Let's face it, in the western world today, we have become accustomed to a certain lifestyle. We tend to enjoy eating rich and flavorful foods, most of which are fat and sugar-laden (both of which can, in large quantities, play havoc with internal health). We enjoy hamburgers and hot dogs, ice cream and rich desserts, chocolate, coffee and other caffeinated drinks. We often overeat, particularly at Thanksgiving and Christmas, on special occasions, or when we eat out (especially at "All you can eat" buffets). We generally only drink water when we feel thirsty (lack of thirst does not indicate that you don't need water), and although we do it, we are generally bored by exercise. The affluence and abundance in western culture has taught us many bad habits. And, we cannot change them all overnight. The key is to be mindful of what we put in our bodies, and try to make positive incremental changes to our lifestyles. The result for most people who undertake positive changes in diet, exercise and stress management is enhanced well-being, energy, vigor, happiness, increased immunity, a decrease in flu, colds and infections.

The key to optimal health is to balance what we love with what we know to be good for us. Fresh fruits and vegetables; high quality nutritional supplementation including green foods, vitamins, minerals and herbs; plenty of pure water; regular exercise; relaxation and meditation are all important. Periodic detoxification involving nutritionally based internal cleansing programs is also important, as are sweating, fasting, colonics and enemas.

Beginning an Internal Cleansing and Detoxification Program

A high fiber, whole foods diet is important to both cure and prevent waste elimination problems. Even a gentle, gradual change from low fiber, low residue foods helps almost immediately. In fact, graduated change is better than a sudden, drastic about-face, especially when the colon area is painful or inflamed.

There are many cleansing programs that one can take in order to bring the digestive system back to health. As we have discussed, making an effort to restore balance to the colon can have a profound effect on overall health and vitality. Royal BodyCare (now RBC Life Sciences), in partnership with Dr. Albert Zehr, have developed a three-phase, 14-clay program that simplifies colon cleansing and activates elimination. Colo-Vada-Plus is a comprehensive, self-contained, all-in-one system complete with vitamins, minerals, herbs, acidophilus and digestive enzymes that works effectively. As with many RBC Life Sciences products, the inflow of positive testimonials from those who have tried the Colo-Vada-Plus program is almost endless. Many people report incredible results after having been on the 14-day program--more energy and "zip", improved regularity, brighter eyes and better skin, less fatigue, and a greater sense of well-being.


Restoring balance to the digestive system cannot take place overnight. Nor can it be achieved with drugs, surgery or injections. Restoring intestinal flora, reducing harmful bacteria and parasites, and improving regularity takes time and patience. With a little dedication and education, you can restore balance to your colon, sending a rippling effect throughout the body. If you feel that you could benefit from more energy, a greater sense of well-being and improved overall health, you may benefit from a good cleanse.

Colo-Vada-Plus is three-phase program of nutritional supplementation, designed to last for 14 days. For the first 7 days, the preparation phase, herbs and vitamins are taken with the morning and evening meal. The following 4 days is the program phase, a fast, and involves adding 1 pouch of Colo-Vada-Plus powder to water or unsweetened juice, four times a day. No other solid foods, and no other liquids, except unsweetened juices, mild herbal teas or water should be consumed during this period. The last 3 days is the post-program phase. Nutritional supplements are taken twice a day. Easily digestible foods should be eaten for the first two days of this period, returning to proteins like meat and dairy products gradually. At the end of this period, normal dietary and supplement patterns may be resumed.

The Colo-Vada-Plus program's nutritional approach to colon regeneration includes many herbs and vitamins well-known for their powerful health-giving benefits, such as Alfalfa, Black Walnut, Cascara Sagrada, Acidophilus and vitamin C.

Completing the Colo-Vada-Plus program is the best way to start a life-long program of internal health. However, there are many other supplements that one should consider in order to keep the digestive system clean and healthy indefinitely. Enzyme-rich live foods, foods which contain healthy bacteria (like Sauerkraut, Rejuvelac, etc), Spirulina and other green food supplements, should all be considered.
