It’s no secret that our environment is growing increasingly toxic. On a daily basis, we are exposed to pollutants via the air we breathe, our water supply, and what we put into our bodies (processed or conventionally-grown foods, pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol, tobacco, etc.). We also produce toxins internally through normal metabolic processes. Stress, which our society deals with on an almost constant basis, also acts as a toxin in the body. Toxins can be physical, mental, emotional or energetic in nature.
Fortunately, our bodies were intelligently designed, equipped with organs that help remove toxins we encounter and produce. These organs of elimination are called emunctories. Our primary emunctories are the liver/gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, lungs, skin and emotions. The primary organs of elimination do an excellent job of removing toxicity from our bodies until: they become overburdened, and their efforts get “backed up,” and/or, their physiological functioning is sub optimal. Usually, it’s some combination of the two.
Think of the body as a bucket. Toxins and stress fill up the bucket, and the organs of elimination, the emunctories, drain the bucket. What happens if the bucket is filling up with toxins faster than they’re being drained? The bucket overflows, and you experience signs and symptoms of disease. You get sick.
A juice cleanse, helps to address both methods contributing to the build-up of toxins in the body. By giving your body digestive rest during a juice cleanse, energy that normally would have been used for digestion gets redirected towards healing efforts all over the body, including the processing and release of toxins. Additionally, by consuming the nutrient equivalent of over 10 POUNDS of produce each day, your body will be provided with ample vitamins, minerals, enzymes, flavonoids, and antioxidants to promote optimal physiological functioning. And because these nutrients are obtained from whole vegetables and fruits, in the most natural form possible, your body will simply excrete what it doesn't need or use. Lastly, a juice cleanse inherently means you’re decreasing your exposure to toxins by taking a break from eating processed, nutrient-depleted foods and indulging in your vices, like caffeine, sodas, tobacco, alcohol, or sugary foods.
Below are some of the incredible health benefits people may experience from juice cleanses:

- Increased energy and restful sleep

- Clearer and more vibrant skin, hair, and eyes
