The reason why we only have one review in the body cleanse reviews section is because we have truly found the best cleanse for weight loss and health. The Total Wellness Cleanse is a holistic cleansing program that teaches you how to cleanse your body naturally through food. It is a one of a kind cleansing program where there are no expensive supplements or colon irrigation’s. Through delicious real foods from 119 wonderful recipes you’ll nourish your body with the vital nutrients it needs for optimizing detoxification and health restoration. From Ella’s Cleansing Journey you can see the benefits I experienced in only 7 days. We have referred to this fantastic total cleanse in some of our posts such as:
Where to start?
I began with the starter kit guide as instructed by my registered Holistic Nutritionist coach Yuri Elkaim. It can be easy to jump straight in as you’re excited to get going which is fine but make sure you don’t overlook the information presented here. It answered so many of my questions so it will help with any questions you have too. This is one of many jam packed health guides you’ll receive. It’s like a biology lesson as well as a guide! It has a plethora of information in an easy to digest way. Furthermore, it addresses solutions to health issues that you could implement right away.
Following reading this, I found out the current status of my body, both physical and internal such as cholesterol level, blood sugar, blood pressure and also how I feel about my body on a scale of 1 to 10. I recently had a check up with my doctor before the cleanse so I asked for my records to get this information, you can do the same. If you don’t have ALL the measurements right away, don’t worry.
You are encouraged to ask yourself questions such as what are my energy levels? How motivated do I feel? What is my mood? The starter kit guide then teaches more about the affects certain foods have on our bodies and provides motivational tips to help you reach your goals.
Here are my initial goals before undertaking the cleanse. It is helpful if you list your goals too as once you have a goal in mind you’re likely to stay motivated. You can read more about this on our mindset page.
- To feel less clogged up with mucus and have clear sinuses
- To lower blood pressure
- To feel less fatigued throughout the day
- Get rid of headaches
- Toned stomach
14 day Cleanse Phase
There are 3 different levels that you can follow to cleanse your body during the initial 14 day cleanse phase. You don’t have to stick to one type of cleanse either as they all have tremendous health benefits. The starter guide mentions that you can incorporate all 3 types of cleansing foods into your diet which is what I did. Whether it be vegetable juicing, a wholefood cleanse or raw food cleanse. Alternatively, you could stick to mainly raw foods and incorporate a few vegetable juices, the choice is entirely up to you. My advice is if your diet mainly consists of a lot of junk foods high in processed fat and sugars, I think it would be easier to follow the standard meal plan in order to wean yourself off these addictive foods. Then when your cravings have gone down you can then add more raw food into your diet. Raw food recipes are a lot quicker to prepare too and with the right sauce which there are also recipes for with this cleansing program, they taste so yummy! I was surprised!
My tip – cut out your biggest addiction first
A tip for you would be to cut out what you’re addicted to the most even before you start the cleanse. It helps to get you in the frame of mind too. For example, in March 2013 I avoided cake and biscuits for about 2 weeks before I started the cleanse as sugar was my biggest addiction at the time. I would eat about 6 biscuits in one evening sometimes and I could finish a whole cake in 24 to 48 hours, my sugar cravings were out of control. If you have a food addiction like I did it may help you as it did for me to cut out your biggest addiction first. If you’re addicted to caffeine for example, you could take the same approach and cut down on the amount of coffee you drink.
14 day Maintenance Phase
After the cleanse phase, the following 2 weeks is the maintenance phase where you can continue to enjoy more of the delicious recipes. What is really helpful is that the cleansing program also includes shopping lists for both the cleanse and maintenance phase, you receive daily meal plans, daily coaching emails and exclusive access to a Facebook group which I am still a part of. The amount of support you get is wonderful! With all these inspirational tools it’s very very likely that you will see results.
It doesn’t end there for me, since undergoing the cleanse, my health has been transformed and I continue to enjoy delicious healthy meals on a daily basis.
Can the Total Wellness Cleanse Help you Lose Fat?
It definitely can. I wrote a report about it entitled How I unintentionally lost belly fat in 8 days while enjoying delicious meals (no stomach exercises involved). My report also addresses more of my health struggles and how I overcame them. This will inspire you, you can get it for free here.
What if it doesn’t work for me?
Remember that you are backed by a 60 day money back guarantee if you don’t see results. So you really have nothing to lose and everything to gain when it comes to your health and reaching your ideal weight for good.
