Can I have alcohol on special occasions while cleansing?
To get the most out of the Cleanse, avoid alcohol for the duration of your Cleanse. Alcohol wipes out beneficial bacteria, dehydrates, taxes the adrenals, hinders liver detoxification, feeds yeast in the intestines, and contains preservatives that are often sourced from wheat and corn. Knowing all that, we’re much more content holding a glass of sparkling water or kombucha and enjoying good company.
Most importantly, don’t stress about it. We often use alcohol to fill an emotional need or are pressured into drinking by our peers. Think of this break from alcohol as a “Thank You” gift to your liver, and an opportunity to learn more about who you are and what you really want.
