I did this cleanse four or five years ago. I was a 280lb vegan when I started. I switched my diet to the recomended one with no issues but I spent the $ on organic grass fed meat. The cleanse itself is expensive but it was some of the best $ Iíve ever spent.
I got pregnant with my first child when I was 21. I think I was 50 when I did this cleanse. From the time I was a few months along until I did this cleanse I could not even drink water without having extreme heartburn. My heartburn stopped. I lost 100 lbs. Iíve always been healthy, never get sick but the heartburn was a major factor in my life & I was always fat, even on a whole food vegan diet. Iíve always had very physical jobs & I walk every day as well. Not sure I had candida, but I had a number of the things on the ďcould beĒ list active in my life. I had a very strong impression that this cleanse would help me even though it meant eating meat which I hadnít done in years. The heartburn alone made it well worth every dime. I really never cared about being fat, It never impared my life in any way. But it is nice to be able to buy clothes that actually fit. I gained back some of it a year later but have lost even more after making some other changes. I went raw for awhile & dropped about 80lbs. Iím sitting at 148 now which is less then I weighed at 20. I must say that being thinner has made no difference in how I feel, which always suprises folks.
So if your thinking about this cleanse and wondering if itís worth the $ YES IT IS. It may correct things youíre not expecting along the way & is well worth any change in diet you have to make for a few months. Oh & the baths are wonderful. To this day I still take a hot soak of at least 1/2 an hour every dayÖ.
