You know the feeling when you realise you’ve been burning the candle at both ends? You’re exhausted but sleep poorly. You’re foggy, run down and susceptible to all the bugs. You reach for the nearest sweet/salty/carby foods and feel puffy and bloaty as a result. Skin breakouts, weigh gain ensues.
You know you need to hit the body’s “reset” button.
Remove and replenish
Many of those all-too-familiar problems start with the digestive system. When we overload it with processed food, alcohol, meat, dairy and refined sugars, the digestive system works overtime to process all the crap and deal with the resulting inflammatory responses in the body.
When we eliminate those foods, the digestive system takes a rest from the exhausting process of breaking down them down, and instead uses energy towards healing the body.
At the same time, when we replace those foods with nutritious, easy-to-digest foods (like cold-pressed vegetables and fruits) and lots of hydration, we flush out the toxins and refuel the body with highly bioavailable vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. These nutrients nourish and restore the balance of our microbiome, reduce inflammation and help to repair and regenerate the entire body.
✨ Improved energy, vitality and mental clarity
✨ Better quality sleep
✨ Better immune response
✨ Less bloating and digestive issues
✨ Brighter, clearer eyes and skin
Hunger or habit?
A juice cleanse can be a powerful tool to establish healthier eating habits beyond the cleanse itself. Instead of reaching mindlessly for a snack, a juice cleanse can help you become more in tune with your body’s hunger cues. A you truly hungry, or are you thirsty? Or are you bored? Do you really feel like another glass of wine, or are you just refilling because everyone else is? Take a breath and tune in to what your body is telling you, so you can make a choice that best serves you.
The discipline of a cleanse can help remind you that do you have willpower, and choices about how you fuel (and otherwise treat) your temple body.
Resetting your boundaries through a cleanse can be really powerful in helping move you towards your wellness goal, whether it be to drink less coffee/alcohol, cut down on refined sugars or lose weight.
Variety is the source of life
Most people struggle to meet the recommended “2 and 5” a day. In fact only 6.1% of Australian adults meet the recommended daily intake of fruit and veggies1. And it’s not just the number of serves, but the variety of plants that we eat that is important. The more diversity we have in our diet, the greater the range of nutrients are available to us. And, the more variety we develop in our friendly gut bacteria to keep our microbiome humming. A healthy, diverse microbiome supports a strong immune system, increases our resilience to infection, strengthens our intestinal barrier, balances our blood sugar and helps prevent disease.
It takes time and effort (planning, list-writing, grocery shopping…) to eat a true variety of plants in our diet.
Just one day of our Classic Cleanse program contains 23 different plant foods, so you get a wide range of nutrients in a single day.
Giving your friendly gut microbes the food they need to flourish is as easy as six jars of freshly cold-pressed juice.
So give your digestive system a much needed long weekend and hit “reset” with a 1, 2 or 3 day cleanse. Your body will thank you for it.
