The Benefits of Juice Cleansing

With the help of certain fruit juices it is possible to detoxify the body. You will receive more mental, emotional and spiritual awareness. It is also possible to feel more energized as the body has been given some time to rest and rejuvenate. As a result you can have healthier looking skin and more energy. Whether or not you have a healthy lifestyle, detoxifying the body through juice cleansing has many added benefits. 

As well as detoxifying the whole body, juice cleansing gives the liver a chance to reduce its workload. As a result it will work better too. The liver is a primary organ for carrying out the process of detoxification on a regular basis. Giving it a rest now and again will only help it to help you keep a clean body. As well opting for juice cleansing and allowing your liver to rest gives the added benefit of an improvement in your skin as well as more mental clarity.

It is important that the juice is fresh and not pasteurized as pasteurizing is done using high heat which ends up destroying the vital nutrients in the juice.  Juice cleansing, or fasting, helps to give your digestive system a rest. It takes less energy to absorb the nutrients. As a result you will get a sense of renewed energy after you have completed a juice cleanse.

During a juice cleanse it is possible to experience some side effects that although unpleasant are just part of the process. You may notice that you have a stronger body odor and bad breath. Pimples may appear on different areas of your body. This is just the way your body is trying to release toxins. You may also experience more gas as yeast or parasites die off. Not to worry though, as this is only temporary and an indication that your body is detoxing.

Juice Cleansing

juice cleansingMake sure when you are juice cleansing that you use a broad variety of fruits and vegetables in a combination that will enhance your health.  One of my favorite juice combinations is 1 carrot, 2 stalks of celery, 1 apple and a tomato.

There are a number of different combinations to try and you will probably want to experiment to find your favorite.  One of the books I use to get ideas for juice combinations can be found in Steve Meyerowitz’s book Juice Fasting and Detoxification.

Often our fruits and vegetables are covered in pesticides, parasites and bacteria especially if they are not grown organically.  There are a number of ways that you can make sure that you don’t eat any of these by cleaning your fruits and vegetables first.

One of the easiest ways is to use a homemade solution using white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide (food grade quality only). Mix the solution half and half and either spray your fruits and vegetables or soak them for a few minutes.

Another easy way to clean your fruits and vegetables is to use a boiling water bath.  However this won’t work on fragile fruits and vegetables.  Dip them into boiling water for only 5-10 seconds to kill any bacteria and as well to remove waxes.  Make sure you use a pair of tongs.

In the long run when juice cleansing the body gets rejuvenated and as well our digestive organs get to have a well-deserved rest.  We end up with healthier looking skin, better sleep, more mental clarity and in some people, reduced allergic reactions.
