We would like to wrap up our discussion this month with one final topic on detoxing – the cleanse. For the most part, a cleanse and a detox are the same thing. They’re typically used interchangeably and have the same basic goals: to remove harmful things from your body. Sometimes, they aim to target a specific organ like the liver or colon. The main purpose of a cleanse is to clean out the digestive tract, including the colon, from undigested food particles, toxins and parasites. A cleanse is often a gentler way of releasing toxins, often by adopting a simpler diet for a period of time.
Cleansing is simply another way to help your body stay healthy—like eating right and getting plenty of exercise. One of the big benefits of herbal cleansing over juicing is its simplicity: many people choose herbal cleansing because there is no slicing, dicing, squeezing, or blending involved. That can get pretty time consuming!
Herbal cleansing formulas typically come in convenient and easily portable vegetable capsules or powder, with ingredients from natural sources to help eliminate toxins, promote regular bowel movements, and support a balanced digestive system. A cleanse may last for a few days or as long as a month, depending on individual needs.
Another benefit of herbal cleansing is no fasting. Juicing (or juice cleansing) is a type of fast that involves drinking mainly fruit and vegetable juice for a period of time. While this works for some people, others may have a hard time giving up solid foods. During an herbal cleanse, you can continue eating healthy foods as normal.
We come into contact with toxins every day—from the environment, our food and water, and even within our own digestive tract. And yes, our bodies were built to process those toxins, but our modern world puts added stress on our natural detox channels. Herbal cleanses and detox formulas work with your body’s natural metabolism to help re-establish digestive health, get rid of waste and toxins, and let you recapture that clean, light, energetic feeling you love.
