Cleansing Fundamentals

Perfect weight and a youthful appearance are the result of clean, waste free cells, that is, cells that are free of inorganic toxic matter. However, with our modern diet and lifestyles, clean cells are not the norm. Rather, tis much more common to find a body that is riddled with cells carrying toxins, metals, bad fats and matter that’s not easily eliminated.  This is the fundamental root cause of our physical and , some would actually say mental ills and disease. So think of it this way WASTE = WEIGHT. Get the waste out and you get the weight off.

It’s just that EASY. Imagine relieving your body of the sludge, and the thickness that weighs you down and makes you look older that you actually are. So picture a dirty room in your home that needs cleaning. Now imagine that you all of the sudden found a great team of workers that would clean those dirty rooms for you. You are sitting there going, why didn’t I do this sooner, so you hire them on the spot. After a few days, you realize those workers have already done a lot of work.



The rooms that you didn’t really ever believe you could get clean are looking way better. Bu you’re also wondering what you are going to do with all the overstuffed bags of trash, dirt and garbage that are now all out in the hallways of your house. You are really not going to FEEL the benefit of all those rooms being clean until the garbage is taken out. So you call up the local waste management company in your area to have them come by in the morning to haul all that crap away.

They arrive right on time, and remove a lot of it, but they get tired and tell you that they can’t take it ALL! They said they will try again once they’ve had a chance to rest and give you the number of a waste management specialist that would be much more effective. You call and make the appointment ASAP… as you still have trash in the hallways (which is now stinking, rotting and making the whole house smell bad) and NOW you really see and notice a difference! With all the garbage out of the house, there is nothing but sunlight streaming into the rooms and giving your home pure joy and beauty. You can no longer tell that someone has been living and hoarding there for years. It looks like a brand new house!

So, LET’S FILL IN THE ANALOGY with the actually process of renewing aka cleansing your body a.k.a. “Your House.” Your cells are the rooms in the house. Enzymes and organic hydration from juices and life giving foods are the workers that will happily clean them. Your eliminative organs (Liver, Colon in particular) are the local “Waste Management” team. And finally, alternative methods of eliminating wastes and sludge are your waste management specialists. This process of cleaning your cells is the magic formula for removing all your excess weight and restoring your body to the “like new” or even “better than new” condition”

In order to start this process we need to put the workers on the payroll and get the waste management systems operating a full capacity. We can do that in just 5 steps that are super simple. You might also want to schedule a free health and wellness consultation with Ingo and Aimee as well to give you some insight for your particular situation or just to ask some questions.

Detoxification describes our body’s natural on-going process of eliminating toxins, aka taking out the trash. This is something that occurs naturally on a daily basis. A cleanse or detox program is simply a systematic approach to help the body remove toxins that are stored in body fat, tissues and organs. 

Does everyone need to cleanse?

Since our body has its own built-in detoxification process through our liver, kidneys, colon and skin, some people believe that additional cleansing isn’t necessary. However when we consider the toxicity of our environment and lifestyle, we realize our body may need a little extra help.

Our body is constantly exposed to toxins from everyday life. The chemicals we ingest through the food we eat, water we drink and air we breathe, become deposited in our fat cells and create an additional toxin burden on the body. Toxins are also found in cosmetics, perfume, alcohol, smoke, prescription medications, and household cleaning products.

Our stressful, adrenaline-fueled schedules also increase our need for certain nutrients, impact our digestion, causes inflammation and often prevent us from eating as well as we know we should. This lack of proper nutrition also impacts the body’s natural ability to detoxify and keep up with the external toxins that we face every day.

Over time these toxins build up and accumulate in our body fat and tissues. This cumulative buildup can affect our overall physical and mental health. From weight gain and low energy, to constipation, bloating, headaches, hormonal imbalance and impaired immune function. Symptoms can include indigestion, poor concentration, sluggishness, headaches and poor skin.

Gentle and regular cleansing can help to decrease the toxic load and allow the body’s detoxification systems to revitalize and rejuvenate. Best of all, cleansing gives your digestion a break, helps to reset habits and reduces inflammation.

What’s the best way to cleanse?

Contrary to many cleanse and detox programs that have you eliminate food altogether, the goal of cleansing is actually to nourish your body rather than starve it. Your body actually needs more nutrients, not less. There are vitamins, minerals and essentials amino acids (proteins) that are required for the detoxifications phases in your liver, so it’s important to choose a cleanse that supports those functions.

A nourishing cleanse is predominantly raw and plant-based because plants contain active enzymes and nutrients, as well as both soluble and insoluble fiber that is essential to absorbing the toxins released from your tissues, and carrying them out of the body.

At The Wellness CSI, our Lifestyle, Lean & Active cleanses contain delicious fresh juices, protein-rich smoothies, nourishing soups and refreshing salads, providing you with an optimal way for your body to cleanse, reset and rejuvenate.

While you should always check with a medical professional if you have any pre-existing conditions, at The Wellness CSI we believe that most of us can benefit from a gentle cleanse that focuses on filling up on the healthiest cleanest foods, allowing our bodies to take a break from things we tend to over-consume such as coffee, alcohol, sugar, dairy, wheat, animal protein, refined flours and processed chemicals.

When to Cleanse?

You can cleanse at any time of year. A cleanse can be a great way to reset your eating habits, get back on track or jumpstart a new routine. Regardless of how often you want to cleanse, we recommend at minimum four times a year. The change of season is traditionally a time to reset the body as it transition to climate change and local foods available during that season.

You can also choose to do a longer complete cleanse seasonally and then support your lifestyle whenever you need a reset or feel that you need additional nourishment. Our Signature G1, G 3 and G7 Gratitude Cleanses were designed with and for those with an active lifestyle and with this in mind.  

At the Wellness CSI, we are much more than a personal health, fitness and wellness company. Our recipes for juices, smoothies, protein shakes, and selection superfood recommendations have been designed to support you and your family’s healthy lifestyle throughout the year.
