Does Eating Clean Really Make a Big Difference?
Clients often ask me why they should eat clean. The reality is, no matter how clean we eat, we live in a very toxic world. Before we even open our mouths to take a bite of food, we are exposed to vehicular and industrial pollution in the air and toxins in our cleaning products and cosmetics. Not to mention the havoc wreaked on the body by stress. So the question is not ‘am I toxic?’ but rather ‘how toxic am I?’
Not that long ago in historical terms we didn’t have processed foods, mass agriculture, or the levels of pollution we face today. Our bodies cleanse naturally, but they have not evolved fast enough to keep up with the increasing toxic load. When the body’s natural detoxification systems reach their limit, we begin to experience symptoms of over toxicity including:
- Foods allergies or intolerances
- Skin problems
- Weight gain or inability to gain weight
- IBS, constipation, or irregular bowel movements
- Hampered immunity
- Headaches or other pains
- Hormonal imbalances
- Depression, anxiety, or constant mood swings
- Trouble sleeping
- Low sex drive
- Sugar cravings
If you suffer from any of the above, this is a great time to hit your body’s reset button by eating clean. Even if you aren’t experiencing any symptoms, it is recommended that everyone cleanse seasonally to give the body’s detox organs a break.
By following my clean eating program, you will release the toxins that have found their way into your organs, fatty tissues, and blood.
Regularly Eating Clean allows you to:
- Alkalize the body naturally
- Reduce sugar intake and eliminate cravings
- Improve the function of the detox organs and boost cellular health
Good health rests on the condition of our cells. Healthy cells require the essential components of:
- Healthy foods containing nutrients and minerals
- Adequate hydration
- Well-functioning detoxification pathways
Simply put, when you are not getting these four building blocks for cell regeneration, you will not feel your best.
