Feeling more alive! Easing back into juicing

Posted by on February 21, 2014 at 10:33 am.

Recently I’ve been  thinking about juicing… a lot! Since I normally take this as a sign of my body telling me what it needs I’ve been upping the amount of freshly prepared juices (and smoothies) that I consume and reducing my solid foods.  I have to say that I feel awesome!

This past year, when I talked about candida, I mentioned the things I occasionally craved were flour based products and while my choices whole grain bread my body still rejected them and caused me to itch and have a whole host of other unpleasant symptoms. It’s still a bit of a puzzle on the how and why it got so out of control. I’m not a big sweet eater, in fact, I didn’t eat too much bread. The main foods I consume are whole foods, despite the why candida raised it’s itchy big head, I’m happy to say that most of the symptoms are gone. In fact, I can consume wheat without a reaction, but you know something? I don’t crave that anymore.

I do believe I’ll be transitioning once again to drinking juices. Currently, I’m not sure how long I’ll be consuming them, but I would like to go a few weeks. I have a lot of energy, but I’ve found that consuming only juices gives me even more.

 

To get myself properly charged for the upcoming juicing adventures, I’m rewatching Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. I’ve written about Joe Crosses documentary before. While I can’t relate to the stories on a personal level, I still find the two men featured in this documentary to be extremely inspiring!  I knew, if they could conquer all their health issues and come of their medication. I don’t take any medication;  and I never have had to take them for anything besides the minor cold. In fact, the past several years I haven’t taken any of those,  instead I chose foods that not only taste good but equip my body with natural resistance to a variety of health issues.

The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet

In addition, I ordered the book Reboot with Joe Juice Diet by Joe Cross. It’s a book I’ve enjoyed reading, but up until recently I hadn’t purchased it for myself. It should be here tomorrow.

While weight loss and health isn’t my issue, I do enjoy reading books on how other people have turned their health. That to me is encouraging! In addition, this serves as another great reference when working with others who are looking to make natural changes with their life. In the past, a few people I’ve worked with were able to come off their medication. They took the initiative and realized that their choices can make them healthy or stand in the way and make them ill.

    I’ve seen his documentary a few times but am thinking about his book(s) soon as well! Looking forward to more juicing myself, too!

    @Jennifer, I found it very inspirational, and since stumbling upon it last year I usually watch it before getting back into a juices only. While his story was inspirational, I think the one I liked most was Phil Staples. Well you should post about it when you do, already rounded up one person to join me on my juicing only, not sure how long they’ll be along for the ride, but we’ll see!
