Cleanse can mean many things to different people. A juice cleanse is NOT a colon cleanse. There WILL NOT be a mass exodus of everything from your body. In fact, you will get constipated if you don't have the correct herbs, teas, and juices to keep things moving NORMALLY. Bathroom visits will be to urinate. We WILL BE flooding our bodies with organic vitamins, minerals and nutrients and giving digestion energy a rest so that our bodies natural ability to DETOX can turn on to high. Fiber is being removed from the juice for a short period of time, 1 day, 3 days, 5 days because that is when "cleansing" happens. Cleansing meaning that toxins are being force from your cells and tissues for elimination through regular means. During a juice cleanse, the body uses energy for healing rather than digesting fiber. We are removing mercury, food additives, excess estrogen, any toxic matter that has been neutralized by our fat cells will be forced out for elimination. Toxins can get lodged in the fatty brain cells causing neurological disturbances. You can be skinny and seemingly healthy and have a fatty liver which affects the performance of all the organs in the body. After a series of "cleanses", or healing periods of rest while focusing on organic nutrition, soups and clean eating included, you will find that aches and PAINS have ceased, headaches and MIGRAINES disappear, ALLERGIES are gone, brain fog has lifted, mood has improved, inflammation in the face and body has dissolved and general wellbeing has been elevated. What you can't see is the reversal of dis-ease in the body that was yet unknown.
I am a planner. I am planning on getting cancer again. To prevent hearing those words, I choose to help my body turn to a high DETOX mode daily. It's a NO-BRAINER to ingest organic, pure forms of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, herbs, superfoods, and spices that have known anti-cancer benefits. Juicing is NOT A WEIGHT LOSS plan. It's a plan to be proactive about your health and wellness. It's a way to keep inflammation at bay. Inflammation is the beginning of dis-ease in the body. Weight loss can be a side effect of juicing and clean eating. Once we remove toxins that have been neutralized by fat, the fat goes too.
The magic number for a juice cleanse is 3 days. This is because it takes 3 days to reset your bodies cravings for sugar and carbs. Doing a one day is a great way to hit reset towards a clean eating plan.
I'm super passionate about all of this because it works. I want to educate and share with everyone the connection between food and mood, health and wellness.
