This is still one of my favorite catchy tunes. It’s a great song by Justin Timberlake, but unfortunately “Bring sexy back” isn’t as easy as belting out some lyrics to your steering wheel. If it was as easy as singing that song, I don’t think two out of every three people in America today would struggle with obesity or we would see cleanse after cleanse promoting their many health benefits! I also wouldn’t have numerous patients tell me… “But Doc, I eat clean, exercise three times a week and I can’t lose a pound!”
Unfortunately, losing weight long-term is way more complicated than eating clean and exercising. Does it help? Of course! Yet, how is it possible that you are exercising and eating right, but STILL can’t lose that stubborn belly fat? One word: chemistry.
That’s why one of the best ways to jump-start your body’s chemistry and help it get back on track is a cleanse. Here are five ways a cleanse helps your body reset, refresh, and recharge so you can reach your health goals.
#1: A Cleanse is a Reboot That Helps Reset and Remove “Malware”
There are some beneficial cleanses being advertised everywhere on the internet, but remember that not everything on the internet is true, and not every drug is safe. There is a system to help the body get back on track and it must be done in the correct order.
#2: A Cleanse Reduces Inflammation in the Gut.
We prefer protein shakes in this step. Shakes are good because your body doesn’t have to work hard to digest the food and grab as many nutrients as possible, but they also help you eliminate any food trigger that could be causing inflammtion.
#3: A Cleanse Heals the Gut Lining.
So many people present with Leaky Gut Syndrome! If you start detoxing and your gut is leaking like an old sink in an 1890 farmhouse, then you are just recycling the garbage back into the system. Which only makes you SICKER!
#4: A Cleanse Destroys What Doesn’t Belong, But Keeps Your Allies.
Your digestive system is the perfect place for parasites, yeast, bacteria, or viruses to set up camp. It’s warm, moist, and full of food. But having these invaders only bogs down your immune system and hampers your body’s ability to create a healthy microbiome of good bacteria.
#5: A Cleanse is an Intercellular Detox.
Many cleanses can help around the cell, but very few work on what is *in* the cell. It’s like having a beautiful Apple Pie but when you cut into it, it’s full of bolts. Make the cell detox. Remove all the toxins that are leeching off the cell.
The Ultimate Body Cleanse from Aceva – a program that has been tested, tried, and recommended by AlignLife doctors – will do just that: help detoxify you, lower inflammation, give you proper nutrients, and show you the correct way to eat. In fact, it has been a huge success for everyone involved and I invite you to “Bring YOUR sexy” back this year.
