Seasonal Juice Fasting: Preventive Maintenance for Your Body
When it comes to your car, you’ll get oil changes, tire rotations, tune-ups, and even the occasional detailing. But when was the last time you did the same for your body?
Your body is a complicated machine, and just like an oil change can keep a car engine from stalling, your body needs preventive maintenance, too. It's tempting to settle into blissful ignorance and take your health for granted, but if you're overlooking symptoms like poor energy, digestive problems, and lack of sleep, you could be setting yourself up for a breakdown.
Our bodies are assaulted every day by toxins, pollutants, pesticides, antibiotic residues, and chemicals in our food and environment. Add to this, our enduring romance with refined carbohydrates, saturated fats, processed foods, and excessive caffeine and alcohol, and you are left with low energy and a general sense of feeling less than awesome.
Seasonal juice fasting is a habit you can adopt to aid your body's natural detoxification process. You'll regain energy, sleep better, feel lighter, and think clearer — and stay on track with your wellness regimen. With a new season on the horizon, here’s why you should be thinking about a seasonal juice cleanse.
You’ll improve your overall health
Your body naturally detoxifies itself every day through your gut, kidneys, skin, liver, and lungs. When done in a healthy and safe way, a juice fast supports your body's natural detox process and facilitates the removal of toxins from your body, and also improves immunity, boosts energy, gives you youthful glowng skin, and helps you lose weight.
A juice detox can kick start your body into cleansing mode and help get your health back on track. Even a short three-day juice fast can produce a dramatic transformation in how you look and feel.
You’ll curb unhealthy food cravings
A fruit and vegetable-based juice cleanse can break the vicious cycle of unhealthy food cravings that undermine your health. By eliminating that pesky habit of comfort eating, a juice fast can reconnect you to your body’s true signals of hunger and provide a psychological boost to help you alter unhealthy habits.
You’ll help restore your body’s balance
Juices require significantly less effort to be processed/absorbed by your digestive system than solid food, allowing your digestive system and organs of detoxification to rest and reset.
Your gut contains both "good" and "bad" bacteria, and a juice detox helps restore the balance in your gut micro-environment. Your liver is your biggest detoxifying organ, and a seasonal detox allows it to repair and rest.
You’ll feel more hydrated and rejuvenated
When you stop drinking sodas, tea, and coffee in favor of juice, your body is rehydrated. At a microscopic level, your cells repair and heal from damage and inflammation. Food allergies may be unveiled, as you'll be eliminating everything except organic fruits and vegetables from your diet. Your body will also be flooded with nutritious, invigorating, plant-powered fuel. Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants will restore your body to its optimal balance.
Simply put, your body will thank you for undergoing a seasonal juice cleanse. Your rehydrated skin will glow. You'll lose weight and feel lighter and more energetic. Sugar cravings will be a thing of the past. Your flatter stomach will motivate you to continue eating healthy. Your mind will feel refreshed, and your sense of wellbeing will be at an all-time high — and who can complain about that?
