Every day we hear more and more about the devastating effects of widespread pollution on our planet’s environment. But how often do we stop to consider its effect on our bodies? We live in a world where toxins are found in the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the products we put on our bodies and even in the clothes that we wear. Over time, this toxic load takes its toll on the body. Slowly, but surely, our energy declines and our bodies begin to deteriorate. What starts out as a small ache and pain may eventually turn into something more serious unless we begin to take charge of our health and reverse the damage that is being done. Cleansing is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
Natural cleansing formulas are designed to support the innate processes the body uses to get rid of toxins and waste. A total body cleanse is one that supports each of our body’s seven channels of elimination—the liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, blood, skin and lymphatic system. Together, these vital organs and systems work nonstop to purge and eliminate harmful toxins from deep within the cells and tissues. A total body cleansing formula can help to clear the detoxification pathways and jumpstart the body’s natural cleansing ability.
Renew Life is an industry leader in cleansing and detoxification and has three full body cleanses to help no matter where you are on your cleansing journey. There is a formula specific to beginners and people sensitive to cleaning, one for advanced cleansers and people who are prone to constipation and even a quick powerful cleanse for those who don’t have a lot of time but want a product that can be effective.
How do I know which cleanse is right for me?
First Cleanse – Your First Step Towards Better Health
First Cleanse is a unique, 15 day all natural herbal cleanse, formulated specifically for the ‘first time’ or ‘sensitive’ cleanser. It is designed to stimulate the cleansing and detoxification process of the body’s 7 channels of elimination (liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, skin, blood and lymphatic system). First Cleanse is strong enough to be effective, yet gentle enough that it will not cause mild headaches or nausea that can result from detoxifying too quickly.
CleanseSMART – The Advanced Cleanse System
CleanseSMART is an advanced cleansing and detoxification program. This two-part cleanse is also designed to stimulate the body’s seven channels of elimination, but it is 4-5 times stronger than First Cleanse and more effective at eliminating constipation and improving bowel function.
Rapid Cleanse – When You Only Have 7 Days
If you only have 7 days to cleanse, Rapid Cleanse is your best choice for complete, total body cleansing. Rapid Cleanse is a powerful 3 part cleanse to detoxify all 7 of the body’s channels of elimination.
Renew Life cleanses are easy to take and there is no dedicated meal plan, although trying to improve your diet and drink more water is recommended. Dietary suggestions are included in the box.
Don’t Forget the Fibre!
Fibre while cleansing is a must. Fibre works to absorb toxins and eliminate them from the body. Soluble fibre acts like a sponge to absorb excess cholesterol and toxins and insoluble fibre ‘scours’ the intestinal tract and colon clean. FibreSMART is a unique, flax-based fibre that contains 50% soluble and 50% insoluble fibre. It also contains ingredients to help heal and soothe the digestive tract.
Herbal cleansing can help you feel your best every day. Talk to your natural health care practitioner if you’re unsure about whether it’s right for you. They can help you take the first step toward a healthier new you.
