Total Wellness Cleanse
Q: "What makes this cleanse different from all the rest?"
That should be pretty obvious by now. There is truly nothing like our cleanse anywhere! Not even your local naturopath or nutritionist can provide you with the tools and support that you'll get with our program.
The Total Wellness Cleanse is the ONLY 100% FOOD-BASED cleansing program on the market supplying you with 10 weeks of meal plans and 119 whole food-based cleansing recipes. Sure there are plenty of detox pills and supplements out there, but if you're looking for lasting change and are serious about dramatically improving your health then this is it.
This is only cleansing diet that will give you daily support via email, our Cleanse Group on Facebook, and through hours of our pre-recorded teleclasses. We're at your side 100% of the way to keep you motivated and on-track.
Q: "What do I need for the cleanse?"
Other than food and water, you don't need much. A blender and juicer are helpful but are not required. A food processor and a standard oven and cooktop will be needed.
Q: "What am I allowed to eat during the cleanse?"
Pretty much any plant-based food including vegetables, non-sweet fruit, legumes, non-glutenous grains, and nuts and seeds. Our goal during the initial 14-day cleanse phase is to give your body a break from the foods that impose unneeded digestive and systemic stress. These foods include the 8 toxic foods you'll learn about in the Cleanse Food Guide.
With the arsenal of delicious cleanse recipes you'll be getting you'll wonder why you even ate that group of toxic and inflammatory foods in the first place. After the initial 14-day cleanse phase, you then have the choice to incorporate some of those foods back into your diet if you wish or continue with our 8-week post-cleanse meal plan.
Q: "Do I have to eat raw foods on the cleanse?"
You have the choice. We give you ample flexibility within our cleanse protocol to allow for non-raw, 100% raw, and anywhere in between. Ultimately, you decide what works best for you.
If you're already into raw foods, then this cleanse will tremendously benefit you as one of the main objectives is to alkalize your body to a much greater degree than you might be used to. Typically, many raw food diets call for heavy amounts of natural sugars in the form of dates and sweet fruit and, as such, create more toxic acid in your body. Since one of our goals is to minimize sugar intake, this cleanse will make you feel and look even better than you're accustomed to. And we've got tons of great raw recipes for you as well.
Q: "Are the recipes complicated, require exspensive ingredients, or take a long time to prepare?"
No, no, and no. 90% of the recipes in the cleanse take less than 10 minutes to make and require only everyday ingredients that you can find at your localgrocery store. The other 10% of the recipes take slightly longer to make simply because they require more "cooking" time. Once the inital preparation has been completed (usually a few minutes), you can simply "set them and forget them". A great example of this is our "Black Bean Chili".
Q: "Are you going to sell me any detox or cleanse products?"
Absolutely not! Our approach is through dietary and lifestyle improvements — not "magic formulas".
Q: "Can I still do this cleanse if…"
I'm pregnant, breastfeeding, travelling, or have never done a cleanse before?
Although our program is based on dietary and lifestyle improvements, we recommend that you check with your doctor before getting started if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
However, the Total Wellness Cleanse 30-day guided cleanse is suitable for any healthy individual but will most profoundly and positively affect those who are less healthy.
If you are travelling or have never done a cleanse before, then YES you use this cleanse and benefit from it anywhere in the world - no matter if you're a total newbie or more experienced when it comes to cleansing and your heath. After all, our cleanse is going to greatly improve the health of your body - who couldn't benefit from that?
Q: "Will I lose weight on this cleanse?"
Most likely yes. As your body releases excess toxins, your fat cells (which store the toxins) will diminish in size. Also, because you won't be eating excessive amounts of calories you may create a caloric deficit if you're an active individual. This, in turn, will also help you lose weight. The important thing to remember is that you will lose weight while dramatically enhancing the health of your body.
Q: "What if I don't want to lose weight?"
That's ok as well. Most people who cleanse, while wanting to maintain their weight, might lose a few pounds (usually less than 5 lbs) of unnecessary weight that their body has been holding onto. The key to maintaining your weight on our cleanse is to ensure you incorporate regular strength training and follow our diet plan while perhaps increasing your portion sizes to consume sufficient calories.
Q: "Will there be any "detox" side effects?"
It depends. If you are very toxic (ie. a history of medications, frequent alcohol or caffeine consumption, if you've smoked, or a have been recently ill), then you might experience more noticeable symptoms than someone who is slightly healthier. Such symptoms might include headaches, fatigue, or skin outbreaks (if very toxic). Rest assured that if you experience these symptoms, they do go away after a few days, and then the true benefits are noticed!
