Smart Cleanse Detox: 14 Day Naturopathic Detox and Weight Loss Program - Road-test

Last year, I started a cleanse of my body, a detox like no other.

It's called the 'Smart Cleanse', it's developed by an Australian woman, and… it really, truly works.

Savannah Daisley (BHSc ND) is the brains behind this fantastic new brand. She is a naturopath and the director of research and development for the brand, and she knows her stuff. So I asked her all the questions I myself had about the system, before I embarked on it. She answered them all expertly, and I know it'll help you as you embark on the program. (Scroll down further for info on the whole Smart Cleanse system). Below is Savannah, and all that comes in the box, including a hugely comprehensive instruction book, guide and recipe book all in one. You guys, it is like someone holding your hand. This also answers all the questions you may have.

Oh, and did I lose weight? Yes, yes I did. While I was doing it: not much: 1-2 kilos. It was AFTER I finished that I noticed the weight coming off… all up, around 5kg. Typically, people on the Smart Cleanse can lose even more weight. One huge benefit for me was that the Smart Cleanse recalibrate my body clock: suddenly, I was going to bed at the right time, getting tired at the right time, my body biorhythms seemed to be back on track. After a stressful few months prior, this is exactly what my body needed. A by product of good sleep patterns - weight loss! It's all good.

Josie’s Juice Q & A:

Tell me what you think is the perception of detox right now?

To many Australians 'detox' is a dirty word, meaning they would rather not hear about it so that they can continue with their current lifestyle choices. Then there are the people in between who can admit they are suffering, and know they need to change something, but they are completely stuck so they are resistant to detox and have barriers such as:

“I am too busy to commit to a detox right now”
“Detoxes are hard to follow” or
“Detoxes are hocus pocus and not safe”

I would say though that overall there is a rapidly increasing awareness about detoxification and cleansing being the cornerstone to health and vitality, and also treating the cause of illness. These are also the people that know that there just isn’t something quite right about “every pill for an ill”. They are aware of the wellness revolution and that preventative health (detoxification) is the smartest approach to long-term health management and they are more than willing to go on a cleanse 2-4 x per year.

What is different about the Smart Cleanse Detox?

Unlike other detoxification programs, Smart Cleanse is high quality, potent, contains certified organic ingredients giving it maximum bioavailability, and has been developed using a researched naturopathic and scientific foundation. This is what makes Smart Cleanse the unique and natural practitioner grade detox program it’s fast becoming renowned for.

14 Day Smart Cleanse is in fact the ONLY Premium, Practitioner Grade, Straight-Out-Of-The-Box Detox and Ketogenic (fat-burning) Weight Loss Program available on the shelf in Australia.

Other Practitioner Grade Detox Programs aren’t available in kit form (their products are sold separately), are more expensive (around $300), are longer in duration, and are Practitioner only so need to be kept behind the counter. They also require a Naturopath to monitor and direct your progress which is costly.

And then other detox kits on the shelf are based on starvation and no medicinal strategy. They are cheap, not naturally derived, synthetic and poor quality or they use an all at once approach failing to address the digestive system before repairing gut lining and cleansing the liver. They also don't combine detox with a ketogenic weight loss plan Smart Cleanse does.

What was the absolute catalyst for you to get into the wellness industry?

After having a childhood wrought with junk food (toxic food), and suffering bouts of tonsillitis on every holiday we went on as a teenager, I innately felt that I wasn’t doing something right. I began reading nutrition journals at the age of 15 and by 19 was studying to become a Naturopath.

Even though I became a personal trainer in my early 20’s and at one point was toying with Naturopathy and a Health Science Degree versus an Exercise Science Degree, I always knew that the science of a Persons’ internal health would help people treat the cause, of their obesity for example, than exercise alone. I’ve always been a deep thinker and have needed to know the “why” and “how” of health, not just exercise alone!

That's why I decided to complete a Bachelor of Health Science at the University of New England.

Ten years ago I went to a lecture where I met with the famous Cellular Biologist Dr Bruce Lipton of Stanford University Medical School USA, who shared his research findings that 95 percent of disease was caused by toxins, stress and negative beliefs (perception).

That light bulb moment then was the beginning of my interest in detoxification, which recently became the inspiration behind forming 14 Day Smart Cleanse.

Should people expect weight loss on the Smart Cleanse, and if so, why does this happen with a detox?

Your fat cell cleverly zips up toxins within it to protect your body from harm. This is because toxins are fat-soluble so the more toxic you are the more weight you gain. Detoxing reduces your toxic exposure and level of toxicity, so there is a reduced need for the creation of body fat to protect you from toxic harm.

Also, a detox reduces the amount of stress hormones in your body like adrenalin, and especially cortisol which is a fat-storing stress hormone that deposits fat in your midsection. When stress hormones remain low so do blood sugar and insulin (fat-storing hormone) levels.

Clearing constipation through colon cleansing in week one of the detox also helps to burn body fat. People can expect to lose between 4-5 kilos with this detox program and that’s without mention of the Program’s ketogenic dietary plan that when combined with detox is a double edged sword for weight loss.

My stumbling blocks in the past around detox is that it is so limiting and… hard! What does one have to actually do to undertake the Smart CleanseCD?

Nothings harder than being tired, toxic and overweight, struggling to get out of bed every morning. That being said one of the biggest barriers to detox is facing the withdrawal symptoms that accompanies letting go of your vices.

That’s why Smart Cleanse highly recommends detox preparation 3 days prior to minimise the side effects of withdrawal. Weaning yourself of caffeine for example is much better than cold turkey to avoid that major headache that would otherwise make detox seem hard.

It is also far from limiting dietary wise when you see that eating delicious combinations of organic protein, vegetables, fruits, seeds, fresh herbs and good fats leaves you feeling balanced and fully satisfied.

I know you are interested in stress management strategies - can detoxing assist with that?

To touch on it again, yes detoxification is like a vacation for every cell in your body (we are made of 50 trillion cells) from the assault of toxins and especially stress hormones released from your adrenal glands. Detoxing reduces stress levels because it strictly advises the avoidance of stimulants altogether, which may over stimulate your adrenals. This allows these organs to recover building your resistance to stress, increasing your fuse, and also your energy levels. Detox encourages better sleep too so there is more release of your fat-burning and anti-ageing Human Growth Hormone synthesised in your adrenal glands. Something you definitely want more of!

So there you have it! I hope your questions were answered here. Here is more about Savannah herself, and further down, the website and social media details so you can learn even more.

Savannah is seen here drinking one of the Smart Cleanse drinks you mix up. Guys, it's actually quite nice. AND: you get used to all the tastes super-quick.

Savannah Daisley began her career 16 years ago in the Wellness Industry and has been working with patients and clients ever since. Specialising in Detoxification, Stress Management and Weight Loss, Savannah has a strong passion for Health, Fitness, Wellness and Disease Reversal.

Savannah worked tirelessly to educate people in seminars on Detoxification at the renowned Golden Door Health Retreat Hunter Valley, uncovering how toxins have a detrimental effect on cell function and structure, and how the individual can reach optimum health with Detox and Stress Management strategies.

While Savannah has enjoyed the benefits of exceptional health and wellbeing for a number of years, this wasn’t always the case in her younger years. After years of imbalance, Savannah experienced a life- changing moment, which was the beginning of her interest in detoxification and the inspiration behind forming Smart Cleanse.

After realising that detoxification, stress management, re-programming self-limiting beliefs, and eating totally organically gave her optimum health, Savannah researched and developed the Premium Naturopathic Detox Program ‘14 Day Smart Cleanse’, with the vision of helping people around the world embrace the power of health and vitality.

Savannah is also the author of ‘14 Day Smart Cleanse’, the comprehensive instruction manual that accompanies the Detox Kit, and the author of an upcoming book based on ‘Epigenetics’, the latest on health, and how stress and toxins have a detrimental effect on cell function and structure.

Over a number of years, Savannah has helped thousands of people detoxify their bodies, lose weight, boost their digestion, improve strength and fitness, eliminate stress, reverse the ageing process and overcome various adverse health conditions through the benefits of detoxification.

“They say that the most empowering outcomes can arise from the most challenging journeys and the discovery of Smart Cleanse is no exception.” - Savannah Daisley

And now, more on the whole Smart Cleanse system, via the publicity and fact sheet:

Smart Cleanse – Product/ Fact Sheet

Do you constantly feel run down & tired? Does your skin appear dull & flat?
Do you feel, tired, toxic and overweight? Is your busy schedule creating poor habits? Have you ever tried a detox program?

What is Smart Cleanse?
Unlike other detoxification programs, Smart Cleanse is great tasting, high quality, potent, contains certified organic ingredients and has been developed using a researched naturopathic and scientific foundation. This is what makes Smart Cleanse the unique and natural practitioner grade detox program it’s fast becoming renown for.
14 Day Smart Cleanse is in fact the ONLY Premium, Practitioner Grade, Straight-Out-Of-The-Box Detox and Weight Management Program available on the shelf in Australia.

How does it work?

In order to be successful, a sound detox program needs you to address your digestive system and support your gut first, before you cleanse your liver.

14 Day Smart Cleanse does all of this by following the naturopathic detox program philosophy - Weed, Seed and Feed. This vitally important process occurs over 14 days using a simple-to-follow program, containing everything you need straight out of the box, to safely and successfully detoxify, without disrupting your daily routine.

It uses only naturally derived materials, no synthetics so has very high bioavailability, maximum therapeutic doses, is the ONLY detox kit that combines a Detox Program with a Ketogenic (fat burning) Weight Loss Program meaning fast, safe and effective weight loss with no starvation.

This program allows you to eat from the allowable food list contained in the instruction manual inside the kit, comprised of delicious, organic, detox and weight loss recipes. If
you don’t need to lose weight then it is advised to only follow the detox component and eat organic produce from all food groups, not just protein, vegetables and fruit (for weight loss).

The Ingredients. STEP 1: WEED

Bentonite (Drinking Clay)

Bentonite Drinking Clay has been used throughout history by various cultures for not only its ability to bind to toxins, but also for its abundant mineral content. Bentonite
binds five times its own volume of toxins and unwanted substances.
Bentonite Clay is also rich in Iron and Silica. Silica is a trace mineral that strengthens the body’s connective tissues - muscles, tendons, hair, ligaments, nails, cartilage, and bone - and is vital for healthy skin.

Colon Cleanse Formula Chia, Licorice Root & Aloe Vera (Formula)

When mixed with liquid, Chia acts as an intestinal broom, moving waste efficiently through the digestive tract, making it an excellent food for detoxification. Chia seeds are in fact a Superfood, are high in dietary fibre and contain more omega-3 fatty acids than flax seeds as well as high levels of protein, antioxidants, calcium, magnesium, zinc and other nutrients plus minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, potassium and iron. A single serving contains:
  •   27+ vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, & amino acids
  •   100% more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon
  •   Double the antioxidants found in blueberries
  •   41% of your daily fibre, more than flax seed!
  •   32% of your daily magnesium, more than broccoli!
Licorice root is another of our colon cleanse ingredients and has been used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory, laxative and to soothe inflamed mucous membranes, especially of the stomach and digestive tract. It actually softens, soothes, lubricates and nourishes the entire intestinal tract.

Aloe Vera gel has been used for a variety of medical ailments and claims have been made that it has anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting qualities. It is thought that Aloe Vera’s anti-inflammatory effect could help reduce symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Plant extracts are commonly used in the conventional symptomatic approach to manage constipation. The sap from Aloe Vera is known to have stimulant laxative properties. It is
excellent colon cleanse ingredient for this reason.

Weeding Formula (Capsules)

Cloves have powerful anti-parasitic and antiseptic properties, and are a great spice to heal ailments of the digestive system. Traditionally it has been used for mild digestive complaints such as flatulence, abdominal bloating, slow digestion and nausea. It is the oil – Eugenol – that is derived from the cloves that is so powerful.

Black walnut has been used traditionally as an ant-parasitic (attacks parasites in the gut). It contains a chemical called Juglone, which inhibits certain insects, bacteria, and fungi in plants, and also in the black walnut tree itself.

Researchers have searched for a correlation with its use internally in humans. Black Walnut does indeed also kill parasites in humans, along with a wide range of worms, tapeworms, roundworms, parasites and their eggs. It does this by oxygenating the blood, which kills the parasites.

As a result of this it also supports the natural balance of healthy intestinal flora within the GI Tract.

Pomegranate has a long history of use in traditional medicines especially in Chinese medicines to rid intestinal worms. The extract of the flowers and rind have shown good inhibitory action against most parasites. Pomegranate is also a powerful anti-oxidant, protecting against cellular damage due to free radicals. Stress, alcohol, cigarettes and pollution may increase free radical production in the body, and the potential for oxidative damage.


Gut Lining (Formula)
Spirulina is actually a blue-green microalgae that helped produce the oxygen in our atmosphere billions of years ago so that other life forms could appear. Spirulina is considered a Superfood, meaning it is incredibly rich in nutrients. It is also contains 60- 70% protein, which is more protein than beef, chicken or soybeans.

Spirulina is very beneficial to the digestive system, balancing acid secretion by its alkalizing properties, contains antiseptic properties, is soothing, and relieves constipation. It also contains wound healing properties due to its vitamin A content.

Turmeric Root Power. Turmeric is an Indian spice derived from the roots of the plant and has a long history of use in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for inflammatory conditions.

The oil fraction of turmeric has demonstrated potent anti-inflammatory activity in a variety of experimental models. Turmeric is actually one of the best natural inhibitors of the inflammatory cascade. Turmeric also increases mucous production in the gastric wall that acts as a protective barrier, and maintains the health of intestinal cells.

Shiitake Mushroom Powder. Medicinal mushrooms have been used in China and Japan for over 3,000 years to boost immunity and fight diseases such as cancer. A number of compounds in fungi have been found to stimulate the function of the immune system, inhibit tumour growth, and boost intestinal flora. Mushroom substances called Terpenoids help kill bacteria and viruses and also exert anti-inflammatory effects, while complex chain-like sugars called polysaccharides, exert anti-tumour and immune stimulating properties.

Probiotics. A healthy digestive system contains approximately 400 types of probiotic bacteria that work to reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast and help promote a healthy digestive system. Probiotics known as “friendly” or “good” bacteria, are live microorganisms, similar to the beneficial microorganisms naturally found in the human gut, that restore the body’s “friendly” bacteria, helping your immune system to fight off the growth of harmful bacteria, and wipe out “unfriendly” yeast.

Liver Tonic (Capsules)

St Mary’s Thistle seed is a proven liver protectant that also restores the liver’s ability to detoxify harmful substances. The liver-protecting and liver-repairing functions are due to two main actions: its antioxidant benefits and protein-restoring activities. The antioxidant activity of Silymarin, the active constituent, is ten times more powerful as an anti-oxidant than vitamin E.

Schisandra maintains healthy liver function by providing liver-protective activity against free radicals, via maintaining the liver’s antioxidant system. Schisandra also has adaptogenic capabilities meaning it has been shown in clinical trials to increase a person’s resistance to physical and emotional stress.

Trans-Resveratrol is a naturally occurring compound found in the roots of giant knotweed and also in blueberries, grapes (red wine), peanuts and in a total of 70 other plants, used as a protective device against bad weather, insects, bacteria and fungi. Trans-Resveratrol is a strong anti-oxidant in humans and is known to have a protective effect against atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, postmenopausal problems, a broad spectrum of degenerative diseases, and much more.
