Detoxifying Is a Vital Key to Enjoying a Vibrant Life

Your cells are dying every day and of course, you want to live the longest possible in good health! The trillions of cells in your body consume heaps of oxygen and nutrients to keep you alive and active throughout your day. Dead cells accumulate in your tissues when they are not eliminated through your sweat glands, lymphatic system, urine or in a bowel movement.

When you are tediously working by pressing obligations of taking care of a family and work over-time, your health may suffer from neglect, because you normally won't allocate enough time to exercise or eat properly. You'll be eating on the run and perhaps may grab a processed food bar to snack on or worse yet junk food. It is necessary to improve your health by giving it a healthy boost from time to time! This is exactly what periodically detoxifying and fasting does for you.

You can choose to fast for a couple of hours on water or drink fresh vegetable juice with fruit juice for a half a day or a full day. Then gradually introduce solid food in moderation. I enjoy drinking whole fruit and vegetable juice from a professional juice machine from time to time. And I also enjoy drinking bottles of Bolt House Farm juices, when I am too lazy to juice fresh fruit or vegetables. There are many juice concoctions that are beneficial for your health, and that heals various ailments. One book I find extremely informative is “The Green Smoothie Bible," by Kristine Miles. This book is a fabulous guide to mixing over two hundred health drinks.

It's Extremely Important to Fast at Night

Living in today's high-tech world calls for periodic fasting and internal cleansing to help keep your organs working at peak efficiency. You are a result of everything you eat and breathe! Our modern world exposes a person to certain toxic substances produced from industrial waste in the air you breathe, petroleum byproducts and automobile exhausts. This is why it is important to filter your air at home too with a Hepa filter in your air conditioner and vacuum cleaner.

One quick way to promote your body's detoxification process from the ingestion of these dangerous poisons is to drink a load of fresh, clean water, and to make sure you have one or two bowel movements every day.

This brand new way of living by periodic fasting is extremely crucial, a healthy life depends on this to thrive. It's essential to fast at least twice throughout the year to live a more energetic life. Your unfailing looks will shine too, and your spirit will beam, and so will your outlook towards life!

Many notable packaged food products and organic fruits and vegetables are found at a Whole Food's Supermarket. It's imperative you look for such grocery stores to augment your health!

The Master Cleanser

When you pair your fine eating habits with a weekly exercise plan, you'll dramatically improve the status of your health. In The Master Cleaner book, Stanley Burroughs alludes to the fact of using lemon water to cleanse your internal organs and to easily eliminate toxins.

First thing in the morning for a few days, but not for more than ten days, combine two tablespoons of lime or lemon juice and maple syrup with a one-tenth teaspoon of cayenne pepper, along with warm water.

Stanley Burroughs promises your digestive system will rest and help to heal you from the inside out. If you are sick and need to lose weight you'll also feel better and drop a few pounds or more. This occurs since the cayenne hot pepper breaks up the mucus stored in your body. Mister Burroughs absolutely refutes the eating of honey, because he claims it is extremely damaging to your liver, pancreas, and spleen. Therefore, you should stay away from eating honey and artificial sugar of all types.

For Optimal Health Remember to Vacation Every Year

In addition, make sure you take an unforgettable vacation every year too. People who regularly take vacations build stronger bonds with their family and create lasting memories that last a lifetime. They find time to take a break to unwind because life cannot always be at work, work, and more work.

You must wind down to find time to take good care of yourself. This is easily done during a glorious vacation and you can remember to fast for a day too. This will demand discipline on your part to slow your digestion for a day or a few hours during your vacation.

  • Some people believe the less you eat, the better off you are since your energy will skyrocket naturally. You'll feel healthier overall by not being burdened by an overactive digestive system.
  • Furthermore, note, fast accordingly to build your energy reserves, your mood must relatively be good, or else your fasting will go haywire and work against you. Instead of creating endorphin's you'll be creating cortisol, a stress hormone that is notorious for breaking down cells. This process may make you feel depressed and a tad nervous.

So, it is equally important to make time to relax every day and also go on vacations from time to time. Remember to fast periodically throughout the year to live longer and in great health.
