Do you wake up feeling groggy? Does your mind feel foggy and unfocused? Is your digestive system slow or sluggish? The stresses of everyday life, particularly for those of us living in a city, can catch up to us, leaving our bodies and minds vulnerable to toxins. We strongly believe that even a short, 1-day juice cleanse benefits the entire system, clearing out unwanted toxins and providing your body with a much-needed break from digesting food. So how, exactly, does it work, and what does a 1-day juice cleanse entail? Let’s look at some of the basics…

What Is A Juice Cleanse?

A juice cleanse is a powerful and effective way to support your body’s natural detoxification organs, helping them to flush away built-up toxins more efficiently. During a juice cleanse, you will consume only fruit and vegetable juices. Of course, we always recommend consulting with your trusted health care provider before making any significant dietary changes, but generally speaking, a juice cleanse is extremely safe for the majority of people who are not elderly, pregnant, or suffering from a weakened immune system. If you’re new to cleansing or don’t want to commit to a multiple-day juice cleanse plan, try this 1-Day Juice Liver Cleanse!

Cleansing the liver is one of the most important and effective approaches to improve your physical and emotional health.

The liver is an essential organ that plays a major role in the overall health of our bodies. One of its many functions is ridding the body of toxins and harmful substances we ingest or absorb.

We are exposed to environmental toxins all the time. Even the simplest of daily routines can expose us to several common pollutants found in the water we drink, the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the skincare products and household cleaners we use. While our liver, kidneys and lymphatic system play a major role in removing biologically harmful compounds, our body has difficulty dealing with the overwhelming amount of toxins we (often unknowingly) come into contact with every day. It’s no wonder that the body’s detoxification system can easily become overwhelmed, causing toxin overload. When the body has taken in more toxins than it can process, the real damage is imminent.

The buildup of dangerous substances can cause a number of changes in your body. In the early stages, your body tries to expel those toxins by any means necessary. You may experience diarrhea, sneezing or coughing fits, excessive urination, sore throat, heartburn, nasal congestion or runny nose (from mucus overproduction), or vomiting. Many people notice changes to their body odour or excessively oily skin. As the toxins gradually accumulate in your system, you may also experience fatigue, memory difficulties, sleep disturbance, skin rash, acne, depression, brain fog and inflammatory conditions. Cleansing the liver is one of the most important and effective approaches to improve your health.

The liver is not just a physical organ, but also a powerful center of connection to emotional wellbeing. When the biliary system (liver, gall bladder and bile ducts,) is congested we often experience fear. Fear then turns into frustration, and frustration into anger and anxiety. Keeping the liver clean allows trust and joy, instead of doubt and fear to control your life.

Juice Cleansing Tips

Tip 1: Drink juices every 2-3 hours to prevent cravings. This is a juice feast and you are not meant to deprive or starve yourself. Consuming one gallon of freshly pressed juices floods your cells with nutrition while giving your body a break from digesting foods.

Tip 2: Try to drink your juice immediately. After 15 minutes, light and air will destroy many of the nutrients. If you can’t drink it fresh, transfer it to an airtight glass container until you’re ready.

Tip 3: Avoid making one of the biggest and most common mistakes, not drinking enough water. Even though you are drinking great amounts of liquids in the form of juice you will still need water to flush out the toxins your body is releasing. Drink at least 8oz of water between each juice and drink your morning lemon water before your first green juice. 

Tip 4: Have compassion for yourself and know that you’re accomplishing great things every single hour and day as you work on your healing process with the power of fresh juices. Believe you can heal.
