Expect loads of energy on your next juice fast!
So this is day 2 of my week long juice fast and I feel GREAT! I literally felt like I had limitless energy today. Starting out this morning, it was as though I had consumed 10 coffees, without the feeling of being wired. I was the "energizer bunny" ... period! I began my day with a tall glass of freshly pressed orange juice and that was it ... the energy kicked in immediately. I went to the gym and put in a serious workout ... still loaded with energy! I followed my workout with 1 tall glass of OJ again and felt amazing! This juice fast is incredible as I have no side effects (detox symptoms) whatsoever! The rest of my day went as follows ...
Skip the drugs ... opt for fresh juice instead.
Too often today people reach for drugs and other medications to deal with the symptoms of various illnesses or diseases. Taking pills at far too young an age to the point of complete habituation has become the norm and the body is no longer in tune with its ability to heal itself. The fact of the matter is that "your body is designed to heal itself". Or, in the words of Dr. Lorraine Day, M.D.:
"If you cut your hand – it will heal automatically, unless you deliberately put dirt in it, or you keep picking it open, or if your immune system is severely suppressed by the way you have been eating and living resulting in some very serious illness that causes delayed healing. If you smash your thumb with a hammer, it will eventually heal, unless you keep smashing the same thumb with a hammer - EVERY DAY! The point is that your body WILL heal itself UNLESS you keep injuring it. But most people don’t realize that they are “injuring” their body every day by the way they are living and eating. When we eat wrong and live wrong, these small daily “injuries” will result in a disease of one type or another. Unfortunately, doctors ONLY learn how to treat the symptoms of disease rather than addressing the root cause of the disease itself. Why? Because they are never taught the causes of diseases.
Doctors give DRUGS – ALL of which have side effects – and ALL of which harm the body! And DRUGS only cover up the symptoms."
Staying away from drugs and facing the music is how I approach illness. If I'm feeling under the weather or have a headache I do not opt for Tylenol or other off the shelf pain relievers. I feel the pain and drink plenty of fluids and rest. If you simply leave the body alone, it will heal itself. Period. I also drink herbal teas and drink freshly pressed juices. Freshly pressed juices flood the system with vital micronutrients and do not compromise the body's need for rest because they are pre-digested food.
Here's my juice recipe for stomach discomfort caused by stomach flu or a stomach virus:
