To maximize your cleanse benefits and results, we recommend you start by cutting out a few things 48 hours before your cleanse begins and drinking plenty of water. Don't worry! It's easier than it seems. The more preparation, the more graceful and beneficial the cleanse. Your body will thank you for it, we promise!
Also allow this time to determine your plan for coming off the cleanse which can be just as important as the cleanse itself. Plan to set aside a few days post-cleanse to eat simple and clean, the same way you did during the 48 hours prior to your cleanse. & if you're looking to get the maximum effect from your cleanse, schedule a colonic. It's an effective, fast way to release a lot of toxins from your body. We do understand that colonics may be a bit adventurous for some, so it's okay if you're not feeling up to it.

Congratulations on starting your cleanse! Here are some things to keep in mind to make your cleansing journey enjoyable:
NOTE: Avoid gum or mints while cleansing.They promote the release of digestive enzymes that make you hungry. Plus, they are comprised of artificial ingredients and sweeteners.
Coming off a cleanse is just as important as the cleanse itself. The cleaner and simpler you keep your system, the better you'll feel. The next few days are known as "breaking the cleanse." The best way to break your cleanse is to eat foods the same way you did preparing for it. For the next 48 hours, focus on consuming raw fruits and veggies and avoiding dairy, meat and gluten products. You are welcome to add additional juice and vegetable broth during these 48 hours. Starting day 3 post-cleanse, you can start to reintroduce meat and dairy products if you wish - just take it slow. Try steamed fish in place of beef, pork and chicken and goat's milk products in place of cow's in the beginning.
Keep in mind that everyone is different and we won't force you to follow our suggestions. We want you to have the best experience possible with your cleanse and following the above methods have been shown to allow the results of your cleanse to really set in and protect you from falling in to any unhealthy eating habits from cravings.
While we can't guarantee your results, we find that many people who do a juice cleanse experience any or all of the following results:
A Sense of Peace
Superb Digestive Function
All the "Feel Good Feelings" of Great Nutrition
