The body is amazing. It has the ability to process all the “stuff” that is thrown at it every day. From food and water to natural body toxins, the body has the ability to deal with all it all.
Over time, you may notice that your body isn’t working as efficiently. It may be time to support your normal, healthy system by doing a cleanse, but how do you know if it’s right for you? Here are 3 questions to consider before starting a cleanse:
1. Are you currently under an acute illness?
If your body is actively dealing with a temporary, acute illness it may not be the best time to start a cleanse. Doing so may aggravate your body, making you feel terrible.
2 Are you eliminating efficiently?
When doing a cleanse you need to make sure that any natural body toxins that are stirred up during the process are able to exit the body. If you are temporarily not eliminating efficiently substances are reabsorbed, making the whole process pointless.
3 What are your intentions?
Cleanses are meant to support the body’s systems when you feel they may need a little extra assistance. They should not be used as a quick fix weight loss tool. Any weight loss that is achieved usually comes back after the cleanse is completed. Nevertheless, a cleanse can be a great way to kick start a healthier lifestyle, including a weight loss journey, by allowing you to take a break from your usual routine and spend some time taking care of your body.
