The Sunrider program (Nourish Balance and Cleanse) helps with natural cleansing all the time but Spring is time for deeper cleansing. Our continuing exposure to radiation and environmental toxins makes it even more important.
Spring is Mother Nature’s detox season — and the plant kingdom is loaded with sprouts, greens and berries that support the process. Each Spring brings an opportunity for internal cleansing and renewal…and if you suffer from headaches, indigestion, constipation, acne, bad breath, disturbed sleep, PMS or sluggishness, a spring detox could be just the thing you need.
Guidelines for Spring cleansing:
Include chlorophyll-rich, bitter, cleansing greens: kale, collards, dandelion greens, mustard greens, parsley, and turnip greens. Pungent, bitter and astringent herbs are plentiful in the Spring for good reason. They help to naturally expel the excess fats and proteins that build up during winter months. These bitter and/or astringent foods stimulate the action of squeezing at a cellular level to remove toxins. Chlorophyll oxygenates and alkalizes the blood. Greens detox lymph, blood and fat cells.
a great way to support a Spring cleanse. It stimulates the output of bile, which breaks downs fats and cholesterol. Dandelion root also acts as a blood purifier. It improves blood circulation — known to reduce cellulite, acne, and many skin conditions. Sunrider has made Dandelion root easily available in concentrated form. Especially in the Spring, take 2 or 3 Dandelion Root capsules each morning with your Calli or Fortune Delight.
great sources of chlorophyll. I use them both during a cleanse. Evergreen cleanses and deodorizes the bowel; it helps eliminate mucus and it supports blood sugar metabolism. Spirolina is also loaded with chlorophyll – and with antioxidants and trace minerals that support detoxification. Be sure to add these two green powerhouses to your list for Spring cleansing.
Add lemons and limes
These sour fruits stimulate the release of enzymes; they help convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can be easily excreted from the body. Lemons and limes also cleanse your liver which is the major cleansing/detox organ. Especially in the Spring, drink the lemon formulation of Fortune Delight — with concentrated lemon.
Add sprouts and spices
Sprouts are an extremely potent phase of plant growth. They are dozens of times more nutritious than the adult plant. They help build tissue and contribute to sustained energy levels. Spices such as turmeric, ginger, cayenne, cinnamon and fennel improve circulation. They stimulate the release of toxins both in the digestive tract and on a cellular level.
Spring berries and sweet fruits
Fruits contain lots of fiber. Apples, are particularly high in pectin which serves as an intestinal broom to clear out toxins. Sunrider’s VitaDophilus uses apple powder with pectin (as a source of fiber) to carry live, probiotic bacteria to your body. It also draws toxins (especially radiation) from your body. Whenever you cleanse, you should replenish your friendly bacteria. They support the immune system and the digestive process. (FYI: Recently a technician at an independent laboratory compared Sunrider’s Vitadophilus to several other acidophilus formulas. The technician wanted to show there was no difference. But to the technician’s surprise Vitadophilus was the only formula that grew 100% pure — others had other bacteria growing in the culture – just one reason VitaDophilus works when others fail.)
Eat lots of vegetables – and stay away from sugar, caffeine, and processed foods.
Any form of movement or stretching is good — especially in the Spring with a cleansing program. It encourages deep breathing and helps to keep everything moving as you release toxins. Go for brisk walks, swim, ride a bike or find another form of whole body movement. If you own a rebounder, 10 minutes a day will go a long way to supporting your Spring cleanse.
Sauna or sweat therapy:
Sweating is one of the best ways to eliminate the toxins – through the skin. Take a series of hot baths with a half cup of baking soda and/or other salts of your choice (natural salts help to draw and hold toxins so they are not re-introduced back into the body) or use a sauna.
Nothing supports the body’s cleansing and elimination like water. Water hydrates the blood and the lymph so that toxins can move rapidly through the detoxification pathways. And water is obviously important during the final stage of elimination, lubricating the intestines and providing the basis of urine. Always drink more water during a Spring cleanse.
Foundational Sunrider support:
In my opinion, the foundation of any cleanse, should be the Sunrider basic three:
The regenerative foods in NuPlus/VitaShake provide simple, easy to digest whole-food nutrition while you focus on moving out the toxins.
Try the Apple cinnamon formula (with apple pectin and cinnamon) or the mixed berry (with extra antioxidants).
Quinary feeds the five systems so that each one can cleanse more deeply.
I like to add additional Assimilaid during a cleanse (for the digestive system).
Calli and Fortune Delight are the cleansing foods of the Sunrider program.
Calli is an ancient Chinese cleansing formula. It nourishes the liver and kidneys — the major detoxifying organs. Fortune Delight includes herbal extracts with powerful antioxidants for the cleansing process.
