#YourHealthWealth, my shared series on what I do, what I'm inspired to do, and how I manage my health and wellbeing.
Let's talk about juicing. This is something I am immensely passionate about.
1. I've spent the last 5 years actively juicing, juice fasting, and healing my body with nutrient-rich liquid.
2. I've seen my own mother heal her body of cancer with the addition of serious juicing!
As hypocrites has famously said "let thy food be thy medicine...."
Now let's just quickly push out of the way the idea that juices are high in sugar... we know, via extensive research (resources below) that juicing is a fast track way to eliminate the need for the body to digest what you're eating and to absorb an abundance of nutrients which with some meals can take HOURS (some meats take DAYS), when we juice it takes roughly 15 minutes for those nutrients to be in the blood... IN THE BLOOD!! I also make sure that the majority of my juices are vegetable based versus fruit based. This is medicinal, this is how your body takes what it needs to fight illness, disease, and to properly be nourished.
Moving on, there's a fantastic doctor I credit my mom's wellbeing to, Dr. Gerson who created the Gerson institute which uses juicing to cure serious illness, even terminally ill patients were given their life back. When we juice we concentrate the food and it goes right into the tissues and the cell and raises the level of nutrients in our body.
You can completely restore every single cell in your body within 1 year from the brain to your DNA (2 months), the liver (6 weeks), stomach (5 days), etc! This is the fountain of youth and it rests within reach every single moment. The leafier the better and keep in mind juicing is meant to be simple and should be complimented with healthy lifestyle choices- moving, fresh air & nature, mindfulness practices, and honouring a plant-based diet. I would also suggest easing into it!
