Hi guys. Here’s a short introductory article for those of you thinking about trying out the big health craze otherwise known as juicing. Not only that, this juicing goes a step further. It moves on to the next big thing among health fanatics. That’s known as detoxing. We thought we’d give you a few basic guidelines on how you go about selecting some of the best detox juice recipes for you. And we thought we’d give you some tips on how your approach towards implementing a detoxifying program, purely through juicing should be taken.
When we first thought about writing this article for you guys, we were gleefully thinking about listing a few awesome organic juice cleanse or detox recipes for you, but then thought, no, wait a minute. What if there are readers like you out there who still need to learn intensely what juicing is all about and why some folks need to go on a detox program every few months.
What is detox?
The word ‘detox’ is the popular online abbreviation for the formative ‘detoxification’. The word can be closely related to the above mentioned juice cleanse, or cleansing. In fact, the two words; detox and cleanse, essentially mean the same thing. When you go on a short detox juice diet, you are basically cleansing your body of all its harmful toxins accumulated over months of thoughtless accumulations of foods you could have, or should have avoided.
Why detox with juice?
Here, juice goes two ways. It’s not the popular fruit juice you need to take into account. When determining what are the best detox juice recipes for you, you’re going to need to include a whole lot of vegetables too. The idea of drinking veggie juice is still a surreal concept for many, but boy oh boy, you do not know what you are missing. Folks have no idea just how tasty and yummy veggie juices really are. And when you mix your vegetables with fruit and even with other healthy ingredients like fat free yogurt, walnut milk and healthy spices, the taste sensations are pretty awesome.
Enough questions, time for you to read
There was another perception before that said that hot spices were no good for you. That’s not true; it’s actually extremely good for you. Cayenne and turmeric, for instance, also have detoxification properties that you dare not ignore. And have you ever wondered why the Indians, who made hot curries so famous, well, most of them anyway, are so good looking and trim. The spices also have properties that help to suppress the human body’s desire to overeat, but in a healthy sort of way, just like feasting on a ripe, green, soft and creamy avocado pear which, incidentally, is a fruit, not a vegetable.
Okay, so we only asked two questions on your behalf. But it’s fair to say that we started to make our point. Don’t go juicing to detox your body, not if you don’t need to. Don’t go on a strict detox diet unless you know for certain that you’re healthy enough. You get this right by checking in with your local GP. If you’re pregnant, you might starve your unborn child of essential nourishments which cannot be obtained directly from the detox juice recipes on the internet that you might be attracted to.
And that’s really the final point that we wanted to make. While you’re never going to be forgetting all the health benefits, you should be thinking along firm favorites in terms of flavors and fruits and vegetables your body is already used to.
