Smoothies

By Cheryl Cason

Maybe it’s because they’re often lumped in with slushies, shakes and other cold treats. Or maybe it’s because you just as often see children sipping them as you do adults.

Whatever the reason, the health food label seems to have avoided smoothies in many circles. Many fail to recognize that smoothies are high-vitamin, all-natural fruit and vegetable drinks that are as healthy as they are delicious. Much like the organic juices consumed in a detoxifying juice fast cleanse, smoothies provide the body with a burst of the vitamins and nutrients that are abundant in raw fruits and vegetables.

Detox Lounge - smoothiesSmoothies, unlike the salt-heavy sodas that are so prevalent in today’s society, help keep your body hydrated. Staying hydrated is important for a number of reasons, both medically and cosmetically. Making sure your body gets adequate amounts of water aids in digestion, replenishes lost electrolytes, and helps maintain younger-looking skin.

Whereas all-organic juice cleanse juices strip away pulp from your favorite fruits and vegetables, smoothies do maintain low levels of pulp, which provides fiber content that is beneficial to the digestive process. And some smoothies, depending on your recipe of choice, also boast a cultured milk content that, in addition to creating their rich, thick appeal, provides probiotics, calcium and other vital nutrients.

At the Detox Lounge in downtown San Diego, smoothies are part of an ever-growing menu of gourmet foods served at Raw Detox, our raw foods kitchen. From soups and salads to entrees and desserts, Raw Detox serves an assortment of raw food creations from chef Chris Antes. Even if you aren’t in the mood for a meal, you can get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables in a refreshing smoothie.

Sometimes packaging can be deceiving. When many of us think about smoothies, we imagine the tall, frosted glasses and colorful straws and think “a delicious treat” rather than “a great source of vitamins and minerals.”

Think again.

Try one of the delicious 12- or 20-ounce smoothies in the raw gourmet foods kitchen at the Detox Lounge in downtown San Diego.

Juice Cleanse – Sports Drinks

By Cheryl Cason

Since helping replenish University of Florida football players in 1965, Gatorade – and other similar sports drinks that have since appeared – has worn a reputation as being a beverage for health-minded people. Feed your body the nutrients it needs, the thinking goes.

For people who have participated in a rigorous workout, sports drinks can be everything they’re marketed to be. They help replace water and electrolytes lost during excessive sweating while providing carbohydrates for an extra burst of energy. So for serious athletes and fitness-minded people who challenge themselves, sports drinks can provide performance-enhancing qualities.

Where sports drinks pose a problem, however, is among the less-active set. To them, sports drinks are more like the bad boy with the squeaky clean rep. There’s a definite gap that separates perception and reality. Children, in particular, are drawn to the colorful bottles and fruity flavors. To quench their thirst, they opt for a bright blue Powerade over no-calorie, no-sodium water. It’s not a bad call if it’s halftime of the soccer game, but as an after-school drink while watching Nickelodeon, sports drinks sometimes do more harm than good. Here are a few points to consider before you twist open a sports drink:

Sports drinks_Detox LoungeCarbohydrates

The carbohydrates in sports drinks are a great source of energy to athletes, but to people on the couch they’re nothing more than a source of empty calories. If you’re a serious athlete reaching for a drink before, during or after a workout, those calories provide energy that you might well need. If you’re not, those calories are the same waist-stretchers that you’ve been striving to avoid in soft drinks.

Electrolytes

When we talk about electrolytes, we’re talking about salt. Profuse sweating can certainly leave us low on sodium, and sports drinks offer necessary replenishing. Our bodies need salt, but considering how prevalent salt is in our society our bodies don’t typically lack for it. Again, unless you’ve engaged in rigorous exercise, you likely aren’t in need of sodium. Sports drinks pump twice as much of it into your body as does a can of soda.

Replace your passion for sports drinks with the all-natural goodness of True Juice Cleanse juices at the Detox Lounge. Delivery is available to people living anywhere in California, Arizona or Nevada. Visit us online and order yours today.

Dr. Norman Walker – Juice Cleanse

By Cheryl Cason

The health benefits of fruit and vegetable juices may be well-known today, but the world wasn’t always so tuned in. Often we rely on a pioneer to show us the way.

Sir Isaac Newton is credited with saying, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

Those words should resonate with juice cleanse advocates as they consider the 100-year-old work of Dr. Norman Walker. An Italian native who spent the early part of his life in England, Dr. Walker invented the commercial juicer – the Norwalk Triturator Hydraulic Press Juicer – that serves as the blueprint used in manufacturing juicers today.

Norwalk juicer - Dr. Norman WalkerWith its invention in 1910, the Norwalk made it possible for people to consume a recommended regimen of raw food by drinking the pulp-free juice that the machines produced. Dr. Norman Walker was a firm believer in the benefits of consuming raw foods, and his long, full life stands as evidence that perhaps he was onto something.

Dr. Walker, who was 99 when he passed away in 1985, built his vegan diet around a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. He wrote several books that furthered his beliefs on nutrition and healthy living, including the wildly popular “Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices,” an in-depth look at how juices from raw fruits and vegetables can provide your body with vital minerals and nutrients that are lacking in the common Western diet. The book was originally published in 1936; a revised edition was released in 1978 and played a key role in the birth of the modern day organic juice-cleanse movement.

Look around today and it doesn’t take long to find someone sipping a smoothie, downing a glass of their favorite home-made juice concoction, or tipping a bottle from the Detox Lounge’s 3-Day Juice Cleanse. With every swallow, we pay homage to a man – a giant – on whose shoulders we stand.

Dr. Norman Walker did more than recognize the good in drinking fruit and vegetable juices. He showed us the good in drinking fruit and vegetable juices, and in the process initiated lifestyle changes that can still be felt over a century later.

Do you share in Dr. Norman Walker’s passion for drinking fruit and vegetable juices? We do at the Detox Lounge. Visit us on J Street in downtown San Diego and start your 3-Day Juice Cleanse today.

Beach Body – Weight-Loss

By Cheryl Cason

The summer beach season is fast approaching, which can only mean the Beach Body Diet Season is in full swing.

Folks are scrambling to make sure they look their best when they wear the least, striving to erase months of winter snack habits that allowed them to hide a few extra pounds beneath baggier winter wear. But here comes the sun.

People want change, and to achieve it, many will no doubt challenge themselves with lifestyle-altering diet and exercise plans. But often the results are closer than you might think. Here are a few simple weight-loss tips to help you tighten up your beach body quickly and safely.

Get Moving

Much of our exercise comes during activities that aren’t considering exercise.  A stroll to the drug store. A walk to the post office. By simply staying active we burn calories. Unfortunately, the shorter days and colder temperatures of winter often rob us of the time and desire to stay active. Get back into shape first and foremost by getting back on your feet and moving.

beach body - weight loss cleanseEliminate One Treat

Maybe your vice is potato chips. Or perhaps you’ve fallen victim to the caffeine of soft drinks.  Most of us have no difficulty identifying one treat that we’ve abused throughout the winter. Completely changing your diet to include garden fresh salads and rice cakes is a challenge that some aren’t prepared for, but we can make major strides simply be eliminating one high-calorie snack from our cupboards.

5 Minutes for You

Life’s hectic pace can make it seem like there just isn’t time for a few pushups or tummy crunches. Don’t fall prey to this mentality. Carve out as little as five minutes  in the morning and five minutes in the evening to do a set up sit-ups, knee lifts or whatever exercise works your body in an area you want to trim.

Enjoy ‘Fast’ Results

Juice fasts don’t have to involve a long-term commitment. The Master Weight-Loss Cleanse at the Detox Lounge in San Diego is a five-juice program that helps people lose weight in as little as a day. By capping a person’s daily intake at 500 calories, the Master Weight-Loss Cleanse delivers quick results. It also helps a person reach long-term weight-loss goals by providing important vitamins and minerals that condition your body to keep the weight off.

Rediscover your beach body. For more information about the Master Weight-Loss Cleanse, contact the Detox Lounge at 619-255-2927.

Schweitzer Formula

By Cheryl Cason

As the annual celebration of summer nears, many of us are reminded of the common maladies that too often mar our time hiking, camping, swimming or sun-bathing. Bugs bite. The sun burns. And Mother Nature is ripe with examples of plants that leave more than a mark. Don’t let itchy, irritated skin leave a blemish on your day at the beach or walk through the woods.

This summer, fight back and arm yourself with Schweitzer Formula, a miracle solution that helps people tend to a variety of common conditions that irritate our skin in the summer. Schweitzer Formula is a nearly 100-year-old holistic concoction that applies the principles of quantum physics to a product that heals and soothes a wide range of common conditions. It puts to use ingredients such as zinc, boron and salicylic acid, converts them into a crystalline form, and offers them in an odorless liquid.

Spritz bottles are available in various sizes, as small as 2-ounce trial sizes that conveniently slip into any purse, beach bag or glove box. Use Schweitzer Formula in favor of bug bite treatments, aloe-based moisturizers and countless creams and lotions and see how the solution once known as Zinc-Borocyl provides an all-in-one treatment that helps heal damaged skin and eases summer’s most common skin irritants.

Schweitzer FormulaUse Schweitzer Formula to treat:

  • Rashes
  • Hives
  • Poison Ivy
  • Insect Bites
  • Sunburn
  • Blisters
  • Athlete’s Foot

Schweitzer Formula is applied locally, absorbed through the skin and into the blood and tissue. It’s used by medical professionals as a disinfectant to stop the growth of anaerobic bacteria, fungi and viruses, but it provides more practical, everyday benefits to people worldwide.

All summer long.

Order your supply of Schweitzer Formula from the Detox Lounge in downtown San Diego. Contact the Detox Lounge at 691-255-2927 or send an email through the Detox Lounge website.

Juice Fast for Weight Loss

By Cheryl Cason

A slower metabolism, much like gray hair and wrinkled skin, is a truth that many of us face as we age. But as with those other tell-tale signs that the days of 22 gone for good, there are measures we can take to counter a slowing metabolism.

A juice fast – such as the Master Weight-Loss Cleanse at the Detox Lounge in San Diego – is designed to speed up a person’s metabolism by countering that which, in part, causes the metabolism to slow. Namely, a weight-loss juice fast helps eliminate fat.

To better understand how a juice fast assists in weight-loss, it’s important to have a basic understanding of what metabolism is. Metabolism is the amount of energy, or calories, a person’s body needs to burn in order to maintain itself. Since maintaining muscle requires more calories than fat, a person with a higher muscle mass will typically have a higher metabolism than will a person with more fat.

The Master Weight-Loss Cleanse is a program that consists of five low-calorie, all-organic teas. It helps your body lose weight for good by conditioning it to a diet rich in essential nutrients. The lineup of weight-loss drinks – Tropical Heat, Vitality Splash, Blue-Green Goodness, Bloom Berry, and Chai Coconut Bliss – caps your daily caloric intake at 500 calories while fortifying your body with all-natural vitamins and minerals.

juice fast - weight-lossBurn fat, increase your metabolism, cleanse your digestive tract and help detoxify your body with all-organic drinks that include juices from:

  • All-organic fruits such as lemon, pineapple and coconut
  • Wonders of nature such as gynostemma, hibiscus flower, schizandra, elderberries and raw honey
  • Vitamin-rich products from HealthForce Nutritionals
  • Deliciously healthy ingredients such as ginger and cayenne pepper

A juice fast can help eliminate unwanted fat, and should be utilized in conjunction with other health and wellness initiatives. Increase your body’s muscle mass by lifting weights, and decrease your body’s fat through aerobic workouts.

As always, you should consult with your physician before embarking on any long-term health and wellness program, particularly if you are considering a long-term juice fast. Because while metabolism commonly slows with age, it is possible that another medical condition is playing a role as well.

Contact the Detox Lounge to learn if home-delivery of the Master Weight-Loss Cleanse is available in your area. Call 619-255-2927 or visit the lounge on J Street in downtown San Diego.

Green Vegetables – Iron Deficiency

By Cheryl Cason

A diet lacking in green vegetables can show itself in a number of ways. What might seem like nagging little health issues are often signs of bigger problems down the road. Take iron deficiency, for example. Early warning signs might really be symptomatic of iron deficiency anemia, a serious condition that prevents adequate amounts of oxygen from traveling throughout your body.

Symptoms that indicate your body is suffering from low iron may include:

  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Moodiness
  • Headaches
  • Pale skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty concentrating.

Green vegetables_Energize-My-BodyFortunately, fending off iron deficiency anemia is often as simple as getting your body the iron it needs. Many people turn to iron supplements and may feel the improved effects of increased iron within as little as a few days.Supplements are great, but natural sources of iron are abundant in your favorite grocery store produce department. Leafy green vegetables like spinach, Swiss chard, parsley and kale are all rich sources of iron, as is watermelon. The Detox Lounge, San Diego’s No. 1 provider of organic raw foods, makes high-iron foods available at our raw foods kitchen and in the juices that make up our True Juice Cleanse.


Spinach and kale are primary ingredients in a juice called Energize My Body, a green drink that also combines the juices of green apples, cucumber, celery, mint and collard juice. Fuel My Body features juices of spinach, green leaf lettuce, kale and parsley, along with cucumber, celery, romaine, green bell pepper, fennel, lemon, cilantro and organic balsamic vinegar juice. Motivate My Body provides spinach and kale along with carrot, cucumber, orange, celery, beet and rainbow chard juices.

Those three pre-bottled concoctions are half of a daily True Juice Cleanse, and they provide a healthy dose of the recommended daily intake of iron. As always, consult with your physician to learn more about your body’s dietary needs.Learn more about the health benefits of leafy green vegetables at the Detox Lounge from raw food chef Chris Antes. Call 619-255-2927 or stop by our store on J Street in downtown San Diego.

Juice Cleanse

By Cheryl Cason

Even juice cleanse enthusiasts will tell you that the process of creating your concoctions can be a hassle. From buying a juicer to shopping for organic fruits and vegetables, maintaining a juice cleanse can be a time-demanding – albeit worthwhile – ritual to achieve better health.

Weight-Loss: Lucuma

By Cheryl Cason

Weight-loss plans often include steering clear of anything that might appear on a dessert tray. In many minds, the rule of thumb is simple: the better it tastes, the worse it is for your weight-loss goals.

As simple and misguided as that mentality might be, nature is ripe with examples that can serve as the exception to the rule. There are numerous naturally sweetened treats that please the palate without compromising your weight-loss goals. They start out on trees or plants around the globe and end up on the dessert menu.

One of the lesser-known examples is lucuma, a fruit known by various names but renowned for its subtly sweet taste. Native to the Andes region, lucuma is used in many foods for its maple and caramel undertones. In South America it’s a popular ice cream flavor, and is often used in the making of custards and puddings.

At the Detox Lounge, we mix it with chai tea, coconut milk, maca root and fresh ginger to create Chai Coconut Bliss, one of the all-natural teas that make up our Master Weight-Loss Cleanse. The mixture is a delicious concoction that cleanses and restores your body while giving your taste buds a burst of excitement.

Lucuma weight-lossBeyond its uniquely sweet taste, lucuma also provides a number of other health benefits that make it a great addition to any diet, whether your goal is to lose weight or just improve your general health. Look at some of the other things that lucuma can do for you:

  • Lucuma is packed with 14 essential vitamins and nutrients, including potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
  • Lucuma is high in fiber, so it’s great in aiding digestion.
  • Lucuma has been used medicinally throughout South America for generations, as an extract to help heal wounds and combat aging skin.

Learn more about lucuma at San Diego’s No. 1 juice cleanse and gourmet raw food store, the Detox Lounge. For more information, call 619.255.2927 or visit www.detoxlounge.com.

Raw Honey Weight Loss

By Cheryl Cason

In a society bombarded with late-night weight-loss infommercials and high-priced pharmaceuticals promising weight-loss miracles, there’s an irony to the existence of an all-natural ingredient like honey.

The sweet, golden syrup is known more for being Pooh Bear’s favorite treat than it is a trigger to encourage weight loss, but the reality is that honey – particularly in its organic, raw form – boasts a number of qualities that make it a valuable part of any fat-fighting diet plan. In addition to helping maintain a healthy heart, sooth wounds, and counter pollen allergies, honey helps promote weight loss on a number of levels.

  • Honey provides a natural burst of energy, a leading reason why it’s a breakfast staple to many people. For that same reason, it also provides a needed boost before and after intense exercise sessions.
  • Honey slowly releases glycogen, which is essential for the body to get quality, restful sleep. Studies have shown that people who sleep poorly are at risk for obesity, Type 2 diabetes and various other serious health conditions.
  • By promoting the growth of good bacteria in the intestinal tract, honey helps the digestive process, and thus helps people find balance in their diet.

Because of these weight-loss benefits, raw honey is a featured ingredient in three of the five teas and elixirs that make up the Master Weight-Loss Cleanse at the Detox Lounge. It’s mixed with lemon, pineapple, cayenne pepper and fulvic acid to make Tropical Heat, a mixture that helps boost metabolism while cleansing the digestive tract. Raw honey is blended with schizandra berry tea, lemons, Fruits of the Earth by HealthForce Nutritionals, and ionic trace minerals to concoct Vitality Splash, another metabolism-boosting mixture packed with antioxidants. And in Bloom Berry, raw honey is teamed with hibiscus flower, Truly Vitamin C by HealthForce Nutritionals, and elderberry tea to make a drink that detoxifies the body and purifies the skin.

All of the drinks are as delicious as they are healthy, in large part because of the wonders of an ingredient like raw honey.

Naturally sweet; remarkably healthy.

No infommercials necessary.
