Herbal Information:

Senna Seed:
  • Traditionally people in northern Africa and southwestern Asia have used senna as a laxative for centuries. It was considered a "cleansing" herb because of its cathartic (purging - cleansing) effect.
  • Senna is an FDA-approved over-the-counter (OTC) laxative. A prescription is not required to purchase senna. It is used to treat constipation and also to clear the bowel before diagnostic tests such as colonoscopy.
  • Senna contains many chemicals called sennosides. Sennosides affect the lining of the bowel, which causes a laxative effect.
  • In a report titled; Is Senna Laxative Use Associated to Cathartic Colon, Genotoxicity, or Carcinogenicity?  Published online 2009 Sep 10. doi: 10.1155/2009/287247 in The Journal of Toxicology it states: 'Due to their natural origin, apparent low oral toxicity, effectiveness, and accessibility without a medical prescription, the [sennoside] laxatives are a popular remedy for constipation.'

Cascara Sagrada:
  • The literal Spanish translation of Cascara Segrada is Sacred Bark.
  • This is the name given to the plant by the Spanish Priests.
  • There are two possible reasons for the name.
  • One is that the bark was dried and used as a laxative or purgative by the priests.
  • The other is that the wood closely resembles the wood used to build the ark of the covenant.
  • Cascara Sagrada has active componants called anthraquinones. These are thought to be the reason that Cascara is an effective laxative. They stimulate the peristoltic muscles and thereby assist in the elimination of fecal matter from the colon.
  • Constipation relief is cascara sagrada’s best known possible benefit. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • A 2002 study published in Life Sciences researched the effects of aloe-emodin, a component of cascara, on two human liver cancer cell lines, Hep G2 and Hep 3B. The researchers found that aloe-emodin inhibited cancer cell proliferation and induced apoptosis (programmed cell death) in both cell lines, concluding that aloe-emodin “may be useful in liver cancer prevention.” (Study Link)

Aloe Vera:
  • Aloe vera has been known for its healing properties for at least 6,000 years. In the early days, the plant was known for being a “plant of immortality” and was presented to Egyptian pharaohs as a funeral gift.
  • Over time, groups from many geographical areas have used aloe vera, including Indians, Chinese, Mexicans, and North Americans.
  • There are two medicinally useful parts of the aloe vera plant.
  • First, the leaves are filled with a clear gel. This gel is extracted from the plant and usually used on the skin to treat burns and various skin conditions. The gel can also be found in liquid or capsule form and taken orally.
  • The second substance the plant produces is called aloe latex. This is the yellow pulp that’s found just under the outer part of the plant leaf. Aloe latex has been shown to have laxative properties, and it’s usually taken orally to treat constipation.
  • Aloe latex contains aloin, which is an anthraquinone that gives aloe vera its laxative properties and may help treat constipation. (NIH Report Link)
  • The healing properties and the laxative properties of Aloe Vera are both vital in the process of a healthy colon cleanse.

Dandelion Root:

  • Hypolipidemic and Antioxidant Effects of Dandelion (Is a study that asks what effects Dandelion has on fatty acids {cholesterol})
    • "Recent reports have indicated that excessive oxidative stress contributes to the development of atherosclerosis-linked metabolic syndrome." (Environmental toxins contribute to atherosclerosis {hardening of the arteries}.
    • "These results suggest that... Dandelion is beneficial in preventing hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis (hardining of the arteries from too much cholesterol) and reducing risk factors for coronary artery disease."
  • The liver produces cholesterol and sometimes is overburdened with other filtering/ cleansing tasks. Cholesterol buildup may be a result of a liver that isn't functioning properly.
  • Dandelion appears to help improve liver function.
  • Traditionally dandelion has been used as a diuretic for centuries.
  • One of the liver functions is to eliminate convert amonia to uric acid and expell it as urine.
    • A diuretic like dandelion aids in that process.
  • It has been used for centuries to treat jaundice, the yellowing of the skin that occurs as a result of a seriously malfunctioning liver.
  • Dandelion is a storehouse of nutrition.
    • It is a natural source of sodium, calcium and potassium.
    • It also contains iron, phosphorus, nickel, copper, and zinc. 
    • Dandelions have 7,000 units of vitamin A per ounce, besides a lot of the vitamins B, C, E and some G. All of these are a necessity in maintaining a healthy liver.

Milk Thistle:


  • Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has been used traditionally for over 2,000 years as an herbal remedy for a variety of ailments, particularly liver, kidney, and gall bladder problems. .
  • Scientific studies suggest that substances in milk thistle (especially a flavonoid called silymarin) protect the liver from toxins, including certain drugs, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), which can cause liver damage in high doses. (NIH Article)
  • Silymarin is the main active ingredient in milk thistle. "Silymarin is both an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant." (WebMD Article)
    • Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. And it may help the liver repair itself by growing new cells. 
    • *Asghar Z, Masood Z. Evaluation of antioxidant properties of silymarin and its potential to inhibit peroxyl radicals in vitro. Pak J Pharm Sci. 2008;21(3):249-254. * Wu JW, Lin LC, Tsai TH. Drug-drug interactions of silymarin on the perspective of pharmacokinetics. J Ehtnopharmacol. 2009;121(2):185-193 University of (National Institute of Health Evaluation)

Cleavers:

  • Herbalists classify Cleavers as an anti-spasmodic. It seems to be effective on the urinary and digestive tracts, making it an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome and interstitial cystitis.
  • Cleavers is widely used by Western herbalists to treat edema and other forms of swelling due to its stimulating effect on the lymphatic system, which is responsible for clearing extracellular waste from the body.
  • Since the lymphatic system and the liver are so closely related it could be assumed that it would be as good for the liver as it is for the lymph glands.
  • In Traditional Chinese Medicine cleavers are used to disperse stagnancy and inflammation and for urinary problems.
  • Other traditional uses of Cleavers are as a blood cleanser that purifies and detoxifies the blood. It is also considered to be an astringent (tightens or shrinks mucous membranes) and an antiseptic (kills germs and harmful bacteria). It is said to treat skin irritation, inflammation, wounds and burns because of these properties.

Barberry Bark:


  • Barberry Bark has a well known constituent called berberine. Barberry is a plant that’s been used for over 2,500 years for its medicinal properties.
  • Many studies have pointed out that the berberine contained within barberry has significant antibacterial, antifungal and antiprotozoal abilities. (NIH Study Link)
  • Barberry can be an effective liver cleanse and gallbladder flush agent. Berberine also aids in the secretion of bile, acts as a mild laxative and helps regulate the digestive processes. (NIH Study Link)

Parsley:
  • The “Vitamins to Health” website lists parsley among the natural herbs used traditionally for kidney cleansing. This is based on the premise that toxic products such as urea pass through the kidneys, and if the volume of fluid going through the kidneys increases (diuretic effect) , as is seen when parsley is used, these toxins leave the body at a faster rate, which cleanses or flushes the kidneys. Diuretic effect of parsley study.
  • Parsley is traditionally used for promoting a healthy kidney function and for being good for digestion.
  • The health benefits of parsley come from its active ingredients, namely - phenolic compounds, antioxidant flavonoids, essential oils like myristicin and apiol, and various nutrients like vitamins K, C and A.
  • This beautiful green herb also has more calcium and phosphorus than most herbs, as well as a good source of manganese, potassium, and chlorophyll.
  • Parsley and parsley essential oil have been used as a natural detox remedy, diuretic, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent for centuries in folk medicine.

Hydrangea:
  • The most common traditional use for hydrangea root is to assist the kidneys and bladder due to its effective diuretic property which helps increase the flow of urine.
  • Hydrangin is a naturally occurring phytochemical found in hydrangea. It is suggested that hydrangin is the constituent that makes hydrangeas effective against kidney stones.
  • Other valuable nutrients that can be found in hydrangeas include flavonoids like kaempferol and quercetin, and minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and sulfur, all of which are believe to contribute to better health.
  • Hydrangea is considered to be a diuretic. Traditionally Hydrangeas are used to help with increasing urine flow.
  • Hydrangea is also listed as a lithotrophic. History tells us that Hydrangeas were used to help dissolve gallbladder and kidney stones, as well as bone spurs and muscle calcification. It is assumed that the increased salts and calciums excreted in the urine may be the mechinism of action that facilitates the bone spurs and muscle calcification. There is little scientific evidence
  • The alkaloids present in hydrangea make it an effective anti-inflammatory. The alkaloids in hydrangeas seem to possess an effect similar to that of cortisone. Hydrangea has potential in easing infections and inflammations of the kidney, and relieving arthritis symptoms. (Article Link)

Uva Ursi:
  • Uva ursi also known as bearberry (because bears like eating the fruit), has been used medicinally since the 2nd century.
  • Traditionally Uva Ursi is most commonly used for treating acute urinary tract infections (UTIs).
    • Scientific research in test tubes and animals, have discovered that uva ursi's ability to fight infection are due to several chemicals, including arbutin and hydroquinone. The herb also contains tannins that have astringent effects. Astringents are said to shrink and tighten mucous membranes in the body. In turn, that helps reduce inflammation and fight infection.
    • Researchers believe that the kidneys filter arbutin, a compound found in the leaves of uva ursi, into the urine, where it acts as an antimicrobial.
  • One preliminary study found that uva ursi, when combined with dandelion root and leaf, helped prevent recurrent UTIs. (Shimizu M, Shiota S, Mizushima T, et al. Marked potentiation of activity of beta-lactams against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus by corilagin. Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2001;45(11):3198-201.)

What is a cleanse anyway?
Some people think of a cleanse as a way to remove undigested food from the digestive tract Celebrities use the word as a synonym to a weight loss program.
That is NOT what a cleanse is. A cleanse is a process to detoxify the body. It is a sort of "spring cleaning for the filters (internal organs like the kidney and liver) our bodies use to stay healthy and clean on the inside. It may promote some weight loss but that is not the main purpose.
The way I like to talk to people about the need for cleansing is to explain how over time toxins will build up in the body. That process is mostly related to what is available to eat, how much is eaten and whether or not the body is able to completely flush out the toxins present in all processed foods.
If you eat at fast food restaurants, food trucks, from street vendors or from cans of pre-cooked foods you are probably consuming large amounts of food that can be, over time, toxic. This is not to say that the food itself is toxic but some of the processing and additives in the food have minute portions of toxins in them. The purpose is to make the food have a longer shelf life and be more resistant to the germ warfare present while it is being prepared. I mean just think of a street vendor's or a gut truck's environment. These are not clean pristine germ free places to have your food prepared. The food itself needs a barrier of protection to keep all of us consumers safe.
To answer the question a Complete Body Cleanse is a cleanse that focus' on each of the filtering systems in the body. The Kidney, the Liver, the Colon or Bowel and the Gall Bladder all need regular maintenance in order to operate at there peek.

Why do I need to "CLEANSE"?
As we consume everything that we consume from processed milk products to processed meats and from processed vegetables to the processed cooking oils that we use there are minute carcinogens and impurities that need to be cleansed or removed from our bodies. Think of a heating and air conditioning system. Your house or apartment is fairly protected from the outside environment. Most of the dirt and grime are kept outside. Most people have a cleaning routine that catches most of the unwanted dirt and sanitizes the surface areas with antibacterial/ antimicrobial cleaning fluids. This is the same as the digestion and elimination of the food that we consume. Most of the toxins are "swept up" and "thrown out" through the urinary tract in the form of urine or pee and through the bowel in the form of feces or poop. Then just like your house has filters in the heating and air conditioning to collect the smaller particles, your body has filters like the kidney and the liver for the same purpose. The air filters are pretty easy because they are a remove and replace part in your house. The kidney and the liver on the other hand are not easily replaceable. Thus the need for a cleanse.

What is a "Complete Cleanse"?
A cleanse can be pretty specific. A person might choose to cleanse their bowel or to cleanse their kidney. A "Complete Cleanse" encompasses as close to all of the filtering organs as possible. Organs that need regular maintenance are the Kidney, the Liver, the Bowel (not an organ but definitely needs cleansing) and the Gall Bladder. The other parts of the body are dependant on those four organs for their cleaning maintenance.


What benefits will I receive after I complete a cleanse?
How do you feel after you really deep clean you house or your car? I know that I feel a little lighter on my feet and maybe a lot more confidant when someone pops over or asks for a ride. You know that your house or your car smells better and is certainly more impressive to anyone who gets to experience the newly cleansed facility.
Likewise I can say that there will be a newer more energetic (possibly less smelly) version of you. All of your filtering organs will be working at their peak. Your immune system won't have to work overtime to keep up with the toxin backup in your body. Bottom line you'll just feel better!

Health Information

Grandma's Herbs COMPLETE BODY CLEANSE has Herbal Remedies for detoxifying the liver, kidney, bowel and colon.

Why is it so important to cleanse?

Our bodies are subject to environmental "dirt" on a day to day basis. We consume things that leave It is logical to assume that our bodies need cleansing just like a house or a car. It's not enough to just take a bath or a shower just like it's not enough to just rinse off the outside of your car.Everything needs to be deep cleaned every now and then. And your body is no exception.

What are we really doing when we cleanse?

Cleansing the colon and the bowel is pretty easy to explain. The colon fills up a little each time we eat something. Every time we eliminate (poop) we empty some of the colon out. The stuff that doesn't empty out can get caught in the crevasses and creases that exist in the colon. The cleanse is designed to remove all of the "left-overs and thereby cleanse the colon. The kidney and liver are a little harder to describe.

Your kidneys are responsible for filtering toxins and wastes from your blood, and maintaining "homeostasis", a state of proper balance in the body by regulating blood pressure, various minerals, water and even hormones in the bloodstream. A kidney cleanse is especially important if you’ve ever suffered with any type of infection, any type of fluid retention or any type of urinary tract infection — or if you have any kidney stone symptoms. Cleansing involves detoxifying and providing the nutrition that the kidney and urinary tract need to remain healthy and function properly.

Cleansing the liver is similar to to the kidney. It's hard to describ but totally necissary to do. With all the environmental pollution, toxic body care products and processed foods, most people are in desperate need of a serious detox! A liver cleanse is a great way to do this. Keep in mind that one of the main ways that the body rids itself of toxins is through the liver. Keeping your liver healthy and functioning properly is a key to great health.
