With the upcoming Vitality Fasting Retreat, take a moment to explore the world of juicing. Raw juices are pure liquids locked in the cells of plants that have definite therapeutic value. Just as herbs have specific curative values, so do the plants’ juices which have come from specific fresh fruits and vegetables. Grown in healthy soil, they contain all the substances needed for nourishing the human organism—provided the juices are used when fresh and raw, and without preservatives.
Raw juices are second to honey in ease and speed of assimilation into the blood stream. On an empty stomach, juices will be absorbed by the bloodstream and glands 15 minutes after ingestion. Because we consume a limited amount of pure raw food daily, a pint (16 oz.) or more of fresh raw fruit or vegetable juice daily will have a marked therapeutic effect.
This cleansing juice is delicious and a fast way to add nutrients to your diet, first thing in the morning.
