Sometimes we just need a fresh start. Our bodies need a fresh start as much as our minds, jobs and sometimes, even relationships! We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘You are what you eat’. We know that is especially true just after the holidays while still reeling from the effects of too much alcohol and pumpkin pie. Cleansing your body with a diet cleanse detoxifies and strengthens your digestive and immune systems while boosting your energy at the same time. See how you can kick off the new year with a cleanse to jump start your way into maximum health.
The Master Cleanse
Mostly known as the ‘maple syrup and cayenne pepper diet’, the master cleanse involves drinking nothing but six to 12 glasses a day of a special concoction formulated to detoxify your body while slimming your waist. To make a single serving of the unique lemonade, combine:
2 T lemon juice
2 T Grade B maple syrup
1/10 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
10 oz filtered water
Candida is a yeastlike fungus found in the intestines and mouth. Symptoms of candida include fatigue, weight gain, joint pain and gas. To flush it out of your system, a candida cleanse is recommended. The cleanse is a diet eliminating all sugar, white flour, yeast and cheese for 7-14 days. Simply put, one is to eat only steamed or raw veggies, leaving out starch vegetables such as corn and potatoes, combined with a daily detox or liver drink.
Juice cleanses are known to aid the body by getting rid of toxins that have built up over time. It is recommended to begin with a 3 day pre-cleanse of healthy, light eating of organic fruits, vegetables, eggs and drinking 8 glasses of water a day. For the actual juice cleanse, drink 100% pure juice without preservatives or sweeteners for 3 days. Following the three day cleanse, return gradually to eating solid foods by following the pre-cleanse diet for 3 days.
