A 28 Day Detox Diet PlanAnthony William Explains The Importance Of Detoxing
Day in and day out, all of our body systems—ones like the lymphatic, endocrine, and central nervous systems—are working for us without complaint. The immune system is constantly ready for battle, patrolling every part of the body looking for invaders.
We take all this for granted. We eat things our systems don’t appreciate, indulge in foods to comfort our emotions rather than feed our bodies and souls. As we seek out snacks, meals, beverages, and desserts that keep emotions at bay, our bodies become the victims of our soul damage. We get confused and cross the line between what we like to eat and what our bodies need.

Eventually, the physical body begins to show wear and tear. It starts with small breakdowns, then the larger breakdowns come. Imagine a car running low on oil. For a while you can get by on fumes, but at some point the oil will get too low. You’ll turn on the car, the engine will heat up, cause friction, and bang—you’ll blow a valve.
The human body is forever forgiving. Your body wants to heal. It can heal. Even after years of being ignored, mistreated, or misunderstood, your body will fight for you like nothing else and no one else can. When you tend to it in the right way, your body has the ability to rejuvenate and restore from the most extreme conditions and diseases.
When we connect to our bodies, truly listen to them, and give them the nourishment they’re yearning for, everything changes. True miracles happen.
Many of us grow up in this world with our pick of almost anything to eat. This can be a hard mindset to change. Our food routines can feel like part of who we are. Hidden addictions and unproductive choices often go into them, though.
We all have cravings. It’s important not to confuse these cravings with intuition. We may feel a strong desire to eat certain foods and mistake that desire for our bodies telling us we need that bacon cheeseburger, or that omelet.
Yet when people eat anything and everything under the sun, subjecting the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, heart, and more to greasy, dangerous, processed, fried-oil, gastronomic concoctions, it’s because the soul and body are out of alignment. That happens because the hardships we encounter on this earth can damage our souls. We search for ways to literally fill the void with food, or to push down unpleasant emotions—except it doesn’t work. Eating unproductive foods, we get sicker. Our souls suffer more.
If you are struggling with your health in any way, the game has to change. Eating restorative foods—and eliminating foods that cause problems—is the most critical aspect of healing any illness or health condition.
The healing food plan I present in my book, Medical Medium can move health mountains. It’s like a reset button for your body.
Following a detox plan for just four weeks will help reduce inflammation from many illnesses. It can make a huge difference in mental health. And the cleanse will help if you’re healthy and just looking to lose weight, or if you want to maintain and maximize your potential.
4 Ways To Cleanse
1. Ideal: For four weeks, eat only raw fruits and vegetables.For best results, follow the detox plan for the whole 28 days.
2. While 28 days is the best length of time, even just a week is likely to bring you significant results.
3. Another alternative is one cleanse day per week.
4. On the other hand, if your health is in dire straits, or if you have a lot of weight to lose, you’re welcome to extend the cleanse beyond the first month.
Why It Works
One reason this plan is so effective is that it maximizes the nutrition you get in every meal. Fruits and vegetables in their raw state contain the highest level of nutrients of any foods, in the form most readily available to your body. When you consume these nutrients in such a high quantity, you’ll flood your body with the building blocks it craves. The vitamins, minerals, microorganisms, and other nourishing components will help cleanse and strengthen every system in your body.
The digestive system is one of those beneficiaries. Digestive health has a major impact on immunity and overall health. Normally, digestion takes up an enormous amount of your body’s energy.
It’s almost like your body has a daily to-do list. There are the things it has to attend to every day, like keeping your heart pumping and your lungs inflating and food moving through your intestinal tract. Then there are all the things it wishes it could get to—taking out the toxin trash, repairing critical tissue, and so much more—if only it had the time and support.
Imagine a wobbly doorknob in your house. One of these days, it’s going to fall off, and you’re going to have a real problem. Every day, you mean to fix it, but paying the bills and making food for your family and shoveling fresh snow outside take precedence—plus your screw-driver’s gone missing. Same with the body. When it’s overloaded with tough-to-digest foods and it’s missing critical nutrients, those wish list items just keep getting put off.
The body processes uncooked fruits and vegetables quickly and easily. These foods also have live enzymes, which makes digestion even smoother. When your body’s not busy processing heavy fats and proteins, or additives and allergens, it frees up hours every day for your body to rebuild itself on a cellular level. Note that while meat, fish, grains, and starchy vegetables can have helpful nutrients, they can also be tough for the body to break down.

When our bodies are overloaded by illness or toxicity or even just sluggishness, we lose the ability to process these foods in an optimal way. The plan below gives us the reboot we need to come back to these foods with digestive vigor.
It also helps cleanse and rebuild the soul. As your body re-mineralizes, alkalizes, detoxifies, and mends, your soul learns that powerhouse foods like fruit are the true sustenance that will bring it comfort. When you come out on the other side of the 28 days, foods that you know are detrimental to your health won’t hold the same sway they once did.
Your soul, spirit, and body will also be operating on a new frequency. Each piece of fruit you eat, each raw spinach leaf, holds a living vibration. When you consume it, you assimilate that. The living food brings you back to life.
