Welcome to the New Year! Here is to a better year than those our world most recently experienced. Of course, this better reality will not come into being if you sit on your hands in wait for the hopeful glory of 2023. If you truly desire change in this New Year, you must take practical action. A 5 day cleanse could be what you and your body need to take on all that will come your way over the next 12 months. You may be familiar with the concept of a cleanse, which is why you find yourself here. But are you well versed enough in the intricacies of cleansing to tell your friends and family why you are doing a cleanse? Are you informed enough about the advantages of a cleanse to the point where you would boldly step out in search of these advantages? Before you dive headfirst into the vastly different lifestyle of cleansing, you should educate yourself on the top four benefits of doing a cleanse.
A mood booster!
So many of us are guilty of waking up and immediately finding our way to the coffee pot. Now, this is a good thing. But, when stimulants like caffeine or nicotine are used to “balance out” an individual, some side effects can go unnoticed. Should you choose to do a cleanse, you will begin to notice how you have changed due to these stimulants. How so? Well, without those stimulants, your body will begin to return to a more-normal chemical state. As a result, the general irritation or stress you try to manage throughout a given day will be noticeably lighter. Additionally, it becomes easier to take it all in stride when things do not go your way. Really, from top to bottom, life becomes more manageable, which seems like the best road forward, regardless of the circumstances.
Discover personal food sensitivities
Most people do not want to openly admit their body struggles to deal with specific food types. It causes awkward conversations and even dining experiences sometimes. Furthermore, some people are unaware they have issues with these foods. And yet, many eat what they know even if it actively does them a disservice. This hardly seems like a healthy way to go through life. Therefore, consider a cleanse because as you eliminate and reintegrate foods into your regular diet, you will have much clearer reactions and ideas of what is happening within your body. Yes, this will be a trying and arduous process. However, do you want to let your food dictate how you spend your time?
Power up your immune system
Food is one of many items with the potential to dictate your time. Your immune system is capable of this as well. If you catch a common cold, it can take a few days to return to your regular form. Anything worse, and you may be looking at a lifestyle change. Seeing as no person ever desires to be, or stay, ill, it seems more than advisable to be intentional in caring for your immune system. A cleanse accomplishes just that. Think of it this way, by giving your body time and space away from your regular food intake; it can focus its energy elsewhere. With the human immune system being one of the more vital systems, it is one of the first recipients of this extra energy. But enough about the details – remember that a cleanse is terrific for your immunity.
This is the “big one”. After all, it is somewhat in the name of cleansing. You may not be aware of or even feel the numerous toxins in your body. But take it in good faith; they are within you. Not only that, but they pose a threat to your overall well-being. To be blunt, you want these toxins out faster than you can say freshly squeezed lemons. The top advantage of doing a cleanse, and sticking to it, is the rapid removal of these toxins. That is not to say a cleanse is easy by any means. But that is a conversation for another day.
If there is one thing to take away from this writing, a cleanse will bring about a feeling of general wellness. While that is an oversimplification, it is a practical realization at worst and a life-changing launch pad at best. The choice between these two things is entirely yours.
