Frustrated with your weight loss regime? Feeling sluggish and tired? Jump-start your weight loss program or simply enhance your health with a 3-day cleanse that will put you on the fast track to feeling your best. Utilize this simple and effective cleansing recipe three to four times a year to detoxify and rejuvenate your body.
3-Day Cleanse Ingredients
Gather the following ingredients for this 3-day cleansing regimen:
100 percent whole leaf aloe vera juice Prune juice (not from concentrate) Apple juice (not from concentrate) Fresh lemons Flax seed oil Fresh ginger Distilled water Raw apples (optional) Dr. Christopher's Lower Bowel Formula (optional) Senna tea (optional) Psyllium husk powder (optional)
First thing in the morning, drink 14 to 16 oz. of prune juice to stimulate the intestinal tract and draw toxic waste out of your body to be eliminated. When possible, choose organic juice, and avoid any juice that has been reconstituted or artificially sweetened. Only 100 percent juice is beneficial for a cleanse.
Drink your morning juice slowly, swishing each sip in your mouth for a few seconds in order to facilitate better digestion.
Throughout the day, alternate 8-oz. glasses of apple juice and lemon ginger water (distilled water with fresh squeezed lemon and grated fresh ginger, as palatable).
Do not drink the liquids too quickly. Doing so may cause nausea or disrupt the electrolyte balance of your body. Pace yourself. By the end of the day, you should consume approximately 64 oz. of apple juice, and the same portion in lemon ginger water. This amount may vary according to your body weight and size.
During the day, consume 2 additional oz. of Aloe Vera juice for a total of 4 oz. per day. Aloe Vera supports bowel and intestinal health by preventing constipation and encouraging healthy digestion.
Taking 1 tbsp. of flax oil twice daily will help to lubricate the bile ducts and facilitate the elimination of toxins.
If you are hungry throughout the day, you may eat fresh apples as often as desired. No other foods are advised during the course of the cleanse.
Consult your doctor to determine whether a cleanse diet is appropriate for you.
Cleansing symptoms may include diarrhea, constipation, headache, nausea and fatigue. Remember to always follow your body's cues, and consult a medical expert if you experience anything that concerns you during the course of your cleanse.
If constipation arises during your cleanse, you may find additional support by taking a bowel remedy (such as Dr. Christopher's Lower Bowel Formula), or by consuming senna tea or psyllium husk powder, as directed on the packaging.
Consider a visit to a colon hydrotherapist when you have finished your 3-day cleanse to magnify your results.
