Liver Cleanse Side Effects Are Worth All The Hassle

When you start a liver detox, and you have no idea what to really expect, the tendency is to believe that things are going to experience some liver cleanse side effects; but at the end of the program, it will be worth it. Well here’s the truth – it absolutely sucks.

How about that? Didn’t expect that from a detox cleansing guru, huh? I’m glad you are taken aback, because one – I’m not a guru, expert, or doctor; so when I dish out my perspective, it’s coming from a real person’s point of view. Number two – even though I sell products online, I’m not the least bit interested in sugar-coating facts in order to get you to buy.

Think about it for a second. When you land on one of the many websites out there that focuses on health and fitness, you’re basically fed two voices. The all-knowing doctor voice that spews out facts about what you’re interested in; or the sleazy salesman – doesn’t matter if it’s a man or a woman, I’m talking about the persona.

You know what I mean, don’t you? From the minute you land on the page, they’ve designed the site in such a way that they’re selling you something from every angle. So those are the two choices we always have? Isn’t that a little depressing? Is there any wonder we aren’t able to get ourselves on track with our health in this country?

So when I say your detox is going to a pretty crappy experience, guess what? There’s a very good chance you’re not going to be happy while you’re on it. However, the point about it being worth once you get to the end is spot on.

Dealing With Liver Cleanse Side Effects

When you’re done, you’ve reset your system for the next 90 or so days. You can get proactive, and decide to adopt a diet that’s more in line with what a detox entails, or you can go back to the crappy foods you ate beforehand.

Just know that if you decide to go back to your old habits, you are probably going to experience the same stuff you felt during your first detox. Things like headaches, constantly going to the bathroom, constantly passing gas, felling like crap throughout most of the program, bad breath and/or a coated tongue, and last but not least – feeling hungry all the damn time!!

Now if you’re a newbie, and you’re doing this for the first time, like my main man Scar sang in, “The Lion King,” – be prepared. If you don’t experience any of this going through your first cleansing, you are already consuming a detox-like diet, so you’ve created a healthy terrain to begin with; or you are the luckiest SOB on the planet . . . and I salute you.

How do you minimize this stuff? My question is, “why would you?” It’s your body trying to get rid of all the crap you have allowed into your body – why would you try to stop any of it from coming out? That’s why you’re doing this detox crap in the first place!

If you’re experiencing headaches, drink more water. If you find yourself going to the bathroom more often – good; drink more water. Passing gas a little more than you would like? Excellent – drink some water, and continue to let it rip.

Bad breath? Drink water – think I’m playing? Check it out before you talk bad about it. If that’s not enough, consider coconut oil pulling. Just search it online, there’s more than enough information out there to drive you nuts about it.

Got a coated tongue? Great, means that that the detox is working. Go out and buy a tongue scraper, and wipe all that nastiness off a few times throughout the day. And if you’re hungry, then consume more of the stuff you are allowed to consume during a cleanse – salads made up of nothing but green vegetables, herbal teas, fresh juices, delicious vegetable soups, and green smoothies.

I know it’s not the perfect menu, but honestly – that’s more than enough to get you through a 3 day, 7 day, or even the pimp daddy of them all – the 21 day cleanse. Remember one thing, a cleanse is not meant to be a “pleasurable experience.”

Whoever sold you on that hustled you lovely. It’s a detox because you’ve been polluted. If you can hear me now, I would’ve said that last sentence with my best Tony Montana voice, because it’s true. For your body to function at a high level until the day you meet your maker, you need to make sure you’re doing all the maintenance work under that hood to keep that engine fired up.

The reality is that most people will never get on a detox at all throughout the span of their life – that’s sad. Sure, you may be able to swim through unharmed, like say a George Burns, who smoked cigars every day until he passed away. That guy was incredibly lucky – most of us aren’t.

On a side note, George also said he worked out daily, by getting down on the floor and doing pushups. We have seven major systems of elimination in our body – the colon, liver, kidneys, lymphatics, lungs, skin, and blood.

When you cleanse one, you help them all. If you focus on eating foods that help to strengthen them all, then you give yourself the best chance to function at a really high level – who wouldn’t want to be able to say they experienced that feeling at some point in their life?

Yes, a liver cleanse, or any cleanse for that matter stinks – but you’re going to be thrilled with the results and once you start doing them on a regular basis, they don’t bother you much at all. Like anything else, in the beginning, it’s bad – but if you can persevere through all the discomfort, it gets better, and will you.

A 2 Day Juice Cleanse Can Do Wonders For You

I’ve expressed several times on this site, the value of cleansing out your digestive system to help regulate your inner environment, and maintain some sense of normalcy in a world that is bombarded by toxins – toxins that constantly find their way into your body.

The best way to accomplish is either through what we at DetoxCleansingDiet.org call detox fasting or detox cleansing. Although this may seem like semantics, we find that after we go over the differences between the two, our clients find it easy to understand, and even more important – easy to implement; so let’s get into it.

A detox fast consists of drinking liquid, and liquid only. Sure other fasts out there, are built around not eating at certain points in the day, and eating at others – and this is why we make sure our clients know that our way is just that – our way. It is not the definitive way, and if you want to go out and do your own thing; that’s your choice. But here at DetoxCleansingDiet.org a detox fast is drinking filtered, or distilled, water with a pinch of Himalayan sea salt, and a squirt of fresh lemon juice, to structure the water of for maximum benefits.

Himalayan sea salt is supposed to contain 84 minerals and elements, although I haven’t been able to find an actual study that outlines these elements; so it might be more hype than anything else. However, Dr. Barbara Hendel’s published work, titled, “Water and Salt, The Essence of Life” states that this kind of sea salt is important maintaining a healthy balance of electrolytes (the stuff you have no idea what they’re talking about in Gatorade commercials), helping the kidney get rid of excess acidity, and regulating blood sugar.

The lemon juice helps you maintain a healthy amount of alkalinity in the body, balancing your pH levels. It helps reduce inflammation in the joints, helps flush out toxins, aids digestion and helps with the production of bile, and a whole host of benefits. So we take these two elements and add them together, and we stress that this structured water be consumed at room temperature – never cold. Cold water causes veins to constrict, which makes it harder for the trace elements to reach your blood stream.

Other drinks that are allowed are mixed greens that have been broken down into a fine powder you can mix with water. The producers of these greens claim that the greens “come to life” at the cellular level when they are mixed with water. Who’s to say if this is really true or just clever marketing, but one thing it doesn’t do is hurt you – that’s for sure. If you are going to buy greens, make sure to get a product with only the best quality of greens – organic.

The last liquid are fresh green juices, and these are juices with nothing else but green vegetables; which have a high level of chlorophyll in them. Chlorophyll helps the digestive process, helps formulate hemoglobin and red blood cells, and detoxifies toxins that can lead to cancer just to name a few of the benefits.

These three kinds of liquids are used during a fast, which can last as long as three days.  We don’t advocate going longer than three days on a fast because the metabolism actually slows down, as the body goes into self-preservation, believing it is in the beginning stages of a starvation. This process then releases the stress hormone known as cortisol, which causes a whole host of problems – most importantly, storing the belly fat known as “visceral fat.” Fasting can also damage muscles, which occurs because there are such high levels of cortisol in the system. All this cortisol releases amino acids from your muscles, and converts them into sugar. In other words, your muscles are being jacked for their amino acids – which then helps to break down your muscles.

There are even more reasons why we don’t advocate fasting past a few days, but this is more than enough reason for most clients before they agree. If you want to do more, once again, that is your business; and we wish you good luck on your journey.

A cleanse is made up of everything found in a fast, but green smoothies are allowed, which is a blend of green foods. Salads can be consumed as well, and in some instances where some of our clients are not able to handle a full “green” cleanse, we give them the option of adding fruits to the mix as well. With a cleanse, because you can eat, and because a smoothie is, essentially, still a whole food that has not been stripped of important fiber, we focus on seven to ten day cleanses. Although it is possible to stay on a cleanse for as long as 30 days, we don’t advocate it; just because it isn’t very practical in the world we live today.

A very easy cleanse to do is a 2 day cleanse, which is just applying everything we talked about, spread out over the course of two days. I believe, anyone can do a 2 day cleanse, even children, although it’s probably not a good idea if they have not been brought up with cleansing as a part of their experience – better to let them grow into pre-teens before introducing the concept to them; and even then it’s going to be hard – believe me, I know from personal experience. My son looks at like I have two heads when I ask him to do a cleanse; but I’m determined, and I know I’ll get him to submit at some point in time!

So there you have it, a cleanse anyone can do. The question is, are you going to read this and say, “Wow, sounds like a good idea,” as you go about your day; or are you going to take the next step and actually implement it in your life? This stuff only works when you work it. Check it out, the worst that can happen is that you last one day – that’s one day more of rest than they are getting now, which only helps.
