A Cleansing Diet
Today we live in such a busy, fast paced world, that it can sometimes be difficult to sit down and prepare the healthy foods we need. But sadly, our bodies pay the price for all the years we spend eating unhealthy but convenient foods. To make matters worse, our environment is a lot harsher than it used to be. The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places we live and work all bombard our body with toxins and chemicals. Considering this, it is only a matter of time before these toxins overwhelm our bodies. This toxicity typically leads to health problems later in life. And these problems often appear impossible to tackle because western medicine has a habit of treating symptoms, instead of the root cause.
Common symptoms can include: fatigue, headaches, allergy symptoms, aches and pains, and digestive problems. These symptoms begin to start as the body becomes so overwhelmed with toxins that it can no longer perform necessary functions in an efficient manner. In order to cleanse your body of these toxins, you must use a dotox program. Fasting is a very old, and well known method for cleansing the body. Despite the media presenting it as a means to loose weight, fasting is primarily used for cleansing and detoxifying the body. Fasting, however is a very severe meathod of cleansing and can be difficult and problematic for many people. A much simpler and easier method is by starting a cleansing diet.
It is important to know that a cleansing diet works in 2 key ways. First, it stops the intake of any more harmful foods, and second, it helps cleanse and purge the body of all the excess build up that has collected over the years. Before you start, it is a good idea to understand how the food you’ve been eating has affected your body over time. Many foods that we think are healthy often have the opposite affect. After all, we often favor convenience over a truly healthy, balanced, and nutritious meal.
So, it is very important to eliminate foods that contain toxins from your diet. The general idea is that once you stop ingesting foods that contain toxins, or are difficult for the body to process, your body can begin to work on what has already been built up. During a cleansing diet, you should stick to a diet consisting of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, pasta, rice, beans, and herbs. You should stick to organic products, as they haven’t been injected with harmful chemicals in order to make them grow bigger and faster. So, the more natural your diet, the better.
Eating vegetables is about as close as your body can get to being natural as possible. However cooking vegetables tends to rob them of their nutritional value. So you can either eat them raw or lightly steamed. Again, it is important to choose organic foods and produce. Non-organic foods typically contain harmful chemicals and pesticides. So you definitely want to steer clear of them. Try to consume a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to ensure you are getting the essential vitamins and nutrients. Also, soy products are a great source of protein.
Next you’ll want to help your body eliminate the build up of toxins. One of the simplest ways of doing this is to drink a lot of water. Water is a simple and effective way of helping your body to flush out toxins from your system. This is why you may notice people who drink a lot of water have excellent looking skin. Drinking a gallon of water a day will definitely be a big help during your cleanse.
Also, you can drink herbal tea, natural lemonade, and other 100% juices. This means you should be eliminating soda, coffee, and other sources of caffeine from your diet. Exercise is also an excellent way to help purge your body of toxins. When you exercise, your body naturally sweats out these toxins from your body. Visiting a sauna can also have the same effect as it forces your body to sweat. The length of time you should continue with your cleansing diet depends on your body and individual needs. Unlike other diets, a cleansing diet is healthy and natural. A cleansing diet can me maintained indefinitely, because it provides your body with all the essential things it needs, while helping your purge and eliminate toxins.
The benefits of a cleansing diet is both short and long term in nature. At first you will likely have more energy, clear skin, and an overall healthy feeling. Long term benefits can include reduced risk of illnesses, and cancer.
