Have you lost your energy and your spunk that you used to rely on to get you going? Instead, do you often feel down and out like you just don’t feel like doing anything? Well there are two likely culprits. You could be mildly (or even more) depressed or down and out because you are not happy with how your life is going or where you are at in your life right now. This could even be causing you to get less exercise which contributes to the “not feeling like doing anything” issue.
The second likely cause is that your physical body is getting clogged and filled with toxins accumulated over the years. This can cause the body’s organs to have to overwork trying to get the intended vitamins and nutrients from the food you eat or in trying to filter the toxins. The solution is simple, yet not widely known. ‘Body detoxifications’ or ‘colon cleansings’ are ways to cleanse you body and system and to renew yourself and your body. This can make you feel better and can help get you out of the “funk” you might be feeling. Make a conscious decision to improve the health of your body and your mind. Take a little time to focus on “you.” Focusing on renewing your body and your spirit are ways to get back that energetic and happy feeling again!
There are many ways you can detoxify and cleanse the body. You can begin the process by increasing your normal intake of healthful liquids – like water, fruit juice and tea combined with reducing and limiting your intake of certain foods that are not as healthy for you. Oh, and make sure it is filtered and pure water you drink or that you use to make your tea or mix with juice. Our bodies are made up of over 70% water – so simple logic tells you how important it is to our health and wellness. Just the drinking of more water on a regular basis will help your body cleanse harmful toxins from your body more regularly. How much should you drink? The answer really depends on each person. A person’s size and weight is important in determining the amount of water to be consumed. A heavier person should definitely drink proportionately more water.
Fruit juices and tea can also be helpful – juice provides your body with needed vitamins and nutrients – and both help in cleansing your system. There are many varieties of teas readily available in the supermarket and tea is very rich in antioxidants which can help your body eliminate free radicals that may cause cancer in the body. For teas lovers, a nice cup or glass of tea is a form of relaxation and a way of detoxifying your body all rolled into one.
Another critical part of the best body detoxification processes is a good colon cleansing. Once the colon has been cleansed properly, the body will begin to absorb more easily the vitamins and minerals from the food you eat. It is also important during your body detoxification and colon cleansing to avoid consuming processed foods with lots of manufactured additives and preservatives. Eating as much nutrient rich, fiber filled food as possible and eliminating or reducing the consumption of foods that are made with preservatives or are high in fat and sugar is important in the cleansing process. You should always eat food in as close to its natural form as possible. It will do wonders for the body and allow your system to better absorb and use the nutrients in the food – and the food will contain more of their original natural vitamins and minerals when they are closer to their natural form.
To further boost your detoxification and rejuvenation experience, eat more brown rice. Brown rice contains a lot of B vitamins. Did you know that these vitamins are known to be stress reducers? Brown rice is also very rich in fiber which is very beneficial to the digestive system and can also help you eat less of other foods by making you feel full from the fiber.
Not only should you watch what you are eating but you should also watch what you are thinking, saying and focusing your attention on. Your mind and your body are all part of the same system. Changing your thoughts will change how you feel. Replace any negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Think about what you do want, not what you don’t want. Other ideas: Go on a weekend getaway or trip, reward yourself with a trip to a spa – even a day spa, or enjoy getting a massage which will help relax your mind along with your muscles. Anything you like to do to pamper yourself. Clear your mind of the clutter of thinking of things that might be bothering or troubling to you. This will help reduce stress as well as help you relax. Anything you do to help your spirit will in turn help your body.
