Frequently Asked Questions
Before your cleanse
During your cleanse
Stay on schedule to keep detox symptoms at bay. We number your juices, so you'll know what to drink when. Drink six 16-ounce juices a day and 16 ounces of water in between each juice. Plan ahead if you're going to be out and about, and take juice with you (kept in a cooler with ice packs).
It's normal to experience some fatigue, dizziness, constipation, diarrhea, or headaches. Drink more water or juice to lessen your side effects. Exercise moderately. Drink your last juice at least two hours before bed and then get enough sleep to let your body renovate the inside of your body.
After your cleanse
Start with smoothies, salads, and veggies. Maintain a wholesome and healthy diet, so you will feel your best.
Other Frequently Asked Questions:
How soon do I need to order?
Due to inventory and production purposes, we require a 24 hour production pre-order for 2+ day cleanses. If you would like to pick up a cleanse today, place call our location to see if they have the juices available that you need. All orders will be ready by 6pm the following day.
Why should I cleanse?
Our bodies are designed to cleanse on their own. However, juice cleansing is a way to bring physical and mental balance into our lives and to get rid of all the foreign things we introduce into our systems, such as processed food, heavy proteins, unnatural chemicals, and polluted air. If we treat our bodies right, they will treat us right.
Who should cleanse?
We believe adults should cleanse regularly to give the body a rest from processed and difficult-to-digest foods. Even healthy eaters will feel the difference when they flood their bodies with nutrient-packed, raw juice.
What if I am pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medication?
It's extremely important to consult your doctor before deciding to cleanse if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Also consult with your doctor first, if you have a health condition or are taking medication.
When should I cleanse?
It depends on what you need and what you want. Everyone's body is different. Some like to cleanse seasonally to reboot their systems or as a way to begin and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Will I lose weight on a cleanse?
Weight loss isn't the goal of a cleanse. However, on average, people lose between four and six pounds on a three-day cleanse and 8 to 12 pounds on a five-day cleanse. When you add solid food back into your diet, you may notice your weight fluctuating by a couple pounds.
How long should I cleanse?
We offer three and five day cleanses, or you can develop your own. The longer you cleanse, the more intense the healing process will be. A three-day cleanse will clean you out and help cleanse the blood. Longer cleanses will strengthen your immune system and attack more profound health issues. Please note that our juices have a 3 day shelf life and must be consumed within this time period. Mend Juicery is not responsible for juices not used within this time period. Cleanses lasting longer than 3 days will require multiple pick up or delivery dates.
Will a cleanse be too hard?
A cleanse requires commitment, planning, and dedication. However, you will be happy you did it, and your body will feel amazing! Cleansing isn't meant to starve you, but to nourish your body through liquids brimming with nutrients. If you feel peckish, drink another juice, warm lemon water, or herbal tea. Just be sure to stay away from carbonation!
Should I exercise while cleansing?
Yes! Sweat is a great release and exercise will maximize cleansing benefits. If you feel a boost of energy, moderate exercise like jogging, yoga, or Pilates is great. Just remember that you are taking in lots of nutrients, but not a lot of food mass. Pay attention to your body, and you'll know if you need to slow down.
