Is It Time For A Cleanse?

Have you ever thought about going on a cleanse but hesitated, not knowing which one to choose or if it’s the right decision for you? Here at Be Well, we get a lot of questions about cleansing, and we see patients every day who end up embarking on a cleanse and getting great results.

We believe cleansing the body isn’t about starving yourself or skipping meals with family and friends. We focus on an elimination diet that rids the body of common allergens and inflammatory foods, and we add in shakes with detoxing nutrients that support liver function (the body’s main detoxification organ) and supplements that get rid of bad bacteria in the gut and promote healthy digestion.

Since the 1950’s, we’ve been told that eating fat makes you fat and that avoiding traditional fats (i.e. butter, animal meats, lard, eggs) in lieu of industrialized, man-made fat substitutes is highly recommended. Why did we agree to disavow several millennia of instinctive eating in favor of a high carb and sugar diet, deficient in this staple? It started with a misinterpretation of a manipulated study.
