Every natural foods store now has a section of the store called “the internal cleansing section.” Before Yerba Prima, that section did not exist. When Yerba Prima first called its herb and fiber whole body cleansing program an Internal Cleansing Program in 1983, it changed the way people related to detoxification and cleansing.
Before Yerba Prima, cleansing was a fringe concept usually combined with fasting and enemas, and obviously performed only by a dedicated few. How many Americans are going to fast and give themselves enemas for days at a time, no matter how persuasive the promotional literature for the program?
Yerba Prima was the first company to introduce a common sense approach to internal cleansing, making it easy to incorporate into our busy lives. No fasting. No enemas. Just high quality herb and fiber formulas to gently stimulate our body’s systems of elimination, remove toxins and improve health.
Yerba Prima was the first company to introduce a whole body internal cleansing system that helps all of the systems and organs of elimination. Yerba Prima called this new system the Internal Cleansing Program.
Before the Internal Cleansing Program was introduced in 1983, other companies had products that focused on one or another system of elimination. There was a liver herb formula. There was a kidney flush formula. There was even a colon formula. But for people who wanted to improve their overall health by removing toxins throughout the body, taking multiple products that were not designed to go together was impractical and very expensive.
Thus Yerba Prima’s introduction of the Internal Cleansing Program was warmly received. The key products in the original Internal Cleansing Program box were the Kalenite Cleansing Herbs formula and Psyllium Husks Powder. Kalenite is a blend of eight herbs that promote the release of toxins and waste through multiple channels of elimination. Psyllium Husks Powder contains highly active fiber for absorbing toxins and sweeping waste out of the colon. The Internal Cleansing Program is simple to understand, easy to use, and can be followed while continuing normal family and life activities. You don’t have to camp out in the bathroom! It achieves excellent results without the need for fasting, enemas and other extreme measures. On the other hand, people who like to fast, as well as professional colonic therapists, have both found that their cleansing benefits are even greater when they add Kalenite Cleansing Herbs and Psyllium Husks Powder to their normal regimens.
Internal Cleansing practices have been used through the ages by a variety of cultures around the world. There have been many anecdotal reports of health benefits from Internal Cleansing, but very little research has been done. As the industry leader in Internal Cleansing, Yerba Prima commissioned Dr. Jeffrey Bland to design and perform the first independent clinical study on Internal Cleansing.
This clinical study gave the first objective rationale for some of the health benefits people report when following the Internal Cleansing Program. Following 11 weeks using the Internal Cleansing Program, subjects had a decrease in harmful bacteria in the colon, indicating a healthier colon environment. There was a reduction in undigested protein and putrefaction by-products, a key measure of reduced toxic load in the body. In addition, there was an improvement in water-soluble vitamin absorption, indicating that the Internal Cleansing Program actually improved the digestive process as it removed toxins and improved colon health. Subjects in the study reported more energy, fewer headaches and an improved feeling of well-being.
After over 15 years of experience with Internal Cleansing, Yerba Prima introduced in 1997 the first gender specific advanced Internal Cleansing products. They are the Women’s Renew Internal Cleansing System and the Men’s Rebuild Internal Cleansing System, created to meet the specific needs of women and men. Women’s Renew Internal Cleansing contains energizing and balancing women’s herbs Dong quai root extract and Chastetree berry extract to support maximum benefits for women who use the program. Men’s Rebuild Internal Cleansing contains energizing and balancing men’s herbs Asian Ginseng root extract and Sarsaparilla root extract to support maximum benefits for men who use the program. These advanced Internal Cleansing Systems take cleansing a step further by helping to cleanse, protect and rebuild all of the eliminative and digestive systems of the body.
Yerba Prima has other important cleansing products for specific needs. Yerba Prima’s Tampico Skin Brush is a valuable adjunct to any cleansing program. Most people don’t know that the skin is our largest organ of elimination. Yerba Prima’s natural bristle brush helps maintain healthy skin and simultaneously stimulates cleansing through the lymphatic system to remove cellular toxins throughout the body.
Great Plains® Bentonite Detox is the premium bentonite (also known as montmorillonite) product on the market formulated for maximum removal of toxins from the alimentary canal.
LivCleanse Formula contains liver cleansing milk thistle seed extract along with the liver support herbs dandelion root and leaf, and yellow dock root. Milk Thistle Extra Strength contains a patented milk thistle seed extract that is 4-20 times as strong as regular milk thistle seed extract for superior liver support.
