Cleansing Programs Quick Guide

Read below "Why Cleansing Is Important"

Nature's Sunshine has several prepackaged cleansing programs. These programs meet a wide variety of needs. Here are some of the options to choose from.

Candida Clear is a program that helps get rid of yeast and fungal infections, but it can also be helpful for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).


CleanStart is NSP's most popular cleansing program.
It contains a fiber packet as well as supplements to cleanse the colon.




Dieter's Cleanse is a cleanse that was designed to use at the start of a weight loss program. However, it can also be used as a general cleansing program even if you're not trying to lose weight.


Para-Cleanse is a parasite cleansing program, which is also helpful for SIBO.

Tiao He Cleanse is a 15-day nutritional program designed to help the body achieve tiao he - balance and harmony.
It combines Chinese nutritional and Western herbal experience.

Gut Cleansing
The Tiao He Cleanse is designed to support the cleansing mechanisms of the body by targeting the intestinal and digestive systems.

The therapy Cleansing Programs helps deal with Toxic Overload, one of the root causes of disease.


Toxins are discharged from the body by the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, colon, lungs and skin.
As more and more toxins accumulate in our system, they place severe stress on these organs of elimination. With continued accumulation, the liver, kidneys, and other organs begin to malfunction, causing a weakening of the immune system. The endocrine glands no longer secrete the proper amounts of hormones into the bloodstream - metabolism slows, producing a hospitable environment for illness.

The gradual accumulation of low levels of toxins cannot yet be measured by conventional analytical methods, so many doctors deny their existence. As instrumentation and measuring methods become more sophisticated, such toxic states will be recognized as dangerous.

"Modern chemistry keeps insects from ravaging crops, lifts stains from carpets, and saves lives. But the ubiquity of chemicals is taking a toll. Many of the compounds absorbed by the body stay there for years and fears about their health effects are growing. (National Geographic)

My journalist-as-guinea-pig experiment is taking a disturbing turn. A Swedish chemist is on the phone, talking about flame retardants, chemicals added for safety to just about any product that can burn. Found in mattresses, carpets, the plastic casing of televisions, electronic circuit boards, and automobiles, flame retardants save hundreds of lives a year in the United States alone. These, however, are where they should not be: inside my body.

Ake Bergman of Stockholm University tells me he has received the results of a chemical analysis of my blood, which measured levels of flame-retarding compounds called polybrominated diphenyl ethers. In mice and rats, high doses of PBDEs interfere with thyroid function, cause reproductive and neurological problems, and hamper neurological development. Little is known about their impact on human health.

"I hope you are not nervous, but this concentration is very high, Bergman says with a light Swedish accent. My blood level of one particularly toxic PBDE, found primarily in U.S.-made products, is 10 times the average found in a small study of U.S. residents and more than 200 times the average in Sweden. The news about another PBDE variant, also toxic to animals is nearly as bad. My levels would be high even if I were a worker in a factory making the stuff, Bergman says.

The European Union gave initial approval to a measure called REACH "Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals" which would require companies to prove the substances they market or use are safe, or that the benefits outweigh any risks. The bill, which the chemical industry and the U.S. government oppose, would also encourage companies to find safer alternatives to suspect flame retardants, pesticides, solvents, and other chemicals. That would give a boost to the so-called green chemistry movement, a search for alternatives that is already under way in laboratories on both sides of the Atlantic.

In fact I'm a writer engaged in a journey of chemical self-discovery. Last fall I had myself tested for 320 chemicals I might have picked up from food, drink, the air I breathe, and the products that touch my skin, and my own secret stash of compounds acquired by merely living. It includes older chemicals that I might have been exposed to decades ago, such as DDT and PCBs; pollutants like lead, mercury, and dioxins; newer pesticides and plastic ingredients; and the near-miraculous compounds that lurk just beneath the surface of modern life, making shampoos fragrant, pans nonstick, and fabrics water-resistant and fire-safe.

The tests are too expensive for most individuals. National Geographic paid for mine, which would normally cost around $15,000 and only a few labs have the technical expertise to detect the trace amounts involved. I ran the tests to learn what substances build up in a typical American over a lifetime, and where they might come from. I was also searching for a way to think about risks, benefits, and uncertainty -the complex trade-offs embodied in the chemical "body burden" that swirls around inside all of us."

Chemical Overload: The Shocking Numbers

Over 4 million distinct chemical compounds have been formulated over the last half-decade.
At least one quarter million new chemical formulations are produced every year.
More than 400 chemicals have been found in human tissues and fluids, many of these are known carcinogens.
On average, 500 different chemicals can be found in American homes.
Over 3,000 chemicals can be legally added to our foods.
Our drinking water contains more than 700 chemicals.
In the cosmetic and perfume industries alone, over 800 neurotoxic compounds have been used.

Two Reasons To Cleanse

1. Our Modern World Is an Unhealthy World.
Our bodies are brilliantly designed to filter toxic chemicals and to keep us healthy despite the changing environments. In this modern world, we are exposed daily to more toxic chemicals than the human body can sufficiently filter. However, Americans are now being saturated with toxic chemicals to the point of overload.
Chemicals can mimic hormones, disrupting hormone balance and function in children and adults. Toxic chemicals and heavy metals can damage the sheathing, the cushion that surrounds the nerves. Affecting the nervous system in this manner can create nervousness, exhaustion, anxiety, panic, and pain in the joints and muscles of the body.

2. Support the Liver and Kidneys.
The liver is designed to act as a filter for the body. It can handle five times more toxic chemicals than it should ever have to process. Because we bombard our bodies with toxic chemicals and heavy metals, the liver is stressed and must work overtime. When the liver is unable to process the toxic chemicals in the body, the kidneys support the detoxification process. This can result in extreme fatigue and serious health issues with the kidneys and other body organs.

Signs You May Need To Cleanse

Because it can be very difficult to measure the exact toxin levels in our bodies, we need to pay attention to a variety of different symptoms we may have while experiencing a toxic overload. Symptoms that indicate the need for a detox or cleanse can vary greatly. Some common early indicators of exposure to toxic chemicals include fatigue or an overall lack of energy.

If you are getting enough sleep at night, eating right, and not exerting yourself too much physically yet you still feel tired and lethargic, it may be a sign that you need a cleanse. Another early marker of toxic excess is mild intestinal discomfort including cramps, flatulence, gas, and bloating.

More common and even obvious symptoms that suggest you may need to detoxify include serious and widespread diseases like: Obesity, Diabetes, Heart disease, cancer.

Other issues that indicate a cleanse or detox program is needed may include:
Anemia, Arteriosclerosis, Bacterial infections, Bladder infections, Bone and Joints disorders, Dental problems, Infertility, Inflammation, Kidney stones, Muskulo-Skeleton disorders, Pancreatic dysfunction, Respiratory illness, Sinusitis, Thyroid disorders, Ulcers, Urinary issues.
