Mim is a bit of a wizard in our parts making and creating potions to nourish and revitalise your mind, body and soul. A good friend of mine suggested I drop Mim a line as I was looking for something to reboot my focus on healthy living and self nourishment. To be honest as a mum I was looking for a “potion” of a particular sort. Lack of sleep, lack of time and lack of self commitment needed to be addressed so I went to Doctor Mim and told her my woes.
I wanted to know if she would create a five day cleanse that was specifically targeted at mothers helping us to reboot our bodies and commitment to self nourishment. Join me day to day as I do my first ever juice cleanse which is competely exciting and equally terrifying as I bench my vices of soy chai, wine and my husbands insanely good cooking.
Wish me luck x
Mim talks about how and why she created the five day mother cleanse….
My idea for targeting mother’s and mother’s to be, is to address their frustrations of being time poor, therefore not nourishing themselves with beautiful nutrient rich home cooked meals, low in energy, busy, and eating out of convenience rather than nourishment. This home delivered cleanse, make its so easy and convenient to nourish and fuel their bodies from the very first jar of goodness they receive. Alive and active nutrients from more than 3 kilos of vegetables daily being absorbed straight onto their bodies, rejuvenating, nourishing, replenishing, and naturally energizing them. Being and feeling healthier and more energized means spending more meaningful and conscious time with their children and partners.
This cleanse is the perfect support for mothers and mothers to be. Each evening a beautiful box is delivered to your door to be placed in the fridge ready for when you wake up.
Each day you will be conveniently nourish, energised, healed, supported and dosed up with a huge amount of nutrient rich potions. A cleanse will give your digestive system a break and allow it to rest. Whilst this is happening, our body is absorbing almost immediately the goodness from each potion which will naturally energise you, make you feel clearer, stronger and highly conscious of how good our body and mind feels when it is being looked after and truly nourished with goodness.

3. Dr Warburg
Who is Dr Warburg?
Dr Warburg (a winner of the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his scientific research) discovered that cancer cells cannot survive in oxygen rich environments. This means, that if we can deliver oxygen into our bodies, we are preventing the growth of cancer cells. The nitrate in beetroot delivers oxygen-rich blood throughout our body – plus with the goodness of carrots, makes this potion is a super pro-health juice!
