Why should I do a Juice Fast?

Posted on July 4, 2015 at 8:00 PM

 Embarking on a juice fast is one of the best ways of rebooting your metabolism and helping your detoxifying organs to function optimally. These organs include your lungs, colon, kidneys, liver, skin and brain. You heard right - even the brain. It is the main organ in the body which controls all the other organs in the body and all bodily functions. Putting the brain back in the driver seat and purging it of unnecessary stress will do wonders for your body. Thinking faster, clearer, sharper, stress management, increase memory are some of the immeasurable benefits of a healthy brain.


 Many of our appliances today have a reset button. An organic cold pressed juice fast is the quickest and easiest way to reset your body's system without damaging it. Organic nutrients are quickly absorbed into your bloodstream getting to the sites where they're needed the most. Your body is then given the upper-hand from the onslaught of toxic chemicals that have been build up over the years. We are constantly being exposed to toxins in the air; our food via pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), preservatives and highly processed foods; our water supply; and radiation whether from our immediate environment or of medical necessity. Can a person place hot coals to their chest and their clothes not burn? In the same way, exposure to these toxins cause damaging effects but, fortunately can be immobilized, if not reversed all together. These environmental and ingested toxins are the major culprits involved in weight gain, chronic diseases, systematic illnesses and disorders. Eating an organic, GMO free diet is a great way to help your body recover.


 Let's face it old habit are hard to break. A juice fast may help you to shift away from bad habits that are actually doing you more harm than good. When done properly, the rewards are endless (if you're trying to keep count). Some of the most noticeable benefits are weight loss, increased energy, a glowing healthy appearance, and the ultimate result is purging the body of some toxic buildup to name a few. How do you know that you have flushed out some toxins? Reduced pain at the site(s) of inflammation, less headaches, clearer thinking, improvement in your overall health. It is strongly advised that you consult with your physician before entering even a short term juice fast. If you are taking medication, also check to see if there may be any drug interaction with any supplement or produce item(s). We also highly recommend that women who are nursing or pregnant and children do not participate in a juice fast.
