A lot of internal action happens while you’re cleansing. Your body kicks into its natural cleansing cycle and runs on hyper drive to flush out toxins, regenerate tissue and restore your vital organs.
Jumping in and out of a cleanse – abruptly transitioning from solid food, to liquids and then back again – can be detrimental to your body. Which is why it is highly recommended that you follow a ramp up and wind down program. Ramping up and winding down will give you far better cleanse results than an in-out-done approach.
3 days of preparing your body to cleanse. Focus should be on increasing vegetable intake, reducing animal protein and other highly allergenic foods like nuts, grains, gluten and dairy.
3 days of slowly reincorporating solid foods. Focus is on reintroducing solid foods very slowly so as not to shock the system. Your body will still be cleansing during the wind down program.
