Many people want to get back on track with their health and wellness after the holiday season--and rightly so.
I personally like to complete a purifying cleanse program several times a year. It keeps me feeling my best and I believe there are important reasons we should focus making sure we are detoxifying appropriately. Some of these reasons are:
- Increased toxicity in our environment and food
- Increased synthetic endocrine disruptors (mostly estrogens)
- Detoxifying helps with weight loss goals
- Detoxifying can improve many health complaints
If you are wondering about some of the symptoms that may be improved through completing a cleanse, please download the Toxicity Questionnaire below. This form is completed before the cleanse and after the cleanse to mark progress.
I recently completed a "light" version of my cleanse for two weeks after Thanksgiving (I wasn't following it strictly but I was eating clean and using some of the products). I plan to do the complete version in the new year. However, even with my "light" version, I lost a few inches from my waist (my jeans were fitting well again!) and I noticed I felt calmer and happier (less anxiety!). I can't wait to do the full version!
I use a 21 Day program from the trusted nutritional company Standard Process. This is NOT a program that starves you or uses unsafe synthetic substances. It used whole food supplements along with a very clean eating plan. The program was actually studied at Logan College of Chiropractic and the results were statistically significant reductions in weight and blood pressure following the program.
