48h détox : après les fêtes, le programme choc !

After the excesses of the festive season, the body is often saturated with toxins, leading to symptoms as diverse as digestive problems, fatigue and weight gain. To purify your body and start the new year in top form, opt for a detox cure. Our 48-hour express program.

After the festive season, it’s essential to help the body purify itself by evacuating the toxins accumulated from eating too much fat and drinking too much alcohol. The 48-hour detox cure is ideal for this purpose: by eating only plant-based juices for two days, the body is thoroughly detoxified to restore digestive comfort and general well-being.

What is a detox cure?

The detox cure consists of eliminating everything that is harmful to the body, such as saturated fats, alcohol, tobacco, refined sugars, caffeine and preservatives, which are therefore banned from the diet for the duration of the cure.

There are several types of detox cures based on a crudivorous and frugivorous diet. For a short, hard-hitting post-holiday program, you can opt for « juicing » (a diet consisting solely of fruit and vegetable juices for 48 hours).

Here’s an example of the ideal menu for detoxifying the body (to be repeated over two days before returning to a normal, balanced diet):

  • Breakfast: juice with 2 oranges, 2 carrots, 1 celery stalk, ¼ green cabbage
  • Morning snack: juice with 2 carrots, 1 cucumber, 1 box of kale, a lime.
  • Lunch: juice with 2 beet, 1 apple, 1 celery stalk, 1 cucumber, 1 handful of fresh mint
  • Afternoon snack: juice with 1 radish, 1 carrot, 2 cucumbers
  • Dinner: juice with 3 apples, 1 celery stalk, 1 handful spinach, ½ cucumber

Detox: advice and precautions

To optimize the results of our detox without harming the body, a few precautions are essential.

  • Ask your doctor’s approval before starting the cure, as not everyone (e.g. pregnant women) can benefit from it.
  • Drink plenty of water, tea and herbal tea to keep your body hydrated.
  • Prepare your own juices using fresh fruit and vegetables, preferably organic.
  • Preferably at weekends, so you can rest. The early stages can be difficult, leading to fatigue, headaches and digestive problems. Meditation and relaxation activities can help.
  • If possible, engage in gentle physical activity to speed up the purification process (walking, yoga, gentle exercise).
