Cleansing reconnects you with your body's needs. Dehydration is commonly mistaken for hunger, so drink at least eight glasses of water per day to keep your cells hydrated and eliminate false hunger. Drinking water is also an important first step in preparing for your juice cleanse because it transports nutrients to your cells.
Ease up on your regular workout routine and opt for yoga, light walks or stretching. You could even visit a sauna, steam room, or take a hot bath to help your body sweat. Your energy levels will change when you are on a juice cleanse, so pay attention to what your body needs before exercising.
When you are not focusing on what to eat next, you may start to experience more mental clarity. Meditation can enhance this clarity and help you obtain a greater sense of calm and awareness overall. Make sure you have the free time to take care of yourself and your body.
The closer you stick to the cleanse, the better the results will be. Eating will slow down the juice cleanse process. However, if you need to eat something, opt for water-based veggies such as cucumber or celery sticks, an avocado, a small green salad, a piece of fruit or small handful of nuts. This will not undo all the good that you are doing.
It is not uncommon to see a decrease in elimination as your cleanse continues. Less in can equal less out. However, it is important that you pay attention to your body's signals. If you are experiencing detox symptoms like nausea, but have not eliminated waste from your intestines, you may need to encourage elimination through an herbal laxative or enema.
The items to absolutely avoid the first few days after your cleanse include: red meat, dairy, alcohol, processed and fried foods.
Use your juice cleanse experience to create new, healthy eating habits. Celebrate what it is you accomplished, for your mind and your body, healing your body on a cellular level and elevating your wellness.
