ABHA Seasonal Cleanse
Proprietary Formula ~ Energy from the Inside Out!
As the seasons change our food choices and lifestyles change too. It's a great time to do a cleanse. As we let go of what is no longer serving us, we prepare and make room for vitality of the new season. I recently formulated a simple seasonal cleanse perfect for this occasion. I call it "Seasonal Cleanse".

Seasonal Cleanse Ingredients
Bentonite clay acts as an absorptive medium that bonds with old waste. Maybe you have heard of the dreaded "mucoid plaque". That's the ugly looking mucus that didn't get released in our normal bowel movements. This mucus can become hard, dry and sticky. I have heard it be compared to the rubber of a car tire. I have seen it personally and although when I view it, it is bonded to the clay and fiber that help to draw it off the walls of the intestines, so naturally, some of what I see is the clay and fiber itself. The difference between the mucoid plaque and the clay and fiber initially ingested, is that the mucoid plaque has a fowl odor, it holds the shape of the intestines and often has bacterial and rotted old food that doesn't look like fresh food anymore.
In a healthy intestinal tract we have a mucus barrier that allows nutrients to absorb into the blood stream while preventing undigested food particles or large chain amino acids from absorbing. This mucus lining is comprised of probiotics and amino acids like L-Glutamine. It is supposed to be washed clean every few day with normal elimination from a healthy diet rich in water and both soluble and insoluble fibers. Unfortunately, with a diet low in those fibers, water and sustenance, and a diet high in refined foods, sugars and gluten this mucus barrier collects to form what some people call "mucoid plaque". Sounds kind of gross, right!? Well, it is gross. It can actually collect the bacterial decomposition of old food and turn into waste that ferments or putrefies. It can actually become a breeding ground for opportunistic organisms and unwanted not so healthy bacteria which can contribute to ill health in the body. The bentonite clay helps to draw this old collected matter off the walls of the intestines so that it can be evacuated from the body.
Ideally, the bacteria in our guts are helpful or symbiotic. These are known as "probiotics" or "friendly flora". These probiotics are considered a vital part of the immune system that is found within our intestines. I understand that 70-80% of our immune system actually is within our intestinal tract. Dr. Norman Walker describes in his book "Colon Health, A Key to A Vibrant Life" that the appendix produces and stores these probiotics. He explains that the appendix is actually an important organ for that reason. Although modern physicians argue that the appendix is disposable and has no known function, Dr. Norman Walker believed it is precisely located just below the ileocecal valve to neutralize or inoculate any potential harmful bacteria that may be entering the large intestine from the small intestine via that valve. Dr. Walker explains its function as vital in maintaining harmony within that bacterial balance. When we lose that balance and opportunistic organisms or potentially harmful bacteria are allowed to overgrow, it is known as "disbiosis"; an imbalance in the bacterial balance or eco-system of our intestines.
This may be new information to some of you and to others this information is a reminder of why it's not a good idea to remove organs even when modern doctors say there is no use for them. This information may also help you to understand why many people believe that taking antibiotics should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.
Psyllium Seed Husk
Psyllium seed husk as a fiber supplement is another highly absorptive medium that can actually absorb much its weight in liquid. Because of it's liquid absorption it is crucial to consume extra liquid when supplementing with psyllium. Psyllium is a common ingredient is fiber formulas to aid in regular elimination. You may see it in formulas designed to help with constipation. It is actually very helpful for that purpose as long as plenty of water or other liquid is consumed with it. With out adequate liquid with psyllium, consumption of this fiber can have the reverse effect and contribute to constipation or blocked bowels. So, for that reason, I urge any consumers of psyllium to drink extra liquid or skip psyllium altogether.
Psyllium can also be considered a fiber that is harsh or abrasive. For that reason, experts may suggest to avoid it if you have a sensitive system or if you are prone to intestinal inflammation. I personally like psyllium in just the right ratio with water and the other ingredients of my "Seasonal Cleanse." But because of the strength of psyllium, I do not add it to my "Daily Cleanse" product, only my "Seasonal Cleanse" product.
We have finger and hair-like projections lining the walls of our small intestine known as villi and micro villi. These projections as well as the placae circulars make up the extra large surface area for absorption in the small intestine. It is said that if we were to take and stretch out the small intestine it would be between 20-23 feet long and the inside walls could stretch to take up surface area comparable to that of a tennis court. That is why most absorption occurs in the small intestine, because it has so much surface area to absorb. Kind of cool if you ask me! But, of course we need to be free of excessive mucus or other obstructions in order to absorb nutrients there. Dr. Norman Walker explains that God perfected our anatomy so digestion and absorption would be easy as long as we are consuming foods in their natural state. Sadly, our Standard American Diet (SAD), has us consuming processed foods that don't resemble their natural state. Before I became aware of natural eating and living, I ate a SAD diet with an extra sad addition to this diet. I ate dried sugar cereals, macaroni and cheese from a box, candy, popsicles, sodas from a can, pots of coffee, alcohol with added dyes and sugars, I ate white bread that was highly refined and I barely ever ate fruits and vegetables other than the occasional frozen peas and carrots in my factory farmed egg scrambles. I also consumed hot dogs, brownies, nut butters mixed with ingredients that I have never heard of and packaged foods as my regular diet. It is no wonder to me now why I developed an auto immune disease in my intestinal tract that was diagnosed and treated medically at age 19.
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.
First of all, 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 1/3 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 hearth health as it may have positive benefits for cholesterol levels, encouraging heart health. 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.
Ginger root has always been one of my favorite foods. I love the taste and its health benefits are too vast to list. Just to name a few of the qualities ginger root provides...
Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory herb and there has been much recent interest in its use for joint problems. It has also been indicated for treating arthritis, fevers, headaches, toothaches, coughs, bronchitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, to ease tendonitis, lower cholesterol and blood-pressure and aid in preventing internal blood clots.
Ginger root is a culinary and medicinal herb used primarily for the treatment of discomfort after eating, this includes the symptoms of bloating, heartburn, flatulence, and nausea. It is also considered helpful as a preventative for motion sickness and as a digestive. Due to its antispasmodic characteristic some people have used it to help ease menstrual cramps. In some traditional systems it is credited with the ability to treat arthritis, fevers, headaches, and toothaches.
Ginger may also be taken orally as an herbal remedy to prevent or relieve nausea resulting from chemotherapy, motion sickness, pregnancy, and surgery.
Guidelines for Using the Seasonal Cleanse
I like to take 2 teaspoons with 12 ounces of water, shake well and drink up. It does get solid in the jar if I don't consume it fairly quickly. If you set it down and forget to drink it quick you will see that it becomes thick and not easy to drink. So I say, shake it shake it shake it and bottoms up. I always follow each drink with an additional 12 to 16 ounces of liquid. Preferably water, as the seasonal cleansing ingredients bond with whatever I consume or had recently consumed. So, for that reason I don't eat or drink anything other than water 2 hours before or after I drink the Seasonal Cleanse.
I like to take a dose of my Seasonal Cleanse 1 time each day for 30 days as a gentle and gradual cleanse.
Other times I like to consume a dose 3 times a day for 10 days to cleanse a little quicker and see more immediate results.
Occasionally I will take a dose up to 5 times a day for 7 days for really quick results. When I take it 5 times a day there is not much time in between doses to eat solid food so in these cases I may skip solid food altogether for that week and just consume fresh pressed vegetable juices.
Whenever I consume my Seasonal Cleanse I feel a bit lighter. I feel my digestive tract is rejuvenated and my bowel movements are more efficient.
