Summer Cleansing

0 June 18, 2012 - Archive

In my last blog post, I promised additional tips for beginning and sustaining a healthy cleanse. But before I discuss those details, I’d like to identify the reasons cleansing can be so beneficial, especially during this time of year.

According to natural-health pioneers such John Tilden, Dr. Randolph Stone, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Dr. John Ray Christopher, Dr. Richard Shultze, and Gary Young, most disease is the result of a poor diet that is high in animal products, overly processed foods, and foods that are high in fat and low in fiber. When we combined this poor diet with environmental toxin exposure and lack of exercise, we develop all sorts of problems such as inflammation, headaches, skin issues, and a sluggish immune system.

A dirty, compacted colon may be the culprit of these health issues. A clean, properly functioning colon, however, is the gateway to vibrant health. The natural-health advocates I mentioned above have taught and proven to their patients that miraculous healing occurs with thorough colon cleansing.

So without further ado, here are a few tips to help you with your summer cleanse—along with some proven Young Living products that will help you transform your health this season.

Tip 1: Enjoy plenty of raw fruits and veggies, fresh juice, sprouted legumes and beans, lots of garlic, olive oil, and add more cayenne to your diet. The more alive a food is, the more prana (life force) it has and the more vibrant and alive you will feel when you consume it. Refrain from eating all animal products, processed and refined foods, sugar, salt, alcohol, coffee, over-the-counter drugs, recreational drugs, and fried foods. Canned and processed food is dead!

Tip 2: Drink more water. I know I stated this in my previous blog, but the more water your colon has, the easier it is to eliminate toxins. Can you drink at least 64 ounces of water a day?

Tip 3: Get your body moving. Do more squatting, such as malasana, and walk more. Physical movement activates peristalsis, the wave-like contractions that move food through the intestines.

Tip 4: Use a colon cleansing product daily during your cleanse. Some of my personal favorites are Young Living’s ComforTone®, ICP™, and Digest & Cleanse™.

If you are cleansing, keep at it and feel free to share your stories and favorite cleansing methods with me.

    I’m on my second day of taking ICP and unfortunately I don’t know if I can take it again. The taste is so strong, I can’t get over the odor and the powder doesn’t completely absorb even with an emerson blender. Do you have any suggestions?

    I have done the 5 day Cleanse & it was hard but well worth it. I am wondering though what is the best way to move forward. I have the Digest & Cleanse how often should I use them. Is this something I should take daily?

    Really enjoying these posts. Was just wondering about one thing though, you write that in order to assist the detox “Refrain from eating all animal products”, but I noticed that the Digest and Cleanse contains gelatin, which I assume would be a meat product? Also, as a vegetarian, I would like to ask if it would be possible for Young Living to ensure that their products are vegetarian/ could use some sort of non-meat gelatin-like alternative?

    Many thanks, keep up the good work 🙂
