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.
