We’re all familiar with the difficulties of staying healthy with all the drinking, fast food and BBQs during the summer. We run the dietary gauntlet that begins Memorial Day and ends (hopefully) on Labor Day. Celebrating with family and friends and co-workers can be a lot of fun and all, but there’s no doubt the summer will take a serious toll on our bodies. Naturally, we tend to overdo it, and our systems suffer the consequences.
However, all hope is not lost. Why not detoxify as you go? Cleanse the body and reboot the system.
Whether you choose a cleanse that lasts one day or many months, there are some guidelines you would be wise to follow:
Do Your Research. There are so many cleanse options it can overwhelming -- colon cleanses, liver cleanses, master cleanses, juice cleanses, to name just a few. Identifying your cleansing goals with help you narrow the search until you find the right program for you. Once you’ve zeroed in on one or are deciding between a few options, check with your physician to find out how a particular cleanse may affect any pre-existing issues.
Commit. When you choose to go down the cleanse route, it’s important to follow the directions. Any professional cleanse has been tested and formulated to maximize results. If you deviate from the recipe for success and start improvising, you will almost certainly upset the delicate chemistry.
Have a Portable Enema Solution. Many cleanses use enemas as a tool for evacuating toxins from the body. With so much travel during the season, it’s important to find an option that works on the go. Fleet Enemas have been around a long time, but there is some data that suggests that saline is not good for the rectum. And really, who wants to hang an enema bag at a relative’s house? We created an elegant option to fix all the challenges that existing enema products present. Fresh Flush travels easy, uses bottled water, and is discreet enough to pack in any bag or suitcase. There’s no shame in our game.
Prepare for Post-Cleanse. Once you’ve completed your cleanse, it’s important to refuel the body correctly with fruits, vegetables, and clean proteins. Proper hydration, pro-biotics, and digestive enzymes can help replace key nutrients that may have been lost in the cleansing process and launch your body on the right metabolic path.
Anybody who has invested any time in taking care of themselves knows that diet and exercise are the keys to health. But we let ourselves off the hook during the summer. There’s no need to overdo it on the fitness front to compensate for overdoing it on the food front. Instead, find that elusive holiday balance with a December Detox. Give your body the gift of a Fresh Flush.
