The best time to start a detox or cleanse is the beginning of spring & fall. It resets your health and cleans toxins. I am currently doing a GI cleanse which will help my digestive system.
How do you start a detox and cleanse?
First you stop eating any and all foods. That includes sweets and lack night snacks!
Then, you eat ONLY what the detox or cleanse requires. In my case, this happens to be in the form of a medical food shake, which I drink four times a day.
Note: In order to complete a cleanse or detox, you MUST make sure you are eating foods with proper vitamins and minerals. My shake has vitamins and minerals in it, but I would not suggest taking a cleanse without nutrients.
I included probiotics in my cleanse to help my immune system and keep a normal intestinal flora (to make sure you have good bacteria). I also take omega 3 supplements to help inflammation and L-Glutamine to help with digestion.
I only am taking this shake for three days, and after that I can gradually add foods like broiled fish, chicken, steamed veggies and low sugar fruits (berries) in my diet.
Foods that contain these ingredients are not allowed: sugar, gluten (I can't even eat gluten anyways -_-), alcohol, coffee, carbs, soy and any foods that you are allergic to.
A normal detox or cleanse would last 30 days, however, you can do it for any length of time. I personally have to do my cleanse for 3 months due to medical reasons.
