It's never too early for a Spring Cleansing
By Dr. Eva Cwynar
Detoxing your body is essential for long-term success on any weight loss program. That's why I created a non-fasting, safe and effective way to cleanse your entire body of the toxins that are consumed daily. Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, medications, artificial sweeteners, rancid fats, food additives and pesticides all contribute to body stress, headaches, fatigue, insomnia and more.
Detoxing is not all about deprivation and starvation. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Detoxing involves a total indulgence of your body's needs, looking after yourself, and giving yourself the gift of a better body and a clearer mind.
Put most simply, detoxing involves giving your body a break from anything toxic, so that the body can work these toxins out of your system. The outcome of a successful and well-planned detox is that you will be likely to experience:
• More energy
• Clearer skin
• Weight loss
• Brighter eyes
• A stronger immune system
• Greater mental clarity
• Increased self-confidence
• A boost to your immune system
A detox basically cleanses your body, and makes you feel like you are bursting with energy and on top of the world.
Why is Detoxing Necessary?
The body is constantly in a flux of detoxing. However due to our diet, our heightened daily stresses, the toxic chemicals we ingest daily, and the increase in chronic degenerative diseases, the body often needs a helping hand so that it can work more effectively to eradicate these toxins from the body.
Cleansing the body of toxins gives the body a chance to repair and strengthen itself.
What Does a Detox Do?
A cleanse or detox helps to strengthen the organs that the body uses to flush toxins from the body on a daily basis. These include the skin, the lymphatic system, the intestines, liver, lungs, and kidneys. These toxins could invade the body from a variety of sources including the environment, foods, drinks, and a stressful lifestyle. Examples include alcohol, tobacco, pesticides, heavy metals, food additives, oral contraceptives, and even prescription drugs.
By removing your body's need to burn energy by digesting heavy, sugar and fat-laden meals and snacks that are difficult to metabolise, and which play havoc with blood sugar, your energy is released to cleanse and regenerate your bodies tissues and vital organs.
On my program, women typically lose 5-7 pounds, and men lose 7-10 pounds, all by detoxing the body. Your results may differ depending on your metabolism, and how diligent you are about following the program.
Our 21-Day Detox gently allows your body's organs to eliminate these toxins by supplying macro and micro-nutrients. These nutrients come in the form of a medical food shake and targeted supplements to support the process. You'll also receive balanced meal plans, recipes, snack ideas and other helpful tools.
Specific dietary recommendations, including types of proteins, vegetables and fruits will be provided once you embark on your detox program.
