leaf  CONDENSED NUTRITION

It takes 18-25 pounds of produce to make the juice for a 3 day juice cleanse: An amount of veggies that no one could ever eat in that same period of time! When you combine all of those vitamins and nutrients you ARE bringing in and the unhealthy foods you ARE NOT, with the body eliminating built up toxins, you end up with a period of very condensed nutrition.

leaf  DETOX & CLEANSE & ELIMINATE

Our amazing bodies are designed to detox all on their own . . . our liver, kidneys and lungs are all detoxing powerhouses, BUT they were not designed to ingest fake, processed, preservative-ridden foods, lots of caffeine, drugs, pollutants or stress! We can’t keep up and that leads to chronic disease, weight gain and all sorts of health problems. So we need to back that system up, give our bodies a break from the chaos, and deeply cleanse our bodies in a focused period of nourishment.  Veggies, herbs, fruits and superfoods all have unique cleansing capabilities and when they flood your body in the from of fresh, raw juice is when the cleaning big guns come to town! A juice cleanse is an opportunity to eliminate and clean what is stuck in our bodies while adding in a lot of nutrients so we can help our body to do what it is naturally supposed to.

leaf  DIGESTIVE SYSTEM GETS TO REST

The process of digestion takes more energy than any other function in the body. Every breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and bite means the digestive system has to work hard on your behalf to get the job done. Whenever you fast with juice, your digestive system gets a much-needed time-out. That critical rest renews your energy resources and enables you to more efficiently clean-house as well as heal the body and beautify from the inside out!

leaf  HEALING POWER

When you consider the above three points it is easy to grasp the healing power of fasting with juice. This is not a new, trendy concept. In fact it has been around for thousands of years. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, prescribed fasting, including juice fasting, to his patients to heal disease. He said “Our food should be our medicine.  Our medicine should be our food.  But to eat when you are sick is to feed your sickness.”

A fantastic resource if you want to learn more about the healing power of cleansing and fasting is to check out the Gerson Institute – a non profit organization that offers an alternative, non-toxic treatment for cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases with juice cleansing and colonics. They have an astounding 95% success rate!

leaf  SELF CARE

While on a juice cleanse our minds become more clear and our spiritual awareness can deepen. When you don’t have to worry about feeding the body, (since we will be nourishing you with juice) you can turn your attention to feeding your mind and spirit.
If you can mentally decide to make a juice cleanse a period of deep mental and physical nourishment the results can be lifechanging. Some tips for self care include: walks in nature, meditation, journaling, baths, reciting positive affirmations or practing speaking to yourself in a loving way, yoga, gardening, being creative, and just taking care of YOU. Take doing a juice cleanse as an opportunity to send yourself a heavy dose of love.

leaf  SHIFT CRAVINGS & HELPS YOU EAT A WHOLESOME PLANT-BASED DIET

Eat crap, crave crap. Eat and drink fresh produce, crave fresh produce; beautiful and colorful foods; live foods that nourish your body and lead you to optimal health and vitality. This is our biggest goal when making you your juice – to help you shift your cravings and transition into a more whole food, plant-based diet. 

leaf  WEIGHT LOSS

Juice cleansing leads to a massive flooding of toxins out of your fat cells – cellulite is noticeably reduced and inches are lost. How does this work? Cleanses give you a boost in live enzymes which help to increase your metabolic rate. This increased metabolic rate not only helps you become more efficient in processing foods, but it also helps you to process the existing food that is still hanging around in your colon, rendering you doubly efficient in digesting food. 

leaf  GLOWING YOUTHFUL SKIN, SHINY HAIR, BRIGHT EYES

Juicing and cleansing slows down and even reverses the aging process by oxygenizing the skin and pores, increasing circulation, hydrating your cells and fighting free radicals.

leaf  SHIFT CRAVINGS / TRANSITION TO A MORE PLANT BASED DIET

Eat crap, crave crap. Eat and drink fresh produce, crave fresh produce; beautiful and colorful foods; live foods that nourish your body and lead you to optimal health and vitality. This is our biggest goal when making you your juice – to help you shift your cravings and transition into a more whole food, plant-based diet.

leaf  INCREASED ENERGY & LIGHTNESS

A cleanse will replace the sense of heaviness and lethargy with a sense of buoyancy, energy and vitality. Giving your body a break from digesting food, combined with live enzymes found in raw plant foods, equals an energizer bunny effect that is pretty darn fabulous.

leaf  CLEAR MIND & MENTAL ALERTNESS

When the mind is free from fog, clutter, negativity and troubling thoughts, there is room for a sense of calm, focus and creativity to enter. Sugars muddy the mind; alkalinity from juicing reduces sugars and cleans up the mud. Clean away the mud and you are better able to focus, retain information and find your source of inspiration.

leaf  REDUCED STRESS & IMPROVED SLEEP

With a juice cleanse, you feel less cranky, moody and depressed and feel more easeful, relaxed and refreshed. That is of course, once you have passed through any detox symptoms you may experience. Typically on day 2.

leaf  A SHIFT IN PERCEPTION

FOODS CAN HEAL YOU – Hippocrates wisely said it best, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Your body knows this to be true – eat plants + drink plants = be healthy 

leaf  IMMUNE SYSTEM GETS A BOOST & PREVENTS ILLNESS

Juicing helps increase the nutrient content and antioxidant value in your body, helping to protect the immune system from short-term sickness and long-term illness. Raw juices are full of live enzymes, which support the metabolic enzymes and aid in the maintenance of all the body’s systems (immune, digestive, excretory, nervous, circulatory, etc). Live enzymes also support the good bacteria of the gut and prevent the loss of critical intestinal flora which maintains your immunity at an all-time high.

leaf  NO MORE PROCESSED FOOD

That is, if you can call it food? Sadly, processed food is more like a chemically altered cocktail of crap. Your body was not meant to process chemicals – they produce a chemical toxic build up that leads to illness and disease.

leaf  DON’T HAVE TO GROCERY SHOP OR PLAN MEALS

Just grab your juice, shake well, sip and enjoy!
