Tips for maximizing your detox

  1. Stay Hydrated - hydration is so important on a everyday basis, and particularly when you are undertaking a detox. It keeps your body working properly, your metabolism going and helps with flushing of toxins.
  2. Rest - it is important not to exert your body when detoxing. Your body requires rest so that the majority of your energy and blood flow can be directed to assisting with the removal of toxins.
  3. Body brushing - use a body brush all over your body, always brushing towards the heart, to increase circulation and assist with toxin removal. 

Feeling hungry on the detox

Usually, the first thought people have when hearing of the Lemon Detox is "but won't I be hungry?!".

Generally, people find that they are quite hungry on the first few days, purely due to their mentality. It really is mind over matter, because you are still eating (albeit in liquid form) throughout the cleanse. To curb your hunger, first and foremost, make sure that you are drinking plenty of water. Not only does this help with the cleansing process, but hydration is important. Other options is to drink some herbal tea. Sometimes the feeling of hunger can just be the desire for some variety. If you do choose to have some tea, stick to caffeine free, relaxing teas such as peppermint or chamomile.
If you get to the point that you can't take it anymore, you're about to crack if you don't get something in your stomach, have some freshly squeezed orange juice or vegetable soup broth (salt free). This will hopefully fix your hunger without compromising the detox at all.

Why the full body cleanse is most effective!

The single most important part of a detox program is not eating solid food. Some people worry at the prospect of going without solid foods, yet such fears are groundless. Not eating may sound daunting, but it is much easier than you think. The Lemon Detox cleanse is based on consuming liquid food. It is not a fast. A true fast is complete abstinence from food of any kind. The Lemon Detox drink, however, is a liquid food, energising the body while you take a break from solid food.

It is very important not to burden the body with solid food during the Lemon Detox program, as it hinders the cleansing process and reduces its effectiveness. Most detox diets that promise an internal cleanse whilst still consuming food will not do as well as complete abstinence from food. Here's why:

Food contains chemicals and additives, so consuming it will add more toxins during a fast. This hinders your ability to release the accumulated toxic build-up present in your body.

Eating requires a lot of energy to digest, assimilate, and eliminate. This is energy intensive, and your body is not able to rest and restore. When you stop eating, your whole body is at rest. This is when the body allows itself to restore balance. In short, your body becomes rejuvenated.

Although the relaxed version incorporates eating a healthy meal per day, it is only a minimal consumption of food and will not dramatically hinder the detox program, compared to detox diets that require constant consumption of solid foods.

A breakdown of the Lemon Detox ingredients

Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup

The Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup comes from the sap of the 'Birds Eye Maple' tree and the Arenga and Kitul palms that grow in the tropics. The Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup is the base and a very important part of the Lemon Detox drink, it provides plenty of energy and nourishment while undertaking the detox.

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper is the second ingredient in the Lemon Detox drink. It is a powerful natural metabolizer, it helps to support and increase the metabolic rate, increase circulatory flow, and aid digestion, all of which make it a powerful detox aid. It also adds a zing to the drink.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is the final ingredient (other than water) in the Detox drink. Lemon is rich in vitamin C, high in antioxidants, supports the immune system and aids digestion and detoxification.

Senna Tea

Senna tea is a mild laxative which is taken every night during the detox program. The tea basically helps to breakdown any solid waste in the digestive system.

Sea Salt

The sea salt works in conjunction with the senna tea. It is dissolved in water and taken in the morning and helps to flush out the digestive system particularly of the broken down waste from the senna tea.
