This Cleanse Is Different
In the spring of 2011 I decided I needed a change. I was working far too much, was no longer working out or eating well, had multiple health problems, was overweight, and just didn’t feel good.
After reading an article in Outside magazine about Dr. Alejandro Junger’s Clean Program, I was intrigued. It didn’t sound like other cleanses I’d heard of, like the South Beach or the Master Cleanse (does that even improve your health? Just seems to make people cranky…;)
No, this cleanse sounded different. It was developed by an actual Western-medicine trained MD (who also had tons of Eastern-medicine experience), and designed to not take over your life. Sounded great to me, so I read the article.
I Quit those inhalers cold turkey – my asthma was gone!
The author was pretty dubious at first – after all, he’s seen more than his fair share of fad diets come and go. But slowly, as he learned more about it and as the days went on, he became completely convinced.
By the end of the article, he mentioned that chronic pain in his back was gone, he no longer needed coffee to get going or a drink after work to relax. His energy levels were way up, and he seemed to have a renewed outlook on life. So I decided I wanted to get in on that.
My Turn to Detox
I read Clean by Dr. Junger (the book that started the whole program), ordered the full detox kit, and gave it a whirl. It was difficult – a bit of a test, really – but in the end the results were nothing short of unbelievable.
I had developed asthma when I was 21 years old, and after buying inhalers every month for the last 8 years, I gave them up. I Quit those inhalers cold turkey – my asthma was gone!
The pain in my knees from old injuries completely disappeared – I could go running without having to ice my knees and take aspirin afterwards, the pain in my lower back was largely better, and my blood-sugar levels were no longer in the “pre-diabetic’ range.
After years and years of “maintaining” my health issues, they were all either gone or much improved. My experience with the Clean Program has been great, and I want to share that with others.
