As we turn the corner toward spring, many of us are looking for ways to get a jumpstart on tidying up our lives. Not only does this mean cleaning up our surroundings, but also looking for easy ways to cleanse the body internally.
It might feel daunting when you look at all the cleansing products on the market and try to find one that is right for you. Not only that, but it can be downright dangerous to aggressively cleanse the body without taking into account your individual medical needs. Make sure to talk to your doctor before you cleanse and look toward a gradual, gentle approach and will work with your system.
The Gerson Method is a diet to cleanse the body of any toxins that cause illness, disease and any other unfortunate ailments that may arise from poor diet, lack of sleep and lack of exercise. Following the Gerson Method is a great way to eliminate your body of unwanted buildup that could be making you feel tired and sluggish. The Method consists of eating raw organic foods, drinking juices made from the freshest organic fruits and vegetables, consuming natural supplements and partaking in enemas to cleanse the digestive tract.
Another option is the Ayurvedic Cleanse, Pancha Karma. This Ayurvedic cleanse is done in three stages: preparation, cleansing and rejuvenation. During the preparation stage, certain foods like sugar, caffeine and alcohol are phased out. Then, a special herbal drink is consumed, which is made up of water, fennel, pepper, ginger, cumin, coriander and cardamom. Psyllium fiber is also utilized to flush out the system. After the body is cleansed, foods are introduced back into the diet to rebuild the body, mind and spirit.
