Congratulations! You have taken the first step to a healthier YOU! We have compiled a basic outline and some helpful tips for your juice cleanse program. We hope this will answer any questions you might have about what to do before, during and after.
*Please consult your Physician or Wellness Professional prior to cleansing to address any specific health conditions.*
To maximize the success of your cleanse, we recommend you begin on either Thursday, Saturday or Monday. For this reason, our Cold Pressed Juice Cleanses are available for pickup on either Wednesday, Friday or Sunday. In order to provide freshly pressed juice, we ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice from the day you wish to pickup your cleanse. During checkout, please specify your desired pickup date in the field provided.
Your juice cleanse will be ready at your chosen Mother’s Juice Café location at 8 am. We ask that you pick up prior to 11 am due to the fact that we have limited refrigerator space. Please try not to pick up orders between 11 am and 1 pm as these are our busiest hours.
Remember to refrigerate your cleanse products as quickly as possible!
The more prepared you are, the better your cleanse will be. For an optimal cleansing experience, we recommend you include these healthy habits during the three days leading up to your program:
To help purify your body before your cleanse arrives, begin each day by drinking a glass of warm water with the juice of one lemon and a maximum of one-half teaspoon of cayenne (optional). This increases the rate of detoxification by opening the circulatory system and alkalizing bodily fluids.
Make an extra effort to hydrate throughout the day with filtered non-carbonated water (at least two liters per day). Drinking water helps set the stage for a smoother cleanse because it allows your cells to eliminate toxins more easily and decreases tiredness while reducing food cravings.
Eliminating the following substances from your diet ahead of time will make it easier once your cleanse begins! If giving up wheat completely feels too drastic, try staying away from refined starches like white bread, white rice, and pasta. This may sound like a lot but your body will thank you for it in the end! Keep in mind that you will have plenty of other cleanse-friendly foods to eat.
Every 3-Day Cleanse comes with fifteen 16 oz juices, specifically designed to provide the nutrients needed to sustain energy through the 3 day process. Important considerations:
Now you’re ready to drink your first juice! Starting in the morning, we recommend drinking your juices at intervals of about two to three hours and consuming your last juice, about two hours before bed. End your day right: At least an hour before bedtime, consume a cup or two of hot cleansing tea. Our juice cleanse is designed to replace meals and snacks, however, if this is your first cleansing experience, please feel free to grab a snack or two along the way. We recommended items from the list above should you feel the urge to eat.
To ensure that your cleansing process is as effective and enjoyable as possible please make sure to drink plenty of water in between juices. It is important to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine. You may experience some detox symptoms such as fatigue or headaches. Every person’s body reacts differently when cleansing. You may or may not experience these detox symptoms. Either way it’s important to:
Congratulations – you’ve hit the reset button and detoxified your system! Now, we want to make sure that you are prepared to maintain and maximize the effects.
You are still in a detox mode for a few days after ending your cleanse so be mindful of what you put into your system. Make sure to drink plenty of water and pace yourself as you slowly reintroduce simple, whole foods. We recommend starting with salads, smoothies, soups, and juices while avoiding processed foods and animal products. Optimal post-cleanse foods are the same as pre-cleanse diet suggestions:
Steamed vegetables, salads, smoothies, fresh juices and gluten-free grains like quinoa, amaranth and millet.
Finally, don’t forget to give yourself a pat on the back. You are on your way to a cleaner, healthier you!
