5-Day Alkalise Cleanse

Drink at least 6-8 glasses (approx. 300ml per glass) of fresh vegetable juice and vegetable broth throughout the day at 2 hour intervals. Carrot, spinach, beetroot and cucumber juice are all suggested. Juices are useful in weight-loss programs because they are filling yet low in calories, high in water and nutrients. In addition, drink plenty of purified non-carbonated mineral water and herbal teas to ensure you are not dehydrated.

Continue to drink the juices, broth, water and teas, adding raw or cooked vegetables and fruits. Grape fruit is particularly recommended. Like other citrus fruit it helps the digestive system breakdown fats. It also cleanses the urinary system and is a diuretic. Watermelon is probably the most potent diuretic amongst the fruits and can help with fluid retention.

In addition to the above introduce a serving of wholegrain bread (1 slice), beans (a cup), nuts and seeds (a cup).

In addition to the above introduce a serving of fish (160g) (extra two day).

In addition to the above introduce a serving of dairy products and/or a serving of lean chicken or lean red meant (150g).

A vegetable broth (like the one below is an excellent addition to a cleans. It will help to alkalise your system (eating too much meat, alcohol, sugar, salt and caffeine all make your body’s systems over-acid) and also help to detoxify your system. The spinach has a mild laxative effect and will stimulate the liver, gall bladder and aid blood and lymph circulation. Drink approximately 500ml, warmed, daily during all stages of the detox.

So when he suggested I try a new anti ageing treatment that wipes 5 years off in ten minutes, I said yes. It’s a game changer.. 💫🙌
