This is a 10 day simple food detoxification cleanse that requires no supplements of any kind! It is designed to be done quarterly during each season of the year.
Changes in seasons tend to be transitionary phases not only for your lifestyle, but more importantly for your body and its overall digestive health.
This is largely due to the fact that our diets change from season to season. For example, during the cold winter months we tend to eat more comfort foods that are high in carbohydrates, such as bread and pasta, and contain hearty meats, such as beef and pork. These common winter meals can make optimal digestion difficult. During the warmer months we eat more raw fruits and vegetables. We also tend to indulge in cold, sweet desserts, such as ice cream, that can ‘shock’ our digestive systems.
These sudden changes in diet make it tough for your digestive system to work normally. This is why detoxing and cleansing with a change of the seasons is very important as it helps to “reset” your digestive system to work consistently and maintain better digestive health.
By decreasing inflammation and resetting the body’s metabolism through a gentle cleanse, we may lose pounds plus inches as our bodies reconfigure. Various physical, mental and emotional symptoms may diminish or disappear as well — including imbalanced cholesterol, digestive complaints, constipation, headaches, arthritis, aches and pains, fatigue, skin issues, mental fog, irritability, insomnia and anxiety. By the end of a cleanse, we may find we have more energy, greater clarity and an improved sense of well being.
