Our standard American diet is far from being ideal. It’s laced with sugar, fats, preservatives, and unpronounceable chemicals that have a profound effect on our minds and bodies. Let’s not forget the over the counter and prescription drugs we also put in our bodies as well. And then there are the environmental pollutants that can reside in our cells. This overload can overwhelm our bodies and create illness or disease. A great way to rid our bodies of toxins is by doing a cleanse.
Detoxing the whole body is not new. It’s been practiced for centuries and for good reason. Today, there are probably hundreds of cleanses on the market, but most only focus on one issue, ie colon cleanse. They do not address the mind, body, and spirit collectively. What affects one, influences the other. Plus a two or three day cleanse is not going to cut it either. I recently came across the Total Life Cleanse book, it offers a program that guides you through 28 – days of detoxing and nourishing the body, mind, and spirit. How we eat, think, and live impacts our bodies significantly.
Total Life Cleanse
The Total Cleanse book is broken up into two sections and four cycles. The first section lays the groundwork for cleansing so you are well prepared for the 28 days ahead. This program has combined the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, yoga along with naturopathic fundamentals and contemporary nutritional science.

It’s no secret that the biggest culprit that affects our body, mind, and spirit is the food we ingest but other factors are involved. One’s that you may not have thought of, but they have a big influence on how we heal. Here are some focal points from some of the chapters.
Chapter 1: Essentials of Cleansing – Lists the organs of detoxification, what we’ll experience after a balanced cleanse, names the 14 bodily urges and if suppressed or unnaturally forced will lead to disease, and soul healing.

Chapter 2 & 3 talk about being stressed, starved and poisoned with the combination being detrimental to our health. Our current demanding lifestyle causes daily stress, were starved of vital nutrients from food and the amount of toxin our bodies have to cope with and expel is enormous. The six stressors are mental, dietary, immune, chemicals, heavy metal and scars. Toxins are in the air, water, soil, food, personal care products, and EMF’s.
Chapter 4 shares the fundamental needs of all cells. This includes several superfoods – Air, water, fat and fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, fiber, phytonutrients, and probiotics.
Chapter 6 dives into the benefits of a plant-based diet including a reduction in obesity, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, lung and colorectal cancer, and kidney disease. It also addresses the ethical factors and appalling treatment of animals.
Chapter 7 deals with Conscious Eating and the Eight Principles of Right Eating. There are lots of people addicted to food and how the 9 practices of conscious eating can help us rewire our habits. The eight principles are based on ancient ayurvedic dietary recommendations which include Right timing, Right regularity, Right Awareness, Right Quality, Right Quantity, Right effect, Right variety of tastes and colors, and Right food combining.
Chapter 10 will introduce you to Subtle Toxins, 3 Poisons, and 2 Faults. Subtle toxins are the mental/emotional states that interfere with our natural loving tendency and the strength of our immune system.
Chapters 11 to 13 focus on Koshas and Ayurveda and the 8 elements. Elements include 5 material elements – earth, water, fire, air, and the ethers. 3 subtle elements include the mind, ego, and intelligence. Cleansing through each element is covered as well.
Chapter 14 covers the Chinese Five Elements and how it’s nature-based wisdom is practical, profound, and incorporated into the Total Life Cleanse.
Chapter 17 talks about Karma, Reincarnation, and the Karma Cleanse. The ancient Vedic sages explored how our present actions and lifestyle choices affect not only this life but can be influenced by past lives. We can carry bad habits life after life until we detox them through the Karma Cleanse.
The rest of the book is the cleanse itself. Chapter 18 summarizes the cleanse and sets you up for success. You’ll know what to do during each phase of the cleanse. This includes foods to eat and avoid, prayer, affirmations, yoga exercises, rebounding, breathing, and more. The book ends with the healing recipes you will be making during the cleanse.
If you’re looking to cleanse yourself from the inside out mentally, physically, and spiritually, then the Total Life Cleanse will walk you through all the needed steps. It’s so in-depth and covers all areas that can hinder healing. It also shares how to get past them and enjoy vibrant health.
