What is detoxification?

Detoxification includes the way our bodies identify, neutralize and eliminate toxins that are unhealthy for us.

Entire Detox Week

Remember by day 1 of the detoxification you must have prepared for a few days prior to starting. For the entire detox week, eliminate all flesh foods/meats (fish, beef, pork, lamb, poultry etc.) refined sugars (white/brown high fructose corn syrup) and artificial sweeteners (saccharine, aspartame, and Splenda), use small amounts when necessary (stevia, honey, maple syrup, molasses) and avoid alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, cigarettes, chocolate and recreational drugs for the entire week.

Our detox juice fast programs are not intended to be a “one size fits all” to all people. Everybody is different in age, gender, lifestyle, diet, health issues and medications we suggest a detox plan accordingly.

Preparation is important for about at least 1-7 days prior to starting any detox fast. It depends on your diet and elimination process. If you have a high protein diet and carbohydrate diet, are taking narcotics or pain medication, you may need a 2-7 day food preparation. Start to slow down and eliminate the high protein, carbohydrates, high salt and sugar content and replace them with greens, vegetables, salads, broths, soups, seeds and nuts. Use sea salt and replace sugar with stevia. If you are hypoglycemic, you may take honey, maple syrup, or agave. If you are trying to lose weight, you need to stop or cut down on carbs, sugars, and fruit (may take green apples, berries, pineapple) and replace them with greens, salads, vegetables, proteins such as seeds, nuts, whey, soy, chia seed, flax seed etc. The parasite cleanse is similar to the weight loss preparation. Supplement fiber is important prior and during detoxification process. However, if you are constipated, it may be contraindicated and should wait until you have your first colonic session to have your first dose of supplement fibers.

Precautions and Expectations

  • Detoxification crisis
    Common and temporary symptoms of detoxification include headache, feeling lousy, fatigue, weakness, cramps, diarrhea, mood changes. These symptoms are due to different factors including the movement and dislodging of toxins, low blood sugar, low fluids, electrolyte imbalance, withdrawal from sugars, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine etc. Cravings; sugars and carb craving are stronger in the first 3 days.
  • Dehydration
    It is common during fasting and detoxing; make sure you drink all your fresh juices assigned and lots of fluids about 8-10 glasses of water a day and try to avoid caffeinated drinks.
  • Loss of friendly intestinal bacteria
    Probiotics or friendly bacteria live in the intestinal area and its major job is to fight infections, and unfriendly disease causing organisms. Friendly bacteria is attacked and damaged by having a high processed diet, a PH imbalance, excessive antibiotics,medications other toxins and chemicals. By having a colonic session, some of the friendly bacteria may be washed out, and 50-100 billion live cultures daily is recommended especially when detoxing
