A Juicer’s Survival Guide
We advise juicers to prepare their bodies for fasting by spending a couple of days ahead of time eating lightly: salads, vegetables, fruits, raw foods. The cleaner the eating prior to the cleanse, the easier the detoxification process. Avoid processed foods, sugars, grains and dairy in that these are all inflammatory and cause a build up of mucous.
Cold Pressing & Enzymes:
Unlike other juicing, cold pressing keeps the enzymes intact. Enzymes perform a wide variety of jobs in the body, from speeding digestion to releasing energy so the heart can pump and the lungs can expand and contract. Enzymes also “clean house” – the enzyme trypsin is used in medical treatments to clear out debris and dead tissues from wounds.
Because our juices are not pasteurized or HPP’d (high pressure pascalization), they are full of the highly potent enzymes that make juices so healthy. Cold pressed juices are the only ones approved in Gerson Therapy.

“Cheating” on a Cleanse:
we strongly recommend following the cleanse for optimum benefits and results, however if you find yourself in dire need of food, try these hunger curbers: organic vegetable broth, raw organic celery stick, raw organic almond milk, raw organic cucumber slices, raw organic apple slices
if caffeine withdrawal is causing severe headaches and/or fatigue, try adding our cold-brew coffee or our cold-brew latte to your cleanse.
