Environmental pollution, less-than-ideal food choices and allergies are just some of the reasons why regular cleansing can be a good idea in our modern world.

Cleansing can be either undertaken at specific times, or can be completed gently on a daily basis to balance out exposure to undesirable foods or compounds (e.g. chemicals, pollution).
