When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
Focus only on your complexion, the whites of your eyes, and your energy level. Does what you see on the outside reflect how you feel on the inside? More often than not, it does.
If you’re full of toxic waste, you not only feel icky and bogged down on the inside, but it shows in our external appearance in the form of dull skin, dark circles under our eyes, and yellowing eyes. Toxins also eat away at our health shield, leaving us prone to infection, virus, flu and so on.
So what do you do?
A complete body detox is a step-by-step process that focuses on each organ involved in ridding the body of toxins. The program focuses on removing harmful organisms, chemicals, and toxic metals while cleansing your colon, liver, and kidneys. It is recommended that you do these cleanses 2x annually, for up to 10 days at a time.
While there are a plethora of detox options on the market, ranging from week-long juice cleanses to diet restricted pill heavy regimens, we think this 2 day weekend cleanse is the absolute best way to go.
