Cleanse Detox: 7 Reasons Why The Be Well Cleanse Is Better Than A Juice Cleanse

Cleanses, detoxes, juice fasts, they’re all the rage. Here are 7 key elements we feel are missing from a juice fast and why we feel our Be Well Cleanse is the way to go.

1. A juice detox does not provide the liver with the essential nutrients it needs to support optimal detoxification, which is important since your liver is your main detoxification organ.

2. A juice detox does not supply the fiber to “scrub” the intestines, bind toxins and promote their elimination.

3. A juice detox does not supply anti-microbials to eliminate the bad bacteria in the gut and maintain healthy flora.

4. A juice detox does not supply digestive enzymes to help the body break down food and assist digestion.

5. A juice detox  is just that – juices and no real food which can leave you feeling hungry and cranky . There is no meal plan that eliminates problem food and replaces them with nutritious whole foods instead.

6. A juice detox is often high in sugar which can spike blood sugars and make you “crash.”

7. The results of a juice fast are not sustainable, any weight lost is often regained once food is re-introduced. And you do not learn which foods you may be sensitive to and should avoid in the future.

On the Be Well Cleanse, you will have 3 shakes plus 2 small meals a day, so you won’t feel woozy from lack of food or nutrients – it’s not about starvation – or have to miss eating with your family or friends. Plus the Be Well Cleanse is completely transportable, the shakes and pills come in single-use packets and a blender bottle is included that makes it easy to fit into a busy lifestyle.

The Be Well Cleanse provides a comprehensive meal plan that eliminates the foods people are most sensitive to and outlines a list of nutritious whole foods to eat.

The Be Well Cleanse shakes contain a healthy dose of fiber to scrub the gut and aid in elimination and supplements provide both digestive enzymes and  anti-microbial herbs to get rid of bad bacteria in the gut.

While we are all for enjoying a green juice for a healthy nutrient boost, when it comes to an effective detox with long lasting benefits, there is just no comparison.

PIONEER IN FUNCTIONAL AND INTEGRATIVE MEDICINEFor Dr. Frank Lipman, health is more than just the absence of disease: it is a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing. Dr. Lipman is a widely recognized trailblazer and leader in functional and integrative medicine, and he is a New York Times best-selling author of five books, How To Be Well, The New Health Rules, 10 Reasons You Feel Old and Get Fat, Revive and Total Renewal.After his initial medical training in his native South Africa, Dr. Lipman spent 18 months working at clinics in the bush. He became familiar with the local traditional healers, called sangomas, which kindled his interest in non-Western healing modalities.In 1984, Dr. Lipman immigrated to the United States, where he became the chief medical resident at Lincoln Hospital in Bronx, NY. While there, he became fascinated by the hospital’s addiction clinic, which used acupuncture and Chinese medicine to treat people suffering from heroin and crack addiction. Seeing the way these patients responded so positively to acupuncture made him even more aware of the potential of implementing non- Western medicine to promote holistic wellbeing. As a medical student, he was taught to focus on the disease rather than the patient, and now as a doctor he found himself treating symptoms rather than the root causes of illness. Frustrated by the constraints of his training, and the limitations in helping his patients regain true health, he began a journey of discovery to search for the path to meaningful long-term health and wellness.He began studying nutrition, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, functional medicine, biofeedback, meditation, and yoga. Dr. Lipman founded the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in 1992, where he combines the best of Western medicine and cutting edge nutritional science with age-old healing techniques from the East. As his patient chef Seamus Mullen told The New York Times, "If antibiotics are right, he'll try it. If it's an anti-inflammatory diet, he’ll do that. He’s looking at the body as a system rather than looking at isolated things."In addition to his practice, Dr. Lipman is the creator of Be Well, an expanding lifestyle wellness brand he founded in 2010 to help people create, sustain and lead healthier lives.
