Maybe you’re reading this blog because you know you need a reset to give you a flood of new energy or maybe you’d just like to lighten up your diet with delicious soups, smoothies, and salads.
Spring is the perfect time to give the body a tune up.
Dis-ease originates in four ways: congestion, stagnation, depletion, and deficiency.
When toxins pile up, as they easily can with modern life, the body has to work harder to give the same output. This doesn't leave much room for energetic days or feelings of vitality.
Environmental toxins are greater than ever. The stress of fast-paced lives, poor-quality food (especially meat and oils), and genetics all come into play to slow us down by putting an unnecessary burden on the gut, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and kidneys.
Just like we change the oil in our cars routinely, we must bi-annually do the same thing for our organs and blood that work so hard for us every minute of every day.
By spending seven days to systematically and gently reboot and detox your body with food and juice, you could be preventing gallstones or pancreatitis down the road…
You could be preventing leaky gut and autoimmune disease…
You could be keeping your brain sharp to avoid neurological degeneration.
In essence, you retain the high quality of your life and enjoy the things that mean the most.
Modern life can leach our vitamins and minerals, and just as a car doesn’t run well on fumes, neither do humans.
When you cleanse with high-quality foods, you are also taking care of the other half of dis-ease, depletion, and deficiency.
By filling your tank with vital micronutrients that sustain life and support organ health, this creates the win-win situation that leads to glowing skin, abundant energy, balanced weight, and the glorious, priceless, precious gift of true health.
We recommend you plan and prep for a cleanse the week or two before by following these ten steps:
- Reschedule your happy hours
- Cut current alcohol consumption in half
- Avoid gluten and refined flours as much as possible
- Drink 16 oz. warm lemon water first thing upon waking
- Reduce current caffeine intake in half
- Add 1 extra serving of green leafy veggies to your diet daily
- Eliminate fried foods
- Decrease sugar intake
- Eat breakfast that contains protein and fat within an hour of waking
- Tell your friends and family so they can support you and maybe cleanse with you
By the time the cleanse comes, your body will be more than ready to soak up all that nutrition and to let go of accumulated toxins.
I've experienced many cleanses in my life, and I've either felt too hungry to carry out my daily responsibilities (like I was consuming too much sugar in the juice) or that my digestive system couldn't tolerate all the raw food.
So I set out to create a cleanse that I could do while operating at my same level of daily activity without feeling hungry or throwing off my blood sugar (or nervous system), including warming spices and proper enzyme balance to support the digestive process.
Having enough protein and fat during a cleanse to support the thyroid, adrenal glands, and metabolism is also essential.
