Hello there. I’m thrilled you made it, because reading this article will positively change the way you think. That could sound like hype to you right now, but I assure you if you read further you won’t regret it. This is critical info, and your quality of life is at issue here.
Right now, the chances are really high that your body is overflowing with all kinds of toxins. Hold on now, mine was also and I need to inform you, it’s not your fault. And please don’t be bummed out, because just about everyone never see it coming or gives it a passing thought. These chemicals and poisons just slowly accumulate over the years until your body approaches its toxic limit and begins protesting on you.

Keep on reading to discover more, but I  gotta tell ya, some of it’s not pretty.

Where Do These Poisons Come From?

Good question. What if I said we’re inviting them to our evening meal table every night? That’s a fact; a good amount of the chemicals hanging out in our bodies right now come from the stuff that we consume every day. In fact, here’s a list of foods that carry toxins, and I assure you you’ll be amazed when you take a gander at it. All the items on that page are supposed to be good for you!

cleansefoodguide

Now I’m hearing what you’re saying. I raise my own food also, and try to eat organic produce whenever I can for the stuff I can’t grow. There is no disputing these easy steps can help, but it turns out that’s only the start. See below to find out more, but first check out the video from Yuri Elkaim.

Trigger goes here

More sources of toxins that afflict us everyday include medications, everyday items like makeup and deodorants, and altered foods that most of us  haven’t heard of.  Couple that with heavy metals such as mercury, which can be found in some fabric softeners, and arsenic, which can settle in our water sources and in some weed killers, and it’s easy to see we’re creating a recipe for trouble here.

Signs Of Toxicity

Maybe you’ve had excess exhaustion, bloating and horrible gas, or skin ailments that never seem to get better, and just associated these various symptoms to a bad meal or not getting enough sleep at night. Have you ever examined the additives that are in the fast foods we consume every day? Nearly all of these additions, such as MSG and aspartame, have been known to cause conditions like asthma and weird growths in both animals and people. And these are foods and drinks we throw down each and every day.

Yet another symptom of an excessively poisoned body is gaining weight and retaining fat. Sometimes it seems like no matter how much you work at it, you just can’t seem to get anywhere. This is probably your body’s reaction to toxic buildup as it tries to save itself by hiding the poisons in fat cells.

Rapidly advancing aging is yet another sign of excess radical chemicals in your system. While your body’s cells become laden with toxins they are less prone to manufacture antioxidants that can assist in anti-aging.

Addicted To Food

Many of us have our own favorite foods we go back to time and time again, mainly for taste, convenience or even comfort. Did you ever stop to think that these urges for certain foods are because we’re actually hooked on them?

It’s simple to become dependent on foods that incorporate sugar, or breads and crackers, and even the caffeine jolt that gets us awake and aware every morning. And what about those fast food joints that are on every avenue these days? Though all these foods taste great, we admit they’re not really nutritious for us,  and yet we seem helpless to stop these longings.

Is The Predicament Hopeless?

Sometimes it seems we are bound to get stuck in these routines for the duration of our days, dragging ourselves through another day and staying with the same old routines, assuming that this is the way our life is supposed to be.

Well, I’m here to inform you it doesn’t have to be that way. Here’s a way to break free from the sequence and absolutely take control of your health situation again. Consuming clean, healthy foods is a a wonderful start, but it won’t do too much to clear our systems of the poisons that have slowly accumulated over the decades. For that, we’ll need a total body cleanse, and the sooner the better.

Hey don’t get all uptight, because I’m going to break it down for you right here. I realize it sounds threatening, but I assure you that detoxing can be a positive and rewarding journey if done correctly.

Total Wellness Cleanse

A total system cleanse might conjure up some pretty awful scenes, like spending days on the toilet and stockpiling fruit juices and laxatives. That’s not the way it is by a long shot. Yes there are some really radical cleansing routines out there, like drinking spicy concoctions or taking special cleansing pills, but there are also a few well thought out and reasonable programs as well.

The only cleanse that I’m recommending without reservation today is the Total Wellness Cleanse by Yuri Elkaim. Yuri is a registered Holistic Nutritionist, and he’s teamed up with Amy Coates, another Holistic Nutritionist, to make a 30 day cleansing program that takes a reality-based and flexible approach to detoxifying your system.

Mr Elkaim’s system is above and beyond any other. I will not go into very much description here because I cannot do it justice, but you can check out the site right here and read through all the info. You can also check the enormous amount of testimonials he has from thoroughly satisfied customers.

Hey, your well being is at stake here, and is there anything more important than that? I searched all over and got mountains of information, but when I was finally ready to get it done I got the help of real professionals, and that’s what Yuri and his folks are.

If you’re done with feeling run down, you should check out his website right now and look at he has to say. Don’t trust your well being to just any other detoxing plan.

Foods That Cause Inflammation

Foods that cause inflammation

Refined Sugar

Before we begin, I’d like to say thank you to mentor and health coach, Yuri Elkaim.

I searched for a long time before I found Yuri. As you probably know, there are so many practitioners in the nutrition space that it’s hard to separate the self-proclaimed “experts” from those who really know what they’re talking about.

I joined one of Yuri’s programs years ago and he’s the one who set my on the right path and ignited a fire within me to help people understand the often confusing and conflicting information regarding personal nutrition.

If you’re struggling to understand how your body processes and reacts to food, you really owe it to yourself to hop on over to Yuri’s site and see what I mean. He helped me a great deal, and I know he can do the same for you.

The man simply knows his stuff!

Now, on to the article!

We all eat foods that cause inflammation every day. Our daily diet is directly related to how much chronic inflammation you’re carrying around with you. After years of eating the same old stuff and not realizing that inflammation is building all the time, your body may sending signs it’s time to rebel.

It will do so quietly at first, so softly you probably won’t even notice any changes. Once it’s reached its limit, signs won’t be so subtle any more.

That’s what we’re trying to avoid here, so let’s dig in.

Saturated fats – This is one of the biggies. And, as it turns out, one of the most controversial as well. I think the majority of Americans have too much saturated fat in our diet. You will find other many other people who believe that saturated fat has gotten  bad rap over the years and that it’s not necessarily the evil demon we’ve been led to believe.

So who is right?

Good question, and one that requires much more research on the part of the scientific community. If you feel like doing some extra reading I have some links for you. I must warn you beforehand that these studies can be awfully dry and boring to read, peppered with scientific nomenclature and hard-to-pronounce words.

I believe this reason alone is why some people give up in the quest to become healthier, but they are here for your edification. I won’t go into great detail here because the purpose of this book is to alert you about chronic inflammation and not the evils of saturated fats.

Saturated Fat Prevents Coronary Artery Disease

Saturated Fats And Heart Disease Link Unproven

Fats And Cholesterol

Saturated Fats And Heart Disease Controversy

With that said, I’ll let you know what works for me.

I try to limit my intake of saturated fat because I believe there’s a link between too much fat and too much inflammation. A lot of the studies I’ve read show that there is a direct connection between saturated fats and chronic inflammation.

Not only that, I also feel much better when I’m eating lower amounts of saturated fats and sticking with fish, chicken and leaner cuts of meat like pork. I gradually lost my taste for red meat after eating lower fat alternatives for years, and while I believe there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a good steak every now and then, I don’t believe it should be a part of your everyday life.

As I said, you will definitely find differing opinions, and you have to do what’s right for you.

It’s my belief that limiting saturated fats will reduce the low-grade inflammation in your body, and also make you feel healthier at the same time.

Don’t confuse the good and bad fats however, and don’t get rid of all fats altogether. There are still plenty of fats that are good for you, like those found in tree nuts and avocados, for example.

Refined Sugar – Here’s another big one, so big in fact that I wrote a whole book on Sugar Detox.

The kind of sugar we’re talking about is processed sugar, the stuff that hides in all our boxed, packaged and processed foods these days.

You can find these processed sugars everywhere, from cereals to yogurt, and soda pop and ice cream as well.

Pastries, pies, fruit juices, chocolates bars, and virtually all packaged foods contain some sort of added sugar. And sugar goes by so many names that it’s difficult to detect sometimes.

Without getting too much into cell physiology, the ingestion of excess added sugar is instrumental in releasing cytokines. These cytokines are released by cells to interact with our immune system.

During normal operation, they play a key role in our overall health, but if something causes our body to release too much of these cytokines, disease can be the result.

As I said, this is a very over-simplified view of what takes place, but needless to say, reducing the amount of processed sugar you eat will certainly help your overall health as well as reduce the amount of chronic inflammation inside your body.

Artificial Sweeteners – Wow, it doesn’t get any tougher when it comes to controversy, does it?

Artificial sweeteners have been on the bad list of a lot of nutritionists for a long time.

The reason people have embraced them is because they seem to be a great substitute when trying to lose weight. Most of them have very little if any calories, so if weight reduction is your goal then these seem like a logical choice.

But upon closer examination, it seems that all of these fake sugars have one thing or another that make than less attractive than at first glance.

Saccharin – If you’re old enough to remember the saccharin studies of the early 70s, you’ll also remember the warning labels this product was required to display. (It turns out that this was reversed in the year 2000 because there’s something in the bladder of rats that humans don’t possess, thereby eliminating the risk in humans).

Aspartame – This sugar substitute goes by the name of NutraSweet™ or Equal™. It’s found just about anywhere food manufacturers need sweetness but want to eliminate calories. Almost all diet sodas contain aspartame.

It’s been known to cause headaches, dizziness, depression, anxiety, diarrhea, and a whole host of other issues.

Not only that, but studies have indicated that aspartame breaks down into Formaldehyde in your body.

That should be reason enough to step back from diet soda, yet they continue to sell vast amounts of these products each year to people who are intent on losing weight. Another irony is that diet soda has also been proven to be responsible for weight GAIN in lots of people.

Splenda™ – Another laboratory created sugar substitute, this concoction has lots of things going for it. It’s as sweet as sugar but doesn’t cause a spike in your blood sugar level. Dozens of foods already contain this artificial sweetener.

Not enough studies have been done I humans to determine the long-term effects of this sugar substitute , but suffice it to say that anything created in a laboratory should be reason enough to do your own research when it comes to putting it in your body.

The list goes on and on. There are sweeteners that are natural instead of manmade that are slightly better, like honey and maple syrup, but they’re not non-caloric so if you’re trying to lose weight you need to be mindful of that.

Like all the other foods we’ve talked about so far, sugar substitutes have their opponents as well as their supporters. I’m not coming down on either side of the fence here, but merely trying to highlight certain foods that have been shown to cause inflammation in the body.

 

Let’s examine some others.

Trans Fats – Well, finally one we can all pretty much agree upon. In 2006, the FDA stated that trans fat information had to be included on package labeling, and since then, food manufacturers have begun limiting the places where these fats used to pop up freely.

Consumer education plays a huge role in how the food industry plays the game, and when consumers were tuned in to how bad these fats are for us, manufacturers began to pay attention.

Now we can find the No Trans Fat label on a lot of our favorite snack foods and lots of the other products where these fats used to play a major role.

But they still lurk in some spots where we don’t give it much thought, such as the following.

French Fries – Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a French fry addict. I hardly eat them anymore, and only get them where I know they’ve been baked and not fried. Believe me, if you find a restaurant that bakes their fries, you’ll never go back to the fried version again.

Most fast food chains have taken great strides to reduce or even eliminate the trans fats in their fried foods, but there are some out there that still use hydrogenated oils to do their frying, so you should check before you chomp.

If you can’t find the information on the Internet, simply ask.

Pies – Pies and also the crust have traditional been made with products containing hydrogenated oils. Again, fast food places have stepped up to the plate and removed a lot of the trans fats, but you can still find these in the grocery store, so check the label for hydrogenated oils.

Margarine – For years, margarine was touted as a healthy replacement for our beloved butter, but lately research has been showing that margarine, and especially stick margarine, is not as good as we once thought.

The reason is that in order to hold its shape, margarine needs to employ the use of hydrogenated oils.

It turns out that butter may be better, after all.

Pancakes – What? Say it ain’t so! I’m sorry, but I’m afraid it is. Pancake and waffle mixes are notorious for hiding hydrogenated oils. It’s best to read the label because some varieties are okay.

Microwave Popcorn – All right, now I’m just being mean, right? Believe me, I used to eat this stuff like crazy, and I still indulge sometimes, but not nearly as much as I used to. And there are some varieties that are perfectly fine, while others have 15 grams of trans fat per bag! And who doesn’t eat the whole bag?

Cookies – My waistline is allergic to cookies, they cause it to swell tremendously. I love them, but again, I try to stay away. Store bought cookies stay on the shelves for who knows how long, and to do that, they almost always employ hydrogenated oils. Again, label reading is a must.

Crackers – Lots of crackers contain trans fats, although manufacturers have gotten better at reducing or eliminating the bad stuff.  Even though the amount may not be that much per serving, they all add up, and even a little is too much of this dangerous type of fat.

I hope that you’re a bit more enlightened than when you began reading this chapter. I’d like to take about one more category here, so bear with me.

Refined Grains – These types of grains are just what they sound like. They have been pretty far removed from their natural state by some sort of processing. The most famous example just might be white flour, which is stripped of its nutrients and also fiber in an effort to make it stable and increase its functionality and stability in the food world.

Unfortunately, it’s also unleashed a whole host of health problems as well.

Let’s think about it. White flour is almost everywhere at every meal. It can be found in muffins at breakfast time, in wraps and slices of bread at lunch, and at dinner time, almost every meal comes with rolls or some sort of bread.

Flour is easy find in almost all of our processed foods these days, and some say it’s wreaking havoc on our waistlines and our health.

Other refined grains include white rice, pizza crusts, white bread, pastas, grits, and crackers.

Try to avoid these at all costs. Their nutritional value is not that great, and they tend to raise the chronic inflammation level in your body.

These foods contained in this chapter are by no means a complete list. I’ve merely tried to stimulate your thought process.

I think you get the idea here. There are two main takeaways from this chapter that I’d like to make sure you really get.

Number one, in order to be the healthiest person you can become, you must be a label reader. The food manufacturers are required by law to label their products, and you’ll find a whole host of information contained there.

Number two, control as much as you can. This means reading labels, but it also means researching restaurant menus before you go out so you can be prepared to order something delicious AND healthy too.

Do I want you to completely rearrange your life?

No. You should still enjoy foods you love, but really limit the ones you know are unhealthy.

Remember we talked about commitment in an earlier chapter. Change will take commitment, but your health is totally worth it, and I’m confident you will find a balance between enjoying life and optimum health.

Please take time to enjoy the video above, I know you’ll learn a great deal about cleansing and detox.

If you’re getting tired of feeling run and lacking energy, perhaps it’s time you tried a whole body cleanse. Now I know what you’re thinking; cleansing sounds so radical and regimented, and you may be a little apprehensive about trying something like this.

There has been and lot of misinformation and controversy around cleansing and detox lately. Famous celebrities have brought cleanse programs into the spotlight recently, but as a result of that there have been many crazy diets and routines that have surfaced.

While a cleanse program can be strict and rigid, you’ll have a better chance at succeeding with your detox efforts if you choose a routine that is all natural and

doesn’t involve any magic pills or potions. And while we’re at it here, let’s dispel a few myths surrounding cleansing and detox in general.

frujitveggiessmall

Myth #1 – Cleansing means you can’t spend too much time far away from the bathroom. Most people naturally assume that because your body is undergoing a purging of unwanted toxins and waste, that you’ll spend all your waking hours within sprinting distance of the bathroom. Nothing could be further from the truth, especially if you choose the correct detox program. While you may experience some changes in your bathroom habits, especially at first, by no means will you be glued to the bowl.

Most people’s imagination takes over here and they envision something quite horrible when in fact quite the opposite is true.

Myth #2 – You will experience a definite lack of energy. Wrong again! You will most certainly notice changes, but they will be positive changes. Sure, like anything different, there may be changes that you are wondering about as you begin your detox, but again, if you’ve chosen the right program all of this will be expected and explained to you, and I guarantee it won’t be as bad as you’re imagining.

Again, the hype and misinformation surrounding the act of detoxification is running rampant.

Don’t let it deter you in your quest for a healthier life.

Myth #3 Cleanses are a liquid diet. Again, another piece of misinformation. Any cleanse that prescribes only liquids is sure to have you feeling hungry, lacking energy and quite discouraged. Most detox routines that are effective and safe are actually adding things to your daily intake of food.

The difference will be that it is wholesome and probably organic material that will enhance your health and vitality. Personally I would steer clear of any cleanse program that advises all liquids and no solid foods.

You shouldn’t be hungry while doing a detox program, because it will only increase your chances of falling out of the routine and going back to your old habits. Steer clear of any programs that have you drinking spicy concoctions and starving yourself.

As with all changes in your normal routine, a quick check with your doctor may be in order. Your health care professional will be able to tell you if they foresee any problems.

If you’re thinking of doing a cleanse, make sure you do your research. There are many programs that will actually harm your health instead of improving it. When it was time for my detox, I turned to my personal fitness and nutrition hero, Yuri Elkaim. His experience and reputation in the health industry is second to none, and one of his products, the Total Wellness Cleanse, is perfect for a natural and safe detox.

If you’re thinking of a whole body cleanse, be sure to check out Yuri’s program. It worked for me, and you can check out the many testimonials on his site to see all the other satisfied people as well.

Good Luck, and Good Health Always!

Sugar Detox Diet

Sugar Detox Diet

Hey friends, check out the video from my nutrition coach, Yuri Elkaim, but also  please read the short but informative article below to find out where sugar is hiding in just about  all the foods we eat! Very surprising info…

It seems as though everyone is doing some sort of detox diet today, from lemonade to cayenne pepper and also the sugar detox diet. While detoxing your body is one of the best things you can do to improve your overall health, detoxing in the wrong way can actually lead to problems instead of improving your situation.

Let’s face it, sugar is one of the most addictive substances on earth. We put it in our coffee first thing in the morning, eat a candy bar for a snack during the day, and consume a sweet treat for dessert after dinner. It gives us a sugar rush and tastes oh so good.

In fact, sugar consumption is at an all time high these days, with the average American ingesting up to 70 pounds each year. That number might sound unbelievable to you, but sugar hides everywhere, and comes in many forms.

Sweets

Don’t believe me? Just check a product label from almost any processed food the next time you’re in a grocery store. Things like spaghetti sauce, your healthy granola, and even that low-fat yogurt you eat for breakfast can all have up to 6 teaspoons of added sugar. Some of the other names sugar goes by include corn syrup, beet sugar, dextrose, maltose, and the big daddy of the all, high-fructose corn syrup. And this is just to name a few. Reading labels might seem boring, but can be oh-so enlightening.

Lately, the government wants to control more and more of what we do, up to and including some of the foods we eat. Regardless of how you feel about government intrusion in your life, there’s no denying the fact that a diet that has too much sugar can lead to all kinds of health problems, including diabetes and heart disease.

The Center For Disease Control has recently released a startling report that claims 1 in 3 Americans will develop diabetes by the year 2050. That is a shocking statement, but statistics show this trend to be correct.

Consuming a diet rich in sugar will most likely lead to weight gain, and there are a whole host of health problems that can arise from being overweight. So why do we continue to crave so much sugar when deep down we know it’s bad for us?

Studies show that eating a sweet item for breakfast, such as a danish or sticky bun, will satisfy your hunger for the moment, but consuming simple carbohydrates without help from some kind of proteins or fats can leave you craving more sugar just a short time later.

But do we have a choice in all this? Some scientists claim that the taste of sweets is the first thing we crave. And consuming carbohydrates causes the release of a chemical substance in our brain called serotonin, also called the “feel good” chemical. Ah-ha! No wonder we crave the sweet stuff!

Remember how we said that sugar is everywhere? You’d be surprised where sugar hides in processed foods. Just a few of these include breads, juices, energy bars and soft drinks. In fact, one glazed donut has about 4 teaspoons of added sugar, and an innocent looking iced cupcake can contain up to 6 teaspoons of added sugar. The thought of eating a cupcake is a pleasant one, but think about eating 6 teaspoons of sugar one after the other. Gross!

So now that we know we have these sugar addictions, what can we do about it? Should we pursue a sugar detox diet, or does it go even deeper than that? What if there’s a way to do a whole body detox, and cure our sugar cravings once and for all?

My friend and mentor, Yuri Elkaim, has created a detox program that addresses this problem and also many others. His program, called the Total Wellness Cleanse, is widely acclaimed to be highly successful and easy to follow. His techniques for detoxing your body are all natural and do not involve drinking and spicy pepper drinks or popping mysterious diet pills. He likes to call his approach to detoxing “non-fanatical”, and after going through his program I can agree with that.

Yuri is a world renowned holistic nutritionist and in demand public speaker concentrating on nutrition and exercise. He is well-respected in the world of natural health and wellness and is one of the most caring and professional people I’ve ever been associated with.

In short – he really knows his stuff.

If you’re unhappy with your current health situation and interested in a whole body detox that is all natural and very gentle, the please visit Yuri’s page and read through the many testimonials of his satisfied clients.

Detox Symptoms

Detox Symptoms

Hey folks, before we get started check out what my fitness hero, Yuri Elkaim, creator of The Total Wellness Cleanse, has to say about detox symptoms.  You’ll learn a great from his experience and insight.

 

Now back to our  regularly scheduled program….

If you’re considering a body cleansing routine and are new to the process, you’ve probably heard all the scary stories about nasty detox symptoms. Maybe you’ve done some preliminary research and after reading through some articles you may have decided to go ahead with your body detox, but are still leery of feeling sick while your body rids itself of years of chemical buildup. Please read below to find out what kind of symptoms you may get when detoxing, and what you can do to help minimize their effect on your physical and mental condition.

First of all, if you’ve decided to try a detox, congratulations. This is a big step on the road to total health and well-being and your body will thank you for it.

You may know from experience that giving up certain foods or drinks can come with a price to pay. For example, if you’re a coffee drinker and you try to go without it for a few days, you’re almost certain to develop headaches and maybe even irritability. A detox program can have you on a strict regimen that may induce all sorts of other symptoms, such as nausea, fatigue, moodiness, skin conditions and even the thought that you might have the flu.

So how can this be good for you?

Wellness Cleanse

What Happens To Your Body During A Detox?

For starters, let’s get one thing clear; your body is always doing some sort of detox. Your liver, kidneys, lungs and even your skin are constantly performing detox functions as you go about your daily routine. The big problem these days is that your body is under assault from more chemicals and toxins than it ever has been, and while the body is an amazing and adaptable system, even it can reach limits of what it can handle. From the pesticides and additives in the foods you eat, to the water you drink and the air you breathe, toxins find a way into your body. And once they are inside, some of them are pretty hard to get rid of.

By design, a whole body detox should be a simple plan to follow. Any regimen that involves drinking spicy concoctions and taking pills designed to flush your system should be avoided. Instead, look for a plan that takes an all natural and realistic approach to the detox process.

During the detox, your body will begin to rid itself of any foreign substances that don’t belong. This can cause a feeling of nausea as you begin to eliminate the unwanted materials. You may aso develop diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms. It’s at this point that a lot of eager detoxers really lose their steam and begin to think about giving up.

Don’t let that be you!

If you’ve chosen a good, sensible cleansing routine, the program should guide you through these rough patches and offer encouragement as you go through your detox.

How Not To Detox

How Long Does Detoxing Take?

I’m sure you’ve seen all the celebrities who swear by this 3 day detox diet, and that 7 day flushing plan. You’ve probably wondered a bit, and maybe even seriously considered, jumping on the bandwagon of one of these fad programs. Celebrities must know what they’re talking about, right?

Generally speaking, the slower the better when you’re trying to cleanse your body and eliminate years of built up toxins. Any program that offers 2 or 3 day results may be too radical for your system to handle. Instead, why not opt for an all natural approach that gentle and safely encourages your body expel unwanted poisons and other nasty stuff?

When choosing a plan, I always look for at least a 30 day routine that I feel won’t be too radical and severe. I think cleansing is very important, but I also don’t believe in shocking my system into performing in a manner it’s not used to.

Believe me, you’ll have the best chance of actually sticking with the program if you take things slow and easy instead of fast and fanatical. I know you’re in a hurry to see results, but trust me on this one.

One such program I can highly recommend has been created by none other than Yuri Elkaim, and world renowned holistic nutritionist and exercise expert. Yuri created the Total Wellness Cleanse to help as many people as possible achieve optimal health in a safe and reliable manner.

Visit Yuri’s website to read about his program and also examine the many testimonials from happy participants. If you’re considering  a whole body detox, Yuri’s program is definitely the way to go.

Detox Naturally – A Simple Plan

Detox Naturally – A Simple Plan

delicious veggies

It seems that everyone is doing some sort of detox these days, but few people seem to know exactly what detoxification really means.  I don’t know about you, but when it comes to cleansing my body I’d like to detox naturally if at all possible. I’ve heard too many
horror stories about detox plans that have gone wrong and actually have done more harm than good.

If you hear of any plan that has you drinking spicy potions or popping pills designed to clean your insides while you wait patiently on the toilet, I would run the other way. Instead of choosing the plan that’s most popular with celebrities at the moment, do some serious research and choose a program that’s all natural and well thought out.

Detox Extremes

The way I see it, an extreme plan may give you extreme results, but even if they’re the results you’re looking for, will they be short-lived, or long lasting? Chances are, if you’ve made a radical shift in behavior all of a sudden, it may be very hard to stick with it. I realize that a detoxification routine is supposed to be for a set period of time, but if you choose the correct one, it could signal some lifelong changes that will improve your overall health and well being.

Choosing a natural detox plan that sounds logical to you would be the best way to ensure you can actually stay on the plan once you start. I’ve heard of quite a few plans that involve consuming massive quantities of items that are not normally in your daily diet.

Making changes and leaving your comfort zone is all well and good, but if you stray too far away from the norm your chances of not completing your detoxification increase significantly.

A Sensible Detox Plan – What To Eat And What To Avoid

vegetables

So what exactly makes up a natural detox plan? While some programs may appear to be related to the latest fad diet, detoxing is much more than losing weight quickly. Although you may lose weight on your particular program, the main goal of a detox plan is to assist your body in ridding itself of years of toxin and chemical build. These unwanted invaders enter our bodies in many ways; through the water we drink and the food we eat, and even the air that we breathe.

Any good plan will recommend certain foods that will stimulate the detoxifying organs in your body, such as the liver. Some things to eat while on a whole body detox include any kind of fresh fruit and virtually all fresh vegetables. Other items, such as everything in the legume family, and lean meats such as chicken or fish are okay too, although in any detox program I’ve ever been involved with, meat is usually limited to once or twice per week.
Olive oil is always on the list of things that are super good for you, and sensible detox plans will include green tea, black tea, and all the water you like. All kinds of nuts are also on the list of good things to eat.

Cheese Pizza

Some foods to avoid include alcohol of any kind, coffee, most milk products except certain kinds of yogurt, and grains. Any kind of sweeteners such as sugar and aspartame, and even honey, should also be avoided. Any form of tobacco products are also considered a no-no, and you should be avoiding those in everyday life anyway. A detoxification not only cleanses the body but the mind as well. You should notice increased concentration and mental sharpness as your body rids itself of toxins and other chemical buildup.

Some people experience a period of feeling nauseous and run down during a detox. While your body is purging itself of unwanted substances, you could feel ill at times. It’s important to stick with the program as you go through these changes, as they should be
temporary in nature.
Detoxing can be a great way to kickstart your metabolism and put you on the right path to good health. Make sure you thoroughly research any plan you’re considering, and only choose one that seems all natural and not too radical.

Hello, and welcome back. I’m glad you’re here. Today we’re going to investigate how to detox your body, and look and the pros and cons of detoxing and whether or not it’s even necessary. There’s a lot of misinformation out there in circulation right now, and by the end of this article I hope to clear up any confusion you have and set the record straight, so let’s dive right in.

What Is A Detox?

A whole body detox is a way to cleanse your system and purge all the toxins and other unwanted chemicals that roam around inside you. These toxins generally come from the foods we eat in the form of fertilizers and pesticides, but can also come from our environment, such as lead in drinking water or mercury from fillings in our teeth.

During a detox, the goal is to get your body to surrender these unwanted materials. Purging your system is accomplished in many ways, and there many different detox plans on the market today. Some are great, some are pure evil and many just don’t work at all.

So what is a person in need of cleansing to do? Read on and find out!

Detoxing Myths

The word detox has garnered a lot of attention in the past few years, but there are many myths surrounding a whole body cleansing that have somewhat damaged the way people look at it. All sort of nasty rumors have been floating around about cleansing being done the wrong way. Many professionals claim that our bodies have their own detox routine, and that ingesting fancy herbal drinks and popping detox pills is a waste time, and may even be dangerous for us.

They claim that detoxing is nothing more than a marketing gimmic, and completely unnecessary. Their theory is to let the body handle ridding itself of unwanted and unhealthy substances.

And you know what? These experts have a point. If you’re trying to get rid of the excesses you’ve taken in over a festive holiday season, your body can probably purge what it needs to on its own, with a little help from you.

A Lifetime Of Buildup

Detoxing from a temporary binge may be totally within the realm of possibility just by watching what you eat and drink for a few days. Your body will eventually release the food and drink excesses and you’ll get back to feeling like your old self in no time. You know, tired, run down and lacking energy.

But what about the toxins and chemicals that have been building in our system for years and years, maybe even decades? Our bodies are constantly under attack from all angles, including the water we drink, the food we eat and the very air we breathe. And all the toxins can eventually build up enough in your system to affect the way you feel.

Just think about pesticides that are used on the foods we buy at the grocery store. We all know enough to wash everything before we eat it, but what about the amount that actually enters the food? Take a look here at the top pesticide-laden foods. Some of these may surprise you.

Other hazards come from our drinking water. Lead and arsenic levels can be sky high, and some reports indicate that bottled water may not be all that much better for us.

When it comes to a whole body detox, there are some pretty intense and radical plans out there. You should steer clear of these at all costs. Anyone advertising a 3 day or 7 day detox plan that includes drinking spicy concoctions and never traveling more that 10 feet from the bathroom may not have your best health interests at heart. Common sense should prevail, and obviously you should thoroughly research any detox plan you are considering.

There are some wonderful plans to follow that are easy to use, make good nutritional sense, and have rave reviews. One such plan is the Total Wellness Cleanse by fitness guru Yuri Elkaim.
