Water and Cleanses

Internal Cleansing has been Practiced by Various Cultures

Internal cleansing has been used by various cultures and has been practiced around the world for centuries. Though there have been beneficial results from cleansing reported, very little research has been done about it. Whatever cleanse is used, water plays a huge role in maintaining equilibrium in the body for optimum health.

One of the most popular ways to rid the body of toxins in a gentle manner is to mix water with certain citrus fruits and vegetables like lemons, limes, and grapefruits. Cucumbers mixed with water are a great diuretic which helps to avoid water retention. Lemons and limes have great cleansing effects as they help to flush toxins out of the digestive track whereas grapefruits assist in burning fat. It’s best to use spring water when creating these drinks and allow them to sit in the fridge for a few hours before drinking them so that they’ll be loaded with flavor.

DIY & Crafts
Processed vitamin water is popular, but it’s better and fresher if you make it yourself with natural spring water. Fruit and vegetable water is simple and easy to make if you make it yourself. Check out some of the recipes here at DIY & Crafts.

Although drinking adequate water is one way to detox the body and flush it of toxins on a daily basis, adding a few simple ingredients can add more detoxifying qualities for gentle cleansing without being on a cleansing program. It’s something that you can do every day and you can try different recipes which have various effects on the body.

Fruit, Vegetable, and Herb Combination Detox Waters
In this article from the bembu website15 detox water recipes mixed with fruit, vegetables, and herbs are suggested. What’s appealing about mixing water with fruit, vegetables, and herbs in different combinations, is that you can try various recipes and change them up in order to get the benefits. Some of the natural flavored drinks you can make listed on the bembu website are: Warm Lemon Water; Watermelon Detox Water; Slim Down Detox Water; Apple Spice Detox Water; Water (aka Sassy Water); Strawberry Kiwi Detox Water; Frozen Fruit Infused Hydrating Water; Citrus Detox Water; Chia Detox Water; Apple Cinnamon Detox Water; Jillian Michaels Detox Water; Strawberry Detox Water; Weight Loss Detox Water (Fat Flush Water); Apple Cider vinegar Detox Water; and the Lemon and Cayenne Pepper Detox.

The Master Cleanse
One of the most popular cleanses is The Master Cleanse made with lemon, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup. Only a combination of organic lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper is used and the eating of regular food ceases. It’s supposed to put the body into detox mode and give the digestive system a break. Check the official website about The Master Cleanse and what it involves in the way of preparation and effects. Another place to find out about this cleanse is at The Master Cleanse.org website where it discusses whenever doing this cleanse it’s important to ease in and out of it. The ease-out process is the same as ease-in but in reverse. It’s important to ease food back into your daily regime to avoid any undesirable effects.


Yerba Prima
One company that takes a balanced approach to
cleansing is Yerba Prima which introduced the Internal Cleansing Program years ago. The key products in the Program were Kalenite Cleansing Herbs formula and Psyllium Husks Powder, a fiber that is excellent for absorbing toxins and sweeping waste out of the colon. This program does not require the need for fasting, enemas, and other extreme measures. Since Yerba Prima is an industry leader in Internal Cleansing, they commissioned Dr. Jeffrey Bland to design and perform the first independent study on Internal Cleansing.

The results of this independent study were fascinating. Following 11 weeks using the Internal Cleansing Program, the participants had a decrease in harmful bacteria in the colon, thereby improving the colon environment. The undigested protein and putrefaction by-products in the gut were reduced which alleviated the toxic load in the body. The benefit of improved water-soluble vitamin absorption showed that the Internal Cleansing Program enhanced the digestive process by removing toxins and improving colon health. Participants in the study reported more energy, fewer headaches, and improved well-being.

WebMD:  Medical Perspective on Cleansing WebMD
From a medical perspective, an article on the WebMD website asks Natural Colon Cleansing: Is It Necessary? In this article, important questions are asked and the ideology of cleansing is discussed. Some common sense advice is given at the end: “What you eat -- not what you flush through your colon -- may have the greatest impact on colon health, lowering your risk of 
colon cancer and enhancing your overall health.” Read the informative article with good advice from the WebMD medical website.

Brenda Watson, Renew Life’s founder, educates people in articles and videos of what cleansing and detoxification are and how it can benefit the digestive system. She claims that toxins are stored in our fatty tissue which is the brain and anywhere we have fat on the body. In this short video, Watson breaks it down as to what toxins are present in our bodies citing a study which garnered surprising results that she incorporated into her product line. She suggests it’s best to start slowly if you haven’t done cleansing before. In a much longer video and article, Watson describes in detail how Cleansing and Detoxification can change lives through improved digestive care.

Whichever cleanse or wellness program you choose to partake in, water plays a major role in helping to flush out the toxins that get accumulated in our bodies from years of eating and not giving our digestive systems a cleanse or a rest for that matter.
