A cleanse will improve your health. A cleanse will ease your mind and heal your heart. A cleanse will restore every system of your body.
At Atmanjai, we believe that doing a cleanse is the most important health tool you have in your hands today. It will benefit every aspect of your daily life. Because of all the processed food (sugars, preservatives, additives) and chemicals you are exposed to (cosmetics, medication, polluted water and air), the level of toxicity in your body is at an all time high. No wonder you put on weight, have difficulty coping with stress, your ability to relax and get a good night’s sleep is a thing of the past, or maybe there’s no energy to get started with an exercise routine. Then there is the constipation, skin problems, digestive discomfort, and the list goes on. You gotta cleanse, baby. Here’s what is in it for you:
As we mentioned, the chemicals present in the factory-made foods you eat, the personal care products you use, the air you breathe, and the water you rely on for keeping you alive—all those chemicals have a negative impact on your health. Your digestive system in particular suffers the most. Therefore, during a cleanse it makes sense to remove the irritants and restore your digestive tract back to its good shape and function.
When foreign-to-the-body chemical compounds enter the system, the body’s response may be to secrete mucus and fat to surround the dangerous molecules with. The mucus creates a systemic acidity and congestion; you are no longer able to eliminate waste form your body. On the outside of the body this will clearly manifest as extra ‘blubber’. It will show up on the scales as extra pounds. That’s when a cleanse is needed to clear the congestion and eliminate the mucus. What happens then? Your body returns to its ideal shape.
No More Food Cravings
If you would like to reduce cravings, a cleanse is the way to go. Many processed foods are stuffed with laboratory-produced chemicals which stimulate the right parts of the brain, other foods feed the bad gut bacteria, other ones spike up your blood sugar. Some time after your cleanse, you will notice that many of the cravings are replaced by an appetite for clean foods.
As you take a break from processed foods and stimulants, and as you include certain super-foods and botanicals during your cleanse, your energy levels are restored.
We’re sure you know many people who depend on alcohol to relax. They may also depend on stimulants, like coffee or sugary soft drinks, to get started with their day, then needing more coffee to get through the day, too. A cleanse helps rest your adrenal glands and balance the hormonal chemistry of the body. First, you may have a headache… then, you feel good!
Release Emotional Blocks
A cleanse may trigger different emotional states. Because certain addictive foods are removed from your daily eating routine, and because the bowel is cleansed with colemas, you may feel sensitive for a while. Or you may feel emotions which you haven’t felt for some time. This is normal and needs to be observed. You can learn many new things about yourself as you clean your body. The process isn’t always easy, but it is always useful long term. You release your emotional hang-ups, if any, and grow.
(During your cleanse, it’s good to do some yoga and meditation practice, those may be a big help.)
You may already know there’s a link between your gut and the brain. The clearer your gut, the clearer your mind. It’s that simple.
Reduced Constipation and Bloating
Constipation and bloating are so common today that you may think it isn’t possible to live without them. But don‘t despair just yet—your cleanse will bring your bowels back to harmony.
If you are able to incorporate healthy habits of having easily-digestible foods and regularly add digestive aids such as the apple cider vinegar, or maybe some dietary supplements such as a probiotic—bloating and constipation are eliminated.
Your Skin and Eyes
The benefits of a cleanse show up already during the program. You’ll love seeing how the your eyes recover their spark and the puffiness under your eyes or chin recedes. These signs are just the outer manifestations of a deep cleansing process that is happening all throughout the inside of your body.
A well-executed and properly organized cleanse should be followed by the creation of healthy habits in your daily life. That’s the hardest part for many of us!
