Fact or Fad?: Cleanses are necessary once in a while

Our bodies are such smart machines, mechanically and biochemically. Our organs work independently but connected at the same time and produce enzymes (a type of protein ) and protein factors that help all those processes. Among those processes some of our organs (spleen, kidney, liver) have a “built in” detoxification system.

Drinking store bought or homemade juices or drinks will not in any way help your body detox or cleanse. There is no hard science or studies that show any benefits from those cleansing programs. On the contrary they can be dangerous for people with certain known or unknown chronic conditions (i.e Diabetes)

The only type of detox diet that is worthwhile is one that limits processed, high-fat, and sugary foods, and replaces them with more whole foods like fruits and vegetables. That clean-eating approach is your best bet to getting your body in tip-top shape.

The kind of severe calorie restriction associated with cleanse diets can also lead to muscle breakdown and feelings of extreme fatigue, as well as headaches, irritability, cramping and diarrhea.

There is a fact though: you will loose water weight and for some people to see that “movement” down on the scale can be strongly motivating.Like using the start of the New Year as motivation to change your life, initiating a cleanse for a few days before adopting a healthier well-rounded diet could have some psychological benefit.

If that is your case I suggest you look at our 1 DAY DIY JUICE DAY. Needs a little bit of preparation (shopping ahead of time and drinking lots of water before “the day of”)
