Cleanses affect us both physically and emotionally
Sometimes it easy to forget when doing a cleanse not only are our physical bodies changed, we can also experience deep emotional shifts as well. During cleansing you may have an unexpected emotional clearing. There are various essential oil blends designed to help control your emotions and modulate and facilitate the emotional release. Herbs, such as St. John’s wort, kava (used with caution), and hops extract, are excellent for managing stress and negative emotions.
Which essential oils can help emotionally during your cleanse?
The essential oils of Valerian, Roman and German chamomile, and lavender, are exceptionally beneficial. Essential oil blends with tangerine, lavender, Roman chamomile, and blue tansy are calming and relaxing. Lemon oil is also calming. Most citrus oils containing aldehydes can be very calming in these situations. Vitamin B12 and folic acid are also important for emotional stability.
Ideally, these herbs or oils should be taken using oral infusion therapy (sprayed into the inside of the mouth where they can be most efficiently delivered into the blood).
What to expect.
The first 2-4 days of the fast are often the most difficult, since you will be overcoming the powerful psychological need to eat. As your body is cleansed of parasites, and putrefying toxins, you will experience a sudden surge in energy and well-being. Tapeworms, pinworms, and roundworms often start to appear in your stools (after 4-6 days), and physical hunger will fade away. As the cleansing progresses, your mind will become sharper, your memory will improve, and your spirit will become more buoyant.
Remember: It is crucial to drink plenty of distilled water throughout the day, at least 8-10 glasses. Water is crucial for not only flushing out toxins, but maintaining the metabolic machinery of your cells and tissue in proper working condition.
The Complete Cleanse
It is difficult to control internal pollution with a simple one-time fix or a single magic-bullet type solution. Complete cleansing requires a battery of different solutions all targeted at specific systems of the body. Cleansing the liver needs different herbs, oils, and minerals than cleansing the colon which requires a different cleansing solution than the intestines.
Complete cleansing also requires a broad array of products that are effective against a wide variety of contaminants and microorganisms-not just one or two. Contaminants, like heavy metals, need a different set of tools to deactivate and purge them from the body than parasites do.
An important part of a complete cleansing program is essential oils. Highly antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory, essential oils help dissolve and chelate toxic chemicals and poisons in the body. They also promote digestive function by promoting the secretion and production of natural enzymes that enhance colon peristalsis.
