Our bodies are constantly accumulating toxins daily from the air we breathe, in the water we drink and bathe in. Not to mention the pesticides, preservatives and chemicals that now have become a part of our food chain. The Need for Cleansing is more important than ever.  The toxins accumulate in the cells and tissues and interfere with normal cellular function. This problem leads to a compromise of the immune, glandular and digestive systems and to a diminishment of overall health.  The accumulation of toxins in the body may lead to chronic symptoms, such as constipation, fatigue, irritability, brain fog, moodiness, organ dysfunction, immune collapse and disease.

It is absolutely imperative to our health that we cleanse our internal organs on a regular basis (quarterly is best) in order to remove years of toxins that is building in our bodies on a daily basis. Cleanse your digestive system and see how many symptoms disappear! --how much increased energy you experience.

Have you ever done an internal body cleansing before?  What did you do for the cleanse and what results did you see?

How to Clean Out Your System Safely Proceed with caution ... 

Every three months, Pamela Bryant, 50, stops eating food for at least 10 days to clean the gunk out of her body. When she's hungry, she drinks a concoction of lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup, laxative tea or saltwater. The popular liquid detox diet, known as the Master Cleanser, has few nutrients and is ridiculed by most nutrition experts. But Bryant swears it helps her lose weight and reduce cravings for sugar, caffeine and marijuana. When it's over, "you feel incredible," said Bryant, a Maui massage therapist. "You have way more energy, and all your vital organs are rested and detoxified."

Detox or cleansing diets can involve water, potions, fruit and vegetable juice, raw food, herbal supplements, nutraceuticals or a combination of approaches. Proponents say they're necessary because our bodies take a lot of abuse from modern life: overly processed food, alcohol, cigarette smoke, chemicals and environmental pollution. But some cleansing rituals aren't safe if used for extended periods, and there's virtually no scientific evidence that they work.

Conventional doctors, meanwhile, say the lungs, kidneys, liver and skin are perfectly capable of detoxifying on their own. Tennessee internist J. David Forbes agrees that the body's natural detoxification system is usually adequate. But "we're constantly bombarding ourselves with toxic stuff, mostly in the form of foods we eat," said Forbes, president of the American Holistic Medical Association. "We have to give the body a chance to catch up." At the very least, there may be an emotional benefit associated with starting over.

Here's how to try one safely:

Plan ahead. A week before you plan to detox, reduce caffeine and sugar (including excessive fruit juices) to avoid withdrawal symptoms, said nutrition and diet expert Ann Louise Gittleman, author of several best-selling books on detoxification. "Drink a cup or two a day of dandelion tea to shore up the liver."

Don't stop eating. Fiber moves waste through the body, and we get that through whole grains, beans and vegetables, said Kathy Freston, author of "The Quantum Wellness Cleanse" (Weinstein, $14.95). Fasting also slows down your metabolism. Choose plans that involve nutrient-dense foods. Fresh, raw and organic fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds will be your best choices. The liver works harder when it's dealing with heavy, greasy, refined foods.

Skip the laxatives. The seven-day detox programs based on fiber and laxative pills with little or no food "only tax the body's systems," said Delia Quigley, author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Detoxing Your Body" (Alpha, $18.95).

Time it right. Don't detox if you're overly stressed, said Laguna Beach, Calif., nutritionist Stella Metsovas. It adds more stress and can make you sick. Avoid liquid fasts if you have kidney or liver disorders, are pregnant, have an eating disorder or are on heavy-duty medications.

Take it easy. "You don't have to stop working, but allow plenty of time for rest and relaxation," said Gittleman. In the first four days, you might feel irritable, tired or have headaches, all signs that your body is detoxifying, she said.

Make it last. "Doing a 3- to 10-day detox diet and going back to smoking and eating McDonald's does nothing," said Dr. Melinda Ring, director of the Northwestern Center for Integrative Medicine and Wellness in Chicago. "It's how you live your whole life."

Liver Cleanse for Liver Health

Various naturopathic doctors suggest that a liver cleanse (also known as a liver flush or liver detox) is extremely important to the health of everyone. They contend that a liver cleanse will help clean the liver bile ducts that may be choked with gallstones and detoxify the liver.

Results from the Liver Cleanse:

Dr. Hulda Clark, PhD, ND, in her groundbreaking bestseller, The Cure of All Diseases, says that, “Cleansing the liver of gallstones dramatically improves digestion, which is the basis of your whole health. You can expect your allergies to disappear, too, more with each cleanse you do! Incredibly, it also eliminates shoulder, upper arm, and upper back pain. You have more energy and an increased sense of well being.”

Johnny Delirious, author of Hepatisis C, Cured suggests that the liver cleanse is what ultimately cured his HCV. He contends that you feel a significant increase in energy and overall well-being after the cleanse and suggests that those with Hep C get on a schedule and do Hulda Clark’s liver cleanse every two weeks to rid themselves of the hepatitis C virus and reduce liver fibrosis.

According to Puristat.com, “A liver cleansing can help with a fatty liver, cirrhosis of the liver, or elevated liver enzymes, and save you thousands of dollars and months of pain by facilitating the avoidance of needless surgery for gallstones. Liver cleansing diets and liver support supplements can help you avoid possible subsequent complications from liver disease, and the development of other afflictions related to an unhealthy liver.”

Precautions for the Liver Cleanse:

Consult with a physician prior to your cleanse, and follow your doctor's instructions concerning your medications. Remember, when you are detoxifying your liver, you will not receive full benefit from any medication because they may be flushed out with the cleanse, reducing their effectiveness.

A colon cleanse could be a good idea to do before a liver cleanse to ensure that blood that comes to your liver during the cleanse is as toxin-free as possible thereby reducing the strain on your liver.

Types of Liver Cleanse:

There are several liver cleanses that a person could choose from, ranging from very short to more drawn out and complex. I will mention just a few but you can find many more!
