The body is an amazing machine which filters out toxins that have become trapped in various organs of your body. The main detoxifying organs are the liver, colon, kidneys and lungs. A body cleanse helps to give these major organs a break and get rid of some of the toxins that have built up. If you search on the internet for directions on how to do a cleanse you will find many, many different opinions and recommendations. After you have read through a few you will have a better idea as to which ones are reasonable for you to be successful doing. After you decide which one you want to do you are on your way to a healthier body.
When your body is overrun with toxins you can feel sluggish, achy, and tired. When your detoxifying organs are all functioning within normal levels you shouldn’t need a cleanse. But if your diet is not as healthy as it should be then you probably could benefit from a cleanse. Some cleanses out there have been around for decades and there are safer and more healthy cleanses to try today. It is important to make sure your body has at least the calories it needs each day so it doesn’t go into starvation mode and start holding onto everything.
Juice cleansing is a very healthy way to cleanse but you will have to purchase, wash and cut up a large amount of healthy foods every day. A juice cleanse can be only juicing or a combination of juicing and raw, whole foods. With a juice cleanse you should be able to consume enough calories during the day so your body doesn’t go into starvation mode. Smoothies can also be interspersed throughout a cleanse for some added nutrients.
Fasting is extreme and should be monitored by a professional. You can eliminate food and only drink water or there are some fasts that you don’t ingest anything including water. Fasting has been done for hundreds of years if not longer for the physical benefits as well as the spiritual benefits. You should monitor your own body along with the professional you have chosen so that no harm is done during the fast. A body cleanse is recommended three to four times a year to eliminate the toxins that build up in your body. You can use a variety of cleanses throughout the year or stick to the one you really like.
