Planning A Detox? Here’s How To Choose A Safe And Healthy Cleanse
Is your body in need of a detox? Here’s how to choose a safe and healthy cleanse that actually works. (No juicing, no fasting, and NO starvation required!)
“Want less bloat? More energy? Better skin? Do a cleanse!”
If the word “cleanse” makes you shudder, you’re not alone. For most, the thought of a full body cleanse means having to spend days drinking weird concoctions and nothing else. But what if we told you that you don’t have to endure hunger pains in order to feel lighter and brighter?
It’s true! You can safely and effectively cleanse your body without feeling tired and hangry. But first, there are a few things you need to know...
HOW DOES A CLEANSE WORK?
Everyone has an internal detoxification system. In a healthy body, this system runs smoothly, but when your body is “toxic” it gets overloaded, whether it be from heavy metals, food, stress, or medications, and you start to develop symptoms of being sick…
This can show up as constant headaches, fatigue, bloating, sugar cravings, skin issues, and more.
The good news is, there’s a way to support your body’s detoxification system – it’s called detoxing. A detox, or cleanse, is meant to rid your body of excess toxins, and people have been doing it for hundreds of years.
There are many different detox programs to choose from. But unfortunately, many of the popular, celebrity-endorsed cleanses aren’t only bad for you, they’re harmful to your health. So before you start a strict herbal tea diet, there are a few things you need to consider...
WHAT TO ASK YOURSELF WHEN CHOOSING A CLEANSE
“Is it healthy?”
If you’ve looked into detoxing, you’ve probably come across the lemonade cleanse – a liquid-only diet that consists of consuming a spicy lemonade drink for 10 days. They claim that after 10 days you’ll have more energy, less bloat, and be a few pounds lighter. And while there’s no doubt you’ll lose weight consuming so few calories, the side effects can really cost you…
Aside from intense hunger pains, the lemonade cleanse can cause headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and much worse. Beyond that, cleanses that require you to restrict this much aren’t only unsustainable, they’re bad for you. Your body is missing out on essential nutrients, and in order for it to function properly, it needs real, natural whole foods.
“Will I starve?”
Unfortunately, many “fad detoxes” require you to go long hours without eating, claiming that’s the easiest way to rid your body of toxins. But repeat after us: starvation is not an option.
There are plenty of healthy ways to detox effectively and safely without going hungry.
“Will it make a long-term difference?”
You know how it goes… One week you’re trying a no-carb diet, and the next you’re eating every carb-loaded comfort food imaginable. (Sound familiar?) The problem with restriction diets is that they aren’t meant to be long-term, and before you know it, you’ve crashed and burned, returning to your old eating habits. The same happens for detoxes.
Before considering doing a detox, ask yourself “Is this going to make a long-term difference in my health, or will I want to fill my body with junk after I’m finished?” A good cleanse should help you form healthy habits and improve your relationship with your body.
