Cleansing is about two things
One is minimizing your exposure to toxins in the first place!
And the other is detox by herbs, supplements, hydrotherapy, fasting or other natural means to improve the function of eliminative organs.
Since cleansing is the process of getting rid of what is no longer useful, doing a cleanse simply involves supporting the body’s natural detoxification systems to eliminate metabolic waste and environmental toxins more efficiently.
Generally, this means using herbs that have been found historically or scientifically to improve liver and kidney function, bind toxins, increase lymphatic flow, open the sweat glands and encourage elimination from the bowels. It may also involve destroying harmful organisms (yeast, bacteria or parasites);
Natural healers have long stressed the importance of maintaining good elimination for better health. After all, it makes sense that the body will be healthier if waste and toxins are eliminated quickly. In fact, just about any system or machine needs some kind of regular cleaning to run properly.
Depending on your specific needs, herbal and nutritional formulas that help destroy yeast, parasites or bacteria may also be used as part of a cleanse. Formulas are available to assist the body in ridding itself of more specific toxins such as heavy metals.
Nature’s Sunshine has several prepackaged cleansing programs available. These programs meet a wide variety of needs. Below are some of the options to choose from.

Dieter’s Cleanse is a cleanse that was designed to use at the start of a weight loss program. However, it can also be used as a general cleansing program even if you are not trying to lose weight. It not only contains herbs that may clean out the colon and liver, it also contains supplements to balance glandular function and metabolism.
Dieter’s Cleanse is an essential first step in any weight management plan, for use between programs, or for use by any adult desiring periodic cleansing. Years of improper diet, refined foods, low-fiber foods, and fast foods can cause a build-up of toxic material (anything that is foreign to the body). A common occurrence in the intestines, this build-up can limit the body’s ability to fully absorb vital nutrients needed for optimal health through the intestinal walls. Learn More
