Why is it important to do a seasonal cleanse?
Banyan Botanicals gives an easy to understand analogy as to why seasonal cleanses are an important part of healthy living. Imagine you have a garbage disposal where you throw out food you no longer want. What would happen if the garbage disposal became clogged, but you continued to throw food into it. Eventually, the garbage disposal would start to smell from all the rotting food, it would back up the disposal and may eventually affect your pipes ability to function and flow. This is what can happen to our bodies, mind and our digestive system when toxins build up.
What types of toxins does a seasonal cleanse help release?
It’s important to cleanse or detoxify the body and mind to remove toxins which show up in our daily lives. Some external toxins that we’re exposed to include pollutants, pesticides, chemicals, such as caffeine, cigarette smoke, cosmetics, heavy metals, household cleaning products, pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals and preservatives.
All of these chemicals can affect our metabolic function. The body can naturally release these toxins, but the body can also become overwhelmed or overburdened by them. Internal toxins like carbon dioxide, ammonia and free radicals are also known to produce waste byproducts in the body.
