Before and After Cleansing
BEFORE YOU CLEANSE
The less extreme the change in diet is the easier it is for your body to adjust so eat and drink “clean”. Gradually cut back on processed foods, refined sugar and flour, alcohol, caffeine and salt the during week prior to your cleanse (simply put, start weaning yourself off of as many unnatural foods/liquids as you can).
Sleep is especially important prior to cleansing and during a cleanse. The body has a lot of important work to do and you want to be at your best mentally and physically so if you can get a few extra zzzz’s your body will reward you.
Most important, be positive and look forward to the experience. Welcome the change from your regular routine. The juices will be unlike any juice you have tasted before – so savor the experience. Be proud of yourself for making the commitment to your health.
AFTER YOU CLEANSE
You will get the most benefit from your Raw Raw Cleanse if you avoid unnatural, processed food and stimulants for the first few days following your cleanse (the longer you can go without them, the easier it will be to cut them out the next time you do Raw Raw Cleanse). We suggest you try to eat a diet high in whole foods with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables because when meals are high in supportive nutrients and are easy to digest, your body has a much easier time transitioning from the juice cleanse back to solid food.
Some people like to end the cleanse with a colonic and believe that this helps to rid the body of any toxins that have been released but that perhaps have not yet passed. This is something that you should discuss with your doctor or a certified health professional. Every body is different and you may want to consult RHN, Lorrie Ingram about this or other options (www.lorrieingram.com) for follow up.
