Have you ever heard your mom or wife complain that she is tired, bloated, have difficulty sleeping, food cravings or weight gain? You’re probably saying, a definitive yes and for the most part we all feel these things pretty much most of the time. Why? Well our bodies are overburdened with toxins and processed foods that cause everything to work harder. Doing a cleanse helps resets your body and internal organs so that everything functions more smoothly and efficiently and if you follow the program you may see a positive change in weight and overall well being.
There are many cleanses out there to choose from, but if you don’t want to add insult to injury, don’t suggest a weight loss cleanse, rather one that will help detoxify and purify the mind and body. Programs like Standard Process are great because you are not fasting or just juicing, you can eat food, but you are limiting the types of foods that provide challenges to your body – things like meat, dairy, wheat, eggs, etc that are often high allergy foods. Once you have gone through the program – it’s about 21 days you can slowly start adding back all the restricted foods – ideally leave off the ones you shouldn’t have anyway like cakes, cookies, excessive alcohol.
