I have just started the detox and only into day 2 of the tablets. I feel great so far.
I would like to get my daughter on it and she is 16 and a little over weight.
Do you think this would be suitable for her? I dont think she would take that amount of tablets in one go. Or what about the shakes get her on to them. What are you thoughts.
Any advice would be great.
Thanks heaps sueann Jones
Hi I am completing my 5th day of 'preparation' and will start on my detox supplements from the 10-day Detox programme tomorrow. I am already finding I am incredibly tired, with headaches and have been very blocked up. Is this to be expected?
Yes this is normal in the early stages, especially the first 2-3 days, but once you start taking the herbs and they get working in your system you should find your bowel start to release extra solid material and you will start to feel great. Please let us know how you get on.
i am now on day 5 of the detox and have been experiencing numbness in my legs for the past few days, particularly at night. Its not painful, but quite uncomfortable and I find myself waking up in the middle of the night because of it...is this normal? could it also be because I have also given up on coffee?
Hi, I brought this detox last year, I want to do it now, but have recently moved and can't find the instruction book. I have done a number of detoxs in the past and know that with some of them you slowly increase the number of pills and on the bottles it says take 1-5.I want to make sure I get the best results.
Today I have purchased Herbal n Slim after speaking with Moira outside North Shore health shop a couple of weeks ago. however just about all your reviews are for results achieved with the 5 or 10 day ultimate herbal cleanse.
My reason for purchasing was to cleanse and kick start some weight loss. I am not overweight but would like to lose 3/4kg. I Exercise daily and am a very fit 62 yr old. Feeling bloated and skirts/pants not fitting as comfortably as they should.
To achieve my goals have I purchased the correct product?
My health has declined in the last couple of months, bloods have revealed iron deficiency and possible thyroid dysfunction. I have coeliacs and I suspect I have IBS.
One of my more recent symptoms is weight loss, and while I am interested in taking your herbal detox, I don't want to lose more weight as I am at quite a low weight now already. Is it therefore advisable to do the herbal detox now or should I wait until my weight had increased - presuming it will.
I have just ordered the herbal detox. Once I have finished that is it Ok to go straight onto the herbal slim dtox I am trying to lose 10-15 Kgs and become healthy
The herbal Slim is the perfect follow up program and you should be able to achieve 15kg by following the Herbal Detox and Herbal Slim one after the other. Eat as much raw food as you can and your results will be amazing.
Hi Is there any digestive enzymes that is safe to take when pregnant. I am just over 12 weeks and having already been battling constipation and have lived most of my live with this (apparently IBS) and poor digestion/indigestion. I have taken your digest-eze before but see it has fennel seeds and licorice root in and from what i've read these aren't recommended in pregnancy. Can you shed any light for me. Thanks Vanessa
These is a lot of negative stuff about herbs and pregnancy but you can rest assured licorice and fennel will not cause any upset to baby and especially if you are over 12 weeks you are totally safe. You can easily have 2-3 digezaid without any concerns. I hope that helps.
Hi, I have not been to the bathroom for three weeks and obviously i am getting desperate to go as i am in so much pain and very uncomfortable...my colonic therapist has recommended i go on your detox. I mainly eat fresh veges and fruit i have had a few nuts and cereals over the last few days..can i still start the detox tomorrow as i need to get things working. Is coffee off the menu with this detox? Thank you very much for your help
Hi Linda, The detox 'n slim smoothies twice daily will get you regular again, but you may also need to relax in an epsom salt bath for a couple of hours for a couple of nights, and massage some lavender oil into your lower spine and abdomen to really help you relax. I highly recommend hot chilli, raw onions, garlic, ginger, cider vinegar and lemons added to your food in generous amounts over the next week to trigger the digestive process. Do not cut back on your food quantity as this can be the worst thing to do, but do have a lot of extra fluids, especially orange juice, grape juice and tomato juice. I would love to hear how it goes.
Im a 24yr old male, and weigh close to 90kg. Im around 5'6. I carry most of my weight around my waist. I plan to quit drinking etc from February to sort it out as this is the biggest ive ever been. What products do you recommend? I dont have an endless budget though.. I definitely want to do a full detox, but what else should i be doing in terms of exersize etc?
Yes you could lose some weight by doing the detox, but the longer term program is better for losing it around the waist, especially if its external fat. This combination would probably work best for you over 2 months http://www.brettelliott.co.nz/shop/two-month-steady-slim-combo and a small amount of exercise will be enough, like walking 20 minutes 3 x weekly, or 20 push ups and 20 sit ups 3 x weekly or even both. That's plenty and the herbs will give you the extra positive energy to feel like doing do this. I look forward to hearing your success story.
This my first time doing a detox like this and i am just wondering which would be better for me out of the detox and the detox slim, I have bad IBS, so am hoping to help with that aswell as kick starting a new healthy living/ eating regime
Sorry for the late reply, yes the detox has a great history of helping people heal IBS and no problem with interaction with the Pill. Go ahead with confidence.
Hi, on the lead in days prior to your detox programme and have been surfing web to find recipes etc and I came across a you tube clip that suggest you can use sundries toms and olives- is this okay? And also in your booklet you mention using a little hummus- again is this okay? I am doing the ten day programme. Many thanks
Yes to all of the above, but keep Hummus to a minimum.
Interesting looking products. Few quick queries
With the 400 capsules for 30 days this equates to approx 13 per day. in the herbs part 2 you state up to 40 per day so assume the amount per day drops off for stage 3?
Do you have a powder option as I struggle with that amount of caps a day.
One of the benefit highlights is weight loss. I am 1.76m tall and 70kgs so definitely do not need to lose weight.
As a triathlete how does hard exercise go through your detox programme?
Hi, I recently did your detox about 6 weeks ago and went straight onto your herbal slim pills twice daily. I feel great heaps of energy and have lost lots of weight...I excercise 5 times a week with a mixture of strength and aerobic training. The only problem I am having is I am really feeling the cold more than normal..cold to the bone when other people are warm..is this normal? Also when I finish the herbal slim where do I go from there.. do I take the detox and slim sachets daily or??
Hi there, I was thinking of doing a detox as I was in hospital back in June for 2 weeks as I had an unsuspected bleed on my kidney...so cut things short I needed a blood transfusion, operations ect ect and nearly didn't make it (Im only 28) while I was in hospital I took LOADS of drugs :( as I was in a huge amount of pain..... Im all better now but since then have felt sluggish and no energy and would like to do a detox as I have taken so much drugs recently and Im thinking this is why Im not feeling the best.... could you please suggest which one I should do! Thanks, Lisa
I would suggest the gentle 50 day detox, which is just using the Ultimate Herbal Detox over 50 days at a low dose. You only need one pack and just take 8 capsules daily for 50 days. I hope that helps. Brett
Hello. Where you suggest almond or rice milk can I use soya instead? Is honey as a sweetener ok? (If I feel I need it in teas) Also, how important are the juices? I don't own a juicer and I'm guessing ready-made juices that are on the market are out. Can I have more fresh hot soups than anything? Many thanks, Marina
Yes Soya milk and honey are OK. You can use ready made juices if you need to, just go for the best quality ones like fresh squeezed for example. Also lots of soups can be used, especially for dinners.
