5 Step Total Body Cleanse to Get Healthy, Stay Sharp and Lose Weight

A total body cleanse is more than drinking juice, it is a way to help your body's natural abilities using various techniques to accomplish your personal goals.  Many people do this to lose weight, some try to increase energy or strength while others are going for mental sharpness.  While not claiming a total body cleanse is a cure-all to achieve all of these benefits, you will get out of it what you put into it.

No matter what your goal, a total body cleanse involves three different areas of work that will support your body; nutritional supplements, diet and bodywork.  Herbal supplements used in a colon cleanse are important because they add nutrition, give strength to your cleansing organs and initiate the break down of mucosal plaque

Diet is important to your total body cleanse. Junk food and poor food choices can make your cleansing supplements obsolete. It is important to ease the burden of digestion so the body can cleanse itself. The body can cleanse or digest, but it cannot do both at the same time. Therefore, a healthy cleansing diet is important to help your total body cleanse.

Body work can range from a simple foot bath to Endermologie to get rid of fat (and the toxins trapped in the fat cells!).  Your personalized and individual plan will determine which type of bodywork and food plan to use to best reach your goals.  Here are five important techniques to ensure your cleanse includes your total body so that you fully benefit from your efforts.

Endermologie -While massage therapy is an excellent stress reliever, Endermologie is approved by the FDA for the treatment of cellulite, which is made up of trapped fluids and fat cells enlarged with stored toxins. As you practice clean eating during a total body cleanse, this treatment will help move these toxins out of the fatty tissue and into your lymphatic system for removal.  This helps turn your cleanse into a healthy weight loss program, as long as you eat accordingly.

Colon Cleanse - At the core of any cleanse is a focus on digestion and maintenance of our alimentary tract.  To accomplish this, a detox diet along with the right supplements designed for body cleansing can help jump start your body's natural cleansing abilites.  This is important for total body health, because as we get older, or if we lack energy or gain weight, our bodies need extra nutritional help.   We can do this by laying off of junk foods and highly processed foods for a while and put a focus on eating healthy as we take the burden off of digestion.

Colon Hydrotherapy- This is a technique is used by many along with a body cleanse in order to see results quicker.  The practice uses water to stimulate the colon and intestinal tract to work more fully, and keep up as your body works harder to remove old waste.  Some people find this practice helps them have more success with their body cleanse while others achieve weight loss after time.  Colon hydrotherapy (or a colonic) can be performed by a professional, but many people have great success at home, too, using a colema board

Dry Skin Brushing - This is a practice that is used by many to help cleanse and detoxify the skin.  Many claim it stimulates the lymphatic system to move waste out quicker, because the circulatory system has no pumping action of its own therefore relies on manual help.  The results?  Many find that by using the exfoliating technique, their skin glows and looks healthier.  This can be done at home in less than 3 minutes a day, using a Dry Skin Brush.

Essential Oils - The benefits of essential oils range from uplifted moods to protecting the immune system.   The oils are extracted from various plants including flowers, nuts, stems and leaves and are said to have a number of benefits, depending on the plant the oil is extracted from. These may be used with a massage, in a bath, a vaporizing to fill the room with scent or by applying them to your skin.   Many spas around the world may use then in a body wrap to help reduce puffiness or help your body detox.   These have become so popular that Body Wrap kits are sold and you can make your own Essential Oil Wrap by adding your preferred oils to clay or alone by applying them first, then wrapping yourself.
