3 days before detox
Prep, prep, prep – no matter how much we repeat these words, it is never enough. The better prepared you are, the easier the switch to our juices will be. It means that several days prior to your cleanse you should reduce consumption of all those tasty dishes we enjoy and eliminate the following: coffee (if possible) or you can drink our cold brewed coffee , sugar, meat and dairy products, and consume fish, fresh fruit, green and other vegetables with every meal. You can start with individual consumption of our juices, 1-3 a day instead of meals, and thus gradually enter the detoxification process. By consuming our juices combined with fresh fruit and vegetables, you will get perfectly prepared for cleanse itself.
LISTEN UP! NO farewell-to-solid-foods-with-a-steak-and-beer dinner the night before you start. You will NOT be a happy camper by the end of Day One. And that’s a promise. So start now!
- coffee (you can drink our cold brewed coffee, it’s 70% more alkaline than any other kind of coffee, and please drink it black or add our cashew or almond milk)
- dairy products
- meat ( add fresh fruit and veggies at every meal )
The more prepared you are before your cleanse, the smoother your transition will be, so start today.
Start your day with a glass of warm water with a slice of lemon. Water is essential during body cleansing as it eliminates toxins from the organs and body. Our juices provide living nutrients which our body needs, and water eliminates toxins from cells and “flushes” them out.
Juices are to be consumed in a numerical order, from 1 to 5, every 2.5 – 3 hours. The last juice is to be consumed at least 2 hours before going to bed.
Drink as much water as possible. It is also OK to consume herbal and green tea.
Light exercise to boost circulation or a massage is highly beneficial, as well as a sauna and steam bath. Treat yourself with body peeling to eliminate a layer of dead skin cells and show smooth, shiny and healthy skin. All the above makes the process of eliminating toxins easier.
*If you must chew something (not a chewing gum, of course), you can have a handful of raw almonds, walnuts or hazelnuts, one–quarter of avocado, clear soup, half of cucumber, half of apple, or drink a half of a bottle of the Juice no. 5 (protein-rich cashew nut milk) in the morning before you start with the Green Juice no. 1.
When tissues are eliminating toxins, they enter the blood stream and that is the reason for all “detox symptoms”.
There is no room for panic – it is only a temporary crisis on the road to feeling great!
Before you even ask this question, read the list below and don’t panic.
Detox symptoms may be:
- Reduced craving for smoking
- Itches /shiny skin
- Dry mouth
- Insomnia/deep sleep
- Runny nose
- Energy boost
- Sharper focus
- Stronger sexual drive
- Intense feeling of calmness and productivity
In case of any of these symptoms during detox, you should know that you can control and/or speed them up. To alleviate them, herbal teas are highly beneficial and you can consume them in unlimited volumes during detox. All of the listed teas can be found in Herbal Pharmacy “Dr. Josif Pančić”. Here are some of the recommendations:
* TEAS WITH SOOTHING EFFECT:
Lemon balm leaf team – for reducing stress and alleviating stomach problems
Tea no. 2 – for anxiety, fear and tension
St. John’s wort aerial parts tea
* TEA WITH LAXATIVE EFFECT:
Senna leaf team – recommended as a mild cleanser
* TEA FOR STIMULATING DIGESTION:
Basil aerial parts tea
Tea no. 7 – excellent for stimulating digestion and against abdomen gases
Proper diet after the cleanse is also very important.
On the first day after detox, continue with consuming juices (all juices can be purchased individually in our stores in Dobračina 23A, Mileševska 43, Shopping Center USCE, Level -2, next to Idea Supermarket, Mileševska 43, or in various Supermarkets ( Maxi, Shop&Go, Mercator and Idea Stores), in clear soups, fresh fruit and vegetables, on the second day start with grilled and steamed vegetables, and add beans on the third day. Fish or meat may be carefully introduced on the fourth day. Dairy products should be the last that you re-introduce to your regular diet.
Actually, the best for your body is diet based on 80% of raw fruit and vegetables, as thus you maintain alkaline balance. It has been confirmed that elevated body acidity is a basis for stress, fatigue, inflammations, obesity and weakening of the immune system.
