Take Lean N Clean once a day for the first one to two weeks, then advance to 2 doses a day for 6 weeks, then advance to 3 doses a day for 4 to 6 weeks, then 1 to 2 doses a day for maintenance thereafter. Be sure to take at least 3-4 cups of water with each dose.
These step-up measures are necessary to avoid severe detox cleanse reactions. Detox cleanse reactions occur when you attempt to cleanse too quickly. Detox cleanse reactions may include, but are not limited to headache, skin eruption, constipation, and other symptoms you are suffering due to the accumulated toxic substances being released too quickly, but they will disappear gradually. Your abdomen may swell considerably due to the old feces swelling up with water in the process of being softened by intestinal cleanser giving you the "bloating" feeling. You may also experience temporary increases in gas in your colon. Meanwhile, the toxins trapped in dried up fecal matter are being released. (Note: older people who have never done intestinal cleansing usually experience more cleansing reactions than people who have or younger people). Each pound of hardened feces will expand and weigh several pounds when it finally leaves the body. Once all the old feces are removed, your abdomen will not swell. When you have completed the intestinal cleansing, your abdomen will be flatter, you will have lost inches and most importantly your health will be improved. You may notice improvement or disappearance of symptoms of chronic illnesses you now have.
Lean-N-Clean is not a laxative. It is a stool softener and bulking agent that has intestinal cleansing and body detox properties. It does not irritate your intestinal mucosa. However, it does not relieve constipation immediately like irritant/stimulant laxatives. If you have never done intestinal cleansing before and are experiencing worsening of constipation, bloating or gas after taking Lean-N-Clean, it is an indication that you have a significant accumulation of putrefied and dried up fecal matter in your colon. It may be necessary for you to take a stronger laxative such as senna (Sennakot), Milk of Magnesia or use a saline or olive oil enema initially to help remove the re-moistened old fecal matter (May use enema daily until the initial constipation is overcome). If you are habituated (addicted) to irritant or stimulant laxatives such as various chemical laxatives (Correctal, Ex-lax, etc.) or herbal laxatives (Senna, Cascara Sagrada, Rhubarb Root or Buckthorn), you are suffering from "lazy bowel syndrome," you might not be able to stop these laxatives right away. You need to wean yourself off, meaning you need to continue to take them in addition to taking Lean-N-Clean and decrease the dosage and frequency of the irritant laxative gradually while increasing the frequency of Lean-N-Clean gradually.
COLONICS are colon irrigations using many gallons of warm water. Several ounces at a time are given by the colonic operator, usually a Certified Colon Therapist, with the water flow and expulsion under the control of the operator, while the patient lies relaxed on an appropriate table, which is connected to the colonic equipment. A colonic usually takes 30 minutes to complete. The therapist should massage the patient's abdominal area with one hand to help loosen up the old fecal matter attached to the mucous membranes of the colon wall while controlling the water flow with the other hand. An experienced colon therapist can feel the water movement in the patient's colon and can tell if there are obstructions in the colon. The person receiving the colonic can observe what passes out from his/her colon by looking at reflection of the colonic tubes in the mirror hung on the ceiling. A colonic is much more effective in cleansing the entire colon if done the right way whereas an enema can only take care of the descending colon, which is only about one third of the entire colon.
