But why you ask should you clean up your digestive system. Isn’t that what the Candida Crusher Program is about itself? The Big Cleanse is designed to be just that, a quick cleanse, and not a detox, I’ll be talking a lot more about detoxification further on in section 3 of chapter 7 of the actual Candida Crusher book.
A thorough detox is not unlike reconditioning your entire house from top to bottom, you will be working on much more than just a superficial level.
Detoxification is more like completing a major renovation on your house rather than giving it a spring clean, because now you are looking at a much more heavy-duty cleansing approach which may lead to re-decorating, re-painting, and more. The first good detox you do will be like your first big renovation, after you have completed several renovations they will become much easier and with potentially a lot less aggravation because you will have removed plenty of deep seated grime that has built up over the course of many years.
Have you ever completed a major renovation on a house before? I can tell you; once you come out at the other end you realize that you overlooked several things and that with your next renovation there would be things you would do differently. This is because there is nothing like experiencing something for real and working through all those problems that seem to arise. It is called sweat equity, and you always seem to learn best by the mistakes you make the first time around.
Would I do things differently the next time? You bet I would, and the same goes for your first cleanse, after you have completed one or two of these one-week cleanses you will begin to realize how easy they are and what to look out for the next time around. You get to know the pitfalls and traps, and just like completing small renovations which eventually give you the courage and experience to complete a major renovation, the Big Clean- Up will give you the confidence in time to complete a three or four-week detoxification program. Be patient, it will all happen in time, and you are best to wait until you have recovered from your yeast infection. You have plenty of time in the future to complete an intensive detoxification and cleansing regime but for now just concentrate on a one-week cleanse before you start on the diet.
When I recommend a detox program, I generally recommend a certain diet and a series of specialized herbal or nutritional supplement treatments to be used at the same time such as digestive enzymes, liver and kidney herbal medicines, certain probiotics and special bowel cleansing products. A detox for some people will imply the cleansing of heavy metals or chemicals, and I’ll outline this kind of protocol in section 3 later in this chapter, in Understanding Cleansing and Detox. As you may be aware, a good detox is well out of the scope of the Big Clean-Up, which is just a bowel purge followed by a seven day cleansing diet and is a prelude to your Candida Crusher Program.
