How many days should I cleanse for?

Cleansing is such an amazing experience that really connects you to the functions and needs of your body. While we recommend cleansing for at least 3 days to start, a 1 or 2 day cleanse can be a great way to maintain balance in your body and life. Adding a regular juice cleanse into your lifestyle is a great way to balance the effects of stress, pollution, and toxins that keep you from being your best. As you are receiving all your essential vitamins and nutrients, a juice cleanse can last several days and be extremely beneficial.  A longer cleanse can help you break through harmful habits, rid your body of many impurities, and put you back in control of your own health and happiness.

Isn’t cleansing for unhealthy people?

For thousands of years, people have practiced methods of detoxing to promote a longer, healthier, happier life.  In these times, cleansing can be a tool to bring balance in our bodies and our lives. It helps alleviate the effects of poor eating, stress, and environmental toxins. Cleansing helps us take control of our own health.

Is there anyone who shouldn't cleanse?
