The Benefits of Cleansing: Feel Good Style
From the hottest celebs to the mom-next-door, it seems like everyone is buzzing about the benefits of cleansing. For some it’s a quick fix before a special event, or a detox after a period of overindulgence. But those “in the know” know that cleansing the body a few times a year is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.
When the body’s organ systems are burdened by an accumulation of toxins and environmental pollutants, or are neglected by inadequate exercise and a standard American diet, this directly affects how we look, think, and feel.
Cleansing Feel Good World style is not about “fasting” and deprivation. No way! Rather, it’s a golden opportunity to give yourself the gifts of self-care, healing, rest, rejuvenation, deep nourishment, and cellular cleansing.
Our signature programs are customizable and can help anyone lose weight and/or inches, sleep better, increase energy and truly FEEL GOOD from the inside out. Maybe you generally feel fine but really want to kick it up a notch and look and feel as fabulous as possible. Cleansing is a perfect opportunity to help reverse and prevent illness and to recharge your body.
Definitely give cleansing a try if you:
- Have trouble losing weight
- Feel tired, sluggish, bloated, or “heavy”
- Experience insomnia, trouble sleeping, or wake feeling unrested
- Have allergies, asthma, chemical or food sensitivities
- Suffer from constipation, irregular bowel movements or other digestive problems
- Have been eating a standard American diet
- Frequently get colds or seem to catch every bug that goes around
- Have hormonal problems or frequently feel moody, grouchy or fuzzy headed
So what’s unique about cleansing Feel Good World Style?
Founder and in-house expert Christy Whitney says, “The Feel Good World focuses on lifestyle changes and it is important to ease into the transition. Going cold turkey is not the best answer for many nor is treating the day before a cleanse like your last supper. We help clients transition painlessly onto a cleanse and also support the transition off of it.”
Detoxification, NOT Deprivation
Cleansing doesn’t have to be synonymous with hunger. Participants in our cleanses are often surprised by how satisfying the cleanse-friendly food we provide is. Eating nutrient-dense food means you don’t need a lot to be satisfied so overall calorie intake is naturally lower. The calmer emotions, better sleep, improved digestion, and no more cravings also help keep appetite in check.
When the body is running on clean, nutritious fuel, essential biochemical processes such as metabolism, neurotransmitter production, and hormonal regulation are unhindered. This means things like our mood and libido, as well as our ability to stand up to stress and think clearly and calmly are at optimal levels. Not to mention our skin and hair have a healthy glow and our systems are better able to combat illness and resist disease.
Enhance Your Cleanse: Supplements, Saunas, and More
For us cleansing is about getting back to basics, building a foundation for health, and educating participants. The key is to find out what each person needs individually. We also recommend general supplements that most people can benefit from including probiotics from soil-born organisms, full spectrum minerals, and powdered greens.
In our group cleanses Christy spends a lot of time individually testing each client to individualize supplements and all of our cleanses emphasize properly hydrating the body, balancing PH, and obtaining minerals.
Sweating is extremely important for the detoxification process. Our skin is our largest organ and it can only cleanse by sweating. Regularly building up a good sweat can also help reduce inflammation and increase weight loss.
One of the great things about The Feel Good World is we offer everything you need to enhance your cleansing experience, under one roof! We highly recommend supporting your cleanse with the following:
- Infrared Sauna
- Colon Hydrotherapy
- Movement Classes
Beyond the Cleanse
If you plan on going back to your old eating habits right after then why even go through a cleanse? Cleansing gives you an opportunity to hit the reset button and embrace a new way of living and being in relationship with food. You learn during our cleanse what food supports you in feeling good and thriving as opposed to food that drains your energy and contributes to the body breaking down.
Naturopath Dr. Cory Reddish says, “Cleansing and fasting is like going to a foreign country–the foods are different, the lifestyle is different. It really gives you a chance to witness and reflect on the current state of affairs in your homeland.”
When you can ease into and out of a cleanse respecting your body and not abusing it, then it will thank you by giving you the gift of Feeling Good.
