The word “cleansing” may strike fear into the hearts of many. Depending on your outlook, it can mean many things, to many people. Cleansing & Nutrition has become a multi billion dollar industry and has many long term benefits. So, why should we… cleanse the body? Let’s dive into the problems and solutions and get educated before we say…no thanks.
First of all, I am talking about whole body cleansing. Not just one specific area, like the colon. By cleansing the WHOLE body, we are releasing toxins, stored in fat, that have attacked our body. Toxins are hanging out, in ALL areas to doing damage. Toxins come from lots of everyday things we have in our environment, home & car. Toxins are everywhere. They are in pollution, computers, hairsprays, makeup, cellphones, gasoline, carpeting, and products we use everyday. How did they get there?…. well as you go about your day, you ingest and assimilate them unknowingly. You smell things, you touch things, you eat food. The organs like the liver, pancreas, kidneys, gall bladder, etc, are filtering the inflow of foods, toxins and nutrients storing the good AND the bad.
PCB’s, Antibiotics, Hormones, Toxins, and a plethora of GUNK, are waiting to wreak havoc on our bodies and internal organs and cause what we know as “leaky gut”. This leaky gut can cause cancers, infections and a multiple array of gastrointestinal “crap” to happen, including IBS, irritable bowel syndrome. (Yes, I meant to use that word, crap.) Our fecal waste is the elimination route of these toxins. BUT, we are not eliminating toxins like we are designed to do. We are storing toxins in our FAT, something very foreign to our “operating systems” for our bodies. We are supposed to eliminate them & poop them out. Butt, (pun intended) humans are getting fatter and fatter every year, causing our bodies to become MORE toxic everyday. The FAT CELLS are where the toxins like to live, so the more fat we have, the more toxins we store.
Get the picture yet?… That’s why Cleansing is so important. I was not aware of any of this until I did my own in-depth research and actually tried some cleanses. I now am a walking talking library of information on this topic. The general public does not know this stuff….nor do they care, unless it affects them. And studies now conclusively show…1 out of 2 of us WILL get cancer, and get VERY sick, unless we do something NOW about eliminating these harmful toxins from our bodies.
So, the more fat we release, and eliminate from our bodies…the healthier we become. It’s pretty simple. Mostly it’s a matter of the nutrition and food we put into our bodies. Our society and world over the past 50 + years has produced fast foods & the “quick, grab and go” meals. We have all become used to stopping or eating on the go at the many fast food chains. We are consuming burgers, fries, and over processed foods with unhealthy results, not realizing how bad they really are or what is happening to us in the process. Did you know?… An 8 0z. carbonated beverage can PARALIZE your immune system for up to 12 hours….robbing your body of calcium, which shuts down the body from doing it’s job. I didn’t either! Most nutritionists know this, try to tell us, but we don’t want to listen. Humans like sodas and carbonated beverages. Well, after finding this out, I quit. No more carbonation for me. Many of us already know it also robs our bones of the calcium it needs, creating osteoporosis, too.
Most of the foods we eat nowadays is nutritionally bankrupt, not providing us with what we need. The soils we raise commercial foods in, is void of the organic compounds and micro organisms that the vegetables and fruits need to thrive in. That’s why people are looking at buying ORGANIC foods…because they know, the nutritional content is higher in these foods. These ORGANIC fields and orchards have not had the pesticides sprayed onto them…..which in turn get into the soils to kill the living organisms…that we need to produce healthy foods. It is a vicious cycle. Produce more food to help feed the world vs nutritionally bankrupt food = disaster. We are immobilized by lack of knowledge, and based in fear.
This vicious cycle is literally KILLING us. Back in the 1950’s the cancer rate was 1 in 12. Today, the cancer rate is 1 in 2 according to some studies. With all the money and research being spent, we have not slowed down the rate, at which we are getting sick. We have not yet come to grips, that WHAT we are eating & NOT EATING, and the problem is slowly killing us. What we need to know is this: Isagenix & others, have products out there to help us.
We need to get off the hamster wheel and re-think what our bodies are craving. They are really craving GOOD NUTRITION… not junk food and sodas. Our bodies are well designed machines that thrive on building lean muscle with pure proteins. We need water, exercise, nutritionally dense foods. Our bodies need to be able to eliminate toxins…and they will, if we give them that opportunity.
So, how do we get that opportunity? Where do we look for cleansing products? There are so many products out on the market. Many that do a lot of different things, all in different price categories. I have found one in particular that I like, and will share it with you. It is called “CLEANSE FOR LIFE” by Isagenix. This product is designed to cleanse the whole body. You have 3 different ways to use it; a simple 1oz everyday, a moderate 16 oz one day a week, or a deep 2 day 32oz cleanse every 2 weeks. The product tastes great. You drink it like you would a glass of juice. The amazing results follow and you feel healthier, just knowing you are doing something GOOD for your body. There is no running to or being close to a bathroom, like some people think. Most people start with the 1 day, 16 oz a week cleanse, to really let the body know you are “cleaning house” on a certain day. This allows your organs to REST, during the 24 hour cleansing fast, while the products are doing what they are intended to do. You drink 4 oz of cleanse, 4 times a day, for a total of 16 oz. You are also allowed a few “approved snacks” too…but that’s it. This cleansing day, is to clean out the GUNK!. It’s so vital and important to your overall health and wellness that I highly recommend EVERYONE do it. A bottle is approximately $32.00 which is only $1.00 per oz. A small price to pay for being healthy and doing something good for YOU. The benefits of CLEANSE FOR LIFE are so vast and intricate that it’s hard to go into all the details… but it is wonderfully liberating to know YOU can help to fix your own problems and that YOU are part of the solutions. Nutritionalls dense fods do make a difference in our health and wellbeing. Enjoy cleansing for peace of mind, body & soul.
