If you score less then 10. This is a great sign! Chances are you have already started to live a cleansing lifestyle. Keep up the good work and cleanse daily to avoid the everyday toxins that we can't avoid.
If you said yes to 11-24 of the questions: Defiantly room for improvement. Your exposure to toxins is high and you are suffering from the toxins you are exposed to on a daily basis. You need to examine the things in your life that you can control and reduce the toxins around you. A 30 day deep cleanse if you do not have any excess weight to lose will help you release the toxins from your body. Following up with monthly deep cleansing for at least 1 or 2 days will help keep the toxins from leading to health issues. If you have weight to loss, back to back 30 day cleanses until you have reached your weight goal will benefit you greatly.
If you said yes to 24+. You are highly toxic! You most likely have daily aches and pains that no matter what you do will not go away. This type of lifestyle will, if it already hasn't, puts you at risk for serious health issues. You need to place yourself on a 30 day cleanse and continue this until you can answer in the other 2 categories preferably the 10 and under.
SOOOOOOOOOOOO the question becomes now what do I do?
No matter your score you NEED to cleanse your body of the toxins going in, and let's face it, if you breath they are going in. You can lesson the amount greatly by eliminating the things on the list above, but we can't walk around in a bubble with purified air all day-although I might be willing to try one day!
Best way to cleanse by far of all the ones I have tried is 100% Isagenix. The proof is in the pudding and the pudding tastes awesome and has such huge results!
