Okra Pepsin Small Intestine Cleanse
All information in this article is for educational purposes only.
It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition.
It is usually recommended to do this cleanse for 10-14 days. You can still eat during that time, but ideally you would not be drinking any coffee or alcohol, and avoiding wheat, sugar, processed foods and meat as much as possible. The Okra Pepsin cleanse is a great pre-cleanse to a normal 7-day ‘fasting’ program, because it gives the body a chance to loosen a lot of ‘gunk.’ Going from that into 2 enemas a day and 7 days of only juice is a perfect combination, especially for those who have done a 7-day program many times already.
Some people recommend this cleanse to celiacs and anyone suffering from bowel dis-ease, such as irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and colitis. I have personally know a few clients who did this cleanse and mid-way through, they expelled a huge pile a ‘black slimy sludge.’ Can you imagine how something like that could seriously affect the function of the small intestines?
I personally tried this formula, and I used it for 12 days. The main reactions I experienced were: nausea, fatigue, cramping in the abdomen, foul-smelling stool, sweating, excessive heat, itchy skin and low appetite. All of these symptoms came and went over the course of the cleanse. Sadly, I did not release any ‘black slime’. A few days after finishing, I started a 7-day colon detox with juices, psyllium and 2 enemas daily. After the entire cleansing combination, I felt great.Not many people know about the Okra Pepsin, and it’s not an easy herbal formula to find. The best company that still makes it is called Standard Process. In the US, one normally has to order this herb through a naturopath. It is sometimes available for sale on amazon.com. Outside of the US, I was able to find it in one health food shop in Hong Kong.
One final thing to note with the Okra Pepsin is that there is also a cow hormone/extract in the ingredients. For strict vegans, this cleanse would therefore not be recommended. I struggled with the decision to do the cleanse myself, but for the sake of my clients and being able to share my personal experience, I decided to try it once. If you are still wanting to experience the effects of the okra enzymes, you could consider doing a 7-10 day fast taking only green vegetables juices and eating fresh okra and green salads every day.

Can this be taken while pregnant?
I do NOT recommend to do any cleanses or detox while pregnant or breast-feeding. For more on this subject, please see the article I wrote here.
If you have having trouble with digestion or otherwise while pregnant, it’s best to 1) consult your doctor and 2) focus on a whole foods diet to allow the body to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients.
To your health,
For cleansing how many capsules do you recommend daily? Do you recommend it for polyps and if so how would you work with it? Thx!
I’m not a medical doctor and cannot speak about any medical conditions, but this cleanse is designed to work in the small intestine and not in the large intestine. As far as my limited un-medical knowledge goes, most polyps are found in the large intestine, i.e. the colon. Usually I recommend other types of cleansing (and change in diet) to work on inflammatory and lymphatic problems like polyps in the colon. This particular cleanse is especially good for people with absorption problems, leaky gut, etc.
For cleansing, simply follow the instructions on the bottle.
If you want to know if this cleanse is right for you and what (if any) other forms of detox you need for your body, I highly recommend an Iridology consult via Skype. Then, I can outline your detox plan and get you started on the right path for natural healing. Thanks!
To your health,

To your health,
Is okra pepsin better than Aloevera as a detoxifying agent? Is it without any side effects?
Please do reply me….. Thanx
Why does one have to be better? It’s like asking who is your favorite child…there is simply no way to answer! Okra pepsin is great as a small intestine cleanser. Aloe vera is very good for repairing and strengthening the colon wall. Your mindset should not be at looking for 1 perfect or best food because you cannot live a healthy life on any 1 food alone. Look at a rainbow of colors in your foods and actively bring in variety of many healthy foods in your diet. Then you will be creating a healthier YOU!
Was wondering what types of food Veg. Has the most aloe Vera in it.
I’m not sure if I understand your question but ALOE VERA has the most aloe vera in it. You can eat it fresh or in liquid form. Peel away the outer green leaf and eat the inner gel. Small amount only, about 1 tsp to start. Hope that helps!
