The code words for Full Body Detox are: Cleanse, Build and Replenish.
Its important to match the level of health of a person wanting to fully detox the system with the right intensity and level. When a person is young, body detox can be intense. Then again it does not have to be to get good results.
When a person is older and weaker, less intense is better. Wastes stirred up for removal cause flu like symptoms when the organs of elimination become overloaded. You can reduce the negative effects of flu like symptoms by getting the eliminative organs working well before pressing detoxification.
Backing off and moving slower when flu like symptoms appear make the cleansing process more tolerable.
One of the basic principles of full body detox is that the deeper you want to go, the more you must work to condition and open all the organs of elimination. Additionally you need to replenish the resources (nutrients) used in the detoxification process.
The organs of elimination are: 1. colon, 2. liver, 3. kidneys, 4. skin, 5. lungs, 6. lymphatic system. Each organ has a different role and function. When one is sluggish likely all are sluggish.
Various levels of cleansing:
1. Activating liver and colon
2. Activating liver, colon and stomach
3. Activating liver, colon, stomach, kidneys
4. Activating liver, colon, stomach, kidneys, skin and lungs.
Working at level four for example, mobilizes more cleansing resources so a deeper cleanse of tissues is made possible.
Cycling detoxification follow the 80/20 principle. The 80/20 rule means receiving the most for the least, the most result for the least effort.
As a normal principle, the body will detoxify to a certain level, rest and then restructure and create a new set point or balance point. This is the principle of homeostasis.
The body sets of barriers to change to maintain life. The body resists change towards health and away from illness and moves slowly in either direction.
Some common cycles of cleansing are as follow:
1. Daily cleanse
2. Two day cleanse
3. Three day cleanse
4. Seven day cleanse
5. Fourteen day cleanse
6. Twenty-one day cleanse
The two day cleanse may be the ideal for the modern lifestyle with limited time and energy resources. It can be done on a weekend when time is available away from work. It does not take so much away from energy reserves so a person can still work during the week.
Remember that it takes energy to detoxify. Recovery requires rest. Testing the limits of your basic health and strength level is not recommended.
A daily cleanse is meant to be mild enough for daily use. A goal is to keep the bowels open and working efficiently and to replenish the nutrients needed in the detoxification process. Another goal of the daily cleanse is to improve the diet and being sure to drink more good quality water.
