Cleansing the Body for a Detox Weight Loss!
Cleansing: How to Kickstart your Alkaline Lifestyle
Due to the highly acidic diet that most people in the UK are used to, our bodies urgently need to be cleaned up! It is important to do a cleanse to rid the body of impurities, normalise digestion and metabolism and realign the body to an alkaline pH level of 7.365.
Cleansing eliminates acid wastes and negative microforms throughout the body, detoxifying the blood, tissues and digestive systems.
Due to the removal of so many toxins and waste from the body it is not uncommon for someone on the cleanse to feel worse before they become better. Symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness and excess mucus can occur, however, it is important to remember that this is simply the body trying to flush out the excess toxins. The levels of 'detox symptoms' varies from individual to individual and it is important to ensure that whilst cleansing you must remain totally hydrated with alkaline water and green drinks as this will allow the toxins to flush out more quickly.
How To Cleanse - The Basics: Step by Step
Cleansing is not a complicated process, however there are a number of simple rules that should be adhered to in order to maximise its effectiveness.
It is absolutely essential during the cleanse that you consume at least four litres of high quality, alkalizing water each day. The toxins that the body is trying to expel will attempt to leave the body in a number of different ways, including through producing increase mucus, through the skin (spots) and through the waste we produce. By remaining fully hydrated and alkalised the body is given the opportunity to rapidly flush out toxins ensuring that 'detox symptoms' are minimised while refreshing your body with the fluids it needs on a daily basis.
During the cleanse the most important thing to remember is that this is not a fast! The cleanse is quite the opposite as it is designed to feed your body with all of the nutrients that will aid repair and give the body the energy and replenishment it needs during the cleansing process. The quickest and most efficient way to alkalise and deliver nutrients to the body is through liquids as this is a form that allows the absorption of nutrients most effectively ensuring minimal waste. Raw soups, vegetable juices, green drinks are all highly alkalizing and vital to the cleanse.
Supplements and Essential Fatty Acids
Although it is not absolutely essential to use supplements during a cleanse, it is highly recommended. The two most beneficial supplements during the cleanse are the Supergreens powder (or capsules) and the Prime pH drops (or alternate brands such as Inner Balance). These two supplements provide not only high fibre, protein, alkaline salts, and a vast array of vitamins and nutrients but are also anti-yeast, antifungal and anti-mycotoxic, making the water that you drink far more alkalizing.
Essential oils (ensure they are cold pressed oils such as Udo's Choice), including omega 3 and omega 6 are important in mobilising stored fats and toxins within the body, providing a wide range of benefits including: lower blood pressure, cholesterol and risk of stroke or heart disease increased weight loss through an increase of the metabolic rate and fat burn-off, killing of cancer cells, prevention of liver damage, improved hair, nails and skin, creation of a healthy environment for human cells, particularly brain cells, nerve synapses, visual receptors, adrenal glands and sex glands.
A good multi-vitamin is also recommended which contains a good range of minerals and preferably alkaline salts. Do ensure that any supplement you do take is vegan friendly and does not contain yeast.
A Rough Guide...
A cleanse can last anything from 1 to 7 days and beyond depending upon your level of health (although it is recommended to seek advice if undertaking a long-term cleanse). It is not a complicated process and the most important thing to remember is that this is not a fast - eat until you are satisfied! The cleanse is quite the opposite to a fast as it is designed to feed your body with all of the nutrients that will aid repair and give the body the energy and replenishment it needs during the cleansing process. The cleanse will alkalise and super-hydrate your body setting you on the journey to optimal living health.
