It is definitely true to say that our bodies cleanse naturally and constantly. We like to think of our juice cleanse program as an occasional way to pause and reflect from hectic normal life routines—and to take a dietary choice with us. Historically cleansing was a way to bring balance back into people’s lives. So, while it is only being incorporated into dietary practices in the past few years by the masses, cleansing is certainly not a trend.
In our minds, adults can benefit from a cleanse program as a regular part of their lifestyle regimen but no more than once a month. Whether you are a stressed out workaholic or a stay-at-home mum, the truth is that life is no longer as simple as it once was. We are all busy and struggle to find time for ourselves and often our health suffers as a result. Presscription Juice cleanse programmes are designed for adults to enjoy, even those of you who are lactose-intolerant and keep a vegetarian or gluten-free diet. Children under 18 should not participate in our cleansing program. **Please keep in mind that our cleanse programs are NOT appropriate for those of you who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffer from certain medical conditions. Consult your health care provider before starting a cleanse program if you have a medical condition or take medications. Please see questions 3 & 4 for more information.
Our cleanse programs are designed for all healthy people; however, there are certain individuals who should not partake. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not restrict your diet to liquids, as you need extra calories and nutrients in your diet. Consult your health care professional if our drinks are right for you.
The answer to this is variable. Your body knows what to do, so trust it. We try not to focus on weight loss as a goal at Presscription, but we understand that it is important to a lot of people. You might also find that the cleanse actually prompts your body to re-balance itself.
Definitely, just try to be gentle with yourself. You are still getting nutrition, but it is wise to beware of lower volume of foods. You will most likely find that you have lots of energy and if you so desire, go for a light jog or power walk around the neighbourhood. Otherwise it’s always a great idea to stick to yoga or pilates for that added effect of intense breathing to help you maximise your cleanse.
We are totally for adding extra drinks if you feel you are in over your head with just 5 drinks and 1 almond drink per day, but make sure they are healthy! Stay away from carbonated drinks, especially soda, please! You are more than welcome to add extra doses of water with lemon and herbal teas. And if you would like to order extra juices from our site to keep on hand for emergencies, feel free to go ahead and do so.

This is a personal decision that should be discussed with a health care professional. Many people like to cleanse whenever they start to feel seasonal health challenges. This can mean anywhere from once a month to once every three to six months. However, we advocate making Presscription Juices and drinks a part of your daily life, whether you are cleansing or not. Consuming the nutrients in our fresh-pressed drinks on a regular basis will support your system and keep your body in optimal shape, inside and out.
