10 Tips On How To Make Your Cleanse The Most Effective

By Culinary Director and Chef Darleen Gross

Yes, we all know that the Holiday’s are upon us and the frantic rush to prepare for hosting, gift-giving and travel is palpable! It’s during this very busy time of year that we can easily find ourselves overindulging, thereby weakening our immune systems. While these celebrations and vacations are highly anticipated and well deserved, they are often marred by fatigue and sickness. Don’t let that happen to you, give your body a break this Holiday and boost your immune system with a cleanse.

Now here’s the tricky part….how to fit a cleanse into an already busy month? The answer is plan ahead, pick your days and mark it on your calendar. At Organic Pharmer we have created 6 functional cleanses from 1 Day to Multi Days to fit your schedule. BTW - Look out for Organic Pharmer’s NEW Cleanse Subscription service (coming in 2018), to make your cleansing (almost) effortless!

Remember that for optimal benefit you’ll want to prepare yourself a day or more ahead of the cleanse, depending on the number of days you choose (1, 3 or 5). The rule of thumb is that for each day you will be on the cleanse you should add a day of preparation before and a day of easing off at the end. This may sound like a lot but trust me, your body will thank you for your dedication and devotion.

Now, my gift to you are 10 tips on how to make your cleanse the most effective! These tips apply to your preparation, cleanse and easing off days.

  1. Start your morning off with some warm lemon water to stimulate your liver and kickstart the detox process.

  2. Replace coffee or caffeinated tea with green or herbal teas.

  3. Eliminate sugar, dairy, refined carbohydrates and alcohol.

  4. Eat lighter foods like soups, salads or lightly cooked vegetables and limit animal proteins.

  5. Do gentle exercise like yoga, rebounding or walking outside for 20 – 30 min daily.

  6. Dry brushing for 10 minutes before your shower will stimulate your lymph glands and help your body release toxins.

  7. Water, herbal tea, vegetable broth (like our Dr. Blum’s Detox Broth), raw coconut water and OP Sport are all great options for keeping hydrated.

  8. Strengthen your digestion with probiotics. In our cleanses, we offer a Probiotic coconut kefir shot that is good to take anytime!

  9. Keep a daily journal, noting any changes in your body and mind and emotions. You’ll be surprised how much you’ll learn about yourself.

  10. Most importantly, acknowledge yourself for taking time to strengthen your body and thank yourself for the gift of health!
