Tips For Your Juice Fasting Regimen

Dec 13, 2007
Juice fasting or juicing, is rapidly becoming one of the most popular ways to purify the body and lose weight. Juicing allows the body to flush away toxins while still providing essential vitamins and minerals. However, if done incorrectly, this cleansing and detoxification program can seriously harm your health. In this article, we'll explain why juicing can benefit your health and how you can do it safely.

Cells are like tiny sponges that absorb the elements you breathe, eat, drink and apply to skin. Synthetic chemicals and processed foods inhibit the body's natural ability to expel toxins. It cleanses the body, while supplying a dramatic increase in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes. These elements attach to anything harmful in the body and flushes it out.

A juice fast is believed to cleanse both the body and mind by encouraging the function of the body's natural regenerative abilities. In fact, some people believe that a fluid diet can cure serious diseases such as cancer, leukemia, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, skin infections, liver disorders, alcoholism and smoking.

A longer fluid fast will enable the body to cleanse toxins that have been accumulating in your cellular tissues from birth. The length of the fast can range anywhere from three to forty days and the amount of juice you drink will determine the intensity of cleansing. Drinking small amounts of juice supplies fewer calories, thereby increasing the detox body cleansing.

Juice fasting can include fresh juice, herbal or detox teas sweetened with honey, vegetable broth, wheat grass fluid, and supplements helpful to your specific condition. You may consider modifying the fast by including slices of avocado or banana to slow down the cleansing process.

A modified fluid diet is good for those with health restrictions such as diabetes or hypoglycemia. Bananas and avocados are slow to digest and will maintain a stable blood sugar level.

Although there are benefits to juice fasting, this body cleanse also has some side effects. These may include backaches due to increased toxins in the lower intestine. Some people experience bad breath and cankers.

Diarrhea is a common complaint because fruit juices have a natural laxative effect. Blackouts is a serious side effect. To stop a blackout, get down on one knee or sit. To avoid these side effects, see a doctor before you begin the fasting program.

Most of the processed foods eaten today produces a lot of toxins in our systems. If you allow those toxins to continue to accumulate in your body, you can experience low energy, suffer aches and pains and have a poor memory. Fortunately, you can reverse this physical erosion by fasting and eating healthier foods. Juice fasting is one way to body cleanse.

Fasting cleans and regulates your colon, helps with weight loss, strengthens your immune system and increases energy levels. A tasty glass of fluid is all it takes to put yourself on the road to a better life.
