Health and Wellness – Keep Your Body Clean With Fasting and Exercise!

I was cleaning out some of my back office files and I found this article I did about a year and a half ago.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Keep Your Body Clean With Fasting and Exercise

The best way to detoxify your body is to run it through a fasting juicing regimen. These involve drinking water and raw fruit or vegetable juice only, for a period of time. Proponents who utilize fasting juicing feel that this is a good source of antioxidants and vitamins. It’s considered an extreme type of fasting, since you don’t consume any solid food during the fasting period. If these don’t work for you, there are also detox plans that include some solid food.

Some people should not use fasting juicing to cleanse their systems. This includes pregnant women, and people with low blood sugar, nutritional deficiencies, impaired immune function, anemia, malnutrition, liver disease, kidney disease, eating disorders, low blood sugar and diabetes. If you have any of these conditions, check with your physician before trying any type of fasting.

Juice fasting can sometimes reduce the proteins in the blood, and change the way in which prescription drugs work in your body. Never reduce prescriptions without your doctor’s approval, and never go through a period of juice fasting without checking first with your health care professional.

Before and after a juice fasting period, you will want to keep up with your normal exercise regimen. You can use a weight training system to improve your performance, since your muscles can generate more force and are more resilient if they are well-trained. There are numerous systems you can use to do weight training. Weight training may induce hormone changes, and it can have a significant effect on the trainability of your muscles.

Olympic athletes have used training with heavy weights, and the amount of reps and sets depends on the particular area of specialty of the athlete using the program. Talk to a coach or a trainer to set up a program that works for you, because you probably won’t need heavy weight training. The weight-lifting that bodybuilders do is not the same type of training that will benefit a person who just wants a healthy amount of muscle tone and definition.

In the practice of environmental medicine, the Master Cleanse system is used to rid the body of toxic elements. In the same way exercise keeps your muscles toned, detoxification will keep your intestines and colon clean and in good working order. After a master cleanse session, you will want to increase your nutritional level, whatever works best for you.

The Master Cleanse is a simple process and it surpasses a lot of other methods of detoxification. By using lime or lemon juice with cayenne pepper and grade b or c maple syrup, you can help your body rid itself of the toxins that build up on your colon and intestines, over time. In this way, you can be regenerated and renewed, and your body can better face everything that life throws your way.

Wow!  That brings back memories from when I first started this blog.  A lot has changed since then, but I think it’s still a pretty good article.
