Cleaning the outside of the body is something most people do on a regular basis.
When it comes to cleansing our inner body, it’s not something everyone thinks or does.
We live in a toxic world and toxins are everywhere. Chemicals are processed into our food, used in cleaning products, perfumes and cosmetics, and synthetic hormones from plastics leach into our environment.
Added to this are unhealthy lifestyles where too much saturated fat, sugar, salt and white flour products are consumed daily. Fatty liver disease is becoming more common.
As a result, toxins build up in our bodies, putting extra strain on our organs and making it harder for cleansing organs like the liver and colon to do their job.
Therefore, it is not surprising that people complain of digestive issues, constipation, frequent headaches, fatigue, bad breath and skin ailments.
All this is proof that the body is trying to get rid of the toxins loaded on it.
Therefore, the benefits of an internal cleansing are great, especially when herbs are used.
Herbs are often used in a cleanse as they work effectively to cleanse organs and help them perform more efficiently. Herbs like dandelion and burdock work to cleanse the liver and colon. Plants such as uva ursi cleanse the kidneys, another important elimination organ.
Benefits of Cleaning
The benefits of cleaning are significant, especially if a person is cleaning for the first time.
Weight loss is a welcomed effect. They perform better when the elimination organs such as the liver and colon are cleared, resulting in a faster metabolism.
Herbalists should also monitor their diet more closely and eliminate foods that aggravate them in the first place. Weight is lost more quickly when foods such as sugar, saturated fat and white baked goods are avoided. Sometimes cleansers report losing 5-10 pounds, depending on the person.
So weight loss is an important benefit. But perhaps even more important is the extra energy that a purification provides. When the body is working more efficiently, at a higher level, you will feel more energetic and will be able to do things you didn’t want to do before purging.
Along with energy is more stamina. Whether it’s walking, dancing, cleaning or getting through the day, a purified person can last longer.
Improved digestion is another benefit of purification that depends on more energy. When the body is able to digest food more effectively, this results in better utilization of nutrients and more energy.
An improved digestion also means that people can sleep better with healthier, deeper sleep. This means they will wake up feeling refreshed with more energy.
Clear skin is another great benefit of cleansing. Rashes, eczema, acne, psoriasis and other skin disorders are more likely to improve after cleansing. The skin is the largest elimination organ after the liver and colon. When the liver and colon are working efficiently, toxins do not need to come out of the skin.
Finally, some individuals report a greater awareness of enhanced senses. They can hear better, taste better, and are more aware of their surroundings.
