Cultures around the globe have understood and practices the cleansing process for eons of time.
On the most practical level these days – we live in a very toxic world.

The human body is subject to tens of thousands of manmade chemicals that have never before existed on Earth. We’re bombarded via air, water, and food. It’s reasonable to assert that if one was looking for nutrition practices that truly help to optimize the body and all of its functions, then well timed cleansing programs are a powerful strategy.
Think of a cleanse as intelligent nutritional defense based on the conditions we face at this point in our evolution.
But here’s the challenge: the process of cleansing not only helps to eliminate poisons that are stored in our body – mostly in fat tissue by the way – but the cleansing process has a fascinating tendency to emotionally detox us as well.
There’s compelling research coming out that quite literally points to how the molecules of emotion are anchored in our fat tissue – so it’s no surprise that when people cleanse or fast, they often become anxious, or angry, or depressed, or happy, or high, or any state you can imagine. We can even go through a range of these emotions as our fat tissue breaks down and releases stored molecules of emotion.
Oftentimes, people who cleanse suddenly have old memories come to the surface – such as past hurts, abuses or betrayals. And like the toxins in our bodies, these mental toxins are arising so that they can be fully metabolized – meaning emotionally digested and eliminated.
So if you want to have the most successful cleanse or fast, understand that you’re not just cleaning house in terms of your body. You’re cleaning emotional house as well. Body and mind exist on a continuum. They cannot possibly be pulled apart.
So please, if you do go on a cleanse, make sure to take time to be away from your normal day to day so that you can get the full benefits of a cleanse not only physically but emotionally as well.
