The Benefits of Cleansing

The Benfits of doing a cleanse have an effect on your whole body and mind.  Often we feel tired and sluggish and don't really sleep that well.  Working with a licenced practitioner to find a program that is geared to your needs you will be better able to  lose weight, end Chronic pain, and Fatigue.

What is Cleansing?

Cleansing is the natural process of ridding the body of toxins, heavy metals, and parasites that are present. 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. This is something that your body does naturally, however there are times when supplements and foods will help improve the process. 

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 help our body eliminate toxins:

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

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

A cleanse helps to bring the body back to homeostasis/balance.

Benefits of a Cleanse:

  1. Rid the body of harmful toxins, metals, and accumulated waste in the form of fecal matter in your gut.
  2. Removing excess fecal matter, healing the digestive system will improve your ability to lose weight.
  3. A cleanse will maximize your body’s intake of healthy nutrients and minerals that are important for the production of energy and you will feel invigorated and energized.
  4. The effects of a cleanse will leave you feeling less bloated, and may even help you to identify food sensitivities.
  5. You will have improved digestion which will then in turn eliminate cravings.
  6. Inflammation is your body’s reaction to unnatural substances that invade it. Chronic inflammation can lead to Chronic pain such as migraines, autoimmune diseases and degenerative conditions. A cleanse will rid your body of the toxins responsible for inflammation.
  7. A number of lifestyle choices and factors such as smoking, drinking, pesticides, stress, lack of exercise can contribute to excess Fatigue and Lack of sleep. 
  8. People who suffer from Brain fog often feel confused, forgetful, and lack focus due to an imbalance in your body which can be a medical or lifestyle related. A healthy brain is the first line of defense against mental disorders and depression. A cleanse will get rid of the toxins in your body accumulated through an unhealthy diet. At this point in time we are well aware of the connection between gut health and brain health.  
  9. Infections such as Candida, ie. vaginal yeast infections, fungal infections, skin rashes are very common in people who are overweight, people with weakened immune systems, people with Inflammatory disorders, and diabetes. 

 

Your body has a way of letting you know when something is out of balance. Unfortunately, most of the time these signs go unnoticed or completely ignored. In many cases, one might suffer from recurring symptoms of the same illness and even a trip to the doctor will  do nothing to help or alleviate the symptoms.  You may benefit from a cleanse if you are exhibiting the following:

  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.
  4. You are overweight and resistant to weight loss.
  5. You have constant infections such as acne, itchy skin and yeast infections.
  6. You are retaining fluid.
  7. You are suffering from gallbladder issues, or have had your gall bladder removed.
  8. You have an Autoimmune disease.
  9. Congested sinuses or repeated sinus infections.
  10. Bad breath, especially if your tongue has a white coating.
  11. Excessive overheating and sweating.
  12. You have cravings, especially for sugar.
  13. Excessive urination.
  14. Dehydration.
  15. Yellowing of the eyes due to excessive alcohol.

 

Beware of  products or programs that are promising unrealistic results. A good cleanse should not have a  negative response in your body.

A healthy cleanse program is matched with a healthy diet and a supplements suggested by a licenced practitioner that is aware of your specific needs and current medications. 

If you are ready to take back your health, let's get started and get you back to feeling vibrant, refreshed and focused.
