A Cleansing Diet Is A Great Healthy Regimen

Apr 13, 2008
Just a quick glance at magazines, TV ads, websites, or event tabloids in the last couple of years has probably alerted you to at least a few of the many detoxifying and cleansing products that are on the market. And, there's good reason for so much attention on cleansing diet regimens and diet detox programs. Bottom line is that they help the body to become healthier, with improved vitality and energy.

It is a fact that your body gets "cluttered" with a buildup of toxins and other assorted elements that need to be flushed from your system, especially in the Untied States where the standard American diet is less than optimal. A cleansing dietary plan does just that and gives your body the opportunity to release contaminants, toxins and the build up of digested "left overs" that can collect in your organs.

There are many different types of cleansing diet programs from which to choose. Some of these diet detox approaches simply focus on changing the basics of your diet. One such program recommends eliminating all "whites" from your eating plan. This means no more white flour, white rice, white pastas, or white sugar because of how they are processed.

There is also a diet which some consider to be too intense and a bit over the top, called the "master cleanse" or the "lemonade diet." This is essentially one type of raw food detox that uses a concoction of lemons, raw maple syrup, cayenne, and herbal formulas supplementation.

For a less intense, and perhaps more gentle approach, there are many options that utilize herbal formulas. There are various herbs that can facilitate the release of toxins and support healthy system functions in the body, and are said to be very beneficial when attempting to detoxify. Many of these herbal formulations are also combined with fiber that helps to cleanse the bowels as well.

Any good cleansing diet will serve to get the "gunk" and build up moved out of the bowels. Often, there are years and years of collected waste which becomes stuck to the lining of the bowels. This interferes with the absorption of nutrients and overall reduces the effectiveness of your whole digestive system.

In addition, many people have a considerable number of extra pounds actually stored and collected in their bowels. Following a cleansing diet that is high in fiber can help to move the old build-up out. This reduces weight, clears out toxins and simply helps your body to function more efficiently.

Another approach is the raw food detox plan. This is simply an approach of eating raw food exclusively for a period of time. Raw foods, because they tend to be very high in fiber, can also help to clean out the bowels and because the enzymes, vitamins and minerals in these foods are not destroyed by cooking, your body is supplied with nutritional cleansing agents that are very powerful and completely natural.

For many people who utilize a living raw food plan as part of their cleansing diet, they will discover that they are naturally inclined to eat more raw foods than they were before the diet detox. Since all experts agree that the majority of people do not eat enough fresh vegetables and fruits in their diets, they see this as a very good side effect of doing a raw food detox.
