For thousands of years the Papaya fruit or ‘Tree of Life’ has been known for its vital skin and health benefits, and whilst some of us may be cooped up in the office, or alternatively, relaxing on the white sands of an exotic beach – there is no reason why any beach beauty should be missing out on the amazing effects that Papaya can have on your complexion and cardiovascular health.

Here at Odabash we're a fairly healthy bunch, but that doesn't mean we're not vulnerable to a 3 o'clock sweet tooth. We all try and wean ourselves off the diet demons like chocolate, coffee and carbs, at no avail - so after an encouraging encounter with yoga expert Chris James, we've taken it upon ourselves to commit to the 12 day Mind & Body Cleanse.
With over 12 years of practice in teaching yoga and remedial yoga therapy across the world, Chris James is a sought after name on the international yoga circuit and prides himself on a 'strong One-to-One approach'.
With an aim to "inspire you to transform the relationship you have with yourself and your own lifestyle"; to cleanse your system, aid with weightloss and boost energy levels by 100%, the Chris James 12 Day Mind & Body Cleanse has great expectations.
After recieving a comprehensive booklet of recipes and tips by Chris James himself, a unique collection of the highest quality supplements and a day-by-day easy to follow program, you will commence with the cleanse.
Starting with the Preparation phase which lasts 1-3 days and focuses on ensuring you are equipped with the right mind as well as foods before you start your cleanse.
A juicer is vital in your kitchen, and the understanding that certain foods will be eliminated to make way for introducing the alkaline-forming foods that are better for you, and easier to digest.
The next phase: Pre-purification demands as much raw food to be consumed as possible in preparation for the Power phase. This phase you can start to increase the supplements to aid the cleanse and promote a healthy balance of bacteria.
Moving on to the most demanding but rewarding phase - the Power phase. No meals are to be consumed but raw, fresh juices for 3 days. The body gets to have a break from normal food and has a chance to eliminate the toxins absorbed from a modern-day diet. We are reassured that even though this will be a liquid based diet, hunger will stay at bay thanks to the Supercleanse supplement which will aid in making you feel full. It is reccommended to be endured over the weekend, where you will have the opportunity to distract yourself from food temptation.
To finalise is the Maintenance phase where your digestive system has been given a full cleanse and it is time to slowly introduce solid food. Introducing fruit first, then vegetables, taking thing slowly. This is the time where we epect to see the amazing, rewarding results in our commitment to the cleanse - a refreshed mind, clean digestive system and high energy levels.
Some people even claim they have felt 10 years younger!
We're not going to say that it won't be hard, but we can definitely say it will be rewarding.
