I have difficulty in swallowing the meal shakes and do not like them, what can I do about it?

Why do you have to do a build-up and cutting down phase in the diet?
This is to diminish the great change from solid food to the detox. Cutting down on solid food decreases possible withdrawal symptoms. Therefore, we advise you to diminish the intake of coffee and alcohol in those days as well. After the detox your colon system is not only cleaned, but also a bit vulnerable. The cells of the colon wall are now getting straight contact with food. The colon system needs some time to adjust to the new situation. That is why you start with liquid food and afterwards soft and boiled food. You will find more information in our instructions.
If I want to eat something or drink something else than water during the detox; is this allowed?
For the best result it is better not to use any other food during the diet. If you want to eat something, because you normally have many more calories during the day, is it best to eat a mashed apple or a mashed tomato. Maximum 2x a day. Next to drinking water, it is also allowed to drink organic herbal tea, fruit juice or vegetable broth.
What can I do if I cannot go to the toilet during the diet?
With a very small percentage of our customers, defecation does not happen daily while on the the diet. By the way, it is not necessary to have immediate or daily defecation during the diet, it is totally normal when this happens every few days.
Some people have a more persistent biofilm, and because of its volume, it stays in its place. This is not harmful at all. The biofilm will always come out; it can just take some days. With some people it only comes when they are at the end of the diet, and also in this case this is not a problem at all. The diet is always a success; the result in this case is just a bit later. If needed, one can take additional measures to get the biofilm out immediately, first of all one can start drinking prune juice, or eat some soaked prunes. In case this is still not enough; we advise the usage of magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts). This is easy to find online to order or at a good Chemist shop. One dissolves 2 spoons in a large glass of water. It is wise to then stay in the vicinity of the toilet. In case of trouble during the diet which can’t be solved yourself, it is of course always possible to contact us via email.
I am following the diet and have little to no defecation. Also, I feel bloated. Is that normal?
With a certain percentage of people it is normal that during the diet not much comes out. With these people the biofilm swells a lot, because it is more persistent than others. The bloated feeling comes about because of the swollen biofilm, because of the ingredients of our product that make the biofilm absorb water; this is a positive process. Therefore it can take a little while before it comes out, sometimes even only when one starts to eat normally again.
In that case it is not realty recognizable as the biofilm, but tests have shown it always comes out.
In case you are not comfortable with this, you can take laxative tea during the diet, prune juice, or in even more severe cases, Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). But be assured, it is absolutely not abnormal that it is not visible -something is happening. Each person reacts differently and reacts in a unique way. The nice thing about our product is that it always does its work, whether it comes out after 1 or 7 days. Don’t lose courage and continue, the product will work on the biofilm, even when it only comes out after you are back eating normally.
Are good bacteria also getting lost with the diet?
No, this is not so. The good bacteria are situated in the colon wall. Because of the biofilm, the unhealthy mucous layer, the colon wall is getting pressure and dehydrates. A shortage of good bacteria comes about and a surplus of disease- creating bacteria. When you get rid of the unhealthy mucous layer, the colon wall will recover. So our product does not affect the “healthy biofilm”, and strictly speaking this is no biofilm. But this is the healthy mucous layer which covers all human mucous membranes. Think of the slimy surface of the inside of the mouth, that is the healthy mucous layer. Normally speaking, this should be the case in the colon on the colon wall, but because harmful bacteria have formed a shield over it the healthy mucous layer is dehydrating. The healthy mucous layer, if this is still present in the colon system, does not have a layer which can be permeated by our product, so this can’t be removed by our product. By using our product the biofilm of harmful bacteria disappears and the healthy mucous layer in the colon system can be rebuilt by the body.
After the diet we advise you to replenish the good bacteria by, for instance, eating probiotic nutrients and by using one of our Bioplus supplements, whereby the good bacteria can multiply. In this way you keep the colon flora in the best condition.
