OH! Juice Story
OH! Juice believes every sip should taste as good as it is good for you, that’s why their chef, Hanna Gregor is also their nutritionist. Hanna was tired of trying to defend the idea of cleansing and realized she had to create cleanses that really worked. Cleanses that people truly enjoyed, improved people’s health, jumpstarted their lifestyles and weren’t based upon cheap sugary fruits, but instead from strong alkalizing veggies, exotic spices, and rare super foods.
OH! Juice invests in the best ingredients, materials and machinery. Creating recipes and operating standards around these core principles has guidedOH! Juice to provide you with the highest quality juices on the market today.
3 Day Juice Cleanse (Transition/Beginner Cleanse)
A collection of six different nutrient-rich juices (fruit, maca milk, chia tea, green coffee bean) each bottle is packed with 2-3 pounds of raw, cold-pressed, 100% organic produce. The job of this cleanse is to begin flushing the body’s system of unwanted toxins, retrain the taste buds and motivate the mind into understanding that it’s a major part of living a healthy lifestyle.
5 Day Juice Cleanse (Expert Cleanse) An assortment of individual juices that are emphasized on dark leafy greens and vegetables and less of the sweeter fruits and milks. The increase in greens allows for a deeper detoxification process, as dark leafy greens are known for binding and pulling toxins out of the body. This cleanse is a challenge for first time cleansers who love to drink their salads and perfect for experienced cleansers looking to take it up a notch.

Vegan Diet was the decided diet for week one of our 30 Day Cleanse. Giving up flesh, animal protein, dairy and all animal products has numerous health benefits. If done right the vegan diet can be easier on your digestion, healthier for your body, and better for the planet. There are tips to follow to make sure you are doing it in the healthiest way possible and make it an easy transition.
Preparing for a Vegan Diet doesnt require much additional work besides adjusting your shopping list. The most important thing to remember is when you remove the animal protien from your diet replace it with plant based protein and NOT processed foods, meat substitutes, excessive grains, sugars or junk food. The best plant based protein options to replace animal proteins are Lentils, Beans, Quinoa and Fermented Soy. Its also important to make sure your increase vegetables and other plant based foods higher in protiens like Green Peas, Spinach, Broccoli, Beans, Nuts like almonds, cashews, & pistachios. Be very cautious of not over doing the grains particularly wheat, gluten, white flour etc. Many meat alternatives are wheat and gluten based and can be terrible for weight loss and digestion. Try to refrain from eating soy based meat alternatives and a lot of the processed "Vegan" products on the market they really are not very good for you but more or less preying on the consumer. Tempeh is a safe form but stay away from Tofu and soy milk.
Because meat tends to be pricier then other foods you will save $$$ on this diet particularly if you choose NOT to spend the extra money on meat alternatives. Spend the saved money on Organic produce as well as nuts and seeds. Eating out is still an option and there are many amazing vegan and vegetarian resteraunts so save for some of those splurges. If it is within your budget you can always use a food delivery service and refine your dietary needs as well as variety but make sure you explain some of the above dietary needs like Soy Free, Gluten Free, Wheat Free etc.
Read more about what it means to truly go Vegan often people mistake it with being vegetarian which is not the case. To truly be Vegan you must give up any and all foods, casings, clothing, products, or supplements that use animal in anyway that includes dairy, animal protein, certain supplements, etc. Get ready to read labels alot of meat substitutes like to use things like casein or whey, gelatin and natural red 4 all of which are not truly vegan. On these Labels is where you will also find the hidden ingredients like Wheat, White Flour, or Soy so keep an eye out for labels or better yet try to eat as few packaged foods as possible.

Vegetarian and Vegan based diets have become very popular recently in main stream media not just because of the obvious humane treatment of animals but because of the amazing health benefits most all experience on this primarily plant based diet. Many celebrities have expressed their appreciation for the lifestyle and testified to the anti aging, weight loss, increased energy and overall health benefits achieved on these plant based diets. We also cant help acknowledge that most of these celebrities have been able to maintain a healthy weight, youthful appearance, and the vital energy we have come to desire as a society.
Alicia Silverstone, Alanis Morissette, Anne Hathaway, Carey Underwood, Christie Brinkley, Diane Keaton, Ellen Degeneres, Jared Leto, Joaquin Phoenix, Michelle Pfeiffer, Moby, Pamela Anderson, Prince, Russell Simmons, Samuel L. Jackson, Woody Harrelson and recently America’s Sweetheart BEYONCE!
Famous QuarterBack Joe Namath, Tennis Player Martina Navratilova, NBA Great Robert Parish, MLB Baseball Player Prince Fielder, Iron Man World Champ Dave Scott, Track Star Carl Lewis, & an even more impressive Raw Vegan Venus Williams Tennis Superstar!
It cant be denied that the absence of animal protein is easier on your digestion since animal protein takes longer to break down, digest, and remove from your gastro intestinal track then other plant based foods. Plant based foods also tend to have more variety of nutritional benefit and serve a multitude of purposes within the body while supporting multiple functions. Plant based foods like Nuts, Seeds, Fruits and Veggies are so beneficial to your organ function, immune system,and optimal wellbeing so it is recommended to make them a minimum of 2/3rds of your diet.
Unfortunately, after giving up animal Protein some Vegans and Vegetarians make grains, soy, and processed foods a larger part of their diet as opposed to replacing the animal protein with the fruits and veggies as the vegetarian diet was originally designed. These food items can be just if not more harmful to the body and the digestive track if eaten in excess then animal protein. If you are making the vegan or vegetarian diet your lifestyle always remember a true vegetarian replaces animal protein with additional plant based foods primarily fruits and veggies for the best results and long term health.
What is the Raw Food Diet and Cleanse?
I am a huge advocate of the Raw Food Diet wether you decide to go 100% Raw or much less it is still extremely beneficial to the bodies composition and digestion. Its my belief that Raw, God Made foods are what our bodies were originally designed to eat and therefore have the most nutritional benefit, healing effects, and best results to our overall health and digestion.
Raw Food usually refers to eating primarily Raw Planted Based Foods like Fruits, Veggies, Nuts Seeds, Sprouted Grains and Legumes. Uncooked foods tend to retain most of their nutritional value as opposed to cooking or steaming out the useful vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients. The more nutritional value in the foods you eat the more nourished your body will be. Feeding our cells with proper nutrients is the number one purpose of any diet after all.
The Raw Diet can be an effective form of cleansing for someone new to the process, allowing your body the satisfaction of a full tummy with the cleansing benefits of a higher vegetable diet. Often times when having a primarily raw diet it is recommend to compensate with fresh green juice to add more calories in your daily diet. Fresh Green Juices can also add cleansing effects and speed up the process. When using the Raw Food Diet for Cleansing you can often experience detox effects like irregular bowel movements, Gas, Bloating but don't be alarmed. These side effects are your bodies natural way of releasing harmful toxins and chemicals from the organs. It is always recommended when doing the Raw Food Diet for Cleansing to incorporate a Colon Hydro therapy session.
The Raw concept does not have to be an all or nothing lifestyle you can always make a fraction of your diet raw to help with digestion, stimulate daily cleansing, support your organ function and maintain healthy weight. 30-60% of your diet should be Raw plant based foods and you will notice an immediate difference if it is.
Some of the results our clients have regularly experienced are:
Reduced Pain, Swelling & Inflammation
Disease and Illness Healing and Prevention

First, what exactly is a superfood?
Though there is no legal or medical definition, super-foods are nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. People who eat them regularly are generally considered healthier and thinner than those who don’t, as well as prolong life and avoid disease. Here are the top three overall as well as some that will assist in healthier more effective digestion:
They contain lycopene, an antioxidant rarely found in other foods. Studies suggest that they could protect the skin against harmful UV rays, prevent certain cancers, and lower cholesterol. Plus, tomatoes are high in potassium, fiber and Vitamin C.
These berries are loaded with phytonutrients and antioxidants that neutralize free radicals (agents that cause aging and cell damage). They may also protect against cancer and reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Kale offers a type of phytonutrient that seems to lessen the occurrence of a variety of cancers, including breast and ovarian. Specifically, scientists believe this nutrient triggers the liver to produce enzymes that neutralize potentially cancer causing substances.
Ginger can effectively treat a variety of gastrointestinal discomforts. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties can curb digestive spasms, gas, indigestion, nausea and bloating.
Sauerkraut (fermented cabbage) contains an array of nutrients and strains of probiotics and does an exceptional job of cleaning and supplying your gut with beneficial bacterial so that it can heal and work efficiently.
Do you suffer from Gas & Bloating?
Not only can gas and bloating be uncomfortable and embarrassing but it is also often unsightly. Even the thinnest of people can look 10 pounds heavier when severely bloated. So what causes gas & how do you prevent it?
What Causes Gas?
A certain amount of gas is normal in the intestines as it happens naturally when we digest foods which is why it is important to watch what we eat. Uncomfortable gas and bloating is abnormal though. This type of gas and bloating is a sign of bigger problems like:
Exposure to toxins and chemicals
Antibiotic use etc.
The primary culpret though is harmful bacterias , chemicals, & parasites living or trapped in the colon wall and producing smelly or severe gas and bloating.
How to Prevent Gas & Bloating?
Cleanse your Colon:
Since the harmful bacterias and chemicals are what continue to cause the problem you must first remove them thoroughly from the colon wall if you want to see immediate or long term results. A colonic is the most effective way to cleanse your colon and is something you can do today. Not to mention it also helps heal your digestion, hydrate the body and the average person can lose anywhere from 5-15 pounds Just check out the photos of these women after a colonic cleansing. Schedule one today!
Clean up you diet:
Chemically Processed foods, white flour, & white sugar all feed dangerous bacterias that live in your colon so stay away from those type of foods. Try eating more natural foods like organic fruits and veggies and whole grains.
Drinking water helps to naturally clean the bowel wall of any chemicals or toxins. You should be drinking an average of half your body weight in ounces to be accurately hydrating.
Reintroducing healthy good bacteria into the Colon is a great way to start reducing gas and bloating. Taking a digestive probiotic supplement daily just make sure it is enteric coated for best results.
Are You Storing Hidden Inflammation in your Body?
If you are suffering from inflammation finding a way to reduce that inflammation is crucial because nearly EVERY modern disease is either caused or affected by inflammation in your body. If your body is storing that inflammation in your Lymphatic Stream as opposed to dissolving it on your own you are headed toward illness, disease, & premature aging. Since we know inflammation stores in the lymphatic stream it is most important to find the cause of the inflammation and restore your lymphatic streams natural balance.
There can be many causes for inflammation from:
*Infections and virus’s
*Bacterias like yeast or candida
*Pain or physical trauma
*Emotional, Physical, or Mental Stresses
*Food or Environmental Allergies
*Lack of exercise and Stagnant lifestyle
*Toxins such as liver/gallbladder bile, pesticides/ herbicides, Mercury, & Pollution
Knowing these root causes of inflammation allows us to minimize our intake or contact with these triggers.
But what do we do with the damage that has already been done to our lymphatic stream and how do we quickly reverse the problem?
Most importantly we must cleanse and purifiy the Lymph Stream from the inside out.
Revolutionary Equipment like Electro-Lymphatic Drainage allows us to send Electro Magnetic Impulses up to 2 1/2 Inches into the Lymphatic stream to break up any congestion and inflammation the body is storing. Not only does it break up the inflammation to allow your body to dissolve it but it physically drains the inflammation out of your body all together. Imagine? Years of built up inflammation draining from your body from just a massage-like treatment?
Electro-Lymphatic Drainage has been known to help not only with inflammation but many other issues that may seem completely unrelated like:
*Illness, disease, virus’s, infection
*Swelling & Water Retention
*Pain and joint discomfort
*Auto- Immune Diseases
*Arthritus & Osteoperosis
Among many others!

Juicing in the morning does not have to be difficult or complicated. Make breakfast easy by making a simple green smoothie to start your day. Green Smoothies are a great way to get vital nutrients, lose weight and cleanse your body. All you need is the right tools and a few simple ingredients to start and it will make breakfast a whole new experience.
Buy a Blender
With so many blender options on the market a little research will help you find one thats right for you. The Nutri Bullet is simple, quick, easy and under $100. I use this in the morning because it is a time saver. Other great options are the Ninja and of course the VitaMix. Although these blenders are far superior they are larger and clean up takes longer. You can also use whatever you already have in your cupboard no need to spend extra money.
Use Green Ingredients:
Green Foods are the most important staple to the Green Smoothie. Leafy, nutrient dense veggies are the best. I recommend leafy greens like Kale, Spinach, Broccoli Leaf, Dandelion greens, & Chard. You can add 1, 2, or all of these greens to a smoothie but the most important fact is that 2/3rds of your smoothie should be these greens.
Mmm Mmm Fruit:
Fruit is what can change the flavor of your smoothie and make it delicious particularly for someone new to Green Smoothies. Although fruit shouldn't be more then 1/3rd of the entire smoothie content there are some fruits that can really adjust the taste and make it sweet. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie I recommend Pineapple, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Blueberries, Strawberries and even Avocado.
Add a boost:
Fruits and veggies should be your primary source of nutrition in your smoothie but you can add supplements to your smoothie to make it a complete meal and whole food source. I add Supplements like Fiber, Vegan Protein, Chlorophyll, Coconut Oil, and so much more.
Simple Green Smoothie Recipe:
4 Small Kale Leaves
8-10 Dandelion Green Leaves
2 Large Broccoli Leafs
2 Cubes Watermelon
2 Cubes Papaya
Small Handful of Blueberries
1 Tsp of Ground Chia and Flax
1 Scoop Warrior Blend Vegan Protein
10 Drops Liquid Chlorophyll
Coconut Water and water
Blend and Enjoy!
