It's Time For A Cleanse!

January 01, 2023

Many herbalists recommend cleansing four times a year, specifically at the change of the seasons.

Cleansing is a good way to mark the transition from one time of year to another…a time to go inward, do some self-care, let go of the old and be open to the new.

If you’re feeling a little nervous at the mention of word “cleanse,” don’t be. The kind of cleanse we have in mind doesn’t involve starving, ingesting any mysterious substances, or spending hours in the bathroom. Who has time for that? Spoiler alert: No one.

This cleanse is simply a gentle reset for your digestive system. Just follow three simple steps.

  1. Yes, you can eat! We’re cleansing, not fasting. Stick to easy-to-digest foods like whole grains (including oatmeal), steamed and pureed vegetables, whole fruit, smoothies, soups, nuts, seeds, eggs, wild salmon and lentils. Eat as much as you need to feel satisfied, and avoid white flour, sugar, and processed foods.
  1. Water or warm green tea are the best choices. You’ll want to drink a little more than usual — 10 cups a day is perfect. That will help your kidneys flush waste products from your system. You’ll need to go to the bathroom more often than usual, but there shouldn’t be any urgency. Take a break from any alcoholic, sweetened, or caffeinated beverages.
  1. Flora offers several products that can support you while you do a cleanse. For a simple cleanse, take Flor Essence on an empty stomach every morning and evening for a week.

What is Flor Essence? 

The highly rated Flor-Essence is a cleansing liquid that gently enhances your body’s natural digestion and elimination processes, while also providing antioxidant protection In fact, it’s so gentle it can safely be used every day.
