Deep Cleansing

Overview Of Cleansing Process;
  • Most disease and ailments come from a polluted blood stream and colon. If we honor these organs everyday by taking herbs that cleanse and strengthen, health is a going to be the result.
  • Remember; Gradual consistent changes are better than quick short-lived changes within the body.

  • If someone is at a state of imbalance, has an illness or have been diagnosed with a disease help them overstand that once they start cleansing, they will experience a cleansing reaction or healing crisis which will include some of these:
    • skin irritation,
    • headaches,
    • boils,
    • body aches,
    • random pain,
    • bleeding gums,
    • constipation,
    • diarrhoea
    • general unwellness
    • and more…….

  • My job is to help move the client through this part of their healing.
  • Its not what one does occasionally, but what one does regularly that causes real damage or change
  • I remind them that when walking on the healing path, remember the good, better, best principle.
  • Good; is making the critical changes in your diet by moving forward toward better.
  • Better; is arriving at a point where you eat only high-quality foods in the best manner possible.
  • Best; is when someone has the complete discipline and are knowledgeable of a range of aspects of food, diet, and related activities, for example, fasting regularly and being aware of your inner nature.
  • Your health is your responsibility, if you have any questions regarding cleansing process, please fill out the form below;

    Fasting Phase 1

    There are several ways one can follow to detox the system:

    • Water Fasting;
    • Dry fasting; 
    • Intermittent fasting.
  • Fasting involves eating no food for a chosen number of hours at a time. People following this cleanse regime need to get guidance from a practitioner who knows and understands how this works.
  • Fasting does something that cannot be explained by human language. You become aware of just how habitual the act of eating has become. Many of us do not eat for hunger, we eat for pleasure. Absence of constant pleasure exposes you to the emotions you mask with your habits and that finally exposes you to who you truly are. This is where the healing process starts, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALY, and SPIRITUALLY (Yada)
  • Fasting is the number one tool that has helped a lot of people overcome diseases, lose weight, detox, and reset their bodies to be able to keep diseases at bay. When you fast, the metabolic rate increases and the body switches fuel sources. So instead of burning food for energy it burns the stored food which is your fats.
  • The hunger hormone ghrelin comes in in waves, at times where the body has been conditioned to eat e.g. lunch or dinner time. It goes high to a certain point and if you don’t eat it goes back to base line. Your body is not shutting down hunger is not rising.
  • Fasting keeps your metabolic rate high and corrects the hunger signaling, that way you can keep weight off long term. This has been practiced for thousands of years, it not a fad diet or something new.
  • The new England Journal of medicine published that there is a significant increase in lifespan if you restrict calories.
  • Women should not worry about hormonal imbalances when fasting. The main hormone at work here is insulin it goes up if you eat and down if you do not. All the other hormones are not affected by fasting. The way to go about is to do it slowly, start by fasting 12hours, then one day a week until you can handle up to 28 days of fasting.
  • Water fasting- People who have chosen to follow this diet plan can have water or herbal teas, during the fasting period. This can be done for up to 28 days, anytime over 21 days we advise that you should be guided by a practitioner.
  • People should return to normal eating patterns on the non-fasting days. Eating in this manner reduces a person’s total calorie intake but does not limit the specific foods that the individual consumes.
  • A 24-hour fast can be challenging, and it may cause fatigue, headaches, or irritability. Many people find that these effects become less extreme over time as the body adjusts to this new pattern of eating. People may benefit from trying a 12-hour or 16-hour fast before transitioning to the 24-hour fast.
  • Many of the health benefits of intermittent fasting are not simply the result of reduced free radical production or weight loss. Instead intermittent fasting elicits evolutionary traits embedded in our cells. It improves glucose regulation, increases stress resistance, and suppresses inflammation.
  • During fasting cells activate pathways that enhance intrinsic defences against oxidative and metabolic stress.
  • Intermittent fasting allows you to change the metabolic pathways in the body (metabolic switching) where the body uses fat deposits during fasting period.
  • When we consume three meals and snacks all day, we are clogging the system and we need that famine period to start unclogging and cleaning the system.

    There are three main strategies

    1.  Alternate day fasting
    2.  Time restricted fasting
    3.  Intermittent fasting

    As long as the body is given a break so it can retrieve, clean, unclog and use fat stores. This results in

    *increased DNA repair,

    *increased protein quality control,

    *rebuilding the mitochondria

    *reduction of inflammation

    *extends lifes-pan

    These pathways are suppressed in people who over-eat and are sedentary.

    Book yourself a colon cleanse to enhance your fast and help the body release old waste.

    Gut Care Massage

    Hydrate, Cleanse, Rejuvenate and kick start your health

    Are you feeling stressed or anxious? You are not alone. In fact, you are in the majority. Today I’d love to show you a simple tummy massage technique that you can use in times of stress & anxiety.

    Anxiety can take a variety of forms and affect people in different ways. Coping with day to day challenges is difficult enough, but add to that uncertain health, financial and societal issues, especially in these unprecedented times of COVID-19 epidemic, and the underlying waves of anxiety can bubble to the surface for many.

    In times of high anxiety and stressful circumstances, I find that the simple act of staying connected to your gut can be beneficial to your wellness.

    So why should you be massaging your stomach (as if you really need a reason)?

    A quick, gentle rub of your tummy as you read this will tell you all you need to know why it’s a good thing. It just feels soooo yummy and relaxing. But it’s much more than just that. It’s especially a good personal care practice for your gut & digestion.

    Gentle gut massage relaxes your stomach muscles and digestive system, allowing them to focus on their main job of processing nutrients and disposing of waste.

    Get your gut gunk in the trunk unpacked and moving. 

    We can hold up to three kilos of waste (or gut gunk) in our front trunks! Three kilos of un-discarded food waste, bacteria, plaque, and, well, gunk. This build-up adds to weight gain and can contribute to fatigue and less nutrient and hydration absorption. Taking some green smoothie thirty minutes before you massage is an effective way of starting to gently clean and tone your gut, slowly ‘chipping away’ at the gunky build-up. Best oils Doing your own gut massage doesn’t require the use of expensive oils. It’s more important and useful just to massage regularly. If adding elements like oil distract you then do them every so often. But if you like it, using oil can add a little indulgence and be moisturizing. In Ayurvedic practice, sesame oil is used. Regular body oils work well, as do creams. It’s a personal preference for what oil or cream you use. Again, it’s more about getting into the habit of a lovely stress-relieving tummy rub.

  • Using your hands, rub them together it’s nice to add some of your favorite oil on your hands and it makes it easier to glide across your skin.
  • Begin on the lower left side of your stomach down by the bone of your pelvis.
  • Rub in a circular motion lightly.
  • Using both hands work gently around and down the navel.
  • Work your way down to the right to the hip bone and back up to the belly button for 2-3 minutes.
