Cleansing - A Necessity For Good Health


In today's fast paced society, it is easy to forget about our health. Most of us start out with vibrant health, but by the age 30, begin to develop 'minor' irritations. These 'small' health problems become more serious, causing our health to fall into decline. Eventually, chronic disease sets in and we long for the days when we could do simple things with ease and without pain.

We live in a toxic world with chemicals from factories, trucks, and pesticides. In 1989, over 5.7 billion pounds of toxic material was released into the environment in North America. Breathing polluted air, drinking poor water, and eating nutrient depleted foods is a deadly trio which is poisoning our bodies.

Our environment has declined further since 1989. Toxins are entering our bodies in record amounts through our food, air, and water. Dr. Brenda Watson, a naturopathic doctor and cleansing specialist states "The quantity of toxic materials entering our bodies is overwhelming. More alarming is the number of people 25 - 40 years old who are developing serious health problems."

"What is happening is that we are becoming very toxic. Our bodies cannot keep up with the tremendous amount of toxins we consume daily. It is causing us to 'breakdown'. "If we want to reverse this, we must take charge of our health and do the things necessary to ensure our bodies can cope", states Watson.

"The first step in taking charge of our health is to embrace cleansing and detoxification. In my opinion, cleansing is no longer optional, it is a necessity for good health and to reduce the risk of degenerative diseases" explains Watson.

Detoxification is the body's natural process of neutralization and elimination of toxins from cells, organs and the blood. The body processes these toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, urine, feces, exhalation and perspiration. Cleansing is the action of helping your body to perform detoxification more effectively.

One of the best ways to cleanse is by performing an herbal cleansing program. You will want to start off slowly at first, and then move towards a more 'advanced' cleanse. "If you are serious about your health, you must cleanse every 3-4 months. Toxins are continually entering the body and you must be diligent in helping the body eliminate them. The following are things that I recommend to improve the detoxification process" says Watson.

First Cleanse, a 15 day cleanse designed specifically for the 'first time' or 'sensitive' cleanser, works to gently stimulate the body's 7 channels of elimination. "When any of the channels become overwhelmed with toxins they cannot perform their detoxification processes properly". First Cleanse stimulates these channels and enhance the detoxification process. This allows the body to process and eliminate a greater amount of toxins in a shorter period of time.

Once you have finished First Cleanse, you are then ready for a more advanced cleansing product called CleanseSMART. CleanseSMART works to perform the same actions as First Cleanse, but at a much more advanced level and with more emphasis on the body's two main channels of elimination; the liver and the colon. "If you have cleansed before, this is the product for you," says Watson.

No matter which cleanse you are performing, you must take fibre along with it. Fibre works to absorb toxins that have been processed by the liver and brings them to the colon for elimination. However, not just any fibre will do. It needs to have a balanced ratio of soluble to insoluble fibre.

"The reason this is important is that most people are constipated (less than 2 bowel movements per day). Taking a soluble fibre, such as pysllium, can cause or worsen constipation. This is due to the fact that it is 97% soluble and absorbs 40 times its weight in water. If you are cleansing, and the body is dumping toxins into the colon for elimination, they will only get reabsorbed back into the system if you are constipated," explains Watson.

FibreSMART is a unique, flax seed based fibre that contains the needed ratio of 50% soluble and 50% insoluble. "This makes FibreSMART a good choice" states Watson.
