Why we cleanse during October
The best month to Detox is October. It’s when the season gets cooler, there’s no holiday events or dinners, so you have from 5 days to 30 days to clean out throughly.
Cleansing form the inside out gives the body a chance to reset, and remove built up toxins and debris we’ve accumulated over the summer and get on track to a fresh start into the holiday season.
Do you need more Energy, or Focus to accomplish more projects? Have better digestion, clear up your skin, or maybe you want to lose weight before the upcoming festivities.
Start with a 5 day cleanse. Monday through Friday seem to be the most effective for most people.
Then as you master the first 5 days, maybe move up to 10, 20 or for the competitive personality 30 days.
The October cleanse means obstaining from all animal products and starches for 5 days. Followed by 2 days of vegeterain / vegan meals to slowly reintroduce normal foods back into your diet.
Try to avoid Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, Beans and Lentils during the cleanse. It can cause gas which will bloat and constipate you. Also try to cut back on caffeine as much as possible, for it is very dehydrating.
Do Pureed Soups three times a day and Green Juices 2-3 times daily. Also, drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of Alkaline Water daily, with compensations for working out as well as caffeine intake if any. Example, if you way 120 lbs then you must have 60 ounces of alkaline water. If you work out hard for an hour you must drink 40 more ounces of alkaline water. If you drink 8 oz of coffee or green tea you must drink 24 more ounces of alkaline water and so forth.

Soups are best made fresh at home. There are delicious and healthty soups at Whole Foods, Erwhon, and even at Vons. Try to heat on stovetop. Avoid microwaves as much as possible.
Green drinks can be made at home or you can go to Whole Foods, Erwhon, Movita, Trader Joes, Jamba Juice or anywhere making Green Vegetable, or mostly Vegetable drinks. A good base is celery, parsley, spinach and or kale, cucumber, green apple, turmeric, ginger, chlorophyll etc..
Alkaline water can be found in any store including Costco and the 99cent store. The reason for alkaline water versus regular waters is the ph level. Alkaline water helps you become more alkaline versus acidic. Refer to my video in my website.
Move a little bit more. Exercise is very helpful to increase circulation to reach an optimum detox effect. Even if that means walking around the block 3 times a week. Swing your arms a little higher by your sides to get the heart pumping.
This cleanse can be done throughout the year, and is an amazing way to RESET you body to become the best you!
