CLEAN Cleanse: Finished! Advice and Do-It-Yourself CLEAN Kit

CLEAN Cleanse: Finished! Advice and Do-It-Yourself CLEAN Kit

All done! 21 days complete.

I feel great. My skin looks stel­lar. I learned that this was not just about the smooth­ies and a restrict­ed diet. It became about remem­ber­ing to breathe, to slow down (which I always con­fused with lazi­ness), and to stop doing a mil­lion things at once. I relearned how to stop sac­ri­ficing the present moment for review­ing the lengthy to-do lists swirling in my head. I feel bal­anced, I feel calm, and my out­ward appear­ance is clear­ly reflect­ing that. I feel like I did a few years ago, before I had a bajil­lion projects. I feel like I had a major reboot.

My final thoughts and post-cleanse plans

In a word? A-frig­gin-maz­ing.

This is the only cleanse I have real­ly been able to stick to because it is super easy and I noticed a BIG dif­fer­ence with­in a mat­ter of days. When some­thing is sim­ple and results-dri­ven, it acts to moti­vate you to keep going. That is exact­ly what I need­ed, and that is exact­ly what I got.

It has been about sev­en days post-cleanse and I have con­tin­ued hav­ing a love­ly smooth­ie for break­fast and a hearty sal­ad with pas­tured organ­ic chick­en, wild-caught fish, or grass-fed organ­ic beef for lunch. Din­ner has been what­ev­er I feel like – I have had smooth­ies for some din­ners, and on oth­er nights it has been a full meal, like a burg­er pat­ty with a bunch of deli­cious top­pers or chick­en tikka from my favorite Indi­an restau­rant. We’ll see how things go, but for now, I do not want to ven­ture far off my EBG/Clean guide­li­nes.

Ah yes, and I have also con­firmed two foods that do not agree with me. One is choco­late, which has given me rash­es in the past. I had some choco­late post-cleanse and bam! rash on my hands. Bum­mer. The oth­er is soy, which breaks me out like a ban­shee. No thanks, I’d rather have clear skin than soy sauce.

Start your own CLEAN adventure

 Below are some must-have items for your CLEAN cleanse. Remem­ber, this is not just a cleanse – it’s also like a vaca­tion and a lengthy beau­ty rit­u­al all in one. Enjoy your­self! 

1. The CLEAN book. This is a must-have. It walks you through the whys, hows, and all the nit­ty grit­ty details you will want to know before and dur­ing your cleanse. Make sure you read it cov­er-to-cov­er. Life Lesson #5718: Skim­ming gets you in trou­ble.

2. The CLEAN sup­ple­ment kit or a do-it-your­self sup­ple­ment kit (detailed below). I had a great expe­ri­ence with the CLEAN kit and I enjoyed the ease-of-use and sim­plic­i­ty it gave me, so if you have the funds avail­able, I do rec­om­mend it.

3. Time (sor­ry, no link, since it’s not for sale trololol). You do not want to rush this. You do not want to feel crammed or stressed. That defeats the pur­pose. So set aside a block of time that you know will be a bit calmer at work or school (prefer­ably when you’re not in school). Take some vaca­tion time or sick days, and enjoy your­self. This is not a hard pro­gram, but to have a good expe­ri­ence, you need to be pre­pared and relaxed.

4. Some extra spend­ing mon­ey. This will real­ly come in handy when you feel like a relax­ing mas­sage (any­where from $30-$150+ depend­ing on where you live), a trip to the aes­theti­cian for a facial (~$80), or a colon hydrother­a­py ses­sion ($35-$75). Save up a lit­tle so you can try to have at least $200 extra on hand for some lit­tle lux­u­ries (or beau­ty emer­gen­cies). Believe me, it will be worth it.

Rec­om­mend­ed (but option­al) items for your CLEAN cleanse.

1. A dry body brush. This real­ly felt lux­u­ri­ous and made a huge dif­fer­ence for my skin. I end­ed up switch­ing between dry body brush­ing and mak­ing my own sea salt scrub, so you can do the same or do just sea salt (or Epsom salt) scrubs 2–3 times per week.

2. Body oil (scroll down for my DIY recipe as well as store-bought rec­om­men­da­tions). Right after a show­er, a nice body oil will add that lit­tle extra “some­thing” to your morn­ing or evening rit­u­al. Your skin may go through some changes dur­ing the cleanse, and it’s a good idea to keep it hydrat­ed and pro­tect­ed, which helps pre­vent blem­ish­es.

Do-it-yourself CLEAN supplement kit

Ask your med­ical prac­ti­tion­er for advice on sup­ple­men­ta­tion, espe­cial­ly if you have a pre­ex­ist­ing med­ical con­di­tion. Cer­tain herbs do have con­traindi­ca­tions, so it’s impor­tant to do fur­ther research and ref­er­ence your con­di­tion if need­ed.

 The­se rec­om­men­da­tions are based entire­ly on what is rec­om­mend­ed by Dr. Junger and what comes in the CLEAN pro­gram kit, which retails for $425.

You will prob­a­bly need about 2 tubs of pro­tein for the 21 days. You should only need one of every­thing else. I would esti­mate about $220 for the entire 21-day DIY kit. If you’re on a tighter bud­get, either get a few things in incre­ments or just pur­chase the absolute essen­tials: pro­tein pow­der plus one thing you think you will need for your unique sit­u­a­tion (like enzymes or mag­ne­sium).

Feel free to shop around and gath­er your mate­ri­als over the course of a mon­th or two so you do not strain your bud­get or feel over­whelmed. When hunt­ing around for brands, always look for qual­i­ty ingre­di­ents and no added fillers or poten­tial aller­gens, like tita­ni­um diox­ide, soy, milk, arti­fi­cial col­ors, etc. 

1. Pro­tein pow­der. Pro­tein is essen­tial for liv­er func­tion, as well as an over­all healthy body, hair, and nails. On this cleanse, you will def­i­nite­ly need to sup­port your­self with pro­tein, since the only source of solid pro­tein will be com­ing from lunch and that is just not enough to sus­tain or encour­age a healthy sys­tem. A pro­tein pow­der that includes vit­a­mins or min­er­als might also be ben­e­fi­cial to you if you find it dif­fi­cult to make hearty smooth­ies or com­plete meals for lunch.

Rec­om­mend­ed options to choose from:

2. Enzymes. This may or may not be help­ful for you. Per­son­al­ly, I found that I did not need them. If you have diges­tion issues, con­sid­er a good diges­tive enzyme blend and/or HCL.

Rec­om­mend­ed options to choose from:

3. Pro­bi­otics. Estab­lish­ing good bac­te­ria in your diges­tive tract is impor­tant for immu­ni­ty, weight man­age­ment, and nutri­ent con­ver­sion and assim­i­la­tion. You’re estab­lish­ing a good foun­da­tion for good bac­te­ria with all the good food you will be eat­ing, so adding them in is the next step. Start with one cap­sule either before break­fast or before bed­time, then up it to twice per day.

Rec­om­mend­ed options to choose from:

4. Liv­er sup­port. I did this in the form of tea and two cap­sules per day of turmer­ic and milk thistle (each). There are also liq­uid and cap­sule blends that you may also find use­ful if you can­not (or do not) drink tea dur­ing the day.

Rec­om­mend­ed options to choose from:

5. Mag­ne­sium. Let’s be blunt here: you need to poop every day, espe­cial­ly dur­ing this cleanse. Mag­ne­sium helps you do that, and it’s a cheap­er alter­na­tive to get­ting colon hydrother­a­py (those are about $70 per ses­sion where I am — yikes!). Nat­u­ral Calm is my one and only rec­om­men­da­tion because it doesn’t taste hor­ri­fic and it does the job it’s sup­posed to do.

6. Aloe juice (preser­v­a­tive-free). Anoth­er great poop­er helper. It is also anti-inflam­ma­to­ry, aids diges­tion, and shows promise in reg­u­lat­ing cho­les­terol (and even PCOS). I will drink an ounce or two if I have some diges­tive upset or if I ate too large of a meal. Aloe juice belongs in everyone’s lit­tle emer­gen­cy kit.

7. Gar­lic. Either incor­po­rate gar­lic gloves (raw or cooked) into your meals as often as pos­si­ble dur­ing the cleanse, or sup­ple­ment with some­thing like Kyolic liq­uid. Per­son­al­ly, I did both because I love gar­lic. Gar­lic is antibac­te­ri­al and anti­fun­gal, plus it’s rich in sul­fur and great for the skin. You can’t go wrong with gar­lic! (Hint: keep your gar­lic bulbs in the fridge, as the chill helps increase the sul­fur com­pounds, par­tic­u­lar­ly allicin.)

Let me know if you have any ques­tions. When do you plan to start your Clean pro­gram?

  1. Hi, I had a ques­tion about facials. I went to have a facial done at a rep­utable salon in my area. It’s five-star and top-rat­ed, so I was sure it would be a good one. I have a slight blackhead/acne prob­lem, so the facial­ist decid­ed to do black­head extrac­tions. She did them all over my face. Every­where, tem­ples (ouch), fore­head, sides of nose (ouc­c­c­c­ch), chin, cheeks, EVERYWHERE. It was by far the most painful thing I’ve ever had done to me in my life and after­wards, my whole face had raised red bumps where the extrac­tions were done. Some of them were bloody (like when you pop a zit and it starts bleed­ing). My face felt bruised for at least a day after­wards. The facial­ist said after­wards that all of them were very dry and deep. And she didn’t steam my face before she did it either. What are your thoughts on extrac­tions? Nec­es­sary? Are they sup­posed to hurt and leave your face look­ing so hor­ri­ble after?? Thanks. 

    Reply
    • Hi Belle! Sounds like you had a great facial, actu­al­ly! If you’re not used to extrac­tions, yes, they will hurt. Since she said your black­heads were deep and dry, make sure you are con­sum­ing enough water and fat, and exfo­li­at­ing a few times per week (check out Skin Apotheke Ubtan Scrub or do a yogurt mask for a gen­tle lac­tic acid exfo­li­a­tion). Prop­er facials with prop­er extrac­tions are not sup­posed to leave you look­ing pret­ty. If you’re get­ting a frilly facial, then yes, you’ll leave look­ing glow­ing and such, but it won’t have done much to clean your skin. My aes­theti­cian (she’s amaz­ing — very “old school” as she was an aes­theti­cian in Yugoslavia for about 20 years) informed me that wom­en in Europe would hide out for a day or two after their facial and avoid mirrors…and house­work (to avoid dirt and sweat, I sup­pose). 😉 Facials are tak­en very seri­ous­ly, and they are meant to remove all the junk and give you a clean slate. Your skin will calm down and look gor­geous in the next few days, but in the mean­time, it’s essen­tial that you sleep on a fresh, clean pil­low­case, do not touch your face, and use fresh hand and face tow­els. Do not exfo­li­ate or use the afore­men­tioned yogurt mask for at least 5–7 days after your facial. Let your skin recov­er first.

  5. Hi Steph,

    I have a ques­tion about the Nat­ural Calm: look­ing from the ingre­di­ents and Sup­ple­ment Facts, do you think Flo­ra Flo­radix Cal­ci­um-Mag­ne­sium Liq­uid by Flo­ra Health can be a good sub­sti­tute for the Nat­u­ral Calm or you still go with the Nat­u­ral calm ? 

    Do you think both prod­ucts can help with PMS; espe­cial­ly cramps ? 

    Thank you

    • Hi Valerie, go with the one you are more com­fort­able with and that has the most mag­ne­sium per serv­ing. And yes, mag­ne­sium can cer­tain­ly help with cramps, but I am not aware of it help­ing with oth­er PMS symp­toms.

I used to have hor­ri­ble cramps, but when I take RRE dai­ly, I have no cramp­ing around that time. The only con? No real warn­ing when it’s start­ing. 😉 I hope this helps!!!

  6. Hi Steph, this is off-top­ic but might I ask if you con­tin­ue to take MSM sup­ple­ments? For the past year and a half I’ve been suf­fer­ing from active facial acne of the type that leaves indent­ed scar­ring. I have unhealed indent­ed scars from when this acne first began, in addi­tion to many upset­ting new­er ones. Your book and some of your old­er posts (from cir­ca 2010) dis­cuss the poten­tial of tak­ing MSM sup­ple­ments as a heal­ing treat­ment for the­se scars, as well as as a pos­si­ble treat­ment for acne in gen­er­al. A few weeks ago I pur­chased a large tub of dis­tilled MSM pow­der to make my own top­i­cal gel, how­ev­er I’m opti­mistic that tak­ing it inter­nal­ly might be more effec­tive. You men­tion in an old post that you used to take 2 tea­spoons of pow­der a day. Do you think that would be a good quan­ti­ty for me to take to treat my scars? Should I take one tea­spoon in the morn­ing, and one at din­ner? Most of the time I hear of peo­ple tak­ing the cap­sules in mg quan­ti­ties. For that rea­son I’m a lit­tle uncer­tain as to how much to give myself in the pow­der form (I’d like to first use up the tub of pow­der I already have before mak­ing a new pur­chase of MSM in cap­sule form). Thank you — your help is much appre­ci­at­ed! 🙂

    Reply
    • Hi Gem­ma! Yes, I still take 2 or 3 cap­sules per day, which is 2,000 or 3,000 mg respec­tive­ly. The pow­der tastes pret­ty awful, but if you mix it with a small glass (4–6 oz.) of juice it should mask the taste pret­ty well. Try start­ing with 1 tsp., since 1 tsp. equals 3,000–4,000 mg. of MSM. Some peo­ple I know of take 1 tsp. in the morn­ing and 1 tsp. at night. It’s up to you. MSM does not exhibit any tox­i­c­i­ty, even at very high lev­els. One study gave rats 2 g per kg of body weight (which is sub­stan­tial­ly more than you would ever take as a sup­ple­ment) and there were no signs of tox­i­c­i­ty (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12387309).

      Apply­ing MSM top­i­cal­ly and tak­ing it inter­nal­ly may give you great results. Keep me updat­ed on your pro­gress!

  7. Steph,

    I start­ed tak­ing Nat­u­ral Calm and began with about 1/2 tsp. dilut­ed in about 3/4–1 cup of water. The sec­ond time I did this I end­ed up with a ter­ri­ble sore throat. I was won­der­ing if you’d expe­ri­enced this or would know why it would hap­pen? Per­haps I didn’t dilute it enough? I’d love to get all the good ben­e­fits but I’m a lit­tle intim­i­dat­ed to take it again. Thanks!

    • Hey R! I have not heard of that reac­tion before. Nor­mal­ly most indi­vid­u­als put 1 or 2 tsp. in 1 cup (8 oz.) of water. I’ve nev­er expe­ri­enced this with mag­ne­sium, but I have expe­ri­enced it with oth­er pow­dered drinks that felt “rough” on my throat. If you try again, make sure you wait til its ful­ly dis­solved and per­haps try it with more water (a full 8–10 oz.).

  8. Hey Steph. :^) I was won­der­ing if you lost any weight dur­ing this cleanse? I’ve been want­i­ng to do a cleanse, but not lose any weight dur­ing it as I’m cur­rent­ly try­ing to gain some. If this one result­ed in weight loss do you know of any oth­ers that wouldn’t? Thank you very much! Hope you’re hav­ing a won­der­ful day. 

    Reply
    • Hey Fer­ny! I did not lose any weight because I kept my calo­ries at rough­ly the same I con­sume (1300–1400). I made my shakes very fill­ing (they were about 450 calo­ries each) plus a hearty lunch. You should be okay if you add some good fats to your smooth­ies and use a qual­i­ty pro­tein pow­der. I added 2 Tbsp. of coconut oil for each smooth­ie. Dur­ing your cleanse, let me know if you need any help adjust­ing your intake so you don’t lose weight. You can even gain some if you need to on this cleanse.

  9. Hey Steph,

    I was look­ing through the Clean book and I noticed that for peo­ple who are doing the cleanse with­out the kit they give a list of recipes that you can use. It seems like they sug­gest mak­ing a shake for break­fast but then hav­ing some kind of soup or juice for din­ner. If you do the cleanse with­out the kit, should you only use a pro­tein pow­der for the break­fast shake? Or is it ok to use it for both break­fast and din­ner? Would that be too much pro­tein if you are already hav­ing pro­tein for lunch like chick­en, or fish? 

    Thanks as always for your won­der­ful insight,
    Scout 

    Reply
    • Hey Scout! If I was doing the cleanse with­out the kit, I would do pro­tein pow­der in my break­fast AND din­ner shake. If you are hav­ing a hearty soup for din­ner, then skip the pro­tein pow­der obvi­ous­ly. 😉 I don’t rec­om­mend a juice for din­ner unless you have been on this cleanse for at least 2 or 3 weeks and you have got­ten used to it – juice is not fill­ing and can cause some unwel­come side effects for some peo­ple (headaches, nau­sea, etc.) who are not used to juices. Make sure you are using a plant-based pro­tein for your shakes. No whey, casein, or egg white pow­der. Stick with Sun War­rior, Vega, or a rice-based Meta­gen­ics for­mu­la. It’s impor­tant to get enough pro­tein while on a cleanse, and you will hit rough­ly 90–100 grams of pro­tein per day if you have two shakes and a lunch with 6 oz. chick­en or fish. If you’re still hun­gry, you can snack on lunch left­overs or fruits and veg­gies.

    I’ve been want­i­ng to do this cleanse for a while now, but sad­ly they don’t deliv­er to the uk yet.. 

    So i have been sav­ing so i can get all the sup­ple­ments and do my own cleanse 🙂 I’m near­ly there!! 

    Do you know what sup­ple­ments they have in the sup­ple­ment sachet , I see 3 tablets on their web­site..? is that the diges­tive enzyme, and liv­er sup­port and pro­bi­otic? or did you take that in addi­tion to what they pro­vid­ed?

    I’m try­ing to find a good pro­tein shake, I use sun war­rior at the moment, which i like, but is there any bet­ter ones you rec­om­mend? I saw you had one on insta­gram a while ago.. 

    Also one more ques­tion 😉 In the cleanse shake sachets i see its has all the vit­a­mins and min­er­als, so tak­ing a good mul­ti vit­a­m­in would work i guess? 

    I am such a per­fec­tion­ist :/ lol 

    Thanks!!!

    • Hey Sarah! Good job, you’re going to love this cleanse. ;D Yes, the sup­ple­ments they have in the satch­et are an enzyme blend and a blend that is sup­posed to aid in bow­el move­ment and keep­ing bad bac­te­ria at bay. The oth­er cap­sule comes in a sep­a­rate bot­tle and it’s a pro­bi­otic. I took their pro­bi­otic, but I did not take the two tablets in the satch­et because I actu­al­ly can’t swal­low tablets haha. I am ter­ri­ble at swal­low­ing pills. So instead I took my own enzyme blend and drank aloe juice and Kyolic gar­lic, which replaced the two tablets. 

      I find Vega to be even bet­ter than Sun War­rior in cer­tain regards. I like Vega Sport, but it doesn’t have the vit­a­mins and min­er­als, so you could try Vega One, which is also pret­ty good. If you take just strict­ly a pro­tein pow­der like SW or Vega Sport, then def­i­nite­ly do a qual­i­ty, whole foods based mul­ti­vi­t­a­m­in for some insur­ance. 😉

      That’s okay — I’m a per­fec­tion­ist as well, which you could prob­a­bly tell already!

  20. I was look­ing through the Clean book and I saw that for indi­vid­u­als who are doing the scrub with­out the unit they give a run­down of for­mu­las that you can uti­lize. It appears like they rec­om­mend mak­ing a shake for break­fast how­ev­er then hav­ing some sort of soup or squeeze for sup­per. On the off chance that you do the wash down with­out the pack, would it be a good idea for you to just uti­lize a pro­tein pow­der for the break­fast shake? On the oth­er hand is it alright to uti­lize it for both break­fast and sup­per? Would that be an exces­sive amount of pro­tein on the off chance that you are as of now hav­ing pro­tein for lunch like chick­en, or fish?

  21. Thanks for shar­ing your sto­ry. I tend to asso­ciate slow­ing down with lazi­ness, and I know I shouldn’t do that. I’m glad I was not the only one expe­ri­enc­ing that.
