Feeling a little sluggish lately?
A Spring cleanse is a great way to put a spring back in your step. Bauman College recommends you do a cleanse in two parts, eliminate non-nutritive substances and drink healthy fluids. Through this two part cleanse, you will be restoring your health with a regenerative diet.
ELIMINATE NON-NUTRITIVE SUBSTANCES
Examples of non-nutritive substances are refined sugars, alcohol, nicotine, and artificial sweeteners. When eliminating these substances from your diet, it is recommended to drink 8 cups of water within 16 hours. This helps to detox your system.
PROPERTIES OF RAW JUICE
Drinking fresh, raw juices is one Spring cleanse that will revitalize your system. Raw juices release the pure liquids locked in the cells of plants which have definite therapeutic value.
Carrot juice helps to promote appetite and is an aid in digestion. Carrots are one of the most effective means of changing the intestinal flora from a putrefactive to a non-putrefactive type. Because of its strong alkalinity, carrot juice helps to combat fatigue.
A prolific source of magnesium, sodium, and iron, celery juice quiets the nerves and is conducive to sound sleep. Celery juice contains as much sodium as calcium, which is valuable in arthritis conditions.
1.) It’s best to dilute fresh juices from 25-50% to lower the concentration of natural sugar in the juices, especially fruit or carrot juice.
2.) In the morning, make 16 ounces of fresh juice by juicing fresh carrots and celery, and an apple. Drink half in the morning and the other half later in the afternoon when you begin to get a bit tired.
Spring is an exciting and delicious time as the Earth awakens and provides cleansing plant foods.
