How To Lose Weight The Healthy Way – Part 2 – Detox and Cleanse
DAY 2 DETOX and CLEANSE
Toxic rebound is another reason for putting o weight again over and over. Fat is protective of our bodies. It literally encases toxins in our bodies so they can’t harm us. When the amount of toxins exceeds what our body can process at one time, fat will encapsulate the toxins to keep them contained. The fat stores it away. That’s cellulite. We all hate it. That’s why you often see skinny people with cellulite. It’s basically our body’s way of protecting us from toxins. And when our body is toxic, we put on weight to restore the fat – toxins ratio.
So we need to cleanse our system to be able to loose weight.
1. Decrease the number of toxins you’re taking in. Anything processed and synthetic is toxic. I’m not only talking about food, but products we use as well. Your shampoo, body care products, candles, make up. As there is no legal definition for the word NATURAL in cosmetics, the companies get away with a lot. I recommend downloading Think Dirty App yo see what is in the products you are using. You will be shocked. At least I was.
2. Increase the water and detoxifiers/binders intake. Essential oils, raw foods, fresh juice, chia seeds, parsley, cilantro, aloe, charcoal and good supplements, such as Young Living’s ICP. ICP helps keep your colon clean with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out resides. Healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body. ICP provides ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption and help maintain a healthy heart. ICP provides 2 g of dietary fiber, 1 h of soluble fiber and 1Grade of insoluble fiber per serving. These will help you loosen and flush the old toxins from your system.
3. Change your diet. At least for some time, try and cut out or decrease the amount of gluten, dairy, sugar and processed food. Focus on eating lots of vegetables and fruits, eat “real” food. Read labels. It it contains ingredients you can’t even pronounce, don’t buy it. Buy lean meats. Some people prefer to stick to vegetarian diet when detoxing. I say find what works for you so you are not craving too many things at the same time. Sugar cravings will be probably the worst, so you do not want to overwhelm yourself. That might lead to failure.
4. Stock your pantry on healthy foods only. Don’t buy what you don’t want to eat. Have enough fresh vegetables so if you’re hungry, you can just grab a carrot.
5. You might have detox reactions such as headache, fatigue, vomiting or rashes. If you do, it means you’ve exceeded your ideal detox rate. Increase water intake and decrease detoxifiers for little while, then start increasing little by little.

I always say, if you could only choose one Young Living Product, choose NingXia Red. Why? Because it is simply amazing. It has so many effects on our bodies and our health that it takes an entire booklets to explain. I will try to sum it up here with help of few pictures as well.
NingXia Red wolfberry juice incorporates the benefits of Goji berry, yuzu juice, aronia berry and therapeutic essential oils into a powerful antioxidant and nutritionally balanced drink. The NingXia and Chinese wolfberry have been used for thousands of years to support the immune system, promote longevity and naturally detox the body.
In China, the wolfberry fruit is more often referred to as “goji” or lycii fruit. They are the bright red fruit of the Lycium barbarum plants. There are over eighty species of wolfberries worldwide that vary in antioxidant and nutritional value.
Lycium barbarum L is considered to have very high antioxidant properties in China as it grows in a flood plain which is sourced from the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan Mountains are known to be one of the riches sources of minerals and organic nutrients found on earth.

All these are big reason for us to drink NingXia Red daily. It is also good for children. So remember that those 30 ml in the morning can improve your life on many many levels.

So for our purposes here, what is amazing is that NingXia Red helps balance blood sugar and supports natural detoxing process.

DIGEST & CLEANSE
Digest and Cleanse essential oil supplement was specifically designed to soothe gastrointestinal upset and support healthy digestion.
The oils promote cleansing of the digestive systems that come from stress, lifestyle and toxins. This can irritate the gastrointestinal system and cause occasional upset that interfere with the body’s natural digestive and detox functions.
We know that cleansing of the body’s systems particularly the digestive system is so important to provide the proper uptake of nutrients, support healthy immune system and more. It is natural for toxins to build up in the body, but it is unhealthy for toxins to accumulate!
Take one capsule a day with food or as needed. Soothes the bowel and stimulates stomach secretions, which will aid in digestion. Cleansing and detoxification of the large intestine or colon. Supports normal and healthy bowel movement function.
This product can be combined with Parafree or ComfortTone supplements for more effect.
Digest&Cleanse was one of the first products I ordered from Young Living as my digestion was not ideal. Next week I am starting proper cleansing and detox and Digest&Cleanse will be one of the supplements Im gonna take daily.
As with any supplements, I recommend drinking plenty of water and eating lightly.
Detoxzyme Digestive Enzymes Supplement is a home remedy for detox support as it promotes cleansing and supports healthy digestive system.
It is important to use enzymes when losing weight, or commencing any body detoxification methods. Enzymes support normal function of the digestive system, which is essential for maintaining a healthy regime.
Learn about other benefits of digestive enzymes and the types of enzymes so you can select the best enzyme for you.
Take one capsules per day or up to three capsules per day three times per day. Take in between meals to support in detoxification.

There is many other methods or procedures recommended or discussed when it comes to Detox and cleanse.
1. Colon cleanse or enema. I am ok with water enema, but I dont think i will jump on the coffee enema bandwagon. It just somehow does not sit right with me. However, if that is your thing and you tried it, feel free to share with us. I do water enema during my cleanse and I like it. Sometimes, I add little bit of salt to replenish electrolytes.
2. Detoxifying Baths – Epsom salt, herbs and Baking Powder help detoxify your body and are also pleasant and relaxing. That is one thing I really enjoy during my cleanse.
3. Go to Sauna – it opens up your pores and you sweat it out. Make a body scrub and rub your skin.
4. Drink herbal teas. I enjoy Puerrh or SenCha. They also help me go to toilet more, which is really important during detox and cleanse
5. Deworm – some people believe there are many parasites from the food we eat and the lifestyle we live that get in our bodies. I am patiently (more or less) waiting for my bottle of Young Living Parafree to be delivered. It should be here within a day or two and I will make separate post about my experience after some days of using it.
6. Go for massage. It will have great effect on your body and mind.
7. Apple Cider Vinegar – many believe in its detoxifying qualities. 1 shot of ACV in the morning is recommended, def diluted with water.
I am very sure there is much more true and tried Detox steps so please share with us!
