How to Prepare For The Cleanse
Starting Your Cleanse
Take a deep breath and get ready give your body a liquid dose of sunshine and happiness. Start your morning with Nekter Cleanse Bottle #1. Wait 2 hours (or until you feel hungry) and move on to Bottle #2. Continue drinking Bottles #1-6 on your first day. Give yourself a hug as you drink Bottle #6 because this is your last drink each day. Bottle #6, otherwise known as “desert”, is designed to fill you up and get you through the night. Press the delete button on coffee and switch to green tea to accompany your cleanse drinks throughout the day to help flush out the toxins.
Follow these directions daily as described for the length of your cleanse. Make sure your drinks are kept cool at all times - either in your insulated cooler bag while traveling or in your refrigerator at home or work.
During the Cleanse
The great thing about cleansing is you will start to notice a change in your system, your skin, and your mood during the Cleanse. Depending on the amount of toxins built up in your system, if you have prepared both physically and mentally prior to the Cleanse, you will see positive results as soon as Day 3.
Preparing for the Cleanse is just as important as the Cleanse itself. What you eat prior to the Cleanse is a huge factor determining your symptoms during the Cleanse. Some symptoms are completely normal, so no need to stress. You may get a headache, some light-headedness, fatigue, constipation or diarrhea. These are very typical as the toxins are being released from your body. If you prepare for the Cleanse with a healthy diet you may find yourself with minimal or no symptoms, but have increased energy and better mood. Now that’s something to drink to!
During the Cleanse, if you are feeling like you are starving and just can’t take another minute, eat a handful or raw almonds or half of an avocado smashed and rolled up in a few leaves of lettuce. This should satisfy the need to munch. Cut back on exercise if you need to, or drink a small dose of caffeinated tea if your headache feels unbearable.
The most important thing is that you made the commitment, and although it may not seem easy, just remind yourself that you are just days away from feeling like a NEW YOU! The feeling of accomplishment you will have after the Cleanse will match the positive effects you will see in yourself.
After the Cleanse
Congratulations! You must be feeling pretty green right now – because you are practically a freshly picked, glowing vegetable! All the amazing fruits and vegetables, antioxidants and nutrients you have consumed are putting you at the top of Healthy Hill. You should be feeling a difference in your mood, your energy level, and seeing a difference in your skin. Ooh La La!
After basking in the greatness of your newfound euphoria, let’s continue on this Green Bus and talk about what to do now. Since your liquid detox, it’s best to slowly reintroduce whole foods into your system. Start with lightly steamed vegetables and fresh fruits and then gradually add healthy nuts and other sources of protein. If you can, continue with a juice or two for the first few days in addition to light meals. Use the Nekter Cleanse experience as a springboard to make better choices for your body. Say goodbye to processed foods and instead introduce lean meats, dairy, wheat, soy and good sugars one at a time. You might find that those items that you gave up during the Cleanse caused allergies or wreaked havoc on your intestines. By introducing them one at a time, you get the opportunity to “test” them after a cleanse. And if you can, avoid them altogether.
This is a new beginning for you! Enjoy the energy and do your best to keep your body going on this positive journey!
