Juice Cleanses.

Good evening/morning everyone, today we are going to talk about what a juice cleanse is! I know you’ve read about why you should do one, and even about processed juices. But today we will dive into what a juice cleanse is. Juice cleanses are a type of detox diet that involves consuming fruits and vegetables for a short time from one to three days. The many varieties of juice cleanses include homemade juices made with fresh fruits and vegetables run through a juicer or pulverized in a blender, while others require store-bought juices. The practice of juicing isn’t new, but the first modern juicer was invented in the 1930s. Fruits and vegetables are filled with vitamins and minerals, and juicing extracts those nutrients making them easier to digest. Drinking juice is believed to flood the body with healing nourishment while also flushing toxins and waste. A juice cleanse supports the body’s natural detox processes, clears the diet of sugar, caffeine, refined foods, and other foods and substances that can deplete energy, and jumpstarts a more healthful way of eating.

How a juice cleanse works? During a juice cleanse, it is recommended to drink only juice for the number of days. For Humble Soul, we have from Day 1 to Day 5.

Preparation:

Three to five days before the cleanse, you will gradually eliminate certain foods, such as coffee, refined sugar, meat, dairy products, wheat, alcohol, and nicotine to reduce headaches, cravings, and other withdrawal symptoms. It’s also recommended to increase your intake of fresh vegetables, fruits, and fluids during the pre-cleanse.

Cleanse:

For the one to three days of the actual cleanse, it is recommended to drink at least 32 ounces of juice or smoothie with at least half being green vegetable juice. Our most popular cleanses the three-day cleanse, which comes with 18 juices you drink six a day and our five days cleanse that comes with 30 juices.It is also VERY VERY VERY important to drink half a gallon of water a day. Yes, you will be peeing like a racehorse, but your skin and body will thank you after the cleanse.

After the fast:

Once the fast is over, it is recommended to eat lightly for a few days, gradually adding foods back over several days. Please please DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT order a pizza, eat fried foods, or get super drunk the day after your cleanse. Your stomach will not be happy, and the toilet will be your BFF. Try light foods, steaming, or baking for at least two days after the cleanse. What to do during a cleanse?* Stick to Light Physical Activity: While it’s a good idea to tone down your exercise routine during a juice cleanse, normal activities such as walking can boost blood and lymphatic circulation.* Book a Massage: Try massage therapy (such as Swedish massage, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage, and Thai massage), contrast showers, and skin brushing, which can be done as part of a regular shower.* Practice Mind and Body Wellness: Stress can have adverse effects on health and may impair detoxification. Allow the mind to rest by incorporating mind/body practices such as diaphragmatic breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or mindfulness meditation. Try to get plenty of rest. Go to bed as early as you can and take naps if possible

.* Prepare for Emotions That May Arise During Fasting: According to traditional Chinese medicine, the liver is associated with anger, the kidneys with fear, and the gallbladder holds frustration. Proponents of juice cleansing believe that old emotions may arise and be cleansed from the system as the corresponding organs are cleansed.

Now during juice cleanses, I get asked a lot can I eat during my cleanse? And technically, the answer is yes. Raw, organic juice is the critical component of the cleanse. It’s nutrients, phytochemicals, and antioxidants are in an easily absorbable liquid form. Vegan, gluten-free meals and snacks may be included for people requiring more energy, new to juice cleansing, or less extreme experience. Smoothies and vegan food can be added or substituted in more gentle juice cleanses. If you do decide to have a salad use a vinegar-based dressing on the bottom of this post ill post a few recipes.

Our Typical three day cleanse:

7 am ( Whenever you wake up): Ginger tea 9 am: Ultimate Green Juice 11 am: Tropical Carrot 1 pm: Ultimate Green Juice 2 pm: Beet pine 4 pm: Tropical Carrot 2 hours before bed drink green tea/ginger tea 
The point of the cleanse is to drink juice every two hours. The times are just examples and a guideline to follow. To optimize nutrient absorption, juice cleanses proponents recommend drinking juice slowly rather than gulping it down. The final drink of the day is at least two to three hours before bedtime.

Juice cleanses can be done at home using a juicer or juice press. Cleanse programs are also available in many cities here in Hawaii you can order from Humble Soul.

Pros:

Better Health: Since fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients, drinking fresh juice boosts the intake of vitamins, minerals, and other anti-inflammatory compounds that boost energy, immunity, and overall health.* Removes Toxins: Juice fasts are said to flush toxins from the body, although there is limited scientific evidence.* Improved Digestion: Raw juice contains enzymes that may improve digestion. Research shows that a juice-based diet can alter intestinal microbiota to enhance weight loss in as little as three days.

Cons:

Juicing isn’t for everyone. please check out Unprocessed Juice: https://wordpress.com/block-editor/post/humblesoullifeofajuicer.blog/237

Kidney Stones: Many juices are made from dark, leafy greens and beets, two highly oxalate foods, which may cause kidney stones and other problems.* Low Blood Sugar: The juice cleanse is small, and calories and may cause low blood sugar, which can be dangerous for people with diabetes and hypoglycemia. Symptoms of low blood sugar include dizziness, fainting, weakness, shakiness, headaches, and hunger.

As always, please remember to clean your fruits and vegetables. Humble Soul soaks fruits and vegetables in a mixture of 1 part vinegar (about 1/2 cup) and three parts water (we fill up the sink) for about 10 to 15 minutes) If you decide to use your sink, please wash and rinse it before and after every time to reduce contamination. )*Scrub firm produces, such as melons and cucumbers, with a clean produce brush under running water. Even if you plan to peel the produce before juicing it, wash it under running water first, so dirt and bacteria are not transferred from the surface when peeling or cutting into it.
Have a blessed day! If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a ring. Until next time(:
