For active, healthy eating individuals, a juice only cleanse is a refreshing and light way to increase energy, take a break from heavy foods or weed out a bad eating habit before it roots too deeply. A juice only cleanse is also optimal for an end of winter reboot for the system, a reprieve from hectic life to meditate and set intentions or to refresh when your body is naturally saying it doesn't need as many calories as you have been consuming.
Benefits of Detoxifying
Modern life exposes us to a multitude of toxins every day, from food, water, our environment and the natural waste products of metabolism. When functioning optimally, our bodies naturally release these toxins through the skin, liver, kidneys, lungs, and intestines. Raw juice helps support this process, giving the organs the specific nutrients and compounds they need to properly and safely break down, neutralize and release toxins while still providing the nutrients and energy we need. A headache, muscle aches, fatigue and mild stomach upset are common symptoms experienced while the body is processing stored toxins. Drinking plenty of filtered water, dry brushing, warm Epsom Salt baths, rebounding and making sure you are drinking enough juice at frequent intervals can help ease discomfort.

Are juices the answer for miracle DETOX?
Organic juice cleanses can provide a rest from processed foods, empty calories, nitrate GMOs and chemicals found in non-organic foods. Enzyme and nutrient rich cold pressed juices deliver pure and highly beneficial micro-nutrients: protein, carbohydrates, fats, salt and H20. There is no solid food matter to be digested during a juice cleanse, so your system gets well-needed down time. Energy then has an opportunity to be directed to heal and restore your body’s optimum health.
While we offer 1 and 3 day options, true detox takes anywhere from 2 to 5 weeks. This will involve some mixed physical experiences, both good and bad. Advanced cleanses should be done slowly in conjunction with raw foods and periodically even some steamed vegetables, soups and brown rice to slow the detox process down. We do not offer advanced cleanse options at this time. Extended periods of liquid only consumption do not offer the body all of the essential things it needs. Juices are very low in calories and are not sustaining in the long term. If you are interested in making some new and more positive strides towards a healthier you, we invite you to speak with our in house Holistic Nutritionists!
There can be serious health issues for people with pre-existing conditions. However, it can be a life transforming experience if done intelligently. Preparing our bodies before a fast is essential. Cutting out alcohol, caffeine, unhealthy fats, refined sugars, carbohydrates, processed foods, meats and dairy prior to fasting can eliminate a crisis reaction and help to transition smoothly. Many people throughout history have fasted just with water. We believe juice to be a better option which can accomplish a similar end. There may highs and lows during a fast as it can be extremely emotional, physically challenging, euphoric and transcendent.
Fasting is done by humans and animals alike. "The history of fasting can't have a beginning point because there's no reason to think that early man did not fast in the normal course of his existence; every other animal, even today, will fast during times of stress or illness, and sometimes even at the slightest uneasiness. It is a natural tendency for the organism, whether human or animal, to seek rest, balance, and to conserve energy at critical times." - From History of Fasting
