Whether to naturally cleanse your body or to prepare it for a change in diet, a detoxifying treatment is recommended during the change of seasons. Here are 5 natural cures you can try.
All detox cures have the same goal, that of detoxifying the body. The natural ingredients they are made with (plants, herbs, etc.) support the organs in performing their functions better, leading to better digestion and better waste elimination, in addition to increasing energy levels, improving sleep and brightening skin complexion. During a cure, it is imperative to drink a minimum of one to two liters of water a day, to increase fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish servings and to limit alcohol, sugar, dairy products, red meat, soft drinks and coffee consumption. It should also be noted that not all treatments are compatible with your state of health and/or your prescription medication. It’s best to contact Avril’s natural products consultants for more information.
This 20-day cure – mainly made of burdock, birch, artichoke, rosemary, figwort and thyme – facilitates the elimination of body waste by the kidneys, skin and mucous membranes (lungs), and helps to restore the normal functions of the body to be in better shape.
As recommended by Jacynthe René, the Christian Limoges Actumus cure lasts 21 days and includes nine products (in liquid, powder and capsule form) made from plants and herbs. They provide the support needed to systematically clean the body, freeing it from obstructions that prevent its regeneration and the absorption of the proper nutrients needed to restore good health.
This complete twelve-day cure stands out by its mixture of recognized plants that clean and drain the excretory organs (liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, skin and blood), stimulate the filtration and elimination organs of the body, cleanse the system thoroughly, increase cell nutrition capacity and prevent certain diseases.
Made from four unique herbs, this gentle two-week cure is a healthy way to promote digestion, nutrient absorption, circulation, cell regeneration, the immune system and the maintenance of a healthy weight.
This herbal cure, in the form of tablets and drops, provides complete detoxification of the colon and kidneys, acting on the urinary and gastrointestinal tract as well as the liver. Basically, it helps to maintain a healthy balance of assimilation and elimination.
