I completed a great 3 day cleanse last week. I lost a few pounds and felt great. I wanted to blog about my results. But first, why do we need to cleanse? Here are a few reasons:
1. we come in contact w/ toxins all day (and night)- pollutions, smoke, cleaning products, chemicals in food and water, cell phones, heavy metals, etc.
2. many americans suffer from some form of fatigue
3. joint discomfort is common as we age
3. digestive issues are very common in adults and children
4. to help with hormonal imbalances~ which can lead to many more serious health problems
5. for mental clarity
6. rid our bodies of yeast, viruses, bacteria, parasites, etc.
All these things can be linked to excessive toxicity in our bodies. Which is why short cleanses, done occasionally, can help manage the toxic burden our bodies carry. And by manage I really mean…lessen. Lessen our toxic burdens.
Did you know that certain toxins are stored in your fat cells? This is why it is even more important to exercise and loose weight. Weight loss from cleansing helps lessen your toxic load, just like exercise.
“Cleansing starts at a cellular level” according to health expert, Dr. Daniel Pompa. Your body is made up of 75 trillion cells and in order for you to be healthy your cells must be healthy. A healthy cell is able to bring nutrients in and push toxins out. If your cells are unable to accomplish this task, your health will suffer.
So how do you get your cells clean and healthy?
1) Proper Hydration
2) A correction ratio of the electrolytes Sodium & Potassium
3) Balanced intestinal flora
The Suero Cleanse accomplishes these 3 important factors during the 3 day cleanse. What is the secret ingredient?
Cultured whey is a 2,000 year old health secret. It was called the “healing water” by Hippocrates. Hippocrates, who was also known as the father of medicine, recommended whey to his patients over 2400 years ago.
Whey contains H2O and a balance of Sodium and Potassium. Sodium is essential for hydration because it pumps water and nutrients into your cells. Potassium function by pumping waste products out of the cells.
A major reason why Americans are unable to cleanse properly is due to the over consumption of sodium and the under consumption of potassium.
Cultured whey also contains live probiotics. Probiotics are “good bacteria” that line your digestive tract and support your body in cleansing.
The Suero Cleanse features SueroViv, a certified organic, alkalizing cultured whey beverage containing vitamins, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, organic acids, and an infusion of organic essential oils. It comes in 5 flavors: Green, Citrus, Gold, Raspberry Lemonade, and Orange Cinnamon.
For my cleanse, I ordered the Silver. On the Suero Cleanse I lost 5 pounds and noticed significant improvements in my mental clarity, mood, energy levels, sleep patterns, and digestive system. I could feel that my body was “super” hydrated and my skin looked amazing because of it. The cleanse was so quick and easy! No prep work and no juicing (big messes). Which works great for me because I am on the go with my 2 boys all day!
We should all do a deep cellular cleaning from time to time. My plan is to do a modified form once a month (maybe 1-2 days), just to stay on top of my immune system during the winter. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Remember to always ask your doctor, if you have any health conditions, before you start a cleanse. Luckily, when you order the cleanse, it comes with a great booklet explaining everything!
