It’s finally happening!!
After saying ‘I want to do a cleanse’, I’m actually gonna do a cleanse tomorrow. Not just words anymore. Why?
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
Mind, body and soul, I believe they affect each other in one way or another. I’m now 27 and I never really gave my body a break. A well-deserved break! I’m addicted to sugar, I’ve always been a sweet tooth. But it is something that needs to change. I don’t sleep that well and having to get up every weekday at 5.15 am is starting to take its toll. A healthier body and a healthier me is a must for me right now.
A cleanse might not change it all, but I believe it is a start. It’s a way to release accumulated toxins and at the same time my system will be flooded with raw and natural juices; lots of vitamins and enzymes. I finally found a company in Belgium who provides cold-pressed juices: ‘JusJus‘ based in Antwerp. I know quite a lot of people in the United States who do cleanses with ‘Pressed Juicery’, so I was very pleased when I discovered JusJus.
Since I don’t have any experience with cleanses at all, but I do want to have some effect, I decided to start with a three day cleanse. Basically all my meals, caffeinated and alcoholic drinks will be replaced with 6 raw cold-pressed juices a day. So that means 18 juices during my three day cleanse. Cold-pressed juices are obtained by using high pressure exerted through a hydraulic press. This way the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and other vital elements are completely and gently extracted. Cold-pressed juices is also the only method of juicing that enables juices to be bottled, without preservatives, and still have a 72hour shelf life. I opted for more green juices, to limit the fruit sugars.
One average juice takes more than 1.5 kilos of fruit and vegetables to make. And above all, all produce is sourced from local and international farmers that follow strict regulated guidelines (no GMOs, no pesticides, additives is used to grow them). So each day I will consume about 9 kilos of fruit and vegetables!!
I’m aware that there might be some side effects like headaches. People might say that it’s a waste of time or money. But I say ‘Don’t judge, if you haven’t tried it.’ It’s something I’m doing for myself and my body. So I’m ok with spending some money on it. It’s something I want to try because I feel that my body needs it right now.
I’m totally ready for my three day cleanse! 🙂 And hopefully I’ll be energetic and healthier than before! Fingers crossed! 🙂
