Detox Diet: Juice Fasting

our cholesterol levels, treat allergies, acne, etc.

In juice fasting, by giving the body a rest from food and digestion, the immune
system can focus on elimination of toxins, with the aid of the organs of elimination
(liver, pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys, intestines, skin, etc.).

During a prolonged fast (3 plus days), the body will start to burn off and digest its
own tissues by process of autolysis in a discriminate manner. It will first decompose
and burn those cells and tissues, which are diseased, damaged, aged or dead
(tumors, morbid cells, abscesses, excess fat deposits, etc.). The stomach shrinks
and becomes less acidic. Then, certain detox symptoms are experienced eg. acne
breakouts, fatigue, headaches, as the body eliminates its toxins. These symptoms
should ease and we will feel a renewed sense of health and well-being!

You can juice almost any fruit and vegetables that you can eat raw. Vegetables that
are good for juicing include tomatoes, cucumbers, celery and carrots. Fruit vegetable
combinations taste delicious. For example, apple and carrot juice makes a nice blend.
Another nice combination is apple, celery and tomato. For vegetable and fruit skins,
peel them off especially if you suspect that they have been sprayed. If you can use
organic fruits, this will be much better. Rinse off in filtered water.

How to Juice for Juice Fasting: It is recommended to dilute your juice 50/50 with
water, especially if you are using fruits and the juice is too sweet. Use filtered water,
if possible, for dilution.

Also, remember that you can't buy freshly prepared juice from a supermarket or any
juice that comes from a packet, despite what the label on the packet says. Any juice
in a carton, can or bottle has been heat treated for preservation.

Juice has to be prepared fresh! The longer the juice stays out, the less fresh raw
food enzymes it will contain. This means that you either find a store that prepares it
right before you drink it or you use a juicer yourself.

Be sure to get a really good juicer. Good juicers make tastier juices, faster and do a
better job in the extraction process. Good juicers also clean up more easily than
cheap ones.

There are in fact, many ways to go about juice fasting. The best is to consult your
health practitioner about this. Be sure to let him or her know if you are suffering from
any health ailments first before you embark on this detox diet!
