Solving the Health Puzzle: Your body reacts and responds differently than others' do. Your body may also change in responses at different times in your life. There is no one-size-fits-all prescription for health for every individual individual.
Learn about the various elements of health to use on your journey to understanding your needs and optimizing your health. The most important elements are Toxicity, Deficiencies, Lifestyle and Stress (both physical and non-physical), and Circulation/Movement. Learn more about these below.

Toxicity is one of the major elements of the health puzzle. Your liver, intestines (colon), kidneys, lymph and skin are all avenues of elimination to support for better health!
Where to start?
That is somewhat flexible - you can do a little cleansing to target problem areas.
But the most effective cleansing to unburden the body's toxic load is done in this classic order:
Colon/Intestines (Start here) - Liver and Gallbladder - Kidney and Urinary tract - Blood and Lymph
Colon/intestinal tract first, because this is where the wastes back up most. If wastes aren't eliminated daily through the colon/intestinal tract, toxic substances can be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream.
Then when the bowels are moving well, the liver is next so it can renew its function - to expel broken-down poisons out of the body through the gall bladder and into intestinal tract for elimination. Part of the liver's work is to also break down some waste it receives into water-soluable compounds that can be sent to the kidneys for elimination in urine.
Then the kidneys are cleansed, flushing them of excess mineral deposits, microbials and other substances. The kidneys will benefit more after the liver is relieved of its toxic burden, and the kidneys can then be more efficient in doing their other functions including mineral regulation, blood pressure regulation and helping blood cell formation.
Lastly, the blood & lymph are cleansed in a more detailed way, which goes back to help the liver and kidney maintain their cleansed state better, too.

When you are fatigued, not functioning well or in pain, all your symptoms are usually connected to each other. There may be several other conditions, like sleeplessness, stress and food cravings, but they are connected. Likewise, more than one organ or body system are involved. That's because your body organs and systems work together and if one is compromised, it affects the others. This cleanse draws toxins from your major body systems so it unburdens every organ in the body.
