After the Cleanse
Following your cleanse, here are some things to keep in mind:
Begin to increase your selection and amounts of solid foods. A great interim meal suggestion is to spread a slice of whole-grain pita with 1 tablespoon of hummus, and top with ½ can of mashed sardines in olive oil or tomato sauce.
Always make sure your system has important probiotics and prebiotics. Dairy sources include yogurt, kefir, and cottage cheese. Nondairy sources include tofu, soy yogurt, miso, tempeh, and sauerkraut.
Keep your drinking/flushing habits alive with herbal teas and water.
Do some exercise — both cardio and strength training. Aim for four times a week, and walk every day. Dermatologists recommend exercise as a means to a better complexion. Exercise can even control breakouts, because sweating can help unclog pores. Exercise reduces stress, which tends to lessen hormone output, which can help control skin flare-ups — and is even good for hair.
Stretching is important. It increases oxygen and blood flow, and decreases stress.
Remember that there are many, many wonderful and nutritious foods you can choose from that will help your skin to achieve and maintain the clarity you want and keep your nails in top condition. Using a wide variety of foods in your everyday diet is the best way to make the most of what the earth has to offer.
By exercising and making the right food choices you can keep yourself healthy and strong inside and out!
