Juicing for Detox
Detox & Cleansing
In this post we will be focusing on “DETOX”
To detox means to cleanse, to get rid of the bad stuff currently in your system to prepare the way for healing.
Fresh, raw, un-preserved juices contain all the amino acids, minerals, enzymes and
vitamins the body needs to nourish and regenerate cells, tissues, glands, and organs,
with a minimum of digestive effort. Fruit juices are the cleansers of the human system;
vegetable juices are the builders and regenerators.
A four to eight-ounce glass of raw fruit or vegetable juice not only provides all the healing
nutrients that have been isolated so far, but all the ones man has yet to discover. Plus,
it provides them in their living, organic, alkaline, whole, complete, balanced form.
Why not just eat the vegetables and fruit? You’ll understand that the first time you juice. It
takes over a pound of carrots to generate a single glass of carrot juice! Could you eat
that much in one sitting?
But that single glass is full of easy-to-digest, rapidly assimilated, concentrated
nutrients that go to work immediately to start healing the body by nourishing the
bloodstream. When a body is in a weakened state, even fruits and vegetables can be
difficult to digest. But juiced foods require little or no digestion, so the healing nutrients
of the raw fruits and vegetables are readily available for assimilation into the
bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract.
The best juice is freshly made. It is best to dilute fruit juices 25-50% with distilled
water. Freshly made, full-strength juice is concentrated and should be considered
Don’t be fooled by commercially produced juices –– they just don’t measure up. They
are pasteurized, which means the vegetables or fruits have been heated above 120oF.
While this partially breaks down the fiber and makes them more easily assimilated, it
also destroys all enzymes or oxygen. Plus, most commercial juices contain food
