It’s hard to eat right these days and many of the things we eat are just plain bad for our bodies. Sugar is a main culprit and so is gluten, among many other things. Over the years, my body just can’t handle these ingredients. My friend is addicted to sugar so we decided to give our bodies a thorough cleansing. Cleansing is the best way to clean various organs, lose weight, detox your body, improve your complexion, constipation, bloating, and restore your body to perfect health.
Cleansing can give you a chance to get in tune with your body and really get back to basics. To me it was like giving my body a tune up. Out with the old and in with the new, fresh and organic fuel to help my body function better. Cleansing gives you clarity on what your body really needs, not craves.
My friend and I wanted a good inner cleansing so we decided to go with iZO Cleanze because iZO Cleanze offers your body a myriad of essential vitamins and minerals in their most natural and potent state, undamaged by heat due to cooking or pasteurization. Rich in alkaline elements, phytochemicals, and anti-oxidants, the iZO Cleanze helps regenerate the glands and organs associated with digestion so digestive excretions are more vital, muscular action is stronger, and the body’s ability to absorb nutrients is more efficient.
In a typical diet composed of mainly cooked foods the body uses a large amount of energy for digestion, causing one to feel sluggish after a meal. In the absence of solids, the iZO Cleanze components such as iZO jUiCE retain the digestive enzymes that would have normally been gone in digesting and breaking down the tough plant fiber, allowing them instead to work on breaking down old food debris in your digestive tract.
As well, cleansing minimizes food cravings by providing cells and organs with the nutrients necessary for proper cell maintenance, thereby discouraging consumption of ‘empty’ calories and excess food. Better digestion means less stored food debris (often the residue of refined and processed foods such as white flour, white sugar, and hydrogenated fats). A healthy and invigorated metabolism will run more efficiently assisting the body to perform its functions appropriately for optimal health.
The people at iZO Cleanze do all the work for you. They deliver your jars of fresh juice daily in a portable cooler. All you do is pick up your fresh jars of juice at your front door step (or designated area to pick up jars) drink them according to your schedule and then put them back on the front door step. And repeat each morning.
It was nice to know my menu for the week. iZO Cleanze™ saved me a lot of time from having to prepare any food for my daily meals or going out spending a lot of money on foods that are refined and not good for me.
Cleansing with a friend is a good thing - we encouraged each other to get through it. He is 6”3 and I’m 5”2. The first day was a little rough for me: I felt a little tired, but my friend felt fine.
The second day was tougher for both of us because we felt hungry and a little irritable. There was a time when we drove in an area with dozens of restaurants and every food in the air was delicious, but we stuck together and didn't give in.
The third day, my friend felt fine, but I felt lethargic. I found out that my body needed more protein, so I called iZO Cleanze™ and they sent me an extra jar of protein and this helped.
The fourth day was better for both of us. My friend had lost eight pounds already and I lost five. My energy level had improved as well.
The last day was downhill and the week was gone.
On the sixth day we were able to eat regular food, the problem was that we went out to a dinner and ate too much ordinary food. Now my friend wasn’t bothered by the food, but gain a couple of pounds. However, my stomach was sick for one week. As per the instructions of iZO Cleanze™, we were supposed to introduce easily digestible food into our bodies. My body knew something was wrong and I paid the price for it.
The lesson to be learned is that if you’re going to cleanse your body, make sure you do it for the right reasons and have a post plan diet so that your body adjust easily to regular foods.

iZO Cleanze™ Tips:
Drink as much water as you want throughout the day, making sure you drink
everything iZO Cleanze™ provides for you. In order for the cleanse to work, it is crucial that you intake ALL of what iZO Cleanze™ provides.
Chew your juice! Also, you may want to pour a little purified water into your juice bottles after you’ve finished the juice in order to get every last drop of juice out! High octane juice water!
One of your drinks is iZO Tea. You may want to energize your iZO Tea in the sun. Leave it out in the sun or in a window to soak up the sun’s energy and light!
Pay attention to what’s happening to your body.
Meditate. Practice watching your breath in the morning before you start your day. Love yourself for doing this for your higher good.
Stay firm to your commitment. Don’t waver and don’t question yourself. You will not only survive this, you will thrive through it. You will truly not need to eat solid foods.
On the other hand, don’t be too hard on yourself. If you slip, just get back up and move forward. Don’t back out or punish yourself for slipping. Just get a glass of juice and get yourself back into the iZO Cleanze™ mentality.
Have a clear exit strategy when finishing the cleanze. You don’t want to go back to your old eating habits. You want to maintain your body’s health, remembering that now it will be more sensitive to toxins than ever before. Talk to the iZO Cleanze™ people about consulting you on your post-cleanze diet.
If you can’t stay on the given schedule, stretch out the schedule for as long as you are going to be up - the time is not as important as the order.
