Why do I need to cleanse?
As a society, we face an increasing challenge in the battle against environmental and societal toxins. We encounter substances every day in the air we breathe, food we eat, and liquids we drink that challenge our bodies natural detoxification system. These toxins include medications, pesticides, heavy metals, toxic industrial fumes, synthetic materials, cigarette smoke, caffeine, preservatives, and more. In addition to these environmental challenges, our bodies produce their own natural waste and by-products (such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, and free radicals) as a result of normal metabolism, which requires elimination. If these toxins are not neutralized and eliminated, they will lead to sub-optimal health.
