Do we really need an internal cleanse?

Dr. Michael Murray, one of the world's leading authorities on natural medicine, and Chief Science Officer of Enzymedica has much to say about the benefits of cleansing. Here are his views on the question, "do we really need an internal cleanse?"


It is important because it is becoming increasingly clear that the biggest threat to human health right now is not some super virus or even the overconsumption of sugar, but rather the growing exposure to environmental toxins. Since we as humans are at the top of the food chain, we are bioaccumulators of toxins like pesticides, herbicides, flame retardants, solvents, and the thousands of man-made chemicals that have been developed over the last 70 years. These sorts of toxins are extremely hard for the environment as well as our body to get rid of. So, yes, it is very important to go on an internal cleanse.

Here are 5 key reasons to cleanse:

  • It fights the aging process. The bioaccumulation of toxins increases as the older we get. Not surprisingly, we are reaping the consequences of this bioaccumulation. In fact, since toxins damage basic cellular function, they adversely affect every cell, tissue, organ, and body system. It is now undeniable that toxins play a key role in destroying our health.
  • It increases energy levels. The ability to detoxify is critically tied to our energy levels. If you drag through the day, promoting improved detoxification can really boost energy levels.
  • It amplifies brain power. The brain is very sensitive to toxin load. When toxin levels are high the brain will short-circuit making it hard to maintain concentration and focus, remember things, and solve problems.
  • It tunes up the immune system. If you get more than one or two colds a year, or if a cold seems to drag on and on, or you just seem to get one infection after another, it could be a sign that your immune system is being impaired due to an overload of toxins. A cleanse can help eliminate an obstacle to healthy immune function.
  • It makes you shine! The skin is the largest organ of the body and plays a key role in the elimination of some types of toxins. A cleanse generally has a phenomenal effect in promoting beauty from within. Clear, vibrant, radiant skin is a sign of health and internal purity.

One of the challenges with dealing with toxins is that they can actually impair your ability to detoxify. In other words, the toxins seem to hit your detoxification system first. So, it is important to devote some focus and effort in supporting this incredible system. One of the best ways to show that focus is doing the Purify 10-Day Complete Body Cleanse.

Designed to be used with critical dietary guidelines aiding our detoxification system, the individual components of the AM and PM packets in the 10-day cleanse work together to tune-up the detoxification system to promote effective processing and elimination of toxins.



10-DAY Complete Body Cleanse

Purify™ Complete Body Cleanse offers an advanced, “whole body” approach to natural cleansing and detoxification.

Easy to use morning and evening packets eliminate unnecessary complexity and contain all the capsules needed for an ideal 10-day cleanse.

This comprehensive program is designed to accomplish specific tasks in the detoxification and elimination of waste, toxins and other foreign material.

The morning cleanse contains powerful formulas for detoxification, while the evening cleanse offers gentle and effective support for elimination and regularity.

Once toxins are released, it is crucial that they be eliminated from the body quickly, and Purify supports this over a 10-day period, preventing those toxins from being redeposited elsewhere in the body, which can be a challenge common to other cleanse programs.
