Let’s start by understanding that our supplements are natural supplements, with ingredients containing antioxidants, known for their healing and cleansing properties. Because of this, some people may experience a natural cleansing. Sometimes this natural cleansing involves eliminating toxins faster than the body is used to, so some people may temporarily experience some uncomfortable symptoms. This is known as the healing crisis (or Herxheimer reaction) and can include temporary symptoms, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Strong body odor
  • Strong or unusual sweat
  • Insomnia

Most people do not experience any healing crisis, but if you do, simply decrease the number of daily capsules to 2 or even 1 a day.  Begin increasing the number gradually to give your body time to catch up with the detoxification.   Keep in mind that this is a natural process and it is nothing to be afraid of.  The body is just releasing toxins at a higher rate than normal. 

Please read all ingredients listed on the labels. If your body is very toxic, or if you suffer from adverse or allergic reactions to certain ingredients, consult your health practitioner. Do not take any supplements if you’re allergic to any ingredients listed.

Stay active and keep hydrated!

During this time when you may experience discomfort due to the body’s elimination of toxins, it is important to keep extra hydrated! Your body needs the extra water to flush out toxins and keep the bowels moving efficiently. As we explained before, some people experience this temporary healing crisis or Herxheimer reaction, because the level of toxins in the body is higher than the body is used to.  The organs of elimination (like the kidneys, liver, bladder, skin) are trying to keep up with the extra work but are overwhelmed, so the body reacts temporarily with some of the symptoms listed above.  Once the levels return to normal, people feel fine, and in some cases, people feel better than they did before.  So, remember to pack that water bottle wherever you go and stay active, as sweating helps the body get rid of toxins.

Recommended Dosage

Always consult a trained medical professional before taking any supplements.


The ingredients in StemLiver™ work in synergy to help the body along in its detoxification process. We recommend taking StemLiver™ according to the directions on the label, which is 3 capsules daily. If you notice any discomfort such as any listed above, lower your daily intake to 2 or even 1 per day. We do not recommend exceeding the daily dosage of 3 capsules because the mineral selenium, one of StemLiver’s ingredients is only needed in the body in small amounts.


Much like StemLiver™, StemDigest™ works with your body to more effectively process sugars and fats. This elimination process could potentially increase the toxins eliminated from your body, causing some temporary symptoms. As per the label, we recommend taking no more than 3 capsules daily, but if you experience any uncomfortable symptoms (see list above), then reduce daily intake to 2, or even 1 capsule per day. Because of its mineral content (namely chromium) do not exceed the recommended 3 daily capsules because the body needs only small amounts of such minerals.


Start with the minimum dose indicated on the label and if you wish to increase the amount, do it gradually. Why? Because StemAlive™ is high in antioxidants and other ingredients with natural healing properties. Even though the main purpose of StemAlive™ is to activate and nourish stem cells, StemAlive™ stimulates the body’s natural elimination of toxins. As listed above, some people may experience uncomfortable symptoms due to what is known as the healing crisis, which is simply a temporary period of time where the body going through detoxification.

StemAlive™ can be taken up to 12 capsules daily (4 capsules, 3 times a day). Please keep in mind that it is important to consult with your practitioner and follow their advice.
