Welcome to the Alphabiotic Balance Center's blog for Alphabiotics, Clinical Nutrition and general wellness advice.
Is a cleanse on your new years resolution to do list?
Cleanse your colon, cleanse your life!
If I had a dollar for every time people said that they were 'on a diet but not seeing results' I would be – well richer than I am now. Analogies are my go to so here is one: When it is time for an oil change you cannot just keep adding oil in your car year after year because you are mixing new with old and this simply will not make for a vehicle running at its optimal best. Our bodies work the same. Simply going on a diet or changing the way you eat is just not enough. You need to clean your pipes first. In my last blog I wrote a step by step liver and gall bladder cleanse which I highly recommend you do every 6 months . Cleanse your Liver, Cleanse your Life.
Humans can carry up to 40 extra pounds of toxic build up in their colon alone. This not only puts a dampener on that summer body but more importantly is a breeding ground for disease. A colon cleanse is simple and just takes dedication, a few inexpensive ingredients and 10 days out of your year and I recommend doing it once a year.
#1 (single serving):
-2 Tablespoons of organic lemon Juice (about 1/2 a Lemon)
-2 Tablespoons of Organic grade B maple syrup or agave
-1/10 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder
-Ten ounces of filtered water
#2 (60 oz. daily serving):
-60 ounces of filtered water
-12 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup
-12 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice
-1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
There are a couple important things to remember when preparing the lemonade.
For one, the lemon juice must be fresh squeezed and organic.
Also, the maple syrup must be grade B maple syrup, not the sugar filled syrup that gets drenched on pancakes!
The cayenne pepper helps to break up mucus and increases healthy blood flow. It is also a good source of B and C vitamins.
While you are cleansing, drink 1 teaspoon of unrefined non-iodized sea salt in a small glass of water to help flush out your system. Do this first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed.
The most common question is whether you can eat any solid food whilst cleansing. The answer is ideally no but some people struggle to get through the entire 10 days. If you absolutely must eat a little bit then stick to light foods like salads and vegetables or drink one green juice per day. Absolutely no meat, dairy or gluten.
After day 10 incorporate fresh squeezed orange juice and light meals. Stay away from meat, dairy and gluten for 3 days after the cleanse so that you don't jump straight back into stressing the digestive system.
- Psyllium - which is a soluble fiber that is found in many over-the-counter products for keeping the digestive system regular.
- Flaxseed - This herb seed is also a bulk-forming fiber that works by adding mass to waste matter in the intestines, helping to ease bowel movements
Good luck! Actually good dedication! You are going to need it!
