What is Cleansing?

Cleansing is the process of ridding the body of toxins, heavy metals, and parasites that are present in our body. It mainly addresses the detoxification of the body’s vital organs that are responsible for the absorption of nutrients and the removal of waste byproducts such as the liver, kidneys, the gallbladder, and digestive tract. These organs play a major role in our body’s operating system as follows:

  • The Liver is the largest organ in the body and hence has the most work such as excretion of toxic waste in the form of cholesterol and drugs, it metabolizes fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, stores vitamins and minerals and detoxifies and purifies the blood.
  • The Kidneys control the production of red blood cells, removes waste products from the blood, balances the body’s fluids, and regulates the body's acid contents, salt, and potassium levels.
  • The Gallbladder stores bile, produced by the liver and it is important for the digestion of food, 
  • The Digestive Tract is responsible for the breakdown of food into molecules which are then absorbed into the body in the form of nutrients and minerals.

Why we need to cleanse:

Due to the unhealthy consumption of processed foods, fatty junk foods, low-fibre foods, microwave depleted meals and carbonated drinks, depletes the body’s mechanism and it can no longer function at its best when it comes to digestion and absorption of nutrients. 

That is why many people suffer from an inconsistent bowel movement, indigestion, bloating, food allergies and sensitivities, irritable bowel syndromes, heartburn, and obesity because the body is incapable of ridding itself of all the accumulated toxic waste. This not only poisons the gut, it damages the other vital organs too.

A body cleanse helps this overworked organs of the body return to their normal working capacity.

Your body has a way of letting you know when something is amiss. Unfortunately, most of the times these signs go unnoticed or completely ignored, which can be detrimental to your wellbeing. In many known cases, one might suffer from recurring symptoms of the same illness and even a trip to the doctors and copious amounts of medicine do nothing to help or alleviate the symptom. Very many people have ignored minor cold symptoms by thinking it an allergic reaction or hay fever. This is an indication that your immune system is low if not non-existent. You know your body best and you are in the position to help yourself. You need a cleanse if you are exhibiting the following physical signs or symptoms:

  1. You are moody or constantly fatigued.
  2. You suffer from insomnia and often disturbed sleep patterns.
  3. You are constantly bloated or suffer from Irritable bowel syndrome.

  5. You have constant infections such acne, itchy skin conditions and Candida
  6. You are retaining fluids.
  7. You are suffering from gallbladder issues.

  12. You have an explained craving, especially for sugar.
  13. Excessive urination.
  14. Dehydration.

If you are showing more than five signs on the above list, this means that your liver needs a cleanse, your gut is backed up with toxins and needs a flush and your system has slowed down and needs a boost. A good body cleanse is as good as giving your insides a thorough scrub. It is filled with essential minerals, nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that your vital body organs need for an optimum functionality.

  1. You were fatigued before but you are showing even more serious signs of chronic fatigue.
  2. You frequent the bathroom more than normal. A normal toilet break consists of 3 – 5 visits. Be wary if you go over that.
