When I started my health journey, I suffered from Colitis, PCOS, Heavy Metal Toxicity, Bloat, IBS, Acne, and more. I didn’t realize the main culprit of my health issues all stemmed from one issue: TOXINS! I was dumbfounded. How could the government, the Big Food companies, and even my parents allow such toxins in my environmental and food consumption and what could I do to clear these toxins from my body? The answer was a Detox Cleanse.
My health transformation journey took me down a rabbit hole of finding where these toxins were coming from, why things have become so much worse in the recent years and led me to creating a range of detox cleanses designed to target various health issues and to eliminate toxins.
Why you Need to Eliminate Toxins from your Body
There are numerous toxic threats to human health, many of which can be found in our environment, lifestyle choices, and daily habits. These threats have exponentially increased and made it mandatory to detox and cleanse the body regularly.
Some of the most significant toxic threats include:
- Air pollution: Poor air quality caused by emissions from vehicles, industrial processes, and burning of fossil fuels can lead to respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, and other health issues.
- Water contamination: Contaminated water sources can expose individuals to harmful chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, and pathogens, leading to waterborne diseases and long-term health problems.
- Pesticides and chemicals: Exposure to pesticides and synthetic chemicals, often found in food, personal care products, and household items, can be harmful to human health and may have long-term effects.
- Heavy metals: Heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium can accumulate in the body over time, causing various health issues, including neurological damage, kidney problems, and developmental disorders.
- Industrial chemicals and toxins: Exposure to industrial chemicals and toxins, such as asbestos, PCBs, and dioxins, can have severe health consequences, including cancer and other chronic illnesses.
- Tobacco and smoking: Smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke increase the risk of various diseases, including lung cancer, heart disease, and respiratory conditions. Vaping is just as bad for the body as smoking tobacco.
- Processed foods: Consuming diets high in processed foods, added sugars, and unhealthy fats can contribute to high uric acid, fatty liver, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions.
- Alcohol and substance abuse: Excessive alcohol consumption and substance abuse can lead to addiction, liver damage, mental health issues, and social problems.
- Electromagnetic radiation (EMFs): While the evidence is inconclusive, some studies suggest that long-term exposure to electromagnetic radiation from cell phones, Wi-Fi, and other electronic devices may have health implications.
- Microplastics: Microplastics have become a pervasive environmental pollutant, and their potential health impacts, especially when ingested through food and water, are still being studied.
Symptoms of Toxicity
Due to the significant increase in toxins over the last 10 years, our bodies hit a “tipping point” where they can’t filter toxins effectively, which leads to toxic overload and then shows up as a myriad of symptoms. These symptoms include:
- Lethargy and fatigue: As your detoxification pathways get clogged, especially in the liver, metabolism slows down as the thyroid hormones can’t convert into active hormones, hormonal imbalance will ensue and proteins and fats won’t be effectively converted into energy.
- Unexplained weight gain: Your liver is where fat burning occurs and where your thyroid hormones are converted into active metabolic hormones. As your liver is becoming clogged over the years from toxins, the body’s ability to burn fat and break down protein becomes inefficient and your metabolism, fat oxidation, and thyroid health deteriorate. You may not get the same results you did ten years ago from eating the same foods.
- Headaches and brain fog: A symptom of toxicity is systemic inflammation, including inflammation in the brain and the brain’s inability to clear toxins including fluoride from the pineal gland.
- Skin rashes, eczema, and acne: The skin is the largest detoxifying organ, and the body resorts to pushing toxins out through the skin. So, as the burden of toxins becomes too much for your liver to process and it tries to expel the toxins out through the skin, skin rashes will appear.
- Water retention: If the kidneys are overburdened with toxins, they will become inflamed and unable to efficiently clear the fluids out of the body. This will lead to edema.
- Digestion, constipation, bloating, nausea: If the liver and gallbladder are backed up from toxicity, fat-burning halts, and digestion slows down; this can lead to nausea, bloat, gas, and constipation. This could be from a clogged gallbladder that provides the bile to break down fats. If the bile becomes sluggish, it won’t break down the fats, leading to nausea and digestive issues.
- Elevated cholesterol: Cholesterol is being mobilized through the bloodstream as your detox pathways become opened. Increased processed food consumption, increased exposure to glyphosate and GMOs, and even the toxicity from Spike Protein are causing higher levels of cholesterol.
- Anger, depression, irritability or anxiety: Toxic overload in the liver can lead to anger, frustration, and negative mood.
- Insomnia: Blood sugar dysregulation can be caused by toxicity and cause insomnia. If you wake up between 2-4 am, that is a sign your liver is backed up and you might have insulin resistance.
The Top 7 Reasons to Do a Detox Cleanse
A Detox Cleanse is a short-term program to help rid your body of excess waste, toxins, and foreign pathogens that are inhibiting your body from being in a state of optimal health.
Although detoxing from environmental and dietary toxins is the main goal of a Detox Cleanse, below are my top 7 reasons to do a professional Detox Cleanse.
1. ELIMINATION OF TOXINS
Detox Cleanse programs help the body eliminate accumulated toxins, such as pollutants, heavy metals, and certain chemicals. These toxins can impede the body from functioning at optimal levels. Eliminating these toxins with a Detox Cleanse can support improving overall health.
2. IMPROVED DIGESTION & GUT HEALTH
Many people today suffer from digestive issues, and because of this, many detox programs focus on promoting healthy gut function, including dietary changes that may support digestion, and reduce bloat and discomfort. The gut is your second brain. If your gut is not functioning optimally, neither is your health. A Detox Cleanse can help rid the gut of bad bacteria, flourish the gut with good, healthy flora, repair the gut microbiome, reset gut health and aid in significantly improved digestion and nutrient absorption.
3. WEIGHT LOSS
Excess weight and obesity have a negative impact on your health. Obesity places strain on our organs and increases the risk of disease. A Detox Cleanse can help shift those pounds and kickstart your weight loss journey the right way.
4. BOOSTING ENERGY LEVELS
Toxins cause backed-up detox pathways which then lead to sluggish metabolisms and low energy. By removing the toxins through a Detox Cleanse, energy levels may improve significantly.
5. ENHANCED MENTAL CLARITY
Toxins in the brain can lead to brain fog, concentration issues, and even headaches. Removing the toxins with a Detox Cleanse may help clear “brain fog” and improve mental focus and concentration.
6. ENCOURAGING HEALTHIER HABITS
Engaging in a Detox Cleanse can encourage you to adopt healthier eating patterns, exercise routines, and sleep habits, leading to improved overall health.
7. BREAKING UNHEALTHY FOOD ADDICTIONS
Detox Cleanses can help break an addiction to eating unhealthy foods and reset your taste buds. No longer crave processed foods, alcohol, and sugar. Your body and brain will automatically guide you to healthier choices because the reward is feeling great!
Top Accelerated Health Cleanses
I have created multiple cleanses to not only achieve all of the above-mentioned health goals but also to do this while feeling great from day one!
The supplements included in my cleanses work synergistically to effectively detox from heavy metals, radiation, environmental toxins, and food toxins, while suppressing appetite for sugar and carbs, and eliminating detox “flu-like” symptoms.
Below is a detailed list outlining the benefits of each Detox & Cleanse.
Ascent Diet Cleanse
The Ascent Diet Cleanse is my most comprehensive cleanse that helps detox, reset and rebuild your immune system, your metabolism and all functions of the body. This is a combination of the Accelerated Keto Detox Cleanse and the Liver Flush Cleanse.

Accelerated Candida Cleanse
The Accelerated Candida Cleanse is designed to not only kill off the candida effectively but also help negate the “die off” symptoms many people experience.
C.albicans (Candida) is the most common fungal pathogen that causes Candida overgrowth and can colonize the skin and mucosal surfaces of most healthy individuals.
The Accelerated Candida Cleanse protocol supports a healthy fungal balance in the gut by promoting the proliferation of good bacteria that compete with C.albicans, while limiting C. albicans in the gut.
Accelerated Parasite Cleanse
The Accelerated Parasite Cleanse helps not only purge parasites out of the system, but also helps boost the immune system, aids in alleviating digestive issues, supports improved mental and physical energy, and enhances your overall wellbeing.
- Supports the elimination of chronic infestations of intestinal parasites

- Supports the immune system in devitalizing all foreign pathogens
Accelerated Kidney Stone Cleanse
The synergy between the supplements in the Accelerated Kidney Stone Cleanse help to aid in the natural support of kidney stones, urinary tract or kidney infections, and all urogenital infections.
This cleanse has a diuretic effect, helps to reduce inflammation, boosts the immune system and helps with eliminating oxalates from the body. The supplements may also help boost thyroid function, alleviate joint pain, reduce the symptoms of inflammation from arthritis and alleviate gout. The effects are enhanced with Accelerated Keto and a low oxalate and low carb diet.
The Accelerated Kidney Stone Cleanse may help to:
- Dissolve urinary and kidney stones
- Promote blood circulation
- Alleviate edema and water retention
- Improve thyroid health and metabolism
- Reduce symptoms of gout
- Improve joint pain and arthritis
- Help with the urinary tract, bladder, and kidney infections when Man Yue Mei Clearing™ is added to the cleanse.
The supplements in the colon cleanse are designed to get you pooping and cleanse the colon. The colon plays a crucial role in expelling waste and eliminating toxins from the body. When constipation and a congested colon occur, toxins can accumulate, reabsorb into the bloodstream, and even give rise to a dense mucoid plaque adhering to the intestinal walls.
This “mucoid plaque” consists of a combination of mucus and other substances that accumulate within the intestines and colon. It forms a thick, rubbery layer that has the potential to be harmful and impedes the absorption of nutrients, leading to a range of health concerns.
It is imperative to address and remove this buildup, aiming for regularity with 2-3 daily bowel movements.
Following the Accelerated Colon Cleanse detox protocol will bring about several benefits, including:
- Gentle elimination of toxins from your body
- Encouragement of regular bowel movements
- Enhancement of your digestive and immune systems
- Boost in energy levels
- Relief from bloating and intestinal discomfort
- Support for your weight loss objectives
