A juice cure consists of replace your solid diet with our Fruit and vegetable juices.
- You choose your cure (more or less green) and its duration (1, 3, 5 or 7 days) depending on your experience. If this is your first treatment, we recommend that you start with a more colorful treatment. If you feel mentally ready to last three days, go for it! If not, start with a day. In general, the first three-day cure is a revelation!
- You receive 12 freshly squeezed juices of 250 ml per day of treatment, the evening before your first day.
Our current world and its way of life pushes our body to the limit. Very used, it draws a lot of energy to fight against the harmful substances of processed foods (which contain additives, are often too fatty, too sweet, too salty, ...), stress, pollution, alcohol, tobacco, ... Overloaded with toxins, our bodies become acidic and our organs filter less well.
This is why it is sometimes important to take a break and "cleanse" your body.
We don't believe in replacing all meals with liquids, we love to eat.
But, refraining from solid food for a few days a year gives the body a break.
By eating only Juice, your body will be able to use the energy, which is normally used to break down food, to de-clog itself. Your body cleanses itself, while filling up with good nutrients.
The cure also helps fight certain addictions. We sometimes go through periods of excess where we consume too much sugar, salt, tobacco, caffeine or alcohol, and we may experience more addiction. The cure helps the body and the brain to put into “reset” mode, makes us want to eat less, and consume more healthy products.
The body, lighter, purified in depth, finds all the energy it needs to start again on new bases! It is a stimulating experience, full of benefits, which gives you a feeling of control over your body.
To maximize its benefits, the juice cure is not done on a whim. She is preparing mentally and physically. Here are our little tips that you might find useful:
- Check your calendar and block a date ! Certain events, certain outings, could ruin your juice treatment (dinner with friends, parties, weekends, sporting event, etc.). Better to choose a calm moment, you will be mentally more serene (e).
- Prepare your body, and alkalize it as much as possible, the week before your treatment:
Hydrate yourself! Drinking at least 1.5 liters of water a day, herbal teas, infusions, is the best way to prepare for the cure. These speed up the renewal of your body's cells, which boosts your body's blood flow and healthy exchanges, cleanses your skin, and keeps your brain on the go.
The best is to drink filtered water (with charcoal or ceramic beads for example) and drink it at room temperature.
Cut down on caffeine and tobacco (the stimulants) as much as possible.
A healthy body is a body in acid-base balance. Unfortunately, coffee is acidic, and this acidity weakens the body. Plus it dehydrates you. Replacing it with green or white tea, or herbal teas, would be ideal. But we know how much you can be attached to it. Do your best to reduce it as much as possible.
The cigarette is very harmful for your whole body, it intoxicates all your cells. So why don't you use the time of your cure as an opportunity to cut down or quit smoking? The Juice cure, and Juices, are often indicated as an aid to quitting smoking. Do your best to smoke as little as possible. It's not easy, but you can do it!
Limit fatty, sugary and refined foods low in micronutrients. During this period of preparation for your treatment, avoid as much as possible consuming junk food, industrial foods (ready meals, sauces, cookies, etc.), chocolate, softs, alcohol, meat * , farmed fish, wheat, dairy products, ...
Increase nutrient dense foods that are richer in micronutrients (essential for the proper functioning of your body). Dishes should be homemade with organic vegetables and fruits, spices, seeds, legumes and oilseeds, whole grains, vegetable drinks and organic fish for non-vegetarians.
If you're aiming for perfection: 75-80% of your diet should be raw, whole foods.
* Excess meat results in high levels of uric, phosphoric, and sulfuric acids, strong acids that are difficult to remove. Prefer legumes (beans, chickpeas, broad beans, lentils, ...).
- Eat smaller portions than usual. Your meals should be light. You can introduce soups, salads, smoothies, sushi, ...
- Ventilate yourself and incorporate regular exercise into your routine. If you are athletic, continue your training as usual and, if possible, exercise outdoors. If you don’t play sports, allow yourself some time in the fresh air and take deep breaths. One hour of walking per day, if possible in nature, will do you the greatest good!
We know how great, before a deprivation, the temptation to eat a burger with fries (and a good dose of mayonnaise yay!) Is great. Yes, it is very human. We assure you, for having tested it, that it will make your cure more difficult. Prefer to postpone this temptation to one week after stopping the treatment. Yes it is cruel! We know, we know! But it's for your own good, you'll thank us later.
You will receive 10 Juices and 2 Mylk of 250 ml per day. This is the equivalent of 10 to 12 kilograms of fruits and vegetables per day. Here are our tips for a more effective cure:
Lemon juice in the morning, a ritual!
Squeeze half a lemon, or use our THE BRIDE Juice, and dilute it in lukewarm water, and drink it before the others, to start your day.
Do not hesitate to keep this routine after the treatment. Its purpose is to start digestion, it strengthens the immune system, and boosts the body. You will quickly feel its benefits.
Drink a juice every 1 to 2 hours.
PIMSIE gives you an order on your treatment order page, but you don't have to follow it at all. You decide which juice to drink based on your need at the time.
If you are a novice, a little lost between all these bottles, no stress, here are two or three tips to help you choose your order:
- As you read above, THE BRIDE on an empty stomach would be perfect to give you that little kick that will help you start your day.
- Note that green and red juices are slightly sweet and more consistent, yellow juices and orange juices are lighter and sweeter.
- Mylks are generally eaten in the evening, 2 hours before bedtime. They are kind of the little greedy reward, and most importantly they help you fall asleep.
Even if you're not hungry, when it's time to drink your next juice, try drinking it. Being regular will help keep you from going hungry!
Take the time to drink your juices slowly, and if possible, chew them!
Yes, that sounds weird. But drinking slowly, while chewing, causes salivation, which triggers digestive enzymes, which allow them to digest better, which will allow better absorption of nutrients in the stomach and intestines.
- In addition to the three liters of fresh Juice and Mylk, you should drink at least two liters of water (to be combined with herbal tea or infusions) per day. This advice aims to help your lymphatic system drain and detoxify your organs. If you don't like water, you can add lemon juice, mint leaves or cucumber slices to it.
- You might experience MCN syndrome (“Must Chew Now!” Translates to “I have to chew now!”), Which makes you feel hungry.. If you suffer from this syndrome during the treatment, ask yourself if you are really hungry, or if it is just the urge to chew. If you need to chew, you can bite into an ice cube, or just wait for it to pass. It's a little challenge! If, on the other hand, it's a real hunger, go for it! But, for a healthy, raw, organic food (carrots, an avocado with a little lemon, peas, a stalk of celery, a dozen nuts, ...), and do not feel guilty, your cure will not be. ruined so far.
Brush your body dry! Dry exfoliating promotes circulation, stimulates your lymphatic system, which will mobilize better and detoxify your body better.
Brush your body with a brush made of natural bristles by making circular movements, always in the direction of the heart ! Start with the feet, then the calves, thighs, buttocks, back, stomach, hands, then arms, and bust. Avoid the throat, face and sensitive areas. Then go in the shower! Finish your shower with a minute of cold water to stimulate your blood circulation even better (from head to toe).
The icing on the cake, oil your body with sesame or coconut oil. You will tell us the news.
Sweat! Sweating is the most effective way for your body to flush out toxins.
But keep in mind that this is in "energy saving" mode, so it would be quite natural to reduce your exercise routine.
If you're feeling weak or unfamiliar with sports, take a walk, brisk walk, stretch, do some yoga, go to the sauna, or jump rope.
If you are an athlete and you feel fit to do your CrossFit session, go for it! The important thing is to listen to your body!
- Relax and plan for full nights! The treatment is a special time, the ideal time to meditate, stretch, rest, sleep well and take naps, take deep breaths. Let your body and mind relax.
Congratulate yourself every day! Juicing isn't always easy, but remember that you are feeding your body about 10 to 12 pounds of vegetables and fruit per day. It’s a massive supply of super nutrients that nature gives you. After two or three days you should feel a sense of well-being that will last until the end of your treatment. Allow yourself to fully experience these feelings of fullness.
You are doing a lot of good for your body and your mind!
Your digestive system being at rest during your treatment, it is important to resume a solid diet gently.
We advise you, during the first days after treatment, to continue to eat healthy, alkaline and light. To consume a lot of organic fruits and vegetables, oilseeds, lean meats and fish, to eat more in the form of smoothies, soups, salads, and to have light meals, if possible homemade. Avoid industrial products.
Now is also the time, if you think you have food intolerances, to add certain foods one by one (milk, soy, wheat, nuts, wine, etc.). You may be able to identify the food triggering your reactions yourself.
Some people may be in craving (sugars, coffees, etc.) and have reactions called "purification", before feeling the benefits of the cure. These reactions result in headaches, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, or emotions (irritation, anxiety, fear, anger, depression). These reactions are natural, and they are a sign that your body is cleansing itself properly. And it is sometimes overwhelming, emotional. They are due to the sudden withdrawal of certain foods. Don't worry, these effects should wear off within 24 to 48 hours to give way to a boost of energy.
The important thing is to listen to yourself, the "right time" is different for everyone.
Some people get a lot of benefit from a 3 to 5 day cure as soon as they feel unwell., tired, depressed, constipated, heavy, swollen, when they feel they are no longer managing their diet, or quite simply when they no longer feel in tune with themselves. In general, slack is a good indicator !
Others are more regular, and do a one-day cure at the start of the week, like a mini-reset after their weekend. Still others plan their treatment each time they take a break (Christmas, New Year, etc.). Regular treatment strengthens your immune system and keeps you in good mental and physical health.
Still others prefer to take cures several weekends in a row for two months.
Finally, some choose to do a longer cure (5 to 7 days), two to four times a year, each in-season. Or a 3-day cure once a month, for example before and after the holidays, or during long weekends.
You will know and find out, after testing and feeling its effects, when you need or want it most..
Yes, you should continue to take your medication as usual, of course!
Yes, sweating helps remove "waste" from our body, but you need to stay tuned to your body!
Your energy level can be a little unpredictable during a treatment. If you are feeling weak, take it easy, limit yourself to light exercise, a walk, a bit of yoga, or stretching. If you're feeling good enough and energized for your boxing session, go for it!
Add some relaxation. The cure is a privileged moment, the ideal moment to rest and take naps. Let your body and mind relax.
Yes, but knowing that you might feel the effects of the cure which could interfere with your professional activities (fatigue, headaches, diarrhea, nausea, etc.).
Absolutely! In addition to the three liters of fresh vegetable juice, you should drink at least two liters of water. (to combine with herbal tea, infusions or lemon juice) per day. This is important in helping your lymphatic system to drain “waste” from your body.
Yes, herbal teas caffeine free go very well with a cure.
In fact, some people feel cautious during the treatment, this is a normal reaction. If so, bundle up tight and drink some tea to warm up.
Avoid black tea and prefer green and white teas, herbal teas and infusions of good quality.
It is better to avoid coffee during your treatment, because it acidifies your body and our goal is to alkalize it. But we know how important coffee is to some people, so do your best to decrease or eliminate the coffee during the cure.
For the addicts, our Mylk THE GODFATHER (cold brew coffee almond milk) contains caffeine and is less acidifying than traditional coffee. Don't hesitate to taste it!
No. Alcohol is a toxin that must be processed by the liver. The cure is designed to cleanse the liver and rid the body of its "waste", which is why it would be a shame to drink alcohol during the treatment and it would be even better to avoid it in the days before and after the treatment.
In addition, since you reduce your food intake, the effect of a drink will surely be much stronger. This is why, as much as possible, we advise you to avoid drinking alcohol during your treatment.
You may lose weight (+ - 2 kilos / 3 days of treatment, it's different for everyone) and put it back on.
Short-term weight loss is not the goal of a cure. But it especially helps you reset your eating habits, refresh yourself, give yourself a little challenge, eliminate cravings, question your diet, and surely take new healthier habits.
No. A cure, because it is only for a few days, is not a diet. You are not going to have a rebound effect. You will be able to lose a little weight during the treatment, which is above all a loss of water, which you could resume after the treatment, but nothing more.
The cure is a chance to reset your eating habits and eliminate the craving for processed foods. The cure helps break unhealthy habits, restore the connection between mind and body, and start a healthier lifestyle.
The goal of the cure is to replace all solid food with juice for a few days so that your body regains its full potential.
We will therefore encourage you, to reap all its benefits, to resist during the few days of the treatment, because it is really worth it!
We have included in our treatments that you have enough calories to get you through the day without feeling hungry. Also, the challenge aspect, if successful, will give you a little more confidence.
If you don't feel the energy to do a cure, PIMSIE also offers Juices to include in your solid diet.. You will be able to considerably increase your intake of good nutrients, and this on a daily basis!
If you feel that you are going to crack during your treatment, ask yourself if it is real hunger or if it is just the urge to chew. If you need to chew you can bite into an ice cube or wait for it to pass (yes, it will!). If, on the other hand, it's a real hunger, go for it! But not for a Big Mac. Prefer a healthy, raw, organic food (carrots, ten nuts, radishes, etc.).
And above all, don't beat yourself up. The experience of a cure is a small challenge, but must remain pleasant!
