Periodically cleansing your internal environment, especially for parasites, keeps your body functioning at optimal levels. Because parasites are so common and naturally a part of a healthy environmental ecosystem, it is a good idea to go through a parasite cleanse at least twice a year.
To receive the most health and detoxification benefits, ease into the cleanse with 1-2 weeks of the Body Ecology Diet, which includes unprocessed foods that are nutrient-rich, will not exacerbate an inflammatory condition, and are not commonly allergenic.
Phase 1 Foods:
Foods to Avoid Throughout the Cleanse:
BEGIN THE BODY ECOLOGY CLEANSE KIT REGIMEN
The beginning of the cleanse will reduce the burden on your digestive tract and gradually help the detoxification process. This phase is best for at least 3 days.
Phase 2 Foods:
The 3 day "fast" portion of the cleanse. This will give you the highest level of cellular detoxification and allow your system to balance.
Phase 3 Foods:
INCREASE THE NUMBER OF VITALITY SUPERGREENS DRINKS TO 3-5 DRINKS/DAY.
Cleansing with the refreshing Body Ecology Lemonade provides a wonderful detoxifying effect on the liver. Lemons are alkalizing to the body and stimulate digestive enzymes to flush out damaging free radicals!
In Chinese medicine, the taste of the liver is sour. Lemons are alkalizing, and due to their sour nature, they have a wonderful detoxifying effect on the liver. Lemons stimulate the production of digestive enzymes and are also full of vitamin C and antioxidants, which help to flush free radicals from the body.
Although similar to the Master Cleanse, Body Ecology Lemonade does NOT have any cayenne pepper because it can actually irritate the digestive tract.
In the morning, make 1-2 gallons. You will need:
Proportion of water to lemons is based on preference. When adding the juice of the lemon to water, be sure to include the pulp. Choose organic lemons. Add just enough stevia to balance the tartness of the lemons.
Gradually incorporate foods back into the system. For 3 days, you will be on Phase 2 foods before moving back into Phase 1 Foods. You can choose to stay on Body Ecology Diet Stage 1 for as long as necessary.
Phase 4 Foods:
First 3 Days After Cleanse:
REDUCE THE NUMBER OF VITALITY SUPERGREENS DRINKS TO 1 DRINK/DAY. With your enhanced immune system, your body will continue to detoxify at its own pace.
Move, stretch, and breathe: Movement can supplement the liver, unwind stagnant qi, and, because the skin is one major pathway of elimination, also help release toxins. In Chinese medicine, the element of spring is wood. Just like wood, we need the opportunity to grow and follow a natural progression of movement through emotions and experiences.
If we deprive ourselves of this, we may become angry, depressed, or stressed. These emotions can affect the liver. Spring is the prefect time to begin learning meditation or practice deep breathing.
Colonics: The best way to open the elimination channels and release toxins.
When deciding to do any kind of cleanse, it is important to pay attention to blood sugar levels.
Rollercoaster blood sugar levels can stress the adrenals. If you are hypoglycemic, you will want to simplify your diet, although not cut out food completely as this can cause more harm than good.
If you get sleepy after eating, chances are that you have some degree of insulin resistance.
A short 3-day fast is one step that can help with insulin resistance. Doing several installments of a detoxifying diet, sometimes several weeks long, is the best way to approach healing insulin resistance, and it is important to remember that removing sugary, high carbohydrate foods is more of a lifestyle change than a diet.
Many people report feeling lighter and having more energy during the detox period. Modern diet and food that is overly processed and inundated with sweeteners, as well as sporadic, on-the-go eating habits that are typically in large portions, are factors that are responsible for insulin resistant cells.
A gentle fast can rebalance how your body handles sugar. When doing such a fast, it is absolutely necessary to keep blood sugar stable by sipping on Body Ecology Lemonade.
Always check with your health practitioner to determine if a cleanse is best for you!

Kefir has many benefits, including better digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It has been known for thousands of years for its anti-aging and immune-enhancing properties.
Kefir is an ancient cultured food, rich in amino acids, enzymes, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and B vitamins. Kefir means "feel good" in Turkish, and that's just how you'll feel after drinking a glass in the morning! Easy and fun to make at home, it is superior to commercial yogurt. An absolute must after antibiotic use!
Unlike yogurt, kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract and is simple and fun to make at home. To make kefir: Mix one packet with 1 quart of warm milk, cover and set at room temperature for 18-24 hours. Refrigerate and enjoy!
Each packet yields 1 quart of kefir, and can be reused up to 7 times. This means you can create 10 ½ gallons of kefir from one box!

Unable to fully digest your food? Add more wood to the fire.
Assist SI bolsters your digestion by delivering more enzymes to where you need them most—in your small intestine. This is where tiny finger-like villi reach out and seize nutrients, pulling them into your bloodstream.
But if you don’t have enough enzymes to break apart large molecules of food, the villi can’t do their job. And unabsorbed food ferments in the small intestine, creating painful gas and irregular bowel movements.
Assist SI delivers the same enzymes that your pancreas releases into the opening of the small intestine, ensuring your villi have something to grab on to and that you get the nutrition you need.
