Our bodies naturally cleanse themselves 24hrs a day, however if you take a few moments to think about the foods you consume on a daily basis, the environment in which you live and work, and even the air that you breathe, you will quickly see that it can be a little daunting even for the body to remove. Our systems can easily become overworked and less efficient.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that you only need to cleanse if you have a poor diet. In fact, everyone can benefit from cleansing. Proper juice cleansing with good healthy ingredients provides the body with all the nutrients it needs while lessening the workload on the digestive system. Additionally, many of the ingredients in our juices can aid the body in the removal and flushing of toxins, while nourishing the organs responsible for removing toxins from the body. Cleansing is an optimal way to give our bodies the break they deserve while also keeping ourselves energized and nutritionally satisfied.
An additional benefit of cleansing is in regulating the ph of the body. In the Yogic tradition, for the maximum health and mental balance, the blood should be 75% alkaline and 25% acidic. The medical community agrees that the normal ph for proper bodily function is more alkaline. When pH drops below the ideal, the body experiences a more acidic environment. This leads to problems such as inflammation and narrowing of the arteries and corrosion of body tissue. Long-term acidic pH may lead to cancer, heart disease, or diabetes. Essentially, the body will do anything it can to raise the pH level, putting unneeded stress on internal organs and processes. Most individuals who suffer pH-related health problems do so because of a pH that is too low.
A cleanse is not meant to be a diet, however it can help return the body to a state of equilibrium allowing the body to achieve or maintain it's proper weight. Think of cleansing as a tune-up and oil change for your body.
