Are you tired of feeling physically uncomfortable, mentally foggy, and downright disgusted? Making changes to your diet has been found to radically reverse poor emotional health, the inability to lose weight, and even chronic illness. Home juicing just may be the catalyst you need to help restore your health—and maybe improve your overall wellbeing
Man Cannot Live on Juice Alone
The concept of juicing at home does not mean you give up on “food.” Juicing is a practice whereby you remove the juice from whole fruits and vegetables, often combining them into a refreshing beverage. This process provides vitamins and nutrients you may not be receiving otherwise. However, a superior juicing recipe may also include the pulp, seeds, and/or skin of your produce so that you garner other important elements such as fiber and minerals.
The purpose of juicing is to provide valuable compounds your body needs and craves in today’s toxic world. Whether we realize it or not, we are bombarded with pollution. It’s very difficult to avoid the poisons traveling through our air, soil, and water at home and in the environment. We need extra doses of beneficial nutrients to combat toxins and protect our precious cells.
Vegetables and fruits contain flavonoids and anthocyanins. These are compounds that help guard our cells from damage. Extensive and/or chronic cellular damage can lead to cancer, heart disease, inflammatory disease, and other unwanted physical ailments. Ingesting anti-oxidants are essential nowadays for keeping the peace within our body.
If you know you’re eating fast food over twice a week, not exercising more than twice a week, drinking alcohol, smoking, and not sleeping enough, you can pretty much count on toxicity within. You may already be feeling the signs:
-can’t lose weight
-get sick often
-have unexplained pain in joints
-constant gas, heartburn, constipation, or diarrhea
Your poor system is probably suffering from inflammation. You may even notice outward signs like poor skin color and texture, more wrinkles, tooth or gum pain, and no energy.
What To Do
You may try gathering information from trustworthy Websites such as GetThrive and VeryWell. Also, check with medical practitioners you trust. Ask friends or co-workers who juice and inquire about their experience.
Another idea is to look up some popular recipes for juicing at home. It’s simple and not very time-consuming. Make a commitment to juicing at least once a day for a month. Remember, it took a long time to get sick. Be patient with your healing process. Not far off, you may start noticing:
- clearer, brighter skin
- a calmer tummy
- weight loss from bloat
- fewer food cravings
- a stronger immune system
- more energy
- overall more contentment
If adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet can improve your physical and mental health, why not try it?
Juicing can be used as a cleanse, a health boost, and a supplement to your regular healthy diet. Always check with your health care provider before embarking on any significant dietary shift. And also, health experts suggest including protein, low carbs, and good fats into your non-juicing meals.
A healthy diet, exercise, and a positive attitude significantly reduce your risk of contracting or developing disease. So think, adding juicing just may improve your internal and external health—a bonus to your overall wellbeing.
Dr. Dave Campbell Commentary
Juicing is one part of a healthy diet, exercise and lifestyle that provides nutrients and is low in calories. It is also a habit that tends to foster other health optimizing habits. Juicing takes time, effort and energy. Spending a few extra minutes a day washing, scraping, cutting and then plopping the fruits and veggies into the juicer will make you think twice later-on when a high-calorie, poorly nutritious, sugar-laden food is calling your name from the fridge. Juicing takes a bit of work. Why waste it on dessert. Juicing has a myriad of positive health benefits and essentially no downside. When combined with good tasting, filling and well-balanced foods, regular modest exercise, and keeping a lid of unhealthy lifestyles like smoking and drinking too much, feeling better is surely just around the corner.
