To effectively set up a good environment for your intestines and other body systems to cleanse, follow these 4 steps:
Get rid of all junk, over-processed, and non-foods from your diet. Help your body remove toxins from its cells with cleansing foods and supplements. Young Living’s ComfortTone and ICP are great to start off as they contain herbs, fiber, and essential oils such as cascara sagrada, burdock, barberry, fennel, anise, peppermint, and more that are full of nutrients to pull leftover gunk out of your bowel, liver, kidney, blood, and other cells.
Choose real, whole, nutrient-dense foods, as close to nature as possible. 80% of daily intake should be veggies and fruits.
20% proteins such as grass-fed, wild-caught, and pastured animal products, raw/soaked nuts, sprouted seeds, grains and legumes, and “obscure” starchy grains like quinoa, amaranth, and teff. All foods should be chemical-free, organic, and local (when available).
Taking a quality digestive enzyme 10 minutes before a meal will ease your body’s efforts and allow it to focus more on cleansing and healing rather than the hard work of digestion. My 2 favorites are Young Living’s EssentialZyme and BEST Process Super Digest.
Consume supplements, herbs, and foods that are specifically healing like milk thistle, licorice root, aloe vera juice, and more. Young Living ICP and ComforTone are great products to help with soothing and supporting gut repair.
Adding fermented foods like kefir, raw sauerkraut, kim chi, and kombucha help to add colonies of beneficial microbes necessary for optimal health.
Probiotic supplements like BEST Process Alkadophilus and Young Living Life 9 are great to supplement the addition of fermented foods in our diets.
Following these four steps will get your body on the right track for cleansing, repairing, and a higher level of health.
