I have taken the Colorado Cleanse and that is why I am discussing it now.
The Cleanse is the best detox program that I know of because it does the serious work of internal cleaning. It is very effective.
The Colorado Cleanse is not a superficial program. If you really would like to feel better and understand what you are doing and why this program will help you immensely.
I love how Dr. John Douillard, the program creator, explains all aspects of it so that you become more empowered in your health care. Too often we are kept in the dark about how to become healthy. Dr. Douillard demystifies it – to his credit.
The program is offering a 15% discount to Early Birds starting on 2/28 for newsletter subscribers. The Cleanse can be done at any time; however, if you would like to try the group cleanse, it is offered this year from April 9-22.
Below are the details of the program. In the interest of full disclosure, I am an affiliate.
How The Colorado Cleanse Is Different
The Colorado Cleanse is a 2 week at-home detox and digestive reset program, designed to help detoxify fat soluble toxins that can store for years in the fat cells.* Unlike other fad cleanses, the Colorado Cleanse is rooted in sound medical science and the ancient cleansing wisdom of Ayurveda. This cleanse has been developed by Dr. Douillard through decades of clinical practice with thousands of successful cleansers, many of whom are now its biggest fans.
Where fad cleanses emphasize extreme fasting and dangerously unbalanced diets, the Colorado Cleanse relies on a gentle, simple diet that allows the body to burn fat without hunger pains.*
And where fad cleanses trigger blood sugar crashes, starvation-mode cravings and immediate binging afterwards, the Colorado Cleanse balances the blood sugar, allowing the body to enjoy the contented blissful energy of natural fat-metabolism, while you continue working and going about your daily life.*
The Colorado Cleanse is unique because it repairs the body’s detox and digestive channels before starting the detox.* Cleansing without this preparation can move toxins from one fat cell to another, which defeats the purpose of cleansing and often manifests as stubborn digestive weakness and symptoms of lymphatic congestion.*
The Colorado Cleanse is a 2 week at-home detox and digestive rejuvenation program. You can do the Anytime Colorado Cleanse at your own convenience, or your can join us each Spring and Fall during the Group Colorado Cleanse. The Colorado Cleanse can be done while working and leading your regular lifestyle.
Colorado Cleanse Success Stories
The Colorado Cleanse has helped thousands of people. Here are some of the many stories of people who have benefited from this wonderful detox program. I highly recommend that you read them.
What does the Cleanse involve?
During the 2-week Colorado Cleanse you will do a daily practice of yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises, 12 minutes of aerobic exercise, take Ayurvedic herbal formulas that support the detox process, and eat a special diet during the three phases*:
PRE-CLEANSE (Days 1-4)
To prepare your body to flush these toxins out of their storage sites, we will first make sure that your natural detox channels are functional by following an allergen-free whole foods diet, eating 4 specific foods each day, and taking the specified herbs.* This will help:
- Balance Blood Sugar and Heal Intestinal Villi: Start by stabilizing your blood sugar and healing the intestinal mucosa of your intestinal tract.*
- De-Stagnate the Lymphatic System: Improve the function of your lymphatic system, which drains the gut through the GALT (Gut Associated Lymphatic Tissue) where 80% of the body’s immune system is housed.*
- Thin the Bile and Prepare to Detox: Once the detox channels of the lymph are moving, decongest the liver and thin the bile. Adequate bile flow is critical in optimizing and maintaining the detox channels of the body.*
MAIN CLEANSE (Days 5-11)
During the Main Cleanse, you will eat a simplified diet of nonfat khichari, which is a specific type of rice and beans prepared in a way that helps heal the digestion.* You will also drink increasing amounts of ghee each morning.
- Reset Fat Metabolism, Flush the Liver and Detox Toxic Fat: Once the liver and bile are functioning better, cleanse the toxic chemicals that are stored in the fat cells.*
- Self-Inquiry Exercises to help release old emotions, patterns, habits and behaviors that store in the fat cells.*
POST CLEANSE (Days 12-14)
After the Main Cleanse, you will return to the Pre Cleanse diet and add a Digestive Reset Protocol to boost your digestive fire.*
- Reset Digestive Strength: After the cleanse, reset your upper digestive strength, which is the most common cause of digestive distress.*
AFTER THE CLEANSE
You will continue taking your herbal formulas for a few more weeks. In addition, we recommend that you follow a seasonal, whole foods diet, which you will naturally have the craving for now.

A few days before each phase of the Cleanse, we will email you access to a 15-20 minute audio lecture where I discuss why that phase is important, how to prepare for it, protocols, and how to prevent any potential speed bumps. The lectures are pre-recorded and you can listen to them at your convenience:
- Main Cleanse

Each morning during the Cleanse I will send you an email with all the instructions and protocols you need for that day. I will also share some stories, information and
Online Community Forum

Colorado Cleanse book
My Colorado Cleanse book explains how and why to do this cleanse in detail and is based on guiding thousands of patients through this detox and digestion reset. Our Cleansers report that their Colorado Cleanse book is an important resource that they refer to daily during the Cleanse. 192 pages.

Ayurveda for Detox DVD
This beautifully produced instructional DVD guides you through the daily detox yoga, meditation, breathing exercises and self-massage that you will do each day of the cleanse – and hopefully afterwards. It also includes an educational Ayurvedic talk by Dr. Douillard on how to follow a seasonal detoxifying diet every day of the year.
