REPORT: JOH – 7 DAY CLEANSE
If anyone needed to do this program, it was I. Having read
the book on colon irrigation and after many lengthy talks
with Bernard on the subject; I realized that I fitted the
profile of a person with a very sick colon:
My appendix was removed when I was 16.
I had my tonsils removed at the age of 18, after suffering
with tonsillitis for the most part of 10 years (I didn’t
believe in removing organs as God gives them to one for
a specific purpose, yet my body was so full of toxins, these
organs had putrefied to the extent where they were affecting
my overall health and had to be removed.)
I started menstruating and was wearing a bra at the age
of 9, my growth was phenomenal during this time, and my
hormones were seemingly out of control. This growth spurt
left me with cysts on my ovaries and in my breasts. I had
a biopsy on my left breast at the age of 19 (benign, thank
During my pregnancy, I had become very obese and had been
battling with my weight ever since. I only learnt about
food combining, colon cleansing, detoxing, etc. relatively
recently and was determined that I would no longer follow
any more “diets” (I had tried most; shakes,
crash & fad diets, even programs worked out by dieticians,
who unfortunately are often unaware of poor food combining.)
I have always been fastidious about cleanliness, but my
own inner “dustbin” (my colon), was filthy!
THE TIME TO TAKE CONTROL OF MY HEALTH WAS LONG OVERDUE.
I started my transformation from being an inactive, fat,
unhappy and unhealthy person in August 2001. I read the
“Fasting” book written by Professor Ehret, initially
following the concept because I was still of the mindset
that it would get me thin real quick (I was sick and tired
of myself and others making excuses for my obesity: “It
must be glandular/hormonal/a slow metabolism, etc.”
but I thought - “No one is fat in a concentration
camp”, so fasting made a lot of sense to me), basically
what this did for me was it taught me what true hunger really
is (a fat person forgets what hunger is, they eat mostly
for emotional reasons), and it allowed my stomach to shrink
to a normal size. Before the week of detoxing was out, during
which time I had been reading other literature on the subject
of good health and having spoken to Bernard about what I
was doing, I realized that my health should be my first
priority and any weight-loss would be an added benefit.
Bernard suggested I do the 6-Day Inner Cleanse; unfortunately
I only did this about a month later.
The 6-Day Inner Cleanse is basically a program, where one
eats copious amounts of fruits and vegetables (live foods),
this could be done by anyone quite easily, but by the time
I did it, I had been living on a mixture of 2 litres of
orange juice mixed with 2 litres of filtered water throughout
the day and a small vegetable meal for supper for about
a month, so I found the quantities of fruit and vegetables
I had to consume quite daunting at times. However, I felt
extremely good and lost 5 kgs during this period, more than
I had lost whilst “fasting”! This was a good
indicator that fasting is great when in poor health, but
not so when one wants to be healthy and lose weight simultaneously.
I started gym soon after completing the 6-day program;
I was well on my way to a happier, thinner but more importantly,
a healthier me! I applied myself to gym and eating correctly
and the fat just melted away. I had previously done power-lifting,
where one is required to eat loads of protein, “the
bigger, the better” is the mindset adopted by power-lifters,
but the only exhilaration one feels is when you are doing
reps and lifting increasingly heavier weights. I had NEVER
felt as healthy and strong as I did whilst eating correctly
and following a sensible gym plan (which included weight
Three years ago, Bernard spoke to me about colon cleansing;
I was terrified at the thought and summarily dismissed the
idea, much to my regret. I would have shortened the period
of agonizing over my weight and health so much, if I had
just followed his advice then. However, after coming this
far with my weight-loss and feeling incredibly fit and strong,
I made up my mind that the 7-Day Cleanse was the final step
in my quest for ultimate health.
EVE: Wednesday 3/4/2002:
The day before I started my 7-day inner cleanse, I had a
fair sized lunch, chicken and salad and even a small ice
cream and fruit salad for dessert. I went to gym that night
and did a major workout, knowing I probably wouldn’t
be able to do much gym work during the next 7 days (due
to lack of energy only) – I was determined I wouldn’t
quit gym completely over the next week. (Bedtime: 00:03am)
DAY ONE: Thursday 4/4/2002:
Got to bed far too late to do a colema in the morning before
work, was also really nervous about enemas – had never
done one before and was facing that part with great trepidation.
Also, it takes a lot of preparation which one is not aware
of. You need to know that a good few hours are required
to get all the “goodies” ready and to familiarize
yourself with the system.
Went through the day, following the schedule with great
excitement, only got one mild headache around midday. My
enema that evening was absolutely fantastic! I was totally
relaxed and it actually felt like I’d had a massage.
A good start! (Faecal matter: didn’t use the colander
yet but noticed some odd black pieces and also some really
old looking ones, plus a smaller light brown one –
a lot of matter was excreted).
Slept very well (Bedtime: 23:00pm)
DAY TWO: Friday 5/4/2002:
Lost 1kg by the morning! Did my enema – mostly tiny
black things, green & purple, looked like long raisins.
Had two stomach / bowel cramps during the day. Followed
my schedule as per usual during the day. Had things to do
in the afternoon so only got to do my colema later. Went
to gym – 5 minutes on exercise bike, then weights
but battled terribly. Got a headache and felt dizzy and
a bit disorientated. Did my best but it really wasn’t
easy – too little energy. (Maybe a morning session
would be better…) Only got to do my colema at about
07:45pm, relaxed and enjoyed it – loads of black stringy
stuff and some light brown ones too. Felt good afterwards.
(Bedtime: 10:30pm – very sleepy)
DAY THREE: Saturday 6/4/2002:
Lost another kg by the morning. Did an enema, just little
black & purple articles in colander again. Woke up late
(about 7am) so my schedule was thrown out a bit. Went to
church – took double doses of supplements before and
a double dose of the cleansing drink afterwards. Battled
to concentrate throughout and felt rather weak. Same pattern
every day now…feel great in the morning and as the
day progresses, so my strength and mental capacities diminish.
Had a mild headache this afternoon. It is however much easier
to follow this program when you don’t have to work
(i.e. doing much concentration, or paperwork) during the
7 days. Did my colema (with peeled, cut up 4 garlic cloves
(garlic is used specifically as an anti-parasitic) in hot
water. Felt quite a few pangs during the colema and much
to my surprise I saw long white “strings” in
the colander. I placed them in a disposable plastic container
for further analysis. (I believe they may be worms or a
long worm, which has broken into segments – this was
confirmed later, it was a Tapeworm!). At any rate, I’m
excited about the “find”.
DAY FOUR: Sunday 7/4/2002:
Lost another kg! Got up real early, did my colema. Nothing
interesting in colander but feel exceptionally good today.
Went to gym at 9am and did an intensive two hour workout.
Felt super throughout – no headaches! Went into work
in the afternoon and still felt full of energy. Unfortunately
I didn’t have my supplements or cleansing drink goodies
with me, so I missed out on both, will double dose somewhere
tomorrow, probably a.m. Colema took really long, I was very
sleepy. Found some faeces that looked like large brown grapes
– strange looking!
(Bedtime: 09:45pm – very sleepy)
DAY FIVE: Monday 8/4/2002:
Lost ½ a kg. Nothing interesting in the colander
– virtually nothing. Had a lot of pain where my blockage
is (near my appendix scar). Also urinated a small amount
of blood this a.m.! (?) The pain in my right side subsided
during the day but I could still feel it when I touched
the area. Hardly urinated at all in the morning, but that
also was much improved by the evening. All in all, felt
really super otherwise. Haven’t felt any hunger for
two days now (just the desire to taste certain foodstuffs).
There was a major storm tonight and I got home late from
work and was completely drenched. There was no power at
home for a while so did my colema late. Finished just before
11pm! But my one big blockage came out – a dark brown
rubber-like “thing” (+/- 15 cm long and 4cm
wide) plus, what looked like a piece of stick (maybe a cinnamon
stick eaten in a curry months or years ago!) Bernard has
asked me to keep all future samples. Had a good long detox
bath. Feel super!
(Bedtime: 00:50 – not sleepy)
DAY SIX: Tuesday 9/4/2002:
Did colema in the morning, as usual very little to report,
just small swollen raisin look-alikes. Felt absolutely awful
today. Definitely my worst day – felt tired, depressed,
emotional and nauseous just about all day. Bernard explained
it’s from the toxins, which have been released when
that big blockage came out. (Regret not keeping that one!)
Followed my program as usual. Did evening colema and found
quite a number (three biggish ones) of rubber-like strings
– kept them for Bernard to freeze and photograph.
Tomorrow’s my divorce case hearing and I forgot to
weigh myself today, had so much to prepare beforehand. Was
very tired but had to prepare for my day ahead – was
extremely excited about my three “samples” though!
DAY SEVEN: Wednesday 10/4/2002:
Had no time in the morning to do my colema – was up
at 05:30am (only had 4½hours sleep – not really
enough for a big day like today). Took my calphonite drink
1st thing in the morning and then almost immediately afterwards
had to run to the toilet. Just made it in time, basically
had a very runny tummy, but one could also put it down to
nerves. Had to go a second time before I left for court.
Took supplements and beetroot drink with. Had a double dose
of cleansing drink before I left. Only had two opportunities
during the day to take my supplements. My divorce was granted,
today I’m so incredibly liberated, from an 11 year
old prison and from the prison my bowels have been in for
30 years!! Quickly weighed myself when I got home and saw
to my incredible surprise that I had lost a further 2½kgs
in the last two days. That’s a total of 6kgs in 7
days! Went to the movies in the evening and had fresh granadilla
juice and popcorn (bad girl to break my fast with popcorn!)
I also had three cups of coffee when I got home, everything
tasted fabulous but my stomach couldn’t handle it.
I felt nauseous and bloated. I was getting cramps and pains
in my bowels. I wasn’t sure if I should vomit or run
and defecate. I did a long and very slow colema - felt a
number of blockages released and was once again ecstatic
to find two long and two smallish rubber-like specimens
and many smaller hard rubber nodules! Wow! After 7 days
the stuff’s still coming out!
10 /10 - This is the greatest thing I have ever done for
myself & my peace of mind where my health is concerned…NOTHING
can supercede what the 7 day cleanse can do for one!
