3 Day Cleanse
Question: Why does the same juice appear to vary?
A: Our juices are unpasteurised and handmade, so at times settling, taste and colour variations may occur. Many fruit and vegetables vary in colour and sweetness, depending on the type and season, and have varying amounts of antioxidants and enzymes which, in turn, can cause differences in colour and flavour. Because we use the freshest organic ingredients available, the juice can vary in colour and taste each time you purchase it.
Love Thy Juice juices are not pasteurised and have no additives, and only additives can prevent the natural settling process. Just shake your healthy juice before drinking.
Question: I have a specific health condition or am pregnant can I have a juice?
A: Always check with your health care provider before changing your diet suddenly. If you are pregnant organic cold pressed juices are a great supplement to your current diet but should not be the sole source of nutrition. If you have any questions or concerns please speak to your health care provider first. If you have any specific allergies or conditions please let us know at time of ordering.
Question: Can I drink juices if I have a gluten or lactose allergy?
A: Yes. There are no animal, dairy or gluten products in our juices. If you have any other allergies or conditions please first check with your health care provider and let us know at time of ordering.
Question: Can I drink other drinks (alcohol or soft drink) during a cleanse?
A: That’s a solid ‘No’. We don’t recommend it during a cleanse - give your body the break it deserves. Try to drink water with lemon, coconut
Question: How should I store and drink my juice?
A: Store your juice in the fridge. Drink the juice slowly to increase nutrient absorption, water or herbal or green tea instead.
Question: Does it really matter what order I drink the juices?
A: Yes the order in which you consume your juices directly effects how you absorb, and digest nutrients. When your stomach is empty first thing in the morning, it’s able to digest whatever you put in it much more than if you consumed something prior. That is why we recommend a lemon juice cleanse shot first thing in the morning followed by a highly nutritious green juice first. That said, don't worry if you do have to switch it up a bit, just aim to have the morning juices first.
Question: I have a function that I can’t be drinking a juice at, if I eat, will it mess up the cleanse?
A: No. Try to stick to plant based and where possible raw foods rather than go all out. We recommend you schedule your cleanse to try avoid tempting social events.
Question: Is it fine to exercise while cleansing?
A: Definitely. It is a myth that if you don’t eat a lot, you will lack energy. You will be amazed to see that the more you allow your digestion to rest, the more your energy gets a lift. The energy that is usually spent on digestion is now yours for the taking, so grab it and go for a lap around the block! Remember- you are feeding your cells nourishing plant based goodness!
Question: What are detox symptoms? Will I get them?
A: During a cleanse, the body is essentially tearing out all of the "bad stuff" and rebuilding with new material. To make room for that new material, the "bad stuff" needs to leave; how it makes its exit may cause detox symptoms. For example: when the body eliminates coffee, symptoms usually include headaches, nervousness, and shakiness. When protein, meats, and fats are eliminated, you may experience skin blemishes, body odor, etc.
Question: Can I do a juice cleanse and eat food too?
A: The benefits of a cleanse will be reduced if you eat solid food in addition to the juices.
The idea of a cleanse is to only consume the juice so that your digestive system has time to rest. However, if you want to supplement your cleanse with food stick to a plant based diet - plant based food is great for digestion and packed with vitamins and minerals. If you have any questions on diet and nutrition please contact us or pop into our store. We have a number of resources available to help you understand the benefits of plant based foods and associated nutrition.
If you are hungry and feel you need more food we have organic soups, and smoothies within store and are happy to add in as an additional cost.
Question: What do I eat when I have finished with my cleanse?
A: Two points here. The first one regards prep work.
Before any cleanse, you should lighten up – gradually. If you eat everything, e.g. meat, cheese, processed sugars, alcohol, etc, you should slowly eliminate those a few days before and incorporate lighter food. Include fruits and vegetables, fish instead of meat and raw/steamed food instead of fried. Try to eliminate all alcohol a few days before and focus on hydrating. The same rule also applies to the post-cleanse menu. Stay away from dense, processed foods. Go for plant based, unprocessed foods and you cant go wrong.
