1-Day Detox to Rest and Cleanse Your Digestive Organs


Doing a 1-day detox is a great re-set, giving your system a break, so it can turn some of that otherwise tied up energy into cleaning up. While longer detox diets may be gentler on the body and more effective, you can still benefit from a one-day cleanse. Even a 24 hour detox diet cleanse can leave you feeling lighter, stronger, more focused and fresher, as if your insides have been recharged.

When preparing for a one day detox diet, you’ll want to eat light and healthfully for the few days prior to beginning your detox program. A day to detox is a perfect opportunity for you to detox other parts of your life through journaling, napping, practicing yoga and meditating. It can be the right time to decide to make other healthy choices in your life such as changing your diet, making relationship decisions and lifestyle changes.

Green is the new Gold! Fresh green juices are one of the best ways to fill your body with incredible nutrition, easy to digest energy, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and a pleasant sensation of fullness that will help with maintaing the right weight for your own body. Greens (and especially in fresh juiced form) even help to generate feelings of comfort and being loved. Love from yourself for taking such good care of your wonderful body, but also, that feeling of being satiated and nourished creates a state of happiness and clarity in your brain (and also to your overall moods) both of which are so important . Look at your detox day as a day of looking after you. Some other things that support an effective detox are dry skin brushing, infrared sauna, rebounding and walking. Ditch the TV.

Adding fiber to “sweep” the intestines is also helpful. Fibre promotes the elimination of toxins and also binds to toxins, which helps to prevent their absorption. Dietary fibre is also metabolized by gut bacteria into short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which feed the cells lining the intestines thereby supporting cellular integrity and decreasing inflammation. For fibre I use Psyllium hulls. Psyllium is inexpensive and available from health stores.  Another very useful  colon detoxifyer  is Hydrated Bentonite, available at health stores. Hydrated Bentonite has a molecule smaller than a water molecule and capable of carrying many times more than it’s size in toxins. 

Mix 1 x Tablespoon Psyllium and 1 x Tablespoon Hydrated Bentonite with water and drink as quickly as you can, because it turns into goop very quickly. It’s tasteless but can’t say I love the texture. ugh!!

Note: If getting Psyllium and Hydrated Bentonite puts this in the too-hard basket, just leave it out. For a one day detox it is not crucial, but an aid. Better to do the detox without it than not at all. For longer than a day I recommend using it.

A detox day might look something like this:

7:00 a.m. Deep Cleansing Grapefruit Juice – 8 x grapefruits freshly juiced

8:00 a.m. 1 Tbs psyllium + 1 Tbs Hydrated Bentonite mixed with water and drink.
Follow with :Juice 1 collard green leaf, 1 kale leaf, handful spinach, 1 stalk celery, small handful parsley, 2 tart apples. Serve over ice.

Noon 1Tbs psyllium + 1 Tbs Hydrated Bentonite mixed with water and drink.
Watermelon Juice. Blend watermelon with Ice or add ice to juice

5.30 p.m. 1 Tbs psyllium + 1 Tbs Hydrated Bentonite mixed with water and drink.
OJ Banana Raspberry Smoothie, 5 x oranges, 1 banana, 1 cup raspberries or any other good looking fruit, a handful of green leafy vegetables. Blend . 

Drink as much of any of these juices and smoothies as you need. Make another one if you get too hungry. 

Drink a lot of good water, with a slice of lemon, lime or cucumber in it.

Love to hear how you get on..

In health, love and appreciation

    Most of the time you hear about colon cleansing. However, digestive cleaning is often done to other digestive organs. One additional form of flushing that seems to be beneficial is the “gull bladder flush.”
    Oftentimes the regimen for this involves the use of similar practices as does the colon cleanse procedure. It may require a certain type of diet or a certain natural cleansing product.
    There are countless ways to do this-some of which are helpful, others of which are harmful. This procedure could help correct a variety of problems, such as gull bladder inflammation, obstruction of bile flow, gull stone formation.
    Of course, there is no guarantee that any old flushing recipe or process will work. You need to choose the one that you know receives the most positive reviews.
    Furthermore, as always it is a wise move to contact a health professional (i.e. family doctor, local clinician) before proceeding.

    The human digestive system is a very important part of your body. When most people think of the digestive system, they think of their stomach and so on. However, you also have to think of your colon when you are talking about human digestion. In fact, whenever you look at a digestive system diagram, you will see that everything is linked together. When most people are having problems with their digestive system, you should note that it is normally in the colon area. Today we are going to talk about ways to keep the human system clean and the importance of it as well.

    When it comes to the human digestive system, the good news is that it is made to take care of itself. All you have to do is eat right and give it a push in the right direction. Today it is hard to eat the way that we should. That is because we are always so pressed for time. Thus, we eat a lot of fatty foods and other things that can block up your system. This is, of course, not good! When your digestive system gets backed up, it normally gets backed up in the colon. Here is where food and other waste has gotten trapped and is not allowing anything to pass through it. Since we can not eat right all the time, it is very important that from time to time that we do a colon cleanse.

    A colon cleanse is very good for the human digestive system. Pretty much what it does is clears the colon out of all the toxins that are backing it up. Thus, the digestive system can function normally once again. You should do this at least once a year. Normally all you will have to do is set aside one weekend to do a colon cleansing diet. These diets are never fun, but at least they can help you stay healthy and happy.

    The great thing about cleaning your digestive system is that you are going to feel great once you get done. You are going to be able to better absorb your food, and this will lead to higher energy levels and an overall healthier you. Now that just leaves one more thing. How do you clean out your digestive system?

    All people are different, and thus, not all remedies are going to work for everyone. That being said, you should note that it could take longer or less time for you to clean out your system. During the week that you choose to clean out your system, you need to make sure that you drink lots of water and cut out all fats. In fact, the only things that you should be eating are natural foods that are high in fiber. The best way to do this is to eat fruits and vegetables. These are the things that are best for the human system. Other doctors may have other ideas on how you can clean out your system, but all of them will agree on what we have talked about today.
