Juice cleanse your body. Resources to detoxify your body through juicing.
A juice cleanse is beneficial for most people these days. Because our earth and food are not pure, it proves harmful to our bodies. Our diets include processed foods, chemicals, and non-organic substances.
A cleansing diet is needed because we constantly breathe in voc’s, toxic air, smoke and fumes. And while our bodies are always removing these toxins, it becomes increasingly harder the older we get. These un-natural substances build up inside our bodies and cause many different health problems. This makes it necessary to cleanse internally. You wouldn’t go a long time without cleaning your external body, right? Think about how dirty your internal body must be if you’ve never done a cleanse.
While body cleansing does go hand in hand with detoxing and fasting, there are many times when we want to cleanse a specific part of our body. We might want to do this to detoxify an area to get it “flowing” again, or we might have a problem in that area. This is when specific juice cleanses come in handy.
Keep in mind that your body is constantly eliminating…it has a flow to it, to make it function properly, just like clockwork. You must make sure all of your normal elimination channels are open for a cleanse to work properly, or you will experience some ill effects.
Make sure your bowels are functioning properly, and if not, above all else, start with a full body detox or colon cleanse.
There are many ways you can cleanse your body. A detox diet plan, juice fasting or a specific juice cleanse. Here are different options, cleansing plans and recipes to get you started.
udies have shown that doing periodic juice fasting aids in good health, longevity, young looks and weight management. It’s also easy (some might say rejuvenating, too)!
Why juice fasting?
It’s an excellent way to lose weight and cleanse the body of toxins. It’s been esteemed for centuries. It can make you feel lighter, happier, healthier and more focused.
Make no mistake about it- it’s the number one healer and rejuvenator!
It allows your body and tortured digestive tract to take a break. By taking in only these nutritional cups of joy, our body takes advantage of this opportunity to work on the inside.
Many people do it for health and wellness, mental clarity, spiritual reasons or to lose weight. Consider your motives for fasting and focus on that while you go through your fast. You’ll realize you’re doing a great thing for your body, and it won’t last forever. It requires determination, discipline and commitment.
