Spring Clean Your Body

Reclaim your Health with our Spring Clease!

 

Are you tired of being tired, blah and/or stressed? Worried about your immunity?  Has emotional eating during lockdown caused you to gain weight?  Or maybe you want to lose a little extra padding before swimsuit season?    

You are still that person who cares about health.  You want to do everything you can to live a long and healthy life and be able to run a marathon or write a book at 80 if you choose.  You know that it takes some intentional work.  You get it.  Health these days can’t be passive.  But you just need a little support. Then keep reading or grab your cleanse here!

 

 

Why Cleanse?

 

While our body is designed to detoxify on it’s own, poor sleep, processed food, stress and many modern habits mean the body can struggle to do this ‘job’ well.  A glass of wine here, a late night there, news watching here, copious screen time there.  You get the idea.
 
Detoxification is about ‘opening all the doors’ of elimination (kidneys, skin, intestines, blood, lymph, and perspiration) before you start detoxifying the liver.   

The liver is your master ‘filter’ and giving it more support will leave you feeling more positive, lighter and with fewer symptoms, including inflammation or pain.

If you don’t improve all channels of elimination, your liver will feel overburdened and you will start to experience headaches and malaise (signs of a healing crisis).  Your skin is your largest detoxification organ and so some people will notice breakouts or rashes.

Detoxification does not mean fasting.


Most people do not have the proper blood sugar control to fast and end up feeling dizzy, hungry and may even find it difficult to participate in everyday activities.

 

Give your Liver a Helping Hand

 

If your liver is overloaded with toxins, your digestion is weak, you are under stress, and you aren’t eating well, your poor liver is likely crying out for a vacation.

When you treat your liver right it pays you back. 

 

Help your liver and detoxification systems work for you and you will:

  • Lose unwanted weight
  • Have more energy
  • Improve your skin- kiss wrinkles, acne, and lacklustre skin goodbye
  • Get shiny hair
  • Improve your Mood and Get back your Mojo
  • Improve allergies
  • Have better digestion

 

Our Spring Cleanse can help you get your eating patterns and liver back on track so you can look and feel your best. 

 

Why our Spring Cleanse is the Best Cleanse (in our humble opinion)

 

There are many cleanses out there from the Master Cleanse to full juice cleanses, but here’s why we created our own:

  • Juice Cleanses: Liquid nutrition has it’s benefits but it is difficult to follow a cleanse when you can’t chew for seven days. The other issue is that liquid-only cleanses may remove toxins too quickly, recirculating them through the body, causing overwhelming detox symptoms.  (common in off-the-shelf cleanse kits)
  • Flexibility:  We have created a program that allows you some flexibility.  If you are a beginner cleanser, you follow the key principles for most days with an option to cleanse faster on some days by picking thinner juices over smoothies.  If you are an experienced cleanser, or you can take it up a notch and do more liquid meals and fewer solid ones.  There is something for everyone.  You can also pick any week during the month of April.
  • Community: We’ve also created a private facebook group to support you!  You will meet like-minded friends, support one another, and have an opportunity to ask questions during our Q&A hours.  And, you will be supported by a Registered Nutritionist!  You can learn about Linda here and Crina here. (Follow her on Instagram at @linda_ljucovic  @balancepointhc.)  Research shows it’s easier to make changes as part of a group.  Check!
  • We are realists. We understand that everyone has things that come up during programs and so we provide options and support for when things don’t go as planned.  We want you to feel successful!
  • Side Effects:  While you may feel headaches or tired initially on a cleanse it should give you more energy once you’re on it for a few days.  We have an option to support your body with a few key supplements.  Being experienced Nutritionists, we know what works and how to support the body well.
  • Cravings!  We will also provide advice for cravings!  Cravings are your body’s way of telling you what’s missing.  We can provide suggestions along the way to keep you feeling well and supported. 

 

Signs you Need a Cleanse:

 

  • Change in skin – wrinkles, lacklustre appearance, acne
  • Dull or brittle hair
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Headaches
  • Poor digestion
  • Cravings
  • Poor immunity, and allergies
  • Mood swings
  • Other imbalances in the body (hormones, etc)


If you have 2 or more of these symptoms, it’s time for a cleanse!  If you want to improve your diet, it’s time for a cleanse! If you want renewed energy and to start the summer off right our spring cleanse can help.  We just can’t afford to be passive with our health these days!

 

How Does this Cleanse Work?


Liquid nourishment with healthy delicious smoothies, juices or soups (once or twice a day depending on your experience)

 

Consuming mostly liquids in the morning and evening allows your body a break from digestion, giving it time to clean house. It also helps you get the nutrients from your food more easily. Sometimes cravings and weight gain come from the body not getting enough nutrients due to a poor diet, leaky gut, or poor digestion. You are not only what you eat, but what you digest.


Nutritious Meals with Easy to Digest Proteins, Healthy fats and Veggies

 

Once or twice a day to fill you up, the spring cleanse allows you to eat healthy meals filled with things like cleaner proteins, vegetables (cooked and raw) and healthy fats. This gives you a psychological break from the cleanse, allowing you to chew, which will keep you on track emotionally and help with cravings.  You can even snack all you want on the right foods!  We avoid grains and legumes as much as possible because they are often heavily sprayed with a pesticide called glyphosate.  It’s not good for our soils or for our health.

Q&A

What if I’m feeling hungry on the cleanse?

The core premise of this program is about adding more beautiful, healing, plant-based foods into your diet. We highly recommend you listen to your body and make sure you’re not depriving yourself. Suggested serving sizes of the juices, smoothies and soups are merely a guide. We encourage you to adjust your intake based on the varying nature of your individual needs and preferences. If you are finding that the serving sizes are not enough, then feel free to increase the amount so that you are not left feeling hungry. If you feel short on healthy fats, protein or greens, add them into your smoothies.

After all, this cleanse is about nourishing and cleansing, not deprivation or restriction. If you find that you just want to ‘chew’ something or still feel the need for something else to feel satiated, we have come up with a list of approved snacks which we highly recommend you consider, especially if you are new to cleansing, or if you simply have a healthy appetite.

• Vegetable sticks (e.g. celery, carrot, peppers (capsicums), cucumbers, green beans)

• Sauerkraut or fermented vegetables

• Low sugar fruits like avocados, grapefruits and fresh or frozen berries.

• Steamed green vegetables with olive oil and lemon juice (broccoli, asparagus, carrot, beans and other nonstarchy green vegetables)

• Miso soup • Any fresh fruits or vegetables that you have around!

 

What about exercise on the cleanse?

We recommend that when cleansing you keep your exercise routine as gentle as possible. This is a time for your body to heal and rejuvenate. Think breath work, walking, gentle yoga and stretching. 

 

What sort of detox symptoms should I expect?

Detoxing and cleansing is unique for everyone. However, there are a few common symptoms that are often experienced by many people that we wanted to highlight to you.

  • If you’re feeling extremely hungry or constantly lightheaded, please refer to the “what if I’m feeling hungry” question above.
  • If you’re suffering from headaches or aches and pains, it could be that you’re going through withdrawal symptoms from eating a large amount of sugar, processed foods or caffeine.
  • You may also notice your bowel movements change. The way each person’s body reacts is completely unique; however, you can expect some changes in frequency, color, and consistency during the cleanse.
  • If your symptoms are more severe, then please stop and let’s chat. This cleanse shouldn’t be about toughing it out. It’s about respecting your body. The most important part to this cleanse is about respecting your body and tuning in to what your emotions and feelings could be telling you. We are intelligent beings and our bodies are continuously communicating to us — if we are willing to listen.

 

What if I want to quit?

It’s ok to feel like you want to quit. Honor that feeling and don’t beat yourself up. Here are a few suggestions for when the going gets tough:

• Make another smoothie, soup, or juice

• Try some gentle exercise or breathwork to oxygenate and alkalize your blood

• Drink some more water

• Finally, if you’re still feeling stuck have a snack from the section above

Be proud of yourself for participating in this cleanse and be kind to your body, both physically and emotionally.

You’re doing an amazing thing for yourself!

 

If I “cheat” and eat something not on the menu, have I failed?

Please remember – you can’t fail at this!

Although we recommend you give the full liquid meals a try, if you need more food, that’s okay.  Even if you continue eating your normal food intake and simply add these juice and smoothie recipes to your day, you’ll be providing your body with a huge influx of nutrients.. There is no losing in this cleanse. Do what feels right for you and your body. Experiment with trying these recipes and you will still get huge benefits! You are doing something wonderful for your body by providing it with all this beautiful liquid nutrition.

 

What foods should I try my best to avoid on the cleanse?

This cleanse is designed to be free from refined sugars, wheat, grains, dairy, meat, and many other common allergens (like soy, peanuts, eggs, and seafood). It’s best to avoid these foods when on the cleanse.

Additionally, everyone’s body is different. We all process foods differently and we have different tolerances to individual ingredients. You are completely unique and we need to respect that. If there is something that doesn’t sound good or you know it’s an ingredient that you don’t tolerate very well, please don’t include it.  If you’d like to find out which foods to avoid, consider Electrodermal Screening to identify food sensitivities.

You have not failed by listening to your body. In fact, that’s a huge success!

 

What if I’m currently taking medications?

If you’re taking any medications, make sure you consult your physician or health care professional before taking part in this Cleanse.

 

What if I really feel like something warm to drink in the morning or throughout the day?

You can always have a detox tea, or additionally, try our creamy, delicious Maca Latte. It’s a great substitute for coffee, if you’re feeling like you need a fix.

 

What if I don’t like avocado?

You can use coconut oil instead, as this provides a source of healthy fats to the smoothie, that would otherwise be delivered from the avocado.
