Mindi and I have been feeling a little sluggish lately. We know we need to work out, and get in better shape. We decided to try doing a 3-day detox. We researched different detox regimines online, and felt that 3 day Juice cleanse was the best match for us. In short, you drink nothing but fruit juice for 3 days straight in order to help flush built up toxins from your body.
"The principle of fasting is simple. When the intake of food is temporarily stopped, many systems of the body are given a break from the hard work of digestion. The extra energy gives the body a chance to heal and restore itself, burning stored calories to rid stored toxic substances. During fasting, the liver and immune system are essentially freed to detoxify and heal other parts of the body. Many healers claim that fasting is a particularly useful therapy for the American lifestyle, of heavy diet, overeating, and constant exposure to food additives and chemicals. Some alternative practitioners have gone so far as to estimate that the average American is carrying 5-10 pounds of toxic substances in their bodies, for which fasting is the quickest and most effective means of removal." http://www.catherinewilbert.com/time-to-detox
