Q. What can I do and can't do in Karyn's detox program while breastfeeding? A. We do not recommend participating in any sort of detox program if you are breastfeeding as toxins in your body are released directly into your breast milk.
Q. I forgot to take extra water with the detox clay cocktail. Have I caused any damage? A. No you have not, however, from now on take plenty of water following the detox clay cocktail to help move things internally.
Q. Is it okay to use stevia while detox? A. Stevia is fine to continue while detoxing. It is a natural sweetener.
Q. Which components of the detox are okay to do while pregnant? A. Although we discourage those who are pregnant to detox, you can still use the following detox products: Green Living Fiber, Vitamin C, Karyn's Green Meal, Coconut Oil, Flax Oil, Herbal Aloe Force (but please use minimally), Soy Lecithin Granules, Organic Kamut, Spirulina, Dietary Enzymes, however, DO NOT do fenugreek.
Q. I’m in day 2 of the juice fast. My diet has been 95% raw for the past 7 months. For the past two months, I’ve had black
circles under my eyes and redness around the sides of my eyes. Any idea why? A. I am in no position to diagnose, although that said, it is
my understanding that dark circles indicate that adrenals or kidneys are
stressed. I wonder if you are
drinking enough liquids for your kidneys? I would also check your stress levels? I would suggest meditating through your
fast and doing breath work. Also,
I would personally add digestive enzymes to my protocol while juicing, as well
as adding Rejuvelac, which is a product we sell but you can also make by
watching our youtube.
Q. I am interested in doing your 4
week detox program. Do you deliver
your DVD to Australia? A. Yes, we can
ship Karyn’s 4 week Detox DVD across the world. It is available for sale on our website at www.karynraw.com/products. You can also take the class through
Karyn’s book Soak Your Nuts. Also, we can ship non-refrigerated products world-wide.
Q. When is the
next detox class scheduled? Where
will it be? How much does it cost? A. The dates for the detox can be located at www.karynraw.com/detox. All detox classes are held at Karyn’s Inner Beauty Center at 1901 N. Halsted, Chicago, IL 60614. The cost of the class is $250 for new
students but if you register at least a week early, you will receive a $50
discount so tuition will be $200.
Cost for alumni is always $125.
Q. I am currently in
your detox program and stared fasting today. Just wanted to confirm what I can take during the fast. Green Living Fiber, Ultra Flora,
Systemic Enzymes, Chlorella, and Spirulina instead of wheatgrass? I already have the Spirulina. Do I need
to get the E3-Alive? And enemas every day, right? A. Yes, you can do all
of those. You do not need to use
E3Alive if you are doing Karyn’s Algae Alive and you can make your own Algae Alive
with the Spirulina. You must do a
colonic or enema and implant every day you fast.
Q. I took your detox program many years
ago and was very successful. I am
50 years old and dealing with estrogen dominance. I’ve had surgeries and fibroids removed with a sensitivity in my gut. Although I do well on a veggie diet, I
never seem to lose weight. I could
afford to lose 10-15 lbs. Do you
think I should participate in your detox? A. If you did the detox 10 years
ago, you are certainly due again. I detox a minimum of 4 times a year. In terms
of cramps, people generally experience discomfort in the process on their way
to getting better.
Q. Is Karyn's Green Meal powder gluten free? A. Karyn's Green Meal powder is not gluten free. It has sprouted grains in it. Karyn's teacher, Dr. Wigmore, taught that when grains are sprouted they do not usually produce the gluten protein that people have a sensitivity to so many gluten intolerant people will be able to use the green meal and other sprouted grain products, such as Rejuvelac. However, this is something that needs to be tested on an individual basis and discussed with a doctor if there is any concern. Our Hemp Protein Booster in gluten free.
Q. I want to transition my diet to vegan. How can I eat healthier at home? A. Our Karyn's At Home program provides 5 days of breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert of heat-sealed food to ensure freshness. Raw, Cooked, and Gluten-Free meals options are available. Orders are taken by Thursdays at 12 p.m. CST. and can be picked up on Sundays between 12-10 p.m. at 1901 N. Halsted. The menu changes on a weekly basis. Find the full menu, pricing, and ordering information at http://www.karynraw.com/At-Home/
Q. Will Karyn's Alkaline Water remain alkaline out of the refrigerator? A. We suggest keeping alkaline water refrigerated, however, Karyn has personally left her alkaline water out for 2 days and when she tested it with pH strips and it was still alkaline. Karyn would not recommend keeping the water unrefrigerated for longer than 2 days because the pH balance might change.
Q. Why can’t I just drink chlorophyll
after a colonic instead of doing the implant? A. If you drink the chlorophyll as opposed to using it as an
implant after an enema or colonic, it does not go to the body as intently, but
it wouldn’t hurt as well. Please
notes that lots of doctors do medications rectally.
Q. I’m interested
in Karyn’s Systemic Enzymes.
Approximately what is the recommended daily dose? A. You can take 3 capsules on an
empty stomach once or twice daily.
This is just the recommended dose though. You can take them more often if you’d like, however, it is
very important that you take them on an empty stomach so you bypass the
Q. What is the name of the shampoo
that will make your hair grow faster and fuller? A. Morocco Method shampoo. We sell it at Karyn’s Fresh Corner and
online at www.karynraw.com/products.
Q. My dog has a small tumor that
the vet says needs to be removed.
I’ve already begun making him homemade meals because I remember you
saying you cook for your dog. Are there any home remedies to help cure my dog
without invasive surgery? A. Although I am not a veterinarian, I would start to give your
dog chlorella and enzymes. If you
are in Chicago, I would come in and use the Rife machine. The machine has been very successful on
sick animals and humans and we can get your dog on the right program. You can
also check out the book “Culinary Canine”. I was a contributing author and you can see the raw meals
that my dog Mitch eats.
Q. Do you know anywhere in Chicago I can
buy fermented vegetables? Our
doctor recommended fermented food for my autistic nephew. A. Rejuvelac would be very beneficial, it
is a sprouted fermented wheatberry drink that is a good probiotic for your
system. We also do a homemade sauerkraut
and sour cream. We also sell
several brands of live fermented food including Rejuvenative Foods and Gold
Q. How do you stay warm during winter
season while maintaining a 100% raw diet? A. I add ginger and cayenne to my foods which adds heat to the
body. I also leave foods out at
room temperature and you can actually warm food in a dehydrator to 115 degrees.
You can also add cayenne to your socks which will warm the whole body.
Q. Do you recommend a
doctor who operates in both worlds? I am look for a vegan-friendly doctor. A. I strongly recommend Dr. Lorene Wu who is in LaGrange and Dr. Carlos Reynes
in River Forest.
Q. I’ve had chronic
redness in my eyes. I saw a doctor
and he performed tests and x-rays and concluded that it was just dryness and no
infection. It still hasn’t cleared
up. Do you think that it is a
deficiency or something? Any foods I should be eating to clear this up? A. I would detox your
body and remain on a raw foods diet.
Often red eyes is a sign of liver or kidney chi problems. Also, I would take lots of digestive
Q. Where can I find Rejuvelac? A. We are the only place in the country that produces and sells
Rejuvelac. We are located at 1901
N. Halsted Street in Chicago. We
do sell the sprouted wheat berries and you can follow directions to make it on
your own at our YouTube channel “KarynRaw”.
Q. I’m looking into trying Karyn’s Green
Meal or Green Kamut products. I
believe both are detox products, but can you please tell me what the
differences are between the two? A. The Green Meal Powder and the Kamut are
actually very different. The Green
Meal powder has a large number of ingredients that will give you a high number
of greens, it can be used to make your Green Meal Shake. The Green Meal Shake is a delicious
smoothie that you can make and have as your breakfast each morning. It is very satisfying and will curb
your hunger until early afternoon.
It is also a great meal for anytime of day. Kamut is a powdered wheatgrass. It is chlorophyll and does help to make the body more
alkaline and aid in detoxing. Both
products help detox the body, just in different ways.
Q. I’ve been vegan for 3 years and
completed your detox program. I
still have problems with regular bowel movements. I’ve had several colonics and enemas but I would like my
body to go on my own. A. I would recommend drinking aloe vera juice
daily and incorporating Karyn’s Green Living Fiber into your diet as well. Follow the directions on the
