Cleansing – why, what, how?

Posted by in News on Tuesday, June 30 2015.


Why do we need to cleanse?

Our bodies are built to eliminate toxins and waste naturally and they cleanse, detoxify and heal imbalances every single day, but even if you happen to be a pillar of exercise, purity and clean living, (which, let’s face it, most of us are not) you cannot help but be exposed to unavoidable environmental pollutants on a daily basis. We all understand the stresses that regular restaurant dining, take-out food, late-night meals and alcoholic drinks put on our natural cleansing systems but it has been estimated that, on average, we can all have at least 5 – 10lbs of accumulated toxic waste from sources like prescription drugs, cleaning products, cosmetic and hygiene products, tobacco, caffeine, car pollution, impure water and invisible chemicals, not to mention the preservatives and additives that are found in most of foods we eat nowadays.
With all of this going on daily our bodies can start to have a difficult time keeping up. Over time the toxins can build up and can cause and create a number of illnesses and disruptions to our natural body processes. The results can be imbalances such as aches, allergies, poor digestion and weight gain, or even an ongoing sense of fatigue, as well as heart disease and other degenerative diseases of excess like gout.

What is cleansing?

People have understood the need for cleansing and detoxing for millennia, long before processed foods, environmental impurities and daily mental stresses were the norm. Today, juice cleansing detox programs are being rediscovered by millions of people who want to energize their bodies, look and feel younger and be more resistant to disease. In very simple terms cleansing is like hitting your body’s reset button, giving it a little helping hand to eliminate some of the harmful bacteria and re-balance your internal eco-system. An organic juice cleanse can benefit you physiologically, aesthetically and spiritually.
The juices give your body pure nutrients, vitamins, and minerals which it can absorb quickly and help it along with detoxification, the digestive process is eased and energy is able to be sent to other areas of the body, helping to heal, protect and boost your cells from the inside out. Your skin will both look and feel healthier, the bloat that is caused by alcohol, yeast and sugar is reduced, your immunity is enhanced, you will have increased energy and mental clarity – all of which can only lead to a happier and healthier you.
A cleanse can also help you to break any unhealthy eating patterns and cravings you may find yourself stuck in.
