It is that time again, where many want to set a resolution for the new year. I always get the same question around this time: How do I get started? I thought I would make a quick guide to help anyone get started. Now this shouldn’t be just a quick resolution, so aim for at least a full year of juicing/cleansing. I am on year 3 and I do not plan to stop as I feel it is just part of my daily life now.
Step#1: Buy a good juicer that makes this easy!
The Breville Juice Fountain: The most powerful, fast and easy juicer out there! Put a baggie in the catcher, rinse off the parts when done. Scrub just the blade/mesh basket with soap and water. Done!
The article link above provides some excellent information on how to check your colon health and to keep it as healthy as possible. I do a beet transit test each Sunday as part of my mock fecal transplant therapy that I have posted about many times.
For a normal human you should start to see beet red stool after about 18-24 hours of consuming it. When you have cleansed everything out as I have mentioned before, you see that much faster and you know you are now clear.
This test can tell you a lot of things.
If you never see the beets: you are really constipated and slow moving in the gi.
If you see it too quickly and you have not cleansed, you have IBS-D active.
If you see it in about 12+ hours, you are doing pretty well.
Here is my recipe for today and it was pretty tasty also:
Beet Transit Juice + Choice probiotic
3 small/med beets
1/2 bag cranberries
Coconut water to taste
Please consider the weekly cleanse. I cleanse out with herbal and PH water. I drink this juice and take probiotics to reseed the gi tract.
I have been juicing since January 11th and have been flooding my system with digestive enzymes, probiotics/prebiotics and the goodness of the juice. I don’t consider myself one who has Crohn’s Disease any longer. I say I “had” Crohn’s for 5 years and now I have defeated it and I will continue to destroy any possible signs of it through juicing and diet! People say that this is remission, but I am in this remission without the help of any medication. I am healing and not covering it up!! I am now convinced that the doctors are there to keep you just healthy enough through medications and the future is dark this way.
When you have Crohn’s the villi or hairlike structures that line your intestines become flattened. This makes it impossible to absorb food and digest. It basically goes directly through you! Juicing provides life to this villi and allows it to absorb nutrients. The digestive enzymes within the juice help to break down the food you eat and help to fuel the body. This process of juicing is rebooting the body as Joe Cross would tell you. Your body gets the chance to get the fuel it needs and begins to remember how to heal.
Now if you continue to eat processed foods, chemicals, fast food and other garbage, you will be right back where you started again. It is a life change and you have to want it. This is what I am doing and it is working!!! Jump on the juice train and get off of the same old trip of prescriptions, doctors and eventual surgery.
Don’t ever believe that this is a life sentence. Make the changes and feel the benefits!!
