Juice Fasting to Kick the Habits Which Keep You From Natural Health


If you are feeling tired, stressed, overweight, bloated, lethargic, toxic, then juice fasting and colon cleansing could be just the thing to help you start achieving abundant natural health with a significantly healthier and happier mind.

If like many people you’ve tried diets or giving up coffee, sugar, wheat, alcohol or any number of foods to improve your health and failed on the first day. Then one of the bonuses of juice fasting is that there’s an opportunity for a complete break from the habits and conditions that make it so hard to change what we’re eating. It’s a powerful way to free yourself from habitual patterns, giving you a clean slate from which to choose and design your diet and lifestyle to one that really serves you. So you can get the most out of your life. Often during juice detoxing there is also lightness and mental clarity, which gives insight into the way we are not aligned to what serves us mentally and emotionally. Taking the time out of busy lives to detox gives you the opportunity to experience for yourself, insights into what brings your life more in line with who you really are.

Fasting and detoxing is a safe, time-tested means for cleansing, detoxifying and rejuvenating the whole digestive system to restore your body to optimum health, improve energy levels and give you a chance to get back on track and in touch with your body. It’s like giving your system a re-boot. So much easier to program-in natural health habits because your system will give you feedback immediately as to what gives you energy, and what takes it away. So it becomes about your experience of what works for you, rather than an idea about what is healthy or what you should be eating.

Juice fasting is not technically a FAST. A fast implies that you consume no food. However, during a juice fast, you are consuming plenty of food. It just happens to be in liquid form only. This allows you to get the maximum amount of nutrition while still allowing the digestive organs time to rest and heal. A juice fast is a liquid, nourishing diet consisting of solely juices and water. There is no restriction on the amount of juice that can be consumed. It shouldn’t happen that you feel hungry during a juice fast. In fact, you should feel quite satisfied. But the most noticeable effect is that of feeling lighter and more energetic. Juice fasting and colon cleansing is the fastest, most effective method to break those habits which keep you from vibrant, abundant natural health. Even though it seems drastic, it’s a lot easier than you think to detox your way to natural health.

 It is not uncommon to experience many benefits from cleansing, such as:

    •    More efficient digestion
    •    Increased clarity of mind
    •    Over-all feeling of improved health
    •    More radiant complexion and fewer blemishes
    •    Balanced pH and blood sugar levels
    •    Strengthened immune system
    •    Loss of cravings for sugar and other stimulants
    •    Improve cellular repair and regeneration
    •    Diminished pains and allergies
    •    Blood, tissue and organ cleansing
    •    Restored liver function capacity
    •    Increased energy and vitality
    •    Slow down the aging process

3 Benefits Of The Juice Diet

If you’ve ever seen the hugely popular and influential documentary film ‘Fat, Sick, and nearly Dead’, you’ll understand firsthand just why juicing is becoming such a hugely popular dietary choice. If you’re not familiar with the documentary, the basic premise is that a man by the name of Joe Cross, decides that he’s tired of being overweight, unhealthy, and having to rely on medication to treat an autoimmune skin disease he suffers from, and decides to eat no whole foods for an entire 90 days, and instead get all of his nutrients from nothing but pure fruit and vegetable juices.

By the end of the 90 days, Joe looks great, is far, far healthier, has lost a huge amount of body fat, and perhaps most importantly of all, is the fact that his autoimmune disease appears to have been eradicated, meaning that he no longer has to take several forms of medication a day. Since then, the sales of juicers has gone through the roof all over the world, and when you read about just a few of the many, many benefits associated with the juice diet, you’ll understand exactly why it’s becoming so popular.

  • Juicing helps to strengthen the immune system – The immune system is the body’s natural defence against illness and disease. The weaker an immune system, the more susceptible a body is to germs and viruses, meaning it’ll be far more likely to develop an illness or disease. The stronger an immune system, the less likely a body is to become ill. The fruits and vegetables that you consume in each juice are absolutely jam-packed full of natural goodness including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These ingredients are all hugely beneficial for the immune system and help to strengthen and boost it, making you less likely to get sick.
  • Juicing is a great way of losing weight – When you juice, the foods you consume are all naturally extremely low in fat, meaning you’re following a virtually fat-free diet, whilst super charging your nutrient intake. These nutrients help to speed up the metabolism, and when you combine that with the fact that you’re consuming virtually no fat whatsoever, you won’t be surprised to learn that the weight literally falls off you. It isn’t common for a person to lose around 20lbs in 10 days on this diet.
  • You look and feel great on the juice diet – You know what people say ‘you are what you eat’, and when you actually think about this for a moment, it makes perfect sense. When you consume vast quantities of junk food, you feel and look awful. Your skin becomes greasy, pale, blotchy and spotty, your hair becomes dry, and you find yourself feeling lazy and lethargic, unable to motivate yourself to complete even the most trivial of tasks. As the fruits and vegetables you’re drinking on the juice diet are packed full of so much goodness however, within 3 days you’ll notice your energy levels increasing, your skin and hair looking and feeling healthier, and you’ll even find yourself able to think clearer as well.

Juice Cleanse Retreats

For those who would like to go full ‘Juice Cleanse’ this is an option available for your program.

Juice cleansing is an effective way to fast without going to extremes. Juices provide the body with absorbable nutrients it needs during the fast with enough calories to fuel the detox process.

A Juice cleanse gives your elimination system a chance to rest and recuperate from overworking. The liver and kidneys when given a rest will generally function better, and the body will use less energy trying to digest food it normally digests.

Juice cleansing has many benefits, including a general sense of feeling better to alleviating specific health conditions, and can be safely practised for up to a month under guided conditions.

    As pollution is getting severer, people’s interest in natural food is higher than ever. Green juice made of raw fruits or vegetables is now very popular, especially among the adults concerned about their health. Green juice is the juice in which fibrous cells are removed for body’s absorption of essential nutrients. Because no heat or other types of recipe are added or made, it contains lots of vitamins, minerals and calcium, etc. Continuous taking of green juice may improve and normalize the weakened physical condition.

    It is also helpful in that it toughens the immune system preventing many adult diseases like cancer, hypertension, diabetes. More than these, it is effective on obesity, stress, skin-care.

    When taken as it is, the absorptivity of greenish yellow vegetables is only 17% and it takes about 3 hours to digest. However, that of green juice is up to 67% and it only takes 15 minutes. For good ingredients, the vegetables need to be seasonal and organic ones.

    How to take may bring about different results. It should be taken promptly before meal in the morning and not to be mixed with water nor be put in the refrigerator. Daily requirement is from 500 to 800cc. Unless otherwise used for specific purpose, the ideal rate of mixture is 70 to 80% of carrot and kale plus 20 to 30% of angelica keiskei, cabbage, asparagus, dandelion and crown daisy. When the taste is too rough and unpleasant to the palate, fruits can be added.

    Green juice will not be expected to be used as treatment purpose; it is just one of the health food. For those who are suffering chronic liver diseases like hepatitis or hepatic cirrhosis, green juice must be takes with caution.

  4. Selena

    I agree that Juicing helps improve the immune system. I felt a lot better when I juiced. It takes a while to get used to drink the juice especially if your not a veggie eater. I think it is wiser to use more veggies then fruit in your juice mix.

  5. Jade

    People don’t realise just how great it is! I find myself convincing my girlfriends all the time that this deserves their attention and they need to give it a go for their own good.

  6. Diana

    I have never done a Juice diet, I was worried about consuming too many calories through high sugar fruit.
    I have had juices and my fave it a low calorie, Celery, apple and spinach with a bit of cinnamon.

  7. Jane

    I don’t feel really confident when it comes to trying this kind of diets . But after reading this topic I will try a juice diet as soon as possible .

  8. Karina

    I have previously tried green smoothies as a replacement for breakfast however I have never done a whole 90 days only juice diet. I will have to look further into this though as it is something I am extremely interested in – who wouldn’t want the associated benefits?

  9. Anna Dawson

    Thank you for this article! I live in Hollywood where there is a juice bar on every corner and on every street and even a part of the menu at regular restaurants! I’ve seen a lot of people go on dangerous juice cleanses and lemonade diets out here, only to lose a lot of hard earned lean muscle mass and not only gain back the water weight they lost, but gain double and even triple the amount of weight lost while juicing. I think juicing as part of an otherwise balanced diet is great! I stick mainly to green juices to avoid the high sugar content of the fruit containing juices unless it is immediately post a boot-camp like workout!

  10. Julie

    Wow that is really amazing! I want to find out more. I bookmarked this page and share it with my friend. Maybe we can try the juice diet together! I could stand to lose about sixty pounds myself. 20 in a week sounds almost unbelievable. I’d like to know what’s in that juice diet drink and how much you are supposed to consume each day. I would be concerned about feeling hungry but that is the kind of food people should be having anyway. Greens are one of the best things for you! There are so many nutrients and good health benefits from consuming them.

  11. Kiyah

    Seems like really nice benefits to drink juice and actually lose weight. I will try this out to lose some weight.

  12. Katherin

    I tried this a while back and it actually worked great. I lost a few pounds in a pretty short time period. The only bad thing was I started getting tired of the taste of fruit. Luckily there are so many types of fruit that you can buy. I’ll probably be trying this again before long cause although the diet wasn’t much fun, it worked great.

  13. Amanda

    I agree, juicing really is a great way to lose weight. I’ve replaced my lunch ( and sometimes my breakfast) with vegetable-based juices and have lost weight (15lbs) and have kept it off for months now.

  14. Christine

    Anyone have any recipe suggestions? I’ve been meaning to get into this, but I don’t know where to start and recipes to use.
