Juicing simply isn't "once size fits all" and to do that without clearance from your trusted physician or primary care provider you could be taking an unnecessary risk, especially if there is a pre-existing medical condition such as a heart disease or diabetes.
The reality is whether your core wellness philosophy embraces juice cleanses or not, it's essential to do your homework and always consult with your health professional.
Many cultures around the world historically used fasting for purification, as a devotional or as a conduit to spiritual enlightenment. However, in these instances, no nutrition is taken in. Juicing for the purposes of weight loss, improved energy, cleansing the body of toxins or cravings, and addressing allergies, skin conditions or other illness, does supply some nutritional fortification. It's what it doesn't supply, the so called toxins regularly ingested by the average consumer, that makes all the difference.
Some substances are taken in by the body that are not of value such as foods that the human body cannot process and chemicals in the air. These along with stress can make the body not work as it should.
However, drinking hot water just before you hit the pillow to go sleep and the first thing in the morning can naturally detoxify your body from the daily accumulative toxin buildups and is very necessary.
Every cell in the body requires and needs that natural hot water cleansing.
In addition, to have a fresh delicious glass of your favorite fruits and vegetables juice in the morning along with a teaspoon full of a liquid vitamins & minerals. It is a great way to fuel the body the right way for the right reasons.
Juicing is a way to let the body rest and recover while it is being nourished.
Food gives us energy however it also gives us a lot work to do.
Keep in mind that thousands of chemical processes are required for the body to convert a tiny piece of apple into energy.
Juicing to cleanse and juicing to lose weight are two separate endeavors.
When the body is filled with chemicals and toxins, the toxins will attach to the fat cells. This causes water retention. The body can't lose weight until it detoxifies.
