@Jenny Thank you for your question. I have reached out to our experts and here is their response... "According to our information on file the silicon dioxide in this product is a naturally occurring form of the mineral silica which is sometimes derived from sand -- there is no cause for concern."

@Bob Unfortunately, since every body operates differently, this lack of change could be due to any number of variable. Thus, we are unable to offer a suggestion for change without much more information. I encourage you to reach out to a health care professional for a recommendation of this nature. Also, 3 days is not a ton of time for change to occur; so if you stay on your same cleansing path for 2 weeks, it is much more likely you'll see a change.

I have dogs that have had worms. My question is, is there a specific type of detox for me and my family to take to rid any possible parasites we may have in our bodies due to the possible transition from our animals?

@Shelly Wow, that's a lot to deal with at one time. I'm sorry for your misfortune. Unfortunately, we are unable to give medical advice due to limitations set in place by DSHEA, the key law which regulates dietary supplements in the US. The best option is to reach out to your general health care provider regarding these questions. Best of luck and thanks for reaching out.

@Mohamed We would like to remind you that the number one source for health information is going to be your physician. Please consult your physician for all health related inquiries. However, I have reached out to our specialists/nutritionists and they have offered the following response. I will update this information when I hear more. "It is safe to continue taking the milk thistle (1-2 caps/day) after the cleanse is over. Some experts actually suggest taking milk thistle on a regular basis for liver support. "

I am concerned about the silicon dioxide in the 365 Complete Body Cleanse. I have heard it is an element found in glass. I don't want to put anything that is unnatural in my body. Is this safe?

I bought the 365 Everyday Value brand 14-day complete body cleanse. I was wondering how often I should perform these types of cleanses? Did this same one before about a year ago. I loved it. I just don't know how often I can do it and if too often is harmful. I have a sensitive stomach and I noticed it helped me a lot last time. Thank you.

@KARLI - I would encourage you to talk this over with your health care provider for their advice on how often you should cleanse. They should be able to help you out!

I got the 365 two week cleanse and am only one day into it and I lost the instructions. Can I find them anywhere online?

@NATALIE - Unfortunately we do not have a list online. I would suggest calling your local store and maybe they can scan and email you the instructions! You can find their contact info at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/list.

I just started using the 365 every day value complete body cleanse for the 14 days and I wanted to know what are the best foods to eat on this?

@JENNI - It's somewhat of a personal choice when it comes to your diet during a cleanse. We have customers with varying opinions on this. I would recommend reaching out to your health care professional as they can provide more insight. If you are mainly looking for a healthier way of eating, check out our Health Starts Here page as it has tons of ideas and recipes: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/healthy-eating.

I have been on the 365 total body cleanse for three days with no bowel movement and have drank so much water that I'm full and it still isn't helping. Is this normal?

@LAUREN - I would definitely suggest that you reach out to your health care provider for their expertise opinion. Best of luck.

Hi, I'm going to start the 365 2 week cleanse. Can you please send me a list of what: I "can" eat and what I "can not" eat. Can you please email it to me? I need some ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Thanks, Val My whole foods location is: Marlton, NJ

I started the cleanse and have that "dirty" feeling as well... But I did research and found that it is because toxins are getting out of the body at this time and this is the time where you might have breakouts,bad breath, etc. just my input- knowing toxins are getting out is keeping me on the cleanse!

I was on day 2 of the 7 day cleanse and I started developing cystic acne on my face. By day 4 it was so bad, so painful that I had to stop. I am now a little over 1 day off of the cleanse and it is starting to clear. Is this normal? It was so painful and so scary that I could not continue. :( What could've possibly caused this?

Are there cleansing programs I can purchase at Whole Foods in Dedham, MA?

Is there a daily meal plan/guideline that should be used in conjunction with the Complete Body Cleanse (Easy 2 Week Plan)? If so, would it be possible to have it e-mailed to me? Or is is posted somewhere on-line? Thanks!!

@KD - We do not have a meal plan for the cleanse, but we do offer a meal plan that follows our Health Starts Here guidelines. You can find more info at http://wholefoodsmarket.com/healthy-eating/health-starts-here. You'll want to speak with your healthcare provider before changing your diet.
