I'm looking for information on a safe and affordable way to do a body cleanse. Does anyone have any suggestions? Plus what are the pros and cons to it!
Thank you to all who reply. I am grateful for the support and knowledge from others.

Eat a diet that consists primarily of fresh vegetables and fruits.

I'd go with Hoser - especially if you haven't done cleanses before. When I want a serious at home cleanse to kick myself out of bad ibs/colitis spells, I go raw for two weeks - just raw fruits, nuts, seeds and vegetables in reasonable portions in line with my calorie needs/limits. Ruffage is like scrubbing bubbles in my digestive system. Smile

If I'm really uncomfortable, I'll drink an organic apple cider vinegar cocktail (big glass of water and a few tablespoons of ACV) three times a day with that diet. I will also double my water intake during this cleanse and maybe fork over a little cash for the Whole Foods cleanser kit (mostly fiber pills and milk thistle really ) and add a good probiotic blend. Together those two shouldn't cost you more than $20. Sometimes I'll take an herbal laxative tea once a day along with it all. I try to cut out coffee and alcohol entirely but I have never found a vodka/seltzer/lime cocktail once a week to derail my cleansing.

When you do such cleanes be careful about having routine bathroom access since you are going to to need it, know that your tummy will make louder sounds sometimes, and soften your physical exertion accordingly.

I started one of these yesterday actually. I'll warn you that caffeine headaches are a bummer for the first three days if you are a 3 cup per day coffee junkie like me.

I have never had a "cleanse" in my life. I am interested. Why do people do these?

I read the book "Clean" by Dr Alejandro Junger. I was drawn to it because it was supposed to help with seasonal allergies (and I did see some results there). It also claimed to be able to help with depression. I liked it because you were still able to eat one solid food meal a day but the down side is that is is a four week process.

I would recommend it to anyone who has digestive issues. There are a lot of foods on the do not eat list, but once you wrap your head around it its not as restrictive as it first appears.

Demystifying Detox Diets. The bottom line is that there's no real evidence for detox/cleanses. They don't really do any good, and they can sometimes do harm.

If you really want to do something good for your body, eat fresh natural foods rather than factory-made foodlike substances.

You only fail when you stop trying. So take that first step NOW (not tomorrow, next week, or next month) and keep on going! Start with a first step that seems easy and take it from there.
