What is a juice cleanse?
A strict juice fast, juice cleanse, or juice detox is considered a period when only freshly pressed juice, water, and herbal teas are consumed. Depending on personal preferences, fresh fruit and/or vegetable broth might be added. Like any fast, it is recommended to take a period of at least 3 to 7 days to prepare for your detox by clearing out your diet already. Switch to organic or good quality locally grown produce wherever possible. Consume more raw and cooked fruit and vegetables instead of proteins like meat, eggs, fish, etc. Quit coffee, alcohol, sugar, and smoking. Stay hydrated by consuming good quality water and young coconuts. If coffee is part of your daily routine, wean yourself from caffeine with green tea or yerba mate, followed by caffeine-free herbal teas. Take your time when coming out of the fast and start by eating small amounts of fruit, salad, vegetables, and soups before continuing to proteins, grains, and dairy (if consuming).

There are juice retreats with accommodation and other perks included as well as options for home delivery. It is the perfect way to detox in self-isolation with minimal pressure for social gatherings, so you can fully immerse yourself in your experience. The ultimate choice is yours, but the location, price, ingredients, ease of communication, and delivery are all valid points to consider when deciding whose services to use.

What to expect from a juice fast?
A juice fast is a detox, and everyone's body will have a different reaction depending on what's going on inside of your body and mind. Giving the digestion a rest will quite likely bring up some buried issues to digest. Often you might feel worse before you feel better. The lack of food will cause parasites and candida to start rebelling and die off as well as stored toxins to be released from your organs and fat cells. If not eliminated fast enough, the toxins might cycle around your body and cause more harm. Headaches, bad breath, coating on the tongue, nausea, tiredness, constipation or diarrhea, emotional and skin sensitivity, and sometimes even mild fever are all normal initial reactions.
If you have been on a healing journey for a while you are probably familiar with what is normal for your body to go through when adjusting to a higher vibration of being. Energetically raw fruits and vegetables have a higher vibration than cooked food and acidic drinks. If you are new, be extra attentive to yourself and if the symptoms get too unbearable stretch the process out by eating a bit and extending your preparation period for the fast. The same advice goes for people who under Ayurvedic constitutions identify as being high Vata – generally the airy, thin, anxious, model-like body types.
It is very important to observe your emotions and feelings especially because the intense fluctuations in your blood sugar level while consuming a juice will give a beautiful opportunity to recycle and flow through them with curiosity and love. It is normal to experience intense sadness, crying, anger, grief, joy and peace. On a positive note you will also quite likely hit moments of amazing mental clarity, emotional euphoria and bliss accompanied by a surge of energy and motivation.
What are the benefits?
Our body rebuilds itself constantly. A juice fast gives it an opportunity to do exactly that while getting rid of any built-up baggage. Results vary, but visible benefits might be weight loss, brighter eyes, better skin, hair, and nails. Other benefits might include better sleep, mental clarity, more energy, mobility of joints, better digestion, and an overall lighter feeling. Your taste buds are more sensitive, and you'll likely prefer to give yourself better quality nourishment. You will be more aware and connected to yourself.
What are the challenges?
The main challenge is to support your body's elimination of toxins via skin, colon, liver, kidneys, blood, lungs, and lymphatics. Unpleasant symptoms appear when one of these interconnected systems gets overburdened or has a weakness already. For example, constipation can result in swollen glands, sore throat, or congestion in the lungs. Awareness of your own reactions, body and mental state, and knowledge of available solutions are the keys to master this flush in a state of heightened emotionality and fluctuating energy levels.
How to enhance the experience
Elimination. Colonics, enemas, psyllium husk (preferably with an anti-parasitic herbal mix), bentonite clay, activated charcoal, vitamin C, magnesium, herbal teas.
Baths: with Epsom salts, essential oils, spices and herbs, bentonite clay.
Skincare: dry brushing, abhyanga oil massage before the shower, mild and organic products.
Liver: coffee enemas, Dandelion tea, castor oil packs.
Lymphatic system: massage (the author visited Ida's Body and Soul for reflexology and abdominal massage), dry brushing and jumping/bouncing.
Kidneys: Water and coconut water, reiki, massage.
Lungs: breathing exercises, yoga Nidra, essential oils.
Emotional and mental: meditation, journaling, allowing yourself to rest, counseling, observing your emotions flowing through your body without attachment or judgment.
Summary of the experience
My intention was to ease PMS symptoms, balance female hormones, and release unhelpful stuck energies during this time of solitude in this healing haven of Bali. I experienced almost all the symptoms mentioned above. As above, so below. By day 4 and 5, the world mirrored some pretty intense incidents indicating old issues around topics of the lower chakras around grounding, safety, and sexuality. I am happy to let those clear and air out and keep on the journey while very carefully and intuitively coming out of the juice fast. Word of advice: Just keep breathing, this too shall pass.

Juice and Shine
Juice cleansing is the best way to give your body a break from the process of digestion. This break gives our body the opportunity to go deeper into the detoxification process because it is not busy with the process of digesting the last few meals we ate – instead, it can focus on rebuilding, rejuvenating, rebalancing, processing and eliminating the accumulated waste that is stored deeper in the tissues and cells of the body.
