Healthy Spring Cleaning (Inside and Out)

Harmonize Your Health with The Tiao He Cleanse
The Tiao He Cleanse is one of the best basic cleansing programs in the marketplace. It gets its name from the Chinese herbal formula Tiao He, sold under the trade name Chinese Liver Balance. Tiao He means to "mediate harmony," referring to the formula's ability to harmonize the function of internal organs by helping to ease congestion in the liver. Besides the Chinese Liver Balance (or Tiao He) formula, the cleanse contains All Cell Detox, a general cleansing formula, the stimulant laxative formula LBS II and Psyllium Hulls, a dietary fiber. Two single herbs, Burdock Root and Black Walnut Hulls ATC Concentrate, complete the program. This 14-day cleanse is even more effective if you add more fiber. Take 1-2 heaping teaspoons of a fiber blend like Psyllium Hulls Combination or Everybody's Fiber first thing in the morning along with a large glass of water. Taking an enzyme formula like Proactazyme Plus between meals will also enhance the action of this or any other cleanse. And, remember to drink plenty of water during the cleanse, at least 1/2 ounce per pound of body weight per day. Any cleansing program is also more effective when you go on a mild food diet while on the cleanse. Most people in our society aren't healthy enough to fast, bur they can do a semi-fast by refraining from "junk food" while on the cleanse. Avoid refined sugar, white flour products, heavy meats and dairy and stick to a diet principally composed of whole grains and legumes, fresh fruits and vegetables. This makes the cleanse even more effective. When NOT to Cleanse Cleansing isn't for everyone. First of all, it's never a good idea for pregnant women or nursing mothers to go on a cleanse. Cleansing programs like the Tiao He Cleanse and CleanStart are also too strong for children. People who suffer from inflammatory bowel disorders, autoimmune diseases or who are very weak or elderly should approach cleansing slowly as cleansing can make them feel very sick and may make their conditions worse.
