Detoxification (detox), also know as cleansing, may conjure up images of people in sweat lodges dripping toxins from their bodies. Or maybe you think of people fasting for days to cleanse the impurities from their bodies. I want you to know, neither of these images are correct (or particularly user friendly!). From a scientific perspective, detoxification refers to the body’s natural methods of self cleansing or ridding toxins that are being stored in various areas of the body.
The health benefits of detoxing are undisputed but the many commercial methods to achieve it are filled with myths, misunderstanding and ineffective and expensive treatments.
Today, there are detox foods, drinks, and detox diet plans. Advertisers would have you believe that you can achieve results by popping open a drink or eating some rare fruit that’s only found in Brazilian jungles! It’s no wonder that detoxing is a confusing subject to most people.
We need to detox detoxing ! Let me break it down for you.
I created a complete body cleaning program called the RENEW program. The program was developed over twenty years of research and testing. Some key features are:
- You start the detox process very slowly in order to reduce the “die off” reactions that people can experience when they try to cleanse too quickly. Does this sound familiar to you? Within the first days of over-zealous “detox shock” treatments, you may have become run-down, irritable, depressed, nauseous, or fixated on food. You may have also experienced headaches, diarrhea, or dizziness. Those unpleasant experiences may have been enough to make you want to give up. Most of all, I don’t want that to be your experience!
- The RENEW program uses your body’s own natural detoxification processes to eliminate toxins such as cigarette residue, chemicals, heavy metals and environmental elements. Instead they can be converted to waste, which is then easily eliminated from the body. RENEW gently stimulates your body’s natural channels of elimination including the colon, lungs, skin, and kidneys. Ultimately the RENEW program supports the liver and lymphatic system which results in purifying the bloodstream.
- By targeting the bloodstream, the RENEW program replenishes the cells, tissues and organs of the body. Ultimately, the goal is to restore your blood so it becomes as pure as possible. This can only be achieved by a program that targets the total body like RENEW.
