Cleanse Kit Instructions
Why Do We Need To Cleanse?
Your body has a natural ability to heal & cleanse itself, however it needs is the proper tools to ensure the process is efficient and effective. Since we’re up against an overwhelming amount of pollution in todays world, we inevitably will build pollution internally as well.
Some toxins that we take in on a daily basis include pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, fluoride, preservatives, MSG, smoke exposure, hormones in meat, perfumes, colognes, aerosol air-fresheners, hair spray, conventional cleaning products, hair dye, recreational alcohol, high-fat and processed foods, carpet cleaners, and heavy metals. We don’t immediately feel any negative side effects from these chemicals, however over time as they build within the body, we may begin to experience symptoms like brain fog, hormone imbalances, polluted blood, acne, eczema, low immunity, poor memory, low energy, sleeping problems, IBS, chemical or food sensitivities, mystery high cholesterol, and sluggish livers.
When you clean out those toxins from the body and support your body with the nutrients it needs, you can turn around those health problems. Your liver, which is the body’s detox powerhouse, takes the brunt of all the toxins we encounter in modern life. The liver works hard but it can only do so much in the face of a constant onslaught of toxins, high-fat foods, adrenaline and more, so over time it can become mucky, stagnant, fatty and weak. When the liver is overburdened, the entire toxic load of the body rises, causing more illness.
Whether you could just use a reboot to clean things out, strengthen your immune system, and help prevent future problems or you’ve been facing numerous chronic health issues for years, a month long cleanse can do wonders.
HOW TO USE THE CLEANSE KIT
We’ve created a simple cleanse kit that will give you a full body detox, with an emphasis on the liver, since its the most burdened organ by toxins and problematic diets. Our kit includes a detoxifying green powder, liver cleanse tincture and a nourishing tea.
Begin your morning with a 16 oz glass of fresh lemon water & liver tincture. Be sure your water is filtered and your lemon juice is fresh from the fruit (not bottled). Take 2 full droppers of the liver cleanse tincture either directly into your mouth followed by lemon water or add it directly into your water.
After you’ve taken your tincture, add 2 tsp of the green detoxifying powder into fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit juice, or coconut water and mix well. Drink quickly as the taste isn’t exactly pleasant.
Wait at least 20 minutes before eating anything so the liver has time to access the medicinal properties within the tincture and green powder. Have a nourishing breakfast that includes fresh fruit.
In the afternoon or evening, have your nourishing tea. Steep 1-2 tsp of herbs into hot water for 15 minutes or longer. Add honey and/or lemon if desired. You can make a larger batch of tea and keep it in the fridge, it’ll keep for 3-4 days.
HOW THE CLEANSE KIT WORKS
The cleanse kit provides a full body detox by cleansing and nourishing the liver, blood, digestive system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
The herbs in the liver cleanse tincture all work together to support the liver in opening its phase II pathway so toxins actually leave the body instead of being recycled back into the system. You can learn more about how the livers natural detoxification function works here.
The green detox powder is edible blue-green algae draws out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver. Heavy metals cause devastating effects once they build to a certain level, they’ve been linked to ADHD, ADD, autism, depression, OCD, mood disorders, Alzheimer’s, focus, concentration and memory loss issues, and much more. I firmly believe we should all being doing continuous heavy metal detoxes, its as simple as taking spirulina & barley grass juice powder.
The nourish tea provides the body with a potent dose of nutrition that nourishes the blood & nervous system. The body requires certain nutrients in order to engage in its cleansing functions, and the nutrient dense plants in the nourish tea provides the body with that. It stimulates the digestive system to clear out any waste, supports the liver in producing bile, and relaxes the mind and nervous system so we can switch into rest & digest mode.
DIET DURING A CLEANSE
Your diet should be focused on living, vibrant, plant based foods. Fruits and vegetables contain the most nutrition when they are raw or just lightly cooked. as too much heat damages most nutrients.
Be sure to stay hydrated! Water is necessary to help flush the body.
Try to start your morning with some type of fresh fruit, as the natural glucose found in fruit is fuel for the liver. Berries, apples, melons, pomegranate, peaches, oranges, bananas, kiwis, grapefruit are all superfoods for liver health. After you’ve had your fruit, enjoy a healthy breakfast like oats, sweet potatoes, eggs, dairy-free yogurt bowls, etc.
Try to only have meat at one meal per day, either lunch or dinner. Meat requires a lot of digestive energy, and we want the body to use its energy to cleanse rather than digest dense meals.
Avoid processed foods, fast food and sugary packaged food.
Focus mainly on a healthy plant based diet with an abundance of fruit and vegetables.
