Modern life leads to toxic build up in the body which interferes with normal physiology. Cleansing detoxifies the body and allows the body to perform at more optimal levels. Cleansing reduces inflammation in the body and shifts the pH level towards alkaline. Cleansing improves the quality of the blood and improves cardiovascular health.

Common ailments usually relieved by cleansing:

Tendonitis, joint pain and other pain, inflammation and swelling, allergies, nasal congestion, gas, bloating, heartburn constipation and other digestive complaints, skin problems, headaches, fatigue, foggy-headedness and irritability.

Last year I had tendonitis in my elbow for 6 months. About 10 days into a 3 week cleanse, it was gone. It has not returned. My digestion improved, too.

Issues such as fibromyalgia can be significantly improved by doing a cleanse and then staying off inflammatory and toxic foods such as sugar.

Identify food intolerances

A cleanse can also serve as an elimination diet which can identify food intolerances. When it is time to start reintroducing foods back into your diet, do it slowly and pay attention to which foods trigger your symptoms. Then you will know and can decide to be symptom-free without the offending food or not.

Weight Loss

Last but not least, another benefit is weight loss. Keep some of your new habits and keep that weight off.
