Our juice cleanses range from 1 to 5 days and the appropriate length varies from person to person. Longer cleanses provide a deeper detoxification while shorter cleanses are a great way to flood your system without vitamins and nutrients. If this is your first time cleansing, we generally recommend 2 or 3 days so that your body is able to experience the impacts of a liquid diet. You can always adjust as you go and add additional days to your cleanse based on how your body feels.
Preparing for Cleanse
Make an extra effort to hydrate throughout your day (at least two liters/day) in the days leading up to the cleanse. Drinking water helps set the stage for a smoother cleanse because it allows your cells to eliminate toxins more easily, decreases tiredness, and reduces food cravings. Avoid alcohol, nicotine, caffeinated and diuretic drinks, meat & poultry, dairy & egg products, fish & seafood, sugar, refined carbs and processed foods. Incorporate the following into your diet: steamed veggies, salads, fruits, smoothies, fresh juices, gluten free grains (i.e., quinoa and millet).
Price of Cleanse
Cleanses are $60 per day and also include a $10 daily jar deposit and a $10 daily delivery fee (if applicable). We kindly ask that you order your cleanse with 48 hour notice but we will do our best to accommodate orders under shorter notice. Given sufficient notice, our cleanses are customizable, just ask!
Eat! ! Your cleanse is intended to promote detoxification of your internal organs through a liquid diet. This gives your digestive system a chance to take a break from digesting food and work on digesting long term build in your intestinal lining. We recommend keeping it simple and consuming foods that are whole and raw. Avocados are a great way to add some healthy fats to your diet while on a cleanse. Salads are also a great supplement. Again, listen to what your body needs!
Exercising on Cleanse
Be gentle. Your body is still getting a lot of nutrients but your caloric intake is lower. We recommend low impact exercise like walking or yoga -- the added effect of deep breathing to help you maximize your cleanse. Listen to your body and see how you feel. If rest is what you need when on your cleanse, take it!
After the Cleanse
By the same token that you should ease your body into a cleanse, you should also ease your way out of a cleanse. Continue to drink lots of water and keep your diet simple -- eat lots of veggies, salads, juices, smoothies, and gluten free grains!
