I am on my last day of my Arbonne 7 day cleanse. I feel very energized and the whole process was very smooth—I feel great.
Typically I do at least one big cleanse a year. I started this practice when I was 25 because a friend of mine did a fast and it sounded really interesting so I did some research. I started pretty hard core with a water fast supported by psyllium husk and aloe vera juice, and it was a challenging experience but one that changed my life forever. I saw what was coming out of my system and among other thoughts, “thank God that is not inside my system any more!”
Since then I tend to prefer the master cleanse which is not a cake walk but it is easier to function in normal life than a straight water fast.
Time to clean house
The main goal of any cleanse is to signal to your body that it’s time to clean house. To stop putting toxins into your system and allow the natural enzymes and the function of your liver and kidneys to clean out the junk.
It had been awhile so I was happy to try this Arbonne 7 day cleanse when I heard about it.
This is not a painful cleanse where you don’t eat, it is much more gentle. The process is to simply mix one packet of their botanical based cleanse in to a litre of water and drink throughout the day.
I knew it was working
In the process I felt some of the symptoms of a typical cleanse:
– Bad taste in my mouth – when cleansing the toxins get stirred lose from your tissue and the tongue being a exit route for these, you will get a bad taste in your mouth. For example, if you are a smoker, or a past smoker, you will even taste cigarettes as your body purges those chemicals out. Best to do a lot of tongue scraping in the process.
- Tender kidneys – like any cleanse, the kidneys will filter out the toxins that are pouring into your blood as they exit the tissues of your body for elimination. That puts the kidneys on overtime, but luckily this Arbonne blend is a powerful support to your liver and kidneys.
- Digestional cleansing – I’m not going to get into it in detail, but trust me, stuff was exiting my body in an accelerated manner! (In a gentle way, nothing painful or uncomfortable at all.) But yes, I did have to go to the bathroom more often, a sign that it was working.
I supported the Arbonne cleanse with increasing doses of psyillum husk and benotite clay at night to help sweep away the toxins from the lower intestines. It is always a good idea to gradually add fiber to your diet if cleansing.
I also ate well and drank a lot of home made kombucha to support the process. My body was craving lots of kale the whole time, veggies and we ate fish as usual. Stayed away entirely from alcohol, and avoided sugar, processed foods and otherwise continued my vegetarian diet during the cleanse.
Right now I am feeling so energetic as a result! I can feel my body getting lighter and when you get a sense of the nasty stuff that comes out of the body during a cleanse like this, you know why.
Highly recommended as a relatively low impact, highly efficient cleanse that can be done without having to adjust your lifestyle. Give it a shot!
