I have been wanting to do an intense cleanse for a while now but it never seems to be the right time. There’s always events on that involve a social or celebratory glass of wine or events where sugary food will be involved. Now don’t get me wrong, I live a fairly clean existence most of the time and when socialising still avoid these foods wherever possible but with the cleanse it is important to avoid all of these foods and more for it to be fully effective. So, after a relatively indulgent holiday in Byron Bay, my partner and I decided it was time to bite the bullet. 60 days of an anti – fungal/anti parasitic protocol called the All Natural Cleanse.
Now I consider myself to be a very healthy person, I live and breathe the 6 foundation principles I believe are the cornerstones of health but despite this fact, believe that regular cleansing and detoxifying is necessary for everyone. In addition to this my personal research as well as experience is that even the most “clean” person can be living with a fungal or parasite infection. Unfortunately I was not always as health focussed as I am now and over the years was exposed to antibiotics, prescription medication, general anaesthetic, highly processed foods and more.
Fungal and parasite infections are much much more common than most of the medical professions would care to admit. If you have any of the following symptoms you may be suffering from a fungal or parasite infection –
– Bloating, gas
– Diarrhea &/or constipation
– Muscular or joint aches and pains
– Irritable Bowel Syndrome
– Chronic fatigue
– Yeast infections such as candida, tinea, jock itch.
– Skin problems such as rashes, hives, eczema, acne and more.
– Sleep problems
– Weakened Immume system
– Moodiness, anxiety
– Weight gain or retention
– Insatiable appetite
In addition to this if you have ever had exposure to the following –
– General anaesthetic
– Anti biotics
– Prescription medications
– Travel overseas to destinations such as Asia, India, Africa.
– Regular close interaction with domestic animals such as dogs and cats (allowing them to kiss you is particularly problematic)
Living with this obviously causes health problems but more importantly can compromise your energy and vitality on a day to day basis. There are a lot of different cleanses on the market these days, some much better than others. Some cleanses are based on a high amount of laxatives or stimulants (or both). These can result in some weight loss, which for the most part is water. The problem with most of these cleanses is that although they provide some short term relief they are not addressing the underlying problem and so the symptoms return.
The All Natural Cleanse is made with completely natural and organic ingredients and is formulated specifically to kill off the parasites, cleanse the colon and address the powerful toxins associated with fungal infections.
It calls for no dietary adjustments whatsoever but I am also following an anti fungal diet which is a common protocol with most cleanses. I will share that in later posts.
