Pre/During/Post Cleanse

Pre-cleansing phase

1. Glass of warm water with lemon: introduce a glass of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning. This enables your digestive system to wake up efficiently and encourages initial release of toxins. 

2. Reduce all those delicious indulgences: wheat, dairy, coffee, sugar, high fat foods, alcohol, bad fats and red meat. 

3. Fruit and vegetable juice: Introduce fresh fruit and vegetable juices, raw greens and vegetables. 

4. Avoid having a big dinner the night before you start otherwise the initial side-effects of your 1st day cleanse may become more intense. 

5. Exercise: Do more intense detoxifying exercises daily prior to your detox: jogging, swimming, yoga. The whole-body exercise is great for eliminating toxins even without embarking on any detox plan. 

6. Hot bath: Have a warm to hot bath with some Epsom Bath Salt in the evening. It is used to remove toxins from the body, reduce swelling and improve skin structure, relieve muscles pain, ease stress and for general body relaxation. 

7. Mind set: Work on your mind set. It is as important, in some cases even more so, as the physical preparation of your body before the cleansing. Remember the saying: ‘Deal with your mind and the body will follow’.

 

Cleansing phase

We would recommend that you continue implement points 1, 6 and 7 from your Pre-Cleansing phase while on detox. You may also wish to follow additional steps while being on detox:

1. Stay hydrated: Being hydrated with water/herbal tea between juices is a must. This will also ease the dreaded "coffee withdrawal headache".

2. Dry brushing: Do dry brushing before your bath, shower and exercise as lymphatic massage helps to stimulate metabolism and detoxify your body. 

3. Sauna, steam rooms: Both assist your body in mobilising stored fat, which becomes water soluble around 42 degrees and then expelled from your body via sweat.

4. Exercise: Do more intense detoxifying exercises daily prior to your detox: jogging, swimming, yoga. The whole-body exercise is great for eliminating toxins even without embarking on any detox plan.

5. Contrast Shower: Alternate between hot and cold water. Higher temperature dilates the vessels and encourages the flow of lymph and blood. As the result, toxins can be eliminated in areas where the circulation of these fluids had been sluggish. The sharper the contrast between the hot and the cold water the better the effects will be.

6. Body massage: make your masseuse aware of your cleansing programme so that she could massage the area of the liver helping the cleansing effect. Head massage is also very beneficial to the detox process.

7. Hot bath: Have a warm to hot bath with some Epsom Bath Salt in the evening. It is used to remove toxins from the body, reduce swelling and improve skin structure, relieve muscles pain, ease stress and for general body relaxation. 

8. Juice before bedtime: Finish the last juice two hours before bedtime as it allows your digestive tract proper rest.

 

Post-cleansing phase

Repeat steps 1-7 of the ‘Cleansing’ phase on a regular basis if you would like your cleansing results to last.
