You can choose to use Aloe Vera Capsules instead of the teas.
The use of Aloe Vera can be traced all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. The glamorous Cleopatra regarded Aloe Vera as her beauty secret. Aloe was held in such reverence in Egypt that it was considered to be the “Plant of Immortality.” Drawings of the Aloe plant have even been found inscribed in the tombs of pharaohs.
There are several variations of the Aloe plant, but only one variety has a legendary medicinal reputation dating back thousands of years: the Aloe Vera. Vera, that means true in Latin, was added to the appellation of this particular specimen in order to distinguish its primacy among the Aloe plants.
One of nature’s time-tested healing substances, Aloe Vera helps the body cleanse itself and provides minerals, vitamins, enzymes, glycoproteins, essential oils, and amino acids to support the body’s defense, gastrointestinal, and urinary systems.(1)

The Aloe Vera plant has a long history of use for its healing properties. The plants large bladelike leaves are the source of the Aloe gel. The inner chamber of the Aloe Vera leaf is made up of the clear pulp, which resembles slightly melted lemon Jell-O. The pulp is believed to contain the wound-healing agents. The Russians call these “biogenic stimulators”. They now have developed a process by where they can use the leaf of the plant, which is also the strongest part of the plant, for nutrients. Aloe has a natural antidotal effect, neutralizing body toxins thus, reducing joint pain caused by tissue toxicity. Aloe Vera has been used widely in Holistic medicine in the amelioration of immune system dysfunction. The effect is to stabilize the life force; thereby, contributing to balancing the blood. It is believed to boost the immune system by balancing the pH of the blood and also increases digestion and absorption. As early as 1935, it was recommended to use Aloe Vera juice in treating certain types of burns because of its well-known properties in soothing sun-damaged skin.
Aloe Vera has properties for promoting the removal of dead skin and stimulating the normal growth of living cells. During the healing process, it can soothe the skin and may promote healing. Aloe Vera is excellent for absorbing toxins and promoting growth of friendly “good” colon bacteria, which is required for good health and is thus often used in colon cleansing products.
We also know that our digestive systems are under constant attack from foods, chemicals and parasites that actually destroy our natural ‘friendly’ bacteria — Intestinal Flora. We recommend that along with the Clearstart Pack you consider using Probionics to help repopulate the Digestive System with this life giving and necessary Flora.
Probiotic blend (25 billion CFU)[Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. casei, Bifidobacterium longum, B. bifidum] and rice maltodextrin. Proper intestinal flora balance is essential for efficient digestion and essential for effective digestion and overall health. Intestinal floras are destroyed by antibiotic medications and content in our food or water. Improper flora balance will allow for overgrowth of candida in our digestive tract and other parts of our body and contribute to auto-intoxication and degenerative diseases such as arthritis, allergies, skin conditions, lethargy, mental fog, indigestion, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, decreased immune function, poor nutrient absorption, poor enzyme function, susceptibility to viral and bacterial infections and abdominal pain, when conditions like colitis and crohns are present, balanced intestinal flora is absent. Flora should be replenished at the end of any detox or cleansing program and periodically throughout the year.

This product is designed to cleanse and nourish our liver. Our liver is the largest filter in the body and performs over 500 functions in our body. It can become overloaded with chemicals, toxins and be impaired by fatty deposits. It is essential to life itself and if it is impaired by disease such as hepatitis, jaundice, mononucleosis, or damage from drugs or alcohol it cannot effectively detox itself and we will begin to experience all kinds of illnesses. It is also where the body takes components, enzymes, hormones etc and synthesizes or converts them to another factor then sends them to other organs or areas in the body to help maintain or regenerate normal cellular function and health. One of the most overlooked organs in our bodies is the liver and often many degenerative conditions would be avoided if we had optimally functioning livers.
