CLEANSE GUIDELINES + TIPS
There are many ways to do a juice cleanse, we have found a formula that works amazing for us and our clients. Below we'll share our secrets to cleansing success.
EAT MAINLY PLANTS
We recommend spending these days prior to your cleanse eating a plant-centric diet that is predominately raw. Smoothies, bended soups, salads, juices and lots of water will make sure that your cleanse is enjoyable as well as effective.
ELIMANATE THE BADS
Sugar, caffeine, nicotine, processed foods, flour, grains, diary... these all can keep our body from functioning at a super high level. By eliminating these foods, your body will have an easier time with the cleanse and you will have less cleansing symptoms (headache, foggy)
The first day of your cleanse your body will be in serious detox mode! Every juice you drink will aid your body in the riddance and expulsion of toxic fats, chemicals and toxins that have been building up. You’re being filled with live organic goodness and your organs and entire system are soaking it all up. This is an amazing time for your body, but can also bring up some detoxification symptoms in both body and mind.
Here are some things you can do to help manage any symptoms that may be uncomfortable:
DRINK ALL YOUR JUICE
We strongly urge you to drink all of your juices everyday, either at a constant steady pace or by setting an alarm to have a juice at least every two hours.
DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND HERBAL TEA
staying hydrated and filling up with warm liquid is helpful when cleansing. This helps the body loosen up and let go of toxins.
KEEP COZY + WARM
It’s a good idea to stay warm, as you may feel colder while cleansing. Be sure to bundle up or take a warm bath if you are feel chilly!
REST + RELAX
Give yourself the gift of total regeneration on all levels. By resting you support all the work your body is doing. Listen to your body. If you feel tired, take it easy and remember that this is ultimately going to help you feel better.
After your cleanse, it’s important to take it easy. Be very aware of your diet at this point. Breaking your cleanse gently with raw foods is the best option. Fruit, salads, smoothies… much like the three days before your juice fast. Beware of how lively and light you feel! This is the power of a proper detox.
KEEP IT UP
Once you have finished your first juice fast, it is great to support your body by doing one day a week of juice and liquids as a maintenance. Otherwise we suggest juice fasting every 3 to 6 months.
