The Clearstart® ProgramIf you've never embarked on an herbal clearing program before, you may not know what to expect. Clearing your system of toxins and debris can be difficult on your system and, while no two bodies react the same way, there are some fairly typical responses. We've found that once you know what to expect, most people take their body's natural response to clearing in stride.
Note: If you've never taken a fibre supplement before, we recommend you begin slowly. Fibre can be powerful stuff, and as such, it may take your body a while to adjust to the changes. Because your health is important we recommend you begin with 1/4 of the recommended amount of LiFiber, gradually increasing your intake over the first week until you are up to the full amount.
ConstipationIf you experience constipation or irregularity while on Clearstart®, the difficulty can usually be traced to inadequate water consumption. LiFiber, which you have just introduced to your diet, contains both soluble and insoluble fibre. Both kinds of fibre absorb large amounts of water. (Prove it to yourself by putting a small amount of LiFiber in a glass. Just cover the LiFiber with water. After ten minutes you'll know what we mean.) The swollen fibre moves through your digestive tract, sweeping debris along with it. Insoluble fibre will continue to absorb liquid until it reaches the saturation point. After that, the excess water acts like a lubricant to help move the fibre (and everything else) along. If you are not eliminating regularly, it is likely that you are missing enough water to act as a "lubricant".
CrampingOne source of cramps is just the natural action of your colon. Your body moves matter through your digestive tract with a series of muscle contractions called peristalsis. Excess bulk in the colon, inadequate liquid intake and muscle stimulation may all cause cramping during peristalsis. Usually, you will experience relief once you've passed what your colon has been trying to push along. Increasing your water intake may help prevent cramping by softening your stool so that it moves along more easily. Another source of cramping may be your body's reaction to senna, one of the herbs in Nature's Tea (Classic Natural Tea* does not contain senna). Senna is a strong cathartic which stimulates the muscles in your colon. Try cutting back on your tea (simply decrease the amount of time you steep the bag). You can gradually increase the strength of the tea as your body adjusts to the herb.
Diarrhea/gas/bloatingWhen you begin taking a new herb, you are in fact altering your diet. Altering your diet forces a change in the natural flora in your gastrointestinal tract which may result in gas, bloating or diarrhea. (Ever experienced gas, bloating or diarrhea after eating something out of the ordinary? That's evidence of your body's attempt to accommodate digesting new food.) Any time you change your diet, your body responds. After a brief introductory period, during which your body adjusts to new food, symptoms should disappear.
ToxinsWhen you clear your body, toxins are released through different channels, one of which may cause blemishes. The way these toxins are released will vary from person to person. After your body adjusts to the Clearstart® programme, the blemishes will disappear. Likewise, the consistency and quantity of your stool may also change as your body disposes of toxins or you may feel nauseous for the same reason. As with all symptoms, they will disappear as your body rids itself of the problem.

Complementary FoodYou can increase the effectiveness of a clearing program by choosing your food wisely while on it. We've provided the following list to assist you in choosing complementary foods wherever possible. The lists are not all-inclusive and are to be used only as a general guideline.
Following your Clearstart ProgramThe Clearstart Program is simple to follow. Each day, you take the same four basic components. The biggest variation is the number of Paraway capsules you take (you may also choose to slowly increase the amount of LiFiber you take and the strength of your tea over the first few days).
Whether this is the first time you've ever taken herbs, or whether you've been using herbs for years, we recommend you begin slowly with the Paraway, increasing the number of capsules you take after Day 10. We've included a handy pull-out calendar so you can keep track of where you are on the program, as well as to ensure you take enough of each of the components daily.
Take 2 raway capsules daily between days 1-10
and increase the amount to 5 capsules daily between days 11-30.
Take LiFiber as directed on the canister.
For optimal results take Lifiber roughly 1/2 hour after the Paraway.
Drink 1 cup of tea, preferably after your evening meal, before going to bed.
During the day, drink at least 8 -10 250 ml glasses of filtered water.
If you find yourself unable to stick to the suggested time, don't give up! The most important thing is to stay on the program, even if that means adjusting the amounts to suit your own needs. You deserve optimal health; clearing is the most important step in achieving that goal.
