Whether you are doing a cleanse for the colon, liver, kidney, candida or some other type there is one important step that many people neglect that a simple supplement can provide. A cleanse usually is used to improve one’s health by getting rid of toxins, waste, and organisms that can be harmful in the body. For example, when toxic elements build up in the colon, the result can be digestive and gastrointestinal issues, weight gain, allergies and even infertility. Doing a cleanse can boost energy levels, help the digestive system operate more efficiently, reduce unhealthy food cravings, and boost the immune system. Cleanses can be a very useful tool to keep the body running at tip top condition, but the problem for many people comes after the cleanse. There are millions of bacteria and microorganisms that live in the intestinal tract that are considered “good” or “friendly” organisms and are vital to the immune system and digestive system. When a cleanse is done, it is not able to differentiate between the good and the bad and wipes them all out. This creates an imbalance in our good organisms or probiotics and can leave us feeling fatigued, craving sugary foods, constipated, having diarrhea, create skin conditions, leave us susceptible to yeast infections, cause acid reflux and other digestive conditions, as well as leave us unprotected from cold and flu germs. Without the proper balance of probiotics we also do not get the nutrition from foods that we need to feed our bodies.
The Simple Solution
The solution to all this is simple. During and after doing a cleanse, resupply your body with probiotics and the prebiotics needed to feed them and help them flourish. This is sometimes referred to as a probiotic cleanse and differs from the usual cleanse that helps the body get rid of unwanted things. This type of cleanse is replacing instead of ridding. So how do you build your supply of probiotics back up? Simply by eating foods with probiotics such as good quality yogurt and kefir with live active cultures, eating prebiotic foods such as fruits and veggies, oats and whole grain rice, and by taking a high quality full spectrum probiotic supplement that has live active cultures. This full spectrum probiotic supplement gives you 12 key good bacteria including acidophilus, bifidus, and casei, the prebiotic inulin and some AFA bluegreen algae for extra nutrition. As you are rebuilding your probiotic supply to get the benefits of probiotics, be sure that you aren’t killing them off at the same time. This means you need to avoid foods that are processed, contain sugar or wheat, have hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup and alcohol. These types of foods create toxicity and allow unfriendly organisms to grow that will be in competition with the friendly organisms you are trying to promote.
A simple solution is very refreshing to find in our complicated, fast moving world. This one is about as simple as you can get. If you use a cleanse to clear out toxins and waste from your body, just remember to rebuild those necessary and vital probiotic colonies. Eat your yogurt, take your probiotic supplement and avoid foods that kill of probiotics and you’re on your way to increasing not only your supply of probiotics and receiving the health benefits of probiotics that are strong and healthy, but your overall health will benefit as well.
