How often should I detox?
Article 2 of 4: Detoxing
This is a really good question because if you detox for too long or too often you can loss valuable nutrients along with the toxins and leave your body depleted.
For this reason I wouldn’t recommend doing a ‘full on’ cleanse were you restrict your diet for more than 2 to 4 times a year.
There are also times in your life where detoxing is either not beneficial or should be done under medical guidance. Examples of this is when you are pregnant or breastfeeding and need to have enough nutrition to support another little person. Or if you’re recovering from an illness and need to build your body up. Diabetics also need to be careful of detoxing because they require a steady supply of energy. If you are ill, it is advisable to seek medical supervision for any detoxification process.
But Bestow Be Cleansed is a little different from many detox programmes in that is simply supports your body’s normal cleansing process without over stimulating it. This is especially true if you use it in conjunction with a healthy, but not restricted diet.
It works very gently in four ways:
- Boosting the amount of fibre in your diet, both soluble (draws toxins out into digestive tract) and insoluble (encourages them to be eliminated).
- Providing foods that soothe, heal and keep the gut lining healthy.
- Supplying many of the vitamins and minerals that our hungry livers require to carry out the process of detoxification.
- Lastly, by providing pre-biotic foods that encourage a healthy gut flora.
Bestow Be Cleansed works by supporting the natural process of detoxification in your body, it is not depleting at all. For this reason, I use it everyday, cooked into my porridge. Once my porridge is cool enough to eat, I add my Bestow Beauty Oil that not only nourishes my body and skin, but also supports the detoxification process.
If you want to do a more ‘full on’ detox, follow the “Fully Cleansed’ programme in your Bestow Be Cleansed information booklet that comes with every pot.
