Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

We came back from the Young Living convention excited to try the new 5 Day Nutritive Cleanse. We jumped right in with it the first week of October 2006.

The 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse is basically 3 meals a day starting with the Digest + Cleanse essential oil softgel followed by a shake of Balance Complete meal replacement in water or rice, soy, almond milk (optional). Take NingXia Red with each meal along with a glass of water. Small veggie, fruit and nut snacks between meals. Complete instructions on the program accompany the package.

We each took a Longevity capsule once a day and I started using the Omega 3s - approx. 3 per day. I continued taking my usual Super B and SuperCal tablets with the program. We also drank LOTS OF WATER with the meals and inbetween. VERY IMPORTANT!!

Les worked his regular running schedule, which was about 25 miles that week including 2 hard workouts, a tempo run and an interval workout. I did my regular walking/weight training routine. We never got hungry and finished the week feeling great, without craving anything. Based on weighing himself Monday, at the start, and Saturday at the end, Les lost 9 pounds. As of this morning, October 19, I've lost 7 pounds.

Things we noticed: good energy/not tired, slept very well, increased elimination, no cravings!

We each continue to use the Balance Complete with Power Meal in the morning and many days, mix up a Balance Complete shake for lunch, too, adding blueberries, banana, peaches - whatever we have on hand.

This cleansing program is designed to cleanse and detox the body, give the organs a rest from dealing with an overabundance of food and toxins, balance blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, provide core nutritional support and increase life span by 50%. It is recommended that we do the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse once a quarter.

You can get more information on the individual products on the website or contact us and we'll send you the new product sheets we received at the convention. My plan is to do this program the first week of each month (5 days) until January.

Here's to health,
