WELL BEING: Apple Cleanse

27 Jul


The old adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” isn’t just good horse sense, it’s also scientifically proven to be a healthy disease preventative.

These simple delicious little blossoms have benefits far greater than we had previously imagined, cleansing and healing the lungs, bowels, heart and warding off diabetes, cancer and high cholesterol.

What’s your favorite apple?

Choose from a wide variety of flavors including the tart Granny Smith, the juicy Fuji and even “Jazz” apples are a surprising treat, genetically engineered to taste grape-flavored.

When you have tried “everything” and are unsure of what to do about your stalled weight loss, recurring infections or digestive disturbances, try an apple.  The principle behind an apple cleanse is to purify the body of toxins stored in fat cells.

The pectin, fiber and malic acid found naturally in apples are good for clearing the body of heavy metal toxins such as aluminum, purging bile acids from the liver and lowering cholesterol.  Apples are a safe and effective way to energize your immune system while clearing out toxic waste.

Dieters who are looking for an edge to jump-start their diets may find a 1 to 3 day apple cleanse is the most effective method.  By skipping big heavy meals and consuming the whole fruit apples offer, the dieter takes the pressure off their digestive system, increases their metabolism for more effective weight loss and encourages the weight-point to re-set.  All that means easier digestion and getting un-stuck from an unhealthy weight plateau.

If a major cleanse is not ideal at this time, simply add a single apple to your daily menu or try a modified cleanse by enjoying 3 apples a day, eaten at the beginning of each meal.

5 Apple Cleanse Tips:

  • consume any variety apple , whenever there is hunger pains
  • drink plenty of filtered water to process all the fiber and aid internal cleansing
  • supplement with a daily multi-mineral and vitamin
  • enjoy Epsom salt baths to help leech toxins from the skin and ease muscle soreness
  • consult your physician before beginning any cleanse

Remember that just drinking apple juice is not enough.  The pectin in the meat of the apple and the roughage of the apple’s skin are all part of nature’s optimal health master plan.

*Diabetics and borderline diabetics, will require direction from their doctor before beginning a diet.*
