You replace all meals and snacks with raw unprocessed juices made from fruits and vegetables for one day. When your body is freed from the burden of digesting solid food, toxins in the body can be effectively released. Every day we take in chemicals from food(colourants and preservatives), water (chlorine) and air (pollutants and noxious gasses). Our liver, kidneys and colon are designed to remove these toxins, but the hazards of modern life are too excessive for the body. Humans have been cleansing for a very long time. Ritual, cultural and religious fasting are a type of cleanse.
Benefits of Cleanse
Cleanses result in weight loss, boosted mental clarity, improved condition of the skin and hair, regulate digestion, remove toxins and result in general well being. Cleanses are an effective way of weaning of habits like smoking and alcohol and are particularly effective after a period of excessive intake like festivals or parties. People with certain medical conditions or are taking certain prescription drugs should consult a doctor before a cleanse. Patients on medication to control blood pressure, diabetes, children and women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should avoid cleanses.
