Juice cleansing is an effective way to induce dynamic healing within the body. Over time the body fills with toxins and begins to work less efficiently. This is due to eating cooked and processed foods, bad food combining, high protein diets, eating late at night, stress, pollution and overeating. This leads to fermentation and harmful intercellular gases in the digestive tract. Juice cleansing is effective because the food is already broken down and essentially predigested. By cleansing the digestive system is able to rest and return to a homeostatic state because not as much energy is being consumed to break down foods.
A dirty digestive system is the root of degenerative and acute illness. By starting with the gut, we can start at the source. Juice cleansing allows a break from the exertion of digestion and thus increases vital force throughout the body. This vital force enables an immunological response by the body to cleanse and heal.
How It Works
Juice cleansing in particular can help boost immunity throughout the body because all of the foods that are in the juices are alkalizing. If done properly, all of the body’s needs are me through an ideal combination of protein, carbohydrates, fats, salts, vitamins, and minerals. The juice pulls endogenous acids (toxins) from body cells and restore them into the blood stream where they are expelled and processed through normal waste function.
Juicing is not for everyone. No two bodies are the same and it is important to honor your body and what it needs. Some individuals do better on a cleanse where they eat simple raw vegan whole foods. It is also important not to over cleanse or stay in the cleanse for too long. The body needs to be nourished in order to build and repair itself. By cleansing once a year and building strength through healing nutrition you can help your body thrive!
Snow shoveling can lead to body aches and pains. Here are some tips to help alleviate some of these issues.
1. Try warming up your muscles a bit before going out to shovel.
2. Stretch before and after.
3. Lift heavy snow using your knees… not your shoulders and back.
4. Take breaks if there’s a lot of shoveling to be done… this will help to avoid strain.
5. Take a hot shower or bath or apply moist heat to those sore areas.
And, if this doesn’t alleviate your soreness and/or pain, consult a certified massage therapist at Living Arts Wellness
