Juicing and the Feast

Get ready for a post that could change your life.  Today I have 5 juice recipes and info for a what many Alkavorians call a “juice feast” that is also considered a” juice cleanse”.  I’ll start with a few recipes for those of you who are anxious to get juicing and then get into the nitty gritty of the feast.   Are you feeling sluggish in your day to day health routine? If you are like most of us you droop at 10:30 or 3 in the afternoon and are looking for coffee. You’ll be glad you read this post as fresh juice gives you energy and vitality that you will notice right away since they are so easily assimilated by your body and bloodstream, you can feel the boost within 20 minutes.  How’s that for an energy boost, filled with all the natural vitamins & minerals your body craves while building your immune system.  If you are new to juicing or curious read here for Fifty Fascinating Facts about juicing.

Tasty fresh juice recipes need not be complicated.  I have found with experimenting that the simple flavours of fresh veggies can be highlighted or buried.  I rather enjoy tasting the individual veggies I put in and combining them in various ways.   I certainly encourage you to do your own experimenting as it’s fun and exciting to find interesting combinations that become favourites.  Always start with fresh ingredients.  Using sad leftover produce will not give you the flavour nor the nutrition you require.  If you don’t have a juicer yet, it’s time you got one!  My recommendation for quality and value is the Breville with centrifugal models priced from approx $150-$400 Canadian.  A masticating juicer is much, much pricier but yields more juice leaving greater levels of precious enzymes in tact allowing you to store the fresh juice longer than 30-60 minutes while maintaining it’s nutritional value.  I still recommend drinking your juice immediately for best results but using this type of extraction is how some bottled fresh juices have a small shelf life maintaining nutrition and flavour.  Organic Avenue in Long Island, New York ships juices for a complete cleanse if you don’t want or don’t have the time to make your own.  You can read more about the types of juicers here and here.  If you wish to make use of the pulp that is left over from juicing I recommend getting a dehydrator or researching recipes (the Breville hand book has recipes) for this pulp that can be made into a myriad of goodies.  Right now I am focusing on great soil for the garden and am composting for that purpose so I haven’t explored using the pulp for recipes–yet.  But I will get to it eventually.  I don’t feel like I am wasting especially if it makes it’s way to our garden, helping to grow delicious wholesome veggies to juice all over again!

The recipes below are a few of the ones that I enjoy using for this juice feast or just as a snack when I am craving some serious nourishment.  I juice every morning for our family, it’s a ritual.  We have our favourite recipe right here but we do stray now and again.  The simple recipe for the carrot juice makes me lose my mind, it’s so yummy with the lemon.  The beet juice sound may sound rather terrifying but you’d be some surprised how delicious it is with the ginger and the lemon!  Give them a whirl and see what you like and then get creative–and then report back:)

Carrot & Lemon Juice
4-5 peeled carrots, ends trimmed (peel only if they need peeling)
1 lemon peeled (you must peel all citrus fruit prior to juicing)
Place in juicer and drink immediately.  Yields approx 8 oz

Fresh juice enzymes are alive and must be ingested at their maximum freshness to gain the benefits.  The juice also loses it’s delicious taste if stored.  I find that 30 mins is the most time I can let a juice rest before the taste really changes, becoming less effective.
This juice is just divine I have to say.  If you’ve ever tasted canned carrot juice you’ll be very pleased to find that this doesn’t even resemble that nasty stuff.  You’ll be suddenly craving carrot juice after tasting this!

Green Juices
Cucumber Fennel
1 cucumber
a piece of fennel
1 lemon peeled
1 stalk celery
few stems of bok choy.
Place in juicer and drink immediately.  Yields approx 8 oz

Green Ginger Ale
1 cucumber
few stems each of mint & parsley
2 leaves of kale, 1/2 in piece of ginger
1 lemon peeled
Place in juicer and drink immediately.  Yields approx 8 oz

Creamy Greens
1 cucumber
a few broccoli stems
1 stalk celery
few stems of bok choy
a 3-4 inch piece of parsnip
a small wedge of cabbage
few stems parsley & basil too if you have
Place in juicer then pour this green juice into the blender and add 1 avocado, 1 small clove garlic, pinch of sea salt and 1-2 teaspoons of Braggs soy sauce.  This is my favourite and I save it for lunch or for dinner during this cleanse.  I sometimes even pour it into a bowl as a soup- delicious!

Beet, Lemon & Ginger Juice
4 medium beets peeled (I recommend peeling or you may have a dirt taste from the strong tasting minerals in the skin)
1 lemon peeled
1   1/2 inch piece of ginger
Place all in juicer and drink immediately.
Who knew beets could taste so delicious.  The lemon and the ginger make this like the best tasting cocktail.  I have found myself making this completely out of the blue, just cuz- it’s very tasty.

My first 3 Day Juice Feast Cleanse was the beginning of the end, little did I know.  Twenty months ago my lifestyle took an about face turn for the better and am I grateful for the massive turn.  Ending an era of an acidic diet and beginning an alkalizing lifestyle with a juice cleanse was one of the most significant changes that I have ever embarked on and has led me on a journey I never ever knew I would take.  My health has improved 10 fold and I am a new person who can tend to my family and my business without excruciating pain.  I managed to flush out the inflammation that was causing the pain vs taking multiple medications that were making my body more and more acidic.  I couldn’t be happier about where I am at this moment, it feels soooo good and soooo right!  And to think it all started with an innocent juice feast.  So let me share what it’s all about.

Just a note first for those of you who are not quite up to a feast or cleanse just yet.  Try out some of the juice recipes here and you’ll see how yummy and energizing they are and perhaps incorporate them into a daily drink to alkalize a bit more.  The one I make every morning is right here- my all time fave!-and my kids too!

First you might ask why…. why would anyone want to do a juice feast for heavens sake?  The answer is “to jump start your health journey” especially if you are not well,  or you have low energy.  Drinking juiced vegetables will give your body incredible, easily absorbed nutrition that it has most likely been craving for many years .  This feast is different from a typical cleanse where you may feel hungry as some cleanses generally strip toxins from your body but do not necessarily feed your body at the same time.  You won’t have the hunger pangs with a juice feast and instead you will have this wonderful overall feeling of comfort knowing that you are feeding your body the best thing on this planet that your body is desperate for.  It’s very empowering to say the least.  Flushing your body with fresh veggie juices assists in removing built up toxins especially those in your colon that are so damaging when they accumulate.  A nice side effect is that you will probably weigh in up to 5lbs lighter-bonus hey!- after 3 days of juicing and cleansing your colon as most of us have that much in storage.

Initially I was a little afraid of the length of the cleanse yet I was completely surprised how easy it was and how quickly it went especially since I didn’t feel hungry and jittery as I might with low blood sugar.  I have since done it 3 more times.  Keep in mind that after 30-40 some odd years of an acidic lifestyle the toxins are not completely gone after one cleanse.  It takes time for your body to release these toxins and at the same time we are constantly still exposed to toxins just by breathing the polluted air, or by following a car with poor exhaust, or just drinking coffee & wine, it goes on and on.  Any medications we have ever taken in our lives have left residues locked in our cells and tucked away in pockets of our bodies.  A regular cleanse will support a desire to maintain a healthier, much lower level of toxins and move them out on a constant basis in order to avoid disease.  It’s a proactive way of staying healthy.  Honestly, I really think that this kind of basic health information should be part of the schools’ curricula.  Our body is our temple and without our health we have nothing! Nothing!

This cleanse can be done for up to 3 days or even longer, but I recommend consulting with your doctor or nutritionist if you plan to do it any longer than 3 days.  If you have any serious health issues I recommend consulting with your doctor prior to commencing this cleanse.  I truly believe that this feast is anyone’s ticket to health but every body is unique and if it is weakened a cleansing feast like this may be too much for it to handle.  Certainly it can be done gradually vs full on but it’s your body and you know what’s best.  In any case, adding juicing to your daily routine is the key to energizing your body for life.  Please note that anyone on blood thinners must be careful of vitamin K that is abundant in green vegetables and can further thin the blood as that is it’s job– too keep our blood flowing.  With the addition of the medication this can be dangerous so be sure to consult your doctor if you take these kinds of medications.

Are you ready for the feast?  Lets get started.

For 1.5 yrs I have used these products that have been formulated to assist my body in releasing built up toxins as well as assisting me maintaining an alkaline balance.  I recommend them only because I have found incredible results.  I have shared with a few friends and they too have found excellent results and have incorporated them into their daily regime.  Right here you will find everything except the Phor Salts which is here.

For ease of reference during your cleanse I have created a printable 3 page PDF of the cleanse for you right here Juice Feast Instructions.  I added a few recipes below this cleanse that are NOT on the PDF that you may like to try.

Super Greens- Highly alkalizing with 300+ megahertz of energy per scoop. I drink 3-4 liters of this everyday, not just for cleansing. I super hydrate & alkalize daily and gain energy from this amazing product. I don’t leave home without it–ever!
Prime PH- pH drops to alkalize your water if you do not have an alkaline water filter- These are great as they improve your water immensely and can also be used for traveling so you don’t have to lug your filter:)
Phor Salts- This will alkalize you and provide 4 key minerals, sodium, Magnesium, Potassium & calcium.  I take this 2x per day and will forever.  It’s a keystone product.  Excellent to take extra if you feel like you are getting a bit of a cold (excess toxins are escaping- or you had to much wine at dinner)
Colloidal Supplements – these by pass your digestive track and enter your body with ease by placing these liquid drops under your tongue for maximum absorption to your blood stream for immediate use by your body.  You can select a cleansing pack here if you desire to maximize your cleanse.  I take them twice everyday to supplement my diet but they are incredibly helpful when cleansing especially the myco detox drops.
Supplement Capsules – these are helpful as they are formulated as a soft capsule easily released for absorption and designed to be targeted to specific parts of your body with accuracy.  Again there is a beginning combination here for you to try out.  I take these everyday as well.  Dr. Robert O. Young has spent 40 years studying and developing methods for supplementation that get results.  If you feel the difference like I do you’ll keep taking them, but only you will know so stay tuned in to your body.

Groceries- buy as much organic as you can and a wide variety of veggies–these are some that I like but you will decide what green juices you want to make and what you like- just buy your favourites to experiment with.

10 cucumbers- lots of these. (I buy either field or long english- which ever is largest and best price) These are very alkalizing, a great neutral base for any juice and yield lots of juice for their very high water content
3 dozen carrots
2 parsnips
3 bunches celery
1 head of cabbage
1 head of fennel
3 bunches bok choy
1 bunch broccoli
1 bunch kale
12 beets
12 lemons or more
3 avocados
1 bulb garlic
lg pc of ginger
2 bunches parsley
2 bunches mint
2-3 tetra paks Organic Vegetable Broth (for healing soup after the feast)
Other veggies for soup- red pepper, zucchini, leeks, yellow squash etc.
This should get you started.  If you need more veggies take an outing to the market and find some more interesting things you may have missed the first time.

Starting the Feast

7 am-ish or upon rising • Start your day with a glass of water, either Alkaline or filtered with a squeeze of lemon

Take your colloidal supplements

there after1 glass of mineral salts- phor salts- dissolved in 6 oz alkaline water or with 4 drops of Prime pH in 8oz.  This will alkalize you and provide 4 key minerals, sodium, Magnesium, Potassium & calcium.  I take this 2x per day and will forever.  It’s a keystone product.  Excellent to take extra if you feel like you are getting a bit of a cold (excess toxins are escaping- or you had to much wine at dinner)

JUICE-15 mins later • make 8 oz of carrot juice with one lemon peeled (approx 6-8 carrots- varies depending on size) This drink will stave off the first early morning hunger and increase your blood sugar level after your night of fasting during sleep.  It’s a nice jump start for me if I am a tad growlie.  Carrots are filled with minerals and of course assist in detoxifying your body.

Take your capsule supplements

30 mins later • slowly drink 1 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

JUICE-10 am-ish or 1.5 -2 hrs later • make 12 oz green veggie juice
-combinations like 1 cucumber, a piece of fennel, 1 lemon peeled, 1 stalk celery, few stems of bok choy.
-or try  1 cucumber, few stems each of mint & parsley, 2 leaves of kale, 1/2 in piece of ginger, 1 lemon peeled

30 mins later • slowly drink 1 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

Take your colloidal supplements

JUICE-12 noon-ish or 1.5 -2 hrs later • make 12 oz green veggie juice with an avocado added for creaminess if you wish
-try this- juice 1 cucumber, a few broccoli stems, 1 stalk celery, few stems of bok choy, a 3-4 inch piece of parsnip, a piece of cabbage, few stems parsley.   Pour this green juice into the blender and add 1 avocado, 1 small clove garlic, pinch of sea salt and 1-2 teaspoons of Braggs soy sauce.  This is my favourite and I save it for lunch or for dinner during this cleanse.  I sometimes even pour it into a bowl as a soup- delicious!

30 mins later • slowly drink 1/2 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

JUICE-2 pm-ish or 1.5 -2 hrs later • make 12 oz green veggie juice

Take your colloidal supplements

30 mins later • slowly drink 1/2 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

JUICE-4 pm-ish or 1.5 -2 hrs later • make 12 oz green veggie juice

30 mins later • slowly drink 1/2 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

JUICE-6 pm-ish or 1.5 -2 hrs later • make 12 oz green veggie juice

Take your capsule supplements

30 mins later • slowly drink 1 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

JUICE-8pm-ish •  juice 8 oz of beet juice with one lemon peeled and 1/2 in pc of ginger (approx 3-4 med beets peeled- varies depending on size)  This is yum-yum-yummy!  This hit of beet sugar will give your body what it needs to boost your system as it contains phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium along with vitamins A & C,  niacin and biotin to nourish and cleanse your body thru the night.

Take your colloidal supplements

If desired you may enjoy a cup of herbal tea at any time during the feast–good suggestions are chamomile, mint, raspberry and pau d’arco teas.

Before bed1 glass of mineral salts- phor salts- dissolved in 6 oz alkaline water or with 4 drops of Prime pH in each 8oz.

Sleep well:)

Wake up and repeat:)

If you can manage 3 days of this cleanse this is what you may experience.
•First day you will not feel too different, you may just urinate often.
•Second Day you may still not feel any different. You will urinate often and empty your colon a couple times.
•Third Day you may feel a bit off, with cold or flu like symptoms (I felt fine but my sister felt this way) and you will urinate often as well as have a number of colon cleansing moments that I describe as a shower for your colon.  This is the idea of the cleanse.  You are washing your colon as you empty the toxins from your body.  I did not feel crampy, I just felt lighter and cleaner by the end of the day.

After completing the cleanse for 3 days  you may decide to do another day or choose to be complete. On this day you must break the cleansing feast with gentle foods for your tummy and your system. A healing soup is recommended.  You may eat as much of this soup as you desire thru the day.

Breaking the Feast

7 am-ish or upon rising • Start your day with a glass of water, either Alkaline or filtered with a squeeze of lemon

Take your colloidal supplements

there after1 glass of mineral salts- phor salts- dissolved in 6 oz alkaline water or with 4 drops of Prime pH in each 8oz.

Make the healing soup and drink just the broth this morning. The recipe is as follows.

This vegetable soup is satisfying and can be used for any meal for the next few days. Lightly stir fry some cut up vegetables such as green beans, celery, zucchini, yellow squash, red peppers, leeks, onions, garlic, shredded cabbage, etc., in a little vegetable broth or water. Put in a pot of heated vegetable broth. Flavor with spices such as Herbs de Provence, Oregano, Basil, Parsley, etc. Add some Real Salt for flavor.  Just gently heat thru so as not to cook the veggies too much, they should have a little crunch still.  However each time you re-heat it will soften a wee bit more.  Not to worry.

30 mins later • slowly drink 1 liter of green drink – 1 scoop of super greens mixed in alkaline water or with 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter

During the day enjoy the soup as often as you feel hungry.  Warm it and serve. In between drink a total of 3-4 liters of the green drink.

In the days that follow be sure to eat as much alkaline food as possible.  Try your best to stay “green” for the next 3 weeks. Eat raw and lightly steamed green vegetables. Have green salads with a lemon-based dressing. Eat lots of sprouts for energy. Have liberal amounts of essential omega oils. Continue drinking 4 liters of water each day with 1 scoop of SuperGreens Powder and 12 drops of Prime pH in each liter.  What you do for the next 30 days will become a habit.
Shelley Young who is married to Dr. Robert O. Young (who’s alkaline theory I follow) created these alkalizing recipes below that you may also enjoy in the next few weeks or make them a part of your daily routine.  This juicing feast is adapted from the one that Dr. Young recommends and he is the creator of all the products recommended in this post.  For further reading pick up his book The pH Miracle as he is the worlds leading expert on alkaline living.  I am grateful for his years of dedication to research and his passion for sharing it.

You will develop a pattern of taking care of yourself that will stick if you are persistent right now.  If you really want optimum health this window of time is crucial.  It may not be easy but it will carve the way for the future of your health.  Pay attention to your body and really try to feel and notice the way your energy changes.  Do you feel more vibrant, more energetic?  Is your head a little clearer?  Are you sleeping better?  How do you feel mentally about this process and your now cleaner body?  It’s easy to carry on being busy and not notice the changes in our body especially if one is not in tune with it prior to this.  That was me alright.  I was not on top of the signs my body was giving me to take notice of things that it was hinting at.  Now I seem to notice the slightest change in my body. I love this feeling of having woken up to my body.  It’s comforting to know that nothing will get past me, thus a cancer will not show up and surprise me as I am fully aware, with my eyes wide open.  Are you excited about a new direction for your health?  Please don’t hesitate to drop me a line with any questions or comments you have as I love to help and inspire:)

Hello sisters :)

My boyfriend and I will start the juice feast this week and we want to know if the ingredient’s quantity you’ve posted above is just for one person and we should buy double quantities for both of us.

Thank you very much!

admin October 7, 2013 at 8:49 am

Daniela, it does take quite a volume of veggies so you will need more for two than this list. However a fridge can only hold so much and they may not stay fresh if you get it all at once to start to cover two people’s feast. I would go with this and begin and then restock after you see what you need. Then all the remaining can go into the healing soup.
all the best to you both.

Daniela October 7, 2013 at 12:28 pm

Thank you very much for your quick answer!

Thankfull kisses from Portugal :)

Shola January 16, 2014 at 1:24 pm

Hi
Can I do the feast without the supplements?

admin January 17, 2014 at 10:11 am

Hi Shola, yes of course however results will be different and alkalinity will be slower to balance. The idea is to nourish, support and cleanse. The supplements help with the diet to nourish and also support cellular and body function. But as you may, any positive change in your diet will yield results so don’t let this stop you. Do what you can and gradually adopt the lifestyle adding supplements as you can to replenish your body’s stores. At the very least you can use baking soda in place of the pHor salts as Dr. Robert O. Young has suggested in his first book before he revised it. One teaspoonful in an 8oz glass of water, morning and night. The pHor salts are amazing for so many things, particularly increasing your alkalinity.

Renee January 19, 2014 at 9:35 am

I had the Carrot & Lemon Juice this morning, and was surprise how good it taste. I plan to try them all.

james January 27, 2014 at 10:44 am

Hi Julie. I have suffered similar back problems to yours. Mine are two slipped discs in my lumber spine. I am inspired by your story to give the juice feast and 30 day challenge a go.
Can you tell me how long was it before your back started feeling the benefits of the juicing and the alkaline way of eating?

Courtney February 1, 2014 at 5:12 pm

Hi there,

I started your 3 day juice feast yesterday and I am absolutely loving it! I borrowed a friends’ juicer to do it but you have definitely inspired me to buy one of my own. I bought most of the products you suggested for the cleanse, however I’d like to know exactly which products you take everyday to supplement your diet even when you are not cleansing? I see that you take phor salts and green powder always, but what colloidal and capsule ones do you take? Thanks!!

Regards,
Courtney Rollo

Julie February 1, 2014 at 5:27 pm

Yay good for you! I take the mega vitamin capsules, mycodetox capsules, all the time for extra nutrients and daily toxins we can’t avoid. I sometimes double up with the liquid ones including B-complex. It is really individual depending on your needs and this is why I recommend a live blood analysis to look at your own blood and see what you are deficient in so you know exactly where you are at as you begin this journey, you can see your progress as you clean up your blood and you know exactly what your body needs. But always the phor salts and the greens powder for sure:)

Rosetta Johnston February 6, 2014 at 7:38 pm

I am a bit overwhelmed. I have been struggling with Asthma which has gotten worse since menopause. The doctors insist on medication which has caused severe acid-reflux. We all know from commercials that warns us medication makes asthma symptoms worse as a side effect. In my case that has proven true. I have refused to take anymore medication as I think that is what is causing my asthma to flare up so badly. I am on a cycle of antibiotic and steroids and my health has never been this bad. In frustration I went to a Narapath who has suggested that I eat a alkaline diet to help get my system back in balance. My PH is neutral which isn’t bad but not optimal. I am impressed with your site and looks like both my husband and I could both eat this diet. Any suggestion on what recipes would be important to start with or should I just jump in and start….The green drinks look good and thought that would be a good starting place along with Spanish bean salad…….Glad I found this site…I think it will make this journey easier…

Julie February 6, 2014 at 11:29 pm

Rosetta, so glad you found your way here. if you are diligent you will see chsnges in your health. I highly suggest eating as much alkaline as possible up to 80%-90% and perhaps do a juice feast with the supplements for a thorough journey until you feel well then move to 70-80%. Go gradually if you must but make it a lifestyle not a diet and make it fun and yummy. All the best to you.

Krissy February 23, 2014 at 6:58 pm

Hello Ladies, I would like to try the juice feast, but I am a little overwhelmed by the supplements. I have been to the site and noticed that there are several sizes to choose from for some of the items. Would you mind giving some guidance for ordering for one person to complete the feast regimen? I would like to try the products and see how they work before ordering additional. Thanks so much!!

Roza February 24, 2014 at 11:07 am

Hi ,
I realy want to do this cleanse , do you know or have any idea if
it’s ok to do it while breastfeeding.Also maybe a silly question , but
what is the green drink?
Thank you

Julie February 26, 2014 at 11:47 pm

If you deep cleanse while nursing you can dump the toxins right into babies milk. I suggest gently adding more greens and adding a green juice diluted with water and slowly increase you alkaline intake each day so that you and baby adjust slowly.
The green drink is a super greens powder that is added to your water thru the day. You can find it here. It is a great way to alkalize as well and you can use this gingerly in your water until you get used to it. Greens will be great for your milk and is a good way to get baby accustomed to the flavour of green foods via your milk!

Julie February 26, 2014 at 11:50 pm

Hi Krissy, the super greens I started with was the largest one as I was pretty serious but they do last a long time so start small if you wish. This goes for all the products. They will last at least a month or more and you can re-order if you like them. All the best. let me know how you do:)

Julie February 27, 2014 at 12:28 am

sorry so Taardy James:( It took about 8-12 weeks but then it was permanent! Sooo worth it even tho it’s slower than drugs! thinking of you, I know it’s hard. Let me know how you are.

Roza March 5, 2014 at 6:59 am

Hi Julie,
Thank you so much . I have started to incorporate the juicing
In my diet , baby seems to not mind at all . I absolutely
love kale with mint and parsley, carrots and lemon in the morning
are awesome for breakfast .Even got my husband into
juicing , beets are a favorite. I know for now at least I can’t go
on liquid diet to cleanse but incorporating the juicing is one
step forward for me . I will probably try to take the green drink
next week .
Thanks

enrique March 28, 2014 at 8:47 pm

Hi, this is my first day of the detox is almost 8pm.. i done great all day… feel weak.. but of course.. is a big change… !

Question: I don’t have the “green drink”.. but i had been using all day spirulina , hemp and a mix of herbs and plant protein?..

Is that ok thanks!

I am trying to cure my Telogen Effluvium with the help of god and your drink! my hair is falling as my follicles got shock from a hair chemical treatment back few months ago :-) I loss 50% -of my hair but I am positive this will help!.

Julie March 31, 2014 at 11:20 am

Enrique, If you can, avoid spirulina and use wheat grass or barley grass instead as spirulina is an algae/fungus that Dr. Young doesn’t suggest- same with Chlorella. Hemp protein or sprouted brown rice protein is good too. Use nuts and seeds and legumes for protein as well, later, when you are done the cleanse. If you feel weak have more green drink, you may have as much as you like. You can easily make a green drink by just tossing greens like spinach and cucumber and herbs like mint and add lemon juice in a blender or even a juicer if you have and have this or any combination of greens veggies juiced or blended. Don’t go hungry. You can do this! Dr. Young grew his hair back as he was balding. His site has this article http://articlesofhealth.blogspot.ca/search?q=growing+hair
All my best:)

Misty July 10, 2014 at 10:35 am

HI there!
I have a question. So I have heard that using a Vita-mix blender in some ways is better than a juicer, in that you receive the full benefits of the fiber, etc. that you would be discarding by using the juicer. You would inevitably be using less produce, I would assume? Do you think this is accurate? I only have a Vita-mix blender, and I was wondering if there were conversions for these juice recipes to use with the Vita-mix?
Thanks!! :) :)

Julie July 10, 2014 at 1:46 pm

Misty, juicing yields highly concentrated nutrients because it is minus the fiber intentionally, for immediate assimilation. It’s power packed and is amazing for healing. Sure you can blend and this can be beneficial too and I do recommend this as well but when cleansing you get faster results and quicker nutrient deposit without the fiber. I do both, I juice daily (it doesn’t fill me up but it nourishes immensely) then for more substance I blend a drink afterward, every other day approx, with other brekky’s in between like chia porridge.

If you don’t need to heal from an ailment by all means blend. Otherwise both are amazing and can work together quite nicely and you can then do seasonal juice cleanses with just juice to flush the colon without adding all that fiber in there- it cleans like a good shower would!! I use a fiber supplement while cleansing but it works differently that the veg fiber to loosen things.
Hope this helps:)

I have just been diagnosed with stage one breast cancer. I have always eaten well, but now I’m determined to feed my body for healing. I’m going to do your detox program. what brand do you suggest I buy for The Phour salts and colloidal supplements. I just want to be sure the ingredients are the best.

you can use either innerlight (there are more colloidals here) or phmiracle living

I suggest minimizing or skipping the carrot and beet juices in my cleanse as you have cells that will feed off the sugars. try consuming just green juices and if you need green smoothies but without fruit. you can use avocado. see my alkaline smoothie post. you can beat this!! read or listen to The pH miracle and watch Truly Heal documentary for inspiration and motivation. and look at your emotional and stress health. this plays 50% or more of the role in your success rate!!!!
all the best to you:) Keep me posted!
