In today’s fast-paced world, stress is the norm. We put our bodies through incredible rigors, both physically and mentally. Add to that, the typical Western diet that is void of most nutrients and is high in trans-fats and countless harmful chemicals, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Toxic Overload

Your body is designed to be the perfect machine. In fact, it is one of the most intricate machines in the world. But like any sophisticated machine, if you do not take care of it, it will eventually break down.

The main detoxifying organs in your body are your kidneys, liver, lungs, skin, and intestines. Your lymphatic system also plays a huge role in removing waste and toxins, so if any of these are overwhelmed or simply not functioning properly, toxins can start to accumulate. Exhaustion, dark circles under your eyes, and excessively dry skin are key signs your body experiencing toxic overload.

The other issue of toxic overload is a weakened immune system. When your body is busy trying to rid itself of excess waste, it cannot effectively fight off viruses, infections, and other illnesses like simple colds and flu. The good news is that once you clear up the waste, your body can get back to doing its job of keeping you healthy, strong and full of energy.

Best of all, you can reset your system in as little as a weekend.

The Ultimate Weekend Detox Cleanse

Just the thought of doing a cleanse can turn some people off. They picture horrible green concoctions that taste more like grass than food. But cleanses have come a long way over the years and require much less effort than they used to.

This cleanse is well worth doing at least twice a year. While you can follow it for up to 10 days, you can also simply do it over the weekend. And when you are finished, you will feel like a new you!

Getting Started

The best thing about this cleanse is that it doesn’t have to feel like you are depriving yourself of anything. If you want to make the most of this weekend detox cleanse, however, you should also add detoxifying teas, which help to pull toxins from your body.

Your Weekend Detox Cleanse

Make sure to drink 250 ml/8.4 oz. of warm water every morning on an empty stomach throughout your cleanse. This kick-starts digestion and triggers the detoxification process.

It’s also important to keep your stress levels low, get plenty of sleep, exercise, and check the level on the processed foods in the diet, including yogurt, pickles, almond milk, and seeds.  Although they may seem innocent enough, these foods can contain food coloring, preservatives, and flavoring agents. If possible, purchase all organic produce for best results.
