Summary. Environmental contamination (pollutants in the air, water, and soil) results in a build-up of toxins in the body. These toxins are stored in fat. For some people, an excess of toxins can prevent fat loss because they exceed the ability of the liver and other organs to remove them from our system. A cleansing fast followed by a clean-foods diet, combined with nutritional supplementation, can help quickly eliminate toxins from the body.

Cleansing Programs – Overview. The goal of a cleansing program is to reduce food intake so as to reduce the toxin-load placed on the liver and other organs. Then, by boosting water intake and taking supplements, the body is empowered to cleanse and remove toxins more effectively. At the same time, supplements can be taken to help ensure that the body gets the proper nutrition it needs. This helps keep hunger down and optimizes body functions. Such programs can help kickstart a wellness lifestyle transformation. A variety of cleansing programs are available from different nutritional companies, and these generally attempt to accomplish the overall goals described above.
