Detox Basics Testimony

This testimony was submitted August 10th, via another NSP Associate who works with us concerning Detox Basics.

I’ve attached a small summary of how Detox Basics is improving my life.  If you want you can send it on to Lorene. CD

I began using this product on August 3rd and here is my experience in one week:

  • More energy
  • Joint and muscle pain virtually gone
  • sleeping better
  • clearer mind
  • calmer
  • acid reflux and liver pain gone
  • cravings under control

OTC (Over the counter ) drugs

  • I have been taking 1 to 2 gravol tablets for over 25 years at bedtime to sleep and no longer need that
  • Was taking minimum 2-3 extra strength tylenol daily for back and foot pain, no longer have the pain so don’t need the tylenol
  • Was taking 3 “Recovery” tablets daily to try and ease pain; not needed now
  • stopped taking daily laxative that I needed because of all the OTC drugs I was consuming

I have also stopped drinking alcohol because of this program, as well as diet pop and am limiting my intake of sweets and fatty food. That probably helps too. I don’t take any prescription drugs.

Thanks S.H. for suggesting this great product for me, it may have saved my life!

Ingredients on the Detox Basics 30 day cleanse are discussed in the article: Healthy Microbiome and Detox for Health.

Q & A? Cleanses, Children’s Health & Calcium

Questions & Answers (in italics):

In supporting those who wish to share Nature’s Sunshine Products as a business to help others achieve vital health; I often get questions such as these. As this covered an extensive range of topics, I thought it would be good to post it.

Good morning Lorene, hope all is well. Couple questions for you.


1. What is the difference between all the cleanses?
Looks like Clean Start and Tiao Pack are for the large intestines and the Detox Basic is to support the liver? There are also a couple more (cleanses).
In my experience Tiao He is very much for liver plus all organs. LIV-C in it is definitely liver, LBS & Psyllium for bowels /intestines), Body-DeTox for all organs, Red Clover for cellular/blood cleansing , Black Walnut for parasites and thyroid support. We have had this cleanse for 25 yrs.; it is very effective.

Especially good in spring when liver is often overload from heavier winter food, less activity, etc. This is the closest to the popular Wild Rose Cleanse. My husband & I have tested both and Tiao He was far more effective!

Fact sheets for all are available on line, via TakeTheNaturalPath.mynsp.com. On this site, click “More Info” , then choose your country on the NSP page. Contact Lorene Benoit for assistance in choosing what best suits your needs and for best pricing.

I have not had much experience with Detox Basics, as it is new, but to me it also looks like liver AND bowels because of the NutriBiome Bacillus Coagulans. The BerberinIR (berberis aristata) is an excellent blood sugar/glucose stabilizer.

Clean Start definitely gets the bowels moving – a better visual and bowel cleanser (than Tiao He) with the LBS & fibre mix: aloe, psyllium, chlorophyll & malic acid. It also contains Body Detox, which works on liver & other organs. I would use this one for sure if bowels are not working so well. People SEE the difference!
I know it can seem confusing to have so many, but every person’s needs are different. My suggestion is that you use them at different times and your personal experience will be the best guide for you. This is why we like people to be supported by the person helping them choose their herbs & supplements. 
The other two are cleanses: ParaPak – when people return from international travel; kids with pinworms, annual parasite cleanse. This 10 day cleanse was also used successfully with Candida/yeast before we had Candida Clear, which is a little better for this challenge because of the enzymes to be taken between meals. These really help to break down and clear out the candida organisms.


2. Also was hoping to get kid vitamins but they are with iron. Are there any vit/min for kids with out iron?
NO, but the Elderberry for children makes an excellent daily, if you do not want the iron. It especially is useful to keep strong immune system when they are exposed to lots of illness in school system.
Zambroza, (Thai Go in US) is a delicious beverage that is excellent for children; containing a wide range of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and immune support. 


3. The children probiotics are made in gummy form.  Hard to make a gummy with out adding stuff to it. Do you know what age kids can start taking these adult vit and probiotics?
No, they are not gummies – they are chewable. We had the gummies years ago made with natural fruit, but they were not as popular, so they reverted to our previous formula we have had for years.


4. Do you know what age kids can start taking these adult vits and probiotics?
No exact age has been determined as to when infantile flora changes. I suspect it differs with a child’s constitution, diet, whether they were born vaginally or by C section, breastfed and how long, and other lifestyle factors.  Personally I think once they are 3 yrs. or 40 lbs. and are able to handle capsules or tablets, they could use children’s or adult probiotics. 
Capsules can be emptied into water, chlorophyll or food, if they cannot swallow.
Research certainly shows that probiotics are helpful for colic, diarrhea, skin conditions, food allergies and immunity. 


5. Do you know why Liquid B12 has no b9? Has other b vit though.
B12 has some of the other B’s to avoid imbalance or deficiencies. We also have separate B6, B9, and B5 as some people need more of these. For something with ALL the B’s, then use B complex. Super Vits & Mins. is also a completely balanced daily with all B’s. Same formula used for 40+ years, because it works & herbal base makes it very absorbable, so don’t let small numbers fool you – it’s a better formula than most “mega” vit & min formulas.


6. Also the difference between calcium products.
Personally I think Skeletal Support is excellent because it contains boron. This formula has been available and popular in the US for several years; relatively recently approved in Canada. But I have had many clients who have had terrific results with all NSP Calciums – people seem to get their favourites. I have had people with leg cramps, restless legs, or high pH acidity taking other Cal Mag supplements without results – they take ours and notice a difference usually within a week. Again, it is about the absorption and bio-availability for which NSP has stringent standards.
We also have straight herbal calcium formulas which some people prefer for infants and seniors, and works specifically for use in hot flashes, but that is another topic. They are in capsule form and can be made into tea by opening the capsule. NSP offers many different strokes for different folks!
Thanks for your support. RM

Cleansing, Cancer & Health: The Truth About Cancer – A Global Quest

The Global Quest for Cancer series is available free again for the weekend – a US Thanksgiving gift?

If you have no more than 20 minutes to invest in your health, PLEASE at the very least, listen to the excellent explanations of the importance of cleansing to eliminate disease, restore immune system and promote health. Episode 6 Global Quest – Truth About Cancer.  Minutes 10 – 20 are critical and summarize a few key concepts that are in my book, The Paw Paw Program.

Episode 6 focuses on the importance of cleansing the entire body in this order.

  1. Colon
  2. Kidney
  3. Liver
  4. Lymphatic
  5. Parasite
  6. Heavy Metal, especially if one has had many vaccines and prescriptions

Below we have listed references & education to the best natural products we have experienced over the last 30 years. The professionals in this video mention most of the herbs that are in these products.

  1. Colon              Clean Start, LBS and Psyllium Hulls on daily basis, Why Detoxify?
  2. Kidney            Kidney Activator/K-C Chinese, or KB-C Concentrate
  3. Liver               Tiao He Cleanse US /Tiao He Cleanse CA *
  4. Lymphatic     Cat’s Claw Una de Gato
  5. Parasite          Para Cleanse US/ Para Pak CA *
  6. Heavy Metal  Heavy Metal Detox

In addition, ideas for feasting on real foods, which is covered extensively in the book, is also covered toward the 20 minute mark of this video.

I loved hearing Dr. Rashid Buttar (30-32 mins) say that Ensure, commonly given to very sick patients in hospitals and undernourished seniors in homecare; “Ensure is like pouring gasoline on the fire – it feeds cancer.” Of course it is! As explained in my book, SUGAR FEEDS CANCER, and inflammation and depletes the immune system – and ensure is mostly sugar, dairy and grains, which most North Americans do not digest, plus chemicals.

At 1 hr. there is a good summary of so many natural treatment options for cancer, most of which are included in my book and in my health programs: mushrooms (reishi, maitake, shitake), coryceps, resveratrol, curcumin & black pepper, ECG’s, Beta Glucans, to list a few.

The full series is available here; if you have cancer, and have not heard episode 1, please do!

Q&A: Hepatitis C


What would you suggest a person take for Hep C?  My husband  was diagnosed 6 years ago.  We’ve done well with our program, however the Doc still wants him to do the Interferon to kill the Hep C Virus. He did 2 Tiao He cleanses in December, then a Candida cleanse, then a Bod E Cleanse.  His blood work that just came back was the best ever! Took a month to build, then another Tiao He, and now another Bod E Klenz. When he’s not cleansing he takes Concentrated Milk Thistle Extract, Maca, Greenzone, Omega Oils, Probiotics, Mineral Chi, Liquid Chlorophyl and various other things as needed. Just wondering what might kill the Hep C Virus??  submitted by DS, BC.
HRP-C and/or LYM-X  and ???


I think your husband is doing an excellent program! It is a general rule of thumb that any cleansing should be balanced by double of building, toning. So doing a 10-15 day Tiao He Cleanse,(US),  followed by a builder such as Milk Thistle Time Release Concentrate  (US & CA) for double the length of time is smart.
Dieter’s Cleanse (US) is safe to take longer term as it already has the 2:1 ration of build and cleanse built into the 30 day package. It is NOT just for dieting, as it is an excellent whole body cleanse and build program. If one needs to lose weight you will; if you don’t carry excess weight, you just lose toxins.

For Canadians contact the author to order the above two US cleanses, or for an excellent whole body cleanse which can be tailored to suit you.

Two other packaged cleanses available in both US and Canada (and many other countries) are Candida Clear (US & CA) and Para Pak (CA)/ Para Cleanse (US).
HRP-C  (called VS-C in US) is an excellent Chinese combination that can be taken to strengthen and balance the immune system, while helping the liver to detoxify. It was created by a Chinese medical doctor specifically for viruses, so is an excellent choice for ongoing maintenance of hepatitis, shingles, herpes, AIDS and Mononucleosis to name a few.

 I would think very carefully before undergoing interferon treatment, as the toxic side effects can be devastating. Remember what is supposed to be the medical maxim: DO NO HARM. I would add to this, “why fix it if it isn’t broken?” Sometimes doctors feel a need to prescribe treatment, even when someone is well, as they are not trained to understand how people can heal themselves naturally.
Lastly, I would make sure that in addition to using this excellent herbal program, you are both following the extensive dietary and lifestyle recommendations given in Lorene’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

The easy to read explanations help people understand how to eat better, why it is critical to eliminate sugar, pH balance, stress and emotions, and exercise. All the four pillars of health are covered  that are so critical to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions and diseases.
Keep up the progress and keep us posted. It is always encouraging to see people taking positive steps for their better health and life!

Q & A : Porphyria cutanea tarda

I have been diagnosed with Porphyria cutanea tarda. My father and brother had the same thing. I went to hospital today and had 3 ltrs of blood removed from my body. This procedure will take place every 2 weeks.  My body lacks the ability to rid itself of iron.  When sores appeared they got infected with staph, which thanks to your and Helga’s help I cleared up with Oregon Grape.  So I was misdiagnosed from beginning. They feel that menopause  along with me using tanning booth all summer awakened this condition. I had 10 times normal iron levels in my blood.
I have never been to tanning salon before and must say I will NEVER again. thankfully my liver was only mildly inflamed.
Can you recommend a good liver cleanse?

No words can thank you for all your help.



An excellent liver cleanse is the Tiao He Pak – Tiao He, means Balance and Harmony in Chinese. This  is a whole body cleanse that also addresses bowels, lymphatic and kidneys – all systems that need to be eliminating to help the liver function better.

As your condition is excess iron, you may want to consider the Heavy Metal Detox formula for 2-3 months after. As you are probably getting iron levels monitored regularly,  you will be able to see empirical improvement, and even more important feel improvement.  In addition to, or after this,  Milk Thistle Standardized Extract– 1 or 2 per day will be a good liver support overall.

The Oregon Grape that was so successful for your staph infection is also an excellent aid for liver, skin and digestion. It is a good one to keep on hand, should any skin condition flare up in future.

Other helpful information concerning your liver can be found on our previous blog:

Genral healthful tips, including diet, exercise, pH balancing, some recipes can all be found in my book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally

Your condition is chemically complex, as all minerals have interactions and protagonist actions with each other, and rather than picking apart what is and is not functioning in the liver, anlayzing what pathways and chemical reactions are or are not working, the natural approach is to nourish and support the liver. IT knows what to do, and given the proper support, it will do it. The fact that this is genetically inherited should not dissuade you from healing it, as biogenomics science is showing that environment is much more powerful than genetics. This means YOU have the ability to change your past and your future!

Nature’s Sunshine has many liver aids, so please keep in touch so we can help you find the best ones for you.
