Other cleansing programs use bentonite clay in their formulas. Why don't you?
According to independent laboratory analyses, bentonite clay contains roughly 22% aluminum. While it has not been conclusively proven, there
is sufficient evidence that aluminum plays a role in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease and osteoporosis. Bentonite is not used in any Éjuva product. Instead, I have
created Renew, an Ayurvedic, Chinese, Japanese formulation of herbs. I consider this a major breakthrough. In Renew, we use the herb combination Triphala which, rather
than drying the body like bentonite clay, pulls out toxins and naturally lubricates the intestines, further building the immune system. We also add herbs which are
anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and immune system supporting such as Pau d'Arco, and Pseudowintera colorata. Another wonderful benefit of Renew is that those who suffer from
chronic constipation now find welcome, gentle relief, with less need for enemas or colonics.
What about Senna? Why don't you use Senna leaves?
Never, ever, ever use Senna. Not only is it habit-forming, Senna causes intestinal griping (that SUDDEN urge to go to the toilet) because
it substitutes normal peristaltic action with a harsh artificial one. Many people who have used Senna have lost their natural peristaltic action until they cease use.
I am overweight, can I do your cleanse?
Yes, by all means. Some have reported weight loss of up to 40 lbs. in one month! Usually an overweight person can expect to lose around 20
lbs. in the first month. If you take the program on a long-term basis after the first month, it is easy to lose more weight and keep it off.
I am underweight, can I do your cleanse?
Éjuva helps your body harmonize to its ideal body weight, its own homeostatic "zero point." This means that while overweight people tend to
lose weight, people who are very thin either do not lose additional weight during the cleanse, or only lose a few pounds and quickly gain them back within a few weeks.
Do I need to take an enema?
The Éjuva program goes a long way to remove tremendous amounts of toxins and wastes from the body. However, due to poor diet, lack of tone
in the intestines, blockages and lack of peristaltic action, the intestines may sometimes need a little more help in the form of an enema. Cleaning the lower intestines
with the pure water of an enema can definitely help remove even more wastes and blockages. In summary, enemas may not be necessary, but they are often very helpful. Enema
Bags are available here on our web site.
What if I don't feel well during the cleansing process?
If you feel weak and tired during any of the Phases, most likely it is because toxins are re-entering your bloodstream. If symptoms
continue for more than several hours, you may consider taking an enema. (See section on Enemas).
One of the advantages of the Éjuva program is that as the need arises, you can shift from one phase to another in order to control your
cleansing reactions and energy levels. If you feel exceptionally weak at any time, give yourself a water enema. If this doesn't help, return to Phase 2 (or if necessary,
Phase 1), until you feel better. When you're ready, you can return to the more advanced stages of Phase 3 and 4.
Example: Let's say you've already done Phase 2 (one or two meals per day) for one week; a week of Phase 3 (one meal per day). Then,
three days into Phase 4 (no meals), you start feeling weak, so much so it's affecting your ability to function. Simply switch to Phase 3, eating a meal once a day.
What do I do if nausea occurs while cleansing?
Do one or more of the following:
- Take an enema.
- Take less of all tablets.
- Drink Ginger, Fennel, or Peppermint tea.
- Cut back on the amount of Combi.
If the above suggestions do not eliminate your nausea, it is possible that your nausea is being caused by parasites. In this case,
temporarily discontinue the Éjuva cleansing program and begin our Para Go anti-parasitic program. After its' completion, return to the cleansing program.
Note: It happens only rarely, but some people have temporary discomfort in their intestines while cleansing. If symptoms persist to
the point of being "too much to handle," either move back to an earlier Phase, reduce dosages, or discontinue the program for now. There is no need to suffer during the
cleansing program. There is no necessity to cleanse so quickly that you experience serious discomfort. See your health care practitioner if symptoms persist.
How do I keep from being constipated?
- Drink a large glass of water each morning. Adding some lemon juice is also helpful.
- If constipation continues, try increasing your dosages of Power and Renew.
- Reducing the amount of Combi may also help.
If you have not had a bowel movement by the end of the second day, use Power and Balance that evening before bed. The next morning, take 1
Combi/Moflora shake and continue with Renew. Extra fiber and more water should help with most constipation problems. It is important to drink lots of water during and
Some people intuitively know they need to re-populate their intestinal tract with a more beneficial intestinal bacteria. To create the
ultimate in intestinal health, the Éjuva Ultra Pro formula was created. This formulation contains over 40 billion organisms per gram of human-specific Lactobacillus
acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidus and Lactobacillus brevis. This product can be purchased directly from Éjuva or your Éjuva distributor.
I suffer from flatulence. What can I do?
One of the wonderful additional benefits of the cleansing program is that it helps clear up flatulence. However, if you experience any
flatulence after cleansing, try drinking peppermint or catnip tea. Should the flatulence continue for more than a few days, the Éjuva Ultra Pro formula may be taken to
assist re-populating the friendly bacteria of the bowel.
My tummy feels bloated when on the cleanse. What should I do?
If you feel bloated, it is usually because of either of several things.
- You took too much Combi. Cut back to a smaller dosage.
- Poor food combinations may have contributed to indigestion and poor assimilation. Skip a meal. Drink lots of fluid. Sip peppermint tea.
- You may have a partial waste product blockage which doesn't permit the free flow of digestion in your gastro-intestinal tract.
- Past dietary patterns have left residual mucus and toxins yet to be expelled.
- You may have parasites.
I'm on the road a lot, can I do the cleanse?
Yes, absolutely, you'll be able to maintain control. We even have bus drivers doing our program. Can you imagine them saying to their
passengers "hmm., hold on a minute, I need to ."
I have too much energy.
That can happen when you take too much Balance. Reduce your dosage of Balance tablets.
I do not have enough energy.
Increasing the amount of Balance generally helps. Consider, too, that with the release of toxins the body sometimes feels lethargic. Take
it as a sign that you should rest more whenever possible.
I feel so fantastic on the program! Must I stop?
No. Some people extend the program another week or so. Many purchase additional kits for future cleanses. Thankfully, many users note that
improving one's eating habits and health lifestyhe is the needed pro-active solution after the cleanse.
Is it necessary to take all the products in the kit?
Yes. The components of the program are designed to complement each other and should be taken together.
Can I take Balance by itself, while not cleansing?
Balance can be taken by itself even after the cleanse. It is especially good for organ-balancing and increasing energy.
I have Candida. Will the Éjuva Program help me?
Due to the action of the program's Ayurvedic herbs, particularly Pseudowintera Colorata, most people experience a significant improvement
in their Candida symptoms. For some, Candida symptoms disappear entirely. Our Candi Not program is available for those stubborn cases.
Can I go back to my old "not so great" way of eating after the program?
I don't recommend it. Cleansing is a wonderful opportunity for you to tune into what your body really wants and needs. Be kind to yourself.
Most people want to feel healthy after the program.
I've never fasted. Do I have to?
No. In fact, for many elderly individuals or the infirm, it is often better to stay on Phase 3 for two weeks instead of going on to Phase
I've done many cleanses before, can't I start with Phase 2 or 3?
It is not recommended. The herbs need to build up a momentum in the body. Prematurely starting with these later Phases can short-change you
of the full elimination and balancing effects that the program offers you.
Why does the Éjuva program take longer than other cleansing programs?
It is a widely held misconception that deep intestinal cleansing can be accomplished in a few days or a week. Dozens of intestinal
cleansing programs promote the idea of a "spring cleaning." Most of these so-called 'quick cleanse' products stimulate the intestine with herbs that widen the bowel
stimulate peristalsis, mobilize accumulated fecal matter and thus merely increase the frequency of bowel movements. While increased elimination gives consumers some
relief, they do not address the removal of tenacious waste deposits that have accumulated over the years.
It makes sense that short term cleanses cannot eliminate long-term waste build-up. It took months, perhaps even years, for your body to
become unbalanced. Restoring optimal health requires an investment of time and energy in the healing process. Deep cleansing is best done more slowly over the course of
one month to ensure removal of parasites and their eggs. This is accomplished with the safe yet powerful health-promoting herbs found in all Éjuva products.
We recommend repeating the program after six months, up to twice every year, until you feel clean. This allows your body to maintain the
cleansing, health-building action of the herbs for extended periods. The body is not a machine or mechanical apparatus to be flushed or swept out "Roto-Rooter" styhe.
Healthful cleansing does not shock the body into eliminating bodily waste. Instead, proper cleansing helps bring the body into a state of balance by ridding itself of
mucoid debris, toxins, and parasites. Intestinal cleansing with herbs and plants offers the wonderful opportunity to restore our bowels to a state of optimal health.
Who should cleanse?
Almost everyone, except for extremely weakened individuals, can benefit from proper intestinal cleansing. Even if you eat an ideal diet,
you may not be receiving all the available health-enhancing nutrients if your intestines aren't properly digesting and assimilating the food you eat. During an intestinal
cleanse, the body expels unwanted digestive waste matter, unhealthy bowel flora and old mucus layers, all of which are ideal breeding grounds for parasites and fungi
(such as Candida albicans). Intestinal cleansing also facilitates the mobilization and elimination of stored toxins from the blood, organs, lymphatic system and other
While cleansing often helps the body fight or prevent illness, it is important to remember that not every health problem can be helped by
cleansing. A myriad of other factors, such as genetic weaknesses,
structural injuries and imbalances, emotional stress, environmental poisoning, also contribute to illness. Nevertheless, cleansing HAS
proven to be effective with conditions such as compromised immune systems, Epstein-Barr virus, Herpes, Candida, parasites, Roseola (a form of middle-age acne), sluggish
liver, low blood sugar and mood swings. Many ailments that at first glance appear to have nothing to do with the intestines, (certain skin diseases, fatigue, problems
with weight, weak immune systems and fungal diseases) have been greatly improved or eliminated entirely with intestinal cleansing.
Note: Cleansing is not recommended for women during pregnancy, post-operative patients, and those whose health is very fragile due
to any number of causes. People taking allopathic medications, or who have intestinal inflammation, diverticulitis, colon cancer or similar conditions should seek the
help of a qualified health practitioner before undergoing any cleansing program.
I have many food addictions. Can this help?
We receive numerous testimonials from people who have eliminated their cravings for excess sweets, chocolate, coffee, meat etc. The herbs
are specifically designed to help with the removal of food addictions. Most people report eating healthier than ever before.
Do I need to eat a raw food diet?
We all possess freedom of choice. In the past, traditional cultures honored the ways of nature and knew the importance of eating live and
raw natural foods as a major component of their nutritional intake. I strongly recommend including as much raw, uncooked foods to your diet as possible. As mentioned
before, these foods include vegetables and fruits, germinated and sprouted grains, nuts and seeds, alkalinizing juices, and some dehydrated and fermented foods.
Living "raw" foods such as sprouts provide us with so much vitality because of the abundant bioelectrical forces present in them. Kirlian
photography has shown that the electrical energy surrounding a tray of wheatgrass enhances the bio-force field surrounding the human body merely by being in its
The abundance of oxygen in living foods is vitally important. Oxygenation of the bloodstream is essential to the nourishment of all the
cells in one's body. Numerous studies reveal that oxygen deprivation within the body leads to disease and death. On a living foods diet, a continual supply of oxygen is
fed into the system with extremely beneficial results.
Sprouting increases the amount of nutrition in foods. As soon as a seed, grain or nut is soaked, it becomes more easily digested as enzyme
inhibitors, phytates (natural insecticides), oxalates, etc., are washed away. During the germination process, sprouts literally spring to life: starches are converted
into simple sugars, proteins are broken down into amino acids, fats are converted into soluble fatty acids, and vitamins are created where they didn't exist in the same
food in its pre-sprouted state.
Living foods that are germinated and sprouted afford us the most concentrated natural sources of vitamins, chelated minerals and amino
acids. They also contain abundant enzymes and bioelectrical energy. Pound for pound, leafy sprouts and seed or grain sprouts yield just as much protein as red meat, yet
in a totally digestible form without saturated fat, cholesterol, artificial hormones and antibiotics that are found in most present-day meats.
With these simple truths in mind, it is easy to see how harmony can be restored to the body through the use of fresh, raw and living foods.
Raw foods, however, are not a "cure all". There are many other factors that create health. Among them are simple things such as exercise, positive mental attitude,
sufficient rest, and fresh air. And indeed some people cannot tolerate an all raw food diet. Our bodies, after generations of eating cooked and highly processed foods
from crops which have been raised on poor soil, have to some degree lost their ability to fully extract and absorb the optimum life forces and goodness from food. If
you've been eating a junk food diet, full of fried food and meats, gradually transitioning to raw foods is better.
Nevertheless, raw foods for the majority of people support maximum and optimal cleansing. However, in your dietary transition, eating
steamed vegetables still allows cleansing to take place. And although eating a 100% raw food diet allows for maximum cleansing, a 75% raw food diet is sufficient to
maintain vibrant health-assuming all other factors that contribute to health are being observed.
Why do I need to take Moflora, can't I just use plants and herbs in my daily diet?
You could. Onion and garlic can help regenerate beneficial intestinal bacteria, however, only small changes will be noticed if there are
insufficient amounts of healthy bacterial flora to begin with (due to loss from antibiotics, stress, etc.) Grown on a chicory base, the human-specific probiotic cultures
contained in Moflora are specifically designed to give your intestinal tract the boost it needs to regain its optimal bacterial balance.
There are several other cleansing programs available in the health marketplace. Why is yours better?
Intestinal cleansing is certainly not a new idea, and it is true that there are other cleansing systems out there. The majority, however,
either do not go deep enough to rid the body of harmful old mucoid deposits and toxins, or they are too harsh on the body as well as being addictive. We do not use
bentonite clay. In my opinion, clay is too harsh, too drying and too full of heavy metals to even consider being safe.
The Éjuva intestinal regeneration and renewal program is unique in that it is based on the syntheses of Ayurvedic, Western, Japanese and
Chinese herbs whose efficacy has stood the test of time.
Many people who use other intestinal programs find themselves out of balance for months afterwards. Some even suffer ongoing gastric
disturbances. Our program was specifically designed to avoid this and keep people of all body types balanced during the program, and afterwards. It was not easy to create
an intestinal cleansing system that was nurturing, yet powerfully effective. We feel we've accomplished this, and Éjuva is endorsed by many of the world's most respected
Your program is expensive. Why is that?
The Éjuva program is made with organic and wildcrafted herbs wherever possible. This attention to quality drives the cost up. In addition,
absolutely no fillers, binders, flow agents, or preservatives are ever used. In fact, when we were looking for a laboratory to compress our tablet products, none were
able to meet our stringent conditions. In order to make our tablets without using these harmful ingredients, Éjuva uses a proprietary, no-heat process developed by
Éjuva's founder, Dr. Steven Hurwitz.
Our tablets have nothing in them but the purest of plant ingredients. This also means that because there are no flow agents to help the
powders run through a hopper into the tableting machine, a trained technician must be there to constantly supervise the machine, stirring the powders to maintain proper
flow. Again, this increases our cost.
