When you're 100% raw can you do the Psyllium and Bentonite Clay shakes for the 30 days they recommend to clean out your colon?

Hi, I am currently doing the shakes (as part as candida treatment)..I dont' see why you couldn't do them for 30 days as a part of general good health; did I misread your question? Let me tell you, I am the most constipated person..lol...ever and these really work for me, along with lots of salads, greens, water and efa's. Its like a heavensent for me

Not really an answer to your query but I take 1-2t. flax powder with 1/2t. probiotic powder in water every night before bed and this has been a dream with my fight with candida and being stuck!! :o
BTW do you have any more info on the P&B shakes I am not familliar with it?

What type of candida cleanse are you taking?
What are P&B shakes?
How long does it require?
How do you like it so far? :)

I just wanted to know if I should do it while on raw or not. Thanks!
Here's the info -
Psyllium & Bentonite Shakes!
As the colon thickens with impacted feces, the blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris though the bowel wall; all tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Quoting from an article in USA Today, dated January 11th99 Most people who eat the standard American goo and glue diet have about 5-10 pounds of matter stored in the colon
The Master Cleanser and the Colon Cleanse The Ultimate Fast is the simplest and most effective way to remove waste and to rid the intestinal track of hardened mucus buildup and impacted fecal matter.
What to expect from the P&B Shakes: It may take 3-5 shakes a day and or several days before you start passing mucous plaque and impacted matter. Do not be alarmed over some of the strange material you may pass. Its not unusual to pass rope-like material which is lengthy and elastic. Look for sticky gray or brown substance resembling a jelly fish, (unhealthy mucous) You may see small or large black ribbons resembling pieces of broken tires. (impacted feces)
1. 8-10 oz of water or diluted juice (you may use 1oz of apple or orange juice)
2. 1 (one) tablespoon of liquid Bentonite - formula #7
3. 1 (one) heaping teaspoon of Psyllium - formula #9
Blend or shake in covered jar, or use a hand blender.
Drink quickly before jelling action starts.
Important: Drink another glass of water immediately.
After ½ hr. drink a second glass of water.
Sufficient water is a key to success with this cleanse!
How many Shakes? Start in the evening prior to bedtime.
The next morning upon rising,
One mid morning,
one in the afternoon
Start with one shake a day and gradually increase as the body adjust to the additional fiber.
When? The Shakes must be taken on an empty stomach, at least one hour before your MC lemonade.
Wait at least 1/2hr. before your laxative tea.
How Long? Suggested time 7-10 days, but it may be continue for up to 30 days.
Caution: Psyllium or other bulking agents should be avoided in cases of bowel obstruction or perforations.

I would've put this in another post, but wasn't sure if you'd see it there..
The Candida cleanse I am doing is partly taken from the Wholeapproach.com website. They recommend the P&B "shake" (or purge as they call it) twice a day, in the am and pm along with Caprylic acid (they sell a liquid form). I just finished a round of Fungal Defense (not sure how its worked, I am having major food intolerances and slipped a few times). So instead of the caprylic acid liquid they recommend, I have just starting using Yeast cleanse (Solaray). The program also recommends taking a good Acidophilous product. I also used Candex, its not an anti fungal, but an enzyme product that is not from the program but I've read it great for candida. So, as you can see I've kinda taken matters into my own hands with mixing and matching some products. If you go to the website I mentioned you'll be bombarded with lots of info. The program sounds great, but its extensive, if you follow it completely it can be over a year (I'm sure this is for severe cases); they rotate anti fungals, going from the Caprylic acid to GSE, then I believe Kolorex. Its supposed to really knock out candida and minimize any major die off effects. So far I would say the P&B is working pretty good (giving me a few bowel movements whereas before I had 0..really and I mean zilch!!)
I will mention one thing however, the Wholeapproach websited is not a RAW food or vegan site, however you can pick up some great tips, advice and even a few recipes to use. Good luck.

I know they have bentonite clay/powder at our health food store. This "recipe" posted here says liquid....Is there a difference? And what are the "formula #'s" listed after the bentonite and psyllium....I am so greatful to find a homemade concoction rather and do not want to do colonics or enemas thank you very much!!!! :D

Please tell me you don't have to fast :eek: for 30 days to do the p&b shakes....I try and try but can't last more than a day!!!! I have 6 others in my family eating SAD and although I don't eat any of it and am 100% raw I have a hard time fasting....+ I exercise a lot and am active and busy....thanks guys

i can see you're getting bombarded from all sides on this with questions. i, too, wonder if this requires fasting, due to needing an empty stomach before each shake - up to 3 per day - leaves no time to eat.
is this what you did? if you did eat, WHEN di you manage it?
what is the website for this stuff? it sounds like the digestinol website my husband looked into.

are you P&B shake drinkers concerned with the metal content in bentonite clay??
i am also interested in consuming this instead of buying a formal "cleanse"...i have heard some into about this metal in the bc...
