FAQ

Don’t our bodies naturally detox? Why would we need a cleanse then? 

Yes - this is absolutely true. Our bodies are incredibly intelligent organisms with complex and round the clock functions working in overdrive to keep us balanced and detoxing. Our modern lifestyles and overburden of toxins in our physical environments, emotional bodies and food supply can lead to an accumulation of toxins at a rate that our bodies can't deal with. The key to supporting these processes is not in deprivation but in supplying our bodies with an abundance of the right nutrients to support the body to heal itself. Our programs are occasional ways to pause our hectic lifestyles and flood the body with nutrients. Cleansing is an ancient practice - modernised here. 


Who should detox? 

We believe almost all adults can benefit from a regular cleanse program as part of their lifestyle, no more than once per month. We suggest maintaining this with a regular consumption of nutritious juices and nourishing bone broths in your daily diet. Be it a high powered office worker, stay at home mum or someone addressing deeper chronic health issues almost everyone can benefit from a carefully curated reset. We are all busy and often it is our diet and health that suffers first. Liquid Lightning resets are designed for adults to enjoy, even those who are lactose intolerant, gluten free or follow a vegan/vegetarian diet can partake. **Please keep in mind that our liquid reset programs are NOT appropriate for those of you who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffer from certain medical conditions. Consult your health care provider before starting a cleanse program if you have a medical condition or take medications. Please see questions 3 & 4 for more information.


What If I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not restrict your diet to liquids, as you need extra calories and nutrients in your diet. You by no means want to be stimulating your detox pathways in excess of general healthy living at this time. Consult your health care provider for more information. 


Will I lose weight from a liquid reset? 

While this is entirely possible and common, it is by no means the goal of our programs. We understand weight loss is important to a lot of people, however quick fix solutions sought from a place of self punishment over self nourishment rarely result in the desired outcomes for people. It is common to find that a reset prompts your body to re-balance itself, this may mean shedding unneeded weight. 


Can I exercise while on a cleanse? 

Yes - absolutely. Just be mindful that you are consuming a smaller volume of food. Most people will find they have an abundance of energy and we recommend only gentle exercise like walking, a light jog, yoga, pilates and practices such as breathwork, lymphatic drainage, saunas and ice baths to help you maximise your toxin drainage. 


Can I add other drinks to my cleanse? 

Yes! We recommend warm herbal teas, hot water with lemon, extra bone broth if you need protein. Try to avoid coffee (black decaf if you must), milk (unless it is a very small amount of RAW milk), carbonated drinks and absolutely avoid alcohol at all costs.
