Every day life gets a little bit harder–there are bigger stressors, toxic substances in the air and foods we eat and drink and of course, the pressure of daily life doesn’t help much either. These can all have quite harmful effect on our bodies so every few months or so it’s good to renew and detox your system. You might not think your body is hurt by things like car or truck exhaust or air borne toxins but over time it all builds up inside of you and ultimately you start to feel the effects.

For this reason, you need to run a detox for your body if you wish to regain your health–both mental and physical–and continue having healthy relationships with the people in your life. Our body has an awesome ability to mend itself, and has its own cleansing system, but with way too many pollutants in the body, it can use a bit of help. When the tissues in your body take on excessive stress, they start to not work properly which can trigger a bunch of different diseases and have a bad effect on the cleansing process. To help clean out your body, you can do a 5-day cleanse that doesn’t merely rejuvenate your body, it invigorates the spiritual part of your life as well.

The 5-day detox plan has a detox diet, in which specific foods are avoided completely, and consists of many fruits and green, leafy vegetables. When you go through a detox, you have to get rid of all of the synthetic ingredients, additives, oils and fats from your diet. Owing to being hard to absorb, you must also stay off of meats during these 5 days, or at least a couple of them. Beans, beets, broccoli, garlic and nuts are all great for this kind of diet. The only thing you ought to drink aside from water (the universal solvent) during one of these diets is grapefruit juice. One of the major factors in any cleansing diet is water–it clears all of the harmful toxins out of your body through your perspiration and waste.

You actually eat less food on a detoxification diet, but you are not going to starve. As you are only going to be feeding on healthy foods during your detoxification diet, you’ll find that you have quite increased vigor. If you aren’t sure about the cleansing procedure, you might want to talk with a nutritionist or a professional to figure out which one will be best for your body. You’re going to feel terrible in the beginning as the toxins get flushed out of your body but if you stick with it, you will start to feel more energetic and more physically and mentally aware. Everybody knows just how crucial it is to be clean outside but nobody thinks about what works best for being clean within.

You know yourself how well you are feeling, and if you feel run down in the least, you really need to think about a detoxification program. When you live in an environment that has lots of pollution, it’s difficult to keep the toxic substances out of your body.
