Body Cleanse and Detox, A Must for A Healthy Body

Now, most people think of making resolutions at the start of a new year & most resolutions involve exercising more, eating out less, or cutting out junk foods, among many others. However, you will be hard-pressed to find someone with a resolution that includes doing a total body cleanse and detox at least once a year.

This is a crucial component to starting out a healthy lifestyle. The importance of cleansing is so great that often changes to a healthy diet from an unhealthy one can prove to be less fruitful than expected if a proper cleanse isn’t done correctly.

Making Cleansing a Priority & Giving Your Body a Fresh Start

Imagine your car is badly in need of a tune-up and you take it to a mechanic & when you get it back he tells you “All I did was top it off with some oil; you’re good to go!” How infuriating that would be…you would certainly feel cheated & as though nothing had been done that was greatly beneficial to prolonging the life of your car.

The same principle comes to play when beginning your journey to healthy living. So give your body a fresh start so all the healthy eating you do going forward will be that much more beneficial to your overall health.

Your body is a well-tuned & highly structured machine that runs non-stop. So it too needs a much required & duly deserved “break”. Cleansing does just that in so many ways. It not only eases the burden on various organs, such as your liver & kidneys, but it also, can act as a total reboot for your entire biological system.

Your body is given a clean slate…it is no longer bogged down with clearing out toxins & is now capable of operating at optimum capacity.

Added benefits from cleansing and detoxing can also include a body free of any parasitic infections. It performs the way it was intended to & sometimes even better.

Ease into It or Not

You don’t have to jump full-fledged into cleansing. You can ease your way into it. In fact, if you have never ventured down this road, it is highly recommended that you take your time & make your way through, step-by-step or more specifically, do a cleanse that focuses on a particular area of the body, i.e. liver cleanse, then colon cleanse, etc.

Things to Consider Prior to Cleansing

While cleansing and detoxing your body is fantastic for your overall health, the fact still remains that patience and discipline are much-needed qualities in order to be successful.

First, you must do your research and do it well. There are so many cleanses available out there, but so are possible side-effects, especially when done incorrectly; so don’t forgo following the instructions provided, dietary restrictions and all. With the help of your physician, you can definitely make the process of finding the right cleanse for you a less challenging one and ever so successful.

Second, you must set aside time to allow yourself the ability to carry through the process from start to finish without distractions or overt levels of stress or agitation in order to avoid derailing or hampering the effectiveness of the cleansing process.

Third, find someone to do your cleanse with or to at least have as a source of encouragement because you more than likely will need inspiration to carry on, especially, when it comes to lengthy cleanses (trust me, there will be trying days).

Fourth, you may want to start reviewing you past dietary choices & eliminate unhealthy foods. Make a list of healthy alternatives to those foods & start planning your budget to make your healthy living a possible feat. Signing up with your local health food stores for notifications on sales/deals may prove highly beneficial in helping you make your cleanse a successful transition to healthy living within your budgetary means.

Finally, set realistic goals – keep in mind that some cleanses may take more than one try to be visibly effective – you may have to cleanse 2-3 times to see a big difference in your body (energy level and all).

If you feel a cleanse didn’t work well for you, wait a couple months and try again with a different cleanse – within those 2 months you will be able to determine whether your body is still functioning the same or better.

Summing It Up – Cleansing and Detoxing Your Body

Cleansing is a much required tune-up your body needs for a clean & refreshing jolt of energy, so it must be considered when embarking on a journey to a healthier lifestyle in order to ensure a greater chance at success for your healthy new beginning.

As with all things related to your health, it is always best to check with your physician before making health-related changes to help prevent any negative or adverse effects to your body. On that same note, do consult with your physician on which type of cleanse you should use & at what pace you should go to help make it a successful and productive endeavor that yields you the best results.

  1. Thank you for your very informative article on body cleansing and detoxification.

    I am a person that is very careful with what I eat. I eat only organic, non GMO food. i stay away from sugar and sugar products. I also do not eat any products with wheat by choice rather than because I have any particular allergy.

    How often do you think I should do a cleanse for maximum effect?


    1. Thank you for reading my post, glad to hear of the healthy choices you make (I do the same with exception to the occasional wheat bread baked using flour from ancient wheat grains).

      I think you should do cleanses every 3 months for maximum benefit.



  2. A cleanse sounds like it’s just what I need. Sometimes I feel like a landfill! Which cleanse would you recommend from personal experience? Like you say, there’s so many to choose from. I’d love your thoughts. Thank you.

  3. I have had so many questions about cleanses. I have been afraid to try one due to some of the horror stories I have heard, Thank You for making it simple for me. I like the way you compare it to your car that I can understand.

    1. Thank you for reading my post. I am glad the analogy helped. I heard horror stories too when I first started looking into cleanses a few years back, but I figured it would be better to be healthier, even with the unpleasantness of cleansing than to try to ignore the need to & I must say after my second cleanse I definitely felt an increase in energy & mental fog was gone by the end of my third cleanse (I use Garden of Life 10 Day Gentle Detox Pills – Perfect Cleanse Kit with Organic Fiber) – so cleanse are certainly a must.

  4. Hello Lem, I am glad I read your post. I believe that our body needs cleansing in order to stay healthy and beautiful :). I have been influenced when I was younger during my college days but as I am growing older I kinda set aside that goal. Now, it is just reliving and surely this also inspire me to start all over again. Thank you.

    1. That is wonderful to know Jocelyn, certainly maintain a cleansing routine throughout the year, coupled with healthy foods & your body will feel the difference. 🙂

  5. I love the thought of cleansing and detoxifying your body! I’ve read good things about how your body can function so much better once it’s rid of all the toxins. As much as I like the idea, however, I’m not sure what cleanse would be the best for me to try. Do you have any recommendations for someone who is looking to try a cleanse for the first time? Any info would help greatly. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for checking out my post.

      I would recommend Garden of Life 10 Day Gentle Detox Pills – Perfect Cleanse Kit with Organic Fiber for those new to cleansing, as well as, those who do so regularly. I find Garden of Life Perfect Cleanse to be very good & not as “harsh” as some detoxing systems. However, if you would like to take a much easier route to ease yourself into a cleanse routine, try detox tea blends, such as, Traditional Medicinals EveryDay Detox Tea, 16 Tea Bags (Pack of 6)

      This detox tea blends really helped me a lot (please keep in mind any possibility of allergies to ingredients before & during use of herbal products.)

  6. Very interesting article. I’ve never done a cleanse before, but I’m big on probiotics. I have definitely noticed a difference in my digestion and even better immunity since I’ve started on them. I am big on good nutrition in general. Maybe I will have to try a cleanse one of these days.

    1. Hello Janna, definitely give cleansing a try, hope it goes well for you & let me know if you do. 🙂

  7. Hi.
    One thing i have stopped doing is making new years resolutions as i never stick with them.
    I am so ready for a body cleanse and detox, it is knowing how to do it so i am glad i have came across your post:)
    I am starting to really give up on myself and thats not me, so i need to really do something fast and detoxing comes to my rescue.
    When i start my detoxing do i detox everyday?and also what is the best food for you to eat? organic or just no proccessed foods? sorry for all the questions but will i know and feel it when i have detoxed?
    Thank u for this informal info:)

    1. I understand, I am not for new year’s resolutions either, but strive instead for lifestyle changes.

      Don’t give up on yourself. To answer your questions, yes you detox everyday, for a set time frame – 7 days, 10 days, etc. it depends on the cleanse you are using – they will have length of time you should use product. Some detox programs may last longer than others so keep that in mind when planning.

      As far as food is concerned, organic is best especially during the time you are detoxing to help your body out & not add to the task at hand. Also, avoiding proccessed foods is very helpful, as well as, keeping hydrated.

      Hope this help.

      Wishing you the best during your detox & thanks for checking out my post.
