Since Biblical times, people have been fasting and cleansing for many reasons including better health, disease recovery, spiritual enlightenment and political protest. However, in our day and age the most people are not educated on the health benefits fasting and cleansing can provide. Before we can create healthy bodies and minds we must substitute toxic foods with foods high in nutritional value. But before doing that, it is best to allow the body to heal itself through a process of cleansing. This will raise the “life” of the cells, changing them from magnets for disease to strong guardians of health. The person with a toxin-free body and a sound mind is the person unaffected by epidemics.
Cleansing is an excellent way to rid the body of toxicities caused by pesticides, chemicals, parasites, artificial flavors and colors, preservatives, rancid oils, and pollutants that are stored in various organs, cells, and in fat tissue. Symptoms of toxic overload include digestive problems, joint pain, headaches, low energy, allergic reactions, asthma, allergies, anxiety, depression, mental confusion, and disease. Cleansing is an opportunity for new beginnings—to renew, regroup, and recuperate lost energy and health. For optimal health, a cleanse is recommended twice a year—once in the spring and once in the fall, as these are the optimal times for releasing toxins.
A typical body cleanse involves fasting from all solid foods, drinking fresh fruit and vegetable juices, taking specific supplements, performing enemas or having colonics, and doing minimal exercises. It is also advisable to spend as much time as possible resting. Often times, we recommend people get a massage or foot bath while cleansing.
If you have never done a cleanse before, it may seem like a challenge. However, the type of cleanse we suggest to our first time clients, the Mild Total Body Cleanse in Health Search and Rescue by our Holistic Nutritionist Sarah King Feldman, is a better fit for most lifestyles.
