An easy detox to cleanse your body for the new year

Learn the signs that you are in need of a detox and find out what foods to eliminate.

Cleansing isn’t about depriving your body of food or nutrients — instead, it is a chance to retrain your palate to acquire a taste for whole foods in their natural state. I strongly believe that eating wholesome, cleansing foods in order to bring your body to an alkaline state will balance your body in a way that will be beneficial for your entire life.

Approaching a cleanse in a healthy way can help you to re-establish a baseline and allow your cells and organs to function at their optimum potential. Cleansing also helps you introduce healthy, organic, and fresh foods to your diet, giving your digestive system a break while purifying your blood.

It is safe to do a one or two day juice fast, if you feel up to it, but it is not necessary. Cleansing is about eating fresh whole foods as the basis of all your meals: eating more salads, drinking more smoothies, and drinking lots of fresh water throughout the day. At the very least, start your day with a glass of warm water with lemon juice to get the process going — this is the easiest and best thing you can do to start your cleanse today!

Why you need to cleanse and detox

1. Detoxification is a normal process, where your body neutralizes and eliminates toxins through its major organs such as the colon, liver, kidney, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin — our bodies do this every day! But our self-cleansing system can get overloaded by our unhealthy lifestyles and exposure to environmental toxins, and sometimes it can use a little help.

2. There are many factors that contribute to toxicity in the body: processed, packaged foods; outdoor pollution and smog; pollution and harmful chemicals in the home, including in some shampoo, makeup, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, detergents, etc. Most of us come into contact with many of these factors every day.

3. We have limited control over the environment that we are exposed to; however, we have total control over the food we eat and the products we use on our body and in our homes.

4. We are exposed to too many harmful chemicals, through our diet (animal protein, saturated fat, caffeine, alcohol, and sugar) and through the environment. Even if your diet is good, a cleanse can restore your immune system and protect against environmental toxins that pave the way for disease-bearing bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

Signs and symptoms of toxicity
Here are some of the signs that a cleanse may be beneficial to your health:

  • Cravings for sugar, salt, starches, bread
  • Bloating and a gaseous, distended stomach or lower abdomen
  • Acne
  • Headaches, stomach aches
  • Lethargy, fatigue
  • Dry skin and hair, eczema
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Constipation, diarrhea (overall irregularity)
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of concentration
  • Weakened immunity
  • Weight gain and difficulty losing weight

How to detox your body with a cleanse
You can detox for as little as three days or up to a week. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Eliminate stored waste (you may even lose weight!)
  • Improved vitality and energy levels right away
  • Improved circulation through purifying the liver, kidney, blood
  • Enhanced mental clarity
  • A more regular heartbeat and immune functioning

What needs to be eliminated for maximum results:

  • Bleached and refined flours
  • Refined sugars (high-fructose corn syrup)
  • Table salt
  • Trans fats and refined oils (processed corn, canola, sunflower)
  • Meats treated with hormones or antibiotics, farmed fish
  • Foods sprayed with pesticides and herbicides
  • Genetically modified foods and oils
  • Dairy products
  • Additives and preservatives (nitrates, sulfites, flavourings, and colourings)
  • Fast foods, fried foods
  • Sodas, juices with added sugar
  • Tap water
  • Coffee, cigarettes, and alcohol

Easy Way to Cleanse Your Home of Negative Energy – mindbodygreen

Easy Way to Cleanse Your Home of Negative Energy

Spring is the perfect time to clear out the old to bring in the new. Of course, clearing clutter is the first step in cleaning your space. The second step, is to do a space cleansing where you remove the energy debris that has built up over time. Once you perform the cleansing, the energy of the space lifts, brightens, and circulates freely. Then, implementing feng shui becomes a breeze.

The energy debris can be a result of negative emotions, thoughts, occurrences, and stress that you have experienced in your space. Your house is like a sponge. Whatever transpires in your environment is absorbed into the walls, furniture, carpet, ceiling, and objects. Frequently, these negative energies accumulate in the corners and tucked away places. Also, if you had a negative event happen recently or a lot of sadness or fear, cleanse your space immediately! Visualize space cleansing as wiping away dust bunnies from the past.

When Should You Space Cleanse?

The following situations are appropriate times to s.

pace cleanse:

  • After you remove clutter
  • After an argument
  • When you move into a new space
  • When a roommate or companion moves out
  • After a divorce or break-up
  • After an illness or death
  • When you buy an antique or second-hand item
  • Anytime you desire fresh energy for a new project or beginning.
  • Before implementing feng shui
How to Cleanse a Space:
  • Here is a simple space-cleansing technique to perform on your home, office, or even on a specific object:
  • Create a strong intention in your mind to clear the space in order to bring in vibrant, healthy energy.
  • Burn sandalwood incense or dried sage to disintegrate the negative energy in each room. (Buy incense from India, Japan or China as the energy is stronger.) Wave it counterclockwise in each corner, closet, and cabinet. You may also let one stick burn in each room. Say, “Thank you for the complete disintegration of all negative energies, thoughts, and emotions from this room now.”
  • After cleansing, always open East windows and doors to allow fresh energy of the sun to enter.
  • Light a candle to dedicate energy to your endeavors. Say your wish out loud. For example, “I am so grateful for all the love, harmony, and healthy energy pouring into my home right now.”
  • Imagine brilliant white light filling the whole space. Visualize your home or office as a shining star emanating light, positive energy and blessing to everyone who enters.

Feel confident that the energy in your home is fresh and ready to receive all the opportunities Spring has in store for you.

Nobody’s Poem

You don’t know a thing.
You can not comprehend.

Why do I suffer for a life you must pretend?
If you’re so proud why can’t you speak?
On the evil you create.

I’ll cut your heart and watch you bleed,
Closed circuit, stalked and faked.
There was a time not long ago,
Let’s call them golden days,
You drew a line I can’t forgive,

Now your chance has gone away.

I forgave this, I forgave that.
I pleaded and I begged.
And every time I cried out loud
You all just walked away,
And with no one to turn too
The rage just filled my soul.

Now all I can truly do
Is push to watch you go.

A broken heart is one thing,
A broken minds too far,
And when I snap they’ll never speak
On the demons that they are.

Sometimes I like to drift away
But I never hurt no one.
Chase a butterfly or two
And contemplate the sun,
And when I go we’ll all know
This secrets on the shelf,
And when I go I hope you know
You brought this on yourself.
