Even though you are eating on the new well plan, changing habits can be somewhat stressful and temptations abound. Eating overly-processed or unhealthy foods can cause uncomfortable digestive issues and cause damaging toxins to bid faster in the body. This may be more noticeable if you have been eating well. There are ways the new well can help you minimize some of these harmful effects.
Overeating and eating heavily processed foods can cause our bodies to struggle with proper digestion resulting in gas, bloating, constipation, irritable bowel, weight gain, cellular starvation, food cravings and bulging bellies. Also, after the age of 25 we begin to lose digestive ability making the eating of certain foods harder to handle, and this problem gets worse as we continue to age.
If food is not properly broken down small enough to enter into the cells, your cells starve for nutrients and you crave more (probably unhealthy) foods, or quick jolt foods. You gain weight as a result because your body at a cellular level is starving for nutrients.
Taking a high quality digestive enzyme like Wellzymes is a fast, easy way to aid the digestive process. This enzyme uses a bi-phase breakdown of nutrients so they are tiny enough to get into your cells. This keeps gas at bay by stopping fermentation in the intestines. Proper breakdown of nutrients eliminates food cravings. The goal is to break down fats, carbohydrates and proteins completely, giving immediate relief of some symptoms.
Detoxifying your Colon
We take in more toxins today than our bodies are able to handle. Toxins enter our bodies through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and even the toiletries we use. Our bodies can become overwhelmed with this overload of toxins, so the toxins are stored in our fat cells. If digestion has been poor, we may have a build-up in our intestines, making toxins even more difficult to eliminate. This build up can clog or corrode our lymph system and bog down or thicken our blood. All of this makes us feel sluggish, bloated and can even affect our mood. But it goes even deeper than that, too many toxins in without a way of getting them out quickly enough has a synergistically harmful effect, causing free radical increase and speeding the aging of cells.
It is important to eliminate toxins whenever possible and to aid the systems already in place to function more efficiently (liver, kidneys and bowel). Wellcleanse pulls toxins out of the body via the bowel, and can work well to help keep our body’s natural detoxifying process, without causing dependency.
