Do you know that with a body cleanse you can look and feel younger than your actual years? Move through perimenopause, menopause, and beyond with grace, youthfulness, vitality and health. You can achieve all this naturally without drugs, hormone replacement or invasive surgery. How, you say?
When I decided to do detoxification I found myself looking inward and questioning some things that I’m going to ask you.
Your health, at any point of your life, depends on both your physical condition and your emotional attitudes about yourself and your life.
We all do not age at the same rate and scientist describes our aging in three different ways:
"Biological age is the key component of the aging process."
- Deepak Chopra, MD
From reliable research we know that if you eat an abundance of fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains, while reducing your consumption of animal fat, you’ll increase your chances of living a healthier and longer live.
For us to do all that the food has to be non-toxic, easy to follow whether you are cooking or when you are eating out and must be delicious.
That’s the foundation towards healthy living.
I discovered that by using food as a medicine, and it complements any medication you may be taking, is about making conscious choices and using the energetic effects of those specific foods, and how they are prepared, to support and heal conditions.
There is a wide variety of cooking styles we can use to create a desired effect within the body. But, it’s imperative to know when it’s best to use each.
To lovingly nurture your body through healthy foods, put these things into practice:
You become what you eat.
I am sure you have heard of first impression. We tend to notice an individual’s face and outward appearance first, because our appearance reflects who we are. Imbalances in our lives and within our body show up on our face and skin.
Our bodies’ energy will always seek health, in spite of what we may do to ourselves physically.
Our appearance reflects who we are – our physical health, emotions and spirit. The skin is the body’s largest elimination organ but its often overloaded with toxins and unable to expel the toxins.
I want you to know and understand that a body cleanse is not right for everyone. If your body is in a state of deficiency or weakness, a body cleanse is not the approach. It could make your condition worse as you deplete bodily reserves.
So if you are suffering from any of these deficiencies, (leukemia, muscular dystrophy, colitis, adrenal fatigue, to name a few) you need to build up your body before cleansing it.
When your detoxification systems are in good working order, we won't accumulate excess waste in our cells, organs and glands. But, if our internal detox system is congested, this contributes to a whole lot of health issues!
So lets partake of these foods that are available at different times of the year that helps our body to eliminate toxins, keeping our detoxification systems in optimal working order.
