Cleansing has become a buzz word these days. There are many cleansing protocols out there so how do we navigate to the one for us? We’ll go into that in a second…
First let’s talk about why we need to cleanse regularly now more than ever before.
Most of us live in areas of increasing toxicity and even the most remote places in the world are touched by the hand of man. We are exposed to a plethora of chemicals, bacteria and other harmful pathogens on a daily basis that are present in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and the personal care products we use. Although the human body is able to handle a good amount of these foreign invaders, over time, the internal organs, skin and other body systems can become overloaded with toxins, which can lead to illness and even chronic disease.
I’m sure you have heard that you are what you eat before. The higher truth is that we are what we assimilate. Unfortunately, in this fast-paced society that we live in, most people’s diet is overly processed and extremely low in vitamins and nutrients. Our digestive and immune systems have to to work overtime constantly in order to process everything we put in.
Just as we clean the outside of our bodies, it is important to occasionally clean the inside of your body and flush out all of the contaminants.
A whole body cleanse can do wonders for the body by removing toxins from vital organ systems and restoring the body to its natural balance.
What most people don’t know is that 90 percent of all diseases start in the colon. You will hear many people say that they’re not worried about cleansing their colons because they are regular. But even the most regular individual doesn’t flush everything from the body. We can literally have 5 to 7 years of old food residing in our colons which causes infection and disease. That’s why it’s very important to give your digestion system a break at least few times a year.
Your digestive system is as important to you as an engine is to a car. If for any reason the engine does not work properly the other parts of your car will have difficulty to work in an orderly manner.
Now that you understand the necessity of cleansing the question of what cleanse needs to be answered. You will find many options but the right one for you starts with this question:
Why am I cleansing?
Is it to detox the body from excess eating or partying? Is it to lose weight and reset our metabolism? Is there disease in the body that needs to be healed? Parasites?
Our answer is to clean our body and balance all systems. What’s your reason?
Once you have identified why, it’s time to understand where you are physically so you can accurately navigate where you are going. There are important tools to utilize in understanding the current state of the body. None are more important than a blood test and a consultation with a natural practitioner, trusted doctor, or nutritionist.
Blood testing and acupuncture are our starting points in the quest to balance our body.
November 25th 2012 we started a 30-day cleanse and would like to invite you on this journey with us. Not to do it with us (because your protocol may be different) but to learn from our experience so YOU can effectively choose the right approach.
