We often hear the word “detox” (short for detoxification), in relation to the gut and digestive system, or we read about “cleansing the digestive system.”
But what exactly is a detox?
A detox is a systematic, step-by-step process that focuses on the cleansing of each organ to help rid it of toxins that affects its ability to function well.
A detox will usually focus on removing harmful organisms and chemicals while cleansing the colon, liver, and kidneys. If this cleansing of the digestive system can be done once or twice a year, it can greatly benefit both the mind and the body.
Many people report feeling lighter, having more energy, and clearer thinking, after detoxing their body for a short period of time.
There are many different detox programs: some involve fasting, or a temporary but drastic change to the diet, and some don’t. Cutting out processed, sugary, and unhealthy foods and drinks is almost essential for an adequate cleansing of your digestive organs to occur.
But Essential Oils can be an important part of the process. Essential Oils and related options that are cleansing to the gut include:
• Black Pepper
• Wild Orange
• Digestive Blend
• Cleanse and Renew System
Our company has a specific line of Essential Oil-based products called the CLEANSE AND RENEW SYSTEM, that, when used as a 30-day step-by-step system, can greatly benefit the whole body, helping it to function well, and bringing feelings of health and vitality.
This system involves three phases: an Activate, Reset, and Renew phase, each one lasting 10 days.
