First of all, if you don’t know me, I’m the BIGGEST procrastinator in the world!! I finished my cleanse at the end of February and it’s now April and I’m just getting around to writing about my journey. At least I’m writing about, right?!
“So, what’s really involved with this cleanse?” A question I get asked ALL the time. Most people hear the word ‘cleanse’ and think you have to starve or drink only juice for a week. That’s not the case here! This is the real deal, inner body tune up!
What I love about this cleanse is that it’s not just a something that helps your body eliminate waste, gently and naturally, but it helps revitalize your mind and body, and refuel your body with the micronutrients and macronutrients it craves.
This 21 day program was designed with three distinct phases, each lasting for seven days, to get you back to a healthy state.
In Phase One, you reclaim your body and prepare the inner chemistry for change. The gradual removal of red meat and dairy will remove added stress that is normally put onto the digestive system. To go along with the three meals and one snack allotted each day, the first seven days introduce you to four cleanse aiding supplements-Power Greens, Mineralize, Optimize, and Soothe. These supplements and well planned meals are critical in restoring proper hydration (that most of us neglect) and help the body maintain the body’s alkaline/acidic balance. This week long process will properly prime, balance, and nourish your body to continue on the detoxing journey.
In Phase Two, you being to release unwanted compounds that have been holding your system back. This is the start of the detoxification process. This phase of the cleanse offers a gentle colon cleanse and digestive support. At this point in the process, your diet has transitioned to a full vegan diet. During this second week, you are also adding another supplement to your daily routine-Detox. This was designed to help optimize the body’s ability to eliminate unwanted substances. Not only will you experience the release of waste from your digestive tract, but you may find your body releasing in other ways. It is very common to see increased skin breakouts, releasing toxic emotions, or dropping negative habits you’ve been holding on to. This process can effect everyone differently, so be open to the process and allow it to work for you.
Phase Three brings restoration to the digestive system and other internal processes. This phase puts nutrients and enzymes back into the body as well as provides vital pre- and pro-biotics. The third phase will cut out grains completely, leaving you on a mostly vegetable and fruit diet to give the digestive system a break. During this final phase, you will be introduced to the last supplement-Revitalize. This was designed to restore the natural bacteria to your freshly cleansed digestive tract, something that most cleanses often neglect!
Completing all three phases can certainly be challenging but with a little extra effort the results can be extraordinary! And the results are totally sustainable with the transition period in the weeks that follow. Advice on food and exercise, along with helpful tips and ways to continue to build are all included with the program so you don’t revert back to your old ways.
