The juice fast diet. We've got answers. Read on :)

juice fast diet

Have you been thinking of starting a juice fast diet? Or are you already on a full body detox?

Either way, you’re off to the right start. Getting information to help yourself juice cleanse your body will do a world of good for your health. 

A fasting diet has been a recommended mode of healing for thousands of years. At times, its still seems extremely misunderstood by many.

A juice detox is not a starving or depriving oneself. It actually can quickly help your body’s abilty to heal, repair and rejuvenate.

Knowing how to cleanse properly is key, and it’s not hard.

The most important things to remember is you must prepare for your fast by eating a clean and light diet and also reintroduce food gently once the fast is over.

Benefits of a fasting diet

Studies have shown and doctors have observed that juice fasting accomplishes relief of symptoms for many people. Here is a list of a few things that fasting has proved beneficial for:

  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Asthma
  • ADD
  • Blood sugar (hypo and hyperglycemia)
  • Candida
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Gastrointestinal problems like colitis, crohn’s, diverticulosis, reflux, irritable bowel syndrome
  • Breast cysts
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Bad breath
  • Headaches
  • Heavy metal poisoning
  • High blood pressure
  • Nausea
  • Obesity
  • PMS
  • Prostate problems
  • Vision problems
  • Skin problems (like eczema, hives, psoriasis, dermatitis, psoriasis)
  • Lung /breathing issues
  • Urinary problems

How fasting works

Fasting spares your body from the energy it takes to eat, digest food and expending the waste. It’s a big job for your body. By giving your body a break from this, it automatically focuses that extra energy on cleansing. You’re body is just that smart.

During a fast, your body turns to the liver for an alternate fuel source, by converting stored sugars into glucose. Usually by the third day, these sugars are used up, and starts using stored up fat as its source.(This is why I usually recommend staying on a juice diet for at least 3-5 days)

When this happens, the benefits start…your body starts to breakdown and eliminate toxins in your fatty tissues. It reduces inflammation in the digestive tract, thins the blood (more oxygen is then delivered to your body through your blood stream), and more energy is available for other body systems to repair anything that’s wrong,

It makes sense, right? Right! If you let your body heal, it will.

Because of our environment, and how polluted our world and food have become, never has it been more important to do full body detox. Pollution and lack of nutrition bring on health issues or worsens them. Cleansing the body through a juice diet is smart to do at least once a year.

At the very least, you could try a 3 day fasting diet or a 7 day detox. For the braver souls, 30 day and 60 day juice cleanses are also popular.
