Craving sugar, a reliance on caffeine, over-eating, the “brain fog,” or all-in-all not feeling energized – these are concerns Dr. Frank Lipman fields from his patients, but they are issues that resonate with all of us.
Cleanses are not always easy, but if one is able to successfully complete one, they can detoxify the body and clear the mind. “I see cleanses as a way to hit the restart button,” Dr. Lipman told us. “It is an entry point into a healthy lifestyle.”
Connie, whom had never experienced a cleanse before, quit craving caffeine, made a permanent decision to cut out cow’s milk, and, although at times admits there were obstacles, found herself satisfied with her persistence and the payoff – a few less pound and an all-around glow.
Shari, whom had experienced every cleanse under the sun, found that the support of the Be Well cleanse helpful. The cleanse is regimented, but also allows freedom to choose one’s diet within certain specifications. “This helped keep my social life afloat,” Shari said. “There were on-line menus and affirmations to turn to in moments of weakness.”
Furthermore, beyond physical benefits, there is a mental aspect to cleanses. “For me,” said Shari, “my attachment to certain food cravings spawn from an emotional place. When I have to cut out indulgences, I examine what I am experiencing that makes me want to act on those cravings. In the end, I feel like I let go of a lot of unnecessary weight in my heart and mind, as well as in my body.”
Dr. Lipman confirms the beauty, wellness, wisdom connection. The difference between this cleanse and others is the support. “It contains antimicrobials that kill the bad bacteria in us. Additionally, it supports our bodies’ natural detoxification processes, like liver cleansing, while fiber is scrubbing out our guts,” Lipman says.
