The Best Way To Detoxify Your Body
What exactly is body detoxification?
Detoxification refers to the body's natural and constant process of eliminating poisons or toxins through the liver, kidneys, colon, lymph and skin. Although our bodies do it naturally every day, we do sometimes need an extra step to flush our systems. Through detoxification, we can successfully assist the body to eliminate dangerous toxins, chemicals, metals, parasites and other unwanted substances.
Basically, detoxification means cleaning the blood. It does this mainly by removing waste from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. It's all about cleaning and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health.
The Benefits Of Detoxifying
If the toxins we consume cannot be destroyed by our digestive system, detoxified by the liver, or eliminated by the lymph system (an important part of our immune system), they begin to build up. As they accumulate, they start to affect the body which can result in slow metabolism, low energy, reduced immunity, and can lead to serious chronic diseases.
A detox cleans out body waste deposits. After a cleanse, when the body starts rebalancing and energy levels rise, people tend to feel healthier, younger, more lively and, in general, better about themselfs and their lives.
The list of health issues that can be helped by detoxifying the body is endless, but here are some of the most common reasons why people choose to do it:
- Purify liver, kidney and blood
- Eliminate years of built up internal waste
- Increase energy and focus
- Lose weight
- Ease chronic pain
- Look younger
- Boost immune system
- Cure high blood pressure
- Get rid of acne
- Simply feel fantastic
The Best Way To Detoxify
The best way to detoxify body wastes is a simple method called - The Master Cleanser. This is the easiest, most delicious and effective cleansing available. It's been around for more than 60 years and it surpasses many other detox methods.
The original Master Cleanser (also known as the Lemonade Diet) developed by Stanley Burroughs in 1941, has recently been made famous by Beyonce Knowles, Robin Quivers, and Isaac Hayes. Beyonce announced on the Oprah show that she had lost 20 pounds on the Master Cleanse to prepare for her role in the movie - Dreamgirls.
This is the easiest way to regain your vitality and allow your body to repair and clean itself.
The Master Cleanse Detox or The Lemon Cleanse
The Master Cleanse involves eating no solid food. Instead, you drink a mixture of water, lemon juice, Grade B maple syrup, and Cayenne pepper.
The rules are simple. Each day you drink 6-12 glasses of the following mix:
The Master Cleanser Recipe:
- 2 tablespoons lemon (or lime) juice (approx. 1/2 lemon)
- 2 tablespoons of genuine "grade B" maple syrup (not maple flavored sugar syrup)
- 1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper
- 1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) of water, room temperature
Combine all the above ingredients in a jar and shake together.
Follow this for 10 days.
Detoxification does take determination and there will be times when you'll feel like quiting. So before you start you need to prepare both your mind and your body for the experience ahead.
If you decide to try it, you should definitely get yourself a copy of the original Master Cleanser Book by Stanley Burroughs (look below).
