Every day we hear more and more about the devastating effects of widespread pollution on our planet’s environment. But how often do we stop to consider its effect on our own bodies? With more than 80,000 chemicals currently in use today and 1,000 more introduced each year, we can no longer deny that we are living in a toxic world. More and more research is showing links between chemical exposure and disease and since we don’t live in a bubble, what can we do about it? One of the answers is to detoxify through cleansing.
Natural cleansing formulas are designed to support the innate processes by which the body gets rid of toxins and waste. A total-body formula ensures a complete cleansing experience and is often the best way to begin your detoxification journey.
A total body cleanse is one that supports each of the body’s seven channels of elimination—the liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, blood, skin and lymphatic system. Together, these vital organs and systems work nonstop to purge and eliminate harmful toxins from deep within the cells and tissues. A total body cleansing formula will help to clear the detoxification pathways and jumpstart the body’s natural cleansing ability.
CleanseSMART is a unique, 30 day all natural herbal cleanse, formulated specifically to stimulate the cleansing and detoxification process of the body’s 7 channels of elimination. It is a simple 2 part, 30-day advanced cleansing program. Most of the herbs are extracts in a 4:1 or 5:1 ratio. This means they are 4 or 5 times more concentrated than a whole, raw herb. Part 1 is an organ detox formula, and part 2 is a colon cleansing formula that contains magnesium hydroxide to hydrate the colon, along with cape aloe, triphala and rhubarb to stimulate peristalsis, which helps to achieve the ideal 2-3 bowel movements a day. No strict diet is required while doing CleanseSMART but there are dietary suggestions in the box.
Herbal cleansing can help you feel your best every day. Talk to your natural health care practitioner if you’re unsure about whether it’s right for you. They can help you take the first step toward a healthier new you.
