|Cleansing Reactions: If you are experiencing a cleansing reaction (discomfort, diarrhea, vomiting,
headaches, fatigue or dizziness), an enema will often give quick relief. A coffee enema may be used 2-3 times per week, following the regular enema.
Mild cleansing reactions are common but generally pass quickly. These reactions are your body's way of telling you it is getting rid of toxic waste. Before going into the
deeper phases of cleansing, wait until your body no longer has cleanse reactions. Be sure you have 3 days of feeling good before considering a more advanced phase of
Some cleanse reactions could be avoided by drinking lots of purified water. It is far better to drink extra water, than not enough.
Enemas: It is strongly recommended to do enemas while cleansing. They are helpful
anytime a cleanse reaction occurs, and are recommended 2 times per day during the Master Phase for maximum results. This is an excellent way to easily and safely rid your
body of toxic waste. An enema greatly speeds up toxic elimination and lightens your entire cleanse experience. (Detailed information and instructions for enemas, are
included in Dr. Rich Anderson's cleanse information resources, see "Cleanse And Purify Thyself"
for more information or review Éjuva Cleansing Program - How to Take an Enema.
pH Testing: Most people in the Western World are deficient in electrolytes. Eating too
much acid-forming food, such as bread, sugar, eggs, meat, processed foods and much more, creates electrolyte deficiencies. When this happens the bile becomes too acidic
and the body cannot digest foods efficiently. Then mucoid plaque begins to develop. The bowels become even more toxic. And the liver, too can become toxic. Ultimately,
the body's ability to heal itself is greatly diminished.
pH testing will reveal any electrolyte deficiencies. Your pH test results will tell you whether you need to pay extra
attention to alkalizing your body, both before and during the cleanse process. Those who do not score a passing pH should stop eating acid-forming foods. The body needs a
diet rich in alkaline-forming foods: fruits and vegetables high in organic sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Alkalizers provide a concentrated source of these
nutrients, as can fresh juices and the vegetable mineral broth (see Vegetable Soup broth recipe in "The Cleanse Cookbook").
Even if you do not have a passing pH level, you may proceed with the Mildest Phase ONLY, and only if you continue to take in
an ongoing abundance of alkalizing electrolytes to offset you body's depletion. Once you have increased your alkaline reserves and passed all 3 parts of the pH test, the
you can graduate to higher phases of cleansing.
Please note that checking your urine pH during a cleanse will not give you an accurate measurement. During a cleanse your
body is removing stored acids, so the urine pH level is very low. The saliva and lemon tests remain more accurate while cleansing, but even these may be "off" during the
intense cleanse experience on the Master Phase. The pH testing methods are included in "The Cleanse Cookbook". Also, see the
pH article, by Christine Dreher.
