Just as we need to thoroughly clean our house periodically, a cleansing detox program should be a part of every healthy lifestyle. Our environment, food supply and water are toxic! Toxins are found in our cosmetics, toiletries, the air we breathe, dry-cleaning products, carpets, paint, anti-bacterial products, air fresheners, home cleaning products, new furniture, pesticides, herbicides, medications, additives in processed foods and on and on and it is now clinically proven that we are all carrying a toxic load stored in our bodies.
It's wise to give our body all the help we can because the disease rate has skyrocketed and we must be proactive if we wish to prevent dis-ease. Our bodies are constantly detoxifying themselves, but what happens when the toxic load gets to be too much? Well, our body stores the excess toxins in our fat and when the load is too high, it increases the stress load of our body, which causes our stress hormone, cortisol to stay high. When this happens, our insulin levels stay high as well. Guess, what, when these hormones are high, our bodies can't release fat! So, in order to reduce these elevated levels, we must reduce our toxic load. These toxins damage our cells accelerating aging and dis-ease.
Beside this, if you are addicted to sugar, it's VERY hard to stop eating it because food manufacturer's are actually creating the food based on addiction science. They want you to be addicted and sugar is a class one drug, just as addicting as cocaine. Cleansing is the only real way I know of to get it out of your body. In ten short days, you can be over your addiction and on your way to a healthy and vibrant life!
In my own experience, the best methods of cleansing include nutrient dense, vitamin and mineral rich fresh organic juices made at home. Adding this dense nutrition to our body helps the cells release the toxic load. It can be challenging to juice every few hours, and juice fasting is pretty intense and advanced for many people. This is why I've created the Green Smoothie Challenge. It's a gentler way to cleanse the body while still getting plenty of calories for the energy you need in your busy life.
The Green Smoothie Challenge involves drinking delicious green smoothies, and eating fresh fruits and vegetables for ten days. It's very economical and you can blend all of your smoothies and even make some blended soups ahead of time for ease.
Each year, I hold a FREE World Wide Green Smoothie Challenge! If you'd like to join this year's Challenge from January 12 - 21, 2015, you can sign up here. We'll cleanse together. I'll be there to support you and guide you along, help you get through the tough road-blocks you encounter and you'll feel like a new human on January 21, 2015!
