"Raw Juice Company: 3 Day Reboot Detox" table of contents
Before I begin this three day journey of NO FOOD, yes you heard right NO FOOD, I have to say a big thank you to Saya Pitham for so generously sponsoring me this cleanse. What could possibly have possessed someone who is food obsessed to give up eating for 3 days??
It has been a chaotic year so far and it’s only March!! It’s my birthday month yet I’m lacking any sort of festive feelings. No energy, especially when the clock strikes 2pm. Having to convince myself to go to gym is another story. If I manage an hour class once a week I have done well.
I’m turning 27 in a few weeks (yes I just put my age out there), yet I’m feeling sluggish, mentally unmotivated and finding that my busy life is making me feel very, very old.
Over the past few years I have seen many new companies emerge and also many restaurants offering juices to their menu. The Raw Juice Company stood out for me as all their juices are “cold pressed”.
Cold pressed means that the juice slowly gets ground from it’s fibre, extracting all the yummy goodness that our bodies need and crave. When looking into a cleanse take this process into consideration as the conventional high speed juicers destroy a lot of the health benefits due to the high friction created.
Saya from the Raw juice Company has been wonderful in explaining how the detox works, answering my questions and of course going out of her way to get the juices to me all the way from the North Coast.
So this comes down to why I decided to do this detox?
- Rest and Repair my gut: I have had a few heart burn incidences over the past few weeks which I have never had a problem with before. It might be stress, something I have brought back from Bali or just my body telling me to slow down that has caused my stomach and intestines not to be functioning as they should, leaving me with unwanted heartburn.
- Improve Energy: This is self explanatory.
- Reduce Physical Problems: From problem skin to a strange rash on my arm, the signs of toxins built up are definitely evident.
Tomorrow I will be embarking on something I have never tried before. I am scared, nervous but most of all ready to cleanse my body and to start feeling my age. I will be posting daily about what I’m drinking, how I am feeling and any changes I may be experiencing. I hope to encourage many that are too afraid to take the juice detox leap and to show them that it is possible to reach your lifestyle goals one day at a time. I would like to live a more balanced lifestyle: work hard, play hard and rest hard.This Detox is me taking that first baby step to achieving that “balance”.
With all that said and done…
Wish me luck!
