When we consume Raw vegetables and fruits and their juices, [micronutrients] are digested and assimilated within 10 to 15 minutes after ingesting (quicker when in juice form) and they are used almost entirely in the nourishment and regeneration of the cells and tissues, glands and organs of the body. In this case the result is obvious, as the entire process of digestion and assimilation is completed with a maximum degree of speed and efficiency, and with a minimum of effort on the part of the digestive system.” – Dr. Norman Walker
A juice cleanse is a way to gift your whole body a chance to “clean house”. Without the added burden of digestion, which takes a lot of time and energy, the body is now free to work on other things like detoxing the liver and kidneys.

Both antioxidant vitamins C and E prevent the damaging effect of free radicals on artery walls. They prevent blood from sticking, clotting, becoming toxic as well as helping to lower triglycerides levels. Great levels of vitamin C can be found in most fruits and vegetables. Good levels of vitamin E can be attained by adding blackberries, kiwi, asparagus and spinach in your juice recipes.
One of the primary functions of the liver is to serve as the body’s detoxifier. It is involved with detoxifying harmful substances (like environmental toxins, chemicals, food additives, preservatives, drugs, etc) before they can enter the bloodstream and harm the body. Periodic cleansing of the liver through juicing can be important in maintaining good health. Fresh juices reduce the burden on the liver and give it a chance to catch up. Juicing allows the liver to rid itself of accumulated toxins, thus permitting it to operate more efficiently.

Fresh juices provide a vast supply of fresh natural sugars, salts, enzymes, electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and probiotics, all in their appropriate proportions, for the rebuilding your body will be doing during a cleanse. Because juices require minimal digestion and are readily absorbed into the system, they do not interfere with the need for the digestive system to be almost completely shut down, which leaves the body’s energy available for the deep cleansing and rebuilding activities of a fast.
Juices also provide enough fluids to ensure the colon becomes thoroughly washed, while simultaneously allowing one to feel satisfied and not hungry. I do not recommend harsh or system-shocking methods to be used during a cleanse. All the methods we promote are natural and gentle.
Health care today can be an extremely costly undertaking, once you’re sick. Why allow yourself to get sick in the first place? The body is amazingly resilient, and with a little care it will serve you well for a long time. Honor your body and your life by spending a little time and money to keep it healthy to begin with, instead of waiting until it’s too late! Ideally, one should cleanse four times a year-with each change in the seasons.
