Cleansing For Good Health

By Angie Lewis

It is important that we take good care of our physical health for overall fitness and well-being, and that includes are spiritual and mental health as well. When we think of overall health we must connect mind, body, and spirit together and then we get a multifaceted system. The three main elements of who we are, mind, body, and soul, work together and support one another in this system.

God has intricately and meticulously created us so that the three elements that make up who we are work together to bring balance and tranquility into our lives. We have a body with skeletal support so we can move around and go where we need to go. We have an intelligent mind for making choices in life and for supporting our basic needs of life. And we have a spirit that gives us character, personality and the ability to love.

When we become physically ill and run down what happens to our body mentally, spiritually, and emotionally? We feel awful everywhere, don’t we? All we want is to feel better fast so we can get back to our old self again. But some of us never go back to feeling quite as good as before, and that is because our physical health is actually not that good. We feel physically run down and emotionally drained and mentally not quite as alert as we should be.

The sad part is many of us use up all of our valuable energy and time trying to figure out what is wrong with our bodies and why we are getting sick. Why do we feel depressed? Why do we have bipolar syndrome? Why does the doctor tell us we have Attention Deficient Disorder? Why do I have irritable bowel syndrome. We run from doctor to doctor, we take numerous different medications for numerous different ailments and yet we are still slowly declining. What is wrong with our body, mind, and spirit?

We need to cleanse out our physical system by eliminating toxins that have built up over time in our bodies. Medications only mask the systems of attention deficient disorder, bipolar, and irritable bowel syndrome making us think we are getting better, but in fact our body is getting more toxic from all the medications! We aren’t going to the root of the problem. It’s like taking an aspirin for a headache. Your headache is still there, but the painkiller has masked the pain and ache so you feel better.

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred and you are that temple.
I Corinthians 3:17

Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, and we need to cleanse the inside of our temples, as well as the outside. If you want to feel better without having to run from doctor to doctor I suggest cleansing the body of its impurities. There are many different kinds of cleanses on the market that can make you feel better but the most important cleanse of them all is the colon cleanse. The reason why is “we really are what we eat” .

Modern day diets have literally clogged our intestines and that makes it difficult for our bodies to assimilate vitamins from the foods we eat through our intestines and into the blood – no wonder we are ailing physically. There is just so much damage that our bodies can take until finally it starts fighting back! It can’t take the constant beating anymore.

When our bowels are clean so is our blood. Our intestines are a transfer station for the bloodstream. When the intestinal walls are clogged with hardened fecal matter nutrients and wastes cannot be transferred efficiently and that’s why we get sick. We absolutely need to cleanse the intestines so we can get rid of all these toxins that have built up over the years.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood.
Leviticus 17:11

I highly recommend the psyllium husk cleanse because I know it works. It is a three-month cleanse that is simple and easy to do. I have done the husk cleanse four times and am now on my second day on this cleanse for the fifth time. I try and do the cleanse every two years as a general maintenance program because I feel great physically, mentally, spiritually when I have cleansed my body.

Be sure and only buy the 100% whole psyllium husk, with no additives. You can buy it online or at any health food store. The Intestinal cleanse is effective at relieving these afflictions: constipation, chronic fatigue, asthma, flu and colds, allergies, nagging backaches, respiratory disorders, digestive problems such as gas, indigestion, and abdominal pain; prostrate problems, menstrual troubles, headaches, and skin eruptions.
