What is a Juice Cleanse or Detox?
There are many types. Typically cleanses lasting for a day or more is a practice of abstaining from solid food consumption in an effort to cleanse the body of toxins and increase fruit and vegetable intake. It takes discipline and clear intention prior to starting in order to assist with focus. Although, meals can be and should be consumed along with cleanses if experiencing medical complications. A conversation with your doctor should also be had if this is the case prior to starting. However, you can purchase individual bottles to have as a way to consume more fruits and vegetables and additional nutrition.
Why the name 1987 Juices?
It's the year our founder was born. She used to beat herself up about accomplishing certain things before a certain age, and so by giving the brand the name of her birth year....every year is a good year. It's also the same reminder she gives to 87ers, it's never to late to become who you were created to be. Hence, the logo's mention of "Refuel, Relive, Restore", bringing it back to the source of self.
What is Cold Pressed? Is blending still an alternative for me?
Cold-pressed juicers use a hydraulic press rather than high heat to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger. YES, blending is still an amazing alternative to juicing. Blending is taking the whole fruit or vegetable into the blender and drinking it. Juicing and Blending provides two different consistencies. Juicing is easier for your body to digest and hits your bloodstream faster (great if you have gut issues or difficulty with bowels). Blending makes room for more fiber and breaks it apart also assisting with ease in digestion, while also providing a more "full" sensation.
Do you offer pick up and delivery? And if so, how soon can I expect to receive my juice?
Yes, we offer both following covid guidelines. For both curbside pick up and delivery, you can expect to receive a text/email notification providing a date and time your order will be available for either pick up or delivery. For cleanses, orders are typically provided after 24-48hr hours to provide time for you to prepare the body and mind for a cleanse. We are currently closed on Sundays, and so all order placed after Saturday at 5pm will be delivered or available for pick up beginning the following Monday.
What is the longest amount of days I can do a juice cleanse?
This varies by person and health. We offer plans up to 5 days. Anything over that should be discussed with your doctor based on your personal health condition and status. Anything less than 5 days should also be consulted with your doctor if you have underlying issues and are concerned with food intake.
Can I still consume coffee or caffeine during cleanse?
It is not recommended to consume either. Instead, try water or even infused water to better assist you with toxin removal.
I am experiencing headaches, is this normal? I also feel drained and weak.
Yes, the body responds to lack of food. Lack of caffeine/sugar and with the process of flushing your system to remove toxins. Breakouts can also occur. This is sometimes apart of the purging process.
Is there anything else I can do to cleanse while on a cleanse?
Yes, cleansing is not just a physical process. It can be spiritual, mental, emotional and even financial. We suggest a few things to do while sipping:
1) Declutter your home, computer, social media (you can even fast from using it) and phone
2) Leverage this time to journal and read. Dedicate the week to a book and use the journal to capture your thoughts, be creative and jot down both short/long term goals.
3) Create a daily, weekly or monthly budget for saving, to get rid of debt, get ahead of bills, and to invite consistency and abundance into your life.
4) MEDITATE DAILY. This will help encourage your mission of finishing the cleanse. Tips on doing this would be to visit youtube and search for "Meditation & Healing Music". Choose the stream that FEELS best (Yes, you can actually feel the vibrations) and then close your eyes, focusing all of your intention on the moment while outwardly smiling thanking yourself for committing to the practice of cleansing.
5) FOR additional health practices: Be sure to consume lots of water to flush toxins, colon hydrotherapy, far infrared saunas, herbal tea, and oil pulling help as well. (Oil Pulling is a technique requiring you to "swish" oil around your mouth for 20 seconds. It's typically a dental practice but it has been said to help pull the toxins from your mouth and body)
How should I ease out of the cleanse?
It's suggested to leverage this time to implement clean eating habits. When writing out your goals (as suggested on sip instructions) include new habits. It's also suggested that you begin incorporating cleansing into your monthly routine to continue flushing the body as needed.
