Cleansing for Weight Loss

With the resolution of losing weight, many question the option of cleansing or detoxing the body. There are many ways, with many benefits to cleansing your body.

The first step in cleansing is to decide just what kind of cleanse you want to do. There are many different ways to detox. First, decide whether your looking for a total body cleanse, or if you wish to target a certain organ, such as the kidney or liver. Also, some cleanses require you to fast.

The Master Cleanse, or Lemonade Diet as it is sometimes called is a total body cleanse that requires you to fast for at least 10 days. Combining organic lemon juice, grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper with water, will sustain you for those 10 days while your organs are allowed to rest and flush out the toxins that have built up over time. Again this cleans does require a fast, although you may drink herbal teas if desired. An important note, the organic lemon juice must be derived from organic lemons. Buying organic lemon juice concentrate will not work the same way. The live enzymes in the fruit of the lemon play a crucial role in providing your body enough nutrients to sustain such a fast.

There are also many cleansing products on the market now that make the cleansing process a little easier. Here at Seven Grains we carrry the full line of Renew Life cleansing products. Renew Life offers a cleanse for those first-time cleansers. Also, they have a Total Body Cleanse, an Organic Total Body Cleanse, a Rapid Cleanse and cleanses that target specific areas, such as a colon cleanse or liver detox. Renew Life cleanses consist of a mixture of herbal supplements in tablet form that you will take for a specific length of time, a few times a day; these details differ depending on what cleanse you choose. What is so great about Renew Life cleanses is that they do not require you to fast. So whether it is your first cleanse and you want to start out easy, or it just isn’t the righ time to fast, Renew Life is a great choice! Renew Life also offers a toll free helpline for those cleansing. I found this very helpful, even before I started a cleanse I was able to call and get all my questions answered. One of which was whether or not doing such a cleanse would require me to stop taking prescription medication; the answer is no!(it is always recommended to check with your physician or pharmacist about any herbs you may need to avoid while on medication)

Cleansing your body is a great way to jump start a diet, feel more energized, and take control of your overall health. Take the time to do some research before jumping into a cleansing program. Some can be more intense than others, but no matter which program you choose your body will feel it. So plan ahead and try to start your cleanse on the weekend or when you don’t have work obligations or plans. Your body will thank you for it. Good luck and good health!
