Change of seasons are a great time to cleanse and detox! Let's start this fall off right! There are many cleanses to choose from. It's important to choose the best cleanse for your body and a lot of that can depend on two things: if you have cleansed before or not, and if you are super busy or have some time off.
If you are a first time cleanser the whole food cleanse would be a great option. Basically, you are getting rid of any packaged foods (and I mean ANYTHING in a package), red meats, dairy, alcohol, and caffine and incorporating lots of organic veggies and fruits and fish and/or chicken if you need meat in your diet, herbal teas and lots of water!. You'll be amazed how good you feel just getting rid of the junk! Your body will thank you too! This cleanse is also great for people that want to cleanse but can't take time off work!
If you have done a lot of cleansing before you may be able to choose a cleanse that has as period of juice fasting. Juice fasts are great because they give your body a much needed break. Juice fasting consists of organic fruit and veggi juices (not smoothies), herbal teas, lots of water ( to help flush the body), and hot veggi or bone broth. Some people vary these juice fasts from 3-10 days and some people do a whole food cleanse and go into a period of juice fast for 3-5 days. The most important thing with any type of fasting is going in and coming out of the fast slowly. Meaning, slowly decreasing and incorporating the grains, nuts, and meats again. Usually on a juice fast people need to do it over a weekend or have a little time off to rest. So it probably wouldn't be the best thing to do if you need to be alert or give presentations at work. :)
Always talk your health care professional about cleansing if you are under a doctor's care or on any medications.

Feeling tired and sluggish? Sometimes summer is the best time to cleanse, it's nice outside, fresh food sounds amazing, and you really really want to fit into the new bikini! Well here is an idea how to go about a summer cleanse!
1. Consult with your doctor to make sure a cleanse is the right thing for you to be doing especially if you are on medications or under a doctor's care.
2. Gather the delicious foods you will need for your cleanse. Like fresh fruits and veggies and herbal teas.
3. Start eating less gradually a couple days before your fast or cleanse. This is called a pre-cleanse, you may also use this time to purge coffee or alcohol. Your body needs time to adjust to less food so the pre and post cleanse is very important.
4.On day 1 of your cleanse eat lots of fresh fruits, juices, water , and herbal teas. Try to avoid bananas.
5.Try to avoid food on day 2. Drink lots of herbal teas and water. Some of the best teas to drink are black walnut and dandelion.
6. On day 3 keep drinking your herbal teas and water but also add veggies. You can prepare them anyway you'd like; steamed, raw, juiced, or blanched!
7. On day 4 try vegetable broth, herbal teas, and water. You can also add vegetables to this day if you need to!
8. On day 5 start with fresh fruits and fruit juices, you can have veggies for lunch and keep dinner light!
9. Post cleanse by slowly incorporating grains, nuts and whole foods back into your diet.
Happy Cleansing! :)
You've heard of colon hydrotherapy and wonder if it's something that would be good to do? There are several things to consider. You need to consider your health history, bowel movements, and indications for colon hydrotherapy.
Your health history is important when considering colonics because there are many contraindications for colon hydrotherapy that may require a doctor prescription. You do not want to do colon hydrotherapy if you have/had a contraindication unless approved by your health care professional. The contraindications for colon hydrotherapy are:
If you are under a medical providers care or on any prescription medication, you should always get clearance from them first! Some medication can cause the colon walls to become thin and colonics can dilute medication in the body. You should always get colonic from a certified and trained therapist. Make sure they are certified with organizations like the International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy and the National Board of Colon Hydrotherapy.

Cleansing is important because when we are a society of constantly consuming. Eating for celebration, get togethers, and socialization. There is food everywhere we go and everything we do! By consuming so much, most of us, are not giving our bodies a chance to catch up! This can lead to overloading the body with too much to digest and process and can cause impaction or autointoxication. Autointoxication is the poisoning of the body by toxic matter generated within. If we consume more than we are going to the bathroom then partially digested food is sitting in the intestines and putrefying, causing autointoxication. This is why fasting/cleansing can be an instrumental part of keeping our bodies clean and healthy.
Colonics can also help eliminate or shorten detox symptoms from cleansing. If you have any kind of medical condition or on any medication please consult with a doctor or nutritionist before starting a cleanse.
