Lifestyle Cleanse – Gut Instinct

Lifestyle Cleanse – Gut instinct

Gut reaction, gut feeling, beer gut (hhhmmmm beer), gut job (that means a house that will most probably need gutting!) and gut rot. Gut is not a very nice word is it? It is not melodic or tuneful, it is not even onomatopoeic (which I think is a lovely word and it does exactly as it says on the tin. If you are not too sure what I am banging on about look up the meaning of onomatopoeic). However gut is a ‘great’ word if you are German!

As unpleasant as the word may sound, guts have the ability to make us feel wonderful, on top of the world, light, airy and joyous. They also have the ability to make us feel down, sad, gloomy, blue and really quite ill in some cases. I don’t mean because of too much hair, an unsightly mole or a now faded, totally obscure tattoo we got when we went to Faliraki decades ago. I mean what is inside us, our real guts; our intestines, our colons.

Our guts, our moods and our health and more interwoven than a Chinese knot! The delicate balance is intrinsically linked to the strength of our immune systems and the state of our emotions. Healthy human beans (Roald Dhal’s ‘BFG’ tribute there) have roughly 100 trillion organisms living within our 5-6 foot long colon, if we scrunched them all together they would be roughly the size of a football (pleasant thought isn’t it!). This natural gut flora, as it is known, assists with digestion and the absorption and metabolism of vitamins. It plays a vital role in the formation and regulation of our immune systems, of which 80% is connected to our guts. Changes to the flora can result in a compromised immune system, food intolerances and allergies, inflammatory illnesses (arthritis, cystitis, gastritis, colitis), skin conditions (eczema and psoriasis), fungal infections (athletes foot and thrush) as well as headaches and migraines!

New research from the University of Southern California suggests that fasting has the ability to regenerate the whole immune system. The trial asked humans (no animals were harmed in this experiment) to fast regularly between 2 and 4 days over a 6 month period. This prolonged fasting forces the body to use its stores of fat and glucose, whilst breaking down a significant portion of white blood cells. It is this depletion of white blood cells that trigger stem cell- based regeneration of new immune system cells.

White blood cells are possibly the most important part of our immune systems. Also known as immune cells or leukocytes, white blood cells and are found in our blood and are made up of a large collection of other cells that help the body defend itself against infections and bacteria.

This research is hugely exciting for patients who are on seriously strong medication like Chemotherapy, whose immune systems are heavily compromised. There is a real chance of building their strength and health back up to a level that has not previously been possible. To read more about this research please click here –


However, there are a number of potential risks to fasting completely, we would always advise that a true fast is done under careful medical supervision. Here at Bodyworks we suggest our patients should take on board some form of nutrition during their fast, ideally in the form of juices and vegetable juices in particular.

A 2013 report from the WHO (no, not Roger Daltry’s lot, the World Health Organisation) states that “this year more than 36 million people will die from degenerative conditions – more than from all other causes put together.” These conditions include kidney and liver disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, asthma, skin conditions and allergies plus many, many more.

Jason Vale (also known as the Juice Master, I didn’t even make that one up either!) took 8 individuals who had 22 different chronic diseases (from the list above) between them and put them on his juice fasting diet for 28 days. The results are simply staggering, click on this link to view the video and the 8 individuals journey and results –

Fasting, and in particular juice fasting has many far reaching benefits, not only for those of us with serious health conditions but for those of us who don’t, those of us who want to take an active role in our health and wellbeing and those of us who want to invest in our future.

Our lifestyle cleanses go a step further than regular juice fasting and include a number of natural products that will help to eliminate waste from the body, further enhancing the cleansing process, these include cleansing drinks (which fill you up and draw waste into it) and alkalizing supplements (greens capsules with Beta-Carotene, B12, Chlorophyll, GLA and SOD).
