Life is a constant balancing act between good and bad, from the things we eat to the company we keep. While perfection is impossible, we can strive for optimal health by supporting the body’s natural processes. A body detox is designed to promote the body’s most basic self-cleansing functions.
Cleansing Periodically to Detoxify
One way to gently kick-start your body’s natural detoxification process is with an annual or periodic cleansing regimen. Think of it as an internal ‘spring cleaning’ to flush accumulated impurities from your body. Just like you might pressure wash your house every Spring, cleansing once a year can promote the health of your colon and liver, organs that play a significant role in body detox.
Why Detox the Liver?
The liver is your body’s main blood filtration organ, and it works hard to make sure that toxins introduced to your body are properly taken care of. At the same time, it is possible to overwhelm the liver, compromising its ability to do its job.
Colonix® Advanced Internal Cleansing Program has been the most popular colon cleanse program since 1998 – with over 2 million programs sold. Cleanse to detoxify your body and flush out waste matter naturally.
Why Cleanse with Fiber?
Fiber plays an essential role in the Colonix Cleanse Program, as it should. Research shows that a healthy diet includes 20 to 40 mg of fiber daily, although most Americans are getting much less than that. Although the human body can’t digest dietary fiber, it is a very important part of a colon cleanse because it: provides bulk to your diet, helps prevent constipation by moving food through the intestines; and can help lower cholesterol.
The use of herbs and botanicals to help cleanse the body dates back thousands of years. In fact, in India the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda began approximately 3,500 years ago. Like the modern cleanse, Ayurveda relies upon an intimate knowledge of the natural healing elements and maintaining balance within the human body.
A detox can be a natural path to better choices in exercise and eating well. Many also find that while detoxing it’s a good time to evaluate all aspects of health, to be an active driver rather than a passive consumer. To optimize your detox try to:
- Eat organic, raw foods rich with antioxidants
- Nourish the body with vitamins, minerals and herbs to support liver and colon health
- Drink plenty of water to help flush out impurities
- Use all natural products
- Quit toxic habits like smoking and drinking too much caffeine
- Avoid “toxic” relationships and focus energy on positive interactions
