The digestive system is the center whereby people nurture themselves more than any other place in their bodies. We eat foods that are assimilated in the gut that supports us physically, but we also experience our emotions in the gut. Have you ever said “my stomach is tied up in knots”? There is a reason for this, and scientists are finding the gut has its own brain (a nerve complex at least). This reason that diet is so important, since our health and well-being all start with what we put into our bodies.
Regular detoxification is important, because as the digestive system becomes more and more detoxified, other parts of the body also begin to eliminate their toxic overload, and this creates more balance and peace in our lives.

The Gentle Phase is filled with eating raw and living foods and taking herbs (hopefully you are always in these first two phases).
The Power Phase takes more commitment, strength, & determination, since in this phase you decrease solid food intake and start cleansing the digestive tract.
The Master Phase is when no meals are eaten, and instead a regular regimen of herbs and shakes or juice are taken. This phase is usually a week long.
The Return Phase is when you start to slowly add solid foods back into your diet and is really a reverse-order of the previous phases.
A cleanse usually last four weeks (but can be any length) and cleansing is ideally done four times a year.
The conditions that will affect how well you will do on a cleanse are:
