I don’t know about you, but after a summer full of fun and vacations (and probably more indulgent food and drink than I should have had), I am feeling a need for a little boost to my immune system and my energy level so that I can start the cold and flu season off with a competitive edge against it.
With fall arriving in full swing, I know that those little germies are just lurking around the corner and will be here all too soon.
So.. I think it is high time to kick up our health a notch so that we have a chance of staying healthy this season, don’t you?
Plus, it is always good to do a little bit of housekeeping to our bodies at the beginning of each season. It helps us to prepare for the season to come while ridding ourselves of the toxins that have built up in our systems during the previous few months.
Personally, I truly believe in the benefits of doing a gentle whole, natural foods cleanse for a couple of days to accomplish this…
We all can benefit from a light cleanse mainly because we are exposed to toxins constantly in our daily lives from all directions – from environmental toxins, food contamination and pesticides, and even emotional stressors…. these toxins build up in our body and prevent us from being able to cleanse our systems efficiently.
The end result is bloating, sluggishness, fatigue, and immune systems that are not operating at optimum levels.
So spending just a couple of days nurturing our bodies can make such a huge difference in our health.
Some of my favorite benefits of a cleanse are listed below…

I have one favorite cleanse that I love to do at the beginning of every season.
It only takes 2 days and is jam-packed with whole, pure, detoxifying foods. At the end, you feel renewed, rejuvenated, full of energy, and even lighter.
The best part is that you do not feel hungry. It has some wonderful simple recipes for detoxifying smoothies, soups, salads, and juices.
If you want to start out this cold and flu season with a greater chance of staying healthy, then you may want to try this cleanse.
It gives you the entire shopping list with everything you need, tips on how to be successful with it, and is full of whole fresh detoxifying foods!
This one will NOT leave you hungry… I promise you that.
It will just gently detoxify your body, boost your immune system, and will help change your eating and health habits for good!!
