Do you feel tired and sluggish most days? We’re all busy and seem to accept the fact that we’re lacking energy and dragging ourselves from one task to another. This lack of energy could be the result of toxic overload. What if there was a way to cleanse your system and restore your healthy gut flora so that you regain energy, find it easier to maintain optimum weight and don’t pick up every bug going?
Your body is detoxing all the time, through your liver, digestive tract, skin and kidneys. So, you may wonder why you should embark on a ‘detox’ programme. The answer is that even though you are detoxifying without any extra effort naturally, it is very likely that your body can do with some help. The fact is that we are exposed to the same amount of toxins daily that our grandparents were exposed to yearly. It is true that our bodies are designed to deal with toxins but it is also true that there are things that we can do to help it on its way.
The doTERRA 30-day Cleanse and Restore programme is designed to support your body de-toxify to restore your optimum gut bio-flora and energy levels. You can achieve the same by drastically adjusting your diet and lifestyle and I strongly suggest that you do that anyway, but that will take much longer and you need to know what you’re doing so if you want to see and feel results quickly, you will benefit from the cleanse and restore programme. The benefits will be increased energy, improved gut flora, improved immunity and support for optimum weight.
Detoxification is all about minimising the toxic load. We are exposed to toxins all day long in our environment, through unhealthy foods, exhaust fumes, radiation, chemical skincare, household products and make-up, etc. Our bodies have a number of different passageways through which it is directly exposed to toxins and several different mechanisms that it uses to deal with this exposure. The three most vulnerable pathways are the lungs, the digestive tract, and the skin. Our lungs, kidneys, skin and liver are the organs that are involved in the detoxifying process.
Internally, a healthy body hosts bacteria that assist our inherent defence mechanisms in minimising toxic load. The digestive tract is populated with trillions of microorganisms that collectively form a natural ecosystem. These microorganisms, commonly referred to as gut microbiota, microflora, or ‘friendly-flora”, play a significant role in overall health. Without a thriving probiotic environment that fosters the growth of these microbiota, less-friendly microbes have free reign to stress the gastrointestinal tract. These microflorae serve a number of different purposes. The friendly-flora help maintain digestive efficiency, produce enzymes that break down proteins into usable amino acids, help the body produce and metabolize a number of different vitamins, and are key in the transportation of vitamins and minerals through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. Without them, several metabolic processes and neuromuscular functions are hindered, nutrient deficiencies arise, and our immune system’s ability to respond to threats weakens.
The doTERRA 30-day Cleanse and Restore programme will provide your organs with all the support they need to optimise nutrient uptake and energy levels. Here’s what’s involved. This detoxification program is simple and easy to follow. Consisting of a series of innovative products that work with your inherent cleansing processes, when combined with a healthy diet, the renewing cleanse works to maximize the health and efficiency of your vital cleansing organs so that you can minimize toxic load naturally and maintain the results long-term. The foundation of your 30-day renewing cleanse is the eight components Cleanse & Restore Kit:
GX Assist® is doTERRA’s answer to immediate detoxification needs. A combination of CPTG® essential oils and caprylic acid, GX Assist supports natural detoxification by creating an unfriendly environment for toxins in the digestive tract. The proprietary essential oil blend helps purify and cleanse the digestive system while the caprylic acid supports overall digestive health and microbial balance. Your 30-day renewal should begin with taking GX Assist for ten days, one soft-gel per meal, up to three per day. Begin with a single soft-gel each day to assess your tolerance.
Rounding out the first phase of your 30-day renewal program is PB Assist®+ Probiotic Defence Formula, a combination of pre-biotic fibre and six strains of probiotic micro-organisms that encourage healthy microflora growth. When taken following 10 days of GX Assist, PB Assist+ promotes a positive balance of microflora, resulting in optimal digestive and immune system, and gastrointestinal tract function. One vegetable capsule, three times per day with a meal, is all you need to encourage the replenishment of friendly microflora population.
Throughout the entire 30-day renewal program, two other supplements should be taken for additional cleansing support:
First, the Zendocrine® Detoxification Complex is a proprietary blend that helps support the healthy functioning of the liver, along with the kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin. It comes in either a vegetarian capsule or soft-gel, depending on your delivery preference. For those concerned about the long-term health of their liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin, Zendocrine may be taken daily throughout the year, but for those only looking for a “one-off cleaning,” it is an integral part of their 30-day renewal. Two capsules or soft-gels daily, one each with morning and evening meals, along with a diet based on whole nutrient-dense food will support normal self-detoxification functions of the liver and other cleansing organs.
DigestZen Terrazyme® Digestive Enzyme Complex works synergistically with Zendocrine as a daily supplement to support the body’s natural detoxification processes, but also as a key factor in a 30-day cleanse. One of the biggest issues with toxification is the nutritional deficiencies that arise from the heavily processed and preservative-packed modern diet. A proprietary combination of active whole-food enzymes and supporting co-factors, DigestZen Terrazyme provides the deficient nutritional components vital for healthy digestion, metabolism, and cellular energy development. Take one to three capsules with meals throughout the day, usage amount dependent on the nutritional-density of the meals (take only one capsule if the meal includes nutrient-dense whole foods), to support natural detoxification.
Lastly, doTERRA offers a line of nutritional supplements that, along with proper diet, can promote maintenance of your body’s natural toxicity defenses. The doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® consists of three nutritional supplements that should be a part of your daily nutrition plan, but are especially important as part of a detoxifying cleanse:
Microplex VMz® Food Nutrient Complex provides a balanced formula of bioavailable vitamins and minerals to address nutrient deficiencies and support healthy metabolism and cellular energy.
xEO Mega® is a proprietary blend of omega fatty acids and CPTG essential oils to support many crucial bodily processes, including immune function. Alpha CRS®+ Cellular Vitality Complex is an innovative combination of botanical extracts that support healthy cell function and cellular energy. Together these supplements provide the nutrients vital to maintain your health and increase the effectiveness of your cleanse.
These supplements can be combined with other doTERRA products throughout the program, depending on your individual goals, the products in the Cleanse & Restore Kit can be taken along with other doTERRA essential oils and nutritional supplements. The kit includes 15 mL of Lemon essential oil, which can be added to your favourite beverage to assist the internal detoxification process.
For those interested in weight management, the Slim & Sassy® line is a great complement to your spring cleaning, especially the metabolic essential oil blend and soft-gels. Along with helping to manage your appetite and supporting healthy metabolism, the proprietary combination of CPTG essential oils also helps support the health of your vital organs.
