How a cleanse works
A daily supply of six, 16-ounce (473ml) beverages are delivered at a convenient time before your cleanse starts. Each nutrient-dense juice is made fresh with our hydraulic press system and bottled immediately. Once you receive your cleanse package, you will find each bottle clearly labelled in an order from one to six. You drink the first juice (#1) in the morning and the last one (#6) at least two hours before you go to bed. Usually our customers feel best when they consume their beverages approximately two hours apart. Each beverage is designed to replace solid foods and snacks, and it is important to strictly stay away from alcohol, energy drinks, caffeine, and nicotine while you are on a cleanse program.
It is important to ease into and out of your cleanse for at least 2 days pre-and post-cleanse. There are two main reasons for this: firstly, to make your cleanse easier – going from a weekend of excess straight into a cleanse is painful! Secondly, “pre-cleansing” allows you to make the most of your cleanse. By the time you start cleansing, your body is already cleaner and working more sufficiently, thus able to optimize on this time of self-healing. In a nutshell: The better you prepare, the better you repair!
Preparing your body will affect how you feel and respond during your cleanse, and we want you to feel your very best and shake off any first detox symptoms very quickly. A few days leading up to your cleanse, wean yourself off of some of your usual indulgences: Cut down the coffee, sugar, meat and dairy and add fresh fruit and vegetables to your meals. Pick a time for your cleanse where you know that you will be able to focus on yourself. Don’t try to squeeze a cleanse in your working week if you know you have a hectic schedule ahead of you. Think of your pre-cleanse meal plan as your way of getting your body in tune. You will thank yourself later during the cleanse!
Drinking the juices: Drink your juices in the order listed in your cleanse program. They have been selected in a specific order to best support the natural digestive rhythms of the body. You don’t have to finish all your juice in one sitting, we know it can be a lot to consume.
Drink plenty of water: Aim to drink 1 or 2 large glasses of water between each of your juices to help flush out the toxins. The success of your cleanse is dependent on doing it right. While you are doing a great thing for yourself by drinking beverages in place of meals, it is essential for your system to be in the best shape possible in order to keep everything flowing. Continue to hydrate by drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day. Hydration creates happy cells and you want to help your body in every way to flush your toxins out and stimulate your bowel movements.
Make sure you get ample rest and go to bed as early as possible. Try to take a short siesta during the afternoon if your schedule permits. In general, keep your schedule as light as you can as you might feel tired on the first and second day of your cleanse.
Mentally and physically, give yourself a break – take a warm bath in the evening, mediate and tone down your usual exercise regimen. Take light walks each day to accelerate your lymphatic and circulatory systems. You should always shower to get rid of any perspiration as soon as you can, so those toxins are completely released from your body.
You made it! Well done! You have come a long way in a pretty short time. Bigger news – you have started to change your life even if you have only just started drinking green juices. So, now that you’ve done all this amazing work on revamping your system, we want to make sure you’re armed with a maintenance kit that will help keep you on track and maximize the effects of your cleanse. The great health adventure has only just begun!
We’re sure you can feel the difference in your energy, skin, and digestive system alone, and the more you are able to keep your system together, the better off you will be. Life gets lighter and you shine brighter.
Revitalisation is for people who have very little or no experience with cleansing and detox. It is not only super gentle on the system but also very tasty and hence the easiest plan to start with.
Extension is for more experienced cleansers who already pay close attention to what they eat and are less likely to consume processed foods and refined sugary products.
