While you are using Evening Cleanse, it is important to follow the instructions on the label. Senna is laxative and celery has diuretic properties. Both are great for an occasional short-term detox. However they can, if abused, cause problems. Senna is a herbal medicine not a food. We sell the tea in good faith that consumers will read the directions and follow them correctly.
With excessive doses and/or long-term use:
- The body can lose excessive amounts of the essential mineral potassium through the bowel and the urine. Potassium is needed for correct functioning of nerves, muscles, red blood cells and fluid balance, as well as many other functions.
- Excessive loss of water can lead to dehydration, fatigue, and dizziness. You should drink plenty of water while using Evening Cleanse.
- High doses of laxatives can cause griping, a painful cramping of the intestines, and diarrhoea.
- Long-term abuse of laxatives can weaken the muscles of the digestive tract so that the body becomes dependent on laxatives to move the bowel at all.
- This is why laxatives and diuretics should not be used long-term or in high dosage, especially in combination, unless under the supervision of a qualified health care practitioner.
- Several of our people have employees have used a course of Evening Cleanse 4 times per year and have not observed any problems. Our program of 1 dose every second day for 2 or 4 weeks is probably gentler than a herbal medicine textbook rule of a dose every day for 7 to 14 days.
