The JSHealth 3-Day, Nutritionist-Approved Cleanse

Lifestyle
reflux-1

This week I’m embarking on my easy 3-Step Cleanse that I like to do a few times each year—the results can be amazing. I’m talking glowing skin, a cleansed liver, restored energy, deeper sleep and weight balance. It also just helps us get back on track and feel good about ourselves. Many of us drink too much alcohol and caffeine which often makes us feel pretty tired and bloated.

 

This simple cleanse can restore your energy and vitality. It’s a total body renew—perfect for giving your body some extra TLC and increasing vitality! Rather than a hard-core juice cleanse, it’s more like a beautiful way to give your body extra love and care.

 

Think of it as 3 days of self-loving.

 

People often find 7-14 days too intense (you can access a full cleanse week in my 8-week program) but often this is just too daunting for people. So I wanted to create a 3-day mind-body cleanse you can do at the start of each month preferably.

 

Get ready for a brighter, more brilliant you!

 

Step 1: Cut out the Nasties

 

You will need to cut out the following for the next 3 DAYS:

  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Cow’s Dairy and Soy
  • Refined sugar and sweeteners
  • Wheat and Gluten
  • Red meat (for now!)
  • Bad fats: trans fats found in vegetable oils as well as processed and deep-fried foods

 

Instead, opt for seasonal veggies (lots of leafy greens), fresh fruit (berries and green apples are best), gluten-free grains (like quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat), nuts & seeds, high quality fish, organic eggs and chicken (except for red meat) and coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil in your cooking.

 

Step 2: Lifestyle tips and tricks

 

  • Sweat! Get your blood and lymphatic system flowing to accelerate the release of toxins. Try and exercise for at least 30 minutes each day.
  • Aim to drink 2-3 litres of filtered water a day to help your kidneys flush out toxins. Herbal teas are also great for increasing fluid intake and cleansing.
  • Use herbs and spices to add flavour without extra oils or fats – my detox faves are turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.
  • Commit to 8 hours of sleep – it allows our bodies to heal and regenerate new cells – so important when you’re cleansing!
  • Care for your emotional self: When we cleanse, our bodies flush out toxins and sometimes this can cause certain emotions to rise – we feel more sensitive, maybe a little more vulnerable so make sure you set aside time for YOU.
  • See a naturopath to make up some cleansing herb tonics for you – they work really well.

 

Vitamins I recommend for these 3 days:

To be guided by a health practitioner!

  • A liver formula that contains a mix of herbs and nutrients to help flush your system. I like this one.
  • Brassica sprout power – found at most health food stores
  • Fibre blend powder/capsule – added to breakfast/before dinner. This is a good one.
  • Magnesium Cirate/dyglincate at night.

 

Step 3: Detox your environment!

 

Once you’ve started cleansing internally, it’s time to look at the outside factors contributing to the toxin build-up and remove those too!

  • Be mindful of what you are breathing in. Make a point of looking at the contents of your cleaning products – switch to natural detergents.
  • Use aluminium-free deodorant.
  • Buy organic whenever possible. Wash or peel fruit and veggies to remove pesticides otherwise.
  • Invest in a good quality water filter and use a stainless steel bottle instead of plastic.
  • Minimise exposure to plastics: use paper bags to store food, mason jars instead of plastic containers and don’t heat foods in plastic!
  • Choose cosmetics wisely – try switching to natural skin and hair products or even make your own! Don’t use fake tan and use natural sanitary products.
  • Switch to all natural household cleansing products – I use Mrs Meyers found on iherb.com

 

POST-CLEANSE TIPS

 

After the cleanse, you should be feeling lighter and more energetic. Let’s keep those good vibes going by giving your body even more love.

Do any or all of these things:

  • Take an Epsom salt bath three times a week.
  • Jump into the ocean whenever you can.
  • Deep belly breathe every day.
  • Get into a sauna or steam room whenever you can.
  • Treat yourself to a lymphatic or Thai massage.
  • Challenge yourself to avoiding alcohol for up to a month. Hello, clean liver and gut!
  • Detox your environment – tips above!
  • Schedule in the 3-Day Reboot for next month. Diarise it so you know it’s coming (and dare I say it, look forward to it!).

TESTIMONIALS

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My  copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time.  My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.

With kindest regards Samantha

I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.

When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.

I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.

Hey Jessica!
I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again

I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!

@mariashealthytaste

Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.

– Sophie

Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!

@freed_from_foodie

I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).

– Helene

I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud

Michelle Curtis

My fiancé bought your book and we have cooked some of your meals. Amazing! I love your outlook on a healthy lifestyle and your hints and tips with preparing tasty meals are fantastic. Thanks for reviving us to live a healthier lifestyle and get our bodies wedding ready.
