Cleansing and fasting have been a part of human life throughout history. Often an integral part of many spiritual and cultural practices, fasting is more rigorous and demands more of the body. Yet people keep on doing it and not necessarily because they enjoy it! They do it because of its tremendous benefits that cannot be received by any other method.
At Arise & Shine, we believe that in our modern society, cleansing is the best way to start on the path of feeling stronger, lighter, healthier, and clearer. It can help you feel more energetic and promote levels of endurance that aid you in dealing with our often stressful and fast-paced lives.
While cleansing with one of our Cleanse 28 or Cleanse 14 programs you should never feel hungry or weak, yet both are common complaints when fasting. Be sure to listen to your intuition when considering a Cleanse; what does it say to you? If it is a resounding, Yes! then please consider trying either Cleanse 28 or Cleanse 14 for yourself. Find out why our customers have been coming back for more and telling their friends and family about their own cleansing experiences for over 30 years.
An Arise & Shine Cleanse is not a fast or liquid diet. Although there are no solid meals on the Master Phase of Cleanse 28, you will be taking herbs, cleansing Bentonite and Psyllium shakes, and probiotics as well as drinking lots of purified water. It is very important to nourish your body with adequate amounts of food and if possible fresh raw juices during the phases leading up to the Master Phase.
While the recommended foods (see the Cleanse Guide or About Cleansing) may be very different from your current diet, it is exceedingly important that for optimum results you follow our guidelines and eat alkaline forming foods while cleansing. There are recipes in the Resource section that you may enjoy during your Cleanse and after.
Before you decide if (our Cleanse 28 is right for you please read About Cleansing and the complete instructions in our downloadable Cleanse Guide. If you don’t feel you are ready to commit to a 28-day Cleanse, please consider Cleanse 14, our 14-day Cleanse also described in the Cleanse Guide.

One of the most frequent stories is about the controversial “mucoid plaque” and how much they “got out.”
What is Mucoid Plaque?
Mucoid plaque can be described as a gel-like, viscous and slimy mucus that forms as a layer or layers covering the inner lining of various hollow organs, especially the organs of the alimentary canal. It appears to develop in the presence of acids which trigger the secretion of mucus as protection. Stress and eating too many acid-forming foods diminish electrolytes and allow acids to trigger the mucus we call mucoid plaque. This plaque may hold toxins and harbor microscopic pathogens. Plaque may also interfere with adsorption, thereby preventing vital nutrients from serving the body's needs. This cleanse is famous for the removal of mucoid plaque. It is commonly reported that when removed, people notice significant improvements in their well-being. ~
Generally mucoid plaque is 1/64th to 1/4th inch thick, but is occasionally thicker. Not everyone has mucoid plaque, reports of not removing any have been extremely rare.
Some who ingest large amounts of table salt have trouble removing plaque.
Mucoid plaque can be a variety of colors: white, yellow, gray, greenish, tan, light or dark brown, black, most commonly blackish green.
Mucoid plaque can range from stiff and hard to soft and more flexible. For some people the herbs or the addition of cayenne even liquefy the plaque and they release globs of mucus.
Mucoid plaque is often shiny or smooth; some pieces may look like rope, showing striations, smoothness, overlaps, and/or creases.
Sections of plaque as large as 2-4 feet long or more are not entirely uncommon, however most cleansers can expect plaque to come out in sections on average of 6-18 inches.
