Last week we talked about how to cleanse your body from Heavy Metals, a major precursor to illness and disease.
Next week will be a "How To" On deep liver cleansing, to heal disease in your body.
I will share how I healed over 8 autoimmune illnesses in my body ...
This weeks topic will be on "Everyday Cleansing"
...things we can do every day to keep our bodies healthy and happy.
The first thing I like to add to my daily routine for cleansing is juicing 1/2-1 lemon in water every morning and drinking it first thing, then wait 20-30 minutes till you eat or drink anything else.
It helps you to rehydrate, and cleanses toxins out your liver. Lemon juice activates the water to latch onto toxins and to help flush them out of your system, much better than just water alone.
The second thing for daily detoxing is tea.
Tea tastes great, gives you a break from drinking water, and has amazing health benefits!

EAT YOUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
The next thing in having a daily healthy cleansing diet is eating lots of fruits and vegetables. I talked about this in a previous Blog Mom was right Eat Your Fruits and Vegetables.
At least 1/3 of every meal should be a fruit or veggie, you can even work up to 1/2 if you would like.
These foods contain live nutrients that give your body real nutrition, power and energy; and help to cleanse and heal your body, instead of eating the dead or inert ingredients in a lot of the foods that we eat today.
These other foods just fill you up, but don't give your body a lot of the true nutrition like fruits and vegetables do to keep us healthy.
Enjoy your fruit! Our bodies, liver and brain run on glucose, the sugar that is in fruit.
As an example, having a banana or mango right before bed gives your brain the glucose it needs to help you have a better nights sleep.
These fruits actually balance blood sugar:
We have developed a fruit fear, with diet fads such as KETO, and other fads that go in and out of style.
God infused these delicious delicacies with some of the most powerful healing nutrients on the planet....SO ENJOY!
LOWER FAT INTAKE
To cleanse your liver you need to keep the fat levels in your blood low.
If your blood has too much fat in it, it has lower levels of oxygen in it.
This puts your liver in bile production mode to process these fats and thin the blood so your oxygen levels can go back up again.
We need oxygen in our blood to feed our organs, especially our brain and heart....!!!
When we eat fat, it changes our liver function from removing toxins out of the liver to producing bile to digest the fats that are being ingested.
If we are continually eating fat then our liver never has a chance to cleanse and release toxins properly...
Therefore getting stagnant, fatty and sluggish!
I recommend if you want to focus on gently cleansing; to not eat any fat until the afternoon or evening.
If you can at least go fat free for breakfast that will go a long ways to helping your body detox.
Have a fruit and greens smoothie for breakfast, a big salad for lunch, and a regular dinner.
There is a lot you can do if you know what to watch out for, and how best to support your body.
You can do a lot for your body if you even do a gradual cleanse, like I have described above.
Really....It's just a healthy way to eat and would be beneficial to have this as your main way of eating.
It just may take a little time to re-focus on how you create your meals, but once you get the hang of it, it is not hard.
THE KEY IS PLANNING!!
Make a weekly menu when you go shopping with yummy healthy recipes. Then you won't get stuck in the I'M HANGRY situation and eat whatever is fast and convenient.
It just takes a few minutes to get it together, but having a menu will be a major help for you throughout the week to stay healthy and have the variety you want.
I have purchased some great cookbooks, and I choose 1 per week to get my recipes out of and then switch throughout my cookbooks weekly.
Sure we all need to cheat here and there, just enjoy when those special times are around, and then get right back to it.
If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment below!
One of my favorite drinks to have while cleansing.
Make up a pitcher and have it on hand to drink throughout the day.
4 C Water -Divided
2 tsp Hibiscus tea or 2 tea bags
1/2 C Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
4 TBL Raw Honey
Boil 1 cup of the water and add the Hibiscus tea, steep 10-15 minutes. Strain and place in the fridge to cool.
In a bowl mix the remaining water, lemon juice and honey until dissolved.
Mix two together when hibiscus mixture has cooled.
