How do you feel when you first wake up in the morning? If the response is anything other than healthy, vibrant, and full of energy, it may be time to reset and support your body with a gentle cleanse. Optimal health, beauty, and well-being begin in the stomach. If we don’t eat well—or, more crucially, if we don’t digest food well—we might develop a variety of digestive problems, ranging from bloating and constipation to more chronic inflammation and leaky gut. In this article, we are going to break down what a 5-day cleanse is, cleanse and reset principles, and a variety of delicious smoothie recipes to get you started. Here we go!

What is the 5-day cleanse?

While our bodies work hard behind the scenes to digest and remove the variety of poisons, chemicals, and pesticides we face on a daily basis, the truth is that most of us require a little more help due to our hectic modern lives. The good news is that you don’t have to commit to a full-on cleanse to receive the benefits of a moderate cleanse. Our 5-Day Cleanse & Reset was designed to show you how, in less than a week, you can begin to transform your health and well-being while also supporting your body’s natural detoxification processes with a few simple food and lifestyle changes.

Cleanse and reset principles

Give these tips a try for 5 days, and we promise you’ll be feeling lean, clean, and green in no time!

Boost your Hydration

Drinking enough water aids your body’s cleansing and elimination of waste and pollutants. When you feel tired, sluggish, or bloated, your body is likely holding these excess waste products, putting additional strain on your detoxification systems as well as your skin. Aim for roughly 3 litres of water per day.

Load up on Fibre

Fibre, more than any other dietary type, aids in the nourishment of your digestive system and the promotion of proper cleansing. While our bodies go through three phases of detoxification, fibre plays an important role in the last stages by binding to toxins in the bile and gut and assisting with removal.

Ditch Gut-Compromising Foods

While it is critical to focus on what you may appreciate rather than what you should avoid during a cleanse, it is also critical to provide your body with the best possible opportunity to accomplish its work. Gluten and dairy both contribute to gut irritation and inflammation, which is why we recommend eliminating them from your diet throughout your 5-Day Cleanse & Reset.

Favour Fermented Foods

Probiotic-rich fermented foods not only support a healthy gut by encouraging microbial diversity and combating inflammation, but they also support our body’s natural detoxification pathways by neutralizing certain chemicals and toxins, so they don’t have to be processed by the liver. Fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, yoghurt, and miso, are naturally high in digestive enzymes, which aid digestion by breaking down nutrients and allowing them to be more easily taken by the body.

Dry Body Brush

Dry body brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which aids in the movement and removal of waste from the cells and is an important aspect of the body’s immunological and detoxification systems.

Move Mindfully

Yoga, Pilates, and walking are all excellent ways to practice mindful movement while also stimulating lymphatic drainage.

Eat the Rainbow

We all know that fruits and vegetables are a vital element of any healthy, balanced diet, but to receive the full benefits, it’s critical to eat as many different types as possible. Dark blue, purple, or red fruits and vegetables, such as purple carrots, sweet potatoes, beetroot, and berries, are higher in antioxidants.

Go Green

Every day, we come into contact with a plethora of chemicals and poisons in our environment, which we either consume or absorb via our skin, all of which contribute to our “toxic load.” Using clean and green cleaning solutions in our homes is one of the simplest methods to help lower our toxic load. If you’re not sure where to begin, avoid anything containing phthalates, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), parabens, or synthetic colours or perfumes.

Detox your Beauty Cabinet

The beauty items we choose to use, like cleaning goods, contribute to our “toxic load.” Indeed, many chemicals included in skincare and makeup products are toxic in high doses and can not only overburden our bodies’ natural detoxification mechanisms but also upset our delicate endocrine system.

Focus on Sleep

Good sleep also aids our body’s ability to detoxify itself, assisting in the removal of any poisonous substances and waste that may have accumulated during the day. To improve your capacity to sleep soundly, focus on creating a sleep-inducing environment. Aim to keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool in the evenings; avoid stimulating melatonin-blocking blue light from your devices, and avoid eating or exercising too close to bedtime.

    When resetting your system are you required to have these smoothies as l can’t obtain coconut water

    1. Tania

      These are just some suggestions for when you are not doing the program. Coconut water is best used for these recipes. You could try the second recipe as it doesn’t have the coconut water.
