Cleansing has always had a place among humans, throughout all ages and cultures. For thousands of years, body purification has been a part of our rituals for health and well-being. It was also used in ancient times as a way to reconnect with God.
Diets have just been in vogue during the last 150 years or so. You can look at the word diet in different ways. It has that painful reference to cutting way back on all the foods you love. It also can refer to a set of foods you allow yourself to consume without limit.
Recently diet products and supplements have turned into diet “systems”. Diet products used to just burn fat or boost your metabolism so you burned more calories. They were fat burners. Now diet systems involve a cleanse portion as well, a metabolism booster and sometimes a natural appetite suppressant like Hoodia.
So, what is the best way to healthy weight loss? Let’s talk about what a colon cleanse can do for healthy weight loss.
Detox or cleansing is a way to clean out all the toxins, environmental pollutants, and wastes from all the drugs, toxins and chemicals ingested into our bodies. Think about all environmental poisoning from just the pesticides, insecticides and other contaminants that are on most of our foods. Think about all the chemicals in our air and water, food additives in processed food, antibiotics and more that we absorb into our cells. These environmental toxins and stresses assault our liver, blood and colon on a daily basis. Our liver removes many of these toxins, but in today’s world our liver is overloaded it just keeps dumping toxins into our colon and blood systems because it can’t take the toxic load we are giving it. Repeated exposure to these toxins, pesticides, and antibiotics can take its toll on the body resulting in suppressed immune systems, unexplained aches, depression, weight gain, loss of memory, and low levels of energy.
“The colon is a sewage system, but by neglect and abuse it becomes a cesspool. When it is clean and normal, we are well and happy; let it stagnate, and it will distill the poisons of decay, fermentation and putrefaction into the blood, poisoning the brain and nervous system so that we become mentally depressed and irritable; it will poison the heart so that we are weak and listless; poisons the lungs so that the breath is foul; poisons the digestive organs so that we are distressed and bloated; and poisons the blood so that the skin is sallow and unhealthy. In short, every organ of the body is poisoned, and we age prematurely, look and feel old, the joints are stiff and painful, neuritis, dull eyes and a sluggish brain overtake us; the pleasure of living is gone.”
- Dr. Bernard Jensen
Healthy weight loss starts with a colon cleanse. If the colon is cleansed on a regular basis it is better able to absorb nutrients into our cells. If our colon is full of compacted old waste it absorbs very little of the actual nutrients we eat. That is why the body keeps telling you that you are hungry and calls for more food. It is a vicious cycle. Healthy weight loss, weight loss that lasts, comes from fine tuning your system, starting with a colon cleanse. A good colon cleanse will eliminate most sugar and salt cravings making that healthy weight loss even easier! To keep your body running in top shape with high energy levels you should consider a colon, liver, blood and kidney cleanse once every three months or once every season. You can also buy some “health assurance” by adding a green superfood to your diet daily. That is what I call a diet!
