Here is a great one day detox juice plan, with the general emphasis on gentle cleansing. I usually carry out this detox plan myself a few times a year. It is really important that the juices are made up in advance and can be from raw fresh fruit and vegetables. As soon as you wake up in the morning, drink a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon. The water can either be hot, warm or cold..warm preferably. This is an excellent way to begin the fast as it helps cleanse the intestines. Here are some optional extras. You can try body brushing, followed by a hot shower, finished off with a burst of cold water.Checkout Athletic Greens for more info.
Afterwards give your body a good rub down with a towel, this will stimulate your circulation and lymphatic gland. Breakfast..Time for the first straight juice of the day. Drink one 230 ml serving of juice, diluted. If you feel thirsty during the morning drink either still water, water with a squeeze of lime, or a herb tea..try chamomile, lemon balm or rosehip for a soothing, cleansing effect. Try some simple breathing exercises and go for a gentle walk. Lunch..Whenever your internal clock says that it is time for lunch, drink another 230ml serving of your chosen juice, diluted. If you feel thirsty during the afternoon, drink water, water with a squeeze of lime, or herb teas.
Try a Sauna or Turkish bath, massage. Supper…Well done if you have managed to keep your hunger pangs and food at bay, now it’s time to finish your fast with a flourish, and drink down your final serving of juice, again 230ml of your choice, diluted. Drink water with a squeeze of lime, still water or herb teas if you are still thirsty. If you didn’t make the sauna or Turkish bath then take a bath with Epsom salts, before going to bed. Last Thing at Night…Give your digestive system one more last clean sweep by drinking a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon. Then curl up and snooze, ready to feel bright and breezy the next day!
