Why You Should Detox Your Body

With the cooler weather comes the urge to get out the fall/winter clothes. It is also common to cleanse your body when the weather changes. Many people do a detoxification of their body in the spring and then again in the fall. This keeps the body young, vibrant, healthy, and strong.

Regular liver and gall bladder cleanses eliminate the build up of stones and old bile that can cause stones. Many people who do regular cleansing report that they do not get sick as often as they did before cleansing. Though toxins are generally eliminated from your body through your liver, over a period of many years, small accumulations can build up into problems causing headaches, tiredness, lack of energy, and inflammation in the organs.

“Gluten” is the general term for a mixture of tiny protein fragments found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley, spelt, faro, and kamut.

Save Your Money and Save Your Health!

How fresh is the produce in your supermarket?  When you consider that the produce has to be harvested by the farmer, then travel to a middle man, then possibly to another middle man, then to a refrigerated supermarket warehouse, then  finally to your grocery store, you realize that the expensive produce that you spent good money for is probably at least 1-2 weeks old.  Compare this to walking out into your garden and harvesting a sweet ripe tomato or sugar snap peas that are mouth wateringly sweet and bursting with nutrition.
