Before Your Cleanse

Proper cleanse preparation will set you and your body up to not only get through your cleanse, but to reap optimal benefits a cleanse has to offer.  Adopting a few healthy habits at least three days leading up to your cleanse will allow your body to succeed in efficiently processing and absorbing the abundance of nutrients from the cleanse juices, ultimately releasing built-up toxins, leaving your body and mind with a clean slate and a healthier mentality.

 

Morning Lemon Water and Apple Cider Vinegar:

To help purify your body before your cleanse arrives, begin each day with a glass of warm water with lemon juice and Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. This will jump start the detoxification process and alkalize the body.

 

Hydration:

Make an extra effort to hydrate throughout your day with plenty of water. This helps your body more easily flush toxins, combats tiredness, and decreases cravings.

 

Nutrition:

To gracefully wean your body into consuming a raw juice diet, we recommend you take at least 3 days prior to your cleanse to cut out unnecessary and processed foods, and increase consumption of fresh and whole foods (reference the lists below):

 

Minimize and Eliminate the Following:

-Processed Foods

-Caffeine

-Alcohol, Nicotine, etc.

-Sugar

-Gluten/wheat

-Dairy

-Meat

 

These might sound like tough sacrifices to make, but it is necessary, and your body will thank you for it when you are done! There are still plenty of delicious and cleanse-appropriate foods you are encouraged to eat:

 

Maximize the Following:

-Whole Foods

-Raw Produce

-Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

-Fresh Salads (try Apple Cider Vinegar based Dressing!)

-Smoothies (Veggie and Fruit based)

-Veggie soups

-Fresh Juices

-Raw Seeds and nuts

-Whole grains like quinoa

-Superfoods! Chia seeds, Acai & Goji Berries, Maca, Spirulina, Wheatgrass, Hemp seeds, etc.

During Your Cleanse

The six daily juices in your cleanse are each labeled numerically according to the order in which you are supposed to drink them. You will drink #1 first in the morning, and you will drink #6 last in the evening - we recommend you consume #6 at least 2 hours before bed to allow your body time to digest. Most people drink their juices in intervals of about 2 hours throughout the day. However, everyone’s body is different and it is important that you do what your body tells you. If you are ready for your next drink a little sooner, then go ahead. If you are not hungry for your next juice, then hold off. If you lead a very active life and need an extra juice or 2 each day, absolutely add them! Juice Cleansing is not about deprivation. Your body will tell you what it needs.

 

Morning Lemon Water and Apple Cider Vinegar:

Start your day with a cup of warm water with lemon juice and a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar. This will help alkalize your body and get the digestive and detox processes started. As soon as your body is ready for something more, start with your first juice.

 

Hydration:

Make an extra effort to hydrate throughout your day with plenty of water in addition to your juices. This helps your body more easily flush toxins, combats tiredness, and decreases cravings.

 

Commit to the Juices:

Aside from lots of water and herbal decaffeinated tea, it is recommended that you consume only the juices in your cleanse. This ensures that your cleansing experience is as enjoyable and effective as possible. It is especially essential to avoid alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, processed foods, meats, grains, and dairy. If your body is telling you that it absolutely needs to eat something, we encourage you to stick with fresh produce, seeds, and nuts.

 

Enhance Your Experience:

In addition to drinking your juices, there are many things you can do to optimize your cleanse experience:

 

- Staying hydrated (with water and herbal decaf tea)

 

- Plenty of sleep (stay rested, allow yourself to relax)

 

- Sweating  (exercise, sauna, steam, bath, etc.)

- Massage (increase circulation, toxin release)

- Eliminate yourself whenever needed

 

- Timing (plan your cleanse when you won't be surrounded by temptation - do it with a friend or coworker!)

 

- Coconut Oil (for skin, hair, and oil pulling, and more!)

 

- Eliminate any chemicals from your life (use natural & organic household and beauty products, etc.)

 

- Activated Charcoal (consume for toxin removal, or brush with it for whiter teeth!)

 

- Get fresh air, have fun, smile, and stay positive!

 

Symptoms:

Some people experience detox symptoms which could include headaches, fatigue, etc. Typically, these symptoms gradually disappear as your body adjusts to the cleanse. Every person’s body reacts differently to the cleanse process. Some people experience a variety of symptoms, while others aren’t affected at all.

 

After Your Cleanse

Finishing a cleanse is extremely rewarding, both mentally and physically! After all of the work and dedication it took for you to succeed in your cleanse, wouldn’t it be great to maintain this new and healthier you? Transitioning out of your cleanse is very similar to preparing to begin a cleanse. It is important to take several days to ease back into eating food, and to follow the same principals you followed leading up to your cleanse.

  

Morning Lemon Water and Apple Cider Vinegar:

To help purify your body, begin each day with a glass of warm water with lemon juice. Add a tablespoon or two of Apple Cider Vinegar. This will jump start the detoxification process and alkalize the body.

 

Hydration:

Make an extra effort to hydrate throughout your day with plenty of water. This helps your body more easily flush toxins, combats tiredness, and decreases cravings.

 

Nutrition: 

Throughout your cleanse, your digestive tract was resting. It is important to take a few days to gradually wean it back into full function. We recommend introducing gentler, more readily digestible meals such as salads, smoothies, soups, and juices. Post-cleanse food suggestions are almost exactly the same as pre-cleanse suggestions:

 

Minimize or Eliminate the Following:

-Processed Foods

-Caffeine

-Alcohol, Nicotine, etc.

-Sugar

-Gluten/wheat

-Dairy

-Meat 

 

Maximize the Following:

-Whole Foods

-Raw Produce

-Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

-Fresh Salads (try Apple Cider Vinegar based Dressing!)

-Smoothies (Veggie and Fruit based)

-Veggie soups

-Fresh Juices

-Raw Seeds and nuts

CLEANSE FAQ

Q. What exactly is a juice cleanse?

A. A juice cleanse is a period typically from 1-5 days (many people choose to go longer), where you commit to solely consuming raw fruit and vegetable juices, to allow your body to rest, release toxins, and restore nutrients. Our cleanse contains six (6) 16oz juices per day.

 

Each individual person should determine the quantity of juice and duration of the cleanse that fits their body and lifestyle. A "cleanse" can range from simply replacing one meal a day with a juice, to consuming solely juice for one or more days (typically 1-5 days). You must decide what is most beneficial for you. Sometimes just a juice a day is a good way to ween yourself into a full juice cleanse.

 

A juice cleanse gives your body a hiatus from the task of digesting food and fiber, which allows it to focus and prioritize its energy on absorbing the nutrients necessary for achieving and maintaining optimal health, while simultaneously purging toxins that have accumulated over time. By substituting your fiber intake with pure fruit and vegetable juice, your body is able to more readily assimilate all of the available nutrients and enzymes. This means that enzymes that are usually being used up by the process of digestion are now free to engage in other metabolic processes, giving your energy and immune system a boost. Imagine it as if you're giving your body a chance at a clean slate.

Q. Should I consume the juices in a certain order?

A. Yes. The order in which you drink your juices affects how you absorb and use the nutrients. For instance, we put our Green Juice, "Green Mountain Medley" as the first juice in the cleanse because it contains a good amount of lemon, and is the first thing you put into your body. The suggested consumption order for each cleanse can be found at the top of our Cleansing Instructions page.

 

Q. Will I be hungry on a juice cleanse?

A. Many people do feel hunger pangs, especially during the first couple of days as your body adjusts to consuming only liquids. This should improve as your body acclimates. Everyone's body has different needs, so do what is right for you. If you need to chew/eat something, just make sure it is a raw fruit or vegetable, such as an apple.

 

Q. How do I prepare for a cleanse?

A. Click here to read about cleansing instructions! In short, we recommend that you eliminate alcohol, caffeine, processed foods, gluten, salty snacks, and refined sugar at least a couple days before the cleanse, and instead consume lots of fresh produce. This will allow for maximum results and an easy transition onto and off of your cleanse.

 

Q. Will I experience any cleansing side effects?

A. Some people have been known to experience a variety of symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, or mood swings,  especially within the first 3 days. Just make sure you continue to drink lots of water and get a good night's rest.

 

Q. Can I cleanse if I am pregnant or nursing?

A. It is not recommended that pregnant or nursing women do a cleanse, however supplementing your intake with our individual juices should be okay. Please consult your doctor first.

 

Q. Can I exercise while cleansing?

A. Yes, light exercising is encouraged as a way to maximize the detoxification process. Just keep in mind that heavy exercise may require you to consume extra juice to account for the calories lost while exercising.

 

Q. Is it useful to do a cleanse for just one day?

A. Yes! One day can be very helpful, which is why we offer a one-day cleanse.  Adding fresh, raw vegetables and fruits to your diet is always beneficial, even if it is only in the form of a 24 hour cleanse. Conquering a 1-day cleanse makes you feel good and builds your confidence...it may even encourage you to try a slightly longer cleanse the next time! Click here to see our cleanse options!

 

Q. Is there anything else I can drink during a cleanse? Seltzer? Tea?

A. While we recommend exclusively consuming fresh vegetable and fruit juices along with lots of water, we know that it isn't always 100% realistic. So, if you need a little something, the best option would be a decaf herbal tea, and plain seltzer with no additives. 

 

Q. What do I eat when I finish my cleanse?

A. Click here for in-depth cleanse instructions! To help wean your body back onto solid food and reap the maximum benefits of all the amazing work you just did in your cleanse, your first meals should be light. This would include meals like smoothies, soups, or salads. Continue to consume whole, healthy foods. Incorporate proteins and fats one at a time and gradually. You don't want to startle your digestive tract, you want to ease it back into full function.
