I’ve gotten a lot of questions about cleansing and detoxing throughout the years; What are the benefits? How does it work? Is it healthy?
Here is the scoop:
Toxins enter our bodies every day through food, water, air, cleaning products, soap and skin care products just to name a few. Everything you eat, drink, and absorb into your body (through your skin) is broken down by your liver, purified in the kidneys, and eliminated through your digestive system and skin (with sweat).
If this miraculous cleansing system becomes sluggish and over worked, our bodies can not break down and utilize all of the powerful vitamins, minerals and nutrients we need to feel amazing, optimize energy levels, and maintain a youthful, radiant glow!
I do not promote juice-only fasts. However, I do see the value of a Whole Foods Cleanse - Giving the digestive system a break by eliminating foods that cause inflammation in the body.
In other words, the goal of a Whole Foods Cleanse is not a week of starvation! The goal is to simply clean up the diet and eat as well as possible, (bye-bye lattes for a few days!) It is a powerful kick start towards positive and lasting change for your health and your body.
Here are the parameters:
No gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol, processed foods, added sugar, while cleansing. Reduce coffee to run cup a day.
While this may sound like a lot to let go of at first glance, the results will be worth it; The lightness and energy you’ve been longing for, weight loss, glowing skin and finally experiencing what it feels like to live in a clean body.
Benefits of a Whole Foods Cleanse include:
- Aid in the elimination of toxins from your body
- Reduce inflammation
- Recognize and overcome sugar cravings
- Restore good bacteria in your gut
- Kick start weight loss
- Restore your body’s natural energy levels
The greatest thing about a Whole Foods Cleanse is the ability to enjoy nutritious meals, soups, juices and smoothies while not starving the body or giving up food completely.
