We need to remove the garbage that accumulates inside of our bodies just like we remove the trash that collects inside of our homes. Think of air pollution, pesticides in your water, lawn, and food, antibiotics consumed directly or in food, fake sugars, GMO foods, and poisons that we are exposed to every day from our cleaning agents, skin products, shower water, etc.. It is important to rid the body of as many of these toxins as possible for overall health. I firmly believe sickness and disease can only occur if the body is toxic or deficient…
…And that is where detoxing with juice comes in! Speed toxic elimination, and flood the body with high-dose, organic vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. There is little in this world you can do for 24-72 hours that will benefit your health as much as an organic juice cleanse will.
It is difficult to know how toxic your body is without performing pricey hair/stool sample tests. However, there are basic indicators that can serve as clues to indicate when it is appropriate to begin a cleanse routine. If you are overweight, constipated, taking prescription medications, sick, or eating processed and fast foods, you likely have toxins and can greatly benefit from a juice cleanse. Toxins and poisons have a high affinity for fat – that is where they reside in the body. The nervous system is 90% fat, which means a higher potential for neurological conditions when there are high levels of toxins in the body. So, at the very least, you should try to cleanse at least once a year to help your liver work more efficiently. Whether you decide to complete a 24 hour or a 14 day cleanse, you will be doing your body a huge favor: Blood Purification, Intestinal (Gut) Healing, Increased Functionality and Detoxification of Digestive Organs, Alcohol and Drug Detoxification, More restful sleep, Healthier Skin, Reduced allergies, Anti-aging, and Mental clarity.
An important part of starting a successful cleanse is getting yourself in the right mindset. Consciously choosing to make yourself healthier, being ready to face cravings, challenges and mood changes, and reminding yourself why you are doing a detox in the first place, is half the battle.
