Your Body Is A Temple

In the scriptures we are told that our body is like a temple. 


"Know ye not that ye are the
temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" 
(1 Corinthians 3:16).  

If our body is like a "temple", I believe we need to be cleaning it on the inside not only spiritually but physically as well.  

Thankfully we have built in cleaners......our amazing kidneys and liver do an amazing job of cleaning house. But just like an air filter in our home needs to be replaced regularly, and the oil in our cars need to be cleaned, so does our filtering system in the body.  

Since we are surrounded by pollutants and toxins in the environment on a daily basis, it is essential to clean them out regularly.  After many many years of filtering, our system becomes less and less efficient. These toxins need a place to stay since they cannot be filtered out effectively.  Our body is so smart and knows that it needs to keep these toxins away from the vital organs in our body, so it stores them in our fat tissue.  This is one reason why it is hard to lose weight....the body is full of toxins and actually NEEDS, or rather REQUIRES the fat tissue to protect itself.

As a person notices that their jeans are fitting a little more snugly, they go hog wild on a diet and try to lose weight, but their body is already "programmed" to store fat, instead if shred it...in an effort to protect its vital organs.  Isagenix focuses on first removing the toxins.  As the products cleanse the body from the inside, the fat melts off much more effectively and permanently because the body does not have a NEED for the extra fat any longer. In so doing, the metabolism is reset and energy and vitality return.

In my study on nutrition and the Gospel throughout the years, I have found great strength from doing my Isagenix cleanse days on Sunday.  I try to do this so my body can more fully rest.  

As we know, one of the commandments Exodus 20:8-10 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner (MIGHT I ADD……..”OR YOUR LIVER OR DIGESTIVE TRACK”) who is within your gates…”

One labor we are performing on a regular basis, but are hardly aware of, is in digesting food.

For every 100 calories of carbohydrates eaten, 10 is spent in digesting food.  Meat takes the most energy to digest ......20-30% . Fat takes 0-3%.  On your cleanse days, the body is given a major rest from digesting so it can use this energy to cleanse the impurities and toxins from the body and recharge the liver and kidneys.  

One product that you are using throughout your program is called "Cleanse for life".



This stuff is frigg'in awesome!!  It helps the liver produce more bile so it can work more effectively.  It gives your body the nutrition it needs to cleanse itself naturally, and unlike other “cleanses,” laxatives or diuretics that can deplete your body, Cleanse For Life nourishes and feeds your whole body with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals.

Remember there are a few requirements for cleanse day, but lets make it really simple.  You need to drink 4 ounces of "Cleanse for life" every 4 hours.  In between there, you need to consume something hourly, to feel best and to stabilize blood sugar!  You can take any of the following items:

Isa-greens
Isa-fruits
Isa-snacks
E+ shots (2 times a day)
Isadelights (4 a day)
Replenish
T+Chai
Ionix Supreme




For extra blessings, do it on a Sunday!  (:
