Juice Fasting

How much do you know about Juice fasting?

Basically, Juice fasting is often practiced during a fasting program and detox diet where fruit and vegetable juices are consumed. There are various reasons and via various methods for juice fasts and usually this sort of fasting is marketed together with supplies, supplements and support groups.

While I was going through the detox program, I was consuming up to 5 glasses of freshly squeezed carrot+apple juice per day, for 7 days.

I would like to share an excerpt from Dr N.W. Walker’s book FRESH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICES – WHAT’S MISSING IN YOUR BODY. This is a fabulous book of valuable information first written 70 years ago. It had opened my eyes to the benefits of fresh juices after I read it few years ago.

I have heard about Hair Analysis few years ago but have never bothered to read much about it. But with the rising chronic and degenerative illnesses that surround us these days, I can’t helped but take this article I read from Dr Janet Hull seriously.

If you have NEVER read about hair analysis or don’t know what it is, I urge you to take a few minutes to read the following article by Dr Janet Hull.

Why Detox?

I did my detox few years ago after some real life testimonies from a close couple friend.Being a health enthusiast, it wasn’t hard to make a decision to take up the detox challenge. After all, I’m opened to natural health matters and information pertaining to alternative medicine.I am an eczema sufferer for years and recently, I also found out that I had rhinitis (or post nasal drip), a form of allergy that often caused mucus to drip into the throat and thus resulted in throat irritation, sensitivity and coughs (esp in the night).

Anyhow, my 7 day detox was not a bed of roses. The program required me to stay away from regular cooked food except fresh foods (fruits and vegetables), freshly squeezed juices, with the exception of steamed potatoes, vegetables and homemade yogurt. There were also some health supplements that I was required to take during the 7 days, which I won’t go into much details. But it was a good decision made after that 7 days. Believe it or not, my eczema was gone! It sounded like a miracle or a sales pitch you heard on the TV or health product brochure but it’s was true.

After the detox, I felt better, more energized, no more fatigue or frequent sleepiness and I look more refreshed and rejuvenated. Since, I would do a detox on a yearly basis.

So ‘why do we need a detox’, you may ask.

Just like a house spring-cleaning much needed every year, the human body needs to be cleaned, too. Especially if you have a diet that includes hydrogenated fats and oils, refined white sugar and white flour, diet food products, or exposure to lots of chemicals from processed foods.
