Client Testimonials About The Birth Control Detox Program

Migraine Headaches For Years - Gone With Homeopathy!

"For years I had severe headaches.  It was affecting my life.  I didn’t realize it was connected to my hormones and monthly cycles.  It took me a long time to figure this out.  A few days before my period I would get a severe headache that would have me miserable and in bed for a day.  They seemed to get worse as time went on and last longer and longer.  My primary physician gave me a prescription to help the headaches.  While it did help my headache, it usually took a few hours to get under control but then I’d have awful side effects and overall I wouldn’t feel good.  So I never wanted to take the drug because what good is that if it takes away the head pain but then your entire body inside and out feels awful?  My friend said I should get in contact with Kari J. Kindem.  It was the best decision! 

She was very thorough and did an in depth review of my health history and knew exactly what plan of action was needed!  She suggested it was important to do a birth control detox.  I didn’t realize how much I needed this!  But I’m thankful she did!  She gets to the root of the problem where pharmaceuticals suppress it.  She is right by your side and guides you through the entire detox cycle.  She is very quick to respond and cares about her clients.  She puts a lot heart into helping her clients.  Since the Birth Control Detox my headaches are less intense and actually this last month I did not even get a headache before starting my cycle.  So my cycle actually snuck up on me because I was expecting to get a headache first but didn’t!  I can’t thank you enough Kari!" (Chrissy, mom of 2, Illinois, USA. Posted April 2022)


Improved Health And Weight Loss After Birth Control Detox

"Kari J. Kindem CFHom, began supervising my birth control detox in April 2018.  I was 36 with an impressively suppressive history of antibiotics, antivirals, Botox, steroids, vaccines, over-the-counters, and birth control use.  Through gentle homeopathic clearings, Kari methodically peeled off each suppressive layer.  In the process, she also helped me peel off well over 20 pounds.  As of September 2020, I'm 39.  This is the healthiest, trimmest, and fittest - and happiest - I've been in my entire adult life. 

Ten pounds effortlessly vanished during the birth control detox.  Most of the weight came from the hips and upper thighs.  My body shape actually changed:  no more pear shape.  During the antibiotic detox, eight pounds rapidly appeared; however, this disappeared during the twelve week detox as my GI system healed.  Since, the continued weight loss has been steady - and permanent.  The most drastic weight loss occurred during the flu shot detox.  I'd received the vaccine 9 years earlier.  Over the 12 week detox period, more than 12 pounds melted away.  I'm continuing to lose inches since completing this clearing.  My hips and thighs are as lean as college cheerleading days.  

I take the Trace Minerals recommended after an HTMA hair test and follow the suggested dietary guidelines based on the mineral analysis report. These minerals provide much energy, and I joined a gym after a multi-year hiatus. 

Thanks to Kari, I recently celebrated my third month being migraine free.  Since 2005, a migraine per week minimum was the norm.  Throughout my 20's and most of my 30's, no matter what I did, my weight plateaued, 1/2 pound weight gains added up, and I stayed on a caffeine/sugar/medicine cycle thanks to the debilitating migraines.  Not anymore.  Thanks to Kari and homeopathy, 39 looks to be the best yet!

Birth Control Detox and Other Prescription Drugs Detoxed With Success

"In January 2004, I started the birth control pill (continuing through January 2011).  By 2006, I routinely suffered migraines, insomnia, and GI upsets but attributed these to the stress of law school.  By 2008, I popped OTC's for a variety of persistent ailments on a daily basis.  In May 2008, I began Botox injections quarterly (through May 2018, pausing during pregnancy).  Despite exercising 10+ hours per week and following a restrictive diet, 1/2 pound weight gains added up.  I constantly fought colds, so antibiotic use mounted.  This gradual 6 year health decline culminated in a trigeminal neuralgia diagnosis in August 2010.  The left jaw pain and shooting spinal electric shocks were unbearable.  After weeks of taking Carbamazepine (Tegretol) as prescribed, relief came through concurrent rounds of antibiotic and antiviral.  Once the facial pain subsided, a nutritionist's guidance provided overall improvement.  But, the migraines, nosebleeds, and sinus congestion lingered.  In April 2011, I received a TDap booster.  We discovered our pregnancy in July 2011.  While pregnant, I received a flu shot and later took a round of antibiotics for severe bladder infection. 

Our blessing of a son arrived via C-section in March 2012.  By 2015, my daily life included migraines, insomnia, chronic sinus congestion, major fatigue, irregular and painful menses, and roaming myalgia pains.  The signature jaw pain of trigeminal neuralgia flared regularly.  Excruciating episodes of debilitating sore throats emerged.  My reliance on antibiotics, antivirals, and OTC's exploded.  In 2016, my left hand lost a substantial amount of range of motion.  My list of digestible foods was rapidly shrinking.  I began vomiting regularly.  And, most importantly, our beloved boy's development had stalled significantly:  autism.  The heartache, helplessness, and hopelessness were overwhelming.  But, God heard our years of desperate prayers. 

In April 2018, Kari Kindem also accepted our son as a CEASE client.  Hope!  She also graciously accepted me as a client.  Two years - and six detoxes - later, she has reversed 16 years of suffering and given me health and happiness.  Moreover, our beloved boy is pain-free, joyful, and developing! 

During our initial Skype session, Kari immediately noted my 7 years of birth control use and recommended the detox.  Following a HTMA hair test, I started Trace Minerals (and continue to the present).  During the birth control detox, I quickly shed perpetual bloat, lost 10 pounds, and also experienced less frequent migraines.  Sleep greatly improved, and I shook free the previously all-consuming general malaise.  I sweated profusely through this detox - and it did not always smell very ladylike.  At the detox's conclusion, the change was amazing!  Had we stopped after this single detox, my life would have been permanently and significantly improved, but we pressed forward due to my substantial pharmaceutical use. 

The Botox detox was second.  I loved Botox.  It works:  I had no wrinkles and vainly worried that they would return post-detox.  They did not.  Brighter, firmer, and plumper skin emerged.  Although vomiting and migraines regularly occurred during this detox, I was steadily able to digest a wider variety of foods.  Daily life was better and better. 

Following a two month rest, we started the third detox:  antibiotics.  Extensive antibiotic use rendered this a difficult detox.  Years of runny nose, sinus congestion and pain, constant frontal headache, and nosebleeds cleared.  Once I completed this detox, I could breathe!  Healed nasal passages also eliminated facial puffiness and eyelid swelling I'd fought on a daily basis.  Success!

One year into chronic care with Kari life was fun again.  About this time, our son's MTHFR results returned indicating his being a double carrier of C677T (a metabolic disorder).  At her recommendation, we all began methylfolate on a daily basis.  This provided a daily boost and seemed to supercharge the homeopathic remedies. 

The fourth detox was for the antiviral Valtrex.  My HTMA hair test revealed a slow metabolism susceptible to viral infections.  This indicated why I'd become so reliant on Valtrex:  the aforementioned tortuous sore throats only responded to this medication.  A surprising number of GI and liver issues played out during this detox.  The toenail fungus long settled on the tips of my big toes permanently cleared.  Many old memories and emotions released through dreams and flashbacks.  This detox proved quite cleansing. 

Kari advised that the fifth detox of Carbamazepine would be arduous as the circumstances surrounding the medicine's use were rather dire.  Indeed, major fatigue, neurologic fog, some manic behavior, as well as flare ups of left jaw pain and temporal arteritis occurred.  Yet, sustained energy, happiness, and laughter appeared.  I even started going to a gym.  She guided me through two extreme strep episodes.  I've not yet had another sore throat.  Memory and recall significantly sharpened following this detox. 

Next, Kari suggested ReMag on a daily basis.  Stamina, pep, and overall well-being resulted.  The ReMag lotion tightened my skin and effectively eliminated any lingering issues of premenstrual cramps and bloating. 

The sixth and final detox was TDaP.  The booster was administered in May 2011; this detox commenced January 2020.  Zits, dry skin patches, fatigue, and overwhelming waves of nausea occurred.  My years-long nagging desire to stress eat by gorging on sugar and salt rapidly diminished.  Upon conclusion, I felt more like 18 than 38.  Amazing!

In 2 years, Kari meticulously and gently stripped away layer after layer of toxins, chemicals, and heavy metal damage.  From age 23 to 36, my life was dictated by my suffering body's next pain/ailment.  It was a difficult existence.  We prayed for release for years - Kari is an answer to innumerable prayers.  We thank God each day for her, our health, the continued deliverance of our son, and for homeopathy.  "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and (that your body) may keep well, even as (I know) your soul keeps well and prospers."  III John 1:2 (Amplified).  We are forever grateful."

Birth Control Pill Detoxification Over 12 Weeks by a Mom, Age 49

"I just finished up a Birth Control Pill Detoxification Program I am 48 years old, and was on the birth control pill for approximately 6 years in my 20's. During the clearing, I started to feel “lighter”, my energy levels became much more consistent and higher, and my mood leveled out, with less mood swings.  I had a few exteriorizations, a few headaches which Kari explained could happen when the hormones were changing, and a little breakout under my nose with a sore on my tongue, but besides those exteriorizations, the detoxification process was easy and painless.  Before the clearing, my body started developing cysts in my breasts, as confirmed by ultrasound, and I am excited to see if this clearing will halt or reverse this process!

Susan, Mother of 2, Colorado, USA, November 2017



Birth Control Pill Detoxification Over 12 Weeks by a Mom, Age 38

"The Homeopathic Practitioner been helping take care of my family and I for over 7 years now.  I watched a video about all the side effects and the lasting effects of birth control pills.  Since I was only on them for a combined amount of about 3 years and had been off for quite awhile I always thought I didn't have to worry.   After watching the video, I felt differently about that and decided to do the birth control rebalancing program and am so glad I did.  

Within a few days of starting the protocol, I began to sleep much deeper and started to remember my dreams again.  I also began having normal bowel movements again.  The last 2 cycles that I had is where I noticed the biggest changes.  I didn't have the soreness and sensitivity in my nipples the week prior to starting my period that I had been having.  Nor did I have the cramping during my period.  I would always have to take magnesium to help with the cramping and I didn't feel any discomfort!  I also realized that I didn't have any night sweats that I would have off and on the week prior and shortly after my period ended as my hormones were shifting. 

These changes made me see that the birth control pills were still causing me issues even though I have been off of them for over 10 years!

I am so thankful for Kari telling me about this and her knowledge and expertise!  She is a blessing to my family and I and the countless others she has helped.  Thank you Kari for all your hard work and continuous studies."

Ashley, Registered Nurse, Mother of 2, Texas, USA, January 2018


Birth Control Pill Detoxification Over 12 Weeks by a Mom, Age 40

"From January 2004 to January 2011, I took the birth control pillBy mid-2007, migraines, constant sinus pressure, acid reflux, and insomnia were the norm.  I attributed these to the stress of law school/practice.  After stopping the birth control pill I felt better, but the aforementioned ailments remained.

In July 2011, we learned we were pregnant.  Much prayer and tears over our autistic son led us to the blessing who is Kari J. Kindem.  Not only did she initiate a holistic healing process for our joy of a boy, she cleaned up my exhausted, birth control poisoned body through detox.  

Since the birth of our son, I've experienced recurrent sore throats, ongoing sinus pressure and headaches, migraines, severe left jaw pain, left shoulder/arm/hand pain with the loss of some fine motor skills in the hand, chronic fatigue, and anxiety.  Menses were scanty and painful.  Sleep was intermittent.  I sweated profusely - and sometimes it smelled quite unladylike.  Skin was dull.  Allergies to food and cosmetics were skyrocketing.  A mental fog kept me bogged down.  Everything felt overwhelming.  I told myself this was all from the stress of our son's difficulties.  Kari explained that these ill effects were the birth control pill still wreaking internal havoc.  

The 10 week birth control rebalancing program changed my life:  No more migraines, no more chronic sinus pressure, a healthy GI system, regular menses, deep sleep, drastically less and infrequent joint pain, mental clarity, and no more fatigue - but plenty of energy.  The tell-tale sign the detox is working is the reliving of symptoms, but for a short time - and sometimes the last.  Around one month into the rebalancing program, I had a HTMA hair test performed and began the prescribed supplements and diet.  This turbo-boosted my well-being.  And, hello, bright skin and some weight loss.  

I didn't realize how horribly I felt on a daily basis until this rebalancing program eliminated the perpetual aches, exhaustion, and general malaise.  Today's energy level reminds me more of how I felt in high school - which was great.  

My husband has never known me without chronic stress, migraines, and fatigue.  My son has never had a mother not riddled with anxiety, joint pain, and the drain of constant sinus issues.  Now, they have someone more joyful, affectionate, patient, and engaged.  Our lives are much happier. 

We thank God every day for Kari J. Kindem and her amazing, life-changing practice."

Natural Fertility Program and Birth Control Detox Success!

"Thank you so much for helping me conceive my little boy. He is PERFECT!

I (like many others) spent basically my whole adult life worried about an unplanned pregnancy. Over the course of 17+years I was on every form of birth control imaginable - the pill, the ring and 2 IUDs.  When I didn’t get pregnant after having my IUD removed, I ran across Kari’s website but didn’t reach out hoping I would conceive on my own.

I was referred to a fertility clinic by my OBGYN for “unexplained infertility” after trying for 9 months on my own. When I say I tried.. I TRIED. Ovulation strips and supplements and every ovulation tracking app and gadget I ran across. My periods and labs were “perfect” but still no baby. Finally, I ran back across Kari’s website (I remember the site because of the bright pink background) and decided to reach out because I was looking for a natural and holistic approach to conceiving.

At first, I was disappointed that Kari suggest we NOT try for the 3 months of the rebalancing program but I believed in the process and agreed. Spoiler alert - I got pregnant with my super baby IMMEDIATELY after completing the Birth Control Detox Program at 35 years old!

I am so happy I decided to wait for my body to be 100% rid of the birth control toxins. At the time I had no idea what complications could arise from conceiving with so many toxins running through my system.

Not only was I able to conceive immediately but I had The EASIEST pregnancy I’ve ever heard of - NO Sickness/Nausea, reflux/heartburn, hemorrhoids, stretch marks…NOTHING! The birth was easier than the pregnancy - 100% natural, no drugs or interventions. Six hours after my water broke I caught my son myself in the birth pool- he was even born breech!

I highly suggest working with Kari because she is SO knowledgeable at what she does. Do the work, don’t give up hope and it WILL pay off. Sending light, love and baby dust to all! 

Allison, new mother at age 35, Texas, USA February 2021.

Homeopathic Clearing Program For DES - Diethylstilbestrol

We also offer an effective 12 week (3 month) homeopathic clearing program for DES women, their DES sons and DES daughters, as well as DES grandsons and DES granddaughters.

About Diethylstilbestrol (DES)
DES also known formerly as stilboestrol, is a synthetic, nonsteroidal estrogen of the stilbestrol group that was first synthesized in 1938 to prevent premature births. It is also classified as an endocrine disruptor.

  • From about 1940 to 1971, DES was given to pregnant women in the mistaken belief it would reduce the risk of pregnancy complications and losses.
  • As a result, an estimated 5-10 million pregnant women and the children born of these pregnancies were exposed to DES.
  • Physicians prescribed DES to pregnant women on the theory that miscarriages and premature births occurred because some pregnant women did not produce enough estrogen naturally. At the time, physicians thought DES was safe and would prevent miscarriages and pre-term (early) births.
  • In 1953, published research showed that DES did not prevent miscarriages or premature births.
  • In 1971, DES was shown to cause clear cell carcinoma, a rare vaginal tumor, in girls and women who had been exposed to this drug in utero.
  • The US Food and Drug Administration subsequently withdrew approval of DES as a treatment for pregnant women. In 1971, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Drug Bulletin advising physicians to stop prescribing DES to pregnant women. The FDA warning was based on a study published in 1971 that identified DES as a cause of a rare vaginal cancer in girls and young women who had been exposed to DES before birth (in the womb).
  • Follow-up studies have indicated that DES also has the potential to cause a variety of significant adverse medical complications during the lifetimes of those exposed.
  • The US National Cancer Institute recommends women born to mothers who took DES undergo special medical exams on a regular basis to screen for complications as a result of the drug.
  • Individuals who were exposed to DES during their mothers' pregnancies are commonly referred to as "DES daughters" and "DES sons" (also DES grandaughters, DES grandsons).
  • The news that DES could be harmful led to a national effort to find women prescribed DES while pregnant and notify them of the potential DES-related health problems. Physicians reviewed patients' medical records and notified women who had been prescribed DES. As a result of this effort, many women were made aware of the DES health risk known at that time, known as clear cell adenocarcinoma (CCA), a rare vaginal cancer.
  • Women were encouraged to have their DES-exposed daughters screened regularly by a gynecologist because CCA was found in girls as young as 8 years old.
  • Researchers studied the health of these DES-exposed cohorts for more than 20 years. Much of what is known about DES-related health risks is the result of these long-term studies. For more information on these cohort studies, click here.
  • There is no medical test (such as blood, urine, or skin analysis) can detect DES exposure.
  • To assess whether you may have been exposed to DES and to learn what you can do about DES, refer to the Interactive DES Self-Assessment Guide, and What You Can Do About DES.
  • All DES-exposed persons are at an increased risk for developing some health problems when compared with persons who were not exposed to DES. All of the health problems related to DES exposure also can occur in persons who were not exposed to DES. CDC's DES update provides information on DES-related health effects.
  • Many companies manufactured DES and similar synthetic drugs. In 1976, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a list of the most commonly used names and spellings for DES and similar drugs.
