Detox Recommendations 

Detoxification is an important step to allowing your body to function at it’s best capacity.  The process does not have to be difficult or taxing on your body if you follow our guidelines and suggestions listed here. You will find that juice fasting can be a rewarding part of achieving your optimal health and nutritional status.

Do:

  • Drink at least 3 Juices (12-36oz each) during the day with water or tea in between. The size of these juices will depend on your hunger level. We recommend beginning with 24oz. If you’re too full, make the next one smaller.
  • Drink more water. It’s the best way to flush toxins out of the body. Aim for 80oz or more daily.
  • Have at least one 8oz glass of water with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar (ACV). This helps remove mucus and toxins while juicing.
  • Chew” your juices, slowly, to stimulate enzymes. Digestion begins in the mouth.
  • Keep it simple. A good rule of thumb is 3-4 ingredients per juice recipe.
  • As much as possible, strive to buy organic veggies. A great strategy is to use the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen as a handy reference when buying your produce.
  • Move your body for 15-30mins each day. Movement is important while fasting because it helps stimulate the lymph system, which is responsible for processing the toxins you’ll be working to remove from your body.
  • Some great exercise options are always walking, stretching, swimming, yoga, or any other “light” forms you can think of. You’ll sweat out toxins in your perspiration. Also, try to exfoliate and/or dry-brush your skin to remove toxins through your pores.
  • Meditate. Deep breathing helps cleanse the body.
  • Get plenty of sleep. Your body heals itself as you rest.

Don’t:

  • Starve yourself. The reason why juicing works so well is because the nutrients from juice allow your body to do the work it needs to in order to effectively detox
  • Try intense workouts. It’s important to allow your body to detox. If you overdo it in the gym, you’ll most likely not be successful in this. Plan on light activity for success.
  • Expect instant results. This juice fast protocol is an amazing tool. Our community uses protocols like this to aid in detox and weight loss and improve their health. It’s a perfect tool for change. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

How it Works

For the next 3 days you will actually be eating no solid food. I know this sounds scary, but this is how the process works, believe in it!

To make this easiest here some additional helpful tips:

Drink as much water as possible throughout the day, add lemon juice if desired.

Drink up to 36 ounces of fresh fruit and vegetable juice every three hours.

“Fresh” entails the following:  Straight out of a juicer from real fruits and vegetables, or…Any juice purchased that says it is from 100% vegetable juice with no other ingredients.

TIP: Look for pre-made juices with a short shelf-life. The best pre-made juices should always have an expiration date right on the bottle, showing that the ingredients are ALIVE and won’t last very long on the shelf.

Most standard store-bought juices such as apple juice or grape juice are pasteurized (heated to kill bacteria). Pasteurization is great, but not in the case of vegetable juices.

Pasteurization effectively destroys most the beneficial enzymes you get from FRESH juice. This is one of the primary differences between juicing your own juices fresh and those that you buy in the store.

One final note, any juice is better than no juice, but it’s important to remember to drink ALIVE, FRESH juice whenever possible and in order to get the results you expect.

Do one of the following to ensure regular bowel movements:

  • Take 1 tbsp of psyllium husk with two cups of water immediately after waking up and immediately before bed.
  • 1-2 TBSP of Chia Seeds in 8oz water daily
  • 500mg Magnesium Malate before bed nightly
