Cleanse Protocol

Before you begin, please review the cleanse + restore supplements so you know what to expect for the next 30-days of the cleanse program.  

Grocery List

Smoothies

Smoothies are a quick and easy way to get some pack-filled nutrients into your diet while supporting the detoxification process.   It's important to get lots of fiber while cleansing, so you might want to blend your juices instead of using a juicer. When making smoothie recipes, consider these ingredients as your base:  

Spinach
Kale
Chard​
Beets

Avocado
Blueberries
Raspberries

Strawberries
Apples (green)
Pineapples (frozen)

Water, ice, unsweetened almond milk, or coconut water is often added to the smoothie to thin it out and make it easier to blend.  Also, keep these superfood staples on hand for an easy and intense nutrition boost to any of your smoothie recipes:

  • Hemp seeds: vegan protein source with a mild, nutty flavor

  • Flaxseed: rich in fiber, protein, and omega-3s

  • Chia seeds: fiber-loaded and protein-rich to control blood sugar

Tea and Water

Hydration is essential not only for the liver and kidneys to be more effective at eliminating toxins, but it also helps with the withdrawal (die-off) symptoms. Be sure to avoid caffeinated beverages as these can cause dehydration.  Here is a list of options you can choose from:

Green tea
Filtered water
Herbal tea
​Coconut water

Nuts and Seeds

Seeds and nuts are a great snack and a good source of protein.  Remember to keep some of these while you're on-the-go.  Also, consider these gluten-free grains as a staple for any meal. 

Walnuts
Almonds
Pumpkin Seeds

Sunflower Seeds
Pistachios
Pecan​

Quinoa
​Wild Rice

Dairy

Some dairy is easier to digest than others such as sheep and goat cheese.  However, if you are lactose intolerant, it's best to avoid dairy altogether.  

Eggs (free-range, grass-fed)
Goat/Sheep Cheese
Plain Kefir (no sugar)​

 

Dairy Substitutes
Almond Milk
Coconut Milk

Oat Milk

Restorative Lifestyle

Sleep

Adequate rest is needed for your body to clear out toxic waste, restore the endocrine system, liver, kidneys, and other bodily functions. 

Rest, take naps if needed, and support your adrenals with an early bedtime routine such as taking a bath, diffusing essential oils, or reading a book.

Managing Mood

Our emotions are literally chemical molecules (hormones) that are triggered by our thoughts.  Anytime we experience a negative emotion for too long, it can become trapped within the body causing physical signs and symptoms.  Mediation combined with essential oils is a powerful way to reduce the mental chatter that causes stress, anxiety, worry, and other negative thought patterns. If you’re new to meditation, start with just 5 minutes per day and work your way up to 20 minutes or more.  It will help you feel more in control of your thoughts and emotions and help you experience greater joy, love, and happiness, ultimately bringing your health back into balance.

Exercise

Exercise is a great way to assist the body in detoxification.  It also gives your body more energy, stamina, and increases your metabolism.  Get in the habit of increasing your heart rate at least 30 minutes per day.  Here are some exercise recommendations:

Yoga
Pilates
Hiking
Stretching
Lifting Weights
Treadmill
Elliptical
