If you want to maintain your health you must take care to do healthy things. This means plenty of rest, pure natural water, an all-natural diet that contains no pesticides or preservatives and a healing cleanse once every few months.
Chemicals and pesticides are everywhere and our bodies normally do an excellent job of eliminating waste but the human body was not designed to filter out the massive levels of chemicals we’re being exposed to in the 21st century. By cleansing and detoxifying your body you’re ridding your system of all the toxins left over from normal elimination.
The easiest healing cleanse is simply replacing your usual diet with one consisting of mostly water and fresh fruits and vegetables. The cleansing diet is very controlled and meat, dairy, alcohol, and bread are off limits. This allows your body to absorb fewer calories and purge itself of all the undigested food, waste and toxins.
Cleansing is good for the body when done properly and for short periods of time. It is also recommended that you consult with a physician or dietician if you have any health problems. The first couple of days of a cleanse may cause fluctuations in blood sugar and prolonged misuse can result in malnutrition. Furthermore since this program is low in protein and complex carbohydrates, muscle growth and energy will be compromised. Therefore, it is important that you don’t remain on your healing cleanse for more than 10 days.
If your diet is very poor or you’re feeling fatigued, you may want a more thorough cleanse. There are several intestinal cleansing programs on the market. When evaluating a product make sure that the ingredients are all natural and that the program explains what to expect during the cleansing. Most programs will provide you with step-by-step instructions on when and how to complete the program but the better ones will also provide you with recipes and/or a shopping guide for the foods and drinks that you will need.
A healing cleanse may be completed in a number of ways, depending on your present digestive health and how far you’re ready to jump in. No matter what method you choose to use, the primary goal is to decrease your consumption of chemicals, fat, refined sugar and other substances that are unhealthy. When your body is allowed to heal itself with the help of an all-natural cleanse, you will feel and see the difference in your energy levels, skin clarity and overall health.
