Cleansing
the body periodically is one of the tenets of natural health. The
purpose of cleansing is to assist the body in eliminating harmful
toxins which helps the body run more effectively and efficiently
which translates to better health. As adults, 80% of our energy
goes towards eliminating byproducts of normal metabolism from our
bodies. Our bodies are actually very good at eliminating things
that we don’t need; however, our modern diets with lots of
refined and processed foods tend overwhelm our bodies and clog not
just our arteries, but our livers, colons, lymph system and kidneys
as well.

From a naturopathic
perspective, most problems with health arise either from deficiency
or congestion. Congestion involves both overconsumption and reduced
eliminative function. Many of our acute and chronic diseases result
from clogged tissues, suffocated cells, and subsequent loss of vital
energy. Frequent colds and flus, cardiovascular disease, arthritis
and allergies are all consequences of congestive disorders.

Congestion
occurs when we eat and/or drink more than our bodies can utilize
and eliminate. I am not just referring to Thanksgiving or Christmas
dinners. The standard American diet includes many foods that tend
to be congesting such as fats, heavy meats, dairy products, refined
foods and chemicals such as artificial sweeteners, preservatives,
stabilizers, flavor enhancers, etc.
