Detox, Fast & Cleanse
Our bodies are like machines; and when machines break down, sometimes we need to take them apart, clean the gears and restart! That's kind of what a fast or modified fast is like for the body. While we can't take our bodies apart, we can provide them a chance to release stored backlogged toxins that may be accumulating in the gut, blood, tissue and cells.
The simple equation for cleansing is to stop intaking all the toxins from diet, environment, and stress, while support our bodies' natural detoxification organs and systems- including the bowels, kidneys, liver, gall bladder and skin. When properly done, the results can be profound- both physically and mental/emotionally.
If you are a fasting skeptic, consider that it's a practice all ancient cultures and religions have employed. Whether by choice or necessity, our genetics are hard-wired for changing eating patterns including periods of fasting.
The need for periods of fasting has become increasingly important because of an unavoidable abundance of chemicals found in our food, water, and environment. Chemicals like pesticides and artificial ingredients in food, heavy metals in water, and harsh chemical cleaners, soaps, and synthetic materials all impart toxins. Over time, these toxins build up in our cells and slow our metabolism, wreak havoc on energy, skin, brain, and can even be at the root of autoimmune problems, cancer, and other seemingly uncurbable conditions. Other symptoms of toxicity include weight loss resistance, slow metabolism, headaches, acne, chronic fatigue syndrome, and reproductive health problems.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you may significantly benefit from a cleanse. We believe that in some cases, a fast or modified fast may be the only way to reverse an incurable or terminal illness.
It's important to pace yourself properly when doing a cleanse. Cleansing too quickly can be dangerous. Some people need to start with a digestive cleanse before moving onto a full body cleanse, and there are medical conditions which contraindicate cleansing without detailed medical supervision.
