A Juice Cleanse/Detox Can Get Your Health Back on Track

By choosing to change your eating for just a few days (with a juice cleanse) you will experience a remarkable positive transformation.

The romance of unhealthful foods is powerful, as evidenced by the fact that 65% of Americans struggle with being overweight to the point of being obese. To gain control of your weight and health it is essential to break the cycle od dependence on saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, processed foods, caffeine and alcohol. Research going back decades shows changing to a primarily plant based diet can actually reverse severe chronic diseases and help a person return to a healthier state.

Benefits of a juice cleanse/detox:

1) Rest the stomach: Particularly for older folks who often don’t produce enough stomach acid, allowing the stomach to work less to extract nutrients is a significant benefit. Juices require less of the stomach digestive processing (churning, acid and pepsin). 

2) Rest and repair the gut: Giving the stomach a rest from processed foods, refined carbs, saturated fats, antibiotics and antacids allows one’s stress impaired intestines to recover, heal and work efficiently. 

3) Rest the liver: The liver is the main detoxifying organ. Every molecule of food obsorbed through the intestinal wall, moves into the liver for detoxification and preparation before being allowed to enter the rest of the body. (Fiber is not absorbed) Problem is, there are to many toxins for in the average American diet for the liver to process. Therefore, the toxins pass unchecked into the general circulation, wreaking havoc in distant cells. A juice cleanse/detox rests the liver from the overload.

4) Reduce your appetite: Juicing doesn’t shrink the stomach (though it feels like it). Juicing eliminates the habit of comfort eating and makes your feel satiated with less food than usual. This provides a big psychological boost to help get over the hurdle of moving from poor to good eating habits.

5) Eases food decision making: Juicing focuses on consuming fresh whole food produce and few hours. Reduces  the enslavement of thinking constantly about your next meal. You will be satiated at the cellular level while consuming less food. The more you eat fresh raw whole foods the less you’ll desire processed unhealthful foods.

6) Infuses the body with super nutrition: Being on an fresh produce, high vitamin and mineral content foods which contain all-important phytonutrients that are powerhouses for the clean-up and healing process. Fresh pressed juice is naturally raw; therefore infused  the vitamins, minerals and enzymes which allows the body to heal itself. 

7) Lose weight and gain energy: A juice cleanse is a great way to jump start your diet. I helps control the appetite and cravings, but is naturally lower in calories, which leads to more energy and weight loss.

8) Rehydrate the body:
