I'm really flying like a bird during this cleanse with really only tongue coating as a symptom and a day of tiredness in the beginning. Some cleanses have knocked me out and I felt less than optimal; while many have very mild symptoms.
I have several people I'm coaching on my juice cleanse suffering from severe detox symptoms and a few who are like me, just flying high. I love juicing!
The Scoop on Juicing
Juice cleansing is the process of drinking freshly made vegetable and/or fruit juices accompanied by herbal teas, broths, coconut water and fresh water. In drinking this nutrient-rich liquid (without the fiber) for a period of days you are, what I like to call, 'nutrificating' the body, removing toxic substances and regaining empowerment over food again. This detoxification offers incredible healing on many levels.
You might ask, "Why don't we just EAT all of the veggies instead of juicing them? Isn't the fiber good for you?"
Yes, fiber is GREAT for you. In fact most of us eating a Standard American Diet don't get enough fiber in the daily diet. Thing is, we also don't get enough NUTRIENTS in our daily 'eating' diet. Can you imagine EATING as much fresh veggies as you would be juicing?! That is several pounds of nutrient dense foods you'll be juicing and several pounds worth of nutrients going to your blood stream within 15 minutes without relying on the efficacy of your digestive system, which is often sub-par to begin with.
Aside from fiber, we also never give our digestion a rest or a cleanse. We rest our legs each evening when we put them up in the recliner. We clean our external body each day in the shower. We rest of muscles if we worked too hard. We rest and clean EVERYTHING else, but not our digestive system. With a 'Juicing Cleanse', you DRINK your nutrients and rest your digestive system for 1, 3, 7, or even 30+ days using freshly made vegetable and fruit juices, herbal teas, coconut water, vegetable broths and water.
I go into more detail on the difference between 'juicing' and 'fasting' within the context of the program. I also cover the science behind fasting and provide countless tips on assuring your success during this period of repairing, rebuilding and rejuvenating. I hope you join us for the Juice Cleanse Coaching Program or the 10day Raw Foods Cleanse (coming soon) if you are not quite ready to fast on liquids alone.
