This question is marked "community wiki".

There seems to be numerous body detoxification (detox) methods and I would be interested to hear which ones people have found effective, in addition to the two methods below that I have tried myself.

  1. Bashar - MSM and Vitamin C

  2. Juice detox

In terms of the juice detox, I recently tried a specific 2 day juice detox whereby I was drinking only 230ml of freshly made juice 3 times a day and liquids such as water and herbal teas in between.

I found both of the above methods very effective in terms of providing me with heaps of energy even on very little sleep. I also found that I was literally glowing from both of them and I felt really healthy.

What other detox programs have you tried and in what ways have you found them to be effective?

I have used milk thistle in liquid form in the past. This definitely had a detoxifying effect on me and  was fast acting.

I have also taken apple cider vinegar daily. I found this increased my energy and I lost a few pounds of weight as well. 

I currently use Vitamin C/ Msm as recommended by Bashar and Stingray. I have just started taking Wheatgrass juice daily also.

@Satori - Thanks for your input. Interesting detox ideas.

@Pink Diamond - Your welcome, hope you find something that resonates with you. I forgot to mention, I have also used Aloe Vera juice in the past but did not isolate it enough to get an idea of its effect. I have heard good reports about wheatgrass juice also but have not tried it yet:)

(05 Sep '12, 15:53) Satori

@Satori- I have also heard from the older folks that apple cider vinegar is almost like the fountain of youth; they speak how when they were taking it on a daily basis, they had zero health problems.

Btw, are you finding the Bashar mixture to be of any benefits? I have been on it for about 3-4 days now and cannot really comment as of yet.

(09 Sep '12, 04:07) Nikulas

Hi @Nikulas 

I can certainly vouch for that and I had a few noticeable benefits from taking ACV. Some of the benefits I had seem to be consistent with what's written here.

I have been on Vitamin C / Msm for about a year. I noticed improvements after a few weeks in  my skin and hair. It gives a me a general feeling of well- being also...

(09 Sep '12, 05:06) Satori

From what Stingray says its an ongoing detox so it might take few weeks to months before the detoxifying effect really starts to kick in. I stopped taking it for a while and when I was feeling good it kept coming into my head to use it so I take that a good sign. I would say stick with it a bit longer to give it a chance to work :)

(09 Sep '12, 05:07) Satori

@Nikulas - In addition to what @Satori says, I think it also depends on what physical condition you are in to begin with. I suspect that if one was in a poor physical state at the start then the results would be more noticeable than if you were already in great health. In the first case, the mixture would help with healing (I noticed this with my father who originally suffered with gout) but, in the second case, it just keeps you at your "peak"...have noticed this with myself and my wife.

(09 Sep '12, 05:23) Stingray

@Stingray- I see, makes sense...Bashar says that one may require up to 10gm/ 10,000mg of the mixture 3 times daily in the most acute, uneasy bodily conditions. Currently I am taking 3g, 3x per day. Whilst I am perfectly healthy at the moment, I want to ask if perhaps the dosage could be largened to ease my sore muscules from a hard gymnastics workout yesterday...

@Satori- Thankyou for the response :) Glad your days are getting better and better!

(09 Sep '12, 05:28) Nikulas

@Nikulas- Thanks, your welcome:)

(09 Sep '12, 05:34) Satori

@Nikulas - "perhaps the dosage could be largened" - I would just stick with the initial guidelines until you know clearly what effect it is having upon you, and it gives your body time to adjust. Too much MSM initially and you'll be visiting the toilet a bit more than you'll probably want to :)

(09 Sep '12, 06:24) Stingray

@Stingray- I see, thankyou. Already this super hydration phenomenon has made me best friends with the toilet; I dont think I need to upgrade my friendship with it.

(09 Sep '12, 06:49) Nikulas

@Satori - I've begun taking ACV every evening before dinner, but now I've read that isn't optimal? There is differing advice on how to take it all over the internet. I was hoping you could tell me what works best and how you used it?

(15 Sep '12, 16:03) Grace

Also, I found little fizzy drink packets of EmergenC that have 1000 mg of vitamin C that will make it easy to remember 3 times per day with MSM (I drink water all day long, and you just drop the powder in the packet into a bottle of water), but I am wondering if I shouldn't mix the two ideas in one body? Does anybody know if combining all 3 would be contraindicated? I'm having this mental picture of my insides smoking and bubbling over like a lab experiment gone bad. :)

(15 Sep '12, 16:06) Grace

@Grace - That would be some concoction Grace.  I don't know about mixing them:)

I used to take ACV every morning on an empty stomach, in a tall glass of Apple juice. This disguised the taste pretty well. It is also good for digestion so it could be taken after a meal also. I honestly don't think there is an optimum way to take ACV, which is maybe why your seeing so many variations. I think it's best to experiment for yourself and  see what feels best for you:)

(15 Sep '12, 16:44) Satori

@Satori - Thanks that's reasuring. Ah, and the taste... :/ So, apple juice, huh? Ya, I need to try something. I did try honey once - just insensified it somehow LOL!

For several years I was permanently cleansing some vital organ or other.

I can recommend three different options for you:

Liver and gall bladder cleansing - your best bet is a book by Andreas Moritz entitled "Liver and gall bladder cleanse" or something similar. This includes a recipe involving lemon juice, apple juice and some oil. It is pretty well known, has been around for years, involves nothing dangerous and has the advantage of being quite cheap. The book explains why you should cleanse your liver and gall bladder and gives clear instructions. There are no doubt many websites with the recipe but I would recommend reading the book.

Bowel cleansing can also be carried out quite inexpensively with the bentonite and pysillium husk clean (B&P) - there are many variations of this and recipes of this on line. The idea is that the pysillium husks soften the impacted grot and then the bentonite clay strips the grime from the colon walls. The one I used to do involved consuming only liquids for seven days.I would advise that after any colon cleanse you repopulate your bowel with a good probiotic (get a really good one from a reputable supplier). If you want the details of the one I used to use let me know an email address I can send it to.

I can also recommend Dr Schulze (discussed previously on this website). He is based in the US but ships pretty much anywhere. I am UK based and it used to take a week to ten days for the stuff to arrive. He does a whole set of books on colon cleansing, kidney, liver etc cleansing. He is really hardcore! His herbal remedies are certainly man enough for the job - whereas most herbal detoxes aren't strong enough to have any real effect.

The only thing I would add is that I did become sort of obsessed with detoxing my body for a while and looking back on it, I would say that detoxing my thoughts has actually had a greater impact.

@Catherine - Yes, I heard the recording where Bashar recommends Dr Schulze. I will have to give it a try at some point. I do agree that you can go crazy on those detox programs. Good point.

(05 Sep '12, 15:37) Pink Diamond

@Catherine - What were the obvious improvements that you noticed when you did Dr Schulze's programs?

(05 Sep '12, 15:41) Pink Diamond

@Pink Diamond The skin is the most obvious area of improvement - after a cleanse my skin always looked amazing and a general feeling of well being and clear headedness. I had my iris photographed (iridology) three times during the period and you could see the improvement - that is a sign that improvement was taking place internally - oh and cleansing makes your eyes clearer/sparklier.

I use Oil Pulling. You take some unrefined sesame oil and swish it around your mouth for 20 minutes. Spit it out and rinse with salted water. It's easy and seems to work well. Peace

@Brian - Thanks for your answer. What kind of improvements do you see in yourself?

(06 Sep '12, 05:33) Pink Diamond

@Pink- Cleaner mouth and breath, whiter teeth, better bowel movements :)

(07 Sep '12, 05:22) Brian

I have tried Bashar's vit C and MSM - and yes, it does seem to give your skin a glow from the inside out, almost immediately (well, the next day). I have continued off and on with this one, admittedly for pure vanity purposes!! I haven't done any other methods of body detoxification because currently my beliefs are that it won't be an enjoyable experience :-)

I find that the more I go mucking around on the internet for body cures, natural health, what you should and shouldn't eat, etc, it is a bit of a slippery slope - in the end if you believe or hope it will help you, it usually does to a certain degree. But then something else invariably rears its angry head which you then have to go and research and find the next best greatest "cure". Next thing you know, you are surrounded in a mountain of supplements and health protocols. After years of this, I am thinking a more direct approach may be in detoxing one's thoughts and understanding intimately where your beliefs lie - to understand what may be impeding or disallowing the full expression of your physical form.

For me, I find that detoxing the body assists in detoxing the mind, since they are interconnected. I am feeling what you said about getting into all those "cures." I've certainly been there and done that. I'm not sorry, and I haven't cut out supplements and things liek oil pulling completely, but I am doing a lot less these days, also eating much less. I'm semi-breatharian.

this is a letter from a friend that helped me.

I forgot to tell you about a step 1 for your health.

The first step for health is to: detox, first, use "red desert clay" or a similar product to clean out the "heavy metals" and other toxic things in the body. the "red desert clay" is just a clay that you can eat, take a bath with to detox your body of "bad materials"

Second step: after you cleans yourself, start by putting in great and all natural vitamins and minerals, like the ones in "Activz" (not to sound like an infomercial, but if you're taking any other vitamins, STOP! they could be hurting your body).

Third step: now start to eat an all Amino Acid "diet"

Maybe buy a juicer to make a lower sugar fruit juices (store boughten brand have colorings and extra surgar)

.............................................................................................................. Side note: above-mentioned steps is where you can start for you bodie's health, for your mind you may want to use crystals and I found a website on thoses, that may increase your connection with Treboryitne.


First, I'm NOT a doctor (but your doctor is NOT a nutritionist and I am not one of those either). But this works for me and it may work for you!

What I have been doing:

  1. Taking my weight, let's say 200lbs, cutting it in half (100) and using this to calculate the amount in ounces of water I should be drinking in a day (100oz)

  2. Water its self is good, but add (like I do) some lemon juice makes it taste great (plus helps your Liver, and helps keep you alkaline)!

  3. In hot water, make some Green Tea with ginseng (strawberries flakes like I do, I have a dehydration machine) with some lemon juice. Also (to ward off high blood sugar levels) in hot water or your tea add some Cinnamon (about a teaspoon full)

  4. Taking your height in inches let's say 72", cut that in half, 36", that should be about how big your waist should be.

  5. Eat a "diet" (I hate that word, because of the first three letters) of all! the Amino Acids groups:

eggs, soy protein, seaweed, turkey, chicken, lamb, cheese, and fish

Soy protein concentrate Peanuts Wheat germ Almonds Oat Beans, pinto, cooked Lentils, cooked Chickpea, cooked Corn, yellow Rice, brown, medium-grain, cooked

lysine: Catfish, channel, farmed, raw Chicken, roasting, meat and skin, cooked, roasted Beef, ground, 90% lean/10% fat, cooked Soybean, mature seeds, Soybean, mature seeds, sprouts (sprouting decreases the lysine content). Winged Bean (aka Goa Bean or Asparagus Pea), mature seeds, Lentil, pink, Lentil, sprouts, raw (sprouting increases the lysine content). Parmesan cheese, grated Azuki bean (adzuki beans), mature seeds, raw Milk, non-fat Egg (food), whole, raw, Pea, split, mature seeds, raw. Kidney Bean, mature seeds, raw. Chickpea, (garbanzo beans, bengal gram), mature seeds, raw. Navy Bean, mature seeds, raw. Amaranth, grain, uncooked. Soy, as well as meat (specifically red meat, lamb, pork, and poultry), cheese (particularly Parmesan), certain fish (such as cod and sardines), and eggs.

Methionine: Sesame seeds flour (low fat) Brazil nutsSoy protein concentrate Wheat germ Oat Peanuts Chickpea Corn, yellow Almonds Beans, pinto, cooked Lentils, cooked Rice, brown, medium-grain, cooked

Phenylalanine: Soy protein isolate Peanut flour, defatted Seeds, sesame flour, low-fat Egg, whole, dried Soy flour, defatted Soy meal, defatted, raw Fish, whitefish, dried (Alaska Native) Tofu, dried-frozen (koyadofu) Cheese, parmesan, shredded

Tryptophan: egg, white, dried spirulina, dried cod, atlantic, dried soybeans, raw pumpkin seed cheese, Parmesan caribou sesame seed cheese, cheddar sunflower seed pork, chop turkey chicken beef salmon lamb, chop perch, Atlantic egg wheat flour, white baking chocolate, unsweetened milk rice, white oatmeal, cooked potatoes, russet, banana.

Valine: Soy protein isolate Egg, whole, dried Cheese, parmesan, shredded Seeds, sesame flour, low-fat CRACKER BARREL, grilled sirloin steak Smelt, dried (Alaska Native) Fish, whitefish, dried (Alaska Native) Cheese, parmesan, grated Cheese, parmesan, hard

.............................................................................................................. Other things that may help:

Resveratrol (anti-aging)

kangen water (Should NOT have stop using this product) (helps with keeping you alkaline) (I help with the sales of the machines that makes the alkaline water)

cocoa nuggets (found a website for them)



Coq 10



Omega 3 6 9

Red desert clay "Calcium Montmorillonite (tecopia essentia)"

Activz (Should not have stopped taking this product either) "an all around vitamin and mineral supplement" (I use to help sell this too) can get you some

Brewers yeast

Wisconsin ginseng


Hawthorne berries



Well I watch a YouTube member/channel: thepeopleschemist he has said very interesting things about health, you should watch some/all of his videos postings.

Plus maybe, take into consideration my opinion on (cow's) milk: humans should not really be drinking (cow's) milk. Some vitamins and minerals are the same but above and beyond that, It's not good for us. Maybe consider drinking: almond, soy or coconut milk instead.

@TReb - Thanks for your answer. Some very good things to try there.

(05 Sep '12, 14:57) Pink Diamond

Soak your feet in Epsom salts- it rids your body of a lot of bad stuff like cholesterol, especially. It's easy, and a nice way to start on the detoxifying path. I also recommend replacing all your beverages with water- pure H2O-- it's great for flushing out everything.
