is almost painful to go to the bathroom now and laxatives can be very harsh on the stomach. So, if you could please recommend a daily regimen of dherbs that I can take that would be greatly appreciated. By the way - though I enjoyed the healthy regimen, I can not do salads everyday so don't even suggest it! LOL Thank You! Weight Loss Inflamation
A: Congrats on your success with the cleanse, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed it. If you're looking to stop inflammation within the body, continue to recondition your bowels and lose additional weight it would be best for you to cleanse again. It's safe to do the cleanses back to back. A lot of foods contribute inflammation and not being regular in regards to the bowels. If you keep a balanced diet you'll be able to achieve your goals. Raw food doesn't just mean salads. The main purpose for the raw food diet was to benefit from the foods and to give your body a break from the foods it’s accustom to. You’re giving your body everything that it NEEDS. Most people are successful with the cleanse and the diet when you open yourself up to the change. The diet was not intended to be a challenge, it's to benefit from live foods that help your body. If you decide to cleanse again, we suggest embracing the diet and trying new types of raw meals.
