Juice Feasting Diary - Addendum

I need to add a couple of notes about juice feasting. It's not something that you just jump into without researching it. . . When you begin juicing, your colon shuts down because there is no fiber in your diet to activate your colon. However, your body will be dumping toxins into your colon, so you need to be doing enemas or colon hydrotherapy to get those toxins out of your body. Juice feasting gives your digestive system a rest and lets your body concentrate on cleaning out the toxins.

Another thing that you need to be careful about is coming off a juice feast. Since your colon is basically shut down during the juicing, you need to reactivate it slowly, two different ways of doing this is with prunes or drinking green smoothies. Depending on how long you've been juicing is how long you spend coming off the juicing. Since I only did 7 days, I spent 2 days on green smoothies, and took an herbal colon cleanse formula to get my colon back into action.

Happy Green Health!
