Health Benefits of Doing a Total Body Cleanse

February 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 492

Our bodies are like machines. And like any machine, our bodies need to be maintained and cleaned regularly in order to function properly for a long time. We are exposed to various toxins everyday. Some toxins are produced by our own bodies while some are influenced by the environment and other external factors such as pollution. Organs such as our liver, kidneys and intestines and other body parts of the excretory system are responsible for naturally eliminating these toxins. The toxins can wreak havoc to our bodies when they build up so it's very important to purge them regularly. One way to help eliminate them quickly is by doing a total body cleanse.

You might be wondering what a total body cleanse is. No, it's doesn't require body scrubs and long bubble baths. A total body cleanse typically involves a fasting plan in which only purified water or organic herbal cleansing teas and products are consumed. However, since calories are very limited during a body cleanse, you may experience fatigue or lack of energy. On a positive note, one of the effects of a total body cleanse is an increase of energy. Ayurvedic medicine states that when you clean your digestive system, you'll feel much lighter and you'll also have more energy.

Another benefit of detoxifying your body is it can help prevent diseases. Chronic diseases actually result from too much toxic build up in the tissues and the organs. This can be prevented or even treated by regular cleansing and detoxification. By regularly doing a body detox, you can help boost your body's immune system and help prevent disease even before it starts.

As I have mentioned, toxic build up can cause conditions such as headaches, muscle aches and other body pains. This is why many people also resort to body detox as a way to relieve pain due to these conditions.

If you're into losing weight then you would greatly benefit from body cleansing. You'll definitely lose pounds because you'll be able to eliminate all the excess trash in your digestive tract. Body cleanse can also help you lose your water weight which can make you look and feel slimmer.

To wrap up, when doing a total body cleanse it is very important to use only organic cleansing products. Some cleansing products are made of synthetic ingredients which can do more harm than good to your body so always go for the natural one. Happy cleansing!

Feeling sluggish and out of sync? It might be time for a body detox. Jem's Natural Living offers a wide assortment of eco friendly home products, organic baby products and natural health products such as organic cleanse kits.
