Detox/Juice Cleanse — What To Expect Before, During | Juice Cleanse: What To Drink And How Much?

8 To 14-Day Detox/Juice Cleanse (The Second Week)

You have been juicing for a long time, have done a few short cleanse, and now are ready to take a step further, for some deeper cleanse.

The juice cleanse could be the perfect next step for you. It provides a deeper cleanse than a short plan, but it’s still easier to do than embarking on a long journey.

If you want to do a juice cleanse on vacations, you are most likely seasoned enough to do it without disrupting your routine life flow. The 8 to 14-day juice cleanse has some interesting details.

WHY You Should Do An 8 To 14-Day Juice Cleanse

An 8 to 14 day juice cleanse is a great way to get rid of most of the toxins in your body and start healing minor to moderate health issues. If you suffer from chronic diseases, you will probably start to notice improvements in your condition, but a full-blown reversal of the pathology would still require a longer plan.

After 2 full weeks of juice cleansing, certain types of arthritis and Psoriasis can start to heal themselves, often leading to a long period of remission. A cleanse won’t be enough to reverse the process itself, just to provide a solid yet temporary improvement.

BEFORE You Start On The Detox/Juice Cleanse

There are a few pointers to keep in mind before you start.

  • This 8 to 14-day juice cleanse is NOT for beginners. If you are new to juicing, start slow. Start with drinking fresh juices regularly for a few weeks, then try out with 1 or 2-day fasts, building yourself up to 7-day juice fasts. Once you have enough experience at these stages, and have accustomed your body to juice cleanses, then you are ready for a two-week juice cleanse!
  • The second week of a body cleanse can evoke feelings of old injuries, traumas, operations, and diseases. Remember that health reactions are temporary, and be ready for this.
  • Please read the 7-day detox/juice cleanse that will lead you up to this 14-day cleanse. Particularly note, that you should start with a gastrointestinal cleanse. Also go on a parasite cleanse that will enhance your detox efforts, superboosting your healing.
  • It’s important to have at least 8 hours of sleep every night as this is the time when the most effective detox processes happen. Try to get some extra sleep during the second week of the month and you can sometimes feel more tired. Let it rest, don’t fight the feelings of exhaustion.
  • It is generally recommended to take a break from any supplements during your detox program except for 30-50 billion count probiotics and omega-3 fish oil or flaxseed oil. If you’re doing the gastrointestinal cleanse and/or the parasite cleanse, then follow those protocols where supplements are concerned.

What You Can Expect AFTER Completing This Juice Cleanse

The prediction of what you can expect from your 8 to 14-day juice cleanse is not universal because every person is unique. These are the most commonly experienced health improvements.

  • Fats start melting down during slow and steady weight loss.
  • There has been a significant decrease in sugar cravings.
  • There has been a significant increase in energy levels.
  • Digestion and bowel movement have been improved.
  • Chronic processes were soothed.
  • Improved focus and clearer thoughts.
  • Enhanced rest effectiveness and deeper sleep.
  • The skin is starting to clear up.

Possible Healing Reactions DURING The Second Week

Most of the toxins from your body will be flushed out during the first week of detox, so the second week will be marked by far less intense healing reactions and much higher energy levels. If you are overweight, however, some of the healing reactions might persist during the second week as a lot of toxins are deposited in body fat and would require more time to be flushed out.

Here’s a brief list of the most common reactions that you may have experienced during the first week. Some people experienced these symptoms even into the second week:

  • Hunger is a common problem in general.
  • Rarely vomiting and nausea.
  • Coated tongue
  • The breath and body odor were not pleasant.
  • Dizziness, headaches
  • Muscle aches
  • There are skin issues, such as skin eruptions, skin problems, and skin problems.

The second week is also the time when your body starts “digging deeper” into its organs and tissues, repairing old damage (from traumas, operations, and diseases) that had not been properly healed before.

Once and for all, the toxins that have been deposited in scar tissue and bone are gradually released into the bloodstream, ready to be eliminated. The same pain and other symptoms that you experienced when the original trauma or disease took place are a common sign of this process. Drink lots of water to speed up the cleansing. Most people find enemas to bring relief as well.

What To Drink And How Much

As with any detox you do, the main piece of advice I always say, is to listen to your body. The second week of your juice cleanse is likely to be much easier on your body than the first one, but for many people it still remains a challenge not to be underestimated (especially if this is your first two-week cleanse).

  • Aim to get yourself a good portion of juices three times a day, with occasional sips of juice or broth in between meals, to help you get through the day. This amount is a guide and not a hard and fast rule. As long as your body can handle it, you should drink as much as you can.
  • In between your meals, feel free to drink more juices, broths and caffeine-free herbal teas whenever you feel like it. The idea is to continue to flood your body with the good stuff, and not get hungry. Here are some ideas of what you can drink, on top of your juices.

At this stage of your juice cleanse, the detox processes will be taking place at a much deeper level, so it will be extremely important to ensure optimal hydration and aid the cleansing process as much as possible. Aim for at least 70 ounces (2 liters) of water on top of your juices and broth.

Juice Plan For An 8 To 14-Day Detox/Juice Cleanse

You can do an 8 to 14-day juice cleanse with slow and steady. With more time for the cleansing to be carried out, there is less need for metabolism-boosting ingredients like ginger, turmeric, etc.

Two weeks is a lot of time for you to experiment with juicing and other health related activities.

By this time, you may be able to add beetroots to most of your juices for a good cleanse and support of your body’s cells. Most of the time, you should keep a focus on green juices that are most healing for your bicyle, and for healing and repair of damaged tissues.

Suggested Juice Recipes

You can find some juice recipe ideas for your juice cleanse, but never hesitate to combine the ingredients the way you please. The worst thing you can do with a 2-week program is make it dull and boring.

Always use organic, if possible, unless you’re using a slow juicer that can help minimize the inclusion of artificial chemicals in your juice.

Lemon and ginger root are often included in my juices. These are the things that I rely on the most.

The lemon is a wonderful citrus fruit that does a few things when added to any juice. It enhances nutrient absorption in your body by up to 5x, making your juices go a longer way to feed your cells. Lemon superboosts your immune system, and improve the taste of your juices. Always use organic lemons, and include the peel (cut off both ends). It is the bioflavonoids in the peel that do these miraculous healing.

Ginger root on the other hand, gives the juice an extra “kick” in the taste, improves blood flow and strengthens your guy and immune system. You may use more than the recommended one-inch, if you like a little spiciness in your juice.

In general, aim to get as much of greens as you can (while still feeling comfortable and healthy), but feel free to spice them up with a dose of fruits. Pineapples, apples, and carrots are usually the best ones when it comes to combining them with greens. Get more tips on making great-tasting green juices.

Have fun, but it is your adventure.
