When you hear the word, “inflammation” what comes to mind? You probably think it’s something bad. Well, I’m here to tell you inflammation is great! Wait … what? That’s right, you see, you need a little inflammation in your body.
The inflammation process helps get rid of nasty germs. It also heals injuries. Any time you burn your skin or have some other physical trauma, inflammation comes to the rescue. Your white blood cells, which kick in to fight infections are part of the inflammation process. So, you see, inflammation ain’t so bad….
When you’re healthy, inflammation does a delicate dance. It stays in control, out of sight and mind.
But if you party like a rock star, don’t exercise and eat like crap, here’s what happens….
Certain substances that are in the cells of your immune system and are involved in the inflammation process go crazy. That, of course, isn’t the official scientific explanation. But essentially what happens is, as with the case in autoimmune disease, the inflammation response becomes excessive. And that’s where my two powerful inflammation fighters come into play: a 21 day Detox, and the use of CBD oil – and CBD oil is getting easier to find across the USA.
Symptoms of Inflammation
So how do you know if you have inflammation? And what can you do about it? Well, let’s answer the first question.
Beyond the obvious signs of inflammation such as swollen joints or red skin from an injury, here are some signs you may have excessive inflammation:
- Constantly tired
- Getting sick often
- Gaining weight easily and having trouble losing it
- Digestive issues
- Skin breakouts
- Trouble concentrating (brain fog)
Can you relate to any of these issues? Let’s say you get headaches and acne breakouts from time to time. Sure, you could pop an over-the-counter pain-reliever and use an acne remedy. Problem solved, right? Well, for now, maybe. But putting a “band-aid” on inflammation (no pun intended) does not solve the root cause of inflammation.
But I’m about to share with you 2 things that will greatly reduce it and put your body back in balance….
21 Day Detox for Excess Inflammation
If you’ve legitimately eating healthy (by that I mean eating minimally-processed-at-most organic plant-based food 90% of the time), and you exercise, and don’t use harsh chemical cleaners at home yet you still have some signs of inflammation, I recommend seeing a functional medicine doctor.
But for most people, excess inflammation is caused by lifestyle factors. Needless to say, diet is a big one.
And sometimes, it’s not just enough to say to people, “eat a healthy diet.”
Sometimes, you just need somebody to hold your hand.
That’s where I come in.
With a background as a certified nutritional therapist, I created the recipe for my Organic Green Drink. Since then, I’ve created recipes for a plant-based Protein Shake and Detox Soups. These 3 items form the core of my Cleanse and Detox programs.
Now, I’m not just trying to sell you on stuff I sell. My intention is to reset your body, correct excessive inflammation and provide you with the lifestyle education you need to keep eating healthy long after you’re done with my cleanse and detox program.
So if you’re ready to dramatically lower your body’s inflammation response, I suggest trying my 21 Day Detox.
The 21 Day Detox combines my 3 Day Cleanse and Healthy Eating recommendations. There’s 3 different plans to choose from: Starter, Classic, Obsessive. The Starter Detox features one 3-Day Cleanse. The Classic has two different stretches of doing the 3 Day Cleanse and the Obsessive has three. For each day during the 3 Day Cleanse phase, here’s what you’ll get these powerful inflammation fighters:
- Four 16-oz servings of Organic Green Drink
- 2 packets of Chocolate Vegan Protein Shake
- 1 container of Detox Soup (either Sweet Potato Curry or Ginger Carrot Zing)
For the rest of the time you’re doing the 21 day detox, you’ll get a 16oz Green Drink and Protein Shake each day. I recommend having those two for breakfast. Then, you have lunch and dinner. I provide you with a meal planner, as well as a Healthy Eating Guide, which includes a “Eat This, Not That” easy-to-follow chart, and a Healthy Portions chart.
We deliver the Green Drinks, Protein Shakes and Detox Soups right to your front door. And you’ll get my healthy eating advice emailed as soon as you order.
If you’re suffering from excessive inflammation, doing a 21 Day Detox could finally provide the relief you’re looking for.
And not only that, it will educate and inspire you to stick with healthy eating habits long after the 3 weeks are over.
CBD for Inflammation? Research Says Yes!
In addition to a 21 Day Detox, I’m also recommending looking into CBD if you have excess inflammation.
I have to admit that I have yet to jump on the CBD bandwagon. But according to the preliminary research I’ve read about it, I’m impressed. I previously wrote about it’s possible benefits for weight loss here. I do practice what I preach and I credit yoga and eating a nutrient-dense diet to keeping my inflammation levels in check.
Still, running a business can be stressful. And, of course, stress can lead to inflammation. That’s why I am CBD-curious.
And it seems like CBD works remarkably well for excess inflammation.
The reason why is it triggers unhealthy cells (like cancerous ones) to die. CBD also prevents harmful cells from replicating. And, another thing CBD does is keep in check the production of substances that trigger the inflammation process.
If you have irritable bowel syndrome or a related gastrointestinal disorder, you may want to give CBD oil a try. That’s because research shows the compounds in CBD calms tissue inflammation in the colon. It does this by weakening smooth-muscle tissue irritation.
I realize that recommending a 21 Day Detox and CBD oil isn’t the advice your doctor would give. But if everybody drank Green Drinks every day and ate a clean diet, and kept inflammation in check with CBD oil, many doctors would go out of business.
To your health,
