If you're planning to do a natural cleanse this spring to improve your health and wellness, there are several factors to consider prior to cleansing in order to get the best results. Often, jumping into a natural body cleanse can feel exciting at the time, but may not actually be the right choice for your body, goals or lifestyle. Besides, what's the point of doing a natural cleanse if it doesn't lead you to your desired results?
Another issue that can arise when choosing a cleanse is deciding which one- amongst hundreds of options- is right for you. There
To help determine which method of natural cleansing is right for you this spring, here are five factors to consider before taking the leap to improve your health.
1. What are Your Goals?
The first thing to consider before choosing a cleanse is what you wish to achieve once you've completed it. Are you hoping to experience natural weight loss? Increase your energy? Improve your digestion and get rid of the bloat? Perhaps you're going for all of the above.
Luckily, most cleanses are designed to achieve all of these results. That's because the majority of natural cleanses aim to support the digestive system, which is comprised of your primary organs of elimination: the liver, kidneys
Knowing how you want to feel and what you wish to achieve by doing a natural body cleanse can help you decide on the length of time you choose to cleanse for, and which cleanse you choose to get there. For example, if your primary goal is to have more energy, you may choose to do a
As you can see, there are many options and variables to consider when choosing a natural cleanse. Knowing exactly how you'd like to feel and what health goals you wish to achieve
2. Your Toxic Load
Before jumping into a natural cleanse, it's important to consider your current state of health. While I applaud those who wish to challenge themselves with a prolonged or intense natural cleanse, doing so can actually cause more harm to the body, and lead you to become discouraged early on.
First off, I'll note that "detox symptoms”, such as fatigue, nausea, skin breakouts, diarrhea, cravings
A high toxic load refers to
No one is entirely exempt from toxins. We're all exposed to toxins on a regular basis, regardless of whether we eat organic, filter our water and use organic household cleaning products. But if your diet has recently consisted of processed foods, alcohol or sugar, or you've taken heavy doses of antibiotics, it's possible that your toxic load is higher- and therefore your detox symptoms may be more severe. Your digestive system may also be suppressed to do various factors, such as illness or a lack of friendly bacteria in your digestive system, which makes it harder for it to do its many jobs.
In this case, it's best to start out with daily "gentle” cleansing. Gentle cleansing can be as simple as beginning your mornings with lemon water and a green smoothie with chlorella
The importance of meeting your body where it's at in terms of cleansing cannot be stressed enough. Chances are, if you're feeling awful (beyond what's to be expected during a cleanse), not only will you not see it through, but it could actually create more stress for your body.
3. Are You Eliminating?
To further elaborate on choosing a cleanse that supports your current state of health, it's crucial to make sure your body is properly eliminating before doing a cleanse- otherwise you risk reabsorbing harmful toxins back into your bloodstream, rather than eliminating them. Proper elimination suggests that you must be going to the bathroom at least once per day, preferably after every meal (and we're talking good quality poop- think: big brown bananas!). It's interesting to note that according to Ayurvedic Medicine, you're actually considered constipated if you only go once per day instead of after every meal.
I understand that this concept seems like a natural cleanse catch twenty-two: in order to do a cleanse, you must be
If you stop eliminating, the toxins that are getting ready for elimination aren't leaving your body. Not only does this defeat the purpose of doing a cleanse, but toxin reabsorption can create more harm in your system in the long run.
4. Preparation and Scheduling
Depending on what type of
In order to succeed on your natural cleanse, it's important to consider how the
Planning ahead for your natural body cleanse, and knowing exactly how you can work the requirements of your cleanse into your schedule will set you up for success. Doing so will avoid unnecessary feelings of failure or discouragement, and instead leave you feeling empowered and successful until the very end.
Knowing which factors to consider before doing a natural cleanse is important, but speaking with a qualified healthcare practitioner who can assess your current state of health prior to cleansing is also encouraged. From there, you can determine which natural cleanse is right for you.
And hey, it doesn't have to be spring to cleanse! You can cleanse daily (and very easily) by adding Sun Chlorella tablets or Sun Chlorella granules to your diet. Sun Chlorella can be added to raw food recipes, homemade salad dressings, smoothies
