A Nourishing combination of specially blended broths including collagen-rich seaweed, medicinal mushrooms, vegetables and detoxifying herbs serve alongside our heart-warming soups and curated collection of herbal teas, hot-shots and elixirs to create a cleanse which is perfect for healing the gut and nurturing the body through the colder winter months.
For hundreds of years, our ancient ancestors have been forced to fast, due to harsh environmental conditions and a lack of food and fire. Ironically these long periods without sustenance had some serious health benefits for our bony brethren.
Not eating allowed their bodies to redirect energy away from digestion to make better use of it in repairing damaged muscle and organ tissue so that they could move more quickly and their hearts could more efficiently pump oxygen. It also heightened their senses, so that they could more easily sniff out roots and fruit and see prey. Basically, fasting makes you stronger as your body throws you into survival mode.
Nowadays we have slightly more sophisticated ways of guiding our bodies into this healing state of deprivation: planned and regulated fasting.
To unlock these healing benefits, in a way that's better suited to winter than our regular juice fasts, Nourish'd have designed the Gut Healing Winter Warmth Cleanse.
This program is comprised of two gut-healing broths, one activated charcoal rose elixir to draw toxins from the digestive tract, a hot-shot to kick-start your digestive system in the morning, three specially blended medicinal teas per day, designed by us in collaboration with Aether Herbalist and Apothecaryto support your cleanse experience, and two heart-warming soups to provide the nourishment and energy your body needs in colder weather.
First made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow's brand Goop, soup cleansing has since become popular all over the world delivering astounding results to many of those who try it. And so we're super excited to be able to finally offer Capetonians the opportunity to attempt soup-cleansing in a convenient and curated way.

I have really enjoyed the broth cleanse, am on the last day and was anticipating some cravings etc with the cold. But I have not felt hungry, I enjoyed all of the soup tastes and would very much recommend it. Will definitely do it again.
This was a particularly challenging cleanse. Perhaps because my taste buds struggled with the broccoli and pumpkin broths. It was still a positive experience with mind and body being much more in sync after the fifth day. Perhaps offering a wider choice of broths? Price-wise it was a bit steep for what I got, and the tea was randomly replaced with rooibos.
