The Weird And The Wonderful World of DETOX!

 

 

paradise

In an ideal world nobody would need colonic therapy…Just imagine for a minute…If we woke in the morning in a tropical paradise, gently aroused by little birds tweeting in the blue sky , got out of bed after a dream filled sleep and made our way to our private beach, feeling the soft sand beneath our toes and ate breakfast of local berries and fruit. We then spent all day helping others and smiling in the sunshine. Then, as the day  naturally turns to into the evening, you calmly return to your haven that is your home to blissfuly fall back into another wonderful night of slumber….. If only even a version of this were true then nobody would need colonic therapy because our bodies and in particular our digestive system which is so super amazing would be able to do exactly what it is designed to do.

HOWEVER, we unfortunately aren’t lucky enough to have this luxury – we are normally dragging ourselves out of bed shocked out of sleep by an alarm clock, usually when its still dark. stressed girl in morning Tweetering birds aren’t around just the pull of Twitter and social media while we haven’t even opened our eyes properly. Then we run around the house like a headless chicken with a piece of toast in one hand and your child’s homework in the other whilst trying to get everyone organised put a wash on and get ready to race out of the door for the morning commute…..

My point is this, every so often we need to calmly take a step back and give our systems a little reboot. You will be amazed at just how re-energised detoxing can make you feel.

Here at The Cleanse we recommend you try to detox at least twice a year, ideally four times a year is even better.  This can be anything from a 24 hour fast to a 14 day cleanse programme.  We have seen many clients over the years benefit from incorporating colonic hydrotherapy into there detox schedule.  Below you will find a couple of detox methods that you may find interesting. juice detox

We offer two colonic hydrotherapy sessions for just £80.00, please feel free to contact us on 07470 348 093 should you have any questions or to book!

In the meantime read on and dream of that sandy beach…..

Bentonite Claybentonite
Every cell in our body excretes waste material, which becomes toxic and poisonous to our bodies if it is allowed to build up faster than it can be eliminated or filtered out of the body. The most common symptoms of toxic buildup within the body are mental dullness, aching-stiff joints, gas and bloat, high acidity, digestive problems with the stomach and colon, acid reflux and fatigue. It is imperative to naturally detox to rid yourself of the effects of impurities and toxins. There is a lot of popular sharing of results of clay users suggesting that Calcium Bentonite Clay therapy may be an ideal detoxification treatment because it is safe and effective. Clay has many healing abilities due to its alkaline pH and high negative ionic charge, and it works on the entire organism. Take control of your body by detoxing to help regain and achieve the pinnacle of your health!

The legacy of exposure to persistent man-made chemicals combined with the denigration of the food chain has increased our susceptibility to chronic degenerative disease and cancer. Reversal can only come about by resolving these primary causes of disease. By releasing the toxic burden of the body and restoring its nutritional status, we can change our internal environment and achieve good health.

Resolving the primary causes of disease is facilitated by proper nutrition, exercise, and detoxing. Drinking plenty of water and simple sweating helps to flush your system of toxins, but clay therapy, which has been used for thousands of years by indigenous people around the world, has passed the test of time to be a superior natural detoxification method.

Clay is basically inert super charged minerals, and it gets its negative electromagnetic energy charge from the thermo dynamic heat and volcanic action that created it. When activated by water the clay awakens with a strength that radiates throughout the body, stimulating energy for the rebuilding and revitalization of latent cells, and starts a healing process. The body needs this energy to restore  balance essential to healthy maintenance. In addition, this super power has the ability to absorb harmful, toxic substances from within the body, tightly bind them within the molecule, and carry them out of the body.

By absorbing toxins before they enter the bloodstream, clay reduces the overload of toxins that the liver and kidneys normally have to filter out. By eliminating the buildup of waste lodged in the lower colon, clay allows the body to absorb more nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

The Ninja Dog     Yes you read it right!! This really could ONLY be from Japan!  We’ve seen some bizarre ideas in our day, but a “hot dog”  as a method for detoxing the body really tops the lot!. The Ninja Dog, sold at Japan’s IKEA stores, contains edible bamboo charcoal and plays into the trendy (but not so sure if its fact-based) idea that activated charcoal can clear out your system when ingested. Interestingly enough is the fact that if you do take charcoal in tablet form it WILL eliminate any smells from when you break wind, its something that we at THE CLEANSE recommend to our clients who feel embarrassed or anxious about flatulence.

This is an actual ninja hot dog from IKEA in Japan

Verdict: Come on. You’ll do far more for your health by assembling something from IKEA—a process which likely burns 483,920,483 calories, most of them born of frustration—than you will eating this glorified junk food.

Tongue scraping  this one we are definitely more familiar with, is an Ayurvedic practice that involves, well, scraping your tongue with something called, well, a tongue scraper.

The ancient Ayurvedic recommendation of tongue scraping is one that is often overlooked. There are many benefits to this daily practice as far as oral health, and overall physical, mental, and spiritual health. Since the oral cavity is one of the main gateways between your mind/body and the environment, maintaining the health of this connection is critical to general well-being.

No doubt, people who clean their tongue on a daily basis can validate the invigorating effects this practice has. In fact, by removing the coating and stimulating the tongue this helps to balance the heavy and dulling qualities of Kapha dosha in your physiology.tounge scrapper

Scraping the tongue daily removes any build-up on the tongue, which, if left untreated, can lead to bad breath and may house a significant number of bacteria. This simple practice is a direct way of removing Ama from your physiology. In Ayurveda, Ama refers to any accumulation of toxic residue in the mind-body. This can result from improper eating, poor digestion, or a reflection of an imbalance somewhere in the gastrointestinal system.

tongue-scraping-beforeafterIn addition, from an Ayurvedic perspective, by removing this coating you improve your ability to taste your food, which makes it more satisfying. By increasing your taste reception, not only do you eat less, you also eliminate the need to add more sugar, salt, or excessive spice to the food to make it more flavorful. Many of the beneficial phytonutrients and “body signals” that your food contains are first interpreted by the mind-body upon contact with receptors on the tongue. You want to improve this communication between your food and your body by removing any coating that is interfering with that connection. Also, many herbs have their beneficial effects from the initial contact with receptors on the tongue. Hence, you need a clear tongue to receive this healthy information.

Verdict: Given the evidence, we’d say this oral detox is worth trying.

How can colon therapy benefit me?

 

 

 

 

gentle

Colon hydrotherapy is an amazing treatment that gives you a kick start in improving your diet, lifestyle and exercise regime.

Individuals suffering from constipation and bloating can benefit greatly from  colon hydrotherapy.  Likewise, if you suffer from toxicity of the bowels your symptoms can be greatly relieved by cleansing the colon.

It’s true to say,  a session of colonic hydrotherapy  literally acts like a “workout” for your colon. It can restore and encourage peristalsis. ( the name of the muscle movement of the colon ) When peristalsis is reactivated, the colon will tone up, thereby helping to provide more normal elimination functions.

healthy imsgr of colonic juiceFor any clients wishing to embark on a detox programme, colon hydrotherapy and an eating plan are a great combination for any detox. Whatever the detox programme you choose and whatever the reason, weight loss or lack of energy etc, colon hydrotherapy can assist in clearing toxins out of the body as quickly as possible.

Colon hydrotherapy is a fantastic option when dealing with a high stress lifestyle which requires the individual to perform consistently at his/her peak. Stress often manifests in some conditions, so many high stress individuals may be stressedconstipated or bloated as a result.

A combination of colon hydrotherapy, diet overhaul and appropriate exercise programme, can assist in improving metabolism and improve energy levels and mental clarity, and reduce stress levels associated with the lifestyle.

Many health problems can be helped with colon hydrotherapy.

As well as bloating and digestive disorders, a compacted, sluggish colon can also cause many other common problems.

For example, a toxic colon can contribute towards:

Constipation         Diarrhoea               Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Bloated stomach       Wind              Indigestion        Headaches

Bad breath              Food cravings           Weight problems   Poor sleeping patterns

Bladder infection       Prostate problems       Menstrual problems

Puffy or dry eyes           Skin and nail problems      Irritability

Anxiety and depression

All of the above can be greatly reduced by colonic hydrotherapy.

Detox shake/ smoothie

 

wtermelon

Here at The Cleanse many of our clients visit for a session when they are either beginning or finishing a detox.  This can be anything from a specific liver cleanse or a vegetable smoothie cleanse or even the Madal Bal Master Cleanse which Beyonce famously lost so much weight on. No matter which detox suits you, you really will benefit from a session or two of colonic hydrotherapy.

lemon in waterSessions are relaxing and effective.

We have a special offer running of two sessions for just £80.00 – Saving £40.00 !!!!

We have suggested a few easy to follow detox smoothies to start you off on your journey to feeling more energised and loosing weight. Enjoy!!!!

Detox smoothies are a delicious way to detox, and one of the best detox drinks to add to your daily routine. To detox the body you need to feed it foods that help it purge itself, while at the same time provide it with the vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best.

berries-1000x5761. All-About-the-Berries Smoothie

Berries are your friend when it comes to detoxing because of all the antioxidants and fiber they contain. They’re just the thing your body needs to replenish itself and to help purge toxins from its various systems. Blueberries are packed with them, and raspberries and blackberries also have a lot, so we’ll use all three here to make sure it’s a detox winner.

What You Need

1 1/2 cups Berry Mix (Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries)
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Purified Water
1/8 cup rolled oats

Instructions: Blend everything together until you reach a smoothie consistency. The beauty of berries is their easy prep. Fresh berries need a rinse before going in, while frozen you just pop right in. When detoxing organic produce is always recommended.

2. Kale-It-Up Smoothie

Kale is the new spinach, and as such you should make sure you’re eating some on a semi-regular basis. A smoothie makes a great vehicle for upping your kale intake, since the curly kind of kale can be a bit much to munch on.

What You Needeasy-kale-recipes-400x400

1 handful Kale
1/2 apple
1 cup Coconut Water

Instructions: If you use curly kale make sure you cut off the hard and stringy ribs that run down the middle of the leaf. Most blenders will have a tough time with these, and even if you use a professional grade blender it might still leave bits behind. We recommend baby kale, since you can just grab it and toss it in.

You’ve probably heard of kale by now and seen it in stores, as it’s benefited from its fare share of popularity. But this is one trend that you can join in and keep up because kale is the real deal.

 

ginger3. Ginger Spice Smoothie

Ginger root is great to keep around if you’re trying to detox, as we’ll see below. As far as flavor goes, ginger definitely wakes up the taste buds and provides a kick that can be quite refreshing. Combining it with cinnamon gives it additional anti-inflammatory benefits, and really kicks up the spiciness of this smoothie. Not hot spiciness like a pepper, but a spice that will be felt nonetheless.

What You Need

1 nub Ginger Root
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 handful Spinach
1 cup Purified Water

Instructions: The more you mince the ginger before adding it in, the less bits you’ll have to crunch on once it’s all blended up.

Ginger has a cleansing effect on the digestive system, helping to ease bloating and gas, and breaking up congestion throughout the body. It’s been used throughout the ages as a treatment for different disorders, and makes a great addition to your detoxing efforts.

4. Cocoa Bliss Smoothie

You can use chocolate as part of your detox routine, as long as it’s the right kind. This smoothie tastes like chocolate covered strawberries, sweet and chocolatey with digestive enzymes from the honey, no refined sugar, and antioxidants from the chocolate and strawberries.

What You Need

1 tbsp Dark Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1/2 cup Strawberries
1 cup Ice (if during warmer months)

Instructions: Blend everything together until frothy and smooth.

Dark Cocoa Powder

Dark cocoa is going to contain antioxidants that regular cocoa doesn’t have. It’s also going to be sugar free if you go with a high quality option. The caffeine content will vary by manufacturer, but it is a small enough amount to only affect those very sensitive to caffeine.

 

Celebrity Colonic Followers…… part one…..

 

Many people look to celebrities to see what trends are emerging. Style, fashion, and even health decisions are based on what famous folk are up to. It has become increasingly trendy to partake in a colon cleanse and many “A” list celebrities have been open about the type of cleanse they do and the results achieved.
Sometimes, or previously, a hush-hush topic, celebrities are publicly endorsing the benefits of colon cleansing. Many have attested that the practice has helped them remove harmful toxins from their body. In turn, this has helped many have higher energy, improved well being, and less bloating.

1. Oprah Winfrey
For Oprah, colon cleansing was an accompaniment to her weight loss program. She has publicly announced having seen wonderful results, and has endorsed the  cleansing process.

oprah

2. Madonna

Madonna has claimed that, in conjunction with good exercise and diet, colon cleansing has helped keep her in shape. The preferred means of cleansing for her, and many celebrities, has been colon hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic. This method, similar to an enema, utilizes a tube inserted into the rectum to deliver water to flush toxins and waste out of the body.

Here at THE CLEANSE we have lots of happy clients who are made to feel like celebrities!

Well good news!! You don’t need to be a Hollywood a-lister !!!

And you dont have to be part of the super rich either as our extended offer of 2 colonics for just £80.00 mean that you will be saving a massive £40!!! 

It really is the moment to reclaim your body and your health.

But where to begin when left with the bloated and weighty repercussions of intense end-of-the year gluttony? It’s not easy to detox when you’re caught in crave-the-entire-bread-basket before-your-starter-has-even-arrived cycle. Not to mention that you’re lethargic from not enough sleep and too low on energy to hit the gym.

Rather, you’re filled with endless excuses as to why tomorrow will be a better day to get back into the routine of healthy living.

This Isn’t Just Laying Off The Booze For a Few Weeks

Just like the spring and winter cleaning we do for our home, it’s great to do the same with your body and detox at least twice a year as the seasons change.

natural energiserDetoxing can be a test of discipline and dedication. Regular detoxers swear it boosts energy, increases mental clarity and has skin glowing. For first time detoxers the best results come to those who are able to spend a few days out of your normal schedule and really concentrate on the task in a gentle manner.  Forgoing meats, dairy, grains, fish and fiber and subsisting only on fresh, organic fruits and vegetable juices is easier to maintain when far away from  others. Its all about preparation and forward thinking, making the experience as easy as possible.

A three to five day detox can really welcome the return of energy, restful sleep and overall good feeling. A two-week detox is obvioulsy tougher but brings on significant yet natural weight loss. Most people see 5-7 lbs melt off in a week and as much as 20 lbs in two weeks. After the initial three days of the more challenging 2 week option, detoxers find that hunger pangs, cravings and nausea from low blood sugar disappear. Colonic hydrotherapy in conjunction with your detox will make sure you see the optimum results.

At this time of year we often rush around , stressed and eating whatever is to hand as we are so busy. Also, in the coming weeks we seem to continuously be offered many foods we wouldn’t eat all year – Quality Street on tap and lots of mince pies!!!!

With this in mind, THE CLEANSE offers some healthy food swaps that will help you make the right choices to treat yourself this Christmas without loading up on fattening and high-calorie dishes that result in unwanted weight gain.

 

white-wine-spritzer-recipe-lemonChristmas cheer comes with binge drinking and all the empty calories of alcohol. Try to choose low-calorie beverages instead.
If you must drink, then instead of having a glass of white wine, mix half wine and half carbonated water to save over 50 calories.

jumbo-shrimpEat shrimp instead of fried appetizers
There’s no need to give up on appetisers while you’re mingling at a party. Save over 100 calories by choosing three jumbo shrimp with some sauce instead of fried snacks. Shrimp also has a low saturated fat content.

Make a healthier choice by choosing dark chocolateDon’t be tempted by gourmet chocolate and candy, and satisfy your sweet tooth with some dark chocolate instead. It has a lower calorie and fat content. Dark chocolate also contains flavonoids that have heart-healthy benefits.

Munch on popcorn
If you’re hosting a party and want to choose a light snack for your guests to munch on, try popcorn instead of salted mixed nuts. This will help save over 500 calories and 25 grams of carbohydrates per cup!

Keep your Christmas cocoa drink simple
Instead of selecting a speciality drink that contains whipped cream, sugar or ice-cream in a coffee shop, opt for a hot chocolate with fat-free milk. You’ll save about 150-200 calories by making this simple switch.

Lighten up the potatoes
Baked potatoes are a good source of Vitamin C and fibre, but the added cheese, cream, and butter cancels out its health benefits. One medium stuffed potato contains about 300 calories and 9 grams of saturated fat.
Use low-fat dairy products or add low-calorie vegetables like onions and spinach to create a lighter version of stuffed potatoes. Roasted sweet potatoes are also a great alternative and contain only half of the calories.

turkeySkip red meat, eat white turkey meat
This ones a no brainer for this time of year!!!Turkey is a good source of protein. A turkey breast packs more flavour than chicken, and is also relatively lower in fat. A serving of turkey breast without the skin is only about 160 calories, with most pieces containing only 1 to 4 grams of fat.

Choose salsa and yoghurt dips over full-fat dipssalsa
Appetisers need dips, but you will consume too many calories from dips made with full-fat cream or cheese. Substitute full-fat cream with low-fat or non-fat yogurt. Choose fresh salsa over fattening dips. You will save 125 calories per 1/2 cup.

Make a healthier choice by choosing dark chocolate
Don’t be tempted by gourmet chocolate and candy, and satisfy your sweet tooth with some dark chocolate instead. It has a lower calorie and fat content. Dark chocolate also contains flavonoids that have heart-healthy benefits.

Cheesecake is always a crowd favourite during the holidays. The problem is that one large slice of cheesecake has about 300-500 calories and 20-30 grams of fat. This is without accounting for the calories from assorted flavours and toppings. A regular slice of cheesecake is loaded with cream cheese, sour cream, whole milk, sugar, and heavy whipping cream.

cheescake Check out lighter versions of cheesecake recipes and garnish it with fresh fruits instead.

Most of all though, Christmas is a time for family, friends and fun, so make sure you are kind to yourself and ENJOY!

fad diets

 

 

As the silly season approaches, here at THE CLEANSE we ask our self  ” Why is it that common sense disappears when a celebrity swears by the latest fad?

This is in honor of our silly compulsions and get-skinny-quick desires.

zoe-kravitz
Zoe Kravitz

1. Clay Cleanse

We’ve heard of celebrities doing ridiculous diets that include maple syrup, purple foods and baby food – but now there’s one that involves drinking clay. Actual clay made from volcanic ash – yikes. Both Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley have admitted using the clay cleanse, with Zoe using it to lose weight for a film role that saw her portraying an anorexic and bulimic – she reportedly lost 20lbs. She told Us Weekly: ‘I ended up drinking clay because it cleans out your body and fills you up. I was eating like a Mason jar of pureed vegetables a day and running.’

shailiene-woodley
Shiliene Woodley

Does clay have cleansing abilities that help remove toxins? Yes. But usually clay is used as a face mask to remove skin impurities, or used in a culinary context to eliminate toxicants in food sources.

This wacky trend was brought to the spotlight by actress Shailene Woodley, who described clay as “one of the best things you can put into your body,”. But other than that hype, there is no substantial evidence that clays remove toxins, or that they should be consumed as a purifying measure. There are far better ways to get minerals, and besides, our liver and kidneys do a pretty good job detoxifying our bodies without mud. Let them do their job.

The science behind the clay cleanse is that the substance has binding properties, which cleanse your digestive track by sticking all the rubbish together and removing it when you poo.clay
Bentonite clay comes in powder form and is mixed with water. Dieters will lose weight because it helps keep them fuller for longer, as well as sweeping out the toxins and heavy metals from the body.
Sarah Brewer, doctor and author of The Total Detox Plan, says ‘[It] isn’t something she would recommend. Clay is very binding, so it could cause constipation and long-term it could even remove useful things from the body like iron.’
And it gets worse: the Food Standards Agency has warned that some products bought from online retailers have been found to contain arsenic, exposure to which could lead to ‘an increased risk of lung, skin and bladder cancer.’

Looks like you should just stick to your good old healthy eating plan instead…

2. Cricket Protein250px-criquet-1l

This one just screams…Im  A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!!! Okay, this may not be damaging to your health, but it’s certainly strange and may take some getting used to before they become mainstream. Crickets have already found their way into plenty of popular foods: protein bars, dried as a snack (similar to dried fruit), flour, chips, and cookies.

That’s right, protein derived from creepy, crawly, and even winged creatures is generating buzz among the health obsessed as the new go-to food for fueling your workouts and staying fit and lean.

“When it comes to bugs, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization has identified almost 2,000 types of edible insect species,” says Vandana Sheth, RDN, CDE, and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In fact, in 2013 the UN released a report arguing that insects are a viable — and highly nutritious food source, rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats.

Beyond that, eating insects might be good for the environment, offering an easy, cheap way to feed people worldwide as the planet’s population steadily climbs towards the nine billion mark.

3. The Blood-Type Diet

Researchers from the University of Toronto discovered the theory behind the blood-type diet, which claims an individual’s nutritional needs depends on their blood type, is unfounded and invalid.

martine-mcuthon
The amazing Martine!

Popularized by the popular book Eat Right For Your Type, the theory maintained that one’s blood type can improve health and lower the risk of chronic illnesses like cardiovascular disease. These researchers shut the notion down, saying someone’s ability to respond favorably to a diet depends on his or her ability to stay on the diet, not on their type of blood.

In Eat Right For Your Type Dr D’Admao matches the blood type to dietary recommendations, summarised here.

•The O diet Eat meat (high protein, low carbohydrate). Cut out wheat and most other grains. Engage in vigorous aerobic exercise. Your risk factors for ulcers and inflammatory diseases such as arthritis increase if you eat incorrectly for your type.

•The A diet You should be largely vegetarian (eating a high carbohydrate, low fat diet). Engage in gentle exercise such as yoga or golf and meditate to deal with stress. Your risk factors for cancer and heart disease increase if you eat incorrectly, according to Dr D’Admao.

•The B diet You should have the most varied diet of all the blood types, one including meat; yours is the only blood type that does well with dairy products. Engage in exercise such as moderate swimming or walking. Your risk for slow-growing viruses that attack the nervous system increases if you eat incorrectly for your type.

•The AB diet You have most of the benefits and intolerances of types A and B, so most foods which are recommended for either type A or B will also work for you. Engage in calming exercises and relaxation techniques. You have the friendliest immune system.

In the UK 46 per cent of people have O type blood, 42 per cent A, nine per cent B and three per cent A/B.

Cheryl Cole, Martine McCutcheon, Mirander Kerr and our very own Sir Cliff Richard have all at one time or another been on the blood type diet.

4. Butter Coffeebutter-coffee

Now this one is very controversial in my house as my husband, Jamie, swears by them!!! Bulletproof Coffee, recently back int he news, is a caffeinated concoction. Not your typical cup of coffee, it’s brewed with two-thirds of a stick of grass-fed butter. Let’s be clear; grass-fed butter is still butter, whether it comes from cows, sheep, goats, or yaks, it’s still adding 100 to 200 calories to your coffee.

The beverage is said to boost energy, shrink your waistline, and promote brain function, however a report in the Daily Mail says “any extra energy experienced by drinkers is merely a placebo effect,”.

Butter is high in saturated fat, which raises cholesterol and increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. But those who follow the Paleo diet will likely be fans of the coffee since it falls within their hat-fat regimen.

 

5. Charcoal Cleanse

Hospitals use a special charcoal cocktail to flush poison and alcohol out of patients’ systems. In 2014, normal people decided the black mess at the bottom of their grill would work great as a cleansing agent.

Activated charcoal is special, The DailyBurn reports, because of its efficacy in large surface areas. Carbon is treated with an oxidizing agent, which turns it to a fine dust with millions of pores and an immediate surface area that reduces the body’s absorption of poison (drugs and alcohol) by 47 percent. Everything—charcoal doesn’t discriminate, it will absorb everything—in your gut will stick to the charcoal and move through your body to be expelled in your next bowel movement.

charcoalThis black, sandy substance may have a proven track record in urgent care settings, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe to self-administer. If you decide to use it anyway,  take it under the guidance of a doctor so they can track your liver and enzyme levels, to ensure your body is not becoming depleted of essential nutrients.

It’s also important to note that the powder, which will turn your stools black when ingested, can mask upper GI bleeding that may be a side effect of serious digestive distress.

The biggest thing to keep in mind is to figure out the cause of your digestive problem before running to take activated charcoal. There might be something else going on in your system that is causing your symptoms.
