Home / Elimination

Proper elimination is a key component of the Neera™ Natural Detox & Cleansing Lifestyle Plan. All the toxins and wastes have to be continuously washed away during the diet, rather than being allowed to accumulate again somewhere else in the body.

During the cleanse it is normal to urinate frequently. After all, you are giving your body an internal flush and most of the body’s toxins are eliminated this way.

Bowel movements however, usually become less frequent during the Neera™ Natural Plan. This is simply because you aren’t eating any solid food. As part of the cleansing process, you should have a bowel movement every day.

The Neera Lax teaFor most people we recommend drinking a mild herbal laxative tea like the Neera™-Lax tea and/or drinking the “sea-salt shake” (See recipe below.) Some people who are very regular with their bowel movements will not need any laxative stimulation.
Drinking a cup of laxative tea at night before going to bed loosens waste deposits in the colon. Then in the morning, another cup of laxative tea usually stimulates a bowel movement.

In the original Master Cleanser / Lemonade diet, Stanley Burroughs recommended substituting the morning cup of laxative tea with the “sea-salt shake”. In our version of the program, the “sea salt shake” is something we include for those having particular problems with elimination. It is a very effective laxative that is also a very good colonic. It doesn’t taste good, but it is very effective. To prepare the “sea-salt shake,” mix one quart of warm water with two level teaspoons of sea salt. It is very important that you use sea salt and not regular table salt. Drink the whole thing first thing in the morning. A bowel movement will usually occur quickly within a half hour to one hour.
