Not sure if you’re ready to commit to Cleanse Your Body, Cleanse Your Life? We highly recommend you read these FAQs before signing up.
[title size=”3″]Does this program have to be done in three consecutive weeks?[/title]
Yes. Please do this program when you can commit three weeks to it. This program was designed to be 21 days for very specific reasons and it won’t be as effective if it’s done on and off.
Everyone seems to preach that it takes 21 days to break a habit. I always wondered where this magic number came from?
I think I have tracked down the source. In the preface to his 1960 book ‘Psycho-cybernetics’, Dr Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon turned psychologist wrote:
“It usually requires a minimum of about 21 days to effect any perceptible change in a mental image. Following plastic surgery it takes about 21 days for the average patient to get used to his new face. When an arm or leg is amputated the “phantom limb” persists for about 21 days. People must live in a new house for about three weeks before it begins to “seem like home”. These, and many other commonly observed phenomena tend to show that it requires a minimum of about 21 days for an old mental image to dissolve and a new one to jell.”
Please note however, that this program was designed not to interfere with everyday life, and outside of circumstances such as vacationing, a wedding, competing in the Olympics, etc. you should be able to complete the program without having to take any breaks from normal activities such as work, exercise, events and social activities.
[title size=”3″]What if I have questions during this program?[/title]
You can always email me with any questions – email@example.com. If it feels appropriate, I encourage you to reach out to other cleansers on our Cleanse Your Body Cleanse Your Life Facebook page.
[title size=”3″]Will I lose weight on this program?[/title]
Weight-loss will absolutely happen on this program, but it isn’t the sole reason for doing it. Each person has different levels of toxicity, health issues, genetic history and hormonal patterns. Some people will not begin to release inflammation and extra weight until they have found their equilibrium well into the program.
I have included a cleanse note on extra things you can do if your main goal is weight loss. If you follow this program, it will absolutely occur.
One of the best things you can do for weight-loss is hide your scale until the end. Don’t stress yourself out by weighing yourself everyday. Just remember, how you feel is a more accurate measure of success. Instead of numbers on the scale, focus on your energy level, sleep patterns, digestion, elimination, mood, skin, and clarity of thoughts.
[title size=”3″]What kind of detox symptoms can I expect?[/title]
This cleanse program is not your typical all raw and/or juice cleanse so you should not have the typical uncomfortable cleanse symptoms. Cleanse symptoms vary depending on how many toxins your tissues are holding. They may include things like: headache, bloating, gas, diarrhea, nausea, sweats, PMS-like symptoms, and more. Just remember, it is temporary. Fresh air, filtered water with lemon, sleep, moving your body and taking a hot bath are all things that will help. If you have symptoms that are concerning, always call your doctor.
[title size=”3″]Can I do this program if I am pregnant or nursing?[/title]
I do not recommend cleansing while pregnant or nursing. Cleansing is a process that stirs up a lot of toxins in your body and when your body is supporting another life, it could be dangerous to let those toxins run wild.
However, if you are trying to get pregnant, this is an amazing program to put your body and health in perfect shape to support another life.
[title size=”3″]Can I exercise while doing this program?[/title]
Yes, absolutely. I hope you do! Cleanse Your Body, Cleanse Your Life is a very nutrient-dense program and should give you more energy than usual. Certain exercise is a very important aspect of cleansing the toxins from the body and the mind so I highly encourage it.
Yoga, walking, swimming, dance, bicycling, even cleaning the house – these are all wonderful ways to keep the body active and keep the lymph flowing which will definitely aid the cleansing process and assist your body in burning fat and keeping lean muscle, without adding too much stress.
If you are training for a marathon, triathlon or anything that is considered an extreme physical activity, I highly recommend that you DO NOT do this program.
Cleansing requires energy and we want to make sure that the body has enough of it to fully cleanse.
[title size=”3″]Can I do this program while taking antibiotics?[/title]
Cleansing is an excellent supplement to antibiotics. While the antibiotics are busy killing off all the bacteria in your system, both good and bad, the cleanse will be providing your body with the nutrients necessary to replenish the good bacteria and defend against the regrowth of bad bacteria. Extended cleanses are great for strengthening your immune system to keep you healthy in the future.
[title size=”3″]Can I do the program if I have a health concern?[/title]
I would check with your doctor before starting any type of cleanse program. Also, you can contact me to ask about any health questions or concerns.
[title size=”3″]Can I continue to take supplements that I was taking prior to being on the program?[/title]
If you are taking supplements under a doctor’s or nutritionist’s care, I would continue taking them. If not, you can contact me to see if you need them or if they would interfere with the supplements that I recommend.
[title size=”3″]What supplements should I take after I complete the program?[/title]
All of the supplements I recommend on this cleanse can be taken on an on-going basis after you have completed the program. They will only enhance your health, weight loss and well-being.
Supplements simply help bridge the gap between what your body needs and what’s lacking from your daily diet. Everyone is different, and there is no correct formula of supplements that’s right for everyone. If you’d like to talk with me about your diet, lifestyle, and what supplements might be best to include for you, feel free to contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org.
[title size=”3″]How many calories will I be eating on the program?[/title]
The simple answer is: I do not believe in counting calories. Counting cleanse calories is very different from counting regular calories. Your body knows how to use each and every calorie and assimilate all the nutrients in the raw and real foods and juices you will be consuming.
Cleansing is about shifting your focus from ‘calorie counting’ to ‘nutrient counting.’ A cleanse floods your body with live enzymes and nutrients so you will be satisfied with less food.
[title size=”3″]How do I monitor my portion control?[/title]
Everyone will be different, but a good rule of thumb is what is commonly called a Buddha Bowl. This Zen idea enables you to control portions and adapt your eating habits without much stress. The concept is very simple. Your entire serving of food fits into this one bowl: your cupped hands being the general size.
If you’re still hungry 20 minutes later (once your brain has had time to register fullness), you can have a second (smaller) helping, but you might feel completely satisfied, yet light and energized!
[title size=”3″]When should I NOT cleanse?[/title]
You are the best judge of your body’s needs. If you feel bloated, tired, run-down, achy, have a lot of blemishes and any other symptoms of not feeling well, you are a perfect candidate for this program but I advise you to allow yourself to ease into it by taking my suggestions and incorporating them into your lifestyle before embarking on the program. Drink more water, eat more whole-foods, cut out the dairy and the gluten, etc for a week or two before beginning the program. This will allow you to have a more effective experience.
If you feel like your ‘normal’ self, go ahead and cleanse. If it doesn’t feel right to you, don’t do it. Cleansing should never add stress to your life, it should help to remove it! If you have any health concerns, I always think you should check with your doctor before starting the program.

I am a certified holistic nutritionist but I am not a doctor or scientist. This program was designed based on my many years of research, my experience with personal clients, and my work designing the many restaurant-based cleanse programs I have put together in the Los Angeles area.
This program was created to be suitable for most otherwise healthy people. However, everyone is different. The way you react to this program may be significantly different from someone else’s experience. Please use your best judgment when it comes to your health and safety and do not continue anything that makes you uncomfortable or sick. If you have medical concerns, you should always consult with your own doctor.
I believe in cleansing as a way of healing your body and mind, but this program is not to be used in place of any medication or treatment as prescribed by your health care provider. This program is based upon my personal experience and is intended for the sharing of knowledge and nutritional information. You should consult with a physician or health care provider before beginning any nutritional program.
Please discuss with your physician or health care provider any changes in supplements and whether or not it is safe to add the supplements recommended in this program to your current regime.
