There are several kinds of fasts,
from those for religious reasons that fast until sundown to those who
take nothing but water for long periods. If the juice fasting is for
health purposes, it makes sense to support your body's needs while you
reduce or remove some necessary elements from your diet.
The basic elements that we need to remove from our diet for the sake of our health are cooked food and animal products. This includes the denatured packaged products such as white flour, refined sugar etc. and all animal products such as red meat, poultry, fish and eggs. The only animal product that is usually allowed is a little honey for sweetening purposes. The best single method to accomplish these ends is to juice fast.
Some people may enter a juice fast
as a way to address some disease condition. Others may use a fast in
order to detoxify their body or to lose weight. For whatever reason you
may chose to juice fast, one dramatic element is the immediate and
dramatic loss of stored body fat. This has multiple health benefits.
Much of the toxins stored in our body are in our body fat. Metabolizing the fat forces the toxins into the blood stream where the body processes them to be eliminated. This elimination is not entirely done through the alimentary canal and the urinary tract. A major organ of elimination is the lungs. We will breathe out some toxins in our breath.
Another major organ of elimination
is the skin. We will not only exude toxins from the surface of our
skin, causing people to bathe frequently every day, but the skin may
erupt in boils as the toxins, especially petro-chemicals accumulate in
As we realize the great load of poisons we have carried by the amount of toxins that are being discharged, we can wonder how we survived at all. One lady of my acquaintance was so severely involved by the heavy discharge of chemotherapy chemicals from her skin that she constantly showered. Also, her breath was foul and her mouth had a chronic horrible taste.
This was all accomplished by juice fasting.
On the other hand, I also know a man who was only slightly affected by the discharge of toxins from his body, as he lost a pound a day for 28 days.
It all depends upon what is the challenge to your body to detoxify and how your body, in its own wisdom, 'decides' to lose the stored poisons.
The 'rule of thumb' is to stay on
the juice fast until you have been free of detoxification symptoms for
two days. These symptoms can be rather severe, making one to believe
that 'the cure is worse than the disease.' However, this is certainly
not true in the long run.
It is possible, during an extended
fast, that a person may have more than healing crisis. You know that
you are succeeding when you have a healing crisis. In cases of severe
illness, some practitioners provide a juice fasting program for,
perhaps, three days a week and the rest of the time the patient eats
normally of selected fresh fruits and vegetables.
