Meghan Mella of Houma is a certified medical Esthetician and massage therapist who specializes in Thai massage, lymphatic drainage, orthopedic, Lomi-Lomi, and aromatherapy. Meghan is also the busy mother of a four-year-old daughter, a yoga instructor and a Reiki Master. She truly believes in the research that surrounds allowing the body to reset organically for overall mental and physical health. Meghan chose to invest in the Root2Rise Just Juice Reset because it is fresh, nutrient dense and created by a nationally registered and state licensed dietitian, Leah Porche. As a skin specialist, Meghan explains that resetting the body is also great for the skin as it rids the body of toxins. She was asked to document her personal experience throughout her Root2Rise 3-day Just Juice Reset experience, and her results are no less than inspiring.
Meghan felt energetic and did not experience food craving at all. Her energy declined after noon, but after drinking the carrot-beet juice, she felt energized. She felt content and ready for sleep at the end of her first evening.
Day two was the most difficult day. She had a morning headache and was both moody and hungry. However, her feelings were not enough to overpower her will to continue with the reset. Meghan explains that she shifted into an “emotional detox.” She stayed strong through moments of weakness from practicing yoga and studying philosophies that helped her mindfully persevere in discomfort. She explains that her lifestyle of studying yoga and holistic modalities allowed her to respect that the “discomfort will not last forever.”
Because she had several moments of high stress at work, she felt discomfort and the temptation of emotional eating. She resisted, and her headaches went away around noon. She was still uncomfortable, but able to get through her evening routine.
Meghan awoke full of energy and continued to have energy all day. She giggled and said, “I was craving the R2R Kale Storm salad, but I knew I could have it on on Friday!”
“As an experienced ‘cleanser,’ the organization of the Root2Rise Just Juice reset helped me control my cravings.” Meghan lost 10 pounds, and noticed that after her 3 day reset, she no longer craves unhealthy foods and sugars. She also feels empowered; “I can tackle my emotional connection to food because I feel so good after only drinking juice for 3 days!”
