As many of you know, there are a group of us starting a juice cleanse on Monday! This is a 5 day cleanse that costs $250-$290 depending on how many people we get on board. Its looking like it will be more than 10 of us, so $250 will be the cost.

Juice cleanses are “controversial”. There are many people who believe that they are a fad. The point is that you need to have a good reason for doing it. Trying to lose a bunch of weight by just drinking juice is not healthy. A 5 day cleanse however, will help you get started on a healthy path and cut out habits that are not working. Talk to me if you have concerns. We are in this together! I am juice cleansing because I want to get off the dependence on a glass of chardonnay at night and coffee in the morning. I know myself well enough to know that I need a simple plan to stick to.  If weight loss is your goal, the cleanse will kick start you, but most important is what you do after the cleanse! If you want to join in the fun please let me know asap and get your payment to me by Thursday 2/27.

Why cleanse?

•       More energy

The digestive system gets a break, so that energy used for breaking down solids is now freed up!

•       Clearer skin

When the colon has to deal with too much build up from processed foods, this can come out in our skin! Clearing out the gates can really make that skin glow!

•       Reset your taste buds

What you will notice after you complete a juice cleanse, is that everything tastes different. We re-establish that sensitivity to flavor.

Find out why your taste buds are toxic and a tool you can use to clean them up! 

•       Lose weight

This shouldn’t be the main intention of doing a cleanse, but the pounds will come off naturally. All that junk from your gut will be released.

•       Re-establish your relationship to food

Since you won’t be having solid food, this is a great time to see what surfaces when we aren’t able to have our favorite comfort foods. It is great to reflect and see if we are using food to become emotionally satisfied!

•       Improve immune function

It is said that our immune function is correlated with our digestive system. When we can detox our digestive system, this creates a stronger immune system.

REMEMBER: After you do a juice cleanse, it needs to be paired with a healthy lifestyle. If you are going to give it a try, you need to make sure you keep incorporating nutrient dense foods, juices and smoothies once you have completed a cleanse.
