The more I’ve learned about health the more I understand that detox is essential to it.
When the modern medical profession tends to scoff about detox, renegade doctors and others have dived deep into this territory…and they tend to be the far healthier group! It makes sense that’s the case when you focus on the right things instead of the wrong ones.
After living in a mold house last year, I came to understand a lot more about the use of binders to draw out mycotoxins, the ridiculously slow process that it is.
Heavy metals are obviously a big part of detox, since they come by way of our food, water, supplements, even the air we breathe. (Not to mention the dentists putting the most toxic metal inside people’s mouths, or the dozens of injections that babies and children receive while growing.)
But those are topics for another time. Detox truly begins in the gut.
It’s where all your food is digested. While there is some truth to “You are what you eat”, it is even more true that “You are what you digest” or assimilate.
Many years back, I was presenting about health at a seminar. One of the attendees questioned the need for any sort of intestinal detox, saying that he had regular bowel movements. While regularity is certainly important, it’s not the whole picture.
Think of your intestines like a hose. You’re eating day in and day out, year after year. Not everything comes out, instead material can and does become caked on the wall. Over and over again, this stuff can exist there for years. This material is called “mucoid plaque”.
The standard medical community wants to deny this exists, but I’ll share a picture with you shortly. Warning! This material is gross. If you don’t want to look at such things, then turn away now.
Over the New Year transition from 2023 to 2024, I did a five-day detox. It had been a while since I’d done anything like this.
Instead of strict fasting, this time I took a different track. It was a liquid fast including fresh juices, non-caffeinated teas and broths.
Having done those longer water and dry fasts I wasn’t really looking forward to the detox. I wouldn’t label a fast as fun. But it was nice in that these liquids made it so that I think I only felt hunger once the entire five days. Much easier!
While I took some different supplements like binders throughout this five-day period, I want to zero in on the most important part. I used the ZenCleanz ONE. As the website puts it:
“The ZenCleanz ONE is our flagship cleanse kit and step 1 of our 5-Element detoxification system to purify the body. ONE is a revolutionary intestinal and colon cleanse that has the power to clear intestinal plaque from the body in ONE DAY. This power-packed fermented enzyme cleanse kit contains only all-natural and organic ingredients, which include our liquid Ambrosia, Intestinal Management powder, and Fiber Crystals. Together, these enzymes help clear the body of long-term intestinal mucoid plaque: the contributory source of all illnesses. ONE discharges old waste, absorbs toxins from the intestinal walls, helps regulate and restore intestinal flora, and improves immunity.”
While I was somewhat skeptical, I had heard about this from a trusted voice, so I decided to give it a shot. At $249, it certainly isn’t cheap either. But as the saying goes you either pay for your health now or you pay later.
Mucoid plaque is not something that is easy to remove. Despite seven day fasts, colonics, enemas and other things over the years I’d never removed this knowingly.
So I did this ZenCleanz in the middle of my five-day detox. Taking it isn’t a picnic either. Nothing tastes bad, in fact the powders and enzymes are quite tasty. It’s just a hassle in that you’re drinking something every half hour on the half hour for approximately eight hours. And spending some time doing intestinal massage during the day as well.
But the results speak for themselves as for what came out. Warning, again, pictures about to show up.
I expected something, but the sheer quantity was much more than I anticipated.
I took pictures of the first mucoid plaque to come out. I was impressed by this alone. You can see the folds from the intestine walls.
Yes, it looks a bit like poop, but the texture is different. And the smell is even worse. It was awful!
As recommended, they said to put a colander in the toilet so you could look at the material. I then moved all of this into the bathtub for more analysis using gloves. (The things we do in name of experimentation! Don’t worry, the bathtub received an extremely thorough cleaning afterwards.)
As the ZenCleanz website has information on, different colors and textures are showing different things regarding your body. This darker material represented older material from the intestines.
But more and more kept coming.
This is how you can tell it is not just poop. That’s quite long in comparison to even the largest poops. It makes sense when you’re clearing things out because you have over somewhere around 15 feet of intestines.
Eventually it looked like all of this.
The material at the end was fattier, damper, and not nearly as old. I didn’t spread that all out like I have the earlier pieces. Again, the sheer quantity of what came out was quite impressive to me.
My normal bodyweight is around 180-185 pounds. At the end of this I was down under 170.
To be fair, I haven’t noticed anything massively different in my health. It already was at a very good place before going into this five-day detox. But my energy, mood and much more has been great coming out of it, as I got back to my regular diet.
Still I know that in this toxic world, even if you’re eating clean, taking herbs and the like, that this is the kind of thing that should be done once in a while to continue to stay healthy and further optimize your health.
Overall, I have to say I am impressed with the ZenCleanz One and will be doing it again.

Beyond the Bowels?
Several people, including in the comments or by email have asked if what came out is nothing more than the product. There’s also questions about colonoscopies not showing anything like the above.
But a friend of mine, Eric Guttmann, had the following thoughts to share:
Hey, just read your ZenCleanz article and will definitely give it a go it in 2024.
Here is something to consider about the mucoid plaque. It took me a while to recognize that the perhaps mucoid plaque is not in the intestines per se but in our tissues.
As someone who has had to do two colonoscopies I have noticed that there is no mucoid plaque in the colon and intestines or that comes out during “prep.” Yet, I have done “three day cleanses” and I see the stuff come out that mimics the shape of the colon/intestines.
Bernard Jensen said it best in his book “Tissue cleansing through bowel management.” What we are pooping out is the actual crap in our tissues that finally gets a chance to be excreted by the colon via the cleanse.
To me this is an even better than just clearing the colon, this is deep tissue cleansing of the body, getting into the interstitial spaces and clearing all the crap inside our body.
Being that detox products help to draw things out, it would make sense how it can draw out more than is simply there in the intestines, sort of the reverse process of digestion where food is broken down and brought into the human body, here it goes in the opposite way. This makes sense to me.
