About the Cleanse

I?m a homeopath at Natureworks and I specialise in treating hormone imbalance.? I recently discovered this wonderful 10 day cleanse.? All the products* in the 10 day cleanse are:

  • Vegan
  • Non GMO
  • Certified organic (wherever possible)
  • Pure (no fillers or binders)

This means that even though they are a ?product? they are a completely natural ?food state? product which means that our body recognises it as pure food.

“I never thought I would ever do a cleanse like this”

I never thought I would ever do a cleanse like this because I was simply too afraid of what doing a cleanse would feel like.? I assumed that it would involve headaches, nausea, tiredness and a lot of hunger! Not to mention having to stop eating all those ?naughty? sweet foods we allow ourselves to eat as a treat or reward sometimes (I have a sweet tooth).

Much to my surprise it has been a revelation, I didn?t experience any of those things and in fact I felt really great!

Early Results

Following the cleanse I could tighten my belt two notches along and my skin really glowed.? I?m slightly embarrassed to admit that it was vanity that prompted me to do the cleanse when I did as I was going on holiday the following week and the thought of losing a few pounds meant I felt a little more at ease at the thought of wearing a bikini.

It?s Nourishment not punishment!

What is great about the cleanse is that it is deeply nourishing as well as detoxing.? This is partly because of the foods, but also because of the purity of the products.

The contents of my cleanse pack

  • A huge tub of supergreens ? cleansing, nourishing, energising
  • Cracked cell chlorella ? superfood that cleanses heavy metals
  • Black walnut ? herbs to deep cleanse our colon and bowel
  • MAP amino acid complex ? vegetarian protein to help build muscle and support weight loss
  • Ionic elements ? liquid minerals to support our vital organs and systems
  • Apothecherry ? tart cherry juice with antioxidants and melatonin to help sleep

Why we eat during a cleanse

I?m sometimes asked why foods are included in the cleanse if the products themselves are so nourishing. The answer is that the foods have a vital part to play. Most people really look forward to the times when they can eat, so it plays a part in motivation throughout the 10 days. It definitely helped me!

During a cleanse, certain organic fruit and vegetables are especially recommended for the nutrition they provide. They also help to ?retrain? our hunger; helping us become more likely to reach for healthy foods when we are hungry.

  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Watermelon
  • Berries
  • Greens (spinach, kale, broccoli)
  • Summer squash

Food for thought

Doing the cleanse really made me think about what other things in life do we never do out of fear.? I often say to my clients that we spend most of our lives fearing things that never actually happen.? This experience has really deepened my understanding of that idea and it has helped me to see that the only thing that ever gets in our way are ourselves and our thinking.? Certainly food for thought.

Following my cleanse I lost 7lB but most importantly I got incredible clarity of thought.? I was able to think much more clearly and had more focus/energy.? Not only that but my body was clearly absorbing water better because my skin felt much softer and my heels which are normally pretty dry were much more hydrated, something I?ve never seen before which got me thinking.

Not only is cleansing good for cleaning out toxins from the body but it must also allow the body to reset and by taking pressure off digesting substantial quantities of food you can actually absorb the all important water/nutrients from our food that we put in.? I hear people tell me all the time that they drink 2L of water every day but are you actually absorbing it??I?ve also noticed that I no longer crave sugar and that I don?t have the massive energy dips if I haven?t eaten.

If you?d like to try out the 10 day cleanse for yourself please do email me on [email protected] and I can send you the details or give me a call on 07588 820 409 to discuss in more detail.
