Are you tired of feeling clogged up? Are you tired feeling sluggish? Are you tired of feeling….tired?
Well allow me to introduce to you the world of 7-day body cleansing. In one week, you can relieve yourself of the following symptoms:
- Weight Problems
- Poor Appetite
- Foul Breath
- Mood Swings
- Low Energy Levels
- Weak Immune System
In other words, this is a way to forgive yourself for all that crap you consumed these past weekends. The 7-day body cleansing will help improve your digestive system by ridding it of mucus, toxins, and other waste matter that can trigger a slew of health issues. All you have to do is follow these 4 commandments.
Perform light exercise for at least 30 minutes per day
What is the point of trying to detoxify your body without exercise? That is like trying to play basketball without a basketball; it does not make any sense. Yet, many people who attempt body cleanses make that mistake. Exercise itself helps detoxify the human body by sweating, stimulating lymphatic flow, blood circulation and respiration– all of which are vital to eliminating toxins from the body. In addition, exercise improves heart, kidney, digestive system and liver function. By combining exercise with the 7-day cleanse, you double the cleansing effect. Due to limited nutrients that body cleanses provide, it is best to do only light exercise activities to prevent ill side effects.
Eliminate alcohol, candy, refined flour, fried food, soda or any processed foods
The reason you are cleansing yourself is because of all the food and beverages that have clogged up your digestive system. For the next 7 days, do not reclog your digestive system with the aforementioned toxic foods and beverages. Only fruits, vegetables, nuts, dairy, healthy oil, lean meats and water is allowed during this cleanse. Speaking of water….
Only drink water
Quick question: What constitutes about 60% of your body and you cannot live a few days without having? You guessed it: water. Amongst the many health benefits of drinking water, it flushes toxins, oxygenates blood and improves function of the digestive system.
In other words, drinking water is pretty much a cleansing method on its own. That is why you have no business drinking anything else but H2O during this 7-day cleanse. Aim to drink at least half of your bodyweight in ounces per day. (e.g. If you weigh 180lb, drink 90 ounces per day). Alkaline water can be a good alternative, learn more about what is alkaline water or see a complete guide on buying alkaline water machines
Keep stress to a minimum
Did you know that being stressed out negatively affects your digestive system? That is why it is essential to keep stress low while undergoing this 7-day cleanse. You may not be able to do much about your annoying boss at work but you can control how to deal with it. Do relaxing activities such as yoga and meditation for 20-30 minutes every morning to ease your stress.
Follow these 4 rules for at least one week and you will feel like a new person.
