This is the best way to triple your energy, shift unwanted weight, clear your skin and boost your immune system. We believe that an alkaline cleanse and lifestyle is one of the most efficient and effective way to detox your body and mind.
An alkaline detox involves consuming raw, fresh, alkaline foods, juices and smoothies. The aim of an alkaline detox is to flood the body with an abundance of easily absorbed and assimilated alkalising nutrients so that the body can detoxify, cleanse and rebuild itself.
Essential fatty acids (omega 3,6 and 9) are absolutely vital at all times in life, but this is especially true during a cleanse. Do get a good omega oil supplement as it is hard to consume the right amount through diet alone.
Foods to avoid while cleansing and for a healthy lifestyle:
Sugar, Saturated fats, trans fat, chocolate, soda drinks, gluten (pasta, bread, noodles etc) and grains, high sugar fruits (except lemons, limes, avocados, grapefruits, tomatoes), dairy, meat, refined food, eggs, mushrooms and corn.
This might sound like you are restricting yourself, but in reality the opposite is true. You can consume a LOT of nutrients, FEWER calories and a LOT of food! You don't go hungry with this diet. If you feel hungry, you can have some more!
You also need to consume a lot of water during the cleanse. Good quality, clean, pure water. Best is herbal teas, ginger tea as well as a big glass of warm lemon water every morning right when you get up.
The body includes a number of organ systems that are adept at neutralising and eliminating excess acid, but there is a limit to how much acid even a healthy body can cope with effectively. The alkaline diet greatly reduces this acid load, helping to reduce the strain on the body's acid-detoxification systems.
