Did you jump out of bed this morning, eager to start your day and thankful for such a refreshing night’s sleep? If so, congratulations! People of your sort are few and far between!
For most of us, mornings go something like this: We drag ourselves out of bed, crawl to the coffee pot, and think with dread about everything we have on the day’s to-do list. Sound about right?
If so, take heart! Low energy, caffeine addiction, and many other symptoms are signs it may be time for a cleanse. We’re going to share with you why that might be the case.
“A Cleanse? Like I Need Something Else to Do!”
We get it… you’re super busy already and thinking about taking on one more project is about as welcome as that 5 a.m. alarm. However, a cleanse can actually save you time in the long run, as well as make you more productive. How?
Fatigue and brain fog are often the result of toxins being stored in the body. Take away the toxins and you will likely find your energy coming back, as well your ability to concentrate.
Contrary to popular belief, cleansing does not need to take a lot of time, money, and days spent at home. A proper cleanse may involve just a few ingredients, and take relatively little effort to incorporate into your daily schedule. And, oh how much better you’ll feel when you’re done! You’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner! What other reasons are there for a cleanse?
Reasons to Cleanse
We hear the terms “detox” and “cleanse” thrown around, but how do you know if you should even consider a cleanse? Consider these statements and see how many apply to you:
1. You’re constantly craving sugar.
If you find yourself craving a sugary snack just to keep going, it means your body is not producing energy the way it should . Clean out the liver, and you’ll find your metabolism bouncing right back to where it should be.
2. You’ve had consistently low energy.
We all have days where we’re a little more tired than others. However, if you find that you are having more days with decreased energy than not, it’s a sign your body needs to clear out junk that’s dragging it down.
3. You have frequent bloating or gas.
Unhealthy bacteria that cause bloating or gas thrive in a toxic body. Clean out the toxins to restore normal digestive function and proper gut flora.
4.You’re moody, irritable, or anxious.
Maybe you’re all three! Much of our feel-good neurotransmitter, serotonin, is made in our stomach. When the body is toxic, serotonin production often decreases. Other toxins, such as ammonia created from parasites, cause anxiety and other mood problems such as depression.
5. You retain fluids.
The body may try to dilute toxins in effort to make their effects less harmful. This results in fluid retention, which is annoying when you’re trying to button your pants, and can even be painful.
6. You have migraines or headaches.
Many toxins stored in the body are irritants to the central nervous system. By not eliminating these toxins, headaches and migraines may develop.
7. You can’t make it though the day without a cup of coffee… or five.
Nowadays, coffee may be replaced by energy shots, caffeinated sodas, or energy drinks. However, the most invigorating drink you can give yourself is water. Why? Water helps the body to cleanse itself of the toxins that are making you so tired. A proper cleanse will involve drinking plenty of clean water.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, are you ready to feel better? Imagine actually waking up with enough energy to feel confident facing whatever the day throws at you! Cleansing is certainly integral in obtaining that outcome.
