I don’t need to convince you that body detoxification is important. You’re here because you want to learn how to do a home detox – you already know how important it to take action against the toxins that are building up inside your body every day.
Not everyone is that smart. Some people aren’t aware that the foods we eat aren’t always completely processed by our bodies, or that the chemicals we’re exposed to in the environment can be stored in our fat over time. These people don’t recognize that the fatigue and sluggishness most of us feel on a regular basis can be avoided, prevented and reversed with a good body detoxification program.
But I understand how difficult it can be to determine which body detoxification program is right for you. After all, just because you recognize how important it is doesn’t mean you automatically have the knowledge of how to sift through the hundreds of different programs being advertised as “cleanses” or “body detoxes” on the market today. Never fear! I’m here to help you navigate these choices and determine how to perform a complete detoxification to flush the toxins from your body.
First of all, let’s look at some of the different products on the market:
* Pre-mixed cleansing solutions – These are typically liquids that you ingest either as a supplement to or a replacement for your regular meals. They’re pre-made, so all you have to do is open the package and go. Sounds convenient, right? Well, the problem is that you pay for the convenience. Pre-mixed cleansing solutions are one of the most expensive cleansing options, so unless you have a lot of extra cash lying around, they probably aren’t right for you.
* Tablets – If you walk into GNC or any other health supplement store, you’ll probably see dozens of bottles proclaiming their detoxification powers. But here’s the thing to keep in mind – supplements like these aren’t regulated by the FDA, so you never really know what you’re getting. Studies have even found some brands of supplements that contain nothing but sawdust and cellulose! Yuck! Let’s move on from tablets…
* Detoxifying foot pads – You’ve probably seen these if you watch any kind of late night TV infomercials. You simply apply the pad to your foot while you sleep and BOOM – when you wake up, toxins have been miraculously extracted from your body. You’re too smart to believe this is actually possible, right? Good – because the so-called “detoxification” products have been thoroughly debunked by scientific studies. The stains on the pads are the result of bamboo vinegar reacting with your sweat – not from any kind of miracle detox.
So if all these products are scams, what’s a want to-be detoxer to do? Personally, I recommend sticking with the one body detoxification program that’s been proven to work for more than 50 years. Know what it is? The Maple Syrup Detox (also known as the Master Cleanse)! This program involves replacing food with a spicy lemonade mixture for 10 days while your body goes to work processing all of those built up toxins. Best of all? It’s cheap, easy-to-do and can be performed in the privacy of your home.
