I’m asked quite often about cleanses, and if they can heal health conditions, illnesses, and diseases. I think cleanses are great at kick starting a healthy diet and giving someone a good break from foods that are causing inflammation, imbalances, and disease in the body. But I don’t think a short term cleanse will heal anyone unless they make permanent changes to their diet and lifestyle after the cleanse, and figure out what might be contributing to the problem to begin with.
I get a lot of emails from people describing their health conditions and illnesses and asking me if they change their diet, will it cure the health condition? As much as I would love to give an answer, I can’t! Sometimes changing one’s diet can cure an illness or disease, sometimes alone it can’t! One thing I do know is if you start eating healthy you will make your body stronger and support it’s healing process. Whether you need to incorporate another healing modality (perhaps holistic medicine or conventional allopathic medicine, or both), is an individual thing, and it really depends on the health condition and the person’s health and body. No matter what, you will benefit from eating healthy and it’s worth every effort!
