Cleansing and detoxifying prepares our bodies for winter. Cleansing the Liver, Kidneys, Intestines and Lymphatic system strengthens the immune system, so we are better equipped to fight off colds and flus. Also, it’s a great way to get into the habit of eating healthy foods which can give us more will power when we are tempted by the yummy treats of the holidays. Knowing how great it feels to eat healthy, gives a stark contrast to what it feels like when we eat too many processed or unhealthy foods. Food sensitivities can also be identified easily and thus avoided.
Purifying the body helps us cleanse from overindulgences in the summer months from vacations, parties, and BBQs. The body needs a break from various heavy foods such as sugar, alcohol, dairy, certain fatty meats, refined carbohydrates and processed foods; as well as toxins and chemicals that are inhaled, put on or in the body. The Liver, specifically, needs a chance to rid of excess waste and toxins so it can effectively do its job of rendering harmful substances that enter the body, less harmful.
