Does Cleansing Work?

Published by Lisa Schagunn on

Whether it was a girlfriend at the gym, your partner, or colleague at work, people are talking about cleansing and detoxing more frequently as making a conscious decision get healthier, using a variety of means, becomes more mainstream.  Some people choose to do juice fasts that can cost about $200 for five days or live on only water for a week.  Although there may be some appeal to going to the extreme, it doesn’t mean that it is healthy.

Many cleansing programs are either high in sugar with virtually no protein to preserve muscle or actually have no scientific evidence of their efficacy.  Before you decide to fork out some hard earned money, there are several things to consider when it comes to cleansing and you might be wondering – does cleansing actually work?

What is Cleansing?

Forget hours in the bathroom, cleansing is an age-old practice that can be traced back to ancient Greece, Rome, China, Indigenous Tribes, and even The Bible.  Either through fasting rituals that allowed one’s body to rest while simultaneously clearing the mind for prayer, or ingesting herbs, teas, or sweating in extreme heat, cleansing the body has been practiced, and continues to be practiced, around the globe.

Almost every religion from Christianity to Judaism to Hindu to Islam has some form of fasting and prayer ritual designed to both build discipline and open one’s mind to God.

The Reported Benefits of Cleansing

People who regularly cleanse report a variety of benefits including:

  • Greater clarity
  • Better sleep
  • Feeling calmer
  • More energy
  • Reduced weight
  • Improved stamina
  • Reduction in cravings for sugar
  • A healthier sense of fullness

Many people choose to cleanse because they want to lose weight.  This should not be the number one motivator.  Giving the body a rest, assisting our systems with clearing out excess waste, and focusing on overall health should be the primary reasons to cleanse; releasing fat should just be a good secondary outcome however with the right system – fat loss can be a solid benefit.

Cleansing Makes Sense – We Are Consuming More Calories and Our Bodies Need a Break

Daily caloric consumption is up 24% over the 1960’s with the average person ingesting about 3600 calories.  The average person is burning only about 2000 calories per day.  If you do the math, you can easily see an excess of 1600 calories which can easily add up to gaining unwanted pounds and inches.

When we cleanse, we give our bodies a much needed break.  When we constantly eat more calories than our bodies can handle, we tax our systems.  Once in awhile is fine however repeated stress on our digestion and other organs, such as our liver, can eventually lead to fatigue, weight gain, lethargy, and more.  Cleansing allows our bodies to have a well-deserved rest.

Does The Isagenix(tm) Cleanse Really Work?

Isagenix(tm) is one of the few companies out there that puts its money where its mouth is.  There are numerous clinical studies on the benefits of the program with results that include greater fat loss, increased visceral fat loss, reduction in oxidative stress, improved stamina, and much more.  Details of those studies can be found here.

The reality is that everyone’s body is different and the only way to truly find out if Isagenix(tm) is going to work for you is to try it.  Customers generally start with a 30 Day Cleansing System or Value Pack if they tend to want to snack and have other family members who may want to try the products.  If you have never experienced Isagenix(tm), you can begin your journey here.

The program is simple to follow with only 2 types of days – cleanse days and shake and solid days. During the course of one month, you will have 4 cleanse days – either one per week or two back-to-back cleanse days on two consecutive weeks.  On the shake days, you will replace two meals, or snacks, with either a whey or dairy-free shake, and have 1-2 healthy meals.

The other benefit of Isagenix(tm) is unlike traditional juice fasts which can strip your body of muscle, this program is rich with protein so you will retain your lean mass.  This is why many athletes and fitness professionals choose this program.

Why Should I Buy Isagenix(tm) Through A Representative?

Unfortunately, there are many unauthorized sellers out there who distribute products on large e-commerce platforms.  If you choose to buy Isagenix(tm) on one of these platforms you have no guarantee that the products are authentic, you will not receive coaching support, and you may end up purchasing products that are expired.  Furthermore, there will be no money-back guarantee.

What If I Don’t Like It?

Isagenix(tm) comes with a full money-back guarantee.  If you purchase through an authorized representative, you will be able to return your products if you are not satisfied.

Lastly, if you are feeling sluggish, have no energy, aren’t sleeping well, and frankly – frustrated with your body, cleansing might be for you. The only way you will ever know if it works is to try it.  The Isagenix(tm) program generally takes 3-5 days to arrive and imagine that you give it a try and it does work – one week from now, you could already start feeling better and with more energy, stamina, and overall well-being than you have had in a long time.

I haven’t tried Isagenix.  I am ready to do this!
