Before you start our Juice Detox Cleanse we encourage you to prepare with a pre-cleanse. The more time you devote to this, the better. Ideally, a month would be a great timeframe. We realize the period of time may not be perfect for all. If you only have a week, that’s good enough!
The pre-cleansing involves eating mostly raw foods (salads and fruits), smoothies, fresh-pressed juices and drinking plenty of water. We suggest you eat and drink alkaline-forming foods, including all fresh fruits, raw vegetables, raw juices, salad greens, sprouts, dates, dried apricots, dried figs, grapefruit, melons, raisins and lentils.
You want to avoid heavy proteins, processed foods, as well as coffee, alcohol and soft drinks. Stay hydrated with water by drinking half your body weight in ounces daily and consume a Liver Flush for four days prior the juice cleanse.
“The liver is responsible for facilitating digestion and elimination, and filtering potentially toxic waste products from the blood. Liver detoxification is especially important today, due to the increasing prevalence of chemical pollutants in our environment.”~~Michael Tierra,L.Ac., O.M.D
