I am looking into doing a juicing clense for a couple days. Just to detox before Holiday Parties Begin Again, and to really clean out my system. I know there are Ritual Cleanse, and Nekter you can purchase for around $200, however I was wondering if anyone has ever done a home rememdy juice cleanse? I have found some recipes online, but I would like to actually get opinions from people who have tried it.

I’ll bump this for you 🙂
I have found that drinking LOTS of water & not putting crap into my body is the best, cheapest, safest way to “detox”. Technically, your kidneys & liver do all the detoxing & cleansing your body really needs.
So, hydrate! Eat clean! Avoid processed foods, fast food, soft drinks, etc and let your internal organs do the rest- that’s why they’re there!

I do drink lots of water day to day- I am a professional singer, so a normal day of water for me is 8-12 bottles. I just ate a lot of crap the past two weeks and want to completely cleanse 😉 I just did a green juice this morning and I feel great 😉
1 bunch of Kale
1 bunch of SPinich
2 green apples
pinch of ginger 😉
It was delicious! I ended up finding a 3 day cleanse (recipe guide) I drink 6 juices a day. It is the best way to get all the fruits and veggies that your body is supposed to get. I will keep results/experience updated 😉 I’m a huge meat eater, so my protien source will be hard to switch out (I am using a cashew milk (juicer recipe) for my dinners) . I’m excited!

This may be the stupidest question ever, but when you detox or cleanse, is it ONLY those drinks? or you just include those drinks with your daily meals?

@PinkL: It’s just juice.
I did a BluePrint Cleanse last year and thought it was a waste of money. If you want to “reset” for a few days, I think it’s better (and probably healthier) to spend a few days having a green juice in the morning and then super healthy raw stuff throughout the day (a kale salad for lunch, handful of nuts for a snack, herbal tea, some veggie soup for dinner, etc.).
I did do the cleanse from Gwyneth Paltrow’s website a few years ago and that was good – it’s more of a hardcore healthy eating plan that involves smoothies and juice as well as some light meal options. You can check it out here.

Yea I would never spend money to purchase a pre-made cleanse, when you can make them for a fraction of the cost yourself. I spent $35 in grocerys for the 3 day cleanse. I’ve done juicing/raw foods, and i feel great with it. But I really want to push out an actual cleanse out before the holidays 😉

Ok- Day one complete. I feel UH-MAZINGLY better just waking up this morning. Yesterday I drank 3 bottles of all greens (kale, kiwi, green apples, spinach, lime), 1 bottle of cashew/cinnamon milk, and one bottle pineapple/banana/orange. I actually woke up craving another green juice 😉
My husband came home last night and asked if I made dinner, I handed him a glass of green juice and he said “you’re out of your mind!” so I laughed and made him a ceasar salad instead! We have both put on about 10lbs since the wedding (Sept.2nd), so this is a much needed start to clean out our system before the christmas meals begin again. We are not by any means overweight. However before the wedding, we were working out/eating right non-stop then after we just kind of stopped and it is definitely catching up with us!

Made it 3 days and feeling better than ever 😉 I lost 4 lbs, and have tons of energy! This morning I was craving juice again when I woke up- so I made a carrot/beet pineapple juice. ….I do need a new juicer though 😉
