What are the Benefits of Cleansing?

LET'S BE HONEST, while we strive to be healthy, even the best of us fall off the wagon from time to time. There are so many delicious temptations and it is too easy to eat the unwholesome foods or to have one too many cocktails on a night out. On top of that, much of our food has unwanted chemicals, fertilizers, preservatives (and goodness knows what else). On top of this, we are surrounded by medications, pain killers, air pollution, and a whole host of chemicals that come into contact with one of our largest organ systems, our skin.

These toxins build up in the body and can cause problems like digestive disorders, bloating, fatigue and lack of energy, waking up feeling tired and foggy instead of refreshed and revitalized, suffering from headaches, being emotionally unstable and stressed. Long term build up of these toxins are thought to be the cause of many degenerative and chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

A regular cleanse gives the body a chance to detox and reset by flushing out this build up of toxins, in turn helping to boost the immune system. A juice/whole foods cleanse floods the body with vital vitamins and minerals, aiding the detox process and providing an abundance of nourishment for the body. It also gives you time to focus on yourself. Pamper and nourish yourself!

You will notice changes occurring, not only with the physical but the mental also. This kind of experience can be a challenge but it is so rewarding. It is a positive step in the right direction and will help you to make better choices in the future. You'll find new awareness into what you put into your body and how that makes you feel. It is the perfect way to reset your whole being. Inside and out. Coming out of our comfort zone is a great tool for healing and can create powerful change for the better.

Trilogy’s organic juice cleanse and food programs in San Diego will nourish your mind, body and spirit. They have been created to encourage you towards long term health and happiness by creating a foundation upon which to build. 



1. At Trilogy in San Diego, we are dedicated to you and your health. We use 100% organic ingredients. Always. This means our juice is bursting with the highest and most absorbable nutrition. 

In our opinion, drinking a juice that is not organic is defeating the whole purpose. Non-organic produce has been found to have a much lower nutritional content. It is depleted of many important vitamins and minerals. The worst part: they are laced with GMOs and chemical pesticides. This will do far more harm than good! Detoxing with toxic vegetables simply does not work. Always choose 100% organic produce. These days, it is the only way. 

2. Our juices are not pasteurized. This means all nutrients, vitamins and enzymes are intact. The juice is live, raw and totally fresh. Pasteurizing (also known as HHP ) heats the product and kills all live enzymes. These enzymes aid with digestion and absorption. The Gerson institute, an organization where cancer is cured with raw juice, food and other non-toxic treatments, found that juice that had gone through the HHP process did not have the same healing effect compared with 100% raw organic juice. If it is HHP, it is simply not giving you the huge detoxing and healing benefits - cheer for raw juice cleansing!

3. We build our recipes with pure health and healing in mind. We do not overload them with sweet, high GI fruits and sugars. If you look at the franchises that offer smoothies and fresh juices you’d be surprised at the sugar content in the so-called healthy drinks with which people are replacing their meals.  If you have diabetic tendencies, any inflammation in your body, or perhaps yeast overgrowth or candida symptoms, you will want to steer clear of high sugar to avoid worsening your condition.

4. We offer a juice cleanse with vegetables only, reducing the sugar content substantially. We also have many low carb smoothie options and a low carb acai bowl.

5. We do our best to source from local farmers and believe in supporting the community. Your produce won't travel halfway around the world before it reaches you. We reduce our carbon footprint as often and as much as possible.

6. We package our juice cleanses in eco friendly packaging. Any plastic is PET. We avoid all dangerous chemicals. All of our containers are all recyclable. PLEASE RECYCLE! We offer glass bottles for reusing if requested!

7. We are a family owned business rooted in La Jolla, California with a love for Mother Earth and a passion for sharing our knowledge to help people find more balance and happiness in their lives. You vote with your dollar.

8. We are here to help! Leila is a qualified nutritional counselor and she along with supporting staff is available for advice and support throughout your cleansing process. Have any questions or concerns? We are very happy to help! We can create a tailor-made cleanse specially for you and to suit your individual needs!

9. We have a variety of cleanse options to suit everybody’s needs. For first timers we have a cleanse that includes one healthy raw salad, to ease you in! For the hardcore and more experienced cleansers out there, we have the Trilogy Warrior Cleanse with 6 vegetable only juices.

10. We pour so much LOVE and dedication into every single recipe and juice, it emanates out of the bottles and right into you! Trilogy Juice Cleanse will nourish your mind, body and soul.

The juice cleanse and food options at Trilogy Sanctuary include: cold-pressed organic juice and a free yoga class.

It is important to prepare your mind and your body before you embark on your cleanse.

Starting your cleanse the day after a night of excess will inevitably give the body a bit of a shock! Easing in slowly is much more effective and will make your experience more enjoyable. The more you prepare, the easier it will feel during your detox process.

For three to five days before your cleanse try to stick to the following guidelines:

  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol, sugar and nicotine.
  • Eat as light and raw as possible. High fiber vegetables, fruits and nuts should make up the majority of your food intake.
  • Avoid all processed foods, especially white flour, soy and wheat products.
  • Avoid meat. At most, eat only lightly steamed fish.
  • One day before the cleanse, try to consume only raw fruit and vegetables.
  • Drink plenty of water. Adding fresh lemon juice will help with digestion and PH balance.
  • Quitting items like sugar, caffeine and wheat all at once may result in certain withdrawal reactions from the body such as headaches. Eliminating them slowly before you start your cleanse will reduce the chances of this happening during the actual cleanse, making it a more enjoyable experience.

Breaking Your Fast

You have done SO well! First of all, congratulate yourself. Feel proud of yourself and revel in the satisfaction you feel from giving your body and soul this extra boost of vitality and life. The last thing you want to do is slip straight back into old habits. You now have a foundation toward healthier habits! Break the fast with something that is easy to digest. Papaya is a wonderful option as it is loaded with enzymes, setting you up for the day. Stick to fruits and vegetables for the first couple of days and then gently ease yourself into eating heavier foods.



This is totally natural, you will be consuming less calories during the cleanse than your body is used to. You may, at times, experience hunger. If this happens, don’t worry! It is only a sensation - not a dangerous thing - and it will pass. Think about the healing that your body is going through at this time. Think about all the benefits of the cleanse. You are doing your body a kind favor and it will thank you. You are developing a strong will-power. This is a challenge for the body and mind, revel in the feeling of power.

Drink a large glass of water, herbal tea or take a walk. The feeling will pass.

Repeat a mantra: Inhale ‘satisfaction’ exhale ‘letting go.’



We are all different so this is difficult to predict accurately. Everybody experiences a cleanse uniquely. During the cleanse it is likely that you will go though many feelings, some wonderful and others that can be challenging. The only thing for certain is how you will feel at the end: Alive, awake...energized and completely rejuvenated.

When the body starts to clear and release the toxins from the blood, joints and various organ systems, these toxins must go though the body in order to be eliminated. Many toxins are stored in our fat cells, so as our body converts the fat cells into energy, these toxins will also need be released. The normal reaction to this is temporary grogginess, heaviness and fatigue. These are known as detox symptoms. These are totally normal. It means you are getting better. We also may experience withdrawal symptoms from certain types of food that our body is used to having. This is why the preparation is so essential before we begin. Easing into the cleanse more gently. During the longer cleanses – 3 to 7 days, people experience the detox symptoms during the first few days. You will know when the toxins have been flushed because you will begin to feel elated, energized and refreshed. If you are still feeling groggy after one or two days it is because the toxins are still being released.



Then it is more important than ever that you start the cleansing process. If you have never done a cleanse before and you have spent many years living a unhealthy lifestyle, it is important to start with one of the basic, more gentle cleanses. We would recommend that you try to clean up your eating habits for at least a few weeks before you cleanse otherwise it may be too much of a shock to your body. Chances are that you will have a huge build up of toxins and they will flood the body, causing many detox symptoms. The more gentle cleanses will ease you in more gently.



Fasting has been used for centuries as a spiritual practice, a time to connect to a higher energy. A great time for meditation and reflection. Some people report a feeling of heightened sense of awareness and sensitivity, a feeling of openness and peacefulness. A lightness in the body and an increase in energy. The mind becoming clear, allowing for a slightly altered perception on life. The will power it takes to abstain from food is a spiritual practice in itself. It builds our confidence as we feel we are taking control. Increasing our power. Giving us a new perspective on food.



It is very likely that you will loose weight during the cleanse. Each cleanse will give you more nutrition than you are probably used to on a daily basis, at the same time, with a reduced calorie intake. The longer you do the cleanse, the more weight you are likely to loose. The most important thing, is that you use the cleanse as a step towards more balance in your life and healthier eating practices on a long term basis. It is not a ‘quick fix’ after a week of eating badly. We do not encourage this as a ‘yo-yo’ type dieting practice. We encourage balance. Toxins are stored in the fat cells, so it is important that you try to maintain a healthy weight, however the cleansing process is far more than just a way to loose weight.



This is impossible to answer. Anything can happen! It is different for everybody. Try not to fixate too much on what will happen. Worrying about it will not help the process. Try to be present. Focus on the preparation and let nature take its course. The mind plays an incredibly powerful role on our experience of life. You are about to embark on a healing journey. Know, and trust that you are exactly where you need to be and that all feelings and emotions are tools from which we can learn and grow. Let it happen. Surrender to the unknown.



It is really important to listen to your body and become more connected with it’s needs and feelings. Fasting is a wonderful time to do this. It is also important to distinguish between food cravings and a real need for food. If you are feeling hungry, slow down for a minute, close your eyes and feel. Ask yourself, do I really need food or can I get through this feeling of hunger? Drink some water or a herbal tea and see if that helps. If you need food then it is absolutely okay to eat. Don’t feel guilty for it. During a cleanse, stick to raw fruit and vegetables only. Preferably fruits with a low GI. Good snacks are raw green leaves tossed in apple cider vinegar, chopped vegetable sticks, Or perhaps some avocado with a sprinkle of lemon juice and paprika. If you have never done a cleanse before then perhaps start with our ‘starter detox’ this is juice and raw food, to help you ease in slowly. For more support book a consultation with our nutritional counselor.
