Preparation is needed for effective physical cleansing and successful mental and emotional cleansing.
Having juice fasted in over 6 different locations around the world every year for the last 10 years, I can tell you that the ONLY way to prepare is through a restrictive diet three days before. In fact this is the only time I ever advocate anyone to diet. As a traditional Naturopath I advocate an anti-inflammatory lifestyle never diets.
What to ELIMINATE at least three days before:
- Meat, fish and poultry
- All Cooked and processed food
What to ENJOY at least three days before:
- Filtered water; at least 2 litres a day
- Raw fruit
- Raw vegetables
- Nuts, seeds and oils raw; sesame oil, olive oil, avocado oil, hemp oil, coconut oil
What to buy prior to the cleanse
Cold pressed juicer if you are not having juices delivered (see here for supporting Real Naturo juice bars and delivery services in your area)
Enema kit from your local pharmacy
Skin brush from a health food shop
What to book prior to the cleanse
Time off work if possible: if not a least 3 hours a day to simply be alone in nature or somewhere quiet.
Massages: Arvigo is my personal favourite whilst cleansing its a Mayan stomach massage.
A naturo-therapy session such as Era healing for day number four. Often the most challenging day emotionally. A great time to go deep into the psyche with facilitation by an expert.
Health M.O.T: this is the perfect time for a naturopathy consultation for an all round health assessment. You will benefit from an assessment pre cleanse, during or post cleanse.
