Fortunately there are things you can do to avoid or reduce any unwanted symptoms of die-off and to get the best results from your cleanse.
1. Drink lots of water and eat healthy whole foods
as much as possible. Avoid sugar, processed and refined grains and carbohydrates. Parasites love junk food and simple carbs as an easy food source. Following an elimination diet for a few weeks before starting your cleanse can be very helpful to minimize any unpleasant symptoms.
2. Take probiotics, drink apple cider vinegar, and eat homemade fermented foods such as yoghurt, milk kefir, sauerkraut, or beet kvass. When you evict the parasites from your gut there will be some empty real estate up for grabs in your colon and you’ll want to make sure you set up for good neighbours to move in rather than more intruders. Plus your beneficial bacteria help you eliminate toxins from your gut, chelate heavy metals, modulate your immune system, and fight off pathogens, to further assist the cleansing.
3. If you do experience a healing crisis, it is important to be gentle with yourself and take it slow. A soak in a hot bath with ½ cup of Epsom salts can help to draw toxins out, soothe your nervous system, as well as provide you with the highly sought after mineral magnesium.
4. Sleep, some of the most powerful healing and regeneration occurs when you sleep. Aim for at least 7 hours a night.
5. Absorbent materials such as activated charcoal, diatomaceous earth, bentonite clay, or our
Zeo-Co, are great tools to have up your sleeve to help bind to toxins in the gut and escort them out the body. This is a tremendous help to the liver and provides quick relief of uncomfortable detox symptoms.
