A Cleanse; Just for YOU!

Do we really need a colon cleanse? Isn’t the human body perfectly capable of filtering out impurities?

Well, according to leading health professionals an internal cleanse is now essential for optimum health.

“It is very necessary because our world is so toxic. We are ingesting, breathing, and coming into contact externally with toxins all day long and there are more environmental toxins then there has ever been and it’s growing,” says Dr. Tom Ziegler, a pharmacist at the Medicap Pharmacy in Ashburn, VA. “We need to do a cleanse to rid the body of those toxins.”

But let’s not assume that one size fits all. Because men and women have different physiological and nutritional needs, when it comes to internal cleanses there are different requirements for men and women.

For instance, companies like Yerba Prima are including Chaste-tree berry extract, the fruit of a small tree native to Central Asia which has been used for thousands of years to ease menstrual-related issues in women.

In addition, using a cleanse with both psyllium and bentonite provides a more complete internal cleansing.  Together psyllium and bentonite can deliver a one-two punch to waste and toxins accumulated along the digestive tract and colon.

On contact with water, psyllium seed husk thickens into a gel-like substance.  This acts like a broom to sweep waste from the colon. Working synergistically with psyllium, bentonite attracts toxins like a magnet binding them together as they move along the body’s digestive tract.

Your Body, Yoga-Body

In “The Yoga-Body Cleanse”, Robin Westen guides readers through a life-changing transition, eliminating the unhealthy choices many make on a daily basis.

The book begins with why “cleaning up your act” is necessary, and  what foods to avoid when cleansing your body. Ms. Westen also incorporates a survey into the book, allowing the reader to answer about fifty questions with Never, Occasionally and Frequently. At the end of the section, the reader tallies up their score and Westen provides them with an explanation of what their total means for their toxicity level.

The previous section builds up to the changing of the reader’s lifestyle which Westen begins with Ayurvedics. In short, these are principles that detox a person’s body and leave them feeling rejuvenated. She uses Ayurvedics along with the seven step program illustrated in the next chapter to prepare the reader for the “7-Day Yoga Body Cleanse”.

This “Cleanse” instructs the reader to diet intelligently, eating scrumptious foods with extremely beneficial vitamins and nutrients that strengthen the body and leave it satisfied. Using Yoga along with the dieting tools provided by Westen, the body will be relieved of toxins, endure less stress, and increase mental awareness and performance.

An excerpt from the book; “Partaking in the Yoga-Body Cleanse and renewing your precious self is not a one-time event….Once you’re aware of the toxicity and temptations, and you’ve gained the tools and commitment to change the way you live, a new and beautiful reality opens. Now you’re fully alive.” (Robin Westen)

Desserts Cure Obesity: “Sweet Feast Forever”

In 2005 Dr. Robert Schwarazberg advised Chuck Weiss to lose some weight, and so Weiss began counting calories and getting on the scale every morning. His initial weight loss was a huge success, but Weiss found that after his big first loss, the lifestyle of maintaining his weight was actually harder than the original weight loss.

Unwilling to give up sweets, but still dedicated to maintaining his weight, he came up with a new diet concept. Weiss allowed himself to chew sweets, but this time around he wouldn’t swallow, he would spit them right back out.

The new spit-out weight loss regimen worked so well for him that he chose to share it with the world. “You Must Tongue it to believe it,” says Weiss. After his new found weight loss success, he created DessertsCureObesity.com, which explains the medically approved program that has been successfully tested for more than eight years.
