Just as sure as November follows, October, that every January you will hear commercials for weight loss, and that the sun will rise, you can count on numerous ads for “Spring Cleanses” at this time of year! Year, after year, after year, after year, you hear the same old false promises of a quick solution to your health and weight problems with this approach. And you buy into them, because, hey, who doesn’t want to believe that you can eliminate decade’s worth of toxins in only ten days, as these imply!
Cleansing does not heal you, or lead to permanent weight loss, symptom reduction, or illness elimination as this program does
Cleanses actually remove very little, if no, toxicity/acidity from your body. Rather, during them, there is “no rain hitting your roof”—you eat no acidic foods like coffee, alcohol or sugar, etc. Or, you ingest alkaline minerals and foods, like lemon juice, green veggie juice, or supplements like Milk Thistle, which buffer—but do not eliminate—the acids in your body, again, making you look and feel better.
When you look and feel better on these programs, you wrongly assume it means you eliminated a lot of toxins/acids from your body.
There are only four ways to eliminate acids from your body—breath, sweat, urine and poop! There is very little about these diets, and nothing about these supplements, that help you breathe, sweat, urinate, or poop out more toxins/acids.
Sometimes your bowels become more frequent during one of these programs and you wrongly believe—because this is what “they” wrongly believe–that this means you are eliminating a lot of acids/toxins from your body. When your bowels move daily but your stools are not firm and very well formed, it means very little acidity is exiting your body (if I accomplish one thing before I die, I hope to get everyone to understand this concept!)
To eliminate billions of stored acids/toxins from your body, and to be able to maintain this effortlessly for many years to come, heal your bowel and body as described in my book.
