Why I Cleanse Seasonally
What is the reason I write and run programs that include anywhere from 7-21 days of clean eating and supplements that help flush our system? Simple: it's needed. Over time, because of our overly processed food, environment, skin care and more, our bodies build up toxins which need to be released with the help of a restricted whole food diet and high-quality supplements, as well as other rituals to help inner healing. We're exposed to harmful substances all the time; they're in our diet (pesticides, microbes, mercury) and the very air we breathe (cleaning products, car exhaust, bug control sprays).
As you can infer from the name, toxins by definition are elements which negatively affect the body. They obstruct the natural biological processes and harm our anatomy in different ways.
The effects of toxins can be felt at the molecular level all the way to our emotional well-being!
• They can kill the useful bacteria that are located in the gut.
• They can slow down the DNA synthesis.
• Toxins can prevent the oxygen binding with red blood cells.
• They can block several essential enzymes.
• They don’t let the minerals and vitamins absorb into the bloodstream.
They can cause:
• Skin Rashes
• Irritation and many more problems.
Although the liver, kidneys, and intestines are meant to detoxify the body, an overload of toxic material will cause them to fail, which then leads to more serious health conditions. When you reach this level of toxicity, the toxins look for other ways to get out of the body and result in rashes, acne, and fatigue.
INFLAMMATION – THE REAL CAUSE OF ALL DISEASE
When toxins start destroying your body, the immune system reacts and the result in inflammation. Inflammation is known to be the root cause of all the disease, both big and small.
