I just read a very easy reasoning behind this. Our bodies are like cars. We take our cars in and get the oil changed and the system flushed. We don't even think about doing that with our bodies. We take so many toxins into our body, that most of us could consider ourselves toxic. Now, some of these can be helped, and some not. Pesticides, air pollution, cleaning agents, and processed foods are ones that most people run into everyday. I started getting a headache here and there, and I started noticing my face break out a little. These were my first indications that maybe my body is off. Maybe not so abnormal, because I am on hormone blockers and my body is still trying to do what it is suppose to do, but still, this is not what I am use to. Then I started reading that even allergies can be helped through a cleanse, which mine are awful lately. I like to blame our two cats at home, but that doesn't sit well with the cat caretaker in the household, my daughter, Grayson. I decided on a short 5 day cleanse, and then keep my normal schedule of juicing after. My biggest hope out of this cleanse is that I reset my system, so all my organs are working optimally and I will also feel more energy as an outcome of this.
I have read many things about cleansing. I guess, I will feel better than worse for the next couple of days. Headaches, sinuses, allergies, flu-like symptoms, and irritability (I think this will probably be from the lack of snacking I like to do so much) all seem to be the consensus of what we will be feeling the next couple days. Then we should feel great after that, obviously the longer the cleanse, the better you will feel, but the length of this one is good for now.
One of my favorite juices that I will definitely make sure to be making everyday is my beet, carrot, and celery juice. I love it. The celery makes it naturally salty.
Beet, Celery, and Carrot
This recipe makes enough for an 8 oz. juice
1 beet (including greens)
4-5 stalks of celery
Juice everything except the lemon. Squeeze lemon before drinking.
I drink this juice at least 4 days out of the week. While on this cleanse I am making sure I am drinking it everyday.
This combination of juice will will really help set your body straight for many reasons. This juice is very rich in organic alkalizing elements, including sodium, potassium, and phosphorus. It will quickly re-balance your Ph and improves the liver and kidneys ability to help cleanse the blood's impurities. Which means...no more headaches!
Here are some other reasons to drink this....
*It improves blood quality and helps relieve fatigue.
*The beet is a well known blood pressure reducer.
* This juice is very high in Iron, so it helps fight again anemia and low hemoglobin.
