reduce cramping. You could also add a peppermint
tea bag to your herbal laxative, this really helps!

fresh, what can I do?

change by eliminating toxins. Your tongue will start
clearing and will turn a healthy pink as your cleansing
progresses. Mint tea may be used occasionally
during the diet. The chlorophyll in mint tea helps as a
purifier, neutralizing mouth and body odors that are
released during the cleansing period.
