5 Ways to Supercharge Your Cleanse

Supercharge Your Cleanse
By Be Well Health Coach Jenny Sansouci

So, you’re on the Be Well Cleanse. Congratulations! You’re changing your diet to remove inflammatory foods,  and you’re adding in nutrient-rich detoxing shakes and supplements. Chances are you’re feeling great, but your body is detoxing, so you want to make sure to be gentle with yourself and practice extra self-care during this process!

Here are a few ways you can increase your self-care and supercharge your cleanse:

Start the day with warm lemon water

Beginning the day with warm lemon water is a fantastic aid for digestion, and supports your overall detoxification process. Warm lemon water stimulates your digestion for the day and can help flush the body of toxins. Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body, so be sure to include them in your cleanse daily.

Sweat it out in the sauna

Sweating is a great way to release toxins through your skin during the cleanse. A sauna is also relaxing for your body and mind, which is important during the cleansing process. Sweating in the sauna promotes healthy, glowing skin. Make sure to stay super hydrated with fresh water!

Restorative yoga (especially twisting)

Yoga is our favorite detoxifying exercise, and restorative yoga is perfect for cleansing because it’s soothing and supportive. Twisting encourages the flow of oxygenated blood in the body, while helping to eliminate toxins. Twisting can also help reduce any digestive discomfort. Heres an easy chair twist that can be done at any time of day.

Epsom salt bath

An epsom salt bath can help your body in eliminating toxins, and leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. The epsom salts contain magnesium, as well as other minerals and nutrients that are absorbed into your skin during the bath and can help with the detoxification process. Dissolve about 2 cups of epsom salt in your bath tub, stir with your hands to make sure it’s dissolved, and soak for about 20 mins.

Dry skin brushing

Dry skin brushing promotes cell renewal, blood flow, and helps the lymphatic system get rid of toxins. It’s also a great way to buff away dead skin cells and promote healthy, smooth skin. Get a natural brush, start at your feet, and make long sweeps towards your heart.

    this is the ticket, once your past the gathering the info from your surroundings age, you are into the pass along the knowledge stage, and this is my time, so here it is, I was in a gym using the steam room, with 5 other people, i didnt know anyone in there, and in walks this older guy and a gal. with lemons, salt and a stack of face towels. He started talking saying he was a doctor and introducing his wife to all, he asked us why were in here, and of course we said to sweat out last nights poisons, great he replied, and handed us each a lemon, precut in a ziploc, and a bag of sea salt, w a clean white hand towel. He said rub salt on your skin, all over, and your friends back, wait till your sweating good then rub the lemon on you all over, then wipe off with the towel, and repeat, so were game and do it, amazing of course we felt after, they guy said he was 60 but looked 40, his wife was 50 an looked 30, there was no way she was 50. After, we were all glowing and he showed us their drivers license to prove their ages…… trip out… been doing it ever since… get on it, there is nothing more important than feeling good right now……
