Doing a cleanse is like hitting a reset button for your body. It will help to increase your energy levels, balance your hormones, improve digestion, give your adrenals a much needed break, help break cravings, and not to mention beautiful glowing skin.
But what else can you expect from a week or two of cleansing?
Ability to cope with stress
Alcohol, sugar, refined food and caffeine all contribute to adrenal fatigue. As we eliminate these stimulants from our diet, the adrenal glands get a much needed break and reboot. The abundance of nutrients from fresh organic juices, smoothies, and plant-based meals has a nourishing and healing effect on the adrenal glands. Healthy adrenals help the body and mind cope and deal with everyday stress without getting overwhelmed.
As your body releases toxins, it also begins to release layers of emotions. Cleansing is all about getting to those deep rooted toxins and flushing them out of your system. Some toxic feelings such as anxiety, anger and fear may surface, giving you a chance to deal with deep rooted pain. Emotions that are stored in the body can start to manifest into the physical body through aches and pains, creating a stagnant liver, depression, among other serious illnesses. Stretch while taking deep breaths and writing in a journal can help begin the process of healing.
Deeper awareness and mental clarity
When we eat a diet that has healing properties and lessens the burden on our body, we make room in our mind and body for other things. Purification occurs, a clearing out, and this makes room for your mind to be more clear and focused. New ideas start to flow and a problem or situation can be understood from a new and deeper perspective.
Aches and pains subside
This is because you are only eating or drinking alkaline foods. Alkaline is the opposite of acidic. Acidic foods and drinks cause inflammation and swelling in your joints. All disease needs an acidic environment to survive. The goal is to get your body in an alkaline state.
Promotes Healthy Changes
It’s hard to change a long-standing habit, and a cleanse program – no matter how long – is one way to put a wedge between your old ways and your new ones. If you have addictions to sugar, caffeine, fried, or crunchy foods you can use a cleanse to help you kill those cravings. Often if you just try to quit eating those foods or drinking those beverages you’ll have limited success, and go back to your old ways. But if you cleanse the body and replace those foods with healthier choices, you can retrain yourself and be more likely to stick to your new habits. The number one goal of detoxing should be long-term, sustainable change. By undergoing a cleanse, you will not only be supporting your body's natural detoxification pathways, but you will be resetting the way you eat and the choices you make.
