Q1. What is the Joulebody Cleanse and how can it help me?
Joulebody is a vegan-cleansing program that helps with weight loss and will help ease you into a healthier way of eating. Joulebody ends food cravings and fits your lifestyle. This is not an all-liquid plan. The Joulebody Cleanse includes delicious whole foods to help curb your hunger and makes the dietary transition easier on your body.

Q2. How do I know that this program will work and be safe for me?
As with any cleansing program, consult your doctor in order to decide if this program is right for you. There are unique medical conditions and allergies that may not allow you to eat a plant based diet for an extended period. We will gladly provide you with a sample menu, including all ingredients and nutritional values so you can consult with your doctor before starting our program.
Q3. Why should I do a Cleanse? What’s the big deal?
A Cleansing program is designed to detoxify the body. It allows the liver and kidneys to take a break by eliminating solid foods and harsh proteins and replacing them with liquefied vitamins, minerals and nutrients sourced from organic green vegetables and fruit. To truly detoxify your body and reap the benefits you should include laxatives, detox teas and beneficial supplements such as acidophilus and/or high fiber foods.
Cleansing helps the body rid itself of free radicals; toxins produced by pollutants and processed foods. Cleansing helps your body deal with issues like water retention, digestive problems, fatigue and bad skin. It helps to fight the signs of aging. After a cleanse you’ll notice clearer skin, enjoy more restful sleep, and best of all achieve healthy weight loss!
Q4. What is the menu for a typical day on the program?
Your menu will include a mix of meals, snacks and cleansing juices. Here’s an example of a typical day’s menu:

12 noon Soup or salad made of root vegetables, mixed fresh herbs and our exclusive potassium broth.

Q2. Can I drink bottled water while cleansing?
We recommend that you only drink water from a glass bottle during your program. Plastic containers can emit certain unhealthy gases that could enter your liquids or meals.
Q3. I’m sensitive to sugar. The berries are ok, but the maple syrup might be too sweet. Will the maple sugar in your products affect me?
Our Citrus Cleanse is a delicious drink with a combination of maple, cayenne, lemon and/or grapefruit along with a specially formulated Auryverdic tea that will perk up your taste buds! We balance each ingredient to keep them equally potent. Our Balance Bars contain less than 6 grams of sugar. The low sugar levels in our products shouldn’t be a problem.
Q4. How do I know your program is safe?
All of our meals are created using pure real food with no additives and no artificial ingredients. We personally create all of our powdered blends in house. Our meals are made in a strict vegan kitchen and are untouched by any animal products. We usually deliver our meals on the day they’re prepared for maximum freshness. We only use organic locally sourced ingredients.
Q5. Are there side effects? What should I expect?
You may experience some side effects when you begin a juice cleanse. They can include headaches, dizziness, nausea, bad breath, glazed eyes and a coated tongue. These are the signs of the first stage of detoxification called the Downs. Dips are shorter periods of discomfort that generally last a few hours. As you begin your cleanse your body releases stored toxins. The greater amount of toxins released into the blood stream, the worse you’ll feel. This is normal.
One solution many have found to relieve this discomfort is the administration of an enema. This will immediately remove the toxins from the colon and will act to crave any hunger pangs as it quickly assists the body to enter a fasting state by ending digestion in the colon.
You may also experience some emotion turmoil and cloudiness in your thinking. Old memories or negative feeling may arise as you cleanse your body of toxins. It’s easy to become irritable, short tempered or mildly depressed if this occurs. This is the time to remain positive and focused on your goal. You are cleansing your body, mind and soul and this discomfort will pass.
Q6. I currently take vitamin supplements. Can I continue to use them while I am cleansing?
Our delicious food and juices are rich in vitamins, fiber and other nutrients. We suggest you consult your doctor before starting the program if you are currently taking high doses of supplements.
Q7. Does the Joule Cleanse assist with detoxifying any other addictions?
This plan is based on healing foods and although can be beneficial, there is no science that this can assist anyone struggling with alcohol use, smoking and other drug addictions.
Q8. How will I know that I’ll like the recipes?
At Joulebody, all of our cleansing foods are full flavored, organic and locally sourced whenever possible. They are full flavored delicious minimally processed foods. Your plan is designed and the recipes are selected using the information you submitted in your Assessment Questionnaire. The program is designed to work with your current eating habits
Q9. How soon after I start the program will I feel the effects of cleansing?
The positive effects of switching to a “clean” diet that is plant based, mildly cooked and flavored with very specific herbs and spices are immediate. Your digestive system will begin to more efficiently breakdown your food. You may experience some detox symptoms such as headache, lethargy and small body aches. Each individual is unique, but most of our clients feel great by the second or third day. Many notice an immediate difference in skin tone and reduced stomach bloating. Weight loss usually occurs by the fourth or fifth day on our program.
Q10. Is there a schedule and menu for your program?
Each package of food and bottle of juice is labeled with the time and day that it should be consumed. You will also receive a detailed instructional guide. If you’d like to receive daily cleansing and wellness tips, visit our page on Facebook and become a fan!
Q11. Can I stray from this diet?
As with any cleanse, you’ll receive maximum benefits by sticking with the program. If you find yourself struggling to stay on track, for a small additional fee of $45 you can arrange to work with our Holistic Counselors. They will help to keep you motivated and on track during your cleanse.
Q12. If I do slip and break the diet for a meal, do I have to start over?
No. You can just start the program where you left off.
Q13. I enjoy dining out with family and friends. Do you have instructions for what to eat when I go out?

Our cleanse is the perfect kick-start to your wellness program. We suggest you consult with your physician if you have any questions about your eligibility.
Q19. I suffer from high blood pressure and bad cholesterol. My doctor suggested a wellness program including cleansing. Is your program right for me?
You doctor is a wise man! Our program is customized to take into account any health issues you might be experiencing. The Joulebody Cleanse is not a fad diet. It is a plant based vegan diet designed to promote health and wellness. You’ll love the results so much that you’ll want to continue on the wellness path to a healthier life!
Q20. Beans sometimes make me gassy. Your program seems to use a lot of different beans in your foods. How will this affect me?
We use beans that are high in protein and lower in fiber and are easily digestible, such as the Mung bean, which is a type of sprout. This helps to minimize any discomfort caused by gas.
Q21. Since this is a cleansing program, will I need to use the bathroom more frequently?
You will experience increased urination during your cleanse. Although uncommon, you may experience an increase in bowel movements. Most of our clients are women in their 30’s and 40’s. This is an age where they may begin to experience conditions like IBS and hormonal changes. Because of this, we are extremely cautious about keeping fiber content at a reasonable level. Many of our meals contain less than 5 grams of fiber, are high in plant-based protein and offer energizing nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Q22. What should I do after I’ve completed the program?
You can set up an appointment for a nutritional consultation that can help you to continue on your path to wellness.
Q23. How often should I do a Joulebody Cleanse?
Because our program is based on raw foods, fresh juices and vegan meals, you’re getting all of your nutritional needs met. You can do the program as often as you like.
Q24. What are the results of the Joulebody Cleanse?
Most participants experience weight loss, better skin, improvements in digestion and more energy.
Q1. I thought all cleansing programs were liquid-based; can you eat solid foods and still cleanse?
The idea that all cleansing programs need to be liquid based is outdated. Joulebody’s special cooking techniques and our mineral rich foods work wonderfully to cleanse and detox your body naturally. The Joulebody Cleanses allows you to eat delicious solid foods while cleansing your entire body.
Q2. Is there really anything I can actually chew?
Yes! While there is a liquid component to our cleansing programs, our nutrient dense meals are delicious! You can enjoy hearty soups with chunks of vegetables, seeds and legumes. Your personalized menu plan may also include veggie burgers, salads and even dessert cookies!
Q3. I’ve done cleanse programs before that have left me feeling weak. Will I be able to exercise on your plan?
While some cleanses are so restrictive that you may feel less energetic than usual, The Joulebody Cleanse is different. Our plan includes plenty of protein and electrolytes to help your feel energetic all day. We also offer support materials that will help you to work out safely while on your plan.
Q4. What is the source of the fiber and protein in the plan?
In general, cleansing juices remove the pulp of vegetables and fruits and extract water-soluble fiber that facilitates the cleansing. The Joulebody Cleanse also adds supplements like flaxseed, dandelion root and aloe to enhance the cleansing process.
Q5. What is Potassium Broth?
Our specially formulated potassium broth is in all of your meals. It offers the body natural energy from a proprietary blend of electrolytes, B vitamins, potassium and protein.
Q6. You’ve mentioned the healing properties of the cleanse ingredients. What are some of the ingredients that you use?
Scientific researchers like Drs. T Holin Campbell, Frank Lippmen and Mark Haymen have documented the beneficial healing properties of specific herbs and spices. We use those ingredients in our food. Foods like tumeric, cayenne pepper and fennel seeds all have intense healing properties and can aid in the cleansing of the digestive system. We use these ingredients and others known to have healing properties and that are best for cleansing the body.
Q7. What’s the difference between the Joulebody Cleanse and other diet programs like Slimfast or Weight Watchers?
