The first cleanse I tried was the Master Cleanse which had so many detox effects it was almost scary. Now I'm on Day 3 of 365 Complete & have no "detox" symptoms so I don't know if this is working. My stomach stays bloated & I'm gassy all day & that's it. Should this be all the effects I expect?

I started taking the 365 whole body cleanse. Iam now on my 5th day and feel nothing different. I drink tons of water and do not eat unhealthy. The only thing I feel is frustration with not being able to workout. Can some one educate me on how long it will take before I feel lighter? And no so much with weight, but with my bloating and feeling heavy. This is the 1st time I have ever done a cleanse and I am 34, I feel it is important and just want to make sure it is doing it's job. Thank you so very much, Misty

This information was very helpful. My boyfriend and I have considered detoxing our bodies, but due to our lack of experience with internal cleansing, we were not certain of the effects nor impact that it would have on our health. We've researched a number of products and will try the Renew Life line of products.

I have been taking the Complete Body Cleanse which is the 365 whole foods brand of cleanse. I do not see on the packaging any recommendations on usage past the 2 week period. I would like to take it "all" the time. Is there a reason I can't do that? Is there a recommended time I should take a break between subsequent cleanses?

I started the 365 Whole Body cleanse Friday evening - now I'm on my 4th day of the cleanse. I am experiencing some very strange and irritating detox symptoms: For the past 2 days, all over my body (including palms and soles of my feet) my skin gets really red-hot and itchy. Once I scratch the area several different sized white bumps appear, which look like mosquito bites. This drives me crazy for a little while, then it seems to go away after about 15 minutes. Many people have told me this is normal, especially since it is my first cleanse. Has anyone else experienced such symptoms?

I am currently on day 5 of the whole body cleanse and am feeling good- except for a few abdominal cramps and discomfort. However, I started my husband on the regimen too and he is not doing so well. He had constipation on day 1 and it still doesn't feel good for him. I made him drink a lot of water but it still did not work for him. So he has discontinued after 2 days. How do I get him on board? May be it was too much fiber for him. Any suggestions?

I'm on day 5 of the cleanse, and I have actually GAINED 4lbs, feel more constipated, and am miserable. I've had more bowl movements, but I feel like I'm not going consistently. I'm eating very healthy, loads of vegetables, and lean protein, yet I feel like this cleanse is really not helping. The bloat has me wearing dresses, I can't even fit in my pants. ugh.. will this phase pass or should I just stop? No sugar, no caffeine, nothing fried- tons of organic, tons of fiber.. but its just.. meh.

I'm starting the 365 complete body cleanse after the holidays. My concern is this: I'm on thyroid meds and daily iron supplements for anemia. I don't absorb iron from food caused by a partial gastrectomy several years ago. I must take the iron or my blood count goes down. Will my body still be able to detox while taking these things? If you tell me to get the advise of a doctor, I don't think he or she would be supportive of a cleanse in the first place.

This is day 12 for me. Although I am eating clean with plenty of water and fiber, there has been no significant change. In my opinion, taking 365 cleanse is similar to taking a bunch of metamucil for several days. Anyone else feel the same?

I have been thru 4 rounds of prednisone for allergic outbreaks. I would like to do a cleanse to aid in flushing out the steroids.

Last year I found out that I am intolerant to gluten. Since then I have avoided it as much as possible. But, since that time I have become more sensitive to other foods. By sensitive I mean I become bloated, gassy and constipated. I am wanting to do a cleanses to basically cleanse out my system and then reintroduce foods again (not including gluten). Which cleanse would be good for me?

Hi. I know there is a certain type of product that helps when you are cleansing that binds together most of the junk in your food system to help cleanse your body. I heard that if it sits in water for a while it actually turns into a gel like form. I am not sure what it is, so I was wondering what the name of it is. It might start with a C?

I am preparing to start the 365 body cleanse tomorrow, but am concerned about the size of the fiber pills. Is it ok for me to cut them in half before swallowing them? Thank you.

@Dawn Thanks for asking this question! It should be totally fine to split your fiber pills in half. Make sure to take them with lots of water. Good luck on your cleanse!

I stared the cleanse 3 days ago. I have cut back on fatty foods. I have not noticed any change in my body as of yet. I am still working out every morning I'm wondering if there is a specific food I should eat more of or stay away from. Thank you.

I have a 13 year old daughter who has been having bad acne, some cystic. Several friends have recommended a yeast cleanse followed by a skin detox, as well as coming off of yeast products and limiting her dairy intake. I would appreciate your opinion here. Also, for the past 3 weeks, under doctor supervision, I have been going through a miscarriage. During which time I have also suffered from a sinus cold and now have a yeast infection in my ear. My body seems rather stressed. I wonder if it would be wise to also do a yeast cleanse or some type of detox and if so, is there one you could recommend or should I talk with someone at our local store? Thank you in advance for your help. Blessings on your day. Shelly

I'm in my second week of the "365 Complete Body Cleanse" . I must say that I'm extremely satisfied with the results. My question: How often can I repeat this 2-week regimen? and is it safe to continue to take 1-2 caps/day of the 365 Milk Thistle Liver Cleanse after completing the full "365 Complete Body Cleanse" program?
