Take extra good care of yourself while cleansing.

Get plenty of sleep at night and take a rest during the day, too.

Exercise, gently and regularly.

Meditate daily, even if only for 5 minutes.

Bodywork. Schedule at least once session a week of massage, acupuncture, zero balancing, chiropractic or your favorite type of bodywork.

Colonic hydrotherapy. Available in downtown Burlington at Jivana Holistic Spa

Dry skin brushing. Use a loofah to massage your skin before showering.

Saunas, steam rooms and sweat lodges.


Don’t chill the stomach  Your stomach likes warmth and it requires less energy to digest room-temp or warm foods and beverages. Avoid freezing cold smoothies – add hot water to frozen fruit. Leave raw veggies out of the fridge a while before you eat them.

Blend cooked soups for liquid meals. Yummy and your tummy will smile. Toss some chickpeas or raw veg in last and pulse so there is a little texture.

Eat slowly and chew. Don’t eat in front of TV or while reading. Just eat.
