Never before in our history have we been exposed to so many poisonous substances. These include the heavy metals mercury, aluminum, copper, lead, nickel and cadmium; air pollution; pharmaceuticals; nanotechnology chemicals sprayed on almost everything manufactured; pesticides, herbicides and fungicides; plastics; industrial cleaners; petroleum; dioxins in our oceans; and thousands of new chemicals introduced into our environment every year. These poisons saturate our water reservoirs and fall down from the sky.

Most of us are carrying around toxins that have been with us for almost our whole lives and have burrowed deep inside us. It’s these old poisons that are the most dangerous. Toxic heavy metals, for example, can oxidize over time and kill the cells around them.

Toxins pose multiple threats.  They directly poison your body, damaging your brain, your liver, your central nervous system, and other vital areas. They weaken your immune system, leaving you vulnerable to illness. And worst of all, they attract and feed cancers, viruses, bacteria and other invaders that can instigate a serious health condition. In fact, these toxins are the primary triggers for our current epidemics of cancer and many other illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

As your body cleanses itself of toxins or a viral load, you may find that emotional detox occurs as well. As your cells release the physical toxins, emotional toxins may bubble up. You may feel intense cravings for foods that fed the pathogens or contributed to inflammation in your body. You may grieve for the years you lost to being unwell or angry at the ineffective medical industry that told you your illness was all in your head.

Know that you always have the opportunity to turn things around. And the fact that you are here, in your Valentus back office, reading this blog tells me that you are already looking for health solutions.

At our recent convention in Henderson, Nevada, we were gifted with three very powerful new products to work with. And, while it is very exciting to have new products and we are all anxious to try them, I would like to offer a word of caution here. Understand that the physical body loves you and wants you to be well. And the fact that you have these detoxing tools at your disposal means you are on the right track to wellness. However, while every physical body is made up of the same parts, each person has a unique wellness timeline that they are living; a history of illnesses, stress factors, life experiences and eating habits that dictate the condition of their health. This means that it is pretty much impossible to compare your health with your neighbour’s health. Your physical body’s response to detoxing may be completely different than someone else’s experience. And this is where my word of caution comes in.

It is my humble advice to introduce your physical body to ONE new detox product at a time. Why? Because they all have powerful properties; putting all three of them into your body at the same time may/will cause some discomfort. And because you’ve used them all at the same time, you won’t be able to easily pin down which one needs to be tweaked to fit your individual needs.


Let’s not forget that this IS the same formula as the Optimum coffee, only now with cocoa instead of coffee to make it palatable. The formulator, Kevin Thomas, told us in the Breakout sessions at the Vancouver convention that he could not make this formula into a tea because the tea flavours were not strong enough to cover up the taste of the other ingredients. What a great idea to make it into a cocoa for non-coffee drinkers. However, putting a scoop of Optimum cocoa into your Optimum coffee is like drinking a double dose of the coffee. Not many people can handle a double dose. You can certainly sprinkle a bit of cocoa into your coffee, but keep in mind…it’s a double dose. Use wisely.


This supplement is causing much activity to happen throughout your physical body. The AM is helping you to be more alert, to enhance energy, preventing carbs from entering the body, burning up carbs that are already in the body, reducing cravings, and more.

The PM reduces pain and inflammation while you sleep, promotes melatonin which aids in better sleep, helps to maintain healthy blood pressure and support cardiovascular health, and much more. Both of these unique formulations are causing a different level of activity in your physical body.


This formula is power-packed with healing and cleansing ingredients. It helps to control acid dependent health conditions, allowing sustainable alkalization in the body. This is huge, as most of us are too acidic inside our gut (Fact: dis-ease cannot grow in an alkaline environment). It delivers bioavailable plant minerals to nourish the body, basically feeding the 71 trillion cells that make up our tissues and organs. And it helps to “clean house” and detoxify the entire body from head to toe. That alone is going to stir things up!

Now, imagine introducing ALL of these activities into a body that is overweight and has many symptoms of dis-ease. There could be some serious discomfort experienced and, let’s be honest, people don’t do well with discomfort. When discomfort happens, they will quit consuming the product and be very reluctant to try it again.

Start with ONE product at a time, especially the 24/7 and MORE Detox. Start with half the recommended dosage. Use it for at least one or two weeks and really LISTEN to the signals your body is sending you. Then double the dosage and LISTEN again. If you aren’t experiencing much discomfort, great! Move on and introduce the next product and repeat the same way, slowly introducing it and listening. If you do experience discomfort, continue with that one product until you feel that your body has adjusted and the discomfort subsides.

To prepare the physical body to “clean house”, it’s important to understand that the 5 elimination organs will be engaged. Those 5 organs are your:

  •  Lymphatic System
  • Intestines
  • Kidneys
  • Lungs
  • Skin

As the body detoxes, it will need to “take out the garbage” and will use these 5 organs to do so. Drinking lots of water is IMPERATIVE for this to happen efficiently. You may experience constipation/diarrhea, frequent urination and smelly urine, skin rashes, develop a cough with no fever present, excess mucous being eliminated, body aches and pains, headaches. Keep in mind, every person’s detoxing will be different, as each person has their own unique wellness timeline.

Understand that you are not sick. Let the body take out the garbage so that it can begin to function from a place of wellness rather than dis-ease. Do not freak out and run to the doctor or pharmacist unless you are experiencing a fever. When you detoxify, the immune system is not fully engaged in fighting an invader, therefore no corresponding fever is present. Stop and truly LISTEN to what your body is signaling you. Detoxing can last for 2 days, 2 weeks or 2 months. It truly depends on the condition of each person’s own physical body. Do not compare your detox symptoms to anyone else’s. Own it, help your body through it and experience amazing health when you get to the other side.

Your physical body loves you and wants you to be well. Give it the love and respect it deserves and you will be rewarded with a long, healthy life. What goes into your body must be quality nutrition, lots of water, deep breaths and positive thoughts. To help your liver deal with the detoxing, eliminate dairy, cheese and eggs from your diet, as these foods feed viruses and bacteria inside your body as well as overburden your liver with too much saturated fat. Cut down meat consumption to your evening meal only and eat WAY more fruits and vegetables. And live your best life! We do not have to get sick to die.

Much Love and Light.
