Should I cleanse?

YES! Everyone should cleanse to feel the benefits of more energy and better digestion. Cleansing allows your body to rid itself of harmful toxins which are consumed every day. If you are experiencing headaches, blemishes, or body odour, among other things, your body is sending you a message. The body cannot rid itself of the toxins that have entered the bloodstream and are showing up in potentially harmful ways. Total Cleanse gives our bodies the opportunities to take a break from the daily hardship of digesting processed foods.

When should I drink my Juice?

Start each morning of the cleanse with a nice glass of plain or lemon water. Within the first hour or two of waking up you should drink your first juice. You should drink your juices every 2-3 hours apart and finish it within 20 minutes to preserve freshness.

What if I’m hungry?

Even though your calories are somewhat restricted on a juice cleanse, there are enough of them in your juices to get you through the day.  So we always suggest trying your best to stay away from solid foods. That being said, the first time you cleanse is definitely an adjustment for your body. So you if feel like you need to eat, “cheat” healthily. Ideally with fruit, vegetables and nuts that are already in the juice. Bananas make a great cheat, as do steel cut oats. Listen to your body. A cleanse shouldn’t be a miserable experience, so if you need something, eat something. Just  try your best to stick to clean, green and raw. Don’t even think about hitting that McDonalds drive-thru!

I’m using my juice as a supplement and need to eat; what can I eat?

We suggest sticking to a clean, sugar and salt free diet. This includes eating fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. You should avoid dairy, processed foods and refined sugars.

Should I be drinking water while on Total Cleanse?

YES! Water is an essential part of any diet.

I’ve completed my cleanse and feel good, should I stay on for longer?

Listen to your body. If you feel healthy and strong, we are always happy to accommodate those who wish to extend their cleanse. Please call or email us at least 24 hours in advance of your last day.

Can I cleanse if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

You can, but you will have to supplement with additional calories. You do not want to limit your calories when you are pregnant or breastfeeding because your baby is relying on you for nourishment. 

Is Total Cleanse safe for Children?

Children should not use the cleanse the same way that adults do - they can add it as a supplement to a healthy diet. The juices are excellent alternatives to juice boxes and our cashew milk is a wonderful alternative to milk. However, children’s calories should never be restricted.

Can I drink coffee, alcohol or smoke?

Coffee and alcohol are diuretics which means they may dehydrate you and they can also interfere with the absorption of certain key nutrients required for your cleanse. We all know how terrible cigarettes are for you so why not use your cleanse as an opportunity to try and quit or at least cut down for the duration of your cleanse.

Will I lose Weight?

Weight loss is a possible outcome but not the goal of Total Cleanse. This is a cleanse designed to give your body a break and to eliminate harmful toxins. Total Cleanse aims to put you on track to leading a much healthier life.

Can I cleanse if I have diabetes?

Check with your doctor first as some of our juices contain higher amounts of sugar which may be too much for you to consume at one time.

Can I cleanse if I’m on Medications?

You should be able to but we always recommend checking with your doctor first.

Should I stop taking my vitamin supplements?

If you take your multi-vitamin or B-12 supplement on a regular basis then you don’t need to stop. However, you don’t need to add any supplements if it’s not something that you have been taking regularly.

Can I do the cleanse if I am a Vegetarian?

YES! There are no animal by-products in our juice.

How do you make your juice?

We use a hydraulic press to produce our juice. The benefit of using a hydraulic juice press is that it extracts a much high concentration of vitamins and minerals than the more common centrifugal juicer. A centrifugal juicer, juices at a high heat which introduces air into the juice thereby reducing the shelf life and killing a lot of the key nutrients. A hydraulic press, first cuts and grinds the produce before putting it through the press to extract the juice. Less oxygen is entered into the juice which means you’re drinking a much more nutritionally dense juice.

Our juice is 100% fresh with no added chemicals or additives.

How long will my juices last?

Your juice is guaranteed to last the duration of your cleanse. We are able to extend the shelf life of our juices thanks to cold water pressure without the use of any preservatives or additives. After each production, our juice bottles are put into cold water where thousands of pounds of pressure are applied for several seconds. This process seals the freshness and keeps the concentration of vitamins, enzymes, minerals and the delicious taste of raw fruits and vegetables. If you have any questions regarding the shelf life of your juice please feel free to contact us. 

Is the juice organic?

We use a mix of organic and locally sourced produce. Due to the unpredictable variability in organic produce we found that it was difficult to keep our product consistent. We source from a high quality local produce supplier that we have found to be the most reliable in the high quantities we require. Before our produce even gets close to our juicers we thoroughly wash everything with an organic fruit and vegetable wash.

Why don’t you use glass bottles?

Our PBA-free, PET plastic bottles offer a better environmental footprint than glass bottles by using less energy, generating less solid waste, and creating significantly fewer greenhouse gases. Our bottles do not leach and are considered one of the safest single-use plastic choices on the market. When you're done drinking your delicious juice, simply recycle the empty bottle. 

How often do you suggest I cleanse and when’s the best time to do it?

We suggest that you cleanse seasonally or no less than 4 times a year but ideally you should cleanse for 3-days once a month. This will ensure that each month, your body has a good rest and a chance to recover. Cleansing before and after a holiday, long-weekend, vacation or when you’re feeling tired, depressed, constipated and sick (yuck!) is also a good excuse to cleanse as it will strengthen your immune system and keep you on track.

How far in advance do I have to place my order?

You must place your at least 48 hours in advance of when you want to start your cleanse. To start on Monday you must place your order by 5pm on Friday.

An emergency came up and I have to leave town, can I cancel?

We can delay your program if you contact us two-days in advance before the cut-off times. We do not issue refunds. Produce is ordered specially for you so if you call to delay after the cut-off times we will not be able to stop your cleanse.
