I believe it is good to have a full body detox once or twice a year. Many people detox hoping it will flatten their tummies and help them shed weight fast, but the true purpose is to rid the body of harmful toxins that may have accumulated over time. Toxic overload can be the underlying cause of symptoms such as bloating, constipation, skin problems, low energy, and fatigue. If you take these symptoms to a doctor, their solution may be to put you on some type of prescription. However, prescription drugs themselves contribute to toxic overload in the body. There are detoxes for all types of things: candida, heavy metals, and gallbladder stones just to name a few. When people ask me which one I use, my detox of choice over the past decade has been the CKLS olive oil cleanse.
CKLS stands for Colon Kidney Liver Spleen. In addition to the herbs ingested, the person is expected to consume a large amount of pure unrefined cold pressed olive oil. The olive oil is usually what stops people in their tracks from choosing this detox. It is not easy to consume. But let’s dig into the importance of the oil: Oils have a high viscosity and they reach into the nooks and crannies of the body that other substances simply do not. With the large amount of olive oil consumed, the oil latches onto toxic and harmful materials, and those substances exit the body with the oil. And if you dare to examine what you deposit, you will literally see what has left your body and be thankful you did it. You will see all types of small pea sized deposits. These deposits can come in a variety of colors. Do not fret! It is a good thing. Those are actually organ stones. An over accumulation of organ stones causes all types of havoc in the body and can even cause some organs to burst. You may also see a strange white substance. That may be candida or other harmful bacteria.
Because of our modern diet, levels of pollution in the atmosphere, and chemicals in our every day products, amongst other things, most people have some type of toxic accumulation in their bodies. For optimal health it is best to clear those toxins out. Here is the step by step process for the CKLS olive oil cleans via ckls101.com :
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
CKLS (Colon, Kidney, Liver, Spleen) 100% Herbal Formula Capsules 16 ounces (unrefined & cold pressed) olive oil 6 – 10 Fresh Lemons 7 gallons spring water Fresh Fruit Fresh Vegetables Vegetable Broth (a great alternative is to make cabbage soup)
Pre-Cleanse: Take five (5) CKLS capsules with room temperature water the night before you do the cleanse.
Day 1: When you awake the next morning take an additional five (5) CKLS Capsules on an empty stomach. Wait for one (1) hour before you take the olive oil & lemon juice. Drink 16-oz of olive oil (unrefined & cold pressed) if you are over 130lbs or 8-oz if under 130lbs. Consume all the oil within 30 minutes to an hour for best results. Juice four to six lemons to help with the ingestion of the olive oil. The lemons also help dissolve gallstones. DO NOT DRINK ANYTHING FOR FIVE (5) TO NINE (9) HOURS AFTER YOU HAVE INGESTED OLIVE OIL. DO NOT LAY DOWN AFTER TAKING OLIVE OIL. (IT MAY COME UP) DO NOT EAT ON THIS DAY!!!!!In about four (4) to eight (8) hours later you may have several rapid bowel movements. You should continue to have movements for another two (2) or three (3) hours. Be sure to have clear access to a restroom, especially four (4) to six (6) hours after ingestion.
Days 2 – 7: Take three (3) CKLS capsules at night for the next five (5) days
WHAT TO EAT: Breakfast: Fresh fruit, fruit juice (squeezed or use a juicer) Lunch: Fresh Vegetables (raw or lightly steamed) Dinner: (Do Not Eat after 6pm) Fresh Vegetables (raw or lightly steamed) If you feel hungry during the day sip on vegetable broth or cabbage soup.
WHAT TO DRINK: 3/4 to 1 gallon or more of spring water at room temperature daily.
And there you have it. It sounds rough, but it is very good for the rejuvenation of your body. I will be honest… I have never been able to drink the full 16 ounces of olive oil (I tap out around 12 ounces), nor have I lasted the full seven days on the cleanse (four days seems to be my breaking point). The point is that I did my best, and have had great results. So try out the cleanse. Do your best. Do not stress if you falter a bit. Anything you get done is helping the body release unwanted toxins.
