ABHA Daily Cleanse
Proprietary Formula ~ Energy from the Inside Out!
Alder Brooke Healing Arts "Daily Cleanse" is not only a formula to assist our body in naturally eliminating waste, it also has rebuilding qualities, helping to create intestinal integrity while reducing inflammation.
The digestive tract contains 70-80% of our immune system. The lining of the digestive tract is a part of that. The impressive lining of the digestive tract includes the epithelial lining which is continuous from the mouth to the anus. This lining needs to remain moist; it must also be very thin to accomplish both digestion and absorption. The epithelial cells are constantly being eliminated and then re-growing. This lining is a protective barrier allowing nutrients to absorb into the blood stream while keeping fiber and undigested food particles contained within the digestive tract to be moved from one section to the next and eventually evacuated. The lining protects the digestive tract walls or the deeper tissues against chemical stresses that have corrosive effects from things like digestive acids, pathogenic bacteria, and enzymes. Mechanical stresses such as abrasion can effect this lining as well. The lining of mucus also has probiotics and amino acids. Unfortunately, it can also collect bacteria and undigested food particles. This compromises the integrity of the mucus lining. My "Daily Cleanse" formula assists in ensuring integrity of this important intestinal lining.

Daily Cleanse Ingredients
Golden Flax Meal
Flaxseeds, sometimes called linseeds, are small, brown, tan or golden-colored seeds. People have been consuming flax for over 6,000 years. Flaxseeds are considered a "super food" as consumption can help enhance digestion, improve skin quality, lower cholesterol, reduce cravings of sugar, help balance hormones, promote weight loss, and even help to fight cancer. These are just a few of the awesome benefits of flax consumption.
Flaxseed Nutrition Facts
When you look at the nutritional benefits of flaxseeds, there are many things that will catch your attention.
Just 1 ounce (3 tablespoons) serving of flaxseeds contains:
- Omega-3 (ALA) 6,338mg
- Fiber 8g
- Protein 6g
- Vitamin B1 31% RDA
- Manganese 35% RDA
- Magnesium 30% RDA
- Phosphorus 19% RDA
- Selenium 10% RDA
- Also, flaxseeds contain a good amount of vitamin B6, Iron, potassium, copper and zinc.
This flaxseed nutrition profile makes it easy to see why it's one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.
High In Fiber, But Low In Carbs ~ One of the most extraordinary benefits of flaxseeds is that they contain high levels of mucilage gum content. Mucilage is a gel-forming fiber that is water-soluble and has incredible benefits on the intestinal tract. Also, flax is extremely high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can assist the colon detoxification process, improve fat loss, and reduce sugar cravings.
It is said that humans should aim to consume 30-40 grams of high fiber foods daily. Flax meal is a great addition to the fiber in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods.
Healthy Skin And Hair ~ If you want healthier skin, hair and nails, which I know you do since you are reading this, then consider adding 1-2 tablespoons of "Daily Cleanse" to your daily smoothie or just mix it with water and drink it.
The Alfa-linolenic acid (ALA) fats in flaxseeds benefits the skin and hair by providing essential fats and B-vitamins, which can help reduce dryness and flakiness. It can also improve symptoms of acne, rosacea, and eczema. Give me a double dose! This also applies to eye health as flax can reduce dry eye syndrome.
Weight Loss ~ The Journal of Nutrition published a study concluding that consumption of flaxseeds might reduce obesity and support weight loss. Read it here jn.nutition.org/content/140/11/1937.full or just take my word for it.
Since flax is full of healthy fats and fiber, it may help you feel fuller and more satisfied longer so you will eat fewer calories overall which may lead to weight loss. ALA fats may also help reduce inflammation.
This is important for weight loss because an inflamed body will tend to hold on to excess weight. Adding "Daily Cleanse" to your soups, salads, or smoothies just might contribute to assisting your body in maintaining optimal weight! Love it!!
Lower Cholesterol ~ The soluble fiber content of flaxseeds can trap fat and cholesterol in the digestive system minimizing its absorption. Soluble fiber also traps bile made from cholesterol then excretes it through the digestive system, forcing the body to make more, using up excess cholesterol in the blood and lowering cholesterol overall. I bet this sounds awesome to a lot of my clients who have struggled to reduce their cholesterol. Check out this finding from the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism to learn more. nutritionandmetabolism.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1743-7075-9-8
Flaxseeds Are Gluten-Free ~ Substituting flax is a great way to naturally replace gluten-containing grains. Since flax is anti-inflammatory, you will gain those benefits as well. Flax may also be a good alternative to omega-3 fats in fish for people with a seafood allergy or for those concerned with the radiation and mercury levels in the ocean.
Another great aspect of flax being gluten-free is that it can be used as a grain-free option in meals. I have used it along with almond flour in baking, or as an alternative to eggs.
Flaxseeds Have Antioxidant Qualities ~ Flaxseeds contain lignans, which are unique fiber-related polyphenols that provide us with antioxidant benefits. And when I hear antioxidants, I think anti-aging. Since I want to look and feel forever young, I'm all about the flax! And flax helps balance hormones and create cellular health. Polyphenols also support the growth of probiotics in the gut, which may help eliminate yeast and candida. Lignans are also known for their anti-viral and antibacterial properties!
Digestive Health ~ This is the biggest reason I made flax meal the number one ingredient in "Daily Cleanse." It promotes digestive health! The ALA in flax can help protect the lining of the digestive tract and maintain gastrointestinal (GI) health. It has been shown to be beneficial for people suffering from gut inflammation. Which is most of us, so you can see why I say consume it daily.
Two tablespoons of flaxseeds contains about 5 grams of fiber or one-quarter of the RDA (recommended daily allowance). The fiber found in flaxseeds provides food for friendly bacteria in your colon that can help cleanse waste from your system. And, from what I understand, flax is one of the best food sources for high amounts of magnesium in the world.
You can also take 1-3 tablespoons of flaxseed oil with 8 ounces of carrot juice to help naturally relieve constipation. So, constipation sufferers, if you don't want the fiber benefits but still want relief, head over to Red Barn and get yourself a fresh pressed carrot juice and ask them to add some Udo's choice or your favorite flax oil.
Flaxseeds Have Anti-Cancer Benefits ~ I know cancer is an extremely sensitive and controversial subject, so please just consider that flaxseed benefits have been documented repeatedly.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Cancer Research discovered that consuming flaxseeds may decrease the risk of breast cancer. The three lignans found in flaxseeds can be converted by intestinal bacteria into enterolactone and enterodiol which naturally balance hormones which may be the reason flaxseeds reduce the risk of breast cancer. Read that study here. clincancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/11/10/3828.short
Another study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that the lignans in flaxseeds might also reduce the risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer. Check it out here: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12771342?dopt=Abstract
High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids ~ Have you been hearing about the health benefits of fish oil or omega-3 fats? Well, it's time to tune in. Fish oil contains EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), two omega-3 fats that are crucial for optimal health. Although flaxseeds do not contain EPA or DHA, they do contain ALA, another type of omega-3 fat, which is considered essential. Essential fatty acids (EFA's) are the acids that our bodies do not produce, therefore it is vital that we get them from a dietary source. ALA is considered a healthy fat and should be included in a balanced diet.
Menopausal Symptoms ~ I am personally stoked on the lignans in the flax due to the benefits in hormone balancing. Flax might be considered as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy because lignans do have estrogenic properties. These properties may also help reduce the risk of osteoporosis. It can even help menstruating women by helping maintain cycle regularity.
Most of us think of turmeric as a fabulous curry spice, in India it has been crowned the "Queen of all spices," but it is quite possibly one of the most valuable disease fighting herbs on this amazing planet. It has innumerable healing properties and has thousands of peer-reviewed published articles proving the renowned healing benefits relating to the main compound; curcumin. So, it's near the top of the list of ingredients in my "Daily Cleanse."
A teaspoon of turmeric a day is known to keep the inflammation, toxins, pain, and cancer away. The most active compound in turmeric is curcumin, which alone is poorly absorbed in our body, but adding a pinch of black pepper makes it easily absorbed and used in the body. Thus black pepper is included in my "Daily Cleanse."
Long known health benefits of turmeric include anti-inflammation, antibacterial, and aiding the body in detoxification. Recent studies reveal how this natural gift can aid in the creation of health and reversal of disease.
To explore this further, consider turmeric has natural anti-inflammation properties from its curcumin compound. Several studies show that the anti-inflammatory qualities in turmeric are comparably better than those of aspirin and ibuprofen. Many diseases, including what I suffered from, ulcerative colitis, and others like what my Mum has suffered from, arthritis, and those that many suffer from like chronic pain, high cholesterol, and more are the result of inflammation. Turmeric's key to disease reversal may be its ability to reduce inflammation. Chronic inflammation is believed to be the culprit of many of our modern day diseases. So I consider turmeric to be a powerful super food addition to my daily consumption.
*Digestive related issues are one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor today. Eating turmeric not only reduces inflammation in the digestive tract, it stimulates the gallbladder, which then sends bile to the digestive tract aiding in digestion of fats. Turmeric consumption is also helpful in reducing bloating and gas. Hallelujah!
*We all know of the risks associated with chemotherapy, so consider the ability of curcumin to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing without the harmful side effects. Researchers have reported that curcumin blocked the formation of cancer causing enyzmes in rodents. Recently, curcumin has received attention due to its ability to reduce tumor size and kill cancer cells.
Bottom line, again, it's worth a try to consume turmeric as it works well to support cancer treatments and is considered one of the most potent preventions of cancer growth as it inhibits the development and spread of this dreadful disease. See my links below to learn more about its history and use with cancer prevention and treatment.
*When my clients are on pharmaceutical anticoagulants, they are told to minimize their intake of fresh greens and other natural blood thinners like turmeric root because together they may thin the blood too much. It seems to me that if greens and power roots like turmeric can have such an effective anticoagulant and blood thinning qualities then why not try them before resorting to drugs. Of course, if you have an issue that requires medical attention then by all means follow your doctor's recommendations, however, if you are like me and on the continual search for optimal health, then add some turmeric into your daily intake and reap the blood benefits. I have no need for aspirin or ibuprofen or other drugs that may accomplish anticoagulation and I can either attribute it to my Goddess given great health or my food as medicine choices. For me, it's a little of both. Plus curcumin has shown to reduce LDL (the bad cholesterol), prevent blood clotting, and remove plaque build up in the arteries. Again, see the resources listed below to learn more about heart protection and blood health with turmeric.
*Pain killing drugs come with many side effects. Most common to me as I practiced colon hydrotherapy professionally since 2000 was the dreaded constipation.
Although painkillers are widely accepted, the ability to manage pain through the curcumin in turmeric has been scientifically studied with notable results and without the paralyzing bowel effects.
*Have you heard of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF)? It's a type of growth hormone related to brain function. Lack of this hormone is linked to cognitive disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease. And guess what? You got it- curcumin positively influences the levels of BDNF! Therefore, adding turmeric into your daily diet may be a way to delay or even reverse brain diseases or brain function decline!
In addition, turmeric studies on animals have shown to be effective in correcting symptoms associated with depression. Few studies have been done on humans, but as a mom who has suffered from depression, I say it's worth a try.
Last but definitely not least, let's talk about how turmeric consumption can delay aging and increase longevity. Specifically, free radicals and inflammation are believed to be big contributors to aging prematurely. Given that turmeric's curcumin helps protect the heart and prevent and fight cancer, the two most common causes of death today, you can see it's an obvious contributor to longevity.
Diatomaceous earth is said to have many health benefits. But what is diatomaceous earth?
Diatomaceous earth is a naturally-formed sedimentary mineral rock. It's derived from the remains of diatoms, or oceanic unicellular algae. Diatoms are over 30 million years old and are formed from the cementation of microscopic algae-like plant remains into the earth's surface. These clay-like, chalky remains are usually found in the form of a thick, white, siliceous powder known as diatomaceous earth. Often used to support body cleansing, some research also suggests it's a natural tool for promoting normal blood lipids, detoxing toxic metals, and fighting harmful intestinal organisms.
The use of diatomaceous earth knows no bounds, and has many applications in cosmetic, agricultural, and cleansing realms. It's been extensively investigated and some interesting health benefits have been discovered.
Diatomaceous earth is a natural source of silica. Food-grade diatomaceous earth is composed of approximately 85% silica. This important trace mineral is required by tendons, cartilage, blood vessels, and bones. The nutrient even contributes to almost every vital organ, including the heart, liver, and lungs. Food was the primary source of naturally-occurring silica before modern farming practices depleted the soil. It is suggested that only one-third of the silica we need is available in natural, plant-based foods now.
Diatomaceous earth is also known to promote skin, hair, teeth, and nail health and is touted as a potent beauty mineral. I'll take a double dose of this precious powder.
In addition, this magic mineral is known to support heart health as it may have positive benefits for cholesterol levels, encouraging a healthy heart. Nutrients such as silicon, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, and other trace minerals are available in diatomaceous earth, giving rise to a practically endless supply of health benefits. Most of these nutrients play a role in building and repairing of muscles and bones.
I have used diatomaceous earth as an internal cleanser. It acts as a mild abrasive supporting regular bowel movements and aiding in removing toxic metals and accumulated wastes.
Slippery Elm Bark Powder
Slippery Elm has been known as one of the most versatile trees on the planet. Historically, it has been used medically as a digestive aid, laxative, aid in childbirth, poultice to treat wounds, tea to relieve cold and flu symptoms, and to treat swollen glands and sore throats, as well as an eyewash to treat sore eyes. Then it has its many textile uses including the bark-supplied material for the sides of winter houses and roofs. By boiling the bark the inner bark was then made into fiber bags, large storage baskets, ropes and cords. Pretty awesome how the bark from a tree can be both medicinal and useful in making things! I love nature!!
Currently, there is little scientific research regarding Slippery Elm and its uses, but it is widely used and recommended to people with various conditions.
The active ingredient in Slippery Elm is a substance called mucilage, which is a polysaccharide that becomes a gel when mixed with water. The mucilage comes from the inner bark of the tree and is a bit slippery and slimy, hence the name "Slippery Elm." The mucilage does a good job of soothing and coating our insides from the mouth all the way to the colon. I added Slippery Elm to my "Daily Cleanse" formula for this mucilage quality.
I first discovered this magic tree bark when it was offered in the form of a lozenge to sooth sore throats naturally. As a mom wanting an alternative to pharmaceuticals, I offered the lozenges to my kids and found them to be helpful. Later, I discovered the slime effect could help with the digestive tract as well. Since I had suffered from ulcerative colitis and other intestinal inflammatory issues it made perfect sense to use this plant as a way to sooth my digestive tract. I find that it can create relief from heartburn or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, diverticulitis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Many experts think it creates healthy mucus lining in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract protecting us from gastric ulcers to colon ulcers. Slippery Elm is rich in nutrients including antioxidants so it can help reduce inflammation.
Using the Daily Cleanse
My "Daily Cleanse" is more than just a way to assist your body in naturally eliminating waste; it is also a way to create intestinal integrity.
This product is easy to consume. I personally just mix it with water, shake it up, and drink it. Some of my friends have reported that they like it mixed with apple juice. It's also great added in smoothies, sprinkled over a salad, or added to soups. Because it gets thick when mixed with liquids, I find that it is best to consume fairly quickly after mixing it.
