Less is More

In a world of processed foods, environmental toxins, and more sugar than you can shake a stick at, it’s good to give our bodies a break from … well, ALL of it. There are myriad health benefits to nutritional cleansing, which is, at its core, reducing the amount of food we put into our bodies and ensuring that what we do consume is mostly raw and whole foods. Doing this for even a short period of time can be extremely beneficial. One study found that nutritional cleansing is great for your heart and your weight. Some findings link nutritional cleansing to higher levels of energy, better skin, and increased sex drive. Booyah!

Ypsi Studio owner Julia Collins periodically leads a nutritional 11-day cleanse using the Isagenix line of products, which ensure that the body has the nutrients it needs for optimal health during this time. The next cleanse starts on Monday, September 10, and it’s not too late to sign up or speak with Julia if you’re interested in finding out more.

I (Lara Z) can attest that I personally have done this cleanse, and I’m doing it again on the 10th. The first time I did this cleanse, I lost 12 pounds and felt amazing. It challenged me to be sure — I definitely had to battle cravings and the desire to shove an entire bag of cookies into my maw — but that’s the point. I believe our bodies can heal themselves if we give them the opportunity to do so, which means cleaning house every now and again.
