I'm pretty sure I'm not giving away any secrets when I tell you that there are a lot of chemicals around us today.
In the foods we eat, the air we breathe and even the water we drink (not to mention in our clothes) we come into contact with a lot of chemicals all the time. As you can imagine, these chemicals can build up and therefore doing a detoxifying cleanse can help us stay healthier.
Of course, we have a lot of control over what we come into contact with. While we may not have much control in what is in the air or in our food we can make better choices in the things we put in our bodies.
Don't add to the pollution you are putting into your body by drinking alcohol or smoking. Also, cut down on the foods that you eat that you probably shouldn't be eating.
Fried foods, overly processed junk foods and foods high in fat are good things to stay away from. Think of eating more whole foods instead of processed foods.
Also, eat more fruits and vegetables and drink more water. There are some simple things you can do to make sure you body gets fewer toxins which may mean that you will need a detoxifying cleanse less often.
One of the most common types of cleanse is the juice diet cleanse. This process is quite easy for anyone to do: you simply drink a juice recipe throughout your day. You don't eat any solid foods while you are doing the cleanse.
The average length of time for the cleanse if from 1 to 3 days. During that time you will drink this juice mixture throughout your day. After several days your body will have purged itself of any unwanted toxins.
There are many variations of this juice recipe online. Many of them will contain some odd sounding ingredients such as Cayenne pepper or lemon juice. Follow the recipes though because the ingredients are specifically designed to provide you with nutrition while allowing your body to purge itself of toxins.
As always, consult with your doctor before you decide to undertake any type of cleanse or start taking any type of herbs. Most people think that herbs are safe, and they are, but that doesn't meant that they may not interact with some prescription medications you are taking. Talk to your doctor first.
Many people have reported achieving wonderful outcomes as a result of doing an herbal cleanse. Things such as constipation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels have all been shown to have been positively impacted by a cleanse and there are a lot of people who highly recommend doing a cleanse.
Herbal remedies have been around since the start of recorded history. Many cultures still rely on them today. If you want to keep your body functioning to it's fullest potential, you may want to consider using some of these remedies yourself.
If you think that you may benefit from doing an detoxifying cleanse once or twice a year, and your doctor says you can, then keep some of this information in mind. Good luck.
