“Fasting is the greatest remedy– the physician within.”
Philippus Paracelsus, one of the three fathers of Western medicine
“Due to [the] effects of fasting, a fast can help you heal with greater speed; cleanse your liver, kidneys, and colon; purify your blood; help you lose excess weight and water; flush out toxins; clear the eyes and tongue; and cleanse the breath.”
James F. Balch, M.D., in Prescription for Nutritional Healing
“I often observe in the fasting participants that by four days of fasting, concentration seems to improve, creative thinking expands, depression lifts, insomnia stops, anxieties fade, the mind becomes more tranquil and a natural joy begins to appear. It is my hypothesis that when the physical toxins are cleared from the brain cells, mind-brain function automatically and significantly improves and spiritual capacities expands.”
Gabriel Cousins, M.D. (psychiatry)
Thought I would post some great quotes I found. Still going strong and feeling better already. I’m not going to post all my juices, but I’ll try. An interesting note, I’m on Day 2 of my juice fast and somehow I found the energy and want to rake the entire yard, sweep and clean up leaves from the entire back porch, mow the lawn, and then I went in and cleaned both bathrooms and put up like 6 loads of laundry. ? ! ? ! Yep-sure did!
The juice below is usually what I start off with in the mornings. It’s a sweet one, I then alternate through the day with sweet, green, sweet, green. But actually, they are all sweet since you can come up with your own concoctions.
