Benefits of a One Day Cleanse

Have you ever had one of those days where something just isn’t right with your body? Days when you barely have energy, you’re tired and a little under the weather?

Maybe your body is trying to tell you something. Sometimes we need to take time out of our week to reboot our system. A quick way to do that is with a one-day cleanse.

A one-day cleanse is a quick, fasting session where you abstain from eating solid foods and consume fruit and vegetable juices rich in vitamins and minerals. Think of a one-day cleanse as a system reboot for both mind and body. It’s a day to relax, give yourself a break and just tune in to what your body is telling you.

All it takes is just one day each week to see the changes and really feel the benefits of the cleanse. Here are just some of the benefits to doing a one-day cleanse.

Cleanses and Detoxifies your System

We’re constantly bombarded with toxins and chemicals in our food, water and from other sources. A one-day cleanse helps facilitate our body’s ability to eliminate and flush those toxins from our systems.

Just a day free from artificial flavorings, processed foods, added chemicals and tons of sugar gives our bodies respite, lessens inflammation and balances us out.

When choosing a cleansing drink, choose a cleansing drink that’s nutrient-packed or one that offers up plenty of roughage like a spinach smoothie. Just make sure that your smoothies are made with 80% vegetables and 20% fruits. Use naturally sweet foods fruits and veggies like bananas or carrots to sweeten your drink. Other cleansing drinks include the Master Cleanse with lemon, cayenne pepper and maple syrup or herbal teas like chamomile, lemongrass, milk thistle (a diuretic), ginger or senna (a laxative). Other ingredient you can incorporate that detox the body are chlorophyll and activated charcoal. Chlorophyll improves liver detoxification, while activated charcoal traps toxins and helps eliminate them.

Helps the Digestive System

A one-day cleansing session gives your digestive track a short break. This is especially true for people who suffer from various gastrointestinal issues like excess gas and IBS. In fact, a significant portion of IBS sufferers have food triggers that make their IBS symptoms worse. Foods with alcohol, caffeine, dairy, gluten, high amounts of fat and others have been known to exacerbate the symptoms like excessive gas, bloating, cramps, and more. Abstaining from these trigger foods often decreases the severity of symptoms. Not surprisingly, research has shown that just a few days of liquid fasting could significantly cut down on symptoms.

A 2006 study in Japan of 84 patients with IBS showed that the fasting group of 36 patients who fasted but were also given 2 liters of fluid a day showed improved symptoms. Seven of the 10 symptoms associated with IBS like abdominal pain-discomfort, abdominal distension, diarrhea, and nausea improved in the fasting group.

One ingredient that is well-known in holistic medicine to improve gastrointestinal issues is activated charcoal. Activated charcoal, a detoxing ingredient, has been studied and found to successfully lessen intestinal excessive gas. A clinical trial of two groups in the USA and India treated with activated charcoal showed that both groups had reduced gas and had fewer cramps and abdominal bloating.
