Both the liquid and the powder made me sick! I love the shakes! I have lost 10 lbs and do feel better overall. I am a nurse and am really skeptical about the whole cleansing thing.

Isagenix is the only thing i have ever done that worked lbs total weight loss and kept it off for 2 years!

Totaly changed my life!! I got extremely ill on this product…threw up and it took me a week to recover. My doctor says that a lot of these herbs are not good for people…obviously that was true for me. As I was throwing up and in bad shape my Isagenix person was calling me on the phone and telling me to continue…she didnt care about my or my health just about making her commission.

They want you to do 2 days of precleanse recommended. I never did that I broke daow and ate dinner. It does make people nausous. You have the choice of drinking it straight then water. Thats what I do. It sounds like you jumped straight into the Cleanse, which is too abrupt a change for some people. You were in the middle of cleaning out your body! When you change the oil in your car, what comes out?

Exact same thing happened to me. This happens to me everytime and I know the reason. I was just full of junk!

Sounds like the isagenix associate was being a great cheerleader and trying to help you through cleanse symptoms.

By this point we knew she was sick because she was on shake days food and still having symptoms. I told her if she had to take anything for her symptoms to go ahead but if she still felt bad when the last 2 days came up not to do them.

It just seems like we live in a paranoid world where everyone thinks someone is out to get them. I signed her up as an associate, for her benefit, so she could save money. If you are an isagenix rep you know the commission is sooo much less than it would be to sell it retail. Myself and my friend tried Isagenix myself for a month and my friend for a week we both became uncharacteristically aggressive and are wondering what is in this product to cause such a mood altering reaction?

I am on the 8th day of my 9 day cleanse, and I can promise you I feel amazing! So I thought my body would go into schock without them, but I have never felt better. The inches are coming off everywhere, and even though I know I may not be able to maintain the weight loss, just feeling better and getting all the toxins out is worth the price for the cleanse. Hi, please refer to the Isagenix official website to reach their supportive customer service for details on product usage.

On the shake mix? I like the vanilla you can do more things with it. It is a nutritional program that helps to clean your body from toxins. Had my first shake today.
