The Juice Fasting Site for Health Weight Loss and Detox

There are several kinds of fasts, from those for religious reasons that fast until sundown to those who take nothing but water for long periods. If the fasting is for health purposes, it makes sense to support your body’s needs while you reduce or remove some necessary elements from your diet.

The basic elements that we need to remove from our diet for the sake of our health are cooked food and animal products. This includes the denatured packaged products such as white flour, refined sugar etc. and all animal products such as red meat, poultry, fish and eggs. The only animal product that is usually allowed is a little honey for sweetening purposes. The best single method to accomplish these ends is to juice fast.

In order to do this properly, you will need a juicer which is a machine specifically made for this purpose, It is nor a mixer or a blender. It is not a citrus juicer. it is a device that is made to deliver vegetable juice out of a spout while the fiber is deposited another way.

Some people may enter a juice fast as a way to address some disease condition. Others may use a fast in order to detoxify their body or to lose weight. For whatever reason you may chose to juice fast, one dramatic element is the immediate and dramatic loss of stored body fat. This has multiple health benefits.

Much of the toxins stored in our body are in our body fat. Metabolizing the fat forces the toxins into the blood stream where the body processes them to be eliminated. This elimination is not entirely done through the alimentary canal and the urinary tract. A major organ of elimination is the lungs. We will breathe out some toxins in our breath.

Another major organ of elimination is the skin. We will not only exude toxins from the surface of our skin, causing people to bathe frequently every day, but the skin may erupt in boils as the toxins, especially petro-chemicals accumulate in boils.

As we realize the great load of poisons we have carried by the amount of toxins that are being discharged, we can wonder how we survived at all. One lady of my acquaintance was so severely involved by the heavy discharge of chemotherapy chemicals from her skin that she constantly showered. Also, her breath was foul and her mouth had a chronic horrible taste.

This was all accomplished by juice fasting.

On the other hand, I also know a man who was only slightly affected by the discharge of toxins from his body, as he lost a pound a day for 28 days.

It all depends upon what is the challenge to your body to detoxify and how your body, in its own wisdom, ‘decides’ to lose the stored poisons.

The ‘rule of thumb’ is to stay on the juice fast until you have been free of detoxification symptoms for two days. These symptoms can be rather severe, making one to believe that ‘the cure is worse than the disease.’ However, this is certainly not true in the long run.

It is possible, during an extended fast, that a person may have more than healing crisis. You know that you are succeeding when you have a healing crisis. In cases of severe illness, some practitioners provide a juice fasting program for, perhaps, three days a week and the rest of the time the patient eats normally of selected fresh fruits and vegetables.

Meats are not a part of a recovering patient’s diet, especially during the critical detoxification period. After that, some practitioners allow the patient to have small amounts of animal protein sources such as two ounces of white fish or an egg a week. Other practitioners do not allow their patients to eat any animal products during their recovery or sustaining periods.

The prohibited foods include all animal flesh of any kind, including fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products. The only exception for some is the inclusion of a tablespoon of honey once a day for sweetening.

A strict juice fast is sometimes necessary until a good recovery is established. This may take from several days to three weeks or more. Almost always, there is immediate evidence of the success of the fast. The patient will know the next day, the family will know in two or three days and the doctor may see measurable results within a week or so.
