All about Detoxing

There are many different reasons why people choose to do a detox.  Every one of us are subject to a number of chemicals and toxins in our lifestyles, PLUS we are also subject to indulgences in our day to day world!  A good detox is a chance for your body to have a break from constant exposure from chemicals, toxins and overall naughties from your food and drink.

The Goddess Cleanses complements your own body's detoxifying process and allows your body to do its business very efficient and effectively.  We use juices as way of maximising the naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and raw enzymes and using them in large doses to help cleanse and renew.  Just think about it, when you eat a salad, you might get about 1/3 kilo of fruit and veg - 300g of food.  Juice that up and you will only end up with about 200ml of juice (less than a cup).  So if you are drinking 500ml of juice for morning tea, you are having the equivalent of 3 salads just for a snack!  Try chewing your way through that, every day for 5 days - you might need a jaw transplant at the end.

So juice them up, and you can quadruple your intake!  Plus they require very little effort to digest.  This means that juices are quickly and easily absorbed into your body, and you can efficiently get the most from them!  6kgs of fruit and vegetables every day can be nothing but good for you, right?

Whilst there are a few options available on the market, like herbal supplements, lemon juice/syrup meal replacements, sachet fibre supplements, other juices, or food, we are different because we use juice and we do it fresh each day. 

Everyone experiences overindulgences to some degree, and even the most disciplined of us get off track. Typically, there are a couple of reasons why you would cleanse:

Symptoms/Benefits

Do you want to feel clean, light and healthy?  Is the pope catholic, hell yes!  Plus you could lose a couple of kgs, brighten up your skin, your mood and sky rocket your energy levels.  Your body goes through a natural cleanse process, and our juices have been designed to help your body through the process with fresh produce full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. 

Each of us have different levels of toxicity, and we each deal with it in a different way.  Everyone is different and depending on your current diet and lifestyle, symptoms may present differently. Common symptoms for  people are: runny nose, tiredness, fever, flu like symptoms, headache, etc. Heavy coffee drinkers, smokers, recreational drug takers, or heavy drinkers will definitely experience these symptoms, and may find the headaches quite difficult.  Other people have been known to experience nausea and vomiting.  This is not an unusual symptom, and it is hard to predict who is going to react in a certain way as we all have very different diets and lifestyles.   Do you drink coffee?  Check out our blog post on what could happen - here.

But if you don't get severe symptoms, don't be concerned, everyone's body is different.  Ordinarily coffee drinkers and regular alcohol drinkers will get the worst symptoms (sorry, that is most of us).  If things feel totally normal, then your body is quite possibly very adept at removing toxins rather than storing them.  You are very lucky!

On average people lose between 2-3 kgs on the 5 day program, but it isn’t a weight loss program. Other fabulous benefits may include:

 How the program works

During the program you get 6 fresh juices/soups/smoothies made from fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, every day for your 3 or 5 day program. The 6 juices each day meet your daily energy requirements, containing about 1700 or less calories across the day (including natural fats, carbs and proteins). The juices are designed to be had in a specific order based on your digestion patterns, and each juice has certain cleansing, healing, protective and regenerative properties from its all natural ingredients.

Goddess Nutritional juices are 500mls each, and they contain a range of different fruit and vegetables – anything from apples, oranges, melons, cucumber, spinach, parsley, mint, lentils, beetroot, lemons, almonds, linseeds, cashew nuts and everything in between!

You only have these juices, herbal teas and lots of water. Each day we also give you a little container of seeds to chew on (this will get your jaws moving so you don’t miss chewing too much!)

Every day you will receive a “Cleanse Buddy” guide, together with daily email information updates of your Schkinny Nutritional Cleanse program. These have some really useful information on what the body is going through. The Cleanse buddy is explains what is happening to the body, just like there is a friend with you who has done it all before. The “Cleanse Buddy” guide will also have some Do’s and Don’ts for your cleanse. We want our customers to know that we are here, and we want to be the support to help them get through this. It really is such an awesome experience!

During a 3, 4 or 5 day Cleanse, you will also receive a little starter gift bag.  This includes some detox tea bags, a detox bath soak, and a tub of psyllium husk for added fibre.

We deliver to your home in the mornings anywhere between 5am and 8am for eastern Sydney addresses and afternoons to western Sydney.
