Review of the 5 Day Whole Body Cleanse

Review of the 5 Day Whole Body Cleanse

by Jen Springer

Yay, I’m done!

This cleanse taught me a lot. It’s been about 5 years since I’ve actually done an intense targeted cleanse.  I’d been taking nutrients to build my body and bring it back from the brink so it had the ju-ju to detoxify itself on a daily basis (adrenal support, B vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics, etc.). But to do a cleansing fast, nope it’s been a while.

In the end, I lost 5 pounds and my tummy is F-L-A-T. My cravings are gone, connective tissue inflammation is down and that gross bloated feeling is gone.

The cleanse was a success and I reached my goals. I’m happy!

You’re probably thinking this is the miracle cleanse and you just can’t wait to do it, right? Let me fill you in on the bit of the non-sugar coated details before you decide if this is for you.

Why I am I telling you the gory details?  To let you know this is normal and to be expected!

I’m not not a regular “mover”, I mean … I have to take herbs, probiotics, fiber, stay hydrated, and minerals to keep my bowel moving regularly.  So who only know’s what was hanging out in my colon because the second night’s bowel movement could have peeled paint off the walls. If I was in a public bathroom, I would have lost friends! Super stinky.

My guess is that I was getting rid of undigested protein that was hanging around in my digestive tract. It got better as the days went on and nasty stuff exited my body. Plus, I added some pro-biotics to help THAT situation.

Another thing I noticed is my body odor. I didn’t have any throughout the week. My theory is when I eliminated hard to digest protein throughout the week like eggs, meat, and cheese my body didn’t have that toxic undigested protein smell.  I was happy to realized that this cleanse rested my gut so I could make it stronger and hopefully have better digestion when I start eating these proteins again.

The last thing I noticed was how my weight fluctuated. In the first 48 hours I dropped 3 pounds. As the days went on VigRX the last few pounds came off.  What was interesting is that some days I woke up and weighed up to 1 pound MORE than I did the night before! Throughout the day I would lose up to 2 more pounds and in the evening I’d be up a pound. The scale went up and down like notes on sheet music.  In the end, I was down – yay!


3 most important things I learned?

1. Stay hydrated! I don’t know the exact amount, all I know is I always had water in hand and was drinking it.

2. Keep your bowels moving. A few a day keeps the bloated belly away!  Have an herbal tea with cascara sagrada (I like Smooth Move by Traditional Medicinals) on hand if you start to get backed up.  I also keep my Vitamin C and magnesium up, they are my secret bowel moving weapons.

3. Don’t let what the scale is doing panic you! Understand you’ll go up and down, don’t sweat it.


Was this a piece of cake? No, but it helped that my detox smoothie tasted like cake! I would have liked food, but all the fiber in the program made this tolerable and kept me from falling off the detox wagon.

Next post I will share my general outline that I am going to use with my readers and clients as a result of this adventure.  It’s always my intention to have personal experience with anything I recommend to make sure it works.

    Where are the directions for the 5 day cleanse? Also, I’m on several meds for emphysema and COPD – is it advisable to do the cleanse? Will it help me. I am about 15-20 lbs overweight. How many times can you do a cleanse? Is there a follow-up regime?

    I just did the follow up post on this one with the EXACT details for the 5 Day Cleanse, here’s the shortcut link for youhttp://naturalanxietytherapy.com/1733/exactly-how-to-do-a-whole-body-detox/.
    If I were you, I’d cleanse. Ask your doctor who has you on any medication if there will be any contraindications.
    People cleanse in many different ways. Some do 1 day a week, some 1 week a quarter. I hadn’t done it in a while because I was so weak. My goal now is to do it quarterly. I’m doing to do the 5 day cleanse again in the next week or so because I loved it so much!
    Honestly, the follow up regimen for me are all of the supplements I took during the cleanse but just doing 1 smoothie a day – either with Balance Complete or Power Meal.
    Hope that helps!

    I found the Lady Soma Detox to be the best complete colon cleanse that I could find. I tried 5 diffrent ones and ended up throwing most of them away but this one was very effective. I used it for 7 days and find that I am definitely feeling better & i lost weight as well…. I feel much more energetic now and dont have to worry about unexpected bathroom trips. I study herbs as a hobby and have found this to be an excellent formula.

    This looks very similar to Young Living’s Cleansing Trio that I’ve been using since 2001. Gentle cleansing is the ONLY way to go!!!

    Be well,
