FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Is it true that internal cleansing kills beneficial flora (“friendly bacteria”) in our digestive system?
A: Internal Sweep contains some Acidophilus, which helps to replenish the "friendly bacteria" (microflora) which are vital to our digestive health, immune health, and our overall well-being. Internal Sweep also contains Fructo-Oligosaccharide or F.O.S. (chicory root extract) which is food for the "friendly bacteria”.
However, during and after a thorough cleansing we recommend using our Gut Mate® probiotics to help your body build a healthy amount of friendly bacteria in the intestines much quicker. Probiotics are opposite of antibiotics and other drugs which destroy your friendly bacteria.
We have hundreds of billions of friendly bacteria in our colon but many things such as medications, pollution, toxins, additives, chlorinated tap water (chlorine is added to water to kill bacteria - imagine what it does to our friendly bacteria!), excessive consumption of sugar or refined flours, and other factors kill this ultra important first line defense which our bodies have.
Available exclusively from our company, Gut Mate® probiotics can be used during or after the cleanse to rapidly help your microflora to flourish. Many use Gut Mate® every morning to make sure the friendly bacteria is always replenished as we lose so much of it every single day due to pollution, environmental & food toxins etc. Gut Mate® contains 20 different probiotic strains of friendly bacteria and has 7 BILLION CFU per micro pearl.
Q: Will I see parasites in my stool?
A: A lot of our customers reported observing visible parasites. They even sent us pictures of them, but they are too graphic to post them online. The visible ones can be up to several feet in length, but you don’t have to worry about them – they come out quite “limp” (some people visualize parasites attacking them like snakes when they come out, but nothing can be further from the truth – visible parasites are really not that “lively”).
Q: What about parasites in my pets & how to prevent parasites from coming back to me if my pets have them?
A: Humans frequently pick up parasites from their dogs and cats. When you cleanse yourself and to help you avoid a possible re-infestation, you should simultaneously address that problem in your dog or cat. Furthermore, you should wash your hands and make sure your children wash their hands after handling pets. You may give ParaNix™ to pets by opening a capsule and sprinkling its contents on a your pet’s food throughout the day. The daily dose for animals can be calculated based on their weight using the following formula: assume a full adult dose (of 5 capsules) based on 120-140lb. Therefore, if your dog weighs 30 lb., then it would need 1capsule per day with meals (spread throughout the day).
Q: Is there anything else I should do to prevent a re-infestation?
A: You should follow, and make your children follow, good basic hygiene by always washing their hands with soap and hot water after using the bathroom and just before eating. Use only clean filtered water; otherwise you risk getting re-infected with cryptosporidium or Giardia parasites (chlorination or carbon filters can’t really handle this problem very well) which are commonly found in the municipal water supply in many cities
Q: Do I need to follow a specific kind of a diet while on the program?
A: Although we are strong proponents of a plant based diet, no, you do not need to adhere to any special diet. Please stay hydrated with 8 to 10 glasses of water, regardless of whether you are on this program or not. During the cleanse, try to avoid sugar and decrease the intake of foods that contain a lot of sugar. Additionally, it is important to take an adequate amount of essential fatty acids, the good fats, like flax seed oil, evening primrose oil, borage oil, etc. You can get your Omega 369 here.

Q: When should I repeat the program or use any of its components?
A: As far as the whole program is concerned, every 12 months is a good idea. However, a lot of our customers use Internal Sweep along with Gut Mate Probiotics after they complete the cleanse.
Q: Can I take medications while I cleanse?
A: Please check the warning on the label of the medication for specific contraindications. If you are taking any other medications and are unsure, the best course of action is to consult your pharmacist or registered health care practitioner before starting any herbal cleansing program.
