When is the best time to cleanse?

Because there are so many various reasons to cleanse, there is no "perfect" time for a cleanse. Many people often desire to do a cleanse during change in seasons (spring clean), after the holidays, before a special event or when they are looking to get back on track to a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, many people include cleanses into their regular health programs to maintain overall wellbeing, 
 

How often can i cleanse?

Every person is different with a different body type and different lifestyle. It depends on what feels right for you. Some prefer to do one 5day cleanse every 6months to a year. Some prefer to cleanse at the change of the seasons while others prefer to cleanse once a month. Listen to your body, experiment and determine what works best for you.
 

Is my body getting all the nutrients it needs?

We have carefully planned our cleanses to ensure that you are receiving sufficient nutrients for healthy normal functioning. You are receiving plenty of vitamins and minerals from the fruit and vegetable juices. The nutmilks contain protein and the dahls contain protein as well as fiber. 

What about fiber, should I take supplements?

If you are concerned about getting enough fiber we suggest doing Level 1 as it has the most fiber content. You will be receiving fiber in the smoothies as well as from the legumes in the dahl. 


Will I lose weight?

Yes, you may lose weight while doing this cleanse. Our cleanses are intended as a healthy lifestyle transformation and not a quick weight loss fix. Ideally your body will change along with your attitude toward food. You can keep the weight off if you continue to eat well and exercise. One of the benefits of cleansing is reduced food cravings which will help you to eat healthier after the cleanse and keep yourself looking and feeling fabulous.


Can I spread the cleanse out throughout the week? Skip days?

This is not recommended. It is best to do the cleanse in consecutive days if you choose to do a 3 or 5 day cleanse. If this feels too challenging for you at the moment stick to a 1 day cleanse and progress to a longer cleanse when you feel ready. 

 

I have allergies to lactose, wheat, nuts, soy. Can I still do the cleanse?

If you have particular allergy concerns please email us. Our kitchen and machines are in regular contact with nuts. 
 

I am trying to get pregnant.. Can I still do the cleanse?

Yes, but only if you are positive you are not pregnant.
 

Can I do the cleanse while pregnant or breast feeding?

We strongly advise against it. 
 

Are there any conditions under which I should not cleanse?

Cleansing is not recommended for:

  • Pregnant and breast feeding women. This is because toxins are released during a cleanse and can pass into the bloodstream or breast milk, and the calories in the cleanse will not be sufficient. 
  • people that are losing weight due to an illness
  • children under the age of 16
     

If you have the following conditions we strongly recommend that you cleanse only under supervised care of your health care professional:

  • Advanced heart, liver or kidney disease
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Anorexia or bulimia
  • MCAD deficiency
  • Kidney dysfunction
  • Tuberculosis
  • Hyperglycemia
  • Mentally or emotionally unstable or unwell

Please note if you are currently taking prescription medication please seek medical advice from your health care progressional before starting this cleanse.

It is recommended to consult a health care professional before cleansing if you have any specific health concerns
