I love Dr. Ho’s Digestive Detox. I immediately felt better. I had more energy, slept better and was more alert. I lost 6 lbs in the first 2 weeks and will continue to use this product every 3 months! Thank you!
I used Digestive Detox Detoxifying Intestinal Cleansing System 2 times. I found I feel more energy and bowel regularity! Provides better sleep and it helps to lose some weight (flatter stomach). Thanks.
Dear Dr Ho,
Using the Digestive Detox digestive cleanse has been THE most significant positive action I’ve ever taken to improve my overall health and sense of well being! Quite frankly I continue to be amazed at the results I’ve experienced to date! As a fit middle aged woman who eats a varied and mainly vegan (at least 50% raw), exercises daily and consumes a myriad of supplements, I was unsure that your product could help me. I was wrong! And now I’m your biggest advertisement, telling everyone I know about the Digestive Detox and urging them to use it too! Some background information (graphic at times!) and the spectacular results I’ve experienced...
In the last few years I’ve had quite a bit of bloating after eating and felt full after the smallest amounts of food. Taking a digestive enzyme preparation eased this symptom somewhat, but not entirely. Also my lower belly seemed to be getting larger by the year, despite no weight gain. I attributed this to the shifting hormones of middle age yet was secretly appalled that I often were regular and easy ( 1 or 2 times daily) but for over a decade I had been passing several golf ball sized pieces, rather than the "log" shape I see my children pass! Too, I often had acne outbreaks, unhelped by any natural or prescription medicines (I wrote this off to fluctuating hormones too as it was worse when I didn’t ovulate and was going through a phase of estrogen dominance). Again, vitex and progesterone cream helped somewhat but did not relieve the problem. And I was beginning to experience "urge incontinence", an embarrassing thing for a woman not yet 50! My doctor reassured me that all my organs were where they should be-nothing was slack or hanging down, and advised me to continue doing kegel exercises. Overall, I felt like my liver was being overworked with all the supplements I was taking but not absorbing well and that my careful eating habits and lifestyle habits weren’t helping to the degree they should be given the effort I expended on them! And, over the years I have done several whole body cleanses and daily consume different "fiber" products in my diet. I followed your 30 day cleanse to the better-it was so simple-the first couple of days nothing much happened, but on day 3 to 7 I passed 3-5 extremely large, soft, log-shaped pieces daily! I knew that wasn’t consuming enough food to create this so I had to be removing old fecal matter! I was surprised and amazed! And I felt great! For the remainder of the 30 days I passed about one large piece daily. At the end of 30 days I had lost the large "dinner roll" shaped lump in my left lower quadrant of my abdomen that I have had for years-sometimes it was larger, sometimes smaller, but it was always there, and at every annual checkup my Dr. would find it and send me for ultrasounds which always came back negative for any tumors or growths. Clearly, it was impacted fecal matter! Yuck! Even though I didn’t lose weight I did lose 3-4 inches off my lower abdomen and my clothes fit much better and I just don’t have "fat days" anymore! Even my eyes have regained their vibrant golden hazel colour instead of the musky brown I’ve seen for many many years. (I’m sure an iridologist would have found digestive stagnation...) Even my skin is looking better-better colour, clarity and I seem to have lost the bulk of the "ashiness" and palor I have come to accept as a consequence of aging. I am sure that I am digesting my food more efficiently and that my supplements are being more properly absorbed. I don’t suffer from bloating after meals and have lost the occasional cravings I had fro sourdough white bread and sweet candy! I also feel like eating in the morning because I’m hungry-usually I wake up feeling full and bloated and am not interested in eating until much later in the day.
But the best and most significant (as if the above wasn’t enough!) result I’ve experienced is that my incontinence has all but disappeared! I am back rebounding daily (gave it up due to the severe leaking)! It makes perfect sense that an overloaded colon would put pressure on my bladder. Why don’t doctors tell people to clean out their colon as a first line remedy for incontinence problems?? I can’t believe I’ve been suffering for years and this 30 day colon cleanse has removed 95% of this problem!
In all, this has been an amazing journey for me. I am telling everyone to get on the program. If it did so much for me I can only imagine the huge benefits for someone consuming a S.A.D! I have just ordered 2 more cleanses to share with family members and plan on doing it again in a couple of months myself.
Thank you also for bringing your products to TV. I enjoy watching all your shows and was delighted to see both you and Vincent on this past weekend. I also picked up several of your products, including the meal replacement and essential multi vitamins. As I deplete my current stock of the other nutrients I consume I will purchase those items from you as well. As a woman who has studied health, nutrition and fitness for over 2 decades (but who works, unsatisfactorily, in the financial field) I have had no objections to any of the information you share with your customers on T.V. or in your print material. Thank you so much for bringing this information to a wide audience. Over the years my views on nutrition has had people looking at me as though I had 3 heads, but the more this information this the mainstream media, the more people are listening with interest to what I have to say and how I choose to live! Thank you for that! I would love to be involved, on any level, with your company. I am such a believer in your philosophy and your products I know I would be an asset, in any capacity. And you must be experiencing massive growth due to your new products and association with T.V. Although I am trained in the financial/accounting field my first love is the study of superior health and well being through natural methods. I am so very saddened by the presence of "big pharma" in the lives of my peers, and by the current ridiculous "high protein" craze so many of my peers are embracing!
Anyways, I could write forever on this subject but I do hope you’ll contact me should I be able to help your spread your message in any capacity. Truly, I’d sweep the floors to get my foot in the door! After such amazing results with your products (my teenage son who stocks shelves part time at a local grocery store uses your Neck Comforter for relief of neck strain all the time!) I want to be a part of your enterprise! Thank you so much. So very much. Yours truly,

Digestive Detox System
Our bodies are victim to stress, pollution, toxins and unhealthy diets. Most people are too busy to look after themselves properly. Juggling time between work, travel and family leaves little time to prepare and eat healthy all the time. Consumption of fast food, refined carbohydrates, packaged foods, red meat, alcohol, soft drinks, junk food, deep fried foods, food containing high level of sugar, salt and saturated oils. Certain medications, stress, rushing around, poor bowel habits can impact your overall good health and well-being.
With the environmental toxins in the food, water, air and in our homes, our body's detoxification process needs help to detoxify the toxins we encounter everyday. We shower and bath our outer body daily, we brush our teeth daily, we change the oil and filter in our car regularly, and we clean our car and our home daily. Think what your dirty dishes would look like in a few days if you do not clean them after a meal. Think about what you are putting into your body everyday, your digestive system is working very hard digesting, absorbing and eliminating. That is why it is important to support your body's natural detoxification process.
Keeping your intestines and colon clean is one of the most important daily routines for promoting digestive wellness and maintaining health; it’s your healthy choice. Cleansing and detoxifying your body, along with using digestive remedies helps promote regularity. Regular bowel movements help eliminate accumulated toxins and waste that may be extremely harmful to our bodies. Learn how Dr. Ho's can help improve digestive health with detox systems.
Listed below are facts about the toxins that surround us.
"One in 14 men is expected to develop colorectal cancer during his lifetime and one in 27 will die from it. One in 16 women is expected to develop colorectal cancer during her lifetime and one in 31 will die from it. Overall, colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in Canada."1
The Environmental Protection Agency reports that in 2002, almost 4.79 billion pounds of toxins were released into the atmosphere from 24,379 U.S. facilities, not including releases from metal mining. Within these pollutants, 72 million pounds were identified as carcinogens.
"95% of chemicals used in fragrances are synthetic compounds derived from petroleum, including many toxins and sensitizers that are capable of causing cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders and allergic reactions."2
"Over 20 studies show pesticides, used inside and outside homes or schools, on lawns or playgrounds, can cause leukemia, brain tumors and lymphomas."3
An analysis of over 22 million tap water quality tests across the U.S. conducted by the Environmental Working Group found in excess of 300 contaminants in water served to the public. Of those pollutants, they found:
- 83 agricultural pollutants (including pesticides and chemicals used in fertilizers)
- 59 contaminants linked to wastewater treatment
- 166 industrial chemicals from consumer products and factory waste
- 52 linked to cancer
- 41 linked to reproductive toxicity
- 36 linked to development toxicity
- 16 linked to immune system damage
In 2004, the Environmental Protection Agency reported that due to mercury exposure, 1 in 6 American women of child-bearing age has blood mercury levels significant enough to cause brain damage to a fetus. Each year, approximately 630,000 children are thus at risk of brain damage due to mercury exposure.
"Up to 5000 different chemicals are used in various combinations in scented products, and 84% of these have had little or no human toxicology testing."2
Known adverse health affects of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in products such as aerosol sprays, cosmetics, and cleansers include eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual distortions, impaired memory, depression, kidney problems, liver damage, nausea, loss of coordination, migraines, wheezing, asthma and nervous system damage.4

The Importance of Your Digestive System
Our digestive system begins working from the instant we put food into our mouth and ends when we have a bowel movement. The digestive system breaks down the food we eat, absorbs nutrients and fluids into our body, and then excretes unwanted waste material to prevent toxic build up. The ability to excrete waste every day is just as important as the ability to absorb nutrients. Without daily bowel movements, our digestive system becomes congested with toxic fecal matter that may result in occasional gas, bloating, bad breath, constipation and more. These are symptoms of a poor digestive system that may require detoxification for optimal digestive health. After detoxification, use Dr. Ho's digestive supplements to keep your digestive system healthy.
Why Your Digestive System May Not Function Optimally
There are numerous reasons why our digestive system may not work as optimally as it could. The most common reasons are poor diet, stress, and insufficient water intake.
Poor diet is by far the number one reason why people experience occasional Constipation, Indigestion, Heartburn, and Bloating. The average modern day diet does not have sufficient amounts of fruits, green leafy vegetables and fiber. Most modern diets contain too much refined carbohydrates as well as refined and processed foods. The body has an extremely difficult time breaking down and digesting foods with a high concentration of starch such as fast food, pizza, bread, cereal, pasta and processed potatoes. When food is not properly digested, it can be more difficult to eliminate. Hardened stool makes it extremely difficult for the intestines to contract which can cause occasional constipation and/or diarrhea.
A poor diet can lead to food not digesting properly and creating occasional constipation. If you are not experiencing at least one bowel movement a day there is a good chance that you are not getting enough fiber in your diet. It may also cause occasional gas and bloating which can leave you experiencing discomfort and lack of energy.
To improve the health of your digestive system and your overall health, it is essential to consume a sufficient amount of daily fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, water and fiber to help with cleansing the digestive system and to improve the frequency and quality of your bowel movements. In addition to improving your diet, using DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM digestive detoxification and cleansing system will greatly help to promote a healthier digestive system and an improvement with your overall health.
Many changes occur when the body is under a state of stress. Heart rate is increased, muscles are tensed and the digestive system works less efficiently. During times of stress the body enters a "Flight or Fight" stage. The body diverts energy away from the digestive areas during stress.
With modern lifestyle, people are always rushing around and often avoiding nature’S call for a bowel movement. Most people do not make a habit of training themselves to having daily regular bowel movements. These poor bowel habits can lead to occasional constipation.
The Sereni-TeaTM in the DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system contains Chamomile and 10 other natural herbs which are outstanding natural supplements. Find mind and body relaxation with Dr. Ho's Sereni-Tea. Lack of Water Intake
"In the human body, water is essentially the most crucial element in maintaining health and vitality." The human body requires adequate hydration for the bodies’ biochemical reactions to function at an optimal level. Without about 8 - 10 glasses of water a day, your body cannot digest food properly, resulting in poor absorption of nutrients, poor breakdown of foods and an accumulation of built up fecal matter. This build up of fecal matter prevents regular bowel movements, and increases the amount of toxins stored in your system. Dehydration also slows down your metabolism, and it can lead to sugar cravings and fatigue. By drinking the appropriate amount of water, your body can lubricate the digestive tract, initiate dissolvability, and effectively cleanse and flush the digestive system leading to a healthier, more energetic body. Remember, without water, your body cannot cleanse itself.
