Quick Cleanse

1-Day Quick Cleanse

You can give your body a quick reboot and refresh your system with a 1 day quick cleanse. This program is perfect for the weekend or any day you need a reboot. Use the herbs that help flush out toxins from your pathways of elimination. I recommend you do this monthly between the major 30-Day Detox.

These are the herbs that help your system cleanse:

Oregon Grape Root

Oregon grape root will help you stimulate your gallbladder, improves blood flow to your liver, promote healthy bowels and provides detox protection.

Red Clover Blossoms

Red clover blossoms are rich in isoflavones, a phytoestrogen with a long history of use for cleansing the blood and removing toxins.

Dandelion Root Extract

Dandelion has demonstrated top detox powers, which benefit the liver and kidneys. It has also been used for centuries to promote healthy bowels.

Burdock Root

Burdock root helps stimulate the production of bile to help you breakdown dietary fats. It also supports liver and skin detoxification.

Alfalfa Leaf 

Used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as well as Greek and Persian civilizations, this nutritious herb is known for detoxifying the urinary tract, purifying the blood and liver and promoting healthy digestion and bowel regularity.

Red Root

The roots of this hardy plant have significant astringent and expectorant qualities and are known to promote healthy lymphatic function and help the immune system protect against respiratory conditions.

Yerba Mansa Root

Native North Americans used this plant root for its antimicrobial properties to treat wounds and sore throats. Today Yerba Mansa is known for its support of kidney function by reducing uric acid buildup and to promoting gastrointestinal and skin health.

Introducing Refresh

I want to introduce you to Refresh 1-Day Quick Cleanse.  If you’re feeling sluggish, low on energy or just a little bit “off”, then I recommend the Refresh 1-Day Quick Cleanse. It’s a great way to reboot your system. If you had too much to eat or drink the night before, or you stayed up too late working or watching TV, you can rejuvenate your body in a day. Whatever the reason, this 1-day cleanse will give you the quick boost you need.

You only need to mix the bottle of herbal blend with one gallon of water first thing in the morning and drink over the next 3-5 hours. You don’t need to fast or change your lifestyle, however a juice fast during that time will only add to the benefits. Plus, there is no laxative herb in this formula, so you can go about your day with ease. The herbal ingredients go right to work quickly to nurture your cells and gently flush your body’s primary detoxification organs, leaving you feeling refreshed, rebalanced and revitalized the very next day. Refresh 1-Day Quick Cleanse is so gentle that you can safely use it monthly. It gives you a fast and easy cleansing option in between your deeper quarterly detoxes.

6 Benefits of a Juice Cleanse!

6 Benefits of a Juice Cleanse!

Get Rid of What is Holding You Back!

What is a juice cleanse? Juicing to cleanse your body is a popular method to give your body a rest and cleanse away toxins. Spring is the perfect time to detox, lose weight, and energize your body. It allows you to address your entire system with a good spring cleaning.

1. Colon Detox for Improved Gut Health

As you cleanse your digestive system with juices, you’ll get rid of colon waste that’s been building up maybe for months or even years. You can do just a juice fast or you can incorporate a complete colon cleanse. By cleaning out your digestive track , you’ll get rid of gas, bloating and mucoid plaque. As your digestion improves; you’ll absorb more nutrients from your juicing, supplements and your food because the majority of your nutrients are absorbed in the upper intestinal tract. As you improve the way you process food, you’ll gain more energy, better sleep and a happier mood. Juice detox helps to feed your friendly gut bacteria thus improving your overall digestive health.

2. Optimize Your Liver Health

The liver is our primary detox organ. It must filter everything from our blood. Fast food, junk food, sweets, fried foods, alcohol, coffee, animal fats and pesticide sprayed produce all impact the liver. It’s our hardest working organ. It can get completely overwhelmed with gunk. Overtime, it can develop stones just like the gallbladder along with a lot of congestion. It won’t be able to process hormones or produce enzymes like before. During it’s most active time around 3 am when it works the hardest, it may wake us up. A juice fast provides an excellent rest for the liver along with an abundance of antioxidants that help to bind up the toxins.

6 Juices for Tiredness & Low Adrenals

6 Juices for Tiredness & Low Adrenals

Large numbers of people suffer from fatigue that is not relieved by rest and sleep. This is one indicator that the adrenals are stressed and not functioning well. Stress plays a big part in exhausting the adrenal glands. Stress also affects the liver leading to low orotic acid production. Deficiency of orotic acid causes calcium to be high. This may also interfere with protein synthesis and inhibit replication of cells. This leads to fatigue and low blood sugar. Low adrenal function can contribute to this problem in that the adrenal glands regulate mineral levels. Mineral levels would not be abnormal if the adrenals were functioning properly. (Do not take cod liver oil if your calcium is high.)

Prebiotics, Probiotics & Gut Health

Prebiotics, Probiotics & Gut Health

Prebiotics, Probiotics & Gut Health

Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates (fiber) that induce the growth of beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) in the gut. In the gastrointestinal tract prebiotics can feed probiotics. Prebiotics are typically Inulin fibers that are not digested in your small intestine; therefore, they make it into your colon where they serve as food for the probiotics.

Probiotics benefit your hormones as well as your intestinal tract. Various studies have discovered that prebiotics can aid in weight loss and even help to reduce stress. If you lack prebotic fiber, then probiotics are not as likely to help your digestive system because the prerequisite material is absent. Probiotics help to control the harmful bacteria population of the gut. Research has shown that higher intakes of prebiotic foods can increase numerous probiotic microorganisms, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, L. reuteri, bifidobacteria, and certain strains of L. casei or the L. acidophilus-group.

Detox: Your Key to Health and Weight Loss

Detoxification means cleansing your blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin. But when these systems are compromised or overloaded with toxins and waste, impurities aren’t properly filtered and the body is under duress. 

I recently listened to Joel Osteen on SiriusXM as I was driving. He told the story of a remote village in Africa where the people suddenly started getting very sick, some even died. A team of investigators were sent out from the closest major city to determine what was making the people sick. When they tested the water, they found that it was contaminated. They looked and looked for the source of the contamination but could not find it. Finally, they sent divers up the mountain to the source of the stream to see what they could find. They discovered that a mother pig and her piglets had fallen in and drowned. They were stuck right at the opening where the water flowed out.
