Did you know that all the cells in your body turn over (meaning they die off, and the body makes new cells)? The small intestine turns over every 2-20 days, the stomach every 2-9 days, colon cells every 3-4 days. You could literally have an entire new gut in 3 weeks! So what would happen if you ate really well for 21 days? What would happen if you not only ate really well, but actually added some herbs and whole food that cleaned everything out and let it rest and heal for 21 days?
Spring is here, and it’s the perfect time to cleanse. A spring cleaning of the liver is something we need to do every year. Why do you think we have spring allergies to the pollen? How many springtimes have you detoxed the liver? Most people will answer, “none.” I no longer have pollen allergies because I have been working on my liver for some time. That’s right. I don’t even have to take a allergy med! Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to enjoy those cut flowers from the garden? Or go for a jog in the park and enjoy the magnolia trees? Many people hold up in the house all spring and fall because of their pollen allergies. Why not just clean up the liver?
Some of you may be wondering why I am out west. I settled near Sedona for this period of time in order to heal my body. I am, in a sense, detoxing from mold, and hopefully resetting my body. I am doing something for me. It was time. And very much needed. It is a “type” of cleanse, a time-out from the toxic chemicals in our buildings and in the air we breathe outside. You certainly don’t have to go to these lengths for a simple cleanse. The key here is doing something for yourself. Caring enough about yourself and about your body to take the time for you. Let’s clean up your symptoms. Maybe you choose to do a 7 day cleanse, a 7 day water fast, or better yet a 21 day cleanse. Standard Process has a really nice one. It’s completely organic, full of vegetables and detox herbs. Your kidneys and liver will be so happy and this makes you feel great! You still eat 3 meals a day with it. Mostly raw organic vegetables, some lightly steamed veg and a little brown rice and lentils. And it’s EASY! I always like simple, easy cleanses, because that usually means I’ll stick with it.
Those of you who struggle with anxiety or depression will LOVE this cleanse. I was on top of the world mood-wise the first time I did it back in 2011. It was a year after I went off the antidepressants and I was still healing my brain and adrenals. Antidepressants damage the cells around where the drugs lodge in the brain. This cleanse felt so good, that I continued eating 1-2 salads every day after the cleanse was over! Because…I…felt…amazing! It gives the liver and kidneys a break and allows them to clean house, take out the trash and fix that broken fence. When the fence is repaired and there is less clutter, the body functions better and the brain lets you know it’s happy!
