8 Day Juice Fast

I have found the following 8-day cleanse/juice fast to be very comfortable and refreshing.

Each morning start with warm lemon water, and also before you go to bed. (I put a little honey in it to boost my immune system). Lemon water is proven to help with elimination, and also boost the production of “bile.” Bile is a digestive aid that the body naturally produces.

The Process

First 3 days –

Warm lemon water upon awakening and before you turn in; then only water for the rest of the day. This is called a water fast. This may sound intimidating if you have never fasted, but for the first couple days of a fast, your body actually has food in the digestive track. Yes! Food can sit in there for up to three days, especially meat. So for the first three days, if you feel hungry, remember your body is using up remaining food in your digestive track from meals previous.

Next 5 days –

We will be adding juice to the fast. It is during this next period that your body will eliminate food reserves from your liver. When we say "juice", we are generally referring to freshly prepared vegetable juice because fruit juice alone, tends to be too sweet for comfortable fasting (in my opinion). You can test this theory for yourself, and maybe do a mixture since a little fruit in the vegetable juice adds a YUM factor. As long as you feel good that’s what this is all about. Below I have listed what juices I prefer and why. Juice should be made in a juicer and drank immediately. I realize this may be inconvenient for some folks because they work during the day, and are unlikely to haul a juicer to work. In this case you can use V8 vegetable juice, the low sodium kind, and then do fresh juices when you aren’t stuck at work. Drink as much juice as you want during this period. It is generally a good idea to dilute your juice with half water; or if you prefer, drink a glass of water before you drink your glass of juice. A good rule of thumb is to drink three or four eight-ounce glasses of fresh juice a day.

Note:

No juice bought at the store has the same nutrients of fresh juice. Do not make the mistake of thinking the “green machine” or other juices at your local market are fresh. They are pasteurized, which means treated with heat, and changes the health benefits. Fresh juice contains a great amount of raw food enzymes and vitamins, many of which are easily lost as the juice sits. So don't let it sit!

How To:

You can juice almost anything you might otherwise eat raw. The Vegetables I prefer are cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, romaine lettuce, cabbage, beets, tomatoes, celery and cabbage. If you want to mix in some fruits some good ones are apples, canteloupe, pineapple, grapes, and honey dew melon. Adding fruit can make your juice mixtures quite delicious.

My Suggested Vegetables and Fruits:

Cucumber - remarkably refreshing. Cucumbers taste sweeter than you would imagine. Be sure to peel your cucumbers before juicing to avoid any waxes that may have been applied to improve shelf life at your local supermarket.

Carrots - are tasty and popular. Two glasses of carrot juice per day can be highly beneficial. There is no need to peel your carrots if you scrub them vigorously with a tough metal brush first. Carrots are high in vitamin A. The vitamin A in carrots is actually a different "pro-vitamin A" or more commonly referred to as carotene. One word of caution, if you drink a bunch of carrot juice it may make you that your skin appear orange. The color change in skin is not harmful, so don’t worry; if you don’t want to turn orange just use less carrots.

Celery - can be very tasty, but is a little high on sodium. Use moderate amounts of celery with this in mind. Also, you can juice celery leaves for added benefits.

Romaine Lettuce or Bean Sprouts – can make an especially nutritious rich juice with a taste that is well worth acquiring since it will be loaded with minerals and chlorophyll. Zucchini - Actually tastes better than you would imagine. Be sure to peel this vegetable first. The high fiber in zucchini also keeps the juicer from clogging.

Cabbage - Back in the 1950's cabbage juice was used by, Garnett Cheney, M.D. to cure bleeding peptic ulcers (Cheney, G. (1952) "Vitamin U therapy of peptic ulcer." Dr. Cheney had patients drink a quart of cabbage juice each day, and they were cured in half the time, (without the use of drugs). Since then, cabbage juice has been used to manage a variety of gastrointestinal illnesses. Colitis, spastic colon, indigestion, chronic constipation, certain forms of rectal bleeding and other conditions seem to respond to the nutrients in cabbage juice. More recently, the American Cancer Society has urged people to eat more of the cabbage/broccoli family of vegetables because of their protective effects against cancer.

Tomatoes - Do not juice the leaves, vines, and only use red, ripened tomatoes. Tomatoes have been tied to help prevent cancers such as; breast and prostate cancer.

Beets - Traditionally, a blood-builder, beets are quite sweet and make great juice. Beets also should be peeled prior to juicing. It will save you time if you dip your beets in boiling water before peeling them. They will also permanently stain your juicer, so don't stress if you can’t get the color off of your juicer. More important, beet juice will color your bowel movements, so don’t be alarmed if you see red toilette water after juicing with beets.

Conclusion:

You will probably find that you will have to go to the bathroom more while juicing, since you are taking in more liquids. You may notice that you have more bowel movements too. This is normal. Your body should respond to all this positive nourishment by "cleaning house.” More excretory symptoms will often be the result of a juice fast. Just remind yourself that all this was just sitting in your system before! Good luck.
