Juice Fasting is a great way to detox/cleanse the inner body/organs and lose some weight!  Results are different for everybody.  Many doctors prescribe Juice Fasting for their patients.  I personally love Juice Fasting because no chemicals are involved.  Fresh Fruits & Vegetables provide so many vitamins & nutrients that are quickly absorbed into your body.

If you don't have a good quality juicer nor can afford one, you can use a blender to make smoothies (juices & fiber enriched pulp).  You can make juice by the glass or you can do what I do and make enough for the entire day and switch out recipes each day or you can make more than one recipe and keep them in your fridge for some variety.  Typically, juices will be good for 3 or 4 days as long as they stay cold in your fridge.  Make sure you shake the juices well because the pulp & juice will start to separate.  If the juices are too concentrated/strong for your taste, you can dilute them by adding some water.

There are different time lengths for fasts.  Some do a weekend fast, some do 7 days, 14 days, 21 days or more!  Some people even do a month!  I know of some people who did an initial 45 day Juice Fast to really clean out the inner body then kept themselves on a regular schedule of shorter fasts a couple times a year!  Many doctors say that doing a Juice Fast atleast a couple of times a year is beneficial for keeping the inner body on track!

On a Juice Fast, you can drink as much juice as you like!  Make sure you are drinking plenty of water too 

These are some great websites that have TONS of information on the subject including tips, questions, testimonials, resources & great tasting recipes!  These are just 3 website but there are plenty more if you do a web search for JUICE FAST RECIPES!  You can also create your own recipes using any fruits and vegetables according to what you like!

Garlic reduces blood pressure, helps with the problem of blood clotting, lowering the LDL which increases bad cholesterol. Garlic boosts the immune system and encourages the recovery of heart attack victims. Garlic contains allicin which inhibits bacterial growth and fungus, helping with yeast over-growths, and useful in treating candida. Garlic increases the flow of digestive enzymes and encourages detoxification through the skin. The addition of parsley helps in combating the unpleasant odor of garlic. This juice is worth losing a few friends over.

Watermelon rind has chlorophyll, vitamin A, protein, potassium, zinc, iodine, nucleic acids and enzymes which aid digestion. Ninety-five percent of the nutritional content in watermelon is in the rind. Because watermelon is a great diuretic, your kidneys and bladder will experience a honeymoon of youthful health.
If you are short on money, watermelon juice is the ticket. You can add just about anything to watermelon juice, so again, we encourage you to have some fun.

  1. It is hard to find pure fruit juice in the market. You can get only some percent of adulterated health drinks. I trust only on Dynamic Health brand. The best fruit juice for me is Goji Berry Juice as it can cure skin diseases, respiratory problems and strengthens the immune system.
