The media inundates us daily with the detrimental effects that toxins have on our bodies, from heavy metals in our water supply to the damaging effects that our modern diets have on our bodies. We are told what to eat and how to live to help us maintain healthy balanced lives. One of the best steps to help detoxify our bodies is full a full body cleanse.
There are many types of cleanses available on the market, all you have to do is watch some late night infomercials or do a Google search for cleanse and you will get a few hundred options to choose from. This article provides a brief description on the four most popular cleanses on the market today.
Once toxins enter our system they are stored in our body fat, which is only used when the body begins to burn fat is search of fuel. One of the most simplest cleanses is the water cleanse. The premises of the water cleanse is to have a period of fasting, usually no more than 24 hours, where all you consume is water. It is recommended that you should consume half of your weight in ounces of water while on the cleanse. So if you weigh 150 pounds, during the 24-hour period of the cleanse you should try to consume approximately 75 ounces of water.
The Master Cleanse, sometimes known as the lemonade cleanse or the maple syrup cleanse is one step above the water cleanse. This cleanse was originally developed in 1941 and consists of drinking 60 ounces of lemonade per day for a maximum of 10 days, which includes an ease in and ease out period. People performing the lemonade cleanse are also encourage to drink as much water as possible per day, using the same formula as the water cleanse. Participants are also encourage to use some form of morning and evening laxative to help flush out internal toxins. This can be in the form of pills, teas or a salt water flush.
Much like the water cleanse and the Master Cleanse, the juice cleanse is used to help flush the body of toxins and waste. However, unlike the water cleanse the Mater Cleanse and the juice cleanse will actually continue to support the systems of the body by incorporating nutritional value with the inclusion of vitamins and antioxidants during the detoxification process. Some popular juice cleanses are, the lemon juice cleanse, also known as the Master Cleanse, vegetable juice cleanse and fruit juice cleanse. A juice cleanse should only be done over a short period of time and participants should follow the same water formula as in the water cleanse, that is drinking half of your weight in ounces of water per day.
The Power Cleanse takes the liquid full body cleanse one step further by introducing all the required nutrients that the body needs, including protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. This is the most comprehensive way to do a proper liquid cleanse without robbing the body of essential nutrients. Participants will be able to help detoxify their bodies while not causing any damage to the systems in the process. This cleanse should be completed for 21 days and the same water formula applies.
Please note that going on a liquid full body cleanse is not for everyone. You should monitor how your body responds to the cleanse and if you notice any negative side emotional side effects such as fatigue, irritability or anxiety you should immediately stop the cleanse and consult a physician.
