Spring Cleaning for Your Body

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

Spring is just around the corner and this may be a good time to start thinking of doing some spring cleaning... for your body. There are some great over-the-counter products that are gentle and effective. Of course, you should always consult with a health care professional to discuss what cleanse is best for you. Here are some of my favorites. Pathway Ultra Cleansing AM/PM: This cleanse is a gentle and effective 30-day program that supports the mayor systems: liver, lungs, lymphatic, kidney, colon and skin. Ultra Cleansing System is a two-part cleansing program with an AM and PM formula. Key ingredients include milk thistle seed, dandelion root, Oregon grape root, flax seed, artichoke leak, burdock, plus many other health detoxifying herbs. This product is also gluten free and vegetarian. Renew Life: This company offers a large variety of cleanses suited for any need. If you have never done a cleanse before, First Cleanse is a good option. It is a 15-day, two-part herbal cleanse formulated specifically for the "first time" or "sensitive' cleanser." It is designed to gently stimulate the cleansing and detoxification process of the body's seven channels of elimination: liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, blood, skin, and lymphatic system. Metagenics Ultraclear: UltraClear® is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support to address altered energetic and liver detoxification function in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Designed for those patients who may benefit from specialized nutritional support for liver function, this formula features a low-allergenic-potential rice protein base, which may be beneficial during times of increased toxin exposure. Enhanced with specific nutrients and antioxidants that support detoxification and energetic processes, this medical food provides well-rounded nutritional support.
