Am I only going to drink the provided beverages throughout the entire cleanse?
If you are doing our Stage 1 Beginner’s cleanse, you are welcome to consume one light, plant-based salad or soup to curb any cravings once a day. If you do so, we suggest that you eat this meal in the middle of the day to reduce the amount of energy your body will use on digestion as you rest through the night.
If you are doing our Stage 2 or 3 cleanse, we strongly recommend that you only consume the provided beverages to get the best result.
At any stage you are welcome to drink water and herbal teas throughout the day as needed.
Can I still drink coffee?
The goal of fasting is to detoxify the body and caffeine is a toxic substance. While cleansing, the body will be aggressively removing it along with many, many other toxins. Therefore, drinking coffee would be counterproductive. Furthermore, the process of cleansing the body is not entirely without discomfort. People who drink a lot of caffeine often develop a headache on and off for at least a day or two while juice cleansing.
Will I feel more energetic?
Yes! During the first few days of your juice cleanse your body detoxifies intensely. This is made possible as the energy normally used for digestion is now free to clean your systems. You gain energy from the lack of digestion and then will experience even higher levels as you continue. This energy is used to support brain and bodily function, creating harmony in your system overall. A feeling of serenity and peace will come over you as your frequency changes.
Is there a specific order I should drink my juices and smoothies in?
You can choose to drink freely. All of our beverages work harmoniously to cleanse the body so there is no recommended order. The only guidelines are to drink a lot of water and drink a juice or smoothie only when you begin to feel hungry (every 2 or 3 hours). Drink your last beverage at least 3 hours before you go to bed. You may drink water or hot herbal tea closer to bedtime.
How long should I cleanse?
Three days is a sufficient duration of time to detoxify the body. However, it is a very personal experience and for some people, it will take longer before feeling fully cleansed. This rate can also depend on age as those beyond the age of 30 are often storing more toxins in larger quantities, which takes more time to clear from the body. We recommend that people over 30 complete at least a 7-day cleanse. This will ensure a complete detox experience and at least a few days of increased vitality.
When I am done cleansing how soon can I return to my normal diet?
We recommend breaking your fast with fruit on the first day, choosing one fruit per mealtime, as opposed to a mixed fruit salad.
