I have gotten a few challenge responses here or there that really try to shoot down the benefits of juicing and what the goal of this blog site really is. (These individuals are usually ones who have never tried or have tried and given up on juicing quickly.) The goal of this site is to share information and to help others with outside the box thinking. The goal is not to make money from advertising and WordPress does not allow that anyway. Plus, after writing over 200+ posts and answering every single inquiry within 1 day, my goal is clearly to help others who need new ideas.
After talking with a parent the other day about the benefits of juicing, I came up with an interesting way of thinking about why it truly works if you give it a good try. Think about how drinking soda causes weight gain, spikes sugar levels and many other health ailments or how drinking alcohol dries you out and causes fatigue. If what you drink in these cases causes so many documented health problems, then it is highly probable that drinking the juices from fruits, veggies and herbs can cause the complete opposite. If you would like to seek out and watch Superjuice Me or Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, you will see what I mean about progress.
Why do I feel energized from wake to sleep? Why do I feel mentally clear and quicker? Why is my immunity through the roof when others catch every cold that comes by? Why have my allergies disappeared? The only thing that I do differently that others do not is drink juices once daily 7 days a week. I feel the benefits and I can see the healing that takes place, but you have to commit to it for at least 1-3+ months to really see the positive changes. Many do it for a few weeks, stop and then say it does not work.
Thus ends my rant on the benefits of juicing. I will continue to do this for myself and as I keep encountering others who state that its is just a fad, good luck to you. I will keep at it for myself:)
If you do believe in this way and are dedicated to healing yourself, stay tuned.
Have a great Valentine’s Day!
