Gentle Holiday Cleanse

It’s the weekend after Thanksgiving and chances are you’re feeling the effects of the cheese boards, rich casseroles and sweet desserts. Maybe it’s time for a reset cleanse! A reset cleanse can help you bounce back quicker from the after effects of indulging and keep you in line with your health goals. With balance being the focus, this upcoming week is a perfect time for a reset before doing it all again next month.

Here are a few ways you can reset this month:

Drink warm water with lemon.

Begin your day with warm lemon water and sip it throughout the day. Lemons provide several health benefits, which combined with warm water, can promote hydration and stimulate digestion throughout the day. Hydration cannot be stressed enough during this time—consuming enough water is essential to help your liver and kidneys filter out toxins.

Herbal Detox Tea.

Try sipping on this warm detox tea after meals or before bed. Designed to help support the liver and kidneys (the body’s detoxifying organs), this mild, caffeine-free, vegan detox herbal tea features Milk Thistle, Peppermint, Dandelion, Sweet Fennel, Elder Flower, Nettle Leaf, Parsley, Uva Ursi and Licorice plus a refreshing flavor. Fennel is great, as it relieves digestive problems such as indigestion, bloating, flatulence, constipation, intestinal gas, heartburn, and even irritable bowels. This beautiful herb stimulates digestion and has carminative effects that soothe the digestive tract and prevent the formation of gas.

Focus on plant-based meals.

Although you may be tempted to eat very little after eating so poorly, it’s important to focus on nourishing, healthy meals. Think fruits, veggies, and plant-based proteins.


Yoga is the quickest way to get your energy system back into balance, plus it boosts your mood. Try incorporating 20 to 30 minutes in the morning to get back on your exercise track. You’ll be feeling at-home in your body in no time!

Eat with intention.

Eating with intention is an excellent way to avoid the feelings of regret that follow holiday overindulgence. To prevent damage at the upcoming parties this holiday season, avoid overindulging in foods you wouldn’t normally eat. For example, if you typically avoid gluten or dairy,  you may not feel well if you eat a large amount “because it’s the holidays.” Resist the “when in Rome” mentality, and you won’t struggle as much with a guilt-riddled detox mindset in January. Indulge in a small serving of the food that was made with love by your family and friends, and enjoy what’s on your plate, no shame! Eat with gratitude and intention, and cherish the love that was infused into your meals.

7 Day Clean Tox Gentle Cleanse.

Clean Tox is combination of herbs and supplements for digestive organ support. The main ingredients at work are ginger, choline, L- glutamine and aloe. Here is how they work:

  • Ginger is one of the most nutritious and beneficial spices on the planet. It is scientifically known to reduce inflammation & pain, lower blood sugar, reduce heart risk factors, help chronic indigestion, lower cholesterol, help prevent cancer and improve brain function.
  • Choline is an essential nutrient that is used in our bodies for cell maintenance, metabolism and our nervous systems. It can help improve brain & cognitive function, increase metabolism and protect our heart.
  • L-glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for a healthy digestive tract because of its ability to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall. This amino acid heals all tissue in the body, especially those irritated tissues in the digestive tract.
  • Aloe has some awesome benefits. It keeps your body’s pH balance, offers intense hydration, helps with liver function, heartburn and constipation. It is packed with nutrients like calcium, copper, chromium, magnesium, potassium and zinc.

To use just mix a packet of the cleanse with 32-48 ounces of water and sip it through out the day. It is not a fast, just an addition to your healthy living program. Continue to eat a clean diet and add in the other suggestions listed above.

As you can see, don’t have to go to extremes to reset your body after a festive feast. Just take care of your body with the intention of mindfulness, nourishment and self-love.

  • Add 2-3 Tbsp of powdered confectioners sugar to the coconut cream. Optional: add cinnamon, vanilla bean – any small amount of flavor you’d like.

  1. If for any reason your whip seems too stiff or dry, you can add a few teaspoons of the leftover coconut liquid or non-dairy milk. If your whip seems too soft or watery, you can add another tablespoon of sugar OR stick your mixture back in the fridge – it may need to firm up again.
  2. Coconut cream is best eaten right after it is whipped as it will lose some fluffiness if you stick it in the fridge to chill. But it actually holds up better than I expected!
