I got all gung-ho and decided I needed a body cleanse. I wanted a real one this time. I had used the EasyCleanse, but I decided this was going to be a fasting/juice cleanse. So I opted for the 3 DAY JUICE CLEANSE. We can thank Dr. Christopher for this. Dr. Christopher felt this was a great cellular cleanse also as it went so deep. And it is quick. And the last few things I have read suggest that the body can manufacture it's own stem cells when fasting is involved. Fascinating!
For 3 days you drink organic apple juice. That's all. No foods, just juice. And it isn't that hard. I don't do complicated or too hard.
If you choose to drink water, make sure it is distilled. But don't substitute it for the juice.
You will be drinking about 3 gallons of juice, one a day.
Start out with 2 oz. olive oil and 2 oz. lemon juice, organic as possible, in the morning. Then top it off with 8 oz. of apple juice. One half hour later, another 8 oz of apple juice, 1/2 hour later another shot of apple juice. At night you add 2 oz of olive oil with 2 oz of lemon juice. Then go to bed and lay on your right side for the first half hour. This helps the gall bladder. Continue this regimen for the next 2 days and nights.
This gives the gall bladder a chance to rest and rejuvenate. If you are having some gall bladder issues we add a couple of herbs to this regimen.
I found it hard to remember to drink 8 oz of juice every 1/2 hour. So I would drink LOTS of juice at the top of every waking hour.
Oh, I have heard it all!
Don't you get HUNGRY?!
No. You're drinking apple juice all day long. But you will start to think about all the foods you are going to eat when you get done. By the third day you feel ready to eat, just hang on. If you are ravenous, just have a few slices of organic apple in the evening.
Do you get diarrhea?
No. There isn't any fiber. The other problem could arise. So if you get constipated, just add an extra dose of the olive oil/lemon juice.
Don't you get tired of just juice?
Yes and no. It is easy. But for variety I get a cider and a different apple juice so there is a taste difference. Fresh pressed is really good, but for sure get organic.
Do you get sick?
No. But on day 2 you will have a bit of a headache because there is a lot of toxins releasing. This is a positive sign! Just keep going forward and drink.
How do you get the olive oil/lemon juice down? Doesn't that make you sick?
Easy..just mix and swallow and chase it with...you guessed it..more apple juice. This is such a treat for the gall bladder. You WILL pass stones if you have any. Look for little greenish-rounded shapes, like chunks of little peas, in the toilet.
Do you feel different when it is over?
Somewhat. You will not want all those foods you thought sounded so good. You are going to be a bit more protective of what goes into the body you just cleansed. And those strange little cravings may have disappeared. The food you do eat is going to taste so wonderful. Flavors of foods will be intense and satisfying, at least they do for me.
Should everybody do this?
Yes. We take a bath or shower regularly. This is a cleansing program for the inside of the body. Take out the garbage. The organs and glands need those toxins pulled out so they can work more efficiently. It is important to get the body to the best place possible to avoid illnesses. Clearing out toxins removes the cause of much illness.
Alright. You can do this. It isn't hard.
Have a healthy happy week!
