Our Cold Pressed juice cleanse program was born out of my own experience of juice fasting and how it transformed my life. A few years ago, my health journey was at its worst. 10 years of Dubai’s famous Friday brunches and home-made fudge brownies had left me overweight, I was an emotional eater, I had low energy and low self-confidence. My body felt like it was giving up, I had IBS and anemia, my hair was falling out, I was constantly anxious, and borderline obese. I hit rock bottom when a doctor prescribed anti-depressants, but it just didn’t feel right to take them, instead I booked a plane ticket and found a fasting retreat spending 10 days alone in the tropics on nothing but green juices and raw coconut water.
A week of no food for an emotional eater seemed impossible, but by the 3rd day, all I was hungry for was my return to nature. I was craving answers more than any meal. I spent time with myself, I learned about the healing power of raw foods and the universe’s different energies. It was a turning point not only because it changed my relationship with food (realizing you can live a week without eating reshapes how you look at French fries), but because it changed my relationship with the universe.
Since then, Juicing has done wonders for my life. Because my pallet was “cleansed”, I was able to transition fully to a plant-based diet, a journey that has completely changed my body and my mind. I am the happiest I have ever been, I rarely have anxiety attacks, I lost 10 kilos, I have so much energy that I can finally work out every single day, my iron levels are higher than they have ever been and I no longer have anemia.
